Leeds lost again at Brentford. Sheff Utd won at Hull. Because of goal difference Sheff Utd can all but seal 2nd place by beating shitty bottom team Ipswich at home.
Leeds play Villa next, who have won their last 10 games.

Unless there's another twist it looks like the Play-offs are gonna be

Leeds v Derby / Mboro / Bristol City
WBA v Villa

Bielsa orders his team to let Villa score after Leeds scored a goal with a player down for Villa. Scene at Elland Road.

I don't like Leeds but Villa should've just played to the ref's whistle. Don't stop until you hear it or the ball goes out. However since they were being big cry babies about did Bielsa made a smart move by just letting them have the goal instead of potentially letting it hang over his team going into the p/offs. I don't believe he would've done that if 2nd place was still realistically at stake. As for that muppet Bamford what a **** he is. This has many hoping to see a Leeds-Villa final next month.

That was pure madness. IMO all parts were wrong, but the key is it didn't matter for the second place at that point.

They go into the playoffs on awful form, even lost to Ipswich today but largely meaningless match. They face good friends Derby in the playoffs

Leeds will not be playing Premier League next season after losing their play-off with Derby 4-3 on agg.

Will Bielsa stay??

That was an incredible game of football. Spectacular atmosphere, mistakes, red cards, great goals, hardcore emotion, lots at stake.

Devastating for Leeds. Terrible defending, and above all the goalkeeper.... what the **** was he doing? Was he drunk? Lucky he cost them one goal only, could have easily been four.

Super happy for Frankie Lampard! Legend

Bielsa renewed, as officially announced by Leeds United. We know given how volatile Bielsa is that it's not a guarantee that he'll stay even another week, but good news still.
