Don't want to admit how many times I've watched the extended highlights of the West Brom game! Just so much wonderful stuff to admire, the commitment, the energy levels, the tackling and attacking in packs all topped off by so many top notch individual performances! The team spirit shows through in ever congratulation and celebration of individual skill. WoW!

Naming the team in advance doesn't really make one jot of difference if the players play like that!

Due to injuries we also approach the season end with some relatively fresh legs to support the heavily worked. Bamford coming into form and match fitness, probably a month of fresh Roofe and Roberts who hasn't been overworked . As well as Clarke, Dallas, Douglas, Beradi and Shackleton to pitch in with relatively fresh legs as well.

Bristol game important to show we are not going to yo yo to the finish of the season and then Reading away to really put the ghosts of QPR to bed and hopefully chip away further at the goal difference.

Got to go, back to the highlights!

Spanish, I always enjoy and value your U23 reports etc and as you do, I keep looking at the highlights of the Brom game. Us not coming from behind late in the game, but ahead in 16 seconds and on fire, wtf? Didn't see that coming. Good times mate. Onwards n upwards. We are Leeds! Always.

The proof in the pudding will be can we play two on the bounce like that or even more than two.
If we can nobody will live with us.

You are good of course right Aus, a performance in the same vein will really impress. Be interesting to see how a club like Bristol will look to play us. They are at home and need the points but would 1 from us be enough! I imagine rival coaches will be pouring through the videos of The West Brom and QPR games to try and find the key!

The key for me about West Brom is it shows we can do it and it gives the players a real reference point for a close to perfect performance!

Another sublime contribution from our POTS. Aus you're quite right. George liking Whitey and Aus? Something strange happening. We must be going up.

The key is in our own play. If we turn up and give everything we are unplayable - if we don’t turn up and just expect the points it results in a struggle. Key for us is to start quickly and get the first goal or at the very least don’t concede first.

Alf nailed it on the head . The key is the first 20 minutes or so . If we can cut out switching off at set pieces or the odd sloppy pass in our defensive third and score first we will produce more results and displays like Friday . But if we concede early and teams put two banks of four in front of us makes it very hard to play with that kind of freedom .

Georgie, still not totally convinced that your account hasn’t been hacked or at the very least you are sharing it with your alter ego!

Still hoping that your earlier predictions for March don’t come to fruition or we won’t be celebrating anything! We are off to a good start in March, long May it continue, still 12 more points to play for before the month is out!

Beware the ides of March!

Spanish, I have the same thoughts regarding the fresh legs, however MB doesn't change a team as willingly as most manager, so will the offer of players with fresher legs be a consideration for our manager?

my point is highlighted by Ayling. He came back in to the side after injury and although he has not looked at his best, MB has stuck with him. And in so doing has allowed him to play himself back into form.


Harrison has been played when many have thought he shouldn't

Hopefully Bamford is being treated the same way. He didn't look sharp when he first came in but he is now showing signs of reading from the same page as the other players.

Think Bristol will be a good game we play well against attacking teams. Trouble is a lot of teams will try to stop us playing and we need to take our chances in those sort of games, something we have not been doing. WBA game will have been a shot in the arm for the lads and let's hope they carry that momentum with them for the rest of the games, which i believe we can win them all if everyone is on song. Will be an interesting month me thinks, not just for us.

Axe, the good thing is that those options are there. The injury to Roofe for example has given Bamford, real responsibility and time as the main striker but also done the same for Roberts at 10, and both have played less of the season, Even Harrison, although hasn’t played as many minutes as some.

Bielsa’s loyalty to players, can be a little frustrating at times when somone is having a tough spell but I also think it is a big part of his success. And he sees them in training and sees how willing and committed they are to work on his ideas.
