Ask a fan: Leeds edition

Tonight we face a tough challenge when we come up against one of the favourites for promotion - Leeds United.

We got in touch with the editor of Vital Leeds to see what we can expect from the Yorkshire outfit, aswell as his predictions:

1. What's your User name? - dazza71



2. How long have you been supporting Leeds? - Was brought up on the great Leeds team of the early 70`s


3. Who is your favourite ever Leeds player? - Billy Bremner



4. Who's your star player to look out for? - Jermaine Beckford, scored 34 goals last season and he`s already got two in two this term.



5. How do you think you will do in the coming season? - Automatic promotion


6. Favourite and worse football grounds visited - I completed all 92 in 1997, the old Villa Park was always my favourite. The huge terraced Holte end and the old main stand, it had a certain tradition. Worst ground is hard to say with so many grounds having changed so much over the years since I last visited them. Newport County, Halifax Town and Crewe Alexandra are amongst the worst at the time I visited them.




7.Have you ever visited the - formerly known as - Bescot Stadium? - I have been to the Bescot twice, also went to your old ground Fellows Park. That also must rank highly as one of the worst (sorry), got to be the narrowest entrance to a turnstile I have ever been through! It also lashed it down on the day I went, mid December, on an open terrace behind the goal. Thank god Leeds won 3-0.




8. And finally....what's going to be the result on Tuesday? - You have done well against us at your place in the past two seasons but we are a different proposition now and I think Leeds will win 2-0.



Thanks to Dazza71 at Vital Leeds for answering our questions, but we hope his prediction is the otherway round.

Also, we agree with the worst grounds!
