$3.1mill? Mbakugu deal done they say. Bargain? 😃

Carpi will be laughing there socks off

2.) 15 May 2018 07:09:57
Taxi for orta

3.) 15 May 2018 07:32:19
Capri might be Martyn, but we aren't.

4.) 15 May 2018 08:39:57
Expect more if the same LUFCfev it's going to be a rollercoaster ride this summer. Feels like groundhog day

5.) 15 May 2018 09:11:42
Too right about Groundhog Day ffs. When will they learn. Utter morons. Could of picked up a free agent and paid him $50k a week.

6.) 15 May 2018 09:32:39
I understand everyone's thoughts, and tend to agree to be honest, but it's not the lads fault, so let's give him a chance before destroying him, and support him. Not many had heard much of Lucas when we signed him either.

7.) 15 May 2018 09:39:43
Or wilekdward. Inspired that was.

8.) 15 May 2018 13:57:45
might turn out to be the new Yeboah

9.) 15 May 2018 16:52:55
I think Aussie should have used a much bigger question mark altho I hear what your saying Brighty. Lets's reseRve judgment it's just his CV doesn't look too clever.

10.) 15 May 2018 17:32:59
Or the new ekuban alf

11.) 15 May 2018 22:21:53
Exactly Martyn, and Alf. we just don't know til we see 'em

12.) 16 May 2018 12:46:59
We can guess though bright. Let’s be honest mate. What are the odds of him being a Yeboah with Orta scouting?



12 Feb 2018 01:01:49
Good morning lads. Just watched the game. Did bussleton jetty swim at the weekend so unable to watch live. A slight improvement from us i thought. We played semi well for a few bits of the game. Few iffy ref decisions. Prob deserved the draw. Quite a lot of improving still needed but we had more passion and whole team put effort in. Lacking in quality in few areas and roofe, sacko, okane, phillips don't seem to have the ability needed. Hopefully viera regains his mojo. Saiz to come back and tyler lass and eukaba to fight it out for frontline. Optimistic without being completely happy.


1.) 12 Feb 2018 13:47:14
how did your swim go Aus? How far was it?

2.) 12 Feb 2018 22:56:56
Its a long jetty alf. Ha ha. From beach. Round jetty to beach finish is 3.7km. Bit choppy for a while. First go at it. 1 hr 22 min. Well chuffed with the time. Would jave been happy with 1 hr 45 lol.

3.) 13 Feb 2018 08:49:13
Quicker than it takes lassy to get from box to box



09 Feb 2018 00:41:59
Think lassoga is a luxury we can't afford atm. For the amount of touches he has during a match and the little he does with them i'd use him as a last 15min sub at best. Hoping new boy shines with roofe or eukaba and we don't have to use lassoga at all. Way over rated.


1.) 09 Feb 2018 07:28:52
Perhaps Hecky will be able to get more out of him. I believe Lasogga could be a player if he starts to use his size to bully defenders a bit more - that's what i would be looking to coach into him. Roberts unlikely to start based on the press conference comments yesterday but could be on the bench. Hecky has been an admirer of Roberts so I daresay he has a few ideas of how he would like to play him which could be very tasty.

2.) 09 Feb 2018 07:39:23
He is Aus, maybe PH can get something out of him TC couldn't, afraid he's our 'best' option till Ekuban is fully fit.

3.) 10 Feb 2018 13:44:23
Good post as usual Aus. Your normal service has resumed.

4.) 10 Feb 2018 15:25:17
One of his better games today. Led the line well. Won a few headers for once, and held the ball up well. Great finish for our goal after great work from Pablo.



07 Feb 2018 00:26:58
Im in the, give the guy a chance camp. He has come in at a difficult time. i'd like at least a point from sheffield, but he has a seriously diminished squad. Hoping he goes for a bit of pace up front. Give tyler a chance. Rest alioski for dallas. Drops lassoga. Put eukaba back in if fit. can't really judge him at least until he has pontus, berahdi and saiz back.

In the meantime i'm hoping he has a good look at potential benchers from u23s. Our defense is short of a picnic atm so best form of defense is attack. Hard fast constant flows of attack. Over to you pauly! In regards to leeds comments when he was a lad. Grow up boys. Sticks and stones He will be chuffed to be given this opp and will work his socks off.

Oh and it worked last time so, ORTA OUT!


1.) 07 Feb 2018 01:12:43
Any post that says Orta OUT gets a thumbs up from me!

2.) 07 Feb 2018 02:50:48
I've been having a wee think. Not usual for me, I know, but nevertheless. Let's say, for argument's sake, that we have a quick and pronounced turnaround in fortune. Does that mean that our players are the goods and Orta was right all along and his vision was only sullied by TC's ineptitude. Don't know. I'm not saying this is the case but it is an interesting thought.

