Re: Nottingham Forest v Leeds Utd Match Thread

A loss apiece for Bournemouth and Soton were the only good results for us yesterday. Wet Spam only drawing was not a disaster but shock wins for Leicester away and Wolves home v Liverpool and the most shocking of all Everton beating Arsenal were. So, with the double header against that lot next up, ...

Re: Jesse Marsch-How long to turn it around?

I'm certainly not assuming the circumstances for all white men are the same, and I do take economic class as the key factor in influencing a person's chances in life. However, none of them have had to face racism, misogyny, or homophobia, if they are straight, so the appeal to 'banter' to continue ...

Re: Supporting Leeds United (Welcome & Introductions)

Welcome aboard Dizi. I hope our club can maintain your interest and eventually divert you from your Arsenal interest. Tough call at the moment seeing as though they are top of the League and we are scrambling around near the bottom. Historically, it has been a lot worse than this for Leeds United bu...

😀. I’m not giving up on Kristensen just yet, he has a fair bit to prove though, right enough.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 2nd February) Orta pulled the plug on Harrison sale

So Paddy comes back and immediately Rodrigo is out, unbelievable! Shame too as Rodders has been looking sharp so far this season. Is Rutter an out an out striker? I thought he was more a right sided attacker/right winger.

Apparently not Jay! Some woman who’s in charge of one of our millions of unelected quango’s (trying to justify her well paid but unnecessary job) said so. And even if you did you couldn’t call it a f#iry cake 😉.

Re: Jesse Marsch-How long to turn it around?

Presumably the 'we' who could 'laugh off the banter' refers to straight, white, able-bodied men who weren't on the receiving end of any of it, and who weren't struggling against a structurally prejudiced system which disadvantaged them economically and socially at every turn, just for being who the...

Re: Jesse Marsch-How long to turn it around?

I have no idea whether his homophobia is good old light hearted homophobia or he has posters of Colin Ireland in his bedroom. He does seem very fixed on his dislike though, afair he said the thought of men having sex was "repulsive". I don't recall your "lighten up" lecture when...

If a 2 week ban for "idiot" was appropriate, I wonder how long will velo be banned for his persistent homophobic "bum boys" insults? It will surely be a month or 2. Pity, but he does seem very fixed on using it. Lighten up my friend. The “bum boys” reference is surely just light...

Re: Jesse Marsch-How long to turn it around?

Marsch has been backed to the hilt in this latest transfer window (Wober and McKennie certainly being his choices, possibly Rutter too) and that suggests to me that his job may be secure at least until he has had a chance to bed this latest crop of players in. It goes against the grain slightly but,...

Re: Alexi Lalas vs Leeds fans

You won't lose all of us BBGG. Some of us were Leeds fans before the Americans showed up. I will admit that it makes it that much more fun for me having American National Team players at the club. The 49ers are not an attraction for me. And of course I'm suffering through the Manager with the rest ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 2nd February) Orta pulled the plug on Harrison sale

I’m glad we didn’t sell Jack in the end. I’ve always liked him and at the reported fee of £20m he would have been drastically undersold going by todays crazy prices. It’s going to be interesting to see how Marsch will fit everybody in and keep everybody happy after this latest spending spree. I’m th...

Re: Alexi Lalas vs Leeds fans

I’m under no illusion that if the American connection, the manager, players and prospective owner disappear from Leeds United, so will a lot of our new found American fans, and not only would it not surprise me, I would actually expect that to be the case. Our new friends will not have developed the...

Yea, but, every footballer ought to know nowadays, to be in a decent set up, a club with ambition, and in the future thats hopefully where we are heading, we are building a project, the players should know there will be changes/rotations at times, whether this is the manager going forward is anothe...

Re: Charlie Cresswell - Why, why, why?

Charlie always looked well ahead of his age group and looked a real star in the making. I’m just wondering whether this was because he matured and developed so much earlier than his contemporaries and that is why he looked so dominant at that level, and now that he’s playing alongside the big boys i...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 1st February) - Whites reject Foxes advances for Harrison

This January, for once, promises to have been a very good transfer window, I hope it turns out that way. It’ll be interesting to see how Marsch will use what appears now to be a plentiful and talented squad and keep them all happy and motivated. I suppose some good wins and climbing the table will h...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 31st January) - Roma seal Llorente loan move

Perhaps Struijk in for Firpo, neither are quite good enough in my opinion (not Struijk’s fault as he’s a centre back), but Struijk edges it for me, he’s definitely the better defender. Rutter in place of Summerville and one of Bamford or Rodrigo up top. A bench comprising Sinisterra, Harrison, Coop...

I tend to agree but, depending on state of play, he needs to be given half an hour at least. None of this nonsense of bringing him on with 5 minutes to go lark, which is what Joffey had to put up with.
