Somebody after all, had to make a start
especially, if like me, you suffer from insomnia
Leeds favorites for the title ahead of Fulham. I'm going to the Cottage tomorrow to see us play Blackburn so will get a better idea if their prediction is accurate or not. We have a very very good side on paper but Parker is an unknown entity. let's see.well - here we go again.
Great start by leeds - real swagger.
And great to have some continuity - keeping Bielsa is a major major plus. Core of the team is unchanged other than janson being replaced by white (some talk that he was a bit of a shit stirrer in the dressing room - so may be a net positive) - and roofe leaving for anderlecht (fair enough - as he'd be 2nd string striker after bamford)
Signing Helda Costa and getting the highly rated Nketiah on a years loan from Arsenal both count as major coups. The bielsa effect - players want to come to elland road - his record of tkaing players and significantly improving them is really impressive. And - in kalvin phillips' case - they want to stay, despite the best efforts of villa and others in the prem.
So here's to another season of swashbuckling attacking football - hopefully rewarded with promotion this time ... (probably shit or bust now - if we dont go up i can see bielsa and half the team departing) .
pfft. You want to try being a Reading fan at the moment. The twitter hashtag for this gane was REAvFUL, which is really easy to misread as ReallyAwful. Which it was.at stoke city
I can feel a 'vote of confidence from the chairman' coming on
