I am feeling very nervous about all the spying thing. They are going to try to dock us points and they will be looking at 15 so that we are outside the 6. I don't see the difference in this and going to sit in the stands of an opponent on a wed night before a sat game. ridiculous. MoT.

Let them try, nothing in the laws to really charge us with. Even if the did us for unsportsmanlike behaviour a token fine imo would be all. A R must have good legal people working on his behalf who should be able to defend any charge. Let's get this straight this type of thing goes on, we are of the first.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 14:42:53
Given that the scout, not spy, was watching from a public footpath I really can't see what the problem is at all. Give Cellino a ring, he knows some good lawyers :)

If they don't want anyone to see put a wall up.

{Ed001's Note - is that you Mr Trump?}

4.) 13 Jan 2019 15:39:51
Can't really see what difference it makes, our or the opposition either play well or not in a match situation don't see how watching a team train will or would change that .
Derby were lucky to not to get totally hampered.

Nice one Ed001 :D.



15 Mar 2016 22:07:22
Laugherty linked again. Please say NO to this cart horse. Look somewhere else please



1.) 16 Mar 2016 10:45:23
Can't see him being better than we've already got. In fact, I can't see the value in taking him on loan now as our strikers are scoring and we are not going to go up in any case. Having said that if Grabban became available on loan with an option to buy, I think this would be a good deal.


2.) 16 Mar 2016 11:10:31
Its quite clear he has seen what has happened with Bridcutt and is desperate for game time.

Frankly speaking I would rather give opportunities to Erwin and McKay. and try and bring wood back into play.

3.) 16 Mar 2016 12:23:10
I'd rather see stokes or mullhern given a chance than pay having a laugh- erty silly money to come in and split the dressing room with the wages he would demand. Any way what's up with the leaner, meaner, hungry Chris wood we were told to expect from our coach slim?

4.) 16 Mar 2016 17:31:15
If he had wanted to come that much he would have pushed for a move, now he has had no game time and I agree no better or worst than what we have .
Gabban would be excellent signing your bang on the money MM.

5.) 18 Mar 2016 20:36:16
This is just the usual crap from the 'male' as they have nothing better to do. Lafferty will not be coming to Leeds any time soon. Why do we need him? He might need us, but we certainly don't need him, we have enough of our own players needing to play.



10 Apr 2013 03:59:21
After reading this it makes all the speculation look a bit silly now.

Chelsea are continuing to pay their ex-boss £40,000 a week under the terms of his contract, which has this season and next to run.

And Championship outfit Leeds, who sacked Neil Warnock last week, can only offer the Champions League-winning manager around £8,000 a week.

OK so who's next in the frame



1.) Does that mean that if he got another job they would still have to pay him (a la Leeds with Fowler et al) or does it end when he gets a new job?

2.) 40k a week to do nowt or 8k a week to try and sort out the mess that is Leeds Utd. Tough decision.

I know we haven't dipped into the market as much as we all would like, but in regards to the starting line up, I think we are a better team than last season. We have lost one player, cult hero yes, but always seemed to be in the naughty chair for something.

Numerous times over the last couple of seasons he has been out reportedly through injury but rumours of a rift or training ground incident or just left out as he was by the forgettable sh1thead Monk, Christensen and Bielsa. He was like the Girl friend that you couldn't quite trust but was so good looking you couldn't get rid of. Better off without especially if you had to square the books.

Ben White maybe be tested in that role by bielsa, with cooper and Barardi as a back up. If Roofe (when fit) and Bamford fire up a bit and Edmunston can contribute along with Harrison, Costa and Roberts and future stars like Bogusz, Shackleton and Stevens, not to mention Clarke, Klitch Alioski, Hernandez, Forshaw Douglas, and Phillips, it is the making of a very good squad in my opinion.

Too may people writing us off too early and not giving the SUPPORT that SUPPORTERS should give to their team. Top two for me. Marching on Together with only some of the supporters apparently. Its a Shame.


1.) 29 Jul 2019 09:38:23
Fair point about Supporters showing support for the club Fred, but with the latest rumours of KP wanting to 'force his way out' it suggests a bit of disharmony in the camp. If this is true (and I know media outlets such as YEP sometimes like to rock the boat) , but IF it's true then I don't see us equalling or bettering last seasons 3rd place due to a lack of focus, motivation and 'buy-in' from the disharmonious players. Equally these reports about KP could just be lazy reporting.

