I cannot see how that Bielsa bloke has kept he's job. He really isn't the sharpest knife in the box.

Been looking forward to this trip since they got promoted last year, another new ground to tick off and should be a tasty one I'd imagine.

There's been trouble at all of their away league games this season. Often fight amongst themselves too., usually fans from different areas, eg Doncaster or Scarborough Whites.
Last time we played there with fans they attacked the away escort after the game.

Leeds are a perfect team for us. They never change how they play, constantly on the attack and leaving space to counter. As long as we’re on our game, we should win this. We might concede, but I’d back us to have plenty of chances.

L*wro has predicted a loss for us. That is always a hopeful sign.

Mark Lawrenson - "BBC Football Expert":

Leeds v West Ham

Leeds are yet to win this season, and they don't seem to carry the same threat going forward as they did last season. They are still conceding plenty of goals, though - 12 in five league games so far, and at least one in every match.

Despite their poor form, I still think Marcelo Bielsa's side will come good sooner rather than later. West Ham's only league defeat came against Manchester United in very strange circumstances, but I fancy Leeds to edge this one.

Lawro's prediction: 2-1


So the Leeds that haven't won, are struggling going forward, shipping goals for fun and are now missing their main striker will beat a solid West Ham team whose only loss this season was a narrow loss against Man Utd "in very strange circumstances"?

Even allowing for my natural pessimism as a West Ham fan, that's a real stretch.

I think he is right - the narrow unlucky loss and win at Old Trafford will have wrecked our teams confidence so I’m going for a thumping 5-0 Leeds win.

Has there ever been a fixture that feels more like we should win?

That's not even a knock on Leeds – they're a good team when they're on song but everything about them is suited to how we play, from the fact they come onto you regardless of match context through to their weak set-piece defence. And now they're decimated by injury, Antonio is back and rested, and Lawro is predicting we'll lose – all the conventional indications of victory are there.

(Leeds 3-1 West Ham)

At a boy Georgie. We haven't got Manuel Da Costa, Jonny Specs and Herita Illunga as a back 3 and Collison and Scotty Parker in a midfield diamond and Zavon Hines and Jiminez up front for us tomorrow you know,

All of this confidence from posters makes me uncomfortable. To balance things out, I think we are awful and Leeds are better than us in every department.

Leeds 9-1 West Ham, Meslier hattrick.

Unsettles me as well, my 43 years have taught me, we rarely win when we are expected to. However we are currently massive and all my baggage doesn't really apply right now so.. 3-0 to us :rofl:

Sadly it's transitioned past the stage of nice traditional football ground to complete dump.

With Antonio back I am quietly confident. Not so confident I'll be able to fuel up to get to Leeds though :crylol:

Yeah, the 1-1 draw with Brighton during last season's final run, when Benny scraped a late, late equaliser. Despite Brighton being our bogie side, I just could not see any other outcome other than a convincing victory for our lot.

Similarly, the home 2-2 draw against a very poor, winless Palace a couple of weeks ago. Despite us squandering key games against them in previous seasons (not least, Pellers' final year), I just could not see any other outcome other than us beating Palace.

I have the same feeling about Leeds tomorrow. I just can't see any other outcome other than us beating an injury-hit, winless Leeds.

Which is why it will be a draw.

I see what you mean, but not completely. Palace followed up a 2-2 at ours by thrashing Spurs.

What we will do is to go back to something we maintained, barring the odd match, last season, which is a 50% win rate.

There's always a chance of an upset, but we go there full of confidence that, if we show patience, the opposition will eventually give us chances to score. The longer Zouma remains part of our final line of defence, the better our chances of a clean sheet.

Score draw I reckon. They aren’t as bad as their position suggests as their losses have been against two of the likely title challengers. Also, I’m inclined not to believe some of their injury doubts.

No doubt the media will make a lot of Philips and Rice facing off - but they had issues with Benrahma last season at their place so hopefully he can replicate that again.
