So many sendings off in the play offs this season. That’s now at least five.

Such a shame. I wanted penalties before the Leeds fans tears.

Spare a thought for all the innocent cars and windows which will be vandalised in Leeds city centre tonight.

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer set of fans.

Yet another Bielsa team runs out of steam. Quelle surprise.

Has there ever been a 5th vs 6th PO final before at this level?

Best case scenario is Derby going up and then watch next season in amazement as Fwank fails to beat their own record low PL points total!

You heard it here first!

That's how I see it too, I need find out if Villa have blown FFP out the water and it will be brushed under the carpet if they go up, I'm having arguments on Twitter with Villa fans, which is a foolish thing to do anyway but they seem to be obsessed with showing how "little" they've spent without acknowledging how high their wage bill probably is or how high the loan fees for their loan signings could be. One even bragged about being the 3rd richest club in England which is ridiculous, since, even if their owners are wealthy, it doesn't bypass FFP.

So FLDC become my preferred choice then as Villa need to get their financial comeuppance and WBA are long gone.

LOL at Leeds again.

Villa go up, struggle, that cnut Terry stabs Dean Smith in the back to become the manager, get relegated anyway, Terry sacked. Then gets the Wycombe job.

Don't know but it doesn't feel right.

I really like the non league play off system where one goes up automtaically and finishing 2nd and 3rd is a real advantage. One game less 4 plays 7, 5 plays 6 and the winners plays 2 and 3. At each stage the higher rank team plays at home.

This would have helped Leeds so I can see why they don't do it.

Completely agree here, I think the playoff system needs a total revamp so finishing 3rd and to a lesser extent 4th is actually a positive

One thing I completely disagree which is what some people say is just send the top three up. There’d be a good 5/6 teams at a minimum with nothing to play for from January onwards...

But anyway thank you Derby for making the evening!

Quite interesting on Twitter how many Leeds fans seem to think thry have to announce they will still go watch them next season. What a strange thing for a fan to think they have to confirm.

Italian play off system:

If the team finishing 3rd is 10 points or more ahead of 4th place then they are automatically promoted and there are no play offs. If there are less than 10 points between 3rd and 4th then the play offs go ahead including the teams who finish within 14 points of 3rd place (down to 8th place in the league) meaning anywhere between 2 and 6 teams take part

If 6 teams take part then 3rd and 4th get a bye while 5th plays at home to 8th and 6th plays at home to 7th in a one off game. If it is a draw at the end then the team who finished higher in the league progresses through.

the winners of 6th vs 7th plays 3rd and the winner of 5th Vs 8th plays 4th in a 2 legged match. Away goals do not count, if it's a draw after both legs then the team who finished higher in the league progresses

final 2 teams play each other over 2 legs with the team finishing higher in the league getting the home leg 2nd and a draw means the team finishing higher in the league wins. If the teams draw and they are on the same points in the league then they go to extra time and penalties

I like it.

I've often thought when 3 teams are well clear they should all go up.
But no play off final? Can't see that ever being adopted. There's too much money at stake. Even though this would clearly be a fairer system.

May all be sour grapes/made up bollocks from Leeds fans but I saw on twitter that Derby's owner managed to sell their ground for £40M to one of his other companies which magically meant they had loads of cash to splash around. The idea of FFP is great, just seems really badly implemented.
