Leeds host Ipswich Town today at Elland Road, in what is sure to be a fiery match between the two clubs.

Mick McCarthy was a boyhood Leeds United fan, but he’s said that he is looking to “slap” Leeds this weekend, which doesn’t sound very nice.

Oh, well, if it’s a slap-fest he wants, it’s a slap-fest he’ll get. Or something like that.

McCarthy was also complementary of the job that Christiansen has done so far at Leeds, which was nice.

Anyway, on to the links.
