Dog Botherers 20th Sept

Me and Badge are both up for the game, and PM has indicated he is free from ceremonial duties that day.

My knowledge of the trendiest drinking places in Leeds is woefully out of date, but the Duck and Drake at least had competent bar staff and ample standing room.

My sincere apologies, but it appears I may have been rather premature with my expression of interest.

It has been brought to my attention that the younger young Lady O will be entering tertiary education that weekend, and will require conveyance to the establishment, together with the obligatory firm handshake to mark our separation. The elder young Lady O is also scheduled to return to education around the same time and will also require conveyance, ditto firm hanshake.

So in essence, while one may be free from ceremonial duties, ruddy family duties might put a spanner in the works instead.

Yep, tickets have arrived and have a lift arranged.
Would be great to meet up pre - match for a pint or two.
The pub that i came to last time was a good un.
Dog and Drake was it?

Duck & Drake I'm guessing. Were there bare floorboards and strong smell of piss from toilets?
smiling badger

Yes and yes.

The Duck and Drake has undergone a major transformation. (If my memory serves me right, Mr Forest, you were personally responsible for a not insignificant amount of the work undertaken.)  How on earth can you expect somebody to recognise a place from such flimsy description?


Was there a shell of a guitar nailed to the door of the gents, and strong smell of piss from therein?
smiling badger

Not sure about the guitar but smell of piss, yes.

There again, that could have been simply due to sheeps hanging around.

Speaking of which,  any news of the old feller?

Haven't enjoyed a match so much since the Grayson glory days.

Give Redfern the job!

Belated Match Report

I suspect that, bearing in mind the number of goals we have put past the Dog Botherers over the past few years, LD is holed up in a safe house somewhere.

The team is virtually unrecognisable from last year's. Both in terms of personnel and attitude.

The Italian contingent has certainly added a new dimension to our game and also brought out the best in some of the existing squad, who seem to to have gained in confidence as a result of having more technically adept players around them, and being given more freedom to express themselves.

Pearce was almost faultless. Warnock and Austin both had excellent games. I haven't always been Austin's greatest fan, but he took his goal superbly, and slipped a lovely pass to Doukara for the third goal.

Bianchi was out of this world. I read elsewhere that he completed 74 out of 80 passes. He wasn't just a man having a good game, he looked in a completely different class. His ability to hold the ball and release clever short passes had the E stand gasping!

Antenucci never stopped running. His hassling of their full back made Austin's goal. Just ignore what I said about him last week please.

Bellusci will become a Leeds legend if he continues with his inspired charges up the middle. A centre half trying to chip the goalie from 30 yds and nearly succeeding!. Could hardly believe my eyes. Rarely saw Tom Lees abandon the safety of his own half even for set pieces.

Only black mark goes against Berardi. Their winger, Bunn, was giving him a sticky time* and he was deservedly sent off for two crude challenges. We looked a lot better after Byram came on.

The rest were all 7/10 or above!

29,000 made it a great atmosphere. If we continue to play like this, then the top six isn't an impossibility.

Long, tedious journey due to Highways agency, who are digging up the M1 at the M62 and M18 junctions. 'We're sorry for any delays'. Are you really? No more than 4/10 on the sorryness scale i suspect.

That was a cream of a joke, well done!

Afterthought

I'm encouraged be the way the goals have been shared out so far this season. Last two years we've been completely dependent on McCormack and if he was having an off day then that was it.
Frazier Cranium

That comment makes it look like Leeds players have had a choice of who scored and everyone decided it should be McCormack.  Some bloody hope , and just because we've scored 7 in 3 games doesn't alter the fact we haven't scored many at all and are still hardly in plus goal difference

Maungy or morngy? A question that has baffled great minds across the mists of time. This could be bigger than ginnel or snicket. We might need a bigger thread!

*pm's admin about possible bigger thread permission*
Frazier Cranium

Oh here we go, I'm called maungy or morngy or whatever because I'm showing a bit of realism in the world of Leeds United that is suddenly wonderful again because we have won two in a row

That's better, you sound a lot more positive now.

Notice you didn't deny the old bit...

I applaud Codge's realistic outlook. Just had a look at the the current table. Ten goals in nine games. All LU will ever be is an averageish second division side. Ain't no use in praying, that's the way it's staying! I'll get back in my box now yer big bunch of knobbers!
