Hi all, emergency press conference At 5pm has been called by Bielsa. Hopefully it's to unveil Kiko, but knowing our luck he bloody resigns, anyways, up the whites
ALAW.

Not to unveil Kiko according to the YEP, but more on Spygate. Not sure he needs to say anything more today. Possibly to clearly apologise and clarify that he won’t do it again. Also to keep it seperate from the football press conference tomorrow. Hope it’s nothing more than that, but with Bielsa you never quite know. I thought he looked terrible after the game on Friday but watching his body language talking to Orta yesterday, he seemed a lot more relaxed.

Oh, no, now I AM worried! Hope you’re right Spanish!

Sounds like he's calling out the FL, no apologies, he's now doing a PowerPoint thingy to let the press know how a coach's mind works.

Send a video of it to Fat Frank, he needs all the help he can get and sign it 'love Bubba' :-)

Looks like Daniel James bid has hit the rocks. Not that upset really if the alternative is O'Dowda. The boy is the real deal. Would love to see hime on the wing in white. The lad has a fine touch, a sweet left foot and pace to burn. Go get him.

Thanks for that Leodis, don’t know a lot about him. What I like is Bielsa clearly going for young talent that he can clearly develop on the pitch. Obviously alongside much needed experience for the gk position.

I'm a bit worried about this investigation.
I know I'm a pessimist but I can honestly see points reduction coming.
I think radz was a bit premature with his apology and fair play statement. That is admitting guilt.
I hope he toughens up and gets his lawyers to take it to court and subpoena every other team in the league (s) to see if they have done it! What's good for the goose etc.
in the meantime I would announce a ground ban for Lampard and Derby!
Finally. Let's use this to thump the living daylights out of everybody in particular brum and Millwall.

Whats the difference in scouts or indeed the manager going to watch an opponents match the previous week. It's a lot off bullshoot. Points deduction was always going to be the FL's goal. Wouldn't surprise me if they hit us with 15 points to get us out of the top 6. Problem is for them, we would still come close to a top two finish. The day in the life of a Leeds United Supporter . MoT.

Would also be a neat way out of televising games. Isn't that giving other clubs information on the way you play! More than one way to skin a cat.

If there is, and I mean IF, a knee jerk reaction to this sham, then if I was Radz, I'd ban Sly Spurts from Elland Road. All they seem to continue to do is bring on pundits who clearly have a dislike for our club, and believe that we should be made an example of. Make an example of us for what? SS rely on us being an attractive proposition for their subscribers, hence the regular disturbance to our fixtures. Maybe they should be left to show Millwall every week?

Can't see that EFL can sanction a points deduction, at worse a nominal fine . Seems we are being tried by media, and I guess the EFL and FA will feel duty bound to show they are doing something. Maybe the EFL should do more to charge the teams that are breaching the FFP than being drawn into this witch hunt. The fact is there is no rule for spying on the opposition so they having to trawl through their rules to find a rule to fit this in to charge us. Radz must put his legal team on standby, we are Leeds and they can't beat us on the pitch.

Great post Mezzer nailed it!

There's a precedent for the punishment albeit it it was the Prem. Crystal Palace got "inside info" on the Cardiff team, Cardiff wanted the game replayed and the PL ended up fining Palace £25,000. Just a bit of perspective, then again the FL is not the PL, nevertheless, it's guidance for them, and us ;)

Radz should give Massimo a call, he knows some very good lawyers ;)

Have just read that we are signing Frazer Forster before the end of the week. Thought we were getting the Real deal done this week. Dunno what to believe anymore.

Tory I believe we are considering making both additions.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jan 2019 20:26:43
Interesting! Perhaps the week where we had injuries to Blackman and Bailey is leading us to secure more strength in depth. With the outfield players, much more flexibility between the two squads of players, less options with the goalies, even KP, Alioski or Dallas couldn’t be that flexible!

Agree0 0Disagree

Looks like the plan may be to take BPF back to the under 23s. There he can gain playing time and learn better than sitting on the bench. We all can see that though he has fought the good fight valiantly, he is not quite there yet. But he is yound, talented and strong of mind. He won't be discarded as such but given the time to gain more experience and mature and grow as a keeper. His time will come again.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jan 2019 22:14:54
Kiwis that seem a bit unfair on the under23 keeper, who is doing a good job, as is BPF.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jan 2019 23:17:06
It’s a good point Kiwi, how many times does the bench goalkeeper get to do anything.

We might just be lining up different GK options in case one doesn’t come off but if we do get both of them that will be one big tick in the gk department.

With the under 23s we have, Huffer and Miazak. If Bailey drops back, one of those might go out.

I like Huffer and just wonder if in the medium term he might be the prospect. Really dominates his area. I was close to him and listening to what he was shouting . Constant encouragement and positional “coaching”. Very impressive.

15 Jan 2019 14:36:58
just paper talk would one of them want to sit on bench.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jan 2019 14:54:18
Absolutely mygod! It’ll be one or the other, and I think Forster is the backup plan. Hopefully some clarity in the next 24hrs!

Would love forster, great keeper but if we get the Spanish guy then we won't get forster.

