now i missed much of the game today and was shocked to see nunez on the bench at all let alone for 90 minutes - but now i read he took mcCormack off for O brien
WHAT is this true ? - feck me Larry sort it out amongst you thats a really bad call - even in the context of the sending off ?

Believable16 Unbelievable7

What else is he supposed to do, play with 3 defenders against 4 strikers? You get a grip before posting I'll informed comments

Agree0 Disagree0

O`brien on was due to white being sent off. tactical

Agree0 Disagree0

I see the Muppet has already been put straight

Agree0 Disagree0

I said clayton to full back - and nunez into midfield for howson you person - and its spelt ILL-informed not 'I'll informed'
tell you what, I'll inform you so listen up ...Mr O brien should be at home with his pipe and slippers in the garden not on the bench let alone the field - we LOST due to the coaches tactical switch

Agree0 Disagree0

Take gradel or howson off and put gradel on put clayton at left back - not OB, he's shot and has to go

Agree0 Disagree0

Wish this board was face to face id love to see you call me a muppet stood below me - I will be vociferous and articulate all day when i pay for graysons wages ... and I'll do it freely without insults from you cocky sonny's on here - you go ponder on lorry's and tactics

Agree0 Disagree0

Ooh he's learnt how to spellwere you there, or weren't you allowed out?whatever Grayson did you'd be on here spouting rubbish.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tell you what i did notice, the way Gradel celebrated McCormack's goal...... if you aint seen it have a look utter disgrace quite obviously doesn't want to be there, get shut now before his big time charlie attitude affects the whole team like beckford did....MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Better still he should have got gradel and snoddy to play as half backs because the three defenders he had on were really cb's and left the two strikers on would have stood more of a chance.

Agree0 Disagree0

hate to say it but Larry time to go,thanks for all you have done but its time.

Believable15 Unbelievable13

And who would do a better job... Let's get some more players in from PL before transfer window closes and see at Xmas.

Agree0 Disagree0

At last people are finally waking up and smelling the coffee All his defensive signings have been v poor other than Paddy and he is past ift following the injury.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not sure who,Dave Jones poss,someone who is better tactically and could oranise the team better, the poor run from last xmas onwards and the start of this season not good enough,think he needs a few years to learn, but we can't wait for him.am sorry but we need to act now,

Agree0 Disagree0

F*** off you tosser.....get a life you stupid little man.

he deserves more time.....and we have only played bad in one game out of five.....SG will take us to play off's this season i'm sure of it.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not time for Larry to go just yet but don't think he can afford to lose his next league game.

Agree0 Disagree0

Simon Grayson is making some terrible desicions havin Nunez on the bench again after his midweek preformance is crazy and he really needs to get some dicipline in the sqaud

Believable22 Unbelievable3

Time to go before we get relegated His signings have been terrible and why keep playing Howson when Nunez is in form? We have not had qulaity left back since Dorigo and despite all the players he has signed had on loan this position is a major problem. We have known that the defnec has beena problem and if you look at his signings they have been very poor.

Naylor
Collins
Bruce
Bromby
Bessone
O Brien
O Dea
Connelly

I just cant believe that Naylor and Collins found teams (well sheff u got related and Doncaster will do this year with us at this rate) as for the rest they are not fit to wear the shirt. Unfortunately looking at Paddy he does not look like the player he was. We need three or four quality players now. If needs be sell Gradel or Snoddy. In Grayson we no longer trust MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Nunez playing well but only young and an impact player does not do enough defensive

Agree0 Disagree0

You weren't there today were you, we don't need supposed fans like you. Leeds fans chanted graysons name at the end of the game, we understood the job he's doing. We were the better team by a mile today, and were once again undone by a pathetic display of refereeing.

Agree0 Disagree0

Nunez has got to be better than Howson at this moment in time.

