Playing long balls to Lasogga is a waste of time. It's unfortunate he is so big as team mates think he can handle it - he can't. He scores goals - that's it. Need a different approach when he is playing.

My tactic would be to sub him for someone else.


2.) 29 Dec 2017 10:20:47
Has no one noticed that before Lasogga arrived Leeds were flying high in the league, he starts playing and we fall apart. He gets injured and we're flying again. Get rid of him!

I just don't understand why Grot looks so poor. He is uncomfortable on the ball, he can't jump, is poor in the air and can't hold the ball up. He is a Dutch under 19 international, cost £700000 + and TC is sticking with him. He must have something to get where he is now. From what I have seen of him he would struggle in the regional amateur leagues. I am hoping playing at Elland Road or for Leeds overall has been too much him at his age and he will get used to it in time. The only other player that has looked as bad was the left back that we brought in from Swansea (Besome I think his name was) - player of the year just before he came to us but looked liked he had never seen a football when he played for us at Barnsley. Maybe some players just can't hack at Leeds

Two words hessian, cibiki, alioski It wasn't long ago people slated both these guys and now look after they settled in. Remember he's a kid at 19. A kid away from home in foreign country. Give him time it will click.


2.) 18 Dec 2017 23:48:34
Isn't that what I just said!


3.) 19 Dec 2017 02:56:36
I saw interviews with Drogba and Crouch a few years back, both said they peaked late because rapid growth spurts took them from competent footballers to ungainly, gangling and not in control of their movement. Grot feels the same to me because he is so big physically. Long term project for me that we won't see the best of for 3 or 4 years. At the end of the day though he has attributes you can't teach, worth at least the effort and time to see if he can come good, just not as first team.


4.) 20 Dec 2017 00:30:10
I agree and disagree. I was mad like h. l last Saturday but let's give the boy a chance. Still the best alternative up front when Lassogga not playing.

Look at Mo Barrow, played crap when he was with us then we send him back and he’s now at Reading playing really well!


2.) 20 Dec 2017 04:57:38
He had a crap manager when we had him.


3.) 20 Dec 2017 23:39:20
Point taken Ausman and well put 👍

As far as Sunday is concerned I cannot see TC dropping Felix - might have to at some point but not yet I think. Pennington in for Cooper. Saiz back and O'Kane as well. Roofe to keep his place but not position. Klich, Hernandz and Dallas drop to the bench. Lassoga up front. TC might also fancy bringing Anita back for Beradi. I think it will be a close call.

Dallas is good coming on later in the game, Hernandez is not good away from home and doesn't deal with being roughed up very well. Seems to be always limping. Not bad at home for the most part. Roofe is not what we up front - Too easily isolated.

Alioski needed to learn quickly about championship foot ball as do one or two others. Refs don't take too kindly to players who are always falling down and claiming free kicks. It will be interesting to see if Sheffield join in with the Millwall and Cardiff tactics and if we do what is our response.

I haven't mentioned Vierra. He is more robust and has control but passing let's him down and I think that is important to TC. However, would like to see him starting at some point. I think he would do well with Klich or O'Kane. Not sure about Phillips and him though. Experience says TC will come up with something completely different on Sunday.

Hesslian

1.) 29 Sep 2017 17:57:32
Agree with you apart from Hernandez, he is one of TCs favourites. Also agree he could do with starting from the bench but think he will be in the starting eleven.


2.) 02 Oct 2017 15:07:21
In the post match interview TC made the point that he has 3 goalkeepers to select from - maybe something to read into that but we'll see. Couple of bad results but both away from home against good teams, sure TC will have them working hard and still got to be positive


 

 

14 Aug 2017 23:50:22
In a normal season I would expect Wood to get between 15 and 20 goals in the championship -depending on how many penalties he scores. Last season I think was exceptional and I don't see him doing it again although I hope he does. Let's see in May if he is still here.

I hope Forshaw does well but there is always a doubt when players drop down pecking orders. Lasogga was top once, Bridcutt was great but he slipped down as hasn't reached his former heights. There are lots of players who have a good few seasons then fade never to return. That's the danger of getting players who lose favour. They are exceptions - like Ayling of course but there are not too many. Forshaw had got out of favour before Pulis arrived. The new manager has done his assessment and agreed with his predecessor and has got rid. One would assume that if we were to play against Middlesborough or teams with equally good midfields Forshaw wouldn't be as good as his opposite number. I believe Pulis is a better judge than Orta or Christianson. As always I hope I and Pulis are proved wrong.

Hesslian

1.) 18 Jan 2018 11:59:38
Sanchez was out of favour at his time at Barcelona, was used very little by Pep and sold on to Arsenal. He came to England and has looked world class, even Pep wanted to resign him. Forshaw seems like he has a lot to prove, can we at least give him that chance. We have for the last few seasons taken chances on complete unknowns from various leagues with the majority being poor or out of their depth in this league. At least Forshaw has experienced this and a higher league with some success.

{Ed001's Note - Sanchez wasn't so much out of favour as he was disliked by Messi. That was why he was out of the team and sold.}


2.) 18 Jan 2018 12:17:27
If that were true Hesslian we would not have signed Wood as he was a Leicester cast off. Didn't do too bad out of that deal. Sometimes it does not work for a player at one club but can be a good player at another club.


