Absolutely delighted for TC. Good win and performance. Many times last season we nicked close matches under Monk but this campaign the tight games have gone against us. We could easily of won a couple of more games if no little luck. Maybe, hopefully shut up certain negative so called Leeds "fans".

i can understand selling wood for 20 plus. but i can not make sense of selling him now with nobody lined up. i want promotion this season and believe we have our best chance for a decade. this is the poorest championship for a long long time and we have every chance. i don't understand folk saying we should definitely take the cash for wood. why? lufc is not skint. why take away almost 50% of our goals from last season. who else will score even 10 plus. roofe? alioski? not a chance. it does not make sense to sell wood even at 20 miilion.


1.) 17 Aug 2017 23:46:34
Because once a player gets premier league interest in there head they start playing like absolute dog poo, which will mean we get less when we eventually do sell them.

2.) 17 Aug 2017 23:48:28
Clearly his head is turned already. I reckon between roofe, ekuban, Ali, etc., we will be fine. Can always invest in January if things aren't dropping our way. I don't see this side (without wood) in a relegation scrap. 18mil would be silly money to turn down, I reckon. Would gladly see us spend 5 or so on helander and 5 on someone like Bradshaw

3.) 18 Aug 2017 05:26:37
I Love Wood as I do with all the players on our team, But I honestly think last year was a one off for him. I would break Burnleys arm for 20m. This time last year we were talking about only bringing him on in the last 30 minutes as he was so slow. take the 20 I say. MOT

4.) 18 Aug 2017 09:00:25
I think with the Wood situation, it all depends! It depends on what the deals actually are in terms of cash now and future money, on how much Wood is really agitating to go and on what alternatives we already have on the table. Someone who really knows the answer to all of that then needs to make a judgement call, it becomes a business decision. Given the recruitment so far, I can't believe that they haven't thought about this as a possibility, therefore there should be a plan b, c, d etc. Or we have really decided that however much we get offered, how ever much Wood wants away, we are just going to say No. personally I think the latter is hard to believe so I hope we've got a good plan b, c and d!

5.) 18 Aug 2017 09:35:51
if wood does go. and it is silly money for a great return last season, he reminds me of when beckford scored for fun. but how many did he miss. If mcbadgekisser is linked i'd take him providing he takes a massive paycut to prove he wants to come back and play football, because he certainly does know where the back of the net is.

6.) 18 Aug 2017 11:13:43
January isn't the time to buy behave, over inflated prices as values know you are more desperate for the players. Some managers refuse to do any buissines in january.

7.) 18 Aug 2017 12:41:47
Fair point, Martyn, but I'm taking about if we were to get there and we're in free fall, crashing through the bottom of the league - which, I absolutely cannot see with our current crop. We snap up someone with a bit about them, I don't see how we won't score goals. We bought wood for 3. If we sell him for 18, we're +15mil. That's a pretty good place to be for Leeds and in this division. I think the above comment is right. If we get wee Ross back, he takes a decent pay cut, to prove his desire to wear the shirt again, and he only costs us 3-6mil, We're up 10mil on Wood, who I honestly don't ever see scoring 30 in a season again, or being valued anywhere close to 15m+. I think we missed a massive trick not trying to get Joe Garner. For 1mil, I think he'll be the signing of the summer for the division. Him or Mendez-Laing at Cardiff, who has started very well.

Dont think u understand a lot cork.

Please explain then Aus. You can wait until you are sober if you like.



13 Aug 2017 19:53:18
What really amazes me is some folk saying cash in on Wood. Say 20 mill. Buy a striker for 10 and a CB for 5 and keep the other 5 for January. Absolute fools. These lads must believe if we buy a striker for 10 mill and a CB for 5 mill that said striker is guaranteed to score 20 plus goals and the new centre back will be like Bobby Moore. Jesus effing H. Wood is a poor footballer but like Gary Lineker will alaways score goals. Well at least in championship. If we sell Wood we are abso effed imo. Who will score the goals? A few have said Roofe. i'd be happy if he scored 8 goals this season as he is not a goalscorer! We have to keep Wood


1.) 13 Aug 2017 22:50:44
This post illustrates why we bump heads Corky. There are no guarantees in life or football. Yes there's no guarantee of Wood's replacement scoring 20 goals but equally there's no guarantee Wood will hit 20 either. Yes Wood more likely to hit 20 because he's here at Leeds already but we do have a new manager so things aren't going to revolve around him anymore like they did under 🙉. An opportunity to 6 fold your investment is too enticing Corky. For 16m+ I'd sell and hope we can use the money wisely for the remaining part of the transfer window. Selling players for top £ is what frequently keeps vast majority of clubs going. We are part of that vast majority. He's a sell for me at the right price.

2.) 13 Aug 2017 23:01:15
It will be great if Wood stays and he scores another 20-30 goals, particularly if he wants to stay. But none of that is guarenteed either. Might depend a lot on him and how much he does or doesn't want to go. If he does go not impossible either that we could buy a 20 plus striker and a decent defender, depends on the quality of the recruitment. I guess that's the challenge for the Management team. The coach has made his position very clear and I would imagine that he knows the views of the chairman.

3.) 14 Aug 2017 00:07:43
If Swansea wanna give us 12 and Bartley I think if we offered 12 for Troy deeney a day put him on high wages we'd get him or Conner wickham who are around better footballers

4.) 14 Aug 2017 01:00:10
Not a goalscorer. Based on? How many times has he led our line? Twice? Roofe is very good forward. Wood is a poor footballer and if we get 20 mil, I'd be satisfied. We could even get away with playing alioski as the forward or switching to a false 9 and using a bigger midfielder as a holdup man. I think we've got enough to get us through regardless. We do need a couple of defenders. There are enough good target men out there that won't cost the earth. Roofe is perfectly capable when given the chance. That's a guarantee!

