Great to read everyone’s views as always. This league raises more questions than answers, definitely the toughest league in Europe where anyone really can beat anyone. Lots of views on here about us requiring better quality players and reinvestment of the Taylor/Wood funds.

Well I honestly believe none of us would have been very happy if we had signed anyone from either Sheffiled United or Cardiff squads before the season started but look where they are now. Then contrary to this sits Wolves who spent biggest of all and ‘should’ be there or there abouts at the end of the season. then they lose to QPR! As people have said, we were lucky with results today, with only Bristol City leapfrogging us.

Yes, same Bristol City we spanked at their home ground only last week. Then you look at our individual players with many supporters saying Phillips just not up to the required standard, not certain is my own view BUT I know he ran and ran last night, so then you think is that it? In this league every single player must have to be fully 100% on their game every single week? Said it was more questions than answers, then it struck me! I can’t that’s no like previous seasons anymore bloody hell I’ve got to improve !

This is the easiest championship for at least 3-4 yrs. not tough at all! I haven't seen a decent team yet. Last year there were 3-4 standouts. Every team that has beaten us has been poor and teams we should have beaten.

The full back positions and who plays and what side they play has generated an incredible amount of debate. There are the rumours that possibly the left back position may not be ideal for Berardi?

Then will Charlie Taylor stay ? Lots of things in the air and although we do have a couple of promising youngsters in the team at present in Coyle and Denton. I would like to see the club make a brace and proactive step in appointing a world class coach just for the full backs.

To appoint someone who has had an amazing professional career in the full back position and someone who could utilise a near perfect marriage of coaching and playing experience to make us 'world class' in the full back positions. The guy is currently Head of Male Football at South Gloucestershire and Stroud College

feeling really fortunate as i already know we will win tomorrow! not a single grain of doubt in my mind. have already added the points to the table and visualised what tomorrow's win will do for the players confidence. we have the best management team, certainly the best supporters and tomorrow will show. the best team in the division bar none. i don't hope so, i absolutely know so mot 👍.

Wow some prediction. Hope your right class because if not your going to look. Well you get the the gist. Don't underestimate any team in this division. They already said they wanna do us for there fans as a thank you.

3-1 win tomorrow we are due and Monkeys return will be that much needed added incentive MOT

Half the team don't know monkey. Makes no diff to them. i'm sticking on 1-3. Tc sacked.


2.) 19 Nov 2017 09:01:46
You surprise me Aus, but I appreciate the playing staff is very different from monkeys time. I was referring to the positive intent and will come no from our magnificent home support to put one over on our very own pantomime villain. I for one am glad it’s boro and Monkey, the players will at least have an understanding of the importance of beating the opposing manager for us supporters. With regards to TC being sacked I still don’t see the better candidate to replace him just now? Tony Pulis, May soon be an option, may not be pretty to watch but I’m sure there would be plenty of fight?


3.) 19 Nov 2017 09:51:41
I would still fancy Sanchez-Flores if we needed a replacement.

Isn’t it funny normally the word ‘break’ has positive connotations. tea break, weekend break, marital 😊 But put international in front of the word and I want to scream! One of these breaks things we were too of course he League and flying and wondering if we could maintain it Doh! This time we are wondering if we can return to what we had before ? But blooms by eck have we had more breaky things than ever this year? Rather have Leeds games any day than these blooming international money making schemes but ho hum and best wishes to Stuart Dallas this evening top bloke hope he gets to go to a World Cup

Just read my own post back, like to say it’s all down to autocorrect on my phone. I’d like to say that but the seven hours in spoons earlier probably contributed more 😃


2.) 10 Nov 2017 07:46:35
what about a leg break or relationship break or heart break? They are not too positive. get your point about the international break though, however, i'm not as bothered as usual this time - at least it saves us from having to endure another defeat!

Best young keep keeper I’ve seen for many a year Simon Walton Brighton’s young Keeper currently on loan at Luton Town, guy big brave and commands his area, any other candidates fellas?

1.) 06 Nov 2017 08:25:06
didnt he used to play for us in midfield?


