Re: Felix Wiedwald

Definitely the case that FW is getting much more blame than is fair. Some of the goals he has been blamed for are not due to his mistakes at all but yet he is being pilloried for them. All keepers make mistakes and like you say 99% of their mistakes end up in the back of the net. All keepers have th...

Re: New Training Ground?

Keep what we have is my view , the training ground we have is one of the best in the country , either buy it or re-negotiate a new rental , the players only come to Elland rd on match days anyway , the majority of the players live out Wetherby / Harrogate way as well Trouble is it is a category 2 a...

Re: Monday Breakfast Debate - Dallas/International break ?

Is anyone else relieved that the international break is over Stupid having all these breaks and disrupting the season - why not start the season 2 weeks later and end it 2 weeks earlier and play all the internationals in those weeks. Stuart Dallas - Should he be starting for Leeds? I agree with TC ...

Re: Gianni Alioski

Further to this I watched a Spanish La Liga 2 (the equivalent of our championship) match today (Albacete v Lorca) and the ref blew every time any contact was made. There wasn't a dirty tackle in the match and yet at least 6 players got booked. It is no wonder that players from foreign leagues strugg...

Re: We Should Be Proud Of Our CHAMPIONS

An unbelievable performance especially given the thrashings we have suffered at the hands of Castleford this season. Full credit to BMc and the boys who have taken a lot of over the top criticism over the last couple of years.

Re: Gianni Alioski

Who has written him off ? Fans judge players on performances, he's had a couple of good ones so far with more to come hopefully. Couple of excellent games, couple of quiet games and a few average games - but to hear some comments you would think he was awful. His shot v Forest showed what he is cap...

Re: Gianni Alioski

Same old story from the moronic element of fans supporting this club writing a player off after a handful of appearances. 1) He has never played in this league before and has been kicked from pillar to post with no protection from refs. 2) He has never played with any of our other players prior to t...

Re: Player Profile 2017/18 - Felix Wiedwald

I still think he could have done a lot better for two of the goals Good keepers should command their box & deal in any given situation competently, not the case with Felix who expects his defenders to defend with every ball as he hasn't the confidence to catch a cross, couldn't catch a cold if ...

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

1) we are in the playoffs, this time last season we were nowhere near. Yes last season at this point we had been playing some awful football and any wins had been unconvincing. For me it was the Norwich cup match that really started our season off as the fans suddenly got excited and we then had a d...

Re: Player Profile 2017/18 - Felix Wiedwald

The trouble is that the boo boys, including radio commentators, have already made up their mind and as such every goal conceded is now down to a keeper mistake. Take the first Sheff Wed goal and I was listening to it on radio Leeds and to hear them speak it was as if it was a huge mistake from the k...

Re: What we have we hold

Thats true, that takes us us back to the realization we arent as clinical as our stats suggest, Sunderland and Forest should have been 4-0 not 2-0. That in itself is a worry since its become clear we needs to score first to win, if we dont, as we didnt when we should have against Wednesday then inv...

Re: What we have we hold

The trouble is that if you set up too defensively and have no threat then you will simply end up defending for 90 minutes or conceding anyway and then not really having any threat to get back into the game. Playing with the formation and players we have been picking it gives us a great chance to sco...

Re: Thursday's Breakfast Debate - Ten Games In.....

Ten games in how have we done Delighted with 20 points. A couple of great early performances left us perhaps feeling too excited, leading us to ignore the shortcomings of the drab match v Preston and conceding twice v Bolton. The awful performance v Millwall gave us a reality check and we aren't go...

Re: Cardiff v Leeds - Team,News,Reports & Ratings

I definitely think we need to calm things down. We are 10 matches into the season with a new coach, new way of playing and a lot of new players. We have lost twice and both times it has been to teams that play 'old school' football and use home advantage to get away with a more physical way of playi...

Re: Wednesday's Breakfast Debate - Cardiff Aftermath !

Did Christensen meddle too much with his team selection? I must admit I was a bit shocked by the line up with Saiz and Lasogga rested. That said Lasogga is still not up to match fitness and combined with the travelling and everything with the new baby giving him a rest may have been a sensible opti...

Re: Cardiff v Leeds - Team,News,Reports & Ratings

It does worry me how reliant we are on Pontus at the back, last season we weren't we had Bartley as well who looked as comfortable without Pontus as he did with Pontus after Pontus signed. If Pontus doesn't play tomorrow I think we will concede at least once sadly, it will play right into Warnock's...

Re: Cardiff v Leeds - Team,News,Reports & Ratings

The key is not to over react to one bad performance and throw the baby out with the bathwater. Everyone (including PJ who made a mistake in the goal) had an off day v Millwall and whilst it was definitely worrying it didn't negate how positive the rest of the season has been. Obviously if one nightm...

Re: Cardiff v Leeds - Team,News,Reports & Ratings

How much work did the likes of David Platt or Frank Lampard do in midfield compared to KP? They made a living about being midfielders in name only but because they would score over 10 goals a season they were priceless for their clubs. Last season our biggest problem was that apart from Chris Wood n...
