Saturday started with more rumours that the potential buyers were to watch the match with Uncle Ken and he kindly mentioned in his notes that 'negotiations were ongoing.'
Neil Warnock gave eight players their league debuts and handed the captain's armband to Lee Peltier, a surprise to many as McCormack, fresh from a scoring appearance with Scotland and signing a new three year deal with the club was favourite to get the nod as skipper.
Leeds started really positive, with a very direct way of playing. Austin went close and there were a few half chances before Paddy Kenny sent a 'Gerrard' of a pass to McCormack who took it on before a slide rule of a pass was met at the far post by a diving Luciano Becchio, who headed the ball past the Wolves keeper and attempted a 'Bolt' celebration. Green was replaced by Diouf at the end of the 1st half and he was greeted by a mixed reception but I cannot understand why anybody wearing a white shirt should not be backed.
In the second half Leeds still played well but Wolves came into the game and had a few chances. We defended well as a team and deserved the win.
Man of the Match. Jason Pearce - Solid as a rock but ran close by Austin and the unpopular Diouf.
A positive way to start the 2012/13 season.
