Why are we still seem to be chasing a midfielder? Or rather, why the hell did we not have a look at Ideguchi last season. Why in heavens name not drag him back from a total waste of time in Spain or even play him in Burma. Either way, if we knew what we have already we may not need to be chasing a any new midfielder, we already have a new midfielder. I suppose I am really posting a thorough frustration with the criminal decision to leave him to rot on the bench in Spain. I just hope that he plays in all Japans WC games and gets MOTM in all of them. I feel so sorry for the way he has been treated. We have a lot of making up to do.

I think we should make a significant move before the start of the World Cup, which gives us 4 weeks to nail down a marquee signing.

Friends. Country men and leeds fans worldwide. I speak to you tonight as top number 1 most important poster god like superhero of the year. I am thankful to my fellow voters and firmly believe it was a deserved victory. I have definitely been right all year. We will face hard times ahead, it is important we stick together as brothers from all over the world, with a common goal. The promised land known as the premier league may seem far far away but let's keep hope. Don't leave bright standing alone. With a small amount of luck and a couple of car crashes we could've rid of the under performers and bring in what is needed to succeed. Success to me is two wins in a row at the moment. I will always be positive and am happy to be your leader! I am defending my title with vigour this year and you will all be happy too know I'm planning on at least 3-5 post every day. Thank you people for seeing sense and my votes. King steve

Thank you Aussie for your show of gratitude and endless humility. Your posts are an absolute dream to read, most uplifting and extremely in depth and accurate. I must add that there’s a huge debt owing to the Ed’s who between them have made the Aus to English translator work a dream. Without them you’d be still speaking tripe 😂

{Ed001's Note - I think the big question should be - is any site where Aus is the best poster worth continuing with? I am beginning to question whether my whole existence is futile now.....It reminds me of the old argument, when I was a kid and my parents would argue over whether I was an accident or a mistake.}

Great performance by Josh, echo your sentiment Martyn re our players. Selby may have been a good champion but he showed little respect to Josh Warrington and got what he deserved. No way on this earth was the result anywhere a split decision, the judge needs investigating, very dubious decision.

Absolutely with you on that Brightwhite, mega crap Saturday, my bird don’t want to go out because the wedding wedding of the year is on every bloody channel, the football is as you say a no no because of the two most hated teams playing, Castleford are stuffing Leeds at Rugby League so it’s Britain’s Got No Talent I suppose!

Just back from one of Mr Ortas ‘Rose tinted retreats’ great break mainly youngsters there from all over the world. Anyway in the daily meditation we were reminded whilst chanting our daily affirmations; 1) It’s a FIVE YEAR plan
2) End of next season it’s not even half way
3) we’ve bought the ground back
4) it’s a FIVE YEAR plan
5) GFH nearly paid of now
6) Radz was the ONLY buyer for MC
7) As GFH were the ONLY buyer before
8) Oh and it’s a FIVE YEAR Plan
9) BPF and TP have broken through this year
10) Oh nearly forgot it’s a FIVE YEAR plan I know this is tongue firmly in cheek, but this retreat (brainwashing) has helped me to come to terms in the absence of new investment (Mmmmm) the PLAN was always to buy youth blooding two/three a year until year five. All run as a profitable business (bottom line not heart or passion) So peace to all but don’t expect miracles or expensive signings. it’s not in the plan !

Agree5 0Disagree

19 May 2018 19:12:09
The thing about a long term plan is that you expect progress each year. The only thing we've progressed towards this season, is League 1

Agree2 0Disagree

19 May 2018 19:19:25
Class Tell us something we don't know. Next season will be another of mediocrity although with the right signings can see us pushing up to 8th spot in the league. The year after we should be up there. Balance sheet will look better and we may attract superior investment. 2021 could be our year!

Agree5 2Disagree

19 May 2018 19:33:33
Speedy You're right but it'll be better next season. We had to pay off GFH and that hampered the transfer budget. I believe we can re-acquire Bartley and nurse him back to health. I also see us going very close with Abel. Can also see us finally getting Stockdale. Those 3 signings make us stronger if they happen and there's more to come I'm sure.

