Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 1st March) Early goal sinks Leeds

Byebye - I think that if one component of the system malfunctions then the whole system is prone to malfunctioning badly or even breaking down completely. I guess it's part and parcel of the concept of 'total football. ' Apparently MB was heavily influenced in his youth by the Dutch concept of ' to...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 2nd March) Leeds identify Amorim as possible Bielsa replacement

P.S.

I don’t want to tempt fate by speculating about Marcelo Bielsa’s future, although I do understand that the club have to.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 2nd March) Leeds identify Amorim as possible Bielsa replacement

As a fan for well over 50 years I’ve seen plenty of unjust scorelines but that’s Leeds United and that’s what happens, whether we love it or not is a moot point Elland! 😂 When we have Koch, Llorente, Cooper and Struijk all fit they won’t all be able to play so it’ll be interesting to see which partn...

Excellent discussion chaps (and Chapesses). I suppose it’s true to say that there are “lies, damned lies and statistics”, as we all know they can be twisted any which way to confirm any hypothesis required. My initial opinions are always based on the impression I form from watching a game, sometimes...

Re: The Leeds United Weekend Breakfast Debate - Leeds v Villa

1. Yes I’d play Costa. I think Jackie needs a break to recharge the batteries. 2. It certainly helps having Llorente available but I still think we are nowhere near as good a team without Phillips. 3. There’s no doubt that Grealish is their main man and I’m glad he’s not playing. They rely on Greali...

Re: Peter Lorimer

There is also a rumour that Mick Bates is seriously ill with stomach cancer, but we will have to wait for confirmation on that one. A fine squad player, who never left the club when courted by other big sides. Fantastic cover for Bremner and Giles, and an excellent player in his own right. Mick Bat...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Friday 26th February) Bielsa keen on Nkoulou reunion

We’ve not seen much of Rodrigo so far this season so in that respect I don’t think we’ve seen the best of him. He’s shown a bit of promise despite not having played in his favoured position but, of course, we’ve had no where near our money’s worth so far. In the games he has played he’s made some cl...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 25th February) - Leeds United expecting up to five new arrivals this summer

I wouldn’t be be surprised at 5 new arrivals in the summer but I would imagine it would be a couple for the 1st team and 2 or 3 for the under 23s/occasional bench. Can’t make my mind up on Costa having just seen him have a major impact on our latest victory. His speed is electrifying which could ups...

Re: Reasons to be Cheerful

A few reasons to be cheerful: We are all but safe in Premier League with nearly a 3rd of the season still to go. We are playing the best and most watchable football that we’ve played for at least 20 years, and a lot more watchable than most other teams in this division. Looks like Bielsa is going to...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 24th February) - Rampant Leeds add to Southampton's misery

Tella cheated simple as that, definite booking for simulation.

Llorente did well throughout but also a big shout out to both Roberts and Costa, who have both taken a bit of stick from fans recently, me included.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 23rd February) Juve willing to let Costa join Leeds but only for swap deal

We’ve already got one Costa who is really not pulling up any trees why would we want another? But seriously what advantage would it be for us to swap Rodrigo, who is showing a little bit of promise, for someone who is surplus to requirements and therefore deemed not good enough to play for Juventus?...

Re: Leeds Utd v Southampton Match thread

If Phillips wasn't playing I predicted a loss against Wolves which turned out to be the case unfortunately. But as it turned out we played well enough to deserve at least a draw if not a win, even without Phillips. So on the supposition that we can't be so unlucky twice in a row (or can we?), I'm go...

No sleight intended Elland but perhaps a bit overly dramatic. You might "crash" to your 5th consecutive defeat but surely not your 2nd 🙂

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

How can the offside rule be simplified to make the decision making easier? An excellent idea that has been put forward on this forum previously by a couple of very intelligent posters’ is that offsides should only be decided by the positions of the players’ feet. This would certainly help the decisi...