3.) 18 Jan 2018 15:55:31
As I said it's a 'doubt' it can happen and players can turn it around. Wood wasn't that great when he arrived and aspects of his play remained poor -goals scored obviously improved a lot. He has had one very good season that might be just about it. With reference to the likes of Sanchez et al that's a completely different situation. It's about money and style of play. There is no doubt that they have quality. At our level some of the players just lose it for whatever reason. The secret appears to be identifying those players that can make it back and do a good job. The others just look poor and we've had lots of them.

Not good enough for Middlesborough. Enough said. He is probably another one who has had his best days,

Hesslian

1.) 17 Jan 2018 20:23:18
Boro just got a new manager who prob is trying different things with the players snake bought. And Forshaw had an injury earlier in season too. Hadn’t played in about 5 weeks but is fit and ready to play again. A good solid experience midfielder in this league was what we needed so let’s wrlcime him as in my opinion it’s not a bad signing. MOT . just a good goal scoring experienced striker that will get 20 goals by end off season. Should do the trick. ⚽️⚽️⚽️👍😃


2.) 17 Jan 2018 20:49:53
Had his days at 26 yrs old ? That's me screwed then


3.) 17 Jan 2018 21:36:24
I'd be crap at boro as well Some players grow when they wear white My lad likes them scouse folk. His reaction when they signed the Ox wasn't repeatable I said at the time, maybe he needs a manager that believes in him, maybe Klopp sees something in the Ox. Currently my lads favourite player Now. Maybe TC can get this lad back to his previous form If so £2m is a good punt


4.) 17 Jan 2018 23:21:09
I think Forshaw will turn out good for us for sure! 😂


5.) 18 Jan 2018 00:17:15
We will see!


6.) 18 Jan 2018 02:50:31
You know how Pulis plays his teams. Unless he's a 'break yer legs' sit on defence player - he won't make the grade. Forshaw can pass the ball -no good for Pulis, could be good for us.


7.) 18 Jan 2018 03:11:22
Gave you a thumb up george!


8.) 18 Jan 2018 06:44:20
We needed cover in midfield now we have it - nuff said - can't argue with that.


9.) 18 Jan 2018 10:13:54
I see what you did there George, very good.


 

 

17 Jan 2018 13:51:27
I am not too fussed about us not going for Martin from Derby. He is supposed to 'guarantee' goals at championship level. If that is the case why are Derby so keen to off load him to a rival. If he's not good enough for Derby he shouldn't be good enough for us. Going for British players is fine but its a worry when we are linked with championship cast offs. I thought Ullua might be a better bet however even if we could afford him his goal record over the past few seasons isn't great. The Preston lad is the obvious choice at the moment but I can't see him coming either. A cast off mid fielder from Middlesborough isn't inspiring either.

Hesslian

1.) 17 Jan 2018 14:12:59
Ulloa has not played much in the Premier League to be fair. Good Championship striker.


2.) 17 Jan 2018 16:14:34
personally if i was manager i'd get ulloa, did well in prem at first, apprently nigel pearson spoke to his team when they went up and said who do we sign up front they all said ulloa, perfect for this level and exactly what we need


3.) 17 Jan 2018 17:44:31
It looks like Aston Villa have got Ulloa on loan! To slow again, we only get interested in players when it’s to late!


 

 

13 Jan 2018 18:04:16
As predicted - a loss. If it isn't lack of creativity or quality in front of goal it's lack of discipline. We have too many shortcomings. I think we were shading it in the first half then lost O'Kane. We were again shading it in the second but missed the chances we they came. You know that with this team they will concede in situations like this. We did at Newport and we have done it again. Ipswich were not good and were come off the back of three straight defeats. Playing like this we are in for a torrid couple of months. Mid table at best unless we bring in some quality. Losogga, Sacko need to go. Grot out on loan. So no Saiz, no Aling, no O'Kane. Vierrra just recovering as is Dallas. Chisbikki (can't spell it) out I think for a bit. We have just about eleven starters - no back up. Substitutions will not provide any game changers although I think some of TC's ideas in this respect are bizarre anyway.

Hesslian

1.) 13 Jan 2018 18:33:57
Good post Hess. Can't really disagree. May even add a couple of names to your "out" list


 

 

13 Jan 2018 14:42:44
Not expecting much from this game. If we get a draw that would be good but I am expecting worse. Much worse. I hope I'm wrong.

Brighton had three shots on target but were inches away from a couple of tap ins. Unfortunately for Cooper he is one of those players who repeatedly give chances to the opposition. I've seen him play in most of his games for Leeds. He can be playing a blinder but will then chip in with a couple of chances for the opposition.

If they don’t score from them he is man of the match unfortunately they frequently do. Other players do make mistakes, of course they do, but they don’t usually happen as often as Cooper’s and they are not usually as goal threatening. I'm sure he is a good chap but if we have any thoughts of playing well at a higher level we need better than him.

MC eventually got it right. He got rid of a lot of the waste, gradually put the ship on the right course and endured the abuse. Without the owner we wouldn't have had Monk. Credit where credit is due. It's not just Monk. Without Cellino we would have been up a creek without a paddle.

Because I don't think he will be much better than Beradi. He is a very good defender but doesn't give us enough going forward. DE Bok appears to be the same. League table does not show everything. Apart from the 5 above us Fulham, Middlesborough, Sheffield Utd and maybe even Brentford could do better than us. Not forgetting Ipswich. The way we are playing we could struggle against any on of those teams.

Lasogga is injured I think. I should have had Hernandez on the bench. An over sight. Playing Saiz and Hernandez together from the start. against better class opposition is too much of a risk.
