They have a proper plan.
The thing is though that they have less expectation so the clamour to sack a manager after a few bad results isn't like it is at Leeds and that allows the manager the time to develop the squad he wants, even if he has to sell his best players each year.

It's completely unsustainable though. It's something like 177% of turnover spent on wages.
I promise to be positive only for 20/21 :)

Deservedly after the best performance of the weekend

Long way to go yet however that stunner is very encouraging for all us Leeds fans

I was one of only four players on our Leeds Correct Score competition to predict a Leeds victory :P :victor: I suspect the majority of our fans will have a change of heart for our next game

I really wanted to predict a win but held myself to predict a 2-2 draw.
Next time I will give my innermost thoughts the nod.

Pulis met him and found out he was only 5' 10" - went off him straight away.

I take it they're the midweek games when we play Swansea but to have just these 2, 2 weeks before the rest of the games is weird, as you say.

Wendies put under transfer embargo. This has annoyed me since they cheated us out of a playoff place when they knew very well they weren't playing fair. Should be a points deduction.

Boro 3-0 Sheffield United
Forest 1-1 WBA.

Watched Forest and WBA.

WBA were poo for 90% of the game, Forest decent without making tons of chances.

Saw the best ever shot that didn't go in from Guedioura.

And Forest very nearly lost it in the last 10 when WBA woke up, last 10 mins were good.
