Re: 100 Greatest Leeds Players

True, unless you've seen every era it is impossible to make an accurate assessment I never saw John Charles play however I realise he was probably above my heroes from the Revie team Not one player over the last 40 years could replace one of that great recognized 60's/'70's Leeds team. The likes of...

The Revie XI plus Madeley & John Charles should be in the first thirteen greatest players 15th Paul Reaney, 16th Terry Cooper, 17th Mick Jones, 21st Bobby Collins, 23rd & Tony Yeboah in 23rd.....we're having a laugh aren't we ?

Re: Leeds United v Rotherham Official matchday thread

111 touches, 88 successful passes, 87% passing accuracy. Not sure we should be dropping Phillips right now.

In this system not everything will come off, the team have only been playing it a few weeks. Out of all of the players Phillips is one of the ones who has adapted best.

Re: Leeds United v Rotherham Official matchday thread

Good win, Rotherham were always going to be a different prospect. Kind of game we might not have taken 3 points early last season.

Also think a clean sheet is good too.

100 Greatest Leeds Players

About 13 years ago we surveyed the members of a few Leeds forums to find the 100 Greatest Leeds United players. Looking at the list below do you think there are any players that may deserve a higher listing, any who you think should be lower, any surprise omissions or any players from the past 15 ye...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thur 16th Aug)

So far Bielsa has used Cooper, Jansson, Berardi, Phillips & Ayling as his CB's Concern for me is defending set-pieces plus if Pontus & Cooper are unavailable that problem would be even more of a worry! In a fluid system I don't mind Ayling, Philips and Berardi covering or as one of a three but you ...

Re: Motorway bridge collapses

Absolutely shocking.

An incredible piece of engineering, sounds like age and neglect may be to blame.

Do we really need another winger?

Definitely need a centre half though.

Bielsa's Philosophy - The Collective is Key

http://www.motforum.com/images/th/leeds_derby.png We all know what the Bielsa philosophy means now. We will see his Leeds United team pressing high, a quick transition between phases, vertical passing to cut out the maximum number of defenders, playing the ball out from the back, inverted wingbacks...

Fraser House

Newcastle swoop in and sign Fraser House for £90 Million. Can't say I've heard of him but must be good at that price! Must be frustrating for Newcastle fans when the have a net profit of £21 Million in their transfer dealings this summer to see their owner splash £90 Million. Likewise Spurs, £400 Mi...
