Goodbye!

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Thanks for joining us on the live text blog tonight, and throughout this season. 

Another season draws to a close and just missing out on the play offs will be tough to take for Leeds - but it's been a season to remember. 

90 days until the new season kicks off. Until then...

How will Leeds fare next season?

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Adam Pope

I think it can appear daunting when other teams come down with parachute payments, but Huddersfield, for example, have got into the play offs without them. You can't keep pulling rabbits out of hats, but you can do it. 

What transfer activity would you like?

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

We need to try and keep hold of Jansson and Bartley - they've been really strong together, with a good partnership. Leeds need another creative midfielder - I'd say another four or five players should do it for them. 

I think Leeds need at least two or three players of real, established quality. You can take a gamble on a few players but not a squad full. 

Why has Chris Wood done so well?

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Chris Wood sounds like he's happy here, so that's positive - but he's scored such an array of goals, and that's positive. 

He's scored goals that have been instinctive finishes from a striker full of confidence, at the top of his game. 

CHRIS WOOD: Elland Road has been a great place to be

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Personally, I'm very happy with hitting that mark - it's a mark I don't think anyone thought I would hit. It's not down to me progressing - it's down to the whole team progressing. We've come on leaps and bounds, transformed into a team that's play off-worthy, without a doubt. It's been a great season all together as a team, and any other year would have had us in the play offs. 

It's been a great place to be for the last eight months and we're hoping to build on that next season. The fanbase has shown us what we can be if they give us support. 

We set out to achieve this mark and hoped to push on further - 75 points, on average, would have had you in the play offs. I said when I signed that this is a huge club, and I wanted to take them up. I was hopeful that I could have done that this year but the foundations are in place. I'm hopeful that's what we'll do. 

What happens now?

Just to clarify, we don't all go into cold storage until the new season kicks off. We still have to work - apart from Noel, who goes into hibernation. 

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

You pay your agent to find you another club. While you're contracted, you play for that club. Whoever's been advising him - it's terrible advice. My agent was a top agent - he dealt with Jamie Carragher, Emile Heskey - and he'd never have told me to do that. If it was his agent, it was a big mistake. 

More on Charlie Taylor

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Adam Pope

BBC West Yorkshire Sport

We know he doesn't have the right of reply right now, but we've dealt with Charlie Taylor several times and he's been a dream. He is a Premier League player in my experience, but the consensus of the press pack is that there's no way you can sugar coat this one. It's such a sad goodbye. 

Noel's reaction to the Taylor news

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

I'm very surprised and disappointed about the Taylor news - who is advising him? The agents have a say, but that doesn't matter. It comes down to the player, and he'll have to live with that. I can't get my head around it. 

He had an opportunity today to play his last game for the fans, and for the fans to show their appreciation to him. He's blown all of that. 

GARRY MONK on his contract talks

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Garry Monk
PA

I had initial talks yesterday with Mr. Radrizzani - more general talks, really, about the season. I have a clear idea of what's needed to make the next step, which is the promotion season - having experienced Leeds United, I know what's needed. 

Until I have those discussions, the most important bit is that they understand what I need. They'll have their ideas on top of that and it's to see if those ideas are aligned in that sense. 

GARRY MONK:

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Garry Monk

Chris Wood has brought more aggression, more quality - and that's what we wanted from all the players. They've come very far in a short space of time, and that's the key for this club. It needs to be built upon. They've been fantastic all season long.

Cooper got injured in training - twisted his ankle - so wasn't ready for the game. But I'm hugely disappointed with Charlie. I think he's been terribly-advised all season and has refused to play the game. As a manager, you can't have that. It's a shame, as he's a great lad, a fantastic lad - hopefully, he'll learn from the mistake he's made. But I think, from the outside, he's been badly-advised all season. We've tried to guide him from the inside but it's been very difficult for us as management to get a full Charlie Taylor. The injury was genuine but better advice all season and we would have seen a better Charlie Taylor. It should never have happened but young players, advised in that way, can make the wrong decisions. 

GARRY MONK:

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Garry Monk
PA

To be fair, we started the game really well - the goal was the first attack into our half. We started well. The first half was a bit of a nothing sort of game - a bit of probing from both teams, but nothing much. I thought we might have pushed on from the goal but we actually spoke in pre-season about a target of 75 points. I wanted 77 in the end, but what we set in terms of targets - Elland Road being a fortress, clean sheets - they've pretty much achieved all of them, and we went over them in the hotel this morning. It just shows how hard this team have worked. 

I try and give them the right information at half-time - sometimes, there are choice words, but they're an honest bunch. It's disappointing not to make the play offs but the mentality has been excellent. It's been a really good step forward for the club. 

Will Charlie Taylor stay?

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

I think that's the end of the road for Charlie Taylor - and it's disappointing if he has been fit and refused to play today. It's a sad way to end at a club that have given him so much. We'll see if he has enough to stay in the Premier League - he's out of contract, so you can't bargain. I think you're looking at about £4 million for him. 

Who would Noel keep?

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

I think Sacko's decision-making has let him down at times. He needs a bit more nous about him - sometimes, you're not sure why he's trying certain things. 

Matt Grimes - it just didn't happen for him here. Monk knows Grimes from his days at Swansea, but what does he offer that Bridcutt and Vieira don't? He's not a number ten - so what is his role? What is he bringing? I'm sure he is a nice bloke, but the point remains. 

Who would Katherine keep?

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Katherine Hannah

I think Hernandez has little moment of genius that makes you think he's worth keeping. You don't want to be in a situation where you're thinking, this isn't a Hernandez pitch - you want him to be reliable. 

Barrow hasn't set the world on fire when we have seen him. I think Sacko needs polishing - he could be something. The components are there. 

What about Hernandez?

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

He's not particularly convinced me he's worth more time in a Leeds shirt - but sometimes, one season at a club is not enough. That's all I can say from personal experience - it can take time to adapt to a new style. 

I need my number ten to dictate games and I don't  think he does enough for me. You can't carry a luxury player and he has been a passenger in some games. He's brought moment of genius at times but you want to be able to expect players to turn up every week. 

Who will stay?

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Kyle Bartley is a funny one. If Swansea stay in the Premier League, they probably won't need him - but if they come down, they might want him. 

I think, if offered, he'd want another crack at Leeds. He likes it here, and he'll want to be in a successful side. He'll want assurances Leeds will challenge next season and he's honest and committed. He's the kind of player you want at this club, and he carries himself in the right way. 

What do Leeds do now?

Wigan 1-1 Leeds

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

We know Garry Monk is the man - and Leeds need to tie him down as soon as possible. To be finishing seventh, with the squad he's had, is a really good achievement, and players coming into the club want to see him tied down. 

I fancy Fulham to go on and win the play offs - I've always said they'd be hard to stop if they get in there.
