Leeds Are Arrogant Says Carlisle’s Murphy

Carlisle United defender Peter Murphy has made himself a target for Leeds United fans as he suggests that the Elland Road side show “arrogance.”

Murphy’s comments come just 2 days ahead of the playoff semi-final first leg, and with Gary McAllister claiming he was “content” with his promotion matchup, Leeds in general were destined to get someone’s back up, again!

Murphy said: “Leeds will probably say they're happy to be playing anybody because they don't think they should be in this league.

“Hopefully that little bit of arrogance will work in our favour and if we do get promoted it will be all the better.

In a rare positive moment, he added:

“Leeds have a very good squad and we know we'll have to step up our game. You expect to play good sides in the play-offs.

It soon wore off:

“But that's where Leeds are disrespecting us a little bit, saying they are happy to play us.

“According to Leeds, everything has gone against them this season - they shouldn't be in this league, the 15 points deduction and so on.

“If Leeds are such a big club, and if we are the underdogs, that's the way it's got to be. Everyone is expecting them to win and there's no pressure on us.”

With a bit of luck, Brunton Park will see Carlisle finished off before the second 90 minutes even have to be played.

My next door neighbour Is Carlisles Ass/coach & And he's a Very nice bloke so I presume that Murphy speaks alone & he'll feel the wrath of Leeds & Leeds fans. Leeds & proud.

Thought SWL would have gone off to Benidorm with his winnings..Typical British brain dead,shandy drinking,hankerchief wearing,jesus sandal wearing
Moscow this year love,via Poland and 25 hours on a train.
Yeah right, sat in front of the telly pretending, and lying to yourself just like your million pound horse win...carry on fooling yourself and enjoy the bandwagon you arse!
SLF, if you are really going to Moscow good on you support your team but don't get off on us having a hard time you would have thought 10 league wins in nearly as many years was enough for you. We will just carry on supporting our team through thick and thin which we suspect is more than most of your glory hunters would do if you ever have hard times again.
