Time to tinker slightly with team, I would have Pablo on bench and try to rest him, play some part to keep sharp but maybe 20 mins. Don't think MB will but would like to see Izzy or bouguz in his place.
Would also drop Harrison and play either Clarke or Shackleton.
Be happy with draw against villa and then beat Ipswich, still need a point or 2 for 3rd.
Scary because other playoff teams in form but if we play at our top level can beat any of these, but can we do that over 3 games?

Roofe, Alioski, Douglas all out - Leif Davis confirmed he's had surgery and is done for the year on Instagram too, while Halme, Termunzhukov + Nicell are seemingly injured too (didn't feature in last 23s game, in Halme's case a while) .

With that in mind, I think Bielsa will pick:

Casilla; Ayling, Jansson, Cooper, Dallas; Forshaw, Klich; Hernandez, Roberts, Harruison; Bamford.
Res: BPF, Phillips, Berardi, Shackleton, Clarke, Gotts, Stevens.

Others who could feature Brown, Edmondson, Diaz, Bogusz, Struijk, Odour, Hosannah.

I would personally go full strength for this game and if we're going to rest anybody do it against Ipswich, however if we do need to rest somebody then Pablo, Ayling and Pontus the obvious ones.

Love to see Shack get a start on the right wing. MOT ALAW.

I dread the "same team again" statement but I think he is not a man for change. Personally I would like to see Odour for Harrison and, if necessary, Edmundson up front.

3.) 30 Apr 2019 20:21:49
We need to secure 3rd. No time for tinkering right now.

4.) 01 May 2019 11:12:40
Apparently efl brought a new rule in that teams have to play there first strong team. Was due to the dog botherers making 10 changes on the last game and affecting the relegation places. Not that it affects owt this year as the relegation places are already confirmed.

Give the under 23’s a run out again Ipswich.

Scary if rads has no funds, sold wood 18mil, vieira 7mil and didn't USA guys put in 10mil? So recent cash in over 35mil, not brought in too much, Douglas 3mil and Bamford 7?
Why not try get Dan James on loan from Man U, would be great for his development.
Then try for Forster as main GK.

He should have 25mill and 11 mill = 36mill where is it MR Radz, oh it’s in your hole in your pocket.

2.) 23 May 2019 16:13:21
Ok, here's a hole in your bucket, it costs over £10M just to keep the club running during the close season.

3.) 24 May 2019 13:23:55
Al 170 million would’ve help had he invested in the team.

Lufc need to sort out if bielsa staying or not and fast.
The summer off season will fly by and need to work on which players to stay/ go.
Personally really hope bielsa stays and builds a team of his, think it only requires between 4-6 players depending on who sold. For me it's-
1- new GK
2- one CB to partner Pontus and coops as sub, wing backs sorted and bring back Pearce/ coyle.
3- Defensive MF needed, if we can get 10-15mil for KP, I would sell.
4- winger
5- creative MF
6- striker.

1.) 20 May 2019 13:00:15
Personally I think we are OK in the GK department, I really like Kiko and I don't think he's made as many mistakes as BPF and Maizek look decent.
Definately need a CB and possibly a LB but I don't think Pearce or Coyle are good enough or they wouldn't have been loaned out.
Keep KP at all costs!
We have Shackleton, Clarke and Boguz coming through in midfield who are all good enough.
Striker who can bag 30 goals is a must!

2.) 20 May 2019 16:08:40
Personally don't think we are too bad for next season. With a couple of additions and upgrades from the loans/ u23s we can remuster and start again. Overall the GK situation is not as bad as the last game would show. I would not argue with a new GK but only if we spend big and buy QUALITY. As for CB/ DM/ winger, loans/ u23s should suffice but again, would not argue with a QUALITY buy. As for striker we have 4 on the books so hoping one, or more, come good. Jay, along with your emerging names I would add Odour, Kun, McCalmont and Stevens.



17 May 2019 06:32:47
I do hope bielsa stays, sure he needs reassurance from rads but he has started something special. I loved the season and feel very low after what has happened but we did play some amazing football.
He turned last seasons (mostly) players into better ones, even coops who I didn't rate had a good season abliet derby game.
I think with under 23's coming thru and a 3-4 additions, could be exciting times.
A few mistakes made as we all have stated but if can learn from it, can challenge next season.
For me, selling viera was wrong, letting saiz go and not replacing him and the Jan window investment poor.
Think Belisa a bit niave about the championship and really believe he should have used his friendship with pep and poch better? Think Foden and foyth would have been great loans.
Players and positions for me are GK, send back Kiko, go for Forster or etheridge
Defense- try keep Pontus and if can buy another CB, to partner him, if he goes 2 x CB's, Cooper as back up.
Douglas and ailing and hope Doug can get form/ confidence back he had with wolves.
Bring back Pearce and coyle for competition and sell alioski
MF- keep Phillips but invest in other holding MF, buy back veira.
Let forshaw, klich and Harrison go.
Invest in winger, creative MF and 2 quality forwards.
I would love to buy shelvey, he is a bit lazy but makes things happen and great passing ability. Also see if Milner serious about his love for Leeds, what a hero he could be.
Forwards- think Haaland and a vydra or gayle would be great.

