Anyone heard anything by way of confirmation on Shack's possible thigh injury, or on why Edmondson did not feature against Girona at 4th e weekend?

Also some news on Ayling and Roberts?


2.) 31 Jul 2019 14:00:51
ayling + tyler out along obviously bwith kemar + the hatchet man suspended, lots of activity in BC squad this summer i think, vut hopefully we will rinse them, we need to hit ground running and build morale by winning games whilst hopefully playing attractive football.

Seen some suggestion of twitter rumours that our new away kit is grey with a pink trim. This seems a little unlikely given that this season's training kit is grey. If someone has seen such a kit, it would seem possible iis the a version of the training kit designed for out ladies team.

Surely if it is grey the trim would be yellow?
And don't forget it's not grey it's PLATINUM! 😂😂.

Flint reported to be on his way to Baadiff from Smoggies for 6m. Looks like Gibson could be taking a similar approach to FFP.

at least gibson spends cash, our clown is just that a clown . I suppose the fact that aidy is home grown rules him out from being 'found 'by victor the waster . Season just over 2 weeks away and we have League 1 Liam + a raw rookie at heart of defence and a striker who can't score as our main CF . Yet victor the waster feels we don't need additional improvements .
I feel another groundhog SEASON approaching . And no i not being negative just being realistic because this squad is not good enough . Radz out.


2.) 19 Jul 2019 18:40:02
Apparently linked with Chester from villa 7.5 M another injury prone short cb
Lets keep most of that money and take a chance on a free Mangala from man c only wages to pay and we've already got Harrison from them and he must have a little influence
As for flint yes last season maybe he would have been the solution.

“Not negative, just realistic”. An absolute classic line! Reality, negativity, positivity, they all really depend on who you are, and what your outlook on life is. I’m positive, and realistic. But my reality and perspective is different.


4.) 20 Jul 2019 00:19:18
well you tell us all here + now bright white is this season going to be the 1? Because never once did i genuinely think we were going to go up last season because as/ were leeds currently stand that squad is going nowhere . Document your knowledge here now that I am incorrect in my prediction . Bamford + Copper + Kiko will get us nowhere.


5.) 20 Jul 2019 10:45:04
Agree with Chris. I would also add Forshaw to the list of no hopers. The spine of this team is weak, inconsistent and prone to making big errors.


6.) 20 Jul 2019 12:08:41
Never at one point did I say you were wrong, just questioned the statement of your negativity being the reality. My knowledge of the game, through 20 years of coaching, is irrelevant. I just choose positivity. Simple really. My positivity, is my reality. Your negativity, is yours! Peace out!


7.) 20 Jul 2019 12:27:16
For me you can add Beradi, total liability, and Dallas, average at best.


8.) 20 Jul 2019 15:32:56
ah yes the classic swerve the question by avoiding the question brightwhite. Then I scroll down the page and read that you rate cooper, ha ha ha ha, all your 20 years of coaching and this is where your powers of coaching have gotten you . Cooper is hopeless, he has very poor reading of the game, very poor judgement, poor positioning, and his Achilles heel, his propensity for fouling in and around the box. I, ll leave it there with you because your coaching knowledge is far greater than. my understanding of the beautiful game .


9.) 21 Jul 2019 08:27:56
Chris Chris

Haven't read much from you so when you say that last season you never once thought we were going to be promoted. funny that you never came up with that statement in December when we were sitting top of the league.

Credit to Bermo, he consistently said he didn't think we would go up because of his concerns over Phillips. Never heard a peep from you



"Radz a clown"
"Orta is a waster"
"Cooper is league 1 standard"
You aren't a negative poster at all, just rude one.


Radz is a multi millionaire, if he is a clown, I would love to be one too

Orta is a waster, and yet we all love the fact that our U23 and U18s were so successful last year. And the first team gave us the best value for money for decades

Cooper is league 1, and yet he is captain of the team you support. What were you dreams when you were younger. I would love to be "league 1". And btw, neither his peers nor journalists who see him week in/ week out don't agree with you. go figure.

