INJUSTICE

I know many including myself have criticised players, etc. for this end of season debacle, but I agree with many posts here that the players and coaching team deserve great credit for the incredible energy they put in this season, this is why I think it is an absolute disgrace that a team finishing 3rd with 25 wins and 83 points has to be judged on playoffs matches, and now we have a situation whereby Derby(6th) or the Villains(5th) could go up with just 76 or 74 points respectively, it is very discouraging for players and everyone linked with this club or any club in a similar case. Where's the justice here ? This is wrong, and needs changing big time.

Would have been nice if they had a 4th place playoff whereby we played West Brom ! Feel sorry for West Brom too.

So don’t blame sky.

Clubs need money.

Rugby league was dying, whilst not perfect, play offs have saved it.

Both are great for fans and club make abit extra money

Win win

It's another example of how Sky manipulate the sport to earn additional revenue
——————————

If your going to spout nonsense at least get your facts rights

They started well before sky got involved 🙈

So I got those timelines wrong .... well done.

My point remains, they're a money spinning exercise, for whoever benefits and as you said to extend the season for other teams and fans.

Football at the end of the day is entertainment, adding in the play offs adds to it. You knew the drill before the season started. There is no injustice. At all.

Look at it this way, Leicester lost in the play offs in a cruel fashion and it spurred our team on to win the league the following season.

Lets be honest, last night wasn't cruel, it was incompetent.

True, but the point I was making was that good can come from such defeats, even if it may not feel like that now.

We've been trying to convince ourselves of that viewpoint for 15 years

You're all missing the point a bit.

There should be playoffs BUT laid out differently like the IPL for example.

One off games

Match 1: 3 v 4 Winner direct to final

Match 2: 5 v 6

Match 3: Loser Match 1 v Winner Match 2

Final: Winner Match 1 v Winner Match 3

AZA, I think that's a brillant idea. Tell the Fff EFL about this, they are too thick !

I agree. There should be a greater benefit for finishing higher. I don’t like the play-offs at all. Maybe if the third placed team is enough points ahead of fourth, say ten, they should get autos. Or sixth plays at fifth for the right to play at fourth, and the winner of that plays at the third-placed team rather than Wembley. We have benefitted this time, but it isn’t right in my opinion.
