Apparently J-Lo always had Callum Irvine in his sights from when he used to watch him at Harrogate with Bobba.

Is that not a frightening thought for a championship club. Presume ably a certain prop has eaten too many pies again . You can expect this at junior club level not at our susposed level

Someone must be covering. Mayhew to drop in at loose head if required?
Let's hope we set off at a gallop!

I noticed that Cusack was stood on the scrum machine in one of the videos on the offy. Not sure those pushing were too enamoured.



COME ON LEEDS.
We've been through it all together.

Well we started the season as I thought we would go on. Loosing to a semi proffessional side by a margin. We were poor, watched it. We are so week in many areas.

Just seen the report on the offy. Seems we messed up the kick off, conceded lots of penalties, dropped the ball close to the line, and made a mess of attacking line outs. Nothing new there then. Have we practised nothing during the close season?

Against who have they had the chance to practice any moves... Nobody unless you count a bunch of students. Hardly the ideal way to hit the park running.

Leeds have been messing up kick-offs/restarts for most of this century!

As above, that's why you have pre season! Blowing the cobwebs out in the first league game isn't a good idea.
Lots to work on i guess. Roll on the next game and hopefully get some bods back.

As the stickys aint working. I will respond to Gelbel's match report here.

As on of the "boo-hissers" referred to, I find it incredible that 25 minutes of good play produces optimism. Unless the new laws introduced in the close season include a substantially reduced period of play, as far as I am aware the game is still played over 80minutes.

25 minutes!

Wow! What about the other 55 minutes. Presumably during this time we are not doing so well. Dropping balls, missing passes, missing tackles, failing in set plays, conceding turnovers etc. In this time presumably the opposition are running rings round us, scoring trys at will...

25 minutes!!!!

When someone can honestly say that the lads put in a shift of 80 minutes, gave 100%+, shed sweat and blood in the cause, then, and only then will I have an overwhelming sense of optimism.

I did not attend the game. I rely on what someone like Gelbel tells me in a report. It's always appreciated but From the comments passed I make an opinion.

What I posted is mine, like it or not.

Oh and by the way, I do not speak with forked tongues and booing is sssssssssssssssso rude!
