Heís Mr Leeds for me. The comically bad defender celebration adding to the joy!

Seemingly he was trying to do a Robby Keane celebration.  Nil  Points.
I have more respect for a man
that says what he means and
means what he says...

Burnley had a huge win over Everton who are only a point above them. Both teams are now 11/10 to be relegated.
Leeds are 23/5.

I suppose a draw would have been a better result for us last night

100% correct. Burnley's win brings the relegation zone two points closer to our tail.

Another huge weekend. If we win at Vicarage Road I will start allowing myself to breathe more easily. Defeat, and a Burnley win at Norwich and we are right back in the mire.

And suddenly, in a matter of hours, things look so different.

Newcastle beat Wolves last night. I'd expect Burnley to take Norwich tomorrow, and with Everton winning against an absolutely abject Manure, we now need to win this afternoon to essentially stand still.

I have a bad feeling about all of this.

Team named and one change - Kock comes in for Forshaw. Phillips starts on the bench.

Leeds are 5/1. The bookies don't take the gaaboard nihilism into account.
And the Goal Difference is up to minus 30 which is only the third worst in the division.

Huge results after the Everton defeat of Manure.

Beating Watford was essential and was managed, albeit, it was nowhere near as comfortable as the score-line might suggest. At 1-0 up, Watford had a huge chance to equalise which was spurned. Rodrigo seems to be playing like a Spanish international now, under Marsch, which is great to see as he is an excellent player. The return of Philips and Cooper is also adding a lot to Leeds defensively.

Norwich's defeat of Burnley is devastating for the Lancashire club. They will find that hard to come back from that, although they still have games to turn it around.

A few matches ago I thought 35 points might see us safe, although I'm increasingly feeling it might take more. It's difficult though to say with any clarity. Palace away next, and that is this night fortnight. Situation will be much clearer when we next take to the field.

35 will almost certainly be enough. Leeds will finish with at least 37. The current bottom 3 will go.

It is interesting to look at the form.
Leeds have 3 wins /5
Everton have 2/5
The bottom 3 have 1/5

It's not just that Leeds and Everton are higher up the table. They are more productive than the others.
Burnley had a great win but lost the next game

Points on the board are what matters at the bottom. In most cases games in hand donít mean extra points although itís hard not to think that way when the chips are down.

A fit Phillips makes all the difference for Leeds, and has for the past 3-4 years.  He makes them a difficult side to break down.

Agreed totally Billy. I also think Cooper's leadership is a factor - something I have only come to appreciate with his absence. Throw in the absence of Bamford who is so important from a pressing point of view and it is clear how much key injuries impacted the squad and the season. A relatively clean bill of health and surely these worries would have been behind us and MB would have still been in post and able to finish up this Summer on his own terms, as we all would have wanted.

Bielsa's Aughrim was the goal difference. Still 3rd worst in the division now after a reasonable run.
 With a depleted panel he needed to do something different. The change appears to have been vindicated, helped by Burnley  imploding.
