44 games until where?

I prefer to be optimistic than pessimistic when it comes to Leeds United and over the last few weeks and months we haven't had much to shout about, however we are in the most unpredictable league in the world and yet to spread our wings and fly.

Last season was a great learning experience for us as we came so close yet so far from a Play-off spot. Now we shouldn't waste a great chance to kick on from a superb platform generated last term. It's a huge club and our absence from the top flight hopefully won't be extended much longer. It does concern me that with players like Max Gradel and Robert Snodgrass catching the eye of many Premier League clubs it's only a matter of time until they feel they must fulfil their dreams elsewhere.

We face Hull today who like us have come up against two good sides in Blackpool and Ipswich. We enjoyed two quality games against the Tigers last season with them both finishing 2-2. United still without a point this season will have to try to overcome a dangerous Hull side who have their own promotion aspirations this season without Gradel and skipper Jonny Howson after two harsh red cards on Saturday.

Leeds welcome back Andy Keogh to the club who is expected to make his debut tonight. Also Mikael Forssell is training with the club along with other trialists as Simon Grayson looks to bring in more fresh faces to the club.

It will be interesting to see how Grayson approaches this game tactically. Whatever happens whether it be win, lose or draw we will be marching on together through good times and bad.
