I thought we would struggle against Preston at Deepdale last season and we did for a while. They went down to 10 men, Bamford scored - three points. Let's see if we can do three points again. I didn't expect it last year and I don't expect it on Tuesday. Hope Bamford can end his dry run and another three points. It will be difficult though.

Good side are Preston, with a great history.
Honestly think we will win.

Part of the problem up front is the balance between work rate and quality. Players are working flat out to play Bielsa's style, this in turn takes away from their quality levels. Being the split second ahead of the opposition to convert possession into goals is not there because they have not got the quality to go with the work rate. Top players are the ones that make this look easy. Top players have the time alongside the work rate. How many times in final third does the pass go astray or the cross gets blocked. This is the area that needs improving and is the missing piece in the jigsaw. Can Bielsa coach them to this level, or do we need to invest.

Invest surely we can see the league is there for the taking yet again. It's time to throw the dice.

Maybe your right Wex but who do we get in January?
It’s not easy getting in players ready to play instantly and in what positions are you looking to improve.

20 Oct 2019 17:17:09
Are you being serious Cork?
We have a striker who can't score, i cannot believe the refusal of countless fans that just pawn this off with, ah he holds the line well!
You speak of january, yet we had the leagues top scorer Vydra in the office start of last season, only to be told jog on you are too expensive . Then we had Angus tell us start of this season, we were the finished article and we didn't need strengthening meanwhile paddy still can't score.

Corky we need goals we create chance after chance we need to convert.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 17:33:36
That's the thing a manager or coach can only get players up to a certain level. If they have not got the quality you have to invest to bring it in. That is why my only problem has been the lack of investment in the last two windows. Two players in January for me, a creator and a striker. Two top loans for 4 to 5 months. Both a Mitrovic and a Saiz type.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 17:29:36
Spot on Wex and will Radz ever learn on this? . player recruitment is needed in quality proven players who can score and create goals. abd we miss Roofe and Saiz badly.

Do we go back to the old chestnut that is Dwight Gayle, who is allegedly on £40,000/ w

Jan 1st 2020 to May 2nd 2020.4 months.18 weeks

18 x 40,000 = £720,000

Loan Dwight Gayle for the 2nd half of the season, invest less than £1m and be guaranteed league winning goal return.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 18:31:43
Ok I’ll ask again. Who do you suggest we bring in?
And in what positions?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 18:37:24
And Gayle is guaranteed to score a bucket load?
You guys get on my tits. You know everything about nothing! . Ok we are missing chances but it’s not always the striker at fault. Second in the league and you still bitch and moan. Who else but fickle Leeds fans on here would do that.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 18:42:54
No guarantee Bielsa would play Gayle.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 18:52:25
Cork Says you who argued vociferously against me when I posted Mitrovic would finish the season with 30 league goals. A fit Gayle would be a fine addition.

Make cork right to an extent

To counter cork who else but Leeds fans have seen a record lead be thrown away? Twice?

But it ain’t the strikers fault

Belisa is know for making teams poor at scoring

He has done this at every club and national team he has been at if he can destroy Sanchez and Argentina’s best can we be shocked he has done it to Bamford? Look at his record it is a plague that follows him.

{Ed047's Note - best we get Eddie back to Arsenal sharpish then mate

Cork

I am really sorry I am getting on your t! its. That wasnt my intention at all. I was just suggesting a player who may be able to offer us somethings that we don't have. At this moment its goals but he also offers a winners mentality, experience which will help our youngster, and more competition in an area that we are weak on experience.

I have never called for Bamfords head, I think you just want to read in to posts what you think they are saying. I believe he is a good addition to Leeds, but I am also intelligent enough to understand that no football club stands still. Transfers in and out happen in 2 windows a year. So my suggestion of a particular addition does not seem as stupid as your outburst at your Leeds brethren having ideas that he wants to discuss.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 21:15:46
we scored 73 goals last season. Roofe's scored 15 from 28 matches. and we miss him. we need better proven goalscoring players better than Bamford etc and a richer chairman. not a new manager.

