No, maybe not but in some games we'll need to be more defensive and he'd be ideal, if fit. Big if, but you know what I mean. That's why I said Rodrigo should play against weaker teams - I thought that implied a more cautious lineup against stronger sides.

I’d add Raphinha, Poveda and Gelhardt to that list...

Yeah, I thought about Raph definitely. Not sure if the other two would be ready yet though.

Again, I have to agree.

I wonder if he'll ever play again at this rate. Or certainly not at this level the way things have been going ..

Was thinking this myself.

Bielsa sees Raphinha, who has adapted very quickly, as an additional alternative to both wings & eventually to “the centrally offensive position.”

Poveda proving to be a proper character within the squad.

After a nutmeg on Ayling in training he posted this on twitter.

Sunday Mirror has Spurs and Pool considering £50m bids for Kalvin next Summer. We can surely resist that? Top ten finish (hopefully) and 49ers money should prevent us being a selling club, or am I being naive?

I recall after promotion someone saying KP was ready to leave for a PL club and VO convinced him to stay. He said he couldnt forgive himself if he'd see us promoting with him elsewhere.
I believe as long as we are in PL and things in the club are functioning well he will not leave in the next 3-4 years regardless of position.
He loves leeds and there is not much to moan about at the moment
