Tenuous link to Leeds. Apparently Massimo sacked the manager of his new club in October, but has now sacked his replacement and replaced him with the guy who he replaced. For all of his faults, Massimo was never going to be accused of being boring.

2 goals and 3 assists in his time at boro. another holding centre midfielder, would he be any better than Phillips, o'kane or viera? . appreciate we need cover short term for viera and o'kane who are both out, time to give klich another go, or do people think he's going?

Klich has burned his bridge. He was badly treated by the club though imo. Best for all parties he is moved on. Expect him to be loaned out to another club right before the deadline.

Agree re his treatment, maybe he will start Saturday if viera is def out.

I am not too fussed about us not going for Martin from Derby. He is supposed to 'guarantee' goals at championship level. If that is the case why are Derby so keen to off load him to a rival. If he's not good enough for Derby he shouldn't be good enough for us. Going for British players is fine but its a worry when we are linked with championship cast offs. I thought Ullua might be a better bet however even if we could afford him his goal record over the past few seasons isn't great. The Preston lad is the obvious choice at the moment but I can't see him coming either. A cast off mid fielder from Middlesborough isn't inspiring either.

Ulloa has not played much in the Premier League to be fair. Good Championship striker.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jan 2018 16:14:34
personally if i was manager i'd get ulloa, did well in prem at first, apprently nigel pearson spoke to his team when they went up and said who do we sign up front they all said ulloa, perfect for this level and exactly what we need

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jan 2018 17:44:31
It looks like Aston Villa have got Ulloa on loan! To slow again, we only get interested in players when it’s to late!

Bear with me, I'm being a little bit more serious than I usually am. I eluded to it just below. Assuming we still have the £15m from Wood and the £5m from Taylor in the bank, why don't we use that to put a bid in for a very good or world class player who's near the end of his contract? OK wages may be a slight stumbling block but even at £250k per week that works out at £6.5m for half a years worth of service. Then if we don't go up this year, potentially sell him for a massive profit (say £50m) in the summer. Would certainly be a massive show of intent from Radz, could be a nice little investment and would show the world of football that we mean business, if we don't go up this season then it could attract the bigger players and a bigger name coach come the end of the season. Flawless strategy, don't you think guys? #stilldrunkafterbirthdaydrinkslastnight

Happy Birthday mate, couple of problems not sure Sanchez will turn down utd and city for us. Also if he is near the end of his contract he would still have to be brought which might still cost a fee. Don't think we should go for Martin as not good enough for derby why would he work for us? there is players out there but can we afford them? I still think the answer is changing the manager but then I always think that

Think radz said wood sale would be reinvestedin team wex. i'm not sure we would have much more than $8 left though

17 Jan 2018 12:11:26
And what happens when people realise we spend near enough 30m in the summer on players fees, have sold wood to put some of this back in his back pocket, spend a couple million on electronic boards, wasted money on dross like grot, lassoga, cbj, lonergan, cibicki, sacko, and don't forget their wages for the last 6 months. assume for all of those an average wage is around 7000 a week, been 5 months since the season started, that's 20 weeks, 140000 per player, so you're looking at 1m rather than this lots wages, on top of transfer fees of a total 4.5m. i wouldn't expect any more signings, and a dreary finish to another 'what could have been' campaign

Think Lucas should apply for Ortas job! Couldn't do any worse and his plan just may pan out.

A free transfer is not free as the player takes a more significant signing on fee

Fulham linked with a £15mill move for Dwight Gayle! That’s a statement of intent to push on for the play offs or automatic. Not some unheard of Sunday league window cleaner who scored 4 in 4 years in the Albanian top flight just because he fits with our wage structure! Sort of getting the feeling we won’t ever get back to the promised land to be honest . It gets harder every year and yet we still refuse to buy proven championship quality. #alongroadbackifweevergetback

Agree4 3Disagree

16 Jan 2018 20:36:21
I’m hoping that we will use the £15m from wood, £5m from Taylor, cbj’s saved wages to put in a sneaky bid and match Man City’s failed bid for Sanchez. #livingthedream 😂👍💙

agree it is hard as every year we get cheery picked. Like wood taylor last year, it is a way of football but it is possible look at Hudds right manager come in and they flew, this year sheff utd and britol are going well, if they can do it then why not us?

