Honestly think if Rads does not put in the investment needed to get up in this window, he is absolutely mad and will be to blame if this opportunity is not taken. All this talk of punching above your weight, you are where you are in the league on results and after 26 games we are top and deserve to be, because we have won the most points . There are 20 games left and we need to continue to be able to perform and play our brand of football for all of these games .


1.) 02 Jan 2019 14:21:14
So no blame in your opinion for bielsa who has said he doesn't want or need players? You might think you know more than bielsa leeds1970 but I prob think he's forgotten more than you and I know about coaching.

In bielsa I trust.

2.) 02 Jan 2019 14:46:59
Martyn is right! Absolutely no point in buying players that Bielsa doesn’t want. He is so specific about how he plays and the qualities that he wants. In summer he has a lot more time to mould players but not now. Bielsa has to be honest about his squad and what he wants and then see what happens. We probably will never know the ins and outs!

Other thing to bear in mind that given the regime of the team under Bielsa, not every player will be up for it. So some will rule themselves out!

3.) 02 Jan 2019 17:54:11
Well. put Spanish. To some players it will be too much like hard work.

4.) 02 Jan 2019 18:33:59
Think MB said he was happy with the players, because he did not want to undermine the current players confidence by saying some of them might be replaced . You offer any manager the option of better players and they will want them, it goes without saying. You just don't want to undermine the good players you want to keep.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 19:17:43
He also said January is never a good time to buy players because you pay over inflated prices. If players are really that good their teams don't let them go in January unless offers above their worth come in.

6.) 02 Jan 2019 20:22:38
Martyn is spot on,

How many players are going to be available that

Bielsa wants
Want to come here
Will be able to contribute to this style from day one
Are available
Are better than what we have got?

It’s not going to be an enormous list!

7.) 02 Jan 2019 20:45:21
Here here spanish. Someone thinking with their head and not their heart.

8.) 02 Jan 2019 21:48:51
Bang right Martyn, and Spanish. That list of players is zero. The style and pace of MB’s game plan means that no one can walk in, in this window, and be able to play at the same level of the players we already have. Money would be wasted, on anything but a GK, and even that person would need to have the distribution skills that have made Bailey our #1, and to be fair, for his flaws, there are not many keepers who can do what Marcelo asks for from the GK position.

9.) 03 Jan 2019 17:56:38
it is possible to make signings and not out them in the team immediately though. there are still plenty of games up to May and nowt wrong with bringing someone on board and working with them on the training ground and U23s for a few months then bring them in to reinforce us during the run in.



20 Dec 2018 17:21:24
For me it would be a keeper and utility defender/ centre back. On top of these 2 saw the names of Adam Reach and Andy King mentioned, would take both with a striker to replace Saiz / share the workload up front. Top quality players on loan to buy, 6 months wages for a few top players is not going to cost the earth. 3 to 5 million invested now would really strengthen our challenge. 24 games to go and if we got 45 points we would be in a very strong position. Win all our home games and get some draws, maybe 3 or 4 win on the road. Long way to go, a good start is half the battle.

The soon to be former EFL, CEO's final act is to give us a £200K fine. Well we will always know what you are!


1.) 18 Feb 2019 21:21:17
Just as a matter of interest, does anyone know what happens to the money that the FL are robbing us of?

2.) 18 Feb 2019 21:30:25
Glad it’s over but £200k is 8 times the fine Palace got for obtaining the opposition team sheet prior to a match! That shows how badly the EFL and certain other teams wanted to damage us with their vested interests and historic antipathy. The idea of a judge poring over it in an appeal in the courts probably had a bearing on their thinking. I bet certain individuals didn’t fancy getting called to court to substantiate comments about bolt cutters and such like either.

3.) 18 Feb 2019 21:38:57
The irony in the club statement : “we would like to thank Shaun Harvey and the EFL. ” 😂😂😂.



18 Feb 2019 08:32:04
Everybody says how wasteful we are with our chances, even MB. We have come a long way and are still work in progress, From my perspective I would much sooner have the high possession stats with low conversion rate than the other way around. Think its easier to work on converting possession and chances. Its like the final piece in the jigsaw. Hopefully we can get it to click with the current players for the rest of the season.


1.) 18 Feb 2019 10:15:43
We have been promising someone a hammering all season and it just hasn't happened, perhaps we will get a few games where we score lots and redress the balance on goal diff, we make enough chances usually.

