Pontus Jannson and Bamford aren’t bad players to be bringing in! Other than that I am clueless!

Looks good to me. Am guessing the "debate" part might be Alf being completely AWOL? I'm guessing Wheats isn't in there simply because best thing for him his to be completed rested?

Great that Hall starts, tho. Why not. Are we actually playing 4-4-f*cking-2 btw?!

I'm guessing (please note the guessing) that striker-wise, Alf not selected and Magennis on the bench indicates both will be in the starting line up for Saturday. Wheats missing for the same reason. I'm hoping no news is good news with Sammi. The rest is all a bit lucky-dip right now. How much do we want to be in this Cup comp as opposed to wanting league strength?

We look terribly weak in midfield. I am expecting a 6-1 home win. However hoping for a fluke from somewhere, perhaps 2-3. COYW.

I suspect ALF is either ill, injured or on his way out.

Don’t see him starting Saturday.

Ameobi has a badly bruised hip and Iles said word was he wouldn’t be risked tonight.

We’ve picked a team to give players a game, i don’t think Parky cares that much if we lose.

If ALFs not injured that's a fair message. Otherwise not far off as expected. Happy to see Hall get a start. Interesting to see his level.

Needless freekick from Josh Vela,

Poor defending. Wildschut with the half arsed leg swing.

Almost walked it in the net.

4 times Leeds have chipped the ball into the box and our defenders don't know what to do.

Oh well. There's always next year.

This defensive display doesn't fill me with confidence.

We look awful.

Adam Le Fondre has left the club for Sydney and I don't mean on holiday.

Announced mid match. Surprised they didn't have him starting then subbed and off to depart.

Shite defending. Shite up top.

All huff and puff in between. 2 down at half time and a striker down.

I managed to see the first 35mins, and thought we looked ok in large parts. Weak in defensive midfield, unsurprisingly.

Played fairly well apart from obvious rustiness at the back. It’s clear this midfield will never start a championship match. If Vela and O’Neil start together we are in trouble.

Oztumer’s movement is good, but he needs to do more on the ball.

Donaldson looks useful. Wilson looks like when he’s fit he will be class. Hobbs very rusty.

Hall - send that lad somewhere, this level is absolutely miles and miles above him. Christ, it’s scary how far off this he is. He will never make a championship footballer imho.

Did we get cash for Alf? Weirdly gutted he's gone tbh, it's a shit/cruel game innit.

Bit harsh on Hall IMO, none of 'em look up to much. Hope he leaves him on, we're getting tanked anyhow
