  1. We've played just the once at Elland Road since Leeds got relegated back in 2004, and that was a League Cup tie in 2009/10 when David Ngog got the only goal of the game. It's a ground where we've had some mixed results. The standout game is almost certainly the 4-3 in 2000/01 when we let Viduka run riot. Then there's the 1-0 defeat in 1995 when Yeboah scored one of the goals of the 90s. However, we've managed some big wins, not least when we went there in February 2002. They had the likes of Fowler to choose from too, but I think it was around that time when they were unravelling financially. The chairman had mortgaged the house (and his £10k fish tank) on being Champions League regulars like the Mancs and Arsenal. They'd spent a fortune they didn't really have trying to live the dream. We'd been on a recent run where we struggled to get goals and wins (not unlike our recent form), but that got set straight in this game. Rio Ferdinand put into his own net for the opener, Heskey scored twice in the second half having been unable to buy a goal for months, and Owen added the gloss. 4-0 then, and we'd comfortably qualify for the Champions League with our highest finish in the PL era. The following week we travelled to relegation-threated Ipswich and battered them 6-0 with debutant Abel Zavier getting the opener! The big hit at the time was 'Hero' by Enrique Iglesias. He spent 4 weeks at the top of the chart with this dirge aimed at the sort of people who watched Dawson's Creek as kids before moving onto the Twilight saga and sappy shit like The Notebook. Leeds gave us more than a few problems on the opening day of the season at Anfield, and they've been one of the league's more entertaining teams this season. You can't always be sure what you're going to get with them. Sometimes they don't do anything right, and other times they're a complete handful. Bielsa spends his time either squatting on his coolbox or prowling the touchline like an angry Mafia don deciding which poor underling should feel his wrath. All we have to do is retain shape and solidity defensively while taking any chances that we create or that present themselves. Easier said than done, but if we do all the right things, we can be heroes.
  2. The tempo for the first hour or so was very good. Yes Real had a few spells of possession, but they didn't do much with them whereas we looked dangerous up to a point. That point being end product. Too often our players don't make a clean contact when a chance presents itself. The either scuff tamely, hit a shot right at the keeper, or skew it way off target. Mo and Gini really ought to have scored at least one of their chances in that first half. It was when we made our first substitutions that our tempo disappeared. Partially that was down to the subs getting acclimatised with the game itself, but mostly it was because the formation we switched to did nothing for us. Sadio was taking a breather down the right, and Diogo didn't want to we so wide on the left. It meant we stopped stretching the play and more and more tried eye-of-a-needle stuff in the middle that mostly didn't come off. When something did actally open up, the ball got stuck under our player's feet (Mo) or blocked by a defender (Bobby). What got me more and more annoyed as the game went on was that EVERY loose ball bounced the way of the Spaniards. If they blocked anything, the ball fell kindly to them. They didn't play with any ambition, happy to sit back and hit on the counter, but they were helped massively that nothing was falling for our players even if there was an element of last-ditch about some of their defending. It just wasn't to be our night. Our only hope of getting back into the competition next season is to go on a run in our remaining league games while hoping that a few of those currently above us start to falter. We HAVE to be more ruthless and efficient in the final third though. EDIT: The dickhead element who attacked the Real Madrid team bus can fuck right off.

    Because they generally have Goretzka and Muller in the more advanced positions. Goretzka is excellent at getting into the box, and Muller is one of the best in the world at it. Regarding Sane, when he was flying at City he played on the left and regularly featured in that trademark getting-to-the-byline move of theirs. Bayern don't appear to want to use him that way.

    That poor bastard always had to use a ladder just to reach the bottom shelf, so the need to lash out has been brewing inside for a while too. A recipe for disaster.

    Felix Brych falls for that sort of shit every time.

    You don't have to not moan about injuries to not moan about injuries. But they don't not moan about injuries.

    VAR Thoughts?

    If that ever came into being, they'd just make sure our one appeal fails, leaving us with no more appeals and them with carte blanche to do whatever the fuck they want to us. Much like what we are seeing at the moment.

    But then he's mates with Buffy and she could almost certainly kick your arse, so there's that.

    Line of Duty

    The scrote cop Ryan and that other cop who was helping Kate look like they're related too. While it was nowhere near to living up to the hype suggested, and formulaic when you consider episodes the show has delivered in the past, the episode had a good mix of action and dialogue. It furthered the plot and muddied the waters just enough to keep the interest going. Hastings likes to do things by the book, but the trouble with that is that it brings far too many people into the loop. He needs to go rogue. It would be great if he goes all Bryan Mills on all these OCG members and bent coppers.

    After a few close shaves, that's got to sting a bit.

    It'd be like Arnie's Terminator scanning his internal databases to find the appropriate words, before settling on "mate", "ma'am" or "boss".
