Under 23s playing at Elland Road this Friday at 1pm.

Bielsa has said he has two goals for the international break, 1. Rest for those that need it ( and presumably not playing internationals! )

2. Getting those who need it fit to play.

On that basis, Friday's game provides an opportunity, hopefully not like With Bamford! I reckon Forshaw, Beradi, Baker, Pearce, Shackleton could all get time . Hernandez and Roofe, should they be risked?

Will Brown be close to having some minutes?

Brown way off I believe not until new year.
Lewis Baker is pushing for a start in first team so I’d expect him to play and hopefully play well.

Looks like Hernandez and Roofe are going to play some part in the game. With only three substitutes, it limits the permutations, Forshaw, Baker could play whole games .
The hope is that brown is ready for the first team in the new year, so might see him getting some under 23 time in December if all is going to plan.

i know little about brown is he decent and do we honestly think he will make that much of a difference?

Not sure why we loaned him really. If not fit until next year then 3 or 4 weeks of Bielsa training will be lucky to see him before March. He is a good player but doubt if he his going to show us much this campaign.

I think Bub wanted him early so he could brainwash him in Bielsaball :)
