Review:
Holy crap. We are in the Premier League! After a terrible game at Wembley where Huddersfield defended for the whole of the first half, we scored with an own goal (that Ryan Yates might have got to anyway) and then survived two penalty calls (both of which looked likely to be given until VAR confirmed they weren't) to get us back into the top tier after 22 years.

Stats:
Our first appearance at Wembley for just over 30 years (since the League Cup Final of 1992 )
We are in the Premier League for the first time in 23 years, since the end of the 1998-99 season.
Our largest attendance since the League Cup final of 1980 (when we were watched by 96,527 against Wolves)
