Re: Swansea City v Leeds Utd - MATCH THREAD

I'd settle for a point today.
That would give us a 4 point cushion with three games to play.
We should be able to get over the line from there, either as winners or second placed.

Re: Positives/Negatives v Stoke (1 of each only please)

Positive: Good performance that takes a lot of pressure off the team and manager.
Negatives: Swansea away will be a different match. Still got some work to do to get over the line.

Re: Leeds Utd v Stoke City - MATCH THREAD

Need another early goal from Patrick Bamford.
If we can get another win, that drastically increases our odds of going up.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Leeds United - 1-3 MOTM

Need to mention Patrick Bamford.
That early goal would have settled the players' nerves massively. I know it did mine.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Get three points against Blackburn and everything will look much better.
From then on, the cushion of a 6 point lead should see us home and dry.

Re: Leeds Utd v Luton Town - MATCH THREAD

It's amazing that we are top of the Championship, yet do not have a back up striker or two in the squad who can compete for the Number 9 position.
Dwight Gayle just scored for Newcastle earlier on, and Nketiah is now established in the Arsenal first team squad.

Brentford kick off at 18:00.
They could be breathing down the neck of WBA by the time we start.

Re: Musical instruments

At the beginning of lockdown, I decided to spend my extra spare time usefully and keep myself busy. So I have been practicing the (electric) piano every day.
It has been time well spent, as I can now play "Marching on Together"!

Re: Competing in the premiership...

Well I hope we don't make it to "The Premiership". That would mean we were playing in the Scottish league, or at Rugby Union :) If we do make it to the Premier League it might be a struggle for our current squad. Most of all, we need a striker or two. And I'm not sure about the goalkeepers...

Re: Leeds Utd v Fulham - MATCH THREAD

Pretty non-existent bench with no game-changers on it whatsoever, poor recruitment to blame. Brentford have a bigger squad with more scoring options all over the park than the Mighty Leeds. You are dead right. After Project Restart, the Premier League teams have been picking up injuries left, right...

Re: Leeds Utd v Fulham - MATCH THREAD

We have to keep Mitro quiet. He is the top scorer in the league, with 23 goals so far this season.
Mitro is an old-fashioned centre forward who may bully our goalkeeper at crosses.

Re: Cardiff City v Leeds Utd - MATCH THREAD

Once again, we dominated possession (69%!) and lost to a sucker punch.
This has happened too many times, in recent memory.

Re: Playlist over the last week......

Listening again to some of my old Bruce Springsteen records, after reading his "Born to Run" autobiography.
It confirms what I always used to think. That his music got worse after he started lifting weights.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tue 16th June) Augustin has cost Leeds £82,000 per minute during his loan period

I wish we'd given Nketiah more game time. He's now pushing to be a regular starter in the Arsenal first team.
But that ship has sailed...

Are the Leeds players going to stay overnight somewhere on the way to Cardiff?
Or will they fly down early in the Sunday morning?

West Brom just had a behind closed doors friendly with Aston Villa:

Bundesliga 4 Premier League 0

It's very frustrating waiting for the English leagues to get going again.
