    We're well and truly down to the bare bones now; Saiz gone, Phillips suspended, Douglas injured, Baker returned to Chelsea and now apparently Hernandez is out. Add in all of our other long term injuries such as Berardi, Dallas, Bamford and Brown we'll be lucky to field a full squad. Only positive is Cooper is back so we'll be able to play 2 centre-halves for the first time since November.

    Praying we can get through this on adrenaline alone, going for a score draw.

    It seriously looks like we'll be playing our u23's on Friday.

    Need to look at a transfer or two now...

    The injuries are just too much. I think we will blow this lead and hopefully scrape into the playoffs.

    As others have said, our extensive injury list and our already thin squad will be our downfall. Essentially we have 8 or 9 really good players capable of being in a league winning team. Unfortunately the only back up we have are either mediocre or a handful of promising youngsters who have already exceeded expectation this year.

    Yes we are unlucky to have 7 or 8 injuries at a time and two season long loans that have had to return early but to be honest we'd have struggled with half the amount of injuries. Bielsa has done well to get us to where we are with what we have but I think the next few weeks will be a step too far and we'll slip back into the play offs.

    Leeds 1 - 2 Derby

    Music to my ears this. You're starting to sound like Wendies with all the" injuries" moaning. What happened to the " best coach in the World", surely he should be able to cope with adversity ?

    Why’ve you put injuries in quotation marks?

    We’ve got injuries.

    I'm guessing you've never ever complained about injuries for Sheffield united before then.
    Also, who exactly has said Bielsa is the best coach in the world because I haven't seen anyone say that on this forum before.

    This story of the spy would be more creditable if a Steve Evans was still our coach.

    Good one that codger. I can't see it missen, I think you'll " do" Derby tonight.

    Former Leeds player on Radio 5 today, saying that of all the front runners he thinks Naarich will fade. He's seen them several times and that they're not looking as équipéd as Leeds, Baggies, Blades. Good to hear that as the Blades have also been described as the weakest of the top six, by Steve Hodge ( ex-Florist))
