Match Day Moments - (Dirty) Leeds (League Cup - a)

Match Day Moments - (Dirty) Leeds (League Cup - a)

It`s time to put the disappointment of Sunday and the defeat in the FIFA Club World Cup Final behind us as we continue our pursuit of domestic glory.

As I`ve probably mentioned numerous times before, in the build-up, Eland Road is not a place for the faint-hearted and tonight`s fixture has that aura about it that fixtures with a history of rivalry inevitably do.

Rafa takes his tired troops to Elland Road with a trio suspended - Cahill, Ramires and Mikel - whilst Terry and Romeu are out injured. One recent absentee, Daniel Sturridge, is back in full training but won`t, we`re told, be considered (saving him for a January exit I wonder).

As usual, we`re asking you to join us, from 19:15 onwards, whereby we`ll be on hand to discuss the starting eleven, the possible tactics and all the gory action as it unfolds up in darkest Yorkshire.

Be here or be square!

Saw a tweet about a big fight on a train (or near one) between Chelsea and Leeds supporters. I've always lived in the states and don't know much about Leeds, but in my mind I keep thinking of The Damned United and Green Street Hooligans. Whatever atmosphere I just want to see a committed performance. I hope we're up for the battle.

Forgive me for saying this, i have a feeling we'll get knocked out of the COC tonight.... I no longer have confidence in the team to deliver when it really matters. I'm saddened and only victory tonight will cheer me up a bit but i can't see it happening.... Brace yourselves fella, be ready for the worst!!!

Predicting the lineup today will very much be a bigger task. I will go with cech, caesar, ivanovic, luiz, bertrand, lampard, oscar, hazard, mata, piazon, torres with danny coming in early in the second half.
