I couldn't believe it when Bielsa was shown and a caption underneath said he had guided them to their best Championship finish for 15 years,as I have said earlier I don't believe in the play offs,a team that finished at least seven points behind Leeds will get promoted to the Premiership,and it could be a team nine points behind.in the years before the play offs it gave teams who were in no danger of going up or down the opportunity to use the last few matches to blood young players

Would be a good move @Peter mate, we need a few older hands to bring the Young ones on, im happy how we done, not surprised by the outcome and thinking it could be worse, we could be billions in Debt and still not won owt.

Cracking game, no affinity for any of the play-off teams, but I now hope FLDC beat Villa, cheating & diving team that they are.

Without the play offs you wouldn't have games like this and they keep a lot of teams with something to play for all season.

All teams cheat and dive - that's modern day football - if you want to go back to the good old days and watch genuine players , go and watch the ladies teams before they become 'more professional' and too much money gets involved.

Women’s football is the most awful standard imaginable. The top level women’s players would be lucky to play at conference level in the men’s game and that’s being generous.

Your lot did better than mine Wisey. Relegated to the bottom tier.
We build again. Just keep German chairmen / wanna be managers away from the club and we will be fine

That's the Championship, and why I much prefer it to the Prem. It's nice to see your side win and get to the Prem, and I'm sure Leeds could have spent a few quid and done ok, but most teams really struggle when they get promoted. It then becomes a constant fight to stay up, more so for the massive amount of cash the clubs get, only to go on the ridiculous wages the clubs have to pay, etc etc. In my dreams I would wish the top six in the Prem, to go play among themselves, and leave the rest and the Championship, to have a league of their own.

@Wise Owl , no need to dish up humble pie to you Wisey as you didn't give it the Big One at any stage, just hope that you feel a tad better when your Gert dishes up your pudding tonight.......................

@Wise Owl , Dave I truely feel for you fella. it's hard to believe that Leeds have been away from the Prem for so long, but just goes to show just how hard it is to get out of the Championship, the hardest division to get out off, especially with the money from parachute payments that clubs relegated from the Prem bring with them. There seems to be a window of 2 maybe 3 seasons to get out and back up before it becomes almost a Catch 22 situation.

I heard a story that the money Sky Make outta Leeds they dont want us promoted, the amount of money our Fans Generate to away games the FL dont want us up. i dont believe it but.... the way the FL went about Spygate keeping us on tenter hooks, the way we get Punished where other teams for the same crime get away with it, the way we played second games to sheff United knowing we had to get a result, ok they could have lost but hey im not making excuses but sometimes we are used as an example. Well done the teams that go up i hope ya can do the Bizzo (y)(y)

Oh well, at least we get to play each other again next year, as we crumbled away (like usual) and just missed the PO’s
