Best CB we've had at Leeds since Radebe.

White has decent qualities, good on the floor but not great under pressure in the air. Ben is not a goal threat at set-pieces too, I'll be surprised if he scores a goal for Leeds this season.

Letting Bartley out of grasp wasn't clever too!
no use crying over spilled milk .
good championship defender but its all water under the bridge .
hopefully tomorrow night he scores an og gives away a pen and then gets himself sent off !

Just riles me our owners over many years sell our best players & rarely replace them with players of a similar quality, some are never replaced.....the list is endless.

I wonder which average plodders we'll come in for Phillips & Hernandez if we don't go up :duno:

Whilst I only agree with some of your posts I am always interested to reads your views as I feel you generally have good insights and don't just rush to post without thinking things through or letting emotion cloud better judgement.

I enjoy posts with raw emotion.

Emotion is what following a football club is all about!

Ditto, I feel I'm middle ground. Not entirely convinced by Bielsa, thinking he may have gotten things wrong at times. So not a in Bielsa we trust side ..nor am I wanting him to go or thinking if we fail he will absolutely walk away. I'd hope he stays, we never stop learning and I hope he still is learning

I do a lot of college scouting including a bit for a small scouting site but mostly for dynasty where I play a few money leagues for American football players entering the NFL. I make judgments on players all the time based on metrics, record, injury history, attitude and game speed/ability (trust me there's a difference to training well/hard and playing well in games.)

I absolutely think I can apply such things to rating/accessing football players, the more attributes they have the likelier they will be successful at what they do..That's how I reach my conclusions on players..After that it's down to usage and coaching. Good players fail with poor coaching or being used wrongly. Very rarely vice versa. The talent has to be there to start with
