    Well quite clearly we arent the "best team in the league",if so we would be in 1st place instead of 15th !!,we are in good form and moved out of relegation trouble which is great but this post is either a #### take or totally over the top
    If you go by the last 7 games then we're top.

      Whoopie! That must mean we are the best team in the league!! Sure other teams had good form and been top of the 7 games only league. This thread quite rightly is taking the P out of the moaners coz they go over the top with their comments. But is also shown how over the top some are when we start winning. All of sudden best team in the league. Things are looking good at the moment but home games against Burton, Cardiff, Barnsley and Rotherham are games we should be favourites against. Our away form is looking much more solid too. Leeds away was good result. Let's enjoy but not get carried away how amazing we are. Apart from Leeds the only last real big test was Hudds and we got turned over.

        No no no no no.

        Not taking the #### out of particular moaners on this board. No. Lets not descend into another one of these threads of name calling and he said she said. I've moaned a fair bit about things, so, kinda happy to just be happy for a bit.

        More a comment on the necessity and seemingly easy manner to which most of society find ways to get upset. Moaning is far easier than being positive.

        I don't really think we are the best team in the league, but we are, infact, the greatest team, the world has ever seen.

                i'll give you one thing

                this

                idrissa Sylla - 8
                Conor Washington - 7
                Yeni Ngbakoto - 4
                Matt Smith - 4
                Tjaronn Chery - 4
                Sebastian Polter - 4
                Nedum Onuoha - 3
                Sandro - 3
                Pawel Wszolek - 3
                Luke Freeman - 2
                Steven Caulker - 2
                Joel Lynch - 1
                Jake Bidwell - 1
                Jamie Mackie - 1
                Ryan Manning - 1
                Kazenga LuaLua - 1
                Massimo Luongo - 1

                50 goals all season and 9 of those came in 2 games!

                to those saying we don't need anything more - we need more goals from midfield - to do anything in this league at least 3 of your squad need to be in double figures preferably one reaching 20+

                who in midfield on that list can do that? Freeman may get double figures given a full season.

                  3 People need to get double figures? We have what... 8 Games left? 2 players are very close to double figures, one of them only started scoring regularly half way through the season... The other has had such a stop start season... we've just signed Freeman and he missed matches... Smith has just come in and he'll get plenty of goals. Yeni's finally over the hump at the start of the season... Wszolek will get more regular football... Luongo finally scored his first... There's goals in this side, we're just starting to unlock them.

                      This. Heading in the right direction, sure. Which is really welcome. The January window was huge for us. Anyone want Drossball Jimmy back? But we're still far from being a finished product. Gotta keep it up. And continue improving. And identify our strongest team. Thankfully Ollie and the lads aren't complaisant. Unlike some on here....

                        indeed but by double figures not 12 or so. goals have been a problem and scoring 5 against a woeful rotherham defence should not cover the fact that we do not score enough goals. Our successful seasons have coincided with someone from midfield chipping in with goals. Our top scorer is 34th on the list of Top scorers in the championship.
                        yes hopefully there is goals in this squad. and Holloway has released the shackles after the ultra defensive tactics of JFH. so heres hoping!

                          Leeds first game of the season was the only time before Saturday we scored more than two goals at home. Having won four home games all season, we've now won four in a row, making it eight all season. All very, very welcome and encouraging, but indicative of impressive improvement, not, surely, a sustainable excellence. Ollie hasn't released the shackles off Jimmy's s hit squad; he's improved that squad no end.

                            Would our current strongest line up be able to beat our 2010 team, assuming everyone was at their best? That was some team we had...pace, power, creativity, grit...

                            Kenny
                            Walker Connelly Gorkks Hill
                            Derry Faurlin
                            Routledge Tarbs Buzsacky
                            HH

                              I honestly believe this squad wont be far behind it, especially if we can get a player like ravel on form!

                                Brilliant question!

                                Hard to compare as a different formation, but this is my feeling based on comparing the most similar players we have.

                                Kenny vs Smithies = Smithies
                                Walker vs Furlong = Walker
                                Connelly vs Ned = Karl
                                Gorkks vs Lynch = Lynch
                                Hill vs Bidwell = Draw
                                Derry vs Hall = Hall
                                Faurlin vs Luongo = Draw (asked a month ago Faurlin walks it, but maybe Mass is coming good?)
                                Routledge vs Pav = Draw
                                Tarbs vs No one really in the team to compare Rav doesn't count
                                Buzsacky vs Manning = Manning
                                HH vs Sylla = Sylla (But Heidar beats Conor and Wash in a 1 up front)

                                Right now, both teams at their best, 2010 wins. But only because Tarbs at his best was borderline unplayable.
