Gonna make a prediction. Leeds will buy back Lewis Cook in the not to distant future.
Ok I've had a few but it will happen!


1.) 02 Oct 2018 10:54:01
I'm going to make a prediction too cork. I'm going to get ruined tonight in Las Americas.

2.) 02 Oct 2018 15:17:43
I’m going to make a prediction, Martyn is right! Have a good one!

3.) 02 Oct 2018 17:37:11
Oh you made it Martyn 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Great to hear mate, watch the game in Linekers then hit Veronica’s for a late night boogie?

4.) 02 Oct 2018 17:37:12
Think spurs will outbid us on cook

Milner will sign on a free.

5.) 02 Oct 2018 18:51:30
Don't do veronica, s class. Too many whipper snappers their to push me patience if ya dig me drift 😉 I'll stick to Buzz bar and bulls head it keeps me out of bother.

6.) 02 Oct 2018 21:13:08
Me too Martyn that was tongue firmly in cheek!
Have a great time mate 👍.



25 Sep 2018 21:26:50
Just had a bit of a ding dong with a fellow Leeds fan. He says we under achieved under O'Leary. I say the opposite.
My point was how many of that team would of got in to the Man United team?
Woodgate Ferdinand and Viduka were my opinion. Maybe Gary Kelly.
That team done well imo just a shame things went tits up.


1.) 25 Sep 2018 23:37:50
I personally love that thing, getting to the champions league semi finals is great with the team we had. Tremendous heart. But we underachieved in the fact we didn't win anything, which we probably could've.

2.) 26 Sep 2018 00:26:39
What about dacourt.

3.) 26 Sep 2018 00:29:13
Oh yea and Alan Smith. Oh yea he did get on the man u team. Then there's paul Robinson and radebe who man u tried to buy.

4.) 26 Sep 2018 08:26:28
Dacourt wouldn’t of gotten in above Keane or Scholes and Smith was only a bit part player there. Can’t believe I forgot about Radebe though!

5.) 26 Sep 2018 10:27:04
Sorry Cork ya mate was correct!

6.) 26 Sep 2018 12:35:21
I think we overachieved in the European Cup, but definitely underachieved in all the other competitions, even the League Cup woulda been nice :)

7.) 26 Sep 2018 13:28:56
Ok it would of been nice to win a domestic cup competition but in all honesty we weren’t quite at the level needed for the big trophies although only two or three signings short.
They were great times and I reckon we’re going to see em again soon enough!

8.) 27 Sep 2018 22:31:11
Bowyer was immense in Europe the shining light in that team. Also viduka.

9.) 28 Sep 2018 00:30:42
Don't forget Dom Matteo who scored that goal at the San Siro.

10.) 28 Sep 2018 19:17:10
Harry Kewell.

11.) 29 Sep 2018 14:48:05
Corky We certainly didn't overachieve. If anything, we more underachieved because at the peak of our powers we were a game for anyone. Looking back, one of the errors I believe O'leary made was the underuse of Robbie Keane who was a greater goal threat than Smith.

12.) 01 Oct 2018 11:45:40
Grayson, don't mention the Kboy ;)

13.) 01 Oct 2018 17:40:13
I now he left under a cloud but he was a bit special.



06 Aug 2018 21:30:32
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.

I recently started having sexual liaisons with a blind woman. It has its challenges though. Took me ages to get her husbands voice bang on!


1.) 16 Nov 2018 16:00:21
Another good one Cork!



11 Nov 2018 19:49:14
Remember these words. Leeds United will win the championship.
I've seen nothing from any other team to believe otherwise. A bad day yesterday but these things happen.


1.) 11 Nov 2018 20:25:46
Not with BPF in goal we won't.

2.) 11 Nov 2018 21:06:01
Love your post Corkie, brought a smile to my face after reading about all the doom and gloom. Good on you!

3.) 11 Nov 2018 21:13:34
I agree Corkie, and so do the bookies, we're still 7/2 favourites to win the league.

4.) 11 Nov 2018 21:49:44
We can dream all we like, and yes we are in the mix, but the current squad isn't quite good enough so additions have to be made in January, if we do this then we are in with a chance.

5.) 12 Nov 2018 14:06:31
I’m with Corkie

Dare to dream boys

There’s a unity in the team I’ve not seen in nearly 20 years

Best way to deal with a defeat like that one is to forget it and win the next game.

6.) 12 Nov 2018 20:30:31
Study it. Learn from it. Put it away. Move on.



29 Oct 2018 20:36:20
Missed the game at weekend but watched it today. Young kid Clarke does look the business I thought. I realize he came on when forest were on the back foot and maybe tiring but he looked so positive and got some great balls in and almost scored a wonder strike. It was great to see but can the lads who watch the kids play regularly give their input on whether he can/ should start?


1.) 29 Oct 2018 22:10:25
I still think share the shift with Someone else and gradually increase his time on the pitch . He’s 17 and I think he’s still developing his physique and fitness . I still prefer having him to come on later, when as you say the defenders are tiring. He has no fear, will try to go past people, make killer passes and score. He will make some errors and sometimes lose the ball in dangerous positions because it’s part of the no fear. It would be nice to have Edmundson on the bench as well, because they both offer something different, like Edmundsons scrappy toe poke goal today, and they are used to playing together.

