Tyler Roberts is alive!

The striker arrived with some fanfare during the January transfer window, but got cracked shin bone and has yet to make an appearance for Leeds.

It was good to see him up to full strength and training again, as he looks to make enough of an impression to get a chance at first-team action this year. The club spent some money on him and he was highly regarded at West Bromwich Albion, but he’s got to impress Marcelo Bielsa and prove he has the fitness to play in the Argentine’s system. Time will tell if he’s done enough to get a chance at starting, make the first team, or end up as one of the “15” players that Bielsa wants to see go.

On to the links.
