Big game for Saiz, tonight, I reckon. I read on one of those moronic clickbait sites today an article: 5 reasons why Leeds should sell Saiz in the summer. I started out reading it scoffingly, but ended up thinking that actually they've got a point.
Obviously, us losing all 6 games of his suspension made him look indispensable, but is he really that valuable? As our resident sage RW pointed out quite correctly last week, he is obviously a pretty repulsive twat personally. He is also extremely volatile. It would be great tonight if we had a ref who recognised that every team in this league has figured out that the way to stop him is to do Mourinho-style take-it-in-turns fouling. But we will probably have another bonehead who won't even notice. So will Saiz end up with yet another yellow card received after he himself was fouled..........or worse, a red? Another thing is that I have a feeling the other players all become a bit jittery (as if they weren't bloody jittery enough already after our recent results) due to Saiz's intensity and obvious frustration. I was over for the Forest match, when Saiz was very impressive, but I felt the rest of the team was slightly intimidated by him. Roofe's chance, set up by Saiz after a brilliant run, and smacked against the bar when he should have scored, was a case in point. TBH, SS was about as rubbish as everybody else up at Boro. I hope he is brilliant and scores and leads us to victory tonight............but if he isn't...............???!!! _______________________________________________ Leedslist mailing list Info and options: https://mailman.gn.apc.org/mailman/listinfo/leedslist To unsubscribe, email leedslist-unsubscr...@gn.apc.org Find us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/leedslist/ RIP Jimmy WAC-COE
