Woods from Brentford is arriving apparently.
Great but if the word is true.


1.) 06 Aug 2018 22:46:57
Would be sensational if true. We'd have some team and bench. I'm still hoping Maddison as well and Kalas but trying not to be greedy.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 23:23:51
Hope you are right, if so we are set for central midfield with Woods, Forshaw, Klich, Baker and Phillips. As I see it it would be Woods and Forshaw first choice if the deal happens and when Forshaw is back from injury. Klich has a massive chance to make midfield his own tho after that performance.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 11:29:17
With Forshaw out for 6 weeks who's to say he will get back in the team? :)



30 Jul 2018 21:58:05
Vydra is a proper footballer imo and a proper loss for Leeds.
Bamford the same, a good player but can he get the 20 odd plus goals we need? A few years back for Boro he was superb so its definitely in him but i'm still not sure.
The 2 Pboro lads. Marriot for me is a big risk after one good season so let fat Frank have him but Madison looks like an assist machine. Stats can be deceptive especially in lower leagues.
We really need one if not two CBs though and i'm pretty sure the boss knows the same.


1.) 31 Jul 2018 09:36:56
The club were not happy with his attitude or wage demands and apparently his fitness was also suspect. If he was all that why wouldn't Frank want to keep him but Derby are keen to sell. Do we really want that kind of player at ER?

2.) 31 Jul 2018 12:55:14
Not sure he was a loss. Think he was above himself, how many have we seen have a prolific season sold for ten mill plus then bomb the next 3 years. Plus not sure what he would have added to team moral or if he would have gotten that head through the dressing room door.

3.) 31 Jul 2018 17:55:31
Having subsequently read of the reasons the deal fell through i have to agree Alf and BIGE. Good player though.



30 Jul 2018 21:45:48
Viera cash is a good deal. The lad showed promise but his poor passing skills would never work under Bielsa. Rather cash in now then get maybe 2 mill after him sitting on bench for a season.


1.) 31 Jul 2018 11:57:28
i agree but the deal still isn't great, his reputation at the moment is at least worth 15 mil, even though he isn't as good as people think.

2.) 31 Jul 2018 19:25:20
#CORKWHITE1.If you believe that is a good deal for Viera, I have a bridge I would like to sell you. You mention in the post above this that you think that signing Marriott and/ or Maddison would be a mistake and tbh you have a fair point. Then you seem happy to write off an England U20 international after a fairly average season by the standard he set himself in his first season, worse than that you probably don't even see the contradiction.



08 May 2018 20:32:02
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.


1.) 09 May 2018 17:34:53
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.


1.) 05 May 2018 11:00:41
Ah. Those were der days. When de boat com in!

2.) 05 May 2018 16:45:47

So so pleased for the boy. Roberts. Got plenty of stick but came up trumps tonight. Why are Leeds fans the hardest to please of all? Feck knows?


1.) 18 Sep 2018 21:41:38

2.) 18 Sep 2018 22:05:05

A man boarded an aircraft at London's Heathrow Airport for New York, and taking his seat as he settled in, he noticed a very beautiful woman boarding the plane.
He realised she was heading straight toward his seat and - bingo! - she took the seat right beside him.
"Hello", he blurted out, "Business trip or vacation? "
She turned, smiled enchantingly and said, "Business. I'm going to the annual nymphomaniac convention in the United States. "
He swallowed hard.
Here was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen sitting next to him, and she was going to a meeting for nymphomaniacs!
Struggling to maintain his composure, he calmly asked, "What's your business role at this convention? "
"Lecturer, " she responded. "I use my experience to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality. "
"Really", he smiled. "What myths are those? "
"Well, " she explained, "one popular myth is that African-American men are the most well endowed, when, in fact, it's the Native American Indian who is most likely to possess that trait.
Another popular myth is that French men are the best lovers when actually it is the men of Greek descent.
We have also found that the best potential lovers in all categories are the Irish. "
Suddenly the woman became uncomfortable, and blushed. "I'm sorry, l do apologise" she said. "I really shouldn't be discussing this with you. I don't even know your name! "
"Tonto, " the man replied. "Tonto Papadopoulos, but my friends call me Paddy. ".

A young man moved out from home and into a new apartment, All of his own, he went proudly down to the lobby to put his name on his mailbox.

While there, a stunning young lady came out of the apartment next to the mailboxes, wearing only a robe.

The boy smiled at the young woman and she started up a conversation with him.

As they talked, her robe slipped open, and it was obvious that she had nothing else on.
The poor kid broke into a sweat trying to maintain eye contact.

After a few minutes, she placed her hand on his arm and said, 'Let's go to my apartment, I hear someone coming. '

He followed her into her apartment; she closed the door and leaned against it, allowing her robe to fall off completely. Now nude, she purred at him, 'What would you say is my best feature? ' Flustered and embarrassed, he finally squeaked, 'It's got to be your ears. '

Astounded, and a little hurt she asked, 'My ears? Look at these breasts; they are a full 38 inches and 100% natural.

I work out every day and my ass is firm and solid. I have a 28 inch waist. Look at my skin - not a blemish anywhere.

How can you think that the best part of my body is my ears? '

Clearing his throat, he stammered . 'Outside, when you said you heard someone coming . that was me.

Good player he is I've never really trusted the man.
He’s always banged on about how much he loves Leeds but I reckon he’d be gone in a shot if offered higher level football and pay rise. Then again I might be wrong?

George the sign of a good team is nothing to do with the bench it’s winning games. Same team more or less last year was pony but looked different class yesterday. I see your point though.
