Re: General Chat

You know the Royle Family line Sara? “Hey Twiggy do you want a Snowball” “Na I hate all that shite Barb” “How about an Advocaat & lemonade” “Go on then” The Royle Family was a fantastic sitcom, written by Caroline Aherne, Craig Cash and Phil Mealey. Does anyone remember Early Doors, another fab...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 23rd November) Klich wants out

Thank you Klichy for years of sterling service at Leeds United. If you feel you need to leave and get more game time elsewhere then I wish you well, but don’t be falling out over it. If Marsch doesn’t think you’re up to it then either stay and strive to prove him wrong or just leave gracefully, it w...

Re: Qatar World Cup 2022 - Denmark v Tunisia

That was a big issue for those guys, unlike the wearing of a rainbow armband, that we then bottled out of. It certainly was and good on ‘em for trying to shed light on the iniquities in their own country. I’m glad we ducked out of the armband thing and just wish we’d also duck out of the knee bendi...

Re: Qatar World Cup 2022 - Denmark v Tunisia

How the f**k are Wales ranked in the top 20? They brought on a player yesterday who plays in League 1! The rankings are based on a team’s results and therefore performances and as such are constantly subject to change. The rankings used above are current (probably before the World Cup started) and ...

Re: Qatar World Cup 2022 - Denmark v Tunisia

As a matter of interest (or not) as the case maybe, I’ve done a little calculating to find out the comparative strengths, on paper, of each of the groups in the World Cup. The calculations are based on the current world rankings of each team, which when added together gives a total for each group, t...

Re: Qatar World Cup 2022 - Argentina v Saudi Arabia

I enjoy a good giant killing. Every tournament needs a couple of David and Goliath results and this is definitely one of them. Well done to the Saudis, riches of Croesus but a comparative minnow compared to Argentina in football terms.

Re: Qatar World Cup 2022 - Argentina v Saudi Arabia

I don't think I saw the pens but the lack of consistency this World Cup has been poor. Just have a quick watch of the highlights Cjay, it really is shocking. I wish VAR had to explain and justify their decisions during or after the game. Saudis have just scored again, brilliant goal - interesting!

Re: Qatar World Cup 2022 - Argentina v Saudi Arabia

By the way, I’ve just watch the highlights of the England game and the contrast between Maguire’s penalty claim early on which was not given and Iran’s late penalty claim which was given is quite shocking. The fact that there is a great (possibly insidious) inconsistency in refereeing/VAR couldn’t ...

Re: Qatar World Cup 2022 - Messi time tomorrow 10am.

He is meant to show a bit of impartiality. I don’t see why. The clue is in the name Bolshevik er sorry British Broadcasting Corporation, it televises it’s games for a British audience so if a home nation is playing why not have a bit of partiality? They should be impartial when England play Wales o...

Re: Qatar World Cup 2022 - Messi time tomorrow 10am.

Wales did well in the end to come back like they did, they were second best by a long chalk in the first half. Adams had a great game again once - he was everywhere, but I don’t think Aaronson really got into the flow of the game when he came on, we know he can play a lot better than that, just hope...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 22nd November) £50m Court battle could scupper January spending

It seems to me that Leeds United’s spending ability should not be influenced by a court case surrounding “MP & Silva” whoever/whatever they are. We had a minus transfer spend last Summer, so with three years worth of Premier League Sky money, ticket and commercial sales, surely we have enough in...

Re: Qatar World Cup 2022 - Senegal v Netherlands. 4pm

Good start for England. I can’t believe Iran are ranked 20 in the world, England made ‘em look like a pub team playing on a Sunday morning after having had a skinful the night before. I’ve no idea what that penalty was about other than a presage of intent by FIFA to show that they can, if required, ...

Re: Qatar World Cup 2022 - England v Iran. 1pm Monday

Keep politics out of sport and just concentrate on the game ffs. Quit all this virtue signalling guff and just play football - that’s what your getting paid a fortune for. I don’t think Qatar should ever have been hosting the World Cup in the first place, a nation with no history, or even interest h...

Back in the day he anchored the Masters golf. I was apoplectic that it wasn’t given to a proper golf person.

Having committed myself to watching the England games I’m not sure I’m going to be able to stand watching that painfully smug, puffed up, conceited, hypocritical numpty Lineker holding court for three games.

Re: Qatar World Cup 2022 - WHO WILL WIN THE WORLD CUP?

Infantino has shown himself to be utterly amoral. He never even addresses the concern of fans worldwide over the decision to place the tournament in Qatar in the first place; a decision so obviously fueled by bribery as to beggar belief. What amazes me John, well, in truth, it doesn’t amaze me thes...
