Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 10th November) - Cup heartache after late strike KO's Leeds

It was a poor quality game from what I saw, littered with errors from both sides and nobody really able to take the bull by the horns. Bill was our only driver yesterday, comes with experience I suppose but Klich and Harrison as the other old pros didn’t do enough. All in all two poor teams with Wol...

Re: Player Ratings v Wolves - Come on Leeds fans, you were all over the Ratings/MOTM after our Liverpool/Cherries wins.

Lecky’s been off all day so couldn’t post before now, anyway here goes, nowhere near as effusive as faaip I’m afraid: Robles 8: joint MOTM, very good game, commands his area (and the final 3rd when needed) well. Could be challenging Meslier for 1st choice on this showing. Ayling 8: joint MOTM, plays...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 9th November) - Leeds line up bid for Dortmund defender

Hi Paul, as faaip and mc have said (and Jaydog) it is Luke Ayling’s nickname. I believe he’s had it since his Arsenal days - no idea why though but there it is.

If you can find a way to fit “cryptic poppycock” into a conversation with your mates down the pub then I salute you.

Re: Wolves v Leeds Utd Match Thread

A difficult one for Marsch which ever team he picks. If he picks essentially a 1st team, even if he wins there will be fans saying he should have rested a few for the more important game against Spurs. If he picks essentially a 2nd team and loses then those same fans will be saying he’s missed the c...

Im glad Bill is likely to get a run out tonight, one of the old guard certainly but also one of my favourites and I believe he still has a lot to give. Re Bamford if this is what is purported to be Marching on Together it is a contradiction in terms. I will simply ignore MOT and trust less divisive ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 8th November) Leeds have looked mediocre for 18 months

The current fuss about Victor Orta's behaviour is a load of sanctimonious twaddle. The fact is, he shouted something into a camera for all of five seconds, then when somebody challenged him about it, he shouted at them. So what? I would rather have people like Victor Orta at the helm who care about...

[*]I saw in a video from around 2020, maybe Tifo or the HITC guy, that Leeds were just behind the Big Six in international football tourism. I've Googled and never been able to corroborate it. Bit surprising but what an immense asset relative to all the Brentfords and Brightons and so on. Anyone kn...

Re: Qatar World Cup 2022

First of all, the fact that the World Cup is being held in Qatar is a disgrace. This decision was very obviously based on corruption and a lot of the decision makers at FIFA, the crook Sepp Blatter and his unspeakable criminal cronies will have made an awful lot of money out of that deal and have ne...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 7th November) Leeds emerge victorious in Seven goal thriller

Every game these days seems to be a roller coaster, edge of the seat stuff, as the Square Ball say not good being a Leeds fan if you have a dicky heart. I couldn’t watch the game on Saturday but was able to listen on and off on the radio. 1st listen for about 10 minutes we were 1-0 up, second listen...

Re: Jean-Kévin Augustin-LUFC ordered to pay Leipzig €21million as CAS sides with them.

It's not great to say the least even if JKA let's us off. We were paying his £92k a week salary whilst he was here, that is just over £2mil (£2.3mil) for that spell. Don't forget we did similar with Nketiah in terms of wages and loan fee. We also paid Leipzig a loan fee of between £1.5-2mil accordi...

Re: Leeds Utd v Bournemouth Match Thread

Wont be watching live today - otherwise engaged. If we win I’ll probably watch a whole match re-run if I can find one. If we don’t win I won’t bother as I can’t bear to see us lose. If we draw I don’t think I’ll bother either as, to me, versus Bournemouth at home really is a win or nothing game. Com...

Re: Jean-Kévin Augustin-LUFC ordered to pay Leipzig €21million as CAS sides with them.

No surprise to me that this decision has gone against us and, I suspect, no surprise to the club either, we were always on shaky ground. Having an obligation to buy rather than an option to buy in the Contract was stupidity itself. This is another one that can definitely put at Orta’s door, I don’t ...

I remember half the forum thinking Charles De Ketelaere was the hottest ticket in football (11 starts, 0 goals). For comparison, and to enable us evaluate the benefit of "misses" videos, we need a video of all of his misses to see what £30 million plus strikers do. I’m not sure that that ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Friday 4th November) - Marsch could raid former club for Swiss star striker

I’m not sure what the problem is with Gelhardt. Every time I’ve seen him play he looks the part, even with just his regular 5 minutes at the end of games, he can usually do some positive things, and yet, Bielsa and now Marsch seem so reluctant to trust him. Okafor at 22, is only a year or so older t...
