    They're coming up fast.

    The first legs are on 5/11 and 5/12, with the second legs on 5/14 and 5/15 and the final on 5/26.

    Who's coming up with Wolves and either Fulham or Cardiff? Will Jack Harrison pull Boro up singlehandedly?

    Been on ESPN this year, so it'll be on one of their platforms, at least ESPN+ if not on TV

    Hard to say... the Football League created a subscription streaming service to televise the Championship (and other) games, but not all the Championship teams participate. BeIN seems to have abandoned the Championship. "ESPN 3" (their streaming platform) shows some Championship matches, as does Fox Soccer. But so far I can't find anything definitive about how to watch the games.

    livesoccertv.com, but specifically for the Championship:
    http://www.livesoccertv.com/competitions/england/championship/

    Nothing on those matches yet so maybe give them a few days.

    They have an app, too, which I use all the time.

    The semis are on ESPN+ on ESPN’s schedule, so just a question of whether it winds up on a network too. The network schedule is only out as far as next week. Hopefully at least the promotion finals make TV.

    Fulham at home today. They need to win to erase a 1-0 loss away in the first leg.

    And they pull it off with the 2-0 win. Have a tiny soft spot for Fulham from all the yanks that have played there , also last time I was in England I went to Craven Cottage and saw them play Norwitch, lovely little stadium. I'd def pull for them over Boro though I'll be somewhat split if it's Villa.

    I’m kind of Fulham all the way. Might have rooted for Middlesbrough if Harrison had been getting real time, but there’s no point in it the way things stand.

    Jack Harrison does not feature in the 2nd Leg. Villa draws Middlesborough 0-0 and advance 1-0 on aggregate. Will face Fulham in the Playoff Final.

    Watch, next season he’ll go on loan and CFG will make absolutely certain he features regularly in matches.

    And in all seriousness, he was fighting an uphill battle being a mid-season loanee, he was never going to get serious minutes with that setup. Being with a club for an entire year from training camp on will be a better situation for both sides.

    Lol. Always happy to see Pulis lose. What a festering hemmorhoidal blight on the ass of English football.

    It seems odd that they scheduled the final on the same day as the Champions League final.

    Fulham coming up from one goal scored when the Villa defense (read: John Terry) slept on a through-ball.

    Scrappy-ass game.
