Samu Saiz would be better than Messi if he made the correct final ball
Okay, maybe a slight exaggeration. Seriously though, he absolutely ran the show against Derby and if his final ball had been better, Leeds wouldn’t have been far off scoring double figures. Sometimes I think his brain is too far ahead of his body, hence why he does things like scoop the ball so badly that it doesn’t go anywhere near the net when through on goal. It’s early days of course this season and we know how it went for Saiz in the later stages last season, but with Bielsa at the helm it seems as though Samu may be able to drag us through most games.
The most impressive thing he did during the game was sprinting back over half the pitch to make an important tackle, which is something he never would have done last year and it was great to see.
