So we now know the club that beat us in the playoff semis last year cheated.  And the club that beat them in the final cheated.  Another classic Leeds story - up there with the corruption that denied us all we deserved in the 70s.  Beaten not by better football but by dishonest cheats.

A message from the beautiful man :

How embarrassing it will be IF the supposed self proclaimed "leading world football league" " the best league in the world" ...." brand Premier League" ...cannot get itself organised....is dictated to by some clubs to the point where it's null and voided. Yet Germany even Spain and Italy all look to have things sorted ready to rock and roll. I don't know of any other league in the world , including amateur leagues, junior leagues , where the individual  clubs dictate to the leagues committees....crazy. Shouldn't it be league to participants " Here's how we are going to move forward, heres your instructions and the safety guidelines,here are the rules, here's your fixtures dates . Failure to fullfil any fixture will be met with that said match points awarded to the opposite team......good luck and may the best teams win" 
What a cartel of self serving wankers who disrespect the sport.  On the radio the other day they interviewed 3 managers from 3 Bundesleague clubs , all struggling to escape being relegated..Herta Berlin,Fortuna Dusseldorf,FSC Mainz....all said virtually the same. All ( including players and staff) happy to , and felt duty bound to contribute to the lifting the moral of the whole country. All happy to have been given the chance to be able to play themselves out of trouble. All agreed its better to have their league destiny in their own hands. A fighting chance. All looked forward to playing again. What brilliant attitudes .
They should replay the whole piece to those wankers when they have their meeting on Monday with the Premier chiefs (wimps). 

The actual Hummel prototype kit
Positives: all white, the Yorkshire rose embossing, clean and uncluttered 
Negatives: weird white on white chevrons on sleeves (come out cream coloured), the badge - too small (and - for the prototype a weird plastic glue on thing, rather than embroidered), detailing on collar (perhaps)
I guess some of it is down to it being a prototype - so not a full manufactured product.  interesting nevertheless as a kind of "alternate universe" LUFC


It's been on the radio today (6PR) thats Leeds are playing a game against scum in sunny Perth next year. I didn't hear it myself but a few Perth based Leeds fans did. 
All I can say is get the fuck in there!!

I think his playing style is more like Giles personally but everything else about this man screams Strachan .. a talisman - leader and complete example to everyone at the club with quality to spare ...dragging us forward ... have we ever had a more complete professional at our club since the wee man joined ?

Leeds defender Gaetano Berardi will miss the home game against Nottingham Forest with a hamstring injury.
Barry Douglas (hamstring) is also out, but the Championship leaders have Pontus Jansson available again after suspension.
Forest will make a late call on the fitness of captain Danny Fox, who sat out their 3-0 win at Bolton in midweek.
Midfield duo Ben Osborn and Matty Cash, who both came on as substitutes against Bolton, could be in line to start.
Match facts
Leeds have won two of their last three league matches against Nottingham Forest (D1) - they had won none of their eight prior to this run (D3 L5). Since scoring seven goals in a 7-3 win in March 2012, Nottingham Forest have scored just four goals in six league matches at Elland Road against Leeds. Leeds United playmaker Pablo Hernandez is creating a chance, on average, every 24 minutes in the Championship this season - the best ratio of any player to play 500 minutes; he has registered four assists, with only Conor Hourihane assisting more (5). Nottingham Forest have won their last two away matches - as many as in their previous 22 away games in all competitions; Forest haven't won three consecutive away league matches since March 2013 under Billy Davies. Leeds United haven't dropped a single point from leading positions in the Championship this season, winning all seven games in which they've gone ahead. Nottingham Forest manager Aitor Karanka has never won a league match at Elland Road (P3 W0 D1 L2) - his first Championship match was a 1-2 loss away at Leeds in November 2013 as Middlesbrough manager.

BPF - 8 not much to do but distribution excellent. 
Ayling - 8 back to something like his best
Phillips - 10 simply lovely. Faultless display. 
Coops - 8 great finish and only a couple of dodgy moments. 
Berardi - 5 not on long enough but was looking like an imminyred card. 
Alioski - 7 better buy he needs to be more consistent with his crossing and hit the target more when shooting. 
Dallas - 7 much better display from Stuie. 
Harrison - 5 poor. 
Pablo - 10 what a player. Best in the championship. 
Saiz - 6 not having the same impact as at the start of the season. 
Roofe - 7 good goal and worked hard. We have missed him. 
Klich - 7 another good dispubuy better in the second than the first. 
Pearce - 6 slotted in nicely. 
Forshaw - 7 played well and should have scored. Maybe a starter on Saturday.

