When you see impact Bielsa has had at Leeds it makes you weep for the lack of bravery and nous in our boardroom
Very good world wide businessmen and global contacts etc but what do they know about championship .... indeed what does purslow or foreign director of football know about it too ?

What did Bielsa know about it? I find the argument that the Championship is like a different sport just ridiculous. You just need to do your job well, Dean, his coaching staff and the players aren’t at the moment.

For the Hull game, I'd play McGinn and Tammy (if he's still here), and draft in the u23s around them. None of these cnuts deserve to keep the shirt on that showing.

How is Conor doing?

Same old. Utter shite. Lots of pointing and shuffling around, and doing nothing of any substance.
Being the useless c*** that he is
And Smith hasn’t worked this out.

my concern with Smith was that the job would eat him up. It is.

It certainly seems that way. It sounds like a number of the players he inherited don't fancy playing for him 'n' all...

We are in a bad run. Nothing more. This seems a bit over dramatic.

Maybe so, but how do you explain the performances since the WBA game? There's something badly wrong at the club: and the players need to take their share of the blame. This is completely unacceptable.

Dave P - I'm not being over dramatic. We are useless. Anyone can pick up draws in any division. We don't have a winning mentality and I'm not sure Smith is going to instill that here, with or without a few recruits.

Yet again, we help to revitalise a side that was on it's arse.

Jesus. Another brainless player in Hasue - how many times did he play to the keeper's right leg,  clearly not wanting it there? Over and over

Taylor ball control like pinball machine - 2-3 bounces every fucking time

He is left footed,  and isn't good with his right,  so stop fucking playing it there Hause, he already signalled it to him several times

Probably the same as the 'foreign director of football' at Leeds.

I had to watch the game in amongst the Wigan fans. They were taking the piss out of us and you could'nt blame them .Apart from Kalinic and McGinn the players were awful .Watching Taylor ,Hause ,Hourihane and Whelan being humiliated in the last ten minutes will always stay in my mind .They looked totally clueless and i think we were lucky it was only three in the end
