Be ironic if we get beat by Barnsley and then Hecky gets the sack! I wanted him to do well but don't think we have improved since TC sacked, if anything gone backwards. Not all his fault as suspensions and injuries not helped. I just feel we need a change in manager to attract better types of players and to convince the decent players at club to stay as moving in right direction.

That also down to rads to state he going to invest and make a push for prem and not just a 5 year plan. As said before don't think it will take huge influx of players, if we keep saiz, Pablo, Pontus, vieira and Forshaw. With young ones pushing on ( BPF, Pearce, Rey, O'Connor etc) and recall Coyle, Ideguchi, ? Klich. Then get ailing and Roberts back, may only need 3-4 good buys? Need CB, winger, MF (Vinny type ) and striker.

Shadwell

1.) 17 Apr 2018 05:18:26
Shadwell Make that 7 good buys. We require new goalkeeper even if only as number 2. Our current numbers 2 and 3 are awful. 2 central defenders to replace Penny and Cooper. Winger like you said. Hardman like you said. 2 strikers because Lassoga is off and Roberts looks like a sicknote. Ekuban and Grot not up to it just yet and nothing will change over 4 months. We need quality in those positions so we will need 20m investment on hand. Don't think Radz has even half of that. Next season will likely prove a carbon copy of this. More mediocrity.


2.) 17 Apr 2018 01:00:33
We need a left-back as well, Pearce is looking good but it's a long old season for a kid . a few mistakes and some of our so-called fans will hammer him


 

 

06 Apr 2018 00:43:36
I am on the get rid of PH wagon as don't think he has shown anything that TC didn't. My feeling is that he won't be able to attract the type of players we need to push for promotion or convince our 4-5 decent players to stay, feel we need a higher profile manager to do this (Silva) ? But I do feel alittle sorry for him as he inherited a squad low on confidence. I guess it's his job to motivate and get the best out of a bad bunch.

He is in a scary catch 22 position as fans crying out for youngsters to be used and I agree totally as season gone and need to know what he has to work with. The thing is though, he wants to keep his job and if uses them and they sink and Leeds get beat in last 6 games, he will probably be axed? But guess on flip side, if he plays them and we improve, he could be a hero ? My team for next game be- BPF, beradi, O'Connor, Pontus, Pearce. Veira, Anita or Rey Alioski, Siaz Clarke Ekuban ( Dalby to come on) What u think, what would your lineups be?

Shadwell

1.) 06 Apr 2018 05:04:03
PH looking more and more like Hockaday 2.0. Don't see him being at the club long-term. I'm hoping Radz replaces him with someone superior in the summer.


2.) 06 Apr 2018 10:10:02
Not a bad line up. Playing Anita in his correct position, radical thinking there Shad.


3.) 06 Apr 2018 10:27:02
Unfortunately we're in a minority on here. Don't see what the fan club has been impressed with? It can't be his win rate.


4.) 06 Apr 2018 14:58:48
I don't see why you should complain about not having a stable club when your asking the manager to be sacked after a few games, yes its not going very well, but if you haven't noticed he has been changing the team every week to try and find out who is **** and who is good, because he belives that we had no chance of reaching the play offs. he is telling radz that these players are shit and we need to sell them. he got a **** club like barnsley promoted, then with those players got in the top ten i belieive? then was forced to sell those players to clubs like aston villa who are now pushing on to promotion? i personally think he's not a fool and hopefully with a good summer can turn it around. having said that i'd instantly get silva in as he i really rate. but he will not come to leeds in the championship as he is a top class manager who wants top class football so until that happens we can jog on


5.) 06 Apr 2018 15:28:05
And he can't see that in training?


6.) 06 Apr 2018 18:22:29
well partly yes but matches are always much harder and different than training. plus, aekoban for example links up well and works harder than other strikers but can't score for ****. he is giving him chances but will ultimatly leave because he can't score


7.) 06 Apr 2018 18:44:18
Then try a young striker that is scoring?


