Re: Crysencio Summerville- Potentially leaving.

Pontus hasn't done badly, despite supposedly teams weren't queueing up for him, still think he was worth more than £4.5m, must have been as Bielsa quoted Jansson was our best player of the season. How many clubs would sell their best international player for less than £5m? Not surprised teams are n...

Re: Crysencio Summerville- Potentially leaving.

What about continuing loyalty.to players who have done naff all for years? Tyler Roberts for example? I would agree with you about Tyler Roberts although I do feel that at some point, whether it is with Leeds or another club, something will click with him and he will become a decent player. Or cont...

Re: Crysencio Summerville- Potentially leaving.

Just for a bit of perspective from Germany: I VERY much doubt Hamburg are able to, let alone willing to, spend more than the 1.5m Leeds had to pay for Summerville. There is talk of how they could possibly manage to afford his wages, there simply isn't the money in 2. Bundesliga. If he does want to ...

Re: Crysencio Summerville- Potentially leaving.

I'm fed up of Bielsa showing continued loyalty to players just because they got the team promoted and played well in the premiership. They are clearly all past it now and my threshold for dropping them would be 1 or 2 bad performances. I'd take the fact that we are missing several experienced player...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 26th January) Winter of discontent for the U23's

I wonder if the reason we lost 4-0 to Blackburn in the U23s was due to all the players being distracted as they were all wondering why they aren't playing for the first team.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 26th January) Winter of discontent for the U23's

Although it is disappointing to see the U23 results it isn't always about results when looking at the U23s. If we lose every match but produce some stars then that is better than winning every match and producing no one of note. The famous example being the Leeds FA Youth Cup winning side that in th...

Re: Crystal Palace Thread - Gallagher...what a player!

Crystal Palace are progressing with a loan offer for Donny Van der Beek. Their wouldn't be an option to buy but their are definitely no options available in January better than our u23s for less than £10mil And yet it seemed every man and his dog was against us loaning a player from Chelsea in the ...

Re: The next generation

Our squad is ludicrously small, 18 first team players is a ludicrously small squad. Two players per position is fine, that's normal and perfectly sustainable for a Premier league team. I just think Bielsa isn't a fan of man management and keeping the squad small takes a lot of that away. We do have...

Re: January 2022 transfer speculation and squad discussion

But then he should be putting more pressure on the board to help him out. It's mental if we end up leaving this January with 2 players with first team experience less than we had when it started . We are far from safe as things stand and this is turning into an absolute disaster transfer window aga...

Re: The next generation

"As a full back, you are either a failed centre back or a failed winger". Jamie Carragher to Gary Neville. Neville was a failed cb. Almost every full back was only a full back because they weren't good enough in another role. It's actually true, even someone like Roberto Carlos was origin...

Re: The next generation

We have no depth even fully fit We can't even fill the bench with first team players. If they are only good enough for a few minutes then they shouldn't be on the bench, that is my view, some will disagree. But I feel that if you are good enough for the bench then you should be good enough to start...

Re: The next generation

He isn't though. He failed as a CB at Bristol City, which is why they sold him. Cresswell was MOTM against Fulham and played very well v West Ham and hasn't been seen since. Good enough for England u21s though... Bristol City didn't think Ayling was good enough at full back which is why they sold h...

Re: January 2022 transfer speculation and squad discussion

Personally, unless the injury jinx lasts all season, I really don’t think we are in any danger of the drop. Would agree 100%. Given the injuries we have had I think we could easily have seen ourselves int he bottom 3. Under most managers we would be and they'd be excusing their poor performance by ...

Re: The next generation

He also bottled a great chance which almost cost us 2 points. He needs to do more than just run, especially at £25m. Are you talking about the West Ham chance? If you actually look at the ball played into him it is behind him meaning that he has to slow down to take the ball which is why he can't g...

When you think of all the accolades he has earned, even just his time in England, gushing praise from other managers like Guardiola, LMA Manager of the Season in the Championship, baubles like MOTD's Premier League Manager of the Season, the praise from his own players, promotion, finishing 9th, de...

Re: The next generation

Dallas is excellent wherever he plays, certainly under Bielsa's reign. My point was there was no need to switch Stuart to the LB position as Newcastle generally play through the middle, they haven't got outstanding wingers or wing-backs. The majority of us know why Hjede or Gelhardt didn't start :(...

I firmly believe that the majority of our u23s are overrated but the club say they are this wonderful group who would cost 8 figure sums to improve on yet the boss only.plays them as a last resort. The idea that it would cost 8 figure sums to improve on our u23s is nonsense. You look at players lik...

Re: The next generation

We look more solid with Dallas in the middle of the park, the barcodes had far too much freedom in that area of the pitch. Also, Dallas is always capable of grabbing a goal, unlike our other midfielders. As for three wingers, play only two giving us an option off the bench, which would have applied...

Re: The next generation

Gelhardt & Hjelde are ready. Jack Clarke was ready, fans demanded he start games after a couple of great substitute appearances. Maybe physically and ability wise he was ready but perhaps mentally he wasn't. I don't think we have ever really been told what happened in the match where he had to ...
