I have followed and enjoyed this site for many years without saying much, but things have started to irk me.

It does not matter to me whether a poster is an eternal optimist or a prophet of doom, but increasingly the comments seem to be playing the man and not the ball and, as a result, regular posters are leaving us.

Please keep your comments to a point of view and not another poster. It does not make acceptable to make a comment that is clearly a dig at the individual, but then say they are entitled to their opinion.

For crying out loud, we all support Leeds, so please, let's march on together and keep the banter friendly.

Feel free to shoot this messenger, just keep it nice amongst the regulars.

Great post Jungle, I agree entirely, the fact that you feel you have to add the ‘don’t shoot the messenger’ caveat shows your excellent “taking the man” analogy is spot on.

Been on this site for a few years now and am really gutted to lose such brilliant people such as Mad Mick, Spanish, Speedy and now Martyn really has taken a lot of fun and great Leeds supporters away.

Genuinely hope Martyn takes a breather recollects his thoughts and comes back the Big Man is a big loss.

We are all capable of typing ALAW aren’t we but our actions, words and most importantly intent must reflect it.

Thanks again Jungle.

I'm still here class, but that jungle bloke, what's all that about, don't shoot the messenger lol😉😉😉.

I will miss Martyns ridiculous jokes.

yeah Jungle who do you think you are coming in here and getting all proper lemon. ya mom!

well said mate MOT.

I agree with Jungle - we all suffer the roller coaster that is Leeds, we are all entitled to an opinion, but having a go at someone because their opinion isn't your own is stupid, ALAW MOT onwards and upwards.

jungle, you are entitled to your opinion.

Guess one of the ways to change the conversation is to contribute to it which you have now done, so fair play. maybe some other lurkers can also pitch in from time to time us regular posters would welcome the input and have said time and again we value everyone's opinion even if we don't agree with it. differing points of view are best imo because they generate debate.

I do think, however, that people need to lighten up a bit and not take comments and views so seriously. its only comments on a website and tbh even the 'digs' that you refer to tend to be very light compared to what i've seen on other sites (particularly fb) where people are told quite openly to f. off and are completely lambasted by other posters among other things.

Glad to hear it Dougie made my day 😂.

Spot on jungle, and a great analogy!

Why is it that when ever we but a player they don’t go straight in to the team, other clubs buy and then they play the very next game, MB put him straight in no more messing around.

Bam score two, and had a blinding second half. He’s not going to be dropped just yet!

30 Jan 2020 23:31:37
I think everyone knows I’m not Bamfords biggest fan, but you can’t drop someone who just scored twice. Maybe sub him late on if he doesn’t repeat his performance.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I don't say much because I know sod all about football and never played the game until I turned 50.

I was just lucky enough to start supporting Leeds as a youngster, when the only coverage we got down under was Match of the Day and Shoot magazine (about a month after it issued in the UK) :)