I will always take the three points. However, nothing has changed. Birmingham offered nothing in the first half going forward. We had possession, created chances and failed to convert them. They did better in the second half but we managed a goal and held on. On another day we could have lost this one or drawn. The risk of buying players who have dropped down the pecking order at their club is always there. Middleborough and Wolves wanted to off load Bamford and Costa. It's clear to see why. Bamford was the biggest risk. He wasn't coping in the Championship. At least Costa was in the Premiership. At the moment Costa is performing worse than Harrison (who incidentally had a better game yesterday) . Beradi played well and Phillips scored. We are a decent teambut we haven't the strikers on the pitch to convert enough chances. Until that is sorted out our results will be inconsistent.

Our defence can be shaky at times and we struggle when we have injuries in this department, but the inclusion of white has helped ease the loss of pontus. (I think we have the best defensive record in the division at the moment) . But our major problem is scoring goals, the midfield has chipped in but even that is down from last season. Personally I don't think Bamford is an out and out striker, he's he holds up play well but his finishing is poor. Eddie is more the fox in the box type but needs the right service. Not really sure what the answer is but do feel beilsa has to work out another game plan to utilise both these type of players, sticking with the same formation time and time again will change nothing, Bamford will not score enough to fire us forward i fear.

brough did not want to sell bamford they rated him very highly they sold him as he had a pre season row with pulis. they still hold him in high regards. bamford ain't that bad and is doing ok. he is not a number 9 he is a false nine his game is not just scoring goals it is about holiding up play running lines and occuping defenders

just like frimono the difference with frimono is his wingers are firing leeds are not

as for costa like with douglas but have class just not being used well

i think it comes down to game play, set up and tactics. change this and get more out of all our players.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 13:54:47
We fell short last season and to be honest doesn't look like we have really strengthened the squad sufficiently enough to push on. We all hope we can get up this season but at present we are not looking anything special.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 14:40:05
We bought as a striker. Not midfielder. Don’t care how hard he works. If Boro rate him. Give him back.
He is useless. Worst player in the team.
It’s like a goalie not being able to catch a ball. He can’t score.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 15:14:54
Don’t think our squad is that bad certainly one of the strongest in the league apart form cb which is lacking in depth

Trouble is we have a good championship squad trying to play champs league football

We need a change of system and style not new players

Said it a million times good managers get best from squad look at what bowyer is getting from league 1 squad in championship and what Wilde is getting from championship squad in prem

Mb is making a top championship squad look average when a better manager would make them look prem

Mb play the hand you got not the hand you wish you had.

I don't believe we have the best squad in the division but take the point that we are not utilising our resources effectively. The QPR manager has always used a 4-2-3-1 system but this season have gone against his principles as he has recognised that Hugil and Wells play better as a pair.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 17:23:47
Normally agree with you bermo, but disagree this time
Paddy is our main striker simple as that, he can't score goals regularly simple as that,
Whether he is a no9 or not he is the one tasked with getting us up.
Surely the man who is getting millions to get us promoted should know that if paddy can't score then he should have a replacement lined up, we are way too inconsistent.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 18:59:43
Bermo I’ll bet you whatever amount you like. Leeds will finish above charlton.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 20:17:09
Worst player in the team.? I’ll stop laughing later, maybe, or maybe not.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2019 10:05:38
yes 1-0 is 1-0 and a win . got away with it in last 15mins . seams like teams are happy to sit back hold on then go for it at end of game . we need to be 2-0 up while on top then it would be over . hard game tuesday and this time 1-0 would be good result.

A win is a win i guess and we did battle for it. Good job we had KP White and Berardi out there as was not impressed with rest of midfield performance. Same faces under performing. Costa still not up to speed pity he was not introduced at beginning of season. Saying that would be happy taking 1-0 wins every game. Eddie never got a decent ball played into him second half.
Second in the table though and away games coming up against attacking teams.
I remember a wise man called BIGE saying some moons ago that a team called Preston just promoted would do well in the Championship and could see them in top six in a season or two. Every one to a man said he was talking rubbish and they would be going straight back down. Look at them now. Now as a wiser and older Bielsasbud all i can say is that's Oracling.
