    But apparently not much of one outside of youtube or wherever it is you find your video selections.

    Anyway thank you for responding even if you haven't addressed my queries as to your earlier post.

    So you whilst you quite rightly suggest things could get worse if we change you deny things could improve if we try?

    I responded to your last comments, don't be greedy.

    I'd like to know what your query was, I didn't see a query, I just saw a statement.

    Most certainly not as the changes posters have suggested may indeed improve the team.

    I'm just not willing to risk what we have now, which is a team which has dominated every game so far this season for a possibility.

    The clues are the ? at the end of sentences.

    If that wasn't enough for you then you could also have worked it out from the way the sentences were constructed;

    Can you tell me...

    Am I right in thinking...

    If you don't wish to answer it's absolutely fine, but please don't make out my questions were statements as clearly they were not.

    Evening all, just got in and missed the match
    Having read all the comments it sounds like same old same old, however we are still top so no problem for me as long as we maintain that position.
    PS
    Bet Swansea fans are spitting blood as well

    I thought Leeds today looked a five or six goal better team than Derby. The first half in particular was as dominant a performance as I've seen for a long time. Unfortunately if you don't take your chances you are vunerable and we dropped points to a great strike.

    Teams know how Bielsa sets his team up and will be doing everything they can to counter him.
    Maybe they're targeting Pablo so he can't pull the strings which is why he seems to be having poor games. I don't know but, as I said before, I just trust Bielsa. We're not converting the chances but would we create them with different personnel?
    At least we're still creating the chances.
    Every game is going to be a battle and it's going to be a rocky road.
    I think the best team we've played so far has been Barnsley, who should have got something out of the game today against Florist, and they're staring at relegation.
    If we can miss so many chances and still be top I'll take it :)

    Both he and Arsenal get a bonus for goals scored. Who knows but maybe if he starts the games too they get even more? He's already costing us a fortune but I wonder if that will have an impact?

    Isn't there also a clause which means if we don't play him then we have to pay Arsenal a "fine"?

    So if what you say is true, and it does have an impact on who we can or cannot pick, then why would we agree to that deal?

    I'd love to play for Bielsa, his loyalty to his players is both stubborn and admirable in equal measures. I bet the players love him. Well, apart from Eddie! <laugh>

    Positives

    Our first-half performance, some lovely football.
    We battered them.
    Kalvin Phillips a masterclass once again
    Ben White so calm & cool at the back, hard to believe he has only played at League 1&2 level
    Stuart Dallas, where have these performances come from, SD is like a new quality signing.
    We didn't lose the game
    We're still top of the league
    Kalvin having a word with a tw*t at the bottom of the kop who was having a go at him. (of all our players)

    Negatives

    Final 30 minutes of the 2nd half.
    How we can contrive to draw a game we should have won easily is beyond comprehension.
    Lost total control, cohesion & rhythm of our play, even then Derby were poor.
    Missed chances.
    Bamford's feeble lob.
    Klich's penalty.
    Poor crossing
    We got worse after the substitutions.
    Douglas on for Pablo, bizarre!
    Nketiah should be getting more than ten minutes.

    I could not have put it better myself. Jammy would tell you the same.

    I dont he has serious flaws as a coach. He is not a god to me and puts players out of position.

    .... and everyone else who isn’t picked! Like with most managers.

    My understanding is the love isn’t as widespread as fans might think. Respect? Sure.

    White does look a class act... needs to watch the hands on shirts at corners though.

    After death and taxes the surest thing in life is the polar extremes in the match reports of you and LL regarding the performance of KP. :biggrin:

    Morning all. I bet there aren't many supporters of table topping teams who think their coach has serious flaws.

    Douglas on for Pablo, was so Alioski could go left wing and switch Costa to pablo's position on the right, where he did play a bit better than when on the left.

    It’s some comfort I guess but we’re now only one point clear of 3rd and three ahead of 7th. Not putting teams away that we dominate at home is proving costly.
