    Will kevlar vests now be standard issue PPE at Moor Farm?
  2. I suppose we can't really blame those Leeds fans for being shocked that coaching has moved on in the last 15 years. After all the vast majority of them have only just remembered that Leeds United exist after mysteriously losing interest around 2004.

    A song for the Play-off Final

    As much as it pains me to say it, Leeds will win automatic promotion.

    Kelle Roos

    When the rule first came in I remember Lee Grant (during his first spell for us) being penalised for jumping forwards, even though he deliberately started a yard behind his goal line so he was on the line when the save was made.
  5. They're second only to scousers when it comes to victim mentality.
  6. I wasn't overly bothered about the spying accusations. There's nothing against it in the rules, it just seems a little grubby and unnecessary and I can see why it's generally agreed that teams in this country don't send spies to opposition training grounds. Bielsa's press conference deliberately misses the point. For starters he seems like an arrogant rick who completely buys into the mythos surrounding himself. Yes Marcelo, you're the only manager who prepares dossiers on opposing teams. What an unparalleled genius! Watching previous games and analyzing statistics is not the same as sending one of your coaches to covertly spy on opposition training sessions, and if it is, why bother doing the latter?

    O'Notts Forest

    He won't start buying Irish players. The main point in defense of his unremarkable stint as the national team boss is that it's the weakest talent pool Ireland (or Essex in Keogh's case) have had for quite some time.

    O'Notts Forest

    I like O'Neill, but this appointment feels about 10 years past it's sell by date. I think O'Neill has looked short of ideas in his last few jobs. Sunderland were as drab as, well as drab as Sunderland usually are, under his tenure and his time with Ireland was ultimately a failure. He only qualified for one tournament and that was the expanded Euros where nearly 50% of entrants now go to the finals, and he needed a play off to achieve that. I don't know why he insists on dragging the neanderthal Keane around with him either.
  9. If this is all fine and above board, then why the subterfuge? Why don't all clubs just send a scout into the training centre and have him state, "I'm here from X club to watch the training session"? Then he could at least have a tea and a sausage butty on the touchline, rather than skulking around in the bushes like a ducking sex pest. I'm not overly concerned by the incident and I don't think Leeds or Bielsa should face any punishment from the football authorities, but simply looking logically at the ramifications of this shows why it's generally agreed that it isn't practiced. If spies at training sessions becomes the norm then clubs will not only employ an army of spies, but security teams patrolling the premises, drone operators, etc... etc... If spying is no big deal, why would it be any worse to chuck a bung at a low level coach or youth team player for information regarding training routines and team selection? Then you'd have managers starting to bluff the opposition by deliberately running training routines contrary to what they planned to do on match day. Do we really need football to be any more of a circus than it already is?

    Vs Leeds away. (Matchday thread).

    These ratings are shockingly low and the worst part is I think you've been too generous. I agree that Bryson was completely ineffective, but I don't see how Mount or Evans can score higher than him. If anything they were even worse. Carson deserves less too. His error for the first is so bad. Not a Leeds player near him and he chooses to punch, except he doesn't punch, he flaps. With such a young team and some youngsters in defence we really need our experienced 'keeper to be far more composed.

    Are our loan players really all that?

    Wilson has impressed me. I thought he was another Lawrence at the start of the season, but he's buckled down to life in the Championship and shown there's more to his game than free kicks and long range shots. Tomori is really good for a young centre back. This is a position where players don't normally peak until their late 20's, so it's understandable that Tomori looks naive at times. Mount is starting to worry me. He started like a house on fire, but he's struggling badly at the moment. He would've been dropped a while back if we weren't so short in his position.
  12. I have to admit that, whilst I'm an advocate of using players from our academy, Lowe has failed abysmally after being given a chance to make the left back slot his own. We're in a tough spot now because we didn't bring him back from Aberdeen to sit in the reserves, but his last two performances don't warrant a place in the squad. He will get more chances between now and the end of the season and he must show much more than he has so far if he wants to cut it at this level.

    No. He wound me up massively tonight. Bryson is a yard too slow for Championship football, but at least he tries. Mount hid tonight. He's been hiding for a while.

    I don't blame the ref for missing it because in real time barely anyone noticed anything untoward. If you watch the replay you can see the sly ducker looks down once he has the ball and then extends his leg to connect with Holmes. I hope we send the footage for the league to review, although this guy is so crap it might hurt Leeds more if he's available to play.

    Pontus Jansson

    Jansson is a great athlete, but he's an idiot. The brains of the operation plays alongside him. I'd love to have Liam Cooper here. Great player, great leader. Jansson can get ducked. A Swedish centre back who wears gloves? Nope. One of the few cheers of the evening from me when Waghorn hacked him at the end.
