The Awesome Foursome remembered.
The pre match tribute will be an emotional prelude to what is an important game for Leeds. Millwall will provide a stiff test for Leeds as they look to build on their impressive away form and break a run of disappointing performances at LS11. South Bermondsey's finest have had the distinct edge in matches between the two rivals in recent years despite last year's fine 3.1 home win for Leeds so I suspect Lord Larry's will be approaching the game with extreme caution. The 4.5.1 formation that morphs into 22.214.171.124 when we attack served us so well at the City ground and will almost certainly be used to pick off the Lions. Howson was back to his best at Forest capping a fine performance with a stunning volleyed goal. Shorn of the shackles of playing a deep midfield role his natural attacking tendencies shone through as he proudly led his home town team to a famous victory. The change of formation also seemed to suit the flying flankers, Snoddy and White, and Mr Becchio leading the line with renewed vim and vigour as he relished the physical battle with Wes Morgan. Even Michael Brown looked like an accomplished midfielder as he perfectly fulfilled the role of holding midfield man and ball winner.............even though his turning circle still seems to be only just smaller than that of HMS Ark Royal!
