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.

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.

I spy with my little eye, something beginning with an overrated manager and team that relies on Harry Wilson?


1.) 12 Jan 2019 11:28:35
Does it begin with F. F?

2.) 12 Jan 2019 12:12:18
It begins with S. P. Six points.



07 Jan 2019 14:15:54
Bailey Peacock Farrell is an interesting discussion point at the moment with previous threads making comments about his perceived ability. I for one believe that there is a top quality keeper within him but those qualities will not come to prominence for a number of years and therefore we need an experienced keeper to see out the rest of this season. Positioning appears to be a fundamental flaw at the moment and I believe George correctly made the point that BPF has a bad habit of trying to "pinch yards" at set pieces which has been costing us goals of late. Goals conceded from free kicks i. e. Lawerence and Mulgrew he has lined up the wall and then moved about 5 yards off his line which has opened space at his near post (I accept that Lawrence's free kick went over his head) . The pinching of yards is to anticipate a cross ball into the box and therefore not being totally confident in his own reactions (which I think are ok) . BPF has plenty of positives i. e. distribution, shot stopping etc. but is getting found out on this achilles heel. Time is on his side, but for me, a goalkeeper learning his trade is not ideal for a team chasing promotion.


1.) 07 Jan 2019 15:08:54
Then maybe what we need to sign is the best goalkeeping coach we can find. Not a new goalkeeper?

2.) 07 Jan 2019 16:33:06
Possibly leodis, but goalkeepers tend to peak later than out field players. Playing for the first team is great experience for BPF and he will probably learn more about himself than he would on the training pitch. It can be a fine line between building experience and shattering confidence through being solely reliant on BPF. Being "one of our own" should not exempt him from being judged by the same standards that other squad players are. As I have said, bags of potential but needs to learn from his mistakes.

3.) 07 Jan 2019 17:05:41
Regarding BPF, I appreciate that being a child of the 50's some of my ideas may seem outdated now but why the hell don't we put guys on the posts at each corner? Look at QPR's winning goal and you can plainly see that even a smaller player like Shacks would have stopped that goal. Maybe we are not helping BPF as much as we could.

We had this drilled into us as kids at school. another good one was “If in doubt kick it out! ” but I don't think Bubba would like that :-)

4.) 07 Jan 2019 17:29:05
Good point sheds.

5.) 07 Jan 2019 18:09:25
I think we both agree Notts. He should keep playing but in the background a good goalkeeping coach would put his arm around the young lad. Remind him how good he is Tell him he is not quite perfect yet but this iswhat you need to do to eradicate your faults. Eradicate them on the training pitch and practice the solution in game time.

6.) 07 Jan 2019 18:10:25
Great point Sheds, I was screaming at the tv get someone on the post, would have been a simple clearance!

7.) 07 Jan 2019 18:23:59
Sheds, totally agree with you.

I posted on here before about "Big Jack" knowing when to hoof it out of the ground.

As for putting players on the posts it is a no-brainer. How many goals did Paul Reaney stop in his career being there? Luckily I saw most of them. I love Marcelo (not in any carnal way you understand) but I wish he would look at and adopt this strategy.

8.) 07 Jan 2019 19:25:58
Let's get Sully back as goalkeeping coach instead of this one that's never played the game.

9.) 08 Jan 2019 00:13:53
Staffy I agree.

10.) 08 Jan 2019 16:15:15
Thanks George, I always thought Sully was one of the best we've had.



04 Nov 2018 15:40:17
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!

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

I maybe be suspicious but maybe the obvious spy was sent to disrupt Derby's strategy rather than reporting what there tactics are. The spy's dossier would have been fairly short anyway as "No Wilson, no hope" would have been my report for a team utterly reliant on one person.

Preston have already tried for Hart. I think if Hart put his inflated ego aside then he would be a decent loan signing for a Championship club.
