Part of the problem up front is the balance between work rate and quality. Players are working flat out to play Bielsa's style, this in turn takes away from their quality levels. Being the split second ahead of the opposition to convert possession into goals is not there because they have not got the quality to go with the work rate. Top players are the ones that make this look easy. Top players have the time alongside the work rate. How many times in final third does the pass go astray or the cross gets blocked. This is the area that needs improving and is the missing piece in the jigsaw. Can Bielsa coach them to this level, or do we need to invest.

Invest surely we can see the league is there for the taking yet again. It's time to throw the dice.

20 Oct 2019 16:08:56
Maybe your right Wex but who do we get in January?
It’s not easy getting in players ready to play instantly and in what positions are you looking to improve.

20 Oct 2019 17:17:09
Are you being serious Cork?
We have a striker who can't score, i cannot believe the refusal of countless fans that just pawn this off with, ah he holds the line well!
You speak of january, yet we had the leagues top scorer Vydra in the office start of last season, only to be told jog on you are too expensive . Then we had Angus tell us start of this season, we were the finished article and we didn't need strengthening meanwhile paddy still can't score.

20 Oct 2019 17:17:56
Corky we need goals we create chance after chance we need to convert.

20 Oct 2019 17:33:36
That's the thing a manager or coach can only get players up to a certain level. If they have not got the quality you have to invest to bring it in. That is why my only problem has been the lack of investment in the last two windows. Two players in January for me, a creator and a striker. Two top loans for 4 to 5 months. Both a Mitrovic and a Saiz type.

20 Oct 2019 17:29:36
Spot on Wex and will Radz ever learn on this? . player recruitment is needed in quality proven players who can score and create goals. abd we miss Roofe and Saiz badly.

20 Oct 2019 18:18:59
Do we go back to the old chestnut that is Dwight Gayle, who is allegedly on £40,000/ w

Jan 1st 2020 to May 2nd 2020.4 months.18 weeks

18 x 40,000 = £720,000

Loan Dwight Gayle for the 2nd half of the season, invest less than £1m and be guaranteed league winning goal return.

20 Oct 2019 18:31:43
Ok I’ll ask again. Who do you suggest we bring in?
And in what positions?

20 Oct 2019 18:37:24
And Gayle is guaranteed to score a bucket load?
You guys get on my tits. You know everything about nothing! . Ok we are missing chances but it’s not always the striker at fault. Second in the league and you still bitch and moan. Who else but fickle Leeds fans on here would do that.

20 Oct 2019 18:42:54
No guarantee Bielsa would play Gayle.

20 Oct 2019 18:52:25
Cork Says you who argued vociferously against me when I posted Mitrovic would finish the season with 30 league goals. A fit Gayle would be a fine addition.

20 Oct 2019 19:11:58
Make cork right to an extent

To counter cork who else but Leeds fans have seen a record lead be thrown away? Twice?

But it ain’t the strikers fault

Belisa is know for making teams poor at scoring

He has done this at every club and national team he has been at if he can destroy Sanchez and Argentina’s best can we be shocked he has done it to Bamford? Look at his record it is a plague that follows him.

{Ed047's Note - best we get Eddie back to Arsenal sharpish then mate

20 Oct 2019 20:42:22
Corky we pay orta a fortune to do just that.

20 Oct 2019 20:53:32

I am really sorry I am getting on your t! its. That wasnt my intention at all. I was just suggesting a player who may be able to offer us somethings that we don't have. At this moment its goals but he also offers a winners mentality, experience which will help our youngster, and more competition in an area that we are weak on experience.

I have never called for Bamfords head, I think you just want to read in to posts what you think they are saying. I believe he is a good addition to Leeds, but I am also intelligent enough to understand that no football club stands still. Transfers in and out happen in 2 windows a year. So my suggestion of a particular addition does not seem as stupid as your outburst at your Leeds brethren having ideas that he wants to discuss.

20 Oct 2019 21:15:46
we scored 73 goals last season. Roofe's scored 15 from 28 matches. and we miss him. we need better proven goalscoring players better than Bamford etc and a richer chairman. not a new manager.

20 Oct 2019 21:48:54
Agree Baz.

21 Oct 2019 09:41:51
And no fair play rules bazooka.

21 Oct 2019 10:50:48
Is say with nearly 30 million in player sales this summer Martyn we are well within ffp.

21 Oct 2019 13:03:36
eddie is pretty good at this level. i know bazooka your behind the manager but you have to admit strikers not scoring is a problem that has followed the manager all his career. maybe it ain't the strikers fault?
