That is about the best example of a headline not matching the story you'll see this year.
Headline: JS turns down Leeds.
Story: There was no contact between Leeds and JS.

This made me spit my food out laughing :lol:

I'm just glad he shaved his head, he was looking even older before that when he was at Preston. Needs to go zero though all over though.

Saw old TC at Manchester Airport yesterday, all packed with his bags ready to fly home. I felt a bit sorry for him to be honest as he was pushing his trolley; he was just out of his depth in this league and at a club with the size and ambition and expectation of Leeds.

He was unlucky with injuries granted, but since the wheels started come off after our great start i noticed a worrying trend of his inability to stop the rot during games tactically. He was out of his depth.

Rosler had a few fans on here, not many fans at Fleetwood though, he's had the boot.

We've sacked many managers in our recent history, there's always cries on here from the "give them more time gang". Facts are that their sacked for a reason, everyone that we've given the boot has gone on to achieve precisely fuck all.

Its mostly bad choices by the owners of bringing in the cheap options.

Bates, GFH, Cellino, & Radz are/were expecting promotion with a wage cap on our squad that make it almost impossible to get promoted.

Out better players are not going to hang around here on 15 grand a week. We've set out our five year plan stall by giving mid-table championship players long term contracts.

Hiring TC and this latest Water Mellon tells me all I need to know about where we're heading.

Still, only just over four more years of it to go :thumbl:

Another owner will walk out of the door a lot better off than the day they walked through it.

No, I think he succeeded in his mission whilst with us :mrgreen:
The fact that we are not taking care of the planet, our children will pay the consequences. With football it will be the same because we're destroying football and in the future we'll see the negative effects. Those who have power are responsible for it.

I took a shit load of stick on here for rating our Col. I'm a forgiving person so I forgive their lack of football knowledge :) Bates sold him down the river with false promises to get him to join us.

He was given just two and a half million quid to spend and brought in 12 players.
Bates recouped four million in players out.

He’s still an insufferable cunt though
Because a thing seems difficult for you, do not think it impossible for anyone to accomplish.
