I see Hugil out of Preston squad tonight. Is it possible he's on his way to ER? Saw him play once and while no Messi he's a good good forward. 8 mill a lot but but could possibly turn out a bargain.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 22:48:38
Crystal Palace have had an £8m bid accepted apparently

2.) 30 Jan 2018 22:52:30
Think he is PL bound unfortunately, plus maybe over priced?

3.) 30 Jan 2018 23:49:13
Over prived. Should fit in at palace with that bentekkers fella then

4.) 30 Jan 2018 23:51:30
Definitely overpriced IMHO :)

5.) 31 Jan 2018 16:54:59
Watched him last year at ER looked as good as wood. 15 mill wood. 8 mill hugely.

6.) 31 Jan 2018 17:03:56



10 Jan 2018 00:25:00
If we still had Bartley Taylor and Wood would we be higher up table? Yes imo. Three big loses let's not forget that. I agree lots of buys are iffy at best but some can improve. The amount of stick Grot gets at ER is disgraceful for a young lad learning the game. Some fans can kill a player and it's just counterproductive. Anyway maybe by next week Rad will have brought in what we need, a striker and maybe another striker who are fit and ready to roll.


1.) 10 Jan 2018 01:38:09
I agree about Taylor, Wood and Bartley CW, I would also add Cook, Green and Byram to that even though we let him go a bit earlier, and you have a solid back four with them and a good keeper, I even think we should of kept hold of Silvester the cat, and we should of pulled out all the stops to get Stockdale the Leeds supporting keeper then we would of been a different kettle of fish. Wood up front with Alioski, Roofe and Siaz, now that wolf of been good! Good post CW.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 07:10:32
Picturing that lineup now mikey. stockdale, ayling, jansson, barts, taylor, vieira, cook, ideguchi, saiz, wood, hernandez. wow imo that's a premier league team.

3.) 11 Jan 2018 12:36:17
If we still had, Good point, WHO GOT RID OF THEM, Christ Sake.

4.) 11 Jan 2018 16:00:37
Taylor was out of contract and Wood wanted to go. Not much we could have done about that I don't think.



07 Jan 2018 20:35:50
I'm not saying we're going to make the play offs, but if we do the manager will deserve lots of credit. After losing three of best players from last season it would be an amazing achievement. Wood Taylor and on loan Bartley were top players in this division. Again I'm not saying we will make the playoffs but you never know. At start of season I had us down as top ten at best. Some will say after today we have no chance any they might be right but as it stands.


1.) 08 Jan 2018 09:02:46
We didn't lose Bartley as we never owned him

2.) 09 Jan 2018 09:53:32
Didn't loose Bartley but didn't replace him.



02 Jan 2018 11:54:01
Is it just me but if we still had a fit Chris Wood we we would be better off by at least 7-9 points? There is the problem imo. We don't have a focal point of attack. In this league it's small margins and a proper striker is paramount.


1.) 02 Jan 2018 14:56:28
Hard to say - he may have grabbed a few goals but our whole style would have needed to change to suit his style so where we would have scored through him in some games we wouldn’t have scored in others.

2.) 05 Jan 2018 10:08:07
If ekuban didn't keep breaking we'd be a few points better off too We are where we are No point in worrying about stuff we can't control Blinking worried about Newport tho😬



20 Nov 2017 08:55:46
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".


1.) 20 Nov 2017 22:55:12
Why because you won once from 7 or 8? Lol please your a terrible team

2.) 20 Nov 2017 22:56:16
Good performance you managed to get 2 shots on target lol you won because boro were shockingly poor.

3.) 21 Nov 2017 08:18:33
The best team score more goals! Like west ham did matey. Remember? Way below you in the league but turned you over proper! weren't you like. Winning 2-0 in that one? What was the final score now dribble chops?

4.) 21 Nov 2017 19:19:27
Nice to see you back Swadlad. Did you enjoy the North London derby?