3.) 07 Feb 2018 06:07:47
If pauly turns our fortunes round using a lot of ortas signinings then humble pie mabe on the menu. But me thinks not!

4.) 07 Feb 2018 06:17:27
I'm inclined to agree with you, Ausman. Still, food for thought.

5.) 07 Feb 2018 08:17:15
Interesting Kiwi i like your thinking. Fans have been getting there backs up a lot with orta and maybe orta is sticking by his recruitment in saying well it sthe manager who isn't playing them right so he has to go. Really could see a 442 this weekend, and praying or grot to come good, grot and roberts could be lethal in a few years, just hope they both get used. i'm also sick of the 4231 now i think its boring and expected from leeds, let's mix it up, a 433 with an attaching midfielder maybe, perhaps you coudl have forshaw and vieira sitting with phillips supporting the striker, to wide men hugging the touchline, dallas was excellent in that second half, really impressed me he's something we've missed. hernandez cutting in from the left and whipping balls in. i'm really optimistic about this team again. I was always on the TC in bandwagon and keeping him for the season but I went to ER on saturday, and hull on tuesday, and both performances showed no clinical edge that we've had when saiz was available, and a lot fo what monk showed last year with wood up top. Since losing kyle bartley, jansson has gone quiet and hasn't had as good of a season, but that doesn't mean he can't turn it maybe a brutal manager is what we need. This man knows leeds and knows what they're about having had such a close link with them as a barnsley fan, manager, player, wednesday player, and seeing them in the championship for so long, i don't think you could have hired anybody more relevant that's got years ahead of him. The 18 month contract thing, i think that's a statement from him to say, if i can't get you up by then, ill go i'm not right for this, bt give me a full season in charge with my own recruits ill show you what i can do. I like this bloke, and i think he just may be a miracle.

6.) 07 Feb 2018 09:18:20
The problem with 442 or 433 is the midfield battle - with only 3 or 4 in there we can lose the battle and that is vital to the whole game. therefore 5 in the middle makes sense so that we can supply the forwards and help the defence. with that in mind and our depleted squad to consider I would be tempted (as another poster said yesterday i think) to play a 3-5-2. De Bock on the left side, Pennington in the middle and Anita on the right. Utilise Dallas as wing back on the left and Alioski on the right. middle three of Hernandez, Forshaw and Viera in the middle and a front two of any combination of Roberts, Roofe or Lasogga.

7.) 07 Feb 2018 09:19:21
Didn't Jansson get player of the month last month Samo? Return to form i would say?

8.) 07 Feb 2018 10:24:23
The 352 sounds appealing and i think jansson may be back fit so would be a better option than anita. Alioski works hard to track back, and I'd probably play him like you say, question is, where does this formation leave berardi, ayling, saiz, cooper, ekuban, when all fit and not suspended, suppose it enables us to have a really good bench. If i were to play a 352, and considering this a championship team again next season, i'd have wied, (think paul will bring in someone like bentley from brentford) jansson, ayling, berardi, dallas and de bock as wing backs, 2 holding being vieira and forshaw, hernandez as number 10, then saiz and roberts up top. However, i think the 3421 would better suit us, with hernandez, saiz, and roberts as the front 3, with dallas and de bock on the wings. I think alf got POTM in december yes alf but everyone knows he was a better overall player last year, 1 of 2 for the team of the season from leeds last year, bamba is more likely to get it than jansson this year as horrible as that is to say

9.) 07 Feb 2018 13:06:11
Jansson for Anita for sure, Saiz for Hernandez, Ekuban for Lasogga and the rest can play for their places with those in form keeping their spot. although with everyone fit I would go to a narrow 4-2-3-1 myself with the 3 pushing forward and looking to score goals and provide chances for Ekuban.



16 Jan 2018 00:46:54
Relax, all the posters on here that said there is always one team that comes from nowhere into the play offs and thought it could be us! Its not. Its fulham! Think we will be the team that flirts with top 6 the entire season and then misses out in last week. Wait. Wasnt that last season? As my previous post two days ago. Nothing changes! Fed up and bored of it. Hate losing. Hate under achieving. We just seem time and time again to get owners with the right intentions but not the knowledge needed to come good on them.


1.) 16 Jan 2018 04:39:10
Another good post. What's going on with you Aussie and all these excellent contributions? Dosage must be spot on finally.

{Ed001's Note - maybe he has been hacked?}

2.) 16 Jan 2018 05:51:39
Funny guys. Funny.

