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.

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.



26 Jun 2018 22:47:27
Now saying pep would help us with a few loans? Pity about Foden, rated highly but like the sound of young striker. Need a Gk to ideally help with PF, not sure about stockdale now, maybe Gunn. Would still try for Spurs CB as need cover big time in defense. Then if loan city striker, also go out and get either henendez or Vydra, but he seems to be a crazy price? Maybe better with Abel, along with Roberts. Great to see big training sessions, very excited for season ahead


1.) 27 Jun 2018 02:54:15
Would rather have Stockake than Gunn on a loan. If we loan Gunn the expectation wil be that he plays which leaves BPF on the bench. Much better long term plan to have BPF experience the first team game time.

2.) 27 Jun 2018 09:55:39
Maybe gunn on a loan to buy?

3.) 27 Jun 2018 19:53:59
Southampton reported to be trying to sign Gunn on a potential £15 million deal.



31 May 2018 23:38:35
My first choice manager now gone to The toffees, next ones be Ranieri or this biesla. Should have let Hecky go straight after last game, not let him go on holiday still in charge. If not going to sack him rads then come out and quash these rumors. I feel so sorry for Ideguchi, what a shower of ? Poor lad was going great, let's hope he get into Yorkshire early and lights up our midfield.


1.) 02 Jun 2018 09:32:57
Shadwell, it’s Radz your talking about what more could be said.



25 May 2018 23:05:58
So rumors are 10mil for transfers from the 49ers? Are we also due the 2nd installment (6mil) of wood's sale to Burnley? Then if so looking slightly better, could offer Abel decent wages, Bart's ( if ailing can convince over cocktails) or that type CB. A speedy winger who can go past players and cross, is the lad from p-boro that type of player (? Madison) , saying he around the 3m.




10 May 2018 22:54:55
I agree with some regarding Bartley, think the injury a concern and would look elsewhere, also chances gone now Swansea relagated. We do need a experienced CB that we can get a season or two out of, then hope young lads can progress. Not sounding good regarding transfer kitty, are we expecting another 6m payment for wood or is it over the next 10'years? Next season if lucky, be a mid table team, if don't buy CB/ striker, then relagation battle. Think rest of defense could be good and in midfield, we will have to see. Still need a striker though, would berihino be a good buy?


1.) 11 May 2018 10:49:54
Berahino and gayle could both be good buys. I mentioned it yesterday think Hernandez from hull would be a good option too, you're probably looking at about 5 or 6 million for him as their owners are worse than ours and are a bit crazy. Also think Michael dawson from hull good be a good signing for us, that harry Wilson they've had from Liverpool has been good, 7 goals abd 2 assists in 11 games since January loan, worth a raid imo

2.) 11 May 2018 16:52:34
Berahino? the lad hasn't scored for 2 years!

3.) 11 May 2018 19:28:40
We can't afford Gayle

4.) 11 May 2018 22:37:08
Would love gayle here. Natural finisher at this level. Just can't see him keeping his new teeth for long on a night out in leeds

I'd be happy with Blackman for GK, Foyth on loan from spurs and buy Bartley for 3.5mil ( cheap) , those 2 and Pontus with ailing and Pearce as wingbacks. Think midfield is taken care of but still feel a pacey winger be a bonus. Then try get kean from juve to go with Roberts. Also stating gayle from Toon is up for grabs at 9mil, that's a decent price as last pre season he was about 18mil? I think we all getting slightly nervous and frustrated at lack of dealings. Rads has brought in a top manager and paying him very well, but he needs funds. I was so excited a month ago, we got bielsa and all the gossip of his ties with Poch and pep, surely he has to try them for a couple of their lads? Or has he seen something in the squad, maybe the under 23's, that has him holding out for, time will tell.


1.) 11 Jul 2018 11:01:25
I would be more than happy with Foyth, Bartley and Kean and I can see Bielsa getting the best out of the rest. I do believe that we have some really good players but they need coaching in the right way. MB knows his game ;-)

2.) 12 Jul 2018 06:49:07
Your all missing the point, small investors, small amount of cash, that's cheap players,



06 Jul 2018 09:50:35
Can't understand why not going all out to land Abel Hernandez, a quality striker and I think with Pablo or saiz pulling the strings behind him, could score a bag full. He is available on a free, pay him 40k P/W over 3 or 4 years ( 6-8mil) ? I feel better option than Vydra, who appears they want 13mil for and then whatever his wages are. Would then hope Roberts/Hernandez partnership would work and still have big Edmondson to develop. I am hoping lack of transfer activity is down to deals already in place with man City and spurs, still would like Foyth. This is a ride and wouldn't think rads would pay bielsa's wages and not invest funds to get promoted?


