Exciting times at Elland Road with 272 new signings, or threabouts it seems. Just hope TC can massage all the egos. Unless we can convince the FL to let us put more than 11 on the field at a time, there will be some coming on board who will struggle to make the bench let alone the starting 11. Still, this is a better problem than we experienced at the tail end of last season where we had a small group of overused, tired and jaded players struggling to keep up. All good. Onwards and upwards. MOT.

Maybe that's the thing kiwi, perhaps they don't have egos. Perhaps that's part of what we now look for on players. team players, young and hungry

31 Aug 2017 23:15:24
Well, all players at this level have egos or they wouldn't have risen to where they are and I suspect they have been attracted with promises of things to come. Having said that, I tend to agree with you and hope that we are building a champion team which will always beat a team of champions.

31 Aug 2017 23:46:45
Agree cura. Good times ahead. ⚽️⚽️👍😃

01 Sep 2017 00:12:04
Well all the ones that we signed and have played so far seem like they just wanna get there heads down and play for the team. Hopefully the ones who have signed since the forest game have the same mentality.

01 Sep 2017 11:48:35
TC has the tools to do the job, with the squad we have there is no excuse for anything less than the play offs. The players need to know they have come to a big club, it is their job to perform and get in the team, not want a cuddle if they are on the bench. The competition for places is going to be fierce which is what is needed for success. It Is going to be a great season! ALAW

Not sure about the reasons for the thumbs down for some of the comments above. They are valid opinions from passionate fans. Should be commended not condemned.

30 Aug 2017 23:08:47
CIBICKI gets number 22 shirt think this could be a very very good season for LEEDS. The attacking pace of SAIZ. ALIOSKI. GROT. ROOFE CiBICKI. LASOGGA. EKUBAN. I can see Leeds scoring a hell of a lot of goals this season happy times again for all us lufc supporters can't wait for Burton game. MOT ⚽⚽⚽👍. ALAW

I genuinely know a lad (albeit on xbox) that is a Swedish Malmo fam and he reckons cibicki is awful. Guess we will soon find out

31 Aug 2017 10:12:45
Lasogga not had the best of write -ups either, I will always give them a chance, anyone know what we are doing with Sacko !

31 Aug 2017 10:24:48
I think you have to give some credit to our recruitment to date. We are picking up players cheaper precisely because they are not on everyone's radars, but we see some potential. Look at Alioski and Saiz compared with what is being paid for prem and championship players. The strikers are going to get opportunities so it's down to them to make the most of them and look at what we've done so far without them! On Sacko, surprised he hasn't gone out on a loan to get some game time. Last time I saw him at Elland road he seemed totally lacking in confidence and belief, complete contrast to Alioski.

31 Aug 2017 10:35:50
Love the way our new signings are being written off already by some. True some might say antonsson was a dud and these may be the same but got to trust in our new regime s recruitment to date. Let's give the new lads a chance, we don't need premadonas we need honest team players.

31 Aug 2017 11:04:45
I'm not writing them off at all. Just saying what I was told by a chap who watches him every other week. Grot looks good and keen. I think the recruitment has been fantastic. Cibiki looks the weakest of them is all and I don't think he's going to pull up trees. I'd have given antonson another season here rather than spend more money on another untested method. Would love to see helander sign before midnight

31 Aug 2017 12:04:21
Cibicki looked at by a number of big European clubs, must have been a reason for the interest so i'm optimistic. Did see something with a coach commenting that he was more likely to be a success than Antonsson has been due to a higher level of technical ability.

31 Aug 2017 13:54:52
Well let's hope so. The lad in Sweden said he was gutted they didn't sign antonnson this summer. Guess it's all about perspective and knowing your respective league.

01 Sep 2017 16:02:10
ERM lasogga has no pace

03 Sep 2017 11:25:02
ERM and wood had loads of pace ?

05 Sep 2017 14:17:39
Didn't say that did I? He said Leeds are full of pace and listed lasogga who is slower than wood and wood was slow himself.

