Because of our inability to take our chances I'm not in a confident mood.
We fuck up far too many chances in front of goal. Row Z shots or straight at the Keeper aplenty.
Hope Gelhardt starts.

3 points please.

I'm feeling 3 points today. I have no basis for this mind.

Feeling confident for this.
We have too much speed and trickery for them lumbering ogres at the back

Struijk is fucking unlucky to be dropped for Firpo who has been shite in every match he has played to a greater or lesser extent

Prefer to keep Strujik at LB, but apart from that it's ok

As bad as I feel for Struijk, a Leeds team with a proper attacking full back is always going to be the optimum set up.

i'm more narked about dropping klich and gelhardt. even though pascal was excellent at left back we need to give firpo a chance to show what he can do. personally i don't think he's been that bad.

klich and gelhardt would make us more solid defensively and better at keeping the ball. brighton like to keep possession and that team aren't going to be as good at getting it back or holding on to it when we have it.

Looks good. I wonder how MB will solve the Rodrigo and James conundrum.

Come the fuck on, Leeds!

Bit surprised we aren't playing with a back 3 including Struijk, given that Brighton have Maupay and Trossard up front. Not sure that Firpo deserves as much criticism as he's getting, as he's hardly had chance to settle in. As I recall Alioski gave away penalties in both the Spurs and Brighton away games last season to give the home team the first goal.

agree about alioski. and gjianni no longer looked quick enough for a premier league full back. firpo's heritage means he suffers from inflated expectations. if we'd signed him from getafe i don't think he'd have received so much criticism.

doesn't trossard drop into more of a midfield role, hence the lack of 3 at the back? he's a bloody good player though.

Phillips will drop in again if we need a 3.

A Firpo sighting! Might have to look in on the game just to watch him as I've seen nothing so far - he's always been missing when I've had a stream/live.

Hope we keep Maupay quiet. Cooper will have to be on good behaviour not to let the dirty little sod get under his skin. Must be one of the worst shithousers since Bellamy.

Hope Rapha is fit.

I'm worried about the Brighton left wing back fella causing us problems. But if we can keep him quiet, and also Lamptey, ideally by having Harrison and Rapha keeping them super busy, then we can come away with all three points. Feeling 50/50

We have good pace in attack but the game will be won in midfield.

If we can win good ball and keep it well enough we have the pace and power to trouble their back line.

I'm not happy to see Gelhardt dropped to make way for Rodrigo.
We know what Rodrigo gives to the side, give young 'un a chance I say.

Bielsa out!
