    8 points off the play-offs. We should be looking up rather than looking down. Stuff the Cup!
    Big week coming up for us.

    Why do we have to play him? Let's be honest, he surely cant get in a 3 behind a striker over Eze, Chair and Samuel. A sub at best!

    Totally agree mate. I would never pick Clarke over Eze, chair or BOS. Clarke has literally had 4 good games in his entire career. Leeds could be done for fraud, selling him for 10m.!! Hes a lovely lad and a decent player. No way better than anyone we already have. Saying that, I would start him over Pugh any day of the week. What Pugh brings to the team baffles me. He chases a lot, usually to no avail and then looks absolutely clueless in possession!

    It’s the Samuel & BOS partnership that excites me most.

    Football is a funny old game. Leeds fans are well happy to get 10m for clarke but then may end up paying 15m for costa who is again ****e!!! All these figures surely on current form puts BOS in the 30m bracket. Stupid money but relative in today's market!

    Fair enough.
    I personally don't think we're anywhere near good enough to get into the play offs, especially with a coach who can't resist tinkering.

    I understand the tinkering to an extent, especially over a busy winter schedule but and it's a big BUT, if BOS was ok to go on the bench and come on, then why not start him and try get in front, then take him off if necessary. I'm a firm believer in starting your strongest team in every game or at least the most inform players. I was shocked that Chair came off instead of Pugh! I said to my lad that it was game over there and then. Kanes drive to hugill was obviously a fluke cos the **** cant usually pass to someone from 5 yards! Manning doesnt look like the player who started the season, most likely due to interest from other clubs.

    The singing was better in The Loft. More just supportive chants. Sorry about your experience.

    With our goal difference that’s effectively 9, which is a huge ask. It would be extraordinary if we were able to win 3 games more than our many peers given our inconsistency but I’m up for the chase.

    Totally agree....I still don't understand the signing of Clarke and what it's supposed to achieve.....but if it was deemed necessary to rotate then the cup is probably the place to do it.....I'm just a bit hacked off that we've basically kissed goodbye to potential £500k in prize money and a chance to get a decent way in the competition.....
    Still I fancy us for a dart at the play offs if we can keep BOS, Eze and Wells beyond next weekend....

    That under par performance has cost a home tie with Man City.

    Dodged a bullet there, who'd want to watch us getting humiliated by 7 or 8 at home?...

    regardless of the fact we may have got beaten, surely the players would have used this as a chance to prove themselves against world class players? If I was a young player that would have been my mind set plus I would love to have Sergio Aguero's shirt.

    That c*nt has helped himself to loads of goals against us, as a supporter I don't like seeing us look so second-rate on national TV. When we eventually learn how to defend properly I'd welcome the challenge...

    Shrewsbury didn't do too bad even with Sean Goss in their midfield

    It would of been great for our players, and the Club with a full house, and probably TV money too.
