Like when we didn't accept roofes handball goal a while back... Oh wait!
But that was last season so doesn’t count :lol: :lol: but good point, however the handball was difficult to see in real time the pen last night was obvious

haha true, I just mean its swings and roundabouts - some go for you and some against...be interesting to see if edwards gets a ban from the efl for it (I would be surprised if he didn't)

All teams will 'get away' with decisions but WBA have been awarded penalties in the dying minutes of many games this season of which at least 1 (last night) was a piss poor decision and I bet the others were dubious but its becoming very familiar in their games and it was the only way they were going to score as in the 2nd half they were poor and Preston had some good chances to score and WBA keeper kept them in it. Officials at this level are atrocious and more than likely corrupt but what do they care if it stops LUFC getting promotion. Its the only time they referee a big game when Leeds are involved.

plz stop with these ridiculous conspiracy theories about the efl wanting to keep Leeds in the championship - I've never heard anything so ridiculous! Only reason we didn't get promoted last season was because of ourselves...

Tbf WBA fans know they have players who have dived to gain points this season, they have a thread about it.
Pereira did this vs Huddersfield! !! :lol:

And vs Derby Pereira dived to win a pen to save a point.

At about the 5minute mark.

Their fans know it, many dont condone it but is what it is.

They should be 4 points down.

Let's not beat around the bush here guys, VAR would cost us a few points too if implemented, if only for the fact that even with VAR the powers that be are still capable of making wrong decisions. WB had luck on their side last night but if the shoe was on the other foot we'd be no more ready to hand the points back than they are. Between them Bamford and Alioski alone have enough shenanigans to keep the officials glued to their monitors for the next decade so let's not pretend all our players are saints.

Yes, it was a poor call from the ref and yes, the result didn't favour us but let's keep some honest perspective. That door may well swing our way later in the season.

Thanks for that mate. Really enjoyed reading those comments from other clubs' fans and most of them heaping praise on how well we played.

Blimey nearly 30 pages on the Citeh discussing our cup game.

Citeh fans thoughts

Amazed how well Leeds played
Impressed with Harrison, some want him back at the Etihad.
Admiration for Meslier
Leeds would have won with a decent striker
Leeds will be a force in the premiership especially if they taken over by new owners.
Bielsa to takeover at Citeh if Pep goes.
Xhaka should have received four yellows.
The ref Anthony Taylor was awful.
Taylor is corrupt.
Danny Murphy received much stick.
Arsenal were crap in both halves.
Gooners won by a scuff shot.

Norwich forum is a rather weird place but this quote is my favourite.

"Leeds now try and play the way we did. On Motd they say we are naive and stupid but if its Leeds its a different story"

Norwich did play good football but to say that we are trying to copy them is quite funny :lol:

We werent clinical and they were, Pukki didnt carry that team but take Pukki out and replace him with Paddy or Roofe and Norwich would have been midtable.

Norwich - a counter attacking side that soaks up pressure then hits teams on the break

Leeds - a high pressing team that puts teams under pressure.

Not even remotely similar in style.

Agreed..
I wanted to flash this watch, I flash it all the time. It's my antique pocket watch and it makes me look British...and I need that for my analysis. It is a gorgeous gold pocket watch however and I'm very proud of it. You see my grandfather, on his death bed, ..sold me this watch!

Surprised by the level of respect shown to Bielsa, and the disgust at the refereeing, on both Manchester forums, but good to see sensible discussions like those.

Not sure what to make of the level of match fixing conspiracies on blue moon, but it doesn't sound like the standard of refereeing is any better in the Prem. That is certainly backed up by the Cup game.

How Arsenal didn't have 2 sent off is beyond me. The game is a farce at times. I would love to hear Taylor's reasons (4 of them) for not booking and consequently sending off Zhaka or whatever his name is.

This post made me smile from the Chelsea site

Majority of fans watch their clubs like they do at county cricket matches, we have some of our own who sit there emotionless
