Re: Is This Our Best XI ?

Can't argue with our defensive solidity and attacking power whilst fielding that lineup and the results reflect it. Given our form since December it's easy to forget we would go into a game and feel confident of not only winning it but shutting the opposition out completely, but we did exactly that ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 17th February) - Leeds get back to winning ways in style

I'm thinking of a career change. Seems there's good money to be made in browsing Tw@ter, emailing the most common opinions to some non-entity clickbait site with the word sport in the heading and passing them off as my own. That's got to be the most random, baffling piece of baseless conjecture I've...

Re: Leeds Utd v Bristol City Match Thread - Unchanged Starting XI, Roberts returns to the bench

Did say a few weeks ago Dallas needed to go revert to the back four, a much better defender than Douglas & the blonde bombshell who caused absolute mayhem! Yes indeed, Ali has a proven track record of effectiveness as an impact sub for Jack anyway and Dallas looked in his element again at LB. Hopef...

Re: Leeds Utd v Bristol City Match Thread - Unchanged Starting XI, Roberts returns to the bench

13 cup finals to go, looks like a low points tally will gain promotion. Fulham have an absolutely horrible run-in with some tough fixtures and local derbies in the mix as well. Brentford & Forest only have a slightly better run-in than them. Ours is far easier ....on paper ! Given the fixtures of t...

Re: Leeds Utd v Bristol City Match Thread - Unchanged Starting XI, Roberts returns to the bench

I watched the game. We were brilliant but we have been several times this season regardless of the final result. If Wells took his chance then people wouldn't be saying great performance just moaning about chances missed etc. The Derby performance was at least on a par but because we drew 1-1 peopl...

Does feel as though we turned a corner this week.

I hope.
I think the clean sheet will do us wonders. If this is the start of a positive run then it's come at the best possible time.

Let's smash these last dozen games now and get promoted. The worst is behind us.

Re: Nottingham Forest v Leeds Utd Match Thread

I'm actually less concerned with the defence...Wigan scored, so what. Any team can score against any other team at any time. They could be 12 divisions apart. The defence didn't fail against Wigan. I'm happy for the most part with the defence. It wasn't so much the goal itself but the initiative it...

Re: Nottingham Forest v Leeds Utd Match Thread

We all know Bamford will get chances. It really just boils down to whether or not he will finish them. Millwall he did, Wigan he didn't but I'm more concerned with not conceding. The longer we go without conceding, the more the other team come out to nab one and that plays into our hands. A clean s...

Re: Today's Games

I'm not really all that concerned about Forest. watching them play, their position flatters them. More worried about Fulham and Brentford, with the most prolific scorer and tightest defence in the league respectively. That said, we kept Mitrovic quiet and beat Brentford's defence when we played both...

Re: MB Press Conference Pre Forest

The funny thing is, we DO always do things the same way and we DO get different results. Such an idiom applied to this situation only oversimplifies it and ignores all the actual facts. When we lose, we still invariably play well. Doesn't take away the sting of defeat but it's definitely better than...

I'm of the opinion that if that indeed is the case then Meslier should start. But this is only suspicion, we don't know for sure what it is.

Re: Nottingham Forest v Leeds Utd Match Thread

You know, for all that I will defend Bielsa's methods until the very moment they become indefensible, I don't always agree with him either. My personal hope but would be to see Roberts or Shack start while Dallas replaces Alioski at LB. He's much better defensively, Ali is a fantastic impact sub, th...

Re: MB Press Conference Pre Forest

Plus goalscoring is an instinctive thing, moving finding space and not being afraid to miss, you don't coach great goal scorers. Absolutely right, Bielsa himself only recently said (I'm paraphrasing here) that it's difficult to change a situation where we create chances but can't take them because ...
