Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 19th January) Try before you buy for Chilean ace

Richard Keys is irrelevant. I'd call him a dinosaur but he was clueless in the 90's too. Was it him that suggested that Guardiola appoint Sam Allardyce as a defensive coach? Did he forget that Leeds are a newly promoted side. As we establish we'll sign better players and improve year by year. Even t...

Watching the Under 23's play yesterday made me wonder why we can't play our Senior games at Thorpe Arch

Point about that was just that they'd benefit from a loan move and 90 minutes every week. But, like you say, if we're not signing anyone we still need them around.

Re: Leeds U18's & U23's Match Thread

We should have won that game by more than 1-0. Llorente, Roberts, Phillips, Poveda, Costa all obviously above the level of Stokes reserves. But it was really pleasing to see dominant performances from Davis, Huggins, Cresswell, and Jenkins too.

Re: Leeds U18's & U23's Match Thread

Llorente was excellent in that game and just too good for the U23s. The shot from 35yards that skimmed the crossbar was some effort. Very excited to see him play in the first team, am expecting he'll play in our next PL match I know it was a low level game for him, but Llorente really did look clas...

Re: Leeds U18's & U23's Match Thread

Not saying he is ready yet... watching Caprile now a few games I have liked what I see...big step to the Prem ... but could he be worse than Kiko as back up? Still think Caprile has some work to do. He's good with the ball at his feet but think he needs to establish his presence between the sticks ...

Re: The LUFC Weekend Brunch Debate. Post-Match Debate - Team Selection, Performance, Pitch, Rodrigo/Pablo, White

Do you think the team selection & formation were correct? Can't say I would have lined up much differently, but with hindsight, I'm not sure Strujik is offering much in midfield. Thinking back to the Villa game when Strujik came off and Klich played behind Shackleton. Was that performance the worst...

Re: Buy & Sell...

Buying is different with Bielsa. There may be another player like Raphinha out there that would come at a great price and get in the 1st team quickly. But more likely we'd only be looking at players that would be a couple of months away from starting. Since I'm not thinking about anyone coming in, I...

Re: Player Ratings v Brighton (h)

Casilla - 7 Solid game. Looked composed, commanding on crosses, calm in distribution Alioski - 6 Created best chance of first half. Initially lively but faded Cooper - 6 Not really challenged. Nice to see our defensive options expanding Ayling - 5 His best contributions were those surging runs forwa...

Re: Leeds Utd v Brighton Match Thread

I wonder if Llorente will start alongside Cooper or if he'll be eased back with Ayling retaining his centre-back role. I think it will be Llorente and Cooper. Sounds like they've both been training for the past 2 weeks so they've had enough time. Ayling back to RB and Dallas to LB. There's always a...

Re: Crawley Town v Leeds Utd Match Thread

Line-up against Hull was: Casilla Shackleton Cresswell Davis Douglas Bogusz Poveda Casey Roberts Alioski Rodrigo I'd use that as the basis for who's available. Obviously Bogusz, Douglas, and Gotts (who came on as sub) are gone. Looks like Roberts and possibly Davis won't be available. Add in Philli...

Re: MB Pre Crawley Press Conference

Still vague on Roberts. Assuming its a loan but not sure why they wouldn't just say they're exploring loan options. As for the team, it seems that it will be a mixture with just a few of the 23's, i.e. only those that we've seen already. Probably means we won't see Gelhardt, Greenwood, Jenkins, Hugg...
