Working this evening so only going by what I’ve read so far, but George says it best! We are top of the league and yes I know it’s barely started but we have a coach this year a real coach and like Berm says this is a result to take more from than all the others, a dirty Tuesday away at Swansea and we get a point fantastic! Cue heckbum spouting on about if he was Manager he would have signed him. but your not anymore heck as we have a world class coach who I am sure is going to take us there or there about come the end of the season.

Only saw the second half but happy with a point.
From reading comments here I'm even happier with MB.
Taking off a player early who's having a nightmare isn't common. It shows the players his standards!
I hope he finds a way to get his standards through to Saiz. Stop the complaining and petulence and play the game. It won't always go your way, accept it and play. We can't afford him picking up a suspension as he's our main creator.

The lad gets frustrated with being constantly fouled but agree he needs to get that out of his game.

3.) 22 Aug 2018 09:39:54
Class post, class.

Like the new kit, struggle to spot the differences other than we ran outta gold. Yellow away kit will make me forget all about the lack of signings for an hour or two.

It is still to be seen just how significant the Bielsa effect is though. Heck had the same squad albeit we now have better keepers and stronger midfield options.

If Guardiola was our Manager now we would still bemoan the lack of signings but would expect an improved team due to the level of coaching, so it’s reasonable we may bet a bounce from Bielsa in charge?

So difficult to find the positives when everyone is getting rid of straws, but Kit and Bielsa is what I have for now.

Linked with ex Argentina National Manager known as a maverick and famously set a team out in a 3 3 3 1 formation! He’s going to struggle finding someone to play the 1


1.) 31 May 2018 22:28:05
Bielsa? Absolute top-drawer coach



29 Apr 2018 00:36:52
I would have to say that I normally fit in the glass half rose tinted camp! However, I’m no Football Manager but clearly the players aren’t playing for PH. more importantly they seem to be oblivious to the consequences of not performing? I actually think we can do a lot better than McCarthy however, can you see our team putting in such a insipid display under Mad Mick! No thought not, still don’t think Radz will dispense with PH which I’m honest is a genuine worry !


{Ed033's Note - Is that insipid or inspired?

1.) 29 Apr 2018 15:44:43
MM won't even post here anymore Class so he's not going to want to be our manager.



24 Feb 2018 19:34:26
Well done to PH not the easiest job in the championship but he’s coming across as a genuine guy and I believe he will improve us


1.) 24 Feb 2018 20:18:53
Just think what he could do if he liked us!

2.) 24 Feb 2018 22:05:09
Mezzer you’re living in the distant past if you think managers ‘like’ their teams lots of players kiss the badge so they must love their team !

3.) 25 Feb 2018 07:53:55
Oh class sorry mate, was a poor attempt at humour!

4.) 25 Feb 2018 19:53:43
Mezzer if he liked us he'd have a better record than 1 in 4, mmmmm didn't Barnsley break there duck at weekend too? You going to say that was him too

5.) 25 Feb 2018 20:22:53
Yes martyn, all down to the manager, Barnsley win too. Someone been smoking the grass me thinks. Read the posts again, not sure how you interpret it.

6.) 26 Feb 2018 09:17:43
I'll putter oven on low now mezzer and I'll give you a shout when it's ready

Fantastic performance and really pleased for Roberts. Delighted for Cooper, last season when he kept getting sent of I agreed with a post that he was possibly the worst CH to wear the white shirt. Whilst he will never turn into Paul Madely what character and leadership to come back. Finally, I had honestly never heard of Bielsa before and was both excited and intrigued when Ed001 was saying how fortunate we are. My Dad always spoke of seeing John Charles play like watching an immortal? Well I will be boring my grandsons with tales of how the ‘great Bielsa’ came to manage us!




08 Sep 2018 08:55:05
How good are the U23’s to watch at present, coaching definitely changed both culture and style of play. Loved Clarke’s goal for the technical ability but actually enjoyed Nicells more in that it started from our keeper and following a number of crisp purposeful passes Nicell struck a great finish. Whilst I appreciate anyone stepping up to the championship will have to cope with the sheer physicality they will face. These players are technically gifted, have a sound understanding of the Bielsa/ Corberan mindset and our CLUB looks far better than I can remember.


1.) 08 Sep 2018 09:31:07
Agree Class and there were some newer names in that team that had great games, Gotts and Casey, locals I think. Leif Davies from Morecambe looked good again and Diaz had a good game as captain and centre back, useful. The style of the club is running through the club.

Yesterday they were playing a flexible defensive system of back 5 that became a back 3 with all the 5 moving about the field a lot and you could see the players covering if 1 went forward. Very impressive.

2.) 08 Sep 2018 10:20:09
gotts is local lad and very promising I believe from what I have read and heard and expecting him in 1st team soon.

we have always had a good academy and always brought through great players even in league one. but looks like the new set up is on another level!

3.) 08 Sep 2018 10:20:36
Should also add that the under 23s are top of the league, unbeaten, 4 wins out of 5!

4.) 08 Sep 2018 10:44:01
News of shipping out 4 U23s then days later U23s win 4-0. Times are good. Just a question of how many will burst thro to first team this year.

5.) 08 Sep 2018 11:05:54
5-0, Sorry.

6.) 08 Sep 2018 11:17:20
Thanks Spanish only started really taking close interest in the under 23s due to feedback from you, bright and Bige. Very excited to see how many make the grade though.

