Becchio strikes back

Lucciano Becchio made his return to action for the Leeds United reserves last night as they beat Lincoln City 2-1. Becchio opened the scoring on 27 minutes with a lobbed goal, but Lincoln equalised from the penalty spot soon after. The final goal came from Davide Somma four minutes before the break who has now scored in his last two reserve outings.

Great to have Becchio back in action. Wouldn’t be suprised to see him play a part in the FA Cup tie against Kettering Town on Sunday as he looks to regain match fitness. Davide Somma seems to be coming on nicely too. What this means for on-loan striker Sam Vokes is anyones guess, but I doubt Simon Grayson will be looking to extend his loan period in January. For me, he hasn’t been worth it.

Loan swoop for Cardiff City left-back?

The loan deadline expires this evening meaning Simon Grayson won’t be able to make any further additions to his squad until the January transfer window opens. However, the Yorkshire Evening Post (amongst others) are reporting a possible move for Cardiff City left-back, Tony Capaldi.

Not sure this is totally necessary as Jason Crowe played in the reserves last night so is close to a return. Aidy White also gave an excellent performance after coming on as a sub early in the second half on Tuesday. However, I can’t fault Grayson for covering his bases. It seems Hughes has picked up an injury so it’s definitely better to be safe than sorry.

Another milestone for TSS

Back in August, it looked like TSS had come to an end after just a few months. The previous host cancelled the account for no clear reason, although I believe this was because they couldn’t cope with the traffic. The site continually experienced problems under them whenever demand was high.

Anyway, back then I lost all the posts I’d made, all the comments users had contributed and all the other site content. It was a frustrating day and I seriously considered giving it up for good. However, my stubborn ways wouldn’t let the unreliable host defeat me, so I found a new one (Hostgator, who have been brilliant!) and set about re-launching the site.

Since that day, there’s been 112 posts on TSS which have received a combined total of over 125,000 visits, many of these returning visits from users that now frequent the site daily, and the latest milestone is entirely down to the sites users. Yesterday TSS passed the 1,000 comment mark, so thanks to everyone that’s participated and helped make the site a success. MOT.
