    Yeah I’m upset. I would watch a 38 episode season (one for each match) but will watch those two episodes happily. As I had mentioned before, I don’t think they were doing it at the beginning of the season but once they realized they were close to promotion the cameras showed up again so I don’t think they had as much content to make it a longer season.

    Good win in the bottom league. Positives for sure in the offensive movement.

    Obviously the defense was poor for moments. Continuity mistakes were there multiple times. Meslier has to come for that ball on the Mitrovic header.

    Will need investment still. Can only hope the Pablo injury is not long term.

    Not convinced with Koch. Penalty was soft but no need to go down. Meslier totally botched the header by Mitrovic. Costa has been impressive and Phillips is proving why he was called up. Also Cooper being back was huge. I thought Rodrigo played well at that spot but spent himself running so much.

    Need midfield depth for sure. Klich has great moments and then messes up easy passes. Could use somebody like De Paul.

    This is who we need bossing the midfield.

    Rumors in Chilean press that Bielsa is now going after Erick Pulgar who plays at Fiorentina. He’s more of a CDM than a box to box but I’ve been very impressed with his progression. Saw that 10m is the asking number.

    I am okay with the Josko news. I think Strujk can put in a shift.

    Want De Paul. Apparently linked with Atalanta MF Malinovskyi. Really I think we are just being used by agents and are the rumors with everyone.

    I didn’t know that the fans were not aware players were at Elland Road watching the team be promoted. It was meant to be. I kept thinking “this is not safe” given COVID but at the same time people have waited 16 years for this and there was no way it was going to be stopped.

    Also Kalvin Phillips grandma better get something named after her. She was THE reason Kalvin didn’t leave after last year. She pretty much said I ain’t leaving Leeds.

    Good info on Llorente in this article:

    This is Bielsa at his best but it will make for some tense moments this season when we have a lead:

    So we spent 30m euros and got Koch and Llorente. White would have been more than that but Brighton were never letting go.

    Time to focus on midfield now. Udinese still want 35m for De Paul, I’m thinking we need to look elsewhere for that kind of money.

    Seems like a signing most watchers of La Liga think is good business for Sociedad. Guessing he is cover for Koch.

    Looking at the schedule I wanted 4 points from the first 4 and here were are at 6 after 3.

    Bamford shutting the doubters (including myself) down is an amazing development and hope it continues. So impressed with Dallas and Harrison in today’s match. Meslier with a save worth a goal too. Buzzing.

    Koch looked immense today. Meslier was outstanding.

    I think Phillips needs to get back to linking play better as we struggled the first half for periods. Part of that was Roberts looked like ass out there.

    Liked what Rodrigo brought to the game today. Poveda had some moments but I think he needs to move the ball some more. Bit of a black hole at times.

    Over the moon with the result.

    Yes forgot to mention how well Koch played today. Him and Cooper were very solid. Agree 100% on Phillips. He was too far back and we need him to push up more.

    #Bayern Munich can you tell me about him, not a name I’m too familiar with?

    Interesting considering we are linked to everyone. Last I saw it was a winger who plays in the Dutch league, Cantwell today, and the Dutch CM.

    French international. Head case. Legitimate world class potential if he ever gets his head out of his ass.

    Only way I see him getting sold is if there’s a buyback option. We’re thin af as a squad.

    Curious what the buyback is but will assume it is not insignificant. Wonder if this will conclude the business because apparently we are trying to go back to the Daniel James well. Either way I am happy with this window considering Brighton put a 100% no sale on Ben White.

    I read 50-60 with the wording being large. But who cares because if Bayern want to buy him back it means a lot went right

    Well that was a fun match. We gave to much respect this first 20 and then settled in. Rodrigo and Poveda looked great coming on.

    Transfer business needs to be done to get another CM. When Klich went off we lost a lot of what we gained.
