Early days but Meslier looks an improvement on casilla for me.

Bamford still awful is the only downside, as well as perhaps Costa and Harrison not scoring (Harrison was awesome though, Costa played well too)
second half it was. but lets not kid ourselves hull were majority piss poor and were a broken team.

credit to hull tho they showed a lot of energy and endeavour in the first and tbf i wouldn't expect from any other team fighting for there life's in their cup final but it was always a matter of time for our quality to shine through,

always liked tyler , quality when fit , he just needs minutes and to stay fit !

agree, its nice to see a keeper catch a ball for a change !

It is a title of a childrens book written and illustrated by Robert Mccloskey. Mum would read it to me when I was 3 and 4. The title of the book stuck with me. I think it's cute.

And to think Heckingbottom and Christiansen didn't rate him or preferred O'Kane over him , ludicrous decisions ....to be fair though I thought Heck was abysmall , it was down to Christansen who sent him out on loan , not sure if Heck could have recalled him ( probably not ) ...but maybe decisions that cost both their job as I'm sure Klich would have contributed 90% more than O'Kane to the Leeds cause , especially when you think O'Kane seemed to contribute more to the opposition . IMO of course .
I'm pleased Klich got his chance , fully deserved .

No place to lay down a bet where I live.

I will be putting a nice one down next Saturday, however, and it will be on Leeds 3-0 Huddersfield
Considering the last two games were away against sides that need points , I would have been happy with a win and a draw - kleep momentum up .......two wins though and I'm over the moon .

Thought both Costa and Harrison were really good today. They both show lots of skill and are not afraid to take on their man. I know they're not the finished articles yet, but I can see them being big players for us over the next five years. Dare I say, there are times when I look at Harrison's trickery in the box, and I'm reminded of a certain Eddie Gray?

Again it was TC that shipped him out, Heck would have loved to have had him...4 more Heck wins imo had Klich not be loaned to Holland (has everyone forgotten that)

Maybe ..have you checked to see if he's played in snow?

Norm wrote: Sat Feb 29, 2020 3:58 pm Fantastic result - I sometimes think I jinx the game when I get onto the matchday thread so I've stayed away for most of these 4 we've won on the trot.
Frustrating to do that but hey, if it works, it works. It may just be a coincidence but you know we've just done exactly what we didn't do last year.

Great stuff - long may it continue.
In school I was taught that correlation and causation are not the same thing.

That being said, feel free to continue staying away on match days. :)

A great book. Winner of the Caldecott Award and the official children's book of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Loved it as a kid.

Meslier had more successful passes than any hull player . Lol .

I thought he did very well. Safe hands, distribution was ok in general but a couple of passes went out for throw ins . Perfect time for him to make his debut and the clean sheet will give him lots of confidence.