Bermo, RHC and George make objective and reasoned comments, not name calling.


10.) 21 Jul 2019 11:24:09
Chris, Chris, Chris.
I’m not even going to bite. So calm down pal.


11.) 21 Jul 2019 19:18:20
axe on tour! My assertions of the people mentioned are ENTIRELY based on the performance ON field for LUFC, i do not know these people personally so i do not comment from that perspective . Yes Andrea is a very wealthy man, but my comment about him being a clown is based on his. refusal to strengthen last year at such a pivotal time in our recent. His refusal again this year whilst trousering £37million ink costs, which was brushed under carpet double speed . The Danny James incident still rankles .
Victor the waster comment is based on his previous escapades in Boro + now here, how many of his finds would you brand as class + how many would you brand dross? The latter weighs a lot heavier i need not tell you .
Coopers lot is that regardless of him probably being a popular dude at the club, popularity is not going to get us up or improve his football ability which we all have seen time + time again is very average, yet we are again told he is the right man for the coming season . let's watch how he performs this season . I intend no rudeness whatsoever to any 1 on here, yes my passion for LUFC is direct and maybe viewed abrasive, but my intentions are always honourable not vindictive .
Lastly September 1 last after our Boro home game i turned to my pals and said the words no way with that squad, yes i was ridiculed all season saying that i was wrong by my pals, but to a man they all admitted i got. it. right when we crumbled . Same thing is going to happen WITHOUT quality additions to squad.
Love + Peace to all.


12.) 22 Jul 2019 07:06:42
Got to agree with a lot of what Chris Chris is saying. Plenty of players leaving but very few incomings so far. Where is the money going? Nothing from Jansson has been reinvested, nothing from Saiz, nothing from all the younger players who have left. We should have 8-10 mill unaccounted for so where is our strengthening to replace the two quality players mentioned above?


13.) 22 Jul 2019 23:07:14
Chris Chris, if you really turned to your mates and send no way with this squad, you were well off the pace because clearly there was a way and we almost did it. To pretend you knew in September that we would only be good enough to come third and miss out of the play offs!

Bogusz was bought on January at a good price and will be a good addition for this year, White and Struick will also make an impact this year.

The easy prediction every year is to say that we won’t go up, the odds are for it. The sensible view is to say, let’s Wait and see. If you want to go every week having given up and in the hope that you will be proved right, fair enough.!


14.) 23 Jul 2019 07:59:43
Spanish White, i never once claimed to have said what position Leeds would finish in table or miss out in play offs . If you read my post correctly then you will see what i said that the squad would not. go up last season due to the number of average players in it . Remember the small issue of. our relegation form the previous season under Higgy?
Secondly you say the bookies odds are against Leeds, well go look at the odds for this season, you might get a little surprise.
Thirdly please don't call me a liar because i am not a liar, i actually did say that we wouldn't go up, and the same is going to be true this season, white is totally untested at this level, yet because he's cheap enough he's good enough by Andreas reckoning . At this stage 15 years on i think WE ALL can agree that LUFC deserve better than skin flint owners.

I see young Haaland has just scored nine goals (yes 9!) in a game against Honduras in the U20 World Cup. Unfortunately, I think we've. we'll and truly mIssed the boat on him for now.

Think yer right clueless. Should’ve snapped him up last closed season. But, it was only Honduras.

Against anyone 9 is impressive. I think Alfie might be his agent so surely he could help to swing it?

I see FIFA has banned Mino Raiola for three months. Pity, might delay our signing of Pogba - but, on a more serious note, I guess it might delay our off-loading of Ouasim Bouy.

Oh dear! Almost total possession for more than 15 minutes after the equaliser, and all we had to show for it was a header wide from Coops, and of course two good shouts for a penalty turned - not much has changed since last year yet.

