Leeds United Message Board
Who would have though a few short weeks ago when we were wondering what was going on at ER after being hammered by Preston and Cardiff, that going into the game against league leaders QPR we had the chance to go 2nd if we won after being on a run of 7 games unbeaten!
QPR have been flying high, but got their wings clipped by Watford last Friday and im sure SG will have looked at how Watford exploited the weakness and will have a plan to hopefully get a similar result.
We go into this game on the back of some impressive perfomances and results, most noteably last week against Burnley, so i feel that we will get something from this game.
Again its splinter time for my behind (why change a winning formula??) so im on the fence, but i dont think we will get beat.
Your opinions please gents.............

What a result and performance. QPR not only got found out today as a team but also got the runaround from a superb Leeds team who are absolutley buzzing. Cant wait to see Warnock on the TV tonight!!
Some of the football Leeds played today was top drawer, and SG got his tactics and selection spot on again.
Big praise to Bradley Johnson who had tarabt in his pocket, and showed that once he is kept quiet QPR run out of ideas. Im not BJ's biggest fan but he was quality today.
Leigh Bromby did well when he came on so the strength in depth that we have also shows we have the ingredients to push for an automatic spot.
And last mention to the fans who made it an incredible atmosphere inside the ground today, was awesome to see everyone with shirts and scarfs above their heads giving it WACCOE.
Thanks boys Merry Xmas.
Like your thinking B4ts, but do you think SG would revert to them sort of mind games??
If he does you go to say he's becoming an outstanding manager if he pulls it off, and i would love it if only to see how pissed off Warnock would be if we win.
I had hoped that Leeds would be the first team to topple QPR. I am not a fan of Neil Warnock. I would have loved to have been there to see him cursing match officials, and anyone within shouting distance. Watford had that pleasure. However, wouldn't it be great if Leeds compounded his misery on Saturday; if only to see his eyebrows disappear completely! QPR will be going all out to restore its status and, by trying too hard, that might just hand us the advantage. After all, we have a goal difference to address! (-:)

Seriously, do we think Leeds has a chance of a result against QPR?
It is a good time to be playing QPR. Not just because of its defeat to Watford and our run of eight games undefeated, but because the owners of QPR have unsettled the side by stating that they will get a better manager when/if in the Premiership!
Now I have every sympathy for Neil Warnock.
Simon is likely to field an unchanged side, as usual, and, presumably, QPR will have plans in place to deal with how it predicts Leeds will play. Additionally, without O'Brien we will be vulnerable at the back.
So far this season we have only really been outclassed by Cardiff and Leicester. Hopefully, Simon will have learnt from those games and use the lessons to organise against QPR.
Our players will be under pressure but they can't afford to let QPR intimidate them. If they can keep their heads, get tight to QPR players, and pass the ball around, then (with Simon making a few judicious tactical substitutions like getting McCormack and Paynter involved) Leeds should get a result.
