I would assume (and hope) that there are two recruitment lists for most of the names I have seen rely on our promotion. I would love to have most of them onboard but feel 3 or 4 hungry young guns either internal or external would allow us to regroup and go again with added vigour and quality.

Lets put all this into perspective lads. The reason we are all gutted and some are looking to blame this player or that one or lack of investment or Bubs stubborness is because we have had the best season in decades. We have been battling for automatic promotion for all season long and still are. If some one had said last summer we would have done that i would have give him one of my wry looks. The fact is we have done it and that's why it so disappointing to see automatic slipping away but if we had been in Villas position and come through at the death to clinch a play off place we would be over the moon. Nothing in life is easy especially if you are a Leeds fan.
Yes we needed a few more who could ease the burden on the lads who have given their all every game this season. Bielsaball is a hard demanding style and its a long season so let's be proud the lads got us to where we are. Agree that play offs are a bit of a lottery but why should we not win it. Think it will be us and Brom in final if it goes that way and we can beat them. Its never over till its over and i for one applaud Bubs and the team for an exciting and nerve wracking season. MOT.

Great words Bige!

23 Apr 2019 12:09:16
I agree BIGE but it still hurts nonetheless.

23 Apr 2019 12:24:53
Leo What will hurt more is Bige eating my shorts over the summer.

23 Apr 2019 12:40:47
Well said Bige. Lotteries are there to be won and there is no reason that it cannot be us.

Yet again you are the voice of reason

I have LOVED this season. Even now, I am pinching myself when I look at the table. I just can't believe we are so high up with the players we have. not knocking the players at all, but when you consider the spending of other teams in this division I think we are doing amazingly well.

The football is brilliant to watch, I will be happy watching that every year no matter what division we are in

I find it ironic that when we had McCormack and Wood firing in loads of goals we were hanging in on many games and now we have the games virtually won we just don't have that finishers!

still, as I have said before, none of our recent prolific strikers have done well in their first season with us so I expect Bamford to be a revelation next season.

23 Apr 2019 11:30:38
Totally fed up but form since Xmas not been good enough, can't loose to the teams we did and expect to be champions.
Think we all feel crap because we were so close, did need players in Jan and didn't get them in but that is history now.
We need to finish 3rd as don't fancy villa or west brom, think we can beat derby or boro and then final is a one off.
If we get to final and play villa/ brom, they are very attacking but do concede as not best defensively and that will suit us.
Be great if was villa and got revenge over 1996 league cup final defeat ( I was at wembly) , they in form but would fancy our chances.
Let's try to stay positive as we are 3rd and having an extended season, think we may still go up.
Still need a couple of points to guarantee 3rd, so can't change whole team but would tinker and rest Pablo for next 2 games.
I personally would like to see Izzy get those games and see if he can impress, can't be worse than Roberts, can't hit the target and runs like he sh*t himself.
Also big call for Shackleton, has skill, energy and is direct, swap for Harrison. Stop playing Dallas please and lastly KP not forshaw.

We are supposed to have the best manager apart from The top two teams it would seem now it’s all down to him to pull this one out of the hat!, I think it’s going to be Leeds v villa in the end, no complaints about play off it’s is what it is, we shouldn’t have been in this spot in the first place,

23 Apr 2019 13:23:19
Sorry Mel and Whitey, someone came out with the stat that form starting November puts us 9th! Just enjoying our (overall) marvellous season but as for play offs. As Saint Doris once said - What will be, will be.

