Good Morning. It's Friday 8th November, and here are the Leeds Utd headlines...
It's Eddie's decision whether he stays at Leeds or not
Marcelo Bielsa has suggested that ultimately it will be down to Eddie Nketiah whether or not he stays beyond the January transfer window. It was widely suggested that Gunners boss Unai Emery would sequentially decide on the 20 year olds future depending on game time, yet Bielsa reveals to the YEP, that Eddie is in charge of his own destiny...
I think that if he feels comfortable with us this is going to be the key for him to stay or not. It is for him to say, not for me. We have the same position as when he arrived at Leeds. After living and sharing with him, our opinion about him is better than the initial position we had before he arrived here and that was very good.
If you were Nketiah, would you be happy with the way you have been utilised so far?

Eddie Nketiah [lower abdominal], Gjanni Alioski [side], Adam Forshaw [hip] and Jamie Shackleton [quad] will also miss tomorrows game but Barry Douglas is fit and available for selection. This being the case, the only change Bielsa is likely to make to the staring line up is to bring Hernandez back to the fold, in favour of Costa.
The news that Mateusz Klich has been called up to Poland’s national squad for their upcoming Euro qualifiers against Israel (16th) and Slovenia (19th) have dismayed many Leeds fans on social media. The 29 year old has played 78 matches for club and country since the start of last season, approaching 6,200 minutes without a break. Surely he's heading for burnout should he continue in this vain.
Has he had the same impact that he showed last season? Does he need a break?
