  1. A pretty standard request amongst footballers wasn't it..? How many at which clubs, simply agreed to reducing their wages..? https://www-leeds--live-co-uk.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.leeds-live.co.uk/sport/leeds-united/leeds-united-news-wage-deferral-18120175.amp?amp_js_v=a6&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQHKAFQArABIA%3D%3D#aoh=16135244430459&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.leeds-live.co.uk%2Fsport%2Fleeds-united%2Fleeds-united-news-wage-deferral-18120175
  2. Would that be on the 23rd April, when they DID agree to a wage deferral, as they were requested to do..?
  3. Can someone point out some valid reasons that the manager who currently has his underdog team sat clear at the top of League one, would be such a dreadful option? - rather than just post stupid gifts...! Would he excite me...? No Is he a logical option to consider..? Has to be, doesn't he..?
  4. Not my choice either, but "not flying with Cardiff" ..? P6, W4, D2, L0.
  5. Unless his instructions were "don't shoot" then what's been stopping them..?
  6. The baffling thing is that surely, surely... DH hasn't told the players not to try and score goals.... What is the excuse for half decent, championship level players, to be such a lack of a goal scoring threat, week after week...? I mean, not even a 20 yard effort in anger, from anyone.... Surely that isn't instructed, so what's going on...?
  7. No, I wouldn't. I expect he was told he's got 2 games to turn things around. Highly probable he will be in charge on Saturday, unless there's another capitulation in this second half.
  8. "best wishes for a full and speedy recovery Steve. We've all been sorry to hear you've been in hospital and know that if anyone can beat the virus, you can!" Thanks Marie.
  9. They have that written on every game, until someone scores. Sorry.

    Would that be the Michael Appleton who currently has his Lincoln (LINCOLN) side top of league 1, but people wouldn't want because despite his current success, he knows MA, so is to be ridiculed for no other reason..?

    I honestly think that has nothing to do with it. Surely they were just there as fans..? I think Lampard's stock is a little higher than that and he'd be looking at a kind of Southampton, Palace, Newcastle, West Ham type job as suitable, unless no offers come his way, then I guess he'd have to look at the Championship again.
  12. Bar BS3


    Yeah, possibly. I'll back whoever is next, until they prove themselves to be the wrong one for us. I just can't see Lampard being anywhere near in our ball park of realistic targets, having just left Chelsea. He's "A list" now. We are probably having a fumble with a geriatric Demi Moore, at best...! Of course Howe can point to an impressive CV, he might be amazing here. I'm just not convinced that lower league promotions (years ago) and then being part of a regime that cheated their way to the Premier league (however well they did there for a few years, once they had that inc

    I ignored it as bollocks but that Rory dealien idiot has posted in several places that Mark Hughes is in line already. Really doesn't inspire me.

    I'm really not convinced by Eddie Howe. His success came off the back over overspending with almost unlimited recourses. We don't work like that (rightly so). Of course I can admire what he achieved with Bournemouth, but I'm not convinced about HOW he did it. His only forray away from Bournemouth was a failure (Burnley) and I think his demands would be too costly for someone with his limited track record, IMHO. Cook and Pearson are always names I've fancied here. I was keen on Hughton, although that's obviously water under the bridge now. Those saying Lampard must be de
  15. Of course, I fully agree with that. I just don't think a narrow, harsh, defeat will necessarily cause the axe to fall, as long as there's a marked reaction and signs of significant improvement. However, with the upcoming fixtures, including Barnsley, who are flying now, I can't see us getting anything like the improvement needed for Dean to still be in situ in a week or twos time.
  16. Well that would clearly suggest no marked improvement. What I mean is, battling well, doing all we can and putting 100% into the game is required. If that leads to a defeat, but signs of a reaction are there, then simply not being good enough, or being unfortunate, are very different to lack of effort or application - which is untenable.
  17. I personally don't think the result will determine Dean's tenure. Anyone can lose any game in this division. Tonight (and upcoming games) are all about seeing if the players are up for the fight and that Dean can get that reaction out of them. Injuries DO impact results. They should effect effort and application - even if depleted recourses mean we simply aren't good enough to pick up points. A failure to look like we are at least trying to turn things around tonight, or in any of the upcoming, very tough, next 5/6 games, and he'll be gone imo. That may well end with 1
  18. He must have misunderstood when he heard the old adage that the Women in Stoke are a bunch of Dogs.... It's always nice to think of DC being disappointed..
  19. Should be easy enough. Pompey couldn't even beat us..!
  20. If you had a season ticket, at todays prices, every year for the last 20 years - congratulations, that's covered Nahki Wells wages from about the past 3 days
  21. Whereas everything has been lovely and rosey for your lot in the last couple of weeks..! I don't think this is a Rovers decision, but I'm damned sure that they will have been more than happy with any excuse to not have a game this weekend.
  22. I think people are being a bit naive if they think it's a dead cert that DH won't be in charge come the Reading game. Lots of people jumping to conclusions, but I'm not sure anything will be changed, yet at least. Another hammering (quite possible) in the next couple of games and then it has to be done - but I don't think it will yet. Having said that, I agree that today was a culmination of recent bad performances, mixed in with the odd reasonable display. A heavy defeat has been on the cards, but is an anomily. Should it be repeated anytime soon, then I think it
