Couple of thoughts. Start of season we dominated teams but couldn’t score. Yesterday I thought we were second best for large chunks of the match but produced moments of sheer quality at both ends (3 goals and a couple of worldwide saves) that won the match - this seems to be a recurring theme and is perhaps more sustainable over the course of a season than expecting to wallop every team off the pitch. Second point - away from home we have scored 3 in first half and 14 in second half. Rather than chasing the game and wasting lots of energy we seem more patient happy to wear teams out and capitalise as they tire. Benefit of Bielsa second year. Ps Ben White not a CDM and Berardi still a liability.

Ben White, class act and still developing

Berra, gives everything for the cause

Bielsa trusts him, that’s all you need to know.

Ben White class act, totally agree. Berra gives everything totally agree. It's just how he gives it and his "over enthusiasm" that worries me. A red card waiting to happen.

I would rather have a "red card waiting to happen" on my leeds teamssheet than one of the wasters we have had over the past decade who have signed for us for the big payday and given nothing on the pitch

Beradi is limited. I am sure he knows he is no Dani Alves. But everyday he can look in the mirror and say he is proud that he gives 100% of what god has given him. Any red card he has ever been given is because he has been giving 100% and has been bettered. He has never been given a red card because he is a spoilt brat that kicks out (Joey Barton anyone? ) .
Beradi would not be in my first XI, but I would love him in my squad. Totally professional (he has never been found to be driving drunk, or racing expensive cars) and give everything

When we make it to the Premier League I really hope that this man is kept on. Another contract, with a remit of bringing on out next generation. What a fabulous role model for the likes of Davis, Struick, Casey, Cresswell, Gotts, Steven's, Bogusz, Edmondson et all.

Thought Berra was excellent yesterday, and never looked likely to lose the plot! Which is great in a derby match!

I totally agree with your sentiment Axe but would argue with your choice of comparison. Try comparing him with all the defenders on our books (who also have no drink driving convictions) or even any one of the eligible defenders, church goers who still live at home, who we could have bought. No, I fully agree that he is a fully committed, heart on sleeve, defender and playing a controlled game is an accomplished defender. My only concern is that it is too easy to press his self destruct button. Then so difficult to play a game walking a yellow card tightrope or worse still, with 10 men.

i agreee with the sentiment and if i ever met berra i'd love to buy him a pint, in a day of modern day players this guy is old school and respect for that. however i think we have to be honest he is just not very good, he ain't a great right back, let alone left or centre back.

respect his time but every day i pray his time is up. time for us to demand better certainly at CB next transfer window.

Axe - agreed that it would be good to keep Bera around, being popular and a positive influence within the club, but as I said a couple of days ago I'd prefer he was encouraged to start along the coaching route here rather than continue within the playing squad. This would free up a spot for Struijk (or Casey after yesterday's run out) - or, if Bielsa feels necessary, for another experienced head who is better suited than Bera to providing CB cover.
