Leeds United Message Board
Hull – 4-5-1
Chester, Rosenior, Hobbs, Al-Muhamadi;
Koren, Brady, Cairney, Quinn, Aluko;
Expect Hull to try to control midfield with threats from Koren, Cairney, Simpson, and Rosenior.
Leeds – 4-4-2
Byram, Pearce, Tate, Drury;
Green, Norris, Diouf, Thomas;
Expect Leeds to break the Hull attack with Pearce, Tate, Drury, and Norris; Diouf to direct midfield; Byram, Green, and Thomas (or Hall?) to respond on the counter; McCormack to run the channels, with Somma holding the line… as defenders bounce off him! Additionally, a judicious use of subs will be important.
The Tigers are another high-flying side that Leeds has to face before the January transfer window opens and the team can be strengthened. But Hull poses no greater threat than the other League leading clubs it has already beaten. Undoubtedly, after the Forest game, Neil Warnock’s focus will be on keeping a clean sheet at the KC Stadium and his tactics will be designed to frustrate Hull. Nevertheless, he will have an eye on getting three important points from this game.
Hull 1-2 Leeds
The Tigers have a better squad all round and in every department. Even Colin admits that.
LU are lacking in several positions, and the defense has not gelled as you always hope it will when you bring in new players. This seems a perrenial problem for us as it was the same with Larry. It's always a gamble but we just have to be patient that one player may make all the difference.
Colin has tried to sign Clint Hill and Sean Derry (both virtually over the hill in my opinion) without success, but no doubt he will find someone who may or may not prove to be the catalyst.
I am sure he would like a player like Tarabt as that was his ace in the hole at QPR in the championship.
Time will tell, and let's hope we have a good second half to the season.
So did we Easy.so did we!!!
Sent Warnock an up to date FA Coaching Manual, courtesy of Lotto.Let us all hope he reads it before Bolton "trot off" with all of the points on Tuesday. MOT hopefully with some common sense and basic football skills applied other than "hoof and hope".