7.) 08 Sep 2018 11:20:54
Think the coaches have done an excellent job. Nicell has improved tremendously and everyone on the team knows their job. Even the guys who came in from the first team gave 100%, and believe me that's not always happened in the past. Dalby, Edmondson, Clarke, Stevens, great front line and if we can keep them all will save millions in the future. Gott and Davis excellent. Diaz improving every game. Two talented keepers in Miziak and Huffer. Add some of the loanees to the mix and our squad looks stronger than most people think. let's not forget players like Taylor who we all praising last season who can't get a game. Yes all young but sure if used sparingly can help the first team. Onwards and upwards.

8.) 08 Sep 2018 11:34:20
Must add i think the biggest credit should go to Bielsa who has transformed the footballing side of the club. His philosophy and style of play is evident right through the club even the U16s are playing Bielsaball. Shows what a top coach can bring to the club and what we have been lacking.

9.) 08 Sep 2018 12:15:18
Great positive posts! Really agree about the strength in depth. Obviously the step up for these boys is a real challenge but often, you don’t know until you give them a chance. That’s why the solution all the time isn’t buying new players in at first team level. Buy more in at junior level mix them with home grown and then select the best. I echo the comments about the first teamers as well, my respect for Harrison, Baker and Zbamford really grow yesterday, Friday afternoon at Elland Road, few hundred people, a bit nippy, but worked so hard and set a great example and great opportunity for the lads!

10.) 08 Sep 2018 12:43:29
Other bonus about going to the the under 23s, is that there were a few attractive middle aged women around then I realized they were the players Mums!

11.) 08 Sep 2018 12:45:27
All above posts are great to read.
Think radz and the geezer we hate obviously had a vision that we couldn’t see.
Well done them. Well done the players. Well done Spanish. Very interesting.
Why can’t leeds fans start wearing blue buckets on their heads.

Aussie Where in solar system is your home planet? Do you like 🌍?

13.) 08 Sep 2018 14:06:42
It's a really good point in there Aus.
What are the views on Orta these days?

14.) 08 Sep 2018 17:04:35
Orta, like lots of other people, makes mistakes and tries to learn from them. Really isn’t in his own interests to bring in crap time and time again. I think a lot of the time we like everything to be black and white, he’s rubbish and he’s fantastic, whereas often it’s just in between somewhere!

15.) 08 Sep 2018 17:08:26
Orta the enigma. Obviously a lot of talent in academy and first team. Think its thanks to our present coaching system for the improvement. Think we could have lost a few under the radar if Bielsa had not arrived. He identified the ones he thought could do a job. Think some of us were doubting Orta when young ones were coming in by the bus load. Radz himself has said we have too many which begs the question why did we bring in so many, was it a hit or miss thing, playing percentages, who knows. Would like to think he knew what he was doing.



31 Aug 2018 19:51:40
Sat in the Colonial Martyn, down in Fanabe, good option as the very attractive bar staff (some for Berm and Speedy too) closely monitoring your pints and refill is there automatically.

Going for a hard fought 2-1 tonight, hoping our superior fitness and home support will make the difference. MOT.




30 Aug 2018 12:33:11
Saw Izzy Brown turn out for Brighton whilst on loan there was actually struggling for form at the time so they used him more as an impact sub, has good pace, strong and skilful and think he would be a great asset to the team.


1.) 30 Aug 2018 13:36:42
Just read that he is unlikely to be fit until October, , but we are signing him anyhow, because we are unlikely to need to deploy him before then. Odd. Still no mention of strengthening at th e back. Odd.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 13:39:22
The dog botherers are really pi55ed that he's coming to us, and we might actually pass each other at the end of the season!
Onwards and upwards mot.

3.) 30 Aug 2018 14:03:49
From huddersfield my self and the amount of stick I got last season was stupid, not so much this time round though!
Still, it would just be sublime if they came down as we went up, and in style too and the more we rub their faces in it the better.

4.) 30 Aug 2018 17:49:00
I hope the dogbotherers stay up so we can help send them down next season :)

5.) 30 Aug 2018 22:30:24
I’m with you AL. Don’t mind them staying up if we go up and give them a pasting twice a year.

6.) 30 Aug 2018 23:19:41
That's how we like em, broken when we sign them is our new policy.



26 Aug 2018 22:54:48
Everyone of this squad contributing at different times different games with Bub and Pablo on it every game so far. the real test will be when we lose one, could actually happen, well eventually and that’s where we all have to also demonstrate why we are the best supported Team in the land. Just saying, just in case.

So good to read a sensible post, totally agree O’Leary just posted something similar saying we are in a good a position as we’ve been for many a year.

Total agreement Marko, think if we bought Madine and Hugil we will definitely make the playoffs. That doesn’t magically fix Keeper concerns, creative midfielder concerns BUT spending more time in their penalty box, with better goals converted ratio will cover our deficiencies.

He's a skill full player, and has been prolific at times, but is currently not playing first team football for a reason Mezzer? This is for a second half push for glory, so players on form with a proven record in giving everything every game is critical at this time. Madine or Hugil far better options at this time for me.

Great shout Batts, Madine or Hugil would improve us massively

Hi Martyn, only here until 06th of September but normally try and come out about five or six times a year as we have a little place out here. Love to catch up for a pint one time? Brilliant news that you able to consider traveling though Martyn which hopefully means recovery is on track, beats being top of the league that buddy!
