Re: Phillips or Vieira ?

I think he would have thrived, was always better defensively then Phillips and despite the jokes about his passing his passing stats have always been better then Phillips. Vieira averaged 80% in his 1st season and 79% last season. Phillips had 72% and 76%. Given how he improved i think Vieira would...

Re: Phillips or Vieira ?

You keep crediting Phillips for one or two games which isn't true, he has been the model of consistency. As so many fans who i travel with say Phillips is a contender for player of the season. I agree with my fellow fans along with Klich, Hernandez, Roofe & Jansson, KP is a serious contender Up to ...

Re: Leeds Utd v Nottingham Forest Match Thread

I hope not Dezzy Why would Bielsa start Harrison after his poor performance v Ipswich ? surely Marcelo wasn't impressed You wouldn’t think so would you, doesn’t warrant a start, but you would think whoever does the presser plays? Is Douglas back? If he is you would imagine Harrison would be in the ...

Re: After playing Leeds......

I wasn't saying it from the how good are they point of view More that the other countries just love to try and stick it to the English. You only have to look at the abuse Jones got after the Scots game. And they won! That was disgusting. Ah if that’s the case, it’s every sport! England, USA Austral...

Re: After playing Leeds......

England are everybodies scalp in the six nations. Apart from maybe Italy. Every team ups their game against England. Even Aus and the Springboks. Anyone who says otherwise is kidding themselves. Same with Leeds You do realize how poor of a team they have become? Don’t get me wrong, it’s great fun b...

He could but he is much better in that sweeping role at the back.

Re: Phillips or Vieira ?

Widely reported we were touting Vieira around all summer. I'm sure Bielsa knew that. When Viera left Bielsa expressed disappointment, but yeah the club were keen to sell an asset to get some cash, one of the bigger mistakes, when you consider Forshaw and Klich aren’t natural defensive midfielders a...

I almost think their mindset is "we sugned him so dont want to spend 50 grand on a bench warmer" whether or not he is the best man for the job
No way were paying him 50 grand, doubt Bielsa is just playing him for the sake of it, fully fit squad he’s on the bench

Re: Phillips or Vieira ?

Last I read he wasn't getting much game time but the club were happy the way he is progressing in training, they said he wasn't bought for this season. Was sorry to see him leave, definitely think he'll be one in the future that we'll be saying" can't believe we let him go". Tbh I dont want to draw...

Re: Phillips or Vieira ?

Phillips has improved under Bielsa and credit for that. However as Ges said there is no reason Vieira wouldn't have done the same. Vieira was an asset we had who others wanted, Phillips wasnt which is an indication imo. Vieira has more natural talent and is a few years younger. Decorated youth inte...

How is Ronaldo getting on it Italy? Would have loved to have seen him develop the same way as Phillips, certainly had the talent

Believe me Im not but he has 50m in the bank and still only a kid so doubt a few Leeds tweets will upset him too much. Imagine he pays someone to read and edit his tweets anyway
He’s a massive Derby fan, he knew what he was getting into, a bit of fun from both sides

Re: After playing Leeds......

Interesting Stat. You do get the impression teams view it like some kind of cup final. The BIG game. Its like laying England in the 6 nations. They hate the whites Like playing England in the 6 nations?? England are nobodies scalp anymore. As for the above stat, take it with a pinch of salt, but no...

Think we'll go back to 4-1-4-1 vs Forest.

Bielsa only plays 3 at the back if the opponent plays 2 up top.

Forest play just Grabban.

BPF

Ayling
Cooper
Jansson
Ali

Phillips

Hernandez
Klich
Forshaw
Clarke (wishful thinking)

Roofe
Agree 4 at back, if they have one up top

Re: Leeds Utd v Nottingham Forest Match Thread

This is a game to set down a marker, there will be more space for Saiz if he plays, seemed a bit dejected coming off yesterday, big call for Bielsas man management, to play him or not, I think, big game versus a good side, let us see what the guy is made of, form wise he’s be on the bench to give fo...

Re: Samu Saiz Conundrum

Think a little rest would do him no harm, class player, but seems to be forcing it too much and he looks frustrated, think when Pablo plays, teams have to watch him just as much which opens more space for Saiz.
Hope they both play Saturday and rip Forest apart!!

I really hope it's Clarke and Alio or Pearce and Alio on the left, Harrison as done nothing to convince me he deserves to get in ahead of either .
Agreed, a guy who would benefit with a stint on the bench,
