Welcome to a new section on TSS called Terrace Wars. The big debates that go on around Elland Road will be discussed here and put to a vote in the true democratic style our country so truly loves and chairman refuses to consider.

First up for debate is Luciano Becchio, a player many think should be dropped in favour of our other strikers. The usual suggested replacement is Mike Grella who has showed flashes of brilliance this season from the subs bench. His team mates rate him as the most skilful player in the side (Jermaine Beckford, Neil Kilkenny, Soccer AM team mates 2010) and many fans believe he should be given an extended run in the team to showcase his ability.

Grella isn’t the only contendor though. Paul Dickov is an extremely experienced and consistent (if somewhat dirty) forward that many believe could produce more goals than Luciano Becchio even though he is close to drawing a state pension.

Tresor Kandol is also back in contention and has somehow become a bit of a cult hero at Elland Road. Not so long ago he was less popular than Peter Ridsdale, but since he rediscovered his scoring boots in the reserves and while out on loan, there’s been calls to have him returned to the first team. He also does an exceptional moonwalk, which must be taken into consideration.

FInally, we come to our newest candidate; Davide Somma. The inexperienced South African is working wonders at struggling Lincoln City and has managed six goals in as many appearences during his loan spell there. Some are suggesting it could be similar to when Jermaine Beckford went on loan to Scunthorpe.

Of course, Luciano Becchio has his fans too. A lot of people point to his work rate as a reason he should never be dropped. Some also claim he’s as much to do with how many Beckford scores as the man himself, and that without him, Beckford would struggle. Hardly the most prolific striker, but definitely has his strengths.

So, should Luci be dropped from the starting XI? Vote and comment below.
