    Bielsa gives them a goal, and John Terry still manages to be a clam.

    Do we have a tactics/formations thread? I wasn't sure what to do with this but thought it interesting.

    Sheffield United’s overlapping centre backs coming to a Premier League ground near you

    An interesting idea. It could work for us say with Vertonghen pushing forward (he has played wing back for Belgium) and Dier covering. It's always good to have alternatives for getting width.

    How Marcelo Bielsa gave Leeds fans something to be proud of again

    It wasn't a game that mattered - Leeds would have had to have something like a 14 goal goal difference turnaround in the final pair of fixtures

    I thought the rule/etiquette was play on unless its a head injury

    Theres a couple of things with this one, firstly Villa put the ball out earlier in the game when a Leeds player went down. Not unreasonable to expect the gesture returned.

    Secondly the Leeds player feigned like he was going to kick it out, then played the attacking ball - really clam move on his part. Had he carried on playing "normally" Villa wouldnt have stepped down and relaxed. He mugged them off.

    The first was a foolish assumption for Villa to make. The rule/convention is to play on and only stop for head injuries.

    The second is why Villa have a point, at least at a moral level. It just confirmed why Leeds are everyone's second favourite team,

    Villa stopped when they thought the Leeds player was passing it out, not before.

    Dont get me wrong, they were pointing and carping the whole time about it, but they didnt stop playing until the Leeds player acted like a Leeds player

    Leeds striker Patrick Bamford has been banned for two matches by the Football Association after being found guilty of "successful deception of a match official" in the draw with Aston Villa.

    Bamford went down as though he had been hit in the face by Anwar El Ghazi after Leeds' controversial opening goal.

    Replays showed Villa's Dutch winger had made no contact with the head of the 25-year-old.

    El Ghazi was sent off but had the red card rescinded on Tuesday.

    Bamford will miss Sunday's Championship trip to Ipswich and the first leg of Leeds' play-off semi-final tie.

    Leeds said in a statement that although Bamford did not deny the charge they had requested a hearing to "contest the penalty imposed on the player".

    They added: "The club felt that given the circumstances surrounding the incident, including the extraordinary act of sportsmanship which saw our head coach Marcelo Bielsa demand our team to allow Aston Villa to score an uncontested equaliser, we could have a sensible discussion around the sanction.

    "We acknowledge that the FA panel did not feel that to be reasonable and the club therefore joins Patrick in accepting the two-match ban."

    The melee, in which the Bamford incident occurred, was sparked after Mateusz Klich scored for Leeds with Villa players appealing for the ball to be played out after Jonathan Kodjia had gone down injured in the centre circle.

    After clashes between the players and an exchange between the two benches, Leeds boss Bielsa ordered his team to allow Villa to walk in an equaliser from kick-off, which was scored by winger Albert Adomah. Sunday's game finished 1-1.

    On Tuesday both clubs were charged with failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion in the aftermath of Leeds' goal. They have until 18:00 BST on Friday to respond to their respective charges.

    Leeds' failure to win saw Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United promoted to the Premier League and they will now feature alongside Villa in the play-offs.

    Looks like Pulis could steal Fat Frank's playoff spot in the final game.

    The atmosphere at Derby is awesome. Our lot should be tubing in, players and fans. This is how you get a job done on the final day of the season.

    Lots of changes were on the cards at one point. Sheffield United grabbing top spot, West Brom pipping Leeds for third, Boro knicking the last playoff spot. In the end it was as they were.

    Of the playoff teams only Derby won, so they must be positive about prospects against Leeds, who have not only missed direct promotion but managed to lose to the bottom club in their final game.

    Grealish has been really poor against West Brom so far. Play off leg one, doesn't look Premier League material at all. Could prove me wrong second half...

    Keeps getting caught on the ball and has a propensity to dive.. Meanwhile Jay Rodriguez has completely lost his pace. Real shame.
