    Leeds Live The Dream

    DID LEEDS GET LUCKY? Absolutely not. This was a fully deserved win by a team who paid for their victory in blood and in sweat and in tears. Leeds United may have spent the last two and a half years in the third flight of English football, but if this result is anything to go by, they're on...

    4 -5 -1 ( or 4 -2 -3 -1) while the squad is thin

    Given our currently limited resources and our weak defence, anyone see any merit in changing the formation round to protect the back four more? For example, Macca 7/10 and Christophe could take the defensive role in front of the back four allowing Moussa to move into a central forward midfield...

    Gillett - The Worst A Club Can Get

    There was something entirely predictable about the news that George Gillett has already begun to apportion blame for Liverpool's poor start to the season. Speaking to supporters before September's crushing 6-1 victory over Hull, their fourth league win on the bounce, the American announced, "If...
  7. Get a Grip!

    Yesterday's performance was dire. I've not been able to make some of the much better games recently so if anyone should be complaining about how rubbish we must be it would be me. What I couldn't understand from some of the fans yesterday and having just seen some of the posts on here is some...

  9. Legalise drugs article.

    Taken from the New Scientist, fascinating article that I totally agree with. I know it's an age old topic on here but it's a slow day. Far from protecting us and our children, the war on drugs is making the world a much more dangerous place. SO FAR this year, about 4000 people have died in...

    Pistol-Whip The Cheats

    Nothing irritates me more than diving. Seriously, it's right up there above noisy eating, people who play tinny R'n'B through their cellphones on the bus and that invisible scratch on my West Wing DVD that smashes straight through the important bit ten minutes into every episode when you're...

    Let's be clear...

    We are in no worse a situation than we have been for the last four seasons. I had a 20 minute conversation with Tilly the day after the home defeat by Port Vale when we first got back into L1. Back then he thought the division would be incredibly difficult and we wouild do well to survive...

    Rafa Should Sign Owen

    Today, more than ever, we need to understand the importance of recycling. We live in a world of diminishing resources, held together by the discredited remains of unbridled capitalism. Only through use and re-use of our assets, can we live greener, happier lives. All the more reason, therefore...

    Ancelotti Needs Time

    Roman Abramovich has made his decision. Now let's see if he'll stick with it. The appointment of Carlo Ancelotti as his fifth manager in under two years may have been met with a mixed response from the fans, but the identity of the man is less important than the duration of his tenure. Chelsea...

    Who Would You Be? Bill or Roman?

    Who would you rather be this summer? Multi-billionaire owner of Chelsea, Roman Abramovich or reasonably wealthy owner of Everton, Bill Kenwright. Think carefully before you choose, there's more to this than meets the eye. Kenwright may have left Wembley empty-handed on Saturday night, but at...

    Gavin Rose?

    Question Should we be aiming for the automatics next season ?

    Forget all this negative stuff- no money - lots of key players leaving - no war chest etc etc and forget the wishy washy 'top six finish will be doing well with such limited resources' --- what's wrong with saying from the outset next season that only the top two will do and anything else will...

    Return Of The Old Guard

    How very retro. There was a time when any game between Arsenal and Manchester United was epoch-shaking. They were the two giants of the domestic game, battling out their own private war while the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and, this'll make you laugh, Newcastle could only look on from the...
