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.

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.

Let's see who he plays on Tuesday, hope costa and Eddie start as it seems they not up to bielsa fitness yet. I thought costa was looking to run at their defense and when match fit, could be a big danger.
Would like to see costa in place of klich or Forshaw in the coming weeks, but I think forshaw has played the better in first 2 games.
I don't understand why alioski keeps getting his chance, don't rate him on wing, did well as LB last season but he creates nothing and prefer Clarke or shacks, to come on as sub.

Because it’s a team effort maybe.



09 Aug 2019 01:08:55
Very excited at Eddie prospect, seems highly rated and hope he can be our 20+ man.
Happy with our attacking options, hope bielsa plays Costa and not another Izzy. Harrison looks like he could improve, I didn't want him back but be happy to eat my words.
Think club did well in keeping KP, need that player in the middle, don't like when he drops into defense though, we get over run.
Where I am disappointed is defense, did need a CB and bielsa should have used his contact with poch and brought in Vickers, back 3 with coop and white.
It's a position that will pick up suspensions and injuries, needed cover and think will see that as season goes on, have to buy one in Jan or LOAN.
Also been greedy, feel we lack that saiz type creative MF, if Pablo off day unsure who does that.

Melbourne, I think Harrison has improved already and I’m sure after last season he understands the impact injuries and suspensions can have on the defence, he just believes that he already has enough of a solution, Cooper, white, Davis, Ayling, KP, Struijk.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 08:16:07
Similar thoughts to mine Melbourne. Have a feeling we will rue not getting defensive cover and we never replaced Saiz.

3.) 09 Aug 2019 08:24:32
Costa, Roberts or Klich can play No 10 role.

4.) 09 Aug 2019 09:06:42
Boguz too notts.

5.) 09 Aug 2019 12:05:35
And Pablo.



07 Aug 2019 11:09:36
Don't think roofe lived up to his potential, come with a great record at? Oxford, but not a striker for me.
Do need to spend the money though, I like idea of the arsenal lad over Kent. Think we have enough wingers and definitely need a goal scorer.
So looking like it will be 2 incomings, GK and?
We do seem to leave it late though.

Roofe did a job for us on the journey back

Wish him well.

2.) 07 Aug 2019 14:10:48
Woody agreed, he’s done more then some wish him all the very best, shame one or two didn’t go in his place.



05 Aug 2019 01:17:51
Great win and controlled game apart from 10 min towards end.
Ben White was fantastic, looks very composed and Cooper did well next to.
Douglas good going forward but out of position defensively at times and leaves gaps.
Pablo amazing and wish he was 30 and thought Harrison played well.
Glad bamford got his goal but lacks pace and would a Gayle type before Thursday.
Also mention to KP, got to keep him, very good and when he drops into back 3, it shows and look vulnerable.
Still feel cassila a liability.

Melbourne white

1.) 05 Aug 2019 08:35:44
Agree with all of the above, I mentioned Douglas got caught a couple times but was told that’s what bielsa wants him to do is get upfield, which I understand that but either way we were exposed down that side a couple times . Casilla worries me and I don’t think bamford chases the ball down as well as roofe . So I have concerns Against better teams.



03 Aug 2019 03:36:02
I would happily let roofe go if can get 7mil for him but have to invest. If Rumours true that are we in for gayle then be very happy.
With costa, Pablo, Bogusz and Harrison feeding him, he would score lots and that missing piece.
If roofe goes and no other incomings then a terrible window but hopefully a busy last 5 days.
Gayle, CB and GK, if got Gayle only my line up-
Beradi White Cooper
Shacks Klich Harrison
Pablo Costa

Here we go again, this time last year it was all vydra, now it's supposed to be Gayle. If and it is only an if we could get Gayle in, even on loan, then maybe we would have a bit of a chance. But that still leaves us lightweight at the back.

2.) 03 Aug 2019 07:26:46
Agreed Gayle would be a great acquisition but like Mezzer states we are still in need in the defense.

3.) 03 Aug 2019 08:20:01
Guess a plan is to score 4 and concede 3.

4.) 03 Aug 2019 10:29:06
Yeah but that plan is no
Good for my heart.

5.) 03 Aug 2019 10:44:16
Biesla is the new Kevin Keegan

Mind you even Wor Kev had Albert and Peacock as the centre backs.

All out attack would suit me down to the ground. I used to love watching them in that era. They were my second team.

I know, my brother took me to EL and my first game was against Man U, I was 8y/ o and then the players came out in there suits to walk around pitch, I just remember Gary bailey even though he was not leeds keeper.

If no other takers, I would love them. I am flying from Melbourne to Perth on Tuesday to have a short break with family and have ticket for myself for match.
But I would love to take my 9y/ o boy to his first leeds match.
