  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Is Hutchinson available for this?asking for a friend
  5. Been in the home end at reading when we lost 6-0... I made a point of not clapping after the 3rd
  6. Has abdi been doing a John Terry while the boys are playing on saturdays? Sounds like they don't want him there
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. Urby Emanuelson, not sure we got the best out of him...
  14. Soft spot for Brentford's ground. Proper football stands, pub on each corner. Away end built for a fun day out.
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 2015-16, perfect shirt, sponsor & manufacturer blue, added to it, almost perfect season. Will remember that one fondly for a while
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. We will finish: 8th Who wins the league?: Leeds Relegated Teams: Rotherham, Reading and Hull Top goal scorer: Nuhui Will Jos be in charge?: Yes Stand out players?: Dawson Notable crazy moment(s) of the season: DC takes the team out for a Thai meal to celebrate the double over Utd
  24. Until all fans can agree to stage a mass walkout for 1 or 2 weekends across the country, or skip an entire season watching on the box, the war is well and truly lost. Cricket is already a fast sinking ship now with TV rights and 20/20. As much as I hate the sport, Rugby is the only one I can see where the fans are still kings.
