I was waiting for SF to make this but I shall wait no longer!

I think we will win this. Not sure why, just a hunch. Garner to bag a brace and give Liam Cooper nightmares.

I'm away for this one but probably would have gone if not, despite the price of tickets, I do like a good piss-up in Leeds.

Looked a bit jaded in midfield on Tuesday so might bring one of Welsh or Kilkenny in there but think we will probably be unchanged.

Think we might be able to get something from this but that was a good result for them last night.

Does Dallas play wide left? If so he's gonna roast us unless we get someone who can actually defend to help the Belgian Cafu out.

we don't win at home too often and we won't win 2 in a row at home, 1-1

Think this has 0-0 all over it to be honest. Simon's got PNE well organised and we're still not amazingly creative ourselves despite the goals last night. Would be fantastic to get a win to keep this little spell going to push us towards the top half but PNE seem to know how to get results so can see it being a bit of a dour match.

Imagine our team will be the same after 30 mins of last night:

...............................Silvestri...................................

Wootton.........Bellusci.......Cooper..............Taylor

...............................Bridcutt..................................

Byram.....................Cook...........................Dallas

..............................Doukara................................

...............................Wood....................................

On paper, that's a really good Leeds team.

It's weird. For most of the season I've thought our players have underperformed 'cos we genuinely have some really good players...then we were just shite every week and assumed the players weren't as good as we all thought. Then we play well and it's frustrating again.

Put Berardi in for Wootton and it's a decent line-up with the likes of Bamba, Mowatt, Murphy and Antenucci on the bench.

However, we've still played badly more times than well this season so it's hard to know where we're going wrong. Really lacked creativity with Dallas our only spark most of the time and Wood isn't a very good finisher so most chances we get haven't been taken!

Is this pie on the pitch protest actually happenin btw?
Considering I hadn't heard about it, no.

The walkout protest from the Hull game had far more about it before the match and barely anything happened.

Fair enough ha! Just saw something on Twitter a few days ago, presumed it was bullshit but thought I'd check. Shame, would've been hilarious!

Most people at Elland Road aren't on the same page as those on WACCOE/Twitter. Based on the internet you'd think everyone was anti-Cellino but unfortunately most just don't give a shit.

Welsh in for Johnson who failed a late fitness test. Also, Kirkland is ill so we have a 17 year old youth keeper on the bench. Please don't hurt Pickford :(

Murphy in for Adeyemi and not Doukara. Bit surprising but meh.

We're the same really. Although I'm fairly sure Bailey Peacock-Farrell is a local solicitors firm rather than our sub goalkeeper.

Well here's his chance!

Pickford off for handball. Harsh by all accounts. Got to win this now.

In the chest and two covering defenders. Fucking joke this. Only thing I'm wondering is how much it cost Leeds to pay this referee?

1-0. OG. Great stuff from Simon. Self destructing for the lads.

you fucking kidding, every week we have Refs that hate us, if you've seen half the blatant penalties we've been refused (ironically around the same time the FL hate was happening) you'd shake your head

today we must have a Blackpool ref or something

Getting complacent here it seems. One to try get in the bag and move on from.

Still images show nothing and it definitely didn't hit him in the face.

I can't post links but if you look on @WALMOT3 's Twitter page, there's a couple of vine's that suggest it was the arm/shoulder but one angle is from behind the keeper and it looks a clear handball.

There's a slow motion vine on our forum which shows it hit his shoulder. The worst part is, Grayson said the ref was gonna book him but the linesman told him there wasn't sufficient defensive cover, which is a fucking joke. We had two defenders already beyond Pickford when it hit him and the ball clearly wouldn't have beaten them to the goal. It will be overturned anyway, but it ruined what was an entertaining game.

Glad to see common sense prevail and that his red card has been overturned. Disgraceful decision to even send him off in the first place.
