  1. Hugely important to keep this run going, interestingly Leeds next three games are: Nottingham Forest Brentford Then Us! That second spot is going to be wide open for whoever can put a very good run together.
  2. "Pride goeth before the fall" unfortunately, I feel.
  3. Must say, considering we haven't had the chance of building support up from a forray into the top flight, that's a damn good effort from us. Bì7 eating a few who have come down and going toe to toe with those with much more recent success. Away followings will always suffer due to our location but I'd imagine we're in the top 5, if not the top 3, of the most travelled sides.
  4. I don't think our defence is a huge problem, our goals against shows how much losing our best defenders has cost us, it should improve once we are back to full strength. Having said that, in just 4 games or roughly 20% of the season to date, we've conceded 13 goals or nearly 50% of our conceded goals for the season so far! Leeds 3-1 Preston 3-3 Luton 3-0 WBA 4-1 That leaves 15 goals spread out over the other 16 games, that's pretty decent to be fair, we just need to cut out these high scoring defeats/losses.
  5. Been thinking this for a while, think he could flourish in a 4-3-3. He's good out on the wing but it does limit him what he can do. Having him sit a bit more tucked in, say in line with the edge of the 18 yard box, it would open up alot more areas for him to attack. He's also got a good shot on him, I'm positive he'd bang in a few more goals from that position.
  6. Percisely this, had we had Kalas, Nagy and Dasilva avaliable for the season up till now, I'm positive we'd have conceded a few less. Goals aren't so much a problem at the moment, we just need to get our injured back, match fit and firing.
  7. They can, as long as they fall outside a certain window. Can't remember the precise hours but it was something like, kick-offs between 14:15 - 17:45 can't be shown on live TV on Saturdays, possibly Sundays too but not sure.
  8. Just putting this here for anyone interested. Now TV are offering a month of Sky Sports for £9.99. Pretty good deal tbh, just scroll down towards the bottom of the page. Deal ends tonight. https://www.nowtv.com/offers
  9. How does eveyone think we might do? I wouldn't be shocked at a slow start to the season, lots of new faces to integrate, so don't think it will be until the second half of the season we fully hit our stride. Strengthed and improved in vital areas only missing a CB, however Moore, Baker and Wright to fighting it out to play alongside Kalas is not a bad second option. A good number of exciting signings and on paper I feel this team is stronger than the one that finish last season. If we can get the best out of Afobe I feel we can sneak into the playoffs this season, so I'm going for 5th for us.
  10. With every transfer there is some risk and the risk with Reid is, can he reproduce that season again with us?. On a positive note, having both Reid and Weimann on the pitch together could cause havoc with their movement.
  11. Patersons biggest problem is he just holds onto the ball too long or tries to take everyone on himself. If he cuts that out and was abit more streetwise with the ball you'd see an instant improvement with him. If the penny finally drops for him he could be a very good player.
  12. Totally agree and it was reflected on the pitch yesterday. Some things (like multiple free roaming forward players, amongst others) he was trying wasn't working in pre season and again, didn't work yesterday. Just wondering if he's trying to be too clever or perhaps we simply don't have the players for what he's trying, probably a mix of the two, most likely.
  13. I'd assume if LJ gets to spend a large portion of the Webster money on players then there will be an expectation from the board of a top 6 finish. Can't imagine finishing 8th again or lower would go down well. Lets hope he spends the money wisely.
  14. Agree, ideally you'd want Palmer in the hole behind a front two. That's where he performs best imo.
  15. No, probably not, but feel a bit better getting it out of my system
