Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tue 25th Sept)

Birmingham City have accused Leeds of trying to cheat during the second half by trying to introduce a multi-ball system. At the start of each game clubs must decide whether they want to make use of a single ball throughout a game, or use ballboys to throw another ball to a player every time one goe...

Re: Mateusz Klich

The only possible reason would seem to be fitness related cos as you both say he is more likely to score or create a goal than his replacements.

Re: Leeds Utd v Birmingham City Match Thread

Roberts showed some great footwork yesterday, on 2 occasions putting our players in great positions, Alioski crossing one straight to the keeper when he had loads of time to do better, the other Saiz, running into trouble when he had 3 players to pass it to in good positions with space. Tried reall...

Re: Leeds Utd v Birmingham City Match Thread

Goals play such a big part in football - much more so than in many other sports where the better team will win all the time - and we gifted them a 2 goal start. In a few of our games the opposition have had a chance to score before us and those matches may well have turned out differently as it is a...

Re: Leeds Utd v Birmingham City Match Thread

Dan I know we will lose games at some stage however with Bielsa at the helm he has instilled a strong mental attitude into the players I'd expect them to show resilliance & bounce back from a defeat not roll over & die as these players did under Christiansen. We've already shown spirit coming back ...

Re: England/Southgate

Spanish coaching is light years ahead of English coaching - they will always have a conveyor belt of players that are comfortable on the ball no matter what position they play.

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Mon 10th Sept)

Good afternoon :) I watched the Northern Ireland game and posted about the two goals on the BPF thread. I don't think he was to blame for either goal. The Irish defending was awful and the Bosnian player who crossed for the first goal should have been closed down. There were four :duno: (I think) d...

Definitely. I think PH's attitude (and slagging off of the players) definitely upset a few of the players who seemed to down tools. Key is getting the right balance and a good coach needs to have several ways to motivate and integrate all the players.

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 7th Sept)

Heckingbottom had a lot to say earlier in the season why things did not work out for him at ER! He can say all he wants but ultimately the results were abysmal and the club is in a far better place with Bielsa in charge. It is essentially the same group of players that he continually said were not ...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 7th Sept)

Interesting comments from Klich. Whilst it was accepted wisdom that TC caused the rift, perhaps Klich had something of an attitude problem and did some growing up when he was in Holland and over the summer. Whatever happened, we now have a helluva player on our books. He'd have been wasted in the M...

Radrizzani has hinted that Oriol Rey, Alex Machuca, Adrian Balboa and Oliver Sarkic could all be offloaded permanently Radrizzani told the YEP 'We have a lot of millions in Under-23 salaries. It’s too heavy for this club'. Think it was absolutely the right policy last year to sign loads as our unde...

Re: Next Six Games....

I don't know how any proper Leeds fan can predict anything less than 18. In all honesty I think anyone suggesting less than 16 should be given a two week ban - and I only would set the threshold at 16 in case some sort of freak result happens where we only draw a match due to having 4 men sent off, ...

Re: Leeds United Under-23's thread

Continuing off from where they ended last season. No reason why they can't win the league. Jack Clarke deserves a chance now. Surely he'd offer more from the bench than Dallas from an attacking point of view? I think Bielsa likes Dallas's versatility on the bench as he can play either full back or ...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Mon 3rd Sept)

I would have liked a CB, but tbh based on how we play it's the attacking players who do most of the work, so I understand why we focused on improving our attacking options instead. Bielsa likes to play the likes of Phillips and Forshaw there as well, plus Halme is coming back to fitness as another ...

Re: Next Six Games....

18 points and a massive goal difference too - would be disappointed if we didn't win all those games by at least 4 clear goals each. Would expect at least 2 of our players to be into double figures for goals after the matches.
