Positive: Our players proved their quality

Negative: Set-piece vulnerability

Exactly the same, but since you said those already

+ Excellent passing and energy going forward

- The injury to Cooper, hopefully nothing serious for Klich and Phillips (pulled up late)
We've been through it all together. And we've had our ups and downs

Positives.

Those pictures were screened to the largest TV audience Leeds will have ever played to. Right around the world millions more will come on board. Our profile is on the rise.

Negatives. All those smashed Tvs in Argentina....

Positives

We took our chances!!!! And scored some cracking goals

Negatives

Look shaky at the back. generally fine, but made several mistakes and weren't punished for quite a few of them

Positive

Championship players are now premier quality, it cannot be denied

Negative

Can't really think of one to be honest, that's about as good a defence can play on 2 days training..

Positive: Proof positive that Bielsaball is going to work on this level. We are going to wreak havoc on the bottom half of this league.

Negative: Not enough time for our newcomers to get up to speed and it cost us.

Positive: Meslier.

Negative: Rodrigo.

But it won’t always be like this. If we play like that all year we’ll be fine.

Positive...
Never dropped their heads, came straight back no matter what

Negative...
IMO... (not a critisism) Hernandez has to come on in the second half... much more impact after watching where he can exploit through the first half.

Positive: We came from behind three times. How many times last 2 years did it look like the game was over once we conceded?

Negative: To get nothing when we deserved something.
I promise to be positive only for 20/21 :)

Positive
In general, we looked like we belonged there.
A massive plus.

Negative
A bit shaky sometimes in defence, but as faaip said, only two days to train together.

Positively seeing 2/3 players stepping up to the mark and looking very capable.
Negative ..knowing that the top premier sides will match Leeds fitness level for 90 mins.

Positive - First 11 from last season good enough (based on one game but still)
Negative - Not good enough cover
Every game I predict a 3 - 1 Leeds win, I am traditional like that.

+ Fearless play against the best from our so-called "championship mid-table" team. Swashbuckling confidence at times.

- Not sure Bielsa had it quite right defensively. Gave away possession too easily sometimes, and allowed them into our box in numbers. Easy to blame the makeshift defence, but we defend as a team and it wasn't quite working today. Even though it was against Liverpool, I still expect this aspect to improve.

Positives- gave a really good account of ourselves and showed that you dont have to park the bus to be competitive.

Negative- defensively a bit to open and our set piece defending is still shite.
