Leeds United fans ask will Mitrovic get banned like Bamford for this pathetic attempt to get a Huddersfield player sent off

Leeds United fans are taking the charge and calling for EFL to ban Fulham star Aleksandar Mitrovic after the Serbian was caught on cam deliberately trying to get a Huddersfield player sent off during the Championship fixture last night.

    Not for one minute saying Bamford didn’t dive, however if Mitrovic doesn’t get a retrospective ban it’s just indisputable proof the EFL is corrupt! Due to Mitrovic’s over the top reaction it’s much worse than Bamford’s dive!#LUFC pic.twitter.com/2Srpb0wSvA

Huddersfield have sacked boss Jan Siewert following their 2-1 defeat by Fulham.

The 36-year-old German managed just one victory from his 19 games in charge.

Siewert took over in January after David Wagner left the club but could not prevent their relegation from the Premier League – and a poor start to this season has cost him his job.

Siewert’s only win was a 1-0 victory over Wolves in his fifth game at the helm as Huddersfield finished bottom, relegated by March.

A club statement read: “Huddersfield Town has this evening terminated the contract of head coach Jan Siewert with immediate effect.

“Siewert joined the club from Borussia Dortmund in January 2019 in the club’s ultimately unsuccessful fight against relegation from the Premier League and led the team in the first four competitive games of the new season, with his final game in charge being the Sky Bet Championship defeat to Fulham on Friday evening.

“No further comment will be made this evening.”

Calls for Siewert to be sacked had grown earlier in the week after the Terriers were dumped out of the Carabao Cup at the hands of Lincoln.

And the club acted on Friday night after their third match without a win in the Championship, with Ivan Cavaleiro’s curling effort 10 minutes from time giving Fulham victory.

Karlan Grant’s third goal of the campaign had earlier cancelled out Aleksandar Mitrovic’s opener.

The Terriers enjoyed the best of the first half but once again their goal-shy attack failed to deliver.

Steven Sessegnon, making his league debut for Fulham, produced a brilliant lunging block to keep out Lewis O’Brien’s third minute effort as Huddersfield started quickly.

Alex Pritchard flashed a long range effort wide on seven minutes before Cavaleiro sent a curing effort wide a minute later after Kamil Grabara flapped at a cross.

The forward then scuffed an effort straight at Grabara on 18 minutes following a surging run into the danger zone.

Terence Kongolo headed wide from a 28th minute corner, before Pritchard won another corner a minute later as Huddersfield kept up the pressure.

It led to increased frustration among the home fans as possession was squandered in key areas in the run up to half-time.

Grabara got down well to keep out Joe Bryan’s fierce shot across goal on 41 minutes during a rare Fulham attack.

Mitrovic blazed over at the start of the second half after his initial shot had been blocked by Christopher Schindler.

Grabara turned an Anthony Knockaert shot away with his legs as the visitors started to turn the screw.

And they got their reward when Mitrovic beat Tommy Elphick at the back post to head home on 51 minutes after Juninho Bacuna had initially made a mess of a clearance.

But the lead lasted just six minutes when Grant got his third of the season after his header hit the post and was ruled by goal-line technology to have crossed the line.

Grabara got the better of Knockaert in a one-on-one on 60 minutes as the game began to open up.

And the Cottagers wrapped it up late on when Cavaleiro curled into the top corner after he had been given far too much space on the corner of the box – a goal which ultimately cost Siewert his job.

Depends, expecting top 2? Must be 6 points, play off place, 4 will do. Personally these are the games that we should win and help get as a team, we rely on individual brilliance at the moment so games against teams like this should suit us.

Sent from my SM-G960F using

Agreed, individual brilliance is great to watch but put up against Power, passion and teamwork a la Leeds it begins to fade.
We need to work, work, work on those additional attributes to make us a team to really fear.

Josh Onomah opens up about leaving Spurs

Fulham midfielder Josh Onomah has spoken about his deadline day move to Cottagers from Tottenham.

The former Spurs playmaker was involved in a deal on the final day of the transfer window that saw Ryan Sessegnon head to the north London side and Onomah move the other way on a permanent deal, and the 22-year-old has spoken about the move for the first time.

Speaking to Fulham’s official website, Onomah said: “It was weird leaving Tottenham. I’ve been with them since I was eight, Tottenham has been my whole life, so it has been strange, but when one door closes another one opens.

“All I’m feeling now is excitement about the new challenge here, and hopefully I can settle in quickly.”

Onomah has been part of the Tottenham first-team squad since the age of 17, however, the midfielder has often found himself in the U-23 side in Premier League 2 or out on loan at the likes of Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday

The England youth international also spoke out about how hectic the deal was to experience, with Onomah being a vital figure piece in a two-way transfer in the final days of the transfer window.

The midfielder said: “It was a stressful couple of days, what with me not being definitely sure if it was going to happen or not,” Onomah told fulhamfc.com. “But to finally get here, meet the players, meet the staff, is amazing and I just can’t wait to get started.

“When there’s two deals relying on each other it makes things a little more complicated. You hope for the best and that it all goes to plan, and thankfully it did. I wish Sess (Sessegnon) the best as well. I know him, I know he’s going to settle in quickly and do well, and I wish all the best for him.”

are going to be tough......
Would you settle for 4points now??
 049:gif  :clap_hands:  :yay:

In this league, with our roster, I would never sign for anything less than three points in a home match.

I know we won't go 23-0-0 at home, but why give away two points before you start when you're almost always -- if not always -- the better side?

I'd like to see our cutthroat mentality surface early this season. All points count the same, early or late. Go get the six at home.
