Forest felled by Mighty Leeds

Nottingham Forest had all the chances but failed to take them. Leeds showed once again that the tough pre-season training programme has paid off with another strong finish and a last minute winner from Jermaine Beckford.

We are now at minus 6 points and another tough fixture is out of the way. Dennis Wise has got to be Manager of the Month there is no question about it!

Listening to the match on Yorkshire Radio whilst watching Sky Sports News, muted, at 1-1, a caption came up 'Nottingham Forest 1, Leeds United 2. It took a few seconds for that to sink in and I was just thinking that Sky had got it wrong the when the Yorkshire Radio commentator exploded with the news that Leeds had scored. I hope someone will explain how it is that live commentary on a PC is at least 30 seconds slower than satellite digital TV?

Leeds in League One with a 15 point penalty and a payout from selling out of tickets to Leeds fans must be a bonus for any team in League One side but United are fighting back in the best possible way. There is no wonder the League clubs voted to uphold the decision to penalise Leeds. No-one likes us but we don't care. We are catching up and will soon be climbing up that table.

Nottingham Forest 1 Leeds United 2

30 seconds delay for any 'live' internet transmission is about right, and audio.

If you want to test it, try tuning your radio to Radio 1 or 2 or some station you can also get on Sky. You'll soon hear that there is a delay of about 30 to 45 seconds between the two.

I was listening on Radio Leeds so hopefully heard 'the goal go in' just about live. Great result indeed.
