  1. If this is anyway true we really are clueless 3 1/2 million on some PR exercise ?
  2. Some shithead texted TalkSport earlier They were debating what Pep would experience if Man City fell down the leagues and he stuck with them , as he’s promised They Promptly read out the text ’Pep would be heard mumbling. ‘Is this a circus’ what are all these tents , when he visited Bristol Roves Minimal Ground’ Childish
  3. Was there , - what times to be a teenager ! A massive result and revenge for them turning us over 2-0 at the Gate earlier in season IIRC the home defeat was a bit of a sobering one at the time , after 2 or 3 comprehensive wins on the bounce Wonderful times
  4. In fairness to LJ The games we’ve been winning we’ve been hanging on for grim death and thus absolutely not the games to be bringing Palmer on (IMHO) Palmer has to earn a place , if we’ve spent unwisely that’s one thing but we can’t shoehorn him into the side IMHO
  5. IIRC LJ explained to LA that he’d be ‘getting less game time’ Shame IMHO , could be argued a bigger loss than Josh, Flint or Bryan
  6. Agree with you And this is the issue for me , why , four years into a stewardship Too many options wanted , without defining or following a playing ethos
  7. Not many right backs about at this level that impact a game as consistently as Ayling does always , always ,on the front foot Really like him as a player , and one of the best all round ‘footballers’ we’ve had in the last 10-20 years IMHO
  8. Suited to Leeds style of play ? Not sure you get Bielsa , & we are going around in circles but he wouldn’t look better in Leeds side as he’d get nowhere near it , that’s the point !
  9. A 3 month period , and over two years ago
  10. You have to have a base , and a plan to work from We don’t have one at the moment , before you even consider how far off we are and the leap required Bloodbath
  11. It’s far from perfect , but back to the q When have we had a stronger , and certainly deeper squad ?
  12. No , but it’s relevant You (ie player) work yer cobblers off And buy into the plan / system or forget it I like that Palmer , seems a nice lad , but for all his ‘talent’ ( some real ‘flashes’) doesn’t have the discipline / game awareness or industry to get anywhere near Bielsa’s Leeds For me , he’s a ‘ cream on the cake’ player , who would be a nice addition if you are bossing games week in , week out , We aren't that side In moments he can look too good for this level , but his overall game awareness and understanding are way short Mowbray is no mug and didn’t take to him Its down to HIM to force a place and he’s simply not done or doing that - he may yet but he’s been around a bit and his career and cameos to date don’t inspire confidence that will be so (IMHO)
  13. Bielsa wouldn’t sign him in a million years
  14. I’ve been following 50 years When have we had a stronger or certainly deeper squad ? And certainly at this level ?
  15. Hunt better technically than Ayling ? Not a prayer
  16. ‘Won’ us many points this year, and IMHO one of the major reasons we are in a ‘healthy’ league position Wouldn't swap him for any other keeper In Championship
  17. And Lots of touches is often a clear sign and result of lack of movement and options , player in possession simply waiting for someone to move Back to ‘Lack of movement’ off the ball again
  18. Don’t think he’s happy here and I think he will be gone in Summer
  19. This isn’t as a response to yesterday Harry (Ive hardly ever fancied a City side to get anything at Elland Road ) I know you are a big Pack fan Harry and I concur about your comments about being brave and having the ability to take the ball in tight spaces for example - way ahead of Smith or Brownhill in that respect His faults were highlighted and his attributes were generally unappreciated But Lee was full of himself back in August / Sept in his upgrading of the midfield - Nagy was being lorded by many as a messiah What was the plan , the way of playing ? Having watched us the last 6 months I have personally have absolutely no clue what the plan was , or is As for your point ‘Have a look at us now when we have the ball. How many passing options do our players have? Often none. Which results in a long ball forward. ‘ i don’t think many would disagree with you , I’m not sure I can remember a side that consistently lack Movement off the ball and giving the man on the ball options, a constant and regular theme on here Why ? Where is the evidence of work on the training ground ? I find it mind boggling and very surprising for a number of reasons * For a two / three month spell during our Carabao Cup run , under LJ we absolutely did this and did it bloody well - the performance at the Etihad being the pinnacle and epitomy * LJ himself was very good at moving 5 yards and making an angle and option for the man in possession , and something I thought he always did really well and his availability to recycle the ball an important cog in the sides he played in 4 years in , I still see no sign of a playing ethos or plan , or coaching, in terms of a playing ethos and style being demonstrated on the pitch. I do , at times see individual examples of work on training pitch bearing fruit on the pitch (Eliasson’s far post on two occasions against Barnsley an example) but I still don’t see enough of a clear thought process and joined up thinking / planning regarding recruitment and playing ethos Its a flippant remark , but I can’t help thinking. ‘he makes it up as he goes’ Our current League positioning is reasonable , decent , but the current Championship has little to fear , there are a clutch Clubs are in a financial hole , there in transition or trying to find their feet after dives We , IMHO barely benefit from LJ having been here four years IMHO, or certainly not as much as we should be As for losing six players from the Man United side for £40m - Lee didn’t want Flint , was happy to offload Hörður and Marlon , almost certainly would have liked to have kept Bobby , and probably Josh and Joe Bryan All of these players were regularly berated on here , Reid probably escaping the most ( once playing up top ) Lee’s had the opportunity , and options to, and been backed heavily to replace all of these with alleged strength in depth in each position In the current Championship , with a reasonable squad , a well drilled , organised and motivated side is going to probably get promoted We should be cashing in on the fact Lee has been allowed to build and ‘upgrade’ here for four years - Our ‘Ace’ card in comparison to every other Championship Club Frustratingly , I don’t think we do , and I’m not sure I see that changing whilst Clubs at this level will regroup and I think the Championship will become even tougher in the next few seasons
  20. Not specifically about the game plan yesterday , but , my constant thought through most of his 4 years
  21. I think it was a poor choice of words I think he’s on about problem solving / recognising dangers / decision making by players in game. I think he has a point to a degree , we have enough experienced heads out there However , what I’d also add is we don’t know what instructions he’s giving , ( and more importantly IMHO ) players have less of a problem solving and decision dilemmas if they have a good , well understood , system , and understanding that they can rely on Players arnt blameless but not as easy as throwing it all their way
  22. Being a sad troll again , or just incredibly stupid - never sure which , but then nor are you
