With a weekend of Internationals lined up, Leeds United, and their fans find themselves with another free weekend and news around the club is slow at the moment, with a Katy Perry tribute act even making the headlines with an appearance due at Elland Road - that's right, a tribute act.
We're sure she's very good and all that, but the fact she made the official site is indicative of the lack of news around the club at the moment, so we'll try and bring you all of the updates in one short blog, so you can get on with planning your Leeds free weekend in peace.
Ross McCormack has linked up with the Scotland Squad following the withdrawal of Jordan Rhodes. The Blackburn striker turned his ankle in training, creating the opportunity for McCormack to join the squad, although his exclusion was a suprise in the first place!
And there you have it! That was the news.
The lack of news and games, whilst frustrating for fans is something to be celebrated though. No news stories about possible transfer targets needed to avoid relegation, no headlines about a chairman insulting some official body, no media coverage of pending financial collapse.
It may be boring, but it's a damn damn sight better than the news that used to come out in our recent history. So sit back, enjoy your weekend and relax. All is good at Elland Road.
Oh and there is a Katy Perry tribute act at Elland Road from 1:45pm before the Middlesborough game!
Leeds boss, Brian McDermott will have a number of choices to make against Charlton Athletic at the weekend, some forced but others optional.
Sam Byram missed the Yeovil game last week with a thigh injury, but despite returning the training, McDermott is unlikely to risk the youngster by pushing him straight back into action. In addition, Stephen Warnock picked up an injury in the last game, and with Aidy White completing still out of loan, a start for Danny Pugh or Adam Drury is likely.
At the back, new signing Marius Zaliukas could push for a start depending on what McDermott has seen in training this week and up front, loanee Blackstock could push Matt Smith out of the starting eleven. The centre forward was superb against Birmingham City a couple of games ago but has not been as prominent since.
Charlton meanwhile are unbeaten in five games, despite their lowly position in the table (17th). They secured a 1-0 victory over Birmingham last week, to complete a good run of two victories and three draws since a poor start to the season.
Leeds meanwhile are struggling on the road this season, not picking up any league points since August when they beat Ipswich 2-1, although Charltons home form is hardly impressive.
We predict a 0-0 draw with neither side taking control of the game.

Wayward wingers, Ryan Hall has returned to the club following his suspension for remarks made on Twitter.
The 25 year old was suspended a fortnight ago after returning from a loan period with Sheffield United. It is understood the disciplinary action was taken when Hall posted several inappropriate Tweets on the popular Social network site.
One remark being investigated was “Look on the bright side if you’re not getting played take the L out and get payed.”
Disciplinary action is still ongoing, but Leeds United could only suspend the player for a maximum of two weeks under his contract.
