Re: Stuart Dallas

I think it is more likely that it would be a case of Dallas being back up in central midfield only if really needed. At present with Forsahw injured it wouldn't be feasible for the club to simply go out and get someone of his quality to come here as 3 or 4th choice. As such you need in the squad to ...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wed 15th Aug)

Afternoon Weasel, regarding playing ugly, its the Championship. Look at the kind of players we used the last time we went up to the promised land. Kammy Vinnie Baird Blake A young Batty We used to batter our opposition. Wilko knew what was needed to get out of the division. No coincidence that the ...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wed 15th Aug)

Is Saiz back to his best? What went wrong with him after Christmas? Yes. There were a few things that contributed to Saiz being less influential as the season wore on. Firstly when he came into the team the other team's really didn't know much about him - after a few matches of him being brilliant ...

I wasn't going through all the players more just the new signings and a special mention to Saiz as he was back to his mercurial best

Re: Leeds United v Bolton Wanderers - League Cup, Official matchday thread

I'm glad our 'little-off-colour 2nd half" was in the Cup not the league. It would have been nice for Saiz, Klich, Roofe and Alioski not to have been needed today to keep them fresh - also to give the 'reserves' more confidence. Delighted that that second half happened as it will hopefully stop comp...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tue 14th Aug)

How will the players react to a cold Wednesday night fixture against lets say QPR where you have to grind out a 1-0 win? That we do not know. Don't forget that even after some bad results the team still showed class at times. The away win at Bristol when we blitzed them after a bad run of form, the...

Re: Ben Stokes....

It is more about what the term affray relates to as it is very peculiar. It is all about if others, i.e. those not involved in the fisticuffs, felt unsafe. To a large degree all the stuff about him being drunk, throwing punches, knocking someone out out is irrelevant to the charge. The whole case ne...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tue 14th Aug)

I agree with Dalton - last season we were all very excited after the start we made but the key to this side will be how they respond when they lose a match. Last season we never really recovered after the Millwall defeat and after looking invincible at times prior to that we suddenly looked like a t...

Re: Hopes for Carabao Cup

Only game I'm missing due to my busy lifestyle between now & the middle of September Always want Leeds to win however it wouldn't worry me if we are knocked out of the EFL Cup although I reckon with Bielsa now at the helm we could go really well & surprise a few prem teams in this competition I kno...

Re: Bielsa

No matter how much the player values increased the club would be worth far more if sold as a premiership club - and the players values would increase to if we were selling as a premiership club too.

Re: Derby County versus Leeds United Official match day thread

But nobody expected us to tear two of the promotion favourites apart in the manner that we have, now we can rest a bit for the next game in the cup vs Bolton and hopefully we will be comfortably good enough to beat Rotherham. Will be very interesting to see how we do v Rotherham because we are usua...

Re: Bailey Peacock-Farrell

I've no problem with BPF in goal, as I said in the matchday commentary a lot of good keepers would have struggled with that. Lets not forget Butland a senior England keeper screwed up last week, it happens. Weidwald made simpler errors and would never collect cleanly. Plus it got to him. He's young...

Re: Bailey Peacock-Farrell

Would expect Blackman to start in the cup, regardless of the mistake. It is then up to him to impress. In some regards our early results last season disguised FW's shortcomings and as you say there is the danger of a repeat. Still not sure about BPF.

Re: Derby County versus Leeds United Official match day thread

The one thing I don't like about the fans attitude is when they start singing Leeds Leeds are falling apart again It is supposed to be ironic and funny but when we do play badly the opposition fans then start singing it and it it then has the most devastating demoralising effect. I wish Bielsa woul...

Re: Derby County versus Leeds United Official match day thread

A complete performance. Even better than last week. Apart from the quality of our football what impressed me was the willingness to make themselves available for a pass. Whoever has the ball always had options to pass to. It shows a great confidence in themselves, not hiding away to avoid getting t...

Re: Derby County versus Leeds United Official match day thread

The big difference for me is Bielsa has managed in South America, which is incredibly intimidating, so he will know how to handle Millwall away better. Another big plus is that it will be the same group of players that went to Millwall last year so there will be no surprises for them. I think the i...

Re: Derby County versus Leeds United Official match day thread

We started this well last season and soon crumbled so let's see.... Hope bielsa considers replacing BPF with Blackman if Blackman plays well this week against Bolton as BPF had a howler with that goal today. Jansson should replace Berardi too. But heck what a performance! Played so well and saw the...
