The manager said yesterday he had a very good chance of starting on Sunday, so looks like he was crocked in training.

ffs our lot even get red carded in training.
We signed him with an injury and then injured him some more :cry:

19 year old kid with a poor record in lg 1 never suggested a signing for now anyhow.

Hey ho role on next season.

Unbelievable......oh no it's not, just typical Leeds

We are jinxed

We might as well lock the gates up & close down the club
Don't tempt fate 64....The gates were almost locked and the club closed down after the Ridsdale/O'Leary debacle!

Better get some anti-biotics then...
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"

Too late, it's already fell off.

I'd just pop over to Headingley following the Rhinos & YCC where we have much more chance of watching sport at the highest level in my twilight years

Revie always said ER was cursed......trust the great man was right

Wont be going to Burma (isnt fit).

Expected to be fit for next season.

8months after signing.

Bizarre signing at a time when we needed an instant impact.

We drafted Gareon Conley and Obi Melifonwu rounds one and two last season. Think they played one game between them before landing on IR

s**t happens

Thought he did ok myself.

Yes he should have scored a few.

But for 1 chance he showed great pace and strength to get to the ball, decent shot well saved.

Lovely movement to get into the scoring positions.

For such a lack of match sharpness he did ok.

All strikers miss chances, Roofe last season, Chris Wood, they all do it.

If he is still doing it in 3 4 5 games time then there's a problem, but after 1 game is ok with me.

He was a nuisance, imo thats most important, if he had 0 impact then id be annoyed, but he was a pest.

Agree, he's a fair way behind Roofe though atm. Roberts movement good when coming off the shoulder to beat someone for pace, less good when we were playing around the box. Should have maybe done better from when Alioski unlocked the defence. Fluffed his lines there. I counted 5 chances of which only one needed a save.

Been one of our best players during his spell through the middle.

Nice touches, good work rate, finishes to and his pace is useful.

I like him.

Probably starts vs Wednesday although Roofe may be fit for a bench role.
