Playing a 4-2-3-1 system with everyone fit and in form, what does everyone think would be our best front 4 from, Saiz . Alioski, Hernandez, Roofe, Bamford, Roberts and Brown ( Have left Harrison and Dallas out as I don't think they would be in contention) Its difficult to know who to pick. Saiz, Hernandez, Brown and Bamford, would be my pick with Roofe Roberts and Alioski as the options from the bench . Dallas, Harrison, Shacks, Clarke and Edmundson not even in match day squad?


1.) 09 Oct 2018 18:46:38
I would give Harrison a go on the left instead of Alioski as I think he delivers a better cross but is very left footed and therefore ineffective on the right.

2.) 09 Oct 2018 20:34:08
Good shout Notts although I thought Alioski was very good last twenty minutes at weekend. He really drove us on.
But I agree Harrison looks like he could really wip some balls in from the left as opposed to cutting back on his left from the opposite side.

i know i will get slated for this but i think alosiki is un-droppable. his effort and tracking back would be missed and his returns from goals and assists is as good as anyone else at the club. Harrison offers far less to the team.

4.) 10 Oct 2018 11:20:08
Wow! I totally agree Bermo. For me, Alioski is one of the first names on the team sheet: effort, drive and passion, which is pretty much the base requirement of any Leeds player imo.

5.) 10 Oct 2018 19:25:40
also and I know this is a silly argument. he is one of our top players in fantasy football, I know that is not all football is about but shows in returns if nothing else he is one of our top players.

None of us know in any way how this season will pan out, ultimately they are 3 possible scenarios, top 2, playoffs or also rans. The most important things is we are building. Rads has been in charge not much more than a year, resulting in the club being in much better shape. We have cleared out all the dead wood and the current manager and coaches have the team and the under performing players playing much better. A few astute signings in Jan and again ( if needed! ) in the summer window and we have to be there or there about.

With Biesla now not having to spend his time watching Leeds United videos does anyone else here believe he may be turning his attention to watching videos of Championship/ Lower Premiership standard players with view to additions to the squad in January?

To me he comes across as a thoughtful and methodical individual. Hence the reason he didn't want to recruit in the summer. At that time he would have had no idea of the exact demands of this league and what individuals may dovetail. Now, with a bit of experience, he could be assessing our weaknesses and other players strengths

Would love to see Leeds go all out to hunt down a specific individual and splash the cash.
(I will always believe Bamford was bought because he played in a certain area of the pitch, was not overly wanted by his club, and was a reasonable price)
I can't remember us chasing after a target in many a year (Rio Ferdinand? ) . Most of our buys are just available individuals.

I don’t think the guy has much time off

He’ll be watching game after game

Anything victor sends him

Guy is a total pro

Believe in Bielsa.

3.) 06 Oct 2018 01:32:04
He def doesn’t seem to leave anything to chance.
Very smart man and so far is doing well.
I am impressed in general with how the team is playing and am hoping that the players keep learning his ways and improving.
I think he has the managerial ability to win the league, just not sure he has quite enough quality players.
But although they are frustrating to watch at times the defence is solid and they do give you the impression that at any given moment they can score.
They excite me with the way they play which is more than Christ or monks teams ever did.

I know following leeds is a religion Aus but who next a pope or a nun.



03 Oct 2018 15:36:27
While we did not blow Hull away last night, the way we played made them look very very ordinary. This is what Adkins is referring to, when he talks about our performance, this the perspective of the opposition manager. The way Biesla sets his team up and the way they play make it very difficult for the opposition to get any momentum, Hull were at home and posed very little threat to us, if any. Ok at 1-0 we may have got caught by a late sucker punch but on the whole we controlled the game.


1.) 03 Oct 2018 19:03:22
Agree leeds, we didn’t create much last night, and although we looked a tad tired in the last 20,apart from one 6 yard scramble (in the whole game) they never ever looked like scoring.



03 Oct 2018 07:53:25
Good teams know how to do enough . A couple of years ago we would have lost that game, how many away Tuesday night games did we go without a win. Would sooner win 1 - nil with a minimum of effort than to knacker ourselves out with a steamrollering, you still only get 3 points.


1.) 03 Oct 2018 08:41:37
I agree, the main thing in our favour is with 4 key players out we continue to make lots of chances. I would worry if that goal last night was our only effort. When we are back to full strength we will convert more of the chances we are creating. At the other end we are keeping regular clean sheets, let's be optimistic. I really think one game it will all click and someone will get spanked. Agree that we are not a shoe in for promotion and it is a long season, boro and brom will be thereabouts but I believe we will too, play offs at least, automatic would be nice but a tough ask. Think if we keep Bielsa and miss out this season we will be nailed on for the next.
Onwards and upwards, keep the faith MOT.

2.) 03 Oct 2018 09:15:21
you know what 1970 that is very true and makes me feel a bit more positive.

very true this knows how to scrape more than most recent leeds teams and gets better results than last years team.

3.) 03 Oct 2018 11:02:27
Very true Ox. All we are missing is the final finish. One day it will all click and, yes, someone will suffer. Maybe, as is suggested, when Roofe comes back and plays on the wing?



30 Sep 2018 09:57:30
Lots of talk about burnout, fatigue, don't know if this will be the big problem. Think for us its more to do with relying too much on certain key individuals who would then loose form. Problem last 2 games with 2 first choice strikers out we had nobody to put the ball in the net, along with Roberts just needing that little bit of game time.


1.) 01 Oct 2018 14:12:12
We need to get some of the injured lads back and Forshaw as well, then we can rotate a bit and will be fine.

2.) 01 Oct 2018 19:06:48
Roofe, Pablo, Berardi and Shauny back after the international break.

Great feet but needed them to make up for a lack of pace, always had the impression he struggled with fitness levels.

Cork we are work in progress, now we have the right manager, with the funds you mention, given next season's budget as well we should be well placed over the next few transfer windows to have a strong enough team and squad. Think currently we still a few short.

Samo that's about the best of what we have at the moment. Overall still think we are a few short, 3 down the spine and a couple of wingers to get in behind with pace, we are edging ever closer!
