I notice the mighty Leeds are in play off position in the "First Half" league season whereas fighting relegation in the "Second Half"

so in theory the Leeds team could be 2 leagues apart come May

Wonder what the odds are the double result HT/FT Leeds/Villa
My my my, such a lot of guns around town and so few brains

They wouldn't be my choices Cjay but tbh Hecky isn't on a level playing field with not one defender or keeper that started the season.

It was bad enough losing Bartley & Taylor at the end of last season but to lose Jansson, Ayling, Berardi with no back-up of Cooper, Pennington & De Bock is a crazy situation. I've never known our whole recognised defence unavailable in the 55 years I've supported Leeds.

If we getaway with a battering tonight it will be a bl**dy miracle
He hasnt recently but when he arrived he had so dont think that can be used as an excuse.

He could have been brave, played the kids, we may still have lost but it would have shown some bravery.

He went for the safe option and it was wrong.

O'Kane fit again though and Struijk on the bench

Can't really criticise his team selection, He didn't have a full strength squad when he arrived either. I could point to a player or two that should have started but I could every game with TC too, especially Klich.

Playing a young left back then dropping him for 2 players to play out of position who were awful every game?

Not playing Saiz tonight?

Dropping Hugo Diaz totally after he did ok vs Preston?

Playing O'Kane again and again and again when he wasnt justifying his selection?

Playing O'Kane and Philips vs Boro when everyone knew it wouldn't work then subbing Ali and Phillips at half time because he had messed up then dropping Ali altogether for the next game to try and justify it?

I agree on Klich.

Also prefer Struijk over Pennington.

Pennington has had plenty of chances to show he isnt good enough.

And the baffling decisions continue - let's play an on-loan defender that has shown he isn't good enough instead of one of our players. Must have ran out of right footed players and midfielders to play at left back - surprised he didn't start O'Kane and played Vieira at left back.

How do you know we aren't planning on signing Pennington?

Bullshit take.

None of them have any credibility after spouting that garbage.

Missed it but people saying they said we should get rid of Hernandez and Saiz? Always makes sense to get rid of your best players.

Early shot from Ali and a reasonable first 5 mins.

Pearce does well to block out Snodgrass - good early stuff from our young fb
