Unlucky twice Saints but both the correct decision. Tella should have been shown at least a yellow.

Yep - I missed the first half hour or so, but it seems Saints are matching Leeds for a 'pushing' style... Biels usually waits until about 30 to go before making any changes, but I am wondering if he might at half time. Llorente certainly looks very rusty....

Leeds have blown away all my expectations, some excellent football.

I had hoped for this, in fairness. I worried that the Bielsa hype might be a bit over-exaggerated, but it isn't. What pleases me most is the way he has us play with the same ethos no matter if we're a goal down or a goal up, and I think other fans are enjoying the viewing!

Also, much kudos to Radrizziani as the new owner and the management now for giving him what he needs... I hope he stays.

The pitch Spurs sold us, though, is a crock of shit!

No, it was a dive and i hate to see it from my team

Poor finishing is what cost us last night. We should've been 2 up after 15 mins. Vestegaard free header off JWPs free kick, and then Tella 1 on 1 with the keeper after a nice run.

Lack of squad depth is killing us. Things don't go our way, heads drop, players absolutely knackered in the second half, nothing on the bench to improve the team. Unfortunately we had to take out a loan with a mental interest rate to keep us going due to covid, so there was (rightly) no investment in Jan.

So we can't even have deputy Hendo in our line up:

Klopp’s centre-back options for Sunday’s visit to Sheffield United include the new signings Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies, plus Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams
Players make the difference. :(

Christ, @Aoami, it never rains but it pours.

Innit. Paying the price for a style that demands so much of the players when we already had a paper thin squad. Ralph basically seems to get a free pass with the fans, but im beginning to have my doubts. Lack of a plan B is a real worry.

Arsenal players proving how pathetic modern day footballers can be.

Or a world-class player getting up to speed after finally getting a run of consecutive appearances.

Why would Bale want to be in the shop window when he can go back to Madrid and earn half a million a week and play golf for a living?
Perhaps he actually wants to play football after his RM contract ends which isn't that far away now, or at least give the impression he is worth the money.

So why wouldn't he "actually want to play football" right now? What a weird take.

It's all kicking off in Catalonia. Bartomeu and a number of other club higher-ups have been arrested concerning "BarçaGate".

Good, I can't stand the sort of goody two shoes illusion around some Spanish clubs.

Norway potentially shaping up to boycott Qatar 2022. Not sure they'd qualify anyway.
