Re: Player Ratings vs Hull

It's difficult for me to have an opinion as there's only a few games I'll be able to watch and LUTV's useless for me. I read rave reviews for Thomas and Tate when we first got them and now I've read Tate's useless and Thomas isn't playing when, presumably, he's fit enough to do so. :duno: It's all r...

Re: Comparative Results - 2011/12 to 2012/13

Kyle I'm not disagreeing with your comments here - you have been closer to the action than I have in the last couple of years so you may well be right. Most of the investment from GFH wasn't really put into playing staff though - at least it didn't seem so - probably used to prop up Ken's luxury box...

HarryofOz said: This rivalry between Leeds and Man Utd is really an online thing and a lot of people turn up to ER wearing a shirt that is half Leeds and half Man Utd to show the Northern solidarity between the clubs, so if you want to fit in, you should get one of those and wear it.

Re: Comparative Results - 2011/12 to 2012/13

I really liked Grayson and he wasn't helped by selling Howson (I don't know if he was forced to sell him or not) but he was hampered by a lack of funds. IMO Warnock is no better but he too has been hampered by the inability to squeeze blood out of stonebates. They've both been hampered by a lack of ...

Re: So many regulars not posting anymore !

Not contributing isn't always a conscious decision. I joined in 2003 and stopped contributing a few years later for a number of reasons - not just to this site but to all of them. I came back in (I think) 2009 then in 2010 I became a bar manager as well as a school bus driver - (great combination eh...

Re: O/T Newtown shootings

Guilford White,
I was trying to make the point that it's not the weapon that matters, it's the desire to kill that matters. Machetes, knives, cross-bows, guns, garottes - it doesn't matter what the weapon is, the desire to kill is what matters.

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Kepler,
A belated Happy Birthday to you.
You can keep your hangover mate - I've got one of my own and am likely to get another one in the morning.
Oh God I'll be glad when I've had enough!

Re: Happy Birthday!

Thanks everybody for the good wishes. I'm overwhelmed by the good thoughts 2.5 years after being on here before. I had a little too much hospitality last night (!) and my son who lives near Barnsley woke me with a Birthday phone call at 9 am (3 pm to you). So, fragility rules at the moment but I hav...

Re: Supporting Leeds

I started work 19/8/1963 at Wakefield Kirkgate station as a clerk. The Parcels Office senior clerk was a Leeds fan and lived in Leeds. He asked me along to a game in that year and, although I wasn't immediately hooked, soon became so. Understand that I grew up being a Featherstone Rovers fan, yet pl...

Re: O/T Newtown shootings

I don’t think the answer to this conundrum lies with gun control, although I do agree that ‘military-style’ weapons shouldn’t be allowed to ordinary citizens. Basically, you can kill someone with a steak knife or a cricket bat if killing is your intent. What’s wrong is that too many kids grow up wit...

Re: O/T The Music Discussion Thread

I love parts of ‘The Planet Suite’ by Gustav Holst (Jupiter – the bringer of jollity – especially “I vow to thee my country”, hymn number 294 in the Normanton Grammar School mini-Hymn Book and “Mars – the God of war” – all menacing in a 5/4 beat which would be hard to replicate). On a lighter note I...
