Aston Villa fans take to Twitter after securing top six place - Aston Villa

Back in summer 2018, when Aston Villa were in financial crisis having lost to Fulham in the 2018 playoff final, they’d never have imagined being in the 2019 promotion picture. Dean Smith has worked miracles, though, and the Villains are well placed to be back in the Premier League as they secured their place in the playoffs yesterday.

It always helps when you can put together a record number of consecutive league wins, no matter what club you are, and that is exactly what Aston Villa have done over the last seven weeks. Ten straight wins have seen them rise from 11th to 5th, and what an achievement it is from the boyhood Villa fan Dean Smith. The next step for the Villains will be to go one step further than last year, but it won’t be easy.

With top six all wrapped up, they’ll now be playing for 4th place, and as they sit just two points behind West Brom it’s certainly attainable. The fans will be kicking themselves that they didn’t start this magnificent run sooner, though, as if they had they could have been in with a shot of crashing the automatic promotion party for either Leeds or Sheffield United. Regardless of that, the playoffs will have to suffice for now, and they’ll be confident of going one step better this time.

You can read the Villains’ reaction as they secured a top-six spot here:

The Villains couldn’t be happier at the moment, and the only thing that would top this ecstasy would be going forward and gaining promotion back to the top flight.
