Given this is "us", Leeds United, what are the odds of PH "taking the night to think about it", and staying at Barnsley? Happened recently, just can't remember where?


1.) 05 Feb 2018 22:39:16
Flores and stoke i believe. I think we may move on to Hannes Wolf if that happened

2.) 06 Feb 2018 08:29:48
Fingers crossed

3.) 06 Feb 2018 17:11:37
That's right scoops. couldn't for the life of me remember! Now he's here, I hope he does the business, and is given time to surprise a good many people. !



04 Feb 2018 21:37:23
Well, he's gone. so now who?




22 Jan 2018 13:54:14
Klich to Utrecht done til the end of the season, so that's one down. Grot needs a League 1 loan to get him used to English football. Wonder who else will be leaving soon?


1.) 22 Jan 2018 15:49:30
Definitely Brighty, Grot needs a L1 loan. I know I am swimming against the tide but either a L1 loan or a long string of U23 games. After that let's look again. I think we have a talent there who can do a job. He is built like a bully and has a good touch for a big man just, as yet, does not put himself about. L1 defenders should teach him what it's all about.

2.) 24 Jan 2018 12:28:43
Carry on the way we are going and we'll be in league one!



16 Jan 2018 17:14:42
CBJ GONE. One word; "Thank **** for that! "


1.) 16 Jan 2018 17:52:25
or more accurately 4 words but i agree with the sentiment. what a waste of money.

2.) 16 Jan 2018 18:16:01
And therein lie the rules of "the obvious game".

3.) 17 Jan 2018 02:02:43
First game he played I thought he looked bright and exciting and added some width. Flattered to deceive. From that point on - nothing. Can't understand it. These young guys with some obvious talent come out on loan and have a gifted opportunity to showcase whatever they have for their parent club to see. and they clown about as though they we are not worthy to have them set foot on out patch. They think they are too good for us for them to have to put In the effort and instead come off looking like mugs, wasting their time and ours, and blotting their copy book. What a waste.

4.) 17 Jan 2018 11:35:09
Great assessment kiwi. Total waste.



11 Jan 2018 21:41:32
I know for a fact that I'm going to get shot down by many here for this post, but this is my perspective on what is quite clearly the strategy of the owner and his team. Promotion was never the goal this season; I accept the urgency many have attached to promotion, but it was never the case for the board.

They are building the base, and building for the future, which in my mind, in these days of FFP, is shrewd. Our style of football this year, has been worth watching, not the "sideways, sideways, back to keeper" dross, or "go long" carp we've had over too many seasons. The infrastructure of our great club has been addressed, and corrected, and everything can't happen over night.

As Leeds fans, we are not the most patient, but the right steps have been taken, and we are moving forward the first time in over a decade. Have a little more patience, and we will all be where we want to be. MOT.


1.) 12 Jan 2018 04:28:59
Which of our 20 odd building for the future players we have boyght will be prem league class next year when the 8-9 bought in this year are 99% league 1 standard?

2.) 12 Jan 2018 12:52:43
Bright Promotion is the goal but like Cellino we may have another water into wine merchant in Radz. The development squad needed addressing but that has received too much focus recently. We need 3 or 4 good old-fashioned British Isles pros.

3.) 12 Jan 2018 13:25:45
Promotion this year must be our aim but interwoven with this, the need for a long term strategy. Hopefully the players bought recently are being nurtured and assesed out of the spotlight and, if we don't go up this year, are the basis of a proper go next season. So far I am with Radz and will not unfurl my "out" banners just yet. In fact I am quietly optimistic of a tilt this year but am already eager for next season to start.

4.) 12 Jan 2018 14:14:27
Radz never said that was our aim for this year, he just said we would be looking at bettering last year and that could be interpreted many ways. I would guess from what is happening that we are more interested in building for the future than promotion immediately. If we develop our own talent in 2-3 years we could have a great team that didn't cost the earth and they will likely be able to continue developing into the Prem when we get promoted. wouldn't be surprised if the actual aim was 2-3 years for promotion rather than this season.

