Poor !
He was poor, unfortunately Saiz and Ali struggled and once Pablo was off to our creativity is 0.

Id give my right arm to have had Jack Grealish on the bench to replace Hernandez.

Saying to friends around me we had nothing on the bench to inspire me !

Not for the want of repeating myself, our recruitment was poor in the summer. We are right up the creak if we suffer a couple of more injuries to our key players

Thats the issue, our depth is weak.

Roofe, Dallas, Sacko etc there solid and decent at there best.

But you wouldn't call them a potential match winner.

Forgot but Saiz had a great chance after lovely play by Ekuban but didn't have the confidence to hit left footed (strange as he scored a left footed goal last week).

Saiz does need to be less greedy though but this trait is probably born out of sheer frustration as he has planted golden opportunities into Alioski, Lasogga & Vieira's paths in recent games & they have missed 80% of them.

Saiz will leave Leeds for between £10m & £15m next summer if we are still plodding away in the championship
Love him as a player but so one footed and not using his team mates on Friday disappointed me. Options Samu
This time I know it's for real :shirtw:

I was disappointed too :tup:

His poorest display in a Leeds shirt v Villa. Still wouldn't want to go into games without him, he is always likely to make something happen

He was fortunate that we didn't play the Villa game one day earlier otherwise he would be serving a suspension.

Assist aside this was another poor display.

He is to greedy for his own good, the running it out of defence is going to cost us, nearly has numerous times already.

Passing was atrocious at times. Maybe needs a rest.

Was poor today but he still scares the opposition to death and you get the impression something can always happen when he gets the ball, gues he’ll get that rest in the upcoming cup game?

Love him but we slate Vierra for poor distribution (quality today though) so turnabout is fair play. Over cooked everything today and poor touch. Happens to the bet of the though

Absolutely - the opposition is petrified of him and if they are giving him closer attention it hopefully frees up a bit more space for the like of Pablo Hernandez and Allioski. Always going to be a bit hit and miss with his final ball as he is always looking for the perfect ball rather than keeping it simple and whilst sometimes it doesn't come off there will be lots of times when it does and wins us the game.

He had a good chance as well, similar to the other game where he tried to be to clever and cut inside. On this occasion he i think tried a lob and got it totally wrong (have a feeling it was a good move link up between Roofe,Saiz and Cibicki).

Love Samu but my god man sometimes just hit it as hard as you can (in defence and attack).

Finally delivered on the 3rd goal

A frustrating afternoon for him & his fans

Even so Samu enjoyed his song as he applauded our fans at the end of the game

We've got Saiz :sing:

Another off game.

Norwich were terrified of him and thats a reason to have him start.

But he should have scored and once again held on to the ball to long.

Think a rest soon is needed. Get pablo into the number 10 role.

Samu is a victim of his own brilliant earlier performances - a bit like the team after the great start to the season. If he picked the right pass, right shot every time then there would be no way he would be playing for us - as such we have to accept that while he may be brilliant at times he will also have off days but like you say the opposition will always be scared of him and that will give other players a bit more freedom.

Made a difference.

Was positive and worried Birmingham, linked well with Pablo and Ali.

Not perfect, wasted some good play from him and Ali by over complicating and taking to many touches. Pass to Pablo was under hit, but made an impact.