Agree0 Disagree0

Supposed fan like me ??i was just offering an opinion i think grayson is a good manager and back him 100 percent i just think some of his decisions are confusing consindering nunez form

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds fan for 30+ years mate and if you still chant grayson in the stands thats fair enough but you need to take of your rose tinted glasses and relise that leeds are in a right mess,from the chairman to the manager to the players.there was a 5yr plan? at this rate we willbe back in div one before we know it,we are in trouble and the sooner people relise this the better. bates and grayson,do the right thing and go know before its to late

Agree0 Disagree0

"we were the best team" today?? WE STILL LOST mate,the point of playing is to gain 3 points or at least 1 19th in the league and not looking good?

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds were massively unlucky yesterday, again. I was there, and at Donny, season ticket hoklder for 23 years. Whether playing Champs, Europa, Premier, Championship or any other f**cking league.
Why does Leeds have so many armchair fans listening to radio's or reading reports in papers or internet. Who think then they know what's going on and feel they should comment on Leeds. But usually just slag everything off.

Lets get it straight
1, KB is a w**ker, who doesn't give s**t about the club. He just uses it to give his opinions, but we will get rid of him at some stage.
2, SG is the best manager we've had in a long ime and given us more sucess than others, Inc G Mac (as much as ut pains me to say it)
3, Jonny Howson is Leeds he's our captain and ould get ito any Champ side.
4, Nunez has done well in the final third and scord some good goals. Can he work for 90 min, tracking back, doing def job as well against better teams. Don't think so, not yet, but don't think that's his game anyway, but that's what we need we aren't strong enough to carry a passenger in the team (i'm not saying he's not a good att player).
4, The team does need strengthening and now.
5, KB's plan is making sure the club brings in money, hopefully so we can be paying prem wages at some stage is good business. He's just a C**t in the way he goes about it and how he treats loyal fans.

Maybe KB is talking about you lot of armchair "morons". I got to say I agrre we can do without so called fans that just slag everthing off.

Trust in SG and the Team MOT til I die

Rant over

Agree0 Disagree0

Were having a the poor run now, when this rutt is over we'll be play offs or better keep the faith MOT HJX

Agree0 Disagree0

Haven't seen today's sending off,but I did go to Donny on tues night and thought that White was given the run around by donnys right winger,although he has good pace he doesn't seem to get close enough to the player he is defending against,can anyone who went today comment on his performance,is the left back area that still needs addressing.

Believable10 Unbelievable2

I went to the game today, i think he played really well, him and gradel link up really well and his balls into the box were very good. showed inexperience though with the sending off but he is very quick and not afraid to get forward, just needs to strengthen up

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed he is no left back. Another poor decsion by SG. Rapdily losing confidence in him. Doesnt seem capable of finding any decent defenders.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes young its a learning process get behind the lad

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree with "get behind the lad". Think about the options SG has. Paddy not himself so needs O'Dea in centre of defence not at LB. O'Dea no LB anyway. O'Dea done quite well. So what would you rather have? Mr Injured at LB? I think his career is as good as over, Bessone (yikes) or a guy with a decent left foot decent pace but little in way of defensive experience? You might as well play White and hope he learns quickly. It's either that or spend a couple million on a LB. That's going to happen, isn't it?

Agree0 Disagree0

White isnt a left back, he doesnt have the discipline or concentration required however he is all we have got (and is better than bessone or parker) so no point in getting on his back. Leeds need a left back and a right back as well as another defensive midfielder (and another centre back would be good too but live with what we have if we could add full backs and midfield cover).
Had my say on Grayson so many times cant be bothered repeating myself anymore. All i would say is if Grayson doesnt find a way to improve Leeds defensive record (when was last clean sheet) it wont matter how many goals the team has in them.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2011 18:27:55
just a thought
wouldent it be good if samras from celtic on loan

Believable3 Unbelievable21

Idiot we need a new back four At least two full backs and a centre half

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2011 18:25:35
Fact we played well and lost,indiscipline cost us.fact we only have 4 points and 9 behind already.we can't keep saying this.what if we only win 1 of next 3.
I think we can be good enough but we could also be very close to a bottom half season.
Not sure why Nunez isn't playing but we need to sort it quick