2.) 18 Feb 2019 11:56:45
The ship has sailed on the goal difference front. Not realistically going to catch the others now, not enough games left. I do wish at times, that rather than seeming to try and almost walk the ball in most times, we would blast it.

3.) 18 Feb 2019 13:38:19
While I agree with the shoot on sight bit, I don't think it's too late to catch the others, the Blunts have a good better than ours by 7, but, a 2-0 win for us and 2-0 defeat for them and it's down to a difference of 3. It won't matter anyway because we'll get more points than them by the season's end 😊.



15 Feb 2019 18:13:41
Douglas, Foreshaw and Clarke look like they are the only players who missed Wednesday night and are not with U23's tonight. Think Foresaw and Clarke are not that far away, hope Douglas will be getting close also. Full squad for the run in would be great news.


1.) 15 Feb 2019 21:01:58
Under 23s just about do enough to beat Notts County 2-1 and get three valuable points in the premier league cup. Taking the leaf out of the first team in the nit so good ways, dominated the game, loads of attempts in goal, conceded from a set piece, albeit a good one and hanging on in the final minutes!
Beradi and Dallas played around 30 mins. Brown and Roberts the full 90. Roberts had enough chances to have got a double hat trick and blazed them all over the top!

Brown some nice touches, don’t know if it’s just me but looks knackered towards the end of games but then produces some of his best touches. Leif Davis had a strong game, as did Robbie Gotts, Stevens started well but faded a bit. Struick is benefiting from a good run in the team and looking much more solid.

Nice to see Bailey back in goal and making some good stops. Really should have won this by about 5 clear goals!

2.) 15 Feb 2019 21:53:47
Cheers Leeds Espanol.

3.) 15 Feb 2019 22:14:38
Cheers Spanish.

4.) 15 Feb 2019 22:16:31
Thanks Spanish for another excellent post, unable to get there this evening hope to get to next match on Monday. Looks like everyone needs intense shooting/ finishing practice along with first team so we can finish teams off early.

5.) 15 Feb 2019 22:28:41
Not sure how it will effect Roberts, to be fair he got into some good positions but the shooting. High and over every time and the others started to catch the bug! A bit ironic that the winning goal was a scrappy, poked in goal by Edmondson! They all count, don’t need to be spectacular just get the bloody ball in the net!

6.) 16 Feb 2019 08:33:28
I always think that Roberts plays as if he's in a training match or friendly, not as if 3 points are at stake. Do think the lad may have some talent but he appears lazy!

7.) 16 Feb 2019 09:23:59
Mezzer, you are right, it’s a sort of relaxed and laid back style. To be fair, he worked pretty hard last night, but seriously the finishing. Around 6 shots all looking more like rugby conversions .

Brown has a similar laid back style as well.

8.) 16 Feb 2019 10:30:24
Just a thought. I wonder what goes through the mind of Tyler Roberts? After having two attempts and both soaring way over the bar. You and I would say, Right, next time I must NOT lean back. I must keep it down. What does he do, next attempt, lean back, row Z (car park actually) . Does he not learn?

9.) 16 Feb 2019 10:42:03
Roberts has great feet and plays with a swagger I like a lot

Finishing we can work on.

10.) 16 Feb 2019 11:32:07
Other Woody, we certainly need to!

11.) 16 Feb 2019 13:45:26
Roberts is the kind of player we can't afford at this time of the season. We can't wait for his finishing to be "worked on" in the first team, he needs to be doing this in the under23's but clearly isn't learning.

12.) 17 Feb 2019 08:49:20
Mezzer you’ve clearly never coached young players

I’ve one former player, now at Liverpool that was rejected by 3 local clubs before I took him on

You need patience

Roberts is what 20?

He’s got 4/ 5 years to develop not 4/ 5 days


( That last word is important )



14 Feb 2019 15:21:43
Beradi, Dallas, Douglas, Foreshaw, Clarke and Brown (who has not played yet) all to come back into the squad. Shackleton really pressing hard for game time. BPF needed as sub goalie. Looks like one or two might not even make match day squad when (and if ) we ever get a fully fit squad. Klich and Alioski might be on bench with Douglas and Brown in and Clarke or Shacks to drop out of match day squad altogether.


1.) 14 Feb 2019 17:10:31
Would pick allioski over Douglas on current form.

2.) 15 Feb 2019 00:19:32
The next starting 11 will be the same as the last starting 11, Bub doesn't like changing his team around.



