Lampard speaks

https://www.dcfc.co.uk/news/2019/05/watch-lampards-play-off-media-briefing-in-full
He sounds resigned to me. He knows if we play anywhere near as well as we did at the weekend, there is nothing he can do to get his team to Wembley.

All the Bielsa ringing (U19827)

You say player for player but from my perspective we have the better players and you have the better team

Funny how opinions differ depending on which side of the fence you are

If Derby bring their A game then I fear nobody in this division, it just hasn't happened often enough this season hence why we finished 6th

Just done a quick tally in my head of the 11 v 11 and it came out 7-4 Leeds.

First goal is huge, first goal could be the winning goal tbh

You would be a fool to think this was over and done with. Like Bielsa said after the game, it's an advantage but it's not decisive.

First goal is massive. I hope Leeds get an early one, otherwise it will be a long evening even if Derby don't score. If it's 0-0 around the 60th minute, our players will naturally drop back and Derby will be throwing players forward.

I thought Norwich completely outplayed Leeds at Elland Road. But then we beat Norwich at Carrow Road and were beaten comfortably by Leeds home and away.

All games are different. No doubt Leeds have a big advantage going into tonight, not just the goal lead but psychologically after the way the previous games have gone. But that can all go out of the window if a particular incident goes one way or the other - Derby score and suddenly it all feels different. There are bound to be nerves on both sides. Realistically I give Derby only an outside chance but we certainly have players who on their day can hurt other teams. Much stranger things have happened in football than Derby winning a game at Leeds.

They outplayed us in the second half Vidal, but sucker punched us twice in the first half to give them the opportunity. Still took three deflections to do the job... but they were well worth their win in the end.

It’s a styles thing. Norwich let sides play, we squeeze and press them... you haven’t coped with it... were some signs in the second half on Saturday that you were getting to grips with it.

All still to play for.

First goal is not huge without them counting double, the 2nd on the other hand, game on or game over.

Exactly how i see it best. Bielsa will set them up as usual to bomb forward. But if you’re Ayling or Dallas, are you going to go over-lapping if it’s 0-0 after 75 mins. The pressure will inevitably come if we don’t score.

You will be in for a shock if you think you're already at Wembley

You've beat us three times season and deservedly so but you've faced a well under par Derby 3 times

Were better than that and it all depends which Derby turns up tonight
----------------------------------------------------------------------

We MADE you under par, nothing else.

Bogey.

It appears to be simple really. Juts invite the team to go out and play out of their skins to beat Leeds. One goal early on and it will be all to play for. The team needs o exonerate itself.
