Usikker på hvordan han er som ving. Har han noengang spilt der?
Han var jo veldig god på høyreback da ayling og Dallas var ute. Men er jo ikke store karen. Ayling gir oss mer pondus.
8er må være kanskje beste pos? Vanvittig frekvens når han finner rom. Finnes jo ikke værre enn å møte sånne. God med ball også. Kommer ofte med Stein i skoen slike spillere.

Husker cook og skapte ubalanse hos motstanderen da han akselererte avgårde.
Kan spille i hvilken som heist offensiv kant/midtbanerolle eller back spør du meg. En så gjennombruddshissig spiller med den farten og ballkontroll er jo gull, ikke minst når han skjærer innover fra kanten. Se på dette klippet fra kampen mot WBA som var et av hans siste innhopp før kampen i går. Vi trengte ikke å betale 10 mill pund for Daniel James med en sånn spiller i stallen:

På ingen av de klippene skjærer han inn fra kanten? Daniel James er en helt annen type spiller. Spiller indreløper med Klich tror jeg - med Pablo og Alioski på kanten. Det er et godt bilde på hvorfor han er god som indreløper om ikke annet da.

Ja det var litt klønete formulert. Poenget mitt var at med den farten og ballkontrollen kan han garantert også skape noe som kantspiller.

Det er rått med de løpene hans og hvordan han søker ball og rom i det klippet.
Her et annet klipp som viser hva han kan, fra Swanseakampen i august:

Joda, kan sikkert spille kant fordi han er kvikk. Men nå har vi jo ikke midtbanespillere, så er vel å foretrekke at han spiller indreløper?

Vi bruker han der vi trenger han mest dvs at han får fortsette som «Forshaw».

Han gir oss fart og han er direkte i spillerstilen. Det har vi savnet.
Stort potensiale i gutten, ingen tvil.
Men føler James er en helt annen type. Han er vel mer en klassisk ving som også kan skjære inn i banen. Det har jo ikke vi overhodet.
Wilson ble jo markert ut i går, men han er også en slik type som kan skjære inn og tre folk igjennom. (Eks første sjansen til Derby)
Dette har jo laget skrikt etter siden Grayson var trener.

Men kan man stå og slå assist som Harrison gjorde i går så slipper vi alt det der.
Er man genial er fotball enkelt :-)

Denne artikkelen regner med at vi får se mer av Shackleton denne sesongen. Man spekulerer i om at et evt. Phillips-salg ikke nødvendigvis får så store konsekvenser, da Shackletons fotballhode og arbeidskapasitet er mer en god nok til å bekle den defensive midtbanerollen. For ordens skyld: jeg håper vi beholder Phillips også neste sesong, og at han tilbys ny kontrakt i løpet av de nærmeste ukene. Phillips' kontrakt utløper i '21.

Håper virkelig Shack er tiltenkt en rolle litt fremover på banen, box til box eller offensiv vingback. Som anker tror jeg ikke vi får utnyttet de beste egenskapene hans.
Kalvin er kanskje den spilleren det blir vanskligst å erstatte i dagens tropp.

Mener å ha lest et sted at Shack har gjort det bra som anker/dyp playmaker grunnet veldig god forståelse for spillet. Men for meg ser han ut som en perfekt indreløper. Det skader jo ikke med litt spilleforståelse der heller, kombinert med energi og hurtighet.
Forøvrig enig i at Kalvin har vært fantastisk denne sesongen!

Shack er spilleren som kunne kompensert for en "tynn stall" men som ikke ble brukt. PO kampene "beviste" at det var en feil vurdering av Bielsa å ikke bruke han mer utover våren. Forventer meg store saker fra Shack neste sesong!

The story of Jamie Shackleton's breakthrough season - and what to expect next

There are few better ways to embody just how much changed at Leeds United this season than by look at the year that Jamie Shackleton has had.

On May 11, 2018 the fresh-faced academy hopeful was one of ten players who came off the bench during the second half of Leeds United's 2-0 win over the Myanmar national team at the Mandalar Thiri Stadium in Mandalay.

