Enough has been written about the changes. When Leeds kicked the last ball of the previous season, there was a different manager, different players and a different feel about the club. Now, with Cellino firmly in charge, Hockaday in as coach, players left including the influential Ross McCormack and a host of new arrivals, the place feels very different! How? We're not quite sure yet!
Preseason hasn't taught us much. The talk has been largely around the ability of the opposition than it has around the performance of the squad. A fast flowing, passing team came out against Dundee but how much of a test that was, and how much that compares to a Millwall team about to compete in a competitive game remains to be seen.
Leeds have new faces to select from. Tommaso Bianchi, Marco Silvestri, Gaetano Berardi, Souleymane Doukara and Nicky Ajose have all arrived at Elland Road, but Bianchi is suspended after it was confirmed he must serve out a ban he incurred in the final game of last season. One face that won't be joining is Frederik Sorensen. The defender was all but announced last week but last minute problems led to the deal being declared off by Cellino, unless it is a final negotiation bluff from the Italian owner.
Leeds are understaffed at the back. Tom Lees departed a week ago, leaving just Jason Pearce and Scott Wootton as recognised central defenders. Elsewhere Aidy White is out (Ankle) but Steve Morrison, who won over some of the fans for his performance against Dundee last week is likely to start.
Millwall are likely to give Ricardo Fuller is his debut after joining from Blackpool over the summer.
It will be Hockadays first competitive match in charge of the Whites, and whilst there has been huge concerns around his appointment, the Leeds faithful will support anyone that is part of the team. It should be noted though that the fans will be less tolerant than normal if the performance isn't up to the expected standard. A poor start will see the fans on his back from the start of the season and he will face an uphill battle to win over the trust of the supporters.
Starting line up for Leeds, we have no idea! Predicted score, no idea again (although our blind passion will go for a 3-1 win for Leeds) - but it's going to be a very interesting start to what we expect to be a very interesting season!
