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."

    • I remember sitting in a pub in the Algarve that had a load of different games in TV for that 8-1 game. Was with my dad and brother, next to a bunch of united fans (were playing Wigan who were just above us going into that final weekend). Drunkenly said to one of them that I'll get a round of shots in for every goal they put past Wigan, and one of their group chimed in that he'd do the same every time we scored.   Safe to say I got the better deal
    • I think you may be right. I seem to remember moaning about the lack of goals we scored that season. 
    • That City game was a freak game rather than a brilliant performance.  It was common knowledge that Ericsson was going to be sacked after the game so I don't think their players were fully motivated, City went down to 10 men and a few of their players threw the towel in after that. We scored a few great goals in that game but it felt a bit like a friendly game towards the end of the match.  I think that result has become more famous over the years because of how big City have become, before they had the money they were no bigger than us as a club and it felt like we used to beat them every season. 
    • Funnily enough enough as far as I remember that 8-1 was the only game that entire season when we scored more than 2 goals. I may be wrong but it's what I remember, didn't bother checking haha. 
    • I went for Brentford.  I think the games I'd like to see are the last game at Ayresome Park, Boro 4-1 vs United and Man City 8-1. The last 2 would be a great reminder to the recent Boro teams you are allowed to win by more than a goal and score more than 3 on occasions.
