Don't like Dallas in cm, he isnt technically good enough

Did a decent job vs Arsenal but generally it doesnt work.
Would've preferred Rodders on from the start.
Maybe still looking to shore things up after the negativity of the defeats.
Expect Rodders and Poveda on second half.

Bielsa is all about rewarding good performance.

Would have been harsh to drop Alioski after he was arguably MOTM against Arsenal

True, and consistency is good.
Seems like our £16 million man Costa is out of favour

Looks like a fairly attacking bench with Rodrigo, Costa, Roberts and Poveda!

I agree, Bielsa realises we have to keep things tighter in this league.

Still amazing though we spend a record fee £27m on a striker/forward & he can't get in our first XI

Could only happen at Leeds

Afternoon troops, I hear the reasoning but I feel we'd be stronger with Rodrigo starting, so why not play him? He will change the dynamic in our favour as soon as he comes on.

So we have £64m of talent not in the first XI :shock:

This is similar to the Roberts/Pablo scenario all over again

What is going on with this Roberts situation??

Shackleton is the much better player and doesn’t even make the bench.

I do and so does Marcelo. I'd imagine that if Rodrigo had Covid his fitness for 90 will still be suspect.

Me neither.
Had time to develop under MB and hasn't.
Gelhardt should make the bench.

Good player Roberts, still young and striker is his best position. I suppose I'm the only person here that agrees with Marcelo on this point I guess
