I agree with some regarding Bartley, think the injury a concern and would look elsewhere, also chances gone now Swansea relagated. We do need a experienced CB that we can get a season or two out of, then hope young lads can progress. Not sounding good regarding transfer kitty, are we expecting another 6m payment for wood or is it over the next 10'years? Next season if lucky, be a mid table team, if don't buy CB/ striker, then relagation battle. Think rest of defense could be good and in midfield, we will have to see. Still need a striker though, would berihino be a good buy?

Agree2 Disagree2

11 May 2018 10:49:54
Berahino and gayle could both be good buys. I mentioned it yesterday think Hernandez from hull would be a good option too, you're probably looking at about 5 or 6 million for him as their owners are worse than ours and are a bit crazy. Also think Michael dawson from hull good be a good signing for us, that harry Wilson they've had from Liverpool has been good, 7 goals abd 2 assists in 11 games since January loan, worth a raid imo

11 May 2018 16:52:34
Berahino? the lad hasn't scored for 2 years!

11 May 2018 19:28:40
We can't afford Gayle

11 May 2018 22:37:08
Would love gayle here. Natural finisher at this level. Just can't see him keeping his new teeth for long on a night out in leeds

08 May 2018 20:32:02
All the talk of the youngsters coming through is great and I see the point of getting them playing time last few games. But seriously though if we get two of them good enough for first team we'll be doing well.

Agree8 Disagree4

09 May 2018 17:34:53
I know what your saying Corky, it's a gamble but along with Pearce, O'Connor, BPF I can see at least Shaugnessy and Edmundson playing regularily so it's not such a great stretch of the imagination to see at least two other new young guns featuring most weeks.

09 May 2018 23:59:05
Cork Disagree. 2 is below average. 3 average. 4 good. 5 excellent. We already have 5 in the first team already. BPF, Paudie, RV, Pearce and Edmondson. We need more but we already doing well on that front. Radz strategy is about youth coming through. There's still Hosannah, Rey, Shackleton, Clarke, Machuca, Sarkic, Dalby, Kun T and Wilks to come through. We could have a team and squad in about 15 months.

10 May 2018 10:03:16
3 have already shown they're upto the task. I would expect another 3 from George's list to come good in the next 12 months too. That's a pretty good return imo.

10 May 2018 10:12:52
So are we saying Orta's doing a good job? Only asking.

10 May 2018 13:02:24
Leo As purely a scout unearthing young talent from abroad, yes. I've said this for a couple months now. However, he should not be allowed anywhere near first team recruitment directly. Examples are Wiedwald and Grot. This means his job title requires immediate demotion. Director of football? Having a laugh.

10 May 2018 14:25:22
Who should be in charge of first team recruitment then George

10 May 2018 15:27:18
George I mean good enough for a promotion team. How many of the young lads will play more than 50 league games? O’Leary had a great class of youngsters but getting 5 through at once is not easy.

10 May 2018 17:08:35
Cork You have to play them to find out. We should no longer be pre-occupied with promotion. Our next task is to have a competitive first team and squad. Rest should follow. If worse thing that happens is we get up to 8th position next May but with extra youngsters coming through so be it. I'm hearing Jack Clarke is going to be a player.

10 May 2018 17:11:50
Aus Sadly, Heck. He's the manager. All he really has to do is acquire solid Championship players who combine talent with the necessary physicality. None of this watery airy fairy rubbish like Wiedwald and Grot.

10 May 2018 17:14:48
We could do a lot worse than raid the Wendies for a couple players. They are in trouble financially and with FFP rules.

10 May 2018 18:19:56
Who would you have from them george

10 May 2018 20:32:45
Grot will come good I believe

10 May 2018 21:46:04
Martyn Forestieri Hutchinson Westwood and Winnall once he returns from Derby. Forestieri would be a luxury not really needed because of Saiz and Hernandez but the rest would do nicely.

10 May 2018 22:21:54
They bought a half decent central defender from somewhere Martyn! ? I forget where! ? 😏😱😢

10 May 2018 22:57:01
They did Bright but he was treated fairly poor at Leeds. And mainly by tt the supporters.

11 May 2018 08:50:16
True that Cork!

11 May 2018 10:40:59
Mr Lee's I'm guessing? He was 100% leeds through and through

11 May 2018 11:13:02
Yes I would jump at the chance of signing Bartley, or Huth, or similar but let's not write off the the two who have filled in this year. I have to say that whenever called upon Shaugnessy, then O'Connor, have answered the call admirably. If they are mentored by some of the more senior players then the answer to our problems may already be on the payroll. This is without even looking at Struijk, Halme and Diaz. Again, wouldn't complain about the inclusion of an old head, man mountain, CB but I don't think we are in such a deep hole as some would think.

08 May 2018 13:02:34
Ins: BPF, Miazek, lnergan, hadbad spell and he was pretty good when he first came into the team) Ayling, Hosannah, Jansson, Oconnor, Struijk, Diaz, Rey, Pearce, Berardi, Denton, Forshaw, Vieira, phillips, shaugnessy, ideguchi, klich, dallas, Hernandez, alioski, roofe struijk, diaz, Clarke, machuca, Edmondson, dalby, gomes, nicell, shackelton, Roberts.

