Leeds Utd v West Brom Matchday Thread

Happy New Year to One and All and welcome to what will become my 1st Matchday Thread of 2020

After the heart stopping antics of the Brum game i have no bloody idea what's going to happen with this one but Slaven Bilic has promised "show Leeds United everything we have" That'll be nice

Venue... The Hawthorns...Date...1st Jan 2020...Kick Off...1715hrs

Team News
Leeds United
Leeds' top scorer Patrick Bamford is expected to shake off a dead leg and return in place of on-loan Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah. Hopefully Shak and Roberts will be fit to play.

Midfielders Pablo Hernandez (hamstring) and Adam Forshaw (hip) are out.

West Brom
West Brom defender Bartley could start after he recovered from injury to return to the bench against Middlesbrough.

But winger Grady Diangana is doubtful ,Joining him on the sidelines will be full-back Nathan Ferguson.

Links............…Sky Sports (BUTTON) or…….……..
Video....... Hesgoal, usagoals Beinsports ? getting harder to find
(there's also streams on F/book and Twitter I believe )

Match facts
West Bromwich Albion have won four of their last five home league games against Leeds United.
Leeds have won their last two league matches against West Brom by an aggregate score of 5-0 - both at Elland Road. But they lost 4-1 on their last visit to the The Hawthorns, in November 2018.
Albion have lost six of their last eight league matches on New Year's Day. Last season, they lost 2-1 at Blackburn.
This is the first time Leeds will play their first league match of a new decade away from home since 1970 when, under Don Revie, they hammered Chelsea 5-2 at Stamford Bridge.
Albion have lost their first league match of a calendar year in 10 of the last 14 years, although they won the last time they were at The Hawthorns in 2017, a 3-1 win over Hull City.
Patrick Bamford has scored two goals in two Championship games against West Brom for Leeds - both in the 4-0 win at Elland Road in March 2019.

So here we go, top of the table clash and a chance to put a few points between 1st and 2nd place, although i think the chasing pack would prefer a draw
Can't see that happening tbh..............1-2 Bamford & White

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

Come Onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn Leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeds!!!

Can we go Live Please Admins

Good luck to him and as Bielsa has stated; if he goes, he would like a replacement. And I hope it will be someone a little more experienced

Yes. Agree, good luck to him. He obviously wasn't an
MB player. He was an Orta pick. Now Orta has to make
dead certain MB wants whoever Orta puts in front of him.

Great effort from the lads psychologically a massive point keeping the chasing pack at bay.
Also I've got a feeling we may repeat our 2010 promotion season and have a bit of a cup run.

That would be insanely good Macca.

We more than deserved that result. Much better than they are.

Eddie - never been convinced he’s what we need. Today proved it.

Bamford - did more to upset W Brom in the first minute he was on than Eddie did first half.

Another point towards our goal.

Get in!

Thought you guys bossed possession but didn't do an awful lot with it whereas we produced more chances. Needless to say your (allegedly racist) keeper was one of the best players on the pitch.

All in all a draw was about the right result.

I think it will be a travesty if we don't both go up this season. A lot may depend on this transfer window though.

You guys need a striker for sure and we need to keep hold of Diangana!
