Harsh on Forshaw I would say and I still think there is a player in firpo lorente and Koch. But regardless need another LB and RB (the Dane hopefully) to give competition for firpo ayling and drameh. CB I am happy with (as well as the above have struik cresswell and coops - the latter I have never been a big fan of but was excellent when he came back at the end of the season) . Another CM (attacking or box to box) a quality striker (to go with Bam and joffy) and I am happy (plus senior pro goalie to work with sun in for mealier) .

Koch is a valuable player for us. Llorente I thought was class and maybe can be with a run of games. Firpo from what I’ve seen so far offers little but then again if he stays injury free who knows. A new manager a new dawn once more?

Difficult to judge the defenders when they were constrained by a hideous man marking system which dragged everybody out of position for the first two thirds of the season and protected by a powder puff midfield stuffed with wingers and forwards (or out of position defenders) . Still believe Llorente and Koch good enough and that there is a player in firpo.

Charlie Taylor to solve left back woes anyone?

Thought the same, but won’t happen if they stay up and we go down.

Sorry didn't he refuse to play in the last couple of games a few years ago so that he could get traded to Burnley along with Peacock and that other chap that scored 40 goals for us . Should never be welcomed back.

Quite right CA, I was a disgrace the way he forced himself out of our club, couldn’t get out quick enough.
He’s a half decent LB but I wouldn’t want him anywhere near our club again with that stinking attitude.
He plays if you can call it football, for the most boring club in Premiership history.
Can’t be entertaining to be a Burnley fan surely, even if you are in the Prem, for time being!

Just seen the Josh Warrington cartwheel and forward roll at the end of his fight in homage to Bill Ayling. Epic!

Well my kids certainly enjoyed their first trip to Elland Road! Should have been at least 3-0 up by half time. Much better overall but two questions / complaints from me. 1 we play so much better with a focal point in attack, so when Bamford comes off Joffy has to come on - playing 3 wingers none of whom can act as that focal point is complete folly - that is the reason we were under pressure second half - absolutely nothing stuck up front the ball just kept coming back to us. 2 Mars h apparently had told Harrison that under almost any scenario he would be the first sub on the pitch. What a nonsense - unless he was coming on for another winger this was obviously going to require at least one square peg in a round hole again. See what the team needs and make the right change to affect the game, don’t think “Harrison is the best player I have on the bench so I will bring him on first” - that is just lazy thinking.

Price you pay for previous manager's obsession with wingers.

Think you need to look at the positions that need strengthening rather than looking at who you like that is available. To me we are well stacked with central defenders and wingers so I would not consider anybody in these positions. Need to buy where we are weak Striker, CM, LB, RB in that order for me.

100% not nailed it for me Alf, but that’s called opinions. Can’t really conclude on whether March was the right answer but I am 100% convinced sticking with Bielsa was the wrong answer. He was wonderful in his time but anybody who watched Leeds in that last 5 or 6 games could see the play was shot to pieces. Watching Tottenham destroy the man for man marking by pulling defenders out of position and then rolling through the holes was the final straw for me. Love Marcelo, legend for what he did, but no doubt in my mind we would be relegated with him in charge. Whether March (or anybody with this st of players) would fare any better I am not sure but I don’t think we should idolise Bielsa when he fared appallingly throughout the season - playing three wingers, no centre forward ayling at centre back where’s Dramah when you need him etc etc.

Believe it was offside Aus hence they went to the penalty.
