Best performance of the season last night. I think Alex Neil is living somewhere I want to visit if he believes the game was even up until the second goal.

Couldn't fault a single player last night, once the first 15 minutes were rode out they never looked back.

The amazing stat for me personally is that we've only conceded one goal at home in the league after four games. Which was a penalty too.

Quietly confident that nobody will leave Elland Road with 3 points this season!

Think we’re all maybe getting slightly carried away a little with our form at the moment. Don’t want to put a dampener on things but every team goes through a sticky patch. Hopefully ours won’t be the last 3 months of the season due to burn out.

one thing pleases me the most looking back over season so far and someone else said it on here. its our ability to fight and rough it up. last season under TC we played some lovely football but also folded like a deck of cards. this year we are playing even better yet with grit. just watched game back gaian pontus and BFP really impressed me. BPF gets better every week. still not a patch on felix the cat!

It took us longer to fold last season. Hold on guys. Admittedly we look tougher but we still have a long way to go.

Last night made me a happy man. Reading this forum did so again, reading how chipper it has made the rest of you. Trying not to get carried away, but it's getting harder by the week. Daring to believe a little. Enjoy and savour it gents. MOT.

i know it's getting harder not to believe ain't it? as ardrian charles says it is the hope that kills you!

And he will be backed. What last night demonstrated is that if you put out a team that commits 100% to the cause you will have Elland Road rocking. Have not had atmosphere like that for a little no long time. As they say. build it and they will come.

Fantastic performance and really pleased for Roberts. Delighted for Cooper, last season when he kept getting sent of I agreed with a post that he was possibly the worst CH to wear the white shirt. Whilst he will never turn into Paul Madely what character and leadership to come back. Finally, I had honestly never heard of Bielsa before and was both excited and intrigued when Ed001 was saying how fortunate we are. My Dad always spoke of seeing John Charles play like watching an immortal? Well I will be boring my grandsons with tales of how the ‘great Bielsa’ came to manage us!

Think he is the best thing to happen to us for decades. Previous managers/ coaches irrespective of ability have had the fear factor of losing the job and were reluctant to make changes. This guy has total belief in himself and his philosophy which shows in the way the players are responding. He has no fear of the sack as he will walk into another top job. The best thing is he likes projects and we are his project as long as Radz backs him.

{Ed001's Note - it is nice to see my name mentioned on here without abuse following it as well - Bielsa truly is a miracle worker if he can achieve that!!}

How fabulous! The football is beautiful to watch when we are at our sparkling free flowing best, quick one touch passing, movement, pace, pressing, tackling, we have toughened up this year as we proved last night and against teams like Middlesbrough and Millwall its a joy to watch at the moment, really chuffed for the boy Roberts watch him fly now! Outstanding performances from all the players and looking confident and Solid at the back! Not getting carried away yet on to brum come on you super whites! MOT brothers 😎.

Pontus seems to be back to his best as well, did you see him celebrate a tackle as if he'd scored in front of the kop?

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Sep 2018 12:34:22
Pontus was awsome last night, as was Cooper to be fair. 5 goals conceded in the league, second lowest total. We have had a fair few squeaky moments, and our style means that we are likely to be stretched at the back at times but there is a real commitment and determination to the defending that often saves the day.

very true DJ and yes pontus was great which pleased me as i was worried he wanted out. last night was form oftwo seasons agao.

Did not go to the match tonight so would be interested to hear. After reading a few pundits scores there appears to be one who, tho not low, is regularily the lowest score. Alioski. Does he deserve it?

Agree2 0Disagree

He was probably the poorest player tonight. He does lots of good stuff, but it’s often let down by the final ball, offside or ball going out of play. He was stronger earlier in the season. I’ve seen Jack Clarke play live three times now and against obviously weaker opposition, he has looked as good a player but with perhaps a more consistent final product. Clarke’s weakness is probably his fitness, he’s still building it up and I’m not sure he could put in a full shift in that position in the way Bielsa wants him to play. I’d like to see him gradually coming in for Alioski and getting some magnets time as the season goes on.

I think from memory that Alioski, struggled a bit last year after the international break, in fact I think he was given a few games off.

Agree2 0Disagree

i am baised, i like him

offers pace, can beat a man, hit a pass, get an assist scores (all facts) . he is caught offside and can get final ball wrong which frustrates. but he offers a lot. i would also like to say he worries oppents and is busy. I use last week as good example, every time aliski and saiz got the ball wall fans worried. for me this speaks voloums. also said I can see why some would get annoyed with him. but for me one of our better players as he makes things happen. this said harrision was different class tonight and saiz is one of best in the league.

I like Alioski a lot too! Saw him in his first few games and immediately thought as you. Just wonder if he might need a rest every now and again to freshen him up and show him that there is some competition for his role. I think there are a lot of similarities between Alioski and Jack Clarke, Alioski just has the physical edge and experience at the moment. At the moment we’re comparing them against different opposition, but I think we’ve got cover for the position.

Agree1 0Disagree

Alioski is frustrating at times but does a lot of work for the team and has the class to be better than he is at the moment. Saying that Clarke will be playing in his place next season, maybe end of this one.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Sep 2018 09:22:55
Ali a better player this season than last, he has stopped the rolling around, but I do think he needs to be rested .
Every time he goes off on Inter break he comes back off, whether Clarke is worth a go as Spanish suggested then I'm sure Mb will give it a go .
Really pleased for Roberts to.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Sep 2018 12:01:46
Gotta say, I'm totally pro Alioski. He does have his slack moments in games, but I don't think his desire or effort can ever be questioned, which is pretty much all you can ask for from a player. Clarke will definitely have him looking over his shoulder soon tho, which can only be a positive thing.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Sep 2018 12:23:35
I'm not so sure we should be getting on at Alioski for the offsides, he gets in some good positions and doesn't get the ball played to him quickly enough.

Agree1 0Disagree

thats a good point stafford, think sometimes he is a step ahed of rest of team. and the oppositiion back line. i agree spansih think he could do with rest and be subbed early. that is my one compaitn with MB i'd like to see early subs when possible. for me the second the second goal went in i'd take saiz and alisko off and brought on clake and endmonson (moved roberts back) . think roberts could also cover aliski place when roofe back. that said i don't want to see him dropped and think he is one of our most important players fo making thing shappen but very excited to see clarke in action.

Just got back from Elland Road, wonderful night! So pleased we got Preston back for the cup defeat. They were another good test for us, needed to hang in there and Coopers goal gave us a bit of breathing space.

Great team performance, Saiz, made things happen, Harrison had a superb first half, and Roberts! So pleased, klich´s night to miss a couple. Cooper and Pontus awesome!

Bielsas approach is so straightforward . The players know the roles and where they fit in, so players coming into the team fit into a slot and the plays remain the same.

Let's not forget that Roberts is the third choice striker, and Harrison is deputising for Hernandez.

Clarke and Edmondson never warmed up, so it looked like, Dallas, Forshaw and Baker were the only subs that were going to come on. He's just warming them up and giving them exposure to match day experience.

Watched the match live and must say was a solid performance again. BPF and Harrison improving every game. Made up for Roberts, deserved his goals and think he will push on from now. So impressed with the style of play. KP, Coops and Pontus looked solid. Everyone free to attack. Fair play to Preston they came to play football and gave us a couple of scares but we just bossed it again. Good to see Forshaw getting some time on pitch. This Bielsa guy certainly knows what he is doing. Onwards and upwards.
