Leeds must do the unthinkable and accept £10m bid for senior player to ignite huge overhaul

Over-reliance on one player

Saiz is a mighty fine player whose combination of touch, vision and finesse is at a level above most players in the Championship. But, watching Leeds play when he is in the team, they are increasingly reliant on him. That is no problem when he is at the top of his game and dictating the play. However, when the Spaniard is below his best, even a little bit, the team suffers.

Having such a standout players means others take the easy option when in possession and give him the ball rather than take responsibility themselves.
