Breakfast Debate The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Friday 20th November) Latest injury news from Elland Road

Post by Ellandback1 »



Good Morning. It's Friday 20th November, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...


Unconfirmed report states Leeds Utd quartet to miss Gunners clash

Unformed reports on social media are claiming that Leeds may be without four key players for the visit of Arsenal on Sunday. Kalvin Phillips is recovering from a shoulder injury while Diego Llorente, Rodrigo and Ezgjan Alioski are battling groin injury, illness, and a hamstring injury respectively. Rodrigo has been self isolating having caught the covid 19 virus, but there are doubts that he is 100 percent fit.

How much fitness can a professional footballer lose in two weeks? I can't think of another club that wouldn't or hasn't thrown one of their most influential players straight back into the starting line up! There's only so much fitness a player is going to recoup in training. Surely the best way for Rodrigo to get fit is to play 70 minutes on Sunday.

Diego Llorente has now been sidelined since 11th October (40 days). This is his longest injury absence in the 27 year olds's entire career. According to Phil Hay, Llorente has been training at Thorp Arch this week, so perhaps he'll make the bench





Cresswell rewarded with new contract

Charlie Cresswell has been rewarded with a new two and a half year contract, keeping him at Elland Road until 2023, when he'll be the grand old age of 20! By this time, it is expected that the central defender will be major part of the first team. The U19 England International has recently been promoted to the U23's where he has played seven times this season so far. Talking to LUTV after signing his deal he said...

I’m over the moon to sign a new contract. This is a club very close to my heart, so I’m delighted to be staying here. I want to impress the manager and hopefully I can get on the bench for a couple of games and make the FA Cup squad.




Warnock slams Northern Ireland boss for over usage of players

Boro Manager Neil Warnock has slammed the demands placed on Leeds United's Stuart Dallas and Boro's Paddy McNair durings their recent outings for Northern Ireland. Warnock told talkSPORT...

I didn’t watch England last night because I watched Northern Ireland as we had Paddy McNair playing. He’s played three of the toughest games you could wish for. The play-off final and then two bloody friendlies in this Nations League. I don’t understand when you’ve got nothing to play for how him and Dallas can play every minute of every game.

There’s something wrong somewhere where you can’t bring a young lad in to the side when you’ve got nothing to play for. You’ve got to think of the players. We helped them by keeping him (Paddy) off training ahead of the first game and they were unlucky as they should have got through to the Euro’s.

After that though, yeah okay play him in one of the games but not two of them. I can’t accept that, not when there’s nothing to play for, although they’ve probably got no-one else who can take free-kicks!

I hope this is a joke & we're not going to gift more points to the opposition by not playing our best players.

Only Llorente should be exempt from the lack of fitness scenario

These players should be as fit as a butchers dog

The likes of Billy, Norm, Paul & Big Jack would be turning in their grave if they were aware of such nonsense!

According to Phil Hay, Kalvin Phillips is absolutely busting a gut as he wants to play.

Good news is Arsenal's new signing Thomas Partley is out injured with a thigh strain

Sead Kolasinac and Mohamed Eleneny, who both tested positive for coronavirus during the international break, will also be absent

Morning Folks.

Warnock echoing what many of us thought.
If ever a player needs a rest it will be Dallas.
But that looks impossible with Ali doubtful.

KP and Rod are the key to our season, we need them both fit and on form. I do wonder if in the long run Rod will be happy playing as a 10. In his mind it may affect his International career.

'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

Makes you wonder whether we want footballers or robots with the fitness debate, gone are the days of injections every week to get a team out 64

I was thinking the very same this morning Chilli.

Short odds if the bookies have taken note of our defending this season

60+ league/cup games a season on muddy pitches playing with a heavier ball with nowhere near the same fitness regime players endure these days

Several of our players will be lucky to make 30 appearances for Leeds this season MJ

Dallas will have had a few days to recharge the batteries and will be chomping to get on the park on Sunday.

Sadly, playing for NI looks like a less demanding task than playing Bielsaball in the PL. :verysad:

Plus Dallas is one of our most energetic hard working players
