Team performance versus individual performances, playing together as a team allows you to know and cover for your team mates weaknesses, all players have weaknesses. This is where we have improved under Biesla alongside his tactics and coaching . Thought Roberts looked like he could be a real player and after a lengthy lay off with injury, he is still young, if he gets a few more games under his belt he could be a real handfull. Five players out injured, 3 of those first choice starters. Couple players last night have room for improvement. For the younger players its a leaning curve . Bielsa has only been here 3 months?

Very pleased with Roberts. He's on the verge of taking his game to the next level. I'd like to see him develop a partnership with Roofe which would mean Saiz dropping out of the starting lineup so isn't going to happen in a hurry.

Yknow. I’m happy with Bielsa formation and tactics
I’m not one for what ifs though. Every team in the league has what ifs.
So what if we have injuries and I only see Roofe and Beradi as starters. Hernandez and Bamford are bit part players.
The fact remains that we created 24 and scored 1. I’d be happy with maybe 8 and 1.
The fact remains that we should have Mullered them and didn’t. They were lucky I admit that. But did we have no other option at all than the starting 11?
And for your info Canada I watched the game at 7am totally sober which is prob better than most of you. I 100% focused on the game, players and coaching.
Leaves a number of questions in my eyes.
Will the returning players make that much diff?
Is Forshaw really that much better than kp?
Why didn’t Bielsa use subs?

Pleased with Roberts. He's a striker that doesn't score goals.

Wex Your views seem limited these days. Roberts still a teenager. Apart from Owen, Rooney and Walcott, can't remember any teenage striking sensations doing the business at top level. Yes, we could've forked out a 5m annual wage for Abel who probably would've scored a load by now but that's not Roberts' fault. He did score 2 a week ago and in my opinion is on the verge of coming good. Given his age, I'm expecting him to mature into a more accomplished player. Might not happen on Wex's urgent time but will happen on George's patient time. GO TY!

Aus we all have our opinions of course and we can differ on KP's performance yesterday but how can you possibly say Hernandez is a bit part player?
Listen to Bielsa's opinion of him. You honestly think it's a coincidence we have stopped destroying teams since he went out injured?

Here here Georgie! He is a 19 year old player, thrown in to a starting position and he’s scored two goals! Encourage our own players!

Too right Canada, Hernandez is a match winner, even if he has a quiet 90 mins, he can still win a game for you in extra time. He is an intelligent, creative player who can unlock a defence with a look and a pass, just look at any of his assists . If you think he is a bit player, have a look at the goal he created against Derby, kept chasing a lost ball and found an inch perfect pass! If you have him on the bench or on the pitch, he’s a match changer! Also if he is on the pitch alongside Saiz, he takes a bit of pressure off Saiz and creates more space that allows Saiz to perform as well!

Never mind strikers who don’t score what about supporters who don’t support!

Spanish. ha ha ha. Love it. but you know that there will be guys on here saying that they ARE supporters even if they critise. In fact it is THEIR right to critise.

Unlike Ed001"s opinion of me, I don't mind any Leeds supporter critising my team. It's only supporters of other clubs I hate doing that. I just stand by my own stance of giving 100% support to anyone that has the lucky to wear a Leeds shirt.

You have some neck Spanish. Roberts so far has costs over a million a goal. So forgive me for being a bit harsh.

Georgy boy we’ve had a few running’s mainly years back but you really are the captain of the team these days. Great post about Roberts and I’m amazed some well one can’t see his potential. I like you think his best position is behind the striker in the Saiz role so that’s another good option to have.
I realize ausman lives down under but my God his head is in the clouds! Aus how can you say Hernandez is a bit part player when he is our best player? And how is Beradi a definite starter when maybe when he’s fit again probably be on the bench?
We are going up this year I have little doubt. MOT.

Don’t worry about it axe. Ed1 can be a temperental git! I think it’s the years and years and years of not winning the league that does it. He gave others and me lots of rubbish over the years but I’m sure his Mum loves him😜
By the way Ed1 I’ve got a large bet on a Liverpool Leeds double so I literally am supporting you this year.

{Ed001's Note - so it was your coins weighing down the players today then???}

Scouse humour never dies. I was engaged to a bird from Canny Farm years back and still see her and the family when I’m across the water. Good people you lot but very touchy when it comes to football. None more touchy than you Mr Ed001!

{Ed001's Note - you would be surprised mate. There are some really touchy people around. Bill Cosby for instance. Donald Trump. Allegedly.}

Wex, a bit harsh on Roberts, he has had 4 league starts as striker and scored 2 goals! That’s not a bad strike rate for his first few games at this level. Give him a chance, are you really writing him off already?

15.) 29 Sep 2018

Not writing him off just saying he needs to justify his price tag.

Thanks Corky. I'm very pleased by the progress and one of the pleasant things I've noticed which I think has contributed to our upward form is the disappearance into the background of Kinnear and Orta.

Kinnear and Orta were in with the Leeds fans on Friday night.

He didn’t choose how much Leeds paid for him Wex, he’s done well all things considered. If you’ve watched the games and seen him play then you’d realise how unfair your comments are. How would you like him to justify his price tag exactly? Pay it back himself? He can only do what is asked of him by the manager and he’s been thrown into the deep end because of injuries to Bamford and Roofe.

What do you mean he didn't choose what we paid. I'm sure his agent had an input in his valuation.
