In truth you didn't miss much ........ the first half would have had you nibbling your nails half way up your arm ..... Leeds were awful. Second to every ball/challenge etc etc . Even tried to rough it up a bit to slow Cambridge down, but after 3 yellows in the space of a few mins that idea was dropped. Luckily for them they got to half time only one down (it should have been 2 or 3), and then as is normal with these type of games Cambridge seemed to run out of legs, and the fitness and class levels started to show through. Pan's mate DOUKARA ( :oops: :-" :-$ ) was taken of after about 5o odd mins and ROOffffffff replaced him. Suddenly Leeds seemed to be able to get past midfield and put pressure on the Cambridge def (it had been 40 mins before their first proper shot on target). 2 goals in a few mins turned the game, and but for a flurry of Cambridge attacks in injury time they bossed the rest of the game.

Who da ya fancy the Dons or Sutton? :lol:


Was joking about Doukara Statts. He is on my list of worst ever Leeds players with Carlton Palmer and Jeff Chandler (there's one for the enthusiasts!). He is still better than Messi though who can only aspire to pull on the white shirt of LUFC.

By the way, dont know about us roughing up Cambridge. The ref was a typical product of the Premier League who wouldnt recognise a good old fashioned challenge if it hit him in the kae hams. The booking for Jansson which costs us his presence for games against our 2 nearest challengers for a play off place was laughable.

I will make a prediction now in that, without Jansson, we will lose against both Derby and Barnsley

Having probably now seen more than half the LUFC matches live this season (PPTV/MCOT/BBC) I think that Jansson is probably one of the best players in the Championship .......... he does need to curb his enthusiasm for a tackle just a little at times, but certainly not too much as that is probably what makes him stand out. If Leeds fail in their promotion bid this year I would certainly expect him to move up without them ..... quite like Roooooofffffffffffe as well :lol:

Manchester United 2 Hull City 0
Well,United won but it was a disjointed performance as they struggled to break down a spirited Hull side.
Mata was man of the match but too many United players were average,at best.......Valencia and Jones did OK.
Pogba had one of those games when he plays like a loan player from Nancy,although he did hit the post with an excellent free kick.
As for Rooney.....more evidence that he's finished at this level,I'm afraid.....substituted after 60 minutes,he might as well have been taken off after 6 minutes !
Let him finish his playing career in China where some mugs will pay him 700,000 GBP per week and a chance for him to make out with some older Chinese ladies,pictured below.

Southampton v Liverpool tonight in the first leg of the other semi final.Its on MCOT Thai channel 30 at 3am Thursday morning.

Well done Macclesfield.....not too far off the play offs now.A great win in the Checkatrade Trophy for Cheltenham against the Leicester U11's but Scunthorpe can now concentrate on promotion to the Championship.
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.

I'm assuming that is purely a slip zid and not an attempt to miss the first 15 mins on purpose ..... MCOT Channel 30 @ 02:45

Football League Cup - Semi-Final

Southampton 1-0 Liverpool


Slight advantage to the Saints going into the second leg on the 25th. If it will be enough very much depends what sort of side Klopp manages to put out for that. If it is the same one as last night's then the Saints are through. They were very unlucky not to be out of sight after a first leg where only Pool goalkeeper, Loris Karius, kept them in contention.

sounds like karius earned his money,for a change
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp:

"We needed Loris Karius to save our lives two or three times.

"The best thing for us is the result. We know that we can play better at Anfield - nothing is decided.

"We cannot be happy with the performance, Southampton cannot be happy with the result. It could and should have been 2-0, 3-0."

Purely a slip,statts,but I think Liverpool were wishing the kick off time would have been 3.07 am ! :-"
Liverpool were very poor and could have lost 3-0.They certainly weren't up for this cup semi final !

Maybe they had one eye on Sundays big game against Manchester United in the EPL at 11pm Thai ? This is preceded by Everton v Manchester City at 8.30pm Thai.

Anyway,still everything to play for in the second leg of the League Cup semi final.........

Friday 13th January 2017
Sky Bet Championship

Leeds United 1-0 Derby County


The winner came just before half time, but Leeds had plenty of chances to win it before then & chances to improve the score after. That was just about the only criticism in the display though.
Takes them up to 3rd. Derby remain just outside the play off places..
