The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 6th March) Roberts benched in favour of Bamford

Post by Ellandback1 » Fri Mar 06, 2020 8:35 am



Good Morning. It's Friday 6th March, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...


Leeds chase Canadian Striker

Turkish outlet Besiktas have claimed that if Leeds want to sign Canadian striker Cyle Larin this summer, they will have to double their expectations.

Leeds have sent scouts to watch the 24yo hitman in action at Belgian side Zulte Waregem where he is on loan for the season.

So far, the No 9 has contributed nine goals and 11 assists from his 32 appearances.

Leeds are understood to value Larin at 5m, but due to the season he is having, Besiktas are believed to want double that amount!





Bielsa Pre Match Press Conference

Bielsa will select the same starting XI as last week. It's bad news for Tyler Roberts who came on for the last 25 minutes against Hull and scored a brace, whilst Bamford has not scored since his double against Millwall in January.

What does a striker have to do to displace Bamford? When a player is off form, is it fair to both the player, and the team to continue to select him? Would a spell on the sidelines do Bamford good?

Augustin has a hamstring injury. Will we ever see him in a Leeds shirt again? Is the Frenchman unhappy with his predicament of playing second fiddle to Bamford?

What about Poveda. We know he is not injured, and there is no fitness problem. Why can't he even make the bench?




Bowyer critical of FA following Casilla outcome

Ex Leeds legend, now Charlton Manager Lee Bowyer has been talking about the effects the racism row had on Jonathan Leko and witness Macauley Bonne. The 43yo was also highly critical it took the FA to make a decision.

He (Jonathan) wasn’t himself. He’s a bubbly lad, young lad, confident lad. He was a bit quiet for a while after.

For us then as a group we got him through that and he started to become himself again. Obviously with his injury he went back to West Brom and he’s not been around for a while, but while he was here everyone was here to support him. It’s been dealt with and everyone now and we can move on, especially Jonathan.

It’s not been fair on both clubs and all players involved to go on as long as it did, especially for Jonathan and Maca (Macauley Bonne -who was a witness). It’s too long. To have something like that hanging over you, it’s difficult. For a young player as well, 19, 20, it’s not a nice thing to have to carry.

There’s a protocol in place and everyone’s told to report it, which is the right thing to do, but there has to be support and actions taken. Moving forward, what we learn from it is that it gets dealt with quickly. I get there’s a process to be taken, but if that can get done quicker then I think its better for all party’s involved.

The FA took control of it and gave the ban, given their punishment, whatever Leeds do is up to Leeds, so I won’t comment. Any racism is not acceptable, us as a football club we work hard with ‘kick-it-out’ to prevent things like that happening, its disappointing but we have to move forward.

Morning EB et all

I think it was expected by most that Lord Bamford would start, perhaps its our fault that our Manager thinks that Bamford is part of the Royal family so must always start if fit :duno:

Big Kev can’t complain he’s injured so no way he’s even getting on the bench. Little Ian haven’t a clue wtf’s happening there.

Bowyer is absolutely correct this took far too long to sort out and if you were to believe that the corrupt, parentless EFL hate us you might start to think they did it on purpose, not one to spread these sort of things but it’s amazing that when Kiko was s**t they were still investigating but then when he has a decent game they suddenly can make a decision :shhh:

Morning Ratscoot

It would do Bamford good to have a few weeks rest to get his head together imo.

I reckon there is more to the big Kev supposed injury then meets the eye. He was benched for the entire 90 minutes v Reading whilst Bamford couldn't hit a barn door. I reckon there has been a falling out!!!

Morning pal

And the infamous Court case wasn't the first time.

I recall that just before Bowyer left Charlton for Leeds he got in a fight, and smashed up a McDonalds. I can't remember if it was racially instigated though...

and also a certain incident when he was a youth player at Charlton when he was involved in smashing up a McDonalds - he was violent that time but the transcript and CCTV footage was certainly illuminating regarding his views on those from an Ethnic minorities.

Morning Everyone,

Bamford again..... Charmed life that man.

How many games is that without a goal or assist.

In the meantime we have spent £960000 so far on big Jakes loan fees so far. Not sure if we gotvhalf of Eddies fee back but add thatvto the £3M for Tyler and the £7M for Bamford - plus wages and we are shelling out a hell of a lot if money our strikers.

Case did take a long time, but that was partly due to Kiko formulating his now pointless defence.

Maybe tomorows program will have a statement by Leeds on the situation.

Bowyer - who I intensley loathe--- has every right to defend his player.
'We can wait for the next game with serenity'

'I am quite clear in my mind that one has to feel sincere love for those he leads, and if he doesn't feel it naturally, then he must learn how to feel it' Marcelo Bielsa

It is not BAD NEWS for Tyler. Bamford is the flavour of the month, and is plainly evident everybody's sick ofthe flavour of the month. Tyler does not want to become the flavour of the month, cos folks say we have had this taste so long we are bored of it, we want something different, some exciting new flavour, something to titilate our tongues.

So how we cried out for some French flavour, but it is not being stocked on the shelves, perhaps something has gone wrong with quality control. Then we wanted something exotic, something with Columbian flair, something that we could smack our lips on, but it turned out to be only advertising. There was brief release of a new flavour and everybody got excited and thought we want more of that, but again the head office were seeing some problems in the production line, so they decided to continue with the product that has positioned them as 2nd best in the country.

Never let good taste stand in the way of style.

Set in Hebdon Bridge.
I was watching The Yorkshire Farm the other day about shepherdess Amanda Owen who has nine children and they live on a farm in the Yorkshire Dales (one of the highest farms in the UK). The second eldest lad, Miles, was wearing a Leeds training top in the episode i saw.
Good lad.
Proper bleak and remote where they are as well.
The older children have a 2 hour bus ride to school in Richmond every day and back again obviously.
How she and her husband run a 2000 acre farm and bring up 9 kids is beyond me.

How can Roberts be benched in favour of Bamford, when Bamford has been the starting player ahead of Roberts all season?
We're going up like there is no gravity!

Unless TR comes on and scores another 2 or 3 the starting lineup won't change for the last 10 games.
