    Leeds United Away - November

    It's not that much of a coincidence when you consider I live in Sheffield!

    Leeds United Away - November

    It'll make it to general sale I would think. I always going to Leeds, great pubs in the city centre and about 20-30min walk to the ground. I'm actually going to be in Leeds that day by coincidence, might see if I can get a pass from the boss

    Joe Bryan on Football focus

    Just seen the 3 Man City goals from today and all came from the left back area or areas the left back should have been covering. Not saying JB would have stopped them, but he wouldn't have done worse!

    This team is good enough for promotion

    I think this team can finish in the top 10 of this division and once you're in that range there's usually less than a couple of wins between finishing 10th and finishing 6th. So yeah; this squad could definitely get promoted, though I'd say the odds are still against it. It'll probably hinge on how quickly LJ gets us out of a bad run when the bad run inevitably happens. It should hopefully be good watching us try though
  5. Watching back now, it's actually a lot less obvious than I remember it being. It would be quite easy to miss it crossing the line, though you would have thought between the lino and the ref, one of them would have spotted it. Agree on the 'he gave a free kick' argument; that was just the ref covering his backside. But as I said above; it would have been entirely understandable if the ref had just said "I didn't see it", in which case there is no way he could give the goal

    Eliasson - Set Pieces

    When we signed Elliasson I was very excited. The way he struck the ball was that of a proper top quality player; the kind of technical ability PL teams play £50-60million for. But I never really felt that we used him very well last season (or perhaps his performances didn't merit special treatment). Anyway, he seems to be fulfilling my initial faith right now. And wingers are so much about confidence, he's probably going to get better and better if the team maintains this form. Exciting times

    Goals and Assists - League Only (Obviously)

    On the flip side of that though, a lot of hockey stats 'analysts' are very dubious about the value of the second assist (I'm a bit of an ice hockey fan). The fact is that allocating assists on the basis of the second-to-last or third-to-last person to touch the ball is never going to be very fair. If you look at the goals on Sunday, Elliasson probably deserves an assist for his ball into Taylor to chest down for Watkins goal more than Weimann deserves one for a simple 5 yard pass to Fammy for his goal. In that respect, all assists are meaningless without context

    Marley Watkins

    I watched Watkins quite a few times when he was at Barnsley and all these comments about his heavy touch and poor technique were true then and are true now. I always thought he looked like a really poor player with them. BUT, he always seemed to get results- maybe not through footballing ability, but through 100% effort and knowing how to use the tools he does have. I can't remember many players at this level who looked as poor but got such good results. I think we'll find that here too. It won't look great, but at the end of the season we'll look back and realise that he's a very solid contributor

    Bryan and reid.

    I think the whole Cardiff squad is not quite PL standard. I do think that Bobby has enough intelligence in his game to do a job at that level, but I don't think WarnockBall is going to bring the best out of him in that respect. I hope he shows some level of ability at that level, Cardiff go down and he gets a move somewhere else. As for Bryan, he sounds to have done quite well in his initial couple of games, I'm sure he'll get more opportunities

    This season my 5 a side team are in a division with a team called 'AC a little Sillouhetto of Milan'

    Eliasson s transformation

    I'm not sure that the idea that Elliasson would have been way down the pecking order we're it not for his pre season form quite rings true. Johnson repeatedly said last season that Elliasson would take some bedding in and we wouldn't see the best of him straight away. And as it seems apparent that he wanted Brownhill to play on centre mid and has described Paterson as one of his strikers, I'm not sure there have ever been that many ahead of him in the queue. Anyway, long may his great form continue

    I think the quoted poster was talking about Pogba's attitude rather than Bakinson's. What are these rumours you speak of?

    Loan Watch: 2018/19

    I do actually think that the best place for Bakinson is wherever he's going to play games, but if he keeps getting those kind of reviews for Newport I do wonder we might be seeing him in the championship after Christmas. I really hope we have a couple more youngsters make a step forward this season, it's great to see them break in and thrive, a la Lloyd Kelly

    Loan Watch: 2018/19

    Well I was being slightly facetious, but as it happens a certain centre midfield player is somewhat injured at the minute. I'm not suggesting Bakinsom would start (though he may improve us if he did for all we know), just that he could be useful

    Loan Watch: 2018/19

    There's some serious praise for him there. Makes me wonder why he isn't in and around our first team this season?!
