Not a clue, taking it one game at a time. Too many variables after such a long break, no crowd, subconscious fear of too much contact, the expectation etc etc. I think we'll have enough but, after this long a wait, I'm keeping my powder dry!

Have they stuck to the same order as the pre-break draw?

Think they are waiting until venues are decided.

Thanks Ian

I just noticed that the forum index page shows the game details for the Cardiff match, so I assumed there was a fixture list out there somewhere. Though I can't find one.

Very difficult to predict how the side will come back from the break. After having months to think about their position, I can see it impacting the team psyche in one of two ways:

1. They crumble under the weight of expectations and flame out Derby style the minute something goes wrong.
2. They've learned and grown from last season's experience and finish the string emphatically, looking virtually unbeatable.

I can't really see a middle ground and those first two or three matches are going to set the tone for the conclusion. Before the break I was very confident we were getting option two, now I'm less confident. Just hope the kingpins like Pablo, Klich, Cooper and Kalvin learned their lesson.

The one thing I like about the break is that it will have given the team time to adapt to Meslier with Kiko out.

Fingers crossed.

Not seen a single moan from Leeds during all of this, seem to be prepared as a club and players. Apparently they have all come back and put in personal bests in terms of their tines round the running track, so they are all fit. Just building up thay physicality and match fitness now.

Does anyone thing there not being a nervy Elland Road crowd might help them in some way? Sometimes the nail biting tension doesn't help the team is some situations.

No details yet.

Lots of sites just publishing the remaining matchdays in the order they were. There could be some changes once venues and broacast dates/times have been decided.

It could certainly work that way. The nervousness around the stadium (and in everyone's homes) after Derby equalised was certainly matched on the pitch. For me it all started to go wrong last season when we had that match when they had put all the pieces of paper under the seats so it spelt out believe. For me it had the opposite effect and gave us all doubts. No gimmicks this time around just a professional job done to the end.
