Let's not forget Charlie Adam is not the only prem player out of contract in the summer. Although he would be a great addition to Leeds we should also look at other players like Seb Larsson from Sunderland George Boyd from Burnley, Andrew Surman from Bournemouth, Joe Ledley and Mathieu Flamini from Crystal Palace, leadbitter from Middlesbourgh, Darren Fletcher from West Brom.


1.) 19 May 2017 14:38:45
Fletcher would do a job at Leeds. Flamini a bit past it but surman and ledley both good shouts. Live in hull, George Boyd used to play for hull and they said he was the most average player they'd had in that season they went up. But other 3 good alternatives

2.) 19 May 2017 18:02:17
I reckon Flamini would still do a great job in the Championship. MM

I think £20mil is a no brainer as you've all said. I'd like to see us get rid of Dallas as well who I think has been poor the last 12 months and is probably on a large weekly salary and get Pedraza who looked quick and skillful since he joined. I'd put a bid in for Connor Wickham similar type of player to Wood who would link up well with Roofe and he doesn't get game time at Palace as a striker.



06 Jan 2017 12:40:58
Luke Murphy has joined Burton on loan, good luck to him


1.) 06 Jan 2017 14:06:58
Yea good luck luke, a very honest loyal lad and a all round top guy.

2.) 06 Jan 2017 17:21:10
Well said our Martyn. MM

3.) 07 Jan 2017 13:41:59
Respect for Murphy as he took a pay decrease to stay whilst in the team. Not a bad player on his day. Good luck to him. MoT



21 Dec 2016 17:33:29
Just read that Adrian (West Ham keeper) is being linked with a move to Leeds. He has had a few good years with the hammers and is only 29 so still in his prime. Also his contract runs out in the summer. Also, Nugent or Rhodes are both a must buy. I'm not saying we need both but Fletcher is young and relatively unproven and definitely not worth 2mil.


1.) 21 Dec 2016 22:49:47
Havent seen much of West Ham over the last few seasons, my understanding is that Adrian is pretty similar to Green and Silvestri in that he does some stuff really well but is prone to silly mistakes, not sure he is a step up if that's the case.

2.) 29 Dec 2016 14:31:01
we won't attract players like Adrian. he won't drop down to championship IMO, still a prem player.



28 Oct 2016 10:51:39
Now Leicester are keen on signing Taylor for around 4M. I say take the money and use it to bring in Jansson or Bartley.


1.) 28 Oct 2016 12:59:33
Agree, but both would cost more than £4m.

2.) 28 Oct 2016 13:47:24
Bidding war, plus it can be used for Pontus and Hernandez. Not sure about Bartley yet, he only looks good next to Jansson. Surely cup run will bring in funds too?

3.) 28 Oct 2016 17:26:36
Bartley is out of contract in the summer I believe so that's one down.

4.) 28 Oct 2016 21:56:28
Bartley signed a years extension before joining us on loan scoops so he would command a fee.

5.) 31 Oct 2016 11:08:38
SG90. how are you not sure about Bartley? He is a goal scoring CB and to be honest I think he is the reason Pontus is able to express himself more because he is so disciplined. He also has less injury worries. Although a little off putting he does have a remarkably well trimmed beard also.



09 Aug 2016 11:18:05
Hernandez has been cleared to play, finally some good news

In other news, Leeds rejected a 7m offer from West Ham for Charlie Taylor.


1.) 09 Aug 2016 13:17:57
Club mad to refuse bid 7m wtf get a real CB LB And Striker for that money!

2.) 10 Aug 2016 09:36:49
Sgunit can't even buy a quality striker for 7m nowadays.

3.) 10 Aug 2016 10:42:59
Yes you can Brit asombalonga is 7 mill he is the kind of striker we need, I like Chris wood but he's not going to score a lot of goals.

4.) 10 Aug 2016 12:12:55
Agree swan lad he'd be a great signing I like wood but if Sunday is anything to go by e simply won't give him enough service

I also owe you an apology after I seen grimes play on Sunday he really is awful lol how mowett or Phillips didn't get in team in front of him is beyond me.

5.) 10 Aug 2016 14:26:40
We need someone who can play along side Chris wood who can make runs, Britt would have been amazing to have but Leeds paying 7 mill is never going to happen lol Grimes doesn't do a thing for Leeds imo, he's no good at anything imo. I'd have put mowatt ahead of him because he's far better imo. Phillips will be great but needs abit more time but already like his style. The qpr game was a joke we never looked like scoring n our defending was embarrassing. Can't play like that again. Most teams in division 1 would have won the way we played. I'm not slagging Leeds of because I love them but how many times have Leeds played shockingly poor games.

6.) 10 Aug 2016 14:32:17
Oh and don't apologise, we all have different views mate. But yh Grimes doesn't offer anything imo. No good at passing no good at defending.

7.) 10 Aug 2016 15:55:44
Ok so where do we get the CB and LB from with no money? Plus Britt assombalonga is not a lone striker, so doesn't fit into our system really.

8.) 10 Aug 2016 15:59:29
I also doubt forest would sell Britt for 7mil esp as they paid 5 raising up to 8 mil with add ons they would want their money back.

9.) 10 Aug 2016 16:02:46
Seems as though Assombalonga had an ACL rupture. Doubt we'd be stupid enough to sign him with that history especially after turning down Ekstrand for the same reason.

10.) 10 Aug 2016 16:15:55
Well if leeds want goals they will need to spend big is all i'm saying. Chris wood will get you no more than 15 to 20 goals per season. I'm not slagging him of or anything because for me he's probably one of the best players at Leeds but we still need a out n out goal scorer. Marcus antonsson won't get more than 10 imo can't see Leeds doing any better this season than last season. Cook won't be missed imo but he will if all we can sign is rubbish like Grimes on loan. Liam Moore is the kind of defender Leeds should be signing but we will just end up with some unknown from Italy.

11.) 10 Aug 2016 19:13:24
Look boys, we need to stay positive, we're only a game in. I for one, actually trust Monk! Also, I promise you, Antonsson is one of the best, natural goalscorers in this division. He's not going to rattle them in from 30 yards, but he's going to get first full once we get some rythm. You don't have to believe me, but I watched him a fair amount in Sweden and the league (while not technically superb) is just as difficult in terms of chances as the championship. Games in this league tend to go back and forth with waves of pressure and he will feed off that. He is a brilliant finisher. I will bet any one of you that he scores 15 this season if he plays as many games.

Let's give it til November, before we rush to complain. MOT!

12.) 10 Aug 2016 19:37:58
I'm not complaining in anyway I just can't see him scoring more than 10 based on the way he played v qpr in the short period he had. He had our best chance n missed. He's good but not good enough to get us in the playoffs imo.

13.) 11 aug 2016 01:29:22
wood ain't playing well because playing one up front makes the team want to hoof ball up all the time why get a striker who was involved in more goals than any player in england for 3 mill and bang him on wing why get antonsson and have him on bech waste of money if were to use em like this monk will learn quick 4-4-2 is what we need. hate this formation invites pressure but then again so does super sol bamba!

14.) 11 Aug 2016 09:42:02
Bamba did well lastnight, cooper was the 1 who was poor imo. Kemar roofe would struggle as a striker in this league he's really a winger. Chris wood is great at what he does, he's a big lad who was never going to get tons of goals but for me I can't fault him you just need another striker next to him.

Question: with all this talk of people wanting TC fired, who do you want to replace him? Personally I think TC should be given a few more games, all teams have a blip in their seasons. We had a great start to the season and there was no way we could of kept that going all season.


1.) 05 Nov 2017 21:52:22
Big blip

2.) 05 Nov 2017 22:54:02
Blip = w-d-l-l-d-l -w-d

More chance of signing Messi alf



05 Sep 2017 13:51:58
Surprisingly Ledley is still a free agent. Would definitely work wonders in our midfield. Also what about Guisseppe Rossi. He is still a free agent and I read somewhere that he is training with Leeds United. Also what about Jan Kirchhoff. He was Sunderlands only bright spark last year and was released in the summer.


