We should beat 'em OK. I reckon we'll see Lynch in for Hall, Furlong for Cousins, Cameron for Scowen and Eze instead of Hemed.

We'll be fine.

SMc needs to make sure the team have fire fire in their bellies from the first whistle to the last.

A draw would be a good result, but I think if we are fired up, we will win.

They have won 2 of their last 14 (we have won 3 of ours), so, we just have the edge on the form guide.
A draw would be a terrible result.
Not good, but hardly "terrible". You said yourself in the opening post of this thread that a draw would help.

To be honest, a draw at home against Rotherham would be a pretty poor result. We won't go down but if we can't beat Rotherham at home with the form they are in...!

Of course it would be a terrible result: after the run we have had we need a win at home against another team in poor form below us in the table. A draw would help confirm we don't get relegated but the fans need something to get excited about.

I think maybe the apathy and resignation from a lot of the supporters to our situation is rubbing off on the players - and that's not a criticism of our long-suffering supporters, who are some of the best in football. We all need to stop using our current situation as an excuse for second rate performances though (more Leeds performances please).Leave everything out in the pitch, do your best to improve, and we can ask for no more. The whole club just seems resigned to it's fate to me, and is treading water before the inevitable. We've turned around bad situations in the past...why not now. It will take time and a huge effort, but we have to try and get some self-belief back in the club. Rotherham would be a good start. Let's not do an Ipswich next season... and confound everyone 8)

No you win: a thrilling 0-0 draw against the mighty Rotherham will raise the moral and spirits of players and fans alike and set us up for the much easier games we have for the rest of the season.

Was Furlong dropped for a specific reason, do we know?

IKR It's like the days of sackcloth and ashes, accompanied by self flagellation never went away. BTW Geoff Cameron is available on Wednesday for selection.
Complacency is a bad thing.

Still: you hang around the ground to talk to the players so you must know better than everyone else. :roll:
I'm in pretty much the same spot before every game so of course some of the players know who I am and don't mind chatting. FYI, I also ended up coaching in the Fan Zone yesterday for around 20 mins whilst the guy went for a leak and bit of nosebag :lol: What does that make me?
Which definition of nosebag are we using here?

To keep on topic; we need 64 points to be mathematically safe at the moment. :D

Rotherham haven't won a Championship away game for 43 matches: surely SMc will instruct the team to start the game positively and attack the opposition from the off for once. Hopefully Cameron will be back and would love to see BOS starting on the left instead of Hemed with Freeman in the centre but I doubt this will happen.

If you hadn't won away in 43 matches, who would be your choice to play?

It's so flipping predictable.
