Since the days of Don Revie and Brian Clough, Leeds United v Nottingham Forest has always been a noteworthy fixture on the Football League calendar, and following two incredible games last season which produced 14 goals and ended 7-7 on aggregate, the latest meeting of these two former giants promises to be no exception.

Leeds’ 4-0 victory at The City Ground will be remembered for the deafening chants for Gary Speed – from both sets of fans – as much as the impressive scoreline, whilst the 3-7 defeat at Elland Road perfectly summed up a season of defensive insanity, incredible inconsistency and “I don’t know whether to laugh or cry!” football.

This time around, Leeds United are plagued by injuries and have yet to secure reinforcements but Warnock insists there’ll be no repeat of last seasons horrorshow.

As usual, Kick-Off has provided The Scratching Shed with an exclusive statistical preview ahead of the game which you can see below. Tim has also taken part in a Q&A for Nottingham Forest site Seat Pitch which you can read here.

    lets draft Rachubka back in, maybe we can make it 3-8

    • Matthew

      If we had Rachubka in goal for that 3-7 game, it’d be more like 3-14 lol.

    I can see Leeds losing 10-0 with Bates in the ground and a hostile crowd.

  • Yorksh1rian

    i) What if the 20 odd percent minority holding is in Bates’ family ?

    ii) If these new investors are going to keep lurking in the shadows, why would we want them ? What have they done to suggest they wont rape a super casino license, hotel panning permission, shopping plaza plan or other development that proper football owners wouldn’t also love ?

    iii) Where is my LUST money going ?

    iv) Why does old fat Steptoe feel the need to stay involved ? Whats the fiddle ?

    v) What the hell does Mad Max think we’re going to buy him with exactly ?

    vi) Why do 40% of respondants think it would be okay for the chairman to stay on, and on (consultant) wages indeed ?

    vii) Why headline ‘new investor’ and then utterly fail to either reference a source, or in any sense corroborate that ?

    viii) Who passed this ‘fit and proper measure test ? I mean who ? by name, who ? who ?
    ix) Why do comments appear on these forums castigating people for their dissatisfaction; and how long does it take an office junior to make a few hotmail accounts and do what his or her boss tells them ?

    x) Tell me again who introduced these investors, and why do you know sod all about them all of a sudden ?

    I have absolutely no reason to believe we will win this game.
