Think they said all the new signings have an option

No doubt it will be taken up and then sold at the first opportunity!

Keeps playing well and he wont be here long

Thank god! Defo! Has a Peterborough sale written all over it. Even more of a reason to just for for it next season and get out of this shitty league, but under Clem I can't see that happening

Enjoyed the match on I Follow, especially the second half. The long diagonal passes tactics, and maintaining possession much better in the second half, was encouraging for the future.

So what is it... BBC Sport have McGurk down as 'on loan' after last nights game, whilst the club confirmed he was on a permanent when signed Hmmm

I only ever enjoy wins "in isolation" as I don't enjoy losses in the same way. Have never said otherwise. The fact is that many don't and that's up to them. It's a given that even the top teams are not great and I've also never said we are a good side, but anyone who doesn't see in improvement on Flynn's latter days is not really paying attention in my opinion.Don't think I've ever said I don't want Town to do better,so I too agree with the majority of Bamboo's post but as he was quoting my post, I don't think I was wrong in assuming the Clem comment was inferring that I was of that ilk. If I was,apologies.


I concur to a large degree, honest!

Gav's approach is the same as his last two stints, it's a basic for of football, focus on the forwards, get it to them more quickly.  L2 is indeed a League of not great teams, even the ones at the top, so you put your footballing talent near the other teams goal and get it to them.

Results and performances are much better than under Flynn - Flynn could point out he didn't have this many forward players to choose from I guess.

Overall though, which is what some may take from my comments, is that we still do not look like a promotion chasing squad.  I also worry with Gav for the longer term - he, and his approach, seem like it could gradually slide.  There is just something about his style that suggests that if gets bad it could be very bad.  That's an inkling mind.  The other issue, which remains unresolved, is the infrastructure of the club remains fucked.  So Gav getting a few better performances is not underpinned by actions being take on purpose and with the long term in mind.  For every McGurk we happen across, we will get a Devoy still, in fact, more Devoy's than McGurcks.  That is just one example.

I personally hope that Mansfield, Stockport & Wrexham go just to get rid of them.
Nah, canít see all three of them getting relegated.

Sutton and Grimsby will have something to play for. Most of the others, not so much!

Permy until the end of the season.   Then we sell him back to Leeds for £1 Smiley

We'd be brain dead to announce permy if it wasn't. We were of course under embargo for loan fees, etc.

Stockport at the CG were the only side that stood out to me this season.
Same for me but in the away game at the weekend they showed little quality which surprised me. Maybe 1 or 2 players like Hippolyte for instance looked decent quality, even Andy Parson up front was shit.

The league is so so poor this year for consostancy anyway.

Yes dont mind Grimsby, decent set of fans in the main and travel in numbers well in recent years too. I will shed no tear if FGR fall out of the league.

While RHM was electric last night and had the beating of his man, we know that next game he plays if he is against a defender that is not afraid to put his foot in and man handle him then he will disappear sadly, with that being said he should have had a hat trick last night and was playing in the the right position at time on the shoulder of his man.

Let's hope we can find our best starting XI rather than the constant shuffling.

I hope this can be positive moving forward after a decent win if it is the difference between us wining / drawing the rest of our games so Gav get's the job I would much rather we lose to ensure he does not get it -  I really don't see he is the right person to take us forward and mould us into a team that can actually challenge for promotion.  You just get the feeling Clem is looking for a reason to give him the job.

Thing is, you canít argue with results. If we pick up another 5 or 6 wins this season itíd be churlish not let him have a go. He should have an assistant though.

Notice be batted away the question about players contracts in his pre match presser.

All irrelevant when Bergkamp takes over!

Yorkshire Evening Post

But the midfielder has now ended two and a half years with the Whites by joining Swindon who sit 14th in the League Two table, seven points off the play-offs.

A statement from Leeds United read: "Everyone at Leeds United would like to wish Sean the best of luck at Swindon Town and throughout the rest of his career."
