Re: Tokyo Olympic Games

Looks like Simone Biles is out of the team gymnastics final due to an undisclosed injury.

That is a real shame.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 27th July) - Anxiety over lack of transfer activity at Elland Road

I'm not at all worried. I think (hope?) that the reason we haven't brought in an attacking midfielder is that perhaps Rodrigo has made progress in filling that role. If we've improved as much from the end of last year to the start of this as we did from the start of last season to the end, we're goi...

Re: Lewis Bate

I guess Chelsea management figure they can simply buy proven talent, whatever the cost, and can let their youngsters go.

Good for us.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 20th July) - Leeds poised to sign Kalvin Phillips understudy

Looking at the videos of Bate, the kid seems to have excellent vision and an outstanding ability to know where everyone is on the pitch . He can turn and make passes to players who couldn't possibly have been in his field of vision just a moment before. And his passes are superb. I know the videos s...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 19th July) - Bielsa selection dilemma at centre back

Besides look at the video, i know highlights can be misleading but some of those passes are world class, their is talent in him. Some were absolutely Pablo-esque. Me likey. Definitely worth it at that price. I think Koch showed he might make a good DMF at times last year. I prefer to think of our s...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Friday 16th July) - Costa off to Spain?

Don't know why people are worried about other teams figuring us out. We were better the second half of last year than the first, after we had already played everyone once. Against Aresenal, Leicester, Scum, Man City, Liverpool, and Tottenham the second time around we lost only the once to Arsenal an...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 15th July) - Italian media links Leeds with Croatian winger Josip Brekalo

My point is they'd all be ahead of Shack in the pecking order. Injury to Kalvin and Koch or Struijk would step up, Klich, Dallas, someone like Nandez and Rodrigo would be interchangable for the 8/10 positions. Bielsa, like me, rates Roberts who's also ahead of Shack.. I'm fairly sure Bamford is our...

My favorites in the USA:

Greasy Corner, Arkansas
Monkey's Eyebrow, Kentucky, which for some reason bills itself as the goose capital of mid-America.

Re: Now time for proper football.....your hopes for 2021/22

Surprised many opting for mid-table, surely we should be hoping for improvement this season even if it's just a couple of places higher than 9th. I do believe if we hadn't suffered so many injuries to the likes of Phillips, Llorente, Koch, Rodrigo, Cooper, etc we could conceivably finished higher t...

Because they're just looking for excuses and someone to blame. The blame stops with the manager for his negative tactics.
