This is getting beyond a joke. Major changes needed. Relegation candidates next season if Radz doesn't get this sorted?


1.) 17 Mar 2018 17:30:32
Radz get this sorted? Really? He's a mouse among lions. 2 manager 2 fails. DOOMED!

2.) 17 Mar 2018 17:45:52
Yep, you're right. there's no evidence Radz has a clue what he's doing, he now seems way out of his depth. Cellino did a real job on this guy. Do the right thing by the fans and sell on to a more appropriate custodian. And yourself a favour too before you the value plummets when in League One.

It seems Radz is now receiving real criticism from many quarters so, hopefully, good may come of this. Surely the time has come for more determined action and much better decision making. Talking a good game and not delivering does not go down well, and especially when being asked to pay very high ticket prices. The reality is you tend to get what you pay for - so i hope we cough-up for some proper players this summer and not BS the fans. Otherwise i think fans would have more respect for him if he recognised he was unlikely to be-able to deliver promotion within a reasonable time frame and sold the club to a wealthier entity. I think the fans deserve FAR more than they have been given this season.

LS11, you should save your money buy in the the 5 year plan,

2.) 11 Mar 2018 18:40:10
LS11 He said from the beginning 5 years. Fans including me want it to happen quicker. Personally, I don't see it happening until 2021.

3.) 12 Mar 2018 13:32:15
So you're looking at a 4.177 year plan then George? I Icke the positivity! 🤐😂🍻

Something has to be done. Radz is the main owner and it is beyond doubt that you generally get what you pay for; LUFC simply has to invest in quality players. This obviously requires the funds in the first place plus a skilful scout. And i suspect we have neither. If we had exceptional skill in scouting and managing then very occasionally a team can defy the odds if having modest funds. And it seems beyond doubt that we don't currently have that sort of skill in scouting. Quality players left (Wood, Taylor, amongst others) and simply were not replaced. And cracks seem to appearing in Board management, if perhaps that is less obvious than scouting for now. This is not looking good - something has to be done.


1.) 08 Mar 2018 06:27:49
Totally agree, something has to be done. Guess it hard for fans to take as we were top of div after 12 games and we didn’t look like conceding and had attacking flair. What huge difference from first 12 games to last 12 games of season.

2.) 08 Mar 2018 09:03:51
Orta our, that’s what needs to be done



05 Mar 2018 13:04:00
Whilst obviously unpleasant i wonder if a proper thrashing by Wolves could be the catalyst for Radz and the board to make fundamental change? The status quo looks untenable to me. Either Orta is crap at his job or Radz has been giving him peanuts to work with. One of these has to change for me.


1.) 05 Mar 2018 19:33:06
We will see after tomorrow night's game as a thrashing looks on the cards



04 Mar 2018 16:38:53
Hopefully Radz is making it his business to find out exactly why it has gone so badly wrong this season. He had signalled and expected top6 finish this season. And if he doesn't have the funds we had all hoped he did have then he definitely won't want to be wasting any more money on duff players! Continuing with a scout who brings knives to a gun fight doesn't make any sense. If Radz wishes to make another go of it then It looks to me as though the time has come to appoint a scout with a track record of success finding players suitable for this league. Then there may be hope for next season. Otherwise, rather than falsely raising the hopes of fans and taking their money, the right thing for Radz to do might be to find a new larger custodian of LUFC sooner rather than later. Maybe the consortium which looked at buying Newcastle United might be interested?


1.) 04 Mar 2018 17:42:48
Fairly good post LS11 but there lies the problem when you say appoint a scout who knows the league. Yes that helps but it's not the main problem. Us Leeds fans can tell Radz who to buy and that service comes free! We weren't wrong when we mentioned Flint Bryan and Brownhill for instance. The problem is a current unwillingness to purchase those type of players. Acquisition of Forshaw saw a break in that trend but much more is needed. When you look at who should be sold and kept in the summer, we only have in my opinion 14 players tops who are capable of playing in this division and only 3 of those look like they could cut it in the PL. Wex always retorts no guarantee of success and he's right but I like my chances a lot more putting 15m to 20m on the table to acquire those 3 players I mentioned than going to sunny Spain with half a million euros to unearth the gem Spanish clubs don't want but they're expected to storm the harder league of the English championship! Get real! Orta did find Saiz. I'll give him that but for every Saiz there's a couple of Klichs and sadly a Wiedwald. Let's hope no more than one though. The strategy only makes sense if you're not genuinely trying just yet to make it back. Radz said 5 years. Go figure it out guys.

