  1. Seen him play a few times on TV when I've been in Vancouver. Big chap but quite athletic, good stopper, decent with the ball at his feet, prone to the odd howler. I always felt he was better-than-average in the MLS (from limited viewings), but I'm not sure what that means. Certainly surprised that Vancouver let him go, he had some awesome games for them

    While there's an argument to be made that the age of consent is a pretty arbitrary number, it doesn't make what he did any less illegal. And he knew her age, knew she was half is age and seems to have pursued her pretty aggressively. The man's a wrong un HOWEVER, I've always believed that once someone has finished the punishment set for them by the judicial system, then they should be free to resume their career; whatever that career might be. If City signed him I'd be apoplectic with rage, but he should have every right to sign for a team and they should have every right to sign him in my opinion. Though both player and team will need to accept the consequences of that
  3. Trash one toilet block and you'll do thousands of pounds of damage. Toilets and sinks aren't cheap and plumbers don't work for free
  4. The kids been playing in League 2 for half a season, I imagine he's been kicked a fair bit already since the summer. A Norwich-supporting mate if mine went to Elland Rd when Norwich hammered Leeds (3-0 was it?) and said that Norwich just went at them from the start and Leeds crumbled defensively and couldn't get going up front. Now we're not Norwich but I think the lesson there is that sitting back and trying to contain Leeds isn't a great option. So if Semenyo is going to help keep them on the back foot then we should give him a go
  5. I'm not into conspiracy theories but here's a conspiracy theory I had sympathy for Leeds after the initial 'scandal'; not sure you can have a go at someone for standing on a public highway and watching some football training and if Derby were so precious about it, they probably should have put a fence up or something. However, there is no way that every team in the championship has a publicly accessible training ground, so that (in my opinion) is a different kettle of fish. There must have been some trespass or skullduggery involved. The fine is a big one though. I appreciate that all the changed kick off times are shit for the fans (I work in Leeds and lived there for nearly a decade, so I know a lot of Leeds fans) but the point I was making is that even paying a £200k fine, Leeds probably make more from tv money than most clubs in the division. I just find the idea of a conspiracy theory against any team pretty unbelievable but for that conspiracy to be against the jewel in Sky's championship crown is laughable I do agree though that the deification of Frank Lampard (who is doing a bang average job in my opinion) by Sky is pathetic
  6. True, but we weren't put on TV 19 times last season by an organisation that "hates us and wants to see us fail"
  7. Well most people have found it amusing so far It was also (in case you couldn't tell) q facetious comment; I used to live in Manchester and knew several Man Utd fans who watched them home and away. I always preferred the Utd fans to the City ones, who were just bitter and obsessed with their rivals (who does that sound like?!). However, it's still a fact that Man Utd derive millions of pounds of profit from people in the home counties who chose to support them because they were successful and in my experience tend to be borish know-it-alls who don't care about football outside of the top 10 in the Premier League. Man Utd fans from Manchester/Salford/Trafford are like any other; passionate and connected to their local club How did you become a Man Utd fan?
  8. Actually, if Leeds had spied on every opponent until that point then the chances are there was some criminal trespass involved. I agree that if some intern has been sent down make some notes on a training session whilst stood on the pavement then Leeds shouldn't be punished and the rules should be changed. If Bielsa or anyone else has instructed that intern to trespass then it's a bit different Anyway, don't really have a lot of sympathy for Leeds; the "everybody hates us and is trying to keep us down" narrative from Leeds fans is pathetic. Last season Leeds earned over £1million from TV matches, but apparently Sky hates them and has it in for them...
  9. To be fair, it was a local game for the fans...
  10. Wouldn't be surprised if Leeds v Wednesday gets moved by the police anyway
  11. Sorry, but are we upset that a football pundit has predicted we're going to lose to Wolves? Because that's not exactly a controversial opinion
  12. I have no clue why that Pisano goal was disallowed; as others have pointed out, if it was offside then the ref got it wrong blowing so early. As for the penalty, the first time I saw it I thought it was soft, but in the close up on the replay you can see that the QPR player has both arms round him, so it's a penalty for me.
  13. It's not one of our loans, but I noticed that former academy player Herbie Kane scored on loan for Doncaster last night. 7 goals and 8 assists (I think) from midfield
  14. Weimann looks offside there to be honest
  15. A mate of mine has been saying just this for a few weeks, but he usually talks absolute shit so I've been ignoring him. Wonders will never cease