5.) 12 Jan 2018 14:39:37
I kind of agree with you Brightwhite. My mate and I had this conversation after the Forest game. Radz is doing all the right things off the field and if it did take a season or two to go up, we would be ready commercially for the Premier League. I do despair with our football sometimes. We can look great one game and average the next, but that's football. As Ausman states we do have a lot of players who aren't Premier league standard. What worries me there is a lot of them are on 4 year deals. We have a new left back, which was a priority. I do think we are a good striker away from staying in the top 6, so fingers crossed

6.) 12 Jan 2018 14:58:40
Exactly the point I was trying to make Alf. Of course promotion this year would be a bonus, but the investment made by Radz to date, has not been aimed at delivering that goal. Everything has been targeted at creating financial stability for the club as a business, and developing a team for the future, whilst remaining competitive on the pitch to remain in or around the play offs.

7.) 12 Jan 2018 15:02:07
Aus. who are the 9 Lg1 standard players?

8.) 12 Jan 2018 19:49:15
Bright I'm not Ausman thank heavens but my choices are Lonergan, Peacock-Farrell, Anita, CBJ, Denton, Sacko, PML, Grot and Wilks.

9.) 13 Jan 2018 08:25:23
I agree this squad will need additions to be able to cope on the PL but let's be honest, how many of Huddersfield's squad would you have named as being able to cope in the PL but they aren't doing that bad at the mo. You never know who may surprise us!

10.) 13 Jan 2018 11:46:29
Great post bright and good contribution Alf. For the first time in years I'm feeling very optimistic about the future. Radz seems have his head screwed on and knows what he's doing off the field. Yes there are some issues on the field and yes they might have rolled the dice on a few of the players that have been brought in but that to me is the nature of the beast, at least they're giving it a good go and building well for the future! In 3 years if we're holding our own in the PL it will have been worth not going up this year/having the perfect squad right now.

11.) 13 Jan 2018 14:35:06
Totally agree O Leary. Better to go up and stay up than to yo-yo I think.

Just watched the first half of the 23's vs Ipswich, and while I know we have 146 players in that squad, I don't think it's our strongest team, but there is some quality there, as well as some physicality that is lacking in the first team. Either that, or Ipswich don't have a youth system?


1.) 19 Mar 2018 21:04:00
Dalby, Rey, Balboa, oconnor. will all be pushing for the squad next season. And looking at Kun from the last game. more to come. I enjoyed watching this match more than I have the first team recently.

2.) 19 Mar 2018 21:06:34
If you can watch a dev team game, I recommend it. Yep they're a bit like training games, but look at the individual skill, the pressing, the link up. I really hope these boys can push on.

3.) 19 Mar 2018 21:15:56
Because I’ve been at a loss about what to say about the first team, I have been watching more of the under 23s. Firstly tonight’s game was a great watch, good carefree attacking football and secondly you can really see how this squad of players is developing. Some good quality play, good build up, don’t know the stats but we could have had a lot more goals. Still a bit hung ho, but I can see some more of these players coming through. I think the strategy might be working more with the development squad than with the first team!

4.) 19 Mar 2018 21:33:16
Sad state of affairs when your enjoying under 23s above 1St team. Let's just throw half a dozen of the young boys a chance. What's the worst that can happen? We get beat! Nothing new there but at least well get commitment

5.) 19 Mar 2018 21:35:34
Rey, Dalby and Clarke should all get a chance soon. As well as our favourite Kun. 😀

6.) 19 Mar 2018 22:24:14
Agree re "gung Ho" Spanish, and from having coached kids from 4 to 18, I think it's intentional, to allow them to bloody go for it, and encourage positive, creative play. My only doubt is the gulf it creates between dev football, and championship type football. That said, our pressing out of possession was great, and some of the inter play at times was very good. And this isn't a settled team.

7.) 20 Mar 2018 02:27:43
Drop everybody except berahdi. Goalie. Pontus. Forshaw saiz. Bring the youth in with the message. Attack attack attack.

8.) 20 Mar 2018 07:20:28
Bright you’re right, good pressing play and some really confident creative football. Martyn, it’s good fun football and better for my mental health at the moment than watching the first team! I wonder if any championship team has ever dropped its entire first team and fielded the under 23 team instead! We would probably win the game and then get fined a fortune and docked points for fielding a weakened team! They are playing again on Friday vs Cardiff, 7pm I think, worth watching if you have the chance.

9.) 20 Mar 2018 08:11:26
I'll tune in to that spanish thanks mate looks like U23s are starting to find their feet

10.) 20 Mar 2018 16:06:03
Spany, Brighty are we, in a few years, going to be talking about the the Class of '19 ?

