Possession in football isn't always nine tenths of the law, it is what you do with the ball that counts. Glad to see Hernandez back because he adds to creativity of the team and takes the focus off Saiz. A fit Roofe "sniffing" around the six yard box will offer more than Roberts who is still learning the game and operates around the penalty spot/ edge of the box.




09 Aug 2018 19:38:01
Hefele picked up by Forest from Huddersfield for £300k. Not the most cultured centre back but leaves nothing on the pitch. Given our lack of defensive cover this should have been a no brainer.


1.) 10 Aug 2018 00:34:45
I think Radz, Victor and Angus started the Ayling to WBA rumour so we all concentrate on keeping him and forget aobut incomings . Jokin' aside, I'm happy to trust MB with the squad. I rather he turns our current crop into Championship beaters - I've spent so much of my time cheering on this lot, I'd prefer the familiar faces (albeit fustrating at times) to do well over new signings! . MOT.



27 Jul 2018 09:32:34
Rumour that the penny has finally dropped and that the club are looking for another central defender. Danny Batth of Wolves has been mentioned. Probably could pick him up for a decent price and provides greater aerial presence than Cooper.


1.) 27 Jul 2018 11:59:03
Hope so Notts! Would be a good signing IMO.

2.) 27 Jul 2018 13:22:43
We ought to be looking at a better Cooper, namely Jake at Millwall.

3.) 28 Jul 2018 10:45:08
Leeds in for bamford according to SSPNEWS. Is this an assumption that Vydra will not be signing? Surely we won’t be signing both?



01 Jul 2018 11:07:52
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)


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



06 Feb 2018 15:19:21
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


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.

Kalvin Phillips man of the match. Only against Wigan though so probably shouldn't count :)


1.) 04 Nov 2018 15:55:51
Is that Bermondsey signed on as Notts! I hear Bermondsey has cancelled his sky membership . He was watching the game with Wigan fans and they all agreed Phillips was rubbish and Alioski scared the Wigan defense to death!

2.) 04 Nov 2018 15:58:22
Good display from Ngolo Pirlo 😁.

3.) 04 Nov 2018 16:31:14
Hernandez for me.

4.) 04 Nov 2018 16:56:58
And probably for me, he’s just sheet class, usually has a hand somewhere in the good stuff we do. Today scored one and made one! But Douglas as well, had a good game. We really miss those two.



06 Oct 2018 20:35:12
I am not his biggest fan but KP was not the reason why we did not win today despite the prejudice of one particular poster. Brentford mirrored our style and did not allow the full backs to push forward. Pontus was top notch today but too many had off games and Bielsa must consider squad rotation after the international break, as we really have missed Hernandez and Roofe. That being said, against a decent team and a referee, I am not unhappy that we got a point today.


1.) 06 Oct 2018 21:20:16
notts please, I did not say he was the reason we did not win just that we were not the better team today and we were over ran in midfeild and KP class was shown, he is not the reason but also not good enough, we got few players out and they are good team so decent point but not promotion form for me.

2.) 06 Oct 2018 21:45:36
KP was no worse than Klich or Siaz today. Both teams cancelled each other out. Draw was fair result.

3.) 06 Oct 2018 22:23:28
The balls that we passed back to our keeper at times didn't help when he is lumping it up to saiz, Roberts, and Harrison who lost it to the opposition or out of play.

4.) 06 Oct 2018 23:29:17
KP class shown Bermondsey? Phil Hay had him as equal 2nd rating today, with at least 5 below him. Today the problems were behind him and in front of him and not due to him. Compared with a number of the others, he actually had a reasonable game. Too many errors, as Bielsa stated after the game and actually a lot more from other players. We had the ball, we just lost it time and time again by bad balls and then put pressure on ourselves by more bad balls in defense. But even then, it took a dodgy penalty for them to take the lead.

KP isn’t going to define our season or stop us from getting promoted, he’s good enough to protect the defense, which he has been doing and link the play to Saiz and Klich. Often he is able to do more than that by picking out other players with great passes and today he was unlucky not to score.

A quarter of the season gone and we are in third place having played without Hernandez, Roofe and Bamford for 56 games . Let’s get them back and see what impact that has on the team. Don’t give up on promotion yet, it’s October 6th!