30 Aug 2017 15:31:45
George Hirst being linked from wendies as he was last February, but Leicester have bid £2 million.

Agree5 Disagree4

31 Aug 2017 01:12:51
Can't see them selling

29 Aug 2017 22:10:21
If it is confirmed that we've signed this Hamburg lad, then I wouldn't be surprised if that's not our business done for this window. Rads did say all of burnleys £22m million they kindly gave Us for wood and Taylor would go back into the squad, but he didn't say this window. They seem sensible and maybe they'll keep the vast majority of the money for January and use it wisely on what is needed then.

Agree2 Disagree3

29 Aug 2017 22:20:47
Why not put some into the academy? I'd rather develop our own stars than overpay for average English players.

30 Aug 2017 03:39:25
Pretty sure he's already putting money into the academy.

30 Aug 2017 13:53:19
I think Cibicki will be the last piece of business. Lasogga will already cost us around £2million in wages so even though its a loan its not without cost. Cibicki for about 1.5mill, already paid £1.5 (eventually) for Grot and save the rest for another time. 3 players for less than the price of one.

31 Aug 2017 03:26:38
I don't think there will be a single leeds fan that isn't now glad our striker has gone. What a cracking bit of business. 3 players and half of ER for him. It makes you laugh really.

29 Aug 2017 20:09:15
Lassoga has joined on a season long loan according to some sources.

Agree2 Disagree2

30 Aug 2017 18:05:17
Is that confirmed Al

31 Aug 2017 07:31:33
announcement expected today

29 Aug 2017 18:03:57
Ekuban rumoured to be out for a lengthy spell after having to have a foot operation so now we do need a new striker! And just for once it will an exciting transfer deadline for us Leeds fans! MOT

Agree6 Disagree1

29 Aug 2017 20:06:00
Really bad news - gutted.

29 Aug 2017 16:53:52
Not used to all these positives since early 2000's. But can't help thinking if a club like Palace or West Ham or one of them sack their manager and have millions to spend to keep them safe from relegation, they will just look at the poor relations in the Championship and take who they want. because they can. I know TC is contracted but these Prem clubs have money to buy out contracts. Just being cautious as being kicked in the guts is how us Leeds fans live.

Agree3 Disagree2

29 Aug 2017 17:25:02
Octo I get where you're coming from, but for
Me TC is a different breed and so is Rads. I think they're both in it for the long haul and share the vision and dream.

29 Aug 2017 17:51:03
Thing is, you can't just take TC, you have to take the whole backroom staff including Bravo and Orta. I don't see him leaving, he doesn't seem like the type to walk away and he was really keen to come here.

29 Aug 2017 17:59:08
I'm with you on that one Curahee, Radz is to smart and TC seems very committed and like I said in a previous post he celebrates when we score so his heart is with us, for the first time in a long time we are building for the future and anyone who comes in Radz will make sure they buy into it. MOT

29 Aug 2017 18:02:43
Think you're right Octo, but am in agreement with Cura on this one. Reckon there will be all sorts of clauses in TC's contract too for loyalty, and like Cura says, I think we are onto something different with these guys.

29 Aug 2017 18:46:21
Despite his European pedigree, both playing and managing, TC was a bit of a punt (but, I guess all Championship managers are, to a degree - what with the nature of the league) so, I don't really see a solid Premier League team coming calling just yet. Potentially next season (provided we have a fairly good one) could see some top flight oppo come calling. That said, I do trust him and the board to make the right decisions.

