  1. Coventry defended for 90 min and we actually managed to break them down. Never would have happened last year, we would have been the team trying to keep 11 behind the ball. It might not have been pretty but a win is a win. unbeaten in 7.
  2. Fry & Howson have been quality. We may still struggle to score but I don’t get the fear every time we defend anymore.
  3. When Johnson and Dijksteel get forward McNair can drop back in to make a 3.
  4. To be fair I’ve just read this from May this year sounds like it was Boros doing "It was actually quite strange," Bamford admitted in a Q&A video streamed on Leeds' Twitter page. "I thought I was staying at Middlesbrough. I originally knew that [Nottingham] Forest had put a bid in, as Aitor [Karanka] was there and he used to manage me at Middlesbrough. Middlesbrough put a stupid figure on it and I think it was double what Leeds actually ended up paying, so there was clearly something going on there. "That was when the first offer came in but it didn't really change anything for me as it was just two clubs talking. Then I heard about Leeds being interested; I remember my agent telling me that Leeds were interested and that obviously pricked my ears out. "But then I was playing in a friendly against Sunderland, at Boro, and it actually got cancelled halfway through. I was supposed to start and Tony Pulis [Middlesbrough manager at the time] came over to me and said 'let's have a chat. I am taking you out of the starting team and you know why, don't you?'I said: 'no.' He then told me that Leeds had put a bid in and it had been accepted. "I was like: 'really'. He was really good about it, to be fair. A lot of people have bad stories about Tony Pulis but I cannot speak highly enough about him, as he was honest, told me they had accepted a bid and thanked me for my time and everything. "That was pretty much it. Once he had said it was the club's decision, that was it. "After that, my head was only focused on Leeds. Obviously there was final details and stuff that needed to be sorted, but that was pretty much the whole story."
  5. Didn’t bamford say in a tv interview that his agent told him Leeds were interested and he told his agent to get it done?
  6. That game highlighted how much we need better options than Spence & Johnson. When we were on top they were the weak links going forward, same defensively. For the life of me I can’t understand why johnson shows players the inside rather than the line...I thought this was something everyone was taught 1st day as a kid. Other than those 2 I think we are a lot better and work more as a team. Need that first win.
  7. Point is the least we deserved. Defensively a lot better. Need to create some chances now because Britt looks sharp. His first touch and hold up play is so much better.
  8. So unlucky with the goal. We pressed so well for the entire half. Still not creating enough (any) clear chances but definitely defending better as a team. hope we can keep pressing and increase the tempo sometimes in the middle.
  9. Dijksteel was brilliant. Britt closed players quickly and held the ball up better than I’ve seen him do before. Johnson didn’t do much (if anything) wrong defensively but didn’t get forward much in the first half. When defending 1v1 out wide our players mostly came out on top, but there was too many gaps through the middle. Spence was too slow to get back and defend, always the wrong side and looked reluctant going forward. Yet somehow he always seemed to be shouting at other players. Bettinelli didn’t have much to do apart from their goal. We got balls and players in the box but didn’t really create many chances, but I do think Watford’s defence looked very good. Was a close game, not as bad I was expecting tbh. Definitely things to build on and I think one big issue has potentially been addressed with Morsy signing. Just worry at our lack of options/cover.
  10. I want to see us show some composure at the back, positive signs going forward and hopefully not get smashed. More positives than negatives and something to build on 🤞🏼
  11. Must be seriously unfit or another problem showed on medical. We take an age to complete transfers so in the time it takes for us to sign someone else Sanogo will probably be match fit 😂
  12. Scott Wilson said no other signings apart from Bettinelli expected before Watford game
  13. Think we really need to act quick to get Morsy done. Derby are now linked with Byrne and surely there are only so many players that Wigan/admin need and want to sell.
