The Midlands club were trying to play everything through the talented Grealish and he had a chance early in the second half to level things up when he went past a couple of players and got into the box but his shot was straight at Fulham's keeper. "There's not many better feelings than this".

"I think people were coming to the end of their contracts and stuff".

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. This is our project, this Fulham is my club, my staff. "We showed we could follow the style that we followed for the past two years, in this stadium". "Like in tennis, we lost one match point", he said.

We saw in this past Premier League season that keeping a Championship core can bring you a successful season.

His latest success will only make him even more sought after, so if the 49-year-old is to stay, he will want enough funds to be able to compete with the English elite. "I believe what we're doing here is something special".

Brighton, for example, kept faith with veteran striker Glenn Murray after his 23 goals played a major part in their elevation to the Premier League for the first time, before then firing 12 goals in the top flight to steer them to safety.

"I don't know (whether I will still be at Fulham next season)".

The truck was registered to Mendez Trucking, of Belleville, and had "In God We Trust" emblazoned on the back of it. In the accident were students of the 5th class . "We also thank the first responders who did a tremendous job".

"I am so excited for my club, for these supporters", Jokanovic told Sky Sports. "In my eyes in the last two years we have been the best team in this league".

Fulham's Tim Ream (right) challenges Aston Villa's Jack Grealish (centre). It's a dream come true. "For me, Fredericks should have had a red card", he said. We all are. With a big game, it's tough to swallow.

After winning promotion at Wembley and Fulham heading to the top tier, Mitro was asked about his own future.

"We have to take it on the chin, it is very disappointing".

Captaining his side yet again, the 27-year-old was a key component in the midfield battle up against tough opposition in Robert Snodgrass, Mile Jedinak and Conor Hourihane.

No wonder the Serbian forward says: 'I'm so exhausted right now, like never in my life, I swear.
