    She's normally a pretty good pundit on the radio, at least as a co-commentator, probably knows how to rile what is the second or third tetchiest fanbase in the country.

    She makes a fair enough (as in, perhaps not true but surely not ridiculous) point and they've engaged in a bit of (shit) banter. What's the issue?

    EDIT: The chairman is actually the one who has had a mare here. "I consider that comment completely unnecessary and disrespectful to our Club" - alright, mate.

    You would normally come down on the get over it love side of things, but lol at a club seething about tiny bits of punditry. Get back to the lower divisions if you're going to carry on like that.

    Football fandom (at least online) has now moved on to thousands of people genuinely believing that 'the establishment' is out to get their club, and it's only amplified as you move further down the divisions.

    Leeds have been remarkably petty on Twitter for the last few years, so this is nothing new. I'm sure I read something that the social media manager at Leeds keeps a list of people, clubs, pundits, etc. who have said something critical so he can bring it out whenever they win against their team. Incredibly small-time.

    Isn't being 'incredibly small time' essentially what twitter is for?

    The sort of comment she's come out with is in the same bracket as that caffeine idiot and Waff and his constant PED shit. It ought to be challenged as it sews seeds even if that is not the intention by the pundit.

    When they went back for a go at Pizza Hut (lol) after promotion the Premier League should have put them on a final warning.

    How is her comment even that bad? I think she's wrong as Leeds would have won the title without the break, but the fact of the matter is that Bielsa's teams don't historically finish seasons well. They ended up taking 22 points from the final 9 games after the break, so it's not beyond the realms of punditry to link the two and say the break helped the team recuperate and regain fitness and push on after they returned.

    Most of Twitter is undoubtedly petty and shit, but it's a bit fucking weird for a Premier League club to be as petty and unfunny as they are on social media.

    If the quotes are accurate she said "I actually think they got promoted because of Covid" and no matter how you go on to try to qualify that it's a pretty daft thing to say for a number of reasons, not least the idea that a global health disaster would be viewed through the prism of who it may or may not have advantaged in the world of professional football.

    I understand you can make a case for what she's said, I just think there are probably more significant reasons to steer clear of saying such a thing.

    Santos coming out and saying Ďactually Messi didnít break Peleís record because weíve been through the archives and found another 448 goals he scoredí might be the most pathetically small time thing Iíve ever heard.

    The Leeds account's actions are about 'reach' or engagement stats or whatever, nothing more. Likes above replacement.

    And also serves to highlight the pointlessness of finding ever more imaginary records for Messi to break.

    Thiago back in the squad for Liverpool tonight.

    Should have probably just signed him in January for half the money.

    He may have broke the league record for passes in his first 45 minutes but I fear he lacks the goal contribution to really be top-tier.

    It's kind of terrifying at least six of our first team wound up with Covid. Allan's so knackered he's back in France recovering. Dummett and Hendrick are on the sick list at the minute. I give us no chance tonight but at least Wilson's back and Shelvey might be available to launch a hopeful long ball somewhere near him.

    The only thing breaking is my heart, having to watch Nat Phillips and James Milner occupy the same side of the pitch. Salah and TAA may as well have a lie down.

    The 7-0 aside I donít think our front 3 has played well together all season. All of them hopeless so far tonight. Klopp is becoming incredibly reserved with his substitutions too. The game is crying out for a change in midfield.

    Something needs to be done with Salah he is far too greedy at times. It genuinely seems like he never wants to pass to Mane either.

    There is a massive issue with the midfield as well. The balance is all off since Fabinho has been shunted to centre-half.

    Big doubts over his goal contribution potential but gave us the solidity to secure our top spot

    Let's not kid around, the lad's genius was clear in his first 15 minutes for about 3 months, they fucking collapsed at the sight of him nevermind some of those passes (and headers). We'll sign a CB and play with 11 players for rest of season too.

    Fucking bedwetters doubting Salah and Mane

    We're so shit right now.

    The front 3 are fine, they have off days but until Jota's back there's nothing much to do about it. But the midfield is really baffling. For being a brilliant manager Klopp is god-awful at making substitutions too.

    Thiago is fantastic.

    Surely a small sample size didn't lead people to dream up elaborate narratives and reasonings.
