Looks like Erwin is set to sign on loan for Bury (Assume till Jan). Could be a good move for all parties as long as he gets some game time.

We have to give rosler and the players time although to me it seems a simple fix of changing the formation and tactics at home, I would go 4-4-2 with adeyemi holding, cookie in an advanced role dallas and botaka, until Buckley gets match fit although botaka needs a bit of work on his final ball, with wood and antilucy up top, if cookie not performing bring Murphy on in advanced role.
I just hope rosler does what he says he is going to do, and learns from his obvious mistakes at home 4-3-3 is definitely not working at home it's quite clear for all of us who witnessed that abject performance on Saturday.

phillips had been doing well now nowhere to be seen. sloth Erwin also nowhere. we are not scoring like last season. we said winger got three. taylor does more than dallas when we attack. well this time break is needed. forwards can't score so midfield need to step up. new players in but were playing same football style as last year. enough said
05 Oct 2015 12:24:19
No we are not playing the same football as last year. No hoof ball everything short to bamba no pressure and too slow everything we did Saturday came from bamba it was tactically inept.
05 Oct 2015 13:22:35
funny last year out from back then down the lines byram stops then ball in side get to area lose it .same with have wingers but they not attacking defenders run for corners need to cut inside . also no though balls to split they defence . missing telling passes vision

Wonder how Redfearn and Thompson would have faired with this squad.
Sure the manager will change his playing system now. If he does and 442 succeeds he will be forgiven but branded selfish as he implemented a system comfortable for him but not the team. If he fails (which I predict) he will be regarded as selfish, a one trick pony and a failure.
For some reason our managers as of late are one trick ponies.
04 Oct 2015 21:18:25
Only time will tell - but I hope it does not take long either way. We need to turn this around very quickly ( not that I need to tell anyone). One thing is sure - I really want our club back on top - sick of my weekends being ruined!

Here you Peacock and could not agree more. One of the things I sense lacking is also the passion fight heart and desire to play for Leeds United. It's something someone like Ian Harte could bring back. The prob is not many people want to work for Cellino. Pearson loss is greater than fans realize. He would've acted as a necessary bridge and buffer for any ex-Leeds player fans are fond of.

I think more like more like one trick donkeys George!

I am sure we have a squad that could take us to the playoffs with only a few minor tweaks. Doukara and Wooten need to be replaced by two better players.
I have to put the poor results down to Uwe, the system are Playing offers no guidance nor instruction to the individual players, they seem to be interchanging position but with no clue why and generally without the ball and end result. Our squad now we have wingers, is crying out for a 4 4 2 formation.
A strong ball winner and ball player in the centre of the park with Antilucy playing off Wood. Our wingers are of a good standard for this league and the full backs are doing well. 4 4 2 will offer us more stability and an understanding between player. We could have a lot more points on the board by now. Stop being suborn Uwe and play the system that woks at this level.

had just been reading how 3 players got 100k for keeping us up last year. one couldn't play because of injury, one scored too many goals as was left out and the other went on strike, but here's a 100k
04 Oct 2015 09:30:30
If that's true then he must be offering a massive bonus for geting us promoted I would sign that contract
05 Oct 2015 09:18:25
it was to three from Italy say no more
03 Oct 2015 18:01:09
4 things learnt today
Botaka must start next game. We only looked threatening after he came on.
We are in need of a commanding CB, Bamba and Cooper are a decent pairing but you need more than decent to exude confidence.
If we give away the first goal then we do not posses the craft or guile in the team to pick open a packed defense.
Wood is not the 30 goal a season striker that we need. He was anonymous today (again) with barely a shot on goal of course it would help any striker to not be feeding on scraps.
PS I know there is no definitive answer but my vote is if Rosler was the man for the job then he still is. It is early days and if you can't get Mourinho then stick with what you have.

byram has been told he's got to fight for place but that's now right back only. talk about pushing a player out. got to say he's gone. club clearly made it's mind up. shame longest serving player.
03 Oct 2015 14:48:32
Totally agree. Moved to the wing to help the team at the time and this is how he is rewarded. The way our club treats players and staff has become dreadful. As you say, a shame.
02 Oct 2015 11:43:25
Not moaning as I am pleased with the way things are going at the moment, especially Cellinos comments about our squad players. I do think though that we lost two players in the summer who could be a benefit to us now. Del Fabro, imo, is a future international player and would be a good back up CB.
Montenegro could play in Dallas position and score goals. Happy with present squad with a good CB we will be better. Just think its a shame we did not give these guys more of a chance really.
They were on loan to buys so I can see why we did not buy as they never got in first team and agents would not loan for another year with no guarantees. Wish them the best, think Del boy will make it but Monty might get swallowed up in latin american football

Really hope Buckley, if fit enough, starts this weekend. He is just what we need. He has pace and is a direct runner who will take players on and get crosses in. I believe he can make the difference and we will climb the table.
Would also be tempted for Buckley to take the place of Dallas and keep Botaka in the side and have a front three with Wood playing his usual role through the middle.
We HAVE to be more brave at home. Mot.
02 Oct 2015 04:48:51
It's not about bravery. It's about the pace we lack for a 433. 442 way to go but by all means get Buckley in team.
02 Oct 2015 22:46:42
George mate there would be plenty of pace with Buckley and Botaka out wide and supporting Wood. And with Cook breaking forward as he can, that's a fair bit of pace attacking.
Only problem with 442 is being overrun in centre midfield as most sides seem to play 433 or 451. Crisp passing is more important than out and out pace. Remember Tony Daley and our own Darren Huckerby?
04 Oct 2015 16:23:24
Indeed I do recall those players. I actually thought Huckerby did ok for us as a sub in last 20 minutes but yes not enough skill at top level. We are still talking championship though. Pace is good because it frightens and tires the opposition, draws fouls and can result in goals which is what the game is about. I believe we need to get back to basics instead of plying Loser's 433. It's stopping the flair and slowing us down. Mowatt case in point. If you concede playing 442 oh well but we are shipping goals anyway with no attacking intent. Rather see a game decided in a more old fashioned way so I see what these players can really do.
