Brazil, McCoist and Bent star for Leeds in talkSPORT special as Whites hammer Bristol City 4-1
With all UK football suspended until the end of April at the earliest, Leeds United fans are looking for entertainment from other places at the moment.
And talkSPORT gave us a brilliant diversion this morning as they recreated the opening game of the 19/20 Championship season between Leeds and Bristol City.
It was a slightly different line-up, with talkSPORT luminaries taking the place of the Leeds players.
Alan Brazil and Ally McCoist played up front as Marcelo Bielsa opted to play a front two instead of his normal 4-1-4-1.
And that paid dividends as Brazil got a hat-trick, with former Spurs star Jamie O’Hara getting the other.
The defence of Jason Cundy, Paul Hawksbee, Adrian Durham and Andy Goldstein made up what Sam Matterface called an “immobile back four” but they held out until the dying minutes before conceding.
Tony Cascarino was an unused sub.
To pass the time, we created a FIFA 20 team filled with talkSPORT stars 👀
The sight of Brazil galloping into the box is quite something 😳

The commentary from Sam Matterface is hilarious with Brazil taking most of the stick – “Alan Brazil is finishing off chances like he finishes off bottles of wine, one after the other he is sinking them”.
Bristol City fans won’t enjoy it quite so much after as Matterface says they’re “Getting embarrassed on the opening day of the season”.
The actual score back in August at Ashton Gate was 3-1 so the talkSPORT simulation wasn’t far off.
And there have been occasions this season when the Leeds fans would probably have taken Alan Brazil and Ally McCoist up front.
More of this please talkSPORT!
