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.




02 Jun 2018 00:10:16
At last he has gone let's hope we pick the right one now. Bielsa, Ranieri or some one of that pedigree. Hecky wrong place wrong time. Still learning himself and may be decent in 4 or 5 years. We need a coach/manager who can come in and make an impact and start playing good attacking football again. One who will not be too scared to mix things up. All our managers have been scared to lose the job and carried on with crap tactics. Bielsa may be just the man.


1.) 04 Jun 2018 06:46:25
Oking I don’t have rose tinted glasses, it’s not negative given ones opinion



01 May 2018 23:07:40
Please let it be true and we have Ranieri for next season. Need a proper manager/coach get your money out Radz.


1.) 02 May 2018 12:41:32
BIGE, reports say that Radz has had talks with dog bottom and those talks have restored Radz confidence in dogbottom so do think it’s going to change any time soon.

2.) 02 May 2018 13:27:58
Do or don't whiteman?

3.) 05 May 2018 08:36:40
Anyones got to be better than heckingbottomarse

4.) 05 May 2018 16:53:45
Alfupper, can’t stand the man, off with his head, what did Radz say top six is minimum, both failed in my book .

Watched the match live and must say was a solid performance again. BPF and Harrison improving every game. Made up for Roberts, deserved his goals and think he will push on from now. So impressed with the style of play. KP, Coops and Pontus looked solid. Everyone free to attack. Fair play to Preston they came to play football and gave us a couple of scares but we just bossed it again. Good to see Forshaw getting some time on pitch. This Bielsa guy certainly knows what he is doing. Onwards and upwards.




15 Sep 2018 10:32:06
I will go for 2 or 3 nil to us. Millwall overachieved last season and have managed to weaken their squad for this season. If we stick to playing football and do not let them bait us into individual little battles we will have too much for them. Goals come from anywhaere in this team so not too worried about Roofe being out, though i would have prefered him up front as Roberts not shown a lot yet. Personally would be cautious of blooding Clarke in this sort of game but sure if Edmondson gets some minutes he will hold his own against their bruisers. Fingers crossed no more injuries and we get a decent game from the ref.


1.) 15 Sep 2018 10:59:41
Bige Edmondson my choice to start due to his physicality. Like to see Clarke come on after an hour.



15 Aug 2018 11:47:27
Wilks starting the season well, 3 in 3 for Donny. Made up for the lad, deserves a break and some good fortune.


1.) 15 Aug 2018 16:35:16
Yes let's hope he keeps it up, it's good to see the lads out on loan doing well.



11 Aug 2018 22:27:19
Well first away game for me for about three years and what a game. Credit to the whole team, gave 110% Played two of the fancied teams and bossed them both. Two of the best midfields in the division were nullified. All heroes tonight and kept going to the end. Young Shackleton as well did his bit. In the Merlin before game and a couple of Derby fans reckoned our style would suit them and they would kill us on the break. Could not find them after game, probably threw themselves int Derwent. Hope we have enough players to keep this up all season as i think any team will find it hard to stop us scoring. Defence were like terriers, some mistakes but they were onto everything. Onwards and upwards.


1.) 11 Aug 2018 23:01:50
Totally agree, just got back. Derby fans reckon that they’ve played the best team in the division and that we’re this years Wolves. Let’s hope that they are right and that we get protection from the ref when we play against the likes of Millwall as they’re bound to try and take players like Saiz and Roofe out by fair means or foul. Things are looking good and we’re getting rave reviews from the unlikeliest of sources.

2.) 11 Aug 2018 23:52:34
Bige Lol on the Derwent.



06 Aug 2018 19:30:34
Well first game of season and we beat what was practically a premiership team 3-1. Not just beat them but destroyed them first half. Excellent team performance yet the experts are out singling out players who are not good enough to be in the team that won . Phillips who has been picked by our last four managers, but what do they know about football. Berardi, who maybe is not best in that position but is the player Bielsa chose to play there and hadfaith in him to do a job. Yes he did make mistakes but that is a new role for him. Douglas made mistakes so should we get him out as well. It was an excellent first game at ER and well worth the money. Think its a bit early to start saying he can't play, he's crap. No doubt players will be rotated playing this style but let's get a few games in before we start slagging everyone off and picking negatives. Plenty of positives on show on sunday, happy with that.


1.) 06 Aug 2018 20:09:38
loads of positives but please can we address Phillips

please someone explain it to me? Last season he was poor then let's look over what he did yesterday

1. at fault for the goal
2. poor pass accuaracy
3. should of been sent off
4. should of been booked after getting sent off
5. 94 minute thought it was ok to flick up ball in penatly area from their corner to then miss air kick the clearance leaving the ball at the mercy of their team in our penatly area

these are not opinions these are things he did, ok he got away with them but will cost us, Phillips gets picked because of injury and/ or lack of quality. there is a reason Veria got sold and no on wants that donkey

I don't need to go into beradi, I have banged that drum enough, anyone not sure look up twitter most fans slating him for what he is passionate but pony

lots of positives but also things went out way and could of cost us on a different day. This current squad will not get promoted as players on fringes still not good enough (roofe, phillips, beradi, cooper, dallas) they are decent but not great and over 46 games at this intensity will cost us as it did last year please remember us 12 games in last year we were all certain we were going up. we need to learn from history no manager can polish a turd and sadly we have a few turds.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 20:17:23
Your opinion BW, i hold a different one.

