Re: Koch and Klich won't play again this season

Rodders will come in for Klich probably.

He looked sharp against Burnley, a couple of starts would help him as well.

I'd like to see Shackleton get some game time as well.

Re: Today's Games

I’m surprised more goalies don’t go forward late on in games tbh.

If you’re getting beat in injury time and have a free kick or corner... throw them all forward.

Re: Gianni Alioski- Potential racism allegation.

Given Alioski’s lack of filter, if he wanted to be racist he’d go straight for the N-bombs.

And wouldn’t waste him being subtle.

Re: Tyler Roberts

He hasn’t scored a goal this season in over 20 appearances.

And rarely looks like creating or scoring.

I’m sure that in his Leeds career to date he has more yellow cards than goals.

If there is money on the table that will cover what we’ve spent on him - transfer fee and wages, I’d move him on.

Re: Positives & Negatives v Burnley ???? (one of each please)

Having more options in more positions might mean that in order to give them all regular action we will be forced to compete properly in cup competitions.

Rather than just sacking them off.

Best to be safe than sorry imo!
If that is your opinion, have your jab and take any precautions that you see fit.

Everyone else should be free to do what they want.

Re: What is the point of reduced crowds?

This is ultimately what it has to come down to. At the end of the day, nobody can completely control the actions of others without turning the country into a police state. I've heard some baffling reasons as to why individuals don't wear masks or get the vaccines, some truly foolish excuses, but ul...

Re: What is the point of reduced crowds?

Young people are likely to affect others as they haven't had their jabs. We are in a vicious circle if a minority of the population are irresponsible as is the case with the Asian community in the North West & parts of London. If you’ve had your jab then... you should be absolutely fine. If people ...

Re: What is the point of reduced crowds?

The number of young people who have been seriously affected by Covid are tiny.

Let people take responsibility for their own actions.

Re: Jack Harrison, Worth £10 million?

We aren’t going to get anyone better than him for less than £20m, realistically.

I’d get the deal done, and would be quite enthusiastic about it too.

Because we are out of respiratory virus season and vulnerable people who wanted the vaccine have had it.

If people want to lock themselves down let them crack on.

Re: Gianni Alioski- Potential racism allegation.

If Alioski wanted to racially abuse an opposition player he’d just do it.

He’d not go to the effort of trying to do something subtle.

Re: Positives & Negatives v Burnley ???? (one of each please)

Positive: Rodrigo clinical again. Clearly wants to go to the Euros. Negative: I really rate him, but Struijk was poor today and almost cost us the equaliser until Meslier saved his arse. Yes, I thought Struijk was a bit off today. Despite his ability I think he lacks a bit of confidence in himself ...

Re: Crystal Palace Thread ***Fwank***

Just think...

It isn’t beyond the realms of possibility that we could have signed him 20 years ago.

Instead we bought Seth Johnson for treble his value, and ten times his deserved wages, on a very long term deal.

Fantastic player but an ordinary manager. Very ordinary actually.
