What's with the weird squiggly line at the start of the Villa players' names on their shirts? Looks like they all have a loose thread.
Rafa Benitez: "I'll always keep in my heart the good times I've had here, the strong and loyal support of the fans in the tough times and the love from Liverpool. I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

Make that 1-3 and that last goal was very nicely made. Leeds looking good.

Edit: 1-4 now. Derby have capitulated it seems.

Derby haven't been that bad, but they don't seem to have a system. Leeds' system is quite basic and direct, but the players all know what they're supposed to do.

I've only seen the last 25 mIns but leeds look good, i was wrong to say derby had capitulated but they have no answer to leeds set up. They have been probing but its quite poor.

This is bang on, be interesting to see if frank can develop a system. They just seem aimless right now, they are pushing and probing but they are not in sync. There's a team there though.

Leeds looking good, this may very well be their year but last season they started well too.

How shite performance was that from Derby though, losing 4-1 in first match at home? A streak of losses and players will give up in Lampard.

Fair play to Bielsa here, can't remember too many championship clubs playing football to this level

Think they scored a goal last week from back to front too which would be raved about if any fashionable team scored it

My Dad's a Leeds fan, and so they're my second team. Bielsa has them playing lovely football, with only two new additions in the side from last season. Very impressive. It's early days, obviously, but they look like the Liverpool of the Championship and are definitely the team to watch at the moment as Wolves were last season. Hope they get promotion, for my dad, and also for the bet I've got that involves them and Liverpool...
