Rumour that Klich is fly into Leeds for talks


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 ?


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

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


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.

Pablo Hernandez rumoured to be signing. This would represent a high quality signing for the Championship.


1.) 31 Jul 2016 20:34:05
High quality signing would have been pitchard. Quality.

2.) 02 Aug 2016 17:38:03
Pritchard along with Txeira who Brighton had on loan from Liverpool, two best players I've seen in Championship. Would have eclipsed all our signings so far but we haven't shown that extra ambition and have missed out on him. He's off to Brighton.



25 Jul 2016 13:04:03
Midfielder to be signed in next 24 hours but not Bridcutt.


1.) 25 Jul 2016 13:44:58
who then?

2.) 25 Jul 2016 14:24:04
Have been linked with a couple of people (including - Pritchard from Spurs on loan, Flamini, Lazzari and Leon Osman) but looks most likely to be Hamburgs Swedish international Albin Ekdal (26) . Good player, definite quality (has also played for Juventus) but has had a lot of problems with injuries over the last couple of years. Would be a risk to sign him but we could end up with a top player on the cheap if he is past the worst of it.

3.) 25 Jul 2016 14:24:31
Nor is it Ekdal apparently?!?

ah, I see Notts. Looks like they were wrong anyway : (

Maybe 48hrs.

6.) 26 Jul 2016 17:20:06
Journo that posted the initial tweet supposedly posted an update saying it was someone for the U21s. Most likely that lad from Reading that we have had on trial (Conor Shaughnessy) then at a guess?

Chris Wood is rubbish, should have scored a hatrick eh Ausman




29 Jan 2017 16:25:55
Those that clamour for Silvestre to start in league games, watch today's game. Couple of good saves them totally bottles it and gives away the penalty. This is why he will be never good enough. Not blaming him for today's result as entire team was awful. Travelling fans deserve an apology for a weaken starting eleven and an overall gutless display.


1.) 29 Jan 2017 16:37:10
Silvestri didn't give away penalty Coyle did.

2.) 29 Jan 2017 16:53:46
Think it was could, though tbh think they were both probably penalties! Think we had a stone waller though too!

3.) 29 Jan 2017 17:32:18
Either or Wex but Silvestre certainly did not help. Never is and never will be good enough.

4.) 29 Jan 2017 20:40:11
sylvestri turned his back to ball, if he had not it would have been in his arms. Think he thought Coyle was gunna slam into him.



09 Jan 2017 21:42:25
For all those that rave about Silvestre, what his performance tonight and tell me why he should be the number 1.


1.) 09 Jan 2017 22:10:11
Watch not what

2.) 09 Jan 2017 22:11:46
Maybe he shouldn't e the number 1, but from what I saw tonight he made just ONE mistake, a ball that went in off the post? Was happy to see his reaction to crosses has improved. He is work in progress, and I remember many people saying the same about schmeikel?

3.) 09 Jan 2017 22:54:09
No command of box, does not catch the ball, punched at a shot he should have caught in his midriff and was beaten at near post. Apart from that he had a great game

4.) 10 Jan 2017 00:27:37
I counted a lot more than 1 mistake L4alt, they just didn't cost us, parrying an easily catch-able ball back into the centre of the box with a weak sauce punch nearly hurt us for one. that's schoolyard stuff, if you can't catch it (which again, he should have, easily) you put the ball wide to make it harder if an opposition player gets to it first. On top of that did a single one of his kicks find a Leeds player?



14 Dec 2016 10:39:10
Tactically spot on from Monk last night. When I saw the team I was worried as we appeared to have no midfield however we maintained a disciplined two banks of fours with Viera between the defence and midfield with Wood as the lone striker. Reading did not seem to have an answer and constantly passed the ball between their back four which brought ironic olays from our crowd. The injury to Wood disrupted us for about 10 mins but we settled back down and gained control of the game. Reading did have a lot of possession but did not do much with it and we were quite happy for them to have the ball in areas that could not damage us. All played well but special mention to Dallas who worked his nuts off, Taylor (except one pass back mistake) kept McCleary fairly quite and won the penalty, Ayling for some good covering around the back two and Viera who seems to get better each game. Good to see Bridcutt back who despite looking a bit rusty slotted in and communicated well with midfield to maintain the shape. Worried about Wood being injured because he is pivotal to how we play and really is looking physically fitter this season.




21 Nov 2016 10:28:10
Couldn't go to the game due to work commitments after having the Saturday booked off (cheers Sky for switching the day) . From what I have read and being told, we have no reason to be ashamed in losing to a team that will probably win the league comfortably and have spent over £50 million more than us in the transfer window this season. Definitely puts the result into perspective. 3 points return from playing consecutive games against Norwich and Newcastle is not too shabby.

Don't talk nonsense BW. Even if Jansson was fit Monk would have put him on the bench. Rumour being that Jansson and Ayling had a training ground bust up which Monk tried to separate but Jansson laid hands on Monk. Totally unacceptable from Jansson but he paid the price by being dropped for the Brighton game. Monk needs to discipline the play but should not cut off his nose to spite his face.

Why would we let him go on loan when we would not release him for a fee in the transfer window

What case ? Give us an insight as to why you believe that we did not create enough chances. You have offered no opinion apart from "did not turn up".

I don't remember making an excuse as to why we lost, I merely suggested a factor that could have contributed. You also make the mistake of taking what I said too literally, in that you applied it to the whole team.

My comments post the Millwall game were that TC could have used the depth of his squad to make some changes to personnel i. e. Hernandez, does not have the stamina to maintain a high press game Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday.

Yes, professional players should have a high level of fitness but can we assume that TC has got this squad super fit ? We were outworked and hassled by a Millwall team that did not allow us to play our attacking game however we also looked laboured with our passing and movement.

Unfortunately the way TC has us playing requires players to be fresh and therefore the requirement to utilise the squad to maintain the freshness in the team. Three to four changes to the team on Saturday could have made a big difference (or may have made no difference) . To say that the team did not turn up is a tad simplistic or dare I say ignorant.
