A Matter of Perspective: Expectations Now and Then

There was a point, just after we lost that first game just after new year, where I had to take a step back and reflect. After going on quite an unbelieveable run over the festive period, we lost. It happens. Then we lost again. A bit of a downer but everyone else was dropping points, so not as bad a...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate ( Tue 22nd Jan)

To be fair to the lads, there's not a single side in this league that hasn't scraped their fair share of results so far. That's just the way this season is shaping up. What I will say is that this is the first time for a long, long while that I haven't felt outright dread going into a fixture. I rec...

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

If the lads play even half as well as they did against Derby they'll eviscerate Stoke. And with everything that's happened, they'll be out to prove something. I'm seeing a big scoreline today.

And Derby is in Europe. Even though the inhabitants seem like they're from a different planet.
Now now, just because they like to keep things 'in the family', doesn't mean they're extraterrestrials.

Re: Championship 18/19 - Norwich v Birmingham

Brum are getting swamped in the middle of the park and there's been little desire to press and fight for the ball. That and the passing in the final third has been abominable. Nothing's impossible but unless they sort themselves out I can see Norwich getting another couple. Hope Birmingham are this ...

Ah ok, if that's the case then shame on me for taking things out of context. Having seen some of his follow up comments I think that's the case.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 18th Jan)

Young Clarke is in a special position. He has now officially broken into the first team for a club that looks more destined to be playing in the Premier League with every passing week. And I do think it's destiny. How else to explain the last second wins, or other teams miraculously dropping points ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate ( Thur 17th Jan)

Stan Collymore really is becoming increasingly like a cartoon, and not a good quality old-school Viz one either. More like a cheap Honduran Saturday morning serial. But seriously, he presses play on the same worn-out, tired racism tape (ironically making an over-generalised and unjustified judgement...

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

I'm looking forward to seeing what a difference Kiko makes. As much as I applaud BPF's efforts so far this season and how bright I think his future will be, age benefits a keeper most of all. It's not just the little mistakes that experience helps eliminate, it's the organisation of the defence part...

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

After this evening, we should probably ask 'what's changed?'. The answer? Nothing overtly but plenty in subtle ways. The demonstration of knowledge and preparation Bielsa gave, a seminar that would be worth thousands of pounds in itself, will overshadow the paltry confirmation of what everyone knew ...

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

Perhaps Marcelo could take over Brexit negotiations :lol: He'd have put our sorry excuses for press and politicians to shame and given the rest of the world a crash course in how to fleece the EU out of every penny they have. I'm sure you've noticed by now I can get a bit poetic from time to time b...

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

To say none of us expected this is an understatement. This is more glorious history-making from a Leeds legend-in-waiting. Whatever you might be feeling right now, savour it. We're witnessing something very special.

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

All he's doing is providing the information he would give the EFL for their investigation out in the open for the world to see.

And giving every coach watching a blueprint of how to beat Lampard's Derby.

What a genius.

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

We know Sky will do what Sky does, but any real football fan, player, manager, ex-manager, ex-player, they've just been shown how utterly pathetic the claims of an advantage gained from a bloke looking through a fence really is with all this other work Bielsa puts into getting to know his opponent.
