Former Birmingham City player Curtis Woodhouse predicts Leeds will finish no higher than tenth as it doesn't matter how many players we sign as we don't have Gary Monk anymore!

WTF obviously he didn't see the last quarter of our season or the games where we didn't have a plan B! Like many Leeds fans I'm grateful to Monk for making it an interesting season and for his input but I'm not the only one who wasn't disappointed at him leaving!

Why do so many ex players who mean zero to Leeds get so knowledgeable about us? And then there are ex Leeds players or Managers who after they leave think they know what we need?

Well i have to say what a pity they didn't have all the answers when they were a player or a Manager of Leeds then maybe we wouldn't be in the Championship eh! Why do they have all the answers for success after they get the sack? Baffles me, tenth place, before a ball has been kicked. Maybe he should predict the Lottery if he's that good! MOT

Hear hear

Stick to boxing woodhouse, I for one don't expect us to be winning the league this season, but I do think we can be in the mix up. Radz is no fool we are building something here at Leeds. Season after season we have not had much to shout about but things are a changing. MOT.


3.) 16 Jul 2017 10:22:15
Well ya got that one off ya chest pal. Hope you feel better for your rant. But well said by the way.


4.) 16 Jul 2017 11:49:37
The good thing about us is that we don't know, nothing is proven. We have brid, anita, jansson, green, wood, and ayling who for me are all established championship players. We have quality in saiz, alioski, sacko (debatable) , wiedewald, vieira, and generally, potential in all areas. We have a manager who is used to winning, but unproven, he may well do a renieri and prove that the league makes little difference to his tactics and that he plays his own way and that wins him games, he's proven that at 2 different teams. There are teams this season like villa who are building on foundations of championship quality, whereas we have unproven talent within, it's a risk but I like the balls people are willing to show to prove that a risk is rewarding. Genuinely can see alioski being player of the season, very similar to knockaert, could be a huge threat.


5.) 16 Jul 2017 12:27:05
Spot on samowhite5, only time will tell but at least we have the potential with the player's we are getting in. Just need more quality added to back up our defence. Can see player's like roofe and viera kicking on this season, given the chance.


6.) 16 Jul 2017 15:43:30
Good post that is, Samo.


7.) 16 Jul 2017 22:30:38
Cheers gents. Over facilitating is better than no plan B if you ask me. If he is to play a 4-2-3-1 like he has done in friendlies, TC has so many options in midfield now as we're all aware, I think there are about 12 potential midfielders in austria. 3 keepers, we all know we're light at the back but flint and voyer are 2 to keep an eye on. Potentially £4m for flint. And saiz, douk, alioski, antonsson or roofe could all replace wood at some stage if necessary. We only really had douk as an alternative last year, arguably Roofe but he was more crucial on the right IMO. Sacko, Wood, Alioski as a front 3 in a 4-3-3 could be lethal. Excited for the friendly tomorrow to see if the new lads start.


 

 

15 Jul 2017 20:54:44
Rumour is that Marco Silvestri plus cash for Adam Flint from Bristol City. Newsnow report City are looking for a keeper so Leeds looking for a swap plus £2M! I think that would be a good deal. MOT

Mikewoody67

1.) 15 Jul 2017 21:34:41
Totally agree. Defence wins promotion


2.) 16 Jul 2017 10:06:06
TC has already stated that the defence is a priority now so we know he is not settling for what we have and will strengthen before the window shuts. Hope we don't let O'Kane go as he is a good honest pro.


3.) 16 Jul 2017 10:23:43
Think silvestri is ok and will learn much off green but also think hrs destined to be a bench warmer while ever he is here.


 

 

13 Jul 2017 19:04:49
We are linked with signing this young 18 year old striker from Chelsea on loan! I don't know a lot about him but what about going for Daryl Murphy as he wants out of Newcastle! Just a thought and while I'm on I really don't see any real problem if we let Pablo Hernandez leave for Maccabi, I think apart from the odd game he was not that influential so for me let him go! Any thoughts guys? MOT

Mikewoody67

1.) 13 Jul 2017 21:56:53
I say let him go


2.) 13 Jul 2017 23:57:37
Yep. Very hit and miss last year. We need to get rid of 4-5 i reckon


3.) 14 Jul 2017 00:43:29
Too hot and more cold. Saiz will fill the number 10 slot


 

 

10 Jul 2017 13:01:41
Saiz on his way to Elland Road, 26yr old signing for £3M. It's all taking shape and more signings to come! MOT

Mikewoody67

1.) 10 Jul 2017 14:20:27
Not 3 million? No way, ithought we only spent 500k max


2.) 10 Jul 2017 15:06:14
Martyn, it was around £3mill.


