Re: Leeds United v Fulham FC - MATCH THREAD - Cooper & Rodrigo in for Struijk & Hernandez

i'm obviously a leeds fan and I think it's a penalty and we'd be going mental if that wasn't given the other end but does it really matter? the whole incident was totally avoidable if Koch had just stayed on his feet, why would you even take a risk like that? It was avoidable, Costa should have tra...

Re: Helder Costa

1307352012221231105 Early days but all 3 goal contributions from Mr Frothy this season have been top class. The pass for Klich and his 2 goals today all brilliant. Great weight on the pass. Great control and composure for the volley and brilliant technique for the 2nd (anyone whose played football ...

Re: Leeds United v Fulham FC - MATCH THREAD - Cooper & Rodrigo in for Struijk & Hernandez

That angle from behind to me looks like Bryan puts his right boot out to force contact?

Koch was definitely trying to pull out (hehe) but definitely the shot from behind makes me think Joe Bryan was determined to make contact.

Re: Rodrigo as a 10

He played as sort of a ten in a front 2 for Valencia with Maxi Gomez. Definitely capable. He will be fine, needs some time, its not mentioned much but before his games for Spain he had been injured since the beginning of February. Think you can see he is class, his movement, little touches, could de...

Re: Leeds United v Fulham FC - MATCH THREAD - Cooper & Rodrigo in for Struijk & Hernandez

Playing against better teams really reduces the margin for error too. We could get away with a lot more last year than we will this year It does although it was acceptable against Liverpool but not against Fulham. There are teams in this league whose entire plan is to sit back and nick the ball dur...

Re: Leeds United v Fulham FC - MATCH THREAD - Cooper & Rodrigo in for Struijk & Hernandez

One concern and one of the reasons i think we look dodgy defensively.

We arent passing it as accurately..
In our system if your passing isnt on point you automatically are vulnerable.

We need to pass the ball better or we will be picked off.

Re: Leeds United v Fulham - 4-3 MOTM

Costa- Two beautiful finishes, where was this composure last season. He has looked every inch a Premier League player in his 2 games. Bamford- Same as Costa, played really well, held the ball up, linked play and a really composed finish. Klich- A beautiful player, wouldn't swap him for any other box...

Re: Leeds United v Fulham FC - MATCH THREAD - Cooper & Rodrigo in for Struijk & Hernandez

Feel sorry for Koch, thought he played well, best of the back 4 imo. Our left hand side was poor today and imo Meslier should have done better for all of the goals. Costa looks every inch a Premier league player and Paddy to based on today, both of them were superb. Klich was good to but imo we were...

Re: Leeds United v Fulham FC - MATCH THREAD - Cooper & Rodrigo in for Struijk & Hernandez

Thank god for that. Pleased to get the win. Costa and Paddy were great. But far to open, the need for a proper 10 was clear, needed someone to control the game as it wore on. Left back to and a goalie imo, Meslier should have done better on all 3 goals. Fulham had more shots than us you wont survive...

Re: Leeds United v Fulham FC - MATCH THREAD - Cooper & Rodrigo in for Struijk & Hernandez

Think Koch is just desperate to impress and wants to be 1st to everything.

Shame because he has made 2 really important defensive contributions.

Hector header and when Mitrovic was about to shoot.

Rodders will score, i have a feeling

Nah mate, a 17 year old winger whose just signed a professional contract with Burton will do for me :)

Having your own youth players coming through is great but only when they are ready.

Majority of ours (almost all) arent.

Re: Premiership 2020/21

Liverpool have finally confirmed the signing of Thiago. Liverpool also interested in Wolves attacker Diogo Jota. Wolves are close to signing 18 year old Liverpool youth cb Ki-Jana Hoever for around £10mil. The 18 year old has barely kicked a ball at senior level. Spurs are close to announcing the £3...

Re: Rodrigo de Paul - RUMOUR

Personally i dont think Udinese are being unreasonable in asking for £36mil. I think we are trying to get him on the cheap whereas £36mil for what he is is a fair price. From reading about De Paul the closest comparison i can think of is Jack Grealish. To give Grealish credit i doubted him in the EP...
