The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 15th Mar)

Post by HarryofOz » Fri Mar 15, 2019 8:54 am

Last time it was a meeting, now he's overslept - what next, will his dog eat his modem?

I see that it's Danny Mills' turn to pipe up that Bielsa may leave if we don't go up - gee really?

That is one problem with the 24/7 news cycle that we live in nowadays. Something has to fill the online news sites and blogs, so virtually anything will do.
We're going up like there is no gravity!

Leeds United Under-23s: 10-man Whites seal Premier League Cup progression with shootout victory over Fulham

10-man Leeds United sealed progression through to the quarter-finals of the Premier League Cup on Thursday evening with a penalty shootout victory over Fulham. Marcelo Bielsa made first-team players Izzy Brown, Barry Douglas and Gaetano Berardi available for the knockout tie against the Cottagers.

Jack Clarke and Jamie Shackleton were also named on the bench while midfielder Robbie Gotts was handed a start. Leeds were the better of the two sides but failed to hit their free-flowing best in the opening exchanges. United's sloppy play in the final third saw a number of stray passes overhit as Fulham grew in confidence as the half progressed.

Ryan Edmondson saw a shot blocked and Mateusz Bogusz fired a volley over the bar from outside the area. Carlos Corberan's side, though, did produce one moment of quality before the half-time whistle as Brown and Douglas combined inside the box which saw the latter brought down by Jayden Harris. Referee Darren Middleton pointed to the spot and Edmondson fired the spot-kick high into the net with a thunderous strike.

United's lead didn't last long after the break as Harrison Male was caught on the ball inside his own six-yard box. Harris made up for his earlier mistake as he swept up the loose ball before being hauled to the ground by the stopper. He was adjudged to have failed to play the ball and given his marching orders with Josh Rae stepping off the bench in United's final substitution of the night.

Matthew O'Riley found the bottom corner from the penalty spot and it didn't take long for the visitors to complete the comeback. Nicolas Santos Clase found space just before the hour mark to fire home underneath Rea with Leeds struggling to get a foothold in the game following the dismissal.

United, though, did muster a leveller with their only chance of the second half with substitute Clarke the architect. The 18-year-old beat his man on the right and found Bryce Hosannah who drilled low into the box first time with Brown on hand to slot home and force extra-time.

Leeds went close through Struijk after the swapping of ends as he headed a corner over the bar before substitute Sonny Hilton fired a volley wide for the visitors. Rae was forced into late action as the striker again found a way through the United backline but the goalkeeper got down low to ensure penalties would be required. Brown, Bogusz, Struijk and Clarke all bagged for United with Jordan Stevens and Steven Sessegnon both missing to send the shootout to sudden death.

Berardi sent George Wickens the wrong way before goalscorer Santos Clase saw his effort fly over the bar to send Leeds into the quarter-finals of the competition on a dramatic night.


Leeds United XI: Male, Hosannah, Struijk, Berardi, Douglas, Diaz, Bogusz, Gotts, Stevens, Brown, Edmondson. Subs: Rae, Shackleton, Clarke, Davis, Kun.

Fulham XI: Wickens, Drameh, Sessegnon, Edun, Jenz, Opoku, Harris, O'Riley, Kait, Francois, Santos Clase. Subs: Stahl, Abraham, McAvoy, Hilton, Havilland.

Great result for a strong looking U23 side.
The fact that Clarke was only on the bench suggests he will be involved tomorrow

Biggest game in the last 15 years???
The Bristol Rovers game in League 1 was much bigger. If we hadn't won that it would have put us into the play-offs and potential at least another season or several seasons in League 1. Tomorrow to some degrees is meaningless, we could lose and still go up as champions, we could win and still not get automatically promoted. Each game after tomorrow will become bigger and bigger until we face a match that if we win we will get promoted.

Afternoon Weasel,

Would you care to predict a scoreline for tomorrow?


Yes, I remember the Bristol City game.

Gradel went mental when he was red carded, and had to be more or less carried off by Beckford.

When Howson struck the winner bending the ball in - one of the best moments of my life.

I loved Grayson - I don't think he ever hit his potential as a Manager.

But he did "hit" his secretary ...
BPF - Hossannah - Halme - Diaz - Struijk - Oduor - Gotts - Stevens - McCalmont - Temenuzhkov - Shackleton

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

2-1 either way - with weather predicted to be bad it could make the match a bit of a lottery and make our way of playing ineffective. As such could all boil down to one or two key moments where a mistake or bounce of the ball determines the outcome.

Hoping if at all possible we have our promotion secured before that game.

One thing I can predict for certain is more cards than goals scored.
Cards of varying colours too.
What with conditions , wind and or rain making life difficult aswell ,referee will play a big big part I feel.Understandably these cautions pending must Not be to our detriment. Marcelo & company need to play a huge part in combinating cool calm and collectivness of not only might but sheer will and grace to see this one through.
I don't like making scorelines so ... looks like a draw from here but then seeing as I went be there I'll go 3-1 Super Leeds United. MOT Hooray for the Whites.

If not, then the choice is clear.