23 Apr 2019 10:34:39
For many years I have argued vehemently that a League competition should never be decided on by an end of season lottery. There is no sporting justification for the play offs. It is purely a money grabbing, financial one. There is no inate fairness in a team that has proved itself over a long hard slog over differing pitches in changeable weather being denied by a team who have only hit form in March/ April or bought wisely in January.
No the only people who truly prosper from the play offs are the EFL (and the winners) . It should not be that the team who could only manage to come sixth should have the chance to steal the riches of the Premier League from the team who has fought its way over a long season to the third position. A team in sixth position is there for a reason. There are five teams more deserving. We should not have a situation where a league contest is decided by a Cup Final, potentially also decided by a flukey goal against an injury ravaged team. I am sorry if this is a rant but a team who is the third best in the Championship should have its just reward and no, this is not because of our position now, I have felt this for years.

I have to agree with everything you say, the playoffs, when they started, were valid. They were introduced to reduce the number of teams in the PL, it's well past time they were done with. (and I'm not just saying that because of where we may finish) sorry for the condensed history lesson, but there may be kiddies about that don't know 😁😁.

23 Apr 2019 11:31:26
I love the playoffs. Don't really like losing in them but the idea is brilliant and its a great showpiece. Why not give the team in 6th the opportunity to go up? It keeps it interesting for all those teams below 3rd or 4th for much longer and keeps the league much more competitive. The team in 3rd will always complain about it but what if you are the team in 6th?

Btw we are not guaranteed 3rd yet so that wouldn't necessarily be us anyway.

23 Apr 2019 11:57:05
Sorry Alf usually agree with your thoughts but its a league not a knockout cup. The only reason it exists is to make more money for a few people and the only people who care are the 4 teams taking part. Everyone else could care less. Why give the sixth best team over a season the chance to go up with a flukey goal of the defenders backside. I know it's a much tainted word but is that Fair after 46 games?

23 Apr 2019 16:31:13
With you Leodis. What also happened to playing against one of the teams facing relegation!? As we are in 3rd, I’d definitely scrap the playoffs today!

23 Apr 2019 09:09:28
In the excitement of the last few weeks, I missed the fact that tonight's under 23 cup clash was likely to be all ticket! So I'll be watching on the app! In the wake of yesterday, an opportunity for these guys to make a last minute claim for some squad time for probable play offs.

Imagine Izzy will start, one last chance? Jack Clarke could do with a run out, still doesn't look the same as he did before his illness.

Other one to watch is Jordan Stevens, given our struggles on the wing, he is a real possibility for a squad place. Still think Bogusz, kun, and Edmondson are long shots, but here's a stage and a cracking performance might just raise that possibility!

23 Apr 2019 10:16:58
I have the app but can't watch anything am I doing something wrong.
I click on live coverage and says well notify you when live coverage is available.
Any help Spanish would great.

23 Apr 2019 11:32:33
I missed that as well Spanish : (.

23 Apr 2019 12:10:06
The game's sold out, so no tickets on the day, it's getting as hard to watch t' young uns as the first team 😁.

23 Apr 2019 12:12:01
It should only say that before the game kicks off. With the under 23 games it only starts minutes before kick off. You have to be registered as an lutv user and logged in. Good luck!

23 Apr 2019 12:29:40
Agree with Spanish I usually forego the first couple of minute, switch on, and it works everytime. Good Luck tonight.

Just Wanted to wish ALL of our posters on a here a good week this week. To say the Easter weekend hasn't worked out for us might be a bit like saying brexits proved a tricky to sort out! And it was my birthday weekend!

These weekends take you to places where it's easy to forget football is a game and a sport. When you pick up the paper and read about Sri Lanka and a young journalist losing her life, It brings the perspective back just a bit!

Let's look around and appreciate the people who matter in our lives, some of whom we might occasionally neglect for a bit of White and Yellow and others who share the passion with us.

We have a coach who at a moment when he probably felt as wretched as he has all season and who could easily have pointed fingers, took it upon himself to change his habits and go to each and every one of his players pitch side. Class shows at the most difficult moments!

Best wishes for the week ahead to everyone and thanks for the posts.

Thanks Spanish I agree with your sentiments but it still hurts and will do for days to come.

