Re: Leeds Expected Goals

Excellent again Cjay and I think the only game where it was a 'wonder' strike or fluke was the Sheff Wed game. Apart from that a huge reason we conceded more than we should was keeper error - and that isn't me having a go at BPF as he shouldn't have been thrust straight in so was bound to make mista...

Re: Championship 18/19

I went spying on a Derby training session and stood in the middle of the goal the Derby strikers were using - nobody spotted me.

Re: Leeds Utd v Bolton Wanderers Match Thread

Revie's teams often scored more than two goals against the elite too ! in 4 of the 9 matches we have had against the top 7 teams we have won by 2 or more goals. When you consider that 2 of the other 5 matches saw Boro parking the bus it shows that our problem has more been because of teams simply p...

Re: Alioski or Douglas ?

Given that Clarke is out indefinitely and that we didn't sign James then the logical option is to move Alioski back into a winger position allowing Bielsa to rotate a bit with Harrison and Pablo (also gives the option of Pablo at no.10). Douglas then slots straight back into left wing back.

Re: Leeds Utd v Bolton Wanderers Match Thread

Other teams have parked the bus against us but even then we have had a decent amount of shots against them and have still only failed to score in 2 matches. Parking the bus simply invites pressure on and 90 minutes is a long time to survive against non stop pressure. The key is to create better chan...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thur 21st Feb)

Leeds have launched a new crest for next season only to celebrate Leeds Utd's 100th Birthday! (October) The badge is not dissimilar to our present one. It looks like Messrs Radrizzani and Kinnear learned the hard way not to mess around with our crest too much after creating mayhem last season with ...

Re: John Motson gaffe?

In those terms it is offensive however the difference is that Motson didn't use it in a derogatory or offensive way. Just the same as the Black Awards is not handing out awards to insult the recipients.

I've already said twice it's nothing to do with being offended, and I explained my reasoning.
Oh good you aren't offended - just like the majority of 'black' people who weren't offended either.

Re: Elland Road Podcast

It may be that because of the injury setback he isn't as far along the comeback road as MB would have liked, i.e. doesn't think he will be strong enough to play a part. However MB has continually stated that he wanted Brown to play 6 to 8 matches before he'd consider him for the first team and this ...

Re: John Motson gaffe?

So no actual experience of 'experiencing racism?'

Just being offended on behalf of those who have but that don't seem bothered by this. Maybe you should contact Brian (Deane) and tell him why he should be offended.

Re: Championship 18/19 - QPR v West Brom tonight

Thats it really. But in the end that could very well be what costs us promotion. There is nothing Bielsa can do about that, there is no reason to expect the same players to suddenly become clinical, thats down to individual quality that no amount of coaching is going to help, they either can do it ...

Re: John Motson gaffe?

I'm white, I was brought up in the 60s and 70s. Sorry to go on at length, but I think it's an important issue, and it's difficult to explain the problem of racism to people who don't see it because haven't experienced it. Good to have a white person who hasn't experienced racism explain this to all...

Re: Championship 18/19 - QPR v West Brom tonight

Par for the course where Leeds are concerned I did warn everyone not to get too excited about the January Window. We still can achieve a automatic place but my god we don't half make things difficult for ourselves. The biggest criteria in the window was an upgrade at keeper and Kiko looks to be tha...

Re: Championship 18/19 - QPR v West Brom tonight

Tbh if we could be a bit more clinical and had a fully fit squad i think we could comfortably reach 90 points. But i was being optimistic with my predictions, i dont think we have that sort of form in us anymore unfortunately. Do worry the lack of depth and clinical nature will cost us, you cant wi...

Re: Fat Frank To Chelsea?

Lampard has done none of that, no experience to speak off whatsoever aside from this season, dont think he even coached at a youth level. Id be surprised if Chelsea did it. i think a lot of chairman underestimate the role of the manager thinking that any ex player can simply walk into the job and d...

Re: John Motson gaffe?

The thing is it is simply a descriptive word - black. By making it wrong it is like saying being called black is offensive and as such being black is in some way making someone inferior. There was nothing in the sentence to make anything offensive ie Motson didn't say he's a big black c*nt. It is ju...

Re: Championship 18/19 - QPR v West Brom tonight

15 points from 14 matches is only just better than relegation form so there is no reason we should go from top 2 all season to relegation form, that would be a bigger slump than the one we suffered under Monk.
