Seems everyone thinks the same apart from the boss. Another highly average performance tonight and some might consider him at fault for their goal - isn’t a good defender or attacker at this level . Surely it’s time for his arse to be parked on the bench for a while ?
Problem is Bielsa likes him because he will try to play anywhere.

Unfortunately he is average or below everywhere.

Been here for years and i cant think of 1 memorable performance.

There's no room for sentiment. Surely the best team for that particular match is played , if it goes pear-shaped then hold your hands up , isn't that what managing is about ? Anyone can keep picking the same 11 however I do appreciate that in Leeds' case those same 11 are rarely available.

Tbh I'm surprised with the Bielsa's preference for Dallas. he must be seeing something on the training pitch I'm not seeing in real time.

Clarke comes on & excites me

Dallas just frustrates me

Regards Clarke, an immense talent I am sure that hasn’t gone unnoticed to Bielsa, obviously feels he’s not ready to start and just stick to 30 minute cameos with the game a bit more open. His best showing was against forest, I’d imagine he’s close to forcing his coaches hand to let him show his stuff from the start.
I realised I was dyslexic when I went to a toga party dressed as a goat..

But why waste so much time of a game when you know Dallas can't defend at one end & rarely creates anything at the other end ?

What is the point ?

Remember reading when he arrived an interview with a Bilbao fan on one of the LUFC blog sites.

One of the things he said was something like.

"Bielsa doesnt care what a player has done in the past, what the fans think of them or even what position they have played before. He will play them where he thinks they fit best and he only plays players who buy into his philosophy 100% ".

Something like that.

Dallas is probably one of those who listens and Bielsa likes that.

I think he is wrong myself same as its reported the club begged him to have another cb and he refused, thought that was wrong to.

Stubborn coach who likes a small squad and Dallas is someone he likes unfortunately :(

From the Belfast Live match report

DALLAS
Moved to left-back and impressed going forward, but it was his mistake which led to Austria's late winner. 6/10


Why do managers think he is a defender ?

It's not as if Dallas is good in the air

God help us Cjay, he'll cost us a few more before folk realise he is a liability

We've made do for fifteen years, sick of it to be honest :x

Been wondering this myself.

When did Stuart Dallas become a modern day Paul Madeley? (i never saw him play but you all say he was versatile).

Who decided this?

I remember Jamie Carragher saying " for a full back your either a failed winger or a failed centre back".

Is that it, have managers realised Dallas isnt a winger but thought "hmm he's a nice lad maybe he can be a full back or (lord help us) a centre back".

We all have said it "ohh Dallas very versatile".

But i cant actually remember when or why this happened :duno:

Stuart Dallas can't be discussed in the same breath as Paul Madeley

It's like comparing a Rolls Royce to a clapped out Ford Escort
