On the comments regarding players we need below and not sure if some of the u23's will fill the gaps. I would be reasonable happy with the current defence including Dallas and Alioski as full backs. A new player to add to the midfield to replace Izzy. Try and get James and Wilson as wingers alongside Harrison and Clarke . A new striker and No. 10 to go with Bamford, Roofe, Roberts and Hernandez. And not to forget Baby Shacks who could be the new star dynamo. On a different point, it has occurred to me that MB will have been on a learning curve and now I believe he has gotten to grips with what is actually required in this league. Think this has become more obvious over recent performances. He knows what he is up against every week and it is the second round of fixtures having already played each of the teams already once this season. Now Fat Frank's damage has been sorted and the uncertainty put to bed we seem to be back on an even keel.

Sorry '70 have to disagree with the very first bit. I could name half a dozen who could certainly, this year or next, do a job for us in the first team. In fact for next year with the first team squad, the U23s and the returning loanees we have an embarrasment of riches.

Sorry my comment did not read right it was more to say I did not know which of the u23's would make it. As I also believe quite a number of them will be pushing for regular places in the first team over the next season or two. Also if we keep working on this conveyer belt for the foreseeable future, we can only get stronger and stronger. The club have also started a sports education facility, I believe, it looks like we are following a blueprint similar to the Barcelona model for developing talent, which is then supplemented by purchasing quality to fill in any gaps. This is all excellent work, which a lot of the time goes un noticed. Alongside this is the brand of football we play, which is a more modern version and has been adapted worldwide and used by the majority of top teams. It is all a far far cry from where we have been over the last number of years and the owners and ridicule we have had to endure . On reflection ( and I know we all have a moan now and again) every day we are getting stronger and these foundations should stand is in good stead for the years to come. So while I feel like this, I am going to say thank you to the Leeds Trinity of Bielsa, Orta and most importantly Rads ( Corberan also gets a mention)

For me it depends a lot on which league we are in! I’m sure we’re developing two plans and two lists of players at the moment. If we remain in the championship we have a lot of under 23 players and some loaners who could be in the shakeup during the summer. If we are Premiership bound, I think it is more complicated. Three groups, who is definitely premiership quality, and who could make it and who won’t.

If the gap between our Under 23 league and the championship is wide, imagine that between the under 23s and the premiership!

I’m sure somone in the Bielsa team will be watching all the premiership matches and starting the same kind of analysis that they would have done on the championship.

Question Spanish what’s happened to young lad Nicell?
He played or was on the bench once or twice last season but haven’t heard anything of him including the u23s since. You’re the man to ask.

Nicell not getting much game time Corky now Diaz has moved into midfield. With Mcalmont improving and Bogus strutting his stuff now will be hard for him to claim his place back. Good player but behind a few talented lads at the moment.

Nicell not getting a lot of playing time with Diaz moved into midfield, Mcalmont improving and now Bogus strutting his stuff. Think he will struggle to be first choice unless a couple move up to first team squad. He is a good player but there are a few now that are better and improving. Hope that helps Corky.
