Wednesday evening was a massive disappointment for Leeds United fans as Derby County took the unexpected victory in the second leg of the Championship Play-Off Semi-Final At Elland Road.
Despite still dominating the game and creating the better chances, we failed to make the most of those efforts despite Stuart Dallas helping himself to a brace on the night and Frank Lampard’s side took a 4-3 aggregate win to book their own place in the Final.
With the reaction of the players largely mimicking the disappointment, frustration and hurt felt by the fans, although Pontus Jansson remained on the bench as manager Marcelo Bielsa kept faith with Gaetano Berardi, having finished the customary warm-down session, he took a moment out for himself and for many fans it was a case of a picture painting a thousand words again, and plenty felt it might be the last time we see the passionate Swede in our colours.

Big decision he has to make now, hope him, Phillips and Clarke make the right one!

He might be gone. Don’t blame him. If he’s fit, he has to play. Berra has always been and will be a wild card. And he came back to true form today

That's the last time he'll be in a Leeds shirt. He's got 1 big move left in his career.