2.) 04 Mar 2018 19:18:19
If Radz is not asking question now then the other investors should be, Rads has said five years because he doesn’t have the funds, he’s bought a Frist class restaurant and serving pie and mash and that aren’t going to work, you can serve up cheap food soon or later you reputation will go. He has done good buying back our ground but as Said by some he’s done that to guard his and the others investment, The only player any good out of the 26 bought in is Saiz but he has is problem, spitting and a bad temper, As I don’t share others point of view on this, I will again say Radz out,

3.) 04 Mar 2018 19:35:45
True, Radz has said five years so maybe i'm being a little unfair/hasty, George. It has been a bloody long time tho since we were in the Premiership. And we've lost many of our best players during this time - in many cases because LUFC were not in the Premiership. How long is long enough for fans to put up with this?

It's not as though they (and visiting supporters) are being asked to pay Premiership prices to see their team! Re Saiz, i happen to agree with Whiteman01 - i'd wager if, when he leaves he doesn't raise as much money as many expect because he comes with this problem. Come on, Radz, get this shambles sorted!

4.) 04 Mar 2018 20:11:23
You misunderstand post code. I'm not saying it's ethical, I'm not saying it's painless for fans and I'm not saying we don't deserve better. It's not especially ethical or wise, it does hurt and we definitely deserve better! I'm simply stating truth and facts. So may as well get used to it. I say Radz stays (for now) because out of all the people on Planet Earth he was the one who bought back the stadium. Our owners are gradually getting better. Our next owner after Radz will probably be the business, but you never know it could turn out to be Radz, but realistically in 2022. The thing I really object to is the inane recruitment policy. For instance, buying back Clayton would actually improve us quite a lot. Plus we need 3 new central defenders! Roll on July.

I agree with Leodis about Radz's PR. Drawing attention to your self by criticising others in public makes you look unprofessional and could be viewed as a poor sign of character. It's also probably a bit embarrassing for the club. Instead why not keep a low profile, concentrate on getting what you do right, and let your results on the pitch do the talking. Whether or not Wolves are operating appropriately and in the spirit of things could have been found out without a public outburst. So one wonders why he chose to go about it the way he did? Perhaps this is an indication Radz is worried he has bitten off more than he can chew by buying LUFC?

I agree with you, Georgie-Boy, about Radz's cynical attempts to play the fans and not address the real issues. To me we look to only have an improved version of Cellino - at least so far. And anything similar to Cellino ain't good. Pep Guardiola probably wouldn't get much out of our boys. if the eggs are off there isn't going to be a Michelin star omelette! And Radz is the owner at the top of this tree so HE is ultimately responsible. He has selected Orta, the manager and seemingly issued the long term contracts to muppets. He isn't doing too well is he. My concern is he looks at risk of repeating similar mistakes to Cellino (new players on the cheap, let the better players go, talk a good game but under-deliver) . And then guess what. he achieves jack over the 5yrs and sells up for a modest profit whilst the fans have been cheated once again. I honestly did initially think Radz was much better than this but the evidence so far is not good.

I hope he does reads these comments - there's a lot of Yorkshire common sense here from his customers which could be very valuable to him. He talked about longer terms plans yet followed in Cellino's footsteps by pretty quickly dispensing with the first coach. And some have reasonably said TC now looks a miracle worker with the points he secured with this bunch of players (when they were actually playing and not suspended or injured) . There is no time like the present to show you are serious. IF Orta is up to the job then presumably Radz will give him a proper budget for the summer. Now, i wonder if that fills Radz and the fans with confidence based upon Orta's track record (with us and elsewhere) ? There can only be one choice - get a new scout and make sure you align him with the coach and results on the field. Otherwise you are wasting your and the fans money by repeating the same mistakes and creating greater fan unrest.

I don't have a season ticket and don't plan to until the Board stops taking the fans for a ride. Orta is responsible for recruiting yet it appears, at least as present, he isn't accountable for it. That makes no sense whatsoever! The whole Board, and obviously including the recruiter, need to be aligned with the results on the field. I sincerely hope the Board have this same agenda as the fans otherwise we may only have a 'new and improved Cello Mk2' on our hands, i. e. mediocre performance for yet more years until another buyer fancies a go with the Club. I still hope Radz is much better than that and not yet another chancer. All eyes on the summer dealings, i guess, and we may know if he is serious or not.
