Time to tinker slightly with team, I would have Pablo on bench and try to rest him, play some part to keep sharp but maybe 20 mins. Don't think MB will but would like to see Izzy or bouguz in his place.
Would also drop Harrison and play either Clarke or Shackleton.
Be happy with draw against villa and then beat Ipswich, still need a point or 2 for 3rd.
Scary because other playoff teams in form but if we play at our top level can beat any of these, but can we do that over 3 games?

Roofe, Alioski, Douglas all out - Leif Davis confirmed he's had surgery and is done for the year on Instagram too, while Halme, Termunzhukov + Nicell are seemingly injured too (didn't feature in last 23s game, in Halme's case a while) .

With that in mind, I think Bielsa will pick:

Casilla; Ayling, Jansson, Cooper, Dallas; Forshaw, Klich; Hernandez, Roberts, Harruison; Bamford.
Res: BPF, Phillips, Berardi, Shackleton, Clarke, Gotts, Stevens.

Others who could feature Brown, Edmondson, Diaz, Bogusz, Struijk, Odour, Hosannah.

I would personally go full strength for this game and if we're going to rest anybody do it against Ipswich, however if we do need to rest somebody then Pablo, Ayling and Pontus the obvious ones.

Love to see Shack get a start on the right wing. MOT ALAW.

2.) 30 Apr 2019 14:20:42
I dread the "same team again" statement but I think he is not a man for change. Personally I would like to see Odour for Harrison and, if necessary, Edmundson up front.

3.) 30 Apr 2019 20:21:49
We need to secure 3rd. No time for tinkering right now.

4.) 01 May 2019 11:12:40
Apparently efl brought a new rule in that teams have to play there first strong team. Was due to the dog botherers making 10 changes on the last game and affecting the relegation places. Not that it affects owt this year as the relegation places are already confirmed.

Give the under 23’s a run out again Ipswich.

Fantastic to go top and get 3 massive points when we didn't play well, sign of a great team, win ugly.
Great defense which makes it all possible, white and coops great together and if could get promotion, have to pay the 20-30 mil for white.
Roberts made of glass, but looked slightly better with Pablo central and costa wide.
Feel we still not replaced saiz and need more creativity in middle, especially if Pablo off. I would definitely try buy Eze from QPR, he looks very skillful and with bielsa to improve him could be fantastic buy.
Just watched first 2 episodes of Take us home, like it but hard knowing what happens, sure be crying by end.
Klich was on fire first half of season, this season unsure why he in.
Still need that striker, feel bamford works hard but not good at scoring, think if Eddie fit shortly, he should start for 5-6 games before Jan and see if he answer, if not get player in who can.
Hope boro don't have a blinder against us, could see Woodgate getting sack if we win.

1.) 27 Nov 2019 05:09:54
Yes. I didn’t think it was a bad display.
Thought harrison, Dallas and amazing white were exceptional in first half.
Defence best in league and look good and work hard together and cover well. Think the whole team work hard together and close down.
Thought Roberts and Klich were poor and we better with Alioski and costa.
So frustrating about the chances we miss and sorry I have to say Bamford should have had def 2.
Happy with the win and we need to keep going cause Fulham and wba going to be a handful.

2.) 27 Nov 2019 07:12:59
Good posts but reflection bam bam is a team player and deserves his place. He headed a couple of their corners away to safety so he also defends well. I agree goals are his issue but also it's great that when a player goes off injured or is off form we have a strong bench to replace them. Players will not always have fantastic games but I don't see any lazy players at all. If we go up I think Roberts will be a better player in prem. This league can be savage on players at the best of times and it is definitely more contact based. Still excellent 3 points and MOT we go again.



04 Nov 2019 01:48:05
Think Radz has a big chance here to be a legend, we doing amazing to be where we are and with just a couple of players in Jan could see us promoted.
He should let QSi invest, if that's what they want, could prove to be final piece. He should have done that last January but didn't, hope he has learnt now.
I am not that up with fair play rules but for me, I would try buy white, a striker and like the look of Eze for QPR, he is that replacement player for siaz and Pablo.
He had a great touch, seemed to sail past players and think he has also scored 6 already from MF.

Definitely agree with snapping up Ben White ASAP, as for the FFP rules they do make considerable restrictions for clubs to buy.
But you can see some clubs do bend the rules somewhat ie; Wolves, Derby etc.
Sadly one rule for one and not with the other when Leeds Utd are concerned.

2.) 04 Nov 2019 08:46:15
Already have your saiz replacement, he's in our youth. Roberts, 20, Bogusz, 17, Gotts, 19, Stevens, 20, one of them will prove good enough in the end i'm sure, at the moment it looks likely to be roberts.

3.) 04 Nov 2019 09:08:39
Spot on melbs, Eze is class very skillful, would make a great signing.



03 Nov 2019 21:19:09
Good performance and great to have that 2 goal cushion for last part of match, much easier to watch.
Defense looks great and cassila improved from last season.
Pity Eddie injured as looking likely to get a start, Belisa May keep same team for Saturday and he back to bench.
I think Eddie may have scored a couple of those chances, bamfords lacking confidence, that run through middle should have been hit round keeper.

Melbourne white

1.) 03 Nov 2019 22:30:32
But would Eddie have been in those same positions?

2.) 04 Nov 2019 07:40:14
The one in the second half where Roberts put the cross in and bamford came sliding in Nketiah would have already been there for me to tap in. Bamford was unlucky with the disallowed goal looked onside to me when cross came in his work rate deserves more goals.



