    Millwall v Leeds Utd
    Saturday 5th October 2019 15.00 | The Den


    Leeds travel down to Bermondsey on Saturday afternoon for their annual grudge match against the Lions without skipper Liam Cooper, Jamie Shackleton, Pablo Hernandez and Adam Forshaw.

    Leeds will be brimming with confidence having got back to winning ways against the Baggies on Tuesday evening which saw the West Yorkshire outfit propelled back to the top of the Championship, and although Swansea have retaken the top perch, Leeds remain firm favourites to take three points away from Bermondsey.

    Millwall are four places from safety in 18th place on 11 points. They have only lost three times this season, only one more than Leeds, but have drawn five.

    Discounting the own goals against West Brom and Derby, Leeds have not scored since their 2-0 win at Barnsley earlier this month.

    Why have the goals dried up?

    Apart from the injuries, will Bielsa make big changes this Saturday?

    Will Lewisham born Nketiah start? Will he get any game time? Why was he completely left out of both the U23 squad on Monday and Tuesdays top of the table clash?

    With three of our midfielders missing, how would you rearrange the team?

    As Dallas got the armband off Cooper he must be well and truly a big part of Bielsa's plan, whether that be at right back or now Aylings fit and we are a little light in midfield, he moves up there, we'll have to wait and see.

    Stuart has been brilliant under Bielsa, he's like a new signing

    We haven't got a problem on the right flank unlike the left-side

    Ayling at RB & Dallas at LB imo!

    Hope Marcelo doesn't stick Dallas in the midfield, wouldn't be surprise if he does though

    Wouldn't surprise me either but I like you would prefer Ayling right and Dallas left.

    Will be interesting as Bielsa doesn’t like to change too much. Goals have dried up as Bamford isn’t, and never has been, prolific and the rest of the team’s shooting has been woeful. Most annoying is the wallies maybe back if our London form continues.

    Bamford instead of Shackleton and Eddie up front.

    That's what I'd like to see or Ayling in at RB and Dallas pushed forward with Costa in Shackletons place but further forward a proper number 10

    Dallas has been superb at RB but push him into midfield? No thanks.

    It’ll be same starting eleven except for Berardi in for Cooper and Gotts in for Shackleton.

    I thought Gotts might be an option, but apparently not ...

    The Argentine is minded to go with one of those two options again at the Den.

    “Probably we’re going to play Ayling instead of Dallas and Dallas instead of Shackleton, or [Mateusz] Klich for Shackleton and Roberts in place of Klich,” said Bielsa.

    I must admit, with the injuries it would seem to be the ideal time to see Nketiah and Bamford both up front maybe one in the number 10 position but if Bielsa is willing to move Dallas central or play Roberts ahead of Nketiah it seems Bielsa only sees Nketiah as a straight replacement for Bamford.

    Always a bit of an adventure going to the den. Was there two years ago, broke my leg a few days before, managed to get someone to push me around in a wheelchair. Even had peaky blinders lookalikes helping me on and off the train, virtually had VIP treatment in the ground. Was a good day all round. Totally changed my opinion about Millwall.

    Was actually a stag weekend, had already paid for trains, hotel and match ticket. Didn't see much of the stag do as it was her indoors that was doing the pushing. LOL.

    Fans were booing a lot at Luton last night, don't think they realise how well Harris has done to keep a **** team in the championship.

    Thought he might be aiming higher than that but could make sense. I think he lives in Essex. His son plays for Thurrock.
