Terrible: Leeds must drop Vieira and replace him with the much better Forshaw

Leeds United fans here in the Tavern are feeling slightly concerned about the club’s direction, as Paul Heckingbottom continues to struggle at Elland Road. 

Interestingly, the Whites established themselves as promotion contenders towards the start of the current campaign, but this soon fizzled out as the sacking of Thomas Christiansen saw them take a step backwards. Indeed, it’s fair to say that Paul Heckingbottom has looked rather clueless since taking charge, as another managerial change may be in the offing in the summer.

Paul Heckingbottom’s future continues to be surrounded with doubt as he has one game left to prove himself. Indeed, Leeds United will welcome Queens Park Rangers to Elland Road tomorrow in their final Championship fixture, with many of our local residents wanting to see nothing less than a convincing victory.

Although, making the correct decision when it comes to picking the starting lineup will be key, as a number of players struggled to impress last time out. So, Heckingbottom should think about dropping Ronaldo Vieira for tomorrow’s game against QPR, as the youngster was dispossessed too easily in the build up to Norwich’s goal and offered very little going forward.

Therefore, Paul Heckingbottom should look to drop Vieira and gift Adam Forshaw a place in the starting lineup. Here’s who our local punters think should get the nod…

Adam Forshaw

The former Middlesbrough central midfielder was brought to Elland Road during the January transfer window, but he hasn’t really been able to have a positive effect on the club’s results since making the move.

However, there’s no doubt that the Englishman can be a nightmare for any opposition player on his day, as he often steps up to the mark in the big games with his dazzling array of passes and incredible vision.

So, the Whites will be desperate for Forshaw to raise his game against Queens Park Rangers later on today, as he will be sure to iron over any underlying problems in the middle of midfield, having seen his side lose the midfield battle against the Canaries last time out.
