The Ku Klux Klan, Leeds
Anyone that attended yesterdays stroll in the park win against Brighton may have taken a little offence to the makeshift rain poncho things provided by Brighton.
With blustery, wet and cold conditions at the seaside, Brighton’s ramshackle stadium, which most Conference teams would deem inadequate provided no cover whatsoever for the crowd. Brighton’s answer to their sub-standard accomadation was to provide the fans with White rain protectors, that made the Leeds fans look like a travelling branch of the Ku Klux Klan.
I guess that’s what happens when you fail to listen to your Mother’s advice and go prepared for all eventualities. I think Brighton may need to re-address the policy though, as the picture I’ve “borrowed” from MOT at Travels Of A Leeds Fan shows, it was an obvious resemblance to the racist idiots.
100 and counting for Becks
Jermaine Beckford celebrated his 100th appearence for Leeds United yesterday with another goal, taking his seasons tally to 12. Well on track to match last years impressive tally, assuming he’s still wearing a Leeds shirt at the end of January that is.
Kilkenny vs Howson
Noticed a poll on a Leeds United forum I’m a regular on asking whether Howson should be dropped in place of Neil Kilkenny.
Killa played brilliantly yesterday and I don’t want to take anything away from his performance. He’s continually impressed lately and is getting more time in the first team as a result. However, Jonny has hardly put a foot wrong all season so why on earth is he the one who should be dropped?
My overall feelings on this issue is that the midfield works. Killa is snapping at the other players heels and thats a good thing. He’s making them fight for their place and keeping them on their toes, but one excellent game doesn’t mean he should replace a consistently good player.
Much like the defence, with Rui, Michalik, Naylor and Kisnorbo all performing well this season, the midfield also has options and that’s what makes a great team with enough depth to challenge for the title. Killa got a game yesterday as Johnson seems to have picked up an injury. Naylor was also missing and Michalik was in as a replacement. Despite having a few first-team regulars missing, we cruised to victory.
It’s a great feeling knowing the squad has so much depth and can beat teams when we pick up injuries. The first team however doesn’t really need changing. Everyone deserves their place and until someones performances drop, you can’t change that. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.
Edit: You know what, stuff it. This isn’t the EU. Democracy is king at TSS, let’s have a poll.