8.) 07 Apr 2018 10:25:56
Agree Shad Heckys most important conversation will be convincing Radz of the situation and the way forward. Potentially the cheapest way forward is the biggest gamble but it is one the should be made. He needs to say to Radz; either I can play safe, maybe park the bus a bit and scramble a few points or risk it and try youth who may blow up but equally may be a revelation. The riskiest but most rewarding is Plan B. but if it goes wrong, don't fire me. It really needs doing. PS and it will save you millions!


 

 

10 Mar 2018 22:10:07
Didn't see game but sounds like a slight improvement, ? good 2nd half showing. Great to hear BPF taking his chance, maybe PH looks at fans opinions. Also like that he tried Ekuban, but appears he works hard but no end product? He was prolific at last club but guess champ a different class, would love him to score and see if he improves. Feel maybe him and Tyler as a front two could work. Now we are safe from relagation and playoffs gone, time to blood a few more of the 'one for the future ' players. Starting with Pearce at LB, give him a chance and rest Bock. Does PH not rate veira, doesn't seem confident in him, surely better than O'kane and Phillips. Does anyone know where this Madger Gomes is, midfielder from Liverpool, still on lufc site as midfield, is he injured? Is Tyler Roberts going to figure this campaign or resting till next season, be good to have a look at him.

Shadwell

1.) 11 Mar 2018 18:20:16
The slight improvement was down to playing a poorer team shadwell that's all


2.) 12 Mar 2018 08:48:44
No manager ever looked at fans opinions on players That way lies madness De bock needs chance to adjust to the requirements and intensity of this dog fight, sorry league. Game time not rest. Also heck needs a good look at all his squad and the 50 u23s between now and June Gomes is playing u23


3.) 12 Mar 2018 13:53:30
Ekuban has not scored and Roberts has not kicked a ball in anger for us but they could be our striking partnership next season ?


4.) 12 Mar 2018 19:17:02
The Roberts situation is the biggest puzzle. Why the feck did we spend that money, on a kid, who is unlikely to play this season? That, out of all of the "future" signings is the weirdest of all!


5.) 12 Mar 2018 21:44:12
Roberts was fit when we bought him and then picked up a knock - he wasn’t intended to not play I don’t think


6.) 13 Mar 2018 07:29:54
Players do get injured.


7.) 13 Mar 2018 09:07:26
Ah, ok. thought he already had a knock when we bought him. my bad!


8.) 14 Mar 2018 09:07:36
Your right bright he was injured when he signed. They announced he wouldn't be in the squad that weekend straight after he signed


 

 

27 Feb 2018 22:51:36
How big is this next game against boro? If we can come away with a win, be a huge boost and set us up nicely for remainder. Still a lot of points up for grabs but I think we will just fall short, we need to have a great run but still other teams need to do opposite. I don't think we score enough, lassoga playing better but I would still love a pacey striker up top. With saiz's vision and passing, playing through balls into the channels and fast striker running on past defenders and goal, lassoga can't do that. He needs to be in box or if outside he try's long short.

I would love a jimmy Floyd H back in team, fast, powerful with fierce shot. Was hoping Ekuban could be that, maybe in time but he sooooo needs that goal to come and unsure if PH a fan?

Shadwell

1.) 28 Feb 2018 11:03:42
lewis grabban would have been that man imo. to be totally honest, its looking likely that boro are going to do their homework on us, traore will make anyone but dallas look like a mug on friday, so stick him there. We have to have a solid foundation from the start. If we want to have a chance of walking away with 3 points the team for me is: Wied, the best of 2 underperformers, berardi, jansson, pennington, dallas. on the right alioski, will work hard i think this week to prove his point, in the middle forshaw with phillips, 2 lads who will happily get stuck in in a game which will imo be low scoring and scrappy, on the left you play hernandez, number 10 saiz, and drop lasogga. i'd drop lasogga and play ekuban because they don't have a fast defence, starting ekuban may mean he's less clinical but he's certainly likely to tire these big lads out, he'll chase every ball that gets provided, and for 60 or 70 minutes i think he can do a job if he's on it. bring lasogga on when the game gets stretched and start throwing everything at him, really make him and said a focal point. we need to play on the ground and play to our advantages, i think its evident that hecky knows our best style now, we've gotten better with every game imo. very possible that we can take 3 points, they just need to start well and their tails will be up, riverside is a tough place to go though, need a controlled, composed, strong performance, the result will come through skill and us being fitter than them over 90 minutes, if we can have energy in that last half an hour itll get really stretched and that's when we need to be clinical. boro concede lots of late goals, ekuban could nacker them, and we exploit that. I think that's all ekuban is good for, we do need someone who can do what he does and score too, finding that will make a huge difference to us, i'm sure hecky knows that though


