Lots of Leeds United fans have been discussing what is to come for Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites in the Elland Road outfit’s next six Championship fixtures.
United have 14 games remaining in our second-tier season as we strive to secure promotion into the Premier League, but only one of our remaining fixtures sees the club face another side currently vying for a top-flight berth.
Bielsa’s men have sometimes struggled to string out favourable results when facing sides lower down in the standings, having lost to mid-table Millwall and Queens Park Rangers plus the relegation-threatened Wigan Athletic and Charlton Athletic already this season.
Our upcoming schedule sees the Whites face two sides fighting the threat of relegation into League One in the form of Wednesday night’s trip to Middlesbrough and our clash with 23rd-placed Luton Town, coming a week after we host likely automatic promotion rivals Fulham at Elland Road.
We also have a trip to 17th-placed Hull City to come at the weekend, before hosting Huddersfield Town and travelling to Cardiff City – the side who caused us many issues in December by coming back from 3-0 down to draw 3-3.
How many points will we take over the next six games?
The Bluebirds result sparked the downturn in our form, having begun the game on the back of seven successive league wins to taking just four victories in the following 12 fixtures.
Another run like that would almost certainly spell the end to our hopes of automatic promotion into the Premier League, and perhaps see United even fall out of the Play-Off places.
Here are some of the messages shared as fans discussed what is to come for Bielsa’s Whites in our next six Championship fixtures…
Draw every match and then beat Luton.
So 8 points.
If we turn a couple of those draws into wins, the resulting 12 points would be great.
Not conceding is key at this stage.
Its always going to be a struggle to score, and no doubt this will continue.
Whether it’s enough?? https://t.co/XMLTfxFQze

Honestly can see us getting 18 no special teams in there at all and Fulham are nothing special we’re a better footballing side then all these I can see 18

Part of me is thinking we dominate them all and come away with 16 after a high scoring draw with Fulham. The other part is me thinks we’ll scrape 6 draws lmao. What a club #lufc https://t.co/5F3HBReN4z

If we bring our ‘A’ game we should get 13. Not so fussed on ‘B’ and ‘C’!

I see it as If we just stay in the top two for the next 6 games we go and get promoted. If we are overtaken before Luton then we don’t get back up. https://t.co/yYcYIKqeFS

I would expect 12/14 that would be great form and would leave us better off than we are now against the chasing pack you would imagine!
Especially if we beat Fulham in that

Aim for 12, anything more will be a bonus. Average of 2 points per game from this point will get us top 2 in my opinion 🤞🏻

Got to be looking at 13 minimum then 11 from last 6 will be enough I think https://t.co/y4a2D7QUtd

If we can take the chances we create we’ll win them all. Not that simple though. We need to, and should, win our home games. The rest will be a bonus. 16 pts.
