Short answer is that, yes, if you are unlucky a few random people get pulled up walking towards the security check-in.

However I had an odd experience on Wednesday whilst I was queueing at the turnstile - i.e. after security checks etc.

Someone in a h-viz came up to me demanding to see some identification. I said here's my ticket (printed out) with my name on it.

He said "no that's no good, haven't you got something else? We need ID. What about a Covid pass?"

As it happens I had a printed Covid pass, but he wasn't actually asking to see that specifically, he was asking for some ID from me. Was he attempting to cross-check the name on the ticket with the bearer?

Anyway, he got distracted and moved on to someone else but it was all a bit odd - or not, given the Club's previous.
Would have been tempted to tell him to do one tbh. if he was official, let him get his boss. Why would he need to see ID?

Probably a Temp 'jobsworth' trying on his jacket. When his little moment passed he moved on.

It's always weird to play a team twice in one week. I would be surprised if Leeds play as poorly and lethargically as they did last week. They are now starting to worry about relegation, so the FA Cup probably was not their biggest concern.

I hope that Cresswell can play the full 90. Moyes might also want to put Fornals on the left to help Cresswell cover Rafinha.

Gutted Llorente is out, Antonio absolutely murdered him last weekend.

If Soucek is fit / covid free then he starts for me.
I wouldn't drop Fornals as he's so important in initiating our counters which will be frequent if Leeds adopt their plan A.
That means regrettably that either Lanzini or Vlasic miss out on a start.
Nice problem to have though.

Another (very minor) selection issue for the bench - who could come on for Antonio (to give him a rest) should we be a couple of goals up?
Possibly a chance for Oko-flex or Perkins as I suspect there'll be a huge amount of space to run into behind the defence. I don't know enough about either players game but I get the impression that Perkins likes to hang on the last defenders shoulder, has decent movement and a bit of pace.
Or will it be a simple shore it up and bring on Arfur / Noble?

Yes and their young CB making his debut Leo Hjelde was quite good. He more than competed with Mich.

This is a bit random but here goes anyway.

Top 4, last 5 Prem League matches, As it stands (Sat morning)....

Team Last 5 Points Dropped (last 5)

Citeh WWWW 0
Chelski DDWDD 8
Scousers WWDLD 7
Hammers LLWWW 6

So going by that, top 4 only, "points dropped last 5 matches" mini table would be....

1. Man City
2. West Ham
3. Liverpool
4. Chelsea

A bit random and obviously set to change with the Citeh/Chelski game at lunchtime. And Liverpool will prob beat Brentford tomorrow.

Anyways, hopefully a good result against Leeds tomorrow to keep things going.

Need to win this one and hope other matches go our way which they easily could.
City to beat chelski
Spurs v arse draw
Villa to beat man utd
Brentford to get a point

BUT we must win.

If only we had that second striker to cover ant . Plus another fit CB

Two players defo needed in the window

So basically a current form table of the top 4?

A bit misleading really. If everyone's form for the next five games is the exactly the same as the past five, we drop to fifth in the league - and are merely two points ahead of sixth (who have three games in hand)!
And five points ahead of seventh, but who have two games in hand.

Here's your current form table for the Top 8:
Man City 15 pts
Arsena l 12
TH 11
Man Utd 10
WHU 9
Liv'pl 8
B &HA 8
Chelsea 7

Chill. It was a lighthearted observation, nothing more. Just noting Hammers recent form not bad compared with 2 of the other 3. Nowt else.

I can see Zouma starting (for Diop). But then same starting line up as Wednesday, assuming Soucek still out, otherwise he plays and Fornals to bench.

I thought Dawson has been nursing an injury - in which case I reckon Zouma and Diop will be the pairing.

Is Zouma back then? Completely missed that! Thought he was at least another month away!
