Looking at both lineups we should win the midfield battle. However we are probably going to be very blunt in the final third.

Was about to say the same. This game absolutely has to be played through the middle. I’m slightly more confident with that line up now so going for a 2-1 loss

Expected that line up so not too bad. Think we’ll see the narrow system for the rest of the season tbh, and VLP to be used as impact sub (along with Britt).

 

Really hope we come out all guns blazing. I’m sick of saying this before each game, because we never do. Inevitably we’ll start off awful, Leeds will score.

We’ll then either keep conceding and get thrashed like Villa, or we’ll plod away and get a last ditch equaliser.

Play like we did at WBA and we will fine. As Besic was the weak link I’m actually pretty pleased with that team.

Once again 5 at the back ! we should be really going for this one at home not a lone striker FFS!!!

 

well considering how well it went with two strikers against Newport...

 

I have no problems with one forward, the problem is what we have and how we set up behind......

Haha good point! What happened last Tuesday? :-) Our Lord and master Pulis says it's all forgotten about .

If we can get Saville, Howson and Wing within 10 yards of Hugill I have no problem with one up front. Bring on Britt and VLP when Cooper and Janssen tire.

We will absolutely not play through the middle, we never do. Well launch the ball up to hugill, hope it sticks long enough to get the midfielders into the game in the final 3rd, rinse repeat.

But wba were beating us rather comfortably until Pulis changed the lineup and tactics.

well it worked pretty well in the first half, thought we where unlycky it was 1-1 after the first half to be honest. Then we started second half real crappy and went down, then we changed and got back in the game, but mostly because WBA let us I think....

Dreading today... At least it's a 2 show day to distract my attention though!

 

I've a very bad feeling about this one... Hope I'm wrong.

 

There's no room for negativity, not today, not against Leeds and especially not from some namby pamby, arty farty type  :fist: :fist: :fist:

 

Well I'm rocking a dog collar in this one. Will pray for divine intervention. ;)

    • He scored 19 goals in his last season for us, 14 in the League despite only playing three quarters of the games. The man might have missed the odd game but he was absolutely on fire his last season with us when he played. In the end, maybe we did need his wages off the books. But I'm not sure that's the whole story being told. We also clearly needed to shift Downing off the wage books, moreso even as the productivity was not even close to being worth what we were paying and we weren't in the Premier League when it happened. But it doesn't make what he alleges we did any better. If Viduka was handled similarly then that would also be wrong; it's more to do with the willingness to break agreements made over a handshake or even just general treatment of players fans hold a strong connection with than whether we were right to try and keep them on or not. It'd be good if the chairman never got us into these daft financial arrangements to begin with and maybe we wouldn't be making decisions like that. I think people gave him the benefit of the doubt around what eventually happened in 2009 because we were not long since a club operating in European football and tried to get back to that whilst also cutting back. The risks we've taken that have hampered us most in recent years however have taken place whilst we were already in the Championship and showing very little threat of getting out of it at the right end so I'm not sure why anyone would continue to give him the benefit of the doubt other than they hold some kind of grudge against Downing. I know you're specifically talking about Viduka btw NB4 but I can definitely see how, if we were willing to treat Schwarzer and Downing so poorly, it could be applied to just about anyone including Viduka.
    • Btw I loved viduka at times for us, if he was consistently as good as he could be he would have been one of the best strikers in the league because he had everything. I just don't think we did anything wrong with his contract situation.
    • We aren't under any obligation to start contract talks with anyone at a particular time. Viduka was one of the best paid players in our team at a point where we were about to go on a huge cost cutting exercise as a result over over paying for players for years, of which he was certianly one of them. Add to that that he was very poor or injured for us for long periods up until the last 6 months of his contract, I don't think we did anything wrong there.
    • I think my favourite part about that post Uwe is that I knew it was coming. 😄
    • Now Slayer are sadly no more, maybe we could sign Kerry King as a defender. He might not be very mobile at his age, but it'd be a brave opposition striker who tried to get past him...
