Leeds ensured they remain at the top of the Championship table after a 3-2 home win against Ipswich on Saturday. The result kept Leeds’ home unbeaten run going and saw them remain top of the pile, however only on goal difference. Tuesday will see us come head-to-head with Cardiff, who are one of those sides who sit on the same points as us. Despite us only being 9 games into the season, victory over the Bluebirds would be a massive, massive result for Leeds and it’s arguably a must-win already.

GK – Felix Wiedwald – Despite his absolute howler for Ipswich’s second goal and his constant flapping at crosses I feel Thomas Christiansen will stick with Wiedwald in between the sticks. I’m all for giving him time I just hope that’s all he needs, he’s rated highly enough in Germany and there’s got to be a reason for that.

Into the defence…



  1. There are so many options at the moment. For me we definitely need Viera and Klich on the bench with a view to bringing one on if we are struggling.
    I can’t see why we can’t win this one and Sunday as well. We need a really good start though.

  2. I’m looking for a win and if the game was purely footballing, we would win it. But Cardiff will come with a physical dimension that we have so far not found comfortable. So we’ll need players who can cope with that.

    Also, Weidweld is a liability that will be targeted. We should drop him as the stakes are too high to risk him.

  3. I agree with you regarding all of your selections EXCEPT THE KEEPER.
    Weidwald was crap in Germany and his last 5 games were riddled with mistakes and goals they blamed on him.

    He hasn’t really been tested here BUT: he can’t kick straight (most go off the park),
    he comes when he shouldn’t,
    he stays when he should come (first goal saturday was a cross into the 6 yard box and he stayed on his line), THE SECOND WAS TOTALLY HIS FAULT,
    …and he cannot catch a ball only parry like most continentals.
    The only reason he has kept so many clean sheets is because of the defense – and without Jansson on saturday he was absolutely found wanting right through the game.
    In short he is second, only to Rahubka – so WHY is he being selected – after nine games he ain’t going to improve!
    Why oh why did we get rid of Green – and we’ll have to play Lonergan (who we got rid of because he wasn’t good enough to be our first choice keeper when we had a crap team!

    …And I forgot to say that HE PANICKS – just witness the number of times that his throwouts to defenders on saturday gave all of us in the stands heart attacks – he was throwing out to them even when they were being marked by the two wingers and their number 10! Every club in the Championship now knows how to play him – he should never play for us again – and if he plays against Warnock’s Cardiff we’ll lose because Warnock is no dummy manager and he will see our weakness!

  4. it’s going to be a very physical game and we will need to start with pysical players i.e. Lonergan , Ayling , Jannsen, Cooper, Berardi. Dallas , Klische, O’kane. Saiz , Lasogga, Philipps. Option is Ayling right midfield and Shaughnessy rb and Klische starts later. Alioski not robust enough to start.Good that we have so much depth to change around regarding what opposition we have.
