Bit late posting this but was in no state yesterday to be putting sentences together and just finished work but what a result. Think we just moved up to the next level. JCs head must be in the clouds right now love the lad. Thank you Mr Cellino for bringing such talent to the club, and Shackleton. Not an ideal game to blood Lief in, he must have been crapping it, but fair play he put in a shift. Never say die attitude is fantastic. All that's left to say is Merry Christmas to all my readers, hope you all have a great one. Onwards and upwards.

Good post Bige.

Have a blue yellow and white Christmas everyone, and yes I've checked the league tables, guess what? We're Leeds United, we're top of the league.

Same to you and all the other fans on site whilst listening to bielsa rhapsody on repeat happy christmas.

Was working yesterday so could not get to the match but watched it last night through my beer goggles and again this morning. Thought Brentford were the best we have met this season, caused us a lot of problems. Ref certainly a Brentford fan, needs to dropped to lower leagues, very poor.

Although once again some of our players were off their game, maybe need a rest, we more than held our own and i think if the ref had let the game flow we would have seen us win that one. Third not a bad place to be after all our injuries and in a way i am glad Ayling gets to have a rest now as well.

Said before we are missing Pablo and Roofe up front to get the goals flowing again. If the ref had his glasses on and spotted the dive we would have won 1-0 so not downbeat over the result, or performance. these things happen. Think we are a top three team and deserve to be and come end of season will expect us to still be up there.

West Brom for me are the team to beat, dodgy defence but score for fun. Blunts and Bees will drop away but will be thereabouts for a play off position. Very close so far as Forest have shown by jumping into the play off position. Think the team who wins it will be the first one to get 5 points ahead over the winter.

If we sign two or three players in Jan, which we have the money for, think that could be us. Always positive because no point being negative when you are in the top three. Think the young lads coming through and getting game time will be a big help this season. Onwards and upwards.

Whats up ed running out of things to put on the rumours page.

{Ed001's Note - it is Ed033 for some reason he doesn't seem to understand the difference between rumours and banter. He keeps doing this just to keep the page ticking over when it does nothing bar making a mess.}

2.) 07 Oct 2018 14:59:27
Very positive, BIGE, like it!

3.) 08 Oct 2018 10:44:46
Great post Bige. Yours are always a good read pal!



27 Aug 2018 10:46:43
According to Hay Bielsa wants premier midfielder in before Friday to cover for Saiz. Anyone any ideas who that could be.


1.) 27 Aug 2018 14:15:22
Izzy Brown's a name doing the rounds and Powell from Wigan.

2.) 27 Aug 2018 17:58:23
That would be good signing.

3.) 27 Aug 2018 21:50:46
I was thinking Izzy, bielsa type of player.



09 Jul 2018 14:02:14
Looks like the Vydra deal is off, surprise surprise. Wages a problem so it seems. Come on Jerry aaaaaagh


1.) 09 Jul 2018 16:43:21
I'm happy about that. Always too expensive. Abel, Wilson and 2 decent central defenders and I'm good.

2.) 09 Jul 2018 17:27:58
Its good to dream george.

3.) 09 Jul 2018 18:12:20
George, Abel Hernandez unlikely to sign for Leeds. He will be likely playing for CSK in Russia.

4.) 09 Jul 2018 20:57:50
It is Bige because if you don't you'll never make a dream come true



01 Jul 2018 10:18:11
Rumour going around my local tavern is we are looking to bring in a cb from overseas, a Bielsa target.

Crystal Palace were fined by the PL when Cardiffs line up was leaked before a match so this should set the precedent and give guidance to the EFL. anything more and it should be challenged. As i said earlier if they are so against it then why is there not a specific rule with fixed penalties regarding it.


1.) 16 Jan 2019 12:20:06
Oops, I just posted something similar on the rumours page.

2.) 16 Jan 2019 13:50:35
Just glad i posted before you or i would be in trouble for spying and Jenas would be wanting me to wear a Man U shirt.



14 Jan 2019 15:54:33
U23s win 2-0 with Izzy looking fit and grabbing both goals. KP playing more forward with Shacks holding KunT up front showing promise but a way to go yet to get in first team. Another good game from Gotts and Stevens and win never looked in doubt.

Plenty of use made of subs as well. Struijk had a good game making two or three good blocks, as did Halme. Edmondson looked back to his usual self as well so everything looking good guys.


1.) 14 Jan 2019 16:49:16
Good report BIGE, excellent news about Brown.

