It seems to happen to us a lot. Opposition change manager and said team fight for their lives against us! (or is it just me being Leeds United paranoid)
No all teams up their game 25% against us as it’s Leeds United wether it’s a new manager or not

Tammy Abraham has REJECTED a loan move to Wolves in order to help Aston Villas promotion push.

Fair play to Tammy showing some loyalty.

The cynic would suggest that Wolves wouldn't have offered him a guaranteed starting place whereas Villa will.

Was going to post that earlier Weasel, Abraham would struggle to get into that Wolves team even though they are not scoring anywhere near the amount goals in the prem as they did in the championship

True but imagine Wolves would pony up more cash, top up his weekly wage like Birmingham did for Sam Gallagher who didnt want to go there.

Good to see a player not totally motivated by cash although be nice if he did leave to weaken Villa.

Norwich entertain West Brom today
Derby already losing ground on us this weekend
Sheff UTD host QPR who'll be looking to sneak into playoff contention
Middlesborough go to an in form Birmingham side also in play for the play offs
Forest should have a winnable game against Reading away but it's not a game I'd like after losing a manager
Villa who are often said to be an auto rival and spending a lot of money, are 16 points behind having to win the next 7/8 on the bounce to stay in touch


Could be a very good weekend one way or another

So do we want West Brom and Norwich to draw, or do we want West Brom to win??

Ideal choice is for them both to loose, but that unfortunately ain't gonna happen :(

Not sure what I want, each outcome as its merits.

A Norwich WBA draw would be nice, but I wouldn't mind a Norwich win either. Currently 8 points above the baggies who have lost a key player. :tup:

Nice to get the 3 points and being able to relax watching what happens next.

Some sort of dispute over whether Abraham could play for Wolves if he signed for them which seems to be the real reason. Seems like the FA haven't made a decision either way and until they do he will stay at Villa.

Norwich v WBA draw would be good as both techically would drop 2 points further behind us over this set of results.

Norwich win would put a bigger gap between the top 2 and the chasing pack.

Worst result would be a baggies win for me, so a Norwich win or draw
