MB another humble suggestion . Please play Roofe at 9 in the last two games . Help him find his form and confidence for the play offs . He was a vital ingredient in our early season successes and a fit and firing Roofey gives us our best chance of winning the play offs . Time to bench BAM BAM ##.

Too true Leodis, the future and possible some clues for the immediate future! Interesting to see who plays today!

After the 1975 European Cup Final which we lost, we've been involved in 12 Semi Finals and Finals involving the League Cup, FA Cup, UEFA Cup, Champions League and Playoffs you guessed it we've lost them all so don't expect 2019 Playoffs to be any different the only success's were 2nd Division Champions, 1st Division Champions and a League 1 promotion we have a shocking record for failure this football club as it in it's DNA to fail. Sorry for being so pessimistic but sthe stats don't lie.

It’s all perspective kly, some would see that as very successful!

I know what your saying Spanish but what I'm getting at we constantly fail at the last hurdle we are a losing club rather than a winning club even during Don's reign we lost far more than we won at death.

MB if you are watching this please play a natural left footer at left back even if it's one of the under 23's ( Davis / Odour ) or even think about Harrison as he's of limited value further up the pitch anyway . In fact the more I think about it Harrison could be a revelation there and we could actually find a place for Shack .

Alioski out for a few weeks. Would you play Clarke on the left and put Pablo on the right or just slot Dallas on the left wing?

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 13:00:26
Personally I'd play pablo in a middle 3, 3 5 2, try roofe and bamford together, but MB won't change.

Leo All of your "options" fail to address the left back berth. You may have said our goalkeeper injured so should we play 2 up front? I'd replace Alioski with Davis. I'd also replace Harrison with Shack. Klich also needs dropping. I'd start with KP and Forshaw. Bench places for Bogusz and Edmondson in my team.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Apr 2019 13:14:43
Not a bad shout George . The problem is when Forshaw and KP have played together ( a couple of times earlier in season ) Forshaw has tried to play quarter back in KP’s position instead of playing further up the park . If he can actually stick to 8 this could be effective .

Agree0 0Disagree

Can't argue with that George. Our left hand side has been a "disappointment" lately. Certainly something radical required. The worrying thing is Bielsas mindset, his missguided loyalty and his stubborness. I have a feeling that he will stick with the basic 11 and just say "you got it wrong now go and fix it". Too late now, I know but maybe not the right time to blood the kids.

Tonight might be interesting bearing in mind the games ahead. Cup semi, full house and against a higher level opposition. Interesting to see who plays on the left. On the wing, don’t discount Jordan Stevens, he has had a solid season and has a good turn of pace. Got a bench bench place recently and given JC hasn’t returned at his best yet, might be worth a place in the squad. If there are to be any left field changes, in all senses, tonight might provide a few clues!

Leo This is when you play the kids, not all but some. Nothing to lose. What Bub got working isn't working. Possession stats remain high but conversion of chances worst I've ever known at the club. Change is needed. Youth only chance we have right now.

RHC You're right. Siamese twin syndrome. Hopefully, he will play further up like you said along with Tyler.

If you think about the 4 attacking players that blew teams away beginning of the season . Roofe injured and not back in team or played out of position, Saiz in Spain, Klich a pale shadow of former self . That leaves Pablo carrying the team on his back and now finally feeling the strain . This explains our current form and lack of cutting edge . Bamford, Roberts and Harrison have only stepped up intermittently. Clarke but for his virus may have helped . Answers on a postcard?

23 Apr 2019 14:52:08
Don't agree George There will be far less pressured games to introduce the kids especially when third is not even guaranteed.

Although I am an avid follower here, I don't post often as I have little knowledge of the technical side of football.

Like everyone, I would have preferred automatic promotion but, being a glass half full kind of guy (and seeing I am from the colonies and reliant on TV to see my team) , I see this as a bonus of seeing at least two more games and hopefully three this season.

Having said that, I don't give a toss how they do it, I just want them to win those three extra games and make me pay for a new Pay TV subscription to watch them play next year.

Get your subscription Jungle. Wherever we are next season will be just as interestin.

I would assume (and hope) that there are two recruitment lists for most of the names I have seen rely on our promotion. I would love to have most of them onboard but feel 3 or 4 hungry young guns either internal or external would allow us to regroup and go again with added vigour and quality.

Lets put all this into perspective lads. The reason we are all gutted and some are looking to blame this player or that one or lack of investment or Bubs stubborness is because we have had the best season in decades. We have been battling for automatic promotion for all season long and still are. If some one had said last summer we would have done that i would have give him one of my wry looks. The fact is we have done it and that's why it so disappointing to see automatic slipping away but if we had been in Villas position and come through at the death to clinch a play off place we would be over the moon. Nothing in life is easy especially if you are a Leeds fan.
Yes we needed a few more who could ease the burden on the lads who have given their all every game this season. Bielsaball is a hard demanding style and its a long season so let's be proud the lads got us to where we are. Agree that play offs are a bit of a lottery but why should we not win it. Think it will be us and Brom in final if it goes that way and we can beat them. Its never over till its over and i for one applaud Bubs and the team for an exciting and nerve wracking season. MOT.

Well said Bige. Lotteries are there to be won and there is no reason that it cannot be us.

Totally fed up but form since Xmas not been good enough, can't loose to the teams we did and expect to be champions.
Think we all feel crap because we were so close, did need players in Jan and didn't get them in but that is history now.
We need to finish 3rd as don't fancy villa or west brom, think we can beat derby or boro and then final is a one off.
If we get to final and play villa/ brom, they are very attacking but do concede as not best defensively and that will suit us.
Be great if was villa and got revenge over 1996 league cup final defeat ( I was at wembly) , they in form but would fancy our chances.
Let's try to stay positive as we are 3rd and having an extended season, think we may still go up.
Still need a couple of points to guarantee 3rd, so can't change whole team but would tinker and rest Pablo for next 2 games.
I personally would like to see Izzy get those games and see if he can impress, can't be worse than Roberts, can't hit the target and runs like he sh*t himself.
Also big call for Shackleton, has skill, energy and is direct, swap for Harrison. Stop playing Dallas please and lastly KP not forshaw.

We are supposed to have the best manager apart from The top two teams it would seem now it’s all down to him to pull this one out of the hat!, I think it’s going to be Leeds v villa in the end, no complaints about play off it’s is what it is, we shouldn’t have been in this spot in the first place,

Sorry Mel and Whitey, someone came out with the stat that form starting November puts us 9th! Just enjoying our (overall) marvellous season but as for play offs. As Saint Doris once said - What will be, will be.
