Re: Keep/Sell

Keep everyone. We're going to lose a couple of players to the Premier league anyway. After that, add to the squad we have: Berardi, Forshaw, and all.

Re: AS Roma in For Bielsa

He's got nothing left to prove. I can see plenty of reasons for him to stay at Leeds. Money? Maybe. We'd better make sure we pay him enough to stay

Loanees Returning

Pretty good breakdown here on Leeds Live. Mostly disappointments. Guys like Shaugnessy, O'Connor, and Pearce that broke into first team last year seem further away. You'd think Anita would be a perfect squad player for Bielsa but seems to have regressed. Lewie Coyle was much hyped last year but does...

Re: Transfer Strategy

I really don't think Radz needs to change, because I really don't think much is needed. We'll probably lose a couple of players to the premier league at decent fees. And Harrison is the only worthwhile loanee that's leaving. Bielsa did a great job and went really close with the squad we have. We'll ...

Re: We already had the 2 players that would have sent us up...

We only missed out on auto promotion by a small margin. Agree that Saiz alone could have been that difference. But Leeds didnt make a mistake, he just didn't want to be there.

No I don't think there was an issue with squad size...
So the XI we put out tonight were good enough for promotion? And Pablo's not tired?

Re: Problems with Squad Size

Didnt help that the club allowed the squad to get weaker in January, Baker and Saiz going. The squad was to small and lacked quality in key areas imo. Bielsa worked wonders but how many of our players are top level Championship players? A couple maybe. Yeah. I forgot about Baker and Saiz. I guess J...

Problems with Squad Size

Does anyone think we just didn't have enough strength in depth to make it? My first complaint was about all the injuries. Seriously, we had like 6 first teamers down, and that's tough to deal with. But I also think we should have had enough depth to get past that. On top of the players missing, I th...

Re: Next season

First thing is keep Bielsa. He showed his class becasue ge really didnt have a better squad than either TC or PH. I wouldnt sell anyone by choice. Keep as many as possible and add what we can. It's inevitable that we'll lose 2 or 3, maybe more. I doubt we can keep Jansson, Phillips, and Clarke. Plus...

Re: Sometimes it's a blessing in disguise

I thought the same thing after we went up under Wilkinson. That squad was much better equipped to handle the top flight than Bremner's was. Although, after 1987, it did go bad before we got things going again. We didn't go up the next year. But, I would see much optimism to go up next year, if we fa...

Re: Goalkeeper

Kiko has been an improvement. We just don't do enough in the final third. I think our squad has been too thin in the run-in - that's the reason for the drop in form.

Re: Has Bielsa Given Up?

I think it was a rally call. Trying to out a make or break on the last few games of the season. No reason why we can't find the same level next year and even take it up a notch. If we don't go up, a second season under Bielsa can only be stronger. Players have more time to develop. Signings are bett...

Re: Yosuke Ideguchi

Played for U-23's yesterday but not even on bench today (Shaugnessy and DeBock were). Does he have a future? Will he play for U-23s all year, or will they send him on loan before the deadline?

USA Viewers

Are you finding anywhere to watch the games. All I'm getting is goal clips on facebook. I did listen to the first game on Radio Leeds for about 55 minutes before it shut me off.

Hopes for Carabao Cup

Hoping that this won't be a priority, even though I know our fans can be a little impatient. It's a 46 game season which is tough, all the more so given Bielsa's high tempo. Not hoping we get knocked, but hoping we don't sacrifice anything in the ultimate goal of promotion. That said would like to s...

O'Kane, Ekuban, Anita, Ideguchi ? Ideguchi provides cover if we don't get another midfielder and can't complain about making a name in U-23s Anita - will have to stay until Xmas due to injury O'Kane - obviously not in plans and can't see him in U23s - move to happen? Ekuban - could play in U23s - su...
