Re: Is Heck slowly turning us around ?

So amidst all the criticism Heck is playing on a level playing field for the first time at Derby for yet another challenge against a top seven side. He's not playing against the likes of Burton, Birmingham, Forest, Ipswich, Hull, Millwall where TC mustered five points from those seven games, then t...

Re: Adam Forshaw

Not writing Grot or Klich off but both need to show they can do it in the championship. Hopefully both can.

Re: Pierre-Michel Lasogga

But alienates those earning a lot less, especially as Lassoga wouldn't be our best player and earning double..I'd imagine Saiz, Hernandez, Jansson and a couple of others would want wage rises to bring them into line with Lassoga Always ways around it i.e. wages £10k p/w but £1m signing on fee etc.

Re: Adam Forshaw

He had one ..just too bloody minded to play him Until Klich shows he can do it in the championship it is impossible to know if he could do a job for us. Grot and Botaka were both regulars (Grot in the top league and Botaka a division below) in dutch football so I think it would be fair to say the s...

Re: Adam Forshaw

Forshaw completed 43 passes v BC, more than any other player from either side. He also completed 84:6 of his passes, the highest % of any Leeds player A tidy player in the Batty mould. His pass success ratio should always be high because the majority of his passes are the safe type to a team mate i...

Re: Pablo Hernandez

Would probably have to go to more of a diamond midfield with presumably Forshaw as the defensive midfield, Saiz as the attacking midfielder, Hernadez and 1 other as the 2 wider players with Hernandez and Saiz given license to rotate. Either that or you go to a 451 with Ekuban and Hernandez as the 2 ...

Re: Is Heck slowly turning us around ?

Heck walked into a minefield inheriting a job with three players suspended (as well as the players TC has to take responsibility for our poor discipline) plus Heck had three players on the injury list. Poor disclipline I could blame the manager for if he was telling them to go out and be aggressive...

Re: Is Heck slowly turning us around ?

Even though we were poor in the first-half we still created a couple of decent chances. Felix & our redundant defence put us on the back foot We were poor in the first half as such like I said either the wrong starting XI was selected or they weren't fired up. Either way not good and no improvement...

Re: Is Heck slowly turning us around ?

Agree with Cjay. We have been dire in our last few first halves, including the 2 under PH, and been significantly better in the second halves even when playing with 10 men (such as v Millwall, Ipswich and Cardiff) so really there is no change at all. I wouldn't get too carried away yet with PH's cha...

Re: Leeds Fans 2-0 Bristol City

Must admit when I heard the firs Waccoe chants it just brought a wry smile to my face and the thought that we never will be. Almost felt almost like we were taking the mickey out of ourselves (along the lines of the Leeds are falling apart song). However rather than it just petering out the crescend...

Re: Leeds v Bristol City - MAN OF THE MATCH

PH - At the heart of everything good we did and the catalyst for the comeback Anita - Wasn't great at the start, but who was, but got better and better as the game went on and looked assured in possession and seemed to be getting forward well too - something we have missed without Ayling. Showed the...

Re: Current moderators

I would suggest that if anyone wants to stand they do so otherwise we keep the current moderators. If we maybe say a closing date as end of Feb and then we have a vote with the 3 current lowest placed moderators and all new applicants and then forma new moderator group.

will you just do another one on how Terry Tosspot from Tadcaster Albion will finally be the man to get Leeds promoted?
Just got a fiver on Terry being our next manager at the bookies. Seems they share your view as he was 5/4 favourite.

no idea why he gets so much bad rep. got us promoted and got sacked when we were 10th and three points off the playoffs in the championship. i'd take him back here without a doubt did a great job at preston too on very little resources Completely agree.

Re: Wolves

I see things differently as the continued recruitment of young players suggests a much longer term plan than just getting promoted and 'flipping.' If he simply wanted to get us promoted and then sell us then spending money on buying the stadium and buying young players makes no sense at all as it wo...

Re: Klich/Christiansen

O'Kane was part of the team that did well at the start of the season. Just seems that once a few fans get on a player's back they then can't do anything right - won't be the first player that will probably leave us and then go on to be a good player elsewhere.
