Re: John Motson gaffe?

I doubt Tom Elliott would have been offended as it’s simply an adjective. We’re all so easily upset these days. I worked with two “coloured” guys for over 20 years and they referred to themselves and their friends as black. It's an adjective, sure, but unnecessary in the context of what Motty was s...

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

It's still in our hands.

Those games against WBA and Sheff Utd are big(ger) now though.

Re: John Motson gaffe?

Seems so. I remember when John Terry was accused of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand. Terry apparently called him a F*cking Bl*ck C*nt. I read that Ferdinand didn't object to being called a F*cking C*nt but was upset because he was called bl*ck. Sorry, I just don't get it. Because he called him a b...

Re: John Motson gaffe?

But would anyone have taken offence at that? Just asking..... I don't know, but clearly they did? I don't want to make assumptions of anyone's race, but I presume on here the majority of posters are Caucasian, so really we aren't in a position to judge. If a white person got offended by Bob's 'SWG'...

Why mention his race at all when describing him, as if that's one of his defining features as a player? You wouldn't say Pontus was big, white and brave, it's irrelevant.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tue 19th Feb)

No team better to be playing than Bolton. Let's hope Bamford can get a goal or two and that Roberts can impress at 10.

Would be nice to get Brown involved from this point on if Roofe is likely to be out at least a month.

Re: Chelsea v Man Utd - FA Cup Match on the BBC

The best result we can hope for is for the winner of the game to be found guilty or breaking the rules and also be knocked out. Just a load of red cards and a charge of bringing the game into disrepute. Scum players still get off lightly imo- Young should have walked in the second half for a second...

Re: Chelsea v Man Utd - FA Cup Match on the BBC

Chelsea look really poor at the moment - I couldn't tell you what 'kind' of team they are/their style of play. Rashford is some player. I don't know why Pogba isn't being held more accountable for the way he played under Mourinho - he looks a different player now and yet is playing the same position...

Re: Are we the best team?

Considering we've not had a full strength squad at any point this season and that we have been top 2/3 since Christmas, there's definitely an argument for it. We dominate games and create considerably more chances than other teams in the league, even though teams change the way they play for us. I'v...

pair of gorgeous assists from Diaz playing in the Phillips role I think https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1130843050443321&t=2 Great movement from Stevens and composure to round the keeper. Some finish from Gotts as well - a nice way to see in a new contract. Is Diaz CDM or CB? Probably both in Bie...

Re: Leeds United Under-23's thread

Injured unfortunately. After signing his contract at Leeds he walked under a ladder, that a painter was using to paint a new club crest in the corridor, and a open tin of paint fell on him causing him to momentarily panic and trip up over Lucky, Doris the cleaner's black cat, and fall down 13 stair...

That followed Robbie Gotts signing an extension. Getting these names tied down for an extra year (with 1 year extension options)

Re: Championship 18/19

If we had a Sharp (in SU form, not LU form) a Puki or a Gayle I'm sure we'd all be more confident and in which case we'd be well clear now anyway but we don't possess that striker which is the big worry for me especially with Roofe's reported problem. We brought in Bamford, but he's only managed to...

Re: Missed out on this talent.....

You can see a mile off what happened. A load of rubbish. Phil Hay has said that Swansea wanted James for the games that month, so were unlikely to sell before deadline day. Leeds met their demands, only for them to be changed... so we met those demands... only for them to be changed... and so on. W...

Re: Kemar Roofe

I'm not talking about giving up on them. Just that I'm sick and tired of all the injuries. Because of that, if we finish in the top two I will be amazed. No other club in the top six has had to endure what we have injury wise. You have to admit that! Why on why do we have so many injuries is what I...

Re: Kemar Roofe

I certainly think that MB's training methods have influenced the number of injuries. This just is not normal to keep sustaining the amount of injuries that Leeds have all season. This must be some sort of record and for me it's not a coincidence. I understand that impact injuries will happen at any...
