This is getting silly, not sure if it the pre season fitness training or just very unlucky. Injuries now going to hurt us, catch 22 though as think that training has got this amazing season out of them.

Orta/ Rads/ MB have 3 weeks to go, see what happens.
Squad is too thin, these players if fit or here would be first teamers and unfortunately hard to get out of this league.
Saiz, Izzy, Bamford, Pablo, Phillips, coops and Douglas all missing.

Shadow Saiz no longer missing. He simply doesn't play for us anymore. If you believe he's still technically missing then so is Mark Viduka and Eddie Gray.


2.) 10 Jan 2019 01:29:27
Nothing to do with training, just one of them (Leeds) things.


3.) 10 Jan 2019 15:14:36
Shadwell I understand your post mate, unfortunately some like to be pretty.

don't you mean 'petty' Whiteman?

The irony of it, eh Alf!? 😂.

Seems like we transferring more players out and not many in comings. Starting to get a little nervous and think it will be a huge mistake not to improve team with 2-3 additions. The rewards are vast if promoted and this is our chance with a great manager and still top. Didn't they get around 22 mil for wood/ vieira and only brought in Bamford and Doug for 10? Didn't we also get 10 mil from USA backers?
I would be very happy with Frazier Forster, need an experienced keeper and he would give defense confidence.

Should also try get floriente from spurs, I feel we need a striker as Bamford seems injury prone and roofe needs competition.
Then either or both of pacey winger (Maddison) and that saiz type of linking player to pull the strings, jonjo shelvy is the type I mean, sees those little passes that hurt teams.

MB says he only wants players to improve team, think these would and be nailed on for premiership footy. Sorry but baker, Harrison, BPF and alioski not good enough. Spend 20 mil now and reap the rewards, if not I can see us getting caught and in playoffs which is tough.
If we don't invest and don't get promoted, can see next season without Biesla, Pontus, roofe, Klich and Clarke.

Freeing up wages.


2.) 09 Jan 2019 11:30:28
I agree with Martyn. I think there must a project of balancing the books going on

I would rather spend large on the wages of one very good loan player who will get in to the 1st 11, than on the wages of 3 or 4 players who are only looking at making the U23 matchday squad

If Baker is going, as is rumoured in the papers, and Saiz's wages are off the books, then hopefully we can tempt some decent talent to buy in to Bieslas project, even if it's just for 5 months.

Axe. You’re on fire at the moment pal! Good posts!

Wonder if bielsa and pep still mates, can't believe he lent us Harrison, mates for u.

Shadwell

1.) 23 Dec 2018 16:17:53
In jacks defence he hasn’t played in months, but the performance he gave wasn’t up to the standard Marcelo or the fans expect.


 

 

20 Dec 2018 22:14:14
Think we will find it tough against villa and would happily take a point now. I rate bollasi and think Shackleton needs to be ready for him as very tricky.
Abraham also playing well and I would go with Halme in back 4 and KP holding.

As for Jan and possibles, for GK, seems to have gone quiet on Heaton front, is that because he let in 6 for under 23's, still think he a decent keeper. What about Frazier Forster, he 30 and very good and seems down pecking order at saints, be great for next couple seasons and help BPF.
Thinking now a Cb maybe not needed and more a priority to have a pacey winger and still think a quality forward on loan, I like lorrente but never going to happen.

Sounds like Ayling will start on Sunday!? That came from nowhere!


2.) 21 Dec 2018 17:37:40
Keep the faith and believe

This is our time.


3.) 21 Dec 2018 21:27:47
Defo Shadwell that KP should be holding. Whether Ayling or Shackleton at right back, great we have Ayling back and a young lad bloodied in his place. With Ayling and Bamford back its like new signings already, couple more in Jan and we’re in great shape, would love Foden for last part of the season and he’d be so mgood ch better off with us than 10 minute cameos for city.


 

 

08 Dec 2018 23:34:32
Bit of a gap and 4 in a row which is very impressive.
Nice to get a penalty but feel roofe should have had 4, missed 2 sitters.