2.) 14 Jan 2019 18:18:16
Thought Halme looked assured, not afraid to bring the ball out into midfield when the chance arose, but whether he could handle a nutter like Waghorne is another matter.

3.) 14 Jan 2019 20:09:45
Aapo made some good passes as well. Good to see all three of the CBS getting game time. It’s difficult to give everyone gametime for the under 23s at the moment. No Oduor, Nicell, Mcalmont ir Dalby today.

4.) 15 Jan 2019 06:59:02
If anything that shows the depth at that level VO has built up

Cover for every position, no need to play with a knock

There’s players out on loan to add to the mix

Sadly a few will be sold on to generate more income but it’s quite a turn round in the academy.



07 Jan 2019 09:16:48
Although it was not a top priority game think we can take quite a bit from it . Forshaw not a holding midfielder, rate the guy but that's not his position. Baker as a lot of you are saying is highly thought of and talented but he is showing very little with us. No excuse for it as he is an experienced player and can play a lot better than he is so must have some issues which we do not need. Shacks as well as he plays at right back is a midfielder and would have likes Gotts to have a run out and Shacks play in either Bakers or Forshaws position. Halme did enough to be considered for Derby and probably why he was hooked. Pearce also proved he is fit for next game. Roberts not good enough to replace Saiz but will have something to offer before season ends. Ayling not a CB and do not want to see him there again. Leif needs a bit longer before he is ready. BPF still a lot to learn but not a big liability like a lot of our past goalies. Nice to see most of the bench get minutes on the pitch. Thought the team did a good job in the circumstances and although not as dominant as we usually are they held their own and unlucky not to get the draw.


1.) 07 Jan 2019 11:37:44
Can’t really argue with any of that BIGE! 👍🏻🍻.

2.) 07 Jan 2019 12:17:44
Agree BIGE. Just about sums it up.

3.) 07 Jan 2019 12:30:44
Priority there was clearly to give some of our fringe lads some game time rather than go all out to win. we never seem to get a result in these games do we?

4.) 07 Jan 2019 12:50:48
Good Review

I think Roberts has potential, I think Bielsa can see that and is trying him out in different positions. Might be that regular game time with the under 23s for a bit could be better for him than warming the bench. We shall see.

Baker is also worth persevering with, you might be right that there is some off field stuff affecting him. Hopefulky we can settle him and Bielsa can bring out a telling contribution from him.

5.) 07 Jan 2019 13:24:09
How did kun do when he came on?

6.) 07 Jan 2019 14:29:58
Well, for the few mins he was on, he does look capable. Can’t really gauge on yesterday, but more from the academy games I’ve seen him in, and out of many of them, I really hope we hang onto him, because he will be a gem!



02 Jan 2019 09:51:42
This is not a criticism of the mighty Bielsa but just my view of things. Think it would make more sense to play Halme and have KP in holding role. Foreshaw offers no protection to back four and plays better higher up field. KP does an excellent job there and gets the ball forward this would make it easier for Halme to settle in. For all that's been said about his fitness i would play Clarke from the off bringing him on at half time when we are two goals down just puts more pressure on him. Would rather he had to be taken off second half when we are two goals up. More use needs to be made of Shackleton and less of Harrisson. We are all hoping for two or three signings this month because we need them. See we are getting another young one through the door for academy so i hope Orta is as quick with first team additions.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 10:24:35
I'm not sure, I think if forshaw didn't play we would miss his legs and mobility. for me if KP is to play it should be for kiltch who started the season great but recently has not done much. Forshaw made a couple of misatkes yesterday but was busy and all over the park, where as kitlch barely touched the ball, that also moves KP's passing further up the park and means KP has to cover less ground

there must be an issues with clarks fitness as the lad is quality, it is no suprise that we score more gaols in second half when the lad is on the pitch.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 10:44:15
I think Forshaw and Klich need a bit of a rest, but only likely to happen in the cup at the moment.

Three comments re Clarke, it’s interesting that we always see only playing a half as a bad thing. I think subs can be used creatively to mix things up and keep the opponents guessing. Only playing a half doesn’t mean you’re not good enough or have let the team down.

Clarke struggles to deliver what Bielsa wants over 90 minutes. I’ve seen him at under 23s and not tracking back as much, knackered after the 90.

Finally he is still learning the tracking back part of the game, naturally he stays up field more and when he started, he looked a bit more like a “lazy” winger. All of that is changing but don’t let’s rush him and criticize him when he doesn’t deliver a great 90.