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jan 2018 14:50:40
Its all about the foundations Berm - all the clubs you mentioned have been building towards their success for a while, going the right way about recruitment and having faith in managers and the project. i think Radz is trying the same approach but it won't be promotion this season and we may not be as successful as other teams have been - time will tell.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jan 2018 16:17:40
i agree alf. sometimes i get all depressed and see us as playoff musts, however as you say it is about building and since bates has gone we have moved foward miles in terms of planning for future, stadium, squad and not selling out best for peanuts, we still sell players but at least for decent fee now days

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jan 2018 18:33:12
Indirectly Leeds related, but how can Fulham afford to bid £15mill for Gayle, without falling foul of FFP? (Unless they're about to sell sessegnon, and if the media is to be believed) . I just don't get how Championship clubs can fairly finance such deals? Particularly Fulham!

Andrea Radrizzani
✔ Big fan of Radz, but being transparent of our transfer strategy AFTER the window has closed, does not fill me with hope for any imminent signings. “I can see yours and all fans are getting impatient but I am responsible since last June and working hard to make our dream come true 🙏🙏🙏💛💙 @LUFC management will be transparent and clear on market transfer strategy in Q&A session in Feb. all focus on millwall now“

I think a bit has been lost thro his second language. I'm sure that there will be another signing or two, judging by what TC has said, and Radz is just stating that he will explain our policy at the QA in Feb.

Agree1 1Disagree

16 Jan 2018 18:26:35
agree I like rad but would like a big push for a striker as could be the difference, that said he is a smart man, no point saying we need a striker and will be getting one, might be a tactic to get price of striker down and not disappoint if it don't happen? glad all focus is on Wall as I will be fuming if we lose.

There is some cracking posts below, Spanish, bloody brilliant mate, Whiteman and George great answers and Leodis, Leeeds and Bermondsey top men, It’s like Bermondsey said we really have got some great lads on here, honest ones, dreamers, moaners like me and fantasists, but we all love the same thing Leeds United! It would be a great night if we all could meet up and share a few beers, that invitation would be open to all on here apart from Swadlad and yes Wex that includes you pal!

Top post! Personally, that's why I keep coming back. Disagreeing is much more interesting than everyone being of one accord, and patting each other on the back! Like you say, the mighty whites, and our love for them, are what holds us together, and differences of opinion, is just life! On, on, on!

I think we should invite Swadlad mesen. On a big night out there is always someone who talks utter ball hocks, he would fit the bill.

16 Jan 2018 18:22:44
I believe in the south they say "next Friday", as in "the next Friday", so technically accurate for "this Friday", as opposed to "a week on Friday" in the south, or "next Friday" in the north. ?

16 Jan 2018 18:27:41
yeah sorry put post wrong (being dylexic and thick) although DJ is about before and after game on saturday if you can make both, but looking forward pre game warm up on Friday night

looking forward to Saturday with me and a couple of mates down to ER to see the game, although got an awful feeling we will lose. one mate can't make it so got a ticket for sale as he wants to make his money back if possible. Its for the Kop block N6 near the front, pretty sure it is good seat apart from you will be sitting next to three southerners. he wants face value which is 28.00 if possible? also wanted to say thanks to eds for this site, as I have said I don't often get to ER and never really get a chance to mix with leeds fans, but thanks to this site meeting up with Alf on Friday for a few drinks and DJ and his brother on Saturday before and after the game. Really makes me feel closer to the club and helps me feel a part of the match day experience. So really grateful for all the help and looking forward to a good weekend regardless of result! MOT

Think we will win bw. i'm going 4-0. Pontus up front and hat trick. I agree about this site. And the eds. We may all argue and often disagree. But we are all leeds.

{Ed001's Note - to be honest, in the main, this is one of the more agreeable sites. I think in large part down to the work your Leeds editor did (his number escapes me as I know him by his name) when he was around. He was a nice guy so created a nice atmosphere around the site, which Ed003 did well to build on when he was not about. So it is a fairly easy site for the rest of us to look after, very easy in comparison to certain sites that is for sure.

But what really makes it what it is are the characters using it - we have been lucky with some great posters on here. I grudgingly have to include (through gritted teeth) both you Aus and Berm in that, though it pains me to do so!}