11.) 20 Mar 2018 17:25:27
There's defo talent there Leodis, and they're all big lads too, which seems to be the way the game is going, and where we are lacking in the first team at the minute, in my opinion. The positive on top of the positive performance for me, was that we have many more who weren't even in the squad last night, which shows the strength in depth that will be coming through soon. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻



15 Mar 2018 20:30:22
Ok, I know opinions are mixed on Radz' rants re Wolves, but I wanna put that to one side, ish. How the hell have parts of a confidential communication to the EFL and FA fallen into the hands of Sly Sports Spews? I know he's made statements in the media, but for actual quotes from a letter to be leaked just shows how corrupt these organisations are, surely?


1.) 15 Mar 2018 21:31:17
Which quotes are these? Do you have a link (with Ed’s permission of course)

2.) 15 Mar 2018 22:11:49
Bright, it is disturbing how the letter appears to have been leaked but sky sports news are backing AR. A quote from them:
Sly Sports News has spoken to several Championship clubs who share Radrizzanis concerns, and called on EFL and FA to investigate further. With them publicising it then maybe EFL and FA will have to act.

3.) 16 Mar 2018 08:46:18
Innocent until proven guilty

4.) 16 Mar 2018 14:16:57
Yeah Mezzer, saw that they'd pointed out that we weren't the only ones to raise concerns, and it's good that they're making that known.



13 Mar 2018 21:31:03
Bloody crazy is this league. Villa give wolves a drubbing, now looking like losing at home to QPR. Hull winning comfortably, and doomed Barnsley looking like getting a point from Norwich. so much more interesting than the PL!


1.) 14 Mar 2018 11:34:17
If only we had some interest in it



04 Mar 2018 13:44:27
Looks like Iler Casillas will be a free agent at the end of the season! ? He speaks a bit of espanyol doesn't he?




02 Mar 2018 22:00:02
I guess I fall into "the rose tinted brigade" label, so here's my take. I don't blame Hecky for tonight, not yet anyway! But to a man, that is one of the single most disgraceful performances from a Leeds team I have seen since losing 6-0 to Leicester with roque jnr leading the back line. Quite simply rubbish football, talentless, and barring a moment or two, passionless. Garbage.


1.) 02 Mar 2018 22:14:53
I don't blame PH either as I think under TC we would still be searching for our first win this year. Do blame AR though, find it hard to believe in his master plan.

2.) 02 Mar 2018 22:16:52
Brightwhite, the coffee has been on a long time! But I agree with you.

3.) 02 Mar 2018 22:42:12

4.) 02 Mar 2018 23:29:57
As a member of the rose tinted brigade I blame heck for tonight O Kane and Phillips from the start was all wrong

5.) 03 Mar 2018 00:09:26
You don’t fall into the rose tinted brigade mate, you are just a passionate fan with a different opinion! Whiteman I thought had a terrible opinion and Mezzer but they ended up being right and I’m gutted they did, it took me a while took take to their point but when I did I could see where they were coming from, they are just as passionate! I am completely gutted because I actually thought they would come out tonight knowing this was a good game to win and with a point to prove! Tonight they only thing PH and the individuals proved is that they are not fit to wear the shirt our worthy of our support! We don’t deserve to be on the play offs or The Premiership, we look a joke, Fulham, Aston Villa, Cardiff, Middlesbrough, Derby and or Sheff Utd or Bristol City all deserve it more than us! I can’t remember in my time as a Leeds supporter where I have been so deflated and demoralised at a performance like that! But I like all of you on here will always be Leeds no matter what my opinion on here! Chin up lads and lasses!

6.) 03 Mar 2018 08:32:37
Mikewoody true very true we are all very passionate about our great club, another great post mate,

7.) 03 Mar 2018 08:52:25
One word. Wiedwald. That fat bloke from Sutton Utd is better.

Another thing I agree with Mezz. Hence ALAW. Opinions vary, always, that's life. But the one thing that unites us, is that we all want the best for our team, our club.

I'm certainly going to try and link into the rest of the U23 games. there is some serious potential in there. lots of loans out next season for experience, as there are too many to get sufficient game time with the development squad.

I'll be honest Leodis, I didn't really pay much attention to those at the back, and there was no sound or commentary on my feed, so I was really just looking at our attacking play, so can't really comment more than I have already!

There were a lot of positives from the lads last night, but there is a massive gulf between that level, and the championship. The game was very open, and free flowing, which was entertaining, but not like the mayhem and hustle of the league. I'd bring Dalby into the training squad for experience, but not yet into the matchday squad.