Fast forward 12 months to the day and he was playing - and playing well - in Leeds United's semi-final play-off first leg win at Derby County.

The 19-year-old has been one of many success stories coming out of the Thorp Arch academy this season, a regular member of Marcelo Bielsa's first-team squad and key figure in Carlos Corberan's national title winning under-23 side, with his energetic displays earning him somewhat of a cult following among Leeds supporters.

The call to 'free Shackleton' was sounded across the fanbase over the final third of the campaign amid Bielsa's preference to stick with his usual starting XI, so it was somewhat fitting that the teenager finally got the chance for an extended run out on the turf where he made his senior debut.

Shackleton's 17-minute cameo against the Rams at Pride Park in August came amid a whirlwind few weeks for the youngster, who followed that up by signing a new contract, playing 90 minutes in the Carabao Cup and then a first league start at Swansea.

That was the culmination of 12 years of graft at the Thorp Arch academy, with the club bringing him from Kippax Athletic at the age of seven, before he singed forms when he was nine.

"[It was] a lot of hard work," Shackleton said following his debut in August. "I've worked with a lot of different coaches that have all helped me along the way. Some really good coaches and a few setbacks at times.

"I've played an age group down before due to my size, but ultimately it's all helped me and yeah, the hard work has gone into getting where I am at the moment."

One of those coaches was Neil Redfearn, who went on the record back in 2016 to talk up his chances.

"There's a little boy, a midfield player called Jamie Shackleton. I think he's got a great chance," said the former Whites academy boss and head coach.

"I think he's a good footballer, he's got great feet. He's not the biggest, but he's very tenacious. He reads the game well."

One of Shackleton's key attributes is proving to be his down-to-earth nature, evident when he revisited these comments.

"Well I was still playing 18s football, bit of 23s football at that time so it was still a way to go to playing first-team football I thought," he said. "It's a good thing to hear from a first-team coach and for him to have that belief in me and it's good that he's been right about it."

The teenager signed a new deal earlier this season
A seven-month injury lay-off during the first year of his apprenticeship was one of these blows, but Shackleton's application saw him return stronger than ever as he worked his way into being a regular in the under-23s squad last season before getting the nod to travel with the Paul Heckingbottom's first-team squad at the end of last season.

"Going to Myanmar was my first experience of being away with the club," he told the LFE in October. "They’re mad for football out there – so many people treated us like celebrities and it was all a bit mad really!

“I don’t think they knew who we were but just seeing an English club coming to play in their country, they loved it. It let me know I was close to the first-team at that point and gave me an insight into first-team experiences and being around the senior players.”

That initial taste of the first-team was followed by another summer of change, as Marcelo Bielsa came in to replace Heckingbottom in June.

The Argentine arrived in West Yorkshire fresh from a marathon videotape session, watching every game the club had played the season before and had seen plenty of Shackleton's under-23s exploits. He obviously liked what he saw, as the youngster was quickly put in with the first-team for pre-season training.

“It’s not what I expected when I came back for pre-season. I came in and trained with them and, to be honest, didn’t expect to be as involved as I have been,” he said.

A number of outings in pre-season followed as Bielsa debuted him at right-back, rather than in the central midfield role in which he had come through the ranks at the academy.

Converting players to new positions has been a hallmark of Bielsa's career and it soon became obvious what the new Whites head coach saw in Shackleton, who's energy and surging runs down the right-hand side made him an obvious fit for Bielsa's system at Leeds.

Ever the eager student, Shackleton, who is already eyeing his coach badges, was quick to embrace this new role and says he now struggles to chose a preference between the two positions.

“I’ve been asked this a lot. It depends on the game, I do enjoy both. If you had asked me before this season: centre-mid all day long,” he said.

“I have enjoyed getting to know the position at right-back this year and that’s where I’ve played the majority of the time, so I enjoy both, I can’t pick for you.”

