Re: Gibson

Ben Mee was a poor left full back and anyone who says we should switch him needs their heads examing. Our problem is that Mee and Tarkowski have no confidence in Lowton and Pieters who are not fit for purpose. Tarkowskis charecter needs to be put to question has he throws in the towel far to easily...

I can't see Leeds mucking it up this time. I'd certainly fancy them to be competitive in the Prem with their support and Bielsa as manager.
Why would their support make them competitive? They're not on the pitch. Well, hopefully not. :D