29 Aug 2017 18:58:09
I think Palace would be more likely to get Colin or Fat Sam back.

29 Aug 2017 19:08:16
Apparently West Ham want Benitez and Newcastle would never go for TC. theyd go for someone they have to pay much more money to for poorer results than TC. So maybe even very terribles for them then! 😂

28 Aug 2017 23:23:43
Newcastle willing to sell Dwight Gayle to get some cash to add new players ! He would certainly fit our style off play. Quick and knows where the net is. ⚽️⚽️👍😃

Agree8 Disagree4

29 Aug 2017 03:35:19
Can't stand the little idiot.

29 Aug 2017 09:06:30
I am not keen on him either, but I think he would add to our goal tally.

29 Aug 2017 09:47:20
I don't like him either, but with suiz and alo behind him I think he'd be brilliant. Quick, skilful, makes intelligent runs which can be picked out. No brainier for me. It has to be him if we're are looking for an expensive signing.

29 Aug 2017 10:45:51
He's a knob but a talented knob, one of them players you hate when he's playing against you but love when it's for you.

29 Aug 2017 11:56:52
If he's so good, why do Newcastle want to sell?

29 Aug 2017 12:09:19
Exactly SG, he only scored 22 goals last season, who wants that goal return in your team.

29 Aug 2017 12:48:17
He is excellent at this level, but I'm still confident in my source that Ings will be a loan .

29 Aug 2017 13:36:18
oh was that an actual source dogwise? from your post it just sounded like you were chatting to a random person.

29 Aug 2017 13:37:00
18mill for Gayle apparently. I think i'd keep the cash particularly as Gayle can be an injury worry.

29 Aug 2017 13:49:31
THought toon needed to sell! now surely £18m for a player who's great in the second division but can't get in their team in the top division is sort of pricing him out of all moves.

29 Aug 2017 14:29:58
That's my point Cura. You spend £18m on him, it's a huge gamble financially if you don't go up or if you do, you need to spend even more on a better striker and it becomes a waste of money.

29 Aug 2017 14:31:09
Newcastle spent £70m on Championship players, but now they can't afford PL players because of it and will struggle. You have to sign players who are good enough to get you up and play in PL. For £18m, Gayle is a rip off.

29 Aug 2017 14:31:59
How many goals did Gayle create for himself? If he's just finishing off team moves, then it's the creative players who got Newcastle up.

29 Aug 2017 14:50:56
Totally agree sg. if he's only good enough for the championship then clearly no prem team is going to go for him, therefore that leaves the championship teams. none of those can afford £18m for one player without going over FFP rules, so it's just a brainless bit of business from Newcastle. £10m perhaps up to £12m, but £18m is just crazy

29 Aug 2017 17:14:42
Al the guy is involved with Liverpool u23 and he said they will look to put him out on loan for games . They don't want him as back up or bench warming so he said Leeds looked a good option as we had sold our main striker. He does not make the decisions and has no power as such but to mention as in particular seemed strange to me.

29 Aug 2017 17:20:36
yes but does it not show that Championship players will not always cut it, and clubs like them buy there way back to Prem with an excellent chanp squad . Taylor and Bryam left and are not getting real game time,3-4 games without scoring Wood will be the same . You either need a strong team who play for club and each other or need to buy very well.

29 Aug 2017 20:08:06
Cartoon army apparently willing to accept a 'cut price' £10m now

29 Aug 2017 22:39:11
Gayle looks like he is on his way to Fulham 15 mil bid excepted.

28 Aug 2017 21:52:38
Well it looks like we could be set to sign danny ings on loan with a bit of luck. hope we do because lasogga looking likely to go to villa. but clibici expected to sign before Thursday. Just hope we don't pay 8.million for wells then we bring in a striker in January to mount a charge for top 2 finish. mot

Agree0 Disagree1

29 Aug 2017 01:27:07
Most reports state that Lassoga is all but done to sign for Leeds, however, I think ings is mostly paper talk.

29 Aug 2017 02:46:49
I agree with you Delboy. Ings good player but I believe the German is more of what we need variety wise. I can see him helping Grot mature.

28 Aug 2017 18:54:56
Ex -wife from Liverpool been chatting to some one who we both knew and he has told me Ings played u23 and is available on loan but must get decent game time, we are front runners having sold Wood .
