Well, it’s all down to the next two or three games.

Leeds United took one point from the last four matches and now must try to gain promotion the hard way, going through the playoffs. First up for Leeds is Frank Lampard’s Derby County, the same team that instigated the whole “Spygate” investigation and the faux outrage that followed.

Derby are also a team that Leeds totally dominated in the regular season, winning away at Derby by four goals to one and about as dominant a 2-0 win as you’d ever see in January at Elland Road.

This match should have the added pressure of the playoffs and promotion, and you’d like to think that the squad shoud be up for this game, more than they appeared up for the final match of the season at Ipswich Town.

This season has been amazing for Leeds fans, the way that the team and city has embraced Marcelo Bielsa and his entire philosophy of life. Win or lose, this has been a remarkable season. It’d be a whole lot better with a win.
