Re: Leeds United v Hull City - MATCH THREAD - Bielsa makes eleven changes

Post by Norm »

Reference last years' cup games, they absolutely didn't matter. Someone mentioned that we've now had 2 defeats this season and it's unacceptable (or words to that effect). Did we all see the manner of that first defeat - we played superbly and deserved to draw or even win. On that scintillating showing we're a match for anybody in this league. For this EFL Cup match, maybe Marcelo just wants to know what happens with his selected second string players when they're thrown in the deep end. We trusted him to get us promoted and he did. I think we should trust him a while longer because I honestly believe he does know what he's doing.

Unless, alternatively, we are hinting there are now ER vacancies for extra fan 'advisers' because he's obviously reached his dotage and is too confused to cross the road (or pitch) by himself?

Not good enough. Bielsa to blame 100%.
I promise to be positive only for 20/21 :)

Well Bielsa didnt want it, obviously. Could have thrown Bamford and Harrison on for last 20 minutes. Chose not to. Shame. I'd have liked to have seen a cup run, but Bielsa didn't see it as important. No complaints. But disappointed

Bielsa didnt risk one of his starting XI, not even as a late sub. But let's be honest - Rodrigo, Douglas, Casilla, Roberts, Shackleton, Alioski, Poveda. The team we picked should have won this game easily
