Seems we missed out on Bartley and now missed on Egan from Brentford . I'm going to make a bold statement . bielsa will walk before season kicks off


1.) 13 Jul 2018 19:18:13
Apparently Vydra in talks with Stoke now after Newcastle not wanting to part company with Gayle to Stoke. Looks like we will have to settle for Jerry the Berry

2.) 13 Jul 2018 22:58:41
All well and good but nobody knows who Bub actually wants in, unless you believe everything Phil Hay says

3.) 14 Jul 2018 00:29:29
Nobody by his actions AL, 1st pre season friendly in a few days and one player in on loan. That's not the dream radz and co sold us. Even if I was up to it I would boycott preseason games to send a firm message to radz.



06 Jul 2018 23:46:26
Think bielsa said he can improve the existing players . reading between the lines I doubt many players will be coming in . Although i like who we have gotten rid of


1.) 07 Jul 2018 17:47:52
Bet he won't improve O'Lame

2.) 07 Jul 2018 18:29:43
That doesn't worry me unduly, in fact I think I am excited with the thought of some of our young guns being stamped with the Bielsa style and being released onto the Championship with no fear next season.

3.) 07 Jul 2018 18:42:56

4.) 07 Jul 2018 21:53:57
O'Lame been told not to report back

5.) 08 Jul 2018 13:06:32
I'm with you there Leodis. I still think we will see a few incomings, but just the appointment of a top coach who can develop some of our quality players and youth is exciting.

6.) 09 Jul 2018 20:13:38
Not been here for a long time, I am happy to wait and see what Bielsa does with our existing players before we waste millions on players that other teams obviously don't need or want?



17 Mar 2018 22:42:10
Funny Anita was by all accounts awesome for Newcastle in there promotion season but he was playing in CM ? We haven't looked good in centre mid maybe stick him along side foreshaw. We probably need to look at something different because this system clearly isn't working


1.) 18 Mar 2018 09:06:37
He played right back for Rafa when they were promoted.

2.) 18 Mar 2018 15:11:19
He is rubbish. The absolute last player with sacko on team sheet. Appalling attenpt at a footballer.



12 Feb 2018 20:42:47
I think we should employ the old Christmas tree formation introduced by Terry Venables to England once upon a time 4-3-2-1 3 centre mids with 2 play makers behind lassoga Weidweld Berardi Cooper Jansson De bock Phillips Viera Foreshaw Saiz Hernandez Lassoga.


1.) 12 Feb 2018 20:59:46
Sounds like a cunning plan Mighty.

2.) 13 Feb 2018 07:21:10
Id drop hernandez to a deeper cm role, and play ekuban or roberts in his place in behind lasogga, just gives us more pace up top and hernandez is a better cm than phillips anyway

3.) 13 Feb 2018 10:13:16
Anything terry Venables came up with should be dismissed out of hand immediately Looking at that formation it smacks of " no width " Lassie needs crosses. they've been rare . So saiz and hernadez will have to go wide They're easier to deal with out there Not sure that works best for us No crosses means ekuban for lassie as he moves the opposition back 4 about making room for saiz . who needs freedom to roam and pop up in the pockets or behind full backs. Plus he needs to pull the trigger more. you need 3/ 4 behind him as he's not going to defend much So it's saiz or hernandez, playing both is a luxury I'd like to see Philips foreshaw and viera given a go. Just to protect that back four Win the midfield, win the game Dallas in place of alioski who needs that inner ear issue looking at & we really, really need to get on the front foot and dominate Love hecky

4.) 13 Feb 2018 10:15:34
I'd be happy with that. If Lasogga wasn't working you could swap him out for Ekuban and you've got Dallas in the wings, so to speak, to sub in at almost any position.

5.) 13 Feb 2018 13:53:19
Inner ear - classic.

6.) 13 Feb 2018 18:02:59
I'd play 3 at the back and 2 wing backs Dallas aloski so more of a 3,4,2,1
Drop Phillips for Pennington

7.) 14 Feb 2018 21:49:57
When all are available Hecky has such a brilliant problem of who to drop. Thankfully for him some are making that decision a little easier.



11 Feb 2018 01:19:53
Like to see ekuban and Lassoga play as two strikers but I've looked at team and I've looked at every formation known to man and I just don't think we can play 4-4-2. We have to in my opinion have saiz and hernandez in the team and we can't do that with 4-4-2. Think today we got caught cold. And silly individual error by okane (again) cost us.


1.) 11 Feb 2018 22:08:53
Tell that to George will ya Mighty. He seems to think we can leave out Saiz and Hernandez. There is no way we can play two strikers with them in the team, or even one of them for that matter. Imagine two strikers with Saiz and Hernandez behind them, the midfield would be totally over run.

2.) 12 Feb 2018 01:52:25
Way I would do it and I know it ain't perfect but Alioski irritates me as does Okane so they are both out. Wied in goal, Bera rb, DeB lb, Pontus and Penny complete back 4. RV and Forshaw middle, Dallas and Hernandez wings with instructions and license given to Hern to come inside and bit of freedom, Lassy and Ekuban.

