Just thinking more about this Jack Clarke move now that he's been loaned back to us - it is quite extraordinary. They've seemingly given us over £8m up front and then the player back for the crucial season (for us anyway) !? Daniel Levy is apparently a notoriously tough negotiator. Is this showing the depth of the Bielsa/ Pochettino relationship? All our incoming transfers have only happened in last few days - so Spurs really have baled us out on the face of it.

Think that is exactly what it is down to. Poch trusts Bubs to develop him in the right way and knows he will be looked after.

2.) 03 Jul 2019 23:44:39
I agree. Tell me wife.



23 Oct 2017 20:28:26
Tuesday will be a good test but I hope TC arranges protection for Saiz on Friday. He ran Wednesday ragged for 15 minutes and he did the same to Bristol City - and thankfully we got the early goal against them. I think they will try and clatter him early on Friday.

They couldn't get near Saiz for the first 15 minutes and if we'd scored first, who knows how the match would have panned out. I like the idea of trying Shaughnessy in front of Pennington and Pontus as a sweeper but we are definitely missing the Batty or Vinnie type and we haven't got one, not till January anyway. I think he needs to pack central midfield a bit more and just have Saiz and Pablo behind Lasogga.

Need batty, vinny and hunter at this rate. Seems like another manager with no plan b

2.) 02 Oct 2017 14:04:35
I'm not sure I agree 100% Martyn, TC is trying different things but has so far failed to find a way around a particular type of team. I think he will continue to look for ways to crack this but we need to do it quickly and to stop the rot.

3.) 02 Oct 2017 15:32:54
Harsh martyn. If TC don't have the personnel to play more aggressively then he don't have them. You can't teach a softy how to become a hard man.

4.) 02 Oct 2017 17:53:25
Same formation different players. We slagged monk off for never changing formation. Then is it orta, s fault for buying woosies?

5.) 02 Oct 2017 19:33:20
I agree with Martyn on this point, and saying it’s not TC’s fault we didn’t sign the players, well it is, if you do your homework for this league the you would see we need a tough midfield, teams with a strong midfield do well in the championship! and as Martyn says we did slag Monk off continuously for the same thing! Last season we had a good defence but not a lot else, this season a good defence and a forward line but again midfield let's us down it’s got to be sorted ASAP! MOT

6.) 02 Oct 2017 23:30:39
haha nice to see reality setting in ;) you have a shocking defence apart from ayling and jansson the rest are awful, cooper is a league 1 defender, your striker lasogga is lazy who doesn't do anything unless it's put on a plate for him and your midfield is bang average, I mean really did you expect anything more from some of your transfer buys?

Lol alioski is a bag full of skill but very little else like no strength atall, samu saiz is like playing against a kid who can't take anyone on lol you have about 3 maybe 4 good players but none of which are amazing. Your gk is the most pathetic gk ive seen at Leeds In along time who looks petrified in goal lol I do find it funny though how you all got excited about winning the basic teams in the league and then reality hits when you play a team capable of challenging lol

Wow your team must be the most boring in the world if you have to find fun on here, what a sad little life you lead. go out and enjoy yourself I'm sure they will find a space for you on the sunshine bus.

I don’t know what your point is Odea odea! You are only telling us what we already know! We are all quite capable on here to discuss what is good and what is not, so at this time we really don’t need your posts, thank you all the same. It must be very nice and extremely rewarding supporting a team like yours that is perfect in every way, unfortunately for us things have gone a little wrong but we will be back, just like last time when we were Champions League Semi Finalists, let us know if you would like us to tell you what that was like! Anyway, hope you have a nice time at the bingo with your Uncle and please feel free to come back and bless us with your knowledge of our team and our shortfalls! MOT

Notice he won't say who his team is Mike? Must be ace eh

12.) 03 Oct 2017 16:33:47
I said at the start of the season what a joke you were as a club to seriously think players such as alioski and samu saiz would get you challenging for the top 6. there is a very good reason why samu saiz has never played top level football and that's because he's a lightweight who is very predictable, same with alioski.