30 Oct 2019 22:14:55
I feel we need to keep Belisa as best opportunity for promotion, feel we still have another gear in us. Think if bamford can get a few goals, his finishing will come on.
Would love to see bielsa in the premiership with extra funds.
Like most of us, can't understand and am frustrated that he not playing Eddie, I feel he deserves a starting place and would try the games now till Jan to try 2 up top with bamford.
We have a run of games now that if we are a promotion side, have to be winning and for me, drop klich and have Eddie / bamford.
What has he got to loose in giving it a go, it could be the difference. If that doesn't work, then we know and have Jan to try fix.
My team for sat (? Pablo/ coop fit) be-
Ailing white Coops Douglas
Pablo Roberts Harrison
Bamford Eddie.

Melbourne, if pablos fit he should start centrally, yet to see him and costa click and I think if ever, this would be the day.

2.) 31 Oct 2019 11:15:35
Samo Pablo best position is starting wider drifting in, not central. He acquires many goals that way due to his trickery which creates sudden space for shooting, i. e. half chances but because he's a magician many nestle in onion bag. Starting out wide best place for him especially in his evergreen years.



27 Oct 2019 09:34:58
Happy with that result, they were good and pressed us. Not sure what possession stats were but think they were on top and a draw a great result.
Positives- thought cassila was very good and kept us in it, seems to have improved and not quite as rash now.
Again white fantastic, what a loan and just wished we had bought him, would like coops to come through unscathed and replace beradi.
Another clean sheet and hard to score against.
Also thought Eddie played well, was all over and took on defense.
Negatives- why is Harrison in the team every game, poor player and can't go past anyone, needs dropping.
Dallas not effective in middle but was good at RB before, would prefer Roberts or Bogusz to start over him.
Lastly, he has to try Eddie and bamford, give it a go, feel with bamford pulling defenders, would create space for Eddie's pace.

1.) 27 Oct 2019 11:02:27
Agree as George has said for weeks we should have 2 up top.
Got to be worth trying.

2.) 27 Oct 2019 12:14:58
I wouldn’t be replacing Stuarty. He’s reliable. It would be Klich and Harrison I would replace. Can’t wait for Pablo to be back, as he can give us the curing edge we are currently lacking. That said, another clean sheet, and still right in the mix. All is good in Leeds World!

3.) 27 Oct 2019 17:07:44
very true bright even i am impressed with the clean sheets and agree dallas is undroppable at the moment.

4.) 27 Oct 2019 19:57:20
But wait until we concede from a corner. And if Phillips misses a tackle. Some know a lot about nothing.
MOT brothers.

5.) 27 Oct 2019 22:06:34
Well yeah if we conceded from a corner it will rehighlight our obvious weakness in lack of height and phyiscal presence won’t it? No one wants that. Sheff we’d should of scored from a cross other day but lucky they missed a great chance

As for Phillips he showed his international pedigree for me agasint a better team but as others rightly said most our players played poorly against sheff wed just I expect better from future England players like Eddie who played well I thought

Some people know a lot about nothing some people know a some about a little. lol will voice opinions on the team they love it’s what supporters do ain’t it cork? Or should supporters only voice opinion if you agree with it

This site is getting so one sided in what can and can’t be said it’s like nazi Germany but only championship football over socialist politics we will have burning if books and records next.

6.) 28 Oct 2019 04:34:55

You know we are opposites with our footballing philosophies but don't you bare bend to the censor/ posters. As much as I disagree with most of what you write, I am a better man for reading it. How else would I even see a different point of view unless there was someone who is articulate and passionate to describe it to me. A job you do well.
And shock/ horror I sometimes even agree!

KP. me and you will die licked in a deadly embrace on that one. He has found his position and I just can't wait for him to get an international call up
Eddie and Bamford. we are on the same page. I was brought up with clarke/ Jones, Jordan/ Hankin, Chapman/ Wallace, Deane/ Wallace, Yeboah/ Wallace, Hasselbaink/ Wallace, Bridges/ Smith, Viduka/ Smith, Becchio/ Beckford
I always think that teams go for one up top when a) they only have one decent forward, or b) they have a weak midfield. We have 2 decent forwards and a strong midfield.

{Ed047's Note - Jesus, licked in a deadly embrace, not sure that sounds a good way to go 😂

7.) 28 Oct 2019 10:43:24
cheers axe

I agree that while we often disagree i can see your points of view and respect them and can agree with them as well.

be boring if everyone agreed. I think my most contencious point is KP which i know annoys many. I understand most leeds fans think it and a lot of pros give him praise. i just don't get it, some on here rate him more than winks? personally I think he is weaker than all of the villa midfeileders (even the slutmonkey greslish) but i respect everyones view.

I think his test will be the prem. and hope to see him get tested next season in our white kit and hope he proves me wrong then proves me wrong again in england white kit

id love that because he is our player and i do honestly think he is a great bloke.

also licked in a deadly embrace is the title for my new musical hope you don't mind me borrowing it?

9.) 28 Oct 2019 12:37:55
I think we have a weak midfield axe.

10.) 28 Oct 2019 16:32:44

I dont

We can agree to disagree, I have no problem with that.

11.) 28 Oct 2019 18:56:35
I agree with both,

i don't think we have a weak midfield but think with only two we can not play phillips he offers a lot but he ain't got the legs to play two man midfield, an in form klich or shacks and forwshaw i think could hold their own though.

Don’t agree entirely with post.
Think u right about Pablo, an off day and ref was not great but good decision on red after he already blown for their free kick.

I thought the game was good, we played some great quick passes and far better than Wigan, maybe need to stop trying to walk ball into net.
I think Harrison was better and has improved, his first touch is much better and trying to get at defenders now, still needs work on shooting.

I know, my brother took me to EL and my first game was against Man U, I was 8y/ o and then the players came out in there suits to walk around pitch, I just remember Gary bailey even though he was not leeds keeper.
