I find it amazing that we are supposedly having a transitional season yet Beilsa transformed Leeds within one season. That says it all for me with regards to Woodgates coaching ability. Yes Beilsa is more experienced etc.. But I think it's easy to just use the Woodgate is a rookie excuse.

I'm guessing that must have been on the day if him and his shirt were at the ground like someone on here said. Like, it must have been after the kit-man hung it up. I'm guessing he wasn't in the team and maybe he kicked off a bit, especially after the ovation he got against Luton (I'm making *** up here but y'know).

Doesn't explain why Coulson didn't play though.

And people on this forum were laughing at the Bielsa appointment as well.

Well Woodgate's man management skills aren't as good as he would like us to think. Spence may not see the team again until this manager is sacked.

Bielsa is a world-renowned coach with decades of experience. He's cited by the likes of Guardiola, Pochettino, and Simeone as an inspirational and guiding figure in their careers.

Woodgate is locally renowned as a bit of a tit and has spent a season and a half sat behind Poolis. He's been cited by Steve Gibson as being 'really, really cheap'.

I can't believe you're comparing the two situations and are so blasé about the difference in experience, to be honest. The difference is huge.

It's worth adding that when I checked, someone had already changed Woodgate's Wiki to say he'd been sacked. 😅

Hmm, I wonder if this ties in with what SDS said on one of the other threads about some of the younger lads having a pop at some of the more experienced ones on Saturday?  Let's say hypothetically that Spence was dropped to the bench initially but then voiced his displeasure at it so was then dropped completely.  Coulson was also dropped to the bench but kept his own counsel so stayed on the bench. After the game a few of them decided to say their piece just as Spence had done perhaps?

With any luck it was Gibson who changed it 👍

Maybe Spence just turned up late, and was dropped like everyone else would have been.  His bike probably had a flat tyre.

Wilson, I would guess they are expecting a lot of Leeds fans tonight.  I don't know if they've already sold out their allocation or not but if they have then that will be Boro attempting to keep them out of the home end.  Probably a good idea.

Woodgate is demanding a much-improved performance against United. 

See the difference, a Boss is (demanding) were as a Leader is (planning).. 

“Without question, the last two games have been very disappointing,” he admitted. “They were games we thought we could win but didn’t, but that just shows the nature of this league. 

No, it just proves what he thought was fit for purpose was not. Basically he thought he could beat other teams, thereby overrating his ability while underestimating the opponent. 

“It’s a really difficult league, and anyone can take points off anyone. It’s been shown this season; QPR beat Leeds, Barnsley beat Fulham, Hull beat Fulham.

Here is were he believes anyone can take points off anyone but statistics prove we have not and can't.  

“Misery makes phone-ins, misery makes forums.

I can't comment on this one.. 

We can slag Woody off no end, but I think he believes everything he states and for that I give him credit. Look he is either stupid or a genius we have yet to see, so for some rather strange reason Im going for a 1 goal win.. UTB.

    • Great news OMG it will be good to keep the PL going it's a great feature and good fun. MM you underplay you're efforts, fantastic job for the last few seasons, I'm sure on behalf of the forum a big thank you for all your hard work and frequent updates. I hope you continue to take part.  
    • Are we ready for a relegation battle? No. Are we more ready for a relegation battle than the teams around us (which is perhaps the more important question)? Time will tell. I have my concerns, though. Charlton in particular came out of pre-season much more strongly than we did, and we are kind of restarting the season again after another preseason.  I'm not confident that Woodgate has the managerial experience to get us to be where we need to be in terms of preparation and match sharpness by the end of this mid-season preseason.
    • My worry is our goalscoring, if teams get in front we'll then struggle & with the new rules of 5 subs per game teams will just kill games We are as bad as the other 5, 6 teams at the wrong end with not much breathing space between us all, whoever starts late in the mini bottom league will go down  Defensively we're fine, IMHO, 
    • Didn’t realise Taylor was 30. Thought he was a young up-and-coming
    • Agree. I think a lower end PL team will take a punt on him as a 2nd or 3rd choice striker. They got little to lose. Free transfer and if they offer him even 15k it will probs triple his current wages.
