Re: Middlesbrough v Leeds Utd Match Thread - Berardi in for Phillips, Kiko Starts, No JKA!

Unable to watch tonight but stats tell a familiar story, had a feeling Klich would grab one tonight. Let's have another goal second half and keep another clean sheet!

We'll be fine. We'll begin next week 7 points ahead.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 25th February) Will Casilla play with hand injury?

I do wonder about Klich, he is obviously one of our top performers but I would like to see how we went without him, as I think we could actually play Bamford in his place and have Big Kev up front. Roberts would do a decent job there too I reckon. It is all about what roles each player has in the t...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 25th February) Will Casilla play with hand injury?

I don't think Bielsa's the type to avoid playing anyone due to financial concerns. If Kiko felt well enough to play the rest of the game (and we should be grateful he did with the last minute save on Saturday) then whatever injury he has can't be too serious. The wrist brace is probably just a preca...

Eric Olthwaite precisely sums up the Yorkshireman's attitude to life. Eric goes on like broken gramophone record with the needle stuck in the groove, much like the doomsday naysayers on here. It were hard to accept I were boring. Especially with my interest in rain fall. That night, as we talked ex...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 24th February) Leeds stretch lead to five points over play off rivals

I'm surprised given we've restored nearly half our pre-wobble gap to third, garnered back to back wins and clean sheets that the mood isn't a wee bit more positive.

I cant see how you can rate them do high for a 1-0.
I was actually thinking at half time it'd stay 0-0 with those conditions, looked hellish out there. Got to credit the clean sheet if nothing else.

Re: Leeds Utd v Reading Match Thread - Bielsa names unchanged line-up

Good solid piece of work, that. Another clean sheet, another 3 points. Starting to look more like the Leeds of the first half of the season.

And that's the point isn't it, he's managing us like he has years to complete his task. Why I think he's here if we stays down next season, it's be the honorable thing to do Agreed. Reading up on the specifics, his short tenures at other clubs seemed to invariably boil down to the clubs either pani...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 19th February) With 13 games to go, how many pts needed to go up?

When I look at the Bristol game there were two or three instances where Bristol were not able to park the bus in front of goal... Bamford slips and recovers and passes a delicious ball to Harrison but his cross is missed by Costa... and then Dallas slips the ball through to Costa who has only the k...

JKA has the potential to be anything.
This is exactly it. If Bielsa can do for Kev what he's done for the other lads we could well have a powerful weapon in the battle to stay up next season.

Bamford is not to blame for the lack of goals. Ten men in the box defending is the reason it is difficult to score. You need a pinball wizard to score in those circumstances. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200219/ec47eb93e29b2d6843a008d15e2ee101.jpg Sent from my SM-G903F using Tapatalk True Rab...

Re: Is This Our Best XI ?

The accusation leveled at Leeds is that regardless of possession and creating chances we are unable to put the ball in the back of the net and the blame often gets laid at Bamford's door, but the truth of the matter is if a team plants 10 men in the box then it is extremely difficult to score, as w...

Re: Is This Our Best XI ?

Roberts produces nowhere near the assists/goals Hernandez does. Amazing how Pablo at his age is more fitter than Tyler. It is remarkable, and Pablo for sure deserves a place in the annals of Leeds United legends in my opinion. It's a bit unfair however to judge Roberts's ability and potential, much...

Valid point 64 , I am not even considering them as I think they'll win it anyway and they can certainly help us out on few occasions when they play those just below us.

Re: Is This Our Best XI ?

I don't think Roberts improves the team As for Augustin & Poveda they are not fit to start therefore both will only make sub appearances at best Agree to disagree on Roberts then, I think we look dangerous whenever he's on the pitch...all five minutes of it. That's why I said the potential is there...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 18th February) - Leeds are in good shape mentally and physically

Good point Harry. There are a couple I'd comfortably see the back of, like Forshaw and Douglas. Not that I necessarily think they're poor players but we've had so little need of them whether through form or fitness that we just wouldn't miss them if they went. Regards the tiredness, another whole ye...

Re: Is This Our Best XI ?

Can't argue with our defensive solidity and attacking power whilst fielding that lineup and the results reflect it. Given our form since December it's easy to forget we would go into a game and feel confident of not only winning it but shutting the opposition out completely, but we did exactly that ...
