    We need to sort out our London jinx before the start of a new season. Fulham relegated would be one less trip assuming we stay up.

    What’s weird is all my Leeds supporting mates feel the same, we’re not safe yet. My non Leeds supporting ones think I’m barmy all saying we’re safe as houses

    That's what 17 years of crap as done to you Ristac, we're safe mate. Do you honestly think we're going to go through the rest of the season and not get 4 more points, yesterday to me was a big confidence boost, we showed a different element to our game. The character of our team is second to non

    Exactly this

    Telling Bielsa response to media when he said “apparently they have a superior team to ours and will make Champions League. They had a good first half we had a better 2nd half” it was almost like Bielsa had found how to ridicule some media

    I think we will, I hope we do but our record for the past six game is LLWLLD if we were to lose the next two we’d be on 4 points out of a possible 24 and we’d be right in the bad mix not to mention we’d then be facing the two Manchester’s either side of Liverpool.

    It’s very easy in this division to string together a run of defeats. Our next two games we need 4-6 points, we can’t allow Fulham to gain any ground

    That run of results ain't great but we only have equal them in the next 6, then we still have 4 more games after that. Just watched Southampton, they have a lot more to worry about than us.

    Leeds have got 6 matches we should win which would mean we end the season on 54 points. Worst case scenario we only draw those games which would mean we end on 42 points.

    Matches we should lose are Man City, Liverpool, Man Utd, Spurs, and whos to say we dont take any points?

    matches we should win are, Fulham, Sheff Utd, BHA, Burnley, Southampton and WBA

    In all fairness to ourselves we know in our hearts that we won’t be going down but it is still mathematically possible. 1A1A9F3D-509F-4830-90B8-584B310B3CAB.jpeg

    From the bottom 10 teams Leeds have the best points per game average and the best goal difference. We also have a game in hand on Palace who moved above us yesterday by 1 point. Even a draw on Friday moves us back above them :emoticon-0148-yes:

    As I've posted on the weekender...relative form (last 8) sees us finish on 44.8 points.

    Comfortably safe, but not much room for error should our form completely collapse.

    Wolves v Liverpool 0-1
    Sounds as though Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patrico has had a very bad clash with Conor Coady

    Looking at the top 10 in the Premier League I estimated that we have actually taken at least 12 points from them and the only teams we havent taken any are Liverpool, Spurs and Man Utd. We have still to play a couple of them. We are the only team to take so many points from top 10 teams, so another reason Im not worried

    Going to be well tight between Newcastle and Fulham. Looking at fixtures I give Fulham 9 points maximum and Newcastle 8 points max. Obviously I could be wrong and one if them could smash it but to me Fulham have gone by 1 point

    As a neutral I hope it goes to the last day when Fulham play Newcastle. Imagine the pressure on the players for that game. Like a play off final.
