West Brom are the visitors to Elland Road on Friday night as Leeds look to forget about their disappointing performance at Loftus Road in midweek!

West Brom has lost just once in eight away trips and are the form team away from home!

Leeds record at home is almost as impressive, winning eight out the the last eleven home games, with just two losses and a draw!

Unfortunately Leeds goals have dried up, and to make it worse, they have started to concede.

In their last eight games, Leeds have scored eleven, and conceded ten!

It remains to be seen whether Bielsa will buck the trend and makes wholesale changes?

Both Ayling and Roberts came in for particular stick from the social media boo boys after Tuesday nights performance. As did Harrison but to a lessor degree.

Bielsa will have to choose between Alioski and fit again Douglas at left back!

If he does choose the ex Wolves (so called free kick specialist), will Alioski play on the left wing instead of Harrison?

Does the Leeds midfield need a shake up? Has Klich gone off the boil?

What about Brown, surely he needs proper game time?

Klich is LUFC's centre midfield ..has to do it all..Been a top 3 player last two games for me.

It gets worse, aside from us picking the exact same matchday 18 that lost to the worst side in the league till we played them.

3 fitness boosts for WBA, Hegazi, Murphy and Robson Kanu all passed fit.

DOnt get picking the same side 3 games in a row especially when its 3 in 6 days and they have been poor to dire for the previous 2.

An absolute must in Tuesdays game was a kid who can run at defenders like Clarke. Shacks should have came on end of story.
They are not only possible game changers but as they are unknown quantities the opposition dont know what they are capable of.
What do we do.....Brown hopelessly off the pace and Douglas
Fair play to Dallas for having a go.
My my my, such a lot of guns around town and so few brains

Not surprised he isnt changing anything, MB is loyal to a fault, but we looked really poor vs QPR im disappointed to the max he hasnt changed things around, maybe rewarded some of our u23s, just something different.

Nope, here is our team, here are our tactics, crack on WBA.

We've missed him and we hope he recovers fast. He's a different player for us. He gives us something else,"

Pablo knows.

Come back soon Jack.

I was hoping against hope that Bielsa would make some changes, but tbh I'm not surprised.

I guess that he has to stick with Bamford, as Roofe's not available. But Shackleton could've come in for Ayling and maybe Dallas for Harrison, as Dallas did have that one good run at QPR. I'm baffled as to why we brought Brown in, as it looks like he's still not ready (definitely not match fit, and never will be if he never gets a run out) or Bielsa has no faith in him.

I hope Bielsa has got this right, but the evidence of recent games says we are on the slide. I fear that he will only change things round once the games up, but I really do hope that these lads can make a miraculous transformation from what we've seen lately.

I was optimistic for auto promotion, but have to say my confidence in these players has evaporated after Norwich, Bolton and QPR.

Yeah, Gayle is a very annoying cnut :rant:

One positive is that we haven't had to wait too long to bounce back from Tuesday. The lads will be raring to go on Friday.

I for one feel that we will play well tomorrow night.

But what would we rather have at this point in the campaign? A performance or the points?

You're right Ian, they should be chomping at the bit.

Let's hope you're right about them playing well, the last really good performance was Derby and that was also after many iffy performances.

Definitely take the points, will be more than happy with a fluke, penalty, or WBA scoring an own goal.

This possession football is great, but it has to produce goals. We spend way too much time pissing about in our own half, or across the half-way line. The one time Dallas ran at QPR the other night they were stood like statues as they weren't expecting it from us and Dallas/Bamford should have made that count.

We've become very predictable and too easy for the opposition to manage.

the facts are 5 defeats in 10 tells its own story.
tbh im disappointed he's gone with the same 11 the same 11 that struggled against relegation fodder bolton and a very poor QPR team .
However i agree with faaip if we can just hang in there for a few weeks or so till our key players are back we would still hopefully have a chance for the auto's in the run in . its just so frustrating and annoying because personally i still believe when we got our best side out we are as good if not better than anyone in this league. 12 games still to go yet lots of twists and turns yet . like most of our passionate supporters be absolutely f**king gutted if we blow this chance .

I was hoping he might have put Berardi in to give us some steel. Jansson, Cooper and Phillips, etc, definitely need to put some rough stuff in against WBA and get us fired up again and knock them off their game - without getting sent off of course.

It is still very possible, but we need points right now to get us out of this slump.

I'm still feeling very gutted about QPR and hope we put it right tomorrow.

It would be devastating if we blow it after our best season for a very long time.

The crumb of comfort i have is if WBA were a better team then us they would be top and strolling to promotion.

That squad is streets ahead of us, Norwich, Blades, everyone really.

If they were as good a team as they should be they should be top, but there not.

We are the better team, if we play to our best our best this season is better then WBA.

We can beat them, but we need to find those top performances again, Derby, Stoke, Norwich.
