    Morning all it seems Elland has lost his breakfast post so I will throw a couple of lines together to get started.

    Last night was the Premier of the Amazon Prime Documentary "Take Me Home" and a bit of red carpet and glam was on show. Some of the players wives looked delish, but come on lads what the hell were you players dressed up as. Everyone has to wear skinny jeans and white trainers or black trainers with huge white soles. Douglas yet again tried to outdo everyone including the ladies and wore a fkg brimmed hat. Must have thought he was Huck Finn. Apparently a good night for all who attended.

    Fast Eddy is in most papers today saying how much he loves the club, has to take his chances when presented, raves about the fans. Gary Neville also spoke about him and Leeds in glowing terms.

    Still seeing Leeds players being slaughtered on social media and to be frank some sickoes follow this club.

    Player reviews for the other night were all pretty much the same with the average at 6.5 as most were 7s including Kiko who I thought deserved an 8. White is still the best player so far from his 3 starts he has scored 8s in every game

    Fat Frank lost again <laugh><laugh>

    I’ve been a critic but thought Kiko was fine against forest and ok on Tuesday. He got quite a few nice height saves that you would expect any keeper to make, but he made them. Parried one back out rather than away from goal. Missed a cross.. but just the one I remember... not the 4 or 5 against brizzle. Not brilliant but not worthy of the panning he got from some.

    Morning all. Docs right about some sickoes on social media following the club. Easily sorted though, Ive the majority of them blocked now so don't have to read their bile about players, racism and the other stuff anymore. Don't think I can face watching that documentary until we've eventually been promoted, last seasons end is still far too raw for me personally

    Morning to all my wonderful fellow 606ers. Kiko IMO isn't a bad keeper, he plays the ball well out from the back, he makes some good saves. Like a lot of supporters I do get nervous when he comes out for crosses and when he parries shots. But unfortunately he plays in a position that you can't hide and unlike the outfield players who can get away with making a mistake or two, a goalie can't because they usually get punished.<ok>

    With the way we play and the high press, we leave Kiko exposed and he has to patrol a huge expanse of the pitch on his own. So because hes exposed a lot it scares the crap out of us. I have to say he is a fantastic stopper and the only thing I dont like is the way he comes out to punch. I just wish he would catch the ball and smash opposition all over to get the ball. His play with the ball at his feet is very good too. 5 decent saves the other night must give him confidence

    Don't think any modern day keeper and certainly the continental type, actually catch the ball anymore so Kikos not alone there. I guess its all about where you punch the ball to

    Going to be a waste of time me doing a loan watch this season as we only have 3 or 4 out on loan. I will of course keep an eye on them and keep you up to date. A couple who were on loan but now playing are worth a mention this week. Caleb Ekuban scored a screamer for his Turkish side last weekend. Back to goal hit and hope but flew in. Oliver Sarkic started his first game for his new club Burton Albion and made a goal in the first 9 minutes and played well up front. Be interesting to see how he fares as a striker in L1

    Good Morning TO Matt Doc etc from a cold Bardsey
    Kiko does make mistakes but Ray Clemence used to and he was considered a great keeper Gordon Banks never played well at ER
    Glad that we can give Klitch a new contract and I hope they do this sooner rather than later
    Who is this young French wonder kid who is supposed to want to join us Doc video if possible

    Being a kid the rules can be slightly different, but he will either have to wait until December or he may have refused to sign a new contract so becomes a free agent. Obviously Orta will be aware of him

    Orta really knows how to do his job if he's given the tools
