Agree 100%.

Forshaw is the big money signing.

So its got to be Forshaw and Vieira starters imo

It would seem that MOT is famous. Particularly Norm, Newport and Weasel.

This is the thing when people are always demanding strengthening the squad with players good enough to be starters. However I think a lot of the time it can sort itself out as people get injuries and bans. For example now with Saiz being out for a few more matches there is the flexibility to move KP into the no.10 role if PH gets injured. There is also the KP yellow cards issue where he is only 1 yellow card away from a ban. It also gives TC the option to do a little rotation (not to the FA Cup scale) and give the players a 1 match breather here and there - which may help us down the final stretch as I would hate to see us implode like last season.

What an absolute tool the writer of the article is. He suggests Leeds fans are singing him praises than uses my quote incorrectly as it was a quote about Klich - not only that but it was a quote that would hardly be seen as singing the praises of a signing. Shows the appalling lack of intelligence and standards that people have these days as they pretend to be journalists - as well as the fact that presumably no one else has proof read his article as they would have surely picked up on it.

Think we can see why we need a player like Forshaw now.

We totally lost the midfield in the 1st half. Phillips and Vieira have qualities but control and dictating play isnt one of them.

Think Vierra has those qualities but maybe rushed back (again no reserves is to blame) Phillips is more of a number 10.

Forshaw, to eearly to dudge. Seems a bit like 0`Kane his style of play.
4 Million seems a bit overprized, but will have to wait till I can judge him based on seeing him more play.

One player I am really having second thoughts about is Viera. Just find it hard lately to name any real positives he adds to the team.

He was an inch away from a red card and the story would be different, nasty lunge that. Other than that MOTM today

Think a few players from both sides could easily have joined Berardi today in getting a red card. Seems decent from what we have seen of him so far but as we get another piece of the jigsaw we seem to keep losing other pieces due to injuries or red cards. If we can get our best XI on the pitch we don't have a bad side but we do lack any depth - for me this season may as well be written off and hopefully next season a few of the U23s can make the step up.

Forshaw has been our most composed player on the park in his first two games for Leeds by a country mile

Hopefully it isn't just the case that he has stood out because of how poor others have been and that he will continue to look good even when we hopefully get back to playing well.

Very composed again, rarely loses the ball and his passing is very accurate. Thats good.

But, hope to see a bit more erm, raawr in future, bit more going forward, looking to open up defences, that sort of thing. He is clearly a classy customer, like a poor Xavi, but he needs to find the killer pass, a bit of a more creative threat imo.

Hopefully it will happen.

Another solid 7/10 performance from Forshaw coming into a team short on form, winning mentality & confidence

Forshaw completed 43 passes v BC, more than any other player from either side. He also completed 84:6 of his passes, the highest % of any Leeds player
