We’re kicked off and underway. #lufcLUFC Official 21′ // A slow start isn’t being helped by the referee We’ve got one of those refs who thinks we’re here to watch him blow his whistle. #LUFC #SWFCThe Scratching Shed 27′ // GOAL – Leeds United 0-1 Sheffield Wednesday (Jermaine Johnson) GOAL: Jermaine Johnson scores for Wednesday, Warnock caught out by a bouncing ball. #lufc 1-0 downPhil Hay GOAL!!!! Helan sets up JJ and he chips the ball over Kenny and in for a Wednesday lead! 0-1!!! GET IN! #swfcSheffield Wednesday Nice finish from Johnson but Warnock Should’ve had that all day long. #lufcJennifer Berry 36′ // 1-0 down, but fear not, The Square Ball has a plan… Maybe colin can come down from the stands at HT and sort us out. #lufcThe Square Ball 38′ // With a player from each side down injured, the physios go into battle… Massive cheer for the #lufc physio winning the race to the injured players. #lolzJennifer Berry HT // Leeds United 0-1 Sheffield Wednesday HT #lufc 0 #swfc 1. The worst thing about this is that Wednesday haven’t even had to play for it. Just battled a bit.Phil Hay Phil Hay sums up the first 45 minutes, but he needn’t fear, I know how to solve this… Hall or White or even Diouf for Varney is obvious HT sub. Varney is less a winger than I am an astronaut. #LUFCThe Scratching Shed 58′ // Preparing more words to eat later… White on for Morison, think Varney has gone central. Unlikely saviour. #LUFCThe Scratching Shed 60′ // GOAL – Leeds United 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday (Luke Varney) Luke Varney heading home today #lufc pic.twitter.com/UgWltm6SL2Leeds United GOAL: 1-1 Varney header hits the crossbar and crosses the line. Well spotted by the linesman.Phil Hay Great cross from McCormack, thumping header from Varney, Swarbrick gave it straightaway after it bounced back off woodwork #lufc #swfcleon wobschall 1-1 Leeds Leeds Leeds #MOT Leeds are staying up staying up! Leeds are staying up!!Victor McDade I figure the ONLY way to address that “unlikely saviour” tweet is by taking full credit for the goal… OMFG LUKE VARNEY!!! #LUFCThe Scratching Shed Had to be after that last tweet haha. #lufcThe Scratching Shed 67′ // GOAL – Leeds United 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday (Luke Varney) Varney celebrates his second on his knees #lufc pic.twitter.com/SVLd2iQZ9MLeeds United VARNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY. I have officially seen it all now. 2-1. #lufcThe Scratching Shed 83′ // A nervy finish has Phil Hay going all Scooby Doo on us… Jeepers creepers…mad scramble which Kenny sees off then Lita pulls the ball wide with only Kenny to beat. #lufcPhil Hay FT // Leeds United 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday FT #lufc 2 #swfc 1. Diouf’s introduction the key, gave Leeds some badly-needed unpredictability. This kills talk of relegation.Phil Hay Big cuddles with Brian McDermott and Neil Redfearn at the full time whistle #lufc pic.twitter.com/nC1SfoJS7tLeeds United Deserved applause for McDermott, made iimmediate impact with several telling changes. Super start #lufcleon wobschall Brian McDermott comes on to the pitch at full time to congratulate the team #lufc pic.twitter.com/Y7fl0xHfH7Leeds United Let’s not forget 2 assists for @Rossmccormack44.

Wearing my crown. #SubstitutionKing #lufc pic.twitter.com/HtcxzYp6bfBrian McDermott “Na na na na na na na na na, Leeds are staying up, STAYING UP, Leeds are staying up…” #lufcThe Scratching Shed From todays game we can finally say R.I.P HoofBall #LUFC #MOTRightintheGaryKellys Get in there!! Sure need this feeling more often. Thanks to the amazing fans for sticking with us!! MOTRoss McCormack Paul Mcknockiter This forum is ridiculous TSS There’s a conventional match report too – http://www.thescratchingshed.com/2013/04/varney-brace-secures-leeds-championship-status/ – just trialling something different. spellz I thought it made for an interesting scroll TSS, I enjoyed the tweet report keep them coming. spellz I believe this forum has people who can assess Leeds as a club in a educated manner and others thoughts on here inspire me and let me know that we are all in the same boat, great forum. Paul Donnelly This guy is a complete tosser. Goes round blogs saying they are rubbish etc. What a sad act. brachm1 He constantly turns up on my site with negative comments. zulfikar aleksandri is that mag available on pdf? #mot TSS It is, you can buy it here – http://www.thesquareball.net/shop/back-issues/2012-2013/issue-8/ djedjedje I actually really enjoyed the Tweet report – especially with the photos (my android version of TSS only shows the text in a blocky format so less effective). This said, if we’d gone down 1-0 yesterday I doubt we’d be so up for this bit of fun! djedjedje I bet Mini-Diouf is looking forwards to being old enough to emulate his Leeds United namesake in a ‘night out’ with Ms. Courtney Webb plus unnamed stripper. ….If you believe The Sun. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4886798/el-hadji-diouf-cheats-on-wife-and-daughter.html spellz Whilst banging out his own version of knocking on heavens door.