5.) 21 Nov 2017 22:15:58
Westham game was in a Micky mouse cup so really didn't matter as you don't support Tottenham to want to win a terrible cup and against arsenal in another boring cup competition Tottenham lost to a very good arsenal team so no I can accept that. More importantly Tottenham won real Madrid and tonight they won Dortmund in the only cup competition that means anything to quality teams ;) you lot won 2-1 v Middlesbrough and on Facebook you were all saying what a great performance lmao how can a 2-1 win be a great performance? Lol 4-0 or 4-1 is a great performance 2-1 is a close game lol but to be fair the way Leeds have played you probably do think that's a great performance lol. Try winning Dortmund 2-1 and real Madrid 3-1 and then come back with your great performance hype lol not little boro lol. Wolves for you tomorrow, that's the game your going to see just how easy you are to play against lol take derby for example 1-0 up n then you lost 2-1 because you bottled it once again lol and as for your shot on target rate well that's the most embarrassing thing about Leeds lol it's nearly every game you get 1 or 2 shots on target n your surprised why you lose lmao clueless Leeds united. ;)

6.) 22 Nov 2017 05:49:33
Won them. So cute. Lol. Quality arsenal team?

7.) 22 Nov 2017 06:58:47
If winning 2-1 is not a 'quality performance' why you piping up about beating dortmund when it was 2-1?

8.) 22 Nov 2017 10:42:55
Because Dortmund are Dortmund and Middlesbrough are Middlesbrough lol. Yes won them that's English you fool haha, yes arsenal are a quality team lol unlike you Leeds fans i still know if a rival team is quality or not lol arsenal have always been a quality team just like the other top teams like man city, united, Tottenham, Liverpool and Chelsea. You Leeds fans wouldn't know about quality teams as the championship doesn't have any lol love the fact you try to slag Tottenham of for losing to westham n arsenal in cup games no one cares about lol it's all about finishing in the top 5 of the premiership and getting as far as possible in the champions league, yes I said top 5 in the premiership because I'm realistic and know that mancity will win the league because they have better players as do man united and chelsea. Just because you support a team Leeds fans doesn't mean you can't use your eyes to see there are better teams than yours in the league lol your league has about 10 teams better than Leeds team ;) derby, Middlesbrough, wolves, Fulham, reading, Cardiff, Norwich, Ipswich, Sheffield united and Sheffield Wednesday. Yes I know you won some of them like boro and Ipswich but Tottenham won real Madrid and Dortmund still doesn't mean Tottenham are a better team than real Madrid or Dortmund just good games :) that's what you lot don't get lol.

{Ed001's Note - won them is not English. Perhaps you should try spending some time learning the correct usage and grammar before trying to correct others? I am not even sure what 'won them' is.}

9.) 22 Nov 2017 11:49:54
Sooo funny. His messages are so entertaining. He is prob only about 11 or 12 bless. I used to want him blocked. Now he just makes me laugh. Those spurs fans must be a bright bunch. LOL! Gives us southerners a bad name.

Message to George and others. O'Kane imo is a good midfielder. Played well start of season but granted not so well lately but that doesn't mean he can't do a good job for us. If fans get on players backs it is always to the detriment of team. Viera after a good season last year has been poor this term but not too many are getting on his back. Maybe it's because he's home grown?

Cooper another getting stick. Ok he makes mistakes, too many to be fair, but he's a trier and doesn't hide when the going is tough. Let's stop getting on players backs and support them for the dozen games and who knows. MOT


1.) 25 Feb 2018 19:55:24
They all wanted lassy hanging 2 months ago Cork. Short memories Leeds fans I'm afraid

2.) 25 Feb 2018 20:19:57
Cork You are right. RV does get a pass from me. He gets a pass because he's young and homegrown. I'm biased like that. What irritates me with Okane is he puts himself in the media spotlight a lot with his pretty humanist wife nonsense yet he's not playing well. In my book, you can be on social media often as you like provided you are in form. Otherwise, be quiet and work on your game. As for Lassie, you need to direct your comments to Wex not me. All I've said he just needed to lose a bit of timber and we have a player. That's what happened. Notts said it best. Sometimes fans need to voice their concerns in order for things to change. Example crestgate. Leeds fans are best in world. Knowledgeable, articulate and funny. Ignore and marginalize them at your peril. #Leedsfansbestinworld

3.) 25 Feb 2018 20:28:52
Hold my hands up George lassoga has improved immensely. Hopefully he keeps it up

