Brentford looked 2 leagues better than Hull, who were a shambles at the back although admittedly against the best forward line in the league.

5 losses in a row heading into the game with us and their best 2 players gone

windermereROYAL Goodness me Hull look poor without their 2 star players, not a shot on target after 75 minutes.

What about the shot for the goal ... oh !


Brentford’s 3rd goal was very neat. Probably my favourite team of our rivals.

It was a great goal. Almost Leeds-esque.

Was Wigan’s goal Leeds-Esque as well?

No, it lacked class.

Leeds getting screwed over once again. The Football League are going to carry on doing this to Leeds, they know Leeds getting promoted will more or less kill the interest in their product.

Save the Leeds mocking until they drop out of the top 2, which is looking more and more likely as the season progresses.

We aren’t going anywhere so the prospect of Leeds fcuking it up again is next best entertainment.

So are Wigan the best team in the league now? I forget what the rules are.

Isn't it great to watch football in a competitive league. Rather than a one sided money takes all.........

Leeds should still be ok to finish at least 6th with their 8 point cushion.

They're 15th in the form table with Fulham, Brentford, Bristol and Forest all chasing hard in the top 6.

Their saving grace is WBA 21st and Preston 14th, although Swansea are 9th. WBA got to improve with their signings surely?

Traditional Bielsa squeaky bum February in Yorkshire's finest scumpit.

Their keeper is proper dodgy at times - dunno what was going on for that goal today

It does seem that every time one of the chasing pack really get a good chance to really put the pressure on they screw up - ie Forest losing to Brum today. Had they ended today 1 point behind Leeds you’d really fancy them

There's at least 3 of the chances they missed that the Allan Clarke today could have finished (and he's 73).

They actually made it look like they were trying not to score :shock:

Allan Clarke...now there was a player...and during my adolescence a footballing hero.

Remember him at EP playing then managing Barnsley....the wonderment soon wore off

He was the classy version of Robin Friday (well, the bandy legged bit anyway)
Seemed to have loads of brothers that all played (Wayne, Frank, Derek - no idea if Kelvin was a footballer)

Casilla and Bamford are the 2 highest paid players at Leeds (both on >£30,000 a week) and they are their 2 biggest liabilities IMO.

Casilla's been throwing one in every week since the start of December.

Leeds next two games are away to Forest and Brentford, they could be out of the top 2 and looking over their shoulder at 7th before too long.
