Bit of a gap and 4 in a row which is very impressive.
Nice to get a penalty but feel roofe should have had 4, missed 2 sitters.

I agree Shadwell, I think that is why Roofe almost fought Hernadez to take the penalty! He was keen to make his figures look better.

When you look at this group of payers, only one key area to improve on that would make an enormous difference to our ability to close out games. Strike rate of goals from opportunities. We should have got 1/ 2 goals early in that game yesterday. If we can score more, the dynamic of the game changes and we don’t have so many scary moments in the last 10 minutes. Our fitness, hard work and team spirit is still pulling us through, but find a way of scoring more and we will be the finished product.

Agree Spanish. We look unstoppable in the first two thirds but as soon as we get near goal it starts to unravel. It's not that we play badly. It's just that we do not seem to have a killer touch. Our decision making seems to fail us. Pass when we should shoot etc. I feel maybe a little greedy. We are second and playing with a patched up team (maybe were getting spoiled) but I look at some of the draws and think "if only".

You’re right, all of you. But if we had that clinical edge in the final third, we’d be winning the champions league. But we are still fighting our way out of the second tier of English football, on a budget. It’s not going to all click at once, but we are getting there! Plus grinding out a result below par like yesterday is a massive positive.

I'll take a striker that converts 2 chances from 4 any day of the week.

Bright, honestly not looking beyond the Championship, I think we might need a few more tweaks before the champions league beckons. Just looking at what we need to do to improve this year and ease the worrying! Doesn’t even need to be a new player, because we have brown and Bamford to play with as well. I want us to nail promotion this year, the opportunity is there and we have worked so hard to get it. I’m sure the comments about scoring more are probably what bielsa would say himself.

This is why we need a fit Bamford, he will be much more clinical I feel.

Alf, certainly good to have him fit and breathing down Roofes neck, particularly if what Wex is saying is true and he is earning double what Roofe is earning!

Just watched Brom v villa and I wonder if Rodriguez will get stick for hand using like roofe. Great draw result for us though and if can win tonight be a nice gap opening.

I really think villa getting Smith in is impressive, he seems a very good manager and I think villa will be top 2, they do concede a few goals but very impressive forward line with bollasi, Abraham, el hadsi? Their wide men just run at defenses and can go past players, cross and hit the target. Unfortunately alioski can't do any of that, but he try's hard.

I hope bielsa just saying the right things re Jan investing and players not needed, hope rads/ Orta have a small list as we do need 2-3 players. Think roofe done well with 8 goals, but most strikers in this team would hit a few, top scorers in this league now on 14 and feel we still need a forward, hope Bamford can, but not convinced with him. Will Izzy make the bench.

Robbie Gotts and Callum Nicell promoted to first team training. Good move by Bielsa.

Robbie was a good bet, great little player, real battler, full of energy. Not the tallest but goes like the Duracell bunny!

Callum, is a more interesting move. When you go to the under 23d and watch and listen, you can pick up a fair idea of who is on the up and who isn’t quite impressing. Callum is definitely in the former group and as such has leapfrogged a few others . Although midfield, he has been used across the back, so is another versatile pick.

These moves are the flip sides of the bad injury news, opportunities for lads to shine and prosper. If you were a young kid and Leeds wanted you, it’s these kind of moves that make the club an attractive prospect.

Both Chelsea and city after Clarke.
$30 mill plus 5 yr loan would do me.
I'm hoping Clarke won't let it effect his form.

Hopefully will make him want to impress even more. This is why it is so important for the club to win promotion or come close to it. So we can offer the Byrams, Cooks, Taylor’s and Clarke’s of this world another realistic option, playing in the premiership with us, instead of a lowly ranked premiership club or lost in Cities third reserves!

Clarke is unlikely to stay to play 5 years championship or league one football, but he could be part of a developing Leeds premiership team.

He's already told 'em to do one, now he's getting some first team game time I don't see why he'd change his mind.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Dec 2018 09:56:57
If Clarke goes its because the club are happy to sell him. Lads happy where he is, maybe different in summer if we do not go up.

Well done Pablo, PFA fans championship player of the month. For me an exceptional ambassador for the club as a person and professional. Like Bielsa, doesn't forget his roots. A part owner of Castellon, Spanish second division club, who he wants to help again when he finishes his Leeds career. He trains with them when he goes back to Spain on holiday! Pure class. Some of his touches are my stand out memories so far this year, the never gave up run and cross against derby, the lovely glancing headed goals and of course, the not as easy as it looked, finish from Young Clarke. First name on the team sheet for me and one who we really don't want injured again!

I often look at the reports of Leeds eyeing up possible transfers who are 30+ years old and say to myself "No! No! No! ". Then I watch Pablo and think "What do I know?
Form is temporary but class is permanent. Hernandez may be displaying the former but it is the latter that shines through week after week.

Bielsa is the key with regard to who and how many players we manage to get hold of in Jan. I really don't believe that he will be a manager to put up with players he doesn't want or think he needs. And he'll be strong enough to ask for what he wants.

His planning is based on up to 4 key injuries at a time. He has now had a chance to see whether that is realistic in this league or not.

Furthermore he has had the chance to look at and assess the players in the under 23s at first hand.

The amount of injuries we are having is testing out the strength in depth and giving Bielsa a real reality check before the market opens again. He will know that if he finishes Jan saying that he is happy with the playing squad and the recruits, then it will be clear where the responsibility lies.

Don't give up yet guys, it's not how many injuries that we have that is important, it's the effect it has on performance and results. We can't do anything until Jan, so how we do in the remaining games this year, will show the way ahead. In a way, the sheer amount of injuries might be a blessing in disguise of sorts because it focuses attention on the issue of squad depth.

We're still in the top two, let's see where we are by New Year!

Martyn No matter. Up step Jamie Shackleton and I can see another youngster taking his place on the bench probably that Leif lad. New Year will be like a signing bonanza! Brown Bamford Berardi Cooper and Dallas! Get me that Gomez fella and I don't see us finishing below 2nd.

Young Madison seems to have turned into the invisible man, there was loads of rumours about him pre-season but just nothing at all since then, is he injured? (daft question really, or he'd be in our physio room right now)

I hope it’s just media talk. He would just get lost in the City set up like so many others but with some degree of short term or more financial security. This is one of the reasons why promotion is important to me and I believe to the club. It will give us more to offer and allow us the chance of retaining more of the talent we are developing for longer.

It's more carp from the S*n, like Pep would PERSONALLY be keeping tabs on the lad. No wonder Citeh are so poor eh?