As for lasogga and your gk there clubs were that keen to get rid of them that one replaced your gk with a 35 year old gk and the other paid a large sum of wages just to get him moved on lol it's actually embarrassing and now if any of you watched the games v Millwall, cardiff, Sheffield Wednesday and even Ipswich you would see just how correct I am.

yes you won Ipswich but that wasn't down to how good you were it was how Ipswich missed a lot of chances. Never in the game v Millwall, completely out of the game v Cardiff and Leeds didn't even turn up v Sheffield Wednesday lol new manager, new players yet still your club is a laughing stock.

13.) 03 Oct 2017 17:07:58
I totally agree with you Odea odea, it must be easy for you to sit in the top half of The Prem and slag our team, players and Supporters off, not really fair though is it? We Leeds supporters no matter what, always come on here to post, we don’t go on any other sites to berate their team, yes you have a valid point on some players but I don’t agree about TC and we have a good owner, some players might turn good some may not, but because of your total ignorance you think your pointing things out to us that we don’t know, a lot of us weren’t happy about Felix as number 1 so what’s your point! We all knew Alioski had faults so what’s your point! We all knew that things might get bumpy so again what’s your point! We all knew that out of all the buys we made not all would come good so what’s your point! I think it’s time you went and played with your sticker book in the middle of the M1, we really don’t take any notice of you and hopefully the traffic on the M1 won’t! 😘MOT

14.) 03 Oct 2017 17:11:43
Odea odea supports Tottenham Hotspur Martyn, well that’s what he said last time unless it’s changed to one of the Mancs because they are top, who knows, I bet his parents are really proud of him! MOT

Thumbs up to that Whiteman12, I suppose he was always a put in a corner child or even made to sit on the naughty step for weeks!

18.) 03 Oct 2017 20:46:59
Spurs! That explains everything. The great pretenders. They may be prem league but will always be wanna bees. What ya going to do when Kane gets poached lmao

19.) 04 Oct 2017 09:33:16
Lol Kane would have left by now if he wanted to leave., it's not like he's not a wanted striker. spurs have been in the premiership for years now and usually the top half of the table, where are Leeds united?

jansson will leave next season once he realises what a shambles your team is, ayling will leave to play at a higher level and your sell Ronny and think your be making progress lol.

you have a gk who can't gk, a striker who lacks effort and you still have Pablo who offers nothing to Leeds yet you still persist on playing him. ayling, jansson, and Ronny are the only decent players at Leeds and that's partly because they show effort in 99% of games but are constantly let down by lazy players like lasogga, cooper, Phillips, and Pablo.

spurs have a few lazy useless players too like sissoko and lamela but unfortunately no one brought them last season but spurs are looking to sell them. Leeds seriously think your players are going places, but not a chance.

20.) 04 Oct 2017 11:06:56
Weird how you know everyone of and everything about our players. Perhaps you should watch the film Misery, it seems to be you down to a t.

21.) 04 Oct 2017 13:22:53
We both have one thing in common area. We will both be disappointed and at the end of the season but we already know that. We will be disappointed that we only finished 2nd and you because you'll do what you do every year and bottle it. Wonder how dedicated you'd be pal if you got relegated? Oh yea you'd probably be a gooner if that happened because you come across as a turn coat amongst many things. MOT

22.) 04 Oct 2017 21:30:06
I know a lot about football in general actually, it's my specialty subject ;) DW i'll keep you up to date with news on Leeds ;)

23.) 04 Oct 2017 21:32:24
Misery? I'm a very happy person ;) I love football I really do, but there is nothing more satisfying than putting fans in there place, which for you Leeds fans is always in the terrible league called the championship.

24.) 04 Oct 2017 21:54:41
Misery is about being obsessed. Funny how last time we played Spuds in the cup, we beat them. I'm guessing that was your first Spuds game and you're still upset about it?

