Re: Is Heck slowly turning us around ?

There is potential with FW even though I feel we still need a better keeper. FW has good anticipation in open play and good close reflexes. If his weaknesses could be ironed out then he could be a decent keeper but the trouble is that until they are he will cost us goals.

Re: Pierre-Michel Lasogga

And don't tell the rest of the team ...could work A more simple way would be to make him the joint highest earner but we' pay his club a higher transfer fee so that they then pay off the last year of his contract. Or can be a huge incentives in the contracts such as bonuses per goal, per apppearanc...

Re: Hadi Sacko

Technically a very good player just lacks the end product. He seems to panic and if someone can get him to calm down then there can be an excellent player but he really needs to start showing it because there has been no improvement in his game in 18 months despite the occasional moment when he has ...

Re: Is Heck slowly turning us around ?

I agree with you about a manager faaip. We got lucky with Revie, Wilko and Graham, but George really wasn't happy and it showed. We got lucky to a point with O'Leary but obviously it imploded in the end. We got lucky with Grayson but had a crap chairtwot. Other than that - :dun: For a club as big a...

Re: Is Heck slowly turning us around ?

I agree a top manager should have been a top priority but I'm not going to get on Heck's back as soon as he walks though the ER doors. Radz is the man to start throwing sticks at as he is the man who had employed Christiansen & Heckingbottom Tbf to PH the tykes team that smashed us at Oakwell last ...

Re: I'd be tempted to go 3 at the back against Derby....Derby v Leeds - Team/Reports/Ratings

If you want to play 3 at the back then it really has to be 3 players that can play centreback as what will often happen is that either the left or right centreback has to go wide to try to tackle the opposition winger meaning the 2 remaining centrebacks both need to be able to head the ball away,mar...

Re: Is Heck slowly turning us around ?

So amidst all the criticism Heck is playing on a level playing field for the first time at Derby for yet another challenge against a top seven side. He's not playing against the likes of Burton, Birmingham, Forest, Ipswich, Hull, Millwall where TC mustered five points from those seven games, then t...

Not writing Grot or Klich off but both need to show they can do it in the championship. Hopefully both can.

Re: Pierre-Michel Lasogga

But alienates those earning a lot less, especially as Lassoga wouldn't be our best player and earning double..I'd imagine Saiz, Hernandez, Jansson and a couple of others would want wage rises to bring them into line with Lassoga Always ways around it i.e. wages £10k p/w but £1m signing on fee etc.

Re: Adam Forshaw

Forshaw completed 43 passes v BC, more than any other player from either side. He also completed 84:6 of his passes, the highest % of any Leeds player A tidy player in the Batty mould. His pass success ratio should always be high because the majority of his passes are the safe type to a team mate i...

Re: Pablo Hernandez

Would probably have to go to more of a diamond midfield with presumably Forshaw as the defensive midfield, Saiz as the attacking midfielder, Hernadez and 1 other as the 2 wider players with Hernandez and Saiz given license to rotate. Either that or you go to a 451 with Ekuban and Hernandez as the 2 ...

Re: Is Heck slowly turning us around ?

Heck walked into a minefield inheriting a job with three players suspended (as well as the players TC has to take responsibility for our poor discipline) plus Heck had three players on the injury list. Poor disclipline I could blame the manager for if he was telling them to go out and be aggressive...

Re: Is Heck slowly turning us around ?

Even though we were poor in the first-half we still created a couple of decent chances. Felix & our redundant defence put us on the back foot We were poor in the first half as such like I said either the wrong starting XI was selected or they weren't fired up. Either way not good and no improvement...

Re: Is Heck slowly turning us around ?

Agree with Cjay. We have been dire in our last few first halves, including the 2 under PH, and been significantly better in the second halves even when playing with 10 men (such as v Millwall, Ipswich and Cardiff) so really there is no change at all. I wouldn't get too carried away yet with PH's cha...

Re: Leeds Fans 2-0 Bristol City

Must admit when I heard the firs Waccoe chants it just brought a wry smile to my face and the thought that we never will be.

Re: Current moderators

I would suggest that if anyone wants to stand they do so otherwise we keep the current moderators. If we maybe say a closing date as end of Feb and then we have a vote with the 3 current lowest placed moderators and all new applicants and then forma new moderator group.