2.) 28 Feb 2018 18:50:43
Don't think Hecky will drop Coops or Lassy


 

 

24 Feb 2018 23:20:03
A great result against an in form team who had scored 7 in 2 games, speaks volumes of defense today. Didn't see game but sounds like back 5 did well and not too many chances for them. Reading comments on our midfield, hearing O'kane and Phillips not helping and ? we missed Forshaw for sure. Do hope that Forshaw and veiria can gel and be our midfield spine next season.

I am concerned about next season and Ideguchi, looking at his time with cultural, it not going too well. He was an unused sub today and has started once in past 8 games, been on bench so not injured. Was hoping he be a great find but now thinking an Orta crap buy, time will tell. Not sure why lufc have him there, if he not even in the team, should be here and let PH work with him.

Shadwell

1.) 25 Feb 2018 13:44:37
Shad, totally agree on Ideguchi. What reason are CL not playing him? Is he so bad? Whatever the reason then why oh why is he festering in Spain. If CL need him to avoid relegation then play him regularily and everyone happy, if not then get him on a plane to LBA asap. I hope to God your wrong Shad and that he isn't just another one of Ortas duds.

It's weird not being over fussed about getting beat, happy to not win again as I now want Hecky to go. Glad it wasn't a big defeat as young lads at back did brill. We have no creativity going forward, thought defense did a great job and best players were BPF, O'Connor and Pearce. Think we found our LB and GK solutions. O'connor will be good but I would still go all out to keep Pontus ( unless we can get 15mil for him) ? And buy another CB. I'd send back penn, he caught out for goal, needs to jump and head it? When we get ailing and Coyle back, could be solid defense, but need 2 CB's if Pontus goes. I think Hecky should have played roofe and Phillips tonight! Roofe is crap and losing faith with Ekuban, a sub at best but still feel he could come good eventually. Get rid of lassoga and Grot and invest in decent striker ( beraheno from stoke? ) We never look like scoring but improved in 2nd half with saiz, he could be a hero and for me a Keep. He just needs players around and in front of him to pass to, he trying to do it all himself when a clever pass would work better.

Shadwell

 

 

13 Apr 2018 03:50:16
Will go 3-1 villa, has to play Pearce, maybe try Anita in middle with V? Doesn't look like Rey, Clarke, Dalby or kun going to get a start this season, seems perfect opportunity to me, but guess PH concerned about his job and feels too big a gamble?

Shadwell

1.) 13 Apr 2018 07:11:28
Anita can't run. I am guessing that's why he's not been played centre mid all season, him and grot were so poor at Preston on Tuesday. I aren't even looking fwd to going to the game today, there was only Pablo trying at Preston, he was on another level to the rest . we didn't get back to elland rd on the coach till 1.30am so plenty of time for all to reflect on the game, everyone saying the same, no positives, can't see where our next points will come, Pontus bottled it again (watch the replays, all he did was head the ball clear, no contact with anyone at all) . can Heck motivate them? . as soon as Phillips misplaces a pass he hides for the rest of the game. saiz and alioski both look like the first championship season has caught up with them. I really can't see a style of play. just glad we have enough points to stay up


2.) 13 Apr 2018 10:46:15
Stop with the anita talk. Blokes a sissy. don't like boasting at all but i said few weeks back. can't see us winning another one. We have fallen apart since november. Nothing going to change now. Its a shame we have to pick some of the crap we have cause most don't deserve the shirt.


