Gurj wrote: Wed Sep 19, 2018 8:06 am Yes, we wasted too many chances, yes Preston had us on the backfoot for a spell in second half and yes, we could have been better but lets be fair guys and girls, the football that Bielsa has brought to Elland Road is just a joy to behold right now. I am going to the game against the Blues on Saturday and I can honestly say, after 4 decades of supporting LUFC, rarely have I been so excited to come up for a match. Some of the attacking play is just breathtaking at the moment.

Preston were very open, Blues will be set up very differently by Monk no doubt about that at all but if we play anything like our best we should beat them. Cant bloody wait to see a packed Elland Road and roar the boys on. MOT
So Ges & his kids, BB (Ang) & her son, Rich 64, probably Oscar all at the game on Saturday plus your goodself Gurj

We should have a party :beer: :cocktail: :tumbler:

he is going to loose it and then he does a step over and a Cruyff turn and leaves
the opposition completely bewildered... they are thinking to themselves
centre backs are not allowed to do that... those types of moves are illegal
for anyone playing in a back four... we need to put in a complaint to the EFL
that Leeds are not playing traditional football... there needs to be new rules
written stating exactly what centre backs are allowed to do, like heading and
hacking the ball away... fouls should be given against any centre back who
shows any fancy footwork... it makes the game too confusing for the opposition.


When Pontus did those little tricks the Preston commentators were gobsmacked.
They could not believe what they were seeing. Jaws could be heard being lifted
off the floor.
Pontus Jansson's magic, he wears a magic hat :whistle:

WOW - What a great turnout from the MOT Group :-D Be great to all meet up however brief that may be - I appreciate how difficult it can be as people arrive at different times.

I get to Leeds Station around midday and then plan to have a few drinks/lunch before heading to ER to get there for around 2.30pm.

That's better Oscar, you've got Pontus right, he was immense last night, towering at Millwall & cruised the game at Norwich, Jansson has returned this season the same player we all loved when he played under Monk.

Phillips deserved a 9/10 too

KP is our engine room, he shields, breaks up, distributes and creates, he's become a serious player.

Peacock around 12.30, make way to ground about 2.30, is the plan.

Plan is to get to East about 2.30, that could change. A few slurps in the Peacock first.

Just seen the highlights, that ball from Phillips was just perfection for Roberts to run onto, brilliant

If he continues the rich vein of form he's showing now, I'll make a bold prediction '63

Phillips will play for England one day :eng:

A couple glasses of Chardonnay tonight may have fuddled my brain :martini:
