I'm hearing that Viera may be set to turn down the move to sampadoria. Any thoughts?


1.) 30 Jul 2018 14:35:06
Personally hope he does turn it down. He still has loads of potential to fulfill, and I'd rather see him do it here than somewhere else like so many others have.

2.) 30 Jul 2018 14:51:51
according to SSN on his way to Genoa for medical as we speak.

3.) 30 Jul 2018 23:01:18
If Bielsa wanted him to stay he wouldn’t be talking to another club. It was clear from pre season that he wasn’t in his first pick and was asked to play differing roles, if he didn’t like that then fair he takes the opportunity to go and we get some money for him. A new manager isn’t going to please everyone or keep them happy. I hope he does well and if he has sent happy with the move he can always reject it and stay and fight for his place. Lots of people on here were always moaning about him!



23 Aug 2017 12:29:43
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.

6.) 23 Aug 2017 15:23:57
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! 😀

I would be happy if we sign Konate or Adomah, Caulker, then Besic on loan. People saying where is this £20m budget we were promised, people forget that includes wages and also the January window. So I'm still very positive.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 13:02:24
It can't include January window. We were told last season that there's no value in the transfer window.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 13:17:15
i agree. The other day showed we are not massively off the mark at present. a couple of additions should do it. however, if we continue to play like the other day, we will need the January window, as they will all be knackered.

3.) 08 Aug 2018 13:19:04
But we bought Forshaw? I think delboy is right, it's the season budget, and includes everything. Also think that the board are "playing the game", managing expectations, and managing any ongoing negotiations. They know surely that others need to be added, whether loan to buy, buy, or just loans. Loans cost money too.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 13:31:50
we can also continue to look at loans until the 31st Aug and that would include loans with an option to buy in January so tomorrow's deadline doesn't have to mean our activity is complete.

5.) 08 Aug 2018 16:05:48
We started smartly last season as well jeez lads Sunday was one game and in fairness I think Stoke were caught off guard.

6.) 08 Aug 2018 18:07:43
Jeez, live for the moment Wex, embrace it and give it a massive smacker on the lips. It may not last for long but go along for the ride and enjoy it.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 19:45:51
Caught off guard for 90 minutes? They got hammered.

8.) 08 Aug 2018 20:57:21
Was about the most one sided Leeds win I can remember. After we scored I never really felt we were in danger of losing. Normally it's heart in mouth for 95 minutes.



05 Aug 2018 18:28:01
What were you saying ausman?




04 Aug 2018 10:58:37
When Is this away kit being released, or are we just going to play in one kit this year?




01 Aug 2018 19:55:19
Any idea when our new away kit is being released, my guess is tomorrow? Hope it's yellow! 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻.




31 Jul 2018 23:28:22
Hello fello brothers and sisters, here is my predicted lineup for stoke this Sunday, hope you guys agree!

4-1-5-1 :
RWB: Ayling
CB: Pontus
CB: Cooper (c)
LWB: Douglas
CDM: Phillips
CM: Klich
CM: Baker
LW: Hernandez
RW: Roofe
ST: Bamford

On defence, Kalvo will fill in as a centre back and wing backs will sit flat. Klich will play the box to box role in favour of Forshaw cause of the injury. Baker will get forward more, and the wingers will stay forward with the wing backs as support. When it comes to creating chances, I feel Bamford and Roofe will be very fluid and switch positions constantly to make it difficult to mark. Then Roberts will come on.

Anyways, sorry for the long post and my positivety, as a Leeds fan I have to be more pessimistic😂😂.


1.) 01 Aug 2018 07:40:22
Good post and a reasonable team MOT.

2.) 01 Aug 2018 09:03:55
We all seem to struggle to fit Saiz in

What a difference a year makes.

3.) 01 Aug 2018 09:35:17
Delboy That would be my team. As for Saiz, he dropped out of my best eleven before Christmas last year.

4.) 01 Aug 2018 11:26:49
Delboy Bielsa eh? :)

5.) 01 Aug 2018 14:13:39
cant fault the line up with Harrison to replace Hernandez in the 2nd halff.

6.) 01 Aug 2018 20:01:09
Good lineup there Dellboy but got to agree with Alf, would try to squeeze Harrison in there somewhere.

So not Barry Douglas?

25 Jul 2018 20:10:54
Maybe he hasn't scored too many goals recently, but if we were also to get Vydra and Douglas. Them two, saiz baker and Hernandez giving the ball to him on a plate, surely he'll score a hatful? Or maybe wishful thinking.

I like kalvin cause he plays a position that goes well under the radar, like Batty, but not in the same level of course. He tracks back, collects the ball deep, plays simple balls, and wins the balls. He's not the kind of player that's going to go on a run and beat 3-4 people and score. Baring in mind the kids 22 and only had 3 full seasons, he is by no means the finished article. I apologise for being rash bermo, but I think you should judge what the kid does at by the end of the season.

As far as I'm aware Phillips didn't have a bad game, it was just tactical. Your Phillips knocking is laughable and beyond a joke.

I'm also from diwn south, Sussex to be precise. I get the stigma from northerners to southerners and so on. But when I hear Us Leeds fans slag off southerners, I don't class myself In the same bracket. As I am Leeds through and through, even though I'm not from there.
