Our Prediction:

Leeds will win

Barnsley – Leeds Match Prediction | 16-09-2019 07:30

If you could be granted one thing this season, what would it be?If I could be guaranteed that Cocu would still be managing Derby on the first day of next season then I would take that. For a variety of reasons, we simply havent been able to keep hold of managers in the last few years and we really need one to stick around for a while.

Saying that, its hard to predict how we will do without knowing who will leave if anyone. However, if we keep them all, on paper we should be strong enough to make the playoffs. As we speak, there have been serious interest in Neal Maupay, Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma. If all three leave, it will be a disaster and I will say we will be looking a year another top half finish and a season of rebuilding.

Barnsley opened their Championship campaign with a home win over Fulham, but since then theyve failed to win a match, exiting the Carabao Cup and falling towards danger. They went into this weekend fourth from bottom in the division, leaving the Tykes in need of a victory. However, theres no side youd rather avoid in a must-win clash than Leeds.

The Tykes are eager to avoid relegation to the League One, whilst the Whites are eyeing automatic promotion to the Premier League. Sundays football game at Oakwell Stadium pits together Barnsley and Leeds United, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2019/2020 season. Leeds United missed out on a place in the English top flight last term as they were struggle in the second half of the season, but Marcelo Bielsa is definitely capable of helping the Whites bring glory days back to Elland Road.

What team is going to be win the Ian Holloway trophy and be the surprise packet this season?Its hard to tell as a relegated team coming back into the Championship. I know how competitive the division is, but theres always room for surprise. Truth be told, Im not too sure so Ill just go for Nottingham Forest.

We have lost our two key centre-backs Liam Lindsay to Stoke and Ethan Pinnock to Brentford. This time our owners have certainly showed they dont plan to let that happen again. But we have brought in millions for the pair and the promise was made that cash would be spent back on the first team and that promise has certainly been kept.

However, the managerial appointment of Ranieri was the final nail in the coffin for me. The obvious thing to blame would be recruitment. How would you describe last season for your club?Would rather not talk about it if Im honest. From day one relegation seemed an inevitable prospect. He caused a lot of damage alienating key players (namely Sessegnon and Cairney) and trying to install a system that didnt play to our strengths.

It didnt work out for them in the Premier League especially given their inconsistent defence. Keeping Mitrovic is a huge bonus. Other that your team (of course) what team would you put 100 on for promotion?Fulham. But the signings theyve made are quite telling for their ambitions this season. It pains me to say that. But I think they make a top Championship side.

Scores Vs Opponents

Still under the guidance of world-renowned coach Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds are in the second automatic promotion spot going into the second month of the campaign and the Argentine will be hoping his side can maintain their form for a full season having witnessed his men collapse at the back end of last term and ultimately fail to earn a promotion that looked a certainty at one point.
