Re: FFP Rules Died Today

FFP is to stop owners pumping money into a club to win honours. Remember Jack Walker at Blackburn, he bought them the title. Its not about how good the club is, nor even about how profitable the club is....the title goes to the chairman who pumps the most money into their club, or at least their cl...

Re: FFP Rules Died Today

Always been the way hasn't it? Owners sponsporing the team's shirts, naming the stadium? I genuinely don't have an issue with owners piling money into clubs if they can afford it. What I do have an issue with is owners leveraging debt against the club, doing a runner and then them going into admin....

Re: Marcelo Bielsa, The kind of man people name stadiums after!

This is why I tend to bite my tongue when just because we haven't scored for 20, 30, even 90 mins in yesterday's case, some folk say we didn't play well. Yes, there are definitely certain periods where things aren't quite clicking but these aren't actually that often in the space of a match. To say...

Re: Marcelo Bielsa, The kind of man people name stadiums after!

Hard to believe when we were on our bad run, folk were questioning his abilities, some even stating it may be time for him to go. Remember, they said, he's never won anything, he has no plan B, and is too loyal. Sadly in today's society so many people seem to think they are experts at something des...

Re: Illan Meslier 

Never heard anything so ridiculous as the suggestions he should try to clear his name. How on earth would he do that given the lack of evidence used to 'convict' him. The only 'proof' was what 2 players said they thought they heard. So short of them changing their minds it is impossible to overturn....

Re: Swansea City v Leeds United - 0-1 - MOTM

Does not Klich make Hernandez better? ..Phillips also? It's a three, take one out and the other two are lesser. And that in a nutshell is why Bielsa doesn't chop and change when players have dips in form. He knows that players like the familiarity of playing with the same players week in, week out ...

give the opponents a
glimpse of hope... raise their expectations, and then at the death snatch it away from them.
Sadly this seems to have applied to us, rather than our opponents, over the years. The match v Derby last season seemed to sum up what it is to be a Leeds fan.

Quite often I find myself wondering if Graham Smyth and I watched the same game.
I have stopped reading the YEP articles by him. He comes across as someone who doesn't really understand football.

Re: Positives/Negatives v Swansea (1 of each only please)

Positive - A very mature performance from the players - they realised a point would still be a good result and generally didn't leave themselves open to a sucker punch goal. Contrast that to a year ago when we were 1-0 up and a man up against Wigan yet somehow conceded goals on the break. Negative -...

Re: Today's Games

Since lockdown it has certainly been interesting. WBA have looked a bit scratchy in most games and now are definitely beginning to feel the pressure. Fulham it seemed couldn't handle the pressure and only started winning when it looked like their chance to get an auto place had gone and the pressure...

Re: Today's Games

Watching the Derby v Brentford game and it shows how spoilt we are to see the type of football we are producing under Bielsa. These 2 are a million miles from us in terms of how they play, Watching a Derby attack break down as they pass the ball like a hot potato and then see their players ambling b...

Re: Today's Games

Derby showing the same appetite they did against WBA. Looks like Bees will probably keep on winning. If we do the same we'll go up with a win at Derby a week tomorrow 😁 Derby players probably saving themselves for their upcoming cup final. I think most Derby fans would probably be happier if they b...

Re: Leeds United v Stoke City - 5-0 - MOTM

Pablo did say less then 2 weeks ago that he wasnt over his hamstring injury. We know he has dodgy hamstrings anyway so maybe MB is managing him? He brought him on and took him off in the same match before, suggests to me he is being managed to protect him. 90 minutes a week is basically what Pablo ...

Re: Today's Games

Huddersfield losing 2-0 at home to Luton - Huddersfield in real danger of dropping into the relegation places if their form continues.

Luton's form since lockdown has been terrific apart from a 5-0 defeat to Reading in the match after playing us - seems like they tired themselves out against us.

Re: Leeds Utd v Stoke City - MATCH THREAD

I was a bit disappointed with the England comparison if i'm honest. Bielsa has shown what can be achieved with a team with mainly british players. All my life I wanted to see Leeds play the way we play now but wondered if it simply wasn't possible with british players given how poorly the british t...

Re: Leeds Utd v Stoke City - MATCH THREAD

Stoke may not be the best side but they have drawn with Brentford and beat Fulham and WBA this season. Typical Championship for you. Like when people were aghast after we drew against Luton yet they had beaten Brentford. Not much difference between most teams in this league. We are head and shoulde...
