Pablo and his determination, bravery, quality and control needs to start against these top teams.

As for me the starting 11 didn't have anywhere enough belief that they they would get anything from this game against Spurs.

For me Pablo has by far the BEST WINNERS MENTALITY in the team ; only Ayling comes close to him.

Baz He can't do it for 90 minutes. Much more effective coming on after an hour. As for mentality, that's not the problem. We just won the Championship and beat the Baggies by 5. It's more to do with level of opposition. Spurs no mugs. We're a mid-table team. Against bottom half teams, we're a frightening prospect. Against top half opposition, more often than not meat and drink due to our style of play. If we acquire better players in certain positions and adapt our style against the better teams we could easily be top 6 material.

Agreed George, although if we started with Pablo and replaced him with Rodrigo after 45-60 mins I wonder of Rodders would look like a world beater?

Against the better teams, Pablo coming on after 60 minutes at 3 nil down the game is already gone.

Why not indeed as Canada suggests let Pablo start the match and play for 60 minutes to affect the game from the start when we are level and in the game.

As for a winning mentality Pablo has it in abundance more than any other Leeds player in my opinion and his presence in the side is a lift to most of the players.

It's a kop out just to say these teams have better players. Spurs weren't great we made them look better than they were with our mistakes and timid mentality.

Ayling is a battler and a tryer.

I agree team looked best before kick off. maybe like us they knew it was coming and how it was going to unfold. One pundit said won’t be long before Leeds lose faith I hope that don’t come true.

Come on! We can only dream of some of those players in the Spurs squad who have been there and done it in this league. We are still on a learning curve with a handful of quality players.

02 Jan 2021 23:47:05
Why would we be losing faith? We are a newly promoted team 12 points above our closest recent promotion rivals playing some of the best football in the league. Anyone saying we are naive and need to play defensive, need to look at the position of Fulham and West Brom, Burnley and Brighton. Boring football and near the bottom, I couldn’t think of anything worse.

Really like Pablo and thought he gad a great year last year. But realistically he isn't a central midfielder with the legs for a top half premier league team. Against the de bruynes, pogbas, mc tominays he simply won't be at the races. His strength is a killer pass to unlock a defence, his weakness is giving cheap ball away which is somthing that is costing us dear against the better teams.

Bmc4b not a central midfielder
( Klich's number 8 role) rather a CAM. Give him 60 minutes and see how he does, I am sure Leeds would succeed better.

Love away days I think they meant against the better teams but can’t be sure what they meant

For me the team looked a bit defeated before kick off and looked to be going through the motions rather than actually with beliefs they could win yesterday.
