Re: Brentford v Leeds Utd Match Thread

We have seen what pressure has done to experienced players. What chance of teenagers coping better? Thats my worry. They will play without fear and more importantly, they will be unpredictable for the opposition. When Clarke first broke into the team, he was fearless and defences didn't know how to...

Re: Brentford v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Harrison, Roberts, Alioski, Dallas, Forshaw all not good enough and sadly atm, Jack Clarke too. Are you telling me that we have no players better than them in the u23s?

Re: Play-off Dates

Did the spying help us more than we think, we haven't been the same side since. Nah. The players didn't know. Same line up every week, tiredness, confidence, pressure, media coverage, opposition desperate to stop us going up etc for me. We desperately needed to freshen it up, but alas that will be ...

In tears at the end of the game :(

We've broken him :verysad:

34 years old and having to carry us, poor Pablo.
I think it's exhaustion as well. He needs a rest these last two games, no reason not to. Give Bogusz or Shack a chance.

Re: Play-off Dates

Would hate Boro because we won't break them down or Derby, because it will just be all spygate nonsense throughout the media and you know Fat Frank will smugly grab a lucky win to go through.

Re: Bottled it

Was a lot of talk early doors that Bielsa was our budget, that was it, cupboard was bare. Phil Hay said the same pre January regarding funds and i think Mike Thornton to said very similar in the summer, no money left. That would explain the top class manager with little backing. Just got to hope no...

Re: Brentford v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Although I don't believe that Bielsa will do it, we have the advantage of being able to make the decision before the Villa game knowing the Sheffield Utd result. If they lose, there is no way we will rest anyone. If they win, then we probably should. I wouldn't be particularly that bothered if we r...

Re: Brentford v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Bielsa refusing to blame the ref for the pen call and went round and shook the hands of all the players. The man is a saint who has been badly let down by the board and the players. Feel for him. This is where we need to stand up and be the 12th man, rather than letting our season filter out. It's ...

Re: Brentford v Leeds Utd Match Thread

To me it looks like we have no energy in midfield. Remember how we use to run back in numbers to defend, now it's just lazy jogging. Bogusz and Shack would give us energy from midfield.

Now autos are gone, we should rest Kiko, Pablo, Klich, Jansson, KP. Save them for the playoffs.

Re: Brentford v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Does anyone know if we can use on loan players in the playoffs? Could Pearce, Wilks or even Saiz come back?

Re: Brentford v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Maybe that is why we didn't spend big in January. If Bielsa is - rightly or wrongly - going to stick with the same small set of players, why spend the money? The thing is, until last Friday, you could easily argue that Bielsa's tactics were working, and the right thing to do. We didn't need to spen...

Does that Maupay want to play for us or something? Always desperate to celebrate in front of our fans than his own.

Re: Brentford v Leeds Utd Match Thread

The thing with Bogusz is, no one will know who he is or how to play against him. We need a bit of unpredictability. Hate that we're not using our own talents to do a favour for Fraudiola, even though he's done nothing to help us.

We gambled in January and lost.

Deja vu.

Same as last season and the season before.

The fact a clearly shot 18 year old is our only hope says it all.
Can't be criticising the great businessman on here. :roll:

Re: Brentford v Leeds Utd Match Thread

At the end of the day, just the same old story. Not taking our chances, opposition only needing one to score. No point Bielsa being angry at them as we all know the same team will be lining up for the Villa game. No point crying and feeling sorry for themselves, when they've got us in to this predic...

Re: Bottled it

I'd much rather we get autos :lol: Understand what you are saying but the playoffs are a lottery. We have already seen our players are mentally fragile. After spending most of the season top 2 would they be able to pick themselves up and go again? Me too. But I just don't see us winning all 3 to do...

Re: Bottled it

"If we turn up". After yesterday i don't think we have the mental strength tbh. It depends. If we play teams that try to attack us, we generally do well. That's why I'd be worried about Boro, as we'd struggle to break them down and we need 10 shots to score. Generally wouldn't be worried about WBA,...

Re: Bottled it

We just have to hope now but after yesterday its very difficult to see us getting autos and we wont win the playoffs. We do have the best record v the top 6, so I do think we can win the playoffs if we turn up. The one team I'd most want to avoid is Boro, as we will struggle with their height and p...

As long as Marcelo is at the helm
Yep it's imperative he stays. Another season in the Champ and he'll be aware of what we need, plus he will really bring on the u23s. To be third in his first season isn't bad at all, Farke came 14th last year for example.
