I have to smile when I read these supporters messaging, saying that we MUST get De Paul, he is the best in his position, he will take us to the next. All well and good and maybe quite true but until a few weeks ago nobody here had ever heard of him and even now the only evidence is an amalgam of "best bits" on you tube. I somehow think we would learn more from a "worst bits" compilation. I hope I am just being cynical and we do get him and he does become world class. Let's just wait and see, Que Sera.

Leo From all accounts RDP is a class act and would be a worthy investment. If he does come, let's hope the winter isn't a problem for him or he gets homesick like Saiz did. I'm more concerned by the money spent on Rodrigo. I believe it shall prove to be a waste. Can't see him scoring more than 7 league goals this season. I also believe we could've blooded Edmondson more. I realize Bielsaball places huge demand physically on players and the style of play might not suit his game but if I were running the show I would not have spent the big money but tried to train what we have. Bub knows better than George though.

George think you have to use both systems firstly by coaching young players with potential up to the level required, opposite this is the need to bring in the finished article with the quality and ability to hit the ground running, who can play Bielsa's system and maybe still have room for improvement.

1970 I agree with your post but the point I'm making is this. I see Rodrigo hitting no more than about 55% the quality and form of Paddy. I think Edmondson could reach 30-35% in his first season with Bielsa if trained properly and given a chance. Therefore, I don't see how paying all that money worth it for the extra 20%.

21 Sep 2020 20:40:47
And what is the evidence you will be judging these percentages on George? How will you be measuring it?

21 Sep 2020 20:56:31
Alf The usual metrics. Hold up play, running off the ball, pressing, set piece usefulness, defensive contribution to set pieces (we know what happened there) , assists, shots per game, shot accuracy, goals. I don't like what I've seen from him so far.

Ooooooh. Stats rolling out now? Based on algorithms no doubt, . Let’s just enjoy our first season back, and not promise to get tattoos when we’re wrong eh. We’re Leeds fans, not mystic bleed in’ Meg!

Have you seen much of Edmonson then georgy? Do me a favour. You’ve seen Ryan play as much as you’ve seen Rodrigo.
