      Away at a team in the relegation zone.

      What can possibly go wrong.

      Hopefully Diaz is involved - not expecting him to pull up trees after so long out but just hope he comes through it unscathed.

      Hope we've got a new penalty taker lined up as well...  :f_tongueincheek:

      Expect us to get beat tomorrow to be honest, their supporters will be up for it under the lights and we haven't responded well to that sort of intensity this season away from home.

      Hope we see a bit of Diaz though.

      More Trent in midfield please. Play Milner at RB and he can be the penalty taker.

      Are you putting trent in midfield because you feel there is nobody else or because you've come to the conclusion he's absolutely hopeless as a defender but still want him in the team. Or abit of both maybe.

      Be nice to see how it goes. He's got a good shot on him and passing ability.

      I feel that along with at least 2 quality midfielders we need a world class right back as well in the summer. Van dijk .... needs to be a he'll of alot better next season otherwise his days will be numbered.

      I like that front 3 ... hard to see Diaz starting though after so long out.

      I just love Trent so much and he needs to be in the team! We have an AWFUL away record this season and just feel we need a steady person at full back.

      I am sure we beat our neighbours the bluesh*te on a Monday night.

      As for tonight, away at Leeds, anything can happen. One thing for sure Mo should not take a penalty, if one is given, after squandering two in a row !

      I think Diaz may come off the bench for the last 20 minutes of the game, he would certainly give the side a much needed boost. Diaz's presence being sorely missed by players and fans this season.

      I also have a feeling Jota might get off the mark. Desperate to see his trademark header

      I would rather Jota over Mo taking penalties, if any given. But Jota obviously due a goal or two.

      Be surprised if Lucho starts if I’m honest, but off the bench for the last 10/15 mins would be ideal, we’ll need him for the run in so ease him in gently, must win now, in fact every game left is a must win if we’re to grab a CL spot,

      For me you stick with what’s familiar, no round pegs in square holes and go with the strongest x1 available, ……

                                Alisson
                 Trent   Konate   Virgil   Robbo

                     Hendo             Thiago
                                 Gakpo
                   Salah.                    Nunez
                                  Jota

          Bench; Kelleher, Gomez, Kostas, Fabinho, Bobby, Harvey, Carvalho, Diaz, Milner, Liddle Balmer

      “Dirty” Leeds are in a world of sh*t, they are desperate for a win, never easy going to Elland Road and it won’t be this time around either, however, we have definitely improved of late and should go there confident after the drawing with Arse,

      I’d go with the X1 above see how we go, we’ll want total control of the tempo and pace with our pass n move groove, no one can touch us if we can dominate this and outdo their mids,

      Can only see a Reds victory, love us to batter them but equally happy with a scrappy in off the keeper’s arse borefest, we just need 3 points, simples !!

      Probably way off the mark as usual, gone for a 3  1 win for the Reds. Really hope we turn up tonight, finding some form upfront.

      The term "Dirty" Leeds reminds me of the days of Hunter, Charlton, Bremner and Giles, just to name a few, surely they where far dirtier than their setup nowadays !

      Fair enough mate.

      We do have an awful away record and part of that is our defence. I genuinely feel we need to buy a world class ready to go straight in right back this summer.

      Obviously a world class 6 added to that and van dijk getting back to something like his best will be needed as well.

      Trying to be optimistic for tonight. But their crowd will be right up for it as will their team and I just see us coming out ... as per in neutral and second to everything.

      Might be worth trying to get 55 out of Diaz just to see if it gives us a boost.

      VVD, Ali, Mo, Sadio were already very good when we signed. VVD and Ali were even acquired at world class fees.

      How many Robertsons did we sign? Under £10m and became captain of your national team and became close to world class. How many?

      We need to win tonight. But I don’t know how. I’ll just watch. On topic

      Will Trent play the 'inverted' right back. Problem is it splits the 3 left at the back. City deploy Stones in a similar way but he generally stays deep playing just off the back 3.

      Trent plays higher which should allow Hendo to sit in with Fabinho. It's a bit of a compromise position as far as Trent is concerned and as soon as a team exploits the gap their will be howls of protest.

      Might be used more of a home gambit and although Trent will support he will hold his full back position a bit more tonight.

      Hope not as it was a mess against Arsenal and added nothing , it did leave Konate exposed.

      Well he did 'nutmeg' the defender to assist the equaliser. Think the boss saw City and even Arsenal using it and decided Trent could do it. Trent's defending early on in his career wasn't in focus as much as it is now. The only redeeming factor is his support play.

      A decision has to be made sooner or later. Any back 4 that has a weak link is a big problem.

      The nutmeg which happened back in an area where he has been creating for years


      I’m all for getting him on the ball more but last week it exposed the back line

      VVD, Ali, Mo, Sadio were already very good when we signed. VVD and Ali were even acquired at world class fees.

      How many Robertsons did we sign? Under £10m and became captain of your national team and became close to world class. How many?

      Aye. When we've bought proven quality pretty much all have worked out well for us.

      Gotta go for it tonight right from the off, keep at them from the whistle, don't let them settle into any sort of pattern and batter their goal, would love to see the much missed Diaz get a run out later on in the game and punish tired legs.

      The crowd will be up for it tonight so we need to keep them quiet, the travelling Kop will be in full voice with their repertoire of brilliant songs.

      Gone for a very slight LFC win, I hope so anyway, come on you mighty redmen!!

      Any of their players on a goal drought? Might be worth a bet on them scoring 😂 other than that I’m hopeful for a 2-1 win.
