Re: Pascal Struijk

Pascal had a really tough gig tonight, Grealish and Watkins bombing past him. Hope he doesnt take his subbing to heart. I wouldn't be worried - under a different manager probably but he will know Bielsa has done it previously and he knows Bielsa will probably be unable to sleep tonight for worrying...

Re: Positives & Negatives v Villa (one of each please)

Negative: Mings didn't get sent off for pulling Bamford off the ground by his shirt and then throwing him back to the ground again Can't help but that angered Bamford and was the catalyst for him getting his 2nd and 3rd goals. Don't forget the incident when Bamford got penalised for diving agains V...

Re: Players on Loan thread

Looks an excellent prospect, not sure why we bought the lad in from Fulham and loaned him out, does he look any better? I think Bielsa is actually planning to convert Dramah (the lad from Fulham) into a centreback as I am sure he has been playing there for our U23s - or it might just be part of the...

Re: Kiko Casilla

Interesting that the France FA took no action against the Spanish defender who Neymar accused of being racist. Similar lack of evidence I would have thought simply a case of 1 person saying they heard it and the other person saying they didn't say it. I didn't for one minute believe that the player ...

Re: Lorento got 90 mins Rodrigo got 45 mins

I think Bielsa has some plans that may involve playing 3 centrebacks. I don't see them doing the research they did on Koch and all the presentation stuff they sent to him and then not having been looking to sign him even if we'd got Ben White. They had been in contact with Koch for several months so...

Re: Options

I really hope Raphinha doesnt take Poveda's place. Poveda helped change the flow of the game for us vs Man City and helped vs Sheffield United. Lot of potential in Poveda imo, he could be a £40mil player in the future. We need the healthy competition, the options and squad depth. Bielsa has shown h...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 8th October) - Cuisance - I did not fail Leeds medical

Where we finish is anyone's guess. We have seen in the championship that we are equally as capable as going on a losing run as we are on a winning run. Spending big money doesn't guarantee anything so the first target is simpy to avoid relegation - anything else is a bonus. If we avoid relegation th...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 8th October) - Cuisance - I did not fail Leeds medical

Hard to judge with Cuisance as different medical professionals will be more thorough and have different opinions - just look at all the experts giving different advice regarding Covid. What I would say is that Marseille have taken him with far less risk - a loan of a year and then option to buy (and...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 7th October) Cantwells agent using Leeds to drum up support.

If the roles were reversed, they'd do exactly the same! They think they can bully us because they're a giant corporation with high priced lawyers, but I'm sure Radz has some too. If the club felt they would definitely lose, they'd have paid by now. The date said we had to sign him before 30/06 on p...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 6th October) Is Raphinha the last piece of the jigsaw?

Save £20m on Cantwell and give Shackleton a chance! If we're desperate, then we can always sign someone in January. Would definitely make more sense to me to keep what funds we have available until January. At present we don't need any player, they'd be a luxury so no point spending £20m on a midfi...

Re: ROMA want Victor Orta has new director

Doubtful that Orta would want to leave. He knows what he has at Elland Road and stepping in to a new club he may find his role would quickly be diminished. It seems AR trusts him and he also has a good working relationship with Bielsa.

Re: Rodrigo Moreno

It seems like Poveda was much more of an Orta signing than a Bielsa one.

Easier for Brentford to fly under the radar a bit regarding transfers as they can ease their players in a bit more gradually as the expectation is less. Also when Leeds come calling I bet teams up the price a few million.

Great piece again YS. As the saying goes it is the hope that kills you. I remember well how brilliant that Simon Grayson side were int he first half of our promotion season. Ultra solid at the back and with Beckford and Becchio always capable of scoring. Add the trickery of Snodgrass and we had a gr...

Re: Today's Games

Feel sorry for him, but all Brighton and their fans deserve tbh. It's why I was dead set against overspending on him when there were capable defenders available for a fraction of the price. Ben White is playing in a back 3 and I am not sure it suits him. In a back 3 your positional play is a lot di...