The next generation of Leeds United youngsters looking to break into the Under-23s side

Despite an eye-catching first start against Swansea, when he got the nod minutes before kick-off after an injury to Liam Cooper in the warm-up and would go on to register an assist, Shackleton would have to settle mainly for cameo roles as the season progressed. 

This is where he showed the kind of attitude that has won him so many fans among the Leeds United supporter base has served him so well.

“That’s a minimum, really. You need to have talent as well, but if you go out there and you work hard and everyone can see that then you can’t really complain,” said Shackleton.

"If you're good enough you're given a chance in the first team at some point so if you keep your head down and keep working hard every day in training, then it's going to come. You've got to believe that."

Shackleton would spend the majority of the second half of the season involved in Bielsa's matchday squads, while helping Corberan's side to the PDL National under-23s crown.

And this synergy between Corberan's side and the first-team has only helped this integration.

Jamie Shackleton opens up on Leeds United, Marcelo Bielsa, giving everything and playing right-back

"It mirrors the first team and it works for both, so he can bring ideas from that and work with us," the Leeds-born teen continues. "When we go out there we play we play stuff that's similar to the first team and it's good to watch, so Carlos has been key to that.

"He's key here. He's the step between first team and the 23s and his ideas reflect on both teams. He helps when you play in the first-team, he helps when you play in the 23s. He's done a great job."

While for most 19-year-olds, establishing yourself in the first-team squad of a promotion candidate managed by one of world football's most respected coaches, plus a national title at youth level would mark an incredibly successful season, but it would appear Shackleton is not done yet.

When fit, Adam Forshaw is a regular name on Bielsa's teamsheets, meaning opportunities for Shackleton in his favoured central midfield position have been few and far between, given the from of Matuesz Klich and Kalvin Phillips.

So when the former Boro midfielder sank to the turf in the centre-circle just over 20 minutes into the first leg at Pride Park, Shackleton was presented with an opportunity to stake a claim.

Just as he shown all season, there were no signs of nerves from the 19-year-old, who took to his task with aplomb, as Leeds' press strangled the life out of Derby's key attacking players, which was in no small measure down to Shackleton's energy and verve in the middle of the park.

Offering a dynamism that has been sometimes lacking Forshaw's play, the Thorp Arch product came close to firing Leeds into a 2-0 lead during the second half as he forced an excellent save out of Kellie Roos. Forshaw missed the second leg and Bielsa had no qualms in turning to Shackleton, who was one of the best players on a disappointing night, as he showed the work rate and tenacity that fans have come to expect.

Leeds United's have a rich history of nurturing young talent that goes back to the 1960s when the core of Don Revie's great side broke through together as teenagers, and fans at Elland Road will always cheer a homegrown player that little bit louder.

This kind of support is evident by the groundswell of good will towards Shackleton from supporters, with the teen having the kind of approval ratings that Theresa May would die for.

And this support extends well beyond the terraces, with Bielsa explaining just how valued Shackleton is.

Injuries, Shackleton, Derby, Guardiola, Simeone - full transcript from Marcelo Bielsa's press conference

"Every time he played, honestly, we saw him," the Leeds head coach explained ahead of the second leg against Derby County.

"There’s a detail that is very important to me, which is how a player is accepted by his team-mates. When all the players accept a new young player it means that they like to have this player on their side.

"When a young player finds his place in a top team in the natural competition you have for the positions, the one who comes inside the team moves someone out of the team.

"That’s why from a team spirit the only way you accept the arrival of a young player is when you make the team better. And for me this happened very clearly with Jamie Shackleton."

These words were echoed by his skipper.

"He's an amazing young man, dead down to earth," Liam Cooper added. "He just wants to come in every day with a smile on his face and work hard. He deserves to be in the team, he deserves to play well because we see how hard he trains every day and I thought he was a different class on Saturday.

"Hopefully for him he'll stay in the team but i know if he doesn't he'll still be the same boy."

While Leeds' campaign ended in a crushing disappointment, Shackleton can take solace in the fact that better days in a Leeds United shirt await him.

His first England call-up has followed, with Paul Simpson naming him in the Under-20 squad for the Toulon tournament, where the teenager will be hoping to continue his late-season momentum and carry it into Marcelo Bielsa's pre-season.

