Location: Nottingham. 800 years ago outlaws stole from the rich. Little has changed here

A competitive but not very entertaining game. That's fine really. Showed we have a grittier side and have adapted how we play depending on who we have available and who we are playing. Lots of potential

Good result but very poor standard from both sides.
Really pleasing that we learn from a defeat most of the time.
Not many teams have done the double over us and no idea how a poor Wolves side managed it.
My usual suspects Costa and Harrison both very poor yet again.
With Raphina and a decent LB allowing either Alioski or Poveda to play on the wing I wouldn`t pick either of those 2.
Either that or we sign another Raphina :BOW:
Phillips MoM for me.


We were poor going forward, very disjointed. I was shot down by a mate of mine saying we are playing Man Utd so need to get real but I still stand by it. We were much better against Liverpool going forward. Thought Man U were there for the taking tbh. They have very good left and right backs, especially defensively. Had Costa and Harrison in their pockets. Wan Bisaka is a defensive machine.

Thought Roberts and Dallas were off colour. Robert’s not quite good enough to unpick that calibre of defence. Bamford barely had a sniff. Ayling was dreadful in possession gave it away numerous times.

It was a cracking point though don’t get me wrong

In games against the best teams, the difference in technical ability becomes obvious, we were poor going forward, but they were also pretty hard to breakdown. Although, we did seem to be very wary about getting caught on the counter and didn't move the ball as quickly as we normally do, but after getting smashed last time we played them.

We have become rock solid defensively though, Llorente is world class and would get into most PL teams, as would KP. Alioski and Ayling were also excellent defensively.

We didn't look like scoring, could still be playing now and I doubt we'd have it in the net. But these games happen, and they happened in the championship when we were dominating. What's pleasing is that so many key players were off form, but we still drew with the team heading for second. And again, a top team hardly created any chances against us. I know commentators can be lazy, and they keep talking about our goals against. But in 17 games since the turn of the year we've conceded 18. And how many from set pieces. This team has learnt as theyve gone on and set a strong base for next year.

Yep agree completely Jack. I think Koch and Struijk will be superb long term partners for Llorente. Reminds me a bit of Rio Ferdinand does Llorente. A very good set of 3 centre backs there for Leeds with the ever reliable Cooper in the mix.

I'd be surprised if we see Koch and Llorente play together at CH, Bielsa likes a left footer and a right footer at centre back, so I actually think Koch may struggle to get back in the team.

Agree with that and for me it was crying out for Hernandez to come on instead of Klich.
A bloke I work with a MU fan says Leeds seemed hell bent on not conceding and played for the draw which I said was very unlike Leeds but he probably has a point just like Leeds got on Sunday :lol:

Think we still had the ghosts of 6 - 2 in the minds of all tbh that’s why Bielsa made sure of picking something up from the game.

Looks like Raphina will be missing against Brighton with Rodrigo likely to be in the squad.
Just shows how Jesus was fit to play after Cooper caught him before being sent off.
Yet Raphina has missed 3 games after he was fouled with the City player only getting a yellow.
Thinking back did he get a yellow/
I also see Tammy Abraham could be available for 40 million.
Would be a good signing at nearer 30m ..

Chelsea want £40m for Abraham, as do Brentford for Toney. We'll concentrate European markets as the value for money, and wages will be far lower
