One is tempted to bill today's game with Leeds as a clash of the Championship Titans but from the perspective of the Yorkshire club, it is more of a whipping boy contest. When Leeds come to town, West Ham players drop their shorts and bend over!
Get a load of these frightening stats!
We haven't won any of the last SEVEN encounters.
We have only won ONE of the last TWELVE.
We have only won THREE in the last TWENTY SIX games between the clubs!
The glory days of the Revie era are a dim and distant memory but for West Ham, Leeds remain the ultimate Bastard United. I would love it, really love it, if we were to beat the team I loathe above all others but history tells us that the clever money will be on Leeds to leave Upton Park with one point at the very least.
Let's hope Sam Pot has dispensed with history and declared Year Zero!