Outs: Felix, cooper, okane, cibicki, sacko, lasogga, ekuban, saiz (be good to get 8-10m from wolves for him) anita, buoy, de bock, ty much everyone who I've slated this year bar roofe. I see roofe staying as hecky likes him and he is the only front line player we have on the books who you could expect to score.

Transfer ins: New GK, speroni perhaps on a free, brad jones or danny ward from Liverpool would also be good imo. New CB, liam moore would be ideal, expensive but a good option, also think liam Lindsay would do well, that bednarek at Southampton also looks good, and at 22 a loan might do him some good. I have a feeling barts could be swayed.

If he was to sign a 2/3 year deal with the club after work from ailing this summer, I think that sends a message out from radz. New LB, all the while I think Pearce is able, he gets injured and we are very light in LB, de bock can go for me. Dentons there but again you need experience, Fabio seems short of games at boro, might be worth a couple million quid?

I actually think were ok for central midfield, klich saying he has unfinished business at leeds is positive for me, him and Forshaw could teach Vieira a lot and I like phillips too. you need 2 wingers at least in my opinion, its great playing dallas and Hernandez there but Hernandez won't see out the end of his contract if you carry on playing him there, he needs to be in that number 10 for me.

leko at west brom looks interesting, brownhill also a good option as Bristol have faded towards the end of the year. oztumer and dack would also be good to get in if possible from league 1, and josh morris from scunny. I have no idea where you start with a striker, don't think mbakogu is the answer, and I don't think you should overload on new strikers but we need someone proven in this league. Hernandez at hull out of contract this year, would be an icredible signing, they love him at hull (I'm from hull unfortunately).

overall you're looking at 15m spending, and for getting rid of that lot (if you can get rid of it all) you're probably talking 15 million back including saiz. then it sup to radz how much further you want to go to ensure play offs. I think itll be another busy summer though.

Agree4 Disagree4

08 May 2018 14:13:34
I can see where you're coming from on all points there Samo; an interesting post, and believe you're right that it will be a hectic summer of ins and outs, both sales, and purchases, as well as loans in both directions.

08 May 2018 16:42:48
A hectic summer of outs if Orta can work some magic. As for ins, not too sure. With a limited budget, going for quality and the threatened emergence of 2 or 3 young guns I can't see a large influx but 3 or 4 marquee signings will keep me more than happy. Either way/ some way I can see a very different squad starting next season, than finished this.

08 May 2018 17:47:09
It depends on what this "limited" budget is . M and M from posh, Barts, should be around £15M or so . some of the young guns stepping up now n again, an experienced keeper on a free and I reckon that'll just about do it, of course Eleven Sports might decide to invest some extra cash as well ;)

08 May 2018 11:32:29
Radrizziani! I hold you responsible! Has anyone dug a bit deeper in all these rumors sites! It should be made known that the only source for Orta's alleged candidacy for the Deportivo job was his former employer CeroOnda. Heck it out for yourselves! Convenient being that he was being considered to be let go. No one at Deportivo can verify if the job offer was ever offered to Orta informally or otherwise. Fake News probably propaganda from Orta to keep his job. Is''t there a serious sports journalist out there who could uncover him for the fraud that he is! We need a a stronger President!

Agree1 Disagree8

09 May 2018 20:00:54
tg66 your spot on. Can’t understand why anyone would put thumbs down on this post, the truth always seems to get then going, but that can’t deny it or give any evidence to prove you wrong, great post mate,

07 May 2018 13:47:00
Summer signings and offloads:

GK: Out. Lonergan and Wieldwald. In a free agent backup veteran on 1-year deal. Huffer and/or Miazek could well be ready in another season.

DEF: Out Pennington. Has not shown anything to warrant permanent deal. Cooper. Not worth the captain's armband and horrible defender in general. IN Bartley. Was there any doubt? Needs to happen. Ayling on the right Pearce on the left. Liam Lindsay from Barnsley as backup. Struijk / Halme hopefully pushing.

MID: Forshaw and Vieira should start centrally. O'Kane out. Phillips 50/50. Hernandez playing home games only (goes missing too often away) Will we still have Saiz? If the right offer made for him I'd let him go. Sacko out. Contrary to some opinions I would keep a fit Dallas. He does work hard and with confidence is actually a CH quality player. Need a pacy winger with crossing potential. Anita I'm torn over. He surely can't have been that bad a player to get in that Newcastle team. I think maybe its a case of playing him out of position too often tho can't deny a poor season. I'm very interested to see what we do with Klich too.

