We've been linked to a Real Madrid striker called Raúl de Tomás, he's technically good, good dead ball player, and a brilliant touch, would suit our front 4 very well, and would fit into our fluidity since woods left, and if things aren't going well we have Grot possibly, a big fella to out jump defenders. Any thoughts?


1.) 23 Aug 2017 12:52:47
Similar strike rate to Saiz in the same Lg last year which bodes well, also younger. Just hope it would be a transfer or loan to buy with an agreed fee, would hate to have him score a load then loose him at the end of the campaign.

2.) 23 Aug 2017 13:16:52
I don't think we had much fluidity with Wood in this setup, to be honest. Lone striker centre-forwards should get way more than three assists in a season if they're doing it right.

3.) 23 Aug 2017 14:38:09
Roofe will become number 9 for now and grot and someone else will come in to compete with ekuban, 4 strikers of similar quality, all with different attributes

4.) 23 Aug 2017 14:48:42
And all very bl00dy exciting!

5.) 23 Aug 2017 15:05:43
Hope not Samo, Roofe did well against a Lg2 defense, we knew he could do that when we bought him. 3 goals in 54 matches against Championship defenses says he isn't a striker at this level to me, our defenders outscore him. Looks more comfortable as a winger/attacking mid where he can find gaps and space to go into. Grot to compete with Ekuban, hopefully another striker coming in as a starter.

Good post Gummie

Definitely take Jota. 100%. ⚽️⚽️⚽️😃

9.) 24 Aug 2017 00:52:02
Where you play him? Similar to Saiz.

10.) 24 Aug 2017 02:13:25
If we are wanting strength in depth to compete throughout this season. Then as you said. Similar too Sammy. So if he were to tire in games or get injured. We have a ready made replacement. And it will add compitition for Sammy too. Don't want him thinking he's an automatic starter with a few good performances. Keeps everyone on their toes. He's a bit more height that Sammy too so could be used more in front off him if needs be. ⚽️⚽️👍😃



21 Aug 2017 15:15:58
Apparently we've placed a £6m bid in for Rudy Gestede, don't know what to think of this, any thoughts?


1.) 21 Aug 2017 15:43:08
Personally I don't believe it, having seen how much better our 3 attacking midfielders have looked against port vale and Sunderland ( without wood) i. e. Target man, I'd like to see us go for a more mobile options/options. We look far more fluid with saiz alioski pablo Ekuban as they all swap n change position it keeps defences guessing . With a target man we look too rigid and they sit deeper to enable a higher ball forward!

2.) 21 Aug 2017 16:46:26
Chuba akpom, nahki wells, Cameron jerome all spring to mind

3.) 21 Aug 2017 17:25:59
What about putting a cheeky bid in for Darren Bent think he would do OK in this Leeds team don't think they would want to let him go but u got to be init to win it. ?

4.) 21 Aug 2017 17:29:36
Actually looks true as in a number of papers and sky . I suppose we have Alli etc crossing in balls so would be good to get someone on the end of them . As for Grot I think this is another one for future, calm down dear.

5.) 21 Aug 2017 20:05:06
Wells is a no go he's had operation on an injury and is out for atleast 6 weeks! I'd love Danny inngs or Shane long, and McCormack on loan



16 Jul 2017 13:57:14
I have a feeling that we won't be signing a left back, I think beradi will play there considering we have cover there, any thoughts ?


1.) 16 Jul 2017 15:08:45
Who's the cover Delboy? Coyle is out on loan and Taylor gone. Unless one of the newbies can cover, but considering Beradi is a right back I think I'd like to see a true left back in the squad.

2.) 16 Jul 2017 15:37:48
Ayling can play there, cooper, and Alioski plays there for Macedonia. Personally I hope we sign a left back, but beradi played awfully well there.

3.) 16 Jul 2017 15:39:50
Denton is a left back

4.) 16 Jul 2017 16:33:07
Betahdi can play anywhere wouldn't cloning be cheaper?

5.) 16 Jul 2017 16:46:56
Why not clone Michael Brown? We all dream of a team of Michael Browns don't we?

6.) 16 Jul 2017 19:41:16
Ain't we linked with Borthwick-Jackson from Man U as the new left back

7.) 16 Jul 2017 19:53:33
If we get Jackson that is

8.) 17 Jul 2017 10:23:42
Anita Denton Ayling Could all play as either full back I'd like the lad at Celtic at LB, but that's unlikely Well, till next season ;-) Need two (or three ) centre backs as a priority

9.) 17 Jul 2017 13:31:30
TC has supposedly said he sees Anita as a full back so I'm guessing we just found out who our new LB is, unless he is thinking of playing Ayling or Berardi out of position.

10.) 18 Jul 2017 13:28:46
I'm still unconvinced on the signing of Anita as a right-back. We just didn't need one. Ayling at centre would be even less convincing. Berardi would do well wherever he plays but, in my opinion, should be playing on the right. What we're left with is needing two centre-halves and a left-back. Midfield I think we did well for signings. Defence, we signed a player for the only position we've got covered.



