Old Man Andrews I know he is beign deliberately edgy but he does have a valid point in there.


Hmmm. Free travel doesn't offset the cost. If they charged £20, we'd still offer free travel. So everyone is paying £19 more than is reasonable.


You make a compelling case Hound :) . Lets be honest no Championship club has a right to charge that kind of money, its bloody robbery.
West Ham did it to us a few years back in the Championship winning season...wernt even good tickets....Cant wait for them to come down, never been to the Olympic stadium.

Anyway back to the footy.
Play with 3 centrebacks tomorrow anyone reckons? If so whos fit and who isnt? Do we think this maybe a repeat of the home game earlier this season?


Not without Miazga, unless McIntyre is both fit and comfortable on the right of Centreback position.

Moore simply isn't good there, Morrison is obviously the central anchor and you're certainly never putting Blackett anywhere but the left side.

Seems a ridiculous punt to go with Osho or Burley etc to fill out the three against Leeds.

Yiadom did well there in a few select appearances there last season, including Norwich away

It wouldn't be my choice, and is further restricted because Gunter is injured and hence wouldn't be able to fill the RWB spot. But if he wanted to go 5 at the back, that is a possible solution. Not sure he would after a 3-0 away win mind

Absolutely not a solution to my mind.


Also, do we really need 3 CBs to deal with Bamford?

Much rather have two DMs to screen the defence from Klich, Hernandez, Ayling and the rest of their fairly powerful attack behind Bamford.

My tactics would definitely involve trying to get an early corner, long throw or wide free kick to have someone in the box rough up Kiko a bit.

And take plenty of long range pot shots at him with some nice through balls or over the tops.

Make him work and hit an error through number of opportunities.

There is no justification for a Championship side to charge £39, and even less when we do the decent thing and charge their fans half that ! Of course the words decent and Leeds are highly unlikely to appear in the same sentence in any context...
Nice to hear they have a ‘retro’ stadium. Wagonwheels available in the concourses and NF newspaper sellers outside the ground ?
Think the result could go any way, we are quite capable of going there and winning, Pele being fit is a big boost for us. They desperately need the win to stop the rot but will the pressure be too much ? They aren’t a club that handle pressure well.

Nice tight formation today,with a bit of a threat up front.
Usual suspects in the back four with Rafael;then Rino,Pele and Swift in midfield and Meite,Puskas and Ejaria up front.Tough on Olise.

He is missing the point. We are away to the biggest club in the league, there's always going to be a cup final feel to the game. The players need to treat it like one if they are going to get anything from the game.

NO. I am not missing the point at all. It IS NOT like a cup final. There is NOT a cup final feel to the game at all.

As almost every poster on HNA is now saying, you are VERY MUCH embarrassing yourself. But hey, I'm sure we are all on edge
awaiting your witty response :D

It was boring 2 months ago. You have to wonder at the mental state of a poster who is continually posting this type of stuff.

The pressure's all on Leeds. They're not in great form but will be expected to win. We have nothing to lose. Keep it tight for the first 20 minutes and they will get twitchy.

Just another game. We have much more important games coming up.

Good selection today...we should be setting up with Pele & Rino at tough away grounds. Think Olise is being managed well here - he’ll get plenty of game time for the rest of the season but this is probably a good game for him to sit out