5.) 07 Oct 2018 01:28:38
I agree. I think Brentford are the best footballing team
In the league. They have been doing what we are doing the last 2 seasons with an unknown manager. For me are a good team too watch playing proper football. Is taje a draw all day long against them home and away. We didn’t lose which tbh I think in first half could have been a couple down. So move on. And get a few players back fit after international break. ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️🍺.

6.) 07 Oct 2018 07:22:23
5 or 6 games but it feels like 56!

7.) 07 Oct 2018 08:51:35
Sorry Spanish few on here said KP anomous and of course i agree, defensivley he offers nothing which is why pontus has to play so well because his batty can't play like batty, for me middle of the park is the most important place and will have large baring on where we finish, for me someone who is over run and can't defend will cost, on the other hand he is good asinst hull but against brentford can not influcne play again not due to class on ball but due to pace and molibility is not able to get on the ball. Said it against stoke and maybe 100 times since (maybe 10000) he is not good enough due to his flaws dispite his quality, he will cost us and be anonomous against teams like brentford and defeinslively is such a huge liability due to him being anonomous.

i have not given up on playoffs but unless we get someone to play in his position a team with KP in it will not compete in play offs in my opinion he plays too viaitl a role.

8.) 07 Oct 2018 12:53:40
I was at the game, he wasn’t anonymous, Phil Hay didn’t think he was anonymous! How can an anonymous player almost score the winner! As I’ve said before, you’re not really criticising Phillipis you’re criticising Bielsa because he picks him and trusts him to do that job, game after game and yesterday he didn’t sub him, why, because his position wasn’t the problem, his distribution wasn’t the problem. The ball was with Cooper and Ayling and they were miss kicking it both under and without pressure. When the ball was going through Phillips to Saiz, Kilch and Harrison they were losing it or miss kicking it. Still honestly do not understand how a Leeds Fan who has watched what we have achieved this year so far, with a new coach, new style and injured stars, can believe that 5th is the highest we can come! So on the 7th October, you’ve given up on a top 4 finish!

9.) 07 Oct 2018 14:23:54
Agree Spanish, I was at the game also and will defend KP as he wasn't anonymous, he played better than most our team yesterday. I will criticise any player when he has a stinker, but some people are taking the KP bashing to the point of obsession. The guy is wearing a Leeds top and going out to do his best for our team, Bielsa thinks so. I didn't date Roberts performance yesterday but I want the guy to succeed.

10.) 07 Oct 2018 17:02:57
i'm not saying we can't finsih above 4th of course we can still win it, i'm just saying i don't think we will. these are too different things.

with KP also saw the game (twice now) for me everything i have said time and time again still applies, i have noted a as the the season goes on a lot more people are agreeing with me, which is a shame i would hope he would prove me wrong but i have seen nothing to make me think this will be one of the very few times i am wrong, to give me credit when i made predicitons on this site about players it normally comes right.

11.) 07 Oct 2018 21:18:34
Berm, can only assum your hatered for KP stems from your paths crossing or you caught him with your missus?



02 Oct 2018 21:54:27
I thought KP had a decent game tonight.


1.) 02 Oct 2018 22:12:21
Don't tell Berm.

2.) 02 Oct 2018 22:13:30
He did, don’t think he misplaced many passes if any

Tidy job slotting in and out of the back line and midfield.

3.) 02 Oct 2018 22:30:09
i think KP played well tonight, great passing, but then always said as a passer one of best in league

didnt make a single tackle all game, he can't tackle that's not his fault but a worry in that position, think mb is playing him too deep

also by passed too much again that is not his game or fault if you can't run you can't run.

he has some great assest and some awful assest, think what he offers on one hand he is a liablity in the next. I do feel his skill set is better served further up field where his passing will hurt and his tackling won't matter.

4.) 02 Oct 2018 23:02:42
Bermondsey, do you have a KP alert on your phone! Every time someone makes a comment about him, your phone buzzes! Apparently 6 premier league scouts at the ground watching him tonight and Everton preparing a 10 million bid for January! How many tattoos, does that equal?

5.) 03 Oct 2018 07:56:11
to be fair if prem scouts where there tonight he did show his class.10 million is one big tattoo of him in a heart riding a unicorn!



