Football & illness go hand in hand

Once again I have flu for the second time this year and its only the start of march , Bad times.

On Saturday Leeds beat local rivals Doncaster 5-2 in our most successful show of attacking football all season with the combination of GBH (Gradel , Becchio & Howson) getting the goals for us , with 35 league games now played we have scored a very surprising 67 goals although we have shipped 57 making our goal difference look a lot worse than it should be .

Saturdays game vs Donny highlighted a problem we have had all season long NOT TAKING OUR CHANCES       which considering the amount of goals we have scored is a scary thought , and then ending up conceding a goal or two against the run of play.

But with a minimum of 11 games to go we sit relatively comfortable in 6Th place 4 points ahead of Burnley in 7th place  although they do have 2 games in hand on us more exciting is the gap of only 5 points to Swansea in 2nd place and with Preston away tonight (who require a damn good beating after they beat us unbelievably 4-6 earlier this season) comes the chance to finally end our Tuesday night problems. With the addition of Aston Villa Central midfielder Barry Bannan added to the squad we are looking good for the remainder of the season , one thing for sure is it's going to be entertaining.
