Good Morning. It's Friday 26th June, and here are thew latest headlines from Elland Road...


Bundesliga outfit shortlist Orta for technical role

The Independent are reporting that Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig are on the hunt for a new Technical Director, and Victor Orra is on their short list. The Spaniard worked closely with RB Leipzig and Red Bull International Soccer in securing the services of Augustin in the January transfer window. Red Bull are looking to replace Paul Mitchell, who joined from Tottenham in 2018, left to become sporting director at AS Monaco earlier this month.

Orta, who instrumental in bringing Bielsa to the club. Sources close to Orta say there has not been an official approach, and Orta is expected to stay at Elland road next season, and beyond.




Bielsa's pre match press conference

The Gaffer looks ahead the the Fulham game and gives injury updates on Hernandez, Forshaw and Augustin.




Who would settle for a 0-0 tomorrow?

As we all know, Fulham are the visitors to Elland Road tomorrow. A win for Bielsa's men could see Leeds open up a 10 point gap between themselves, as long as West Brom can win in West London against Brentford? The Baggies, just like Leeds have occupied the top two all season, Although neither club owes the other any favours, they'll both be praying that the top two can extend their lead over the play off contenders. A win for Fulham would move the Cottagers within 4 points of Leeds. Bearing all this in mind, if you were offered a 0-0 prior to the match, would you take it?

Which team this season has come at us, shared possession and won ? I don't think any team has. Cardiff came at us after going behind at ER but that's different.

Yes, welcome Leeds1000.

The good news is we'll know the outcome of that game before we step on the pitch.

I do not, however, think the players approach the game thinking about playing for a draw or what the standings may be. The players and coaches - at least this group of players and coaches - want to win every game they play and play accordingly. Playing for the single point is for lesser sides. Think back on this season. We've encountered many sides that have parked the bus, played for the draw, and hoped against hope they could nab a goal on a counter. We have never, ever played that way.

We play better against teams that open up and try and attack. I'm with Leeds1000 in thinking that we may be able to exploit some of
that openness tomorrow.
Seem to recall Fulham being cagey and trying to play on the break against us at home..Teams that have beaten us tend to have to do that. We should see Fulham try to keep it tight and counter.

Its never an easy call. Do you risk losing to try and go for the win or keep the 7 point gap in place, hoping that West Brom beat Brentford of course.

Orta will probably get a pay rise if we finish the job? If we somehow manage to mess things up again, i'm guessing Orta will be the least of our worries. From the outside it does appear that Radz & Orta are pals who happen to work together.

Wouldn't be too bothered if Orta left Leeds

The main man is Marcelo :love:
