Absolutely cracking game to watch as a neutral (leaning heavily towards Derby)

A lot of Championship games are far better to watch then Premier League.

I've always thought though - if you are a Championship player who wins promotion you are more likely to be sold when your club knows they've got £170m bonus. Fulham in the playoff final were great last season but then they went and spent £100m and look what happened!

Would Keogh be kept and play in the Prem League?

That was some match.
Fair play to big Frank, he was getting major stick from the Leeds fans when they were 0-2 down on aggregate.
Like you say UD far more exciting than your average Premier League match.
The tackles were fairly flying in, but that Leeds lad who got sent off let his team down there.

Sneaky cheer? I was off the bloody couch!! Great game and great to see Leeds fall apart again. Funny that the same fans who were singing “stop crying Frank Lampard” were crying themselves an hour later, the retort to the song Leeds made up was brilliant.

Now all the free scarves
Have been thrown away
Try not to worry
You’ll go up one day
You’ve got Barnsley at home
And Luton away
Stop crying Bielsa

Chuff me, so easy to forget how many sad [censored] there are on here - most enjoyment for the season for most in seeing another team get beat.
If laughing at other teams misfortune Shame the same passion not shown on any match day thread.
We've even got a wobblehead quoting Derby songs - maybe if a few sang some Carlisle songs it would help the awful atmosphere at BP.
Poeple should look at Leeds and see what a football day out should be.
Think of Preston away, Bury home, Lincoln home, Hartlepool away in Knighton's days and multiple it by 10 instead of the stale shit on offer at BP now.
This year has restored my faith in football, and I would not swap it at all (apart from the promotion). Great days with the two boys and the grandson, fantastic football from the same players who were mediocre the year before, a plan from the club, the club in harmony with the fans, cracking young home grown players coming through. What's not to like.
In comparison, I don't think people realise the serious the situation at Carlisle is, it is heartbreaking to see.
But when it goes tits up, at least Frank will be able to sing his Derby songs.

If you can't laugh at your own team's success (because there is none) you might as well laugh at others who don't get it!

Leeds are a pantomime villain who everyone loves to hate. Take it as a compliment, at least people have an opinion on the club. Really good to see 4 proper football clubs in the playoffs trying to get into the Premier League rather than sh!tty little clubs that nobody cares either way about.

Lowe league football is boring, the football is poor, the clubs are poorly supported and there is no atmosphere. However, many of us persist as we support our local team and live in hope of better things , one day.
Watched Derby v Leeds game and it was a cracking atmosphere and a great game, but when Leeds were 2-0 up on aggregate and the fans were singing their Lampard song and banging the dugout etc, I was thinking how funny it would be if they messed it up.
Bamford got booked for diving again, the other lad threw himself to the floor, the keeper had a nightmare and the Leeds fans weren’t gloating at the end of the game. I am no Leeds hater, but found myself willing them to get beat. If you dish it out, you have to be able to take it.

Yeah, don't disagree with any of that. Not sure they were banging on the dugouts mind - the area behind the dugouts is where the players wifes sit.
Bamford one was a nailed on pen as Keogh (best game I've seen him have for Derby - normal service be resumed for the final) clearly kneed him.
Point I was making was Carlisle was a cracking atmoshpere until the last 3 - 5 years, and not all down to the three amigos.

Keogh was brilliant. I remember you saying summat ages ago about your always happy to face him with his comedy defending. Think that bit you on the arse a bit. Anyhow as said above great game for the neutral to watch. Not sure who id like to win the final as itd be great for the former Carlisle players in the Derby side but it also may give us a very slight chance of getting O'Hare back if Villa go up. Doubtful that though.

Must have been the players wives they were banging then.
Some of these Derby youngsters really came to the fore in this game, Leeds looked a bit short in the end. I like Ayling, a wholehearted , dogged player.
Watching the game reminded me of watching the top level 20/30 years ago. Lots of meaty challenges and plenty of mistakes to go with the quality, which makes football more exciting.
Sheffield United have been propped up by Bin Laden money (allegedly).

Yes. I suppose it was a bit of a gamble for Derby throwing these youngsters in to the team.
I know it's a while since Leeds have been in the Premier League, but I always think it seems more exciting for some of these bigger clubs to be in the promotion mix than languishing in mid-table or lower in the Premier League and getting swept aside by the big boys.
Aston Villa are the classic example of this, but then that's just an observation from an outsiders perspective.

Strangely enough, Leeds United seem to have a large following in Carlisle - I know of at least five people who support them and go to games with others from here.

They are all from Carlisle but what I could never understand is that most of them hate Carlisle United with a passion and mock us on Facebook if we lose.

For me it is only teams that affect Carlisle United that mainly piss me off, like the cheating stop start games that Notts County and Lincoln have been playing recently - with totally adverse results for both teams.

I meant that they had played then all season and given them regular football , which is not an easy decision when you are chasing promotion.
That's what I meant by throwing them into the team, as opposed to them being bit part players.
As for the thing about why does anyone get excited about them losing, if you are a Carlisle fan and not one of these ones who also supports Liverpool etc and you watch a match on the telly, you are probably going to find an angle on who to root for . Leeds are a very easy club to dislike for numerous reaaons. It kind of makes you a saddo to some degree but then given that 99.99% of matches on TV do not involve Carlisle, an inderstandable one.

Is it such a great comment though? You don't necessarily have to be part of events to be pleased that they happened. You could apply the same logic to people who 'support' a team from another part of the country to where they are from, or 'support' two or more teams.

Don't know if you're being deliberately obtuse, but one is an England international and the other two mentioned are u-23 internationals. Two of them are among the best six players in the champoinship.
Point taken on being an easy club to dislike, but makes no sense for Carlisle supporters to dislike them. Our paths have only ever crossed once apart from cup games.

No wasn't being obtuse CW. Like a lot of these players on Liverpool or Chelsea or whoever's books I didn't think they had seen a lot of first team football and I didn't realise they were quite as highly rated as you suggest. Sign of the way the game is these days, I suppose.

Haha, this is brilliant! A grown man throwing his toys out the pram because people are laughing at his football team! Dear me, I do apologise for hurting your feelings sweetheart.

I absolutely can’t stand Leeds, whether it be football or rugby league. Their fanbase bleat on about how wonderful they are, how many they’ve taken here and there and how they’re the best supporters in the country. The reality is for the 3rd or 4th largest city in the country and the largest single-club city by a distance their following isn’t that remarkable afterall. They harp on about winning the European cup even though they lost the final and if your “football day out” consists of causing havoc wherever you go, punching goalies, singing about Jimmy Saville shagging folk and chanting about English footballers dying in an air crash 60 odd years ago then fill your boots, it’s not my idea of a good day out.

You don’t have to be a direct rival of anyone to dislike them, you just have to witness the joy around the country at Liverpool arsing the league up to realise this. The fact of the matter is that if your fanbase acts in a certain manner for long enough you attract an army of haters - I would have thought a Leeds fan would have realised this by now.

The fact of the matter is that if your fanbase acts in a certain manner for long enough you attract an army of haters - I would have thought a Leeds fan would have realised this by now.


How am I throwing my toys about the pram by pointing out how stupid it is to see a grown man getting a semi on about the mighty Derby County of all teams. What is your relationship to them?
If you think the reasons you list are justification for not being able to stand Leeds, you really need to get out more you sad [censored].
No wonder Barry doesn't like you.

As many on here will already know - I am not a big fan of Liverpool full stop.

However one of my best friends is a massive fan and he wanted them to win the league more than anything and he was so gutted when I seen him the other day as it would have meant the world to him.

As it is not affecting Carlisle United I don't mind if Liverpool win in the final now as it would cheer him up, sometimes it is about people and not vitriol.

