Had to be beaten at some stage, just hope it not a repeat of last season, top after 9 games then wheels came off.
Against Preston our midfield were amazing, Klich, saiz and Harrison all looked unplayable and Kp did his job well. Today a different story, maybe down to brum or maybe tiredness?

Even though alioski scored, he not up to the task, how many times offside, works hard but rarely an end product.
I know that MB is a fantastic coach and has done great, this is the same players from last season (except Doug) , but like most of us have said, squad too small and now with our injuries, could hurt us.

I think we will get back to winning on Friday and need to try stay in top 3 or 4 till January and then still think we need to invest.

Welcome from honkers.
So pleased to touch down and get wifi and see the result. Happy for Roberts. Happy for Bielsa and team.
What we are proving is that we are very very hard to score against regardless who our back 4 is and that is so important. We defend with our lives this year. It's not always good to watch and we look desperate at times but this season so far it is working.
Birsla brilliance seems to have convinced team to do exactly as he says and believe in him. And it's working.

Great start to the season and from what I've seen we can win ugly too and not lose games we should have got something out.
We will eventually lose but I don't think we will lose many simply cause the genius has a whole club and it's fans believing in him.
Long live the king.

Enjoy Hong Kong Aus, if you are still there on sat should be able to watch the Birmingham game.

You are right about the attitude to defending, hearts in mouth sometimes but our fluidity in attack always gives us a chance of scoring.

It’s just such a wonderful feeling to be around something so positive and exciting. Next stop, a bursting at the seams full house against Birmingham!

Apparently Leeds has a scout at a Barcelona U19 game against Celta I believe. Some first team Celta players involved.

It was Barcelona v PSV U19s and a couple of other games, VO likes his young guns.

Well done Tyler Roberts. Most people were saying "all the lad needs is a goal" Well he's now got two so the big test of the player is now the weekend. Hope he can pop up with another one (at least) then MB has one hell of a decision when Roofe is fit. It's a good problem to have.

genuinely rather keep the boy tyler in than bring back roofe, saying that seeing Roberts score will push him, and Roberts could even replace alioski on the wing. Harrison will be very hard to dislodge from this team now.

Nessy on the injured list as well now. We won’t have anybody left come November.

Alf, he is one of the players struggling to make a mark at the moment. He was rusty in the cup against Preston and they tried him in the under 23s in midfield and he had a bit of a shocker before going off with the injury. With the CB options Bielsa sees for the first team, he’s going to struggle to make the bench and with the options for the under 23s can’t see him in there either. The injury has come at a bad time for him. Hope he recovers quickly from the injury and gets back into the fray.

I watched it live in Melbourne, draw a fair result with injuries and great to still be unbeaten, made better with boro and derby losing.
They were physical and just pumped ball into box, every throw in went long into box too, defense dealt with most of them.
Looked like Phillips playing very deep, 3 CB's, only looked vulnerable in last 3 mins, they went for it and hit post.

As for Roberts, he made some decent runs in behind and had 3-5 chances but like Ekuban, never made great confident contact, but least he got them and a goal will be a help for him.

Alioski was rubbish, no final ball, caught off side constantly, should have gone all out for Foden ( he unused sub again) ?
Missed Hernandez today but Harrison getting better. Surprised Edmundson didn't get a run when Roberts off and maybe not the right game for young Clarke, get him in for alioski against Preston.

Seems very fair and accurate summary Shadwell, thanks. I’d like to see Roberts getting another crack against Preston and hope he can get a goal so his confidence rises.

I seem to remember Alioski having bad games after the international breaks last year, he’s definately not consistent.

Not sure if he will start with Clarke bu a great Elland Road crowd must be a good place to give Clarke and Edmondson some minutes this week.

Trust Bielsa to know the right moment for Clarke 😉.

We bought Roberts for a reason, this is his big chance in his position, so has to start. He has pace and looks strong which we'll need against the wall. Now he has had a few run outs, let's hope he can play well and get us a goal.
Edmondson on bench as back up and would also have Clarke there too. Will Forshaw make the subs, not match fit but an option late on?
Think jansson in is a good thing and can see him and cooper being our main 2 Cb's.
Going for 0-1 and Roberts to score and then all discussing how good he looks?

Not an ideal situation with players out but a chance for a few to shine.
I think Harrison is showing signs of being a key player for us.
Will need 11 players on the pitch against the wall and all of them to do their role well.
Suspect a draw but hope for a win.
Speed can undo them.

Worth noting that this is not the same Milwall we came unstuck against last year. We have the second best goals against in the comp and Milwall are leaking like a sieve. Even without our frontrunners I think I believe can take this.

Kiwis we had trouble finding that sieve.

It did seem somewhat clogged Whiteman. Glad for the point in the end. I feel it wouldn't have been forthcoming last year.

Kiwileeds agreed mate let’s hope they find it next time round.

Patrick Bamford injured with cruciate knee ligament out for 4 months. Won't play again until early next year. Chance for Roberts and Clarke in my opinion.

11 Sep 2018 13:35:58
all of our most expensive players seem to go out injured for months. is this some sort of conspiracy?

Agree2 0Disagree

11 Sep 2018 14:19:32
Although it's tough on the lad, unless Roofe hits some horrible form I don't think we'll miss him. Also maybe a chance for Roberts and/ or Clarke to step up.

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Sep 2018 14:37:03
True about Roberts and Clarke, maybe edmondson too, but do feel for Bamford.

How about Dallas for the centre forward role. He seems to be ear marked for every other position

He could our version of Cesc Fabregas, a false number 9.

Agree1 0Disagree

Shame but hopefully back for Jan when the bad weather might be taking its toll on Roofe. Think Edmondson and Clarke can do a few shifts as well. Roberts still to convince me but sure he has something to offer. Typical though get a new job, get your feet under the table then have a couple of months on sick lol.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Sep 2018 11:20:03
Dallas leading the line, I mean he runs like a dog after a ball, he's not got a bad shot, but he'd get sucked into the midfield battle too much. no promotion winning team uses last seasons reserve RB/ LB as a striker. Roberts now next in line for me, alioski is even a better hout, izzy brown has also played there.

Shaunessy got a full game for the Irish under 21s yesterday which is good news. Against Preston definitely looked rusty. Looks like he played at the back as well.

Liam Kitching and Paudi also had good games again out on loan. Paudi scored and Harrogate are top of their leaue with Kitching playing every game and two goals for him so far. Know its lower leagues but still experience.
