‘The best thing to happen to this club in a very long time’ – Aston Villa fans loving key figure’s update



Aston Villa fans thanked Dr Tony Xia for his impact on the club after last night’s win.

Villa are through to the play-off final after beating Middlesbrough 1-0 over two legs. They still have a tough task ahead of them because Fulham will impose themselves on Villa in the final through their possession-based style. However, honours were even in the regular season because they both won the home matches when they faced each other in the league.

The scoreline may have been close, but Villa had the better chances over the two legs with Mile Jedinak’s header from a corner being the difference. They had a longer time to prepare than their play-off rivals due to securing a place early, but not being in contention for an automatic spot, whereas, the Cottagers missed out on the final day due to losing to Birmingham.

Dr Xia is yet to see his side in the Premier League under his ownership after buying them in May 2016 when they were relegated, but they will certainly fancy their chances over one leg in what is likely to be a nervy affair against Fulham. Regardless, they have certainly come a long way under his ownership after the mess they were in back in 2016.

This is the tweet from Dr Tony Xia after the victory:
