Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 16th June) - Sky Sport Pundit rips into tabloid following Phillips article

Since we learned to defend corners we leapt up the form table, and were incredibly hard to beat. I'd be fairly happy with just a couple of players coming in - a specialist left back and a versatile midfield player. With Llorente and Koch in the squad there is no need to spend £££ on someone to deput...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 3rd June) Leeds to break the bank for Belgium star

Taking the knee has either run its course or lost its effect, as it has been going on for a year. Black lives do matter, but they matter equally regardless of the skin colour of the person committing the crime. I'm not convinced that black lives matter to black lives matter, if they did, there would...

Re: Shaun Harvey

Apparently Reed was recently ‘technical director’ at the FA.

What on earth does a technical director do, anywhere?

Re: Gianni Alioski ***New Contract***

To replace Alioski with a player of equivalent quality, even as cover... would cost several million quid. I'd sooner retain him, even if we have to push the boat out, and offload Costa - who we'd get a few bob for and a large wage off the bill. Giving Alioski five grand a week more than he is worth,...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Friday 228th May) - Could Manchester City target Phillips as Fernandinho successor?

It is a positive sign that the sides higher up the league than us are interested in our players. Of course, Leeds fans are (perhaps rightly) scarred by the years of poor management of contracts and us flogging off our best talent to the first bidder, and replacing them with utter shite. Usually on e...

Re: Marcelo Bielsa press conference: Berardi and Hernandez exits, West Brom team news

I would assume that this has been done with Bielsa's approval. Berardi was likely to be released last summer but got injured having come back to the club after lockdown 1, so the club did the right thing giving him some financial security for his rehabilitation. Pablo has a year left on his existing...

Re: Allardyce to Step down.

Keeping West Brom up was an impossible job with the players he had inherited and the budget available in the window.

It certainly would have been his biggest achievement if he’d been able to get them over the line.

Far better than ‘surviving’ with a decent Everton side in his last job.

Re: Chris Wilder

His post match interview from the Leicester game last season is worth a listen. Interestingly after that their form took a nose dive. And hardly a surprise - a squad of players who had done incredibly well all season suffers a bad defeat against a side in and around the CL places and he goes balls d...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 20th May) - Elland Road capacity needs to be 50-60k to compete

Another thing to consider with Rodrigo, god forbid if Paddy got injured we now know Rodrigo is more than ready to step into those boots. Given Roberts may not be with us next season that'll be even more vital. I'd look to move Roberts on, if there is cash on the table. I know he scored in the last ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 20th May) - Elland Road capacity needs to be 50-60k to compete

I'd be interested to see what the proposals are for the refurb of the ground. Realistically to get 60k capacity I'd have thought we'd have to move the pitch to the north, somewhat? As for demand... if the product on the pitch is good, people will come. We've got a good side that is good to watch... ...

Re: Liam Cooper

Not seen the game yet, but given everyone's comments and with Struijk's incredible season, you'd have to say Cooper is definitely 4th choice now. Still, a very handy CB to have in the squad and will get minutes as 4th choice due to cup games/suspensions/injuries etc. Yep. We have more than adequate...

If we get £5m for him it’ll be an even bigger robbery than the one committed in Rennes last summer.

But has MB seen enough of him? :) Hah. There is clearly a reason why he’s on several million a year and I have a day job.

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.