3.) 10 Jul 2017 15:19:55
He's mocking Whiteman's previous post Delboy lol


4.) 10 Jul 2017 16:50:42
Bull.


5.) 10 Jul 2017 19:20:46
If we have just paid 3m and half must go to his previous club have we just bought a 1.5m footballer?


6.) 10 Jul 2017 12:30:13
Lol 3m on a player who had 1 good season and he's 26 very wise Leeds very wise lol abit like 2m for Hadi sacko both terrible players who like sacko showed last season won't get Leeds anywhere.


7.) 10 Jul 2017 12:40:26
LOL Martyn. Hope MW67 sees funny side. Whitey, tell the Wednesday board of directors not to pay you for last week!


8.) 10 Jul 2017 12:42:21
It's £3M in instalments mate, it's £250,000 a year for twelve years, and Radz has had to get a pay day loan and a guarantor loan to pay it, Swadlad is his guarantor! 😂 also if we want anyone else Martyn they have to be on a free with their wages paid with a grant from The National Lottery! Oh well Division one next season just like Swadlad said, we are so stupid not to of listened eh mate! 🤣


9.) 11 Jul 2017 00:20:00
I heard he funded the preseason tour with a log book loan! Delboy if you had been reading previous post you would have known it was a dig at whiteman12 or Swadlad or welshwhite or which ever alias he's under today, welcome back Swadlad by the way. Didn't expect you on here so soon pal thought you'd have still been polishing monkeys jewels!


10.) 11 Jul 2017 11:04:02
Still facts stand, Hadi sacko 2 goals worth 2 mill yeah right lol and samu saiz 1 good season for a terrible team in a terrible league worth 3 mill lmao your being robbed right in front of your eyes :)


11.) 11 Jul 2017 11:31:26
"Terrible team in a terrible league" based on what? Several La Liga teams wanted him. If you think the Championship is an outstanding league, you clearly didn't watch the playoffs.


12.) 11 Jul 2017 11:43:07
Swad is that an admission that you're not a Leeds fan? You put 'your being robbed' not 'we're being robbed'.


13.) 11 Jul 2017 13:52:54
Leeds are being robbed not me or you we are just fans for god sake. The championship is a bad league too but to pay 3 mill for a 1 season wonder really shows how desperate Leeds are at the minute.


14.) 12 Jul 2017 01:45:15
He's finally given himself up. Not too bright eh fluffer boy.


 

 

07 Jul 2017 21:43:35
Well I would like to say that with all the signings so far we should of signed better players worth £20 Million plus cause we are never going to get out of this league with crap we have got!

Come on Radz start spending some proper money, forget buying the ground and paying off are debts! Never mind building for the future! For gods sake Radz will you please give Peter a ring and seek his advice on how to spend! . OMG We don't want all that back Whiteman12 so come on mate!

I am so happy at our signings, I'm delirious about our new owner and time will tell how TC and the team get on, we might be rubbish, it might not work but we will be there through ups and downs mate and we will wait for next season and be optimistic again and again and one day we will be back in the Prem and if we do it properly we will be back to stay and not just a one season wonder like Boro!

Radz and our very professional back room staff must see something in these new signings and it's Radz and his money so in Radz we trust and always will while he has Leeds in his heart! MOT

Mikewoody67

1.) 08 Jul 2017 01:58:28
Damn it Mike I was just going to say let's get some really over rated crap like grimes and pay 20 mill for him and pay him 70k a week just like Seth Johnson. Ah them was the days


2.) 08 Jul 2017 11:00:01
You have some patience Martyn, I was about to say - mike, you blockhead.
Should be ok with ed the sensor, I was gentle.

{Ed033's Note - Thanks for being gentle Ausman1 😋.


3.) 08 Jul 2017 12:12:01
Why on earth am I a blockhead Ausman? What have I said to upset you mate? Martyn got it! MOT


4.) 08 Jul 2017 14:39:49
Omg mike lol. so funny. Ed edited what i really thought. To be kind. Blockhead is as good as it gets mate or not mate.


5.) 08 Jul 2017 20:13:38
I'm still non the wiser to your post Ausman!, my post was a direct response to Whitemans post which is on the banter site, he posted how we haven't made any class signings and I was being sarcastic and with my real thoughts posted in the next paragraph! Baffled! MOT


6.) 09 Jul 2017 06:00:26
Apologies then. Thought the second paragraph was sarcasm. Read it wrong.