3.) 13 Apr 2018 11:57:20
Only saying Anita in middle as we are low on players and don’t like Phillips. We should have recalled Ideguchi a few months ago. I would get rid of Anita but maybe try him in middle as his position and don’t want him in defense. If we keep manager and Orta, could be a hard season ahead, I can’t see PH winning any games and now with skeleton team, going to be tough. I would love rads to go for a Silva, billic, Sherwood or raneirie, think that is the only way to keep our best players. Think Pontus and saiz would stay if new man comes in otherwise they GONE! Don’t think it could be all doom and gloom, with emergence of BPF and a few other young ones ( O’connor, Pearce, Rey and Clarke) and if we get back ailing and Coyle and buy a commanding CB with Pontus then good back line. Also Hoping that Ideguchi is worth all the hype, with Viera, Forshaw, saiz, Pablo and alioski, maybe only need a winger, middle sorted. Onto forwards, Roberts be like a new signing and hope he is the a player to score but still feel we need another striker. What about a cheeky bid for beriheno from stoke, seems abit of a sulk but sure if playing every week, he be a good buy? Think it all depends on rads getting in a high profile manager and letting Orta go to Deportivo. I think we could get away with only 3-4 new signings but would have to be money put up for above players.


4.) 13 Apr 2018 13:52:37
Saiz and Jansson are both under contract - if they want to leave it will be on our terms.


 

 

08 Apr 2018 00:22:17
We can't beat Sunderland at home, this is becoming very bad, if nothing changes we are in a relegation battle all next season. Couple of positives were O'conner and BPF again, see how he is coming on with regular game time. A blessing with beradi sent off is he surely has to give Pearce another game, but Hecky main play lassoga at LB? Not a fan of Dallas in defense but not much choice now, get ailing back for next season and Recall Coyle. AR needs to go all out to keep Pontus and defo needs a new CB (Bartley/flint) type. I think Pablo gone, better wages at brum and his mate. Maybe we can see why monk left, no say on players etc? Stop playing lassoga, firstly he has no movement and he is another that wants out, Ekuban would've been better against their defense today. Like I posted other day, tough for Hecky as needs wins for his job, but some of these players aren't helping, so give Dalby, Clarke and Edmondson some game time, even if a half each. Also I not a fan of Phillips and would like to have kun on bench. Does anyone have Amanda stevleys email? Can u contact and ask her to buy lufc, it's what we need if rads not going to put up.

Shadwell

1.) 08 Apr 2018 04:11:22
Good post Shad. I doubt she'd remember me but I met her a couple times. Easily the finest businessperson I ever met. Would be better than Radz.


2.) 08 Apr 2018 08:00:32
Shadwell, great post just don’t understand why you got a thumbs down when it’s all true, Ed won’t agree with your statement on Amanda!, being saying that for a long time we all know she has no money, and is just a broker, but what she does have is backing from good investment people! unlike Rads who sings a good song but not a singer, keep them coming mate


3.) 08 Apr 2018 08:04:14
George, please please find her number, but don’t let the Ed know, don’t think he’s keen. I believe she would, her team would be much much better then this mob.


4.) 08 Apr 2018 10:22:13
Her deal to buy Newcastle looks to be back on.


 

 

04 Apr 2018 08:40:34
How did Grot bags miss that header, he even cushioned it over the bar, top CB in the making? Aren't forwards meant to head the ball down? I have said a few times on this site that I like Ekuban but my patients is running thin, I like that he getting in positions but he has to finish those. Plus point, thought veria was strong, think him and Forshaw be good long term and hoping Ideguchi is a find. BPF also looking good, will hopefully improve further with games but like what I see, couple of good saves and defense seems to have more confidence in him than Felix? I want PH gone, why is he playing players out of position, this is the ideal time to try Pearce, play beradi RB instead of winger Dallas. Pearce could have had 3 games now and answer the LB questions. PH states how important that Ekuban miss was and that if scored we would have been favorites to win ( are u kidding) . AR could still salvage his rep and be an lufc hero, that's what most of the 35k fans want. Sack PH, go all out and try for Silva, with assurances of cash to spend and a great team and fans to ignite. If rads only has 8mil for next season to allow, then rads should try sell up. Convince Pontus, saiz and Pablo to stay. With Forshaw, veria, ailing and PF we may only need 3-5 players to make a decent team. Need CB, LB, winger and striker. Recall Coyle, Klitch and try Kun, Clarke, Rey in last 6 games.