25.) 05 Oct 2017 06:20:26
SG, don’t bother to waste your time mate, he is an absolute div he really is, he’s one of those small syndrome people who cause lots of trouble then run off, or like this site, he hides behind his false id’s, he doesn’t even go on Spurs banter site, if he does again it’s under another alias! I’ve never ever come across such a little twit in all my life, he is completely ignorant so I think the best we can all do on here is stop answering his posts! Let’s all be in agreement that we we all just stop feeding his little ego! This way he might just get bored and go back to playing with his Uncle! MOT

26.) 05 Oct 2017 09:10:36
Speciality football and a spurs fan? ! I think not.

27.) 06 Oct 2017 10:51:30
Tottenham bottle it? Your all northern softies that's why your Leeds fans lol wannabe hard men but actually jelly babies lol. yes my specialty is football and yes I'm a spurs fan. your a Leeds fan pal what do you know about football?

Whilst Tottenham haven't won the league title they have come closer than Leeds have ever done. A challenge to Tottenham is playing teams like Chelsea and city whilst a challenge to Leeds is playing teams like Millwall or Cardiff lol.

Interesting that MB is keen to retain Harrison but is also looking to get more wingers. Harrison isn't a natural pacy winger who can run past people so does MB see a more central role for him? Does he think he can replace Saiz I wonder? He's certainly got a better all round game ethic than Saiz - gets back to defend etc. - but we definitely miss Saiz technical nous. I think Pablo serves us better out wide - at least he can accurately cross the ball for starters. Tyler Roberts is interesting because he definitely improved over the season and he was very impressive v Millwall and Aston Villa at Elland Road. Where does MB see his best position? Again, he's not a natural winger for me but he can certainly pick out a pass - and he's a potential number 8 for me too. He diesn't get flustered or react to being knocked about either.

Manston Park

1.) 01 Jul 2019 06:49:38
I think people really underestimate Harrison and certainly underestimate how much Bielsa rates him. Real workhorse up and down the flanks but versatile as you say. I think he got 2 yellows in a season where he played a lot, so good temperament. Injured once from memory. A real asset to the squad and has the challenge to improve this year and show more consistency. He was obviously keen to come back and be part of Leeds again and that’s good about Bielsa and Leeds, He wants to wear the shirt so let’s get behind him. Got a feeling that he will have a good year!

2.) 01 Jul 2019 11:21:20
I still believe that he is technically one of the best players in the squad but would be suited to the role Klich plays except that Klich offers a greater goal threat. Forshaw is also made of glass and therefore injuries are inevitable. I would personally like to see a bit more physicality in the midfield.

All gone very quiet with this investment talk. Some have suggested that there is genuine interest but that Radz is not willing to sell as a whole or a stake because he believes he is on the verge of taking us up with what he has. If that is the case, unless he is prepared to borrow to spend or invest whatever money he has, that's a worrying position to take in my opinion. How can he improve the squad in the few key areas without selling players first if there is no money to spend? We have some great Under 23's but 3 or 4 additional seasoned performers are required.

Manston Park

1.) 27 May 2019 11:03:12
MP It's called greed and not putting people of Leeds first. That said, the man has the right to hold on to his shares and see what he can produce next season. His rhetoric about the transfer market doesn't bode well though. You'd think if price was right, he'd sell. Next season shall be difficult and competitive.

2.) 27 May 2019 12:18:26
Cards will be held close to his chest. It has been reported that conversations have been had for a number of months without it becoming public knowledge. George is correct, greed will play a part, as Radz believes that with Bielsa he has the golden ticket. Unfortunately for Radz, Bielsa will want investment guarantees before committing for another year. Bringing in Bielsa was probably a roll of the dice for Radz. If he is to continue then selling to buy will probably be his strategy.

3.) 27 May 2019 14:22:33
Radz is either very niaive, arrogant, or totally ignorant about football if he does believe he can steer us back to the prem on a shoestring.

I thought Bielsa is alleged to have informed Radz he has gotten the best he can out of current squad and no room for improvement without moving some players out and bringing in better replacements.

