Only watched the MOTD highlights but the big positive is the way we are creating excellent chances. Last season we'd often domiante and create 20 chances but when you looked back not many were great chances. This season we seem better at carving team's open. Negative today would be that I feel Messlier should have done better with 2 of the goals. The penalty went through him and also the shot that went in it looked like he should have saved it. MOTD didn't show him making any saves so I may be being harsh but it is a concern for me.

Negative - If we take our foot off the gas, other teams take advantage very quickly
Oh dear, cannot believe I am saying this this but I do so agree dear hector :shock:

Looks bad as a stat I agree... but consider 3 penalties, 2 highly dubious and Van Dijk's goal could have been waved off. We are only looking at 4 serious goals.

Mate, looking at some of the penalties conceded across the board there's going to be some serious backlash from all corners if it continues. These new rule changes are infuriating everybody.

Totally agree mate, the rate its going it will become as bad as "diving"...many of these top league strikers have the ability to just flick the ball up onto the defenceman's arm, its a joke... the other one I cannot get my head around is ...allowing play to continue for obvious offsides then raising the flag after the score or miss... beyond baffling to me :shock:

Positive: the self-belief in the squad given the step up in quality required.

Negative: we really need a number 10 to support and then succeed El Mago.

Positive: Bamford silencing the critics and Helda Costa chipping in with a double.

Negative: Leeds are leaking goals.

Need a few clean sheets to steady the ship and a home crowd for buoyancy.

I just don't undertsand why they can't allow a few fans in when you have people in shops walking past each other etc.

If for example Leeds were allowed 1000 fans in then then that is 1 fan for 40 seats (say the stadium is 40,000 for easyier maths). That mean that every person could sit in a block of 40 seats so 3 seats in every direction from them would be empty - same for the next person so assuming everyone sits in the middle seat of their block of 40 then there is 6 seats in every direction between person. If people still don't feel safe they can also wear a mask. So straightaway 1000 fans can be allowed in pretty safely. Expand it a bit further and you can say everybody coming in can bring in up to 4 people from their household (and they would have to sit directly next to the first person, so 1 to each side and 1 in fron and 1 behind). So you still have a mimimum of 4 seats between them and the next group in every direction and you now have 5,000 people in the stadium with very little risk, no real crowd congestion as you would open all the automated turnstiles.
