Again we agree, I think we mostly see the same things the same way. Clarke has impressed more at U23 level than Edmondson. I guess Edmondson offers a more target man outlet and more physicality in the area but I reckon at 2-0 down MB was wishing we had JC on the bench.

I also think it should have been Shackleton on for Phillips when we went 3 at the back. Dallas is a hard worker but lacks pace and hard work we weren't short of today. We were a little short on inspiration

Wise people :)

Agree on Shacks to, we didnt need energy, we needed inspiration.

Our bench lacked that today.

Clarke would have been someone who may have provided some.

U23s play on Monday, hope he smashes it.

Not sure what more he has to do tbh :duno:

The boy done well . Promising on the ball and
should grow confident in this Leeds squad.
Lovred his attitude and wanted the ball. High praise to Marcelo& all the coaching staff.

We have a lot of talent in the ranks thanks to Mr Orta ...2/3 ball playing centre backs, Diaz and Halme in particular. Temenuzhkov, Edmondson both look like good strikers, Robbie Gotts and Jack Clarke look quality too..

I watched Bielsa's post match interview, well, most of it and I'm sure he mentioned young Clarke. Saying that we have a very good group of youngsters and that Clarke is proof that they can step up to the first team when required. (Please feel free to correct me if I got that wrong with the translation)

I've been screaming for him to get a chance for weeks, so glad to see it finally happen. I thought he showed no fear and his pace and trickery will cause problems. Great to see Bielsa is happy to bring on young players when we're behind and truly believes they can change the game. Now we just need to protect him from the vultures who will circle him.

Well done Jack :supbo:

Skinned a Bees defender with his first touch, clinically stopped in his tracks

Brought a ball down from the sky with sublime control

Nice passing & movement

An accomplished cameo from the Jack the Lad :-D

Won 2 fouls almost instantly when brought down because he was to skillful for the fb.

They had to take there fb off to deal with him.

Put in some great crosses.

Was direct and brave, beat his man and crossed the ball.

Thats all a winger has to do, Harrison while talented seems to want to beat a fb 3 times.

Unfortunately i imagine once we have Hernandez and Roofe back it will be back to the u23s for Clarkey.

A mistake imo but very good cameo.

I'm not so sure he will be CJay.
He looked full of confidence when he came on and having just watched the game this evening, I was impressed. I think MB will have been as well.
I'm not saying he will get a start any time soon but I think he will (should) remain in the 18. It's more likely Pearce and Edmondson will drop down before him.
Hard to believe he's still only 17. What a player we could have on our hands.
If they haven't already I hope the club tie him into a long contract.

Hope you're right Chilli.

Agree entirely, he was very impressive and oozed confidence.

17 years old coming on to help his boyhood club at home in front of a frustrated crowd, would have been easy for him to fade into the background.

But he wanted the ball he was desperate for it, thats always a good sign imo.

Signed up till 2021.

Think he gives us something we lack, a game changer from the bench.

When Roofe and Hernandez come back (Bamford to but thats ages away and Brown).

We can have Clarke and Harrison and Roberts on the bench or Roofe and Pablo or whatever.

Will have options and Clarke certainly should be one.

Cant remember the last time we had such a talented looking attacking player from the youth team.

Another really impressive cameo from Jack.

Yes he did overplay at one point.

But he was so positive, running at full backs, winning corners, taking shots.

Pleased Bielsa gave him another chance and surely pushing for a start vs Ipswich?

Bottom of the table, low on confidence at Elland Road.

I think thats a great opportunity to give him his 1st start.
