Saints hierarchy meet to discuss Adams future

Good Morning. Its Tuesday 14th January, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...

Clarke to sign with QPR, just in time for Saturday

Will Jack Clarke come back to haunt us? We won't have to wait long to find out! The 19 year old looks set to join QPR just in time to face the Whites on Saturday at Loftus Road. To say the York born winger has a point to prove is an understatement. Was he given an opportunity to prove his worth under Bielsa - absolutely not! Whilst its fair to question Clarke's attitude since his £10m transfer to Spurs, I look at Bielsa and see an incredible Manager, with tunnelled vision.

Exactly the same goes with Nketiah. Whilst he was banging in multiple goals for England, he was unable to displace Bamford on a 10 game drought. Is anybody surprised when he was given his debut on the 29th December, he looked disinterested?

Will Bielsa's blinkered approach cost Leeds dearly in the second half of the season?

Leeds beat off competition for City ace

Manchester City winger Ian Poveda is set to undergo a Leeds United medical this week.

The 19 year old was in Italy last weekend with his father considering his options. Serie A outfits Torino and Parma have both expressed their desire to sign the England U20 winger, but it seems Bielsa's relationship with Pep Guardiola has given the Whites the edge.

Poveda is a left sided winger. Although born in London, both his parents are Columbian. He close to represent England at U16 level, and has been consistently picked for the three Lions ever since.

Saints hierarchy meet to discuss Adams future

According to Leeds journalist Beren Cross, Saints Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl and his Southampton bosses met today for a transfer summit to discuss Che Adams. An outcome is expected today, but with two weeks until the transfer window slams shuts, viable targets are disappearing daily.

Brewster has signed for Swansea and the Blades have denied us access to speak to Billy Sharp! Is anybody else of the opinion that signing Billy Sharp would be scraping the barrel?

Well, if we don't manage to capture Adams, it is likely that Leeds will turn their attention to veteran striker David McGoldrick. The 32 year old has yet to score for the Blades in 19 appearances, though he has contributed two assists!

Yes it does ...Ellandback said he'd like to see us play a 352 so Paddy has a strike partner, I wanted to know what he thought that would look like

If I had a go

White Berardi Cooper
Ayling Klich Phillips Hernandez Harrison
Bamford New Striker

Does it matter ? Bielsas teams play all over the place anyway. It will be the same team as most weeks but not necessarily in the same position as they played in the previous week.

totally agree with that. teams know exactly how we're going to line up and who's going to play where. They know we need 10 or more chances to score and know that if they get something on target theres a good chance it will go in.

I love Bielsa but he does make mistakes, let face it he's only human.

The man is honest enough having own up to making mistakes during his interviews.

Anyone who wants Bielsa out must be off their head :evil:
Morning Leon, I don't mind Bielsa making mistakes, but he doesn't seem to learn by them.

We need change of tactics, and we need to rotate players - both I'd say he is incapable of!

Looking at what we have, we have the perfect squad to go 5-3-2.

I don't think there is anything wrong with Bamford, but he needs someone else to play off.

At least this would provide a change of tactic now and again.
