If it works he will be hailed as a tactical genius
If it fails he will be crucified. He is sticking to First principles.
Generate emotion and entertain. How to generate some interest in a dead rubber.
Full of unexpected surprises. We don't call him el loco for nothing
At the end of the day rab we all want to watch our best players and we want to win the game. I dont see Kiko as e entertainment to be honest, I see him as a potential calamity. I'd be more interested in watching tonight's game if our excellent keeper was playing. But, whatever they are, Bielsa has his reasons and has made his choice. I can only hope that Kiko proves us all wrong, but he hasn't done so before, we shall see.

My feeling is that Kiko will be sold/released in the summer so Bielsa is giving him a farewell appearance and judged it to be better doing it away from ER so that we don't get our 'supporters' booing him. Fully expect Pablo to get a farewell performance at ER.

Apparently according BT sports Leeds have conceded more goals than anyone else in the league.

Not going well is it?

Hope Casilla has a good game - but unlikely.

Getting sent off and / or gifting a goal - very likely.

The most unpredictable goalie in the modern game currently.

Well in doing so he may be raising it at some a bit closer to home.

This is the night that Tyler Roberts will come off the bench and score a goal causing total confusion in this forum. It is all part of Bielsa's master plan.

Feel sorry for Meslier & Pascal Swannie.

I know their time will come but that omission must be a kick in the teeth for our two young lads.

Otherwise it's a strong team particularly offensively.

Afternoon all, or perhaps it’s morning in this trippy surreal world.

Casilla? Wtf? You got to hand it to Marcelo, he keeps us on our toes. 😁

Yeah, bit shite on them two. Meslier is also building all kinds of records for clean sheets for a young goalie, etc, don't like disrupting winning sides unless it's absolutely necessary.

Lets hope he doesn't have a stinker or the majority of us will be fuming.

Hope this is the last we'll see of him.

I’m watching the Southampton/Leeds channel, so why are Sky feeding me a menu of Man United drivel?
