Re: Diego Martinez

A very impressive record however their is a downside. His tactics, a Bielsa clone he is not, not even Similar really. More defensive and counter attacking than possession based, direct as well, not against a hoof Would you say that was more down to trying to get the most out of the players he had a...

Re: Points dropped.

Likely more just frustration on KP's part aftr so many games for England where he has been allowed to venture forward and basically do what he wants against teams that would struggle to give Leon's bowls team a match (and we're talking footy here not bowls as they'd win at bowls). For me I see the i...

Re: Cricket's Shame

It casts big doubts on his character and makes you wonder how offended he really was by being around people drinking etc and not treating him like the good upstanding Muslim he suggested...

Re: Cricket's Shame

I'd be surprised if Headingly is reinstated and the sponsors return. They've lost their kit sponsor, shirt sponsor and ground sponsor, along with over £10 million from internationals. They'll find it very hard to get new sponsors because the findings about racist harrassment and bullying still stan...

Having to check they were from him, as he couldn't remember, and then apologising. Funny that, he had no problem in remembering spoken words from around the same time, give or take a year, when he was allegedly on the receiving end but amnesia until shown the written words when he was the racist!! ...

It appears some do and some don't (believe everything he says) I belive a lot of what he says. However some parts I feel were out of order and shouldn't have been said but some parts are just being made to sound worse. The bit about the player being nicknamed Steve is just ridiculous.

Re: Cricket's Shame

What is interesting is the Matthew Hoggard news. Hoggard rang him to say sorry, the apology was accepted, it was as simple as that, Hoggard man enough to admit he got it wrong, Rafiq gracious enough to accept his apology, they draw a line under it and move on. Which says something about both. Becau...

Problem with hazing is it doesn't work for everyone.. My old football team decided to throw me, "the new kid" into the canal.. Before they could grab my legs I'd kicked one in the balls as he tried, another caught my knee in their jaw as I struggled and a third accidently got a hand in the eye... I...

Re: Cricket's Shame

Some interesting points and things can always look far worse taken out of context and/or looked at years later. Having been involved in team sport for several years 'banter' is something that goes on amongst team mates and some of it is definitely not for the faint hearted. It can often amount to bu...

Re: Manchester City Thread - How great is Joao Cancelo?

Disgraced Manchester city footballer Benjamin Mendy has been charged with an additional 2 counts of rape taking the total up to 6 plus 1 charge of serial assault. I wonder how Bielsa feels about this given that he was Mendy's manager and basically turned him into the player he bacame. Given what al...

Re: Norwich Thread - Lampard pulls out of Norwich talks

It does raise the question as to who was their original 1st choice given Smith was still at Villa when they sacked Farke. It just makes the whole decision seem even more staggeringly stupid. They thought he was doing such a bad job they had decided to sack him. Despite this they thought it was bett...

Re: Norwich Thread - Lampard pulls out of Norwich talks

Didn't guarantee him the 300 million he'd need to build a mid table team I think it would definitely have been something like this. He'd have wanted them to spend a fortune in January to try to buy them a chance of staying up and then likely the guarantee of spending a load if they went down. It is...

Re: Premier league 2

Scottish football needs a huge shake-up really. To realy compete a lot of club should merge - for example Hearts & Hibs to simply be one team, the 2 Dundee clubs etc. That is their only hope of competing rather than simply one set of fans havign the bragging rights every time they play their neighbo...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 11th November) Will Bielsa be around next season?

Does he need to commit to the next 3 seasons to be able to spend next Summer's bumper budget? Ideally yes but I doubt it would really make much difference given how we seem to pursue targets. It seems it is almost more a seal of approval if Bielsa gives the nod after VO finds a list of players. As ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Friday 12th November) - Leeds need to get real says Mills

Danny Mills is up there with Kewell and Rio amongst my least favourite ex Leeds players. When he was still a player in the prime of his career he said that he wasn't really interested in football, didn't watch matches on the tv etc yet suddenly now wants to be a pundit.

Re: Aston Villa Thread - Did Grealish's exit cost Smith his Villa job?

Did Grealish's exit cost Smith his Villa job? I think it did. The stats for the previous couple of years seemed to suggest how overly reliant they were on Grealish. A bit like Norwich selling Buendia, Villa sold their best player, and didn't really replace him - although weirdly coincidental that B...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 10th November) - Is this Klich's last season at Elland Road?

Hopefully having more options (even if it is just Forshaw) in midfield will allow Klich to get back to his best. Hard to know with his injury if he will ever get back to his best or whether it is just one that has to be managed and he needs a bit more rest to recover and as such isn't going to be ab...
