"They will also be very motivated to try & 'avenge' May as if a regular League game comes close to a playoff semi. Still, can't legislate for stupid."
"Avenge May"Never, cant be done. Whupping us 25 - 0 for the next 100 years wont avenge May.
In terms of the long running Leeds/ Derrby rivalry it was Game, Set, Match and Goodnight Sweetheart.
Cocu could get us promoted, win the Premier league and five european cups and it STILL wont be better than the best football night of my life."
"Certainly the best 2 hours of my Derby supporting life! Their best team for 15 years, top 2 all year, they'd done the 'hard work' at PP....and we stuffed them out of sight! Their faces at the end 'Take your scarves, eff off home' booming around Elland Road!! "
"It was something I don’t think I’ll ever experience again. I hope it can be bettered but I doubt it will. "

They seem to talk about it like they won. But they didn't, and as such beating us in the semi means absolutely f**k all!
That's the thing - our 'revenge' was simply watching Villa beat them as they failed to get lucky twice. If they'd have won the play-off final and gone up it would have hurt knowing that we were miles better than them for 3 1/2 games out of 4 but because they lost it became meaningless as we may also have lost to Villa in the final.
It was their unexpected cup final and you could tell by their reaction how completely unexpected it was for them. As it was they lost their manager and their loan players left and they had nothing to show for it, same as us. They don't even have an £80m piece of property any more....
Despite all their antics, and spending a fortune, they really are going backwards as a club. Lampard, spygate, Rooney, and this supposed rivalry with Leeds, are just desperate attempts for attention and relevance.
Sheffield Wednesday have a massive history and surely as Yorkshire's top derby irrespective of which division the teams are in means they are rivals...I always looked forward to the L/SW derbies
It would be funny if they went down with Huddersfield and Stoke.

Just for fun of course...

There's a thought, I do live close enough and have the time, so could wander past in my Leeds hoodie.
Would they suspect Bielsa of sending a short sighted, overweight, middle aged woman, though...
