Re: Samu Saiz

Leeds have allowed the unsettled Saiz to return home to Spain to join Getafe on loan from January 1 with a view to making the move permanent in the summer. It is understood they will receive a loan fee of close to £500,000 plus £5.8million when the transfer becomes permanent. Saiz, 27, cost Leeds ar...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate ( Fri 21st Dec)

Not missing Ekuban While we would obviously be looking at strengthening the squad if we were promoted it's difficult to tell who is good enough and who isn't. Many of the players who were successful under O'Leary for example were also part of the squad that got relegated, yet individually they were...

Re: Aston Villa v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Hutton looks vulnerable fro Villa, and their defence does not look too great
Stoke had lots of lots of chances on goal... if we get as many, we might just nick it.

Re: Aston Villa v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Under Bruce Villa were misfiring. With the appointment of Dean Smith from Brentford he has been able to tune the Villa engine so it is firing on all cylinders. It is amazing what a good manager can do for a team, and saying that we have one of the best. It will be a tight game away from home and it ...

Re: The secrets of Marcelo

fascinating reading that 64. Any human could have been sceptical at first but sitting at the top of the table around Christmas and a real chance of automatic promotion at least means all players buy into his theories as they clearly work I sometimes think that football players are not the sharpest ...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Mon 17th Dec)

Reporters like to stir things up, and ask Bielsa awkward questions like what does he think of Saiz moving to Spain? Bielsa refuses to be drawn into any speculation about Samu's form past or present, he refuses to talk about mental health or depression, his lips are sealed regarding Samu's wife's pre...

Re: Bolton v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Alioski has been in a poor run of form for some time now, Guess that is why Bielsa has picked him for every single game this season and he has been ever present. How could Bielsa be so stupid for making such an elementary mistake. Sack him. his last very good game was at Norwich back in the autumn,...

Re: Bolton v Leeds Utd Match Thread

I would like to see Ayling, Berardi or Dallas back at the RB position and Shackelton replacing Baker in the midfield. He may not be a silverbooted trickster like Saiz but he had poop coming out the pants of the Bolton defenders when he was running straight at them. Samu would always cut across field...

Maybe Bolton should have had a pen there as Forshaw and Phillips screw up
He is too lazy on the ball and he either gets robbed or makes a bad back pass

Re: Bolton v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Forshaw and Baker are dwelling on the ball too long and getting robbed. Only Douglas and Shackleton have looked dangerous going forward. Roofe getting no service. Pontus putting his foot in everywhere. Their Goalie is FAT and has a silly name... centre backs cumbersome. Baker and Alioski to be taken...

That was a good read. So often we reduce everything to the brass and ambition, and that is what we tend to concentrate on, forgetting about family, cancer scares, losts babies, and new pregnancies. Samu is human with human emotions, and we as fans tend to forget that sometimes, since it is all about...
