Injured Chris Wood and the form of Rob Green are proving talking points among the Elland Road faithful.

If Chris Wood cannot play against Reading [following the knock he sustained playing in New Zealand’s 2-0 victory over Fiji on Saturday] then we need a striker who will take advantage of what are likely to be limited opportunities.

I think that is more likely to be Marcus Antonsson than Souleymane Doukara.

However I also think that a place should be found for Doukara if that happens. Doukara is a strong runner with the ball as the penalty against Brighton showed but also he offers more support to the main striker and gives the option of a second striker without using a sub.

Without Wood and against Reading playing Doukara and Antonsson could be a good option.

We’ll win, with or without Wood

Calm down, with or without Chris Wood, we can beat any team in the league including Newcastle.

Winning the last eight games is needed for automatic promotion, but don’t worry we can beat Sheffield Wednesday or Reading in two games and Huddersfield or Fulham in a one-off final for sure. Keep calm and we are going up.

Injury is nothing to worry about

CHris Wood’s injury sounds like nothing too serious. As long as he is fit to score the winner in the play-off final its nothing to worry about!

Star striker is a transfer target?

I live in New Zealand and it was on the news tonight that Everton are going to sign Chris Wood in the summer for 15 million pounds. He’ll be gone if we don’t go up.

Wood’s sure to keep the faith

Keep the faith Kiwiwhite.

Chris Wood will not want to jump ship from his current “newly promoted” side to join a club who are searching for a new manager because Ronald Koeman has become Barcelona’s new manager.

How’s that for a bit of “speculation”?

Every genuine Leeds United fan knows that Chris is the player of the season, our “young developing group” are the team of the season and that Garry Monk is the manager of the season! We don’t care what anybody else thinks, it’s obvious that we are simply the best.

ROB Green has done well this season, despite earlier hiccups along the way especially against Newcastle at home. The guy is 37 and has nothing to lose at this stage of his career.

Add to the fact that he basically has no competition whatsoever other than Marco Silvestri, who has proved on countless occasions that he will play out of his skin one week, before making a succession of blunders which costs the team valuable points.

Unfortunately I do not think Green will be emulating Mervyn Day – another goalkeeeper who played for Leeds well into his thirties who picked up a promotion winning medal along the way.

Don’t let’s forget that Rob Green is an ex-international and as always had good/brilliant saves in his bag.Unfortunately like all good keepers that we have had, Sprake, Harvey, Lukic, Martin, Robinson – the list goes on –they have all had mistakes in them. But if you can minimise the faults then the mistakes can be forgiven. I think he’s saved more points then he’s cost us.

CANDIDATE: Norwich City striker Nelson Oliveira, left, could fit the bill to replace Chris Wood.
