    So, send we have a playmaker and a scorer (maybe) but they dont seem to be compatible according to our coach?

    What do folks think of playing both?

    Bamford gets so much crap on here but the guy runs hes guts off and by the time he gets a chance he's energy lvls are so low he misses.
    Why not play eddie bamf costa up front and see how we go as i believe they would run rings around defences.
    But what does the magician do takes of Bamf and leaves the champion Harrison on.
    The good thing is we won for a CHANGE even though they played better sure beats been on top and loosing.
    Anyway Bielsa once again has let me down and i cant work him out at all.
    Ohh hold on this is amazing we won a game at our ground this is more than amazing.

    Play both, gives us twice the possibility of scoring, let's face it, we need it.

    As I commented recently, they have a happy knack of grabbing wins at the death of games. And have done it again today ! That is the difference in taking the limited opportunities when they arise...where we are falling short. We are creating more than them, but not converting same.

    Makes you think just how far ahead of the rest of the league we would be with a 20 goals a season forward.

    If ever it was an option this season, would send Eddie back and bring in Gayle.

    If we could just score goals we'd absolutely walk this league. As far as I'm concerned we should be on all wins so far barring the loss to Charlton, every other game we've dominated, spurned easy chances and let them back in when they shouldn't have had a sniff.

    I do think we've missed Pablo as well, quite often he'd chip in with a goal from outside box which we haven't had.

    Agree. He provides that extra impetus when we go forward. And shows a bit of trickery to score out of the blue occasionally.

    Why do we think Bamford was took off? Bielsa fed up with him?

    Hopefully, I so much want him to succeed, but how much time, and how many points because of it we drop, before enough is enough.

    There was a great expected goals v actual goals chart produced a couple of weeks ago most clubs and reasonably close between all and then championship clubs but with Leeds being a massive outlier and having a huge gulf between the two.

    Bielsa being a stat nerd is probably relying upon ‘regression to the mean’ so that over a long enough period the gap should close between the two figures and we will have a higher AG meaning we walk the league.

    So who knows why Eddie got a half. I would actually like both to play which with the injuries we have at present it makes sense some sense.

    The lack of finishing seems to have spread to the other whole squad though as Costa, Dallas and Alioski all failed to convert reasonably good chances.

    One day when the statistical gods align with the real world someone is going to get a pasting.

    KP’s post match interview was funny when he said maybe he needed to teach Eddie and PB how to shoot.

    MB just confirmed its the same team to play Preston that started against Brum..personally I would have rested Bamford and started Nketiah for this one.

    I thought he had given up the policy of announcing the team well beforehand?

    Not that it really matters anyway beacause, unless Hell Freezes over, then MB's team will be ..............

    Drum Roll

    the same as last week's.

    And the week before that etc etc.