3.) 06 Aug 2018 20:39:36
Bermondsey, welcome back! I think we’ve had, got rid of or are in the process of getting rid of a lot of turds! But you can’t change everything overnight! The boss has chosen the players he feels he can work with now and most people seem to think that collectively. They did a good job for him! He has addressed some key weaknesses, give the the chance to show what he can do with this team. Phillips could have been sent off, we could have scored 3 more goals, the penalty might not have been a penalty. We won 3-1 against a team thought to be up with the best. Let’s see how we do against Derby at Derby. I don’t think any Leeds fan will get over confident this year, we know it will be a long slog and we will be wary of another collapse post Christmas. But not a bad start!

4.) 06 Aug 2018 20:48:28
I think there are some good facts but I also think that all of these players have potential, as does any one, given the right coaching and mentoring. Granted, some are better than others but you can’t take away a good overall team performance. Mistakes happen and they always will but with confidence comes a belief and that can turn a player around. Yes there are better players out there but slagging individuals off is just unhelpful to the cause. IMO 🤔. MOT👏🏻.

5.) 06 Aug 2018 20:55:50
Phillips played well. He will make mistakes as the seasons goes on but that should take nothing away from yesterday's performance.

6.) 06 Aug 2018 21:00:30
Bermondsey, we won let’s not knock one player getting things a bit wrong, enjoy the moment and leave it at that,

7.) 06 Aug 2018 21:12:31
PPeacock . the definitive term in there is . TEAM PERFORMANCE . the boys fought and covered for each other, a few mistakes from more than KP but Bub expects that . if they were all robots he'd never lose :)

8.) 06 Aug 2018 21:13:16
Great post Bige I couldn’t have said it better myself because basically I’m too lazy to do so!
Bermo I knew it was your retort before I saw your name at the bottom! If the coach can make us play that well then I’m sure he can improve individuals over time. Welcome back by the way.

9.) 06 Aug 2018 21:20:56
By the way Bermo a stoke player did a far worse high tackle before Phillips and got away with it so could of been ten against ten. As for his passing accuracy I don’t know the stats but the manager has the team taking risks in possession so that might account for that.
No defending Beradi with though mate! You.

10.) 06 Aug 2018 21:30:19
Every player no matter who they are will make mistakes. That’s the nature off a footballer. And the position they play. Some mistakes will be more costly than others . let’s just be happy with the team performance and take it for what it was. A surprisingly great performance in the 1st day off season. Let’s be happy with that instead off nit picking faults. MOT. I’m one off Phillips biggest critics and that’s being nice about him. But I’m more than happy with the effort. MOT. ⚽️⚽️⚽️👌😀.

11.) 06 Aug 2018 22:10:27
AL you do realise that I was replying to Bermo🤔.

12.) 06 Aug 2018 22:13:44
Whiteman has someone hacked your account?

13.) 06 Aug 2018 22:41:07
I do agree and I am happy (just hiding it well) thought we would get smashed yet we were the better team and deserved to win. Loved the performance and I am being picky and moany but I honestly don't get phillips and how anyone with eyes and/ or brain can say anything other than donkeyturd!

Bige it is not opinion he should of been sent off fact (yes so should of their guy but i don't care about them going forward I care about us) this is not opinion it was as red as man u's shirt

he did flick up the ball at thier corner and then air kick a acrobatic clearnace in the 94th minute again not opinion he did do that.

his pass accuracy was poor (ok this could be down to tactics)

I don't understand how anyone watced him (please watch it again) and say . yeah going forward we will be ok with him in the team. He is just not good enough

we have good manager (unproven here but undoutbaly good) we have some great players (aling, douglas, saiz as good as anyone in this league) we have some very good players (rest of squad)

my only worry is Beradi, Phillips are not good enough and should never wear our shirt again

cooper can be great but can be a donkey chops, roofe while very good doesn't score enough

i don't mind us not getting promoted, i like us being champ team, what I do mind is the thought we can't go up and to me beradi and phillips playing more than 10 games for us this year = us not going up

this is my opinion. however what Phillips did yesterday is not. he was a massive pile of pony with a dodgy barnet. I also suggest if he was not leeds, if he was not local and come thorugh youth. if he was a VO signing (I don't mind VO either contraversially) everyone would be on Phillips back. leeds lads get a lot of leaway and personally I don't understand it?

that said of course i loved the performance just but feel we played well despite phillips and beradi not because of them

sadly for a load of I told you so. i hope I am wrong but as the wife will tell you. i am never wrong.