Believable15 Unbelievable4

Indiscipline You've been listening to the bulls**t of the FL Show. White was pushed over and yet was sent off. D'Urso is a muppet. Leeds were in full control of that game and D'Urso costs us 3 points. End of. getting sick of crap refereering already cost us Boro, WHU and now Ipswich.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2011 17:26:08
very unlucky today and i agree with larry - first half was excellent - could of been 3 up
next two games are Palace and Bristol city at elland rd ...6 points and then beat GUS at Brighton - be positive - support the lads MOT

Believable17 Unbelievable10

Which is why a clinical bag goals for fun striker is needed. Always make hay while sun shine. 3 up at H-T wouldn't have mattered what Aidy did. We need someone who is too good for Championship level but just so happens to want to play for Leeds and receive less than 20k pw.

Agree0 Disagree0

Graysons hardly likely to say he's inept and should have used his last two substitutes earlier is he.

complete overhaul of ownership and management needed-i use the word management very loosely

Agree0 Disagree0

Larry has no idea, he is crap, lets get a manager who knows what to do, bye bye larry ur rubbish

Agree0 Disagree0

I hate to say it, but you Leeds boys are in serious bother this season.If you finnish top half you`ll be doing well.Whats happend to you?

Agree0 Disagree0

We are going down You deluded people saying we were unlucky. You cant be unlucky every week There are not 3 other sides in the divison with a worse back four than us FACT

Agree0 Disagree0

Without doubt were a decent team not getting the rub of the green at the moment but lets stand by then playing some good stuff

Agree0 Disagree0

Unlucky again get behind the lads playing well just not getting the breaks

Agree0 Disagree0

Jesus... We are playing some good stuff.. Let's look at a couple of things here.. Yep we were outplayed by Southampton away. We would have beaten Boro had we had 10 v 10. We could quite easily have beaten West Ham. Unlucky today. I am still optimistic. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Would all you idiots slagging the team off still be on one if we had won, we according to all reports w should have, no, i dont think so go somewhere else if you can't get behind your team wasters

Agree0 Disagree0

Original postman speakes sense.
Soton a no show
mboro unlucky as ref inept over all 3 reds
tractor boys was bad luck- won't go all season like this, you make your own luck eventually.
Support the boys,WATCH the performance instead of the result,we will be just fine.
I do think Nunez should have been on earlier as he deserves it but hey SG is man in charge and if everyone one here was no two people would do the same

Agree0 Disagree0

Unlucky? if you don't take chances you lose football matches. we deserved to lose for not knocking out an opponent on its knees, top scorer on bench. exactly same with Somma last season, expect another January to April collapse for third season running. grayson out

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2011 16:51:46
another sending off needs to get this sorted can play games with 9 or 10 very very disappointing again

Believable17 Unbelievable2

Also means we get to see Bessone one last time in a Leeds shirt. Yippee

Can't see SG moving O'Dea away from CB. Him and Paddy have looked pretty good.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oii, person head, it wasn't even a red card, White lost balance and fell over, then the black guy fell over him.. And O'Dea played at Left Back today when White got sent off, it will just mean O'Brien (who played quite well in my opinion today) will be at centre back

Agree0 Disagree0

Paddy hasn't looked good all season in fact he's been a complete liability

Agree0 Disagree0

I think paddy has been poor so far, scored an own goal and all he seems to do is push the strikers rather then tackle them and get the ball. o'dea looks good though, try him and o'brian at the back

Agree0 Disagree0

I think paddy has been poor so far, scored an own goal and all he seems to do is push the strikers rather then tackle them and get the ball. o'dea looks good though, try him and o'brian at the back

Agree0 Disagree0

Paddy looks good but anyone see replay? aidy white was no way a sending off..

Agree0 Disagree0

Papa Smurf has to be loving today's cup draw. Obviously tie of the round and will be televised. More money for the East Stand? Making a nice little score with all those other televised cup draws, play-off cash, Delph money, Chelsea compo.

Believable19 Unbelievable1

Not going to be too happy when we get relegated though cos he wouldnt invest inthe team. SG is on borrowed time too

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds drawn to play scum at ER in League Cup.

