Re: Thames Valley Whites (Leeds United Supporters Club)

I though so too but he started boasting about his £120,000 house, which in Leeds buys you a 3 bed semi in a shit part of the city.

Re: West Haha Ham

You're right, much as I hate West Ham and their "We won the World Cup, Academy of Football, Saint Trev, Gor Blimey Cockney Sparrah" schtick, not many clubs would turn down the offer that was presented to them and I don't take delight in it specifically being West Ham, It's just symbolic of...

Re: West Haha Ham

What pisses me off is the original plan for the Olympic stadium was that it was built to be easily reduced to capacity of 20,000 and maintained as a public asset to benefit the community, all as part of our Great Olympic LOLegacy, But no, it gets given to those claret & blue tossers and converte...

Re: James Wilson

I'm not sure what he offers that Novakovich couldn't? I hadn't realised (but am not that surprised) quite how much of a stormer Novakovich is having at Telstar... Little bit of Telstar trivia; I know Jacob Walcott went on loan there about 6 years ago but the Reading link goes back to the early 1960...

Re: Simon Cox interview on his favourite goals

A victim of bad timing throughout his Reading career. 2006-08 was a bad time for an academy player to be trying to break into the first team and 2014 was just a bad time full stop to be a Reading player.

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

To be fair, it's only a couple of posters playing tinpot bingo.

There was little love lost in the Warnock era but generally, they come across as a decent bunch and Bramhall Lane is the one away ground that has a consistently decent atmosphere.

Re: Thames Valley Whites (Leeds United Supporters Club)

I like Manchester as a place go out in but having lived there, it's not the safest place. On the local news, there's a report of a knifing in Manchester just about every day. Mancs are quite charismatic but incredibly arrogant. Liverpool has it's problems but with it being a major port, most of it r...

Re: Thames Valley Whites (Leeds United Supporters Club)

I think the people are the product of their environment. With Yorkshire, most of the large towns and cities are industrial and situated in valleys so they have a hemmed in and claustrophobic feel to them. I compare it to Liverpool which is flat and coastal and it just has a much greater feeling of o...

Re: Thames Valley Whites (Leeds United Supporters Club)

Not all Northerners are unfriendly. I've found Scousers to be open, warm, friendly and very community spirited, completely at odds with the stereotypical image of them being a bunch of workshy, aggressive petty criminals, and the polar opposite of the insular, surly oafs found further east along the...

Re: Leeds v RFC Back from the Tele

Is that a couple of Sheffield Wednesday players in there? I know they're thick in Leeds but I never thought they'd be that thick as to mixed the two clubs up just because we both play in blue and white.

Anyone hear Christiansen's bizarre post match comments about not criticising refs because that's how foreign managers lose their job? Not withstanding that Arsene Wenger is the longest serving manager in England and has made a career out of criticising officials, that's sounds like a manager strugg...

Re: Leeds v RFC Back from the Tele

What was the argument around our goal? They believed there was a foul in the build up. Bloody diddums I say Bacuna(?) was in a tussle with Hernandez (I think it was those two, can't remember exactly), there was a bit of shirt pulling and shoving on both sides. Hernandez stretched for the ball and f...

Yeah, a bit disappointed to only take a point from Lancaster considering the number of chances they created.

Nah, only kidding, that was Farsley. They real answer is they were delighted with 6-0 thumping of Shildon in the FA Cup.

Re: The Relegation Years

In 88 and 98, the squads were shit. In 2008, we didn't strengthen in January.

Bit early to suggest a continuation of the the pattern.

Re: RUMOUR - Gary Megson

Apparently former WBA and Sheffield Wednesday manager Gary Megson was spotted in the stands at the Norwich game fuelling rumours that Stam's time could almost be up and the owners are looking to go for a more traditional-minded, British manager. He definitely knows the league, do you think he'd be ...
