It's an old problem. We play very attractive football and can do very well against teams that are prepared to play an open game. However where teams have built any success on be solid and developing play from having a strong defensive formation we struggle. We eventually came away with the title with some ease last year but that was on the back of other teams falling away and us scraping wins in very hard fought games eg Barnsley and Swansea. Last night we played well up to a point and stats don't show everything. We had shots but I don't think their keeper had a shot to save. So with less possession Wolves had the ball in the back of the net twice and Meslier pulled off a couple of good saves. We really never looked liked scoring. That is Bielsa's next challenge. Getting more shots on target with some prospect of scoring and keeping our defence a little more solid. Remember Meslier saved us against Sheffield and Fulham knocked in three and could have come away with an unlikely draw.

always said that stats can be good upto a point but can also be really misleading. When teams sit back we struggle. Last night it was a quality wolves team but we have also had same problems with Ipswich, wigan, luton etc

what annoys me is our lack of danger from set plays in tight games they can make a difference and we are useless at them.

Yep. Agree all the above.
It’s simple. Score more of the many chances. Our finishing woeful last night and as I said their keeper never made a save.
Wolves tactics were spot on. They knew they couldn’t match us first 30 min so just dug in.
We ran out of steam and ideas. From what should have been comfy 3 or 4 goal win in first half could have been 0-2 or 3 second half.

im not sure our finishing was woeful I just think we failed to create much half decent. I don't remember anyone missing a sitter. just when teams sit back we never have a plan b. age old for us under belisa. Glad I don't think many teams will sit back because in this league most will score past us.

Agree Berm that Bielsa' s Leeds teams really need to improve considerably on scoring from corners, free kicks Very infuriating how inept we appear at them.

It should be such a fruitful method of scoring that Revie, Wilko and even OLeary Leeds teams were masters of.

could it be that the person taking the corners and free kicks needs to be changed?

Yes Alf, KP takes the corners and he is usually inept at taking a good corner. give the job to Pablo or even Harrison.
