Leeds United


Leds Utd (U23's) 3 - 2 Millwall (U23's)

The Whites - who fielded a strong side including Ezgjan Alioski, Helder Costa and on-loan Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah, took the lead seven minutes from the break when Alioski's cutback was converted by Pascal Struijk inside the area.

After the break, Nketiah entered the fray and got his name on the scoresheet with a neat finish after Leeds broke down the left-hand side through Jordan Stevens with a low delivery.

With the hosts looking to slow the tempo down, The Lions won a penalty 15 minutes from time as George Alexander made a terrific burst with the ball into the area, brought down 15 yards from goal.

The striker took the kick himself and was initially denied down low to his right by goalkeeper Ilian Meslier, before pouncing to net the rebound and half the deficit.

Millwall were soon back level, as Billy Mitchell received the ball outside the area and let fly with a remarkable low drive which fizzed past Meslier into the bottom-left corner - a deserved leveller for The Lions who had battled hard against a strong hosting side.

But it was to be Leeds who played the final card, with Mateusz Bogusz firing a deflected free-kick past Ryan Sandford six minutes into injury time.


It will all be different when we play for real Bob

Seems we have a number of Leeds fans on here so I thought we deserved our own thread smile

Greatest team of all time:

1) Gary Sprake

2) Paul Reaney

3) Terry Cooper

4) Billy Bremner

5) Jack Charlton

6) Norman Hunter

7) Peter Lorimer

8) Allan Clarke

9) Mick Jones

10) Jonny Giles

11) Eddie Gray

12) Paul Madeley (Super Sub)

OK. So I know I am showing my age, but these were the really good times for LUFC.

And although I am a softy southerner, who has never lived north of London (except in my Uni years) I have been to Elland Road many times.

 


 Just seen this. I think I'd always put david harvey above gary sprake but heh. Sprake v Birmingham? Come on! Harvey was the man! 

Down my road lived David Stewart, replaced sprake in mid 70s , rang his doorbell and got his autograph one long ago night.

 The only problem with this side is that they all got old at the same time - then they had nothing. David Harvey may well have been the better keeper but he never had much in front of him. wink

Well, the current team has started well again, 7 points from 9 so far, Championship shaping up well at this early stage, just hope Wednesday don't stay at the top too long (although the famous Wednesday blue and white stripes was the second kit I ever wore in the back garden aged 6 or 7. After Leeds of course, and just before Burnley !)

 Indeed, looking like a good purchase!

Good to see Lee Bowyer doing well at Charlton as well!

Has Wrighty passed his medical ?

Bowyer may well end up being your short term nemesis but long term messiah. Must be a candidate for the next Leeds manager when you fade and die at the end of the season.

Charlton played the best football I have seen for a decade at the Valley last night. Over the first 60 minutes I swear I was watching Barcelona with Dulwich Hamlet legend 5ft Erun Otzumer (aka the SE London Turkish Cypriot Messi) pulling the strings, Gallagher on a one year sabbatical at the Charlton finishing school from Chelsea is also a smashing player at 19 close to being too good for the championship.

Given it is a rag tag side still learning 1-1 draw with a very experienced Forest was impressive although they were good enough in every phase except defending corners for a win. Great night and so good to see the Valley rocking despite underlying political uncertainty similar to that of Bolton and Bury. They have one major asset, Bowyer the goose capable of a golden egg or two!

Kalvin Phillips has just signed a new 5 year contract with the club. Vital part of Bielsa's strategy so great news. Especially as we saw off a 20m pound bid from "some club in the Midlands". over the summer. wink

Didn't get to see any of the match today and by all accounts it was a battle. But Yorkshire derbies normally are and we got over the line in the end. Some tough decisions week in week out now for Bielsa - Harrison/Costa and Bamford/Nketiah. Great to have such competition for places. It is what we lacked in the end last year.

Top of the table. Can't complain about that.

PS: To my friend Seagull. Ben White is an absolute class act wink

Huge day for LUFC today. Not just talking about the 1-0 win against Birmingham taking us back into the automatic promotion places thanks to a goal from local hero Kalvin Phillips, but for those who don't follow Leeds, this week was the 100th anniversary of the founding of the club. Apparently we lost our first ever fixture in 1919 to Port Vale 2-0. Today turned out to be a better day in front of a 35.000+ crowd including numerous legends from the clubs history.

Happy 100th Birthday to Leeds. Weird to think that I have supported them for almost half of their existence.

All the best to Dominic Matteo, ex Leeds for 4 or 5 Premier League seasons , as well as Liverpool of course, who today underwent surgery for a brain tumour. Here is wishing him and his family all the best.
