BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

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

ok folks 2 teams (as it seems a little late for additional signings to come in and start) 1) - What you think Biesla will do, and 2)- Your starting XI
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

Mine - Formation 4-5-1 (Assuming Forshaw is injured

BPF

Ayling
Jansson
Cooper
Douglas

Phillips
Klich

Alioski
Hernandez
Roofe

Bamford

Biesla - 451

BPF

Ayling
Jansson
Cooper
De Bock

Phillips
Klich

Alioski
Hernandez
Saiz

Roofe

Think the new guys could be on the bench week 1 as MB likes to introduce slowly

Forshaw starts over Klich if fit, but not looking likely AFAIK. With Forshaw out and Vierra gone our options outside of adding a youth teamer appear to be less varied than they were..I'd assume O'Kane will be considered for the bench
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

I rarely post but I do a lot of MOT Forum stalking (the threads not the members). Really excited for the new season, eternal optimist - for which supporting Leeds is a real challenge.

Like Faiip I think MB may be slower to introduce the new signings (bar Douglas) as they familiarise with his tactics. I'm also not convinced Jansson will be fully match fit, although I hope so.

My team:

---------------Bamford---------------
Harrison------Saiz----Hernandez
-----------------Klich------------------
Douglas----------------------Ayling
----------------Phillips----------------
----Jansson-----------Berardi------
----------Peacock-Farrell-----------

Predicted Bielsa Team:
-----------------Roofe-----------------
Alioski---------Saiz----Hernandez
-----------------Klich------------------
Douglas----------------------Ayling
----------------Phillips----------------
----Cooper-----------Berardi------
----------Peacock-Farrell-----------

It will be interesting to see who makes the bench. I think Clarke, Shackleton and Edmondson were impressive in pre-season, however - Blackman, Baker, Dallas, Berardi/Jansson, Alisoki/Harrison, Roofe/Bamford - are all more likely candidates.

None of you have included Tyler Roberts, even on the bench. Am I missing something, he's not injured again is he?

I think you are spot with what the starting line up will be 1964white, with Baker starting instead of Forshaw if he's injured.

Unsure if I'm spot on Chilli however that is the team I'd go with from the players available to us

Heck I forgot about Roberts

If he's fit Roberts will probably be on the bench

Completely forgot about Tyler Roberts... I suppose that's easily done considering his Leeds career so far. Don't think he'll start though. Also assuming Forshaw is injured.

So two from your original bench don't get a shirt - which two?
Trying to pick Sunday's 18 make you realize that the squad is still actually quite big.

Think I'd go with:

-----------------------BPF--------------------------
---------Jansson-Phillips-Cooper------------
Ayling----------------------------------Douglas
--------------------Forshaw----------------------
Alioski---------Hernandez-------------Roofe
-------------------Bamford-----------------------

Blackman, Berardi, Pearce, Klich, Saiz, Roberts, Edmonson

Bielsa?

-------------------BPF----------------
Ayling-Jansson-Cooper-Dallas
---------Forshaw-Phillips---------
Alioski----Hernandez-------Saiz
-----------------Roofe---------------

Klich for Forshaw in both if he's injured.

Think it will be too early for Douglas, he was excluded from all preseason games at Wolves, to include Bamford after Roofe’s preseason would be cruel, I think Harrison will start, Dallas at LB until Douglas gets up to speed

——————— Blackman ———————

———— Pontus - Philips - Cooper ———
Ayling ——————————————- Dallas
———————— Klich ————————-
Baker ———— Hernandez———— Harrison
———————— Roofe —————————

My expected lineup, maybe Forshaw if he is fit but he had an injury concern, Bamford, Tyler, Alioski, Berardi on the bench

. . . . . . . . .Blackman . . . . . . . . .

. . .Jansson. .Phillips . .Coops .

Ayling . . . . . . . . . .Klich . . . . .Douglas

Ali . . . .Hernandez. . Harrison

. . . . . . . . . Bamford . . . . . . . .

Worst case scenario is the new lads and Jansson arent match fit.

Then we get an even more shite defence of Berardi, Cooper and Philips, my absolute nightmare.

Dallas at left back, hate inverted full backs.

Roofe being bullied by Shawcross all game up front.

Saiz running into blind alleys and Pablo desperately trying to keep up with James McLean on the right.

Basically last seasons side plus Klich, doesnt bare thinking about.

Forshaw out for 6-8 weeks.

Opportunity for Klich to show what he can do competitively/over a longer period.
