    An attack minded manager.

    Surely not a single player (maybe keeper exception), wants to go out and play football trying not to concede and spend 90 minutes sitting back. They would all want to go out and score, even defenders I imagine? What would be more enjoyable, lose while hoping not to, or lose knowing you spent 90 minutes playing to win Seems so so simple, defence minded should only ever come into play in cup games, and even then depends on the opponents.

    Let's be honest, we were never going up this year. Therefore I'm more than happy he is being blooded in during a rough championship season. Think this season alone will be worth 3 seasons in league 1 or 2. I bet he's nervous when the game plan is soak up pressure and defend. Have to say Jos has got this one right, no matter what the reasons behind it, could be a strong loyal asset.
  3. There's so many issues really, some understandable some tough to swallow. The little picture - yes there are a lot of issues going on that is starting to push fans away. - Dire marketing where we are simply outclassed by United - Bit of a shambles of player management by previous manager, possibly creeping in with Jos but too early to tell still - Pricing structure (see big picture) - Leeds & United currently cruising in a very winnable league, while we are so inconsistent - Atmosphere, player injuries, lots of day to day unknowns making the fans loose patients Big picture - FFP - without it there is no doubt Chasiri would have put so much more into this club, and I really don't think he was aware of how bad it would handicap him. After a stunning first year he went for it as we had momentum (we would have been raging if he hadn't). But its single hand-idly put a huge cloud over this club possibly until 2020. - Football is becoming so easy to fall out of love with due to costs, celebrity managers, sky favourites, sky sports in general. wembly becoming an NFL venue and weekly games. - Death of the FA Cup - The "top 6" etc.... Unless we are doing well its so easy to turn back against the team and even the sport. Really think it's going to be some time till the club get it right, but you could list so many others who for the forseeable future, are truly stuffed if they want success and affordable entertainment. Forest, Brum, Blackburn, Villa, Derby, Ipswich, Coventry, Sunderland - Big city clubs with a loyal and old fanbase.

    Last minute opportunity

    Had we have got the indirect free kick, how do we think that would have gone? so close to the line they could just put a wall on it. Tap to reach to leather it, or pull it back and try to spread them out?
  5. Urby Emanuelson, not sure we got the best out of him...

    Top 3 Championship Grounds

    Soft spot for Brentford's ground. Proper football stands, pub on each corner. Away end built for a fun day out.

    'i dont wear red'

    I imagine the other side dismiss anything with Owl's, and have a distinct hatred to the animal, can be seen as a more reasonable thing. I actively avoid blades

    Best boss?

    The passion of Megson Attacking Coach - Carlos Defence - Stu Gray Fitness & Discipline - Jos Personality & General management - Laws/Sturrock Now if they built the squad, and dare I say the impact of Dave Jones. We would be untouchable
  9. 2015-16, perfect shirt, sponsor & manufacturer blue, added to it, almost perfect season. Will remember that one fondly for a while

    Just got back.

    Listened to the reading manager after, interesting comments about why Bannan was given so much space. He said he was a threat but they couldn’t leave Nuhiu with any space as a big target man, so he ended up double man marked. actually a useful point, Nuhiu being on really does free up the midfield, as their defence are scared to push up
  11. Been here a few times with the family being season ticket holders. Good few beer huts selling the local ale “old boy” outside the east stand, with a big screen up usually of the lunch time game, friendly atmosphere. otherwise absolutely nothing within walking distance of the ground.

    Michael Hector Signing?

    Bring back Reda Johnson! A proper attacking defender... I would be happy with this, we need someone who is out and out defence, the pace should come from elsewhere
  13. Sloppy goal, but support the subs, absolutely no reason to sit back in this game. Need a good strong win and we’ve looked good for it over the last hour

    We need to milk this positivity for all its worth. Even a shocking scrappy win by luck tonight, can make this a kickstart day to the new era after FFP. Scraping the barrel, but if we don't have hope, what's the point.