Radz himself has stated several times he is keen to bring investment to the club.

Hopefully the Manager situation can be res9lved ASAP, my view is if MB decides he’s not staying it will be because club can’t match/ fund his transfer ambitions at this time.

It would be reassuring to know the club are concentrating on an already identified wanted list now and learning lessons from January’s farce.

4.) 27 May 2019 14:43:51
I’m honestly not sure it’s a greed! It’s a man who really believes he can take the club up and almost did it! If he sells he was only in it for the money, if he doesn’t sell, it must be greed. Not sure he can win!



26 May 2019 18:24:53
Casilla concerns me and I think he ought to go. He sent the jitters through the whole team for the rest of the match with that first Derby goal and it was a major factor in us losing. He came racing out in a similar fashion v Ipswich and Sheffield United to name just a couple of other occasions. I can't believe he hasn't done it before at other clubs and as our people allegedly study videos of players prior to buying, they must have seen that. At his age, I'm not sure he'll change and we know how one error or rush of blood can cost teams at this level.

Manston Park

1.) 26 May 2019 20:36:56
He never got a game for anyone else.

2.) 27 May 2019 10:20:45
Remember watching him play for us first time in U23s match against Newcastle. Thought he looked good and even got him to sign my shirt. Should have done it in invisible ink.



16 May 2019 22:39:38
Main thing is to retain Bielsa. Clearly an emotional man so I hope - and think - he's become attached to the club and the fans. My main worry is Radz. Does he have the money to spend? He hasn't shown it so far really - not buying players anyway - and that may influence MB's position. I think he's made it clear the squad needs adding to in the final third. They are going to have to spend to get the type of striker we desperately need. I saw Dwight Gayle mentioned. Someone like him would be perfect but they cost. Undoubtedly a good man but I think Cooper is a weak link and still makes mistakes at crucial moments - but we conceded less goals than Norwich so maybe the back line is ok, if PJ stays. If funds are limited they are needed for further upfield. A striker, a fast winger, a replacement for Saiz and a combative holding midfielder who can protect the more creative players. BPF back in goal - Casilla is clearly a liability - and then start introducing some of the U23's. It's half time in the project.

Manston Park

1.) 16 May 2019 23:30:26
Good post Manston, I hope we keep Bielsa, but not sure about Radz. I thought buying the ground back was great, but he has it in another Company name so whenever the he decides to charge it, the Club has to pay rent, so what has changed? As for transfers, since Wood was sold net / net we haven't spent anything. So I understand Bielsa needs reassurance before committing to at least another year.

2.) 17 May 2019 03:42:37
Lufc : that’s it nothing just the same as all the rest, has he enough money to fund what is needed now and in the future, not sure he has, as other would have us to believe. He seems to have one or two problems, but has raised 11 million how not sure again, will it be for investment in the club, on players who knows, nothing you hear from him you can trust, and that worry’s me, he didn’t know anything about our club, all he wanted was something he could buy to make money at a later date, he made one big mistake and it’s going to cost him and the other millions, will he learn from his mistakes, who knows wait and see.

3.) 17 May 2019 07:38:29
Are you ken Bates in disguise?

4.) 17 May 2019 10:17:14
Accepted Radz is a business man! But this year shows how you maximise returns on the business, big crowds, merchandising, sponsorship etc, get success on the pitch! Why would a businessman not want to do that again and one step more to achieve the greater riches of the PL. So it’s not about whether he wants to more about whether he can do and whether he agrees with you on how to do it! Fulham spent 100 million on securing relegation. Now they have to deal with the cost of that in the championship with players no one wants to buy for what they paid for them! Accept that he wants the same as us but might not agree on how to do it!

5.) 17 May 2019 09:57:25
Whitey More to the point, does Radz have the money in order to show he's learned from his mistakes? George answer? No. Plus, even more to the point, will he publicly admit he has made errors? George answer? No. There is therefore no hope, not while he's the main owner. He's recently diluted the stock for cash. Bad sign.

