Leeds United Message Board
Peltier, Kisnorbo, Pearce, White;
Byram, Diouf, Austin, Tonge;
Peltier, Kisnorbo, Pearce, Pugh;
Byram, Diouf, Tonge, Hall;
Peltier, Kisnorbo, Pearce, White;
Byram, Brown, Diouf, Tonge;
(New Player), Becchio.
Any combination along these lines!
‘Just guessing that Kissa will replace Lees in defence. Austin probably needs a rest. Peltier and Tonge are both carrying injuries so Neil might use either Norris or Green; playing Byram at RB. Brown has played okay but looks like a red card candidate. Diouf, not a natural striker, should be allowed to control midfield – assuming Neil doesn’t use more long-ball tactics!
We need pace and a natural goal-scorer in attack. Ryan Hall appears to fit the bill and, maybe with Neil intending to go “gung-ho”, the lad might get a start if talk of Leeds loaning a “game changing” new player comes to nowt – though, even if we get a new striker, I’d like to see Hall play.
Varney running the channels with Becchio doing his usual hold-up play may give us more than only using Becchio as a lone striker. Neither are predatory goal-scorers but with the right supply, from wide players getting in behind defences, they could net important goals. Hall, Byram, and White are all capable of pace and providing attacking threats from wide positions. With this potential, it is disheartening to watch Leeds playing “route one” football.
Hall, Doyley, Pudil, Cassetti,
Hoban, Chalobah, Hogg, Abdi,
I don’t know much about Watford so this line-up is just a guess. One thing for sure is that Zola will tell his team to score as early as possible, exploit the negativity that envelops Leeds at present, and set our fans against our players and manager – it’s a good game plan… Neil will be aware of this and set Leeds up to deal with the threat.
Leeds 2-1 Watford – though, with a new striker, it would be great to see a 5-0 result and Leeds edging forward on goal difference… Dreams, dreams, dreams!
Well, Phil Brown will be in charge of Pools by the weekend and a rocket up the table's on the cards. I reckon James Arthur from Saltburn up here should take The X Factor.
And, I've been on the phone to Janet Street Porter a mate of mine. She said getting pissed off with Loose Women and wants to take a football club over in Yorkshire somewhere. Delia Smith's giving her advice etc of how do do it---so watch out.
H---Where's Tom and Easy fuscked off to.
Austin needed a rest; now he has an unwanted one and Neil is reaping the consequences. I can't understand what Neil was trying to do. Is using players out of position in an unfamiliar system what Neil means by going "gung-ho"? The Watford game was a shamles; like the club at present!
Well neither team are scoring goals for fun.
I think we will have lost some confidence, and I hope colin will give Hall a run, solely because he will add something different to the team. the lad obviously has pace (which we are missing), and if he isn't match fit then he can be hooked when he runs out of steam.
More in hope than certainty I will go with 1-0

Leeds 1-6 Watford - WTF. Bates must love it!
I’ve just heard Eddie Gray say: “The fans know the club is waiting for investment”, with the implication that when Bates sells the club it will be up to the new owners to invest, but Bates owns the club now so why isn’t he investing? The answer is that it is ‘business as usual’ – Bates hasn’t invested in Leeds since his dubious acquisition.
