Several times a loss in the 3rd round of the cup has determined our season. Cardiff, Sutton and now I have a depressing feeling that the Newport will see the wheels come off and a terrible 4 months eventuate. Hope I am wrong but I've seen it before and have a gut feeling. PS I am not an optimist.

I'm not convinced the FA cup results were the 'cause' of the wheels coming off in those seasons - rather, i suspect they were a symptom of the true cause which was that we weren't good enough.



29 Aug 2017 16:53:52
Not used to all these positives since early 2000's. But can't help thinking if a club like Palace or West Ham or one of them sack their manager and have millions to spend to keep them safe from relegation, they will just look at the poor relations in the Championship and take who they want. because they can. I know TC is contracted but these Prem clubs have money to buy out contracts. Just being cautious as being kicked in the guts is how us Leeds fans live.

Octo I get where you're coming from, but for
Me TC is a different breed and so is Rads. I think they're both in it for the long haul and share the vision and dream.

2.) 29 Aug 2017 17:51:03
Thing is, you can't just take TC, you have to take the whole backroom staff including Bravo and Orta. I don't see him leaving, he doesn't seem like the type to walk away and he was really keen to come here.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 17:59:08
I'm with you on that one Curahee, Radz is to smart and TC seems very committed and like I said in a previous post he celebrates when we score so his heart is with us, for the first time in a long time we are building for the future and anyone who comes in Radz will make sure they buy into it. MOT

4.) 29 Aug 2017 18:02:43
Think you're right Octo, but am in agreement with Cura on this one. Reckon there will be all sorts of clauses in TC's contract too for loyalty, and like Cura says, I think we are onto something different with these guys.

5.) 29 Aug 2017 18:46:21
Despite his European pedigree, both playing and managing, TC was a bit of a punt (but, I guess all Championship managers are, to a degree - what with the nature of the league) so, I don't really see a solid Premier League team coming calling just yet. Potentially next season (provided we have a fairly good one) could see some top flight oppo come calling. That said, I do trust him and the board to make the right decisions.

6.) 29 Aug 2017 18:58:09
I think Palace would be more likely to get Colin or Fat Sam back.

7.) 29 Aug 2017 19:08:16
Apparently West Ham want Benitez and Newcastle would never go for TC. theyd go for someone they have to pay much more money to for poorer results than TC. So maybe even very terribles for them then! 😂

According to NZ media, chris wood is on 55K (pounds) per week at burnley. Surely this can't be right? If it is, then can't blame him for going. I was never a fan of wood. always thought he was a donkey. Eeeee-haaaawwww

Wow that's . £3666 a minute of game time ;-)

2.) 22 Aug 2017 10:39:38
From what I read it's likely to be much lower with Burnley's top earner coming in at 35k. He'll still be on a massive pay increase no doubt. Careful this doesn't turn into another Seth Johnson like myth.

3.) 22 Aug 2017 13:40:20
its certainly possible - premiership wages and Burnley's record signing.

4.) 22 Aug 2017 14:07:05

I know this sounds crazy but my friend emailed me saying that he has heard that van Persie is a possibility. We don't get many Dutch playing for Leeds. Yes please!

William Korsten, who defected to Spurs.

What about the icon that was Robert Molenaar?

7.) 26 Jan 2017 15:38:05
not sure if he was dutch but pretty sure Jody Von Morris was part dutch as he was so skillful

albert adomah is allegedly ready to walk out on middlesbro. we were after him a few years ago. would be a great addition to the Leeds team. yes please!

There has been some dreadful shooting from outside the box. Way too high and way too wide. or both. From a professional footballer, I would expect them to be better than my long range shooting. Some of the worst shooting I have ever seen. did their coaches never explain how to keep the ball down instead of almost clearing the stadium?

octopus eats crocodile

1.) 01 Jan 2018 22:53:50
That's right Octy also have a look at the number of shots that are aimed straight at the goalie. For goodness sake shoot either side and you logically stand a better chance.

2.) 02 Jan 2018 01:21:48
Yeah, you're dead right leodis. Shooting 101.not straight at the keeper! For pro's they are not too different from amateurs.

It is already xmas day lunch time here in NZ and a sweltering 28 degrees outside. Merry xmas and best wishes for 2018 to Leeds Utd and all their supporters. Hope we get a nice present in May!

2.) 25 Dec 2017 05:05:30
Yeah, 28 degrees is cold for Aust, and a Queenslander would be wearing a jacket and beanie. Merry xmas and happy new year to you too Ausman

3.) 25 Dec 2017 06:43:22
I'll take 28. Pleasant. Very pleasant. Looking forward to watching the game Wednesday morning. MOT.

Hope u kiwis had an awesome xmas day. Merry christmas to you! We are under appreciated. Waking up at stupid times every week to follow games. Bloody poms got it easy.

Once upon a time Leeds and Celtic were European giants. Now look at us. Celtic 7-1 down to a French team and us 4-1 down to a Portugese team.

😂. That’s quite funny, shame they had our pants down for the first half, cause we came out fighting in the second until the obvious 🙄onwards and upwards ( we can’t afford to keep going south😬) . They had some quality periods and to have £13 mil worth of player on the bench just outlines the differences- but I still think we will beat em next time. MOT keep smiling and keep the faith.

The false dawn is well and truly over as we go from dreaming of promotion. to thinking about relegation. This is relegation form, and we are sinking like a stone. Maybe next season. or not.

octopus eats crocodile



31 Oct 2017 21:41:56
. and another false dawn is well underway. The great Leeds mirage where we see promotion. but it disappears as the season progresses as the thirsty man in the desert sees the water disappear.

Sorry to ask, but is this Japanese fella, the one we were after a few months ago and then he was suddenly tracked by another club with Japanese owner or sponsor or something? Orta announced it as a massive possible signing and we were all wondering if it was Messi or Ronaldo?

Wood is a donkey, albeit a very very lucky flukey one. I have seen him play for NZ against teams from the Pacific Islands like Papua New Guinea, Fiji etc and you would never guess in a million years that he was a paid professional. Awful first touch, slow, misses sitters, couldn't trap a bag of cement, but last season goals were pinging in off his ear, nose, knee, shin, backside, elbow etc. Luck will be due to run out.

He won the League Cup with Norwich and was England's manager taking them to . was it a World Cup or was it a runners up spot? Can't remember.

Real Madrid play in white because they were so impressed by Leeds years ago. or have I got that the wrong way round? ! Not sure if a team of diving cheating imaginary card waving Spanish would do well in this league.

As soon as the commentator said when Brooks came on as a sub, that he had never scored a first team goal, I just knew that he would before the final whistle. happens every time.

Directly linked to ties with Pablo Escobar and the Colombian cartel. Also, the scorpion kick didn't matter because the ref had already blown his whistle. The game had already been stopped when he did the scorpion kick.

octopus eats crocodile

{Ed001's Note - both are mentioned in the article. The guy grew up with Escobar, a lot of the locals saw the guy as some kind of modern day Robin Hood because he did things for the local community such as provide electricity and housing with running water etc. The corrupt government was worse and did nothing for the people so they looked elsewhere. Unfortunately, when you come from extreme poverty, the only way out of it is usually drugs. Higuita was lucky he could play footie. You can choose to judge others, but you don't know the half of what they have gone through to end up as they are.}