3.) 16 Jan 2018 07:13:11
Frustrates the life out of me Aus, we have been in similar positions to this before, notably the decent team Grayson had, last season also, with 2/3 quality signings we could really give it a good go, we have bought way too much quantity over quality, I have spent a fortune travelling to and from All the home and away games, and I will carry on doing it, I would however like us to show some ambition over the next fortnight and at least try to get the players to take us into the top 6.it's 15-16 months since we knew Taylor was going and we only just got a left back, let's hope it's not 15-16 months till we replace wood!

4.) 16 Jan 2018 13:12:23
Oh dear george and ed. 4 down. Maybe my reputation precedes me?

25 May 2018 10:38:18
Bart's is only worth 4 mill I reckon. Geezer from Peter about 5 maybe. Hern is worth giving mill sign on and decent wage. Play berahdi next to forshaw. Put Byram on wing 4mill. Still leaves cash


1.) 25 May 2018 10:50:47
And your plan is not paying them? Remember that budget includes wages.

2.) 25 May 2018 11:34:43
Pay on performance I say. Play crap pay crap.

3.) 25 May 2018 13:15:53
Mmmmmmm on that basis Aussie, most of those who played last season will be paying back their wages for decades

4.) 25 May 2018 13:38:33
That would be nice wouldn't it Aus but impossible to enforce

5.) 25 May 2018 15:35:22
I think with a bit of thought and specifics around role and performance it’s doable.

6.) 25 May 2018 15:58:13
Some fair points, but please no Berardi, total liability and I don't think he will change. Best rid for me.

7.) 25 May 2018 16:03:57
Quite like your idea of Berardi in the middle. By the same token I wonder if Dallas could? do a job in (defensive) midfield

8.) 25 May 2018 17:58:27
Beradi is king

9.) 25 May 2018 19:11:23
Beradi is not all that good.

10.) 25 May 2018 21:27:43
Thank you ed.

11.) 25 May 2018 22:21:38
I reckon Berardi could well be on his way, and I'm hoping he takes Useless O'kane with him.

12.) 25 May 2018 22:59:45
What’s the idea of Beradi in midfield? Ok he gets stuck in but he is nowhere good enough for that role. I’m pretty sure some coach somewhere over the years would of cottened on by now if he was the new Batty!



22 May 2018 06:12:28
Helloa from Hawaii followers. This is your leader here! Still celebrating my landslide victory in poster of the year. Just a quick recap on who we have signed and who we are bidding for and who we have sold in last 5 days. er? Ok. Let's change the subject. A quick look at how Leeds are already planning and putting important steps in place to improve on last season. oh? At least we have seen major hierarchy managerial and scouting decisions made for what is about to happen including. ? Right. Hope you enjoyed another fact filled post from The Ausman


1.) 22 May 2018 10:35:52
Talk about success breeds success Aus, you appear to have raised the bar to a whole new level 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Just hope our Team can match your exemplary standards next year! I know Australia borrows the queens English to use, but a lot of the words get abused and misused but ‘irony’ is the same yes? Keep up the great work Aus

2.) 22 May 2018 10:43:49
Well it definitely was as inciteful and thought provoking as the majority of your posts Aussie

20 May 2018 11:15:39
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


1.) 20 May 2018 11:57:11
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.}

2.) 20 May 2018 11:59:42
That threat of 3-5 post every day did it for me. I demand a recount.

3.) 20 May 2018 12:54:54
Oh dear Aus has got the Napoleon complex now, have we created a monster. Ausman take heed fella there is place for only one mad man ( Orta) , we can't afford be doing with the two of you. The day of reckoning will come and your sins be accounted for. lol

4.) 20 May 2018 19:17:54

17 May 2018 00:11:53
Tut. Tut. First Alf for being always fair and balanced Second. Bright for always being optimistic. Third speedie though I regret this now as he didn't vote for me and gone right off his posts.


1.) 17 May 2018 04:10:08
Thanks for the clarity Aus. Those who haven't voted yet still can. All posters welcome.

2.) 17 May 2018 08:45:42
I'll go first Bright, always inciteful. Second Aussie, always witty- though I'm not sure he realises it. And third George, always speaks his mind like a true Yorkshireman. Even though he talks bollocks most if the time:)

Good post Wex and thanks for voting.

8.) 18 May 2018 16:46:31
I heard George Michael squeezed in more than once ;)



16 May 2018 01:08:49
3rd place goes to. It's actually quite hard. I think speedie deserves a mention cause I dream about him a lot, class cause he laughs at my jokes, Leodis cause he tends to agree about what I say. It's hard to choose.


1.) 16 May 2018 07:16:34
So George. The winner for 3rd place for speedie for solid knowlededgeable accurate balanced posts!

2.) 16 May 2018 07:43:50
Is it still hard aus?
