Typical championship result this year, No one’s good enough to pull away. Keep to our plan and we’ll be close.

Still got the (joint) best goal difference in the division thanks to Pablo.

Those on international duty will be glad they're not spending the next 2 weeks at TA.

I understand the gamble but taking Douglas off seemed an odd one, not as if Alioski was having a great game.

Fair point.

Shame is we do have to rely on our players, and tonight, they did it wrong.
I like it. What is it?

Yes headshake here when they took him off. Very strange as there were a lot of players having a worse game than him.

All in, I'm fairly philosophical about that. A useful reminder Bielsa is working wonders but it's still the squad we had last season (Douglas aside).

No reason to panic. It's not exactly a message to everyone else of how to play against us, not many have that quality. Matty Phillips is a very good player at this level and Gayle is a quality striker.

Yeah I think you’re right. We went in there massively aggressive and they picked us off every chance they got

I'm looking at the Dallas thing with new eyes.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Yep particularly as the loan players haven't really had an impact bar Harrison briefly.

Hopefully there are funds in January.

He's been at best bang average since he arrived. Just a runner nothing more.

Yep, we werent great and that allowed them to grow.
One thing that really annoyed me was whilst explaining to the Mrs that R-K should have been booked for 'exaggerating' the challenge in the box the first time, he scores. Then later for an arguably lesser dive gets booked so should have been off. Might not have made a difference but....

The most worrying thing about that,is the amount other teams will learn from it.

This could be the best break we've ever had,i hope he can swallow pride.

No way we're blaming that defeat on BPF, it was a team thing

A result that looks like one team had spent the best part of the last 15 years in the Premier league and the other team hadn’t.

Some interesting things to discuss today

It seems astonishing we can lose 4-1 with 72% possession.

I don't think MattKlicketyClick66 has played very well since Forshaw came back

Is Douglas carrying an injury? Why else do that?

And most concerning of all, why are we trying to penetrate a tough hard working big bastard team like them without our most talented player. Samu Saiz would've been the key today

Our goalkeeper. He doesn't seem to concentrate for 90 despite being talented.

The only positive from tonight is that BPF should have played his last game in a Leeds shirt.

harsh and stupid does as harsh and stupid is.

I think we have identified opportunities for Dallas and the goalie to have a couple of games sit and think about things. Have a look at Blackman and maybe young Vernon Anita. Where did we put him? Who had him last? Come on own up ..
The only thing we knew for sure about Henry Porter was that his name wasn't Henry Porter.

Nope, he never has nor ever will be good enough for a champ team chasing promotion.

Bielsa has been very loyal so far possibly too loyal. Don't see that changing.

Particularly when the back up is a loan player with a similar level of experience.
