Struggling Leeds United entertain high flying 'Boro on Monday. Could this be the occasion when they take advantage of a team who are wobbling mid season and have failed to win in four games?
Middlesbrough have managed an astonishing two points out of a possible twelve and yet still went top of the table last week but after todays results they sit second behind Hull with a two point deficit and the chasing pack quickly making up ground. If they are going to maintain their push for promotion then you feel that this is a game they must win.
The problems for Leeds stem back to David O'Leary and his misguided attempt to spend on the basis that they would guarantee Champions league football. Since that failure successive Leeds managers have come and gone and Leeds fans are currently campaigning with a "time to go" to get the current owner removed from his position.
The Time To Go Massimo campaign is funded by fans who have grown disillusioned at the way Cellino has run the club following his takeover from previous owner Gulf Finance House in early 2014.
His tenure at Leeds has been overshadowed by an endless chain of controversies and sacked managers.
Cellino served a Football League ban last year for tax evasion in Italy and is currently appealing against a second disqualification having been found guilty of similar offences.
Whatever happened to the "fit for purpose" rules that were supposed to safeguard against dodgy characters and publicity self seekers taking over our clubs?
Leeds Manager Steve Evans has his hands full and a lack of experience is not helping him. There was a time when Cantona used to play for them and they were a force to be reckoned with in the top division. The days of Bremner, Gray et al are sadly long gone.
Given Middlesbrough's poor form and the massive odds of 71/100 for a home win or draw I'm going for exactly that. The odds are too good to ignore.
The Bet: I'm putting my faith in Leeds to win or draw this game.
