  1. North West In between Blackburn & Burnley. So not mega far, but they'll be on road by now.
  2. Come on ref ffs, I need to know whether I'm going to Hillsborough or going home!?
  3. Briscoe and Spurr on the good list but no Lewis Buxton? Worst for me would be Beswetherwick.
  4. Champions League and Europa League postponed https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51870540
  5. Best half time we ever had was when they had people racing up and down the pitch in Zorbs. #GiZorbsBack
  6. I'd stick an extra CM in to stiffen us up, get Bannan further forward and not bother with Matias Dawson Palmer Lees Thorniley Penney Hector Onomah Reach Bannan Forestieri Fletcher
  7. This. Didn't see owt wrong with what he said pre-match either, he said we've been playing poo, especially the defence. Which is true. Struck me as a rare occasion when a pundit had actually seen us play before commenting.
  8. Chansiri did say at last forum/Q&A that we'd rejected offers in the summer, but didn't say who for. If we rejected offers for players who weren't in the managers plans then that's just clown shoe incompetence.
  9. 1. Probably not, and I've got nothing against Dawson/Wildsmith, but I do think the loss of a number of experienced players is part of our defensive issues, and it's annoying that some of those are self inflicted wounds. 4. I always liked Fessi wide in a 4-4-2 when Carlos did it to chase a game, and if we'd got the midfield beast we've needed for last few years I might still advocate it, but since Jos doesn't seem to trust FF defensively I think he's very unlikely to trust him in a 4-4-2.
  10. 1. I'd pick Westwood in goal. We've lost our captain/organiser in Loovens, plus Wallace, Venancio and Hutch who were all quite vocal and are gone/out. Hard to tell from back of kop but my feeling is we've now got a much quieter team and I think a more experienced/vocal goalkeeper would help the defence as a unit. 2. Has to be 4 at the back for me. Our full backs are variously, better as full backs than wing backs, young or just plain mediocre. The way we play wing backs its 5 at the back, not 3, meaning we carry no threat out wide, no outlet, and just end up inviting pressure onto our defence. 3. We need 3 in the middle of the park, otherwise we get overwhelmed. 4. Our best player imo, Forestieri, is best suited to a wide forward role afaic in order to get him on the ball running at defences and give him the freedom to cause some damage. So, putting all that together our best XI imo would be: Westwood Baker - Lees - Hector - Penney Onomah - Hutch - Bannan Reach - Fletcher - Forestieri (Lee probably in for Baker/Onomah if fit)
  11. I'm torn between my desire to say mean things about Leeds and my enormous throbbing man-crush on Bielsa. Love the way he sets his teams up Despite the fact we play out from the back, our defenders aren't actually that great in possession imo. The high press could hurt us. Equally, if we get out of the press our forward line will love the amount of space they'll have to work with. Hoping for a free flowing high scoring game. Which means it'll probably finish 0-0...
  12. Last season he was playing CM, with a deeper starting position, allowing him to receive the ball facing the opposition and carry it forward, which filled a vital role in Lee's absence. We're now playing him as a no 10, where he's more likely to receive the ball in tight spaces with his back to goal. That role is much better suited to Hooper or Forestieri when they're available. In the current 4-2-3-1 system he'd be much more effective in one of the wide positions imo. Or switch to more of a 4-3-3 so he has a deeper starting position (can't play him in a 2 with Bannan, we need a holder).
  13. Bump! Just passed the £150 mark on mine, but I am also confused about how to get on the official team so I've emailed JP!
