It’s a huge game on Sunday. We know it. The whole of Leeds know it. And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows it.
We don’t even mind him throwing a cheeky dig our way after he acknowledged how “massive” the game is.
Talking after the win against Sheffield United last night he said, “Sunday [against Leeds] is a massive game, we have been waiting for years and we will be ready for it.”
Hmm. That’s fighting talk and we think that Leeds will have enough to make him eat his words come Sunday evening.
That’s not just our view, though, but the views of a fair few Man United fans as well, given their home form at the moment.
Some United fans think that their side is far from ready for anyone at home at the moment, let alone Leeds.
In terms of away form, United are top of the table with six wins from six. Just taking into account games at Old Trafford, however, the picture is very different.
They’re 17th, with just one win from six games and a -7 goal difference.
One United fan responded to Solskjaer’s words saying, “Given that our home form is like Sheffield United I think we will lose against Leeds.”
Another said, “Home game, advantage Leeds I’m afraid.”
Can Leeds heap more misery on United on Sunday?
It’s not just Leeds fans who think they can…
Defeat guaranteed. Tats the pattern.

This team hasn't been ready for any game for 7 years. Sleep walk into every single one then turn it on for 20 to 30 minutes when it suits them.

Lool…we are never ready but if they score first we might be.
