I have no expectations but it is good to see our name up there.

Exactly, Mr Sheep.

Just want the scummy owner and his cronies out, let the 'manager' and his personnel do their jobs.

I think Cellino is still in deep poopoo but don't quote me as I know chuff all

Tough month ahead but better be near the top than the bottom.

Issues for me are too many key loan players that need to be signed up
Cellino is a loose cannon all be it a quiet one atm.
Is there money for signings in January to push on?
When will Taylor go and who is the backup? Coyle is injured and young. Berardi can play either side but prone to injury.

Great win at Norwich though.

Get a point(s) against Newcastle and I think we might be up there for a while.

Liverpool is a distraction though. Get tonked by them and it might have a knock on effect.

I hope no one on here is close to Rob Atkinson who wrote the above 'article', another piece of nonsense in a long series of it from him.

Holy fuck! We might not be as good as Brighton or the Barcodes, but we can make a strong case for being the best of the rest.

We have half a dozen players who are at the top of their game at the moment. And some who aren't (Roofe and Sacko) have improved vastly since the start of the season.

Oh i don't know, we kinda gifted both them teams their first goals. Would have been interesting if we played them level as it were. Its our defence, they are effing awesome and that includes total defending, from Wood back. Loved how we didnt get suckered into Reading's appalling back four possesion game last night. Chuff me i was embarrased for them

Exactly LD, okay we lost 2-0 to NU and BHA but neither team looked that good.  From Reading fans  I'd heard they were 'over achieving' and it certainly looked that way on Tuesday.  Consistency is a major key in this pretty poor division so if we can continue winning our home games and picking up a few points away, we're definite play off contenders without much effort.  You watch, Brentford will turn us over .

Off the field the stability is refreshing and much of it is down to one man not interfering, and now there are strong reports that a takeover is near completion.  I am looking forward to seeing people like Cellino and his scummy sons, Terry George, Umbers, Bates I hope, never darkening our door ever again.

wow, that would be some day if that happens. Something else as well, that was a ballsy descision to take Wood off as a precaution, Mr Monk is starting to impress

Might disagree a bit with you OC (nothing new there) regarding Newcastle. A combination of us not really turning up and them looking like an odds on promotion team in my eyes.

But Brighton was different. Ok they had the lions share of the possession up to the sending off/penalty but it was that incident that gifted Brighton with the 3 points. Even with 10 men there was nothing between the two teams.

You could well be right, I think Monk also fielded the wrong 11 v NU - there was no flair or pace in that Leeds side plus it seemed the players were told to sit back and let Newc attack instead of taking the game to them.  We played it like we were the away team.  Notable that since then, against two rated teams (Villa and Reading) that the team is playing a much more pressing game up front.  Anyway, Newc hardly broke sweat in beating us, we def didn't 'turn up' you're right

I don't claim to be In The Know but I sometimes speak with folk who appear to have strong contacts involved in the business of LU.  This is when I can be arsed to ask pertinent questions of people who know I won't blab.  Thing is LD, I would say that ALL the rumours - those that aren't 'mischievous' or plain daft - have element of truth in.  

A takeover is happening and it is, I believe, Radrizzani on his own, he is NOT close mates or neighbours with Cellino so conspiracy theories are a bit wide of the mark I think.  He is proven to be loaded (recently sold his hefty share of MP & Silva) and he has a very good, transparent record in business and football dealings.  Personally I think he will look to 'flip' the club once he has stabilized it.

Various quotes as to the actual deal % have been given but I keep hearing, inc from media blokes, that Cellino needs to sell and that the club is still losing money at an alarming rate.

Anyway, I'll shut up now but one quote from someone who knows Cellino, when I asked a while ago what was happening, why's there a delay with the takeover, they replied 'I think the deal is 50% of the club now and 50% at the end of the season, because Cellino wants the money AND the glory'.

lots of late goals going in. Sign of a team that's fit and motivated.

Hope all this off field stuff doesn't distract Monk and the boys.