Agree5 1Disagree

19 May 2018 19:55:17
The tongue in cheek was your clue George. However, whilst we all want it yesterday me included. I’m simply stating (contrary to the majority of posts for next year) that the evidence points to the fact that in the absence of some serious investors we are in the long haul game. For myself, if that means a team of the like of BPF and TP I’ll be very happy. albeit eventually. No more silly than saying get him out get the manager out when the current owner has said from the outset it’s a long term plan probably based on the pretty rubbish circumstances he inherited. Still just a point of view

Agree2 0Disagree

A few years ago, Blackburn made a 5 year plan to culminate with winning the Champions League. I suppose being promoted from League 1 in year 4 is a belated start.

20 May 2018 10:18:08
I think the club was improving quite nicely before Radz got involved so not sure what rubbish circumstances you refer to Class. Radz bought the ground, which was going to happen anyway as buy back clause was running out. Orta has bought a lot of youngsters, which we usually find anyway, Clarke, Dalby, Edmonson would have been on our radar anyway. Think Cellino did a good job at turning this club around all Radz had to do was improve the first team squad, which he has not done yet. As i have said the summer will see if we have owners who want to go for gold or the premiership.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 May 2018 10:54:26
Hi Bige, the circumstances (which Radz knew full well but still saw a potential profitable business) were apart from buying from MC normal, the significant GFH payments, the high outgoings of renting Thorpe Arch and ER. And it’s too simplistic to say buy back clause was running out he still had to lay out significant capital that he probably wished he could have spent it elsewhere. Again with the youngsters he or Orta have found you’re absolutely right that could have happened anyway. However, if they can’t have the credit they can’t have the criticism for finding them. I’ve supported the Team for 47 years I don’t want to wait another x years! What I’m highlighting is we have what we have, and I truly don’t think Radz worries too much what people think of him, as the recent tour has shown. He’s a very astute very successful businessman but no billionaire. So we are just one of many businesses he owns all of which he wants to be successful. But like his recent Spanish La Liga rights deal he’s a man who is prepared to wait for the opportunity. Again I don’t like it, I don’t want to wait, if a billionaire came in now with funds to burn then bye bye Radz don’t let the door hit you on the way out. So in the interim, I’m hoping with my heart for more Forshaw type buys but my head says it’s likely to be lower than that with more youngsters being blooded.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 May 2018 12:13:21
Not knocking Radz at the moment, said i will wait until transfers are finished. My point was the debts had been restructured by Cellino and we were on a sound financial footing. The fact Aser bought us sort of proves that with the amount they were willing to pay. They did not buy us because they love Leeds and always wanted to own us. Yes they are paying GFH as anyone would be, Thorpe arch is still there. ER would have been bought back under any owner as it is an integral part of the club. Yes Radz is doing well on the business front so let's see how much he can raise this window to get some one in who will make a difference.

Come on RADs, time to step up and become a lufc hero, can still happen. Good start by signing Pearce and think u could be lucky having found a few young ones this season. The likes of BPF, Pearce, O'Connor, Edmonson etc, they may well save u big cash? Next on the cards, sign a GK to help/cover Farrell, I would be impressed if went for stockdale, Leeds lad and still a few years in him. Make Pontus happy and sign quality CB (Bartley/flint) type and with ailing, Coyle, Pearce and Denton, back line looking strong. Midfield of saiz, Pablo, Forshaw, vieira, Klich, Ideguchi and possible emergence of Rey. Still feel need 2 more for middle of park, a pacey winger and another combative type. Then splash big on a forward, Hernandez would be great, but will take a decent wage to snare and with Roberts to hopefully become fit and possibly Dalby, Clarke or Edmondson to progress. Think we stuck with Hecky, not happy but can't see Rads changing now, if was going to change, would have happened already. So bring in some quality and see what he can do with them. We were top after 12 games and can happen again but it needs investment, if not then sell club on, up to you!

Good post Shadwell, just to add if I can, get rid of the dead wood if possible, in my opinion they are: Anita, Beradi, O'Kane, Cooper, Dallas, Philips, Ekuban, Lonegran, Cibiki, De Block, and any others I have missed.
