Re: Stoke v Leeds - MAN OF THE MATCH

Ali

BPF

Thats it, surprised Forshaw has so many votes seeing as it was him ball watching that allowed Allen to sneak in and score.

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

As a classic number 10 I agree, playing high alongside and off a "number 9" ...as a Saiz/Pablo type I'm afraid he'd struggle with all, those nipping tackles you get at that position. Can you really see him do the job Saiz did? Oxford a division or two down ain't LUFC top of the Championship, not by...

Have to say that stat isn't good
Exactly, ask yourself, what is Aylings standout quality?

Energy? Thats pretty weak, anyone can be fit.

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

Tbf what Stan said is a common criticsm of Bielsa, unfortunately those who do it tend to know next to nothing about MB. He turned down the Argentina job in 2016. He was chased by Inter for years in early 2010s. Turned down Real Madrid in 2004. And he was the favourite for the Barcelona job after Pep...

Re: Bielsa Calls A Press Conference.

Actually Collymore has been at it again in a column he writes for one of the Sunday rags . https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.leeds-live.co.uk/sport/leeds-united/leeds-united-bielsa-collymore-spygate-15704489.amp I think he actually believes the rubbish he spouts.

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

That's more than some created Ayling drove into the box beating two men unlucky not to find a man with his pass, he also beat their full-back during that 2nd half period only for his cross to find no one. So unlucky with his header denied by a world class save. Yes his passing was not great but he ...

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Some think Roofe would make a good number 10, I disagree with this somewhat, he's not a player that can deal with the physicality that position deals with. Just on that bit slightly confused. Imo Roofe would make a number 10, thats where he played at Oxford after all. Good number 10s find space, th...

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Is it just me who can see why Jansson walked? For a start if he kept his gob shut he wouldn't have got the first booking in the first place. The 2nd was harsh since he slipped but if you watch he caught Afobe right foot, it was that which caused the heavy touch that allowed BPF to claim, without tha...

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

No one did deserved a rating of 7/10 yesterday including your loved one Ali who I did think was one of our better players. Ayling produced more going forward than any of our midfielders including young Jack Clarke, the lad needs to learn how to defend if he is looking for a regular start down the f...

Re: Luke Ayling

Ayling was no worse than the majority on the pitch today, infact he was better than Harrison & Klich Disagree i thought he was very poor. The only thing he did was run a lot and misplace passes, created nothing, had one good header. Ali created 4 shooting chances and put in 12 crosses from the left...

Re: January Transfer Rumours And Squad Discussion

Thought Dan James did well when he came on for Swansea, certainly more use for them then Harrison was for us today.

Prefer we were seeing what Brentford want for Benrahma or Canos or even Adam Armstrong at Blackburn.

But thought James did ok, certainly direct

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

BPF- 6, made some decent saves, not really at fault for any of the goals, although a weak punch was involved in the build up to one of the goals. Ayling-3 Very poor, constantly putting his teammates under pressure with his lax passing, didnt help Clarke when he should be releasing the ball to him ea...

Re: Luke Ayling

I really try not to criticise players if I can help it, but have to agree, he's been woeful since his return from injury. His passing is unbelievably bad for a professional footballer. He always has been very poor offensively imo, passing wise especially. Love his energy but in our style you cant a...

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

3 defeats in 4 but will still be top. All the teams we have struggled against have set their store to defend deep and look to catch us out and it works . We will have good and bad days just as everyone else will. Agree. Thats how it is when your entire offensive play relies on pass and move. If you...

Re: Luke Ayling

Woeful today, his passing and headless chicken offensive play is a real issue, constantly allows us to be countered on the turnover because of it.

Just dont get what people see in him apart from energy and he seems a happy chap.

Rather Shacks gets a chance there.

Re: Stoke City v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Jansson lost the race, slipped and caught Afobe, bit harsh but cant deny the little touch on Afobe allowed BPF to get there first imo.
