Will the Whites take three points against Brighton and Hove Albion? That’s the issue driving debate among the Leeds United faithful.

I hope Lewis Cook and all the other Leeds United players come to the boil on Saturday!
Three points are needed badly and with all the players on international duty seeming having done well, I hope their optimism and enthusiasm rubs off on the other players around them.
Uwe Rosler needs to have all 11 players on high tempo from the start, pressing Brighton players all over the pitch and looking to create chances all the time.
We need to get in behind their defence as often as possible.
Then our defenders need to concentrate on defending with the midfield mindful of their defensive duties as well, but if we press Brighton back then defending becomes easier.
Finally, even if we don’t score (and if we do) in first 10/20 minutes the tempo must be kept up. And there has to be no slacking off if no early break through comes.
I think I have said this before, so apologies for any repeats; this is not the BBC!
Time to raise the motivation level

Uwe Rosler had better get some monster motivation into the team by Saturday. Otherwise ..
I hear tell that there are knife-grinding sounds coming from the boardroom and the ‘manager eater’ has become fidgety, ill-tempered and very restless.
We need to win and win only – nothing less will do Uwe, mate. On, on, on.
Replacement for Rosler?

I said at the start of the season that Leeds would need to secure 18 points from their first 10 games to show any sign of play-off potential.
Looking at the table presently, I feel vindicated as the four teams in the play-off spots all have 18 points. We are currently seven points adrift from a play-off place.
The start of the season hasn’t been great and does not require further discussion. For me, the jury is still out regarding Uwe Rosler’s capacity to manage a club like Leeds.
If Massimo Cellino sacks Rosler in the very near future, which is looking likely based on current results, what manager in their right mind would want to take charge at Leeds?
