Both teams would have won if they had a goalkeeper. Would have been 0-0 if they both had one.

I saw the highlights and yes some poor goal keeping in this game. GK's can do some strange things at times.

GKs are very strange people, I think it comes from being kicked in the head when young, just ask Mr Selby :wink:

My thoughts exactly. If the train didn't go there he wouldn't have a bottle of shiraz clue where Liverpool was :wink:

Great atmosphere 33K all singing :wink: The pre game TOGETHER sign by the crowd looked really good - physical game and the ref made a few mistakes for and against Leeds.

No happy return to Elland Road for Monk.

Away to Wolves next game - will be tough game.



Yes it will! May as well give us the championship winners trophy now :)

This current Wolves team is quickly being regarded as the best team to ever compete in the championship..... no exaggeration to say they'd comfortably be top half premier league team and with more big signings to come in Jan and end of the season the futures looking (old) golden.

I can't understand why anyone would want to be called Wanderers, it's a bit like the Woolwich Wanderers, little more than pikeys :D

I have the same sort of disdain for Hotspur.... bunch of jews, Bosnich had the right idea when it came to acknowledging The White Hart lane faithful.

Old Cyril was a good player , not a patch on his brother Peter though. :)

Very good opening goal from Wolves though.

Sadly I watched the game and we have gone downhill this season. Supporter backing of Carvalhal is at an all time low. IMO time for the board to let him go.

Leeds United Transfers
January 2018

Completed Ins
Laurens De Bock Club Brugge Undisclosed
Adam Forshaw Middlesbrough £4.5m
Aapo Halme HJK Helsinki Undisclosed
Yosuke Ideguchi Gamba Osaka Undisclosed

Completed Outs
No current outs

And they are in a training camp in Spain ATM.

I would expect a few outs in Jan as the squad appears to be on the large side and maybe that's causing unrest and maybe a reason for the recent poor results.

Just watched the highlights from this Leeds V Millwall game - so many chances for both teams, the score could have been anything. Millwall appeared to have more of the chances but had to score 2 late goals to come from 3-2 down to win against a 10 man Leeds that came from 0-2 down to get to 3-2 up position with 10 men.

Very enjoyable and that was just from the highlights and my team lost.

Well done to both teams. :wink:

Your opinion on the red card?

For me, that's a red card all day long in the modern game.

Yep red for me also. I have been impressed with what I have seen from Millwall this year.

We play a tough brand of football, which I like. This is opitomised by the Leeds' favourite - Morison. I love it when teams use that phrase that we bully them. Premier league teams said it last year, leeds have done it this year :-)

We can't keep up monetary wise with almost all of the other teams, so we mix it with team spirit and mental toughness.
