I watched it live in Melbourne, draw a fair result with injuries and great to still be unbeaten, made better with boro and derby losing.
They were physical and just pumped ball into box, every throw in went long into box too, defense dealt with most of them.
Looked like Phillips playing very deep, 3 CB's, only looked vulnerable in last 3 mins, they went for it and hit post.

As for Roberts, he made some decent runs in behind and had 3-5 chances but like Ekuban, never made great confident contact, but least he got them and a goal will be a help for him.

Alioski was rubbish, no final ball, caught off side constantly, should have gone all out for Foden ( he unused sub again) ?
Missed Hernandez today but Harrison getting better. Surprised Edmundson didn't get a run when Roberts off and maybe not the right game for young Clarke, get him in for alioski against Preston.

Seems very fair and accurate summary Shadwell, thanks. I’d like to see Roberts getting another crack against Preston and hope he can get a goal so his confidence rises.

I seem to remember Alioski having bad games after the international breaks last year, he’s definately not consistent.

Not sure if he will start with Clarke bu a great Elland Road crowd must be a good place to give Clarke and Edmondson some minutes this week.

2.) 16 Sep 2018 10:56:22
Trust Bielsa to know the right moment for Clarke 😉.



14 Sep 2018 23:18:19
We bought Roberts for a reason, this is his big chance in his position, so has to start. He has pace and looks strong which we'll need against the wall. Now he has had a few run outs, let's hope he can play well and get us a goal.
Edmondson on bench as back up and would also have Clarke there too. Will Forshaw make the subs, not match fit but an option late on?
Think jansson in is a good thing and can see him and cooper being our main 2 Cb's.
Going for 0-1 and Roberts to score and then all discussing how good he looks?




19 Aug 2018 00:50:27
Great win in the end, first half I thought we struggled, our passing wasn't as good as it has been. They came to defend and try nick a goal, it nearly worked as they should have been at least 1 up at HT.

Second half we were much better, some great link play and what a run and goal from roofe, confidence is helping. No Roberts on bench today?
BPF has a good game and saved coops blunder. I actually thought beradi was the better CB today, don't think jansson is far away through.
Hopefully Swansea will play more attacking and give our players the space to do their magic. Big games come thick and fast and not a lot of rest, still feel need a couple of players on loan?


1.) 19 Aug 2018 07:30:53
Spot on Shadwell, good spot on Roberts, Pearce got the extra spot on the bench, which gave more defensive cover with Pontus and Shackleton. Perhaps it was a reflection of Roberts performance in the cup game?



28 Jul 2018 23:56:50
Very happy to have landed Douglas and seems a bargain price.
Now heavily linked with Bamford, I personally don't want this one to happen, I think we can do better and 10mil is over priced. If we do sign him then hope to be proven wrong.

Still think a CB a must but rumors are that MB happy with that area, guess back line of
Ailing Cooper Jansson Douglas
I would like CB like foyth in place of coop but not a bad looking back four?
Would still like a winger to come in next week, would love Maddison or Foden on loan. Will MB play a full strength side against L P, could this tell us his starting 11 for season opener.


1.) 29 Jul 2018 10:03:36
Maybe we will see one of the others re rolled as a CB - maybe bubba has a cunning plan? And when did he actually say he was happy with the back line? Is it fake news🤔😂.

2.) 30 Jul 2018 07:35:43
Bielsa apparently likes to play a DM as a defender so maybe we will see that this season rather than Coops?



03 Jul 2018 11:53:35
This Vydra thing taking some time, wonder what hold up is? Only 4 weeks till big season kickoff and still, in my view need 4- 6 players to give us a chance. I think GK a must (Gunn, Myhill, stockdale or Chelsea lad) , 1 or 2 CB's ( Foyth of Spurs rumor gone quiet) , ? Bartley. Imagine this set up. BPF Bartley Jansson Foyth Ailing Pearce Vieira Not a bad back looking rear guard 1x winger that can run at pace and attack defenses and cross, then think midfield sorted? Then 2 forwards, would like Vydra and Hernandez but that also lost its legs? The man City striker another option, i think bielsa should try use his history with pep and Poch and take a couple of their lads.


