burnley-turf-moorIt would take an incredible degree of delusion to believe this Leeds United side can win tomorrow’s encounter at high-flying, in-form Burnley and if you’re looking for blind faith, you’re all out of luck here.

The fat lady has finished her swansong and The Whites have nothing left to play for. Had the first half of the season not resulted in enough points to rule out the likelihood of a relegation battle, we’d at least have something to play for, but as things are, Leeds United have eleven games to go through the motions as we wait for summer to come along and pray that this time, things will be different.

I’d argue that we can expect a response after the 4-2 home defeat on Tuesday, but that game was supposed to be a response to the 5-1 defeat at the weekend. This team lacks fight, passion and quality, our league position is more a reflection of their character and performance than it is the takeover attempt by Massimo Cellino.

2 wins in 15 games, one of which came after the sacking of our manager tells you everything you need to know about the Whites bounceback-ability, but if you’re inclined to throw good money away betting on three-legged rocking horses, the odds on Leeds winning will be astronomical and you can use this link to bet with a Unibet bonus code, which will at least negate the inevitable loss.

As team news goes, Leeds United’s is terrible, unworthy and should all be replaced by a random XI supporters drawn at random from the crowd. Jimmy Kebe is “too ill” to travel, which I think is code for “cowering in a corner” so that’s something, at least.

Burnley’s Kieran Trippier meanwhile is boasting about the squads great health after picking up huge amounts of points from a congested fixture schedule, in no small part thanks to the impressive goalscoring duo of Sam Vokes and Danny Ings.

So while Leeds have leaked nine goals in the last two fixtures, both on home soil, Burnley boast one of the Championship’s deadliest strikeforces. Anyone predicting a Whites clean-sheet should probably head to the nearest psychiatric hospital and commit themselves now.

If this was any other Leeds United side I’d fancy our chances as extreme underdogs, but there’s more fight in a frozen chicken than our current ensemble, which leaves no room for optimistic outlooks.

Can we end the season now, please? On and on…