2.) 30 Oct 2018 09:14:04
Think Clarke should start and bring Alioski on later, he will have more influence on the game and it might shake Alioski up a bit. Ed worth minutes on pitch at some point, rate him above Roberts. He only had one leg to stand on when he did that scrappy toe poke. Shows his determination.

3.) 30 Oct 2018 12:51:34
I think Clarke deserves a start too, and you’re right bige, Alioski could do with feeling his place is under threat to make him step up another gear again.

4.) 30 Oct 2018 16:45:13
As you said Brighty trust Bielsa, he will know best how to look after Clarke.

5.) 30 Oct 2018 18:13:41
I like to see Clarke coming on after the hour mark when we've run the opposition ragged :)

6.) 30 Oct 2018 20:11:39
I agree with you Al, just makes it a little easier for him as well.

7.) 31 Oct 2018 09:20:35
Totally Spanish!



29 Oct 2018 20:27:57
Is it me or does Saiz play too deep. He keeps picking the ball up way to often in his own half instead of playing off the striker. I realize he's good at running from deep positions but if he pushed forward a bit he could create lots more havoc even though he'd see less of the ball.


1.) 29 Oct 2018 20:36:04
Couldn’t agree more, been saying the same for the last 6 games, last season he got in the box a lot more and a lot of times was out furthest man fwd, must be how he’s been told to play this season?

2.) 30 Oct 2018 21:46:11
I have a feeling that Mr Saiz might find himself out of the matchday squad altogether over the next few weeks. He was overshadowed by the boy Clarke when they both came on at the same time on Saturday.

3.) 31 Oct 2018 08:47:02
Al, sammy just needs a goal. highly strung, emotional player and things are not falling for him, can see is frustration. goals are everything to a player like this but on his day he is superb, as we know.

4.) 31 Oct 2018 11:48:16
Agree with you Gilesey, won’t be out of the match day squad unless injured. He always brings something . Even during his poorer performances, he has still contributed to goals and some of his moves just mm away from coming off. Clarke and him are different types of players and actually would complement each other well. I’d like to see Saiz on form with Clarke and Hernadez, that would be exciting. Honestly think Saiz is trying to hard and fretting.



15 Oct 2018 22:17:07
Watched the Vinnie Jones, Gascoigne talk sport show. Wasted an hour really and forgot how much a tit Vinnie can be. Poor Gazza hasn't got a clue and Jones boasting about his success. Sad really. And I'm sick of Leeds fans saying Jones could play. He really couldn't play at all. c'mon he made Chris Kamara look like Sheridan.
If he was anyway decent, Wilko would of kept him after promotion but couldn't wait to off him to Sheffield.


1.) 15 Oct 2018 22:35:52
I like Chris Kamara. So blank, he's funny.

2.) 16 Oct 2018 00:50:58
A bit harsh, with respect. Yes, Vinnie couldn’t really ‘play’ in one sense, which is no doubt why Wilko replaced him with McAllister when we got promoted. But IMHO - he - or a player like him - was what we needed then and dare I say now to help take us up. He was central to our promotion in 1990. Tough, physical and noisy - and prepared to read the fortune of those opposition ‘hard men’ who targeted his more skilful colleagues. Is anyone really looking after Saiz or Pablo in that way at the moment? And Gascoigne? I wonder what Southgate would have given to have a player of his creative calibre available to him at the World Cup?

3.) 16 Oct 2018 00:58:57
Ps. And sorry - but I’m on the scotch - Pontus clearly should not have sworn on live tv bearing in mind who may be watching - but for a panel of ‘experts’ to be unable to decide whether Canos head butted Alioski is ‘odd’. My 8 year old asked - ‘why did he do that Dad? ’.

4.) 16 Oct 2018 01:53:21
Wilko said that letting Vinnie go was one of his big mistakes.

5.) 16 Oct 2018 10:58:07
Not quite up there with selling Cantona to the vomits for a piffling £1m like.

6.) 16 Oct 2018 11:48:28
Agree manston. Vinnie was important for our promotion and he could play a bit too, when he wanted to.
Exactly Stafford.

7.) 16 Oct 2018 13:29:52
And Vinnie only got 3 yellows in our promotion winning season. How he got away with that beggars belief.

8.) 16 Oct 2018 15:52:17
Yeah BIGE, another one that used to amaze me with how hegot away with rugby tackles was the (almost) legendary Gunner Halle :)

9.) 17 Oct 2018 17:28:46
Loved Sir Vincent! Wilko brought him to sort out dressing room issues, which he did almost immediately by chinning Bobby Davison, who Wilko saw as a trouble maker. I think it was his debut, when he came on as a sub, so fired up, he charged on, caught his studs and fell over! Loved his pre match Hawaii Five O rowing too! Character!

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.

I dunno why but I felt bad for the man. Maybe it’s because I don’t hold grudges. Life is too short lads.
