Re: Leeds Utd v Stoke City (Carabao Cup) Match Thread - 17 minutes highlights

Negatives Defensively we appeared fragile without a proper commanding CB in the middle in the first half. How poor was Douglas ? Was Jack Clarke on the pitch ? the £10m + fee is looking a steal Kiko's poorest game this season, arguably should have saved both goals. Both goals came in a period when ...

Re: Leeds Utd v Stoke City (Carabao Cup) Match Thread - Costa, Nketiah and Bogusz start!

I think Phillips got the nod over a recognised CB like Strujik because he can step out and play midfield as well. Glad we brought it back and although it's a shame to go out, there a lot to be taken from the comeback. I hear Stoke fans were singing "Leeds are falling apart", well falling apart from ...

Re: Leeds Utd v Brentford Match Thread - Alioski Replaces Douglas

Not the best performance, but the kind of one which we would have ended up drawing or losing last year. Thought our passing was uncharacteristically poor, especially from Pablo who seemed a bit laboured all game. Defensively we look excellent and I can only think of a couple of times that they opene...

Re: Leeds Utd v Brentford Match Thread

I never forget players that have an impact on me, the ones I enjoy watching play for Leeds. My reaction would be same should Phillips & Pablo leave our club. I still drool over Revie's squad of players especially Bremner & Giles & then there's the likes of Strachan, Yeboah, Radebe, Beckford, etc wh...

Re: Leeds Utd v Brentford Match Thread

I'm going tonight for the first time in nearly two years and I can't wait! Injuries would be a blow, but Berardi and Shackleton coming in would be okay. Obviously Pontus will be a threat at set pieces, but I'm not too worried about Brentford really - they've scored 3 goals this season and all by Wat...

Re: The life of a perpetual loanee, footballs commodities

You make a good point, but lots of youngsters are also prepared to sign for clubs where they know they will only be bit players rather than stay at a smaller club for less money. I wonder what the likes of Kent and Harrison will do when their contracts expire. They probably won't expire though as t...

Re: The life of a perpetual loanee, footballs commodities

It's one of the unfortunate consequences of the money which is in the game now. These young players sign pro terms with top Premiership teams on £25,000+ p/w, with little prospect of game time behind the multi-million pound players. They have to play to develop, but if they aren't Prem standard, the...

Same starting 11 as vs. Forest. No. No. Possibly, but he's also not better than any of the current starters. No - same story as Shack and he'll get his chance. Cooper. Clarke - No. Costa - Yes, but he'll be good from the bench (hopefully earlier). No - Pearce had fallen down the pecking order and I ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wed 14th Aug) Leeds cruise to victory, end of a dynasty for Dallas?

Dallas has played well since getting back into the squad and I doubt Bielsa will drop him until Ayling is fully fit, and nor should he. Once he does lose his starting berth then he'd be one of the first names on the bench for me next to Berardi - his work rate at versatility makes him a good option.

Re: Salford City v Leeds Utd - Match Thread - Costa and Nketiah both start

That highlight from twitter doesn't show it, but Shackleton's movement before the first goal was brilliant - moved all the way from left wing, dragging defenders before he got the ball out right. Great through ball to Costa and an incisive cross and finish. Good to see us manage to break down a toug...

No Struijk in the squad is a strange one, but I suppose there's Berardi and KP in there as cover :twisted:

Nice attacking lineup with Shacks in midfield as well. Hopefully Bogusz can get some minutes later on. Decent bench as well if it looks hairy.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tue 13th Aug) Real reason Kent did not sign, 4 debut's tonight and Rio reveals all

Haha, £19m is silly money for a player with one good season in the SPL behind him. £10m would have been okay, but we clearly knew they want rid and tbh I'm not sure he'd offer much more than we have already. I hope that all of those players start tonight for fitness as much as anything else. Will be...

Like that apart from Phillips. Personally I wouldn't risk him....only my opinion mind :)
Yeah, I'd save Phillips as well and it'd give us a look at someone else in that role.

Really hoping Bogusz gets a start.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Mon 12th Aug) All the up to date news from Elland Road - with opinions from you, the fan

Doesn't feel like we're in a relegation battle to me. I still think we are champions material & yes we are the best footballing side in the championship. So far we are miles ahead of Bristol City & Forest. If I was a Forest fan I'd be extremely concerned after their performances v the baggies & us ...

Re: Leeds Utd v Nottingham Forest - Match Thread

It shouldn't have got that stage of game, we should have had a comfortable lead by the time the penalty calls arose. Bamford's efforts were really poor even though I thought his all-round game was good He hit the ball into the ground & the bounce took the ball onto the bar, hit it cleanly on target...

Meanwhile some fans were blaming Phillips, par for the course i suppose!
We defend as a unit - the 'blame' falls at each of the players who failed to clear it.
