Re: Bailey Peacock-Farrell

It seems every season we have to have a boo boy and now it's Bailey's turn. It was a disappointing goal, but the swerve on the ball makes it harder for goalkeepers to read. Otherwise, I thought he did well. I don't think Blackman is better than him.

Re: Derby County versus Leeds United Official match day thread

faaip's mantra and I agree with it. You can't blame the players when the coach has no plan. I think he'll have more integrity than that. Leeds United represents a real challenge for him to prove beyond all doubt that he is as good as the top people (whom he has taught) allege. I took a lot of stick...

Re: Derby County versus Leeds United Official match day thread

Arguably the best coach in the championship. I defy anyone to name a better one ? Holloway on the new football show on Quest reckons he is premiership class I said all last season that these players were more than good enough and we just needed a top manager to go alongside them. I'm worried a PL c...

Actually we didn't. We scraped a 3-2 win over a very poor Bolton, drawing at home v an average Preston, then goal less at Fulham
We didn't scrape a win over Bolton and Chris Wood missed two gilt edged chances v Preston and Fulham as his head was turned.

Re: Derby County versus Leeds United Official match day thread

I wouldn't be surprised to see a full 11 changes on Tuesday - but without the unnecessary throwing in of untested kids and players out of position that we have seen in recent years. Admittedly 1 or 2 might be U23 players that haven't played for the first team but they will have been training and ha...

We started this well last season and soon crumbled so let's see....
The big difference for me is Bielsa has managed in South America, which is incredibly intimidating, so he will know how to handle Millwall away better.

These cant be the same players on show from when I fell asleep at a couple of games last season :sleep:
It just shows what a difference a top manager makes and some wanted to give Hecky more time :lol:

Re: Derby County versus Leeds United Official match day thread

I'd say our best performance since the Champions League days. Everyone magnificent. Positives: Backed up a great performance, with an even better one. So used to seeing us play well then have a poor game next. Comprehensively outplayed two of the promotion favourites, playing good football, not hoof...

Re: Championship 18/19 - Boro v Blunts.....Forest v Baggies

Wendies put under transfer embargo. This has annoyed me since they cheated us out of a playoff place when they knew very well they weren't playing fair. Should be a points deduction.

Re: Samu Saiz

Too many fans were rating him and others based on Heckaday's tenure, as if shouting "get stuck in lads" was how to get the best out of him. I was constantly told that Saiz was a League 1 player, even though he's clearly a class above most in this league. Keep his head screwed on and he will be a con...

Villa are paying £6m for Bryan?

What about Financial fair play???
Because the EFL are spineless, Birmingham have also got a free pass. :roll: You know they'd change their tune for us though.

Re: Liam Cooper

There's no doubt Liam has talent and can play well, but unfortunately it's only 15-20 games a season. He started well under TC before his customary red card at Cardiff and he turned into a liability. But yesterday was his best game in a LUFC shirt.

Re: So what did the Sky pundits say about our performance folks ?

Hecky was fine, it was that nobody Keith Andrews who got me a little wound up especially before the game. Seemed to very anti Leeds almost to the point that it sounded like he wanted Stoke to win. You could tell he felt stupid at HT looking much more sheepish about he's daft comments beforehand. Di...

Re: Other fans opinions

Stoke fans been very gracious and honest. Last post i can't really comment on. Leeds smashed us and deserved to but why are Leeds fans still set in the '70s. Racist singing, running on the pitch, intimidating outside the ground, swearing, shouting, threatening at people on the coaches. Nasty little...

Re: Bielsa ball needs height.

I thought we dealt well with the Crouch threat and there won't be anyone taller than him this season. The real threat will be the Millwalls, Prestons, Ipswichs etc that try and kick us off the pitch. The good thing is Saiz and Alioski seemed to get straight back up, apparently Bielsa doesn't want an...

Envious of them :(

They have a proper plan.
It's completely unsustainable though. It's something like 177% of turnover spent on wages.

Re: Leeds United versus Stoke City - Official Match day thread

Bamford for Roofe Blackman for BPF Are the changes I expect to see very soon Hope not. Roofe needs someone alongside him. They were a few opportunities today where he had no one with him, whereas a partner could've finished off the chances. Unless BPF has a shocker or is injured, then he should be ...

Re: Leeds United versus Stoke City - Official Match day thread

Well we were told from the outset that that Stoke team was far too good for the Championship, although I felt they were overrated. Very good performance and it will send a message if they're the best team in the league, then we can be right up there. The fact it is the same players that Hecky strugg...
