The first home game of the season is upon us, an expectant Elland Road crowd which has seen near 30,000 tickets sold. It’s gearing up to be a cracker but who should be in the starting line-up for Leeds on Saturday? This is my view.

GK – Rob Green – The penalty save should do his confidence the world of good after his howler last weekend. Here’s hoping he recreates the form that made him England’s number 1.



  1. It’s hard to be optimistic after the horror show against Q.P.R. and I take very little solace from the fact it took us penalties to beat lowly little Fleetwood.

  2. I would be tempted to make one change from the suggested line up … without apportioning any blame whatsoever to Lewie Coyle, who I believe has a tremendous future in front of him, I would be tempted to select Luke Ayling at RB. his experience would be beneficial to an already fragile back line and his fitness shouldn’t be a problem … he completed a full pre-season with Bristol and played 90 minutes in their 1st Championship game against Wigan; left out of their midweek game in The League Cup, presumably because of the imminent transfer.

  3. Leeds are still week in front of the back four, needing a joey Barton ,batty type player , this was evident as two poor teams ripped them apart, hopefully bridcut or a similar player can be brought in urgent , until this happens I see Birmingham who are very well organised with this manager winning ,1-2

  4. You’ve got to take the 120 minutes played on wednesday into account so a bit of rest, like the substitution bench for some and give ‘their chance’to start for some fresher legs.
