Leeds are top! Horray so what if they've only played 2.
I bet you wish the season was ended now!
lol its uefa for you my son!
or we need to do is stay there for another 36 games shouldn't be that hard. Cough. But unless an English team wins the champions league which I doubt. Your'e probaly right.
what a cracking goal from Bow.
Keane got goal of the week last week, Bow gets it this week. Super Leeds!
Top o the League.
Screw Leeds and Screw the EPL
Oh, I am sorry,
The BarclayCard EPL
By the way read the Keene book when it comes out.
Its everything there is to hate about the EPL in one place.
The back flick from Kewell was super nice.
What has Alan Smith done in his career to get so many starts over Robbie Keane? Don't get me wrong, I think Smithy is a great player but I think Robbie is a better player. I read somewhere, I think www.football365.com that Keane is thinking about quitting. I say start Robbie, but what do I know, I'm only an American.
Smith is better than you think, just like Fowler is better than lots of people give him credit for.
Smith will never leave Leeds. He's a local boy and is adored by the supporters. Smith has been a Leeds supporter his whole life.
has bags of energy and will fight for every ball. He was my MOTM against WBA as well. What a class player.
Plus, who would model the kits for Leeds United?
me! I can also model guinness
I think Smith is a great player but why not at least give a couple of starts to Robbie and see how they do.
Is there anyplace where I would be able to see a video of bower's shot? Besides on TV....I don't have a dish or anything.
Not worth bothering about really, Kewell stepped on the ball and it came out behind him and luckily it went to the thug sorry Bowyer. He gave a sort of scoop shot and despite that it went in over the goalie.
Even a blind pig roots up an acorn now and then
IMO neither Smith nor Keane are better than Fowler.
I think your right. Didn't he have some sort of a record in the EPL? I think it was the fastest hat-trick or something like that. I don't know if it still stands though, all I can remember is that it was against Arsenal.
Kudos to Leeds! Ive been impressed with their play especially offensively. One noticeable difference is that they seem to play the ball instead of the man. Now if they could give some Xanax to Smith they might stay in the top.
Yes he does. He scored a hat-trick against Arsenal in a mere 4 minutes and 33 seconds. A record that I say will not be broken.
And this was scored against David Seaman, Tony Adams, and the famous Arsenal back line.
It was 1995, I think. Fowler went on to score 100 goals for Liverpool in just 167 matches. Faster than Rush, faster than Owen, faster than Ole Gunnar got his 100 for United.
His Anfield debut was also record setting. FIVE goals for the 18 year old in a cup tie vs. Fulham. He then was injured for Euro 96 and France 98. He was Michael Owen (an extremely dangerous young player) before Michael Was. On my "Fowler's Hot 100" video, the announcers repeatedly call him "the boy Wonder."
I discovered the EPL around the time Fowler set this record, and the genius that was a young Robbie Fowler was the #1 reason that I became a Liverpool supporter. Fantastic stuff in his first 100.
He's the best first or second touch finisher I've ever seen, and I'm old enough to have gone to NASL games when I was a kid.
Leeds are not top
How about them mackems.....oops, wrong header...he he he he he he
Someone forgot to get the message to Jason McAteer & Sunderland. It appears the Gooners are top.
That bloody Robbie Fowler...
I used to dread playing Liverpool, largely because that beggar Fowler always seemed to score against us.
I was delighted when he went to Leeds, and what do you know, we at last win at Anfield, and knock Liverpool out of the Cup.
Of course, he then scored when we went to Elland Road.
He seems to have gone right off the boil though, and I don't know why. Thought the Leeds move might wake him up again, but it seems not. Any Fowler-followers have an idea why?
no more keane for you it appears lads... good luck with that
Re: That bloody Robbie Fowler...
Fowler is an Arsenal killer, much like Owen is to Newcastle. 2 hat-tricks, maybe three. At one point he was, I think, at 12 goals in 10 games against them (possible vice-versa).
I don't know what's gotten Robbie these days. Clearly English club's defenses are becoming more European, thus having much more tighter marking, and that would certainly have something to do with it.
I would love to see him regain his old form. If you watch the Fowler Hot 100 video, you will be absolutely blown away. Incredible accuracy, making goals out of nothing, scoring at the right moments, everything every team in the world wants out of a striker. He does it and makes it look it effortless.
He's my footballing hero.
Leeds are definately NOT on top....!!!!