The performance against Derby was an absolute disgrace apart from Dallas and me boy Shack. Casilla was always a bad buy. He's allegedly goalkeeper not a fly sweeper but he doesn't know the English game, the high line, the pace and timing. Sell on free. Cooper just not good enough. Strip of captaincy and sell on free. Berardi. His tackles are so late if he was a pregnant woman he'd come on to his period in the last trimester. Sell on free, confiscate European passport. Bamford. I'd retain but with instruction that he plays reserve football and toughen up physically. He's a Championship quality sub and no more for now. He has class but something of an application problem. Pablo. Needs reassessing in the summer. Temporary tiredness or have his legs gone? I hope and believe the former.

As for Bub, I think he's off because he wants a war chest and independent of selling players to buy. Fat chance! Want him to stay but I see another Monk type impasse arising. This should leave way free for Corberan to accept promotion to main job but I'd rather Bub give us another year. I just don't think Radz has the £30m needed. We need goalkeeper, central defender, winger and 2 strikers. BPF and a returning Pearce, Coyle, O'Connor and Wilks will help but unless we get these extra 5 positional players in we won't be good enough, not even for play-off tilt.

As for the post-mortem, credit to Notts, Hess and Manston for writing so intelligently. Main problem has been Bub intransigence to drop out of form players. Cost us in George opinion approximately 10 points over the season. Another case in point is we supposedly play better against the better teams but bottle it when matters. That's fault of management combined especially Radz who I think has ripped the soul and hardness out of LUFC. I'm now where Wex was albeit prematurely last August. Spend Radz or FORK OFF!

Agreed Clueless. I started writing similar earlier but then stopped for some reason.
Whatever the truth of this ‘report’ I wouldn’t want Hourihane. Aside from his antics in that last match at ER, he isn’t good enough for us and neither is Bree. Henri Lansbury is a good player - and always seems to score against us - but there’s something not right there as every team seems to use him as a sub - attitude, fitness, who knows. On a separate note, MB is clearly not giving up on someone - Kent, Wilson, or some other Liverpool youngster? - or some emerging talent at Bradford? - and I’d rather he was doing that than promenading on tour the other side of the world. Great country (fact) and great commercial opportunities no doubt - but MB clearly wants to be preparing over here.

Going to back to the conversation the other day - we didn’t replace Saiz ability to unlock stubborn defences with one killer pass. That’s perhaps when the mental fatigue comes in - heads drop. Cooper played beyond his ability last year - thanks to MB it seems - and is still prone to mistakes at crucial times and Pontus is a prima donna but the defence still conceded less goals than Norwich. We always have the possession we just lost the ability to convert it into goals. If Casilla stopped the stupid rushing out he’s a better goalie than BPF - I just don’t think he will at his age. We lost that bit of quality to say to teams you can stonewall all day but we’ll eventually unlock you. And by the way - Lampard did not tactically outwit Bielsa in the 2nd leg. We comprehensively outplayed Derby for 3.5 matches last season but then imploded due to stupidity in the match that mattered and the flair wasn’t in the team to recover from that in that match. If they are able to replace Saiz, they then need someone to protect that flair and tetchy personality. It doesn't need to be crass fouls, just someone with the presence to read the opposition their fortune and be able to tackle hard without going in with studs raised like our favourite Swiss.

Leeds1970 - agreed Saiz got targeted but that was because of the threat he posed. His was the flair that hasn’t yet been replaced. The killer final pass. Note how Klich goals dried up after he left and it also affected Pablo in my view, who serves us better on the wing because of his ability to cross the ball. Who truly knows why Saiz went but he should have been protected on the pitch whilst he was here. If Vinny Jones had been playing behind him some of those who constantly elbowed him in the ribs or tapped his ankles would have thought twice. We need that kind of presence again to protect our flair players.

Agreed. They won 10 on the trot and we still won 5 more games than them over the season. We need a little bit more and we will make top two. Radz - you got to get that bit of quality in.
