Thoughts Guys? Do you think we have won both away games because of the 4-2-3-1 systems allows us to break quickly whilst the home team is coming on to us whereas at home the away team sits back more? Maybe 4-4-2 at Elland Road or at least for the last 30 mins if it's not going our way?

PP, I've posted a few times that away from home our set up works well and we have more time and space on the wings. I have seen both home games and it's a lot tougher. But against Fulham TC responded with both Saiz and Hernandez and we looked better. Who we have in the Centre at home is key as well to getting control. The good thing is that TC is a thinker and you can see him trying to work situations out. a good start, a thinking manager and 15 Mill in the back pocket to spend!

The reason we are so threatening is because in saiz alioski and Hernandez we have 3 naturally central players, so because they look to play centrally they can swap about on the pitch, and they can all push on to help the striker. For me this is the reason that we are seeing more from Hernandez, saiz roofe etc because they are pushing on and getting their shots in and following up in a diamond around the striker, while they can feed him in whoever it may be. Think Shane long fits the bill perfectly here, similarly nahki wells as a cheaper alternative, I don't think we should be looking to cross the ball as much and more focus on our on the ground play.

So many names being banded about leading up to transfer deadline day. It's exciting to be a Leeds fan. 😎 MOT.

Away at Burnley in the next round! See you soon Woody and CT.

Looks like we have signed the Dutch lad Jay Roy Grot but we will still be acquiring at least one more forward. Who do you think that will be guys after all the names that have been mentioned? Not who you want personally but who do you think will actually sign? I think the Gestede is a smoke screen for someone else and I am going on a wild punt it will be Jordan Hugill of PNE.


1.) 23 Aug 2017 07:26:49
Gestede was one of the players that Orta brought to the 'boro so it really wouldn't surprise me if he wanted to acquire him for Leeds. out of all the players in the UK we have been linked with I think this is the most likely.

Conversation between Magath & McCormack after losing last night to Forest 5-3.
Mc " we did well tonight didn't we boss?"
Mag " you what? We lost again!"
Mc " I know but we scored 3 and I got 2 of them"
Mag " yes Ross but we only have 1 pt from 7 games - it's a catastrophe"
Mc " don't worry because I did well scoring 2. Can I have another £10k a week please? "
Mag " you selfish little git"
Mc " look boss. I am not bothered. Give me another £10k a week because I am so good and I promise I will kiss the Fulham badge more than I did at leeds"
Mag " I can't do it Ross - I may lose my job at this rate "
Mc " well I can save that too. Give me the money, I will kiss the badge more AND I will go on national tv and say what a great manger you are and that you should stay and you have my support and I would leave the club if you left. See you are bound to keep your job now because I am so respected and so gooooooood"
Mag " sounds a plan ross. You can have £12k a week. Thanks mate "
This is only a bit of banter before the ffs brigade tell me to move on as he's gone. He still a little selfish lxxxx and always will be!
Up the revolution! Bring on the Udders! MOT


1.) Very funny Phil

But I would have thought it might have been

Its a catastrophe Ross

What we won a trophy boss - that's another £10k a week innit eh! (kisses badge)

How dare you ridicule next season's leading goalscorer in League One and runners-up medallist for the Johnstone Paint Trophy 2015?

3.) Looks like it wasn't enough - Magath has gone!

4.) Jesus some fans ave got short memories. Get over it lads, the man has left to further his career. Yes, in football more cash generally means a career advancement. HE IS NOT A LEEDS FAN.

5.) 19 Sep 2014 08:33:21
Read the second last line of the opening post Cork . Only a bit of craic.

6.) Its not like he went for 1mil and virtually ran out the door (ok maybe a little).

We got £11mill for him. that's 5l ess than both Welbeck and Balotelli and double what Asombaloonga cost.

Good business in my eyes both short term and long term.

Congrats to the lads tonight. There won't be many better 3 away points. Sounds like Silvestre was excellent again & Well done Redders - whatever you are saying to them at half time is certainly working! To the guys who went what was the formation and did Redders change it at all? With 3 strikers starting did we start 4-3-3? Cheers MOT

The media asked him to say something. He replied "I am Grot" (lol for anyone that's seen the movie Guardians of the Galaxy).


{Ed033's Note - Pity he didn't say, "I am Grot bags" 😋

Hi Guys Not posted for a while but glad to be back. Loved mad Micks comment about alphabet spaghetti to the spurs fan! The positivity I see is great so keep it going everyone. Radz prooving awesome too. In reply to your post I think you can add Hugill from Preston into the mix and today this 6ft 4in u19 Dutch international Jay Roy Grot. It says on his wiki page that Dutch media have confirmed Leeds agreed a fee today. I think this lad with a more proven striker like Rhodes will be great business replacing Wood. Exciting happy days! MOT.

A winger and a centre forward for me. It's a squad thing at the end of the day. No 11 players will win this league as it's a long hard slog. If we were to say get injuries or suspensions for say Roofe, Hernandez and Grot all at the same time we need cover and cover for the players coming in on the subs bench too. Plus I like competition for places!

Bermondsey I couldn't agree more about Cook. This kid has got a bright future. I thought Dawson may have broken through too this season but with all the midfield signings I am not so sure now.

Valley I am not throwing the toys out of the pram. I did that when Bates took over! Lol
And DualA1 - I agree it's great to watch football being played on the deck which it was. However there has to be an end result. But please just imagine you were Billy Sharp for a moment. As a striker would you be happy watching your team play footy 50yds from goal? He never got any service & was totally hacked off. You can't score from there. I just believe we have brought in some nice players but if a manager had done it then he would have added more balance. We need a couple of pacey wide men rather than the glut of central midfielders. And I must say our own boys of Cook &'Mowett were the best on show. I hope it pays off but sadly I don't think it will until we get width & a manager, not with that starting XI anyway. I really hope I am wrong. I must add though that the likes of Montenegro &!Adrayan may improve it somewhat and I agree with posts saying they all do need time which I accept too.
Bermond - thanks for the support. Love reading your posts mate. Keep em coming! Still & always MOT
