Disappointing result yesterday as we had enough chances in the first half to put the game to bed. My biggest concern was the lack of striking options on the bench, which was obvious to all. I do not prescribe to Bielsa's opinion that having no striking options other than Bamford had no influence on the result. Not taking opportunities is the reason why we did not win. If it is not Bamford's day or he requires additional support on the pitch then we need the option available. Scoring goals is not also just Bamford's responsibility therefore we need options in midfield to also support. Klich looks jaded and offers little goal threat, Dallas is not a central midfielder as although he offers great work rate, he has little guile and struggles with positional sense leaving a chasm between defence and attack. At the very least, a striker and a midfielder needs to be added to the squad sooner rather than later. Football is a squad game these days due to the physical demands on players and therefore needs an element of player rotation.

Just like we had at Arsenal could have been 4 up, but we don’t have a striker like all season, and that blame has to go to MB or did he just over look this little point when he put his plans together.

{Ed025's Note - i cant believe the grief bielsa is getting on these pages, he has done a brilliant job on a limited budget and you are lucky to have him imo, the good times are just around the corner and hopefully you will be back in the big time next season where you belong and it will be because of him not in spite of him if you do..

Absolute Ed025 Bielsa is the reason we have performed so well . he of course is not perfect. but as you say Leeds have been blessed to have Bielsa.

Tight Radz and not good at recruitment Orta are the real reasons for missing out on promotion last season. this season we shall see after the next 2 weeks of the January window.

{Ed025's Note - the thing with bielsa BV is that he does things his own way and can be bloody minded, we dont know if he has been offered money for players or not mate but it would not surprise me one bit if he had and refused it..

ed you are of course right to a degree. but wrong as well. everything great is because of belisa but everything wrong is also his fault

we can defend set plays. he don't do defenders (like pep) , he burns us out half way through. last year he threw away an aamzing chance and one win in seven looks like he is doing the same

he is bloody minded, will pick under performing players. the list goes on

yes he gets a lot right but last year he got too much wrong. this year he didn't learn from last year. that is the problem.

{Ed025's Note - i can see what your saying BW and yes he is a flawed genius and always has been, he does things his way and tactically he is very good, i dont believe there is anybody else out there who could do a better job though on what these days is a limited budget, by hook or by crook you have to get up this season and he is your best chance of doing that, then re-evaluate the situation when the money that the premiership brings kicks in mate..

i disagree about that. trouble with belisa is he needs quality and can't get best out of players or grind out results. championship teams need a manager who can get every drop out of players and grind out 1-0 wins

warnock, pearson (not been at watford long had we made an appraoch) , chris houton, lee bowyer (promotion in short careeer with non-fancied team) plus probably a good few names i can't think of are all better qualitifed to get a championship promtoion. they can set up to hold on for a win and scrap to promotion. belisa or do or bust and this time of year his teams always seem to bust. his flaws outweigh his genius overall, which is why he ain't won much and won't get us up.