WED 24 OCT 2018 CHAMPIONSHIP - KO 7:45pm
TV CHANNEL: Sky Sports Red Button
Leeds United are without centre-back Pontus Jansson who is serving a one-match ban for his comments after their draw with Brentford earlier this month.
Jack Harrison, Luke Ayling and Pablo Hernandez all return for the Whites.
Under-pressure Ipswich Town boss Paul Hurst could ring the changes, with his side bottom of the Championship.
He has no fresh injury worries but will be without defender Myles Kenlock (hamstring) and striker Ellis Harrison (ankle).

Match facts
Leeds have lost just one of their last nine home league meetings with Ipswich (W5 D3), a 1-0 defeat in September 2015. Ipswich have kept one clean sheet in their last seven league visits to Elland Road. Since winning his first four matches as Leeds manager in all competitions, Marcelo Bielsa has won just three of his last 11 games (D5 L3). Ipswich have won just nine points in their 13 Championship games this season (W1 D6 L6) - after 13 games last season, the Tractor Boys had 21 points (W7 D0 L6). Leeds have won just one of their last 39 Championship games when conceding the first goal (D11 L27), a 2-1 win at Burton Albion in December 2017. Ipswich have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last 14 league matches in Yorkshire, since a 1-0 win at Huddersfield in February 2016.

It’s a simple pleasure of walking around somewhere far from Leeds and seeing a fellow fan. 
Was pissed on Thursday night with two mates near Liverpool Street in London singing marching on together and some fucker joins in from the other side of the road.
i always sing Leeds songs when I’m pissed.
what stories do you have of Leeds salutes or Leeds fans showing up in bizarre places?

Was chatting about this the other day with a mate.
There's the obvious choices (Sunderland, Bayern, Charlton, Bolton etc) but mine would have to be Doncaster at Wembley.
Showing my age a bit there, I suppose, but it had been such a battle just to get there and I was so convinced we would win. 

I mean, we were playing Donny Rovers FFS. Was absolutely gutted afterwards - easily the worst I have felt after a loss.
What is the lowest you have felt after watching a game?

Just listening to the Phil Hay podcast and it seems Barnes was at Thorp Arch in the summer, had picked a squad number and was nearly done, but then didn't happen. That would have been amazing.

Leeds left-back Barry Douglas will miss the visit of Brentford after injuring his hamstring at Hull on Tuesday.
Head coach Marcelo Bielsa has no other new injuries, but Kemar Roofe, Pablo Hernandez, Patrick Bamford and Gaetano Berardi are still unavailable.
Brentford welcome back forwards Said Benrahma and Ollie Watkins.
Benrahma missed Tuesday's draw against Birmingham through suspension while Watkins had a toe injury, but Rico Henry remains a long-term absentee.
Match facts
Leeds have won their last two home league games against Brentford in the previous two seasons, winning both 1-0. Brentford have not lost consecutive league matches against Leeds since December 1950. Leeds (22 points) have made their best start to a league season since 2009-10 in the third tier, when they won 27 points from the first 11 games, eventually sealing promotion. Brentford are winless in seven away league games (D4 L3), since a 1-0 win at Nottingham Forest in April. Seven of Leeds' last eight league goals have been scored in the second half of games. Only West Brom (19) have scored more after the interval than Leeds (13) in the Championship this season. Brentford have scored more goals in the opening 45 minutes of games this season than any other Championship side (10).

As per for those interested:
Changes afoot at Thorp Arch - masses of building work going on for the modifications Bielsa wants up here. His press conference starting shortly
Bielsa on Barry Douglas' fitness: "He won't be available for this coming game."
Bielsa: "It's a difficulty not to have all players available but we have the solution of Dallas and before Douglas arrived, he played an important role as a left-back. We also have Tom Pearce and without minimising the importance of Douglas we are always prepared." #lufc
Bielsa on Nigel Adkins' praise after Tuesday's win at Hull: "I thank him for what he said, especially when it comes from someone like him who knows the Championship. But it increases the obligation to justify the good words said about us.
Bielsa on injuries: "We have more absences than we thought. I always think that on average, four players would be missing for each game. Now we are above this average. But I have a lot of (respect) for the academy and they are covering the absences of experienced players.
Bielsa says Douglas' injury isn't serious. "I think he will be available to play after the international break but I couldn't assure you of that.
Bielsa talking about referees in England: "I like the way they work. The tempo of the games is linked to the fact that English football is noble. The fans don't celebrate people trying to cheat. The footballer reads this message. He doesn't simulate. It's easier for the referee."

