Pepe the Horseman Leeds have been good, but getting a bit bored of the commentators gushing over every little thing they do, and the disappointment in their voices when something doesn't come off.


They excelled themselves when they started moaning about the low attendance. The effing arrogance of Sky, not acknowledging the effect that they are having on attendances! :twisted:

Hound Was a struggle that

2 brilliant finishes and it’s game over. We looked like a side missing the players we were. Blunt up front, the U23s look like boys and too many errors at the back. Swift was useless esp in the 1st

Played ok at times but big gulf in class tbh

I assume they're all minus scores, and rightfully so.


This is the sort of comment that makes me really angry.

We are playing a team likely to get promoted who have shown very clinical finishing.

We are massively under strength and battling relegation.

The first 10-13 minutes we dominated and looked very promising.

We are not playing very well, but If you’re not going to be supportive to the team or realistic then find somewhere else to vent such claptrap.

That's right lads you can't say anything negative about the team because JR says so. Don't dare tell the truth about how utterly spineless we have been because it will hurt JR's feelings.


Well that’s a massively mature and constructive response.

If you want I’ll tell you how lightweight and useless Swift was tonight and how I’m disappointed we invited unnecessary pressure on in the first half through our distribution at the back.

But don’t slag me off for criticising a poster who claims that every player should have negative points.

I actually valued your opinion on this board previously.

Snowflake Royal Swift plays like he's in a school playground showing off against 10 year olds, not against a quality physical side.


Agreed, his demeanour and even his physical look is just laxidasical

It was our second highest attendance of the season, and given it was live on SkySPortAction and the weather was shite, I'd say it wasn't a bad turnout considering. Our average now is only 14559.

Had Oliveira not been crocked, that score could have been a lot closer. Wasted several good chances with poor finishing and also created numerous good opportunities/openings only for a final ball to screw them up. Baldock would also have helped in that respect.

Disappointed by the result but thought the performance was pretty good, particularly given the way we were down to the bare bones in terms of fit players.

And for all the Swift critics, try watching the game again with your blinkers off. He battled away, got stuck in far more than he used to and made several good challenges to either hold up their moves or break them down. Very unfair to criticise any of our players for not getting stuck in tonight. Gomes really has got them up for the battle and has kept them up, regardless of set backs.

If we are 3-0 down at home you have to expect that reaction on here though.

What is a concern is all we have is Meite and Loader to lead the line, doesn`t fill you with confidence does it?

Hopefully they'll embarrass themselves next season like media darlings Fulham did.


My favourite part was when one of the commentators joined in with a Leeds chant. :lol: You couldn't write it.

Criticism of Swift is more being pushed off the ball easily time and again and abysmal set pieces than not challenging.

Went over like blow up ten pin in a stiff breeze for their first.

Meite would be a big improvement on Loader. When we have Barrow, Meite, McCleary and Harriott all available, how Loader starts upfront I have no idea.

I will never get over how easy it is to wind up Leeds fans. Never.

The most insecure fanbase in the country.

To a certain extent maybe. What annoyed me more was the chat outside the stadium on the walk to the bus.

“Worst I’ve ever seen us play”, “how dreadful are we”.....etc.....wish people like that would get some context in their lives.

I still had a great night out - had a few beers, caught up with mates, got excited a few times and we got the same amount of points that I expected.

Apart from it being bloody freezing, still a decent night out.

It's the same on this forum. Far more people discuss matches which are televised!

I reckon they’ll do well in the Prem. Can see Bielsa sticking with the majority of the side that get them up rather than making the wholesale changes Fulham did.

They'll be unbearable in the Premier League. At least we won't have to see them for a while.