In a previous post I suggested that Bielsa may have had targets additional to the four we've been aware of, contingent on moving on players he felt he may not be able to rely on to go again this season. I was going to suggest that Roofe might be one of those players, but stopped short as I didn't want to fall foul of Aus' word count tick.

My thinking behind this was that Bielsa may have realised that to succeed this season he would need to rotate the squad so as to maintain player's freshness and to keep opponents guessing. I recalled that in previous seasons Roofe was not a happy camper when he was not playing, and of course more recently he has expressed a strong preference for playing centrally. Bielsa clearly prefers players who put the needs of the team first.

Having now watched the highlights of Bielsa's pre-Brizzle press conference, I'm more confident in that theory. I note he specifically referred to the need for genuine competition for places within the squad - and I'm fairly sure Bielsa would have been unconvinced that Roofe would have been happy sitting on the bench when fully fit.

Clueless

1.) 04 Aug 2019 09:25:20
Clueless Bielsa says all this then sticks to the same players, it's the playing players out of position rather than bringing in a squad player or U23 who specialises in that position, This is where he falls down.


2.) 04 Aug 2019 09:23:39
In Roofe's defence. Early in his Leeds career he was warming the bench a lot and he never seemed to complain, and his performances when he came on were enthusiastic.

However, now he is the established No9, it may have been a different story regarding the bench warming situation.

For me, Roofe doesn't have an exceptional quality. He is not tall. He is not a bully. He is not lighting quick. He is not a poacher. He doesn't possess the killer vision. Roofe, to me, is a good footballer but not X-factor. He doesn't have any of the qualities to lead the line as a lone striker.

I wish him all the best. I think that in a team where he isn't expected to lead the line on his own he will flourish. But Leeds need something more than he can give at this time.


3.) 04 Aug 2019 09:24:07
To add to that, we know BPF has been helped out of the door, having publicly stated he didn't want to play second fiddle and that Pontus wasn't happy when benched - so there may be a pattern there.

If that were the case, the impulse to blame Radz for the loss of these players would be a wrong one.

As has been pointed out by others, the club has reportedly been offered the largest amounts of money for KP, who we know Bielsa actually wants to keep, and to date no offer has been accepted. For all of Berm's protestations to the contrary, KP is widely objectively seen as our most consistently high performing player last season - so it is not unimaginable that genuine and sizeable offers have been made for him, rather than it being merely paper/ agent talk or a ploy by Villa to reduce the asking price on an actual target. The latest rumour seems to be that Burnley offered Vydra and money for KP, but that this was also turned down. If true, I feel that would have been the right call, as despite his previous success at Champ level, why would we want to take a player who made it clear he did not want to join us last year, in return for player who wants to stay here and give his all for a club he has always supported.

It seemed a little telling that Bielsa made the point that the club's activity in the window should only be judged when it has closed. Though, of course whoever has made the call on all these decisions, it is only when this season has closed that we will be able to judge fully whether they were the right ones.

Berm, I find it hard to stomach your comment earlier that you kind of hope we get smashed tomorrow. No supporter should ever want his/ her team to get beaten, for whatever reason.

I'm hoping that we give Brizzle a hiding, with Bambam scoring the perfect hatrick - left, right, head in whatever order, to set pulses racing end set him up for a great season.

1.) 04 Aug 2019 02:49:33
True, only a millwall fan would wish us to lose.


2.) 04 Aug 2019 03:15:02
Some good thinking cluey and I would add that a goal difference of plus two or more puts us top after round one. Did Norwich win the league last season by buying big money players? Not sheff. We have emerging quality in our ranks plus a fresh hunger to do the job this time and all the squad should be fighting for places. Bonus if anyone comes in before the deadline but even if we lose today it's not the end of the world. Look what Fulham have and they lost like a few others. Long season and let's judge radz orta and mb and the squad only if we start to fail. I just love our attacking football regardless. We ain't going to be boring. MOT.


