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.



17 aug 2017 22:42:11
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.

8.) 18 Aug 2017 14:53:42
Dont think u understand a lot cork.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Mike mate, I hear what you’re saying but what do you expect after losing three of our top top players? I’ve only called out one geezer on here because he puts down everything associated with Leeds. Manager players and even the Chairman. This lad said last week that the chairman isn’t investing and would sell as he’s only in it for the money.

Ok he’s not throwing money at instant promotion but that is not a bad thing. He has a three year to five year plan and we have to accept that otherwise we could end up screwed again. Yes I’d love is to get in a 10 mill proven championship striker but they are hard to get. It’s not as if we are near the arse end of table and I’m prerty sure you and everyone else would of accepted top six at turn of year. We ain’t playing great but we are still up there. That’ll do me at this moment in time.
