Leeds could have a field day with us in our present form. Our midfield isnt energetic or mobile enough to cope with the numbers they get forward. 

 

We'd have to have a very very precise day in possession.

Grealish is a very good player but it was a very selfish display tonight in the final third that hurt his team

 

He did this last week as well when he had barkley free, and saka struggled to get a pass to

 

He needs to keep his game simple like he did against liverpool pass it move it, turn it.

Yep.  I hope with Little Wes in the team this habit of the CB’s playing side ways passes is banished from our game.  Leeds are a very decent Team.  At least this result will shut up all those pundits that were knocking out hand shandy’s as Villa went 4 games unbeaten.

Didn't Villa have a good start to the 2015-2016 season?  That ended well...

Nope. 

Won their first game. Lost 9 of their next 10. Bottom of the league after that 9th loss. Stayed there. Didn't move up at all and finished last lol

 

Won as many as we lost in that season.

It depends what you call a good start. They won their first game ....

 

.... but then didn't win another one until about game 20 or 21. They've already won more games than they did that season.

A draw would've been a preferable result tonight, choosing either is like being asked if you'd prefer to be poked in the left eye or the right. 

 

Details of PPV per club after the latest selection. At least if they're doing it they could make it more equal across the teams. Attempt to rip all fans off equally!

To be fair I think Leeds is the perfect fit for him as it didnt really work out anywhere else at the top level. Maybe he'd be ready for a move elsewhere but too early to tell.

 

He missed loads of chances with Leeds in the Championship but they were patient and then things fell into piece for him once he got some confidence.

 

Dont think we could have afforded that patience if we signed him and would have slated him before selling him to Cardiff or something.

Leeds are the prime example of how we played during our title win. 

Fast, counter attacking football.

Don't let the opposition get set.

High press.

Unbelievable energy.

Overloads in key areas.i

 

It's just a question of how long they can keep it up for as it requires an awful lot from an individual.

 

Great to watch though, well done Leeds United.

State of that. Not even an attempt at parity.

Is it more difficult to do it at a higher level ?  the lower number of games should compensate so I wouldn’t expect to see any drop off until feb/March based on previous seasons  - if at all ....

Leeds fan here.  In our first season under Bielsa, results did tail off in the last ten games but it wasn't due to fitness.  Running stats actually went up.  It was mental and the pressure told.  Last season, we were getting better and better before lockdown, winning our last 5.  We had already played more games by then than we will in the PL and closer together.  With more rest time, there will be zero drop off in energy levels this season, they will play in the last game the same as we played last night.

Imagine what Bielsa could do with better quality players? What he's achieving with some very average players is very impressive. Or would it be more difficult for him to get more technical, higher quality players to run themselves into the ground like this Leeds team do? A lot of their game plan seems to be based on being fitter than the opposition. As a result, they always seem to be able to get overloads all over the pitch.

Bielsa targets a certain type of individual to work with.  In Rodrigo's case, Spain's present number 9.  In Koch's case, German international and probably their best young CB.  Raphinia is also a truly outstanding talent who will start to feature more.  Other players like Costa, Cooper and Bamford are certainly not recognised top tier players.  They all share the same personal ethics and willingness to work hard and improve.  He then improves the average players to the point that - for example - Bamford outshines Spain's 9.

 

Certain players just wouldn't do what he wants.  Don't believe this teams lacks talent though, there is class throughout.

This makes me very jealous, would love to see us commit men forward like that.

 

maybe the wrong clip to use as It’s very easy to do when 3 nil up and the opposition have to blow their tactics out the window.
