Good Morning. It's Wednesday 24th June, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road
Ref blow for Leeds
Leeds have been dealt a blow after it was revealed that the EFL have chosen Cleveland based referee Tony Harrison to referee Leeds crunch match against Fulham on Saturday afternoon. A win for either side will have devastating results on the other as both sides look to return to the Premiership. Harrington took charge in Leeds home loss against Wigan Athletic, was fourth official against Millwall the week before and was the man in black during Leeds’ 3-3 draw with Cardiff City.
Thompson - If Leeds beat Fulham - that’ll be them home and hosed
Former Liverpool Star, now Soccer pundit David Thompson has revealed that he would be 'mortified' if the Whites were not promoted and admitted that Leeds have become his second team!
I’d be mortified if it happened to Leeds again and Bielsa," he told BBC Radio 5 Live's Daily Podcast.
I’d be sick for them because the position they’ve been in all season, I want Leeds to go up. They’ve become my second team. By all accounts, today I read the BBC report and they were very unfortunate. I hope it doesn’t happen to them again. If they win that, that’ll be them home and hosed," "Ten points will be enough for them. Leeds will be okay. I think it might help them, this not playing in front of a crowd at Elland Road for some of the players.
Cardiff are on a fantastic run under Neil Harris since he’s been in there so it is a shock because it’s Leeds and they’ve done so well, been at the top all season, but Cardiff are just outside that play-off position, level on points with Preston, so they look like a team that could maybe push into the play-offs. But for me I think Leeds and West Brom will be the teams to go up.
Worse Case Scenario
In the unlikely event that Leeds do not gain promotion to the Premiership, would it be (in your opinion) time to part ways with Bielsa, even if the Argentine were prepared to give it another shot?
