The balance of Leeds United’s squad and Jordan Botaka’s loan move has been driving debate among the Elland Road faithful.

The shape of the (Leeds United) squad worries me.

If Eunan O’Kane plays with Liam Bridcutt in a 4-4-2, we re left with Stuart Dallas Kemar Roofe and Hadi Sacko to play wide, leaving a lot of players redundant.

Then, if we play one up top to get Pablo Hernandez or Alex Mowatt playing number 10 at home, it would be seen as negative.

One option would be to play 3-5-2 at home with Charlie Taylor and Lewie Coyle playing as wing-backs.

We could then still play a number 10 behind two strikers. Just an opinion.

Also, Tyler Denton knows if he keeps working hard his chance will come; Taylor isn’t ‘defo’ to play every game, plus he may be gone in January (transfer window).

Harte strikes a chord with fans

I like these Ian Harte interviews YEP (September 7). Can’t we have more from him please; he has done it all this fellow?

I wish we could have re-signed Harte as he proved himself with promotions through leagues with his other clubs . I think he is the only player ever I would have wanted the club to go back for and re-sign. The rest of the season ... no chance.

Pushing for best left-back ever

It’s good to see Ian Harte using all his LUFC knowledge and experience to work with our youngsters.

Although not always appreciated by the usual minority of fans, he was one of our best-ever left-backs and his goal scoring record (not just at Leeds) for a left-back must be up there with the best.

Botaka loan deal is a nonsense

Like everything else at LUFC, this loan (Jordan Botaka) was pretty senseless to the supporter in the stands.

At a time when we’ve been crying out for creativity, pace and something different, Botaka was criminally never given much of a chance.

Yet we’re quite prepared to ship him out on loan while we languish around the bottom four, desperate for the qualities he appears to posess.

So what if his attitude is under question (allegedly); I don’t care. Get him on the pitch and let him do some damage, instead of the shower we are persisting with.

I’d rather watch 15 minutes of Botaka causing mayhem than 90 of the uninspiring, spineless nothingness we’ve been watching for months.

Yep, another great move by LUFC, eh?
