We can score 2/3 goals in 45 minutes, with some half-time Bielsa propulsion.

What!!!! Only seen once but how is Bamford offside there? If him pointing where he wants the ball played is offside then what's the point?

After the first 10 minutes i thought we controlled the game. We were done by 2 worldies and a fluke. Sounds about right for Leeds doesn't it? Palace have been ordinary, just clinical with their few chances. Bamford took both goals really well to give us hope second half, he looks back on it today.

I just hope this is not turning into one of those spells. We need more invention from the wings. Neither Costa or Harrison seem to drive to the byline like Zaha did for them in the first few minutes.

We are not doing alot wrong yet find ourselves 3-1 behind. Just Ayling and Dallas not quite at the races for me first half. Plenty to play for, we just need a bit of luck to go our way in something for a change.

Meslier gets fouled in the build up for the first goal and can’t get across.

He's got to pull Strujik at half time. No fault of his own, he was having a decent game. Get Raphinha on.

I’d consider benching him for a bit, give Raphinha a run of games.
Raphinha is miles better. Now that we've stepped up a level, MB needs to accept we need better players. They can't say they haven't had a chance, as they have, and some aren't the quality needed.

Bielsa needs to swallow his pride and think about backing the squad up with proven quality, likes of Struijk won't cut it in this league.

Irrespective of 'luck' that's now 7 goals conceded in our last two games and counting. Palace aren't that great tbh, but at times they are cutting right through us. Our defence looks well shakey, and having such a small squad in the PL isn't going to cut it. Other than Raphinha, there's no real quality on the bench.

Point I was making about the hand: If your foot, head or chest are offside you're stealing an advantage. Since the hand can't be used to play the ball, then it can't possibly be considered to be offside

Harsh is it sounds i would prefer a more experienced number 1.

I think Meslier has done well given his age but a newly promoted side needs a totally reliable goalie.

I think his inexperience shows some times

I think we need Struijk to back up Klich defensively, we can't afford to concede again.

Good point made on the Beeb.

I thought that on Meslier, but I kept taking my eyes off the replay to see what was happening between Dann and our 2 CB's. Still need to get another look

Cooper coming back in. Hopefully Llorente can start soon.
