Am I the only one that thinks Nunez is not as good as we think? Before you all start I haven't missed a game in 4 seasons

Believable24 Unbelievable22

He's being to look bad by playing the guy on the left wing, he is a right footed CENTER MID not a Left winger. have ye 4got he got awarded the most valuable player in the Copa America Trophy or what eva it wo, he's a International quality player, giv the guy his real position and more time, STOP getting on there backs....M.O.T

Agree0 Disagree0

Needs to work harder when hes not got the ball

Agree0 Disagree0

Being played out of position. He's more of a withdrawn striker. Reminds me a little of Beardsley. I think he should only be used as an impact player off the bench. That's when he does most damage. Sooner see Sam on the wing.

Agree0 Disagree0

Thers more than nunez thjats not good enuff... think we should replace both center halfs . get some one in there with a bit of pace and can tackle

Agree0 Disagree0

No nunez is good hoew about puting

Agree0 Disagree0

Gradel used to track back wereas Nunez doesn't I agree that he just needs to work on when not got the ball

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree out of position, he had no pace to beat his man on sat, he is more like a david silva, sat behind the strikers is where he would be most dangerous, he did look tired as well, everyone is due an off game

Agree0 Disagree0

Playing in the wrong position- should be an attacking central midfielder or behind the striker! Why is Larry playing him there?

Agree0 Disagree0

I've been to every game this year and seen a couple pre-season so seen Nunez a lot, I think he needs to settle in, it might take him a season to do it. Same with Gradel he wasn't as sharp and prolific at first but after a season he turned into one of our best players. Nnez needs time in my opinion.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not exactly suited for 4-4-2 with the players we have here, unless he's played in the front two. Either that, or fielding a XI with two holding midfielders in it. Simple really.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't rate him. He has been played out of position in his defence, but if Grayson doesn't play him wide there isn't a position in our current formation for him. A lot of people said we wouldn't miss Gradel cos we have Nunez, but he cannot fill Max's boots. The last two games Nunez has been poor. Give Sam a go!

Agree0 Disagree0

Amazing! Saying Nunez isn't good enough for Leeds is a joke! Played in his best position in a team playing the right way he is one of our best players. You have Brown and the under performing Howson in there!

Agree0 Disagree0

Then your all saying Grayson isn't upto it tatically..?

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree it aint his natural position, but for a professional footballer you have to adapt to where you are picked and work your socks off in that position to keep the shirt, for example I hate to mention the 'scum' but take Rooney, in the past he has been played out wide for Man U, not his best position or his preferred position but he still worked hard and often saw him back in defence covering their full backs. Obviously I don't mean to compare Nunez to Rooney, but when he learns to adapt to this new role and put the graft in to get back back to defend then he'll be given the freedom to get forward as he likes. Just as when Gradel first came, I heard so many leeds fans saying he was a waste of space, didn't get back and help the team out, but that soon changed and then everyone loved him when he did start grafting. Got to earn the shirt. M.O.T

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree i think we should play sam on the wing.. because he is a winger! Also Nunez is even greedier when it come to shooting than gradel

Agree0 Disagree0

To the poster above with the team, no offence mate but you wouldn't move clayton out on the left, when he's our strongest CM atm and is a battler no a LM, we need pugh in on the left and nunez super sub MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Just like to say to the boy who put a team on here with clayton LM get a grip . And i agree he is lazy off the ball and doesnt track back or defend enuf

Agree0 Disagree0

I see I have proved alot of people wrong this season. You was all saying macCormac out he is rubbish and I said just give him the chance to prove him self and look what had happened he has shown us what he can do see what happens when we give them the chance and the right players to team up with. Also I think our defensive coach needs the sack.

Believable27 Unbelievable9

Think you'll find that if Ross had his doubters, it's him who's proved them wrong & not you.

Agree0 Disagree0

And what exactly did you do to prove the doubters wrong?

Oh I get it, you told people Ross was a good player. Well done to you. Expect a personal message on the OS from him tomorrow.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm pretty sure everyone was saying this wasgoing to be ross' season. and he's proving that it is.

literally nothing to do with you.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha ha ha great post, well done mate for making ross the player he is today!

The entire fanbase of leeds united and everyone associated with the club is forever in your debt.

