10 above Villa, dont sell the importance short Leon :)
Amended mate, I was looking at the on-running table which hadn't been changed even though the full-time result was up. I thought Villa were a bit close for comfort :o

Best result for us as 2 strong sides only get a point each. MUST win tomorrow to widen the gap, it would be a wonderful day if Boro, Derby and Sheff U drop points

Must keep taking advantage of other teams dropping points. They are handing promotion to us on a plate . Villa will be up in top 2 so to go there with our 10pt advantage intact will be a great achievement and even a defeat wouldn't be such a massive blow.Still have to get 6 pts off QPR and Bolton beforehand tho.

Potentially huge news for us and other promotion rivals and a massive blow for one of our other rivals.

Rumours that Jack Grealish is out for up to 2 months.

He went off injured near the end vs WBA.

Not confirmed but the rumours are picking up traction and that is unlikely to be a player Villa can replace (seems the gist on Villa social media talk).

Personally he is overrated by Villa fans imo, but thats pretty common for an academy product.

Apart from.Jack Clarke who is basically the English Ronaldo :)

Still a crucial player for Villa and at his best a top player at this level.

I wouldn't wish injuries on any player but it's reassuring other clubs around us are suffering the same plight to key players

Still just a rumour.

Edit He is a serious doubt for Stoke, but no talk of a serious injury.

2-1 WBA.

3 points behind us now, Blades are 6.

2 decent sides, still think WBA are an average team with very good players.

Just hope they dont become a good team that can defend.

Impressive Norwich. Never give up chasing and show much more composure and attacking no-how. Really going for the winner last 10 mins after being down 2-1. Finished 2-2 so another good result for Leeds. Top o the league !

Villa game bit of a free hit now?

Be great to get the win, a point would do, a defeat and we still have a 3 point gap to 3rd minimum.

Already played 6 of the top 10 away, we are one of them so only 3 left, Boro, Forest and Birmingham.

Brilliant weekend Ges :-D six of the top eight teams drop points with only the Baggies & Leeds gaining a victory, lets hope we can continue this run & put daylight between us & 3rd place

Tbh fella's, I'm a bit worried about Sunday, mainly because Smith knew how to get into us with Brentford and now with better players and us with a weakened back 4 from then, I do fear the worst, nice to have that points cushion though, if it does go belly up.

It is a worry especially against our makeshift defence.

That villa front 3 has everything we lack, pace, power and height.

Jansson can battle with Abraham for crosses but who battles with 6ft1 Bolasie or 6ft2 Kodjia?

And such pace in transition to far superior to any of our back line apart from maybe Shacks.

We could be in trouble, last time we played a front line that good we got stuffed.

Halme is 6'5....he should really start against an attacking team shouldn't he. Philips sweeper.
BPF - Hossannah - Halme - Diaz - Struijk - Oduor - Gotts - Stevens - McCalmont - Temenuzhkov - Shackleton

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"
