  1. Of course it does, I am amazed that the police saw fit to even attend this as a call, considering you don't see a copper when your house gets broken into these days and that is a real crime. I really don't know what all the fuss is about, Lampard saying it never happened at Chelsea, this is a team who employed Mourinho twice as it's manager.
  2. This is hilarious, 2 words I would never use to describe Leeds. An official statement from Leeds United on Saturday read: "Following comments made by Marcelo Bielsa yesterday (Friday) the club will look to work with our head coach and his staff to remind them of the integrity and honesty which are the foundations that Leeds United is built on.
  3. Sorry just more than a little people do nothing for me, especially the false accents.
  4. We will have to agree to disagree reference Paterson, your description of him being a whipping boy is just wrong, I totally disagree with your 'much improved' tag, at best there has been a very slight improvement, also he hasn't been 'on song' since December 2017. But to be fair all of this is not his fault, it's LJ for as you do rightly say 'indulging him' for such a long time and even when he does drop him, he always seems to be looking to get him back into the team on any pretext, pity he is not so patient with other players.
  5. Your post does have a lot of merit. But Paterson whipping boy my arse, 12 months of mainly dross, this season 3 goals 1 assist is just not good enough, defensively he is a liability. This is where I stand on yesterday, Palmer achieved more in 30 minutes than the supposedly bright Paterson, there has been much talk about Diedhiou and Wiemann and my contention is that they cannot play together, Wiemann has not scored since Diedhiou returned from suspension and playing wide does not suit him. In recent weeks I have noticed an increase of low driven crosses into the 6 yard area and Diedhiou has not connected with one, to me he is a yard behind the play all of the time, whereas that was an area that Wiemann looked dangerous pre Diedhiou returning, something has got to give with these 2 as our strike force and Kelly is due a rest. For me the team that finished yesterday has to be the one that starts on Saturday and LJ needs to allow players like Taylor, Da Silva and Palmer to have a fair run in the same way that he has for Paterson over the past 12 months and not look for the first opportunity to shoehorn him back into the team.
  6. I would have more faith in that statement but for his undying love for Paterson in the past 12 months. But hey ho, can't help who you fall in love with.
  7. Should have had a hatrick today, his positional play in the 18 yard box at times is bewildering, he has been at least a yard late into the 6 yard box all season, there have been a lot of meat and drink driven crosses for strikers all season and his hold up play imho is weak, but I take your point it's all about opinions, like with LJ I remain unconvinced re Diedhiou. But let me just throw one other FACT into the mix regarding Wiemann and Diedhiou, all of Wiemanns goals came during Diedhiou's suspension, he has not scored since Diedhiou has returned, maybe they should not be paired together???????
  8. I cannot argue with the highlighted part. It took a sloppily conceded goal and a triple substitution before today became anywhere near a professional performance, they had more shots on target in the first half. I thought he was Diedhiou was poor all round, never caused them a problem all day. Wiemann I will agree is a difficult one, nobody can fault his endeavour but how many goal less games is that now and 2 assists all season, Taylor after today has 3 assists this season and now a recent goal and he hardly gets a game for some reason, as for the very last sentence another good reason to rest him.
  9. Yes but now we have 2 options, 2 options who actually changed the game, one did more than Paterson has done in the past 3 games and the other guy scored one and made one, when was the last time either of these 2 did that?
  10. Somebody else claimed the same earlier today and I will answer the same way, not through my rose tinted glasses he hasn't, he offers little or nothing save the odd reasonable shot and the even less odd cross, his defensive work is appalling, I always feel it's like playing with 10 men with him in the side. I would be interested to know the last game in which had an influence from start to finish, certainly not in the past 12 months.
  11. I'm sorry I can see a case for Wiemann, but Paterson really?
  12. Leave out the player who scored one and had an assist for the 2nd? and bring in a player who played no part in todays game? Taylor deserves a run in the team I am not so sure that Eliasson or Diedhiou deserve that chance.
  13. No headaches, the team that finished has to start, end of.
  14. @Alessandro what are you confused about?, I am always happy to discuss my thoughts on this discussion forum.
  15. Today for me is all about lessons learned. Paterson needs to be dropped totally along with Wiemann, both have been long term poor, some longer than others. Kelly needs a rest. Taylor and Da Silva need a proper run in the side, not just one game and sneak Paterson back in, a long run. Diedhiou was awful today, he needs competition. Pack is another who needs competition 5 times in the 2nd half 3 times after we went 2-1 up he put us in unnecessary bother with sloppy passes. Now it's all about whether the lessons will be heeded. That all said another welcome 3 points but we got away with it today against a piss poor side, better in the 2nd half after the substitutions but still not great.
  16. Because Diedhiou is slow to get into the 6 yard box and his positional play is shocking and his hold up play is poor.
  17. ******* world class by Kelly. Take off Diedhiou and Paterson, both crap today
  18. Diedhiou yet again a yard behind the play in the 6 yard box.
  19. How on earth is that understanding football? What has been identified is a constant problem, a constant problem that for the most part our manager has failed to sort out in 3 years.
  20. Well I would love to hear the thoughts of our manager on this subject, especially Paterson, who has been dog shite for over a year but still appears to be the first name on the team sheet.
  21. And what exactly does that say about us? And they have had 2 shots on target to our 1.
  22. Apparently Paterson has improved recently, not according to my rose coloured glasses, same old same old, but LJ loves him.
  23. Yep, apparently Leeds have admitted as much, nothing changes with dirty cheating Leeds. Brian Clough was right they never won anything fairly.
  24. Yes it is, but this Paterson and LJ, we are talking about.
  25. Surely you cannot be suggesting that LJ might drop Paterson???????
