I say it again Four Blood Nil, oh and three nil at half time first time we bee three nil up at half time since playing Scunthorpe in League One 15 January 2011. Simon Grayson was in charge and those three goals were scored 12 first-half minutes. Sanchez Watt fired the first one in, before Max Gradel doubled the lead and Bradley Johnson rifled the third. And in the 88 minute substitute Davide Somma rounded off a superb home four – nil.
My 3-1 Varney to score first was a non-starter as Varney was on the bench so I made an inspired decision to put a few bob on Leeds 4-0 truly inspired as it turned out. It may all have been even better but I have lost my lottery ticket so I could be a winner with no idea I’ve won, if you found it well done to you if it’s a big winner a small donation would be appreciated you lucky begger!
So after that win twitter was a fun place to be for a change, people were so up for it there was very little moaning or getting at Leeds players (excepting @R_Hall4 who I think may have left his phone lying around and a child seems to have started sending tweets on his behalf!).
People who sit around me in N8 were starting to write off the season already, I wonder if they are more optimistic this morning?
Can BMD do a Reading at Leeds?
In their promotion season their season was not underway really until January;
The first six games yeilded 4 points, one win, one draw and four losses they were also dumped out of the Carling Cup by Crystal Palace.
The next nine games they went undefeated but with only three wins.
So where we are today, twelve games gone, Leeds are in ninth place with seventeen points and we have a positive goal difference of one. In their promotion season Reading were in fourteenth place (Leeds were in tenth) on sixteen points and with a plus one goal difference. This season Burnley and QPR are on 29 and 27 points in 2011-12 Southamption were only on 26.
So if BMD can work his magic with the Leeds team we are in a better place than his Championship winning Reading team of 2012.
Next three up Huddersfield away, Yeovil home and Charlton away.
Our current form home wins 50%, away 33%. So after losing to Derby, Millwall and Reading away, statistically we should win one if not both away games.
Huddersfield have been a boggie side for Leeds only winning twice in the past eight meetings, losing four of these and drawing the two remaining fixtures.
Against Palace the last ten meetings we have faired a little better winning five, but away at Palace we have won only one game and drawn and lost two.
At home we have won our last two home games but Yeovil away wins are on 17% so I recon neck out for six points from the next three games.
