Re: Where is our goal threat coming from?

The same squad of players (basicly) from the championship winning team are evolving, and evolving for the better. The amount of "overhaul" suggested by Chappel, would cost an absolute fortune, which we do not have, and IMO, nor need. Time will eventually incorperate the complete change as suggested...

Re: Where is our goal threat coming from?

Areas to address are ; - A decent - and consistent - left winger. I didn't think we should sign Costa, and I think the same with Harrison. Flash in the pan performances can deceive some, but not all. - A proper left back. - Another striker to compete with Bamford. Paddy has done well for most of the...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 7th April) Hay amazed at amount of unhappy Leeds fans

Only us under Wilko in 1990-1991 John - I think we finished 4th in the old First Division and obviously went on to win the title the next year. IMO Wilko has never had the credit which he deserves for those incredible 3 years. The club had been in the old 2nd division for 8 years, and he got promot...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 7th April) Hay amazed at amount of unhappy Leeds fans

I think that the Times article which I posted recently gave a very balanced perspective of the season so far - not too over the top either way, and it rightly points out that there have been some duff performances as well as the excellent ones ( losing 6-2 to Man U principally ) Personally speaking ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 7th April) Hay amazed at amount of unhappy Leeds fans

It seems to me that conceding goals from crosses and set pieces is a symptom of Bielsaball . Bielsa likes his central defenders to be mobile, quick and comfortable with the ball at their feet which tends to make them not quite as physically strong (or even perhaps as tall) compared to other teams c...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 7th April) Hay amazed at amount of unhappy Leeds fans

First of all seeing that our defending has improved so how anyone can say that we haven't learnt from our mistakes beggars belief. Secondly comparing Bielsa or any Leeds player or any footballer or any sportsperson's job to a other types of jobs is simply ridiculous. In other jobs it is simply (for...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 5th April) Leeds made loss of 62m last season

Are we paying Augustin’s wages Chapel? I thought we’d pulled out of the deal, I know there is a court case or something looming. I realise we may eventually have to pay £18m for him plus his backdated wages but surely he is still someone else’s player (Leipzig was it?) until the outcome of the cour...

We've wasted so much money over the last few years :roll: Kiko, Forshaw, Nketiah, De Bock, Izzy Brown, Lewis Baker, Blackman, Costa! Lord knows how much that has cost us including wages! Don't forget JKA ( £90,000 a week wages ) and we may still have to buy him for 18m.... Casilla as the 4th highes...

This was an article in the Times yesterday - I think it's an interesting summing up of the season so far, with some very good points.

Re: Diego Llorente

I noticed the blunts used that “bus queue” tactic at corners which mean we had a few spare bodies instead of man to man. Maybe that helped the defence track their man from five or six yards instead of grappling them and losing out (which has been the main problem) That was the problem with that goa...

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

Positive - the team registered at least 20 shots in a PL game for the 5th time this season, with only City so far registering more ( 6 times ) Oh, and after a long time on the sidelines OG returned to goal scoring form... Negative - that defence still looks shaky to me. I was surprised that Struijk ...

Re: Leeds Utd v Sheffield Utd Match Thread - Liam Cooper returns in place of Pascal Struijk

7 goals is a decent return in my opinion. Matches Mane, Jesus and beats the likes of Bowen, Grealish and Richarlison who are all hailed at their clubs Not to mention beats £50m Werner :lol: That's in a team which creates a particularly high number of chances though, so comparisons with other player...

Re: Leeds Utd v Sheffield Utd Match Thread - Liam Cooper returns in place of Pascal Struijk

Ayling is never a good option when we need 3 CBs.

Even against a team as goal shy as the Blunts I was right in saying that we wouldn't keep a clean sheet in my score prediction.

I hope the club don't sign Harrison permanently in the summer - an upgrade is needed there.

Performances: I'm shocked that 45/100 fans are not satisfied of our performances when we're placed where we are.