Agree0 Disagree0

Everyone knew he was a cracking player pal, and by the way its McCormack not macCormac, so can you prove this doubter wrong and spell please? :)

Agree0 Disagree0

You should apply for your FA coaching badge and become our defensive coach. we need someone smart like you. will you help us?,tell us what to do next, you know so much and are clearly full of it!

Agree0 Disagree0

You're probably the most important aspect of our team. Congratulations on making Leeds United and Ross McCormack what they are today. You saint, you.

Agree0 Disagree0

Please weave your magic on 'billie painter'
oh great one!

Agree0 Disagree0

Can you please now predict that Kisnorbo is going have a great season

Agree0 Disagree0

I think you are amazing. Have you thought of going into football management, or maybe kick Gypsy Rose Lee out of her hut on Blackpool front and read palms for a living. Tube !

Agree0 Disagree0

Is it really true that we have a defensive coach ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi all the is Ross MCCormack and yes its true this boy has saved my career so a big thnak you to him .

Agree0 Disagree0

guys i think we are going to get thumped by man utd, theres no chance their going to play their first team for starters but believe me we are going to concede a few

Believable34 Unbelievable9

They will play a strong team because of what happened last time..

Agree0 Disagree0

To be honest who cares about the cup? As long as we put in a good effort and don't get beat by over 4 I'd be ok with it. The league is the most important competition.

Agree0 Disagree0

Think we might concede a few at Brighton on Friday, just hope we can get a few at their end. This is the way it's going to be by the look of things, Larry's been saying for 2 years about defensive problems amd we don't seem any closer to sorting them out! Just hope there's something going on behind the scenes that might turn things around. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

They wont play their 1st team that would be stupid especially only 2 days after chelsea game, 2nd with kids it will be

Agree0 Disagree0

Man utd bench today Carrick, Park, berbatov valencia giggs , no problem

Agree0 Disagree0

Chelsea threw the game away, Torres proved beyond doubt he is NOT a 50 million quid player, I could have scored from that close to an open goal and I'm in my 50's!

Credit to Scumchester, but obviously they don't play the offside rule at Ols Trafford otherwise it would have been 1-1.

I seriously don't think we stand a chance, and don't car much either way, we need to keep the team strong for the Brighton game and not do anything stupid.

Then again, nobody gave us a chance two years ago either.......

Lets wait and see, but be realistic?

Agree0 Disagree0

We didnt think we had a chance last time eaither but we beat them and overall we have a better team now, theres hope boys MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Just hope its not the same score as ****chester UTD v Arsenal , or any worse. 8 man defence with Becchio and McCormack up front!

Agree0 Disagree0

I have a feeling Fergie will play a very strong side not only to avenge defeat in FA Cup but also to try and match his son's managerial exploits at ER this time last year. Then there will be 2 Fergies who hit 6 at ER.

Agree0 Disagree0

As a big Leeds fan this game has to be a damage limitations exercise, we simply cant be overawed by this game and we as a team have to work our socks off keep calm and dont be pressurised into making silly defensive mistakes.
I believe this is our cup final, we wont get a bigger game than this this all season. All Leeds fans have to get fully behind the team and make ER a fortress it once was.
Come on LEEDS.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets put the reserves team in it for a laugh. Make a mockery of a second rate cup competition

Agree0 Disagree0

No S#!t Sherlock !
Leeds are going to conceed a few - like thats news, when was the last time we kept a clean sheet. Defence has been a long term problem

Agree0 Disagree0

Clayton was excellent yesterday - the best player on the park - dispite having to carry Howson and Nunez who are clearly not up to this level and Snodgrass who seems disinterested. A one man midfield no wonder our defense looks vunerable. Come on Larry where is the quality and steel we need in midfield? Time to drop Howson and quickly.

Believable24 Unbelievable18

Drop Howson really? where have you been living for the past 2 years he may have had a couple of bad games, but he's one of the best midfielders in the league and still young, stupid post.

Agree0 Disagree0

Howson had a great season last year, he is still young and learning his trade. Unfair and inaccurate to say he is clearly out of his depth at this level. It's clear midfield re-enforcement is required, but you'd be better off spending your energy supporting the young home-grown players instead of moaning.

Agree0 Disagree0

Howson has been an inspiration in midfield and as our leader, He contributed 11 goals from his position last term ! your talking rubbish. Nunez has 5 goals in 5 games in all compitions. Larry as you call him needs a defencive midfielder or another center back i would play paddy infront of our back 4 and sign another CB !

