Promotion Playoff Final Open Thread

Will it be jubilation for Crystal Palace again? Or will Watford's magic continue? - Paul Gilham

Crystal Palace and Watford meet at Wembly for the right to play in the Premiership next season.

Doing anything this Memorial Day? No? How about some soccer.

It's Watford and Crystal Palace meeting for the chance to play in the Premiership. This is the final part of this year's promotion and relegation battle. Cardiff City and Hull City have already secured their place in next year's Premiership by placing first and second respectively in this year's Championship. Crystal Palace beat Brighton and Hove Albion 2-0 on aggregate to advance to the final. Watford beat Leicester City 3-2 in very dramatic fashion to secure their place in today's match.

By the way, dramatic fashion may be a wee bit of an understatement.

For Crystal Palace, they are trying to get back into top flight since the first time since 2004-05. Watford was last in the Premiership in 2006-07. For those curious, Newcastle picked up a win and a draw against Watford in that season. The Mags didn't fair nearly as well against Crystal Palace in 2004-05, as it was the Eagles picking up a win and a draw.

It's 90 minutes to see who joins the Premiership. Follow along with us.
