A lot of crowd trouble been reported, brum fans attacking police, stewards and throwing seats. Some people have described it as the worst violence they've seen. Hope Brum get slapped with a big fine. Grealish last season, now attacking police and stewards.

Well Leeds will be punished then

Lots of police vehicles heading towards the ground as i was leaving. Was obvious trouble had kicked off before I heard reports but didn't see any of it.

We played 3-3-3-1 today which Bielsa had been trying for a while.

I liked 3 at the back. I liked Dallas as a wing further forward. Felt that we were an attacking player short though. That may be due to how ineffective Costa and Klich were today creatively though.

Eddie made us worse once again when he came on. I really like him as a player but it's difficult to see how he works in this side.

The change that needs to be made is getting a proper 10 into the side. And if anyone thinks that player is Bamford you need to give up. It's Roberts or Pablo. Roberts is the best young player we have at Leeds and is an incredible talent. I can't wait to see him starting.

Faith, are you saying Eddie's future is not with us? Bristol C keep harping on about having him from Jan.

Thought Roberts looked good when he came on. Would prefer him in a midfield three though.

Eddie's future is not with us whatever happens. This season though, I would like us to see if there is a way we can use him. He has regularly made us worse when coming on though. It's a recent trend and it's alright watching highlights and seeing him put away chances but a game is 90 minutes. Not 3! and we need more to a player so we can keep creating chances.

Spot on have

Eddie is obviously a good player, but he doesn’t fit us.

Lubo

Roberta looked miles fitter than against WBA

Really really rate him

Eddie doesn't get the delivery to give him goalscoring chances. Bamford works hard but doesn't score. We basically need a goalscorer in Jan.

Problem with Eddie is that sides sit so deep and park the bus against us so there’s no room in behind.

He would actually shine in a lesser side where he can hit teams on the counter. Would probably look better in the Premiership actually.

Perfect player to bring on if we are a couple up and take advantage of the space but at the moment that’s just not happening.

Roberts needs to playing in the 10 role as much as poss. I think he’s a top top player

I thought Eddie looked a bit heavy legged today, was wearing a knee bandage I certainly have seen him look sharper

Love Roberts. And I like this idea.

Brilliant. We needed that. And we scored after Bamford was pulled. So, hopefully, MB has evidence now that we're not a total shambles without him.

To be fair we were! Brum dictated much of the second half.

The lack of creativity is the big worry. With teams parking the bus we need a bit of ingenuity to prise them open. Pablo usually gives us this but when he is off form or out injured we look clueless. We create so few clear cut chances we cannot afford to fluff them like we do (Alioski today)

Our set pieces are also very poor, hence why teams have no problem giving us corners/free kicks galore as they know there is very little threat from them.

Brum came on strong in the second half and could easily have pinched a draw.
Until we start turning dominance into goals we will always be sweating on results like today.

we were cruising in the first half, should have been up a couple at least.
second half we take off bamford and we cant seem to hold on to the ball and are under siege for much of the half.
must be bamfords fault.

Agreed

I think our main problem is we just aren’t getting behind defences and creating real chances.

Diagonal balls into the box are easy to defend.

Then when we do get a chance we seem to either want an extra touch or we just can’t find the net with a shot.

Second half looked like a Brum goal was coming. Fortunately they couldn’t hit a barn door and Kiko made a couple of good punches and interceptions when required.

I’m not sure Eddie is the striker to fit our system but he’s surely a good option for either Harrison or Costa?

posted 3 weeks, 5 days ago

My conclusion after today is Bamford has to start and Harrison makes way for Roberts and also Klich makes way for Forshaw

posted 3 weeks, 5 days ago

Like I said ages ago Roberts is our future, quality.

posted 3 weeks, 5 days ago

Agreed

But he’s got to be fully fit and long spells of it.

Not convinced he ever will
