Re: Issa Diop

Have to disagree with the first point. I have heard the smartest manages in the league - Guardiola, Klopp, Tuchel - publicly complain their players are tired. Are they the smartest Managers in the league ? Their teams are where most would expect them to be. The team that is over achieving is David ...

Re: Vladimír Coufal signs

I’m not sure that’s very fair. If a club did their homework they’d know he assisted 7x from open play last season, the only full back to better that was TAA. For added context Creswell only assisted twice from open play in the league last season. Norwich let him cross mid week and we scored as a re...

Re: Vladimír Coufal signs

No, nothing to do with contract. Marvin Haglers famous statement about silk pyjamas is, imo, relevant to lots of sportsmen in lots of sports. :eh: I am referring to his playing standards. For example, their third goal today. Can't remember last season seeing him jog back when caught out of position...

Re: Issa Diop

Some stats. Leeds have not scored 3 goals away from home all season in the PL until today. Southanpton have only scored 3 goals away from home in the PL this season against us. Some stats. We scored two in each game- we lost by the odd goal . Mostly, what see. Imo, clear deterioration in certain de...

Re: Vladimír Coufal signs

Personally, I feel Coufals isdue is a bit more than just clubs studying him. He seems to play a far less disciplined role this season and is regularly caught out of position. He was caught out of position plenty of times last season. Plenty. I'd say his decline is 50% other teams studying and 50% h...

Re: Vladimír Coufal signs

If he played like this last season there would be no talk. Everyone would agree that he’s an ok RB and good for the price we paid. The issue is, is that he’s gone from almost cult hero status and performances to a very average right back. Coufal hasn’t lived up to the performances of last season. Y...

Re: Issa Diop

I would say so. TBF, my point was about deteriorating standards of Dawson and other defenders and why our manger can't put s top to it. I think its fair to say we have been struggling our last 10 - 12 games and, imo, a big part of that is individual defenders playing worse than they did 12 months a...

Re: Vladimír Coufal signs

Schemmel MKII....... but a worse second season than Svhemmel. Bog standard, lower PL, top half championship RB. Offering nothing to the team. Good at some things, less good at others, much like his competitor for the shirt, Johnson. Did you read Mike Hare's analysis of our squad recently published ...

That’s a rather extensive catalogue of presumption to extract from his rather straightforward statement isn’t it. He didn't say so,I don't agree with you either, but if it's your opinion, crack on, it's your opinion. :thup: However, we are 4th, we have a positive goal difference, and we are half a ...

Re: Issa Diop

Genuine question. Has anyone within the club said tiredness is an issue? I haven't heard it and our game schedule was expected before the season started. Interested to see if this is an issue stated by the manager or coaches. Smart managers don't present their players with ready made excuses. Smart...

Re: Issa Diop

The points tally of late is not great and I do believe in trends in all walks of life. Personally, I would stick with Dawson if I could change one CH as I feel Diop is a bigger problem. Options ard very limited due to injury but, being realistic, Ogbinnas future is very uncertain due to age and inj...

Re: Issa Diop

I've been a Dawson fans on the basis of punch for pound paid. That doesn't stop me seeing that he is really starting to struggle. . Yet the points tally I posted above suggests otherwise. Or are you suggesting we would be significantly higher than 4th if Dawson wasn't playing ? And if he wasn't pla...

Is Dawson getting worse as this season progresses? IMHO, yes.
And yet in the18 games he has played we have accrued 31 points.

How high have you set the bar ?

Re: Issa Diop

Marcelo did his homework. The Leeds game plan was to press everyone except Diop, meaning the ball always ended up with him, to ensure he had to make the forward pass, which was either the wrong one or poorly executed most of the time. His decision making has always been poor, imo he lacks aggression...
