Bristol City v Leeds United Match Day 35

Recommended Posts

Ah. Dirty Leeds.

4 days ago, their fine jar was added to by £5k after The FA gave them and Bolton a bollocking after players from both sides starting a mass water fight mid game. Their current kitty stands at £205k.

 

In the last few days, an Aberdeen fan has been given a written warning about his conduct after he was photographed flicking the bird at Rangers manager. Too harsh perhaps? 

But then a week ago, a Leeds supporter was allegedly videoed using racist language at their game with QPR. This video is apparently circulating on social media but either way, I wouldn't be watching it.

Whilst I wholeheartedly agree with any disgusting racist asshole being banned/arrested/disembowelled, should calling the ref a wanchor be enough now to get you a warning and if you get caught again a ban? I'm sorry but if you want to lump me in with the racists because I shouted that the Ref needs to go to Specsavers, I think I'd be appealing that decision.

 

On to today.

The Leeds fans comments on their social media is cautious. There are few that think this is a pushover. Most would want a win but I think would be happy with a draw. I think I would be the same. 

Their form has been massively inconsistent so this absolutely stinks of another 1-1 draw. 

Piss Pot Ayling will likely play so expect he'll get some stick/applause depending which side of the ground spots him first.

Bamford and Hernandez from Leeds have to be the ones to watch. Hernandez scored in the first minute during their game v West Brom. Super quick, we need Webby and Kalas to be on form when dealing with these two. Especially Hernandez when he makes a run from the MF. Please hurry up Korey.

 

COYRs!

Septic Peg - Not à racist .

The Chinese ? A great bunch of lads.

Dirty Leeds need to be put back in their box . Like a pair of football boots you forgot to clean , mud sticks and their reputation remains.

Masters of the pragmatic, the oh so un- British custom , of winning at all costs ,under Revie ,showcased  the club on the world stage and will for ever be a source of disgust and reluctant admiration for all they achieved amongst those who witnessed the team of that era.

Onto today and it looks like they could be on the cusp of returning to the big time under Bielsa Bob, have they made a Faustien pact ? 

Our reputation is also on the line , for so long always the bridesmaid, can we , finally, push on and shake off the galant losers title ? 

A win would be excellent for our run in . A draw, not a disaster but a loss could see a return to type as we have many big clubs left to play . Clubs who believe that it is their right to be in the top flight . 

We need the to show the world that we are ready to bloody the nose of these dinosaurs. We are the here and now and we are writing a new story .

COYR.

A barometer of our progress both overall in LJ’s time and this season. 

Think we might sneak a high scoring game. 3-2.

Read that Max and Semenyo will be starting. Would be bold decisions. Well maybe not Max but Semenyo would be. Wonder of it would be to play next to Fam or rest Fam, if true?

Switching it up to a 442 at this stage of the season could be good. We're 30+ games in and have been playing the 4141/4231 for most of those. Other teams know how we play. Mixing that up now, gaining a small amount of unpredictability, could work in our favour in the run in. Mix it up, maybe surprise one or two teams.

I’m not totally sure that that’s legal ? 

Ungentlemanly conduct I think ? 

As for 442 , brave or stupid ?

We will see . 

I think we are in for a high scoring match , hopefully we’re on the right side of it .

Worried and excited at the same time .

I'd be nervous if we go like for like as they do have a bit more quality than us. Overall I'm not sure what Lees formation will be but I'm confident it will be a exciting game. One thing for sure is we must score first. Leeds record of scoring first and losing this season is 0% I believe.

Really hope we can get something today; even a point against what is a top team this season would be a statement of intent, and would lift us for the remainder of the season.

That said; as long as the performance is good, I’ll be happy - as much as I hate to say it; looks likely Leeds are going up this year, and no shame losing to them if we give it a proper go.

COYR!

Will he be wasted playing wide though? Got all these wingers and we play strikers out wide!

He played on the wing for Newport

Good Afternoon all!   So here we go another exciting home game against a top team, surely it is a must win for us, a draw would not be fatal, but if we are to stay in contention of a top six place, it must be all three points. I wonder who LJ will play in goal and if Semenyo will start, we will see, anyway hopefully a good game and we come out the victors at the end. COYR's Just seen the team and he is starting with Max in goal.

You know that for sure, do you..? 

You also watch them in training everyday to assume that it’s wrong anyway..?

It’s not a MUST win for us in any way, shape or form. 

Every point counts, of course, but this is probably the least “must win” of all our remaining games..!

The stuff of legends.

 

 

( settle down Silvio , the team selection, not you love ! ) 

I love Semenyo’s squad photo , all the other players kitted out in superstar poses and he looks like ‘ Guess what my mum bought me for Christmas ‘ .

Made up Semenyo starting, just hope that is alongside Fammy and not out wide. Disappointed to see BW selected at RB unless Hunt & Pisano have knocks.

BW needs to be on it ! 

If Semenyo is alongside Diedhiou, the selection of Wright makes a little more sense to me. If not, can't understand Hunt on the bench unless he isn't fit.

It's an opinion and one on the limited times I have seen him play I agree with, especially his cameo last Saturday where he looked dangerous throughout.

And here's my opinion the midfield looks lightweight to me and why haven't we still found a reliable right back?

I don't watch training either but I have watched 15 months of mainly poor performance by Paterson and just for clarity Paterson has been fine for the past month and about time.

I am intrigued by the team selection and I hope that my fears about midfield and the right back position are wrong, because I always want us to win.

I bow to your superior knowledge, but still think we need to win against the teams at the top of the table to give us a better chance of making the playoffs and this will also improve the confidence. A win against Ipswich, which is our game in hand will give us a buffer against the teams closing in on us.

Anything but a win against Ipswich is going to be very hard to accept.

 The pressure is more in the lads there than here.

We are underdogs today but overdogs v the Tractor boys .

Look at the league table and our remaining fixtures. 

If we HAVE to lose 1 game more this season, I’d pick today’s. 

Lose today and win Tuesday, worst case (bar goal difference swing) we will be 6th, level on games, with 10 to play. Many of which are more “6 pointers” or “easier” than today. 

Obviously a win today would be massive though! 🤞
