    Meslier will take over from Hugo for France. Whether that could happen at Spurs is another matter but it would be a good call. "Confident and commanding" he definitely is.

    Shearer was discussing the Spurs win and believes Conte will have us challenging top four and the Spurs board board reinforcements. He was hugely impressed with Conte's changes for the 2nd half and how he is trying to get the winning mentality and competitive intensity to the players and fans in the stadium.

    Totally agree. I did not expect free flowing glorious attacking football after 2 weeks, but that 1st half was so bad it was scary! Imo only 1 of Højbjerg and Skipp can play. Not both at the same time, unless to shore up, and Winks should never play. We need Ndombele in that midfield, and I'd rather play 3-5-2, as that gives more options. I think we'll play that eventually, but I understand why he goes with the 3-4-3 now, as it is easier to coach. It's basically just keep shape and run. The individual tasks are quite easy. 3-5-2 is a bit more intricate imo.

    I think our defence gets ample cover from our CM…. It’s about all our CM does offer the team.

    Not so much 'stopped' as 'had fewer opportunities'.

    We need a Ndombele who will finally step up and listen to a manager.


    Maybe Conte will be that man.

    It wasn't an unhappy recheck

    And I see that Kalvin Phillips is apparently on only £38k per week, which Levy could easily afford to treble… hopefully Robbie Keane put in a good word for us :D

    First half was fairly poor. Could see what we were trying to do, but so could Leeds and they dealt with it fairly comfortably. Front three, wing backs, got very little really right.

    Much better second half. Credit to Conte and the players for seeing the change and making it happen. At the same time, let's not get carried away, Leeds missing several key players, out of form and running out of steam in the second half.

    Love to see us changing a game that much without changing any players. Shows clear potential for further development, more about getting the right out of the players rather than everyone not being good enough in various ways.

    Goals will come for Kane now.

    Kelvin Philips playing as the deep lying playmaker for us would be a great move IMO

    I was also impressed with Gelhardt for Leeds, only 19 i think, but thought he did very well, a couple of decent efforts on target. I do like Leeds (i have probably been brain washed by the media hype with Bielsa) but can appreciate them having a go and knowing the way they want to play.

    There better than the sum of their parts
    The way they play is so we’ll drilled it gets more out of them
    And then they do have some quality players too

    I'm sure I used to know another team a bit like that... :-(

    How long before Conte realises our fans dont get behind the team when it's tough, great when its 2 or 3 up, but much happier moaning.

    I thought the HT booing was pathetic. Pathetic.

    I understand being unhappy with the display but that booing is wrong, how many people perform well at work or school if they are slagged off? Read all this stuff about the wall of sound but let's hear it when the team need it.

    Wouldn't we all. Although we might need to get his name right on the contract (Calvin's bad enough but Kelvin? ;))

    I think he'll stay loyal to Leeds (Granny Val would turn in her grave if he left) but if Leeds get relegated there's some rich pickings to be had there. It's not like we haven't done it before, Robbie Keane, Paul Robinson, Aaron Lennon, Danny Rose etc.

    That said, if we got the likes of Phillips, Meslier and or Raphinha I think I might be sleeping in the garden for a while :oops:
