Internationals, away tickets and a trip to Bristol!
This weekend we travel to Bristol to play City. A repeat of Luciano's quick fire hat trick when the teams met at Elland Road wouldn't go a miss but I think I will lower my expectations for this game. First of all let's hope the floodlights to stay on for the whole game, unlike our last away trek to Pompey, then let's have another clean sheet to follow up last week's shut out of Coventry and finally a couple of goal cushion as we enter the final 10 minutes of the game will do very nicely thank you very much. We will of course have a new face in the squad in the shape of Andy Lichaj. Harking back to the international theme he is a current international for the USA so hopefully he will help plug a gap with Connolly absent for a month. Apparently his surname is pronounced Ly-chee...............sounds a bit fruity to me! Anyhow good luck to him and I hope he uses his stay at the mighty whites to enhance his reputation rather than justify his lack of opportunities at his host club Villa.
Up bright and early then for the long trip to Bristol. Recent trips to that fair city have been rewarding let's hope tomorrow is the same. This is a key month for Leeds and all the other promotion hopefuls. Let's make sure we're tucked nicely on the rails ready for the final furlong. Seat belts fastened, oxygen masks at the ready here we go again!
