  1. The lad is a player, no question. Pack’s game is completely different. Adam plays it simple and quickly, just how football should be played.
  2. So did I. was told later that they have to play a certain number of games at Ashton Gate, don’t know if that is true? We could ask the SLO? Really surprised that this wasn’t advertised more with the kids off school. The crowd was sparse, perhaps the players would appreciate playing in front of more fans?

    I don’t think he has that kind of control over transfers out of the club. No manager wants to sell a player he thinks will benefit his team by being part of his squad, both the Pack and Webster transfers would have been against LJ’s wishes. At this moment in time the team is far weaker than last season, part due to injury, part due to the time needed to integrate new players, but mainly due to the transfer of those two players. We will miss Webster until a genuine like for like replacement is found and joins either now as a unattached player or in January. Moore is not the answer week in week out this season. Nagy may be a decent replacement for Pack, but as a squad player Pack would have been well worth keeping. I agree with you that his interview was very much about how we lost, and underlying that in my opinion was LJ knowing that he was forced to agree to transfers he didn’t want to happen.
  4. Was the big guy Cissè?
  5. That’s the problem, we need to be a Cat 1 Academy to avoid losing our best youngsters. if I have one gripe with SL it’s that we don’t seem to want to be a CAT1 club, it can’t happen overnight because it needs a lot of infrastructure to achieve, however SL does have the money and could finance the upgrade if he was inclined to do so. Spending on Academy’s is outside the FFFP rules so far as I’m aware.
  6. All the money goes to the first team group. I can quite believe that figure is accurate.
  7. We have already lost one academy coach to Southampton, there may be something in this.
  8. We don’t, but only one persons opinion counts, and it’s his head on the block.
  9. We will need to cling on until January. It could be a long four months. Both new full backs injured, Wright and Baker have missed lots of training. Wouldn't surprise me if Moore is injured as well, why otherwise would you play two other guys who aren’t match fit?
  10. If you have moved recently (6 months) it’s probably gone to your old address, if you told City they seem to have ignored that information for many people. I would advise people to collect from the ticket office if possible.
  11. I didn’t see the game as over complicated. We set up to let Leeds have the ball, which they did.
  12. Nail on head Bob. I would be really interested to know if the starting line up had played together at any point in training this season. We were slow, disorganised, lethargic and clueless in equal measure, makes a mockery of the pre season work the team supposedly did. Mr Ashton is going to earn his corn next week to recruit up to five players. From today the hard bit is deciding which five to replace as we had 9 or 10 candidates for worst player on the park. It wasn’t all down to Webster being transferred, we should be able to cope to some degree with one player missing. Leeds were short of a couple but it didn’t seem to make them play poorly.
  13. This is so true. These tickets should have been guaranteed to be with the owners at least seven days before the first fixture, that way anyone who had not received the ticket could have contacted the club for a replacement that would have arrived before the first game. No doubt the office has had to deal with unnecessary calls from people concerned about their tickets only for them to arrive the next day. Not rocket science, the additional cost of dealing with all the calls and emails makes the club less profitable, and generates bad publicity and ill will.
  14. Not sure if your happy or not to go with this squad. I think there is a real danger of losing Webster, he may even submit a transfer request. If we can’t add a goal scorer then I fear we may struggle, a depleted Leeds team will be a stern test, and pre season we’ve shown little sign of being up to it. Sincerely hope I’m wrong, but this could be the season where a mid table finish is looked on as acceptable, I believe this squad isn't better than last seasons, and in some respects is worse.
  15. LJ and MA may have met with a certain Portuguese agent.
