Eintract Frankfurt

Thought they looked pretty good tonight. Good support as well in and outside the ground.

Never been to a game in Germany but wouldn't mind the experience - though that would make me one of those flippin' tourist football fans..........I could even top a trip off with a half and half scarve!

Just a thought................

I see Kenny Shiels the Northern Ireland manager of the womens team probably unwisely suggested that women are more emotional when they concede a goal which leads to them conceding more goals.

It made me wonder what he would say or make of our men's first team then because at one stage we were conceding roughly every 6-8 minutes on Saturday!

At the risk of getting shouted down for daring to highlight a manager of another team, I have to say thus far I have been impressed with him - the way he goes about the job - no histrionics or noise, just quietly getting on with the job and the way he has set up the team to be effective and efficient. I can quite see them beating Chelsea in the semi.

Conor Gallagher is a hell of a player as well. He seems to have endless energy and determination.

My take on the Leeds Utd game
at 11:15 3 Apr 2022

I have to admit, I found this an enjoyable entertaining game to watch, which is not the same as saying that it was full of quality and control. At times it was a 100 miles per hour frenetic stuff and virtually the whole game was end to end where the result could have gone either way but a draw at the end felt about right.

For the most part I felt that Leeds shaded the first half with the bulk of the chances though the officials did seem to favour the home side. There were at least 2 clear moments that we should have had a free kick and arguably the failure to give a free kick for Broja ultimately lead to the opening goal though we had time to defend it better than we did before the final outcome.

We had a chance to equalise not long after that and again our tame shots at goal throughout the game meant that their goalkeeper was not troubled too much. Quite why our shots persist to be like back passes and almost inevitably aimed direct at the opposing keeper is beyond me. Sometimes if they just hit a shot with a force it may force a save that could rebound or just go in.

The 2nd half I felt we were on the whole the better team but Leeds were always a threat when going forward. As usual JWP got his chance and took in a way only he seems to know how. We could have gone ahead shortly after that.

It was entertaining stuff with both sides going forward with purpose but never giving up. I don't think anyone played badly yesterday. More importantly we looked up for it and willing to get stuck into a battle. Stand outs again were Kyle Walker Peters, JWP, Che Adams and at times Diallo - though he is inconsistent - some good passes but quite weak in the tackle. Livramento worked hard though his final ball at times needs to improve. Our defence looked pretty solid and did a professional job generally and Forster pulled off a couple of good saves.

It wasn't a perfect display by any means but I felt that there were 2 teams that went for it - as you would have expected with Leeds. I don't like their ground, the view is not great and the their fans are pretty unlikeable but for me it was easy to get to and I came away feeling that I had had an enjoyable afternoon's entertainment. I just wish we were more of a force in front of goal because some of the build up is excellent and deserves a better outcome.