2.) 29 Jul 2019 10:40:36
sorry but i hate all these if you don't think we will do well and support the club you ain't a proper supporter. i think its a load of tosh

i have supported millwall. sorry leeds since 89, seen some great times and some awful times, for every win against Barcelona and man utd i have seen defeat to sutton

i have seen good leeds teams and bad leeds teams, i have been optomistic and pessermitic at no time has my love for the club been more or less. if anything i love the club more when times are hard.

i am gutted at the moment as we was on the verge of the holy land and threw it away, then instead of building on that we have gone backwards.

i don't see how we are stronger than last year, i don't see how last years weaknesses (failing to convert, soft touch and useless at set plays in both boxes) has been address again if anything we are worse

and it hurts to see the club close and then not make it then sell our young players

so no i don't think we are going up but don't think that makes me or anyone else who thinks this less of a fan. we still march on together we just expect different results.

3.) 29 Jul 2019 11:09:39
Another point on this bit from
Different perspective. I think palace will have a bad season I think they could go down think some on here might agree. my dads a palace fan massive season ticket holder proper fan

He thinks palace will go down does that make him less of a fan or just able to see what’s obviously to most that his club are not great?

Same with Leeds do we have to think promotion beckons to be a proper fan?

4.) 29 Jul 2019 11:30:52

No one is saying your not a bloke who looks at the results and performances of Leeds United football club with a huge amount of interest. We can tell that by your constant moanings about lots of relevent issues.

I think what is being said is that the word "supporter" has a clue in the actual word.
Just enlighten stupid me as to how your constant doom and gloom postings show the "support" element of that particular word.

Oh, and btw, I already know how you feel about Phillips so no need to waste your posting with redundant information once again.

{Ed001's Note - for me I don't see the problem with him having a negative view point, if you don't have the positive and negative aspects in here there would be nothing to talk about. The problem I think that he has is that he doesn't just state his viewpoint and leave it there, unless responding to others. It is that he will just bang on and on and on and on about the same thing. It becomes repetitive and pointless as everyone already knows. We all know what he thinks regarding Phillips, so why does he have to repeat it on a regular basis? Unless there is something new to add, move on and talk about something else.

That is why this ridiculous patting on the back of himself for no apparent reason, as he has said nothing worth patting himself on the back for, grates on people's nerves. It is just another excuse to spew the same diatribe we have all read a thousand times before. It is boring. If you have to say 'I told you so' then you are just being petty imo. It is not like you should be able to get any satisfaction out of being right when it is about your team doing badly!}

5.) 29 Jul 2019 11:39:28
1 quid bet Bermo (I’m not rich) . I don’t think palace will go down.

6.) 29 Jul 2019 11:43:02
If Bamford starts scoring Fred?
He may get 1 or 2 then go 6 without.
So just untried Edmundson really to start up front and a dodgy defence with no height.
I agree with bw. We haven’t addressed the main issues.
We actually signed a winger when assists and chances is not our problem. Scoring them and stopping then is.

7.) 29 Jul 2019 13:14:04
For me axe support doesn’t translate as expect to win support is to hope they win and be there when they lose

If they lose I’m still Leeds just angry. Support is being there win or lose

Ed as for your comments I have been slaughtered on here time and again which is fair enough I do ask for it. However with this example years back I slated Beradi and was told I was a mug Beradi is class what do you know you don’t go to games ect. now those fans who slated me are now saying what I said which again don’t matter but when slated I think I have every right to stand my ground where I come from I would even expect a fair enough mate you did say maybe people were wrong to mug you off. but seems that ain’t how it is done on this site

Have opinions fair enough slate people opinions fair enough even get personal but when a guy is slated then years on it turns out I might of not been the mug I was called I think it’s fair enough to bring it up.

{Ed001's Note - so what if they have changed their mind? It is just being petty to say 'I was right'. Be a bigger man and just move on. Why would you expect anyone to say that when you never stop telling them you were right?}

8.) 29 Jul 2019 13:44:04
See your point Ed but you also like a statement and comment on here I like it as I think your very knowledgable but would be interesting to see how you would react if slated

I guess I should be the bigger bloke but when told time and again I’m a mug what do I know don’t go to games not a proper fan., . people can change minds but some get personal against me proper slag me off for my view then years later agree with a so much as fair play mate I take that back maybe Beradi is poor and you ain’t a mug who has a limited kmowledge if the club I love.

{Ed001's Note - you don't see what goes on, we editors get hundreds of abusive messages a day and rarely bother to respond. It is just not worth it. You don't win by getting into an argument, you are doing exactly what the snipers want you to do and then people forget what you were actually saying.}

9.) 29 Jul 2019 13:50:39
I did post a reply to this debate around 12 but obviously overlooked. Once again i just want to point out that we are all SUPPORTERS no matter what our opinion of the team is at this time or what we predict for the future. I do not think we will be in top two but does not mean i will not be hoping we do. Just because you hold a positive view does not mean you have the moral high ground, my view is what i believe. BW can be an asshole but it does not bother me and in the past, as BIGE, i have some heated exchanges with him but at the moment agree with some of his views. How he articulates his points are up to him and he can expect flak and to be fair he gets it like he is now. How i read his points is my choice, if its the same old thing i can skip over it, or respond if he is doing my head in.
This is a banter page but if we all have to write in a specific way and stay positive then there will not be much banter going on.

