Breakfast Debate The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 29th February) Leeds suffer last minute Cup heartache

Post by Ellandback1 »



Good Morning. It's Thursday 29th February, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road..


Leeds suffer last minute Cup heartache

Conor Gallagher's last minute strike knocked Leeds out of the FA Cup, denying them a mouth watering home tie with Leicester City in the last eight. The Whites gave a great account of themselves, especially having fielded a weakened side without strike quartet Gnonto, Bamford, Summerville or Rutter. If anyone thought that would make them any less dangerous in advanced areas, than Mateo Joseph clearly hadn't read the script. The 20 year old sensationally bagged himself a brace in his first ever start for the Whites His pace, predatory instinct and bags of energy made him a constant threat to a somewhat lethargic Chelsea back line.

He fired Leeds ahead after just eight minutes after Chelsea made a hash of trying to play out from the back, (thanks to Gray). Their lead would only last seven minutes. Caicedo's through ball sliced the Leeds defence wide open, allowing Nicolas Jackson to nip in, get the better of Liam Cooper, and slot home, much to the relief of their under fire boss Mauricio Pochettino. As the half wore on, the hosts took a grip on the game and went ahead five minutes before the break, with a sublime finish from Mykhailo Mudryk; but even after having the game turned on it's head, Leeds weren't ready to throw in the towel!

Farke's men were much the better side after the break. Chelsea were happy to sit back and invite pressure, and learnt the hard way - you just can't do that to this Leeds side. The Whites well earnt equaliser came on the hour mark, with Joseph heading Jaidon Anthony's inch perfect cross across goal. It was a long time coming, and Pochettino had to throw his big guns on, to get his side back in the game.

Just as it looked the game was heading into extra time, and possible penalties, Conor Gallagher's last minute winner finally put the game to bed for the top flight outfit. It was a valiant display, but for now at least, Leeds have more important things to worry about, starting with a Yorkshire derby at Huddersfield on Saturday lunchtime.





Leeds fan hospitalised after fall from top tier

A Leeds fan had to be rushed to hospital after falling from the Upper Tier of the away end at Stamford Bridge last night. An unknown male was celebrating Leeds opening goal when the accident occurred. St Johns Ambulance were quickly in attendance, with paramedics taking over five minutes later, before being rushed into a waiting ambulance. The extent of his injuries have not yet been disclosed, but reports suggest he fell from the top tier onto empty seating areas below.

Shortly before 8pm on Wednesday 28th February, we received reports that a person had fallen from a height at Chelsea football club in Fulham Road. Alongside colleagues from St John Ambulance and doctors from the club, an ambulance crew on scene treated a man before taking him to a London Major trauma centre.

Morning Folks.

Hope the eejit who fell off the edge of the upper section is OK. Did a Chelsea fan soften his fall?

Last night brought Arsenal away to mind in the 2020 season. That ended all right didn't it?

Also a big shout out to Gray and Joseph.

Feels like a missed opportunity. We probably wouldn't have had a better chance to beat Chelski away, and then a team we've beaten twice at home in the quarters. But it was a tough predictament, as I didn't want Rutter, Summerville, Gnonto, Kamara, Gruev all playing and handing the advantage to the dog botherers on Saturday. We slip up and Ipswich will take advantage. But

Hope the fan is ok.

Good performance last night as has been said on the post match thread.
I honestly thought we were going to win after we equalised but it wasn't to be.
12 cup finals to look forward to starting with Huddersfield and hopefully all those rested last night will be fit and raring to go.

How the hell do you fall from an upper tier of a stand? I hope the guy is okay but you have to question how that has happened.

Apparently, the guy that fell from the top tier was Aaron Crawley. The thug that attacked Chris Kirkland 12 years ago.

Cawley was banned from attending Leeds games after the Kirkland incident.

Not condoning what he did, but he didn't exactly knock the s**t out of kirkland.
Worst thing he did was invading the pitch.

That stand is very steep as is the upper tier at Loftus Road, if fans are stood up & there is a surge, they could easily fall over the top. Football stadiums can be very dangerous, especially with the amount of idiots inside them.

He'd have a good case for a lawsuit over the fall. I mean McDonalds got sued for not posting a "coffee is hot" warning

But if he was banned - trespassing I suppose - that would probably negate a lawsuit

The bloke has been abusing his banning order for years, obviously relying on mates to supply him with tickets.