Think if we had gone for a proven goalscorer like Maupay, Gayle Or Pukki we would be up now as champions. Made the chances just didn't bury them.

2.) 17 May 2019 10:09:29
Pukinwasnt a proven goal scorer look at his record before he came to budgies.

3.) 17 May 2019 10:41:44
Great point Martyn, it’s the ability to pick someone up relatively cheaply that can become a leading goal scorer at least for one year, Pukki and the resurrection of Sharpe once again for Sheffield who he plays that extra hard for. He wasn’t a goal scorer for us!



15 May 2019 22:54:35
Can't concede 4 goals at home, should have been over and letting them score before HT gave them a massive boost. Keeper thinks he's a defender, he is a liability and send him back.
Now time for post mortem, lack of Jan investment cost us automatic, should have bought heaton or darlow. Dan james should have been sorted early Jan, stupidity to leave to last day and quality forward needed bringing in, had to pay decent wage for 4 months.
Playoffs always a lottery and often teams in 6th do well, we lost our form.
I think we need to keep bielsa, give him cash to form his team, he did amazing with same players and quality manager, even if a bit stubborn.
I think a few players may leave (Pontus/ Phillips) and can't blame them. Pontus has tried and is a premiership player
, hope he stays and build team around him.
Players to let go, Casilla, beradi, Harrison, Izzy, Bamford and if rumors of over 13mil for roofe, sell him.
Positions needed, GK, CB, creative MF, holding MF, winger and 2 forwards. Maybe a couple of under 23's can step up. Like look of Shackleton, Clarke and hearing reports of their games, think we have possibilities with kun, borguez.
Also bring back to fold for pre season- Pearce, coyle, Wilks and could idgueci be worth a try.

ill be shocked if phillips leaves, i know few scouts i have spoken to really don't rate him (they actually laughed when i mentioned him to them) i don't think any teams will put hand in pocket for slowest player in the league. if they do we must bite there hands off

shacks, roofe, pontus maybe clark if fitness ain't a problem could go and all will be really missed.

2.) 16 May 2019 09:54:12
Bermo. Don’t know what scouts you’re talking to, but one of my best mates, and my former assistant manager was a scout for Leeds and therefore well in the loop, and all of the big clubs have been following him since he was about 9 yrs old. It also doesn’t take much to be a “scout”.

3.) 16 May 2019 10:32:07
the scout i was talking to was a lead scout for spurs. not a bad club.

4.) 16 May 2019 15:45:48
One club Bermo, one scout, one opinion. I’m talking about many clubs, and many scouts.

This is a test! Our form is terrible and now beaten twice by relegation teams with only 10 men, not great prep.
Hope if we do get to final it doesn't go to pens, no confidence from 12 yards.
I still believe we can raise our game and should play better against an attacking side, just not seeing goals in our team.
Here comes the criticism-
Cassila is a liability, not really improved us and makes rash decisions, should have got heaton.
No LB, Dallas did well to score but where was he for their 2nd, massive space. Looks like letting Pearce go on loan a mistake.
Dallas is terrible and shouldn't be in the squad, play beradi now.
Why he is playing two holding type MF against Ipswich, Forshaw needs to be sub and play KP holding.
Really need some extra creativity in midfield and hope Roberts back, still can't fathom why Izzy never given a go, what a waste of time, guess under 23's benefiting.
Now onto Harrison, useless, send him back, we have no left side of team, makes not getting james huge.
MB should have tried other options yesterday, does he really rate Harrison?
For me it's shacks or Clarke for him and Roberts for Forshaw.
Then finally on to roofe, another player not good enough, can't hold up a ball and should be getting behind defenders but doesn't make those runs either. We have had our best opportunity for promotion as have a fantastic coach but needed quality players brought in, firstly last summer and then in Jan, we all said it.
Before people say it, that if just bought players then bad for young ones, he not playing young ones, except Clarke occasionally for 15min.
Sorry for negativity but sooo frustrated and unsure with our form for last 10-15 games
why he not tried something else, same team picked every week and they not doing the business.

Agree with most of this . Other than Roofe who when sharp and fully match fit has proven he has what it takes .

As for GK, go for Forster or I do like look of Etheridge
from Cardiff, but he may get picked off by prem club.

Have to agree and have said myself many times that Harrison not good enough, he rarely creates anything and when he does get a chance, he rarely hits the target.
Our left side looks weak and missing Douglas and alioski at LB, don’t rate alioski on wing but did well at LB.
Also looking at Clarke since his incident, not the same form and sure he will come good again, but should be Shackleton as left winger.
Then replace forshaw with Roberts if he fit but MB seems to rate Harrison ( or is it in his contract) and always plays him and he loves forshaw.

I agree mett, didn’t invest enough. Yes Bamford for 7m but sold wood for 18m and vieira for 7m, in Jan we should have paid for a top class striker like lorrente, as new Bamford injury prone.
