Tbf Swansea looked great in bits, broke up our play well, moved at pace and looked a threat up front all game.

Thought we also played some brilliant football even under some good pressing by Swansea. Hernandez’s goal was a beauty, such a confident flowing move.

Hopefully Bielsa is given the backing he wants in the transfer market to strengthen, but I can’t believe the turnaround in standards and play so early with basically the same squad as last year.

Sign of a good coach!

Impressed so far but the proof of the pudding will be when they play that type of football twice a week and in wet and heavy conditions.
Still a couple of players short of a top 6 for me.
The centre forward for Swansea who is a Leeds lad I believe went well.

Considering we lost Cooper in the warm up, that was a good result. Although there's definitely an added backbone to this team that wasn't there last year.

would have been a good point had we been at full strength.brilliant point with what we had out

Previous Leeds teams get hammered 3/4-1 when going 2-1 down away. Thought we showed alot of fight to get a point

Agreed. Deffo short still at the back and centre mid.

Deffo short at the cb position. Shame bielsa isn’t looking to bring anyone in there.

Very strange that and could be his undoing
Re: The ONLY LUFC Football Thread : Thu Aug 23, 2018 8:52 am  
I know. He’s repeatedly said he doesn’t need anyone there though. He prefers the versatility of ayling, berradi, Phillips and forshaw. It seems even more strange to me though as Cooper is hardly a top championship CB, he should be a back up really.
Re: The ONLY LUFC Football Thread : Thu Aug 23, 2018 10:49 am  
Agree with that about Cooper.
Would have been good to get Bartley back or even Williams who got sent off last night I know.
I see Villa are adding a couple of good signings to what is already a strong squad.