10.) 29 Jul 2019 14:41:13
ED, its not about the team doing badly, when the comment of told you so is posted it’s to all the righteous on here who have a go every time when someone post things they don’t like and dig that your not a Leeds fan, not a proper supporter, or your negative, and you can see all then on this page, it’s to point out that what was said was right in the first place and how silly they are not, like bermondsetwhite we all been and had Our eyes tested, think some should do the same. Come on Leeds I hope we are all behind you.

11.) 29 Jul 2019 14:42:14
I love reading Bermos posts (don't always agree with them) but he is never out of order. He is often repetitive, but that is his right. If I disagree I have two choices, respond and feed the fire or ignore and move on. Long may he post. There is no such thing as a bad post on here (The eds intercept the BAD ones) just posts we disagree with.

12.) 29 Jul 2019 15:37:32
BW is right we all support Leeds and none of us are writing off the chance to get promoted. We all now anything is possible in this league, who thought Huddersfield would go up? People state their opinion every year on have we improved are we better off, but its an opinion. I do not see the need to be labelling people doomsters and gloomsters and questioning their loyalty because they hold a different opinion to you. That does not prove you are right and is a bit childish to be fair.
I have been going to matches for 50 odd years and will go for another 50 given the chance. Am i happy with the squad at present, no. Do i think we are going to be top two, no. Do i think we will get in play offs, maybe. However i will be taking my seat next season hoping i am wrong and cheering the lads on no matter what.
So all you cloud surfers and hot tub of hopers have your opinion which i respect and i wish i could be that optimistic but i can not but that does not give you any moral highground or make me less of a supporter. If we go up i will be the first to raise my hands and applaud the lads and admit my fears were ungrounded. But if we don't you will get my i told you so post.

13.) 29 Jul 2019 15:19:39
Last sentence from the Ed kind of sums Berm up really.
Good poster but a bit like a broken record.

14.) 29 Jul 2019 15:31:19
Just for the record Berm i don't believe Beradi is a bad player and i know other Leeds fans think the same. OK he can be hot headed and dive in but when fit is a good squad player and i personally like his passion on the pitch. As for him playing CB he was very good at start of last season in that position and only an injury got Jansson back in the side at his expense.
So Berm please don't believe that all Leeds fans agree with you on this one.

15.) 29 Jul 2019 15:43:06
Excellent post Fred. I agree 100% with everything you said.

16.) 29 Jul 2019 15:44:39
Bloody hell i did wonder what happened to Bige!

17.) 29 Jul 2019 15:45:38
thanks for the support and beislia bub I agree and i am very aware i am an arsewhole. a massive one. I often get on my own nerves and a lot of my posts are tounge in cheek, i have met a couple of people from this site to go to a game and have a beer and night out in leeds and they will say i only joke about and not to take anything i say seriously

i know i go on (often tounge in cheek sometimes not) i know my opinions are strong but i hope no one takes them personally other than kp beradi and the hock who should take everything i say to heart

i do get angry at times when people have a dig espcially when they then agree with me at a later point, and not onyl negivtive when i was positive about wood some also slated me

so when people like mm with all due respect say i don't go to games and only have a limited knowledge of the club my reply will oviobusly be that i am just trying to save him and the others who disagree a couple of years of having a pop as down the line they will learn i am right. because of course i am the orical

everyone has the right to an opinion that what makes this site great but there are two opions those who disagree with me and those who are right

either way win lose or draw we all march on together i am cursed and not seen us win since 2002 but still wouldn't have it any other way.

Watched 'Do you want to win' last night on Prime. Great watch for those that haven't seen it. Well worth 30 day free trial of Prime just to watch it. MoT.

Good tip Fred, thanks.



07 May 2019 04:01:54
I, like every Leeds fan around the world am devastated by the events over the last four weeks. I have sat down and typed dozens of posts only to delete them before posting as I don't have the words to explain my feelings. Like Danum in a previous post I am the ultimate pessimist. I take the worst case scenario then look for a positive outcome after that. So in keeping with my doomsday disorder I look at the statement below as a light at the end of a very darkened tunnel. I hope and prey for promotion this year but as a poor alternative - 'PSG’s owner considering buying Championship club – Leeds United’s Aspire links look interesting'. MOT. WE ARE LEEDS UNITED.


