With the usual TSLR crew saving their cash for the play-offs, it was left to me to turn in a few words on an eventful Albion win at Leeds. Elland Road has become a lucky ground for the Albion of late, turning in a draw and a Navarro winner over the last two seasons.
This season was to provide another corker with a good away crowd turning out and in fine voice. The early play was with the Albion inspiring another Buckley goal. The only question on this goal was if Ashley Barnes got the assist or it was a poor Leeds back pass. Closer inspection of the replay showed definite movement towards the ball that showed more intent than the recent Bolton trip showed on the single grainy fan webcam shown all over the interweb. A fine team goal. Barnes was involved again shortly afterwards taking a fine lesson from Spanish Dave in the overacting department forcing a swift red for Austin. This incident seemed to inspire Brian McDermott's side as they began to press the Albion - coming increasingly close to levelling with 'Fat Balotelli' Diouf at the heart of much of Leeds play, running rings around Marcos Painter.
With Leeds disadvantaged again the Albion looked to capitalise and shortly after Vicente uncharacteristically missed a sitter up popped Leo Ulloa to head a bullet into the back of the net sending the crowd into play-off qualifying celebration and booming “WHO’S THAT MAN FROM ARGENTINA…” chants.
