Re: A Matter of Perspective: Expectations Now and Then

Not just the level of investment but the right recruitment too. Fulham have spent big but aren't doing so well. Having Bielsa in my opinion gives us a much better chance of staying up, if we get promoted, given how he has improved players without the need to spend fortunes.

Re: A Matter of Perspective: Expectations Now and Then

I would say that the style of football they have continually tried to play has been the best since the 70s. The O'Leary and Wilko sides both have some outstanding matches but if we get it right with Bielsa and we improve the playing staff (be it coaching or signings) so we become more consistent the...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wed 23rd Jan)

Given all the players we have been linked with then I don't think we need to fear the squad being too small. Until a deal is nearly done I find it is pointless to even speculate on these rumours as most have absolutely no credibility. Hopefully the injured players will all be ready for the first tea...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate ( Tue 22nd Jan)

Don't get me wrong. I'm immensely proud of what the lads have achieved so far and some individuals have shown themselves to be able to carry off Bielsa's style week in, week out. For too many though, this is too much of a stretch. I'm not going to pick on Jack Harrison here, he's still young and fo...

Re: A Matter of Perspective: Expectations Now and Then

At the start of the season I would have been delighted with a play-off spot. I felt the team was certainly better than Paul Heckingbottom kept telling us it was, but equally I didn't feel it was as good as it had shown at times under Thomas Christiansen. The start we had last season gave fans false ...

Re: Rob Price

Always tricky to judge. Usually the body is weaker after an injury as other parts of the body try to compensate for the affected area and as such it is often easy to injure a different part of the body. Definitely seems a worry though.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate ( Tue 22nd Jan)

I believe it is straightforward as the points I've raised: Harrison is a weak-link & invariably subbed, it's almost like playing with ten men. Phillips is our best defensive midfielder. Pablo creativity is key which has mainly come from when he plays on the flanks. We look better at the back when w...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate ( Tue 22nd Jan)

We were always going to lose games, no match is a given in what is a competitive league. However we lost three games in the first five months of our season up to 29th December then we've lost three of our last four league matches in three weeks so it is obvious something is not quite right. Never a...

Re: 11 Club Count

To be honest all that should happen is the the EFL should ask MB what teams his staff actually managed to observe and how easy it was to observe those team's training sessions and then the EFL should write to those clubs and advise them to upgrade the security detail around their training pitches if...

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

As soon as Pablo went down I knew we wouldn't get a penalty simply because refs seem to think he is a diver, same as the other week where the player stood on his foot and nothing was given. Same as if Alioski goes down as refs have already made their minds up before the match.

Daniel Farke “In general, I just can say we as a club don’t send any spies out and if there is a session behind closed doors we respect that.

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

I remember back in 1990 when we last got promoted from this division and after looking good for automatic promotion we had a real wobble and went into the last match of the season needing a win to be certain of going up.

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

I don't think there is a real need to over analyse the match today. Again boiled down to who scored first and we gifted Stoke the opener. Without that we probably get stronger as the game wears on and force a winner (great that again the lads never gave up and scored in the 95th minute which again h...

Re: Championship 18/19

Not much difference between mos...
