Goodnight!

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Thanks for joining us on the live blog tonight. 

It was a six-goal thriller, but it wasn't enough to keep Leeds' fading play off hopes alive. A Nelson Oliveira brace followed a well-taken Steven Naismith goal, and, despite goals from Kyle Bartley, Chris Wood and Pablo Hernandez, Leeds had left themselves with too much to do. 

We'll be back - for the last time - next Sunday, when Leeds go to Wigan. Until then, enjoy the rest of your weekend. 

KYLE BARTLEY: This season has been a pleasure

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Kyle Bartley
PA

I think the lads in the dressing room, me included, have to take some resposibility. There's no excuses. We go out there and we've fallen below the standards we've set ourselves at times. 

My loan finishes next season and I'm a Swansea player until I'm told differently. I haven't had any contact. 

It's been fantastic - the fans, the manager - and an absolute joy and a pleasure. But I can't say too much - I haven't had any contact from Leeds, so as far as I'm aware and concerned, I'll be going back to Swansea. 

I always believed, and my main belief was the manager. I said at the start of the season that he was the best manager in the division - and my opinion on that has never differed, and never will. 

I spoke to the manager through the week and said it's been a privilege to captain such a great club. I feel I've grown as a player and a person - I've helped the young players out, offered a shoulder, and it's been an honour. Everything's here and everything's set: it's on the owners to make sure they step up. We've fallen short and it's for us to take: now the season's finished, it's for them to step up and get the club back where it belongs. 

ALAN IRVINE: We should have taken more chances

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Steven Naismith is an intelligent footballer - he's doing his coaching badges. He's selfless, an intelligent lad and he does his job for the team. I'd like to continue working with him if I was the manager. 

The fans were great - they had a great first 45 minutes like I had, and a disappointing 45 minutes after, even though we created chances that we should have taken. 

Where do Leeds go from here?

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

You start preparing now. Leeds can't leave it late like they did last season - they have an opportunity to sort contracts out now. It's about building blocks, and Leeds can start putting them in place today. 

Noel's reaction to Garry Monk's interview

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

We've not had a season to bring the players and fans together. Then we got this one, of so many highs. So many young players have come through. Monk's protected his players. He's got the right players in with the right character and attitude. 

I think some of the more experienced players haven't show up at times, actually, for all Monk has said this squad isn't ready. Vieira and Phillips have driven this team forward at times when Hernandez, for instance, has gone missing.  

GARRY MONK: We've connected everything

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Garry Monk
PA

Like all the players and staff, it's that feeling today of disappointment and hurt. You want it for the fans I'm not a selfish guy. I like doing this job to give it to everyone else - to the players, the fans. 

At 3-0, I thought it would be an empty stadium. In other years, it might have been. But there's a connection. We're so grateful. I can't thank them enough. It's really appreciated. It's been a special season, even if we couldn't finish it with a special ending. 

I came here to do exactly what I've done - the objective was to improve the team, connect the club. We've connected everything. We live in a world where we want everything instantly - but good things are built, and they're built over time. That was all that mattered to me. That was the most important part. 

The bonus bit was having the opportunity to fight for promotion early. 

GARRY MONK: This hurts

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Garry Monk
PA

They never lie down and die - that's our mentality. As a manager, you want your mentality to come through - and we've gelled it together. This last hurdle - obviously, it's real disappointment. It hurts, and the real dagger in the heart is that Fulham drew, as well. We could have taken it to the last game. 

The majority of these players are not ready. That's not a criticism - but we'll handle it and deal with it. 

I have my ideas and a clear way of what we need, and the club will have theirs. It's for us to sit down when the club is ready, and I have to respect the club. I'll have my ideas - I'm very clear with how I work and what's needed to go forward. It's their choice and I'm very much focusing on today. The plan has always been to finish as strong as possible. 

GARRY MONK: This squad were not ready

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Garry Monk
PA

I'm disappointed with this period, with the last seven or eight games, and I think today's probably typified that. What's been clear from it is there have been so many positives - this team have given so much and given this club so much to be proud of - but this situation, the play offs, has probably come too soon. 

It's not a criticism - I just think it's clear in this period that we're not quite ready yet. The point of this period is to build those foundations and give them an even better platform going forward. 

I love these players. I think they're great. I've worked with them and they've given me everything. I wasn't thinking the best thoughts in the world at 3-0 down, but I said to them, "It's easy to react at 3-0 down and give your best - but you'll face this situation again and the plan is to do that from the start." 

Maybe just this last hurdle, coming so soon - the objective was never to get to the Premier League this season, but the foundations we've put in place will set them up for sure. 

Where do Leeds go now?

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Jansson has said before that he was thinking of quitting football totally. It was Leeds who changed his mind. I'd like to think he knows he's loved here and that he loves Leeds, too. 

I think Roofe has come on leaps and bounds this season. It's hard not to feel gloomy this season, because Leeds have come so close, but if you get that gloominess out of your system, you realise there have been some really key moments. 

Will Jansson stay?

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

I think, sometimes, you have to be disciplined with yourself. Jansson's had too many bookings that just weren't necessary. 

But if you are going to build a squad, you keep hold of your better players. Jansson is a loose cannon but you don't want to take that out of him, to change him. That makes him as a player: we love that aggression. 

You want players who want to play for this club, and take this club to the next level. 

What about recruitment?

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Newcastle had the parachute payments but they bought the players who they knew would get them promoted. And even with the money they've had - it's not always been easy for them. 

But think about strikers: Sergi Canos, at Brentford. £2 million. What a steal. I'd take him over any Leeds winger, bar Roofe. 

