Re: Bielsa press conference pre Huddersfield - 05/12/19

White has the ability to play defensive midfield, it's about positioning though. How will he adabbt to having to be that bit furhter foward, especially with Berra behind who is not a natural central defender.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 4th December) Alarming statistic Leeds won't want to replicate this season

I dont think we 'burned out' last season, the stats still show we had as much posession and chances as we always did.

For whatever reason we lost it mentally in games like Wigan and Derby.

https://motforum.com/images/th/Leeds-v-Middlesbrough.jpg Confidence does wonders in sport, and from the very first minutes of Saturdays game you could see the Leeds players oozing with it. Luke Ayling’s speculative first minute shot, Harrisons take on and cross, Bamford’s confidence to hold his pos...

Re: Expected Goals (xG)

People talking about Brentford putting 7 past Luton today where we stuggled to break them down.

But we're 10 points ahead of Brentford with a better goal difference. Know where I'd rather be.

Re: Expected Goals (xG)

Only exceeded our xG five times this season, by far the biggest margin today. We've needed to be more clinical all season, today we were.

Re: Kalvin Phillips

Picked up his fifth booking today, suspended for the trip to Huddersfield now.

Looks like Berra will come into defence and White will play defensive midfield in that game after the late subs today.

Was a revalation at the start of this season, mind you he was one of our best players when he was on loan. Can't beleive he is still out, prefer Klich playing in that deeper role to be honest though.

Bielsa asked how he’d changed this season - says he is “less involved” than last year

What does he mean by this?

In the descision making? In transfers? On the training pitch?

So how many of Bielsa'a Leeds team can we include in our Team of the Decade & are loan signings eligible Adam?
As many as you want and yes, loan signings fine.

He said White would have been in but had only played a few games and Beckford only just pushed Wood out.
