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

Bamford and Rodrigo, for me, are completely different kinds of strikers. Rodrigo the more clinical and opportunist type, Bamford the more hold the ball up, occupy the defenders type. Both equally legitimate, together the complete package and, hopefully, effective enough when sharing our striking dut...

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

On the face of it it’s a pretty good window, probably one of the best ever for January, assuming they all settle in well and perform to their reputation and live up to their fees. Wober already looking calm and commanding, Rutter showing one or two promising flashes (ooh er missus) versus Stanley an...

So is Ken judging by the number of posts he mentions him in. It must be the only time he and Victor have ever agreed about anything!

Re: Jesse Marsch- Faith restored?

Folk keep saying i bring Bert up a lot. Who is this Bert bloke you keep talking about Ken? It must be Bert Sproston who played for us from 1933 to 1938, I can’t think of any other Bert who has ever either played for or managed us. What makes him so special that you keep droning on about him 90 year...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 30th January) - Leeds too strong for League One strugglers

If one of their shots from the edge of the area had flown into the net instead of Harrison's we could well have been knocked out. Small margins. That’s true, their mad Leeds United fan Harvey Rodgers had a couple of excellent chances which would certainly have been taken by most Premier League stri...

Re: Junior Firpo

I’m still far from convinced by Firpo I’m afraid. He scored a goal, beautifully set up by Bamford, but he did have the will and determination to keep on running into the box and finished the chance well. Apart from that though, I saw, and mostly do see, nothing to get excited about. Left back is sti...

Re: Diego Llorente - Off to Roma

I’m not unhappy with this news. He is a weak link in defence for sure and, as I’ve said before, he still makes me nervous whenever he gets on or near the ball. I wonder whether, if Roma decide to buy him, we will lose money on the deal, I can’t imagine that they would be prepared to pay anything lik...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 30th January) - Leeds too strong for League One strugglers

Been away for a week or so, back now! Re the Stanley game, I thought our performance was good in parts and adequate overall. The fact that they, a struggling League one team, had no less than 16 shots shows how vulnerable we still are defensively, but we do look to have some awesome fire-power now i...

Re: Leeds Utd v Brentford Match Thread

2 games in hand now over most of our rivals so it’s imperative that we make the most of them, starting with a win at home against Brentford and a win away at Notts Forest before we face the double header against you know who. On 17 points and only goal difference away from the drop zone, we really d...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Friday 20th January) - Kick It Out: Gnonto chant must stop

I’m sure a loan spell will suit Joffey, I hope it will be successful and that he’ll come back to Leeds a more rounded and better player, he definitely has the ability. Having watched Cresswell in the junior teams he always looked a cut above most of his contemporaries and looked one of the most like...

Re: Max Dean

Slightly surprising to be honest. The fact that he was playing regularly for the under 21s at the age of 18 must show that he had some ability. I wonder if he has seen the strength in depth we (all of a sudden) seem to have in the striker roll, didn’t fancy his chances of ever achieving a 1st team p...

Re: This is nuts

Phillips is a good footballer and proved (as the stats above show) that he was indispensable in Bielsa’s Leeds team. The fact that he can barely get off the bench for Citeh indicates that they never really wanted him for his footballing ability but just because they have the wherewithal to be able t...
