Thread: SKYBET CHAMPIONSHIP

    I long for us to find someone like Romaine Sawyers.

    Not only is he quality and simplicity personified on the ball and in tight spaces. He's just constantly moving, directing traffic. Dictates the game even when he's not on the ball.

    My biggest issue with us (aside from a huge lack of space) is our poor movement. We're always doing things in 1/2's. Players don't drop in and out of spaces to then make space for themselves or others. Really frustrating. There's times when we're on the ball it looks like when we're under pressure, some don't actually want the ball, and hide behind opposition players to cut the pass off. Or times when Samba claims the ball and wants to distribute quickly, and players move away with their backs to him. Really grinds my gears.

    Sawyers is a quality player and one of the best in the division for me. A player like him would improve us no end.

    Birmingham are bang average, so another Leeds win there is quite likely.

    So that leaves West Brom, who are the best side in the league. Leeds will probably lose that one, but it'll hardly be a disaster for them as they will likely still be miles ahead of whoever is 3rd at that point.

    I don't see anyone catching them, and if someone does then it won't be us.
    Some fair points, you could be right. But to me it's not about each game in isolation, it's about playing all those sides in such a short space of time.

    All of those sides are competitive, and I think Leeds will feel it.

    I'd watch those 4 games, but then also watch the impact it has on Jan + Feb too.

    West Brom have looked a class above everyone else today. Great to watch too.

    Stand Firm And Strike Hard

    ...helped by Swansea playing like a Warburton/Cocu side and gifting them a goal.

    Their squad is ridiculous for this level.

    Edwards off the bench is a talent too.

    I hope we start giving Alex Mighten similar opportunity. Disappointed Johnson sees less time on the bench too.

    Given how poor our attacking options have been, I doubt Mighten or Johnson would have done any worse.

    West Brom’s movement off the ball is sublime.

    WBA are a class above.

    Only team we can't catch. If the suits up top have got their act together for a change in Jan, we'll have 'em.

    1st might not be there for the taking, but 2nd is. And our time is about due.

    Fair play to West Brom. They lost about 50 goals in Gayle, Rodriguez and Harvey Barnes leaving.
