A six pointer?

March 22, 2010


I am really looking forward to tonight’s game against Millwall as we will be there in person.  The Yorkshire Evening Post says that “Grayson will give his players licence to “express themselves” on a crucial evening at Elland Road”

Six pointers are traditionally thought of as for those that are battling it out at the other end of the table.  However, in terms of the race for automatic promotion this game looks like a six pointe just the same.  Leeds are four points clear of third with a game in hand (the game against Millwall tonight).  A win tonight and they are seven points clear, lose and Millwall themselves will be a mere three points behind.  Heres hoping that the players manage to express themselves in a positive way and I will happily settle for a repeat of the last time I saw these two teams meet live when Leeds won 4-2..

    Well after that performance I am not at all convinced that we can get automatic promotion. The first half performance was abysmal and the second half not hugely better. Unless the team bucks its ideas up pretty soon it will be the playoffs for us and given our record in the playoffs and the lack of confidence on show tonight I suspect we may be in for another season in League 1

    Watched it on TV last night and have to agree that Leeds looked second best in just about every department. Obviously they missed Beckford up front, but their defence was pretty woeful. Millwall showed more energy, enthusiasm and will to win and it would have not been an injustice if they had scored another goal or two.

    Hate to say it, because a team with the support that Leeds have, do not deserve to be in league one, but I do agree they could well miss out on promotion once again.

    Having said that, it would not surprise me if they beat my Canaries on saturday, if Beckford is fit to play.

    Lots of goals and 3-2 either way is my prediction.

    Well that prediction put the kiss of death on the match!

    A very scrappy bad-tempered affair, which the Canaries just managed to sneak at the end with a goal totally out of keeping with the rest of the game.

    It was tough on Leeds, there was not a lot to choose between the sides. Having said that, it made up for the last minute goal our goalkeeper gifted Leeds to allow them all thee points in the away fixture earlier in the season.. when again, a draw would have been the fairer result.

    Still at least you got a win! Good to hear that Leeds may have played better – they would struggle to play worse than Monday night. Not at all optimistic about the prospects for the rest of the season
