Little update of your ex players

Aapo Halme. Playing defensive mid and keeping Dougall out. Says it all really. Composed on the ball and a very good screen for defence.
Alex Mowatt. Finally knuckled down last 18 months. Captain and leader of a very young side. Our most important player.
Clarke Odour. Only recently been picked. God knows why. Absolute baller. Be clubs looking at him already. You have a sizeable sell on for him.
Malik Wilkes. Where to start? Bone idle, trouble and thinks he's summat special. Off to Hull. I will drive him there.
Really surprised you haven't tested us with a big money bid for Woodrow. Be ideal for you. We have said he’s not for sale, but everyone has a price. Not good enough for prem, but would score the goals to get you up.

I liked Halme when he played for Leeds and looked like a good player. While not been bad on the ball he just didn't look comfortable enough for Bielsa's style. I think it was a good move for everyone involved because he was too good for u23's, we made a profit and Barnsley got a cheap player.

Mowatt was unlucky at Leeds. Only 12 months or so before he was linked with a prem move. Technically a good player but just so slow.

Was shocked we let Clarke Odour go. I thought he always looked very good for the u23's and expected him to get minutes in the first team for us.

Didn’t mean to post it in Premier League section.
Heard you have got upto 50% sell on for Odour. Takes all the set pieces now. God only knows why he wasnt in from the start of the season. But Stendel had his favourites.

Watched Barnsley against West Brom... a game you deserved to win. Oduor looked a player. Liked the look of Thomas and Williams, both just kids. Now you’ve tightened up at the back you’ll be alright. Exciting young team and yes, I wouldn’t mind Woodrow. Frankly any striker would do.

Not sure on this, Barnsley going through a reasonable spell but despite this, still third bottom. Could do with not having to play too many more cup matches.

If your manager had managed to turn halme into a footballer who is good on the ball then fair play to him.

Cause he was a right grog for us, I'm sure that part of the reason he was let go was because he wasnt the type of ball playing player we use under bielsa.

Glad three of the four are doing well, I always liked mowatt, think he missed his chance to play for a top team, season for us where he got ten goals from midfield should have been a springboard for the premiership for him.

Glad he sensed to have got himself sorted

3rd bottom because we had 9 points i think when Struber took over. We are bringing a lot more teams into the dogfight now.

Thanks, Snapski. At this rate, we should be calling you Leeds reserves. I saw my worst ever game at Oakwell, when we lost 1-0 in the FA Cup on a freezing night in January, just before my back operation. But it didn't hurt as much as the Wednesday result.