3.) 04 Aug 2019 08:08:26
Too right Graybanger, who had heard of the likes of Teeny Pukki and Emiliano Buendia before they propelled the Canaries to the top of the Champ, and Blunts did it largely on the back of the efforts of journeymen Billy Sharp and David McGoldrick, with a cameo appearance from Gary Madine!

Only Villa did it by splashing the cash, the team beloved by such establishment figures as Prince William (President of the FA) , Gareth Southgate, David Cameron, Jacqui Smith (former Home Secretary) and Mervyn King (former Governor of the Bank of England) - not that I'm suggesting that that helped them in any way to get away with breaking the FFP rules.

I can understand your disappointment in Bermos phrasing but hopefully you can understand his frustration is behind the words and he is a always going to be a Leeds supporter.

I think he just wants a wake up call for the powers that be. He sees them going down the wrong path to achieve ALL our goal of promotion.

Me and Bermo are chalk and cheese but I am willing to overlook his phrasing and see the feeling he had for our club


Bermo
You have posted some positive stuff recently so I know your not Nigel Negative at all. Break out your platinum mankini with pink trim and get right in the hot tub.


5.) 04 Aug 2019 10:23:32
Mankini on axe and pubes trimmed

Yeah I do think some times a loss can come at the greater good

Few years back Norwich got smashed wale up call changed the manager then went from league one to prem sometimes a wake up call can be great

A few more defeats at the start of last season might of inspired a bit more activity in jan windows helping us get over the line. that said it is all hindsight

I am on isle of weight bribed a governor of a local pub to not play charity shield but put the proper football in and I shall be cheering on the lads mot.

Batty, not sure which neck of the woods you hail from, but I may be a bit of a geek. For my day job I need to find info fast and used to take some pride in finding stuff before my colleagues, or when they'd given up. So when someone puts a little info out there, I can tend to get a bit of a geek tick, to indulge my curiosity. Doesn't necessarily mean I'll remember it down the line, like a true geek would.

To fill out a bit on Batty's point, Dallas joined Crusaders as a 19 year old, and playing as a striker scored 16 goals in his first season. He only scored 8 the following year but it would seem that the team had signed a more experienced striker, 28 year-old Timmy Adamson from Dungannon Swifts, presumably to strengthen the squad for it's Europa League campaign. Dallas therefore played less league matches and seems to have taken on a secondary striker/ winger role, and also took on free kicks and corners, so perhaps unsurprisingly his goal output dropped, to just 8. The following season he joined Brentford as primarily a winger, and the rest, as they say, is history.

So I'd certainly back George's crusade to give Dallas a chance up front, he would likely score quite a few for us. He doesn't deserve the flack he receives from some sections of our 'support' - always puts a shift in wherever he's played, and as shown with his brace in the fateful last match against the Fat One's previous lot, he can make a significant contribution even when others are losing their heads. As we are unlikely to get Milner back, let's celebrate, not lambast, our current Mr Versatile and help encourage him to achieve previously unseen heights of performance for us.

As I read it (and I may be wrong) KP does not actually want to go, he just doesn't want to commit himself to a new contract on the basis which is currently offered. His hope presumably is that we get promoted this season and that he then stays with us for the long term on a new contract. His agent will have advised him that if we do indeed get promotion, the club would likely offer improved contracts to all players they wished to keep, but that he would have stronger hand in negotiations if he only had the one remaining year on his existing contract - so less jam for today but with expectation of more tomorrow. If KP had wanted to go, he would said so earlier.

Obviously if we do not go up there will be a stronger test on KP's desire to stay here.

Admittedly it seems unlikely, but could we not go in for him on the same basis as Costa - loan this year but with a commitment to buy next season. That would meet our apparent need to keep costs down this year, while also giving the certainty Klopp is seeking for Liverpool and the lad himself.

Too right RHC, for all that he had a decent game yesterday, Forshaw's place should be on the bench.

Cannot understand why Bielsa has played all three of them. With more attacking options than last year, why on earth has he resorted to playing Klich at ten with KP and Forshaw behind?
