    If I were Rodrigo, I'd be move than a little peeved at the lack of game time...

    Hi mate
    summerville has missed the last couple of 23 games for some reason? He went away with the Dutch U21s but a bit strange. For example we have seen plenty of Gelhardt and Drameh and even when Greenwood had a very nast ankle injury we saw him back very quickly. Young Jimmy I dont know. Is Jacko doing something with him in the background, is he struggling being away from home? We may see him this week with luck because I have seen him 3 times and 50% of his time has been brilliant, pacey skilfull but the rest was a bit lightweight? Remember this kid was playing first team football in Holland when we signed him

    I like the idea of Bamford and Rodrigo. Bamford holds it up, plays in Rodrigo, who then smashes a left-footer into the net. Repeat as often as possible:grin:

    This Koch injury could not come at a worse time, i cannot get my head around it that he has been carrying it since the Liverpool match, wtf is that all about, international duty??? dont get it.

    I also dont get it with our reserve/back up players, U23,s.........they age from 18/19 to 22/23 yrs of age and if they are not good enough get rid of them, why waste money on wages etc. other teams are using there young replacements..........even Lampard blooded that RB James, MF Mount and Abrahams last season and now they look comfortable in the PL, even the Norwegian PE teacher OGS has blooded players like Greenwood, Williams etc. all young kids, we dont, can anyone please explain to me why this does not happen.

    We need a proper LB, not Dallas or Allioski but someone who has pace and can read a game, not players who can run 13Km per game, in fact we looked the more tired team last weekend, but players who has fitness and energy in his tank when required.
    Harrison need to start performing and if i was Amigo i would let him know, shape up or ship out end of season, he has put one performance in and that was at Anfield which is not good enough.

    Did anyone watch the Spurs v Arsenal game......... Mourinho took the piss out of Arteta, Arsenal had 63% to Spurs 37% possession and Spurs were comfortable, that's a game plan that Morinho had put in place and drilled them to it, totally different to the week previous play........i think you all get what i am pointing at.

    I think we need to man up at set pieces and corners, as we were bullied last week and a few of our players froze or gave Chelsea too much respect, we also need to start putting a foot in as the pro's say and let teams know your around, Philips couldn't get near Kante, but Kante could him, and he nullified Philips out when he needed to, there was a vast difference in class i am afraid to admit, and i think we caught Liverpool out and Man City had a bunch of key players out injured when we played them so lets not read and dwell on them games too much.

    The acid test is coming over the festive period, i hope we can survive the onslaught of games and get some points on the board and get through it relatively injury free.

    Horses for courses. When we signed up to Bielsaball that's what you get. A team who run their socks off. If you can't do it then you're out. That's fair enough. We've done ok so far under Bielsa. Problem is we lack a bit of quality.

    As for the kids. It's a system that most clubs use. They have academy stocked full of talent but not too many make the grade. They usually get sold on at a profit which gets re-invested back in to the club. Our academy was cancelled by Cellino and is still getting built back up. Give it time.

    Phillips wasn't up against Kante. That was Klich's man. Kante had Klich in his pocket all game. Phillips was exposed because of this yet still made some great interceptions and tackles. Dallas and Klich were outclassed. They tried but just didn't have the quality around them to compete with a few billions worth of investment over the last 16 years we have been absent.

    Patience. Things are going in the right direction. Just need to stay up this season and collect the money to strengthen again.

    Wonder why Struijk was considered good enough to cover at the start of the season but isn’t now...

    Not kept up today but seems we have signed a couple of crocks for CB just where we need it most....

    Leeds will also be without fellow centre-back Diego Llorente for up to three weeks because of a muscle problem.

    Llorente, signed from Real Sociedad in September, only made his debut on Saturday as Koch's replacement because of a previous muscle issue.
