Looks a nasty and easy to beat formation to me, is it a glorified 541?
I'm assuming it's wing backs. That could translate to 5-2-3

3-3-1-3 Squad Needs

I have to admit that I don't know much about this formation, but I'm assuming the middle 3 is actually RWB, DM, LWB - the other roles being fairly obvious. That said I think it brings a new hope for guys like Anita and Dallas as WB's. On the other hand, it looks like bad news for our overload of mid...

Re: Marcelo Bielsa

It's a great coup. Glad it finally happened. I'm sure a big part of the negotiations would have been over player wage and salary budget and hopefully that's going to mean some good quality signings coming in. I' sure quite a few will be on their way out too as several don't seem to fit his formation...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thur 24 May)

Kristian Pedersen Looks like another Laurens De Bock signing. Assuming De Bock is on his way out because they didn't offer Pearce a contract to make him third in line. Personally I'd have used DeB and Pearce as my 2 LB's next year. Hopefully this guy is an upgrade on DeB. I don't think there's a pl...

Re: San Francisco Forty Niners buy 10% of LUFC

This can only be a good thing. First of all we got cash in the bank that Radz said will be spent on the first team. Longer term the 49ers are an excellent organization. They're not the Montana/Rice/Young team of the 80's and 90's but they did go to the super bowl a couple of years ago and they have ...

Re: England World Cup Squad 2018

Welbeck is a surprise and completely undeserved. I hear the comments about guys like Jones and Cahill but we need some experience in defence. I probably would have considered Smalling for the same reason. Only other issue I have is the lack of depth in center midfield. Dier and Henderson have to pla...

He's alright, but along way away from being a regular next season. I'd have preferred to see Sam Dalby start ahead of Ekuban instead, to see if he's ready yet.
My thoughts exactly. I have high optimism for Edmo. But you'd think Clarke and Dalby were closer to making an impact.

Not on the plane?

We knew ahead of time that several of the players wouldn't be going to Myanmar for personal or injury reasons. I wonder if we can read anything into some of the fringe players not going: Wiedwald - obviously Berardi - just missed the last 5 games Sacko - Cbicki - O'Kane - Benefit of doubt, I think h...

Re: Kemar Roofe

He's got great pace. I just don't think he fills any one position 100%. I think he's a great squad player, he just needs to find his place. He could be a Troy Deeney playing off a main striker. Or he should be a great fit on the left flank. He just needs to mature and find his best position. In the ...

Re: Ronaldo Vieira

Back to Ronaldo Vieira .... It seems everyone thinks he's a class player except Leeds fans (the majority at least). Holloway said after the game that he was a class above everyone else. Still I remember going to Leeds games and hearing Gary Speed constantly get slaughtered by the fans. How can a pla...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Mon 7 May)

Good Morning Everyone Good morning Ayling Not a coincidence. We have cover with Berardi, but since he missed 10 games through suspension and spent most of his playing time at LB, we didn't have any reliable back up. If Lewie Coyle had been here, Ayling might not have been missed so much. Problems a...

Re: Mateusz Klich

He's said this morning that he's on his way back, has 2 years on his contract and unfinished businesses. It sounds to me like he's had some reassurances that Leeds still want him. It would make sense because he's the kind of creative midfielder we've been missing. And there's an even bigger case sin...

Re: Ryan Edmondson

I think the only thing that surprises me is how he quickly he jumped ahead of Dalby and Clarke into a first team debut. Edmundson is a class act for sure, but will he be part of the first team squad next year? I think he only played one game for the 23s didnt he? With the other two I thought they wo...

Really mature and class act for a young kid. Hard to believe he's 16 when you watch and listen to him. Glad to hear how many times he mentions he's a Leeds fan

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thur 3 May)

Good morning Ell Heckingbottom? It would be nice to know. If PH has the support then we could all get behind him -fans and players. Why haven't Radz or Orta said anything publicly? Charlie Taylor? Wouldn't take him back given the way he left - sitting out the last game. We'd never be able to afford ...
