    Right guys, lets get some predictions in. Here's how I think the play offs will go:

    Championship

    Aston Villa v WBA - Winner - Aston Villa
    Derby v Leeds - Winner - Leeds

    Aston Villa v Leeds - Winner - Aston Villa

    League 1

    Portsmouth v Sunderland - Winner - Sunderland
    Charlton v Doncaster - Winner - Charlton

    Sunderland v Charlton - Winner - Charlton

    League 2

    Newport County v Mansfield Town - Winner - Newport County
    Tranmere Rovers v Forest Green Rovers - Winner - Forest Green Rovers

    Newport County v Forest Green Rovers - Winner - Newport County

    So t's Villa, Charlton and Newport County for promotion imo. Anyone disagree?

    I really want to see Bielsa in the prem, but I can't help but feel they'll bottle it.

    Looking forward to this been a Leeds fan. We have had a terrible 2 months, should hopefully have that out of our system.

    Had Derby spanked both times this season. 3-0 to Leeds first leg. MOT :)

    Get in, great turnaround. Not sure why we played Whelan for so long in the first place considering how West Brom play. The scrote Gayle getting himself sent off was the icing on the cake.

    No foul there, that should have been a pen to Derby.

    Derby have been hard done by there.

    Rather see Leeds in the PL again for a laugh.

    It wasnt a pen in my view. The Derby player put his foot infront of Harrison's leg, which meant he couldnt clear the ball properly. Harrison was goal side, he should be allowed to clear the ball without being impeded.

    Not a penalty in my opinion either, the lad has come from his blind side and the contact is next to nothing.... Leeds lad doesn't even know he's there and is basically trying to clear the ball.

    Can't see how that's a foul personally, didn't look a foul in real time and the replay confirms it for me.

    Not a penalty for me. I initially thought it was until I saw a slow motion reply.

    Having seen it again, I think it's a decent call from the linesman. Wonder if Lampard will have a moan :p

    Never a penalty, just sky trying to make a story.

    Two poor sides in Pompey and Sunderland, almost as poor as the range of Darren "to be fair" Bent's vocabulary.
