All the talk of the youngsters coming through is great and I see the point of getting them playing time last few games. But seriously though if we get two of them good enough for first team we'll be doing well.

CORKWHITE1

I know what your saying Corky, it's a gamble but along with Pearce, O'Connor, BPF I can see at least Shaugnessy and Edmundson playing regularily so it's not such a great stretch of the imagination to see at least two other new young guns featuring most weeks.


2.) 09 May 2018 23:59:05
Cork Disagree. 2 is below average. 3 average. 4 good. 5 excellent. We already have 5 in the first team already. BPF, Paudie, RV, Pearce and Edmondson. We need more but we already doing well on that front. Radz strategy is about youth coming through. There's still Hosannah, Rey, Shackleton, Clarke, Machuca, Sarkic, Dalby, Kun T and Wilks to come through. We could have a team and squad in about 15 months.


3.) 10 May 2018 10:03:16
3 have already shown they're upto the task. I would expect another 3 from George's list to come good in the next 12 months too. That's a pretty good return imo.


4.) 10 May 2018 10:12:52
So are we saying Orta's doing a good job? Only asking.


5.) 10 May 2018 13:02:24
Leo As purely a scout unearthing young talent from abroad, yes. I've said this for a couple months now. However, he should not be allowed anywhere near first team recruitment directly. Examples are Wiedwald and Grot. This means his job title requires immediate demotion. Director of football? Having a laugh.


6.) 10 May 2018 14:25:22
Who should be in charge of first team recruitment then George


7.) 10 May 2018 15:27:18
George I mean good enough for a promotion team. How many of the young lads will play more than 50 league games? O’Leary had a great class of youngsters but getting 5 through at once is not easy.


8.) 10 May 2018 17:08:35
Cork You have to play them to find out. We should no longer be pre-occupied with promotion. Our next task is to have a competitive first team and squad. Rest should follow. If worse thing that happens is we get up to 8th position next May but with extra youngsters coming through so be it. I'm hearing Jack Clarke is going to be a player.


9.) 10 May 2018 17:11:50
Aus Sadly, Heck. He's the manager. All he really has to do is acquire solid Championship players who combine talent with the necessary physicality. None of this watery airy fairy rubbish like Wiedwald and Grot.


10.) 10 May 2018 17:14:48
We could do a lot worse than raid the Wendies for a couple players. They are in trouble financially and with FFP rules.


11.) 10 May 2018 18:19:56
Who would you have from them george


12.) 10 May 2018 20:32:45
Grot will come good I believe


13.) 10 May 2018 21:46:04
Martyn Forestieri Hutchinson Westwood and Winnall once he returns from Derby. Forestieri would be a luxury not really needed because of Saiz and Hernandez but the rest would do nicely.


14.) 10 May 2018 22:21:54
They bought a half decent central defender from somewhere Martyn! ? I forget where! ? 😏😱😢


15.) 10 May 2018 22:57:01
They did Bright but he was treated fairly poor at Leeds. And mainly by tt the supporters.


16.) 11 May 2018 08:50:16
True that Cork!


17.) 11 May 2018 10:40:59
Mr Lee's I'm guessing? He was 100% leeds through and through


18.) 11 May 2018 11:13:02
Yes I would jump at the chance of signing Bartley, or Huth, or similar but let's not write off the the two who have filled in this year. I have to say that whenever called upon Shaugnessy, then O'Connor, have answered the call admirably. If they are mentored by some of the more senior players then the answer to our problems may already be on the payroll. This is without even looking at Struijk, Halme and Diaz. Again, wouldn't complain about the inclusion of an old head, man mountain, CB but I don't think we are in such a deep hole as some would think.


 

 

04 May 2018 23:59:34
Lads we missed the boat a couple of years back not getting Chris Hughton. My kind of manager.

3.) 06 May 2018 19:52:52
Well blow me down with a feather. I knew I’d be right one day Whiteman!


 

 

23 Apr 2018 21:35:06
Lets go and get Roy Keane as the boss! he's been learning the ropes under one of the best and he would jump at the chance to manage Leeds, even just to piss off ole red nose. He done a job at Sunderland effed up at Ipswich but at least he has a passion for the game which not many have these days. Feathered rattled i'd say, but?

CORKWHITE1

1.) 23 Apr 2018 22:31:22
Great former player, well respected and a fairly good developing coach but his previous allegiances and those tackles on AIH disqualify him. Never pervert nature but you would right there.


2.) 24 Apr 2018 15:00:11
Right again George but I had a few when posting Keane last night.


 

 

14 Apr 2018 23:45:26
Should of kept the Danish Spaniard. Ok form was bad but at least we had an identity and a way. Now everything has gone tits up. Could be wrong but I believe we'd have a rubbish load more points with TC still in charge. Ok maybe not a load more points but still.

CORKWHITE1

1.) 15 Apr 2018 06:24:42
I think he might have been too nice and lost the discipline. I thought he was our chosen one but unfortunately not. I have the champers on ice for when they get rid of the smarmy sleazy backstabbing two faced talent-less Leeds hating git Fu*kingbottom. Time for Radz to grow a pair and bring in someone that can take us to the Premier league and keep us there even if it does cost big $$. I don't think Mick McC is the one but happy with him if it gets rid of Fu*kingbottom. MoT


2.) 15 Apr 2018 07:35:19
Fredh, with you on every word mate, great post.


3.) 15 Apr 2018 17:31:47
Cork We lost our identity years ago


4.) 15 Apr 2018 18:12:56
George, he wouldn’t know,


 

 

30 Jan 2018 21:45:00
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.

CORKWHITE1

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.

1.) 13 May 2018 23:56:24
Either he scored with his SIL and is making a new life with her or he's now supporting Lincoln City (we should go for Cowley) or he's just a glory hunter like I said. We will probably hear from him again when we're winning regularly.


2.) 14 May 2018 10:28:05
So that’s not for a long long time then George!


 

 

03 Apr 2018 16:06:47
Lads great value bet tonight is Pennington 1st goal @ 70/1. got to be worth a tenner!

CORKWHITE1

1.) 03 Apr 2018 18:33:56
Corky, even I wouldn't touch that but what I would recommend Pontus to score anytime and to be carded, 40/1.


2.) 03 Apr 2018 18:38:40
What odds do you think I would get on us winning every game till end of season, finishing seventh and missing out on the playoffs by one point?


 

 

25 Feb 2018 19:42:52
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

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.

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!

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

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

Big Sam? Dunno really. Football piss poor but has decent track record over the years. A bit like Wilko although Howard did get us playing great football contrary to what some say. Sam knows how to set up a team so that would do for me so I’d probably say Yes.

Bartley injured again. The two posh players are way over priced imo for the level they’ve been playing at. As for McGeady no thanks. Maddison of the two of what I've seen has a better chance of stepping up but what do I know as I thought Sean maguire at Preston had little chance of making the step up!