... to the starting 11?
If we win against Brentford and everyone puts in a similar performance as Hull with noone getting injured, do you think Bielsa will start any of our 3 key returning players? 
I've a feeling that all 3 will start on the bench with the plan being to bring Roofe and Pablo on.

Hull City defender Jordy de Wijs will be unavailable after suffering an ankle injury in the draw against Middlesbrough on Saturday.
Winger Kamil Grosicki made his first start of the season in that game and could keep his place.
Leeds are likely to stick with the same XI that started Friday's 1-1 draw at Sheffield Wednesday.
  Forwards Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez are both out until after the international break. Match facts
Hull have won two of their last 12 league meetings with Leeds (D6 L4), with both victories coming in the 2012-13 season.  
Four of the last five league meetings between Hull and Leeds at the KC Stadium have ended as draws, with Hull winning the other 2-0 in December 2012.  
Hull have only kept one clean sheet in their last 14 league games, a 2-0 win against Ipswich in September  
After a winless run of 11 away league games at the end of last season, Leeds are unbeaten in all five on the road so far in 2018-19 (W2 D3)  
Jarrod Bowen has scored three of Hull's last four goals in the Championship.  
Just en route to Dublin Airport, excited as per usual. A game we are well capable of winning. Confident we will given the performance on Friday & that we will see improved finishing. Birmingham's win over us proves we shouldn't be complacent though.
Hull 0-2 Leeds
Harrison 36'
Roberts 64'

As per, for those interested:
Bielsa's press conference starting. On recent results: "Sometimes you do the right thing and you don't get the result. Sometimes you do the wrong thing and you get the result. If you don't do the right thing, you can't assume you will get the right result in the long term.
Bielsa says he doesn't expect Kemar Roofe to be fit for the Hull game or the Brentford game this week.
Bielsa on missed chances: "The leading teams in all competitions usually they need three chances to score to actually score. The leading teams are not always big teams. If you're very efficient, you can lead the table even if you're not a big team." #lufc
Bielsa on the threat posed by Hull: "We all know the game we're going to play will be more difficult than the table indicates. The game we lost, we lost it against a team (Birmingham) who were not from the upper part of the table.
Bielsa: "There's a routine of exercises we do for finishing, with 14 different ways to finish an action. We see all the kind of goals you can score in football. It's a very short exercise. In 10 or 15 minutes we do all the different situations. We repeat this exercise many times
"Mistakes allow you to improve your skills. By the second or third attempt a player is trained enough and will finish well. Apart from the skill you need, it's also linked to state of mind and luck, many factors
Bielsa is hopeful that Roofe, Hernandez and Berardi will be back for the game at Blackburn on October 20 (the other side of the international break). Says he misses having players like that available but says he doesn't relate any dropped points to not having them available
Bielsa on fielding unchanged line-ups: "When a team wins regularly, no-one is tired. We use rotations more for the performance than tiredness.

Bpf 7 - overall did well. Couldn't do anything about the goal. Still flaps a bit and looks likely to make more mistakes. Yes still young and will be in there for a while yet
Ayling 8 - did very well getting forward and defended when he had to. Couple of loose passes but overall very good
Cooper 8 - another excellent performance. Thought he did very well. Nice strike from 30 yards but arguably should have scored header at the end. Distribution was brilliant 
Jansson 7.5 - again played very well and kept us on the front foot. Think he was lucky to get away with the penalty all the same. Seen them given all the time 
Douglas 8.5 - would be a 9 except for the miss. Terrible miss. But probably his best game for us. Got forward at every opportunity. Great signing 
Phillips 7 - thought he did well without being outstanding. Kept things ticking over and bannan did nothing. Unlucky not to score in the melee after Douglas miss
Harrison 7 - grew into the game as it went on but I still have my doubts about him. He is a threat but final ball not great. Will improve
Klich 9 - motm by a mile. Absolute quality. Cannot get over how well he is playing. Think he is fantastic. Topped off with the goal. Probably should have scored in 1st half as well. Integral to the team
Saiz 8 - always buzzing about. Created 5 chances. Can't ask much more from him. Doesn't look a threat on the goal at the minute but if he creates 5 chances a game that will do
Alioski 6 - made up me mind last night. He has had enough chances. I don't care how many goals he has scored much more often than not he turns the ball over one way or another. To give him his credit he does work very hard. Would prefer Dallas to get a run there or possibly Clarke. 
Roberts 8 - thought he was excellent last night especially in 2nd half. Need a bit more conviction and ruthlessness in front of goal. Should have scored 1 and the shot just wide of the top corner was a good chance.
