Re: Championship 2020/2021 - Derby/McClaren ha ha ha!

Forest and Derby's success came from punching above their weight for a few years under Clough. Nothing they've done before or since really stands out. Provincial clubs with good local support, elevated by circumstances which are unlikely to recur. I'd put them above clubs like Birmingham and Sheff ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 26th November) - Leeds City Council not expecting fans back at Elland Road soon

The stadium, as it stands, is a bit tired and rough around the edges but it has character. The west stand needs to be replaced to increase capacity and like others I’m surprised that scheme is not already underway although I suppose planning and design take time. I wonder if they are thinking about ...

Looks like Derby are in free fall - couldn’t be more deserved.

Rather you than me mate, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near a hospital in these surreal times, needs must in your case Byebye.

“Blimey” is probably about right 64, no broken limbs just a “broken”right eye! Won’t furnish you with the gory details but should, all being well, have my right eye back in business in the new year. 👍🏻

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 25th November) Orta outlines transfer window plans for January

Morning all, 5 days ago I had a bit of a set too with a hawthorn hedge at the bottom of the garden, the hedge won convincingly and now after 4 hospital visits and 1 emergency operation I’m now back in circulation. Consequently I missed the Arsenal match but by all accounts, backed up by the stats, i...

Re: The Leeds United Weekend Debate

1) Phillips and Rodrigo hopefully will be back and that should make a bit of a difference. I would also like to see Hernandez on the bench and be given 1/2 an hour or so. 2) Not really P and R coming back will strengthen the team. 3) A tighter defence conceding fewer goals. 4) I think Ayling and Koc...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 19th November) Philips has a chance of playing on Sunday

Phillips and Rodrigo back for Arsenal would be excellent (and essential to give us any chance), and Pablo on the bench for the last half hour to turn things round if needs be. Bielsa wouldn’t be able to guarantee Alioski 1st team football from here on in but he would be useful as back up perhaps for...

Mike Dean again! Well that is just provocative and typical of the football authorities. I just hope he has a mind to try and make up for his appalling cock-up in our last game and give us a fair shout, but somehow I doubt it!

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 18th November)

I’ve only ever seen Winks when he’s played for England and although he has a reputation of being a clever footballer I’ve never been massively impressed. Undoubtedly he would cost a lot of money on transfer fee and wages but the fact that he is at least 3rd in the pecking order at Spurs does not sug...

Bournemouth eh! So I was right, being on loan at Leeds United (even anonymously) was his greatest achievement! 😂

Yes when I really think about it most of the ones I mentioned do ring some very faint bells but Adam Smith, not a single jangle! He obviously didn’t go on to do anything particularly notable, I wonder whatever happened to him? Perhaps his greatest achievement in football is to be the least remember...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 17th November) - Ayling, we should have a few more points on the board

Pretty sure Adam Smith arrived on loan from Surs, and as soon as he turned up he wanted a transfer out. He also refused to play for us. David Martin, Scottish keeper from memory, Flahavan, a decent keeper. Think he was a coach for us as well at some point. Yes when I really think about it most of t...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 17th November) - Ayling, we should have a few more points on the board

Luke is probably right as deserved draws against Liverpool and Wolves would have given us 2 more points. The two 4-0 scorelines were also undeserved although it would be a big stretch to suggest we could have got any points in either. As it is 10 points is ok for a newly promoted side at this stage ...

No probs 64. Punctuation a bit awry as I’ve read it back, but that was never my strong suit.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 16th November) Keown rips into Bielsa ahead of Arsenal game

I don’t think being taken from mid table, Championship also rans to promotion within 2 years, playing fabulous football can be construed as “proving costly”. But, of course, Keown is basing his observations on just 2 games out of the 100 or so that Leeds have played since Bielsa arrived, 90% of whic...