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm gonna get slated for this but I think it true - snodgrass , howson and kisnorbo are the reasons we are not consistent and should be let go - they just don't seem to be able to play to their potential anymore - we should cash in on them and get some hard workers in with pace - now I'll wait for the abuse lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats hard on howson from where i sit and thought ady white was the man of the match mcormack a close 2nd but clayton yook his goal well

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont talk wet. Howson was quality for us last season and has started this season reasonably. If u didnt no.... Howson was throwing up against palace last week during the game and has had a virus all week

Agree0 Disagree0

Whoever posted this is talking out of his Backside. Howson has been pretty much a regular performer for Leeds so he has a couple of off games it was obvious he wasnt well last week and you decide he isnt good enough at this level you are an idiot. Howson is one of a couple of our current squad who would more than hold his own in the premiership was that your first game watched at elland road yesterday ?

Agree0 Disagree0

I think the original poster of this must have been one of our defenders trying to shift the responsibility to the midfield.

Agree0 Disagree0

The only thing i agree with is nunez i was at the game yesterday and not for the first time he didnt make any decent contribution cant pass shoots from anywhere and is totally incapable of tracking back and defending. making whites job impossible

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with you mate but no way was Clayton motm. White was world class

Agree0 Disagree0

So a couple of bad games results in you opting to get rid of some of our best talents? Dont talk out of your anus, we have enough with ken bates doing that

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes allowed a few off games, and i dont mind players that pick others up, Taarabt carried QPR to the PL on his own did you hear their fans complaining?

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets get BEHIND our team the more they play together, the stronger it will become?

Why do you have to kick our players all the time?

Whose fault will it be next week?

Praise the positives and stop keep kicking the negatives?

Agree0 Disagree0

We need to sign set of full backs, push Aidy up to LM and drop Nunez. Slot Lees in next to O'Dea or Bromby

Agree0 Disagree0

Man of the Match? It's clear, not even a grey area! It"s a 'black & white' situation... actually it's quite simply a white situation... Man of the Match without doubt was AIDIE WHITE!

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree partly but i just think neither howson or nunez are being played in their best positions, both their best positions are off the striker and they don't have as much as an effect out wide in nunez's case and in the middle of a 2 man midfield in howson's case. Snodgrass is poor though and has been ever since his 1st season here, the guy tries to beat a man 3 times over and messes about instead of getting balls into the box, on the odd occasion he does get early balls into the box we look more dangerous.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wake up smell the coffee. Howson is the most overated player in the Leeds side. If he was not from Leeds he wouldnt get in the side fact. Can only play him if you have five in midfield supporting the lone striker otherwise he is a waste of space and our midfield just gets over run. For me a bench player. Still need a replacement for Brown maybe this finnish guy can do the trick? What do think ed? P.S We still need four new defenders!

Agree0 Disagree0

Howson not good enough, really? Is that why he got called up for the England U21's not so long ago, give the lad a break & give your head a shake!

Agree0 Disagree0

Nunez played out of position, play on the wing with no pace porr management?? howson has been ill, we have all had an off couple of weeks but how many times did he save our arses last season, once the finnish guy gets a good run out howson will be able to play into the final 3rd more where he is at his best.

Agree0 Disagree0

Get behind the team! get behind out captain may help!

Agree0 Disagree0

Howson is a talented footballer, nobodys denying that. but he is not a centre midfielder, his position is just behind a lone striker! so yes he had a good season last year behind lone striker, but as we play two strikers this season, with ross on fire and becchio bk, clayton prem class. so sadly there is no place in centre for me hes no presence there. kiss is to slow and a big problem for our defence.. rb loan lb white cb lees odea.

Wel Ed's Is There Any Truth To The Rumour About A Takeover At Leeds. Cant See It Myself Bates Will Pron Wait Til Prem To Cash In {Ed002's Note - I don't know of anything right now.}

Believable3 Unbelievable9

Expect Ken to be entertaining a number of potential investors during the Man Utd match. i can see us having a new owner by the next transfer window.

Agree0 Disagree0

He better get out. he had a fan thrown out for talking about him and then stuck forks up at some fans he needs to get out!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Said it before so many times on this site. Bates will only sell up after London Olympics once property prices have increased. I can see him selling club in summer of 2013 and making quite a few quid. Bates for 2 more years - I can live with that!
