It is indeed. Ain't they all these days? I think five of our next seven games are on Sky tv.

Hope the only way we response to this "everyone is out to get us" feeling is on the pitch. Use it to galvanise the team spirit and win games. No point accumulating cards and punishments that in the end are only going to hurt us. Lack of discipline contributed to our unravelling last year.

The fans can use it to get to the games, sing their hearts out and never give up, not by throwing stuff on the pitch .

Even Bielsa changing in the heat of battle, contrast the non applauding, bucket sitting coach against Stoke with the reaction against Brentford. Love the passion, but let's not help the detractors by shooting ourselves in the testicles!

Agree Spanish, the throwing of coins and bottles etc was stupid, that sort of thing I thought was consigned to the bad old days. Does us as a club no good what so ever.

Well said young Spanish, and don't expect any penalties this season (again) now we've gone 50 up and it's been well-publicised the refs won't give any in case they are looked upon as giving a "soft one"

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Oct 2018 20:34:02
Agree with you all on this, the bottles and coins throwing is just giving the FA and FL more reasons to have a go at us. I love to see our passionate support, but let's avoid this sort of behaviour.

It's the South Stand wannabes, the ones that have the LU Service Crew stickers on their cars that were chucking stuff, hopefully they will have been picked up on CCTV and banned.

Lol Al. True. They’d wet themselves had they been around in the eighties and early nineties. No place for it anymore, so in total agreement with everyone!

I thought the England team would of held onto their lead with a stronger holding midfielder. Time for KP to be called up.

Agree3 0Disagree

16 Oct 2018 10:53:51
I think it was the thought of the whole team being under threat by versatile kp that lifted them to victory.

very busy in rehearsals for The Greater Game which I shall plug soon. so no comment from me. but I shall sleep tonight muttering KP's name followed by england call up grrr.

Ooh BW, surely you're not going to be plugging a play called "THE GREATER GAME" on here are you? I, for one, already give it 5 stars. Don't forget folks " THE GREATER GAME" in a theatre near you soon. ;)

Watched the Vinnie Jones, Gascoigne talk sport show. Wasted an hour really and forgot how much a tit Vinnie can be. Poor Gazza hasn't got a clue and Jones boasting about his success. Sad really. And I'm sick of Leeds fans saying Jones could play. He really couldn't play at all. c'mon he made Chris Kamara look like Sheridan.
If he was anyway decent, Wilko would of kept him after promotion but couldn't wait to off him to Sheffield.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Oct 2018 22:35:52
I like Chris Kamara. So blank, he's funny.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Oct 2018 00:50:58
A bit harsh, with respect. Yes, Vinnie couldn’t really ‘play’ in one sense, which is no doubt why Wilko replaced him with McAllister when we got promoted. But IMHO - he - or a player like him - was what we needed then and dare I say now to help take us up. He was central to our promotion in 1990. Tough, physical and noisy - and prepared to read the fortune of those opposition ‘hard men’ who targeted his more skilful colleagues. Is anyone really looking after Saiz or Pablo in that way at the moment? And Gascoigne? I wonder what Southgate would have given to have a player of his creative calibre available to him at the World Cup?

Agree3 0Disagree

16 Oct 2018 00:58:57
Ps. And sorry - but I’m on the scotch - Pontus clearly should not have sworn on live tv bearing in mind who may be watching - but for a panel of ‘experts’ to be unable to decide whether Canos head butted Alioski is ‘odd’. My 8 year old asked - ‘why did he do that Dad? ’.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Oct 2018 01:53:21
Wilko said that letting Vinnie go was one of his big mistakes.

Agree manston. Vinnie was important for our promotion and he could play a bit too, when he wanted to.
Exactly Stafford.

16 Oct 2018 13:29:52
And Vinnie only got 3 yellows in our promotion winning season. How he got away with that beggars belief.

Yeah BIGE, another one that used to amaze me with how hegot away with rugby tackles was the (almost) legendary Gunner Halle :)

17 Oct 2018 17:28:46
Loved Sir Vincent! Wilko brought him to sort out dressing room issues, which he did almost immediately by chinning Bobby Davison, who Wilko saw as a trouble maker. I think it was his debut, when he came on as a sub, so fired up, he charged on, caught his studs and fell over! Loved his pre match Hawaii Five O rowing too! Character!

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Oct 2018 16:43:50
So as we thought, Canos gets off scot free for violent conduct and Pontus gets charged for a few words in the heat of the moment when a mike was shoved
at him. EFL with double fricking standards yet again when Leeds involved

Grrrrrrr!

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Oct 2018 17:36:57
A foregone conclusion really, we are Leeds :)

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Oct 2018 18:28:29
We should challenge them over the canos incident by asking for a soliciter and an independent panel to look again and threaten legal action.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Oct 2018 19:04:17
Totally agree lads, no doubt he will receive a ban for this as speaking out about the referee is far more dangerous, no, more serious than a headbutt . Any reason to punish us, surely the referee should be done for fraudulently masquerading as a referee.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Oct 2018 19:26:49
Any mention of our minimum 15 point deduction yet? We know tis a foregone conclusion, no need to go through the formalities. We might as well bend over the desk and drop our pants now.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Oct 2018 19:38:16
The whole situation beggars belief, but not when Leeds United are involved. We have always been hated by the FA and FL since Don Revie's days. The Brentford player having no case to answer was just another opportunity for them to put the boot in. Leeds United bashing is still alive and kicking at the FA and FL.

