Robbie Blake comments on Adryan performance, whether Leeds star should keep place?

Should Adryan start the next game against Fulham?

Adryan may have made his highest number of minutes per touch before his substitution against Ipswich Town at the weekend, but one former Leeds star was still disappointed to see him withdrawn.

Leeds were 4-1 down at the time, and they were struggling to get the 20-year-old as involved as they would have liked.

Former Leeds United forward Robbie Blake said that the team did not look the same without him

He told Radio Yorkshire: "The threat went out from Leeds when Adryan came off.

"Neil (Redfearn) was looking after him there, they were 4-1 down the game was over, it was just to get Billy (Sharp) some time.

He added: "I'm pretty sure Adryan will be playing against Fulham on Saturday."

Picking Adryan at home to Fulham seems a must, for he has been the team's creative force in recent games. It has come to the point that without him, it's uncertain if there is a player ready to take up the responsibility.

Casper Sloth is out of favour and has underwhelmed, while Chris Dawson is even younger and more inexperienced.

So long as Leeds decide to stick with the same system, which at home is a must, he deserves to stay in the team. The next question will be when the side play away from home, do they adopt a new tactical approach, and if and how Adryan fits into it.
