Those 24 seconds v Manure & Joe's last minute winner are easily the best moments of the season

It was mental in the stadium on both occasions, memories I'll always remember forever!

Never heard of dug out cam before seeing it on here. Bloody brilliant, love it! How it’s not featured on MOTD I’ll never know. Not always a fan of yanks, they don’t half talk nonsense sometimes but I could warm to him after watching that.

Talk about scenes. Say what you will, but none of the team have checked out for the remainder of the season. Rodrigo and Klich flying. out of the dugout, Mes running the full length of the pitch, Dallas thumping the ground, Struijk picking Gelhardt several feet off the ground. Absolute theatre.

Who exactly at Leeds pinpointed JG as a must buy from Wigan? £1 million was it. I think Wigan were in the s**t at the time. Inspired whoever it was

Indeed, and at season end, we might look on that goal as the goal that "won" us 100 mill by staying up.

The 100 million pound kid.
The only thing that’s universally agreed on, as far as I can see, on this forum is that JG is the dogs. What a future he has.

i watched a youtube vid a few weeks back covering pre-season training in August 2020 and Joffy is built like a rugby player, almost a spitting image of a young Wayne Rooney. That's what murderball does for you.

If i can find the video i'll post it in this thread.

He has the right temperament for a forward. Knew what he wanted to do with the header, and didn't fluff his lines when Raph returned the ball to him. Many other Leeds players would have missed under those circumstances.

Each goal and assist Gelhardt gets will only boost his confidence, and at his age could see him progress rapidly. I think he now has 5 goal involvements for us in very limited time (2 goals, 2 penalties won, 1 assist? or something like that). He is key to our season next year no matter which division we are in.

Yes I noticed Struijk pick him up to give him a big hug but when he bounced him down again I’m sure he nearly broke his back!

I think he was already building a bit of a reputation when he was at Wigan so his potential wasn’t exactly a secret. Still we did well to secure his contract with some of the other big boys sniffing around - I think Marcelo Bielsa’s reputation may have been a major factor.

Probably what jarred his back (or the knee slide). He (and the rest of the team) need to start thinking about this idiotic getting injured whilst celebrating malarkey. Hard I know, when the adrenaline is rushing.

For those of you that haven't seen many minutes of him, you'll be pleasantly surprised at how skillful he is with the ball at his feet, fast feet anorl, gonna be a goodun.

Gets right on my chimes Lumi. You are correct about the adrenalin rush but we lost Paddy for months because of his stupid goal celebration first game back after he'd been out for weeks!
