Re: County Cricket Championship

Kent managed to do what they couldn't do last week against Yorkshire and have batted out the final day of their game against champions Surrey. Faced with an identical situation as last week having to face the 2nd new ball after tea with a few wickets remaining they managed to hold off the Surrey att...

Re: County Cricket Championship

A very impressive turnaround by Yorkshire given the first innings deficit of 86, thanks largely to a brilliant 159 from Gary Ballance and Ben Coad's 6 for 52 in the 2nd innings. Fair play to Kent for making a good fist of it today but thankfully the second new ball came at just the right time after ...

Re: County Cricket Championship

Spent about 5 hours cutting grass and strimming today and what with all the playoff 2nd leg thoughts going through my mind I totally forgot we were back in action today in the CC at Kent. Looks like a bang average performance with the bat all out for 210 with no player scoring more than 29 while Ken...

Re: Leeds Utd v Derby County. 2nd leg Semi Final Play Off

I think as far as naming line-ups and keeping injuries a secret, I expect from a managers point of view you prepare regardless for whatever potential opposition line up you are likely going to face. For example MB will have ideas on a Derby side with or without Waghorn tomorrow. When he knows the fi...

Re: Patrick Bamford

If MB feels so strongly about what Bamford did it's quite possible we won't see him in a Leeds shirt again although Ali has played all season despite his dive in the area earlier in the season - can't remember who against. Unfortunately footballers these days have this built in mechanism within the...

Re: County Cricket Championship

In my mid-forties now and have been hooked on watching the game since my school days. I'm a bit of a purist though and it's all about test matches and the CC for me. Really can't do with the smash and slog of 20/20. And I've heard there is 10/10 around the corner. No thanks. Not that I can remember ...

Re: Leeds v Villa

Surely this game will be on Sky. Is there a possibility this game might be switched to a different time or even day if it is? I'm presuming it's a 12 o'clock kick off on the 28th as it stands. Sky don't seem to have their fixtures up for the Championship past April 22 when we play at Brentford. This...

Are we staring relegation in the face again Haighy :( What do you think of Gale? For me the appointment was all a bit "Jobs for the boys" by Moxon if you ask me. He's not really impressed as coach has he? To be fair our top order have been by and large mediocre these last few years. Hell, even when...

Re: Lose at Preston....

I think it's a bit harsh on Brum labeling them 1 of the poorest teams in the division. Yes they were on a dreadful run but don't forget they only lost 3 times in 22 games earlier in the season. Monk was always going to have them up for this despite 5 straight defeats. Let's hope he has them similarl...

Re: Leeds United Goal of the Season nominations

Roofe's 2nd at Derby - Individual brilliance a goal from nothing, back to goal, lost 3 defenders on the turn, boom. Pablo v West Brom. - Just a screamer, was dreading this game, beautiful strike, set the tone for arguably the most perfect display of the season. Roofe's winner at Villa - A goal that ...

Re: High & Wide.....

I don't think you can deny had we had a 20/25 goal striker fit all season we would be top and up by Easter. But we haven't. Just the sort of luck we have become accustomed to over the years. McCormack hit 28 in 2013/14 but we finished 15th. Chris Wood hit 27 in 16/17 and we finish 7th. Both years we...

Re: Leeds Utd v Sheffield Utd Match Thread

Completely disagree. The playoffs are designed so the team with momentum go up. Remember when Brighton finished 3rd on goal difference and Wendies beat them as they were demoralised, while the Wendies were coming in with form. That's what would happen with us. Very true. At the end of the day it's ...

Re: Still hopeful we'll achieve automatic promotion ??

I am definitely still hopeful, in fact I am confident. Same as all season if we take our chances we win matches. With possibly the exception of the 4-1 WBA loss we have yet to deservedly lose a game, Norwich got lucky against us. So if we play even at the worst level that we have played all season ...

Re: Emi Buendia

From HITC: According to the Sun (17 September 2017), Leeds were keen to bring Buendia to England A YEAR AGO with the little schemer shining on loan at The Whites’ Spanish sister club Cultural Leonesa.

How did we not get him?

Cellino either didn't rate him or didn't want to cough up.
