Question: was it The Heck who bought Mowatt and White from us?

Meh. FLA / BF / EDL are all different cheeks of the same fash arse. Genuinely mystified as to why such a thing would cause you to get your M&S Y-fronts in a twist anyway?

Yes but contextually, both signings made sense at the time, especially to a lower level club. When they signed White initially on loan he did well for them and they won the JPT (more than we ever managed) and the play-offs. They let him go when it was clear he wasn't going to much use in the Championship. Mowatt had been in terrific form earlier in the year (albeit the season prior) when they bought him and as I recall, even Leeds fans were unsure about the wisdom of selling him at that time. It's worth remembering that he's been living off scraps for the longest time and those are the sort of players you are offered at that level.

Regardless, Victor Orta does the shopping for us, for better or worse.

That's not what he said though is it. He said he looks EDL, which he does. It doesn't mean owt about his actual character.

Everyone has been on TSB forum before right? Taking the piss out of how people look is fairly common.

Because it is a truth universally acknowledged that EDL are a bunch of racist scumbags.
Saying he looks like one is a step too far imo.

Taking the piss out of his shit hair is one thing ...

Tommy is quite correct. But he does have a fash haircut and a somewhat Robinson / Golding-esque pinched, pasty face, don't you think?

Are we becoming lefty fucking snowflakes on here?

Eric is entitled to his opinion, well as long as he keeps it to himself.....
We had a meeting at work today and I was asked what steps I would take in the event of a fire. Apparently "fucking big ones" wasn't the right answer

I think it's just called having hair.

I think his features have slipped an inch too far down his face - probably his forehead had a sudden growth spurt and forgot to tell the rest of him. As for the pinched look, I'm putting it down to all the Leeds hating he's been doing in his younger days.

No, they also have some form of DoF model, they were bought for him because their cheap spreadsheet version of moneyball told them to.
