100% has to start. I don’t care how he fits in to the team, just put him in there.

I agree.
You can't fault Bamford's work rate this season but we need end product.
We have to know if Eddie can cut it in Bielsa's system.
I personally think he would have 8-10 goals by now if he had started every game.
Eddie is a natural finisher just like the likes of Ian Wright, Thierry Henry, Gary Lineker etc
All of those just knew what position to take up and were blessed with pace. Lineker in particular hardly ever scored from outside of the 18 yard box.
Eddie's not at their level yet but he has the potential to be.

All this bs about systems ...these players have been at the club for months so if they don't know what is required of them by now they never will so it's down to Bielsa to throw in Eddie to see if he can cut it or not .. otherwise back to Arsenal he trots and barn door bamford can come back .

I think Eddie can do everything Bamford can do but adds movement pace and an eye for goal...
I wanted to flash this watch, I flash it all the time. It's my antique pocket watch and it makes me look British...and I need that for my analysis. It is a gorgeous gold pocket watch however and I'm very proud of it. You see my grandfather, on his death bed, ..sold me this watch!

The obvious option is to use Bamford as a SS/10 and Nketiah to play in front, especially with the injuries atm. But Bielsa would rather stick Dallas at CM.

Could Eddie be our regular penalty taker if he can find his way into the Leeds first team

Definitely, really hope we give Eddie more minutes after the international break. I like Bamford but Eddie offers a totally different threat pace and very good finishing. I would like to see us rotate between the two, against teams that play a high line Eddie is an excellent option look at the impact he made vs Brentford and Barnsley against the high line. Think the main issue could be fitness to play our system from the start can he press and hold up play for 90 minutes? Either way with the fact PB hasn’t scored in 6 and the whole team has scored just 5 goals in that time it would be nice to see more rotation.
Also a keen Barcelona supporter since 2004-2005 (when they were average.)

Eddie notches for the U21s again this evening. Surely he will start for us soon?

Scored twice and had one ruled offside.

His second was a lovely header.

Just goes to show us what a decent striker Nketiah is when the delivery into the box is decent

The majority of crosses are hit into box aimlessly with no accuracy whatsoever.

All Eddie's Leeds goals have come from crosses but they are few or between for our strikers

Yet Bamford will be picked on Saturday instead and we'll drop more points because of it.

At least he should feel right at home after the penalty miss though I suppose.
