Rumours that Leeds bringing in Vydra, another striker (either Hernandez or Jerry) , a goalkeeper (Blackman) , a centre back (Bartley or more likely Egan from Brentford) and a left back ( either Bryan or Garbutt)

NottsWhite

1.) 01 Jul 2018 13:47:14
Three Bs for me please

With the lack of defensive cover, what formation do you think Hecky to start with on Saturday ? Going to throw a curve ball and suggests he starts with 3-5-2. Pennington, De Bock and someone from U23s. Dallas left wing back, either Anita or Alioski right wing back. Hernandez with Forshaw and Phillips/Viera in middle and Lassoga and Roberts up front. Pennington seems more comfortable in a three and if an U23 is introduced at the back it might take the pressure off being in a three

NottsWhite

1.) 06 Feb 2018 16:21:13
Low on centre backs so you want to start with three of them?


2.) 06 Feb 2018 18:45:52
Felix, Anita, Pennington, DeBock, Dallas, Viera, Forshaw, Phillips
Hernandez, Roofe, Alioski Subs: Roberts, Cibicki, Lasogga, Sacko, Peacock, ? Two of the forwards would need to make it 5 in midfield to win the ball back. Felix should just boot it long as his passing is crap. Easy on paper!


3.) 07 Feb 2018 08:12:03
442 Notts. Time to get back to basics.

Rumour that Klich is fly into Leeds for talks

NottsWhite

1.) 23 Jun 2017 12:44:23
He signed this morning


 

 

28 May 2017 10:33:43
Rumour that we are about to sign Sacko for €2m. Does anyone else think that it is a bit pricey ?

NottsWhite

1.) 28 May 2017 12:17:46
Hope not. Way to pricey. Not good enough? Anyway. Whose making that decision. I would expect owner to sit down with new manager and director of football and make a joint dec on who stays and goes. Not make the dec on hos own.


2.) 28 May 2017 12:47:06
Think it's a good deal. A lot of potential is there, if we can harness it right. He needs to be allowed to attack, Monk's defensive tactics held him back, and I think he can easily hit 10 goals. Offers far more than Dallas, who is vastly overrated by some fans.


3.) 28 May 2017 13:06:36
Cheap imo, with the money flying around lately. Sacko can improve.


4.) 28 May 2017 14:27:16
Bargain


5.) 28 May 2017 15:42:23
Sadly I agree Vinny, the money trickling down from the prem has pushed player values up so £1.7m really isn't a lot in the current market. The thing is I think its an over spend based on last season but if he can add 4 goals and 4 assists next term, which is only 1 of each every 11 games or so, he suddenly looks a real bargain. As for the decision Aus my guess is because we had an agreed price that was set to run out when his loan officially does (I'm guessing the day after the playoff final, which just happens to be today) so we couldn't wait on it. I would guess he has gone on the advice of the assistant and the coaches as to where Sacko's game is and where they think it can get to.


6.) 28 May 2017 15:42:33
Notts, not pricey. Martyn is correct. Sacko cannot cross, play the right pass and doesn't get enough assists or goals but add to that "just yet". In his favour, he is fast as fork. What does 1.7m get you these days? Perhaps the new manager can teach him new skills. I'd have triggered the permanent buy option too. Our squad requires thickening out no doubt.


7.) 28 May 2017 16:02:37
Sorry tomorrow for the playoff final, got my dates wrong, either way, same point.


8.) 28 May 2017 22:14:34
Bargain. Pace scares defenders to death. He's still young enough to improve the rest of his game. On Dallas, does he he still play for us I can't remember?


9.) 29 May 2017 12:29:23
Think it can only be a good sign if we are spending that sort of money on squad players.


 

 

22 Apr 2017 18:40:59
Monk and the team lacked the courage of their convictions today as our "have a go" attitude did not muster an attempt on target for over 80 mins.

I agree that the current formation has got us this far however we have been worked out for a few months now and I am unsure as to whether Monk does not trust the current players to play another way or he is personally incapable of changing his philosophy.

