  1. Clarke looks like he’s a really good player from what I’ve seen. O’Dowda replacing him seems a logical step.
  2. I hate VAR. However, isn’t the simplest solution for it to be down to the officials on the pitch to decide whether to use it. I think that that is how it works in rugby and it seems far less intrusive there? The womens games have been refreshing - seem to be more open, free flowing and less cynical than the men’s game.
  3. That was a really good listen. Thanks. My suggestion would be Terry Cooper - hed have lots to say (Leeds in the 70s, England etc even before managing City at its lowest ebb - which involved more than just coaching and picking the team). I don’t think younger fans necessarily realise how much we have to thank him for even now. He took a club absolutely on its knees, kept it going and set it on the right course up the league.
  4. And heard good things of young Robert Stambolziev too. Any news on him?
  5. I’d like West Brom to win this but does anyone know if we would we get any extra money on the Kodjia sale if Villa are promoted?
  6. An absolutely terrible day. I recall hearing about it on the radio which was just shocking and then the news came through that a 15 year old boy had also been killed at St Andrews when a wall fell on him which made it even worse. I think that Valley Parade disaster is probably less well remembered as Heysel then happened a few weeks later. What a terrible year for football. I understand why people bemoan the commercialisation of football and how it has been sanitised to an extent. But the poor conditions at many grounds, the violence on occasions and the treatment that fans often had to put up with in the 80s were terrible. Watching football now at somewhere like Ashton Gate nowadays is a world apart from how things were then and it’s absolutely for the better . More than just being treated with respect as a paying “customer” and being able to enjoy a decent environment, nobody should be putting their safety at risk when they go to a match. RIP those who died doing what we all love to do - just enjoying a Saturday out watching their team.
  7. Agreed. Also, Fam up front on his own with balls played up to him won’t get a sniff against Flint and co. Weimann and others buzzing around far more likely to trouble them.
  8. Well I was just trying to make what I hoped was a helpful observation that might not have occurred to others either rather than set myself up to be shot at. That will learn me.
  9. One thing that I hadn’t thought about until it was explained to me was that disabled people sometimes need to be able to access the toilet immediately, it’s not just a case of needing easy access facilities/more space etc. Wouldn’t nip in now where there is a long queue for the other toilets thinking that it wouldnt cause anyone a problem.
  10. Me too - recommended, really good.
  11. It was so noticeable I wondered whether it had been a specific instruction for this game. So much better to watch than how we were playing earlier in the season in any event.
  12. Played really well and also looks to have a bit of an edge about him too. In the Huddersfield game the BBC Leeds commentator said he was a “ratty little player” and meant it as a complement!
  13. You’re missing the point I was making which was simply that the prices we got for them look to be good at this point. Whether they should have been sold (don’t think we had a choice, they wanted to go), whether we have adequately replaced them (no) or used the money receiveved to improve the squad (doesn’t look like it at this stage) is something entirely different.
  14. The point I was making was slightly different - that it looks that the club maybe sold those players at the right time (arguable!) but most importantly rmaximised the price we got. That’s different from taking credit for getting those players in, developing them etc. We seem have improved in this respect as a club at least (I remember the days of selling cheap and forgetting to include sell-ons!).
  15. It’s an interesting one. I’m no fan of his. However, on the other hand, £15m for Kodjia, £10m for Bobby (or whatever it was) and £7m for Joe when we had Lloyd coming through does look like pretty good business now?