2.) 06 Nov 2017 11:26:30
Yea he grew 12" and lost ten yrs alf


3.) 06 Nov 2017 11:57:25
Let's not throw the baby out with the bath water. I agree Lonergan made 2 errors but by dint of his position they were glaring and costly but those aside I think we would all agree he has done okay for us overall. Remember outfielders can have a rick but play thro it, and have 9 others to cover for him. Come January there are far more important positions to fill with our finite resources. Let's persevere for the season and trust that BPF gets lots of game time on loan (hopefully behind a leaky defence) and that he returns a more rounded and learned keeper. The answer to our prayers.

Such fine margins! Ayling should score to bring us level then they go up the other end and get a third. We need two keepers, neither are the standard needed for this division and their basic individual errors have been to blame for the majority of the losses. So tight in this division but I don’t think Radz is a man to swing the axe so early in the season. God I hate losing but there was effort throughout (lonners aside) and we looked a lot better with Roofe up top. We need a complete spine in January Keeper, Centre Back Midfielder and ‘mobile Striker’

Classof92

1.) 04 Nov 2017 19:50:40
Agreed, gayle would get us goals


2.) 04 Nov 2017 19:50:58
Grot and lassoga are not what we need or want. Quick, mobile and brave. Think off anyone ? 😂😂❤️


3.) 04 Nov 2017 19:53:57
Sorry classof92 but AR needs to swing the axe now, TC has shown that he cannot motivate this team or change things, we cannot even get a draw from games.


4.) 04 Nov 2017 20:18:41
Hi Mezzer my belief is Radz is not the type of guy to swing the axe, he talks about ‘the project’ being a long term strategy. That being said MORE chairman would fire than not based upon this form. Personally I wouldn’t yet, Guardiola would struggle with our keepers and I agree I don’t think he got to choose them that’s Victor Orta’s group. We are not being overrun in games it’s just a perfect storm of normally star go to players Ayling, Jansson having a huge drop in form. Coupled with mad stupid ridiculous errors why did Phillips need to make that challenge. Not my money (but I do feel for our fans who traveled) and IF Radz is thinking long term he will know where he needs to improve and I believe he will do that in Jan. Whether TC remains couldn’t be certain but I think he will be given more time.


5.) 04 Nov 2017 20:23:42
Mezzer, can’t agree, the changes at half time were on the mark. Motivation isn’t the issue, he does however revisit the ploy of trying to sucker their back line to play forward in order to hit them on the counter- that’s just not working as we risk too much by messing around in front of our own goal! We tried building up and hitting quick, successful but has been sussed, this latest ploy just isn’t working. TC will get it sorted. He has a week to change it up - let’s hope he uses it to good effect👍🏻


6.) 04 Nov 2017 20:25:43
Gayle (or similar) is what we need come January unless Roofe is played upfront and finds his form in this division. Have we seen the last of Lassoga? Stats show his lack of all round contribution but the missed chance was the final nail in his coffin, pity, he promised so much. I think Grot is a better option but not right now. He needs a long run in the reserves to get his head and his shooting boots working. Lonergan, today, was at fault and cost us the match but this is not a knee jerk reaction. We need a young talented keeper to bed himself in. whether that is in January or next summer and whether it is BPF or from outside, I will leave to the powers that be but certainly a strong keeper will do wonders for our defence and therefore our goal difference stats.


7.) 04 Nov 2017 20:46:35
I hear what you are saying classof92, and agree AR is building for the long-term. I do like TC as a person and From the reports AR was impressed with his tactical Knowledge during his interview for the Leeds job. We all thought he was the real deal from our start. But lately he seems to no answers as to how to halt the slide. Yes agree some blame should be laid at Ortas door for his recruitment . Players that were playing well at the start of the season are now looking poor and lacking confidence and as coach this is TCs job to sort. We can hope that giving him more time might change this and I would love to think he can turn it around. But in my opinion I just don't see this happening . TC just says we are making mistakes, but what is he going to do to change this.


