With West Bromwich Albion being on a run of four without a win and our significant defensive problems once again rearing their head as we fell to defeat to Hull City, a number of fans are worried about what the Leeds United game may bring.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side have been wasteful in attack given their control and possession in matches but they are once again top of the table. West Brom’s current form speaks for itself and we’ve now dropped out of the Play-Off spots and a good portion of the fanbase fear we’ll never get back in them unless major changes are made to our setup.
Five points separate both sides as we go into the game at the weekend, but given relative form I can certainly see why some fans are fearful about this one.
Dreading it tbh

Leeds won at Wigan but according to the Darren Moore fans it’s a hard place to go. #wba

Leeds playing it out from the back. Everybody working hard for each other & making themselves available. Close short passing. Albion players don’t help each other. They just blankly watch our defenders struggle and they eventually unsurprisingly give the ball away. #wba #lufc

Nope, it will take a bit longer, think fans will direct tensions to the board if anything. More likely there will be a few boos and a half empty stadium. Tbh I think fans are all a bit numb by it all and don’t know who to blame.

worrying times at Albion, Results earlier in the season papered over the cracks. Hope the slump doesn't turn into a rot but have Leeds next weekend and think they'll batter us. #WBA

64 years a fan, close to giving it up altogether. Get it together quickly Albion, or i shall not be renewing next season. We should easily beat these teams, God help us next week against Leeds.#WBA

We’ll have to show massive improvement at the back given the way they seem to attack and play the ball around.
