Poor performance, no creativity and then add alioski to the mix, woeful and a liability, unsure why beilsa sticks with him.
Think we all on same page about LB a must as well as another 3-4 in for me.
We always miss Phillips, not only defensively but his forward passes, Koch ok In breaking down but not the range of passing.
Agree we (ME) , big clear out needed, cassila, alioski, forshaw, klich, Roberts, Pablo, Rodrigo too.
Must be the financial thing to not try younger crop and don't think we will see geharrt, Greenwood etc.
I have not seen De Paul in action, what type of player is he?

King Pablo is 37,in the twilight of his career, a shining beacon and Leeds United legend, record 3 times player of the season

Without him and his goals and assists Leeds would still be playing in tne Championship ( 42 goals / assists in previous 2 seasons)
He deserves to be cherished and appreciated, not placed by some posters under ' getrid" or ' clear out'

Completely agree BV. We owe Pablo the respect of letting him choose what he does with the rest of his career. Unfortunately his legs can’t hack the PL Bielsa style anymore. If he wants to move back to the Spanish team he part owns, let him. If he wants to stay here and learn his trade as a coach, let him. If he wants to be a squad player and help the younger kids develop, let him. The only certainty in my mind, is that he should lead the team out as captain against West Brom when the fans come back. He should not play the entire 90 so he can get the massive send off from 10000 fans that he richly deserves (for that Swansea goal alone! )

Shipping all these players out is easier said than done
Replacing them is even harder, 7 new players would cost over 100 mill
Think Rod will come good.
Hope Pablo takes a coaching role.
Klich squad player.

Think you're right Richie however 7? players we are looking at 150-200 mill. For me I would rather get 3-4 players and spend 100mill ensuring they are top quality and can obviously enhance the team.

I think most people agree that we desperately need a LB and a creative/ box to box Centre Mid. Then priority 2 would (for me) be a winger. A Raph clone if you like, to spread fear on to the other side of the pitch. No. 3 is a prolific striker. I like BamBam but his conversion rate is way to low. If he had converted more of the chances the rest of the team had given him we may even be looking at Europe this year?

I am very interested to see how Forshaw shapes up in his rehabilitation. Prior to his injury he looked promising, albeit in the Championship, so if he does prove himself he could save us a few bob (squad player at the worse) altho the "never quite the same tag" may well have to be overcome.

Superbly said Ali to which I completely concur.

Ali, I absolutely agree with ypu regarding Henandez. The guy is a Leeds legend. The Strachan for the Millennial generation. He is the player that created the forward momentum.

As for Foreshaw, I love how LUFC have stood by him during all he has had to endure. In my simplistic world he signs a new one year contract with us having the ability to increase it to two if we want. Then he gets loaned out for the first half of next season to a Championship side in which he plays consistently. We can then see if he has got back to a decent level. Second half of the season he comes back to us and we see if he can be good for us. The beauty with Foreshaw prior to the injuries is he wasn't reliant on pace and his brain wasn't injured at any time. He out thought most Championship players.

It’s not in any way a case of sticking Pablo on any list, it’s just a fact of life that at his age he doesn’t offer much anymore! I agree he has been one of a few great players in recent seasons but a legend? Not quite but he has been great for the club. He will not stay here beyond this season and that is quite common knowledge, his wife and sons still live in Spain and he will return to the club he started at as I believe is his desire and he deserves the opportunity to do that and go finish his playing career where it started. We all have our own feelings on who we could sign and who we feel has served their purpose.

Just out of interest, the word legend! I’m not taking anything away from Pablo I love him and all he’s done for us. However a Legend for helping gain promotion from the 2nd tier to the top tier!
Would you consider Rio or Smith Legends for achieving us 3rd best side in the entire of European football then?
You may agree you may get all angry and upset but players come and go. Billy Bremner is a legend, Peter Lorimer is a legend, Don Revie is a legend Pablo has been brilliant for us but he’s nowhere near the same status as those players/ manager absolutely nowhere near that level.

Me of course Legends such as the greats of the Revie team are on a higher level

But for me the two main catalysts for promotion ( finally after 16 years ) were Bielsa and Pablo ; without either promotion would not have happened.

Forever grateful and both forever Leeds United Legends 💜💜 for me.

BV I’m in agreement that this crop are to be held in extremely high regard. I just feel the legend status gets banded around a lot.
We all love the boys and kick every ball with them.
One things for sure mate, it’s gunna be an exciting summer window.
We are in a pretty difficult position in my opinion, we need quality and to let go those who probably won’t add much other than a squad number, but we already have a thin squad I think we sign 5 (permanently) + 2 loans . I’d actually consider letting Rodrigo go, I like him but it hasn’t really happened for him and I don’t think at his age we can afford another season like that from him so if we can recoupe most of what we spent and reinvest in someone younger then I’d probably take that.
