    Eye up,

    Noel Hunt has admitted he has had a disappointing start to his Elland Road career. The 30-year-old joined us on a two-year deal in the summer following his release from Reading, where he spent four years playing under McDermott

    Hunt said, "I want things to be right on the day but it hasn`t been, I`ll be the first to admit that. All I can do is work hard and make sure that I get it right for the future."

    Is Hunt good enough for an automatic starting position?


    On 31st August, before our 1-0 home defeat to Queens Park Rangers, the Leeds players lined up in front of the Elland Road West Stand and proceeded to wave to the four sides of the ground led by captain Rodolph Austin.

    The Elland Road wave was made famous by Don Revie’s famous ‘Super Leeds’ team of the late 1960s and 1970s and its return at the end of the month marked the 50th anniversary of former Leeds midfielder Johnny Giles’ debut for the side.

    Don Revie’s superstitions

    Former ER legent Don Revie won numerous honours during his time in charge of the Whites. Revie won the Football League Second Division within three years of taking charge at Elland Road and went on to lift the First Division trophy twice, the FA Cup, the Football League Cup as well as the Fairs Cup on two occasions. His tenure as Leeds boss, however, did not get off to a flying start and Revie even went as far as to hire a gypsy to lift the curse that he believed.

    Are you superstitious?

    Any rituals you carry out?

    Do you have a good luck charm?

    Do you not believe in superstition? Would you be happy to walk under a ladder, or break a mirror?

    Neil Warnock shares a superstitious personality similar to that of the great Don Revie.

    On an unbeaten run, Neil Warnock’s matchday routine follows the exact same sequence of events as the week previous. From following the same route to the ground, wearing the same lucky suit and living in constant fear of seeing a solitary Magpie, Warnock told The Sun in 2007 that ”I won’t even visit the toilet until the players are on the pitch. There are 300 different superstitions”.

    Perhaps the most bizarre of Warnock’s reported superstitions is a fascination with traffic lights, whereby he’ll stop at them all on the way home following a win – regardless of whether or not they’re on red!

    Warnock will also try to replicate everything he did before the next game, once admitting he’d been using the same razorblade for three and a half weeks. During his time at QPR, the Leeds United manager also refused to give press conferences during an unbeaten run in fear of “jinxing” his team

    Morning all. Caption competition - I'm sure this wasn't in the karma Sutra

    On superstitions, I always stop after 9 pints 'cause the 10th always seems to be off!!!

    On Hunt, I don't think he's good enough to start, but I don't really know as we haven't seen the best of him yet. But much will depend on the formation BMD plays and where Ross fits in to that formation. As things stand, he's at the head of a diamond formation with 2 others up top. However, I think Diouf would be brilliant in that position, which would then allow Ross to play in a more forward role. Given that Varney and Poleon are already ahead of him in selection, I doubt Hunt would feature that much until such time as BMD starts rotating players.

    Morning one and all, and hope everyone's really chuffed about last nights superb, stunning England performance ..... SHYTE. Got to feel for the Irish boys though, and not expecting Eire to be sober yet after last night :emoticon-0119-puke:

    Ken Bates went looking for the gypsy and paid her a few quid to put the curse back, and another one to make us look the other way as trucks loaded with cash left ER. Wonder what Don would have done about Bates, because he had some serious run-ins with Manny Cousins, but won more than he lost. Putting that Super Leeds thing together was brilliant marketing at a time when marketing was only done down Kirgate. Sock tags etc were brilliant and gave the team belief that they were special.

    Morning all. Struggling to focus on Leeds stuff today after another awful night for my national side. And I didnt even manage a drink Doc. Probably just as well cos I wouldnt have stopped. Biggest joke of the night was Green getting man of the match. He hardly touched the ball all night and the most telling comment came from Liam Brady that we are becoming the next Wales and Scotland, never in contention for qualification. Still, could be worse. Green is probably worth an extra million this morning and I could be from Northern Ireland

    Morning all, I wish people would get off the back of Green, it's not his fault he was picked for the side, blame the stubborn, Italian with an ego. As for Brady and his brown nosing of Trap, made me want to puke. Brady must be one of the most miserable pundits I've seen and it was great to see Dunphy get into him. Anyway who is the next poor fecker to get the job.

    Morning all <ok>

    First day back in the office today <grr>

    England game was everything I thought it would be unfortunately. Obviously didnt see the Ireland game due to the clash and I cant believe how far Wales have fallen after looking so promising under Gary Speed.

    could be worse, could be Millwall <laugh>

    Coleman is the only person in Wales who thinks he's the right man for the job. The best thing that happened to Wales was Coleman losing his passport and the squad leaving without him. Unfortunatley he got another and turned up later at the hotel.

    Poor Gary Speed must be turning in his grave (pardon the pun) but he had them organised and playing well and even made England look second best. The Welsh players all wanted to show what they could do, and then they went back 5-years once Coleman took over. No wonder the Dutch coack Speed had was gutted not to be offered the job himself, so that he could carry on with Speeds ideas ....

    Strachan seems to have got the jocks playing well and getting some decent results, but NI last night was a disgrace and poor old Trapps side is nowhere and needs a rethink by the suits at the FIA

    It's possible I suppose. What was yer ma's maiden name ;)

    Morning. I wonder has anyone ever looked at betting patterns in Norn Iron games. Beat Russia, give Portugal a scare and mess up against Luxembourg, Faroe Islands etc. If those sort of results happened to a conference side there would be all sorts of investigations.