04 Jul 2017 17:44:02
Supposedly, the new kit is said to be announced tomorrow, so what are our guesses in what said kit will look like. Or if there's anyone in the know what does it look like. Food for thought!


1.) 04 Jul 2017 18:03:25
Red shirt, white shorts, black socks. Only kidding that's the new away kit! 😉
Got a feeling the home kit will be predominantly white with a bit of blue and yellow on it somewhere, in fact I'd put money on it! 😀
Seriously though, I think they've done very well to keep it a secret this long if it is to be unveiled tomorrow.

2.) 04 Jul 2017 18:11:31
Said on newsnow that it's announced tomorrow.

3.) 04 Jul 2017 18:37:54
Something to look forward to, Delboy
We just need a few more decent players in now to wear it!

4.) 04 Jul 2017 19:22:21
Yeah, let's hope, don't know what's wrong with this new gaffer, he hasn't even given me a call yet

5.) 07 Jul 2017 07:13:25
Wow, I'm glad I didn't put money on it! 😀



07 Dec 2016 20:25:44
Sorry if I'm being a bit dim here, but this new Cellino story that's came out, we've been fined £250,000 that's pennies for Cellino, so why are people worried, will it affect the take over, or get us deducted points, I don't understand.


1.) 08 Dec 2016 10:57:17
It would be nothing to worry about for any other team Delboy. There will be a clause in the FA's rule book which states the punishment for such misdemeanours but this is Leeds United we're taking about and the FA have their very own rule book for us, with some of the punishments last seen in mediaeval days when they burnt witches etc. so who knows! MM.

2.) 08 Dec 2016 14:06:33
Top and bottom of it mick is they will do whatever they can to keep us in the championship as we make them money. In there eyes it's a better league with us in it.

3.) 08 Dec 2016 15:30:14
Been watching Sky and FA released a statement saying they have no knowledge of where this story has come from so it's either just lazy journalism again or someone in know has tipped off what may happen .

I have a theory lads. Now hang on before you guys judge me. Maybe we have signed a big marque signing, like a Marriott and madison, or a Hernandez and a Vydra, and we are waiting for the kit launch next week to announce them in our brand spanking new home and away kit. May not be these players, may be other big names, who's to say, just a theory. Comment if you guys agree.


1.) 18 Jul 2018 18:34:07
I've heard we've loaned a kit off Swansea!

2.) 18 Jul 2018 21:25:25
Certainly an interesting theory Delboy! Let hope it comes to fruition! (Let's also hope the new kit and badge aren't minging, too) !



19 Jun 2018 21:06:50
I think since Bielsa prefers Vydra to Hernandez, I feel he may have a trick up his sleeve to play him in a false 9 role, freeing up saiz to go in the enganche, which would suit him down to the ground. Any thoughts?


1.) 19 Jun 2018 22:42:53
Play a bit of footie manager? I know what you mean. The free roaming type of play this provides is key to how "bub" will probably play. i'm more excited about our first game than I am about the world cup. M. O. T.

2.) 19 Jun 2018 23:01:14
My thoughts are - I don't know what enganche means. And I can't even work out what you might have meant

3.) 20 Jun 2018 09:58:04
Just googled it! Got to be Saiz for that role. Need quick and mobile players in front of him for that though. No more lumps of wood like Lasogga!



29 Jan 2018 20:33:52
Alright lads, news coming from the club, they want us Leeds fans to email the club their designs of a club badge and they'll be a vote and a decision made by club, and Leeds united panels or something, then they'll release a shortlist for members and season ticket holders to make a decision on what will be our badge next season and we'll find out end of next month. So lads, if you want your dream badge, get your crayons out.




20 Nov 2017 11:02:20
The legend that is yeboah, how dare someone say he's dead, why would someone make up fake news about that?




27 Sep 2017 17:45:49
Alright lads, read a post lower down concerning Pennington, said he'll be class then return to Everton, I agree he most likely will, however, at cultural leonnesa we have Bouy, a centre back who is almost a playmaker and a dead ball specialist, I reckon once penns is gone, he'll slip into his place, any thoughts on bouy? love to hear the replies.


1.) 27 Sep 2017 18:20:08
Dell bouy life bouy birthdaybouy I reckon you might be right Rodney could be your GCE

2.) 28 Sep 2017 02:28:35
Bouy is naturally a DM/CM that can play CB Delboy, would rather bring in someone who is a natural replacement.

Bielsa will be playing more or less a different 11 every pre season game, That's Instead of changing the 11 every half. To me I think this is better as the players will all get a better run out.

Mezzer and aus, u guys bloody do negotiations. If stuff isn't sorted properly like Bielsa is probably doing, u end up paying stupid wages, like we did back in the Risdale era.
