A WELCOME WIN at WATFORD WOULD be WONDERFUL. WOT, WOT !!
Predictions and comments please.
For me : 0-0 half time... 0- 2 full time, to us of course!
Formation 4,5,1. That's the way to do it. Suck them in and hit them on the break.
Wishing and hoping we play the wide men in their preferred slots.
MOT as always, onwards and upwards keeps Simon in the job he deserves. For he is Leeds.

Tom heart says 2-1 Leeds,head says 2-2
Probably 4-5-1 formation,we should be high on confidence and away from Elland Road we seem to play with less pressure M.O.T towards another win :)

This is a prediction from a Watford fan:
"Leeds’ attacking force is going to be a good test for our new look defence, but I fear our struggle for goals up front could be our undoing. I may be a bit pessimistic here, but I think a repeat of last season is on the cards. Watford 0 Leeds 1."
I'll be happy with that!

No matter what formation we play Andrew, other managers counter it if we play it that often, but as in any game play the manager has to have the ability to then counter the other teams formation if nothing is happening. Whether Johnny boy would of made a difference I doubt it as we have all seen he can't play in a 4-4-2 why I don't know? As for Ross, again you have to change how you play yes you can pick him but to make an impact he might have to adapt a bit, and all top players should be able to do that and not be a one trick pony. And if hoof ball is not working then adapt to another style with a different formation, formations can be changed to and fro in a match to soak up pressure etc but thats all in a days work for a good manager.

Some interesting points made on formations Andy. I think with the current match day squad we have, or the ones Simon chooses to go with, we have little choice but to adopt either 451, or 442 depending on who we play and where we play. The lack of ability of individual players to adapt to change during match play often hinders formation flexibility. A flat back 4 offers safety, so flexibility therefore must come from the midfield upwards. Hence 451 can easily convert to 442 and vice versa. Our Spine needs to be stronger and more creative (no surprise there ) that will only happen if old Ebenezer releases his purse strings or he trades on one of our more prominent players currently under scrutiny. I hope its not the latter.

A lot of alliteration already, Tom!
What line-up do we think Simon will go with? Watford is likely to play 4-4-2. For us, 4-2-3-1 is probably our best formation. I would suggest this team selection:
Connolly, O’Dea, Lees, White;
Sam, McCormack, Snodgrass;
Subs: Lonergan, Kisnorbo, Vayrynen, Keogh, Nunez
Snoddy and Connolly have an established partnership on the right but Snoddy is a left-footed player and Sam, our other winger is right-footed. I’d swap them over so they play in their natural positions, hoping that Connolly can link with Sam and, with Snoddy on the left, the overlapping interplay between White and Pugh is not interrupted.

that formation looks good to me Andy.
I am no good with predictions, but Watford seem to have picked up their game recently and although I would not be unhappy with a draw I feel a win is a must at the moment.
We look to have a very hard end of season fixture list and I feel a good run from now to the new year is essential if we are to achieve anything this year.
The defense is still looking a little frail, but if they can keep it tight 1-0 to the whites could be a great result. MOT
