    This will show em!!!!





    Dear EFL

    Would you please stop removing Leeds Utd live games from the internet.

    Due to your interference we missed the wining goal; lucky for you it was Leeds that won, otherwise we might have taken action against you.

    We had to go to the trouble of finding other working links, and could have missed vital parts of the game.

    I do not expect to have our streams interrupted in the future.

    You have been warned

    Lots of love


    Neil in Scotland

    I admit that I give Harrison stick. It's not that I think he is a poor player, it's just that I think he could be so much better. I'm going to put his finishing to one side but he can give Bamford a run for his money when it comes to missing easy chances.

    He has all the skill in the world, he is quick, he has a good engine, a great work ethic and seems to read the game well defensively. However, his end product is lacking. The main reason is that he gets the ball and beats his man then the players in the box make their runs but he seems to want to go back and beat his man again. By the time and a big IF he manages to swing the ball in then our lads are static in the box. Makes it highly unlikely that we create a big chance. That has a follow on effect as when it does go in early the rest of the team have delayed their runs trying to anticipate what he is going to do.

    So with Harrison it's a case of 'look at what you coulda won'. He' d be far more dangerous if he shifted it out of his feet and slung it in early everytime so everyone knows what's happening. Beckham made a career out of it.

    Dunno what people problem with Costa is. He's on the wrong side but looks super smooth. Defenders are terrified of him. It pulls their defence all over the place even when he doesn't get the ball.

    Have to agree re Harrison he fannys around like he's never seen one. Or he's one of those fifa players being controlled by a muppet.

    Evening chaps, just got home from the game, a good win I suppose, another scrappy goal, although Pablo did well, conditions weren't great for a football match, we look like Premier league in the middle of the pitch, as soon as we get near the i8 yard box we're like sunday pub league, absolutely ****e, Harrison, Costa and Bamford the main culprits as usual, its like some ****er flicks a switch when they get in the penalty area and they haven't a clue what to do, but i'll take a 1 nil every day of the week. 5 point cushion from 3rd place, its well and truly in our hands, we can only beat ourselves, if only we could take our chances, stop ****ing about in the oppo's area we'd be almost home and dry now
    Got my ale in and settling down for the Pikey King to knock the ****ing pony out of Wilder now<ok>:emoticon-0146-punch

    Same here mate, apparently that's why Ben Davison was replaced because Fury's old man reckons he's better at 19 stone+ whereas Davison wanted him lighter

    Pikey said he’ll knock Wilder out in the second round. Best odds are Boyle Sports online, 66/1 put £10 on it they’ll give you a £5 bet free, put that fiver on too and you’re getting £990 back if he’s right

    Fury would be better boxing his ears off . Wilder only needs one opening punchers chance that's all he has.

    Might just do that Ristac, although i'm not a betting man I've been watching the build up over the weeks and Fury and his old man are very confident of knocking Wilder out, could be just pikey talk though, I mean, there's loads of Pikey Kings, they all say they are the King, maybe they should unify that title first, on a side note go on youtube and see some of those daft bastards offering each other out, ****ing hilarious <ok>

    True, but it only takes one punch bud, fury is by far the better boxer

    The problem is quite simple. £15m. Harrison will cost half of that & is far, far more productive moving forward with assists, goals, etc. Harrison is also able defensively & puts in the miles & the tackles. Now I may have missed it, but I don't recall Hilda putting in a decent tackle, far less putting in a sound defensive performance. Not once. Where is our £15m worth of assists & goals?

    Harrison may be an irritation to some, but he makes far more of a contribution in an average match as Costa has produced in his best match. Pretty sure if Alioski was played on the wing regularly, he'd give Costa a showing up too, especially as he's supposed to have cost a little over £2m.

    Agree with all that but thing is we’ve had those identical problems for almost two seasons now so not likely to change. Just hope we can scrape enough one goal wins from here to the end of season

    Hope the knacker is battered. Can’t stand knackers. I know we’ve a few on here so I apologise if I’ve hurt your feelings. I’ve had far too many run ins with the bastards through the years. Only good ones a dead one

    I still maintain the primary reason you didn’t go up last year is because Sheffield were brilliant second half of the season.

    If you just emulate your form from last season for these last 12 games you’ll go up IMO.
