I stopped reading the YEP a long while ago as it was apparent very early that Graham Smyth may watch football but he doesn't really understand it.

Re: Up to 5 signings

We just need to clone Dallas for all the weaker positions. Its looking like Brighton may be getting dragged into the relegation dog fight. If they do go down the 'Bring Back Ben' campaign will get a boost for the DM back-up. Players like Dallas are priceless for a Bielsa squad. If we buy a new left...

Re: MB Post Villa

Bielsa analyses the performance rather than the result and as such it takes the emotion out of it. If Southampton scored early it becomes a different game, similarly if Villa had taken 1 of their chances against us at Villa Park we don't win 3-0. The performances may not differ greatly but the resul...

Re: MB Post Villa

I'd rather plan for next year by giving u23s a chance, not players who've proven time and time again that they're not good enough. I would rather let Bielsa judge and if he sees something in Roberts that warrants further assessment then so be it. It could be argued, and certainly was by many, that ...

Re: MB Post Villa

Re: Tyler Roberts

My opinion the last few games, he's trying too hard and snatching at the ball, knows he needs to make an impression and it's adding unnecessary pressure. Still think he's worth persevering with, accounting for his age. I think he knows he has to make an impression and it might be affecting him, try...

Re: Up to 5 signings

Given the amount of running Harrison does in every match, especially the defensive side, and I am not surprised he has had a couple of flat performances. Last season was his first as a regular starter, then when you throw in the covid thing and he had to stay at peak fitness when we weren't playing ...

Re: Up to 5 signings

I think we need an injection of reality when we talk about replacing the likes of Ayling. The next level involves clubs that spend up to 50 million on full backs, and pays them up to 200k a week. Even a "selling club" like Leicester will spend 20 million plus on a full back and pay them the bones o...

Re: Championship 2020/2021

Brentford really do blow hot and cold - a great run then 3 losses on the bounce. They got to the top and then the wheels come off - is it just that they can't handle the pressure and are better when chasing?

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 22nd February) - Meslier's agony piles on Leeds pressure

I agree with Faaip on this one - VAR actually got it right in that Bamford was offside. You have to draw the line somewhere otherwise it will always be contentious. I would agree 100% with those that say just use the foot rather than all other body parts as it makes it far simpler to have a clear li...

Re: Wolves v Leeds Utd Match Thread - Roberts in for Alioski, Llorente makes the bench

Bielsa must have seen the same things in Robert's performance against Arsenal I did ;-) Or maybe with the threat of relegation fairly minimal and Pablo leaving at the end of the season it now gives Bielsa a chance to have a look at Roberts and decide whether he is worth keeping or not. Personally I...

Re: Beating a high press.

The flip side I suppose in these situations is that the opposition will have at least 3 of their players occupied in closing Meslier down and so consequently there will be more space elsewhere for our players to exploit on a counter attack. That is the crux. Beat the high press with a good pass and...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Friday 19th February) - Kinnear plans to turn Elland Road into World Class Stadium

Not been the biggest fan of Cooper, but he's impressed me recently. Is it just me, or has he upped his game the last few weeks? For me there is no problem with Cooper. Put Cooper in a settled defence and we will be fine. I don't think he will ever fully win some fans over but he is more than capabl...

I don't think we'd have any problems filling 50,000 tbh. Thats a tall order on our current capacity! The rows are so condensed currently that I'm amazed more people don't fall forward whilst going to their seats! I would hope that any new stands could be built in such a way that there is ample leg ...

Sometimes commonsense dictates, and you just have to launch the bloody thing, pratting around can be costly. Yes it can but you can apply that same logic to the defence, midfielders etc. But it is the continued repetition of playing it out of defence that is key to it working, it can't just happen ...

Sometimes you have no choice to boot it down the middle, all PL keepers do it when there are no other options.