Shadwell

1.) 09 Dec 2018 08:01:28
I agree Shadwell, I think that is why Roofe almost fought Hernadez to take the penalty! He was keen to make his figures look better.

When you look at this group of payers, only one key area to improve on that would make an enormous difference to our ability to close out games. Strike rate of goals from opportunities. We should have got 1/ 2 goals early in that game yesterday. If we can score more, the dynamic of the game changes and we don’t have so many scary moments in the last 10 minutes. Our fitness, hard work and team spirit is still pulling us through, but find a way of scoring more and we will be the finished product.


2.) 09 Dec 2018 12:28:12
Agree Spanish. We look unstoppable in the first two thirds but as soon as we get near goal it starts to unravel. It's not that we play badly. It's just that we do not seem to have a killer touch. Our decision making seems to fail us. Pass when we should shoot etc. I feel maybe a little greedy. We are second and playing with a patched up team (maybe were getting spoiled) but I look at some of the draws and think "if only".


3.) 09 Dec 2018 23:23:49
You’re right, all of you. But if we had that clinical edge in the final third, we’d be winning the champions league. But we are still fighting our way out of the second tier of English football, on a budget. It’s not going to all click at once, but we are getting there! Plus grinding out a result below par like yesterday is a massive positive.


4.) 10 Dec 2018 02:35:32
I'll take a striker that converts 2 chances from 4 any day of the week.


5.) 10 Dec 2018 08:43:01
Bright, honestly not looking beyond the Championship, I think we might need a few more tweaks before the champions league beckons. Just looking at what we need to do to improve this year and ease the worrying! Doesn’t even need to be a new player, because we have brown and Bamford to play with as well. I want us to nail promotion this year, the opportunity is there and we have worked so hard to get it. I’m sure the comments about scoring more are probably what bielsa would say himself.


6.) 10 Dec 2018 14:11:26
This is why we need a fit Bamford, he will be much more clinical I feel.


7.) 10 Dec 2018 15:41:29
Alf, certainly good to have him fit and breathing down Roofes neck, particularly if what Wex is saying is true and he is earning double what Roofe is earning!


8.) 11 Dec 2018 09:18:26
Yes think Roofe should score more but the way we play the attacking midfielders should be as well. Saiz Alioski should have more to their name as well. I am sure the goals will come and no doubt Bielsa will be working on that every training session. The ability is there but we need some one to flip the switch.

Thanks Whiteman, I understand he not a Leeds player now but saying these are the players in squad since season start and now not available due to injury or loaned. All of these would be starters and we haven't got the cover or replaced.

Shadwell

 

 

09 Jan 2019 01:34:15
Respectfully disagree, we have done amazing under bielsa and been top is fantastic. I don't feel we will sustain it over next 4 months and a few quality additions will get us up.
I understand about young lads like Clarke and feel he is a player and will be a big part in Lufc. If the other young ones good enough they will filter into team. Harrison and alioski not good enough, alioski has improved slightly over last few games but he can't go past a player or score. Harrison has done nothing and they both need replacing, alioski as a sub maybe. I think roofe will go through a lean patch and unsure if Bamford is the striker to step in, time will tell.
We need to also replace saiz and have a creative force between defense and attack. Still hoping Izzy can be that player but how long do we wait.
Lastly BPF not bad but not commanding enough with balls into box, and need a number 1 for me, Forster be my choice.
Team doesn't need a major influx but with 3 quality additions, I feel promotion a big chance. If no investment and don't get up, I feel our best will go.

Shadwell

1.) 09 Jan 2019 07:30:24
Nice bit of pessimism from shadwell to wake up to.


2.) 09 Jan 2019 12:51:55
How many of roofes goals have come from Alioski crosses?

I’m not going to count them, someone else can

Alioski is a good foil for Douglas

When I was building championship winning teams - all in my book “ building championship winning teams” I always tried to look at players that were prepared to cover team mates and work in partnership with those around them

I also did a lot of playing players in different positions within our system so they had an understanding of team mates jobs all over the pitch

Some called me a visionary

I just nicked the idea off Ajax.


