Really looking forward to the game against Crawley in the Cup on Sunday. Hopefully we’ll see how Gelhart, Cresswell and Huggins if picked will show their talents. Fingers crossed we’ll have a decent run in the Cup this time and not be eliminated by a minnow, like Sutton and Histon in the past. ! It’ll give some of those youngsters the potential to perhaps get a place on the bench for the first team. Bielsa’s not afraid to include youth into his first team as we know, so opportunities are there for the brave.
Im certain this game will be televised as the media will see us as fodder for the Giant Killers.

Would play, Meslier, and Bamford, other than them 2, baby shacks rb, leif Davis Lb, struck cdm, roberts and pablo behind, Costa and Pov wide, decent team, CD is the issue, if fit League 1 liam with a kid, or Ayling, he never looks tired

The game is on BBC1.

Bamford needs a rest Richie

This is a perfect opportunity for Greenwood, Geldhert etc to show what they can do.

We should have a reliable number 2 goalkeeper but we do not.

The 1st team bench warmers of Casilla, Shack, Costa, Poveda, Davis, Roberts (if still around) and Pablo should all play along with whoever will be deputizing for Phillip's against Brighton to get a full game in that role.
Then make up the numbers from U23s with the likes of Casey, Creswell, Geldhart and Greenwood.
Rest the regulars as Brighton game is vital with a win there putting us in a very strong position to ensure no relegation.

I think Baz had a good lineup to look at the young guns. Let's see if they are as good as we think they are. Then put a few names on the bench in case it goes Pete Tong.
Pablo as Captain,
There are only a couple there I would change but all in all enough to give Crawley a game methinks.

05 Jan 2021 18:32:24
Thanks Leo mate
Yes that is my lineup that I think should start against Crawley.
I predict a 2 nil or even 3 nil Leeds victory with that line up.

05 Jan 2021 18:34:47
BV, Bamford needs to bang in a few goals, confidence boaster, ready for BHA, 2 first half goals, take him of at HT, 45 mins in 2 weeks will be ok.

05 Jan 2021 18:35:57
Meslier dosent need a rest, ne needs games,
Bamford needs to knock a couple in for confidence.

05 Jan 2021 22:06:17
Good logical points Richie

yeah I can empathise with your reasoning for the inclusion of Bambam and Meslier against Crawley but still prefer Bambam to be rested.

05 Jan 2021 23:05:31
Agree Bamford looks devoid of confidence if he don’t score against Crawley I don’t think he will ever break his goal scoring drought in prem.

06 Jan 2021 04:09:09
Would guess at-
Casilla (not saying I agree)
Drameh, Cooper (if fit) , Casey, Davis
Costa, Hernandez, Shack, Alioski

Decent mix of senior and youth. Think I saw something saying Forshaw is back in training too so maybe a cameo run out.

06 Jan 2021 10:26:18
Geldhert has got to play imo Gummie -he has been doing really well this season and has experience in the first team at Wigan so Crawley shouldn't faze him.

06 Jan 2021 19:04:08
My thought was it would be him or Greenwood to start not both Alf. From what I've read Greenwood is seen as a little further ahead so him to start with Geldhart on for the last 20 or 30 (unless we are down, then Bamford) . Don't think we will play full youth so at the back makes more sense as it's where we have injuries.

06 Jan 2021 19:09:30
Let's be fair, now we are looking fairly comfortable mid table, and with a gap to the next match, Bielsa might just fancy a cup run so could easily be first team to start.

06 Jan 2021 23:20:49
I think they both play together in the u23s though don't they? Do we play a different formation or does one play no9 and the other no10? Chaps who watch the u23s can you help?

07 Jan 2021 01:23:38
Normally play together, Gelhardt plays out wide I think. It's more a case of how many youngsters i think we will play not whether they are same position. Costa, Alioski and Poveda are senior bench (normally) so I'd expect them to get priority over u23s.
