Dirty Leeds; Bloody Fulham.
Most of us have taken our eye of the ultimate goal this week with Jonjo's move to Liverpool causing all kinds of debate. The doomsayers reckon we are close to the administrators door, others brooded over the fact that we are a selling club, who isn't? Some say we got good money for potential, some like me just wished we'd have seen more of the 18-year old before he was sold. Whatever I very much doubt if the man who signed Jonjo for Liverpool will be around next season anyway.
On to tomorrow then and the pressure if off us a little but for four reasons a win would be very satisfying:
1. to secure 5th place, hopefully 4th,
2. to help Millwall get 2nd spot and thus avoid the grief of playing them again,
3. to keep up the play-off momentum,
4. to not have to suffer another promotion party on our own patch.
Apparently Sam Sodje will return tomorrow following a knee injury although according to this
it sounds like he may have got to blow on the head as well! I wouldn't be surprised however if Llera starts and Parky keeps Sodje for the play-offs. The game should be live on the web as it's being beamed back to an expectant Elland Road. I'll be watching.
Finally congratulations to Fulham after their win over Hamburg
last night. I have for a long time had a very irrational hatred of Fulham probably because of their owner and the fact that before it was fashionable Fayed bought them success. Danny Murphy's smug face doesn't help and they have regularly featured in my top 5 most hated clubs.
Nonetheless I found myself punching the air after Gera scored last night. So through gritted and jealous teeth well done Fulham. What a superb manager that Roy Hodgson is.