1.) 05 Sep 2017 19:57:15
Personally, I believe that we have enough depth in our mid positions, without needing anyone else.



31 Aug 2017 20:13:47
Ex-Leed player Mowatt has joined Oxford on loan from Barnsley. I wonder what would of happened if we kept him


1.) 31 Aug 2017 20:18:59
He'd be cleaning boots and serving tea

2.) 31 Aug 2017 20:21:41
Not much by the looks off things. Coding get on the Barnsley team. Think that says it all. Pity as I thought he had a lot about him if he had of trimmed down a bit and got proper fit. But we don't care about what ifs now. ⚽️👍😃

3.) 31 Aug 2017 20:31:10
Nowhere near good enough. Fans wanted him at number 10, but he's way below the class of the likes of Pablo and Saiz.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 23:40:44
Not nice comments about a young lad trying to make his way in the game. Not surprised by some though. Same folk who just like to slag. Lees, Cooper, Chris Wood. Anyone will do. You can clean my boots mate.

5.) 01 Sep 2017 06:35:52
Whatever do you mean corky

6.) 01 Sep 2017 09:30:57
You know what i mean Wex. Dontcha?

7.) 01 Sep 2017 13:23:48
I do corky for a player life alex who was a good leeds United man deserves more



22 Aug 2017 10:46:31
Ok, so now for a question on strikers. Who would you like to see come in and replace Wood upfront. I made a list of everyone we have been linked with (or at least the ones I can remember) Shane Long, Charlie Austin, Troy Deeney, Jordon Rhodes, Ross McCormack, Leigh Griffiths, Jay-jay Grot, Rudy Gestede, Ashley Barnes. Or would you trust the likes of Ekuban, Doukara, Roofe, Wilks and Stokes upfront?


1.) 22 Aug 2017 10:55:44

2.) 22 Aug 2017 11:26:15
love all the speculation, but I think I have seen enough from TC, Rads and the recruitment team to trust they will bring in the right signings. Been a long while since I have thought that. Must be 15 years plus. MOT

3.) 22 Aug 2017 11:35:44
Henrique Dourado. He's fit in this team brilliantly.

4.) 22 Aug 2017 12:03:38
Of those Austin or Deeney but unlikely. Vydra would have suited us. Think we will buy from continent as clubs wanting silly money in England.

5.) 22 Aug 2017 12:04:44
Has Patrick Bamford moved anywhere yet, he might fitin

6.) 22 Aug 2017 12:11:45
Austin, Deeney, Wells, any or all would be good for me :) btw, did anyone notice Captain Cooper got in the football league team of the week?

7.) 22 Aug 2017 12:37:58
Deeny, long, Austin in that order for me, but I'd be surprised at any of those coming in

8.) 22 Aug 2017 13:42:27
Well done Coops - good effort.

9.) 22 Aug 2017 14:16:09
Bloody shame Waghorn has already signed for Ips***e other wise looks a bargain at 1m



22 Aug 2017 10:06:56
Bridcutt has joined Forest for 2 million, does this mean Cooper is now club captain?


1.) 22 Aug 2017 12:30:45
£1 million I think

Can't sign players till January but can agree to sign players. I think it'll be the 'next big thing' from China or Japan. As much as I would love a big sponsorship deal from the wealth of China it could also be a agreement with another club in Asia, like what we have with the second division Spanish team.

Free agent for the U23 side I think. Or it's a new sponsor. Orrr, we have sold a player for 75m to a Chinese team

Why British midfielders. All British players are over-priced. That's why TC and Orta went for foreign talent such as Saiz and Alioski, far cheaper unknowns that perform better than British players.

Best defender? Jansson? I didn't know Pontus left, could swear he played today. And we lost a international goalkeeper? Silvestri was a international goalkeeper. Only international keeper I know that we have is Green and as far as I know we haven't lost him yet
