Leeds Utd v Middlesbrough Matchday Thread

Another tough Away fixture, one that we really need to win to get the ball rolling again, poor performance against the budgies but hopefully Boro will feel the backlash Come Onnnnnnnnn Leeeeeeeeeeeds, do a Newport
with Boro wanting to put that Cup result behind them and show their fans what they can do they'll be well up for this.

Venue..Riverside Stadium...Date..9th Feb...Kick Off 13:00hrs

Team News
Leeds United (from Phil Hay) Having listened back, this - I think - is what Bielsa was saying about his team for Boro:

Definite starters: Casilla, Ayling, Jansson, Cooper, Alioski, Roofe, Harrison and Bamford.

Then, due to injury doubts: Forshaw or Phillips, Hernandez or Clarke, Klich or Shackleton.
Sounds good, Hopefully Izzy Brown, Jack Clark and Tyler Roberts on the bench dare i hope for Pablo as well

Middlesbrough
Manager Tony Pulis is expected to ring the changes after the loss to Newport. According to The Northern Echo there are two ‘almost certain’ starters. Ryan Shotton and John Obi Mikel will play from the off reportedly, likely replacing Paddy McNair and Adam Clayton.
Clayton was involved in an altercation between players and fans at the full time whistle at Rodney Parade on Tuesday. Muhamed Besic and Rudy Gestede were also involved, and will also be expected to miss out.
Another player likely to come back into the fold is George Saville.

Match Facts
Middlesbrough have only lost one of their last five Championship games against Leeds (W2 D2), keeping a clean sheet in four of these meetings.
Leeds have lost both of their last two league trips to the Riverside (both 0-3), their worst losing run away at Middlesbrough in the league since they lost five in a row between September 1976 and August 1980.
Only Bolton Wanderers (13) have conceded more Championship goals in 2019 than Leeds United (10).

This fixture last season was won 3-0 by Middlesbrough, with Patrick Bamford - now playing for Leeds - scoring a hat-trick for Tony Pulis' side.
Each of Britt Assombalonga's last four Championship goals have been as a substitute - he has scored more substitute goals than any other Championship player this season (five goals).
Leeds striker Patrick Bamford has found the net with both of his shots on target in the Championship this season.


Bamford has stated he thinks he owes the club a few goals so this game would be a good chance for him to make good on that , shame Pablo could be ruled out but i like to think the Lads will manage
Marcello has picked his Team, Let's just get behind them I'm hoping Cassilla can get a clean sheet and Bamford and Roofey fire us into a 0-2 Win

Over to You..................................Predictions etc...............................

Amazing point is that.

Such a big moment. Arguably our hardest game of the season left now out the way
----------------------------------------------------------------------
That's what I'm thinking

We've now scored at least one goal against every single team in the league.

Feels more like 3 points. This team doesn't know when it is beaten.

Just back from the game. Poor disjointed first half playing into the sun in difficult conditions. More like ourselves in the second, bossed the game deserved at least a point. Pablo made the difference.

Unlike some, I like Forshaw, but Phillips looked quality today.

It’s a great point. Supporting stoke now.

On to Swansea now without
Berardi / Dallas / Douglas / Forshaw

And likely without
Klich / Clarke

And a Pablo with his groin.

Well done Villa, second blunts goal should have been disallowed on two counts!!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Hope we get a result for you. That's some distance for an away game.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Cheers!

Not a great performance, but a point is a good result.

Not on tv lorimer. I don’t know why it has been moved. But the end of the game carries into the no live football period between 2.45 & 5.15 on a Saturday.

Doesn’t make sense what’s going on but that’s why it can’t be shown on telly
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Police request.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
They heard JLA was going
----------------------------------------------------------------------



Plenty of police there, saw 2 or 3 incidents after the game. Handbags really!