5.) 14 Aug 2017 10:12:25
Rhodes past his best -clearly in decline; many of those goals were years ago, and in League 1. Most likel would end up another Morison scenario -just more expensive.

6.) 14 Aug 2017 10:13:29
Roofe to lead the line? He's 5 foot 9!

7.) 14 Aug 2017 11:03:02
Wood a poor footballer lol you Leeds fans have no idea atall, he's a class striker who needs a better team with players who can cross unlike Hadi sacko lol wood does his job perfectly it's not his fault Leeds have awful wide players who can't cross.

8.) 14 Aug 2017 11:17:22
20 mill for wood is good business. I like him, he's chapman-esque. not a great player, but a great goal scorer. If we sell, and reinvest wisely, we will be better off. The dynamic of the team has changed, and a better footballer, as opposed to just a goal scorer would suit our team better, given the way we've set up since TC came in.

9.) 14 Aug 2017 18:54:12
Think a more realistic figure for wood is 12-16 mil As for replacement I think, if not Roofe, then Saiz could do a job up front. Slippery as an eel and technically gifted. Not a line leader but get the ball in the box and I can see him putting it away.

Collective ignorance would be bliss as far as 88 is concerned. Ookin Ftool.

Very sad news i'm hearing. Liam Miller has only hours/days to live. Pancreatic cancer.


1.) 13 Nov 2017 16:57:56
Aye, thoughts to him and his family. Sad news for any family.



06 Nov 2017 21:32:46
We have NO forwards. Biggest problem we have by far.


1.) 07 Nov 2017 07:02:26
Not that seem to be able to score.

2.) 07 Nov 2017 08:31:54
Who knows if cibiki would score? !



02 Nov 2017 10:48:40
Ayling and Roofe need dropping. Roofe does little imo and has had plenty of opportunities but never stakes his claim. Alioski the same but is new to the league and i can see the potential. Team for Saturday. Lonergan. Anita Cooper Jansson Beradi. Alioski Viera OKane Dallas. Saiz. Lassonga. 442.


1.) 02 Nov 2017 11:03:26
Got to agree about Roofe, waste of £3m IMO. Not playing in his natural position but you have to question why both Monk and TC do not play him there. Roofe has a poor scoring record, does not beat his man and avoids physical contact with the opposition. His saving grace is that no-one else is ripping up trees on the wing either

2.) 02 Nov 2017 13:32:11
Hern and roofe and phillips and grot and cjibicki and klich all better than aliiski as a starter.

3.) 02 Nov 2017 16:42:12
Grot. Holy feck ausman. Are you for real. ? I'm amazed he's even been in last few squads. He's really carp. Dunno what matches youv seem. But phew. That's some statement. Even others you've mentioned. 😂😂😂

4.) 03 Nov 2017 11:40:53
Sorry Bats, got to say I am a fan of Grots. He needs work, I agree. Someone should push him on the training pitch widen his armoury and then he needs a long run of games to show improvement. Whether that's in the first team or reserves I don't know but the only way you get better is in games, not sat on a bench.



27 Oct 2017 21:31:45
Some job Wilder has done. A bunch of rejects and past-its. Lots of work to be done at ER. We are miles off i'm afraid.


1.) 27 Oct 2017 21:39:39
They wanted it more. Their players not afraid too put it in where it hurts. To me grot and lassoga are carp. Shouldn't even be in the squad. To say I'm cheesed off is an under statement . I know we've improved from last year. But at least show a bit off guts.

2.) 27 Oct 2017 22:04:50
Very true our team won't be in the play off Unless January brings us some championship quality players

3.) 28 Oct 2017 08:23:12
We seriously need two quality strikers. Lazyogga is trash and Grot is a giant GOAT! Where is Stuart Dallas? TC has lost 5 out of last 6 and it will continue to go downhill fast. AR you need to kick some backsides.



26 Oct 2017 18:27:42
Didnt see the Bristol game so can anyone tell me what formation we played. I've had conflicting stories on this. Was it the 4231 with Viera in Phillips role and KP pushed into the number 10 position or as Notts says a more basic 433?


1.) 26 Oct 2017 20:03:47
Was 4-2-3-1 with Philips in the no 10 role 👍🏻

2.) 26 Oct 2017 23:38:34
As far as I know it was 4,3,3

3.) 27 Oct 2017 08:19:29
Cura is correct.

4.) 27 Oct 2017 08:51:26
I thought it more like 4231

Fair do's george. i'm all for playing youth team players, if they are good enough. Saw the lad on TV against Luton and he looked a fair bit off first team. He has potential and has been touted last couple of years but is raw and his goalscoring record s poor.

Bang on Dave. I said before game it wasnt a match for Saiz, Alioski and Hernandez. We had to beef up the midfield and it was a perfect time to change up the team. Dallas Grot and Viera were the obvious.

In fairness Lucas most on here said Wood wasnt worth the 3 plus paid. Gustede did look tasty a couple of years back at Bburn. The lad is big and strong, great in the air and has a nice touch. Maybe we should trust the powers as so far their recruitment has been good.

How is he swapping around the team? One to three changes at most in league games. And. and most importantly TC has not been responsible for the dross we have bought.
