I'm happy for Ayling,he gives his all for the shirt and is an important player for the squad.
I have to question why VO/JM/AR decided to spend 10 million on Kristenson when we had Ayling & Drammeh who can play right back,surely that money could have been used to strengthen other areas of the defense,Wobber would have been a welcome signing last summer for the same money as Kristenson..
Should have put that 10m into a decent "managers package" and we wouldnt be in this fcking mess
Congratulations Luke, while I do not believe it was in the best interest to extend your playing contract. I am happy you have your short term future sorted. To be honest mate. You should look towards your future and start doing your coaching badges. Do not let your performances drop back to terrible now you got your extension.
Yes Luke does indeed put heart and soul into the games he play, this is a correct statement but does that mean his performances have always be good? In fact does Firpo, Dremah and Kristensen get the same leeway from the fans as good old boy Luke gets? Other will not agree on here but I feel that because he was part of the promotion winning squad he gets too many free passes for 5 out 10 performances.
Sometimes we need to step back and see if having a 31 fullback who is performing at about 5/10 (average across multiple games) better then a 20 year old or 25 year-old doing the same.
Well for starters it's rather difficult to compare horses with donkeys.
I for one have not seen Drameh perform to anything near Premiership standard. He looks promising and over time & with patience he may well make the cut. But for the time being it looks like he has found his level in the Championship. Very big chance we'll all be there next season.
As for Firpo & Kristensen, honestly could you really see them getting minutes in any other Premiership team?
Ayling it's true, does certainly have his share of 5/10 performances.
But we are that used to Firpo & Kristensen putting in dross performances that when they put in a half decent performance (5/10) we are all dancing with delight.
Forgot to mention that Ayling has certainly earned some of the credit/goodwill he receives because he has proven his worth over the years.
That's even without taking his low transferfee into the equation.
Very well deserved,and it's nice to see the club rewarding him for his loyalty 👍👍
He's amazing. Ayling, Cooper and Dallas are Leeds Utd through and through.
Yeah lovely guy as well and he had the pleasure of talking to me for 2mins.... he really loves our club and came over really well.
I must admit I'm eating my words on him as I thought it was time he, Coops and Klich etc were fondly moved on with free transfers.... he's been excellent the last few games and I just hope his legs don't run out!
Well deserved Bill.... 👍👏
The pleasure he will have got will have been out of the fact he only had to meet you for 2 minutes 😂
Chuffed for him. Always gives his all and has been a great player for us.
Well deserved. Captain's armband suits him.
