Keith Ingham spoke to friend and Wendies fan Lee Siddons ahead of Leeds' crucial 12:30 kick off tomorrow.
How long have you followed the blue and white stripes?
Followed Weds since the 78/79 season when we had the marathon 3rd round FA cup tie against Arsenal. Not being a Sheffield born lad (although all my family are from Sheffield) up to that point in my life i'd (hate to admit it!) been a glory supporter following Liverpool. It was the five matches against Arsenal (us then of Div 3 and Arsenal Div1) that made me recognise my roots and hence start following the Owls.
Who is the best player you've seen play for the 'Owls'?
Best player - probably between Chris Waddle and Paolo di Canio, Although Hirsty deserves an honorable mention!
What was the first game you watched vs Leeds?
First game v Leeds - really cant remember this but most memorable obviously for me is the 6-0 hammering we gave you in jan 2014 wiping
out 22 years of hurt from the 6-1 you gave us!
Who are the key members of your squad in 2016/17?
Key members of the squad - ask me 5 days ago i would've said Forestierii but with his future uncertain now i would say Westwood in
the sticks (best keeper outside of the Premier League imo), Tom Lees, Fletcher in his first season with us & if not Fessi then Almen Abdi for the creative influence.
Your hopes for this season, would the Playoffs be enough to satisfy your new owners?
Hopes- obviously to go one step further than last year but I must say I think the division looks harder this season. Think the owners are
wanting the same as they said they were wanting promotion within three years and this is the 3rd season (granted the first was only part way through when he bought the club).
Who are your Champions, Runners up and Playoff places?
Runners Up - Us
Playoffs - Newcastle, Brighton,Bristol City & QPR
Who are your three favourites for Relegation?
Relegation - Burton, Rotherham & Preston
We know the rivalry between the clubs, is it 'banter' or hatred?
Banter - the only hatred we have is for the Blades.
Player in the Championship you'd love in your line up?
Don't know who i'd like from the Championship but do feel we need another strong central defender with pace to cover if Lees/Loovens are injured (which in loovens place is quite regular).
What's your prediction for Saturday's game?
Score - 2-0 Weds with Fletcher and Abdi scoring.
We'd like to thank Lee for answering our questions and wish him luck for the owls mid-table finish this season!
