A great 3-2 away win by Leeds against 4th place West Ham.

A great win seeing we are decimated with injury and illness, and lost another 2 players during the game, lifts us 9 points clear of relegation.

Eleven players out injured and 2 more before half time, what a great win.


"Whilst that happened in north London, on the east side of the capital, Bielsa, with over 11 senior players out injured, got on with the job and helped Leeds record a deserved 3-2 win over West Ham.

No manager has played more teenagers in the Premier League this season than the Leeds boss and Tottenham fans praised the world-renowned coach for getting on with it and not moaning.

If Leeds’ injury list is bad enough, it became even worse at the London Stadium because Junior Firpo and Adan Forshaw were forced off within minutes of each other in the first half.

Bielsa’s reaction? To throw on two teenagers, not forgetting that he also named 15-year-old, Archie Gray, the great-nephew of club legend Eddie, on the bench.

Not just to Arsenal, but Bielsa is an example to the rest of the Premier League that you can deal with a crisis by using your youngsters, rather than asking for games to be called off."

What a *smile* joke that the league allowed Aresenal's request. Should have called them out and told them they were taking the *smile*. Not enough players to field a team? What a load of bollocks. These big clubs hoard so much talent they would be able to field four or more teams with all of the players in their system. Soft as butter.

Meanwhile Leeds are trying to rise back up the ranks via more financially sustainable means. Hence, just don't have the volume of players. But simply get on with the job by elevating U23s and academy players.

Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa was questioned today if he had considered asking for a postponement of the game. He replied “No, because we didn't have any reason to ask for it." What a classy & honest response

Yeah bit of a joke really. I think the Ars only had 1 player out with Covid, the rest were either injured or at the African cup.

Unfortunately Arsenal and Spurs ahead with games in hand.
Top 6 go to European leagues. Not that they can all get three points a game as someone has to lose or draw I've put all three teams at West Ham's 23 games and it could look something like this -

1. City - 57
2. Liverpool - 51
3. Tottenham - 48
4. Chelsea - 44
5. Arsenal - 44
6. United - 41
7. Wolves - 40
8. West Ham - 37

Would luv to see U guys knock a United or The Arseofall out... Or both!! :mhihi

Re-Adjusted after Arsenal 0-0 this morning, losing two points and Chelsea 2-0 Tottenham losing 3 points. Fourth spot maybe out of reach, but Arsenal and United aren't much better than yourselves, even spending MEGA BUCKS. United probably spent on the wrong Portuguese players, just saying!! ;) (Still based on all playing 23 games winning any games in hand). -

1. City - 57 (CL)
2. Liverpool - 51 (CL)
3. Tottenham - 45 (CL)
4. Chelsea - 44 (CL)
5. Arsenal - 42 (EL)
6. United - 41 (ECL)
7. Wolves - 40
8. West Ham - 37

Despite this morning, Conte has Spurs on track. But unless Levy opens the purse strings, he will end up like Poch.

But the title race is over, City are home.
