Re: Greatest of all time

I googled this out of interest and generally the top 3 were Pele , Maradona and Messi . The majority seemingly giving Pele the nod over the other 2 . My own preference is Cruyff . If for no other reason than I was privileged to see him play once at Wembley . It was breathtaking and I've never seen a...

Re: Greatest of all time

Don't know that he was the best player of all time, but my favorite player ever (apart from Bremner, of course) was Sócrates Brasileiro Sampaio de Souza Vieira de Oliveira. A positively brilliant attacking midfielder; his passing and vision on the field were unrivaled. He could read and dominate a ...

Re: Our Identity

That quarter-final match v Spurs you mention Billie is one of my favourite Leeds games of all time We played some scintillating football that day as we had done for much of that season. John Pratt gave Spurs a undeserved first-half lead with a freak goal. Leeds stormed back after the break with goa...

Re: Our Identity

I love those stocking tabs introduced by the great man Revie in 1973 :tup: I loved those tags to . I remember them being worn in the 72 cup final and after a little research discovered that they made their debut in the quarter final tie vs Spurs along with the pre match warm up and track suits with...

Re: Our Identity

1. The fans themselves , not least the (sometimes) dark humour in adversity. 2. Two words Revie's "Keep Fighting " . I heard about the sign above the door when I was very young and it has always stayed with me . 3. The owl badge and the smiley badge from the 60's and 70's era . Not been th...

Re: Forest v Leeds - Team/Reports/Ratings....

The whole tone of McQueen was so ungracious and totally dismissive of the brilliant work ( so far ) of our new owner . Lost whatever respect I had left for him .

Re: Forest v Leeds - Team/Reports/Ratings....

I read an interview with Gordon McQueen and Viv Anderson both arguing why their former clubs will never get back to their glory days . McQueen still has a real downer on Leeds United concluding they've wasted too much time and money over the decades and will never catch up now . All to justify why h...

Wood not in the 18 and has made an statement ruling himself out of the game today due to "strong premier league interest " and discussions with the club

Re: Saturday Breakfast Debate - Wood on his way to Burnley

Nothing concrete on this from Hay or Pope and as yet nothing on Sky . Wood has travelled to Sunderland and at 4.30 I guess we'll find out if he's picked to play

Re: Sunday Breakfast Debate - Christiansen speaks out/Charlie

I agree it's good to hear that from TC about Wood . What does Wood want to do though ? Hopefully he doesn't want to join Taylor on the Burnley bench .

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2017

And Sky are reporting that Leeds have rejected a 16M bid from an unnamed premiership club ( but not Burnley ) for Chris Wood . Phil Hay had reported that West Ham and Stoke were rumoured to be interested so maybe one of those two clubs ?