1.) 03 Jul 2018 13:56:21
Every flipping transfer we ever do takes for ever then ends up not happening except the ones the just come out of nowhere that the papers have never even mentioned . Heck of a lot of work to do, for me, de bock, Ekuban, cibiki, oKane, sako, klitsh all need to be gone

2.) 04 Jul 2018 07:11:44
As you say there is only 4 weeks to the start of the season and all we have done is sign a player on loan, not spent a penny yet despite all the sales patter over a month ago from Kinnear. It is so frustrating reading us being linked with every Tom, Dick and Harry and nothing happening. Come on Radz and Co, the fans have bought in again for this season after last season's failure. Don't let us down again, get the deals done bring in some quality and show us you mean business.

3.) 04 Jul 2018 20:47:13
Leeds linked to, chasing, in talks with. All spiel we have been hearing since the summer transfer window began. 20 million transfer kitty apparently, but we struggling to get our reported targets. Rumour was we offered 11 million for Vydra and now it's reported we only offered 8.Now I know lots of fake news about but something not adding up as to why we struggling to get the players we want.

Not seen much of Izzy Brown ( if it is to be him) , sounds like a decent player if over his injury.
Slightly disappointed with transfers/ loans or lack of, but seems bielsa is happy with the squad he has. Really fancied getting foyth and having him, jansson and cooper as a back 3? To be fair beradi has played well but don't think we will be promoted with him as CB. Cooper also better than last season and hope he and Pontus can make a formidable partnership with ailing and Doug.
Think we are 3-4 players off a promotion winning side, would also have liked a defensive MF, but maybe Forshaw can slot in well on his return.
I noticed Foden wasn't on bench or in city's team at weekend, could it be him?
Lastly, would have liked another striker as sure that roofe will have a barren run, hope not and still not convinced with Bamford.
If we can stay in top 1-4 positions in league and if needed spend in Jan, time will tell. Friday's game is soooo big. MOT.


1.) 30 Aug 2018 15:42:06
I thought Forshaw played very disciplined on the few times I saw him last season, so i am crossing my fingers that he can play that holding midfielder role when he is fit and Phillips needs to be rested

I don't think Phillips has been viewed as a defensive midfielder prior to this season. I seem to recall he was being pushed forward by previous managers and told to improve his goal tally. So i am impressed by the speed he is taking to his new role. Sure, he isn't "the new David Batty" but he seems to be getting to grips with the responsibilities. Hopefully Mr Biesla can work the same magic on Forshaw once he is back training with the first team.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 17:13:36
Love that post Axe! Kal has historically been an attacking midfielder, even as a junior, So to adapt to the role he is now playing to good effect, is quite an achievement. And I agree that Forshaw will be ideal in the same role, once he's back up to peed and fitness.

3.) 30 Aug 2018 17:54:13
Strange how all the previous managers couldn't see what Bub has seen :)



22 Aug 2018 00:47:50
A fantastic result away against a fancied team to go straight back up. Watch swans highlights against Birmingham and they were lucky to draw but tonight they looked a decent side. Makes our performance great and now top having played some top sides.
We do need 2-3 loans in for me, shows our lack of depth, playing 2 RB's at CB?
Think we missed cooper tonight and need Pontus back in and I still think foyth would be ideal.
Also feel Philips, who to be fair has played really well apart from 27 mins tonight, isn't the long term answer, we need a defensive midfielder in as competition for him.
I would try get in Maddison as need that attacking winger and what have seen of Harrison, not impressed yet.
Lastly think need another forward, seems like Roberts demoted.
Really think our manager is brilliant and we could really have a chance at automatic promotion but just need a few more in.
If someone has Rads email, tell him only 10 days till loans end. MOT.


1.) 22 Aug 2018 07:26:33
We've needed another CB for the last few seasons since Barts went back. Yes we have a couple of youngsters but for a serious push this season towards the top half we need some new players or player bringing in this position. We won't get away long-term with keep playing players out of position.

2.) 22 Aug 2018 07:53:20
Great post Shadders 😎.

3.) 22 Aug 2018 10:37:48
Thanks DJ, feel this could be our season and just hoping we
can get another couple in, to help make it a reality.



