Leeds United's McDermott Says Size Matters

Poor old Father Brian. He is looking for positives. Desperately looking for positives. But the more he says, the more he sounds like his predecessor, Old Big Gob Warnock.

This time he was explaining that the game of football is all about how big you are and the two boxes. But no, he wasn't talking about a well endowed guy in a dreamy threesome!

Amazingly, according to Father Brian, what happens in the middle of the pitch is of little consequence, it's what happens in the final third that determines the outcome of football matches. Now there's a thing! Who would have thought it? It seems that goals decide games. What a shame Brian didn't receive that revelation before the window closed because he might then have prioritised the signing of a striker who can score goals!

As for the size thing, McDermott hasn't been checking out the players in the changing room, he's commenting on the failure of the referee to award Smith a penalty because he is six foot four. Now that is classic Warnock! What the hell has Smith's height got to do with a penalty award exactly?

Still, Father Brian reckons there are lots of positives to be taken from the game despite losing to a team that couldn't beat West Ham and lost to Hull. Let's not dwell on four defeats in five games and two goals in 450 minutes of football, Leeds competed against the might of Newcastle!

  1. The same Newcastle I've said I will bet you they Finnish above west ham but you won't even warrant my bet with a reply! Spineless!!! You have even ignored my numerous questions on how you think west ham will do at the weekend? Every weekend! You are so opinionated on all other things not concerning you but when you are challenged about your own club you go all quiet! Pathetic spam dangler, you really are!

  7. HF you have been sooooo quiet recently am quite impressed how you are so absolutely obsessed with the mighty whites we are the the most talked about club outside the PL - shame we cannot say that about WHFC although you are - "quite frankly, not sure how!" in the PL - soon you will come to your own demise back in the championship yet nobody will talk about WHFC at all - soon to be lost to oblivion - SHAME - MOT never mind there is alwaYS LUFC to support and I am 100% sure much more exciting than being a HF - you really are a knob and so are the rest of your boring cronies - ah blesss !!!

  8. Your still a twat but I think your right. I have been a Leeds fan for 50 years. We want to believe every time the smallest of positives happen. I think its early days but we are getting carried away (again). I think Brian can deliver but it will take time. Lets not put pressure on him. He will deliver. MOT

  12. Read this Slowly and repeat continuously until mammy says it's bedtime!
    "Neil Warnock has nothing to do with Leeds United anymore, he has retired from the game, my Warnock obsession is silly and I must learn to control it."

    1. I think HF is treating RASoothayer with the respect RAS deserves,
      I actually think RAS rarely attends a match. But looking at him, one can tell he enjoys a bucket of KF quite regularly.....

    1. Rob seems to have developed an unhealthy obsession doesn't he? All very flattering from where I am standing. Who would think it, a West Ham fan worthy of an article on a Leeds United site! I thought our club meant nothing to you Leeds fans! Dear me, never mind the club, Leeds fans are reduced to writing articles about individual Hammers fans!

    2. Grow some balls and answer my questions!

    3. And what's with your unhealthy obsession with Leeds?

    4. But you're not a Hammers fan, you're a Troll

  24. At least I don't use various unlikely aliases to comment on your site as you do on mine to say how wonderful HF is without (you hope) coming out of the closet as HF. O, what a tangled web you weave...

    1. LOL On my word of honour Rob, I have never done anything of the sort. May West Ham be relegated and Leeds take our place in the Prem, I am innocent of that charge. And believe me, as a superstitious person, I would not say that if I wasn't telling the truth!

      Delete
    2. As a superstitious person you should know what goes around comes around then! You poke a dog with a stick so many times sooner or later it will bite back! Not me personally because I arnt botherd about fighting but you might piss off the wrong person one day and get a royal slap for your efforts! It is all borderline childish really tho just trying to wind people most of the time, just do the posts without the snide remarks, p.s win? Lose? Draw? This weekend for west ham? And win? Lose? Draw? For Leeds?

    3. so who are you? why the need to hide?

      Delete
    4. What word of honour would that be then? The word of a racist?, the word of a homophobe? As for "May West Ham be relegated and Leeds take our place in the Prem", your only wishing for the team you don't support to be relegated and the team you obviously do support to go up
      MOT

      BTW - You should learn from Rob, he's a proper exponent of modern prose!!!

    5. Four questions:

      1) Why did "Handsome" Atkinson feel the need to write that article in the first place?
      2) Why did "handsome Atkinson feel the need to reply to my comment on here?
      3) How often is "handsome" Atkinson visiting this site to know, within the hour that I had commented on his article? (Which, by the way, I was unaware of until Leeds fans who claim to hate this site informed me by visiting this site!)
      4. If you guys hate the site as much as you claim, why do you keep coming back?

      Delete
    6. Anonymous 14:39 says why the need to hide! Ha ha priceless!
