Good Morning. It's Wednesday 15th May, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...


Toffee's fans praying for Leeds play-off exit

With the play-offs in full flow, twitter has been abuzz with activity, mainly from fans of the teams that are being represented; but now Everton supporters are joining in, with a very different agenda. The Merseyside outfit must have thought all their Christmas's came at once when they were able to snatch Jack Harrison away from Elland Road without so much as a loan fee. The 27yo winger has made 35 appearances for them this season and has played a major part in helping Sean Dyche's side stay clear of the drop zone.

Should Leeds fail to win the play-off's, Harrison, and the rest of deserters from last Summer will be able to extend their loans and continue to run down their contracts. Unsurprisingly, Everton are not keen to splash out £30m for a player, especially if they can exploit Leeds for free.





Who's ready for penalties

Should tomorrows game end in stalemate, just like it did at Carrow Road on Sunday, fans can look forward to extra time, and penalties. Which five penalty takers would you choose?





Leeds return as Bookies favourites for promotion

Leeds Utd are once again the bookies favourites to win the Championship play-offs, and return to the promised land, according to leading bookmakers Bet365. The Whites and Southampton have been taking it in turns as the punters choice for the final promotion slot, but for now at least, Leeds top the bill. This may surprise many as the south Coast outfit have taken all six points from the Whites this season with a five to two aggregate. There's still little to choose between the two sides. Leeds are 11/8, whilst the Saints are 7/5

It's hard to call. Like you said earlier, we don't know who'll be on the pitch.

Expect Farke to have made 5 subs if it goes 120 minutes, If Piroe starts, you wouldn't expect him to go the distance.

If Joffy is on the bench, he takes a good penalty.

So, we don't seem to have any players left to pay with the 'parachute' money, so wtf does it go ?