1.) 07 May 2019 09:21:46
i think there are a lot of positives from us not going up. staying in championship will give the under 23s more chances next year i would think and that is a huge positive plus MB will of learnt a lot and should be stronger. my football brain (so called brain) is saying if we don't go up we should be favorites next year but it don't always work out like that.

2.) 07 May 2019 11:41:56
Berm Favorites you say? Do the relegated teams from the PL with parachute money disappear into football's quantum realm thereby not fulfilling any of their Championship fixtures?

3.) 07 May 2019 12:42:29
The relegated team? There's 1 (one) of them in the top 6, with the teams coming down I can't see them being much different.

4.) 07 May 2019 12:35:41
Bermo, this is the Bermo I love! It’s about the football we play and how we improve. This year has been a year of improvement for so many in the club. Yesterday around 8000 at Elland Road watching under 23 football! Third place in the league, play off football, panic to buy tickets for all the games at this stage of the season and a city buzzing!

I actually think we could be a couple of years of organically producing our best side. But that doesn’t mean to say promotion couldn’t happen before that. We are rebuilding a culture of success at the club, chasing promotion, getting in the playoffs, winning the youth leagues, winning cup games and penalty Shootouts! And we are doing it by trying to play good football.

I’d love to see Bielsa staying and having a crack at year 2 if we don’t go up. But I think he needs to want to do it, the club needs to want him to do it as well and there needs to be a convincing and achievable plan for what has to change.



29 Apr 2019 01:10:44
What a ridiculous state of affairs. If we had put the ball out of play every time one of their cheating barstewards went down we would still be playing injury time. Their tactic of going down every time they were tackled played against them. Only problem, we gave them the goal back. First thing you are told when you start playing football is play to the whistle. And hats off to Pontus, never say die, he showed is class and respect he has to Leeds United. Only one to have the kahunas to show his pride. So what if we get trashed by the media, we are Dirty Leeds everyone hates us anyway. We should have kept the lead not give it back. There was nothing wrong with Jedek the cheating Australian Bast***. He got up as soon as the goal was scored. Bring on Villa at wembley. MoT. WE ARE LEEDS UNITED.

It was Kodak, and he was carried off, but never a foul anyhow.

21 Apr 2019 04:28:26
Guy's I, like the rest of you are gutted. If I was 50 years younger or for that matter 5 years older, I would have cried on Sat morning. However we are still in with a very good chance. There is no way the Blunts are going to get 9 points out of their last three games. I watched them against a 10 man Notts Forest team and they were sh1t. Maybe wigan was a wake-up call for everyone concerned. If we bounce back with two wins and a draw against I think that will do us, although I hope for three wins with a thumping of Ipswich to get some goals back just in case. Goal diff might do us in the end. Anyway - BELIEVE - MoT - Everyone Loves Leeds.

Al, he only scored a handful for us I think (Barn Door Billy 2) . He was rumoured for a few seasons then when he came to us he flopped big time. I was really looking forward to his arrival as I thought he was brilliant. In regards to the result on Sat. I think a draw would be a real disappointment for us. This is one we should win. To be honest if we can't beat them on Saturday we will struggle as we have basically the same run in, but teams seem to give an extra 20% when they are playing us and the refs probably give the the same 20% more decisions to the other teams. 3-0 on Sat and then another 15 points on the run in will do us very nicely I think. MOT.

I don't think the reputation of Swansea will change after today as no one else really cares other than us and swansea. They obviously had a target to get in from transfers and once that was met they could hang on to their best assets hence Fer and James staying. I hope James does what Taylor did with us. stops playing, faking injury etc. There is nothing worse than making a player play when he doesn't want to play for you. Hopefully James steps into that category. They might rue the day. Never the less we will go Marching on. WE ARE LEEDS.

Whats the difference in scouts or indeed the manager going to watch an opponents match the previous week. It's a lot off bullshoot. Points deduction was always going to be the FL's goal. Wouldn't surprise me if they hit us with 15 points to get us out of the top 6. Problem is for them, we would still come close to a top two finish. The day in the life of a Leeds United Supporter .

Martyn, I agree 100% with you. I stopped posting because of the Bull some of the folk on here post and the crap they give the team. We are playing arguably the most attractive football I think we have ever played since I started supporting them even in the early seventies we never had 70% of possession week in week out like we do now. I have supported the team since 1967.

We just can't score at the moment. Ups and downs is correct. Only problem is when the team are down we as supporters are supposed to try to lift the team, not kick them while they are down. One thing that came out of the documentary for me was how much the negative comments affected the players and their families. Anyway, We can't change that. MoT. well most of us.
