Re: Bielsa style with cherries on the cake

Balls to that, qualify for champions league first season back up then European Champions and League winners in season 2. Not too fussed about the cups but maybe get the FA Cup too in our first season back up. If Pep Guardiola can do it with his bunch of misfits then there is no stopping us once Bie...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate Thursday 19th September) All the latest news from Elland Road

Morning all. Nice to see we are investing more dosh. I do wonder where it is coming from. It does make sense to have those facilities close to EL, even if it does quash my dream of a brand new stadium built on those grounds. When sportsmen talk about pressure It always reminds me of the oft quoted A...

Re: Other fans forum opinions

That was a nice find Sara.

Re Saturday, our chance to allay the ghosts of that awful 50 minutes and leave it behind us.

It is all going well, it is. Just. That. First. Goal................

Re: Rugby (Egg Chasing) World Cup

Our local cinema is showing the Ireland games free and it is £4 if you want breakfast.

Awful times to be following the games, my missus is a Rugby nut so I will have to pay attention.

Re: Birmingham City

It seems to be a tribal thing with football fans It is, but I wonder how many fans are just conditioned to misbehave on match day. Football seems to do something to the brain.. I bet those Barnsley and Leeds fans who kicked off against each other were on opposing sides at a Rugby League game it wou...

Re: Birmingham City

It is hard to know what exactly the EFL expect clubs to be doing, but in the end they will always sanction clubs when this type of incident happens. If they didnt people would be screaming blue murder. No doubt Leeds and Barnsley will be digging deep after Sunday as well. No matter how high you buil...

Re: Is it Costa time?

On the left for Harrison? I'm tempted on the right, Pablo No.10 and Klich back into CM. That would work, especially at home where we could be a bit more attacking. My original thought was on the left for Harrison, but I’m not sure how tight defensively Costa and Ali would be.. The thing is Leeds ch...

Re: Is it Costa time?

The move for the offside Bamford put in was exquisite, he has the tools to unlock defences, maybe he isnt as useful helping out elsewhere as Harrison but yes I think it is time to give him a run in the side.

If I lived close enough and had the time I would be down their training ground this week with my periscope and my notebook.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tue 17th September) Leeds youngsters run riot

It is great for the club that we have the problem of having too many potentially good players chomping at the bit to get a chance in the first team. It shouldn't be easy for them to simply walk into the first team and if they are good enough they will give Bielsa big dilemmas unless injuries force ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 16th September) - Leeds leave it late against Barnsley

Weasel you started by saying we didn’t suffer burnout then went on to describe our players burning out. It begins in the mind and affects decisions you make which then make it harder for the body to catch up. It affects recovery times between games. It is caused by trying to carry too much too often...

Re: Barnsley v Leeds Utd Match Thread - Shackleton starts for Forshaw

That was a well fought three points.
I think last season that would have went the way of QPR or Brum, but our quality off the bench is there for all to see.

Harrison has improved this season but I wonder if the boss will start with Costa next week after his contribution.

Quite the consequential twenty minutes for Nketiah. Scored the first, created the penalty for the second.
And lets not forget the FC won by Costa John.
