Good morning lads. Just watched the game. Did bussleton jetty swim at the weekend so unable to watch live. A slight improvement from us i thought. We played semi well for a few bits of the game. Few iffy ref decisions. Prob deserved the draw. Quite a lot of improving still needed but we had more passion and whole team put effort in. Lacking in quality in few areas and roofe, sacko, okane, phillips don't seem to have the ability needed. Hopefully viera regains his mojo. Saiz to come back and tyler lass and eukaba to fight it out for frontline. Optimistic without being completely happy.


1.) 12 Feb 2018 13:47:14
how did your swim go Aus? How far was it?

2.) 12 Feb 2018 22:56:56
Its a long jetty alf. Ha ha. From beach. Round jetty to beach finish is 3.7km. Bit choppy for a while. First go at it. 1 hr 22 min. Well chuffed with the time. Would jave been happy with 1 hr 45 lol.

3.) 13 Feb 2018 08:49:13
Quicker than it takes lassy to get from box to box



09 Feb 2018 00:41:59
Think lassoga is a luxury we can't afford atm. For the amount of touches he has during a match and the little he does with them i'd use him as a last 15min sub at best. Hoping new boy shines with roofe or eukaba and we don't have to use lassoga at all. Way over rated.


1.) 09 Feb 2018 07:28:52
Perhaps Hecky will be able to get more out of him. I believe Lasogga could be a player if he starts to use his size to bully defenders a bit more - that's what i would be looking to coach into him. Roberts unlikely to start based on the press conference comments yesterday but could be on the bench. Hecky has been an admirer of Roberts so I daresay he has a few ideas of how he would like to play him which could be very tasty.

2.) 09 Feb 2018 07:39:23
He is Aus, maybe PH can get something out of him TC couldn't, afraid he's our 'best' option till Ekuban is fully fit.

3.) 10 Feb 2018 13:44:23
Good post as usual Aus. Your normal service has resumed.

4.) 10 Feb 2018 15:25:17
One of his better games today. Led the line well. Won a few headers for once, and held the ball up well. Great finish for our goal after great work from Pablo.



07 Feb 2018 00:26:58
Im in the, give the guy a chance camp. He has come in at a difficult time. i'd like at least a point from sheffield, but he has a seriously diminished squad. Hoping he goes for a bit of pace up front. Give tyler a chance. Rest alioski for dallas. Drops lassoga. Put eukaba back in if fit. can't really judge him at least until he has pontus, berahdi and saiz back.

In the meantime i'm hoping he has a good look at potential benchers from u23s. Our defense is short of a picnic atm so best form of defense is attack. Hard fast constant flows of attack. Over to you pauly! In regards to leeds comments when he was a lad. Grow up boys. Sticks and stones He will be chuffed to be given this opp and will work his socks off.

Oh and it worked last time so, ORTA OUT!


1.) 07 Feb 2018 01:12:43
Any post that says Orta OUT gets a thumbs up from me!

2.) 07 Feb 2018 02:50:48
I've been having a wee think. Not usual for me, I know, but nevertheless. Let's say, for argument's sake, that we have a quick and pronounced turnaround in fortune. Does that mean that our players are the goods and Orta was right all along and his vision was only sullied by TC's ineptitude. Don't know. I'm not saying this is the case but it is an interesting thought.

3.) 07 Feb 2018 06:07:47
If pauly turns our fortunes round using a lot of ortas signinings then humble pie mabe on the menu. But me thinks not!

4.) 07 Feb 2018 06:17:27
I'm inclined to agree with you, Ausman. Still, food for thought.

5.) 07 Feb 2018 08:17:15
Interesting Kiwi i like your thinking. Fans have been getting there backs up a lot with orta and maybe orta is sticking by his recruitment in saying well it sthe manager who isn't playing them right so he has to go. Really could see a 442 this weekend, and praying or grot to come good, grot and roberts could be lethal in a few years, just hope they both get used. i'm also sick of the 4231 now i think its boring and expected from leeds, let's mix it up, a 433 with an attaching midfielder maybe, perhaps you coudl have forshaw and vieira sitting with phillips supporting the striker, to wide men hugging the touchline, dallas was excellent in that second half, really impressed me he's something we've missed. hernandez cutting in from the left and whipping balls in. i'm really optimistic about this team again. I was always on the TC in bandwagon and keeping him for the season but I went to ER on saturday, and hull on tuesday, and both performances showed no clinical edge that we've had when saiz was available, and a lot fo what monk showed last year with wood up top. Since losing kyle bartley, jansson has gone quiet and hasn't had as good of a season, but that doesn't mean he can't turn it maybe a brutal manager is what we need. This man knows leeds and knows what they're about having had such a close link with them as a barnsley fan, manager, player, wednesday player, and seeing them in the championship for so long, i don't think you could have hired anybody more relevant that's got years ahead of him. The 18 month contract thing, i think that's a statement from him to say, if i can't get you up by then, ill go i'm not right for this, bt give me a full season in charge with my own recruits ill show you what i can do. I like this bloke, and i think he just may be a miracle.

