Leeds banter 242513


Use our rumours form to send us leeds transfer rumours.

Is there only me still feeling a little bit of optimism for tomorrow. All it needs is Ipswich to fluff it tomorrow and that's more than possible. And then us to win (a bit less likely, but come on) ! It's easily still on.

Otherwise I don't really like getting involved in the bickering but I couldn't resist responding to all the Farke criticism. He might have made a couple of team selections over the course of a season that some of us might not have agreed with, but so has every manager across all the leagues. But on the whole he's been great.
Just think back to what he inherited and what a lot of us were predicting at the start of the season; "mid-table at best", "we'll be lucky not to get relegated again". He's done a remarkable job and we should appreciate him a bit more (in my humble opinion, but I'm usually wrong any way)

Totally agree, a victim of his own success comes to mind.

At the end of Summer window he lost Sini but surprisingly Gnonto remained. plus CS, GR, PB, DJ

Along with the key signing of JR as well as EA . he had a strong team.

90 points is nothing more than par for the course for a newly relegated EPL team with parachute payments

Last season Burnley 103 or something even Sheff U 91

Bottom line though for Farke and Martin is that both have been out performed by McKenna . Ipswich finishing above Leeds and Southampton is not acceptable.

Good posts Firps and OP. Bored to death of reading the rest, on repeat, again.

Totally agree TRJFirpo, after the summer window closed and we knew what squad we had, I believe many on here were thinking mid-table at best.
He has done fantastically well, and yes, McKenna has done better, but that doesn’t take away from the Leeds effort. When Leicester won the league, nobody started criticising the managers of Man U, Arsenal, Citeh etc, we all knew it was a fluke and they rode their luck and momentum. It happens!
Let’s just crack on, see what tomorrow brings and if that’s the playoffs, so be it, and if that brings Championship football next season, so be it. I’ll still enjoy it and have a better chance of getting tickets!

Victim of his own success ????.

03 May 2024 19:12:27
Sorry Bazooka but I don’t know anything about Burnley’s promotion squad last season or owt, but to compare them and us you’d need to compare the players they lost, the summer they had, the pre-season prep. And ours at the start of this season was woeful in all of those respects.
Better to compare what he’s done to what we realistically expected and he’s done a very good job overcoming all those hurdles.
Plus keeping hold of certain players who wanted to leave who have been key this season, which was great work. I for one was saying “get rid of them if they don’t wanna be here”. And I’m happy to have been proved wrong btw- look at the positives and just get behind him for one more game (maybe 4 more games)

03 May 2024 19:57:31
Farke's done ok so far . if we go up then much better ofc.

03 May 2024 19:46:26
You can shove those little laughing emoji’s right where the sun don’t shine Whiteman, you of all posters on here is bereft of any understanding of what professional football is about.
Have a nice weekend fella and let’s hope Leeds lose tomorrow so you can have more of a moan.

03 May 2024 20:19:35
Well said OP.

03 May 2024 20:21:32
Relaxxx sweetie
Have a beer ( it's on Whitey) ?.

03 May 2024 20:58:50
If we'd have been hovering around 6-10 all season and got into the playoffs I think we'd all be pretty buzzing getting there.

Just a bitter pill to swallow when you've been top, had a great unbeaten run and then lose out at the last moments.

I get the frustration, but overall Farke has done well this season, but he still has his flaws which concern me.

Be class if a miracle happens tomoz. But failing that, I'll take a win and get the momentum going again if we are to be going into the playoffs, which is most likely.

Hoping for the best.

What Whitey said. Victim of his diminishing forward planning. He complained (rightly) about fixture pile up and tiredness yet doesn't use the bench enough for rotation. Admittedly his bench not as good as first team but it's something, reasonably competitive and allows recovery of the rested in a fortnight. Playing same team disregarding the issue you identified smacks of frightened rabbit ? in the headlights, not victim of success.

Baz Die Jungs haben richtig hart gespielt.

04 May 2024 07:22:06
Der zwei dummkopf.

Before this season got underway and even during the start until the transfer window closed, the club was in complete turmoil with many players effectively wanting to leave due to the loan clauses in their contracts.
We had by the end of September Drawn 5, Lost 2 and Won 3 games, meanwhile Leicester and Ipswich were both ripping up the league and we were already about 10 points behind the leaders.

There were several of you blokes on here who were already predicting a mid table finish for this season, strangely enough 12th was it not Baz?

Yet, through his excellent and successful experience in the Championship, Farke managed to steady the ship and start us on an amazing winning streak, which the doubters love to ignore, breaking all time Leeds United records, even the Revie era.

By the end of March after being behind Leicester by no less than a massive 17 points by the end of December, remarkably we found ourselves at the top of the league by the end of March.

Now, if you numbskulls want to believe Farke doesn’t know what he’s doing with his selections or whatever brainless thing you concoct about his so called failures, then wake up and smell the coffee.

That’s why now some of you constant moaners, like Whiteman now want more, what is it exactly you want, mid table or promotion?
Of course because Farke has done so well considering our difficult start to the season you want more.

Is that not being a victim of his own success when unfortunately after such an amazing comeback, we just fell short of the autos and some are now berating Farke when at the start of the season they didn’t give him or the team anywhere near a chance of promotion.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Auf Farke vertrauen wir als Dritter

OP der Meister des Spins.

04 May 2024 08:55:04
Ah. It’s sweet. George and Baz, sitting in the trees, Baz says what he wants, and George just agrees….

04 May 2024 08:57:01
A tad passive aggressive Baz.

04 May 2024 09:18:40
This is an English football forum Baz, if you want to really test your google translated German on me, be my guest, I have to warn you though I am fluent in German and French.
I am no master of spin, just FACTS as you put it, unlike your cocktail ever changing predictions that follow the cause of our season, not to mention the constant dismantling and the degrading of your very own football team and coach.?!

Yet you predict us to win today, does that make you a closet optimist? or a WUM?

04 May 2024 09:48:13
Nope OP as I said in my post below facts are this season I have predicted Leeds United to WIN 90% of matches.
