Leeds return to Thorp Arch

Good Morning. It's Monday 25th May, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...


Leeds players return to training at Thorp Arch

Over ten weeks since their last competitive game, Leeds Utd have been given the green light to return to training at Thorp Arch. Whilst we await to hear on a date for the season to recommence, and whether home or neutral venues will be designated, it is surely good news for Leeds fans.

I'm sure we all read yesterday that Hull City have two unnamed casualties of the deadly virus on their books. Although the duo have no ill effects, both will have to self isolate for seven days! Is seven days enough?

What are the chances that one of more players from the Championship catch the virus between now and the restart of the season? Now that training has recommenced, the entire squad will not be able to train for a week! What kind of advantage would that give to the opposition?





Be careful what you wish for

Although it's fantastic news that Leeds have resumed training, and a return to action is only weeks away; there is the little matter of 27 points to be played for! A visit to the Cardiff City Stadium has rarely been kind to us, and should Fulham sneak a win at Elland Road the next game, our advantage will be more or less lost. Alarmingly, since Leeds returned to the Championship in the 09/10 season, they have averaged 9.2 points from the final nine games, during which they have dropped two places. Even last season under Bielsa, we only averaged 10 points!

10/11 season - 11 points and drop 2 places
11/12 season - 7 points and drop 4 places
12/13 season - 9 points and drop 3 places
13/14 season - 10 points and drop 2 places
14/15 season - 8 points and drop 2 places
15/16 season - 9 points and drop 1 place
16/17 season - 9 points and drop 3 places
17/18 season - 10 points and level
18/19 season - 10 points and drop 1 place

Welcome to the MOT forum Westgate!

My biggest fear is how the lads react to playing BCD. No fans there to generate the normal electric atmosphere which can give players that extra bit of pace or that spring in their step. If they adapt to it then we should go up without too many hiccups.

Our form over the last 10 games is so so bad.

Hopefully though the break will have done us good, empty stadiums so no pressure from the stands.

Its a bit like the start of the season again and we seem to do well then.

Fingers and toes crossed.

Would much rather win or even lose promotion on the pitch then be given promotion in the courts or ppg.
Well we do with a full stadium or vociferous travelling support and no fear of disease. No precedence for BCD football. It'll be a leveller