4.) 25 Feb 2018 20:57:16
got stick for praising lassoga. same with wood i seem to remember if only all leeds fans would listen to good old Bermo as I tell the wife daily I am never wrong. With regards to our MF, okane is decent and can play well but think he gets lost, needs someone like forshaw next to him to get the most from him and to show his class. Veria had poor form but is young and will improve and form will pick up as often happens with players of young age. the one who baffles me is phillips, yes the lad does have some quality on the ball but not enough quality really and he is too slow, not mobile enough, doesn't do enough. I would be happy is phillips never plays for leeds again as he is not good enough, sadly the other one for me is roofe, i have stuck up for roofe in past and said he has something, he has some qaulity but again not enough and doesn't do enough. is the last game saiz touched the ball more in 90 seconds than roofe did in the previous 70 minutes. again be happy if he never plays for us again, bit like doukara not a terrbile player but we need better if going to go up

5.) 25 Feb 2018 22:38:00
We are all entitled to our opinions good or bad, nobody on here is an expert and nobody should apologise for what they post! What makes us Leeds fans different to others is that we dare to dream and we say it out loud, we make no excuses for bad games and we don’t excuse any player that fails to show up on match day! George your comments are great, Wex, just as good and Corkwhite you are a true honest poster, we wouldn’t be proper Leeds fans if we didn’t moan nor would we be true if we all watched through yellow, white and blue glasses, nobody on here should make excuses for a from the heart opinion. MOT

6.) 26 Feb 2018 18:35:32
speak for yourself Mike I am definatly an expert, always know when a player will come good, I can read the game like a book and never, ever wrong just ask the wife!

Wish we still had Peter Swan. Obviously his younger version!


1.) 30 Jan 2018 23:46:22
I used to work with Peter Swan Corkwhite, he works for a company that is owned by John Beresford and they do shop fitting, Swanny is a fit out designer! Great bloke and he’s the type of player we could do with eh mate, Mel Sterland, Batty, Harland, Vinny etc, some meaty players that mix it with the best, not many like those nowadays mate. MOT



08 Jan 2018 22:57:05
Whiteman15, I'm guessing that 15 is your age? Why so negative the whole time? After losing Taylor, Swansea CB and then Wood I thought 8-12 position was about right for us. Anyone who thought top six was a banker at start of season was in cloud nine. TC is doing fine by me with the players he has and with no control over transfers. Did you believe we were nailed on for promotion or what?

Ok the manager is still learning the league but is doing reasonably well. Apart from Wolves every other team is hit and miss and I've seen many teams live through my job. I saw Villa twice and they were awful. The good posters on here. gummie Mick George Wex Alf i'm pretty sure all realize the same. Sorry if I missed you out as there are lots of good posters on here!


1.) 08 Jan 2018 23:13:06
CW, Read other post on this site am I the only one, NO, sometime its best to let people who can’t see, won’t see get on with it, happy days.

2.) 08 Jan 2018 23:33:09
Bloody hell Corkwhite, that’s a tad vicious isn’t it? We are all entitled to our opinion good or bad, personally I think Whiteman posts good points and in honesty, myself, Mezzer, Aus, Bige, Leodis and many others see it the same but that doesn’t mean we are right does it, but what we all do is support Leeds! We have been in this league for 14 years, it’s about time we were heading the right way out of it by now but we won’t get anywhere by buying cheap crap, if Lasogga was that good why did he come to us, the same with many of the others and it’s all well and good progressing in the U23’s, but we want to be progressing in the Championship. We finished 7th under MC so this year should show further intent but we have a poor squad and a Manager that thinks our strike force is good enough! As a paying supporter, I like Whiteman, Mezzer, Aus, Bige and others demand better for our hard earned money! Sorry Corkwhite, nothing personal it’s just our views whether 12, 13, 15 or 100 year old, we are entitled without causing offence! MOT

You missed me cork 🙁?

4.) 09 Jan 2018 03:29:28
Cork writes a good post here. Little to none of what's going on is the fault of TC. He is on a championship learning curve and doesn't have sufficient local talent or players of steel. That's the fault of Orta and Radz. They've overcooked the whole "for the future" thing. Hardly a surprise given their foreign status. I'm not a xenophobe but many of us posters know this league better than they do. Start of season I saw us as either just in or just outside the playoffs. However, all is not lost. A good window buying British talent and we could make 2nd. Over to Orta and Radz. Don't get me wrong though because TC ought to have a superior knowledge of English football by now. This is his job after all but I can give him a season but only a season to bed in. Acquiring them lads from Peterborough good place to start.