With Bielsa confirming that he will be staying at Leeds United for another year, Shackleton can expect to be a key part of the head coach's core squad next term. A bright future awaits.

Jamie Shackleton primed to fill valuable role for Marcelo Bielsa

Jamie Kemp
Of the many sub-plots that came together to produce Leeds’ play-off second leg against Derby, few will be worth remembering. The details of that night are too heavy to recount; too galling and too worthless now, with pre-season for 2019–20 underway. What happened under the lights on May 15th has no need for elaboration. And anyway, even with the benefit of having attended and re-watched the game, the overriding conclusions are still hazy. “It’s not necessary to analyse (the game),” as Marcelo Bielsa said shortly after full time.

Bielsa was right — trying to find reasons why Leeds’ season had ended was pointless then. The consequences of the result were abrupt and definitive. Leeds weren’t going to be promoted and the season was over, with any other implications falling underneath that. The future for Leeds, and how the events of May 15th had influenced it, would take some time to be pieced together.

At the forefront of this future, wedged in between the colliding realities of Leeds’ promotion dream and their crushing collapse, was Jamie Shackleton.

“From a team spirit (point of view), the only way you accept the arrival of a young player is when you make the team better. And for me this happened very clearly with Jamie Shackleton.” — Marcelo Bielsa, May 2019
The 19-year-old first played for Leeds back in August 2018, coming off the bench for the final 17 minutes away at Pride Park. In between then, he had performed the role of sometimes substitute: a 10-minute reliever for an exhausted midfield teammate, or occasionally as a bolt of electricity from full-back late in games. In December, injuries led Shackleton into consecutive league starts as the deputy right-back, although he then wouldn’t feature again as a starter in the league until May. The play-offs — Leeds’ biggest pair of games in over a decade — from which he began on the bench, and went on to play 156 of 180 possible minutes.

Leeds’ second leg against Derby was Jamie Shackleton’s fourth league start in professional football. It was his second league start at Elland Road, and his first ever league start while playing in his natural midfield position.

For the circumstances of his appearance in the team, compounded by the size of the event and the fact that he spent much of his time man-marking Mason Mount — one of the standout young English players in his age range, who played 38 games last season — Shackleton’s performances were the most consequential sub-plot of the play-offs in regards to Leeds’ immediate future, as well as a timely reminder in the final throes of the season that the 19-year-old’s inclusion in Bielsa’s squad is not simply a case of making up the numbers.

Although comfortable playing at right-back, the play-offs offered us the chance to see Shackleton playing in central midfield for his first extended minutes in the first team. And even from the evidence of the 2019 play-offs alone, it’s clear to see what Shackleton offers in this position, and how that can be effective for Leeds in the short-term.

Shackleton carries Leeds up the field late on in the play-off first leg — v Derby (A)
The most striking aspect of Shackleton’s game is the natural tempo with which he plays. This is a theme that carries over practically all of his actions on the pitch. Even in the most basic responsibilities — be it playing a short pass wide to a full-back, or simply recovering position goal-side of his marker after Leeds turn over possession — Shackleton is always looking to get through his tasks sharply, allowing for as little waste as possible. This is a particularly good trait for a teenager, given that the natural struggle for players of Shackleton’s age is usually the reverse: they have difficulty meeting the speed of the senior game, and are more prone to dwelling in their decisions.

In possession, Shackleton looks to set himself quickly and keep play moving through the team with rhythm. As we can see in the graphic below, his use of the ball in the play-offs came almost exclusively through short, high-efficiency passes, seeking combinations and promoting movement in classic Bielsa style.

Shackleton’s completed passes in the 2018–19 play-offs — v Derby (A)
This was characteristic of Shackleton and Leeds alike. While the teenager is sharp and economical in possession — he turned the ball over with just 19.7% of his touches in the Championship last season — the Whites are also a team who look to advance their play quickly through midfield areas.