Hernandez is taking penalties against - I'm assuming - his son. The height difference is a bit... big. You would have thought Hernandez would have gone in goal, but maybe he's trying to rack up his goal tally.

Where to Leeds go from here?

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

The Championship doesn't get easier next year. Look at the teams coming down - and the teams already here will know a little more about the division, know what they'll have to do. 

Monk has faced criticism but it's also about what the players do - they have to take responsibility when they go over the white line. 

What happens now?

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Garry Monk will need a full summer and a financial backing to get things sorted. Andrea Radrizzani was here today and hopefully he'll have seen the players Leeds need to keep, the men in this squad. 

How did O'Kane do?

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

O'Kane brought what you'd expect from him: that little bit of extra nous. He was calm on the ball, and the desire to go back to his own goal line at times to clear - that was impressive. 

The bottom line is the fans are very proud of this team, and they should be - they should really appreciate what Garry Monk has done. It hurts right now, but the pride is there, too. 

How does it feel?

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Berardi puts his body on the line and rarely puts a foot wrong. But the bottom line is that Leeds will now look back on a season where there are a few games they could have given more in. Burton - they let that one drift by. Wolves... 

Norwich are a very good side, so to get a point back is so impressive. But the regrets remain. 

Who stood out for Leeds?

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

Leeds are dangerous from set-pieces - but they've shown character again. It could have been four or five were it not for Rob Green keeping his side in. He's made some real world-class saves today despite what's been at stake. His mental strength is incredible. 

Hernandez has that added bit of quality to change games with one moment of brilliance, and he did that today. He got on the ball, drove past players, tried to make things happen. The long-range goal was a sucker punch but he helped respond. You can't allow a player of Naismith's quality that kind of time and space. 

How did Leeds improve?

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

The scoreline gave Garry Monk something to work with at half time - and I'd still back Chris Wood to increase his goal tally against Wigan. Leeds went for it in the way everyone's been crying out for ages - they were 'at it' with their intensity and desire to close down. 

If Leeds played every game with the drive they show when they go behind... It just wasn't quite enough, for all it was a magnificent comeback.

Monk a fine example

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Adam Pope

BBC West Yorkshire Sport

You get so much of the whole, "Why would you come to Leeds? Why would you manage Leeds?" It's because managers think they can do it. Monk - he's come the closest by a long way, and has conducted himself so well all the way through. 

He's been so humble, and puts the players first always. He'll be drinking this in now. The players are trying to look happy but we know they'll be hurting inside. 

Not the end of the world

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Katherine Hannah

BBC West Yorkshire Sport

Brighton didn't go up at the first attempt - they reviewed and rebuilt. Leeds have fallen but they can have a long-term project, too. 

Garry Monk is so humble - he's allowing all his players to walk ahead of him in the lap of honour. He has been left in no uncertain terms that he's wanted by these Leeds fans - listen to their singing - and you would like to think he'll be happy with the plan going forward, and will want to stay. 

Where do Leeds go now?

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Adam Pope

BBC West Yorkshire Sport

Leeds have put the foundations down - but they'll have to keep the core of this squad together. This is the concern, now, with the season effectively over - there are a lot of ifs, buts and maybes. And the biggest one is Garry Monk. 

So close, but so far...

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Adam Pope

BBC West Yorkshire Sport

You didn't expect that, at all - for Leeds to be battered into a 3-0 beating like that... The reaction was impressive but just fell short. 

In some ways, it sums up Leeds' season - the never-say-die attitude was there, and the atmosphere inside the ground is still good, but that flat feeling was obvious. They so nearly rekindled it - a win here would have put the pressure on Sheffield Wednesday this weekend. 

'I feel sorry for Leeds'

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Noel Whelan

Ex-Leeds United striker

What the Leeds players must be feeling, now - they'll know it will only come down to a couple of points. It's about performances, and Leeds haven't maintained that level of quality. I feel sorry for them, but we've said a few times this season that Leeds have not shown up for the first 45 minutes. 

BreakingFULL TIME: LEEDS UNITED 3-3 NORWICH CITY

The referee blows the whistle - and blows the candles out on Leeds United's promotion hopes. A draw here and a draw for Fulham means Leeds' play off hopes are really over. Goal difference will kill them, but one win in seven was damaging enough, anyway. 

Stay with us for all the reaction - we'll be here until six. 

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Hernandez takes Leeds into the area and searches for the heads - but his cross has flown wide and it'll be a Norwich goal kick. 

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Hernandez leads Leeds' march inside the Norwich penalty area but the offside flag is up on Chris Wood. Bartley had risen to plant a header towards goal, but it ricocheted off Wood to fly wide. Ruddy in no rush to take this. 

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Green pumps the ball into the box and Wood rises, but it goes dead for a goal kick. Is that it? The hourglass is dwindling.

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Kyle Bartley punches the ground in disappointment as he struggles to meet Pedraza's bouncing, fizzing ball. 

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Norwich sub: Murphy off for Timm Close. 

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Vieira's pass to Hernandez is overhit - but Leeds know who they want on the ball. 

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Murphy takes the ball on the outside before Pedraza makes a challenge. Phillips unleashes Pedraza as Doukara lays off for Vieira on the edge of the area. Norwich clear.

Six minutes of added time...

Noel Whelan

Could that be the difference, that lack of discipline?

BreakingRED CARD: STEVEN NAISMITH

Leeds 3-3 Norwich

Murphy powers down the flank but Vieira wins the tackle - before Naismith leaves the Leeds teen horizontal with a horror tackle. He was so, so high - it was really ugly and absolutely warranted an instant red.
