Positive

It might stop teams going so negative against us - if you set up negative and go a goal behind then it is very hard to change the team into an attacking mindset. Going defensive has only worked against us because we have missed chances, it has never stopped us creating chances.

Negative

Teams will still go defensive because they have seen what happens when Leeds have a bit of space to play football.

Positive: First 5-0 under Bielsa
Negative: Still 4 games left
What I want from an owner: 1. Ambition. 2. Wage bill control. 3. Cut spending on loan fees. 4. Better scouting. 5. Get bigger fees for our best players. 6.No ego.

Positive: +5 in the goals tally (GD being worth an extra point if it comes down to it)

Negative: no-one was at ER to see such a great team performance

Positive. The confidence is oozing out of the team, from front to back.

Negatives. Roberts below par today.

Positive: Too many to mention, but the play of Costa and Bamford stands out. If those two can maintain this over the last four games, we are going up as champions.

Negative: If I had to nit pick, it would be the quality of our corners.

The Stoke manager summed it up perfectly when he said that the only positive
he could take from the game was that he hoped he would never play a team
like Leeds ever again.
