  1. The England thread

    I have no idea who Joe Gomez, Alfie Mawson and James Tarkowski are. Joe Hart isn't even playing at West Ham is he?
  2. Premier League 2017/18

    I actually get this. Premier League football is so sterile. I obviously want Leeds to get back into the premier league but what is there to aim for? Finishing 17th or above and then maybe a few years down the line aim to finish 6th/7th? Premier League mediocrity will never give me the same thrills as beating Carlisle 4-2 on our league one promotion push.
  3. Premier League 2017/18

    Seems not. I'd wager that Derby probably did in 2007-8 (i think it was that year) and i wouldn't be surprised if we did in 1996-7 when we only scored 20-odd all season.
  4. Sky Bet EFL 2017/18

    We're playing a 21 year old goalkeeper with 5 career appearances, Oldham refused to take him on loan and he was sent back by York because they didn't think he was good enough... Still got to be better than that useless German twat. Well, should be another cracking performance tonight.

    I don't even dislike Arsenal that much (only in a "they're a big team, i hope they fail" way) but please let this happen.
  6. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    Well, I've heard it commented if a team is sent out early if that counts? Saying that it's been a while since I've seen that happen, used to happen regularly of a team played shit first half
  7. Whichever team is playing Man United. Unless it's Galatasaray, then Man United.

    Told you. Typical.
  9. Premier League 2017/18

    These spawny cunts will win this.

    Kolasinac has every right to go for that ball, nothing malicious, shit happens, move on.
  11. General Football Thread

    Fancy not wanting to call the people who pay you millions of pounds a year to do one of the cushiest jobs going a set of cunts.

    He was probably fractionally offside. I do think in those situations the linesmen are just guessing though.

    How are Spurs not winning?

  15. For me, there's one obvious heartbreaking time being a Leeds fan; we've had many disappointments over the years but relegation to the third division hurt more than any. I was a bit young and naive when we got relegated from the Premier League, despite all financial concerns i never thought it'd be any more than a couple of years before we were back. Fast forward 3 years and how wrong was I? On the verge of administration, we were staring at our lowest point in our history: the third tier of English football. But then something happened, with moments like David Healy's late winner against Preston and a brilliant penalty save securing the points against Luton it looked as though we were going to make a great escape. With 5 minutes to go, we're leading Ipswich in the penultimate game and then they put a ball in the box, our defenders switch off and their striker nods the ball home. I was stood right behind the goal, I don't think me or my 2 friends said a thing until we left the ground. Thousands of our fans ran on the pitch protesting against the chairman/owner (and unfortunately some dickheads took out their frustrations on the traveling Ipswich fans) but I just stood there with my head in my hands. A truly awful moment. On the positive side I can think of 3 that stand out. Two were from the following season. We were docked 15 points, we'd put together a team on a shoestring budget after selling anyone worth a dime but the fans rallied behind the club. Not the owner, not even particularly the team or management, but ourselves; I went to a preseason friendly against York and at that point we didn't know if we were going to be in existence at the start of the season but we sang for 90 minutes and declared that "forever and ever, we're Leeds United"... But that wasn't even the highlight, the highlight was when we wiped out the 15 point deficit in 5 games. I can't remember who we beat, I want to say Hartlepool, but I do remember the vast majority of the crowd not leaving the ground for 20 minutes or so as we chanted "zero" amongst otherthings while sticking up two fingers to the football league. No matter what happens to this club, however many cowboy owners and spineless players we go through, the fans will never lie down and take it. Another one was in the same season, away at Carlisle in the playoff semi. Whilst the final didn't end well, and I imagine a certain poster may well include it in his highlights (😛), we'd all resigned ourselves to extra time and penalties when Johnny Howson scuffed a shot into the bottom corner in the 91st minute. That ball seemed to take forever to cross the line and I'm not entirely sure the collective intake of breath behind the goal didn't dragthe ball over the line. Pandemonium then ensued as we realised that we might just achieve they impossible. We didn't in the end but even getting to Wembley was an achievement all things considered. And finally, the final whistle at Old Trafford in January 2010. I wasn't at this game as I refused to pay 70 quid to see us get beat by Man United's 3rd team. As it turned out, they put out a strong side and we managed to beat them. I was in the pub watching it and the Beckford goal was obviously well celebrated. But as the clock went over 90 minutes, it had Fergie time equaliser written all over it. They didn't deserve it but we'd seen it so many times over the years that we almost all couldn't bear to watch. I don't think I'll ever forget my mate Chris shouting "COME ON BLOW THE FUCKING..... GET IN!" in my ear, I've never heard a roar like it in a pub... I'd think the Man United fans in the pub 3-400 yards up the road heard us. Anyway, whether you were there or watching at home, what are your highlights and lowlights of supporting your team?