Eku good hold up play, Lassy can finish. Main player off bench Saiz. I know this controversial because Saiz our best player but I believe you must be loyal to formation and structure first. Fact is Wood no longer plays for us (excellent lone forward at this level whereas Lassy need help and we ought to be playing to his strengths because he can finish) and we need a goal threat while retaining balance and shape and transition between attack and defence.

Saiz can come on last half hour and replace potentially 6 players without causing imbalance. I'm not saying Saiz is carp. I know he our best player but team more important. That's how I'd do it. George out.

3.) 12 Feb 2018 03:07:06
Well put again George and I can see where you’re coming from. Not sure on leaving Saiz out.

4.) 12 Feb 2018 09:11:23
Saiz is a striker. he plays in the gap

5.) 12 Feb 2018 09:54:53
Agree but would play Saiz and Ekuban up front and use Lass as sub

6.) 12 Feb 2018 10:26:44
Thanks Corky. You can go like for like and swap out Hern for Saiz. Roberts will come into things too. You right though. Hern or Saiz not both. Siamese twins luxury ill afforded. I just feel at this level players aren't good enough to execute a 4-2-3-1. Promotes too many cooks and gaps for opponents to capitalize on and in key areas. 4-4-2 simpler and we can get on scoresheet a lot easier. A basic tenet of the game is when you concede heads of the opposition go down and depression sets in. Lassy can cause that depression if only given the service.

Showing interest in some other lame striker from some lame Turkish team . What's the point . I hope bielsa sees something in the squad we already have that we can't see and gets the best out of them because doesn't look like we are getting anyone decent




15 Jul 2018 10:16:09
I quippped yesterday bielsa would walk before season starts due to lack of transfer activity . well he did quit lazio for same reason




15 Jul 2018 10:14:24
25 days of transfer window to go. I genuinely have been hoodwinked I feel . My understanding is bielsa is very intense and studies everything and what's to get everything spot on so thought we would be clever and get our main targets in early so he had maximum time to work with squad before season starts


1.) 15 Jul 2018 16:14:57
You feel hoodwinked because Leeds haven't delivered on your expectations? Think hoodwinked isn't the right term, I think disappointed is. I agree with your disappointment, but I'm thinking still 25 days to go and Radz has splashed out on a top manager to let him fail, Andrea is a smart business guy, makes no sense right now for him not to give Bielsa the tools he wants. Patience is a virtue, if we sign nobody, the squad isn't good enough and there's a **** plan B then I'll be slagging them off, now is way too premature and hoodwinked is way too powerful of a phrase IMO!

2.) 15 Jul 2018 16:49:44
Totally Oleary. business is not yet done.

3.) 15 Jul 2018 18:13:25
A last minute supermarket sweep is the straw I am finally clutching.

4.) 15 Jul 2018 19:13:55
Let Bubba fail then appoint heckingknob 2.0 and try brainwash everybody that having a top class world beater of a manager isn't the answer and might as well save a few quid on a muppet

5.) 15 Jul 2018 19:44:15
Martyn r u ok? Don't know where to begin!

6.) 15 Jul 2018 23:24:45
Radz plan (for the futre)



13 Jul 2018 15:18:23
So no Hernandez no vydra no Bartley no Egan no Hugill and no hope . however Jerry Mbakogu looks likely . just what we want another Italian seria b player




12 Jul 2018 08:38:40
Kodja and Hugill would be a decent snuff start but I say keep roofe as well . Can't really let him go and with Tyler Roberts there also we would have 4 decent forwards

Every flipping transfer we ever do takes for ever then ends up not happening except the ones the just come out of nowhere that the papers have never even mentioned . Heck of a lot of work to do, for me, de bock, Ekuban, cibiki, oKane, sako, klitsh all need to be gone

7 goals in 18 league games in league 1 ? Not sure it warrants a great season bud but I think we should give him another crack at it next season

Ideguchi can't get a look in with a team bottom of Spanish second division. Doubt he will be any good We definitely need anothER CB and 2 wingers. Keep dallas and alioski but 2 more wingers. Sako can go. Rubbish. Wr will need a striker because lassoga will go. Grot and cibiki not good enuff ekuban and Roberts have got potential but er need a proven scorer to come in and start

Yeah without a doubt wingers are needed . Sako just isn’t cutting it, roofe can play left side but the whole squad to me isn’t balanced . we lack pace throughout the squad as well . be interesting to see if Tyler Roberts plays, and where he can play .

07 May 2018 19:27:52
I agree, honestly I think I’m one of only ones who didn’t see the point in sacking him then to replace with someone like hecky ? Made no sense . we had a bit of. As luck with key players suspended, Roberts getting injured and ayling getting injured and I think the bad run we had comincided with that, but he showed he had the ability to turn bad runs around and we showed we could beat good teams with him in charge . his points saved us from probable relegation this season . I fear next season the way things are

06 May 2018 16:44:22
Yeah some positives, least we have a keeper for next season as well, I’d like to see us line up with a midfield 3 foreshaw alongside phillips and Viera or another we may Bring in . Roofe has been decent enuff but over the season alioski and saiz have failed to deliver . Hernandez has been good but overall we have lacked a good striker and lacked pace really and I’m certainly concerned about hecky next season.

Yes of course he is . he was a permanent transfer wasn’t he, I thought he was only there on loan but to me we need players of that type really