If laughing at other teams misfortune Shame the same passion not shown on any match day thread.
We've even got a wobblehead quoting Derby songs - maybe if a few sang some Carlisle songs it would help the awful atmosphere at BP.
Poeple should look at Leeds and see what a football day out should be.
Think of Preston away, Bury home, Lincoln home, Hartlepool away in Knighton's days and multiple it by 10 instead of the stale shit on offer at BP now.
This year has restored my faith in football, and I would not swap it at all (apart from the promotion). Great days with the two boys and the grandson, fantastic football from the same players who were mediocre the year before, a plan from the club, the club in harmony with the fans, cracking young home grown players coming through. What's not to like.
In comparison, I don't think people realise the serious the situation at Carlisle is, it is heartbreaking to see.
But when it goes tits up, at least Frank will be able to sing his Derby songs.


Haha, this is brilliant! A grown man throwing his toys out the pram because people are laughing at his football team! Dear me, I do apologise for hurting your feelings sweetheart.

I absolutely can’t stand Leeds, whether it be football or rugby league. Their fanbase bleat on about how wonderful they are, how many they’ve taken here and there and how they’re the best supporters in the country. The reality is for the 3rd or 4th largest city in the country and the largest single-club city by a distance their following isn’t that remarkable afterall.

Haha, wasn’t so much about Derby, it could have been any team tbh, it was the fact Leeds got beat and blew promotion again! It’s the fact I do get out and see what a bunch of scumbags Leeds fans are for myself which has made me form my opinion.

One of my mates is a big Leeds fan, almost bordering on fanatic but even he admitted what a horrible bunch they are when he took his boy to his first game at Elland Road this season and was forced to leave after an hour due to the behaviour of some fans sat behind him in the NE corner.

I can’t say I’m surprised to come on here and see Carlisle fans gloating about Leeds getting beat, I don’t know of anyone who likes them. My personal hatred comes from going to Elland Rd as a 14 year old and getting beaten up in a pre-meditated attack by grown men.
Fair do’s you shouldn’t generalise but I’ve heard nothing since to change my opinion of them, including Maryport whites beating innocent Carlisle fans men and women on the way to Elland Rd at some services.
Onto the game, I’ve watched Derby all season and that is by far and away the best they’ve played, they set a great tempo and counter attacked with effect. Over the 2 legs I think they deserved it and I had a little wager on it as well so well happy. And by the way the atmosphere at BP continues to deteriorate and that is down to the custodians and the disillusionment with the club but I still came away from the Bury, MK Dons and Lincoln games this season feeling happy to support my local team however tinpot they are.

Yeah, course that happened. Big Leeds fan but scared to take his boy - no one would carry on following them. Who is it as I probably know him, or my lad will, and we can ask him.
Just look above at your reasons for saying you hate Leeds (singing about waccoe and Jimmy Saville).
Like I say, just a childish obsession with hating Leeds because you probably saw one of the cool kids do it. You [censored] nob.

Yeah, I get that being a personal experience. Not the first time I've heard similar stories at Leeds from the 80s and 90s, could be a horrible time to be a football fan generally though. DR told me a similar tale happened to him.
Its the wobble heads who dislike Leeds for no obvious reason I was commenting on. Still a bit raw as well.
Fourth time we've played Derby and only time they've played well, but sods law.
I've lost faith with Carlisle over the last two or three years to be honest, but still would love to see them do well, but do worry about them the longer this malaise goes on.

Every time I've been to a Leeds match there's been unsavoury incidents. Right back to the 80s at Elland Road when McKellar was pelted with coins and more recently when they were smacking people in the face for no apparent reason as the Carlisle fans came out of Elland Road. Also the game at BP when we beat them 3-1 and they were throwing stones at kids and terrorising passers by at the station when they got off the train. Maybe I've just been unlucky!

They are very easy to dislike. :-D

As for it being strange disliking other teams that's part of the enjoyment surely!