6.) 07 Feb 2018 09:18:20
The problem with 442 or 433 is the midfield battle - with only 3 or 4 in there we can lose the battle and that is vital to the whole game. therefore 5 in the middle makes sense so that we can supply the forwards and help the defence. with that in mind and our depleted squad to consider I would be tempted (as another poster said yesterday i think) to play a 3-5-2. De Bock on the left side, Pennington in the middle and Anita on the right. Utilise Dallas as wing back on the left and Alioski on the right. middle three of Hernandez, Forshaw and Viera in the middle and a front two of any combination of Roberts, Roofe or Lasogga.

7.) 07 Feb 2018 09:19:21
Didn't Jansson get player of the month last month Samo? Return to form i would say?

8.) 07 Feb 2018 10:24:23
The 352 sounds appealing and i think jansson may be back fit so would be a better option than anita. Alioski works hard to track back, and I'd probably play him like you say, question is, where does this formation leave berardi, ayling, saiz, cooper, ekuban, when all fit and not suspended, suppose it enables us to have a really good bench. If i were to play a 352, and considering this a championship team again next season, i'd have wied, (think paul will bring in someone like bentley from brentford) jansson, ayling, berardi, dallas and de bock as wing backs, 2 holding being vieira and forshaw, hernandez as number 10, then saiz and roberts up top. However, i think the 3421 would better suit us, with hernandez, saiz, and roberts as the front 3, with dallas and de bock on the wings. I think alf got POTM in december yes alf but everyone knows he was a better overall player last year, 1 of 2 for the team of the season from leeds last year, bamba is more likely to get it than jansson this year as horrible as that is to say

9.) 07 Feb 2018 13:06:11
Jansson for Anita for sure, Saiz for Hernandez, Ekuban for Lasogga and the rest can play for their places with those in form keeping their spot. although with everyone fit I would go to a narrow 4-2-3-1 myself with the 3 pushing forward and looking to score goals and provide chances for Ekuban.



16 Jan 2018 00:46:54
Relax, all the posters on here that said there is always one team that comes from nowhere into the play offs and thought it could be us! Its not. Its fulham! Think we will be the team that flirts with top 6 the entire season and then misses out in last week. Wait. Wasnt that last season? As my previous post two days ago. Nothing changes! Fed up and bored of it. Hate losing. Hate under achieving. We just seem time and time again to get owners with the right intentions but not the knowledge needed to come good on them.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 04:39:10
Another good post. What's going on with you Aussie and all these excellent contributions? Dosage must be spot on finally.

{Ed001's Note - maybe he has been hacked?}

2.) 16 Jan 2018 05:51:39
Funny guys. Funny.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 07:13:11
Frustrates the life out of me Aus, we have been in similar positions to this before, notably the decent team Grayson had, last season also, with 2/3 quality signings we could really give it a good go, we have bought way too much quantity over quality, I have spent a fortune travelling to and from All the home and away games, and I will carry on doing it, I would however like us to show some ambition over the next fortnight and at least try to get the players to take us into the top 6.it's 15-16 months since we knew Taylor was going and we only just got a left back, let's hope it's not 15-16 months till we replace wood!

4.) 16 Jan 2018 13:12:23
Oh dear george and ed. 4 down. Maybe my reputation precedes me?



09 Jan 2018 01:27:04
It seems de bock might be our first, first teamer signing of the window. Its good we have bought a left back but sooo much more important to get striker. Midfielder and goal keeper. let's hope de bock is the first of the quartet. And please make 2 of the next 3 british experienced champ or ex prem performers. No more punts at cheap foreign mediocricy.


1.) 09 Jan 2018 03:32:11
Ausman This is your best post ever!

2.) 09 Jan 2018 03:58:34
Youve made me go all unnecessary george. i'm honoured to have your approval. Just goes to show you. I, unlike most of our squad, do not settle for second rate rubbish, but continuously seek improvement!

3.) 09 Jan 2018 11:05:47
Does Mrs aus know that?

So much is wrong at the moment. I don't know what has happened. There is a possibility all will come good and next year will surprise us all. But prob going to be the reverse and i can see us battling the bottom rather than top of the league. We are very lucky we have 50 points because that should be enough to stay safe this year. Everything is a mess. The owner seems more and more not to unserstand business or football. The last few weeks has seen a lot of dribble come out his mouth. I don't think he has any money left. I think he is angry because his so called plan has failed almost as soon as it started. Then there is orta? Why he still here? Then there is 90% of the players he has bought. Then there is the current squad who have gone from average to appalling in 3 months. There really isn't anybody that is playing well at the moment. they've given up because it just dosent matter to them anymore. Still like the wages though. Then there is the manager. Sheff wed was the first game i started to judge him on. We should have won that but didnt. Nothing against the bloke but it seems he has bought his barnsley mentality with him. I wish him well and i want him to come good but begining to doubt he has the talent. Another cheap option by radz looking like he is in above his head. The whole club has fallen apart. From top to bottom. And i'm not sure he can fix it. I had every faith in radz but i may have been wrong.


1.) 18 Mar 2018 08:51:54
Ausman well said

2.) 18 Mar 2018 11:23:34
Good post Ausman.



