  1. There's literally no downside to betting on us losing. We're the favourites so you'll get good odds. If we win, you won't care that you've lost £10/£20 or whatever and if we lose, you'll be just as upset but at least you'll have some extra money.
  2. Isn't it the other way round? Swear people always used to grown whenever we played in claret shorts because we tended to do worse in them.
  3. In the new Wembley, just the one - the 2015 semi-final. Our record there is pretty **** awful though: 2-1 defeat to Man United in LC final 3-0 defeat to Chelsea in FA Cup semi-final 2-1 victory over Liverpool in FA Cup semi-final 4-0 defeat to Arsenal in FA Cup final 1-0 defeat to Fulham in play-off final. Or to put it another way, in the three finals we've had there, we've conceded 7 goals and scored one, and that was a penalty. On the other hand, this is the first time we've actually been favourites at the new Wembley. Personally I'm not very confident, but then again I was confident against West Brom, and I wasn't confident in most of the games we won during our winning streak.

    I wasn't referring to anything in the deal, just saying, it'd be pretty much guaranteed if we do go up because we'll have the finances and he loves it here.
  5. I agree totally about us not being ready. Obviously I would rather us have won, but I think most of us here knew that we'd have had to get rid of Bruce at some point in the season even in (or especially in) the Premier League. Our squad was also weaker. We really have to take this chance now.

    If we go up he's 100% signing anyway.
  7. We seem to have history with this. Remember the whole Kozak broken leg debacle?
  8. What exactly are you basing this on?
  9. Haha I swear this wasn't me!
  10. Yeah, our Wembley record since the 2000 final has just been horrendous, aside from that Liverpool semi-final. Don't forget we got turned over by Chelsea 3-0 in 2010 as well. We just bottle it basically every time. Although as I said, we've always been the underdogs in these games.
  11. Am I right in thinking this is the first time since the 2000 FA Cup semi-final that we've gone to Wembley as favourites?
  12. While Derby are certainly a less difficult tie than Leeds on paper, do you really think the difference is that drastic? I would've put it more at 40% up to 60%.
  13. Really hope we can put our Wembley final curse to bed this year.
  14. No, absolutely not. They're cheating scum.
  15. Jesus Christ how mentally fragile are Leeds?
