Norwich Away – A Season Defining Game

This is the big one. No Carroll, but otherwise a strong squad presumably brimming with confidence after the hammering of Fulham. The season could now go one of three ways, and this match is likely to set the tone for everything that is to…

West Ham To Sign Defensive Genius?

Well we have had a Ruud Boffin between the sticks so why not Mensah at centre back? He may not be the best defender in the world, but if he lives up to his name, he will have an IQ higher than the combined total of the entire Bobby …

The Truth At Last

The truth will out, they say; and so it has proved, albeit it too late to take to task those truly responsible. People power forced the hand of the government but there is a delicious irony, the human tragedy apart, in a…

Warnock Speaking In Tonges At Leeds

How many players does Warnock need exactly? Doesn’t he know that you can only field 11 players at any given time? What about all the bright young things the club claim to have coming through the ranks? With Bates no longer having to hide the …

Allardyce Singles Noble Out For Praise

Interesting. Whilst highlighting the versatility of his present squad – and going forward there is certainly an exciting range of options – Allardyce identified Noble and Vaz Te in particular as players who can perform different roles for the team. When he arrived, Allardyce surprised…

Zola Out Of Control At Watford

It didn’t take long did it? After a promising start, September promises to be the cruelest month after a 5-1 tonking at Derby County. When the wheels came off at Upton Park under Zola, they came off big time, but it took a season to arrive at catastrophe; …

Where are you Robert Green?

Just seen the England squad and there’s no place for England’s 666. Shame! It seems that joining QPR is a good way of bringing the curtain down on an England career. Green made the squad in the Championship with West Ham; but even though he’s in …

Leeds United’s Official Site Confirms What Every Leeds Fan Fears

Yep. Yesterday was the the day apparently. Well today was the day actually but like all the todays before it, that today is now yesterday and yesterday all Leeds United’s fans’ troubles seemed so far away, but now they’re here and baby here to stay…

Credit where credit is due! And lots due at Upton Park!

I’ve expressed my doubts. I’ve been a critic. I’ve issued dire (or Dyer) warnings. I’ve done my best to be a thorn in the side of the new regime. But boy does it look like I was wrong! The move for Carroll? Publicity stunt …

West Ham 3 Fulham 0 – WTF?

I am in Heaven! Two hours ahead in Bucharest and, if honest, I had forgotten all about the game! New apartment but no internet access yet and no TV connection either, thus the silence on TGGC.  Logged on in a mate’s apartment and saw …

Allardyce Seeking Early Exit From Cup

So, faced with an uphill struggle to avoid relegation – confirmed by our truly inept performance at Swansea – Allardyce has decided to concentrate on the league before we’ve even kicked a ball in the Capital One Cup. Great! He’s not quite …

Leeds climb to seventh as Blackpool go goal crazy

A par for the course 2-1 win at Peterborough saw Leeds climb to the heady heights of seventh in the Championship, just one place off a play off position. Fingers crossed for Leeds fans that Becchio’s brace does not stimulate an offer as Master Bates is likely to…

Beautiful Swans, Ugly Ducks! Allardyce’s Swansea Swan Song!!

The team selection said it all: Allardyce was petrified of Swansea. Why? Because whilst he arsed about recruiting big physical specimens, Swansea went out and recruited quality. Michu was the top scoring midfield player in Spain last year and cost just £2m …

Good Luck To Baldock At Bristol City

I reckon Bristol City have got themselves a bargain. £1.1m for Little Sam sounds like a snip to me. Use him in the right way, on the shoulder of a bigger striker, and he will score stacks of goals. Sadly Allardyce wanted to…

Warnock Voices Frustration And Wants Bates Out Of Leeds!

Despite bringing in ten players, Warnock claims his squad doesn’t stand a “cat in hell’s chance” of seeing out a 46 game Championship season. He wants three or four players but Leeds United, despite their great past, are still on their uppers. And the reason? Master Bates who …

Matty To Clean Up In Claret & Blue!

I have expressed my doubts about the wisdom of the signing but to hell with it, he has joined now and at £10m+ we can’t afford for him to fail. People weren’t sure about another Matty, Etherington, when we signed him and …

Does The Sun Shine Out Of Harry’s Backside?

Third in line for the throne and he is daft enough to be photographed naked? I have no problem with what he was doing personally, but if a “member” of the Royal Family is paraded like this, why the Hell shouldn’t The Sun publish the pictures?…

Championship Looking A Lottery Already

Just two games played and only one team, Blackpool, have a 100% record, with just 6 other teams, Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton, Blackburn, Ipswich, Nottingham Forest and Cardiff still unbeaten. Leeds, Wolves, Bolton and Leicester have slipped up already and Birmingham, Derby and Brighton have all started poorly. The usual guff will…

QPR Reject Paddy Kenny Fitting In Perfectly At Leeds

Joy. Not only does England’s Number 666 Rob Green have a howler, but Paddy Kenny can’t resist the temptation to gloat and, in typical Leeds fashion, retaliates with a stream of abusive text messages sent to Fernandes and Technical Director Mike …

Fingers Crossed For Jarvis Medical

With any luck there may be a deep seated injury that will not represent a problem to the player but which prevents us completing the deal. £10m + for a very average player is absolute madness in my book! Congratulations…

After Watford Defeat, Zola’s Not For Turning!

Well there’s a surprise, despite Watford’s stuttering (or floundering) performance, GianFredo’s not for turning. Why should he change? Zola knows best and defeats count for nothing – literally! What matters are principles, or rather, what matters is to accommodate GodfatherNani and his Pozzo paymasters. Speaking after the game, Zola said: “I…

Warnock Parks the Leeds Bus at Blackpool, then Turns on Varney!

Oh dear, it didn’t take long did it? Second game up and Warnock is beginning to see why Portsmouth were relegated last season –  or finished fifth from bottom without the points deduction! Blackpool, by all accounts, including Warnock’s, played Leeds …

£1m for Baldock, £10m for Jarvis? Mad or what?

So Baldock has been jettisoned at a £1m loss, great business for Bristol City who stung us for £1.5m for Maynard, the guy Baldock has been signed to replace; and meanwhile, if reports are true, we have bid an absurd £10m for Matt Jarvis, a player …
