Re: Best Newly Promoted Premier League Side?

Different eras. If we are going to talk about Wilko's side then we have to talk about Revie's side. Promoted to Division One in 1964, finished 2nd (on goal differfence) in 1964-1965. Didn't finnish out of the top 4 for 10 years including two title wins. But in the Premier League era there is an arg...

Re: Leeds Utd v West Bromwich Albion Match Thread - Pablo Hernandez and Gaetano Berardi start in their final game

You’re right, though in medicine nothing is typical and no two injuries are ever the same, even though primary treatment is. Secondary treatment however does vary. Your “years ago” accident with the NHS and KPs ability to tap into the most advanced private consultation and treatment options are a p...

Re: Leeds Utd v West Bromwich Albion Match Thread - Pablo Hernandez and Gaetano Berardi start in their final game

If the report is true then a fractured clavicle is a better outcome than a dislocated shoulder. 3-4 wks recovery versus a permanent problem. I have to say when he walked off he wasn’t carrying his arm in a typical dislocation manner, the arm generally has to be stabilised to prevent excruciating mo...

Re: Best Newly Promoted Premier League Side?

Wilko's was a victim of his own success. The first few years involved promotion, the amazing 1st season in the top flight, and the title. But there was the collapse of the following season. Though the club recovered to finish 5th twice, then there was that Villa hammering at Wembley and another mid...

Re: Best Newly Promoted Premier League Side?

You are correct I think, but if we were to talk about the best team to be promoted to the top division, it would still be Wilko's Leeds team who finished 4th in the old 1st Division 1990/91 after promotion in 1989/90. The Premier League still has the kernel of the top 1st Division sides so its only...

Paddy's beaten his total of 16 last season in the championship now - very well done, especially as he only had one PL goal to his name at the start of the season.

My player of the season - Stuart Dallas. Pablo our best player during the championship years - in the same league as Strachan.

Re: Boardroom changes

One correction to the things Leeds have achieved - "One European Cup semi-final" should read "One European Cup FINAL ". Yes we were (undeservedly) beaten but our old foes Bayern Munich got lucky and we came away empty-handed - again. It was referring to the record during the Revie era Norm. Jimmy A...

Re: Boardroom changes

The main difference between us and Sheff Utd is their lack of goals and their failure to address it. I think their top scorer in their successful season had 6 goals. Their top scorer this season probably has less. When you look at us and Raphina, Harrison and Dallas have all scored more than Sheff ...

We are a club going places whilst others stood still or in the blunts case wasted money on average championship players.

Re: Boardroom changes

Anything is possible Smudge. To have that degree of success a whole lot of elements would have to come together perfectly - the right finance, the right successor to MB, brilliant recruitment and a fair amount of good fortune. It would also require the current top clubs to not keep improving signifi...

Good points White Riot.

Yes, for a time most of us thought that Cellino might be the club's saviour...seems comical now.

Re: Boardroom changes

I think that anybody who has followed the club for decades has learnt from the school of hard knocks not to get too carried away. For example in 1992 ' second season syndrome ' never happened, and the club won the title. Even then though, there was a sting in the tail as ' third season syndrome ' re...

Re: Patrick Bamford

Not bad considering he had one PL goal to his name before the season started.

I suspect that Rodrigo is a more natural finisher though.

Re: Southampton v Leeds Utd Match Thread - Casilla, Cooper and Rodrigo all start

The reality is we have three CB's better than him now in our squad. Another two rash clumsy tackles on the edge our box again which almost cost us. Personally I think that Cooper's time at the club is up. He will always be a liability if he becomes a 1st choice CB with those rash, hot headed challe...
