Rochdale v Leeds - Team/Reports/Ratings

Post by 1964white » Fri Jan 03, 2014 10:29 pm

I expect McDermott to make a few changes to the team tomorrow, could be the last game for some once BM makes the necessary signings required

Being linked to Nikki Wells is a mouthwatering prospect :-D

Not bothered about the FA Cup this season, not with a chance at the play-offs.

Hope for a few changes, play football without the fear of losing. That said weather is awful and it probably won't be pretty.

£3M quoted as asking price? Fekk off bratfud.

As to changes - Mowatt is injured (thanks for rushing him back, Brian!), Kenny is supposedly fit (When Cairns could have got some needed match experience) and Hunty may get a squad place, as Ross is carrying a niggle.
"We will play a strong team" says the Egg.

Hunt has traveled with the squad,
3400 Leeds fans at Spotland, where the average crowd is 2500 :tup:

0-2 ....It'll be interesting to see how the fans are feeling about saviours GFH and BMC after a very poor performance
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"

Well this is embarrassing, BMD must take some blame but the players should take the brunt of it.
Forever and ever we shall follow are team, because we're Leeds United we rule supreme!

Dire. Pathetic. Embarrassing.

Beaten by a team 45 below us that not only won, but showed us up on the pitch.

I am not impressed.

Rubbish performance but I want to give some credit to Rochdale who played some very good football and clearly deserved their win.
We're going up like there is no gravity!

After just watching us on t.v play this Mob, can't understand how we are so high up the ladder, we have overaachieved no doubt about it, give me a serve if you wish but this is not a side that will challenge for a play off position spot , we require a fair bit of Player investment.
What is Austin doing in this side? let alone Captain.
No creativity or pace in midfield.
Good night rant over.

Hats off to Rochdale, they outplayed us - especially in the second half.

The goal by Henderson was sublime.
Bates, GFH, Cellino: Same s**t, different arseholes.

Dog s**t. Utter dog s**t. Gutless, clueless and utterly one dimensional. An entire second half of hoofing the ball up to the front men and watching it either mopped up by their centre halves or trickle back safely to their keeper, when we needed to be keeping the ball, pinning them back and putting them under pressure. We were completely outplayed by a Division 4 side. They wanted to get it wide and get it down and play. We wanted to hoof it up to the big, 6' 7" lad and hope.
Dopey f***ers.

F*cking pathetic, well done Rochdale, deserved the win.

Really like the guy, but Brian's got to take some of the blame. The formation hasn't been working, but sticks with it again. Hoof ball. Playing the same team constantly, despite lack of form from some players. No subs until 10 mins left, Poleon and Ariyibi should have been on at half time. Smith isn't good enough to start every game, should be an impact sub. Austin's not good enough, needs to be dropped for once. Poor defending. Etc.

We need about 8 new signings if we want to push for the play offs. Pretty similar to last season, when we had a good nov/dec, before falling away.

We were shafted... played off the pitch... legs like lead... looked like they were playing in a drunken stupor.
The players just did not want it... heads dropping... arms hanging loose by their sides... a team of Zombies
They could well be cast members of the Walking Dead. Pathetic pitiful rubbish. I would shut them out of the team bus
and make them walk home. A disgrace to the shirt.
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.

I would have liked to have seen Poleon, Dawson, Walters and Diouf given a chance today. They couldn't have done any worse. What's the betting it will be the same side against the Wendies next week? :roll:

Warnock was too egotistical and had to go, I've never had a problem with Ken Bates...as well you know.

BMC is an average manager in a high pressure job.. by all means retain him but we're treading water while he's here...and indeed while GFH in their current incarnation are here. I'd rate McDermott above Warnock but below Grayson as manager

I don't pine for anything...the past is another country
