Good results for Leeds last night, got the 3 points and Norwich/Sheffield Utd drew. Gonna be top heading into Feb, starting to get nervous.

Massive, win and we are 6 points clear at the top.
Read an interesting stat today that we are 12-0-0 when scoring first, 5-6-6 when conceding first.
Interesting that you concede more than you score first. I wouldn’t have suspected that from a team up the top.

There was some cracking goals in the Championship this weekend. Sears from Ipswich hit a cracker and the Rotherham goal was stunning as well.

So Swansea pulled the plug on the transfer of Dan James at the 11th hour after he had agreed to terms with Leeds, done the medical and shot the welcome video in Leeds gear.

Any word as to why?
Haven’t heard why. Bloody strange though. Swansea wanted 1.5 mil pounds for a loan til the end of season then the option to buy, which we agreed to. He gets to the club around 5pm, does his medical/video/photo shoot and just sits there until 11pm, which during that time Swansea just ceased communication.

Swansea Owner apparently agreed to the transfer but some board member apparently did not. Same with Fer going to Villa. They just stopped responding to Leeds in the last 3 hours while James sat at Elland Road.

Not great. We have lost 4 out of our 6 and conceded 12 goals. Still 10 points clear of 7th but need to turn it around pretty quickly.

I actually think Leeds might be in trouble - is this the beginning of the collapse Bielsa teams are known for?

Pretty terrible here from Tyrone Mings.

There is a picture floating about of the damages to Nelson Oliveira's face. Don't want to post it though.

He did a similar thing to Ibrahimovic too in the past.

Yeh the photo is pretty full on, again claims it was an ‘accident’.
