Wanted to get there early so I did not get lost and - whilst I admittedly have not quite reached the stadium yet - it appears from where I am right now that I have 90 minutes to kill in a barren wasteland. What is there to do near Elland Road?

There's a pub right opposite the stadium :ph34r:

Mags in the team is a weakness

Can't agree with that. Mags being in the team means we don't have to play Wright at LCB, where he doesn't look entirely comfortable to me. More importantly it means Smith or Brownhill don't have to play RB. A back 4 of Wright, Flint, Mags and Bryan looks stronger than either of the previous 2 games since Bakers suspension.

No one has replied to my earlier question . 

Because they worked together will LJ have an advantage over Heckingbottom ? or will Heckingbottom have the advantage ? 

What do you think ? 

I'm going for LJ . He's the boss . 

We’ve done alright V Barnsley in LJ Vs Hecky fixtures.

Barnsley fans suggest Heckingbottom thrived off LJ's success/ work. 

Copied his style both on and off the pitch. Will be interesting. I feel we've always had the upper hand on Heckingbottoms Barnsley. Heckingbottoms Leeds could be a different story..

I think it is all about the players on both sides rather than coaches.

It may come down to who wants it more and puts in the effort. While the coach can affect that I think it is mostly up to the players themselves imho.

I get that being in & out of the team can’t be easy. There’s only one person to blame for that though..! He’s been unreliable, costly & repetative in his errors. 

Still, clean slate again today & let’s hope he’s learned some lessons. 

Let's hope so indeed.

I feel he's got a lot to do to turn around your opinion of him though.

A run of games - especially in the same position with the same responsibilities - is going to be beneficial to the match fitness, individual performance, and even decision making, of any player.

Harsh to demand an error free game from him because every single player will make them.

Let's give him a break - as you rightly say, a clean slate - and hope for a confident no nonsense performance from Hörður rather than look to highlight the odd error, unless they prove costly.

I would add that if you're a defender booting the ball over the stand occasionally is perfectly acceptable, and I'm sure Hörður has been left in no doubt about that.

But when LJ left them for us it was Hecky who was the mastermind pulling the strings and LJ was crap according to the very same people.

A lot of Barnsley fans actually liked everyone to believe that Heckingbottom was the secret to LJ’s ‘success’ at Barnsley. LJ was the face and Hecky put in all the hard work - hence they were very happy when he took over and were glad to see the back of LJ.

Edit - sorry @JamesBCFC - wrote this just as you must have posted the same thing!

I really hope that Kent's been told that he primarily plays on the left in front of Joe and not to go wandering wherever he likes. He's got to learn that he's part of a team and not take up the  other player's positions.

Very good point, especially opening 20 minutes when shape and structure will be important.

Could it be a 3-5-2?

                 Wright,    Flint,     Mags

Brownhill                                          Bryan

                  Smith,     Pack,      Reid

 

                     Kent 

                               Diedhiou 

That's exactly how I would go

Nowt. Warned folk earlier on another thread. The city centre (2 miles away) is a different kettle of fish.:)
