"We've got a Villa fan making the kit, a Villa fan as manager and a Villa fan as captain."
The words of Jack Grealish to Sky Sports seem to sum up what has made the difference at Aston Villa. It's a togetherness, a brotherhood. People who care and want the best for the club.
Not to mention a future king in the stands.
One of the biggest clubs in the country, once a European Cup winner on a famous night in Rotterdam, now back in the elite.
Derby County did the EFL proud too, showing passion, heart and a never-say-die attitude. They just could not find a way through that Villa collective despite a late rally.
For Villa though, this is only the start of it, the Premier League will be a tough test for the players, but tonight is about celebration.
"We'll get steaming," joked John McGinn. They deserve it.
Thanks for your company during this topsy-turvy EFL season. See you in August.
