A surprising stat to the world of football but not to us Leeds fans

How are you mate?
TBH, struggling a bit, but keeping my head above water.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 5th June)How many Leeds players have actually tested positive for Covid 19?

From what I understand, it's one member of the coaching staff.


So the answer to the question is 'none'.


I may, of course, be wrong.

Re: Could Leeds United be crowned champions without kicking another ball?

Let's assume no more games are possible in the regular season... Leeds, WBA promoted. Hard to argue with that. It only takes three games for the play offs to be decided (make the first ties a single match/leg...) Even the EFL should be able to arrange for three games to be played to settle the third...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thur 12th Mar) - All matches to be played behind closed doors?

In addition, if the Forest players were asymptomatic (which, by definition, they will have been) they will test negative. The test is positive only a couple of days after the infection develops, not during the incubation phase...

Of course, the season can be extended until 25th May without penalty by the simple expedient of cancelling the play-offs...

Eric Olthwaite precisely sums up the Yorkshireman's attitude to life. It were hard to accept I were boring. Especially with my interest in rain fall.

Re: Album of 1995 - NOMINATE ONE ALBUM

Selective snobbery, if you like, although my objection isn't that it's mainstream, I like plenty of mainstream stuff. I genuinely don't like or rate it, but then I really don't like or rate the Beatles , so I'm not going to be impressed by someone who declared himself a songwriting genius for rippi...

Ah, just the man. Would you care to nominate THRAK as your favourite album of 1995 so I can vote for it, please?

And so that Hector has to listen to it.

Thank you!

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 24th February) Leeds stretch lead to five points over play off rivals

I'm surprised given we've restored nearly half our pre-wobble gap to third, garnered back to back wins and clean sheets that the mood isn't a wee bit more positive. We're Leeds, aren't we...? Not so much glass half full as glass dropped before it got to the tap/bottle, the shards stamped into a fin...

I only saw them for the first time two tours ago. Also went to the Albert Hall last summer - absolutely phenomenal. I've seen a lot of bands, but nothing even comes close for the sheer intensity of the experience. Glad you saw it too!
Every band should have three drummers... ;-)

Did you see the 50th anniversary tour? Incredible as ever! I had given up on ever being able to see Crimson, but have now seen them on their last 4 tours. Astounding in every way. Saw the 50th at the Royal Albert Hall with my daughter - who had never really heard Crimson until that night. We were b...

Sadly, working 'til late tonight, so will celebrate tomorrow.

Done a couple of gigs so far this year - IQ and The Aristocrats - if plans work out, I'll see over 100 bands this calendar year...
