    Sold out

    Getting to be more of an away regular now and will be visiting both QPR and Brum. Can’t wait, particularly if we’re anywhere near as good as we were at Villa.

    Red Button Coverage

    Well they’ve done well out of me today. I saw it advertised as being shown on Sky Football so I dutifully bought a £7.99 day pass on NowTV. Soon realised that it was not being shown as a main match (no red button) so had to pay another £10 for iFollow.

    Match officials

    I sit in a similar position and the linesman on the south properly wound me up last night. Would be interested to know if the linos on the north stand side are just as bad. I can’t really tell from where I sit.

    Adam Reach and FFP

    This. Arguably the biggest asset that we now have is Jos and his ability to quietly create value should not be ignored. He’s got more out of first team regulars (Reach, Bannan), he’s got more out of previously fringe players (Nuhiu, Joao) and he’s turned previously ignored youth players into first team regulars (Thorniley, Penney). If Carlos had possessed anywhere near Jos’s ability to develop talent we’d be in a very different position to the one we are currently.

    Do you know what ....

    Bristol City is an important game. A performance like last night or Villa and we’ll win. The Wednesday way though is to put in another Forest-like performance.

    Still an out from me

    I doubt that Bielsa at Wednesday would have achieved any more than Jos in the same circumstances. It also remains to be seen if Leeds can keep up the same intensity over the full season. I would hazard a guess that Wednesday have more staying power.
  7. Thought we matched them first half and fully expected us to build on Reach’s goal in the 2nd half. It just didn’t happen and we just couldn’t keep the ball. Leeds looked very good. Happy with a point.

    Leeds or Sheffield United

    Being born in Leeds and having lived and worked in West Yorkshire all my life, the Leeds game always holds a certain frisson for me. In the words of Kevin Keegan I would just love it if we beat them on Friday.

    I love being in transition 4 points off the top!

    Are we trusting him yet?

    From the moment he took us to the Lane last season and came away with a point when we were at our lowest ebb I’ve trusted him. With more players returning and loanees to add into the mix, I can’t wait to see what the future holds. He seems to have created a great spirit amongst squad members. Long may it continue.

    Football Fans - The Price Of Football

    And yet they still receive failure payments for relegation. Given the profits clubs are now making, surely this outdated practice should be stopped and clubs forced to manage their own risk that the gravy train may one day come to a stop.

    If they’re going to play any music at all it might as well be Sheffield music. Waterfront works because it’s completely anthemic - Simple Minds at their best and I can’t immediately think of a Sheffield equivalent (someone on here will know). Send in the Boys is perfect for the second half I reckon.
  15. Looking forward to this. Wigan last week wasn’t anywhere near as bad as Preston last season. That gives me enough hope going in to this one. Can’t wait to hear our new walkout music. UTO.
