Why did Radz and Orta actually sign Roberts? They might see hell of a potential in him to spend a fair bit on a youngster who wouldn't be able to play for a season? Maybe the genuinely knew nothing of the injury, but for some reason I have a feeling they did. Be interesting when he comes in to the team next season!

He is supposed to have some pedigree and class.


2.) 23 Apr 2018 08:09:22
So has my Irish staffy George but he's crap at football


3.) 23 Apr 2018 14:51:43
Have we sunk to slagging players off before they've even kicked a ball in anger now? the mind boggles

{Ed033's Note - Somebody has to take the blame


4.) 23 Apr 2018 18:16:19
No all but he was bought to play so bought to lay on the physio table so someone in the management team is to blame


5.) 23 Apr 2018 21:10:39
Yep. won't slag the player. Surely he had a medical before being signed? Somats gone very wrong in processing the signing, only for him to not play for the first half season of his contract? That's a joke really.


6.) 24 Apr 2018 20:49:57
He did have a medical then cracked a shin in training

Don't get why so many people are opposed to radz '5 year plan'. I'm sure a lot of people will be eating humble pie when we're a strong side in the prem in 5 years, I know I'd much rather have a 5 year plan than a one hit season in the champ and get annihilated week in week out next year in the prem and end up in league 1 two years later

So good to read a sensible post, totally agree O’Leary just posted something similar saying we are in a good a position as we’ve been for many a year.


2.) 14 Feb 2018 21:46:29
Totally agree. Too many people want instant success which sometimes is acheivable but rarely sustainable. I have so much admiration for Radz plan and his strength of will to persevere. The more it goes on the more I feel that when we do go up it will have longevity.


3.) 14 Feb 2018 23:10:11
In all honesty Leodis I think some people on here including me are fed up of waiting, we build up for a new season and then it’s a no show again, It’s been a tough few years, we had MasterBates who nearly wiped us off the map, then that other lot who just used us for gain and who I believe have held us back! MC came in and although he got us on a stable footing he was a mad head and then Radz who has done a fantastic job, the only bad thing is he brought Orta in! It’s hard to remember that Radz has only been with us for just over half a season so in terms of club progression he’s doing wonders but impatient fans like me forget that! I love the fact that Radz owns us and I know he wants to succeed and he knows he will make mistakes, that’s in reality but myself and many others crave that success we had with O’Leary, this time though we want to have it properly and not recklessly, but and again we want it yesterday and not tomorrow! Negative or positive we all want the same thing! Good post O’Leary, 92 and Leodis.


4.) 15 Feb 2018 11:35:24
Instant success? We didn't get relegated last year we been out of premier league for over 12 yrs so to say people want instant success is potty.


5.) 15 Feb 2018 13:49:41
Class - couldn't agree with the essay you wrote on the banter page more, wish I could give it two thumbs up!

Leodis - Completely correct on the longevity angle. Build the foundations first.

Mike - Completely appreciate where you're coming from, I know you've come under a bit of fire recently but it's nice to see you're still able to see it from other people's perspectives too!

Martyn - Sticking with theme of perspective, you could say it's been X amount of years since the old glory days and people are getting impatient but bare in mind we were in league 1 more recently than the premier league. Without Radz and even MC stepping in we could still be a tax write off for GFH today with absolutely no chance of major improvement, that is why I think Radz deserves at least a chance with his 5 year plan. Sorry for delayed responses. Living in china ATM, the time difference and firewall does not help! MOT.


6.) 15 Feb 2018 15:12:29
Leodis - the most frustrating thing is to be in the dark. I've always said if the chairman shares the plan with us so tat we can see how we are doing against a goal people will be more patient and happier. if we don't know where we are going or how long it takes the journey is much more difficult.

Two bits of positive news doing the rounds today, Leeds are in talks with lassogo but refusing to pay anything near his ridiculous wages and Wood has been offered a 3 year extension, whether you want him to stay or not, this will put it all to bed finally, either he signs and stays or refuses and leeds cash in.

1.) 18 Aug 2017 14:51:39
Ok ol


2.) 18 Aug 2017 17:36:16
Definitely good management to start talking about new terms for Wood, puts the ball in his court!

How many quality and consistent breakthroughs from the u23s would it take this season for Radz plan to look hopeful and for everybody to agree Orta has done a good job? Not at all saying he has, just interested in what's needed for the fans forgiveness!