7.) 09 Jul 2017 17:20:26
No worries Ausman and I see Whiteman12 posting rubbish talk on the banter site now! I'm baffled with his posts! MOT

Has anyone else seen the totally rediculous rumour about McBadgekisser! He's not gone on tour with Villa (Problem with his gate again more than likely) so they are saying biggest waste of £12M by any club but what about the prospect of him back at Elland Road! That's a big fat no from me! what's your thoughts fellow Leeds fans? MOT

Mikewoody67

1.) 23 Jul 2017 13:20:08
I've always seen him in the number 10 role, not a striker, if we decided on him as our striker he'd need to prove that he's still got it, but I think he's more of a creative player, and we already have a few of them


2.) 24 Jul 2017 06:56:42
Don't need him, would be nice as an option, but not a priority


3.) 24 Jul 2017 16:44:54
No way Jose. And no I don't mean the pride of Devon manager


 

 

22 Jul 2017 21:27:34
Evening all, for my sins I live in Rochdale, a couple of miles from Grotlands so I walked down to watch them play Middlesbrough and I swear to God it was like watching Leeds play last season, not just saying this as Monkey boy there but they were playing as we did the later part of last season, I know it was only a friendly and not to read much into it but they were aimless, Assombalonga played and he looked bored and the team were outplayed by a mediocre Rochdale team who won 2-0. The comparisons between the movement, the basics and when they went 1-0 down were in common with Monks management with us. Like I say maybe don't read to much but if I was a Boro fan I would worried! MOT

Mikewoody67

1.) 23 Jul 2017 00:22:44
Did you spot Swad and Welshwhite in the crowd? 😜


2.) 23 Jul 2017 01:15:58
I did see two lads leaving very early! Might of been them! I was stood in the Sandy Lane end with the home supporters, it's been years since I stood and watched a match as we are always seated! Rochdale didn't have a full strength team on show but outplayed Boro. I don't know if you went to our late pre-season and early Championship games last season SG90 but we were very disjointed with not a lot of flow to our game well, this is what Monks team was like yesterday. MOT


3.) 23 Jul 2017 11:22:04
Marvellous!


4.) 23 Jul 2017 12:32:31
It wasn't marvellous the last I was a Grotlands George! We got beat 2-0! OMG that was horrific, I had to endure months and months of dale jokes about beating us! We packed their away stand that day but it was a very very poor performance! Seems like light years away now! MOT.


 

 

18 Jul 2017 15:29:32
Pennington it is then! Definitely looked like Dawson but it's just been confirmed as the young Everton lad, on loan. Good signing it's just the on loan bit that I don't like. MOT

Mikewoody67

1.) 18 Jul 2017 16:42:20
Hope it is only the start, need more CB cover. Loan is Ok if the right player to shore up our defence.


2.) 18 Jul 2017 17:35:50
Bartley did ok for us last year on loan.


 

 

18 Jul 2017 14:44:59
Tell you what folks we have missed a trick there by not signing Ollie Watkins from Exeter, he has signed for Brentford for £1.8M. He is a good striker, performs week in week out, he has good pace and could be the next Vardy! Just a thought though and in no way does it mean I am unhappy with our transfers so far. Can't wait for the season to start as by god it's dragging, Sky Sports keep showing the date for our first game live in the right column and I swear it's not getting any closer! MOT

Mikewoody67

1.) 18 Jul 2017 15:19:38
Yes it's getting closer that's how dates usually go -_-.


2.) 18 Jul 2017 15:39:27
And how do your dates usually go Swadlad? Not much I reckon! Shouldn't you been on the We all love Boro site? Enjoying your overpriced striker signing! MOT


3.) 18 Jul 2017 17:21:51
Watkins may be good Mike but he may also struggle in his first season like Roofe did with us. Step up to Championship from League 2 is a big step up. Hopefully Roofe will realise his potential this season


4.) 18 Jul 2017 17:36:59
Yes your right NottsWhite, I didn't look at it that way but that's what these sites are for! Definately true what you say though. What about this picture of our potential new signing, have you seen it? Well I have a numerous amount of times and I would swear it's Michael Dawson and my office has many different supporters in it including a poor old Barnsley fan, 3 Wendies, 2 Utd, 1 Chelsea fan who got lost and ended up here and of course 6 Leeds fans! The thing is they all agree it looks like Dawson, although to be fair we didn't ask the Chelsea fan, he is not included in anything, even on Christmas parties he has his own! 🤣🤣🤣 MOT


5.) 18 Jul 2017 17:37:46
I love summer so i don't want it to be over, but i hate there being no footie so I'm desperate for the new season. its a lose-lose situation.


6.) 18 Jul 2017 23:44:33
Mike, why as a fan would you be concerned about the price of players? Middlesbrough with Brit and braithwaite now have the best strike force in the league by miles and your slagging Middlesbrough off for over spending on them?