5.) 09 Jan 2018 07:11:49
last sentence made that post. i'm of the same opinion on TC, the pulis' bruces, rowetts, warnocks of thsi league all know what they're doing and have for years, some have succeeded and come back to make themselves look better, some just don't have what it takes to cut the premier league. TC is an unknown quantity still in my book. 6 months with players he hasn't selected from the same budget orta was given. I'd struggle as would most, can't say he hasn't tried though and isn't implementing new ideas. Vio and the rest of the coaching staff prove that leeds are looking to try new things. It's an experiment and a journey, bottom line is the only people indispensible within this club and the only people who will stay forever are the fans. its not over until FT at QPR, who saw sheff utd, cardiff, bristol, wolves all up there at the start of the year? Be a long 5 months.

6.) 09 Jan 2018 13:26:24
How could I forget you Aus? You’re one the site legends! Vicious? In what way? You must have lead a very sheltered life mate.



07 Jan 2018 19:27:49
Isn't it funny how many jump on the bandwagon after a poor result? There's been more negative comments after this defeat with a reserve team than positve comments after any win this season. While I agree the likes of lassogo and cbj look like a waste of time the squad ain't a million miles off. Get in a striker with pace movement strength and obviously a few goals and we be thereabouts. Personally I wouldn't believe TCs comments about being ok for forwards.


1.) 07 Jan 2018 20:38:13
and a goalie

2.) 07 Jan 2018 20:44:13
Not jumping on the band wagon been saying it for awhile. Have you not witnessed how poor we are playing, even when we won a few the team been playing poor. Is it a crime to want us to strengthen and at least try to push on. It's very well building a squad that maybe might come good in the future, but we can be in with a shout now will a bit of strengthening. Sorry to jump on the band wagon but have seen this time and time again.

3.) 07 Jan 2018 21:11:43
We shall see how strong the squad is with Saiz missing for potentially six games.

4.) 07 Jan 2018 21:12:19
Don't think it's as straightforward as that mate. Don't make every match but we have scraped a few lucky wins when been outplayed recently. You could say that's the mark of a good team, maybe so in the odd game but not when it keeps happening. Specifically today, I think there's a general feeling of frustration that we've been embarrassed again in round 3 by a lower league team; as against Sutton last year we made wholesale changes and paid the price, despite the fact we don't play again until next weekend.

Today, Forest played a strong team and are through, Spurs rested a few but still had Kane, Dembele, Lamela, Vertonghen and other strong players in their line up and they've still got Champions League and Prem ambitions to consider. I think our first 11 is not a million miles off as you say, if you mean a play off place (the club's stated target) but we lack strength in depth.

For example, if Saiz is out for 6 matches as has been suggested, where is the creativity to come from? Most of the recruitment has been for the development teams with youngsters from top european academies, but even if this does pay off, it could be several years before one or two make the breakthrough. Meanwhile the £20m from the Wood and Taylor sales which we would like to see spent on proven battle hardened players who can perform in this division remains unspent.

If there is a 1/3/5 year plan then great, we've been out the top flight for 14 years, so what's a few more but sometimes you have to wonder. As someone posted, seems like Groundhog Day again and again. Enough said, going for a few beers. ALAW

What a load of bull its obvious what we need, sorry bud.

6.) 07 Jan 2018 22:39:38
Jeez you can't compare Leeds squad to Spurs.

7.) 08 Jan 2018 00:21:38
Wish some would jump of this bandwagon and see the wood trough the trees,

8.) 08 Jan 2018 00:11:25
Trouble is it was not a reserve team was it. Everyone who played is in the first team squad. If the young lads had been blooded would not have minded so much, would have had more fight than the team that was out there.

9.) 08 Jan 2018 00:15:29
If you can’t believe his comments about a striker your not a Leeds fan

10.) 08 Jan 2018 10:27:10

Fair play Chris Wood. Showing his worth again.


1.) 29 Nov 2017 21:21:43
Yep, another few, and we'll be getting a few more million. we have Samu Saiz.

Tell that to George will ya Mighty. He seems to think we can leave out Saiz and Hernandez. There is no way we can play two strikers with them in the team, or even one of them for that matter. Imagine two strikers with Saiz and Hernandez behind them, the midfield would be totally over run.
