I think the players burnt themselves out a bit against Arsenal, the tempo that we played was quite extraordinary, Bamford looked knackered at the end of the match, plus Ayling and Dallas took knocks. It might explain our dismal turnout against the Wendies.
I’m hoping there’ll be a big response against QPR.

Agreed, wish we had played against a L2 team rather than Arsenal and we had rested the entire first team and played the U23s.

I’m of the belief that our stagnation in goals is not the cause of our strikers but of their supply, stats are starting to show that Bamford and Nketiah on his brief play have not touched/ received the ball enough. Costa is not in his element yet and Harrison does have a tendency to blow hot and cold.
Big dilemma for Bielsa?, I don’t think so, but I hope he finds a solution soon. Missing Pablo.

Totally agree. Too many 50:50 chances, not enough clear cut ones.


2.) 21 Oct 2019 18:06:20
was the same last season - the stats don't tell the whole story. 20 half chances a game are not as good as 2 clear cut ones. Bamford still hopeless, however.

Days of losing to our so called bogey teams and ex players coming back to haunt us are over.
This Leeds United team is the best I’ve seen for a long time, and I don’t think they are in 2nd gear yet.

Let's hope that these words don't come back to haunt us. Seems we are struggling with the typical injuries 4 games in. The fact that we never brought another centre half still worries me. Brentford never an easy team to play so expect a tough game.


2.) 21 Aug 2019 21:05:13
Please Marcelo don't leave the subs till 13 minutes from time,


3.) 22 Aug 2019 11:09:39
Yeah its a bit early to declare we have that monkey of our back - that's probably the optimistic side of you speaking!


4.) 24 Aug 2019 15:33:51
How is Stuart Dallas playing over shackleton! WAY TOO SLOW. A good squad player. that's IT! Bamford hasn't touched the ball in 30 Mins!


5.) 24 Aug 2019 15:36:56
You know He is Going to score now!


6.) 24 Aug 2019 15:45:13
Stuart Dallas my FORKING HERO! YOU BEAUTY!


7.) 26 Aug 2019 21:23:21
Ha Ha ha ha hooksie Classic mate! 😎.

Is this the upturn in Pablo’s season? I sincerely hope so. I think he would admit it’s not been his best season for us but if we now get the Pablo Hernandez we all know and love for the remaining games he will be the man who will guide us to glory.

OptimisticalPessimist

1.) 23 Feb 2020 19:14:16
I sincerely hope so OP. The man has been quiet by his normal standards but I believe he is the best player in the division and will show so in the final stretch. 🤞.


2.) 23 Feb 2020 20:45:12
He's been injured or returning from injury for most of it. Give the guy a break.

Didn’t want to mention the missed chances yesterday, just wanted to focus on the victory.
It is almost inconceivable that we didn’t score 4 or 5 more in that game. It does have a pattern though, goalkeepers pulling off worldy saves when playing us and not to mention the times we hit the woodwork, I reckon that we hit the post or bar once or twice in nearly every game, it is freakish. My point is that I don’t want to blame the players too much although I do believe in making your own luck.
You have to admit, it does happen with a bizarre regularity.

Those two saves, and possibly others were incredible. The one when Costa rounded him, I can’t get my head around! How did he get back so quickly?


2.) 16 Feb 2020 10:29:04
well some teams have a good keeper.


3.) 16 Feb 2020 15:25:59
this is my point. it don't matter how many you miss if you keep a clean sheet. score just one and keep a clean sheet get three points. keep getting three points and you get promoted.


4.) 16 Feb 2020 21:30:36
Or ones that just have blinders against us.

Kalvin Phillips just sensational, what a player.
Great victory, loved it.

Totally OP. Very dominant, playing some sublime football again. Great to watch!


2.) 15 Feb 2020 17:53:33
Here here boys, kalvo, s sending off has given him a right rocket up his arse . Results all went with us thanks bento the man above.


3.) 15 Feb 2020 18:46:50
Philips top man to day, work rate was excellent.

From what I can read into our current situation is that we probably have peaked too early. Going 11 points clear in the league by Xmas is I imagine mentally difficult to sustain or even build upon. Same for West Brom also but they seem to be gaining their second wind now.
I truly believe that we will go on a run of victories now which will define our season with auto promotion. I just think there’ll be more agression and focus in our play from now on.
I know a lot of you will say well where are the goals coming from and what about Kiko?
I think you ultimately create your own luck, the players create plenty of chances to score goals and that will happen, trust me.
Kiko is a different story, it’s really tough being a goalie, one little error can cost 3pts and he has done that on more than one or two occasions. But let’s not forget he did go through an outstanding period before Xmas. It maybe that this situation could be forced anyhow by the disciplinary action which looks like it’s going to happen very soon. Either way it needs to be resolved. !
I’m really confident about us marching on now, there will be some slip ups but the other contending teams will as well.
Bielsa confuses me sometimes stating that we played better against Forest than we did against Brentford?, but what I saw against Brentford was more hunger and controlled determination.
The goals will come.

We all hope so OP. COME ON LEEDS!

it's absolutely essential we get promoted this season . we all know the unfavourable consequences otherwise.


2.) 13 Feb 2020 13:26:01
Bazooka, i do believe this Leeds Utd team is more than capable of winning promotion, but you are right that the consequences of failure don’t bare thinking about, so let’s not. Leeds will win promotion this season on merit and a never say die attitude.
I have no doubt that it’ll be very tight come end of season and we’ll all have sweaty hands, continual clenching of the bum cheeks and drinking far more than we should.
I can’t allow myself to think that it will be anything less than a champagne supernova celebration in the end. 🥂
Can’t wait for Saturday 3pm.


3.) 13 Feb 2020 13:27:40
Agree OP MOT.


4.) 13 Feb 2020 15:01:35
Agree Baz and OP. Promotion this season is vital, and I also still believe that we will do it.


 

 

11 Feb 2020 22:21:14
Definitely a much better performance tonight, a lot of dominance with the ball, quick and accurate passing and good to see them winning the ball back quicker.
A lot of people thought we were going to be bossed out of this game tonight because we are weak and lacking confidence, I think the team showed they really want this promotion.
Not going to mention Castilla, just hope MB knows what he’s doing.

I feel slightly uncomfortable with these so called footballing offense claims. If these issues arrived in a court of law I imagine most of the cases would be kicked out on lack of evidence. Bielsa gate was another ridiculous story blown out of all proportion by the media. It seems to be that the FA has its own kangaroo court led by a bunch of old coffin dodgers who make up it up as they go along.
For Castilla I feel him being guilty or not guilty will be banned with or without conclusive evidence, it’s just the way it is with the FA.

I wouldn’t get any satisfaction out of either Manure or Chelski winning, I dislike them both venomously. Both of their current managers will win zero. It’s laughable to hear premiership mangers whine like a 4 year old when VAR decisions go against their teams but are silent when it goes for them. VAR, love or hate it, it’s here to stay. Actually it suits the likes of Solskjær and Lampard because they can hide their inept coaching abilities behind VAR decisions.
