  1. We need to beat Villa well, their GD is an extra point, and with 3 of the bottom 4 to play. If they catch one of Wigan/Millwall/Rotherham on a bad day, goals galore. Goal difference could really be the decider I think and we have work to do.
  2. Doesn’t matter what team, god I love the championship drama compared to prem
  3. Every year in the championship, the last 5/6 weeks the bottom clubs become a different beast. You'll get all sorts of shock results and thumpings. Form will completely go out of the window for them. I reckon Middlesborough/Preston/Forest are teams ripe for beating by some of the lower clubs, as they are the games they write off and wins and worry about teams around them.
  4. Top half, prevent the blunts in both games denting promotion, Bruce in charge to start fresh with a few months of free shots. This is the best we can hope for this year, and tbh it's not a bad place to be coming into the new season.
  5. What annoys me was this wasn't sussed out. Second season there were some flashes but we became so fixed on not conceding. We had one bad game, which happened to be the playoff final against Hull, and Carlos panicked. Second year we could have walked it had we not changed style. For Huddersfield to win the playoffs without scoring a single goal in normal time is criminal from both Us and Reading. Any attacking team would have ripped them apart, and we had the ability. Unfortunately now the majority of players have past their peak to make that system work, so needs a new start.
  6. Any team who wears blue shouldn't have black as an away. Just doesn't work against so many teams, as nice as it looks.
  7. Is Hutchinson available for this?asking for a friend
  8. Been in the home end at reading when we lost 6-0... I made a point of not clapping after the 3rd
  9. Has abdi been doing a John Terry while the boys are playing on saturdays? Sounds like they don't want him there
  10. Heard the table has gone back to Ikea. It's always wanted to at be Ikea, and dreamed of working there when it was just a tree.
  11. Honestly, I think that should be his next move. Buy a lower league club and try and stick it to the big boys. Could imagine he would have a huge short term impact somewhere. Basically a Chansiri, but with more footballing brain. Saying all that, I despise him as a manager.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
