    So much to like about Alioski but he isnít a good left back and fills in admirably but he isnít good enough there if we want to improve the team - it is one of the most obvious weak spots. Sometimes he has awesome games, sometimes he has shockers but always if the game is tight I worry when his flank is attacked.

    Will miss him when he goes but it is probably best for him and the club and we can just remember the good moments he gave us - such as the goal against Reading at the end of the game or winding up Pepe.

    He is a bit like Andy Hughes for me - great personality and trier but not really able to keep up as the club progressed.

    To bring conversation back to the topic of Leeds season:
    Need to mention that mistakes when passing out of the back have cost us dearly. Especially against Manure, Arsenal and Leicester. All 3 teams pressed us and mistakes were made.
    Also we conceded far too many goals from corners. Highest in the league.
    I think we have improved in both departments as the season progressed, but there are still some severe buttock clenching moments in almost every game.

    Does look like this time it is true. Wilfried Zaha wants to leave in the summer. Good for Leeds? He is a right footed left side forward who will be a great complement to Raphinha on the other wing. Very expensive though. Not sure he will fit in with Bielsa's strict and tough training regimen. Also, not sure he wants to move North.

    No thankyou, for all the reasons you give. Watched him a few times this season, and he poaches, (very well I'll give you), he doesn't track back, and too often appears to lose interest if the game isn't going Palaces way.