7.) 19 Jul 2017 00:17:58
First of all Swadlad, why on earth do you state that Middlesbrough have the best strike force by miles? Is it because they were both bought for stupid overpriced money or is it because they have played together at Middlesbrough last season? Oh wait a minute they haven't played together before have they! Yes that's right Braithwaite who? Oh and hang on who was top goal scorer in The Championship? I believe that was Chris Wood who played for Leeds United and still does! So look back at your post and think again! And while your looking go through all my other posts and look for where I have slagged Middlesbrough off! I think you will find that my only gripe is with your senseless, negative and stupid posts! Your posts have no substance, no meaning and make no sense! You never have anything practical to say, you never want to connect with good posts and your always looking to rub people up the wrong way with such negative posts! We all know our club and its failings but you would have to be an idiot if you can't see how much our club is changing for the better in all departments, we as supporters are not stupid just because we dream a little of being successful and if another season goes by and nothing happens we will dream away for next season! This is my last post to you in answer to anymore of your pointless posts! MOT


8.) 19 Jul 2017 10:41:55
If they have the best strikefore then they must have the best strikers? Bumawonga scored 15ish last season Messi wood got double son


 

 

12 Jul 2017 23:30:08
Leeds are definitely a lot busier in the transfer market than other Championship teams! I know it's still early but you look at QPR today have signed Chay Tilt from West Brom on a contract until January! And not really much else, Middlesbrough quiet and so are many others! For once we are headlining, what a change that is eh, sit up and take notice the other 23! MOT

Mikewoody67

1.) 13 Jul 2017 05:08:57
As much as I'm happy we are spending big I just hope were not signing too many foreign players? Some good experienced British ones would be nice too. Will have United nations flag raised above ER at this rate


2.) 13 Jul 2017 07:11:51
It depends really. Are our newbees going to turn out gems or benchwarmers? Realistically if they all play well we have enough now cause anita and ayling can play centre back and roofe cabuna can play up front with wood. Think its just shelling time now.


3.) 13 Jul 2017 07:55:07
With so many new signings (I'm not complaining! ) Will there be the usual excuse of. "the team need time to gel". when we lose the first 5 games! Hopefully not. Perhaps I'm just on my man period


4.) 13 Jul 2017 08:22:57
I kind of agree with you Martyn. Not always full of confidence in foreign players on a cold Tuesday night, p**sing it down with rain at a team that wants to kick lumps out of you. However, we have enough within the current squad to go with the new signings. Anita, is very experienced in the English leagues, I think Roofe will get better and better, Dallas is apparently having a very good pre-season, added to the hard men Birdcage, Jansson and Hong Kong Phooey (Berardi) , I think we'll have enough to tough it out with any team. Big day today, apparently Saiz and Aiioski signing. £2-3m centre half now and I'd be more than happy. MM


5.) 13 Jul 2017 08:27:58
Back from a weekend away with swad? Southern
We will gel. We may not win. But no gelly excuses.


6.) 13 Jul 2017 10:55:23
If they get us up Martyn they can have whatever flag they want up there! Lol. I know what you mean though, with all the signings I have actually forgot that we have Roofe, Birdcage, Sacko, Ronaldo, Pontus and all the rest, we have a good squad now but like you I would like to see a couple of good English signings which would just equal it out a bit. Good though isn't it Martyn, looking forward to what will be his starting eleven. I bet team meetings will be like that old programme Mind Your Language! Lol. MOT


7.) 13 Jul 2017 11:17:23
i agree it is hard with forgien players but look at radebe, yeboha ect we only need two to be gem and we will be laughing even if few flop as they might, antia is proven, just one cb and left back and it will be perfect, plus ground as well, i can't remember a more positive pre-season even if wood goes which i hope he dont


8.) 13 Jul 2017 13:53:09
better 'mind your language' than 'love thy neighbour' Mike.


9.) 13 Jul 2017 13:56:50
I think Radz has learned from Huddersfield last season. they did their business early and it worked out for them because they hit the ground running and were flying early in the season while the rest of the league were still pulling their pants up. hopefully the same can be true of us and if we do all our 'in' business by the 23rd of this month as indicated then we have time for TC to work with all of the team and get them fit rather than getting players joining 3 weeks into the season who still need to build up their fitness. this way makes sense for me but expect the signings to stop after next week.


10.) 13 Jul 2017 14:22:33
The defensive signings are the critical ones now. very interested to see who comes in next.

Swadlad if all our signings are not to your liking and our team is rubbish why don't you write to Radz and tell him to save his money and employ you instead of the others and you will make us into a Premiership team! You are obviously the man to take us forward and provide all of our success starved fans with a team of world beaters who can win us lots of silverware. When you have done all that then we just might take your posts a little more seriously! 🤡
