That they’re going to lose, that is, according to what I’ve been reading during the odd chances I’ve had to look at the internet today.
How times have changed.
For the last few seasons, Leeds have been at least challenging, but it seems this season, it’s only their form in the first month that has kept them out of serious danger.
Their current form is the stuff relegation is made of and the team shows no backbone and fight, even if they take the lead.
All sad stuff and reminiscent of us not so long back.
Things aren’t helped by the fact that Leeds have around ten first team players out and they’re down to the squad’s bare-bones.
Things are so bad that I’ve seen Leeds’ fan’s predictions of a 4-1 win for us.
Which should bode well, shouldn’t it?
Except we’re the Villa and things rarely go that smoothly.
I see there’s mention that Bruce might change things up for this game and while it would be nice to see some of our upcoming players getting a game, I wouldn’t bank on it and I don’t see him changing much.
Kodjia will probably get another half hour, if he doesn’t start.
While on the face of things I ought to be predicting an easy win, we all know that we can sometimes seriously struggle against weaker sides.
And every time we go on a roll, so it seems the team have a penchant for giving us a kick in the teeth.
Hopefully that won’t happen tonight though and I’m going to have to go for the win.
I certainly don’t think it’ll be anywhere near straight-forward though.
A hard-fought 2-1.
Which will do.
