Dijksteel out for 4-weeks - Knee operation needed
Assombalonga 50/50 for Leeds - Ankle injury
Paddy McNair - Doubtful for Leeds

That’s probably Saville in for McNair. I feel like Assombalonga will probably play

I wouldn't call it a free hit, given how much we need the points, but I think I'd sooner Britt missed Saturday than against Charlton.

I thought this was Saville's third match out for Leeds, oh well, woohoo, he's back in the fold, that guy who does things on a football pitch.

I'd rather bring Clayton into the midfield than Saville though.

Though given Britt's injury he may well bring Saville in anyway to avoid having to play O'Neill up top.

If Britt is out then it would make a lot of sense to play 5-4-1 with Tavernier, Clayton, Saville and Wing in midfield behind Fletcher in strike; akin to how Newcastle set up. We could have Tavernier and Wing as the two creative, attack-minded midfielder of the CMs closest to the flanks, and give them the license to get forward when we’re in possession. We’re missing Randolph and loads of key defenders so us playing that formation would at least help protect our patched up team. If there is any risk to Assombalonga then I would much rather we save him for the games after Leeds.

Don't hate me, Sir Blanco... It is just friendly banter 😛 

I am not evil like CT 😛 

On a serious note, I DO hope that Ireland will qualify. 😉

Genuine question here:

If Ireland fail to qualify, but Northern Ireland qualify .. Would Irish people then cheer for NI?

Bamford didn't want to leave, according to Woody.

Bamford's departure

"A lot of things have been said about Patrick, he had two/three years left on his contract. If he wanted to stay all he had to say was I didn't want to go.

"We weren't shoehorning him out of the club. He's got a contract, he still had years left.

"You can't push people out. Players have got to want to go, Patrick wanted to go.

"We've got a good deal, we want players who want to be at this football club and we'll go from there."

    • Yes it does. Seems like the Belgian league pulled the trigger too soon because they have been summoned into a meeting with uefa after uefa said they would ban clubs for next season if the leagues were cancelled. 
    • Hi everyone and I hope all are doing as well as can be under the circumstances? Still no sign of this nightmare abating for a while yet. Plenty of examples of people still not understanding the social distancing rules or maybe defying the advise or instruction. Plenty of conspiracy theories going around and certainly G5 towers being damaged because of it. Where will it end I wonder as I would not be surprised to see further examples of social unrest down the line. Are any of you feeling the brunt of the reality of COVID 19 or know of friends, family that are going through it, if so hopes of a pull through are sent to you? So much time on our hands now, use it well and take good care of yourselves. 
    • Wonder who Sky sports would employ to slate boro if Keith Andrews goes...🤔
    • As is typical of the FAI Robbie Keane signed a 4 year deal at the time that McCarthy signed a 2 year deal so he still has a contract. However it is understood that Stephen Kenny does not want him in the senior set up. Kenny wishes to work with Keith Andrews as his assistant and Damien Duff as coach.
    • Hello everyone, Hope you are all well, I see ROI have bought forward  theyu21 boss appointment as boss of senior teams to replace Mick McCarthy. Does anyone know if that means Robbie Keane also left? Cant find anything other than FA thanking Mick and his staff for they work.