OLeary4King

1.) 16 May 2018 19:09:45
I'd say that if another three became regulars in the squad, occasional starters, but frequent subs, then that's a damned good return. To be fair, they are lining up already, so fingers crossed!


2.) 16 May 2018 21:06:53
Whoa Brighty. Maybe we are on the verge of saying Orta has done a good job but let's just ameliorate that by ending - for the Academy. So maybe he should be Director of Future Football and leave the grown ups alone.


3.) 17 May 2018 00:00:50
I think if we can have a settled starting 11 with 5-6 young starters. Job well done. But he will also need to buy the right class experienced 2-3 we need now.

I read somewhere on here that season ticket renewals are looking pretty bleak, if that's true I think it gives more credibility to the Marco silva rumour, after all Radz is a business man and he'll want to make a move to boost them asap. That aligned with Silva is actually a proven and successful manager might just give Radz enough motivation

OLeary4King

1.) 01 May 2018 19:33:53
Wouldn't say no to Silva if it has to happen but a couple of marquee signings and a promise of game time for the young guns will also give the seadson ticket sales a boost.


2.) 01 May 2018 21:43:50
Silva would add 10k+ season ticket sales. The club need a statement of intent.


3.) 02 May 2018 07:25:47
The appointment alone wouldnt, but coupled with investment on decent players would

Kyle Bartley reportedly in Leeds sights, apparently opened talks with Swansea, love for this to happen but a lot of me thinks it's click bait and lazy journalism. But him and Pontus, what a foundation to build on.

OLeary4King

1.) 29 Apr 2018 16:07:19
Seems genuine to me. Hay reports it's genuine and it makes sense for Radz to pull off a popular move which would undoubtedly sell season tickets. Without signing Bartley or a move of similar proportions, I don't see a large clamour for renewal.


2.) 29 Apr 2018 16:29:05
Just a PR stunt to take our minds off another defeat and the Myanmar controversy and to try and boost season ticket sales.


3.) 29 Apr 2018 16:50:49
Probably be a month of talks then we will just miss out.


 

 

14 Apr 2018 20:00:20
One thing that has worried me a bit about PH is that apart from bringing a few youngsters in, which a massive positive although injuries may have played their part, he hasn't really made any drastic changes. Pretty much the same formation and same core players even though we're getting played off the park. They may be good players in bad form which is why he's sticking with them, but even so such a run of poor performances requires something to change otherwise it's just the definition of insanity

OLeary4King

1.) 14 Apr 2018 20:17:52
Good observation OLeary. Think it boils down to the same problem TC had. We brought in players to play a certain way / style, and as many say on here, there's no plan B, because we don't currently have the right / versatile players for a plan B.


2.) 14 Apr 2018 20:41:27
Not much of a Plan A either!


3.) 14 Apr 2018 21:06:07
So why appoint a limited hoofball manager when we clearly don't have the players for that style of play?


4.) 14 Apr 2018 21:43:30
Don't think he wants to play hoofball, not based on what I've watched, anyway?


5.) 14 Apr 2018 23:06:50
To be honest bright I don't think he knows what style he wants to play his self. Not with what we have the squads too mish mashed

Although not ideal I agree, I haven't seen enough of ekuban to make a final decision but he has looked promising and lass and roofes aren't bad temporary stand ins if they have half a glass of motivation before the game. Not ideal, but not doom and gloom.

Great post bright and good contribution Alf. For the first time in years I'm feeling very optimistic about the future. Radz seems have his head screwed on and knows what he's doing off the field. Yes there are some issues on the field and yes they might have rolled the dice on a few of the players that have been brought in but that to me is the nature of the beast, at least they're giving it a good go and building well for the future! In 3 years if we're holding our own in the PL it will have been worth not going up this year/having the perfect squad right now.

Wouldn't turn my nose up at TP jansonn Bartley and ayling. Even if we swapped Bartley for paudie/nessy, with a decent midfield in front of them and a bit of structure, think it could do a job myself!

Alf that was 10/10, if we had a strong proven striker and gave Grot a run out in the last 20 mins of games/cup games he would get hell of a lot less slack/pressure, unfortunate circumstances. He's only young, he's built like a brick shed and he clearly has potential. Definitely keep for the future.

Marriott and Maddison have hints of Kemar roofe v2.0 for me. Could be the real deal but I thought that about roofe too so cautious now. Bartley had a fantastic season with us, but injuries seem to keep him sidelined. Mcgeady I have no idea. Klich definitely agree, he seems to have some class in his play. Give him another go!