8.) 04 Nov 2017 21:29:39
Really good points Mezzer I think the only thing TC can do before January is look to use what he has which we know is limited. I can see a coach has to show loyalty to his team but I think even TC must have realised he needs to change things. Of course that means the likes of Klich, Nessie and Dallas back in BUT even then that may mean more difficult days but then any new coach would face the same dilemma. But then there’s always the new Coach lift that teams often experience such as Leicester, but then Crystal Palace probably thought the same. It’s a gamble but I’m still for keeping TC myself.


9.) 04 Nov 2017 22:37:18
Class Agree on the spine but that will mean further transfer fees of 20m.


10.) 04 Nov 2017 23:12:07
Tactical knowledge what tactical knowledge this man dose not have any ideas whatsoever, he looks lost and never seems to know what to do, He. got the job because he gave a good interview on monk matches he lost and where he was going wrong, now he can’t do it himself, he’s a man in the wrong place at the wrong time and all those who say stick with him better be praying we don’t go down and I have to say this may happen, then where will you all be, still singing TC name.


11.) 05 Nov 2017 12:19:02
Classof92,have taken on board your measured arguement and agree you make a lot of sense, also I've called down a tad since yesterday. Agree that AR will probably stick with TC for the time being and not a great deal that can be done until the next transfer window opens. No one deliberately sets up to fail, but there has been something drastically wrong with our recruitment of players. If this is solely down to Ortas policy of buying young so-called bargain buys from abroad that may or may not be stars for the future. TC needs input into recruitment as the policy of sourcing players and giving them to a coach to coach is not working. If he understands the championship then he needs to buy players who are good enough to play in this league. Otherwise what chance does he or anyone else have?

You're right, they will do the usual lazy journalism thing, but hopefully we won't go back there; he won't sort out our defensive frailties!

Think Martyn, has a good point re, Shelvey. The guy does have a habit of impacting games, I hope Monkey at least starts with the high energy of Viera and Phillips in the centre, Bridcutt way of form and O'kane not match fit. I think we lose the midfield we lose this game, stay with the positive take the game to them intent and I really think we can get something out if this game.

Play the cautious hold and see what we get tactics is not right for me. On a far more serious note where is MM? Hopefully, he's had a result with the sister in law or is on a shell suit world tour, but for me MM star of the sight come back soon matey. 👍

Apologies if this is late but YP quoting Monkey stating that Roofe scan clear Martin and that he's available for selection on Saturday. Only Charlie remains injured in the squad.

Oh that's a good one Jeff!
Have no problem at all with rumours however far fetched they seem, its what makes this site the best around. Can't really see Brian putting his heart and soul into that role, when he could toodle off pocket a mill and join the Warnock media gravy train. No, so long as its not personal against fellow Leeds fans keep em coming Jeff. Really hope your correct though, would love Zola or Eddie Howe anyone that uses the grass again would be welcome.

Well I did try and give you my own reasons Notts, transfer window closed until Jan and no guarantee of success of appointing a new coach. But who? If someone told me that Guardiola great grandma originated from Leeds I’m happy to change my current opinion. I certainly thought as Brentford third goal went in oh god we got to change. But then you take a moment and say who is available that we would want and would make a difference? For me it’s certainly not blind faith and hopefully not ignorance. But rather than people castigate those of us saying stick with him for now, where is the reasoned argument to the contrary? Curahee made some good points and did offer some names, now if Big Sam (can’t stand the bloke) said he’d come and get us up, I would probably back the appointment because personal reasons aside he does turn teams around. But until that happens it’s great to have differences of opinion that’s what makes this such a great Banter Site

Sorry Notts but that statement is a contradiction in itself. In that blind faith leads other posters to miraculously believe a change of Manager will suddenly improve the situation? What can any coach do before January? ilook to use what we already which we know is limited. I can see a coach has to show loyalty to his team but I think even TC must have realised he needs to change things after tonight . Of course that means the likes of Klich, Nessie and Dallas back in BUT even then that may mean more difficult days but then any new coach would face the same dilemma. But then there’s always the new Coach lift that teams often experience such as Leicester, but then Crystal Palace probably thought the same. It’s a gamble but I’m still for keeping TC myself. Not blind faith just a reasoned assessment of our situation.
