    Play-offs.

    Major job to lift the players for the play-offs now..personally think we have blown it..players can't handle pressure as proven in the last 2 games.

    Those who finish in the play-offs will hardly be worried about us will they?

    Season defined by a very poor January transfer window.

    Gutted but not surprised by this failure.

    Was thinking about the playoffs too Rev, do we freshen up the squad a little and bring in the likes of Izzy, Edmundson, Shackleton for the last 2 league , to try and have them on form for those matches or do we stick with our current 1st team and go for broke?

    Think we us this season its been a case of "form is temporary, class is permanent" in many respect I think we have been a form team.

    Surprised Edmundson hasn't been given some game time from the bench..lad knows where the back of the net is..Shackleton should have been played a lot more..not sure what izzy has to do to get a run.

    Think MB needs to look at the youth. can't do any worse than what's showed up the last two games.

    Leave Pablo and Kiko. anyone is fair game starting with the striker position.

    we are walking dead as we are now. A good run but they faded and choked at the end.

    Aston Villa should win the play offs and I can't see United getting past the qualifier for Wembley and probably losing to Derby the way things are. What a Fcuk up of a season. Should have been champions. Why the blind spot in January, madness!

    We flew too high and close to the sun and our wings caught fire. The descent has been gut wrenching but hopefully MB can work his magic in the last two weeks of the season to regroup for the playoffs and stop us being the Icarus of the EFL.

    Yeah we blew it this season..speaking to some of my Leeds fan mates this morning and they all said the same..January TW has cost us the league and promotion..and we also all agreed we would bottle the play-offs.

    Nevermind..there's always next season........

    If if you look at the EFL stats - 12 players have scored at least 15 league goals and 6 over 20 - oh how we could have done with some of that

    Anyone can win the play offs! If I was Bielsa this weekend - I would play a couple of reserves and get one of them to stamp on Grealish's toe ( accident of course ). Nobody gets nothing for being fair in life!

    Of course you can see where this is heading can't you? either we lose to Fat Frank's Derby County in the semi and he has the last laugh over Spygate or we end up playing Villa in the final and have to re-live the 1996 League Cup Final......

    Joking aside I don't want to face Leeds either, as rubbish as you think you've been you still have enough to beat us handsomely and thats assuming we even get to the play offs, for the record I don't think we will, infact I hope we don't, we need another year to rebuild and strengthen, that might or might not include Lampard, he's done ok for a rookie but is he long term, don't think so personally

    I am the most pessimistic of Leeds supporters because i have been supporting them since the late 60's. That said i believe we have a chance in the playoffs. Why?
    The major reason for our downfall is that the lads choked. Couldnt handle the pressure, couldnt take the chances. Thats why we lost. 2X. In playoffs opponents are also under extreme stress and importantly will have to try and win. That means they will have to come out and attack, leave gaps. Biggest ptoblem for us is that Bielsa has to motivate his rather tired team. Language is an issue here. Also i think Roofe has to play up front. Go back to the time when we were winning. Chin up guys we are in the playoffs. MOT.

    Your in a similar position to us Rev this season, where a poor/disappointing January window meant you and us losing some ground when the season really got to its important stage. Who knows eh, a better window might even have clinched automatic by now!.
    And seeing as we've both been up there going for the top 2 all season, the Play offs would be the worst thing to happen now right now wouldnt it.
