    Well it sounds good that the other players speak well of him. On his Wiki page it says he has 5 goals in 22 appearances, that is pretty good production, makes you think he'd see more time.

    Skilled but not tough sounds kinda like the opposite of Altidore.

    Another day another win. Up to 5th now. Premiership here we come!

    Or maybe I should wait 41 more games.

    Probably. They just got hammered 5-2 by Barnsley.

    What a ****ing shambles that was! Still, 40 games to go and we're on TV this Friday. A good win then and we'll be back in the playoffs.

    It was even worse as we took 7,000 fans away to bloody Barnsley on a Tuesday night.

    Off to Elland Road today for another Yorkshire derby against Sheffield United.

    Taking my daughter to her first Leeds game too.

    Unbeaten in 8 games now. Up to 4th in the Championship, only 2 points off second.

    Plus I have confirmation that I got tickets to watch us play Arsenal in the FA Cup. 8,500 Leeds fans will be swarming North London Januray 8th!

    I didn't get very many pics of the game, but here are a couple of vids I found online.

    I was really let down by the Arsenal 'fans'. They were so bloody quiet I forgot they were even there for most of the game. Was a great day, just hope we can get em in the replay.

    This one is from before the game started. Arsenal fans still coming into the stadium




    WACCOE chant and goal celebrations.


    and this one actually catches me. Not planned, just somebody who was sat near me. You can see me at about 1:55 along the bottom (left to right as the camera moves). I have two scarves on (one yellow, one white) and a black top. I'm also starting to go bald so hair line is heading backwards.

    Not looking good for Leeds. 3 points out of the playoffs with 2 matches remaining.

    I hope Leeds goes, they are a proper Premier team, unlike Wigan. But if they do manage to go up will they be allowed? Have they disclosed who their owners are?

    Utter shite is how I would describe the way we have finished the season. We are still in with a shout but need Forest and Millwall to lose one of their last two games.

    Still, I would have taken top half of the table if offered it at the start of the season.

    Well, after a rocky start we are starting to steady the ship.

    Three points off playoffs, but with a game in hand. Also, of our nine game so far, we have played - 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th (as well as 10th & 12th) So quite a few top half and playoff teams. Our next three games are against bottom half teams.

    We finally had a clean sheet yesterday. We have no problem finding the back of the net, but neither do other teams against us.

    Excellent. I've always liked Leeds, and want them back in the Premiership.

    Another win today. Over-shadowed by the tribute to Gary Speed.

    The first name I ever got on a shirt was Speed. The midfield we had winning the title in 92 was fantastic.

    R.I.P. Gary Speed

    This video was from the midweek Forest game. On the 11th minute for 11 minutes the fans chanted his name. A few seconds after, Leeds scored.
