Good result that away from home. Bossed the 2nd half but just struggling for creativity up front somewhat. I would have taken that before kick off so happy enough.

Decent result. but who is scoring for Leeds on Thursday?

12 May 2024 20:48:02
Baz, A certain young Striker who DF has done No justice will score and become a cult hero. mark my word. that's what I Invision happening.

12 May 2024 21:24:56
Hooksie I hear yer but we have been waiting all season for DF to be " brave" actually more accurately "wise" and gibe MJ a chance

Bottom line

Rutter needs dropping for MJ for Thursdays literally MUST WIN match

Rutter no goals in past 14 matches

Rutter no assists in last 9 matches

Rutter is NOT contributing when it now matters most in any shape or form.

12 May 2024 22:50:59
Have to agree, he is really struggling.

13 May 2024 00:57:18
Team for Thursday

Meslier ( sadly no better choice) )
Roberts ( if fit to start if not Byram)
Gnonto ( or Anthony)
Joseph (but Farke won't start him so Piroe up front )

Summerville, Rutter etc.

typo Kamara ( not Cresswell)

Although Rutter’s performances of late have not been brilliant, he can still create something out of nothing like he did against Middlesbrough to win that penalty.
For me he always has that in his locker, what concerns me more though with him is his carelessness, losing the ball very easily. I wouldn’t be surprised to read a stat that he loses the ball more than any other player in our team.
It’s this part I am concerned about him and especially with Norwich’s quick counter attacking, it could cost us?

13 May 2024 08:38:14
I do concur, their form isn't great. Ha ing said that, I don't think dropping our two most creative players is going to be the best idea. They can both still create (or in the case of Cry - score) something out of nothing. Something no one else in the team does, as the season has shown.

I want Joseph to start and drop Rutter back into 10. Rest Gruev or Gray.

Regardless, I think we see a more positive tactical approach Thursday. Was clear we played for a clean sheet yesterday and anything else further than that was deemed a bonus. Not the most aesthetic thing to watch, but job done in that regard, and it now sets us up to go at them at ER.

All or nothing Thursday.

13 May 2024 08:44:55
And I don't necessarily disagree with your team selection, Baz. Just would be reluctant to drop them given they can produce magic IF they find form again (it's got to happen at some point hasn't it? Surely. )

13 May 2024 13:06:08
Look at it from a different angle; if Farke drops Cree and Gio, we blank, and canaries either score two, or beat us on Pens, as when brought on, the hindsight brigade say it was too late to have any effect, no matter what minute subs come one, he is damned.
If we don’t get the right result, no matter what he does, he is damned.
Now I’m not saying which is right, as to be perfectly honest, I don’t know; it’s a real 50-50 call, with no correct answer at this point in time.
Both Cree and Gio can turn the game in 60seconds, and we are through. I will support whatever decision he makes, and hope that it’s proves to be the correct one!

13 May 2024 13:47:46
Watching Rutters last 9 matches in particular Bright, I think it's more than fair to say, in fact it's factual that he has been playing badly giving ball away incessantly, often in dangerous areas, he has not scored nor assisted goals etc

At moment Rutter might actually be somewhat effectual coming on after say 65 mins ; he certainly isn't effective at all starting matches playing 90 mins at moment

Farke made a " brave" wise decision in previous game strengthening midfield, he needs to make another for Thursday.

As for Summerville it's more contentious to drop him. play him from start OK . but maybe dropping him will really fire him up and bring him on at HT.

13 May 2024 13:49:07
We must eliminate the handbrake and drop the Bulgarian. He's also hurting Leeds.

13 May 2024 17:37:33
I’m not going to argue there Baz, as simply put, you are right that he is totally off it. Could he produce on Thurs? No one knows, but stats say no at the minute. We do know that he is however capable of winning the match for us with a touch, a pass, a one-two. Risk is the key word, and it’s huge, for a huge game.
I would hate to be in DF’s shoes with the key decisions he has to make.

13 May 2024 17:38:33
Some good points, Bright, Baz and agree about Gruev, George.

Just hope DF gets it right and those he picks perform to their capabilites and fight tooth and nail to get to the final.
