Weekend off

A rare Saturday off for Leeds United fans, but the rest of the teams carried on with out us. Norwich were held to a 1-1 draw at Swindon thanks to a last minute equaliser from Greer, whilst third place Charlton also drew at home to Gillingham (2-2).

Meanwhile, Colchester lost away to Walsall whilst Southampton and Huddersfield both recorded away wins at MK Dons and Leyton Orient. Overall, it’s been a pretty good day for Leeds United then. Swindon and Norwich shared the spoils which haults Swindon’s climb, leaving them four points behind ourselves (having played a game more). Charlton also failed to take their chances and drew so Leeds could open a seven point gap up on Monday with a win over the in-form Millwall.

Millwall will present a strong challenge for the inconsistent Leeds United side, but aside from the trip to Southampton, we’ve looked a bit better lately and I’m pretty confident the Sky Sports factor will help us achieve a much needed win.

Somma makes it six

Elsewhere today, on-loan Leeds United striker Davide Somma netted another two goals for League Two side Lincoln City to help them to a 3-2 win over Torquay United. The striker has now managed six goals in as many games for Lincoln. The idea of going out on-loan will have been to try and impress the manager back in Leeds and work his way into our plans, and with such impressive goal-scoring stats, I imagine Simon has been taking as much notice as the rest of us.

Scum fans rig Leeds poll

Those pesky glory-hunting cretins (Manchester United fans) have been busy casting votes in a Leeds United fans greatest player poll to change the obvious outcome of Billy Bremner to Eric Cantona.

This calls for an instant response. Update your firewall, run your virus scanner, defrag your hard-drive and be incredibly cautious around any pro-ManU sites. This is the start of the E-hooliganism wars. A bit like the 80’s but ran by geeks. The FA needs to act now!

Blackwell heading for dole queue

Seems Sheffield United fans have finally tired of Kevin Blackwell and want him replacing in the summer. They point to poor transfer signings and horrible displays of football as their main reasons (deja vu anyone?)

Never liked the man while he was the Leeds boss. Found him intolerable in interviews, his signings were largely atrocious and the football on display was less interesting than the George Graham days, so can totally empathise with the Sheffield lot. Still… Couldn’t help but laugh.
