They're playing some really lovely stuff, credit where it's due.

A negative in Leeds' performance is the number of time Alioski has been caught offside, in good positions when he could clearly see along the line.

Yeah, their overall play is typical Bielsa, total football, which is for what he is renowned, They've been terrific to watch, but need a cutting edge. They've done everything, but score

I would absolutely love Bielsa here. Not sure he would last long; he isn’t known for being a patient man when it comes to flexibility in his football philosophy.

An enjoyable team to watch.

They remind me of Arsenal about 10 years ago!

They needed to score in that half though. I think Arsenal will make them pay and still win this.

Leeds are everything we are not,
To think some people would be happy with a midfield consisting of noble, snodgrass and joe Allen...
Wouldnt last 15 minutes.

Lacazette should have done better, putting his laces through it rather than a delicate sidefoot placement straight at the keeper.

Looks like arsenal are not as tired as they were in the 1st half
I think we are watching a game now that will have at least 4 goals in the 2nd half
Full on attack
Fantastic game for the neutral

Stoke knocked Leeds out of the League Cup after a 2-2 draw at Elland Road.

Joe Allen didn't play mind, but still :wink:

If Bielsa wasn't a football manager, he would make a cracking Bond villain. :)


Was just checking our recent record v Leeds United, just 2 wins versus them in our last 28 meetings.

So it's OK to kick your opponent now is it?

Sadly, for all their lovely approach play, Leeds lack a cutting edge and should've scored when they were on top. When they didnt, it always had the look the would pay for it. Arsenal will probably be playing at Wembley in May now, unless they meet a Man City or somebody along the way, coz I cant see Leeds getting back into this now

Don't think Danny Murphy will be giving Granny Shagger the Man of the match award.