23 Apr 2019 10:37:57
Well said Spanish, the worst Easter weekend I can remember, feel numb . But as you say it’s only a game and there are many people who are going through much worse .

23 Apr 2019 10:42:17
Nice and succinct post Spanish. Marching on TOGETHER.

23 Apr 2019 11:34:10
We have a great opportunity to prepare for the playoffs now unlike other teams who are still fighting for a place. Let's focus on that and make sure we are 100% right mentally and physically fit ready for the final push.

23 Apr 2019 16:33:49
That was class Spanish, and brought a tear to my eye. Great touch from the gaffer.

23 Apr 2019 08:10:39
not been on here a while as went to Rome (first person i find in a bar was a Leeds fan) then come home to find out my mother passed away and today would of been her 56 birthday and if that wasn't depressing enough Leeds then fall to bits!

Safe to say normal season is over and now lotto of playoffs so for my own mental health i have written us off and would like to say well done to villa on their promotion!

been a 50-50 season for me, at the start i would of bit your hand for playoffs and to of watched the football we had.

on the other hand top at Christmas to then fall to bits is very poor, plus our form against poor teams is woeful. finally MB has not been able to address the same problems, form against poor, direct teams. Conversion of chances (which he can't really help) and soft touch at the back (which he can help).

so we know mb is good, now time to see if he is great. can he turn us around and get us firing again. all teams are under pressure in playoffs so no reason to bottle. On our day we can beat the best, so let's see what MB can pull out of the bag

either way promotion or not, still proud to be Leeds, and rather be a non-league Leeds fan than Champsions League elite fan of a different team

Our thoughts are with you Bermo.

23 Apr 2019 11:36:14
3 games like the ones against Derby, West Brom or Sheff Weds are possible - ER bouncing for the semi final, Wembley bouncing and WHITE for the final? Come on - its do-able.

23 Apr 2019 11:39:55
Thoughts with you and you family Berm, at this incredibly difficult time.

23 Apr 2019 12:11:44
Sorry to hear about your loss, Berm.

23 Apr 2019 12:49:10
My condolences and thoughts go out to you Berm.

As far as our team is concerned, your last sentence sums up my views perfectly. MOT.

23 Apr 2019 16:07:19

23 Apr 2019 16:23:01
Sorry for your loss Bw.

23 Apr 2019 16:34:39
Sad news Bermo. Condolences to you and your family.

23 Apr 2019 20:39:51
Sad news, BW.
Let's hope a play off final win will cheer you up a bit.
But please, if we get there don't go! 😉.

23 Apr 2019 07:58:55
I really hope we go up with a win at Wembley. I was there when we lost to Sunderland and to Doncaster. Was at the Millenium when we lost to Watford. Saw the debacles at Histon, Sutton and Newport plus too many others to remember Would just like them to get it right this time like when I saw Clarke and the rest of them do it. Not like Chelsea, Liverpool. Seen them all. I used to play cricket with one of the European cup team who lost in the final - he said he got it wrong too. Just get it right this time.

It's all part of Bub's plan, he said earlier in the season that he wanted to go to Wembley but not as a spectator 😁😁😁.

Really respect the honesty and reality of the posts on here. No words to describe how we feel. We are still in the pot for the playoffs . Think we need to focus our preparations for those games from now on try and rest the players.

Agree1 Disagree0

23 Apr 2019 07:10:47
Think we will go up but not this year get 3 or 4 in the summer and go again next season our form since Christmas is a worry but the Future is bright and its been a beck of a season and maybe 5 more games to go.

23 Apr 2019 08:09:19
Think we need to make better use of the loan market next season which ever league were in, Brown?, Baker poor, Harrison too inconsistent.

23 Apr 2019 09:27:59
Jeez I feel so down today, thought we were woeful yesterday, but honestly if you offered me the play offs at beginning of year would probably have took that, just hoped we’re raised so high throughout, to throw it all away like we did in last 2 games is gutting, MOT.
