Leeds should feel robbed. The 'officials' have let them down massively. They outplayed Arsenal and Arse have got away with one tonight. I've also realised what a bunch of cnuts are in that team.
Inclined to agree. They (Leeds) played much better football, especially in the first half. Xhaka not getting booked early on (and then potentially sent off) was a joke, as was the Lacazette kick going unpunished.

For me it really felt like Leeds just lacked that element of cynicism, petulance and general loathsomeness that a PL team will always have in spades.

The entire Arsenal team are so unlikable, even more so than usual. Admittedly a big fan of Arteta though, just wish he wasn't at that shite club and was managing abroad so I could get behind him a bit more.

Is this likely to cause problems for us or Wolves?

Edit: FFS seems so. Last thing either side need at the moment!

Yes unless they play it next week. Could be good for us to get a break to be honest if we beat Wolves.

Can't play next week. Watford play Villa in the PL. It's a real cluster feck of a situation as it'll most likely now have to be played on FA Cup 4th round day which has a knock on effect on United/Wolves who may have to forgo part of their winter break in order to fulfill the 4th round tie while juggling the Europa League round of 32 stages as well.

Still the rest could do us well ahead of the City semi final if we beat Wolves. Doubt it will help us enough to beat them.
They could still put it in with 2 days between games. Although they will probably just move it forward.

As neither Ole or Nuno wanted a replay it’s a shame they couldn’t have had an arm wrestling contest to settle the tie, best of three maybe.

Nuno is a fecking unit, Ole wouldn't stand a chance.

”The FA released a statement confirming the postponed fixture will take place on January 23. The winner of the tie will then host either Wolves or United three days later on January 26.”

Mourinho saying they're down to the bare bones.:lol:

8 full internationals and the luxury of Son and Dele on the bench.

Just terrible keeping, sick of teams thinking they’re good & passing it around the back when it was never on at that point. ruining a game in under 2 mins. Awful

Sanchez distribution.:houllier:

Should've been 1-1 but good save from Gazziniga.

Decent game this.

I know Spurs are 2 up but Sanchez is a disaster, how have Boro not scored from one of his errors, they seem to assume still that he'll deal with the high ball competently.