Time to get Jermaine back

Could be a very good draw for other reasons. Can't see Mad Max wanting to leave before showcasing his talents in front of Fergie. Bound to be on TV.

MOT

Believable13 Unbelievable3

Couldn't agree more. Bigger question is what sort of a side will Fergie field? All youngsters and fringe players? Strongest team available? Blend of both? Personally, I think it will be a blend of both.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds have drawn Man Utd in 3rd round of carling cup, at Elland rd, awesome Source OS.

Believable11 Unbelievable3

Awesome source? all you had to do was look on tv..

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Aug 2011 13:23:31

Would just like to say, glad Delph seems to be finally getting a chance under McLeish...using him in his natural CM position rather than LB like Gerard Houiller used him

Believable8 Unbelievable2

I'd like it even more if he runs his contract down and next year declares he wants to return to ER. If you think about it, from a purely footballing perspective, he made the wrong move. Sure he has bagged the money but he'd have come on more as a player bossing and dictating Championship midfields week in week out, not to mention been much fitter too rather than realize his potential from a handful of token starting appearances and a load of subbies. Howson, Clayton, Delph, Snods and Mad Max would be one heck of a midfield at Championship level and it might just have a chance in years to come at Prem level.

DELPH COME BACK 2013

Agree0 Disagree0

Stop obssessing about ex players. They never come back Anyway we will be in league two by 2013

Agree0 Disagree0

Delph is young and gifted, not like the Ridsdale era guys who some wanted back. I'd love Fab to return and realise his potential back at ER.

Agree0 Disagree0

How about Owen Hargreaves would have played for nothing according to today's paper, ideal for Ken. {Ed025's Note - good shout..

Believable7 Unbelievable4

Don't believe any footballer would play 4 nothing it's against all they believe in

Agree0 Disagree0

I do i think he just dont want to quit and believes he can still play i really think he worth a gamble on like pay and play deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree he has shown that he wants to be back in football, however if he is going to play for peanuts im sure a premier league team would be very interested if this was true. Someone should of used there initiative and offered him a contract way before the 27th of August imo

Agree0 Disagree0

I think he will be a good signing but it he would probably prefer to go to a prem team like qpr or norwich... but its worth a shot

Agree0 Disagree0

Today's daily mail he offered to play for Alex free of charge this season. He also refuses to use an agent so limiting his self to covering his own promotion. I think he'd gladly play for anyone he could use as a shop window.

Agree0 Disagree0

If OH will play for free, he'll certainly accept a pay as you play deal. This means he isn't really a gamble because if he doesn't have it anymore SG will notice in training. Sign him up Could be a wonderful gamble which pays off and if it doesn't nothing was lost

Agree0 Disagree0

With is experience he would be a marquee signing,what have we to lose on pay as you play,the cash from our match with Man U SHOULD be spent on the squad,cant see it though.

Agree0 Disagree0

No more Grella

news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/14685763.stm

Personally, I thought he was very badly treated. All the best at the Bees Mike.

Believable10 Unbelievable3

Sure was badly treated he should have been given a better chance

Agree0 Disagree0

He had plenty of chances and his attitude last season was a disgrace. He went to Swindon with the chance to play and score, decided he didnt like it there and told the then manager Paul Hart that he didnt want to play and wanted to go back to Leeds to not even sit on the bench and rot away in the reserves. That was his chance to show what he could do and then maybe he wouldnt have been shipped out. Glad he has gone to be honest...waste of space

Agree0 Disagree0

Im not sure really he never got a proper chance in the leeds team and he probably got sick of being loaned out.

Agree0 Disagree0

He thought he was better than he was just like kasper. Good riddance I say He was a bad egg

Agree0 Disagree0

Seen This Lad On A Couple Of Occassions He Is A Talent His Movement is second ta none and he has been treated very badly at leeds wish him all da best and will show what he can do with the bees

Agree0 Disagree0

Bad attitude and plenty of chances squad player at best

Agree0 Disagree0
