I cant see how you can rate them do high for a 1-0.
I was actually thinking at half time it'd stay 0-0 with those conditions, looked hellish out there. Got to credit the clean sheet if nothing else.

Re: Leeds Utd v Reading Match Thread - Bielsa names unchanged line-up

Good solid piece of work, that. Another clean sheet, another 3 points. Starting to look more like the Leeds of the first half of the season.

And that's the point isn't it, he's managing us like he has years to complete his task. Why I think he's here if we stays down next season, it's be the honorable thing to do Agreed. Reading up on the specifics, his short tenures at other clubs seemed to invariably boil down to the clubs either pani...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 19th February) With 13 games to go, how many pts needed to go up?

When I look at the Bristol game there were two or three instances where Bristol were not able to park the bus in front of goal... Bamford slips and recovers and passes a delicious ball to Harrison but his cross is missed by Costa... and then Dallas slips the ball through to Costa who has only the k...

JKA has the potential to be anything.
This is exactly it. If Bielsa can do for Kev what he's done for the other lads we could well have a powerful weapon in the battle to stay up next season.

Bamford is not to blame for the lack of goals. Ten men in the box defending is the reason it is difficult to score. You need a pinball wizard to score in those circumstances. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200219/ec47eb93e29b2d6843a008d15e2ee101.jpg Sent from my SM-G903F using Tapatalk True Rab...

Re: Is This Our Best XI ?

The accusation leveled at Leeds is that regardless of possession and creating chances we are unable to put the ball in the back of the net and the blame often gets laid at Bamford's door, but the truth of the matter is if a team plants 10 men in the box then it is extremely difficult to score, as w...

Re: Is This Our Best XI ?

Roberts produces nowhere near the assists/goals Hernandez does. Amazing how Pablo at his age is more fitter than Tyler. It is remarkable, and Pablo for sure deserves a place in the annals of Leeds United legends in my opinion. It's a bit unfair however to judge Roberts's ability and potential, much...

Re: Championship 19/20

Valid point 64 , I am not even considering them as I think they'll win it anyway and they can certainly help us out on few occasions when they play those just below us.

Re: Is This Our Best XI ?

I don't think Roberts improves the team As for Augustin & Poveda they are not fit to start therefore both will only make sub appearances at best Agree to disagree on Roberts then, I think we look dangerous whenever he's on the pitch...all five minutes of it. That's why I said the potential is there...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 18th February) - Leeds are in good shape mentally and physically

Good point Harry. There are a couple I'd comfortably see the back of, like Forshaw and Douglas. Not that I necessarily think they're poor players but we've had so little need of them whether through form or fitness that we just wouldn't miss them if they went. Regards the tiredness, another whole ye...

Re: Is This Our Best XI ?

Can't argue with our defensive solidity and attacking power whilst fielding that lineup and the results reflect it. Given our form since December it's easy to forget we would go into a game and feel confident of not only winning it but shutting the opposition out completely, but we did exactly that ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 17th February) - Leeds get back to winning ways in style

I'm thinking of a career change. Seems there's good money to be made in browsing Tw@ter, emailing the most common opinions to some non-entity clickbait site with the word sport in the heading and passing them off as my own. That's got to be the most random, baffling piece of baseless conjecture I've...

Re: Leeds Utd v Bristol City Match Thread - Unchanged Starting XI, Roberts returns to the bench

Did say a few weeks ago Dallas needed to go revert to the back four, a much better defender than Douglas & the blonde bombshell who caused absolute mayhem! Yes indeed, Ali has a proven track record of effectiveness as an impact sub for Jack anyway and Dallas looked in his element again at LB. Hopef...

Re: Leeds Utd v Bristol City Match Thread - Unchanged Starting XI, Roberts returns to the bench

13 cup finals to go, looks like a low points tally will gain promotion. Fulham have an absolutely horrible run-in with some tough fixtures and local derbies in the mix as well. Brentford & Forest only have a slightly better run-in than them. Ours is far easier ....on paper ! Given the fixtures of t...

Re: Leeds Utd v Bristol City Match Thread - Unchanged Starting XI, Roberts returns to the bench

I watched the game. We were brilliant but we have been several times this season regardless of the final result. If Wells took his chance then people wouldn't be saying great performance just moaning about chances missed etc. The Derby performance was at least on a par but because we drew 1-1 peopl...

Does feel as though we turned a corner this week.

I hope.
I think the clean sheet will do us wonders. If this is the start of a positive run then it's come at the best possible time.

Let's smash these last dozen games now and get promoted. The worst is behind us.

Clean sheet, gap widened, rough patch ending. Good stuff.
