  1. Can’t defend a one goal lead, go in front again, can’t defend that, go in front for a third time and cannot defend that. Doesn’t look good.
  2. All will be revealed when he is unveiled at Leeds following his “dream move”
  3. Which they charged him for. #Tinpot
  4. With the squad we have at the moment I feel we won’t progress on the position that we finished last season. My feeling is that this season will be a regressive one. I hope to be proved wrong.
  5. I don’t think there is any smoke without fire. I believe that Nketiah will sign for Leeds today. I think the relationship between Orta and Emery had a lot to do with it, and from the players perspective Leeds would be a more attractive offer. As a player you want to be playing in a better team where you are likely to get more opportunities to score and increase your value. Leeds will almost certainly be in the spotlight more than we will this season. They have a greater fan base and history and you have only got to watch Soccer Saturday to notice just how little coverage we get. We are not a fancied club. You can’t blame the player for wanting to go to the bigger club. Agents have probably got a lot to do with it too. They want the limelight on their investment and if that means a bidding frenzy then that’s brilliant for them. What concerns me is that as a club we have said (MA, SL and LJ) how important it is to get our business done early and yet we find ourselves at the very last day of the window without a deal done for a striker, which has been a big problem for us for a while (probably since the loss of Tammy and most recently Bobby Reid). Maybe this is something that we cannot do anything about. None of us really knows what goes on behind the scenes, but it does seem that alternative options sound a bit knee jerk which suggests that we have put all our eggs in one basket. There is no guarantees that even if Nketiah did sign for us that he would remain fit all season. We would then still have a problem with strength in depth if we are serious about a promotion push. I think that the bottom line is that we don’t want to pay big money and wages for a top striker, but rather take a loan, save a few bob and hope that the gamble pays off and we reach the Premier League without stretching the finances of the club. I will be interested to see what happens by close of play today, and then watch how the season begins to unfold. We are lightweight in the middle of the park and lightweight upfront. The next few months will begin to show us just how much that will affect where we sit in the table.
  6. According to Leeds live he has chosen to sign for them. Arsenal wanted him to sign for us but Leeds made last minute plea and with Roofe on his way to Anderlecht Bielsa will offer him a key role.
  7. I will be very surprised now if he comes to us with the latest news. Unfortunately we can’t compete realistically with the ambition of Leeds. This has gone on too long to feel positive about.
  8. They’re loving it. They are shit, but the shit are even shitter apparently
  9. My old man had a meltdown today. He said we’re going down. FML!
  10. It’s going to be a 25,000 all seater apparently and City fans are not going to be happy. How funny is that? Anyway, **** the shit because we don’t care about them.