14.) 06 Aug 2018 22:49:49
Yes PPeacock, I just wanted to emphasise the importance of it being a team performance :)

15.) 07 Aug 2018 07:47:07
Bermondsey, probably never have a team or squad of players on which all the fans agree. The keys for me are performance and results. In the first game we delivered and looked like a team. That team spirit can make an enormous difference and help those fringe players perform to a higher standard, look at Leicester in the prem. Berardi, is cover, who loves the team and shows the right spirit. Phillips seemingly has been earmarked for a very specific role and time will tell if he can deliver, but give him and Bielsa some time and let’s see what happens. I’ll be interested to see how Phillips and this defence copes with Derby!

One of our weaknesses over the last few years has been the ability to genuinely compete with the top teams and pick up points against them. Most people would think Stoke would be top six, so that’s a good start, Derby gives us another chance to rate our style against another favoured team.

If we play like that against some of the weaker teams in the division, we should get some good victories this year.

We need some luck with injuries to key players and we need some discipline, to avoid the damage that red and yellow cards did last year. I’m excited!

16.) 07 Aug 2018 08:00:18
From being at ER and seeing them guys run and chase for every ball, I don't think we should be picking out the players that made one of two mistakes and wanting their heads. Yes we have some players who may not be as technically gifted. But what I watched on Sunday was a group of players, many of them frustrating to watch last season actually playing as a team. Let's get behind them, we won well for God's sake. Enjoy the moment.

17.) 07 Aug 2018 09:14:42
Martyn I was thinking the same! Like the positivity whiteman.

18.) 07 Aug 2018 09:56:14
fair enough I shall drop it for now. I do hope i am wrong but think there will be a lot of I told you so's

I think I was the first one on Beradi and got a lot of stick now most tend to agree he is useless, now for me it is KP turn

I think it is the Bermondsey Millwall in me sadly, where I am from you have to hate at least one player or you ain't seen as a proper fan, when at millwall i blend in by slagging off the team

I shall just be happy with the win and try not to worry about the season ahead. so anyway my wife is proper fat and aged badly.

Shame but hopefully back for Jan when the bad weather might be taking its toll on Roofe. Think Edmondson and Clarke can do a few shifts as well. Roberts still to convince me but sure he has something to offer. Typical though get a new job, get your feet under the table then have a couple of months on sick lol.

Liam Kitching and Paudi also had good games again out on loan. Paudi scored and Harrogate are top of their leaue with Kitching playing every game and two goals for him so far. Know its lower leagues but still experience.

Think we will beat Millwall, different team from last year, more grit and commitment. Wall have not got much to offer and will be surprised if they finish with ten men. Preston play well but against our first team they will struggle. Think Bielsa may have a plan for them.

Do not think we can judge him yet on the playing time he has had. Strikers need a few full games under their belt to get up to speed with rest of squad. Only time he has started is with reserve team so hard to say. Think he has goals in him but as leodis says will not worry too much if he never starts.

Thats fine LUFC. I respect that. Your right he looks a t==t. But i do not have to agree with you about his abilities. KP obviously divides people on this. You believe you are right others think you are wrong. People have had a dig at me on this site in the past but that is what sites like this are about. Its not a drama its banter. No one is persecuting anyone they are challenging an opinion. Maybe the angst comes from the fact its gone on so long. Would suggest we leave it till the new year and see where we are then.

Looked at a couple of rating sites and KP deservedly got a four rating for the time he was on the pitch. But a lot gave Ayling Douglas 5 for the time they wee on which was a lot longer than KP. Would have thought they would be a lot higher. In fact on some sites 6 was the highest rating which puts it into perspective, bad day all round.

What i find laughable is every post you put on has a rant about KP. Lot of players wanted slating yesterday. You believe KP offers nothing, fair enough. I believe he does a good job breaking up play. Have always said he will have bad games because his recovery rate is poor. The fact he has started every game, including cup, then goes missing sort of proves my point. that's something that needs working on. Crap player is a matter of opinion. His job is to break up their midfield play, get about the pitch and disrupt their rhythm. He has done a lot of fouls but only has one yellow, one less than Saiz. He is a defensive midfielder wit two assists, one more than Saiz. I am not saying he is the best player we have but as i have said overall his stats are not the worst with an average of 7. We can all quote this stat or that stat or what our friends are saying but its an opinion at the end of the day. You have yours, its well noted. I have mine. If this time next year he is playing for Donny i may agree with you. At the moment he is doing a job for LUFC.

Understand your concern but think it would be hard for any team to dominate a match 100% There are going to be times in any game where the other team gets a foothold and tries to play, good thing is we do not let them do it for long. When we are on the front foot we create chances, and the chances can fall to any one of the attacking players. As you said Klich missed 2 which in another match he may put away as he has done. Roberts although looking to be still getting used to the system scored 2. Overall we have the greater possession each game. We have the belief that we can score in any game and if we keep creating as many chances odds are we will. Have no doubt we wil have one or two matches that trip us up but unlike other years think this team will bounce right back.
