Boro closing in on a double loan from Everton.

Mo Besic and Yannick Bolasie :(

Two players who would have definitely improved us, especially besic

If McClaren had been appointed at Leeds I would seriously have considered not purchasing a season-ticket. Fifteen years of pain with more to come would have been too much to bare :chair:

The brolly man was one of the favorites to take over at Leeds :shock:
Rumours today he was getting the boot if they lost tonight, well they did - could be gone 4 games in.

I have no idea how McClaren keeps getting jobs. When was the last time he improved a team?

Made a very decent living out of being a very average manager, and I'm being kind there.

Well he made Leeds look a much better team than they were when he was in charge of Derby...

Villa on the verge of signing two international wingers.

Anwar El Ghazi and Yannick Bolasie.

Cant help but feel we are being left behind again.

Risking it all on a paper thin squad like the last few seasons where we really only needed 2 or 3 quality additions.

Kodjia equalises with the last kick of the game for Villa, 2-2 with Brentford. Good result for us, keeps us top and they take points off each other. Although I think Villa will be the bigger threat in the long run.

Stoke losing 3-0 at home to Wigan and Ashley Williams sent off. Looks like Rowett might not even make it beyond the first international break!

21 + potentially players from the U23s - a couple of weeks ago we wouldn't really have been talking of Shackleton as a member of the first team squad.

Bolton and Wigan doing very nicely so far this season which is more than can be said of promotion favourites Stoke who are now second bottom.

I'm really pleased with last night's results

Everybody's favourites Stoke City are struggling

Villa drop a points at home

My three dark horses for the season - Brentford drop two points in the last minute. Preston & Millwall both lose

Monk's team loses again

The surprises are Wigan, Bolton & Blackburn all three promoted clubs doing well

Early doors yet!

As you say 64 early doors, but two 'believers' in the predicted end of season table finish had Leeds at the top - BB and EB

Just got to stay there for another 42 games !! :)

Heard him interviewed after the game the other night "football is about boxes, keeping it out of the net at one end and putting it in the net at the other, we aren't doing either well enough at the moment" (maybe not verbatim) - absolute football genius, I'm glad he pointed that out to me, I was struggling to figure the game out!

Lets face it 90% of what comes out of the mouths of 90% of managers is cliche ....
