    West Brom at home

    I thought Leeds looked better. Pereira is probably the best player to play at Ewood this season though. He's definitely a premier league player. Just a shame that he dived a couple of times to try and win a pen.

    Sam Gallagher Returns

    Given that he's had a lot of stick this season, it's nice to say that he was excellent when he came on today. Pace, power and end product. Set up our goal and also set up the one on one for Davenport.

    West Brom at home

    So frustrating not to win it at the end but a draw was probably a fair result. The subs changed the game. There's had a negative influence on their performance whereas ours took us up a level. Who was that striker that came on? He was called Gallagher or something like that. He looked very good! Holtby was outstanding when he came on. Rothwell and Davenport also impressed. I like the look of Rankin-Costello. Good on the ball and athletic.

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    The Owen Coyle team was lge 1 fodder. The team we had then was beyond useless.

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    The resources we have are way below the resources teams above us have. Look at WBA, Fulham, Leeds, Notts Forest, Cardiff, Swansea. They all have bigger budgets and bigger wage bills than us. I wouldn't expect us to be above them. Brentford are the team everyone looks at because they've built slowly, and invested and re-invested very well. With the resources at his disposal, to go from lge 1 fodder to a good championship team in 3 years is very good progress. However that progress has to continue next season.

    Mowbray: Stay or Go - A Poll

    I have voted stay. There have been a couple of times this season where I have called for him to go, but once you strip back the emotion and look at it objectively we have had a decent season. We are where we should be imo with the squad we have; we’re not quite good enough for top 6. Plus, we have improved on last season, and that’s despite being without our best player for a large chunk of the season. There’s no doubt he’s made mistakes throughout the season. He also made two big mistakes in the summer transfer window last summer - using most of our transfer budget on Gallagher and getting rid of David Raya. Next season is a biggie. I expect us to make a firm push for the top 6, rather than just flirting with it.

    Cardiff away

    Can’t wait to see the back of Walton. Absolutely useless. We lose the first goal yet again, just as we have in every game since the re-start.

    Summer Transfer Window

    Wouldn’t these just be fans who already have season tickets and they’ve been auto-enrolled for next season? It may help cash flow in the short term but they will have to refund that money at some point. I certainly don’t see any fans being allowed in for the first half of the season.

    Summer Transfer Window

    I think this will be a summer when football presses the re-set button and we see a correction in terms of wages and transfer fees. I don’t see anyone other than those with parachute payments spending any money this summer. Even those with parachute payments will have to cut their cloth accordingly as the likelihood is that no one will be making any money from season ticket sales next season. I do think we’ll see a sale of a key player to cover the losses from now season ticket money. I also don’t expect anything other than our transfer budget to cover wages for players, I can’t see a transfer fee being paid. There are some good free transfers coming onto the market and hopefully we can work some magic in the loan market. Id love to see Jordan Rhodes come back here on a free. Brewster would be amazing on loan, but don’t see us being in the running. Ben Gibson would be a good option at CB if he’s prepared to take a huge pay cut, and Cunningham would do nicely at LB.

    Leeds at Home 4.7.20

    Huge gulf in class sadly. We get 1 point off the play off places and then we go on to lose three in a row, conceding 7 and scoring 1. Happens every time we get in touching distance.

    Leeds at Home 4.7.20

    If we are to make a serious attempt at promotion next season then Gallagher, Johnson, Bennett, Rothwell, Holtby need to become back up players and not see so much game time. Tbh a lot of those are already back up players but have seen more game time than we’d like due to injuries. Holtby has disappointed me since signing, I was expecting a lot more quality from him.

    Leeds at Home 4.7.20

    Game over. Season over. Both teams wide open at the back but they have way more quality to expose the gaps. I didn't think for a split second Gallagher would score when he went through one on one. His place in the starting 11 has to start being judged on his performances rather than his transfer fee. If he cost 100k, there's no way he'd be anywhere near the starting line up.

    Leeds at Home 4.7.20

    Tbh I’m not sure. If it is, why extend his contract to the end of the season? Doesn’t make sense at all.

    Leeds at Home 4.7.20

    It’s hard to criticise Bennett, he gives his all in every game and seems to genuinely care about the club. However, he is a very limited player and struggles badly at LB.

    Leeds at Home 4.7.20

    I don’t really understand why Sam Hart was given an extension to the end of the season if he can’t even get in the squad when our other two LBs are injured.
