Top of the league

Post by CalliWhite » Sun Aug 25, 2019 4:51 pm

I have returned...love the way we are playing..Enjoyed Take Us Home documentary proud to be part of that. Dunno why Aussie Russell Crowe is narrating ? I have framed photo of Billy with League Cup having beaten Arsenal at Wembley I was 7 and honestly remember that in such detail..Terry Cooper scored and he was the only player wearing white boots.. Feel like club is in good hands feeling confident...dare to dream 100 years back yo Glory Feel lucky to have grown up in Leeds in 60;s & 70's with Billy and the Don MOT

Top of the League is always welcome but so far we have beaten a team who looked like they were just beginning pre -season. ( Bristol) Were unable to unpick a decent Forest side at home, beat a 10 man Wigan, edged past a decent Brentford and finally won easily against a Stoke side who are in complete free fall by the look.

First real test is the visit of in form Swansea on saturday which begins six very tricky encounters, Derby at home ( shudders at the memory) Two trips to London, an away Yorkshire derby, and home to WBA ( who I fancy to push for a top two)

If we are top after that lot then :clap: :clap: :clap:

Or you could look at it like this. We swept aside a Bristol side who have won 3 on the trot since, showing they are a decent side in the process but made to look like relegation fodder on the day by us. We did unpick Forest once and unlike relying on "the hand of Roofe" goal like last season it was quality from Hernandez this time. Forest got the scrappiest of goals and we had clear penalty shouts denied. You can't win em all. Yes we beat a 10 man Wigan but in April we lost to a 10 man Wigan. That's progress! Stoke was as comfortable as the new sofa I just bought. It wasn't the case there last season though was it? Nketiah and Costa are looking really good and will no doubt play a major part later on, it's a long season as we well know. Bamford is finally firing and it looks like we are about to secure KP. It's all good and I'd take been in the top 2 at the international break for now. I think we will have too much for Swansea.

Good to be top, playing good stuff.
But this championship is gruelling. Hell of a long way to go..