That being said he had over achieved with an average squad and that should be recognised. History has repeated itself through a lack of investment in January has left us short

NottsWhite

1.) 23 Apr 2017 11:44:23
Certainly I have said, over the weeks that "Don't let them score" is Monk's first thoughts. We have never looked like a 4-0 team but having said that, if we had obtained promotion with boring 1-0 wins then I for one would not be complaining. There have been too many games where we have been outplayed but have salvaged a draw or a win against the odds. Let's hope that the close season sees a shake up (which may be forced on us by departures) . Next season will see more of a Monk's team and whilst I agree, build from the back, I hope that he finds a tight, forward thinking, midfield with a few goals in them. I am hoping now that the hardest working employees in Leeds are the scouts looking, searching and planning for next year.

Read a post on twitter regarding our current transfer activity that made my think a bit. With a number of clubs under financial constraints with FFP, they have to sell before they can bring in players. Does that put Leeds in a strong position to pick players up for a reasonable price the closer they get to the window closing. Personally I think it is clutching at straws and we seem more bothered about the bottom line rather than having a competing squad, but it does provide food for thought ?

NottsWhite

1.) 12 Jul 2018 14:52:42
Apart from Forest, who will be in FTP doodoo AGAIN next season, the only other clubs with anything to spend seem to be the relegated ones and, to a much lesser extent, us. Sounds you could be onto something Notts :)


2.) 12 Jul 2018 15:00:48
That is the point I have been making, the early bird does not always catch the best worm so to speak. There will be players from Championship clubs and the lower Premier league clubs becoming available to buy and also further down the line to loan that I think will serve our needs. And if other clubs have already spunked their budgets all the better. MOT


3.) 12 Jul 2018 16:13:22
Good posts but we must nevertheless try harder to land the Uruguayan goal machine, Wilson and our back line needs reinforcing because be it a 3 or a 4 we look weak there. I've also come to conclusion FFP only affects West Yorkshire clubs whose name begins with L. When has anyone been truly punished for blatant infringements? Moment we do it though the rule book will come out.


4.) 12 Jul 2018 20:56:25
A few clubs have been fined, Bournemouth for one, and QPR still owe the FL around £40M but apart from them . nowt


5.) 12 Jul 2018 21:21:12
Stafford So how come QPR are still trading? What would you do to a business who owed you £40m?


6.) 12 Jul 2018 22:20:46
If we owed 40 mill we, d be playing Sunday league football now under the name leeds city united


7.) 13 Jul 2018 00:15:16
I have no idea George, I keep googling QPR FTP fine but the latest thing I saw, and it was a few months back, their appeal to some court had failed but they were trying a different one. Why they still have their "golden ticket" is beyond me.


8.) 13 Jul 2018 13:35:52
Bournemouth were fined about £4.5 million - hardly a punishment if the risk brings the £120million premier TV deals is it? If someone siad they would give me £120 in return for a fiver i'd take it.


9.) 13 Jul 2018 15:44:58
Fines for football clubs are usually like that, absolutely ridiculous. Should be point deductions, but that would have to be whenever the club gets relegated.


 

 

10 Jul 2018 09:46:37
What is going on with our supposed transfer policy ? Have the three stooges blown so much smoke up Bielsa's backside that he believes that he can get a tune out of the shower that performed so poorly ? I believe that players will improve under quality coaching but it is unlikely to turn the likes of Cooper into Beckenbauer. Protracted transfer discussions about players without getting a firm understanding as to what package they were looking for. Players such as Bartley going for a song and we are not in the mix for a player that was identified as the number one target. People on twitter claiming to be ITK suggesting that Bielsa did not want Bartley as he did not fit his style of play. When are we going to go after a player who does fit his style of play ? Anyone brought in towards the end of this week would have missed three weeks of preseason and surely will take time to get used to Bielsa's tactics. It appears, on face value, to be an absolute shambles.

NottsWhite

1.) 10 Jul 2018 09:52:47
Couldn't agree more Notts.


2.) 10 Jul 2018 10:30:30
Bartley was ideal and sure he would have adapted. You are spot on anyone we buy will need to get used to Bielsa style of play and we are running out of time. We should have at least 3 players in place now. Once again we will end up with what's left or some unknown from Uzbekistan. Think we have a squad capable of competing but no where near a squad capable of going up unless all the young ones really are superstars i hope so.


