Whilst I am still a fan of Bielsa's I just have to question the wisdom of playing Dallas at Left Back. As a back up Rt midfielder, maybe. As a back up winger maybe but when we have a Left Back already waiting (with first team experience) why play Dallas? Even Alioski has even shown that he has the skill set to play there, and even more damning. what does it say to Pearce?

Why play Dallas at all.

i am also a fan of MB but he is a good football manager not a good and can make mistakes. many on here have shouted down many who dare to question him but he has made a lot of mistakes which he has admitted. trouble is if pearce ain't good enough which MB clearly thinks why did he not get back up as dallas and beradi ain't the answer. no manager will turn Dallas, KP, Beradi (as a left back) and cooper into promotion players they just ain't good enough. MB watched us last season so he must of known this? maybe we don't have the money we thought?

Think the big thing MB should have sussed now is how competitive the league is . You cannot go out cavalier, away from home we need to set up more defensively in mid field, 3 centre mid field, one up top and two supporting 4-5-1. Thought their pitch looked really small today, no space.

I think today's results showed how competitive this league will be this year. West Brom lost at Wigan and only had 7 shots of which 1 was on target. Blackburn played well against us today and let's not forget that win took them into the play offs as well.

A disappointing performance from us but again, even given that, we could have got something out of the game. Not fair to criticize BPF today, he kept us in the game and gave us a chance!

Those of you who keep on saying, don't play the kids, other teams experienced players are just the kids that someone had been prepared to give an opportunity so they can gain experience. Jack Clarke is a kid, not done much wrong on his two chances, not scared of running at people and causes panic. I'm f you buy in players above him, when does he get his chance?

Pearce is another kid, who many think should be given a chance over older more experienced players!

Age doesn't matter ability and aptitude to play at this level does. Some 18 year olds have it and some 28 year olds don't!

Finally, if anybody thinks we are going to buy 5 experienced championship, match winning players in Jan, then I'll habe a pint of what you're drinking! Will the players be available, will we have the money and will Bielsa want it! No it's not his style.

George has it right today, management mistakes not sorted properly during the match. The teams worse performance this year for me and Bielsas as well.

Agree Spanish, can't see why Pearce hasn't started with Douglas out. Thought he did a good job when given his chance last season.

I'm a voice for a more tried and trusted when looking at signings, that's not to say that I do not like to see younger players given a chance, if you read what I said I mentioned having to play players' out of position or use u23 squad players .
What I was stating is to some degree you can almost know what you are going to get with a player who has performed well in the championship or Prem.
It's not a given but better four quality players than ten hopefuls, also my worry is come November the games come thick and fast and being able to rest certain players could prove a wise move.

Let's be honest though we have lost bamford, berardi ayling Douglas roofe Hernandez Harrison in recent games and some are just coming back to fitness, and let's be honest with a small squad there big players to be missing . Once all back I'm sure we start getting some wins back on the board again . Hopefully I January bielsa can evaluate who isn't working and who is and add some more players to squad . The season under monk I feel not strengthening in the january when we were doing well is what cost us later on in season.

well it's the same old song but with a different manger now TC is gone.

i have said we are better than last year but every game I am less sure and think it might be a carbon copy.

cooper starts like a defending god to then come true to form and be found wanting

berdia never the answer at left back, dallas never the answer full stop.

still need to replace woods oals although I am bamford fan

Kp not the problem today but we do need a midfeilder

one thing i actually thought BPF played well today and is better option than this time last year

the manager while has class has made a lot of mistakes this season (few he has openly admitted) and today was the same, mate listened on radio and they said Blackburn did a number on us and found us out

I did say I thoght we would be 5th-9th and it winds me up when leeds look like they might make me right

the manager needs to wise up and needs to be backed up with players. if he was happy with our cb options he won't be now and needs head looking at if he don't get a cb in.

A Bamford fan? Why? That sentence spoiled your whole post bw!
It’s the players inability and managers naievity.
In simple terms for Corkeys sake.
Drop the wussies Saiz. Alioski. Dallas.
Get a new system. Don’t ask one player to own the midfield. KP should have Forshaw with him.
We will not make play offs but for once I’m going to be patient. I admire Bielsa and think he will get us up. But I think he over estimated his ability and the players skill level and under estimated how hard this league is.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 15:37:07
his goal record for us ain't bad Aus and had proven track record. I will turn it and say why are you not a bamford fan, I would say he i the only proven goalscorer at the club.

i can't comment on midfeld due to obvious reasons but think defence needs looking at as always cooper can play well but sooner or later falls off every year.

The team line up isn't much different to last season and Bielsa brought a different approach and we set off like a train, it was great to watch. But a lot of us on here were worried about the lack of investment in the squad meaning a lack of strength in depth. But after a few good results we had Kinnear gloating in his programme notes that him and the powers that be knew best. Well my message to him is that I do think we have a quality Manager who could be the one to get us up, but if he, Radz and Orta are clever enough to do it on the cheap, they are very much mistaken or deluded.

agree, these comments were ridiclued few weeks back but now look founded. my message to them would be follow my osts and save them sixs weeks.

