Re: WORLD CUP progress

Way too much praise for that performance, nice but a few red flags. Defence needs to tighten up. I thought Panama looked the better team til we scored and they're well a poor mans Monaco Needs to be less reliance on set pieces, only one proper goal from open play so far and one complete fluke The r...

Re: 2018 WORLD CUP - Russia v Saudi Arabia 4pm

I predicted 3-0 Russia.

After this season following Leeds, I guess I'm used to being reduced to wishing that games were only 85 minutes long.

Re: 2018 WORLD CUP - Russia v Saudi Arabia 4pm

Who do you think will win the 2018 World Cup ? France or Brazil Which team do you not want to win the tournament ? Germany How far will England go ? Semi-final. Feeling good about their chances this time. More team speed and a more coherent game plan than I've seen in an England side in a long time....

Re: Is he coming or what ???

This has an old familiar ring to it, alas. Soon we're going to be back in the boat of having to acquire players without knowing what sort of football we're planning on playing.

As our moron of a president would say................sad.

Re: England v Costa Rica at Elland Road

I like what Southgate is doing with this England team. Young, fast and technically and tactically disciplined. First time in yonks that I am looking forward to the England team performing in the World Cup. I agree. Much more team speed than I've seen in an English team in a very long time. I though...

Re: Next Leeds Manager Odds

Lets hope Bielsa gets the job because if he doesnt the current odds make for horrifying reading. If its a choice between a crazy, unpredictable, flawed, tactical genius and some lower league journeyman, hoof ball merchants, nutters, old hasbeens and Jaap Stam, then ill take the Genius. Hear! Hear!

Re: World Cup betting

I also have a feeling for France to win John. Trouble is they are a bit like the French rugby team and be sensational one day, but lose to anybody the next. I guess the trick with them is predicting which one of the two will turn up on the day ! Since Zidane and his famous forehead won't be around,...

By the way Cjay, you called it correctly on Heckingbottom before he was appointed and I think your analysis of our latest potential managerial acquisition is also spot on.

Kudos to you, a young man with wisdom beyond your years. :tup:

Re: Forum backing for Marco Bielsa as new manager

Have my doubts. I dont doubt the style can work in this league, its not all that different from Nuno at Wolves. I just doubt we can provide the obvious quality it requires. He needs very intelligent, highly disciplined, technically brilliant players. If he gets those then im optimistic. If we could...