Despite having the highest rate of possession in the Championship last season, Leeds ranked 20th in the league for the percentage of their passes that were made in the middle third of the pitch. This evidences the way in which Bielsa wanted his team to play — with patient build-up in the defensive third, but then the acceleration through midfield and into the attacking third. Leeds would rarely be seen preserving the ball in safe midfield areas with long spells of lateral passing, even in the later stages of games when they held a comfortable lead.

This way of playing makes Shackleton highly compatible with Bielsa’s ideas, particularly in the №8 role. Given the tempo at which he operates, it’s conducive to the 19-year-old always moving quickly into the next phase of play — once the ball is passed, Shackleton is already looking for the return or to create space. This ability to transition quickly from defence to attack (and vice-versa) is a key attribute, and one that has heightened value playing under Marcelo Bielsa.

When assessing central midfielders, we would usually consider speed and agility to be lower-priority skills. Welcome, of course, but not essential, compared to that of a winger or a forward. However, Shackleton is able to harness these as the driver for his play in a way that makes him a fairly unique case as a box-to-box midfielder.

Shackleton goes the length of the pitch in transition — v Derby (A)
The 19-year-old is effective at progressing the ball, both through dribbling and taking up good positions in support runs. When you then factor in the speed at which he’s able to do so, it presents a real problem for opposition midfielders who will rarely come up against players as quick as Shackleton in central areas. In the open field he is simply a mismatch for most, while he needs no invite to go through the gears.

Likewise, Shackleton knows he can exploit space over short distances to create more favourable situations for the team. Just small injections of tempo can take Leeds from a neutral position into an attack with momentum, and these too are moments which he will learn to pick more precisely as he gains in experience and gets a better feel for how he can use his attributes to his advantage.

In addition to his obvious value in possession, Shackleton also projects as a competitive defender within Bielsa’s system. The Argentine once summed up his strategy on defending as “we run all the time”, stating that it’s easier to stop danger than it is to create. The reality of it is a bit more precise however, with Leeds playing a rare man-to-man marking style and handing individual assignments for each player out of possession in every game.

On the whole though, much of Leeds’ work in defensive duties comes through individual duels, recovering position and getting bodies around the ball. This suits Shackleton’s skill-set, particularly given the amount of pursuit that Leeds often have to do out of possession. His energy and quickness to the ball was apparent in the play-offs against Derby, especially in what were two highly competitive games featuring lots of contested duels.

Uses speed to prevent counter-attack and immediately gets ahead of the ball — v Derby (H)
Shackleton has split his minutes across central midfield and right-back for both the first team and the U23’s in 2018–19. This co-existence between the two positions compliments his defensive work across the two, with both roles forcing him to become adept in different situations. In midfield, Shackleton stands out for his speed of pressing and then recovering if he finds himself ahead of play.

At full back, Shackleton gets challenged in 1v1 duels much more frequently, and this is another situation in where we see how well his physical ability serves him. The teenager’s agility allows him to adjust his feet very quickly, which when coupled with his aggression in contact, makes him a tricky opponent to get rid of.

Although he is small in stature, Shackleton is able to use the benefits of his physical ability — low centre of gravity, agility and endurance — to outweigh the potential drawbacks when playing against bigger, stronger opponents. Within Bielsa’s system where his players are expected to play with maximum intensity, Shackleton fits the bill more than adequately.

It remains to be seen what role Bielsa will deem appropriate for Shackleton in 2019–20, but there is little doubt that the Argentine knows the value of what he can bring to the team.

With the benefit of another full pre-season — coming off the back of mature performances in the play-offs against Derby, as well as a subsequent call-up to the England U20 squad for the Toulon Tournament — the young midfielder appears to be gathering momentum at the beginning of what looks to be a potential-filled career.

Hva skjer egentlig med Jamie Shackelton? Ser ikke at han figurerer i lagoppstillinger og har ikke hørt noe skade....

Trolig skadet. Spekuleres ihvertfall i det på Waccoe. Har vært tyst fra klubben om dette, det samme med Roberts. Dog trolig ikke den store skaden.