3.) 02 Jan 2019 10:53:06
Tend to agree with you there Bige. KP has his best games when deployed in the holding role, and it’s no coincidence that we’ve shipped goals since he dropped into defence (not that it’s his fault) . Hoping coops will be back soon, because as mad as it seems to some, we looked much More solid with him playing, and Kal sat in front.

4.) 02 Jan 2019 10:59:17
KP played Klitchs role in academy in front of Cook for years and scored some belters so would not argue with putting him further forward, if he did would like to have Coops back or aother experienced cb in.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 12:05:51
KP doesn't have the mobility or guile to play further upfield. He has found his position sitting in front of the back four and has been one of the players of the season (so far) in that position.

6.) 02 Jan 2019 12:46:56
Clarke seems to struggle after 20 min. Not sure if it's a fitness thing or teams react to his threat and counter it.
We will never know what he can do in a full game until we try!

7.) 02 Jan 2019 13:33:06
Def need coops back or even Berardi.
Kp better in holding role.
Forshaw was poor tonight but Klich got better as game went on.
Clarke who will be a world beater just got less of the ball later. Not his fault.

8.) 02 Jan 2019 13:34:43
If its fitness I'm fairly sure playing regularly will help with that and it won't be long until he is a starter.

9.) 02 Jan 2019 13:58:50
I agree Bige. Kal was always a more forward thinking player, and has a right shot in his pocket! That said, I bow to Bielsa in identifying his clear ability playing from the back.

10.) 02 Jan 2019 15:30:12
Spanish, I am thinking along similar lines to you regarding Clarke and strategic use of subs. Man U rarely gave Solskar a full game, but his tally was superb. Over the decades there have been some super "super subs" who have been most effective for half a match. Bielsa knows his stuff and I am happy with how Clarke contributes in just half a match. If his legs weren't as fresh in second half, when theirs are tired, he may lose impact. Tis not broke so let's not fix it.

11.) 02 Jan 2019 16:02:06
Carl Shutt anybody? The original supersub!

12.) 02 Jan 2019 19:56:04
And Canada, backtracking, have watched the KP tackle a few more times from different angles. You were right, red every day. My bad!

13.) 03 Jan 2019 00:07:54
It was a definitely red card, although I'm watching MOTD at the moment and I've seen a few worse tackles with no red cards, down to the ref at the end of the day. Surprising to see a few posters actually wanting my mate super Cooper back in the team, people coming round to my way of thinking :) poor bloke couldn't buy a good word on here before this season.



30 Dec 2018 13:27:44
Six points from our last three after beating Villa thought we would grab nine but hey ho. Next three and none of them can be classed as easy but i reckon five points will keep us top and that should be doable. W. Brom play Norwich on the 12th so points are going to be dropped then. Will be interesting to see how Brom do with the injuries and suspensions, they will miss Gayle and that's good for us as i thought they would be one of the top three along with us and Middlesbrough at beginning of season. Hoping Norwich are on the slide now, surprised me how they have done so well but they are a tight unit. Sheff Utd are the big surprise to me Sharp in the form of his life and they just attack for fun but defensively are not that good but they get away with it. Anyways top for New Year and Jan window approaching so let's hope we get a couple more in and push on and let's get KP back into midfield please. Onwards and upwards.


1.) 30 Dec 2018 13:51:32
Good post BIGE, especially getting KP back into midfield.

2.) 30 Dec 2018 21:37:49
JayRod is out for 3 games as well as Gayle being out.

3.) 31 Dec 2018 14:14:23
We need 3 in in January and here are my suggestions:

Goalkeeper - Karl Darlow
Centre Back - Juan Foyth
Striker - Neal Maupay.

With you on that Leodis. Midfield need to be getting on score sheet more often. They were at beginning of season but gone off the boil a bit last couple of months. We boss most of our games so maybe some one needs to let fly now and again.

Would prefer an older more experienced keeper as back up and to teach BPF and help him improve rather than someone to come in and relegate him to the bench.

If we get coops back or play Halme we do not have a problem. Odour good on the wing but would put Stevens above Nicell.

Yes think Roofe should score more but the way we play the attacking midfielders should be as well. Saiz Alioski should have more to their name as well. I am sure the goals will come and no doubt Bielsa will be working on that every training session. The ability is there but we need some one to flip the switch.
