Not just 8th after promotion but also on one of the lowest budgets in the division. An amazing season.

Yep, it shows what can be done on a shoe string budget - A bit like Burnley in PL.

Villa V Fulham for the last spot for the EPL.

Derby and Middlesbrough out.

I would like Villa to get the 3rd play off spot with Cardiff and Wolves.

Fulham were the best team I saw (admittedly on tv) all year. Villa were junk.

The playoff is on Saturday 26th, not the normal (bank holiday) Monday. Is this due to the WC, and they want the season completed a bit earlier?

It's hardly original, it's just like man city's. Spend cabernet loads of money and buy the championship.
Dont let the facts get in the way ( as usual)

Boro, Villa, Sheff Wed amongst others spent more than Wolves.... how did that go?

Its not what you spend its who you spend it on...... Ross McCormack anyone? John Terry on £100k a week.....

Fulham deserved to go up but the real miracle worker was Warnock at Cardiff, awful style of play but effective ( Cahill would actually fit in well there)

Wolves to finish top 8 next season, Cardiff, Huddersfield and Brighton to go down.

If you think I'm not being correct with my facts then tell us how much wolves spent on players?

Barnsley was just above the relegation zone when they signed him and many Leeds fans couldn't understand why he was signed anyway, so he won't be missed.

His style of play is still being questioned - to see if he ever had one.

So, how does their average crowd go compared to Millwall's then?

It's a lot higher.

How far you've fallen when dirty leeds are comparing their attendances to little old Millwall.

Ipswich, Bolton and Rotherham are gone.
Millwall safe as are the Blues despite the 9 point deduction.

fair play to Leeds for being completely unsporting and
Banford being a cheat.

This is why for 40 years they've been called dirty Leeds.

It shows why VAR is required - Villa should have received a penalty and the send off shouldn't have happened.

The whole game didn't shed Leeds in a good light - I cant see them going up now. Giving the goal back was a shining light and they played better than recent times but not good enough to get them promoted and injuries are starting to have an impact also.

I could be wrong but its not looking good.

Only their manager appeared to have done the right thing. Game was farcical before then. Every tackle (as soft as most were) players rolling around, holding up play, squealing for free kicks. You could almost sniff something like this was going to happen. Villa robbed for me.

The issue is the Leeds player stopped and made it look like he was putting the ball out. Then an outrageous dive from another Leeds player to get someone sent off.

Worst part of Leeds drawing is that Sheff Utd got promoted, can only hope they have a very quick return.