21 Aug 2018 23:22:01
Phillips was poor and on a booking and got hooked. Right decision by Bielsa but it gives me no joy in seeing it. Saying that Phillips will eventually have a poor game does not make you Nostradamus. We all know that Phillips will put inconsistent performances in as he has form for it. When a better player is available to play the role Phillips does then I trust Bielsa to make the right choice.


1.) 22 Aug 2018 07:51:00
It tells me we need radz to get his wallet out and get ryan woods in on loan to buy.

2.) 22 Aug 2018 07:58:11
Notts seeing any leeds player playing bad gives no joy but seein MB make a brave early call and us geting point as result gives me great joy

it don't make me nosradums but does make all my post that i got jumped on for a good point doesn't it?

He played poorly agsint stoke and could of cost us at least two goals and a red card, then derby he costs us a goal. and i said against a better team he wil lcost us, against a better team he ain't good enough. then tonight happened.

nustradums. no. having a point and maybe comments against me befoe harsh. yeah maybe.

3.) 22 Aug 2018 09:05:10
Well said Notts! I’m with you, there is a difference between constructive criticism when it is due and just going out to destroy one of our own players, let’s leave that to the fans of other teams!



29 Jul 2018 20:23:31
Went to the game and left after 75 mins so missed Roofe's goal. Even with Jansson and Douglas we would still require a couple more players (Bamford will help) . Height of the team still remains the issue as only Cooper registered being over 6ft. I like how we are trying to knock the ball about but their is a time and a place. Sides will press Peacock Farrell therefore he needs to take less risks. The loss of Forshaw is a big one as Viera struggles to play the box to box role. Klich is a better passer but lacks any mobility and therefore you have both him and Phillips playing deep which leaves a massive void in midfield. Roofe was feeding on scraps but does little for me to assert himself on the game. Our final ball is generally left wanting from the flanks or from Saiz who looks off the place. I like Hernandez but I do not think he will be able to contribute for an entire Championship season. Berardi although I praise his spirit he is not a centre back. Apologies for sounding negative but in the 75 mins I watched I thought we huffed and puffed against a side that still has a couple of weeks of pre-season. Positives - Phillips is better in a clearly defined role but needs to cut out the Hollywood passes. Baker looks a good touch player and will be effective driving past the centre forward. Douglas and Ayling with give us quality from the wing back roles. Cooper looks like he is learning about positioning and retaining possession. Roberts could provide some threat running with the ball. We need quality to create chances and some to finish them.


1.) 29 Jul 2018 21:02:07
IMO we need Maddison he would be THE signing of the summer.

2.) 29 Jul 2018 21:15:22
Nothing wrong with your honest opinion mate. A balanced view in my humble opinion. I wasn’t there so appreciate the feedback.

3.) 29 Jul 2018 21:42:05
Thank you for the helpful analysis Notts.

4.) 29 Jul 2018 21:56:59
Sign Bamford and use the cash saved on vydra to get Maddison and sell saiz to Valencia or Getafe and use remaining money to sign Tammy Abraham, see who else we can get in on loan tbh I’d let Roofe go to wba if it’s upward of 7m . There’s still work to be done but having been today we look better than last season although a little toothless, klich looked decent in the middle .

5.) 30 Jul 2018 00:05:20
Good idea Dleedsm. Abraham is class.

I have read articles that state Bielsa is happy with his central defensive options and only wants a left back and a striker. I hope this is not the case as we will be severely expose if injuries/ suspensions occur. Also I believe I am right in that we have conceded in the last two friendlies from corners. Does not bode well.

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

BPF is not the sole reason why we lost but he is a weak link. He is at an age where he can improve but needs to work on his positioning and his susceptibility to long shots. Blackman his bided his time, he should now be given an opportunity.

You must have given Wood a chance to prove himself then, so why not Bamford?

06 Nov 2018 06:57:49
Yes, that Bamford has been a waste of money. Came into squad later than the rest, started the season on the bench getting limited game time, then picked up an unlucky injury during an U23s game. Shame on Bamford! He should have 20 goals by now 😂.

04 Nov 2018 18:44:37
I agree, although BPF is young and learning he is making some costly fundamental mistakes. At the moment he seems to have a weakness with positioning and puts players under pressure with some of the short passes he plays.

Agree, confidence in front of goal is low at the moment. He is probably our most gifted player but just seems a bit jaded to me.