17 Mar 2018 14:31:57
Great. 1 up front and he has played about 7-8 and scored errrrr 0. Never a champ striker let alone prem standard. Prove me wrong. Bag a hatrick.


1.) 17 Mar 2018 15:39:59
So far proving you right Aussie

2.) 17 Mar 2018 16:21:52
Jury’s still out on ekuban for me



15 Mar 2018 23:09:44
With radz saying he is worried we won't be able to compete financially next year, that says to me that he has spent on transfers. That, the ones for the future are the ones that are supposed to come good in the 5 yr plan. Bit of a worry. Think janson ( no big loss ) and saiz will need to be sold to fund 4-5 newbees. I am begining to get a bit worried about radz. He has done a lot of good but now everytime he opens his mouth it says to me he dosent know football and is sinking fast.


1.) 16 Mar 2018 08:43:17
Janson and siaz no big loss? Think you need to cover your swede up aus in the midday sun.

2.) 16 Mar 2018 09:43:49
Janson ain't that martyn. Spends a lot of time on butt or whingeing rather than just getting on with it. Plenty of better cd than him in champ. Saiz we would miss.

3.) 16 Mar 2018 11:20:23
Worse case scenario next year no money. Okay then let's see how good Orta really is. Play the kids. Try to keep Samu and Pontus, maybe bring in one name but promote from within. Starting with Pearce this weekend we seemingly have a few who are knocking on the door.

4.) 16 Mar 2018 13:08:49
we've certainly got enough in the youth ranks to be able to promote a few and still have an u-23 team

5.) 16 Mar 2018 14:29:00
You will be gutted when janson gone and your stood looking at Cooper. Be carefull what you wish for aus

6.) 16 Mar 2018 14:48:19
I didn't say cooper. Although he dosent tend to fall over at crosses. Dosent fair well in tackles but mans up at corners and crosses. Janson does neither. Wussy.

7.) 16 Mar 2018 15:17:08
You meen when he's not serving bans for hitting tackles ten mins late

8.) 16 Mar 2018 15:20:26
It's OK starting janson bashing but I remember when you all started bamba bashing but I bet you'd have him back now. If that doesn't tell you it's a bigger problem than a player problem then nothing will

9.) 16 Mar 2018 15:35:37
No to bamba for me
Cooper stays on his feet even if he kicks out. Not as talented as janson. But janson is a wuss. Scaredy cat. Falls over rhather than be counted. Moans at ref rather than take responsibilty and be a man.

10.) 16 Mar 2018 16:55:13
WHAT! Ausman mate, while I always like your posts surely to god you can’t be serious about Pontus! Martyn is spot on and for you to say he falls over and is a coward but then you support Siaz the spitter is beyond me mate! Siaz and Alioski are always in their backside and neither one can tackle and to put Pontus in the coward bracket is totally untrue.

11.) 16 Mar 2018 17:17:18
Pontus is a coward and if he and midfield did job props i wouldn't expect saiz tackiling. Unless nec. What planet u on?

12.) 16 Mar 2018 18:54:28
Pontus, no big loss? Wash your mouth out Aussie

13.) 16 Mar 2018 19:13:45
Calamity over pontus, that grog must be strong aus

14.) 16 Mar 2018 20:45:20
Cooper is a fair bigger liability not captain material sent off twice can only use his left foot squad player that's all.

15.) 16 Mar 2018 21:05:30
Ive seen Saiz and alioski put plenty of tackles in when playing. tracking back, battling back, and covering for other players! ? Surely others have seen that too?

16.) 16 Mar 2018 21:12:01
Obviously not the same planet you are on Ausman! Strange opinion but it is your opinion so I respect that!



15 Mar 2018 08:34:21
Spotted Mm at leeds training ground. Looks like he is playing the remainder of the season in goal. He can't come online cause he can't get the gloves off.


1.) 15 Mar 2018 09:58:17
Is he one for the future? We need more of those.

2.) 15 Mar 2018 11:34:30
Good one Ausie.

3.) 15 Mar 2018 18:27:51
Funny, I’ve heard a rumour that he’s a scout working under Orta. Orta told him that he’s got exactly what the youngsters are looking for, tash, shellsuit, Afro and drives around on a scooter. Said it makes him look like a modern man and down with the kids (or whatever the yoof say these days! ) 😜



13 Mar 2018 12:51:19
Can somebody clear something up for me. i'm confused. Is martyn a fan of heckingbottoms or not?


1.) 13 Mar 2018 13:05:51
I'll clear that one up aus. NO

2.) 13 Mar 2018 19:00:38
Can only give you the thumbs up Martyn, for honesty, and bluntness!

Yeah. I got to be honest. He was better when he shut up and got on with business. He has now got orta and has made some naive decisions expecting it to be easy to get out this league. Now seems to slag everyone else off to detract from his own inadequacies. Losing faith.

Think we shoulda got a better manager tbh But the shambles we call a team have given up and are just going through the numbers. He should play who he is keeping next year. And sin bin the rest in the u23s. No point in playing crap week in and out.
