I remember when Christiansen first came in and we went on a great run. I think I’d been so down about Leeds for such a long time that I finally let myself believe that ‘this is it.’ Just looking at that side now, you’d never in a million years think they were good enough to go up.

Always liked the guy but I think he was way overachieving in those early days. Perhaps it was the stability brought by Radrizzani that inspired that run, as opposed to the manager’s quality.

Now look how far we have come

Dallas, Ayling, Hernandez, Klich and Harrison are the players who drive our success going forward, now being joined by Costa. Paddy is the main beneficiary.

Some have better days that others, Klich and Dallas have more than most for me.

I’m ignoring the Phillips contribution. See what I mean when I try to pick out individuals for plaudits? :roflmao:

I just think that Klich is the hardest to replace..He covers DMF and AMF and his creativity only a hairbreadth behind Pablo..Sometimes he pops up unexpectedly and I think how the f**k did he get there

Not to mention he made 94 consecutive starts under Bielsa and never really had a bad game.

8/10 week in week out for me and almost never below a 7

Might be the best central midfielder in the premier league right now. He's been an instrumental part of our attacking movement all season. His energy and work rate are immense. Really loved the way he moved into the DMC role yesterday. Seemed every bit as influential there too.

I am amazed at the number of flicks, backheels and reverse passes he does with success.

He has that mix of guile and strength. Love the fact he gets under the opponents skins.

He would fit in the cm of any side in the league, any style of play and any role.

He is fantastic (and has received praise on various forums including Liverpool and Man City).

For ages our most underrated player outside of our own fanbase but people are starting to realise how good he is.

He scores goals, creates goals, can slow the play down or speed it up, can collect the ball from deep and drive forward or play an inch perfect 50 yard pass, he is intelligent yet physically capable and can be the last man back making a tackle then the 1st man forward having a shot.

May be the most complete midfielder ive seen in a Leeds shirt.

I think of him as our Captain (no disrespect to Coops or Ayling) but Klich leads by example all the time in his play, consistency and professionalism.

Think Gary Mac was a bit more skillful. But Klich has got him beat on work rate and energy. He's more like the old box to box midfielder. Much better defensively than Gary Mac.

A 1 man midfield.

Our true Captain imo.

So intelligent, should have had 2 assists, was absolutely exhausted by the end.

Love him.

What would it cost to buy Klich now? 30m?

One of the best midfielders in the premier league right now. Better than the most expensive midfielder in the country, if that's any measure.

Klich impressions when you analysed the job before you took it?

Bielsa

"Klich, for me, can play in all the best teams in the world. So, he is in Leeds by chance. It doesn’t have to do with the fact I decided he continued at Leeds. In the first pre-season I asked him if he would consider playing at centre-back, but it so happened in the game before the season started, against Las Palmas, the candidates for the player to play as the eight started falling away. Ronaldo, Forshaw and their absences allowed him to play. Never absent since.

In all cases, all the praise should go to him and Orta who brought him here"