12 Feb 2019 11:53:44
If we can win next 3, then 3 of the next 5, we would have 7 games left where four or five wins would be enough. 10 wins from the next 15 games is achievable . Even 9 wins might be enough, that allows for 6 defeats. that's allowing for reversals against the three of the top teams and there are 2 or 3 banana skins in there also. Have always thought
Sheff Weds and Wigan at Elland Rd in April might be 2 massive fixtures for us.
(win next 3)
Leeds United v Swansea City
Queens Park Rangers v Leeds United
Leeds United v Bolton Wanderers
March (win 3 from 5)
Leeds United v West Bromwich Albion
Bristol City v Leeds United
Reading v Leeds United
Leeds United v Sheffield United
Leeds United v Millwall
April (win 4 or 5 from last 7 )
Birmingham City v Leeds United
Preston North End v Leeds United
Leeds United v Sheffield Wednesday
Leeds United v Wigan Athletic
Brentford v Leeds United
Leeds United v Aston Villa
Ipswich Town v Leeds United.


1.) 12 Feb 2019 12:52:36
One game at time

Only way to do it and remain sane.

2.) 12 Feb 2019 13:15:46
I can see a minimum 27 points taking us to at least 84 points.

3.) 12 Feb 2019 14:09:17
Leeds, one game at a time for me I do hope and pray your post is right, if we don’t make it that Radz has to answer for it.

4.) 12 Feb 2019 18:16:40
I reckon another 34 points to come 😁.

5.) 12 Feb 2019 18:56:54
Let's get the three points tomorrow first. I hope we can stop conceding the first goal virtually every game.

6.) 12 Feb 2019 19:22:36
We have a lot to do, but others have more.
One worry, Norwich and West Brom always seem to get decisions.
or am I biased.

7.) 12 Feb 2019 21:56:45
Oh, I like this game.

Leeds United v Swansea City DRAW
Queens Park Rangers v Leeds United WIN
Leeds United v Bolton Wanderers WIN
March (win 3 from 5)
Leeds United v West Bromwich Albion LOSE
Bristol City v Leeds United DRAW
Reading v Leeds United WIN
Leeds United v Sheffield United LOSE
Leeds United v Millwall DRAW
April (win 4 or 5 from last 7 )
Birmingham City v Leeds United DRAW
Preston North End v Leeds United DRAW
Leeds United v Sheffield Wednesday WIN
Leeds United v Wigan Athletic DRAW
Brentford v Leeds United WIN
Leeds United v Aston Villa DRAW
Ipswich Town v Leeds United WIN

Is that enough, over to the stats man.

8.) 12 Feb 2019 22:01:00
Appalling decision to give West Brom a penalty, blatant dive by Gayle.

9.) 12 Feb 2019 22:18:59
Of gUn, you have us down for seven draws, think they are all winable . Think we could win at least 5 of them but maybe slip up elsewhere. Think of we are are on our best game we should pick up enough points,30 would be good.

10.) 13 Feb 2019 13:43:42
We'll beat WBA and the Blunts, you heard it here first 😉.

Its not how many new players you bring in, it is how you integrate them into the team, a team going up has the benefit of having bedded in together over a successful season. They are a team not a collection of individuals, I believe MB is well aware of this, he also knows how much coaching and training he needs to put into any player to get them up to the standards he requires. This is why he depends on a hard core of players and then introduces new or young players back in gradually rather than putting them straight in. He only puts them in the team when he believes they will improve the team rather than weaken it . In MB I trust but we will need to strengthen.

Thought we looked far better with Bamford on the pitch . There was one moment when Alioski looked up, edge of the box and seemed shocked that he had the option of playing the ball to a centre forward who was really showing for it . He got a great ovation when coming off, which always says a lot and he did loads of good work. Once he settles in to the team, he could be the real deal.

The attacker played Ayling, he was going no where with the ball, Ayling stuck a leg out and he fell over it. You would be very disappointed if you did not get it, But he played for it.

We have been up near the top of the league for a large part of the season. Some of our performances of late have not been great but despite this we have dug out some results. Can we finish the job . We can beat every team is this league on our day. Can we put in 10 winning performances in the next 15 games or Wins 9 Draws 3 Losses 3, this is achievable. This means the teams below us have to win eleven or twelve of their remaining fixtures to get 89 or 90 points. Their win ratio is about 50% with 25% draws and 25% losses . Eight wins four draws and only three losses would give anyone of them 28 points added to their current totals of between of 53 and 54 points. This would put them anywhere between 81 and 82 points. So any of these teams have to perform better than this if they are to get above 88 points. They would need 10 wins 4 draws and only 1 loss to the end of the season.
