Re: Today's Games

See Che Adams got 10 minutes at the end of the Southampton Cup match when replacing the injured Shane Long. Am sure he is delighted to still be there.

Re: January - Player Of The Month

Harrison missed two absolute sitters, just out of position keepers to beat in the 6 yard box for both of them. Klich missed an absolute sitter v Millwall. Phillips has missed 2 games out of the 5 through suspension and was sent off in another. Rose tinted spectacles come to mind.Not saying PB was br...

Re: The highs and lows of a promotion campaign

I certainly feel the tension in the crowd can get to the players and make them a little edgy rather than just playing naturally. You just have to look at Bamford's reaction to show that what the fans say, both on the internet and possibly at stadia, does get to the players.

Re: The highs and lows of a promotion campaign

I remember that Wilko promotion season well and the despair at times when it looked like we were blowing it. So many ups and downs and there was still the recent despair of losing in extra time of the FA Cup Semi Final and in extra time of the Play-Off Final replay after leading 1-0 in the memory of...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 5th February) - Augustin not being on the bench is just ridiculous, Noel Whela

So Whelan seems to suggest we ditch the way we play and as such create less chances. Good logic there given how poor we are at taking our chances. So dominating a game, creating loads of chances and giving a poor goal away and he wants a 'reaction.' All I want is for us to take more of our chances a...

Re: Accountability

"Underperformers will be replaced in time, but not on the basis of one game or a few games but after there's no doubt that their performances are hurting the team." Is that really true though ? Bamford and casilla proves otherwise Bamford had a poor run without scoring then had a good run of scorin...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 4th February) Redknapp questions training methods, Augustin has quiet debut for

Indeed. If we continue creating 15-20 chances per match whilst limiting the opposition to less than 5 we should win many more than we lose. That is the reason we are in the top 2. If we converted more of our chances we'd be running away with it. However we weren't converting more of our chances earl...

I said it before, when Liam Cooper said in Australia that the players were burnt out after Christmas, if the players feel they are being worked too hard it is up to them to collectively speak to Bielsa about it. Have a think about Liam Cooper. When was the last time Cooper played a full season? Mos...

I see it is the time of the season where pundits who have never managed spout their usual nonsense - probably having not even watched Leeds play this season apart from maybe the Arsenal match. Our form boils down to the 1 basic thing - not taking chances. No fitness issues, no burnout, no poor squad...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 3rd February) Has Bielsa become a liability?

So if he is not fit enough then the problem is Orta and Rad who at this crucial time of the season made a big mistake again(just like last season) They know that we only have one striker and they decide to risk the whole season by sign an unfit player. Che Adams would have been in the same boat in ...

Re: Jean-Kévin Augustin - 30/01/20 Press Conference

Complete difference between being muscular fit and being match fit. All the players at Leeds have said that they are fitter than they have ever been and most of them were playing regularly either for Leeds or other clubs. JKA has gone from getting limited game time at a club who may not have their r...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 3rd February) Has Bielsa become a liability?

I wish the lad well and I hope he makes the first team soon. But I hope it is because Bielsa thinks he is ready and not because the fans in the stands are clamouring for it. Sent from my SM-T515 using Tapatalk Bielsa doesn't seem to be the type to bow to fan pressure. Especially in the circumstance...

Yeah he wasn't stretchered off or owt, but in all seriousness I was expecting the worst. I'm liking what I'm seeing of him so far though it's clear to see why he's not played in the first team right off the bat. A bit rusty in his movement, though I actually think he looks a good hybrid of Bamford ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 3rd February) Has Bielsa become a liability?

Now i expected JKA to be on the bench - it would have given the crowd a lift to see him come on at some point when we were 1-0 down. However I have no idea as to how match sharp he is given that he hasn't been featuring much for Monaco. One thing we do now is that you have to be really fit to play t...

Re: January Transfer Window And Squad Discussion-No More signings

Don't forget that in that season (that Herrera talks about) the club got to both the final of the Copa Del Ray and Europa League so would have played an awful lot of games, certainly more than Leeds will play this season. Plus in the way the cup competitions are structured it would have meant they p...

Re: Hail Lord Bamford

Would agree with Gessa in that they will get sub appearances similar to how Costa and Nketiah did initially and then in a month's time if they have done well they would be considered for starting positions. Hopefully Poveda should be able to get used to Bielsa's ways quite quickly given that he woul...

Re: Leeds Utd v Millwall Match Thread - Poveda makes the bench for Leeds

The FL/FA need to get a grip of the position where a goal kick should be taken too. If the ball goes out on the right side of the goal line the keeper should take the kick from that side. They changed that rule a few years back so the keeper can kick it from either side. However there really is no ...