3.) 10 Jul 2018 10:57:42
Kyle Bartley himself is mystified why Leeds haven't tried to sign him, Leeds is his preferred choice as were supposed to have wanted him back for months so why hasn't it happened, would strengthen defence no end, what's happened to the exciting summer Kinnear promised, he now states were going to give the loan market some hammer, wheres all the season ticket money he said would be spent on players plus the 10 million investment, badly let down yet again

{Ed001's Note - could be because he is injury prone and utterly incapable of playing the style of football Bielsa demands?}


4.) 10 Jul 2018 12:02:10
When Bartley and Janson were together the defence was way better than Cooper and Janson could be they don't wanna spend any money as well we've plenty of creativity in midfield he would shore up the defence, that's what's needed, whos to say he couldn't fit in with Bielsas demands? summats not right at Leeds others are doing good business in this so called hard market why not us

{Ed001's Note - because Bartley is crap on the ball and Bielsa's system demands all players be good on the ball.}


5.) 10 Jul 2018 12:10:37
Sorry Ed, there may be better ball players than Bartley but at the moment we only have Cooper and he is worse than Bartley. Time still to get players in but we appear, on face value, to have no strategy therefore supporters will bemoan the missed opportunity of signing a player who did well for us.

{Ed001's Note - so you just want a lot of money spunked on someone not good enough just because you don't like the current players? Personally I would rather my team bought the right players, rather than a never has been that can't stay fit for an entire season.}


6.) 10 Jul 2018 13:04:01
It’s a matter of opinion whether Bartley is good enough and therefore a matter of opinion as to whether the money would be “spunked”. Do I think that Bartley is an improvement on Cooper ? Yes. Do I think that Bartley was one of our stand out players in the 2016/17 season ? Yes. Do I think that Bartley got the best out of Jansson ? Yes. Again matter of opinion but I think the majority of supporters would agree on those points. What we do not know is what the club are doing to bring in a defender that is better than Bartley and until we do then I (and others) have every right to be concerned regarding the lack of transfer activity. I have shown my commitment by again renewing my season ticket, now it is time for the club to demonstrate theirs. A good start has been made by bringing in Bielsa but he is not going to improve the current crop to make them into promotion contenders (again matter of opinion)


7.) 10 Jul 2018 13:35:27
Ed001 if your saying Bartley is crap on the ball then Cooper is S**t on the ball can only use his left peg. Can't wait for this wonderful football with the current squad where no passes go astray.


8.) 10 Jul 2018 14:41:48
Well said Notts, we also know he is proven in the championship, Biesla may bring a centre back in that ‘suits his style’. but will he be able to play against championship fwds/formations other managers use? . like I say we know Bartley can,3.5 is not money spunked on a proven player


9.) 10 Jul 2018 18:37:13
I think Ed001 may be right. We don't want to spunk too early. Having decent signings could cause us to get excited prematurely! 😂😂😂


 

 

30 Jun 2018 19:40:13
Just heard on TV that Wolves are signing the Portugal keeper Patricio. This will mean that Ruddy will be second choice. He would be a keeper I would go for (or Westwood from Wednesday)

NottsWhite

1.) 30 Jun 2018 19:54:03
They signed him last week, but want to keep Ruddy.

Look on the bright side, Luke Murphy will be back next season to bolster our midfield options :)

We will have a full team coming back from loans i think.


2.) 30 Apr 2018 12:07:17
I thought same thing Notts. On form of current players, he'd take a place on the bench sadly.


3.) 30 Apr 2018 16:40:41
George. Even more sadly. He might start

Why would he give up this cushy gig ? The tail is wagging the dog with regards to his relationship with Radz. Orta is Teflon with regards to the poor performances from the players he has brought in and cannot be judged on the U23s for at least a couple of years. Why go to a club where he may be judged on actual results ? Utter madness

Unfortunately I think we will sign him. Orta has put time and effort into this deal and therefore will not want to lose face. I just think the lack of effort trying to secure a striker will lead to us bringing in a player that Orta wanted in the first place.
