    Arsenal 1 Leeds United B 2

    Leeds United never got out of its gear in the first half until the introduction of B team in the second. Suddenly Leeds United burst to life. Tyler showed quality with his involvement in Leeds goal and his linked up play opened up Rafinha, Shackleton and Costa as attacking threat.

    Looking forward to the new surface at Elland Road versus Everton.

    Aspect not commonly seen in Newcastle vs Leeds United. Bielsa ditched his loyalty programme, choosing to field a relatively strong team instead while leaving behind some mainstay. Leeds United gallant display of defense was also an uncommon sight. They dogged repelled a 2nd half Newcastle's...

    Financial Meltdown

    Leeds United could see a financial meltdown similar to its predecessor, Peter Risdale if they get relegated. As it is, they do offer some good value with the money its American investor pumped into the club. But their business model would be unsustainable both on and off the field, when things...

    Leaks United

    The passes were atrocious. The guilty party were Meslier, Ayling, Klitch and Alioski whose misplaced passes frequently put Leeds under the cosh that resulted in the 3 Tottenham goals.. Leeds seem divided in the center and there were constant spat among them. There appeared to be 2 Leeds teams on...

    Biels, the model Manager

    Bielsa may be a model manager to many, but has inadvertently turned model answer, other teams used to map him out to beat him. Leeds has much resemblance to the Harlem Globetrotters that captured the imagination and adulation of the sports fraternity, but probably won't win many NBAs. He used...

    Leeds relegation scrap

    If Leeds could not put rubber on the road at home soon, then the reality of relegation battle could sink in soon. West Ham showed they could play Leeds whole day and still fashion a leisurely win. Leeds were naive in unlocking defences and badly missing creative maestro Hernandez. Grudge bearing...

    Leeds very ordinary.

    Leeds look like world beater against Sheff Utd, Fullham & Villa. Good against Liverpool. But very, very ordinary when playing the likes of Man City, Wolves and Leicester who could device quick counter attack against their high pressing game. Teams playing them next would have it all figured out.

    Liverpool 4 Leeds United 3

    Good result it seems. Any neutral would have taken it before the match. Leeds were beaten by two soft penalties and goals from set pieces. Given that Leeds were playing with a makeshift defense, and at times in sixes, they can only get better. But the frailty in defending from set pieces needs...

    Don't You Know, Pump It Up!

    Congrats, Leeds United is back to the Premier League, where it truly belongs. It was a long wait but Leeds United got there somehow. Epic. Nail It. Absolutely Magic.

    Setting up stalls

    Expect Stoke, Barnsley and Charlton to take the cue from Luton and set up stalls while facing Leeds United. Leeds would do well not to expect them to come out into the open play. They won't. They will remain compact infront of their goal and Bielsa must find a solution around the wall.

    Leeds United vs Fullham

    It was a tale of two halves and brilliant Bielsa got his tactics spot on. The plan was for Leeds to sit back and soaked up everything Fullham could conjure and threw at them in the first half. How apt, Leeds are doing unto others what others have been doing unto them. Cardiff picked their...

    Burning Leeds Matter

    It could so easily have been game set and match, if Leeds were to beat Cardiff and Fulham. But Leeds put everything into a tailspin by losing to Cardiff, and most likely to Fullham as well. Leeds need several games to get up to speed with their high tempo game. By that time they would have...

    Wily AR angling for QSI minority stake, to help Leeds United push for EPL and then sell the entire cash cow to QSI for exponentially more once they arrived at the promised land. Think QSI is daft?

    Leeds United 2 QPR 0

    Well deserved but could have had more. Resumption of normal services to the supply lines except for the floodgates. Roberts is the difference. Dallas, Ayling, White and Cooper outstanding. Casillas oozes confidence now and Philips the lynchpin. And Leeds look quality. Just need to add goals.

    Sheff Wed 0 Leeds United 0

    Taking away the time Sheff Wed hit the woodwork, its point gain. Leeds now sits deeper and allow teams to run at them and in the process created less chances. The services in the final third dried up and Nketiah were left fending for himself by creating his own chances and even mopping up in...

    Brentford 1 Leeds United 1

    Not a particularly easy place to go to. But Leeds United managed to somehow eked out only a draw after some dominant display. And Bielsa needs to sort out Bamford situation quickly. Sooner he realised that product counts more than performance, the better.

    Leeds United vs Birmingham

    Leeds needs to maintain their challenge at the top and get some kind of momentum going, or risk dropping out of the play off zone into mid table.

    Millwall 2 Leeds United 1

    Baetano Berardi does not deserve a red and Millwall do not deserve a penalty after he was adjudged to have fouled Tom Bradshaw in the box and was sent off. Replays suggest it was a very harsh call and Bradshaw should have had a yellow for simulation. Leeds could have won, had Bielsa changed...
