Beat me to it Martyn or what about Chris Wilder?

I am complete opposite of Berm but have said many times I think Berm is just as passionate supporter as me or indeed any of us.

Phillips does have his flaws and Berm is absolutely correct that his lack of pace is generally the cause of the majority of the errors he makes.

But to keep going on about lack of English nous against English teams doesn’t add up.

The players we all would of have played above Declan Rice are the ones we already own already in Llorrente and Koch.

Until such time as we actually put our best team out we cannot say we cannot deal with these types of teams.

This year we’ve beaten both Burnley and the Blunts who play the most direct English way.

I agree with Berm that our young keeper is as good a prospect as any in Europe just now and i’m sure he will look even better protected by Koch and Llorente

Luckily because of Bielsa we don’t have to play Ipswich Wigan etc in the league anymore.

And West Ham Betm is correct did a job on us not because Moyes is a tactical genius he admitted afterwards they never even practiced set pieces, they beat us because we could not compete with them in the air. maybe with Koch and Lorente we could?

And who else could bielsa have played that night, possibly Struick.

Finally, the majority of the criticisms yesterday were directed at Bielsa, Orta what about the players?

I always say i’ll back any Leeds player if they play for the shirt. but that was non existent yesterday, Pablo worked harder in his cameo against Spurs than in ninety minutes against Crawley.

Watch the game again there wasn’t one crunching tackle from us. Where was the passion who was driving us forwards?

Whilst Jenkins and Casey may regret not making a better go of their opportunity yesterday what about Kelvin and Pablo’s (that keeper) accountability?

Why are people not highlighting the complete absence of passion and fight from whomever wore the Leeds shirt yesterday?

As Berm will almost certainly agree you have to match these type of teams for fight and effort and passion before you even start with tactics.

Yes Blunts, Fulham, Brighton all progressed with their full teams into the next round of the cup only time will tell if that was a good result for them or not.

You’ve told me before Berm it’s a business it will be interesting to see if a little more FA cup revenue sees these teams place at risk the premier league survival.

Very good post class

Agree due to belisa lucky we don’t have to play teams like Wigan however when we do (Crawley in cup) expect to get beat

As mentioned we did Burnley but they got a good goal ruled out and Sheff Utd took two wonder saved from our keeper for the points. We were lucky in both and against two teams who were and or are still struggling

Interesting you mention fight I agree and does this also come from the manager, can he inspire players? Can he get the fight?

Even with Kiko on his day great shot stopper but also mental and a liability, should belisa not be able to read the player and decide if to pick or not? Clearly Kiko not in right frame of mind

All of the players were accountable yesterday, I think they also showed no fight or passion against spurs and went through the motions

I just honestly miffed more heat and questions are not chucked at belisa. Like all Leeds fans I can see belisa a great quailties and football belisa brings but unlike most Leeds fans I think he is equally accountable for Leeds failings on the pitch and think it is predictable And easy to see.

I think as a manager you have to give players who cost big bucks and who are on big wages opportunities or you risk friction with the board. Casilla is one such and Costa another but they are both hopeless. Costa just doesn't look interested at all and provides very little in terms of opportunities or goal threat. Maybe its too cold for him. If experienced players such as these ding provide leadership on the pitch the of course we will lack passion. Hernandez now in decline sadly. I don't think he can provide what we need any longer.

not sure about Kiko but belisa has to give costa a chance as it was belisa who asked for him as part of the deal to stay on last year as manager.