ST: Bu-bye lassogga. Also goodbye Ekuban and Grot. Antonsson out. Roberts hopefully playing well on injury return. Edmondson Dalby, Clarke and Sarkic to play much more. Need an experienced peak career striker to lead these lads and

Agree2 Disagree5

07 May 2018 19:10:12
Anntonson has had a great season at Blackburn so why bin him? It's like a lot of our team there playing out of their natural positions week in week out

07 May 2018 19:24:14
7 goals in 18 league games in league 1 ? Not sure it warrants a great season bud but I think we should give him another crack at it next season

07 May 2018 20:48:45
Getting promoted. There fans love and want to keep him and from what I saw of them they would have beaten us easily this season mighty

07 May 2018 21:36:14
Surprised you did not include O'Connor and Shaughnessy in defence even as backup. Thought they both did well when they played

08 May 2018 01:02:41
No mention of Pontus

08 May 2018 16:59:41
Basically agree with most of you post but you could, in theory, put out a whole different back four; Coyle, Shaugnessy, O'Connor, Denton. In MF we could have a look at Ideguchi, Machuca, Rey. Upfront there is a big decision to be made, with a plethora of young strikers and an outcry for a new purchase. Which way does he go. Hopefully one player will stand out in these next two games, score two hattricks and scotch all calls for a new signing.

06 May 2018 16:18:39
Thank the lord its over. Out. - Orta. Wiedwald, Cooper, Phillips, Alioski, Ekuban, Sacko, O'kane, Lonergan, Cibicki, Grot, Pennington, Lassogga, Anita, Dallas. Think that's it. Get some players in who have some ability and heart because this lot do not!

Agree5 Disagree16

09 May 2018 03:47:14
Agree with all of these Creek67, but I would also add Berardi, a total liability with very limited ability.

05 May 2018 03:28:39
Mo Eisa striker from Cheltenham is on our radar. League 2 unproven at this level so probably smith truth in it.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 May 2018 08:15:32
If it's true another potential signing that doesn't get the pulse racing. Radz won't boost his season ticket sales with this sort of news.

05 May 2018 08:45:34
Said before signings should be made to improve the team, doubt anyone we have been linked with so far will. We have Roberts, Dalby, Sarkic, Edmondson all young talented yet unproven strikers, why do we need another one.

05 May 2018 10:59:41
I’d urge everybody not to buy a season ticket. The less that see us relegated the better! 🤣🤣

05 May 2018 16:44:52
Ausman with you on that no ticket for the next 4 season.

06 May 2018 22:54:15
Mr Whiteman like you I’m out and not wasting my money!

09 May 2018 20:06:59
Mikewoody fully understand that mate, Radz and rat bottom are no good for Leeds, can’t see any investment coming forward, just hope I am wrong, but I will not change my mind until Rat bottom is gone,

04 May 2018 23:59:34
Lads we missed the boat a couple of years back not getting Chris Hughton. My kind of manager.

Agree8 Disagree0

05 May 2018 11:00:41
Ah. Those were der days. When de boat com in!

05 May 2018 16:45:47
Corkwhite have to say your right on that one,

06 May 2018 19:52:52
Well blow me down with a feather. I knew I’d be right one day Whiteman!

03 May 2018 14:16:01
We are in talks to sign winger Gavin Whyte from Irish Premiership champions Crusaders. Scored 21 league goals this season and won Ulster's player of the year this season. He is 22 - possibly OFTF?

Agree3 Disagree0

03 May 2018 14:33:23
Yeah. Can’t wait!

03 May 2018 15:24:30
Wow looks like a statement of intent eh. Only the best for us eh Mr radz

03 May 2018 16:38:59
being from northern Ireland, I can say gavin is best player by long way over here I wouldn't write him off plays for same club team Dallas came from Crusaders

03 May 2018 16:54:55
Last Whyte we had was class

03 May 2018 17:27:29
It didn't hurt Randy Crawford being with them! One for the youngsters there. 😁

03 May 2018 17:29:28
Wee lads a smasher way better than Dallas was before Brentford signed him whether he's good enough for now is another thing kids only playing part time football at the minute

03 May 2018 18:29:04
Last whyte we had George was a bit patchy 😋

03 May 2018 18:32:34
There alright saying he scored 21 goals in 43 games this season but he only scored 5 goals in his other 67 games previous to that in the tin pot league. Celtic and Everton took him on trial and sent him back

03 May 2018 21:15:56
Martyn :) nice one

03 May 2018 21:16:34
Danum, hope the lad's got some (street) life in him

03 May 2018 21:14:53
Yes he was Mart. Amusing. He and other Chris could defend. Good old days.

04 May 2018 07:48:31
Danum, Didn't he score in a European game? Can't remember who against but it was a rainy night in Georgia!

04 May 2018 08:48:29
Fairclough and whyte great partnership

04 May 2018 15:11:52
Brilliant defenders.

04 May 2018 23:46:36
1 thing I would say is he's head and shoulders better than the boy smith qpr got from linfield

04 May 2018 23:53:29
Absolute classic line big man. Well said as well George. Chris used to be a client of mine and an proper gent he was too.

04 May 2018 23:55:25
What was the ole joke ? His barnet was like Headinley wicket!

06 May 2018 22:36:33
We used to call him ash tray head

02 May 2018 13:27:32
Radz company, Eleven Sports, have won the rights to broadcast La Liga in the UK for the next 3 years.