Agree2 0Disagree

16 Oct 2018 01:56:59
Something I don't understand is the "disciplinary panel" looked at the game, and regardless of taking or not taking action against players, why is there no action against a completely inept referee?

Agree4 0Disagree

17 Oct 2018 15:33:24
Oh and another thing, I know that there's an obligation to have a camera and mic shoved in a players face straight after the game but do they have to say anything, a load of "dunno" "didn't see it" "no comment" should suffice :)

Went to watch england game last night at Buzz bar tenerife. On arrival in my nice new leeds home shirt a voice from behind me said "you can't wear that in here" I looked round to see a table of 6 young lads. I said oh yea! So who, s your team? He replied 'wednesday" oh so you too embarrassed to wear your shirt then son I replied. Think it got to him as every other table erupted with laughter. Funny they left 20 mins into game.

The Wendies Supporters Club on their annual away day, are you sure there were as many as six?

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Oct 2018 14:01:39
6 at the table but can't say for sure if they was all wendies as there reluctant to wear their shirts. Might of been one and his 5 body guards lol. There was a table of Stoke fans and let me say they was top top lads. Had good friendly banter with them for almost a week. Bit soft tho like their team as we went on the boxing punch bag in the sports bar and I won it by slapping it. Put a few noises out of joint watching young uns giving it everything with their punches only to be outdone by a 52 yr old slapping it.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Oct 2018 13:02:03
I imagine one of your slaps could knock AJ out Martyn.

Not what it used to be but still felt good showing young uns how its done. Was all in fun alf they were good lads proud of their team but not cocky.

16 Oct 2018 15:54:46
Living not far from Stoke I think they are probably the closest to us, good old-fashioned fans.

This is the weirdest England game I've ever seen. No crowd, no atmosphere, almost no interest.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Oct 2018 09:04:58
Can’t believe Croatia got to final!
Worst team to appear in World Cup final I reckon. Boring and lucky. Spain had the class to expose them. Obviously we didn’t.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2018 10:06:52
it was like watching an U18s training game (Maybe that does a disservice to the U18s? ) Maybe, also, this shows that watching England could be 70% noise and atmosphere and only 30% actual football.

Under 23s, good run out for Roofe and Beradi. Roofe put us 2-0 up and we should have had the game wrapped up with the possession and chances we had. Let them back into the game and they took their two clear opportunities. Roofe was played on the wing, beradi left back. Clarke bit of an off day but we didn't get the ball to him much, moved him to centre forward when Dalby came off and he had a couple of opportunities. Shaunessy down to play but went off in the warm up. Baker, some nice touches, quite a few didn't come off. Always feel he should have more impact on games at this level and doesn't quite do it. Forshaw played the full game Diaz looked good with the ball and a good partnership with Struick until the errors crept in during the second half. 2-2.

Agree3 0Disagree

13 Oct 2018 00:50:38
Thanks for the post Spanish
Good to hear Berardi roofe and Forshaw are back. They have another week to recover yet. Expect all to start next game. Shame we only drew though!

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Oct 2018 06:15:53
After our second goal we didn’t play with the same intensity. Forshaw looks fine. Beradi yellow carded and lucky not to receive a second, so back to his feisty self. I think the result reflecting the the fact, probably quite rightly, that the stability of the u 23 team has been effected by the promotions into the first team squad, Shackleton, Clarke, Edmundson, the first team era looking for match fitness and international break. The team is now changing a lot.
The talking points from yesterday were, Beradi and Shackleton lb and rb, in that order, perhaps an experiment? Roofe on the wing, possibly just a less rigorous introduction?

The defensive 4/ 5 of this team looking good, normally, Robbie Gotts, Leif Davis rb/ lb and then Diaz/ struick / appo Co options.

Corberan not happy with losing the two goal lead. Bielsa there for the whole game with virtually all of the coaching team.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Oct 2018 08:00:39
Food for thought there Spanish.
Lots of interesting scenarios.
Love bs involvement. A very thorough man.
He does inspire confidence even if some players don’t.
Onwards and hopefully upwards!

Thanks Spani, interesting reading.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2018 11:45:51
know we have to give first teamers a run out after injuries and such but when half the tea is from the main squad think it loses a bit of enthusiasm. The celebration of the goals sort of showed that. Understand Bielsa uses matches to try different things with players but i enjoy it more when the likes of Kamwa and Stevens are in there battling for a first team spot. Nice to see first team play on the cheap but would rather see 2 or 3 at a time. When over half the team is out its a bit of a training match for them.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2018 15:46:33
Fair point Bige, you could see that after the second goal went in. It effects the comradarie of the team. Interestingly there is a rule that you can only play three over 23s! It shows how young a lot of our first team squad are because they can creep in under the age rule.
