Breakfast Debate The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 28th July) Greenwood's set piece lights up social media

Post by Ellandback1 »



Good Morning. It's Wednesday 28th July, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...


Greenwood's set piece lights up social media

Leeds U23's kicked off their pre-season with a win against local rivals Guiseley last night at Nethermore Park. Exciting new recruit Amari Miller made his debut for the Whites, but it was Sam Greenwood that stole the plaudits, for a sublime 20 yard free kick that would have beaten most Premier leagues keepers.

Summerville opened the scoring on 19 minutes after being hacked down in the box. He stepped up himself firing a rasping shot into the bottom left hand corner giving Guiseley's keeper no chance. Their lead would not last long though - 3 minutes to be precise. The home side broke down the right wing, squared a ball to Thompson, levelling the game from close distance.

Just before half time Leeds showed their superiority. Dead ball specialist Sam Greenwood stepped up from twenty yards. With power and precision, the 19 year old delivered a missile into the top left upright sending thousands of travelling Leeds fans, and many more on social media into ecstasy.

Leeds extended their lead six minutes from time. Summerville's hard work was rewarded with an assist after finding Allen in space, in the box. The 17 year old tucked the ball away to make the game safe. Guiseley grabbed a late consolation two minutes later, but Leeds held on for the win! Long term absentee Adam Forshaw continued on the road to recovery. The 29yo played 30 minutes of the second half.


Leeds heartened by Brekalo news

Leeds have received a boost after hearing that Josip Brekalo has asked to leave Wolfsburg. Whilst the German outfit are open to letting the winger leave this summer, he is likely to spark a bidding frenzy with many top European sides credited with links to the 23 year old. He is currently valued at 15-18m, but that figure could easily rise. The Croatian winger is not just a technically gifted but has explosive pace. Other reports liken him to Arjen Robben!





Bielsa to field strong side against Lancashire rivals

Leeds travel to Ewood Park this evening to face Championship outfit Blackburn Rovers. Bielsa is expected to field a much stronger team than the one that dispatched Guiseley at Nethermore Park last night. Niall Huggins, Jamie Shackleton and Ian Poveda are all expected to play a part this evening, along with new recruit Firpo. Rovers Manager Tony Mowbray is set to unleash Ben Brereton tonight. The 22 year old forward enjoyed a successful campaign for Chile recently during the Copa America; catching the attention of both Bielsa and Orta!

The game kicks off at 7.30pm and is being streamed on LiveNow.

Brekalo compared with Arjen Robbin?

Not by anyone who watched the Euros. He was awful.

Not sure why they didn't go with the same yellow from the home shirt. Would have worked then I feel.

Very rarely slag off Leeds kits, I've liked then all including the Burgundy and the Silver and Grey but this is awful. Not keen on the yellow stripes on the White one and the blue kit is just wrong

Afternoon Folks

Cant see many buying that away shirt

Shame, though he had potential. And Bielsa seemed to like him enough to have him on the bench and use him as a sub. Bit lacking in left backs in the U23s as well aren't we?

Looks like I'm the only one who loves the new look of the away kit! Looks great! Who on earth cares if it's the same colour as a Chelsea shirt (and every other club in the world that wears blue shirts....)

Our away shirt isn't like Chelsea's home shirt. Chelsea's home shirt is like our away shirt.
