Bielsa subbed the sub.

Baker apparently went to go down the tunnel immediately but Bielsa called him back, Baker then sat opposite side of the dugout from Bielsa.

Make of that what you will.
Injured went to go get treatment or had a paddy and was put in check.

Not the best start for our two vaunted loans from Chelsea...they won't be happy if they're not starting
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Phillips - Cooper - Douglas - Alioski - Klich - Hernandez - Roofe - Clarke

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"

Doesn't matter one jot to us though. I know we'll be paying for them, but ultimately I want the best team out there, and as we've had players step up, they're more deserving imo.

Me too. Always hope players do well at Leeds.

Couldn't care less about Chelsea considering its their business model which is starting to bite them in the arse with players like De Bruyne and Salah proving themselves after leaving.

Watched him again for the u23s tonight, but concerned he doesnt really stand out.
Looks ok, but no more then that.

When I first saw Baker in one of our friendlies at York, I expected him to be a cut above the rest

Truth is he wasn't.

My mate is a Boro fan and he said he did okay there last season but nothing special and he spent most of his time on the bench.
It looks like it could be another season of the same with Klich, Forshaw and Phillips all ahead of him for a CM place.

Very poor performance from Baker, barely noticed him being on the pitch, on the rare occasions when he did touch the ball he either got dispossessed or misplaced a pass, very poor.

That aside lots on twitter saying he was in his car trying to leave on full time or just after.

Either way, a tantrum perhaps?

Have to say I couldn't visualise him as a championship player in the York friendly, my view hasn't changed over the months

Stamford Bridge is calling you Baker boy

I watched the game but I have to say I didn't really notice him...now young Clarke, I certainly noticed him

Rusty I'd say, has certainly looked better for us on other occasions. Difficult to maintain playing form sat on the bench
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Phillips - Cooper - Douglas - Alioski - Klich - Hernandez - Roofe - Clarke

Apparently Baker left ER during the 2nd half after his early bath

Sounds like he is committed to Bielsa-ball :roll:

Reports now that Chelsea are set to recall Lewis Baker.

I do hope so, he makes Matt Grimes look useful.

Maybe its because he has been in that Chelsea fishbowl since he was 10, made him think he is better then he is.
