What a wonderful weekend! Head finally recovering!

Just wanted to add to the posts about Pascal Struick. Those who'll remember my old under 23 posts will know I've been a fan for some time.

I think it says a lot that Aappo and Diaz went but Pascal was kept. Bielsa trusted him to through him on against Stoke and it was tough for the lad, heard he was really low after that match. He was also prepared to do the same in a key game against Barnsley when it wasn't going well.

Really pleased that he got a full game against Derby and showed some good touches. Loved to see KP going straight to him at half time, hugging him and talking to him as they went to the changing room. He is tall, good header at both ends of the pitch, and can pass. Also great lad who has got his head down and worked hard. He will learn and develop a lot under Bielsa and I think he could be a good bet for the bench if he has a good preseason. Can cover CB in back 4, 3 at the back and CM, so is a flexible addition.

Good to hear from you Spanish! I’ve missed your reasoned posts!

Thanks Down, had a bit of a tough year personally and thought this season was a re run of the same arguments from the year before, whether you trusted Bielsa to do a job or not. Have been back in Spain since Early Feb and finally decided to renew my season ticket when Pablo scored against Swansea, although not sure when I’ll be able to go!

well if you need me to look after your ticket for you when you are not around Spanish ;)

I trust your Struijk thoughts. It's good to hear from you again Spanish. You know you are my "go to" guy for all things U23. Sunday made me feel a lot better for the future re Ben White. If we do lose him I would not panic with a Struijk/ Cooper back 2. Altho ideally I would like to see a White/ Struijk back 2 in a couple of years.

Thanks Leodis. Glad Bielsa, Radz and Orta have delivered and we can all unite behind them, at least for a bit!

One bonus for us during the lockdown and restart was that the under 23s didn’t have any games, so they could be involved in the first team training where appropriate. Remember Bielsa opted against friendlies because he said he had three teams in house to use. I think that has meant some of the under 23s will have had more attention from Bielsa and his team. He’ll know which ones could be at least part of the squad next year. Like to see Struick, Shackleton and Poveda getting another full game against Charlton.

Good to have you back Spanish. A great weekend in my part of the world, Leeds fans out in force yesterday. and what a great win with all the changes yesterday.

Thanks guys! It’s been a tough time in Spain. Thankfully my region locked down quickly, and seriously. We’re just coming out of it now! A very strange year that I will never forget! One more wonderful night to celebrate on weds, devastating that we can’t be there, imagine what that would be like. Now looks like it might be a send off for Carlos as well.

Let’s party, it’s been a long time and a lot of pain coming.

Great to have you back on the site Spanish you have been missed, hope things are moving in a better direction for you now, Leeds success was a welcome tonic I’m sure.

Take care mate, I’m out to Tenerife on the 04th and talking to friends out there things are still pretty strict compared to home.
