Not our problem how many loanees they have - Jack needs to play whenever hes fit and that should have been a condition of the loan.

Tottenham need to remind Leeds that Clarke needs to be playing week in week out and gaining experience. If they refuse to play him recall and loan him to one of their competitors for promotion with agreement he will play.
You really think poch would do that to bielsa? No way.

He's 18 and had only just broken into the Leeds first team, we can't expect him to be playing every week now, just because he's signed for us, a 'big team'.
A season fighting to earn a place in a challenging Leeds side can only be good for his development.
Better there, than not playing any competitive games for us.

subbed off at ht in their league cup game, not getting very good reviews from their fans.
Had a bbq at the weekend and sat with a season ticket holder who thinks we have bought a dud.

In his view he has a lot to learn, needs to bulk up, improve his decision making ability and had a seizure on the pitch due to drinking loads of energy drinks.

The money is not a massive amount these days and if it didn't work out I am sure we would get our money back but it's a concern that the fans don't rate him.

He's an 18 year old kid who managed to make an impact in the few matches he played last season. Previous to that he was wanted by quite a few prem teams while in Leeds academy. The fan is welcome to his opinion but it sounds like sour grapes to me.

No offence, but the season ticket holder sounds like "one of those".

He had a seizure in the dugout, wasn't even on the pitch.


Leeds fans seem to have decided he's crap miraculously since we bought him (beforehand they were raving), and in the 30 mins he's played since then.

Now that they already lost him it's quite irrelevant what they say because they will only be pissy about it anyway. It's when a player is rumoured away that you can get some insight into the fans perspective.

18 years old and has a lot to learn.
Didn't we all.

Played a couple of dozen games
scored a couple
assisted a couple
oh and had a seizure on the pitch
through drinking too much energy drink.

That's the clincher for me.

Get rid-

Not in the team again today seems like it would be best to call him back and send him out loan to someone else

I know quite a few Leeds fans who rate him very highly, although all with the caveat that he's going to need time.

Whole situation is a bit weird if the Levy Pochettino stories are true. If the buy was Levy’s call, surely if Pochettino didn’t want him it would be on back of Bielsa recommendation. And the fact he can’t get a look in now seems to back that up. So Levy decided to buy a player that came Not recommended by a source close and trusted by his manager. We’ve all seen what happens with a player Pochettino didn’t want, will likely just be Nkoudou all over again. Hopefully I’m wrong.

The theory falls down a little on the premise that Bielsa doesn't rate him, if so why take him back on loan?

Very intelligent running into the right place without attracting attention.
