Horrible start to a Saturday after a loss, like others rewatched it again and better team won, other than Ayling and Messlier incredibly poor performance.

Most worryingly in both Chelski and West Ham we have not looked the fitter team whether that’s international fixtures or more likely a lack of confidence, fear even is very troubling.

We are worst in league at conceding at set pieces well joint with Leicester but they’re making up for it in other areas, the best two teams at scoring from set pieces in the league yep Chelski and West Ham so we knew but couldn’t stop them.

I think when our confidence and energy levels are at it, the set piece issue is not so evident or it appears so, Leicester are fourth with same amount of goals conceded at set pieces, therefore, I do think loss of confidence may be the biggest difference just now.

But what do we do, I cannot defend some of those performances last night and respect people’s right to have a go. For me if they wear the shirt and give everything i’ll always back them but that wasn’t the case for a few last night.

But going forward for a month or more at least both Koch and Lorente won’t be available. play Struick? or Charlie Cresswell meant to be exceptional in the air?

January a rubbish window to buy but possibly loan decent defenders?

Then I actually recall an old Berm suggestion from way back, and whilst we often criticise Berm he does always say how he proposes to fix improve a situation.

One or both Millwall centre backs, buy them in Jan talking £4million for both? (jake cooper the better one excellent in the air) and whilst I appreciate Bub likes ball playing centre halves but I don’t see us losing either of last two games if we had that sort of defender in place. so i’d go championship fix in january just until both our shiny international centre halves are fully fit.

Not Pontus, think he’s not side before self same with Danny Rose prefer Rico Henry at left back.

See Berm i do read and take in your posts 👍

Appreciate Bubs stubbornness won’t permit this and I still believe Bub is our greatest single asset but this is how I (well Berm) propose we address things in the short term.

Has it got to the point where we are just relying on Sheff United, West. Brom. and hopefully Fulham or even Burnley accumulating less points than Leeds come end of season.
And a bottom four or five relegation battle for the rest of the season.

If Bielsa was sacked right now as Berm. wants at least the new manager would hopefully sanction the urgent need to sign a CB, a lb cm, and CF in tbe Jan window. plus he would play Pablo.

Do we have the money Baz? C'mon 49ers. Fingers out.

Are you actually serious about sacking Bielsa? I know football fans are fickle and have short memories but come on! 🙄.

Leo the problem is that Bielsa likes a small squad and has already stated he doesn't want another CB and probably doesn't want any other players in this window

I think Leeds are now in big relegation trouble with Bielsa's stubbornness and weaknesses.

I know we've had a couple of bad games but talking of sacking is a bit steep! We were singing are undying love for him 2 month ago.

cheers mate been saying for ages to get in the Millwall cb they are class hence the clean sheets.

BV appreciate it’s really tough watching the lads just now.

However, I think it’s reasonable to assume we were candidates for relegation from the outset, any team coming up would naturally fall into that category, with a finite amount of money as is our situation.

We remain ahead of the other promoted teams, but cannot believe you could contemplate sacking Bielsa? And who is the managerial replacement? How many players can the new Manager bring in? Do we have the funds? I said in my own earlier post, we know why we’re losing games at present and we know why we’re currently weak in that area.

What we don’t actually know is if Bubs, Orta or Radz will take on new recruitments in January?

We’re all guessing a few said Pablo was being ostracised by Bub but yet he was back in squad as soon as he was back to fitness, personally, I think Bielsa deserves our respect and patience to turn this around.

Without him we would not even be having this debate.
