  1. Definitely agree that David Speedie should be included. There must be a few in the Leeds team of the late 60s / early 70s. Johnnie Giles for one. He used to kick players off the ball when the ref's attention was elsewhere. Nasty git!
  2. The worst analyst / co - commentator on Sky right now is our former injury prone full back, none other than Andy Hinchcliffe. He just doesn't know when to remain quiet and acts like some kind of advice bureau on what the player should have done in the latest passage of play. I just wish he would learn to STFU for a few seconds!
  3. It really does look like he's played Tombola to decide the team for tonight. Who knows how they will line up.
  4. The blue shirts with white sleeves never had blue cuffs like the picture shown above.
  5. Over the longer term, performances will be reflected in the points tally. So far the performances have been dreadful (possibly Wigan was an exception) and if DM doesn't get more out of the squad, our league position will be lower as the fixtures go by.
  6. And yet the Lincoln game is Category A. Beggars belief!
  7. Yesterday in particular, our ball control and passing was appalling. Oxford got the ball down and found their men with passes into runners both wide and down the channels. Wednesday for some reason couldn't bring it down or find men in space. Movement was severely lacking too, especially at throw-ins, where our players were like shop window mannekins.
  8. The last 4 minutes of that video are absolutely hilarious! And so true. The world, not just football is going mad with ridiculous analysis, stupid words and sayings that are meaningless and banal!
  9. Dunkley was a disaster yesterday. Poor ball control, poor positional sense and gave the ball away too many times. Iorfa was slightly better but not up to his usual level. In fact I thought it was noticeable how Oxford controlled the ball much better, got it on the floor and passed it much, much better than Wednesday.
  10. The classic way to play 4-3-3 is for the wide man who is at the opposite side to the one where the attack is being developed, to come in off the line and support the centre forward. That way there are at least two forwards in the box with the opportunity for midfield players also to attack the box. It just won't work if both wide forwards stay wide as play develops.
  11. For goodness sake change the record.
  12. Even in those very brief highlights we look totally disorganised. Ipswich several times went through the midfield and defence like a hot knife through butter. Pathetic Wednesday. Absolutely pathetic.
  13. From the radio commentary, it sounded like a very poor performance, with no direction. Not enough determination or positive approach. At this rate, mid table will be beyond us never mind promotion.
  14. Use trainline.com and when you put in the departure station and destination station and date etc the system will let you know the cheapest tickets including whether single ticket are cheaper then a return ticket.
  15. Not televised I don't think, but there was a goal by Gerry Young at home V Birmingham City in the F A Cup which was from 35+ yards out. we were losing 2-1 at the time and he looked up and blasted it into the top corner leaving Jim Heriot, their Scottish International goalkeeper grasping at air. I think it was the 4th Round in January 1969 as it was before we changed back to stripes. Sadly we lost the replay at St Andrews..
  16. So far tickets seem to have been available 5 to 7 days before te game. Much later than in previous seasons. Not sure why this should be though.
  17. Definitely the best ever UK goalscorer of all time. His goals to game ratio is far and away better than anyone who has played in this country.
  18. Absolutely! Today I bought a Bere's sausage roll. £1.15 and it was superb. Of course their pork sandwiches are excellent too. Why pay ridiculous prices in the ground for awful pizza?
  19. I think there was a team who played in High Hazels park and played in claret and blue. Can't recallvtheir name sadly.
  20. Sounds like you were in a similar age group to me. I played for Greenhill Rangers against Hackenthorpe Throstles and Halliwell Juniors in the Sheffield & District Sunday League. I think it was 68 / 69 and 69 / 70. I remember we played away to Hackenthorpe and drew 6 all. There was another team from the Intake area which Gary Hull played for and also a team from Hyde Park in the same league. Ring any bells with you Sternlad?