Agree with Berm on Bamford and Cooper, surprised Forshaw is not getting as much game time .
I can't see how anyone at the top of Lufc can gloat!
Maybe once the league has been won until that time I would shut up.
So many players brought in last year have either been sold or put out on loan, if last year we had gone for about 4 half decent players I can not believe that either the transfer or wage cost would have been more than it was.

Premiership? You're having a laugh. Huge but huge selection errors by Bielsa. Roberts through the middle Roofe wide. Rubbish. Roberts not our best there - Roofe never plays well out wide. Dallas at full back. Rubbish. He isn't great as winger and poor at full back - why when we have better natural full backs would you play him? . We should have won this fixture but lots of possession not enough chances. Playing the ball out of defence - good. Basic defending bad. Cooper?

Agree4 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 14:14:57
Got to agree. that's what you get when you pick players out of position. Dallas at best should be on bench. Pearce must be thinking wtf do i have to do, Dallas before me. Clarke should be in Alioskis position now surely. To have so much possession and do nothing with it is a bit criminal. To be honest the whole team played pretty poorly which should not happen. Still early days but if we do not start winning these type of matches we are going to struggle to keep pace.

The thin squad will run out of puff.
Other teams get better and we resemble a helium balloon going down slowly.

What do you do? . add helium.
Season consistency wins the championship form here.
Dont shoot the manager. give him the tools!

You think?

It was the amount of miss-placed passes and when dealing with either corners or set plays near the penalty area .
There midfield seemed to have more players, no it's because certain players were not tracking back and putting in a shift .
For me Roofe looked slow.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 14:57:54
This was a pretty poor performance, passing way off key, players out of place, need replacement players in January then push on, pick it up boys no heads down.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 17:09:36
Just got back from game. Second half marginally better, how Dallas gets a start is beyond me. Why not put Beradi in his natural position and stick Alioski on the left with Clark on the wing. To me Roberts should have been subbed at half time (Sorry don't rate him at all) and move Roofe central with Pab coming on.
I think the players short changed the fans today, big style!

Great game. Fantastic. Did you see the shots on goal. 15. Love it.
Happy tonight.
I tell ya. One day somebody will pay.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 13:56:20
Roberts was anonymous. Roofe needs to start as the main striker . Alioski again just isn't up to it . Shame Harrison was out injured . We need our strongest first 11 fit and firing really as the depth just isn't there .

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 14:53:39
why shame harrison is out injured he is hardly a world beater one good game and anaomous the rest. if harrision is the answer then promotion is not the question.

20 Oct 2018 15:15:41
Mighty Squad depth not there for what? Win every game? Never lose a game? Automatic promotion? It was never there but it is looking better than last season. We are 4th and Blackburn are a decent side. Dallas is what he's always been, a mid-table championship midfielder. Put him at LB and he's even worse. Alioski needs dropping for Clarke. I blame Bielsa for today. Pearce should be ahead of Dallas, Clarke deserves more minutes and it's time Edmondson was a part of every matchday 18. You do need to get real though. We've started well overall. Depth not there yet but we are close. Today more about Bielsa's selection which in my opinion was off. Retaining Alioski more of a howler than starting Dallas at LB.

how we beter than last year table don't lie think wevwere better off last season at this point.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 13:35:45
Looks like we are starting to follow the pattern of last couple seasons . Regardless of the coach U can't hide we are lacking quality and depth on the playing squad still .

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 13:56:02
100% right.
We don't have enough of a squad. and NO it's NOT time to use kids and "give them a go"!
As I've said SO many times, we're 5 quality, experienced players short. This is turning into an Aston Villa style season, with not enough wins and too many draws.
I hope the money-minders open the cheque book in January and we might have a chance.
Sad. beaten 2-1. Quote "the mini wobble continues".68% possession and no decisive strike. #
Wonder what the Banter council will think of this?

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 13:58:44
Couldn't agree more. Anyone can see squad is to light lack of ambition from the owner and lack of investment in a league that is there for the taking.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 14:06:44
Exactly. my 16 year old is a brill player. maybe Leeds should "give him a go".? . NOT.
This is a league of experience, tough, talented players who have been there before. not a kids league. Get the right number of players in, get into the Premiership and do it bloody right!

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 14:32:17
Metisse, when you talk about not playing kids are you saying we are playing too many kids, if so who? Or are you saying thAt the asnswer isn’t playing more kids in the future. Don’t understand what you mean and who you are criticizing!

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 14:43:11
Look at many of the posts about putting inexperienced players in.
Lasts years team of dullards was added to by what new entrants? . if it wasn't enough last year it won't this year even with Bielsa. Too much hope and not enough fact.
Look at the bench and the rest of the team eligible to play.
Do you have confidence in them?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 14:44:07
Wex has been given a hard time over comments regarding are squad and I for one have agree and stood by him .
When you have to either play a winger or an under23 as right back then in my book we are always going to be struggling .
Cooper is as bad as a captain as he is in defence, all the players that have been linked with us and a good few are proven championship players we could have done with at least three players and that would have covered injuries etc.
To have such a small squad is madness in my book and I do believe if this is not addressed we will suffer further as the season progresses.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 15:21:09
Disagree guys. Squad depth not why we lost today but selection. Squad depth could use minor improvement but not reason why we lost today. Stats prove it.