Shadwell

1.) 04 Apr 2018 09:01:41
my patients are all old and can't run anywhere let alone to get thin


 

 

02 Apr 2018 11:16:51
I am happy for Ekuban to get his goal, been along time waiting. Only watched extended highlights but a good hit and hopefully he will keep his place for the rest of the season. I feel he is a decent forward and will come on with more game time, I know he should have done better with other 2 chances but he getting in that position to score is a good thing. He is far more mobile than lassoga and hope he and Roberts can make a decent front 2, would still like lufc to buy another big money striker too. I also like when saiz came on and he passed the ball straight away a couple of times, his vision for pass to Ekuban was class and shows one quick pass can be more effective than trying to go past 4 players. I think he just needs to have confidence in his team mates. I feel Pearce should have started, PH was concerned about their winger amiobe, but he needs to play now when no major pressure of getting promoted to see if we need to buy new LB. Think it should have been beradi on right instead of Dallas, guess Denton and Anita not in his plans? Looking like alioski improving but needs to work on hitting the target, gets in good position but keeps blazing over bar.

Shadwell

1.) 02 Apr 2018 12:54:29
Pretty much agree with you Shad. So many players are good but -? Heckys task is knowing which ones have a hidden 10% that can still come out. If Ekuban doesn't turn into a goal machine I still believe there is a role for him upfront, in a 4-4-2, with his pace and energy. I too was surprised he dropped Pearce. He has to be tested and now is a perfect time.


2.) 02 Apr 2018 13:40:41
It is criminal not to play 2 in front at home.


3.) 02 Apr 2018 15:13:33
I back Heck decision on TP. Last thing we want is his confidence to be affected by a seasoned pro like Amiobe. No doubt Fulham also have a capable tricky right winger so it might be same again. So long as TP gets more game time before end of season because he looks promising. As for Ekuban, more goals will come as he adapts to the English game. He just has to stay fit and keep learning. I can see Dalby pushing him soon which is also a good thing. With correct player retention, dead wood release and good recruitment in the summer especially in defense and midfield we should be playoff candidates for 2019.


4.) 02 Apr 2018 21:18:42
George I’m pretty sure you said more or less the same this time last season? One day you’ll get it right😎


5.) 03 Apr 2018 06:01:36
I did Cork you are correct. However, just because I said this does not mean that my ideal was executed. It was not executed. Not recruiting an improvement on Cooper was plain foolish and as for the recruitment of Wiedwald can't describe the amount of ineptitude in that decision. From all accounts some of these younglings popping up are going to improve us. Bailey already has. Pontus, Pablo and Saiz need to stay. We also must continue to play 4-4-2.


6.) 03 Apr 2018 06:20:39
Good posts George lad! No nonsense and articulate just need the team to follow suit 😎


7.) 03 Apr 2018 08:58:36
Only jesting George! You’re right but not necessarily about the 442. All depends on what players we recruit.


8.) 03 Apr 2018 11:49:42
I just got a call. Hecks wants me to partner ekuban. Bit confused. i'm a goalie.


9.) 03 Apr 2018 13:36:15

They’re a very well run club and have been fantastic this season, Wood has scored a few. Taylor got in the team for a few weeks, but watching motd, he not playing recently, is he injured or dropped? How do they do it, only get 10-15,000 at home games.

Future is looking brighter with potential under 18,23’s but they should have spent money in Jan window on fist team, they still had a chance. We were in playoff positions and still had a chance at 2nd if we bought well. When that became a no chance, players have dropped off big time. Rads needed to buy a CB as penn and cooper not good enough, a GK as Felix cost us lots of points. Also should have cancelled lassoga loan and bought a striker that was FIT?

Sure he is and wouldn’t come to Leeds, but I’d be happy if they tried. If AR gave him assurances of money to buy his type of players, you never know. It would have to be a good budget and then with him at helm, maybe the 5 good players we have may stay? Dare to dream

If he hasn’t got that sort of money to invest then time to go as we will never get promoted. Silly of him to take wood’s money over 3 seasons.