14 Aug 2018 23:22:35
Another solid win and great to have a few on debuts, don't think he will change team for next game though. I thought Pontus would slot in but may need more time to displace others. I would still swap out beradi for Pontus as he will be better with cooper and slightly easier team to play?
Just 2 weeks till loans closed, if I were rads and seeing what we are achieving, I'd be trying to get 3-4 quality loans in, going to be hard to keep this up and there will be injuries etc.
Players and positions for me are CB ( foyth) , defensive mid (Besic) , wing (Maddison) and maybe a striker.
Think then could be a top 2 team and premiership a realistic aim.


1.) 15 Aug 2018 06:45:59
Shadwell, I think you are right first time on Pontus, it wasn’t the commanding performance that we hoped for. Given it’s Rotherham, I think he might keep him on the bench for another week.

I would be surprised if we got 4 more players in, 1 of those possibly. If you got all 4, what do you do with them? Put them straight in the team and instead of which players? The knock on effect will be that 4 of our youngsters won’t get a sniff of the squad.

I like Bielsas approach, and I hope as the year goes on, more of our promising under 23s will be ready for more appearances in the squad.



10 Aug 2018 23:51:36
Can't wait for the derby game, if we can play with the pace and pressing like against stoke, could be exciting times.
MB seems to have got then fit and they will need that in this league, just need a few more faces in to help with long season.
Nmecha to PNE disappointing as still think we need that pacey goal scorer, just got to hope Bamford can be that 20+ man. Roberts is also like a new signing but jury still out, don't think roofe is good enough even though he was great last week.
Seems like when we get mentioned with a player, takes us weeks and weeks to tryget over the line, then miss out. But selling a different matter, vieira in a few days.


1.) 11 Aug 2018 09:37:04
Have to agree Shadwell, we are always quicker getting outgoing deals done than incoming. As you say we are still short on numbers so I hope that Radz, Kinnear and Orta realise what a chance they have of achieving something if they back the Manager with a couple more quality signings even though they will be loans, then strengthen further if we are in the mix come January.



09 Aug 2018 22:49:03
Yes slightly disappointed with end to widow. We apparently had 20mil kitty and incomings ( bam/ Doug) for? 11mil, then 3 loans ( baker/ jam/ harri) , no big outlay but maybe 4.5mil in wages per year
Sold vieira 7 mil so should have approx 12- 16 mil credit?
If rads really wants promotion and the rewards it reaps, has to spend as this squad not good enough.
Should have brought in CB, defense middle man to replace veira, another winger like Maddison and feel a pacey striker, then would have cover for every position to cover injuries/ suspensions. Need some loans now, Nmecha, foyth etc.


1.) 09 Aug 2018 23:35:13
Nmecha out on loan too Preston I think.
I think we may get a good couple off top loans on top money in next few weeks. Here’s hoping.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 23:48:42
Nmecha took his boots to PNE
Think the plan was always going to be loan market but its getting right people over the line to help us.

3.) 10 Aug 2018 00:19:38
I think the budget is included for January too, and we also have a loan window.

4.) 10 Aug 2018 06:03:12
I don't know why we are talking about January. When we were told there's no value in the window.

5.) 10 Aug 2018 08:03:05
Too right wex.
To me. January transfer window is for teams and management that didn’t plan and get the right players to do the job preseason. Oh wait. That is us.
Well it’s all over now. Maybe couple of loans. Maybe not.
One thing is for sure. Biesla must be happy with what he has got cause radz wouldn’t risk him having a strop and storming out.
Let’s see how he does though. So far so good. Maybe he is a maestro and maybe he has got enough nous and players for the job. Time will tell.
Not that keen on the kit tbh.

6.) 10 Aug 2018 08:09:37
Loan with option to buy in Jan wex simples.

7.) 10 Aug 2018 14:52:48
And like I said before, we got Forshaw in January.

Hey Ausman, I live in Melbourne and subscribe to Bein sports and it is on Monday at 1.30am live. Bein show all sky games so can watch them. Then I also have Lufc tv for 99p per week and they screen all of the games except the ones on sky. Have to pay 5 quid to screen games but can pretty much watch every leeds match.

Yes both of them would have been huge, but Marriot going to derby, still think Maddison could supply some mean balls to our forwards.
Can’t believe boro value Bamford around 16mil, I would estimate 7-8 tops, think derby paying 9mil for Marriot and he was prolific last season. If we pay 50k per week for Hernandez over 3 years, think that is 7.5mil?

Hear what u saying slough, but maybe bielsa and his back room team can improve them. If not then move them on but worth a try.