I feel sorry for Wagner. I liked his positive and honest interviews. And I thought he did extremely well with an average Huddersfield side.

(Yes, I remember the spat with Monk but with hindsight I can't get to angry about what happened
And yes I know it's the dogbothers but I think the manager was reasonably good at his job. Getting them up and getting 2 years of Premiership money. Not to mention the parachute payments. He certainly paid for himself)

Very good under 23 performance today!

Brown just about lasted the 90, clearly tired in the last 15 but showed some classy touches and good finishes.

I mentioned the need to get 2 of Aapo, Hugo and Pascal playing together regularly. Well today the played all three with Pascal, left back ish and for the first half Pearce on the left wing.

Aapo has a great game solid in defense and pinging some great passes forward.

In the second half Robbie Gotts replaced Shackleton in midfield and Davis replaced Pearce. Those two changes made a real difference. Gotts, a real dynamo, great going forward. David more effective than Pearce.

KP played a full game, calm and assured and Jordan Stevens had one of the best games I've seen from him

Kun played up front and had a few good opportunities.

2-0 and particularly in the second half we should have had a fair few more as the post was hit a few times.

Brown looking better and getting close to being able to come off the bench, but I think he will have another 90 mins next week at least.

You can see the confidence that Aapo, Gotts and Davis have got from their time with the first team.

I turned round during the game and Pablo, Alioski and Beradi were stood right behind me. Lots of the first team drifted about watching the game at various times.

As it stands tonight Leeds too at Chanpionship, under 23 and under 18 level! Sweet!

I do like Gotts

Fair play to for first team players going to watch future and present team mates. That’s class

That’s the current ethos going through this club and a massive reason for why we will succeed.

Love your reports on the under 23 games Spanish. Thanks for these and please keep them coming. I'm either getting old or dead lazy because I'm finding the trip to see these myself a bit burdensome. But I really do enjoy getting the inside juice on how the players are going.

Agree2 0Disagree

14 Jan 2019 19:09:24
Did they instantly recognise you and say "hello Spainish, we like your reports"?

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Jan 2019 19:26:58
Kiwi, I enjoy the games. It’s interesting apart from the game, who you see and what you hear in the chat going on around.

Next Monday it’s the Premier league Cup against Southampton, tough game and it’s been moved to Tadcaster Albion. 7pm kick off, £3 entry, worth it! Possibly get to see Brown again and one or two of the other returners in addition to a whole bunch of great regulars.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jan 2019 19:27:19
Thanks Spanish for the match/ player report. All your posts are considered and sensible. I can always tell they are your posts before seeing the name at the bottom. Great to find out about the youngsters/ returnees. Keep them coming mot.

Agree2 0Disagree

14 Jan 2019 23:29:39
Tewit, it took me a few seconds to register who they were! I would have liked to practice my Spanish with Pablo, but the words didn’t come out! At the Barnsley game, I did manage to have a brief conversation with Carlos in Spanish before the game started! I don’t think he was expecting it!

Down south, Thanks, I’d encourage anyone to get to the games if you can. You get a really interesting perspective on the club and you are so much closer to the action. And to be honest now, the quality of the teams we are putting out and the football were playing is great.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jan 2019 10:06:27
Spanish. Think we all love your reports, long may you keep posting them.

Two thoughts. 1.Do you fancy being Marcelo's new interpreter? I have heard some people think that he does not get the nuances of what Marcelo really says, particularly in the "Spygate" interview. Do you agree.

2. You say at the U23's games, "who you see and what you hear in the chat going on around" is interesting. Wouldn't that interest "spys" from another club? Actually your not a "spy" from another club are you?

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Jan 2019 10:09:42
Love reading your reviews on U23's Spanish, think it was yourself who mentioned Clarke some time ago if so you have a good eye.

Izzy in for the U-23s along with KP this afternoon.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

14 Jan 2019 15:05:02
2 - 0 win, both goals from Izzy.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Jan 2019 16:59:41
Staffy Call me controversial but I believe Izzy has formed an emotional attachment to the club and his teammates and wants to join permanently. He could prove to be a tremendous asset.

Agree1 0Disagree

14 Jan 2019 17:15:20
He mainly shares the love for KP George.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jan 2019 17:36:39
Don’t think it’s controversial George! We’ve looked after him.

I was watching Rob Price today, he spent time before during and after the game with Izzy and a number of the others. Obvious he has a key relationship with the players recovering.

We talk a lot about investment on here, and it’s clear that we have made a strong investment in key backroom staff that really make a difference. I think that has had an impact on players like Bamford and Brown. The players are being worked hard but also being well looked after.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Jan 2019 18:15:55
I wouldn't have a problem with young Izzy staying George, even though I haven't seen him play, apart from against us :)

Agree0 0Disagree

Phil Hay says Casilla is due for medical in the middle of the week, despite him being on the bench yesterday, all good team, well get our man. MOT.

We are also thinking abouyt a loan deal for Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez. used to be highly thought of a few years back when he was contending to be the Arsenal No1 but it never materialised with Wenger preferring to stick with Szczesny.
