I’d suspect that like me there are a fair few other Chelsea supporters who always look forward to the Championship Play-Off Final.
It’s a unique occasion that demonstrates the huge range of emotions this wonderful game of ours stirs.
For the winners, heartfelt joy knowing that the Premier League beckons, for the losers, it’s absolute heartbreak.
But this year there’s added interest as far as Chelsea supporters are concerned with Aston Villa taking on Derby County which, in turn, pits two Chelsea legends against each other with John Terry being assistant to Dean Smith at Villa and Frank Lampard being in the managerial hot seat at Derby.
There’s also further interest for Chelsea supporters in the Derby camp with Ashley Cole set to start along with two young Chelsea players who are at the club on loan-deals, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori plus we shouldn’t forget that Tammy Abraham, with 26 goals, has been an essential part of Villa’s rise to the Play-Off Final.
With the kick-off, at Wembley Stadium, set for 15:00 hours (UK time), the excitement is starting to build, but I have one big question for you all to ponder – who do you want to win?
Me! I’m going for Derby County!
