All three of the clubs promoted in 2017 survived relegation this past season for only the third time in Premier League history.
Fulham prevailed, recording a 1-0 win that means they will be in the Premier League next season.
Terry has been an integral character in Aston Villa's side this season; featuring 32 times in the Championship - helping them secure fourth spot - as well as registering a herculean defensive display in their 1-0 aggregate win over Middlesbrough during the playoff semifinals.
Ahmed Elmohamady thanked the fans for all their support throughout the season, and promised them Aston Villa will do everything they can to get back to the Premier League next season.
"Me personally, I would like him to stay". This is our project, this Fulham is my club, my staff.
"Yeah, I can understand what he's saying", Davies said. "We must adapt and be clever, we must not make one step back. We needed two and a half years", he said.
"It depends what kind of ambition we are going to show, this is simple", he said of Fulham's prospects for 2018-19.
It came pretty much against the run of play, with Villa now needing to pick up the pieces and stage a comeback. "We must try and dominate against teams we believe we can dominate".
For a team that froze on the final day of the regular Championship season, in turn forcing them into the play-offs, they displayed enormous steel, fight, and plenty of personality here.
With emotions still running high after Cairney's goal, Fulham got lucky when defender Ryan Fredericks avoided a red card after appearing to deliberately stamp on Grealish.
"It was so unfortunate but I am so relieved", the 30-year-old Belgian told BBC Radio London.
Asked of his future, he remained somewhat coy - suggesting his focus was on the upcoming World Cup with his country and that he was contractually still a Newcastle player, though admitting he would be more than happy with a return to Fulham next season. Despite getting hit repeatedly by the flag being waved by the guy in front of me, the atmosphere is electric and the energy of fans is incredible.
