Re: Berardi - You’ve seen them given

Well what a very poor piece of officiating, Millwall v Leeds United. Leeds will win their appeal against a red card. It was not a penalty kick, a clear act of simulation. Then to say it was denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity is just stupid. I would sit this ref on his hands for a month. — KE...

Re: Perspective

I must admit the last thing I would want to do before playing football would be a coach journey.

You would have thought they'd go down the night before, stay at a hotel, have a leisurely breakfast and then go the ground. Is this not the case?

And just to put that post in perspective, when we win, play we'll and score goals I quite happily come on and say so. 🤔
And when we lose, play sh*t and concede a bucketload of goals I will quite angrily come on and say so.

Re: Perspective

Still doesn't getaway from the fact we were poor at Charlton & Millwall, places we should be picking up points Chilli. Lose another 8 or 9 games against this type of opposition & we won't be going up come the end season, quite honestly we wouldn't deserve promotion Hard to say we were poor against ...

Re: Perspective

We are getting good at writing off defeats What I mean by writing off defeats is that sometimes defeats just happen because of bad luck or bad refereeing. You can play well and lose, you can play poorly and snatch a win. Take our draw with Derby and after the final whistle blew who would have been ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 7th October) Is it time to press the panic button?

But why do you think this happens Sprake? What have we done to deserve such treatment? You go back to 1964....it was 1970 when I became besotted with this club and I've witnessed some shocking treatment of us as well! This is why I am such a fan of VR as it will hopefully remove poor refereeing / c...

Re: Perspective

Bielsa is Bielsa and I am convinced that the team he put out for the first game of the season, if all available, would be the team put out for every game no matter how they performed ! We just cannot win anything with that approach ! Come on Bielsa MANAGE the problems !! So you are saying Bielsa sh...

Re: Playoffs is our destiny

Unless there's an injury crisis the signings simply won't come into the team straightaway and at the very most will be coming off the bench trying to make an impact. Casilla, White and Douglas are the only signings we have made during the Bielsa era who have gone straight into the team, Douglas wen...

Re: Ben White

Although he did give the ball away in our box late on in the match under a bit of pressure - probably the first time this season. Hope this guy signs permanently for us, failure to get promoted would see him got he same way as Dan James.

Free the Berardi Bear. In my eyes his last 2 reds have both been down to awful refereeing.

Re: Perspective

Some fans seem to expect us to win every single game and win them comfortably too. Yet the same fans will lay into all the players after a defeat claiming they aren't good enough - yet still expect those players to win every game with ease. My point was that even a ridiculously good Juventus team, c...

2005-2006 Juventus Series A Champions. After a scandal they were then stripped of the title and actually relegated to Series B - the Italian version of our championship. They still held on to several of their star players - Buffon, Nedved, Del Piero, Zanetti, Boumsong, Chielinni, Trezeguet etc. So e...

And who would have thought that Man City would lose their 2nd game in only 8 league matches, having also drawn 1 too, against vastly inferior teams. It shows what football is and that even City who play a similar way to us but with vastly superior players are not infallible. Miss your chances and th...

Re: Bielsa mugged by novice/average managers

All depends on perspective. Take yesterday and if you take the match after the penalty then for the rest of that match the 10 men of Leeds drew 1-1 with the 11 of Millwall. Take the defeat to Charlton and how many saves did Casillas have to make? Take the Swansea defeat and again Swansea score with ...

Re: Playoffs is our destiny

Certainly valid points but we need to be careful not to jump to wrong conclusions. A couple of weeks ago the whole attention seemed to be on our home form whilst the away form was brilliant and people were saying we found it easier playing away. A couple of lethargic away performances where we have ...

Interesting to see no mention of punishment for any of the other players who also stayed out drinking against the club rules including club captain Keogh.

Re: Millwall v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Well I noticed against WBA that when they had a corner there were some positioning that I had never seen before... two Leeds players standing about 5 yards apart and 10 yards from the corner flag. I used to deploy a similar tactic where we had one player stood 10 yards from the corner flag and the ...

Re: Millwall v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Worried after MBs comments today. He will replace a left sided cb with a right back, that immediately impacts the balance imo, left side cbs should be left footed. Berardi will be against Matt Smith, he will batter Berardi in the air and shoulder to shoulder. I wouldn't worry too much about Berardi...

No but they have so much quality in their ranks to overcome such problems We're obviously not in position to cater for so much quality but looking at our summer activity I can't see where we even tried to cover certain key positions, it was a one in one out scenario ! Really??? That's why Liverpool...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 3rd October) Leeds stars out for 4 and 6 weeks respectively

Alright we have been in the top two for much of the season but this is the weakest championship in many seasons as proven by the fact the top two have only won two of their last five matches but still remain at above the other challengers. We haven't anyone who can lace Pablo's boots, the same with...