3.) 09 Jan 2019 13:02:20
you should come up with a catchy name for your system Other, like 'Complete Football' or something along those lines.

Get Milner in now rather than at end of season.
Highly experienced. Plays the type of game we do, fit as a butchers dogs and versatile too.
I'd also take Forster Shadwell.


2.) 08 Jan 2019 23:40:05
Really fed up with all these so called sites linking us with everyone. Was we really after van la parra or one of two others who have gone on to other championship teams? My guess no, but if yes, why couldn't the championships top team get them. I know Bielsa has come out and said no not yet or similar when asked about possibility of getting new players. Wish the club would come out and let us know if we do or don't want to bring new players in, they don't have to say who, sure would be nice.


3.) 08 Jan 2019 23:48:54
Absolutely no chance off getting Milner in. Not now. And probably not in the summer. Liverpool going for the title. He was captain last night and Liverpool would let him leave. Don’t think so. just my opinion. 😂👍⚽️.


4.) 09 Jan 2019 00:46:05
A lot of work obviously going on re the playing staff, easier to sort out players going from us. Can’t force players to come to us at the right price. Still a lot of time left before the end of the window and some premiership decisions with knock on effects, won’t happen until late in the window. But some realism required, Liverpool have a real chance of winning the Premiership, are they really going to be prepared to let Milner go before then and is he really going to want to go?


5.) 09 Jan 2019 06:15:35
Milner said he’d like to play for us again if we get promoted.
Don’t think he is dropping down a league anytime in the next 3-5 years.


6.) 09 Jan 2019 06:15:57
Milner to join us in the summer when his contract runs out and after he’s lifted the premiership and annoyed Salford.


7.) 09 Jan 2019 09:30:46
I think its called click bait Mezzer. I'm sure that one of the Ed's did a great article on the subject fairly recently. Or I may have read it elsewhere. Ed's - was it one of yours or am i imagining things again?

{Ed001's Note - he is sort of an editor, though he very rarely edits he is part of the team. This is the article if you click here about how they just make up articles to get people to click on them. It is literally a case of scanning through squad lists and plucking out players to either link with moves to or from clubs with big internet followings.}


8.) 09 Jan 2019 13:18:31
Did someone mention Shelvey? By the time he'd lost enough weight to get in the team he'd be too old.


 

 

02 Jan 2019 07:51:06
2 defeats, but other results been kind and not done too much damage, every team up there are having good and bad runs.
Really think players need this 10 day rest before Derby, play a reserve side in cup with ailing to get up to speed as he not looked there yet. Don't think Harrison helped him yesterday, not great linking up between them.
We have all been saying it, Kp not CB and he needs to go back in midfield after ban.
They did amazing with 10 men and to get back the lead, guess recent games took its toll, was shouting at tv after 1-2 to get on couple of subs.
Seen Heaton played for Burnley and did great, wonder save late on, should have been sorted b4, I rate him, now hope for darlow as BPF not the answer, just yet.
I have a weird and sickening feeling we won't invest and may slide out of automatic spots. Need coops back ASAP. The league is there for the taking and only need 3 quality additions to get promoted (GK, winger, forward) . Will know more by 1st feb and if rad's is serious, MOT.

Should we be on the transfers already, villa have keeper sorted and now Brom have got holgate who could have been a good loan. If we getting in players, sooner better.

Shadwell

1.) 30 Dec 2018 21:30:34
Holgate was never coming to Leeds, Everton say he has to play.


2.) 31 Dec 2018 03:59:53
Maybe he could have been a regular, either with Pontus or as back 3 with coops / Pontus and 2 wing backs.


3.) 31 Dec 2018 08:16:42
If players have been supposedly identified be strange if we had not already started negotiating with them. Seen a story that maybe Roberts will be our secret weapon, if so we are stuffed.

I think he is weak on crosses or balls into the box, starts to come then retreats.
