Bruce hits out after Fulham foil Villa bid

Image Text
 ON THE RISE Slavisa Jokanovic and Aleksandar Mitrovic

Sessegnon and Tom Cairney, who scored the victor, will still be targeted over the coming months but Fulham, and billionaire owner Shahid Khan, have the financial muscle to resist overtures for a player many felt deserved an England World Cup call-up.

There was great work from teenager Ryan Sessegnon and the Englishman played a slide rule ball into the box for the on rushing Tom Cairney. I believe what we are doing here is special and I've said for a while that we've been playing Premier League football in the Championship.

The deafening sound as Fulham celebrated promotion under the Wembley arch gave a whole new meaning to white noise, for Slavisa Jokanovic's slow-burning, swaggering side had finally got over the line. "We needed two and a half years", Jokanovic said.

The risk, as typified by Denis Odoi's wild kick on Jack Grealish to pick up his second yellow card, is that they can sometimes overindulge but they are mightily good fun.

The Championship play-off final is always an entertaining match.

Steve Bruce's Villa side were active throughout but failed to truly threaten a side which finished one place and five points above them in the final Championship table.

Nadal, Djokovic romp into Rome quarter-finals
Next up for Ramos-Vinolas is a meeting with Novak Djokovic, who eased past Nikoloz Basilashvili 6-4 6-2. Cilic will play 10th-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta, who beat Aljaz Bedene 6-4, 6-7, 6-2.


"I have got a lot of responsibly in this team and I try and make us play". "But let's not forget we are Aston Villa, a proud club, a big club. What I prefer to say is I know he wants to stay with us".

Jack Grealish suddenly got involved in the game and he forced a save from goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli after a superb slaloming dribble through the Fulham defence.

Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are among the clubs linked with Ryan Sessegnon of Fulham in the summer transfer window. "We know what is ahead of us".

The 27-year-old would be an addition of intent for the Villains, and perhaps the marquee signing that the fans would expect, should they be promoted at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

Despite being under pressure throughout the second half, Tom Cairney's first-half finish proved enough for their often-promising season to end in glory.

Having seen his team take the lead just five minutes before it was a insane thing to do and serious questions have to be asked of the assistant referee for not deeming it a red card offence.