1.) 06 Jul 2018 12:01:06
Totally agree Shadwell. No point bringing in Gordon Ramsey to cook dinner, if you're just going to give him oven chips to cook with!

2.) 06 Jul 2018 14:02:20
Excellent post Bright, my candidate for post of the close season.



29 Jun 2018 23:47:34
Don't know too much about baker but seems to have potential according to some lufc fans, just wondering why Chelsea or boro didn't keep or sign? I am happy with bielsa and we need to trust his way Bielsa doing his cull and training with approx 15 and others else where, has he upgraded any of the young ones, likes of kun, Clarke, Rey, Dalby, Edmondson etc? Heard he sent Klich and Ideguchi to under 23's? Also seems like crap reporters, last week we getting 4 man City players and was excited with that prospect but now hearing no players leaving from there? Still need 1-2 CB's, was hoping he would persuade Poch to loan us Foyth, hope that still happens but gone quiet. Seems we likely to sign 2nd Chelsea player with GK now, we do need 2 quality GK's, so that is good. Not sure Vydra is 12mil+, still think I'd go for Hernandez. Hopefully things will happen next week


1.) 30 Jun 2018 01:45:38
Why not vydra and Hernandez?

2.) 30 Jun 2018 07:32:40
Agree Martyn let's show some ambition, there are going to be a lot of strong teams in the championship this season. Many are strengthening with good quality players. Applaud the new fitness regime with our players, God knows they needed it but we also still need players in positions identified as problem areas last season. Seeing we are chasing younger lads from chelsea etc don't look promising this season for Ortas ones for the future this season.

3.) 30 Jun 2018 10:23:15
Might be totally unrelated but I believe that Leeds financial year ends on 30th June therefore transfers prior to this date may have had an impact on FFP. Just a thought.

4.) 30 Jun 2018 10:45:45
Maybe something in that Notts, let's hope it is something like that and we can at last strengthen the team.

5.) 30 Jun 2018 11:02:01
I think you're bang on there Notts. Quite clearly playing the book keeping game!

6.) 30 Jun 2018 14:27:36
Oui mon brave The answer, Piorot feels, will all be revealed next week. This is what happens stuck at home with a wife in charge of the remote control.

7.) 30 Jun 2018 14:39:01
Torture mate, separating a man from his tv remote. Mine tried to put love island on tv last night, thank God the football back on today. Best thing to do is to give her a few bob and let her go shopping, less painful.



16 Jun 2018 00:12:00
Happy days, ? 20mil of funds for bielsa to get his type of players, sure he has some idea who and what positions he needs covering. It's said he has watched lots of last seasons games and still signed, maybe he watched the under 23's? I feel an experienced Gk to help PF, maybe Speroni, Gunn or stockdale? Cud have a few good wing backs in ailing, Coyle and Pearce. Hope now Pontus happy with clubs so called intent, bring in a quality Cb, like sound of spurs kid on loan, has O'Connor as back up ( sell cooper ) Then he has a job sorting middle of park, I still hoping Ideguchi is class? Then see if he can use and improve Klich, vieira, Forshaw, alioski saiz' and Pablo. Bring in another winger and work hard on sacko, he has potential but needs help. Also think Ekuban worth working with, had bags of pace, works hard and yes b4 people say, he can't score. He did score lots overseas and maybe with bielsa to help, he may come good. Then we have Roberts, who unknown yet and if funds stretch to another one or 2 strikers like Abel/Vydra? He also has a few young ones that could develop with his guidance, I am very excited and hope we attack more this season. I guess I will be getting up in the wee hours and watching from Australia, may be worth that 4am coffee and no sleep. Lastly well done rads/Orta/Kinnear, it's a gamble but worth it if can get promoted and I think bielsa can attract great players.


1.) 16 Jun 2018 08:22:33
When interviewed for the West Ham job it is reported that Bielsa told their board that he would only want to keep 8 players and replace the rest. Do you really think that Bielsa will think that Sacko and Ekuban are good enough when plenty of supporters know they are not ?

2.) 16 Jun 2018 08:44:35
Some good points shaddy. But as far as sacks and ekuban are concerned. Have you heard the phrase “ can’t polish a turd”

3.) 16 Jun 2018 11:26:44
Slough. But you can cover one in glitter!

4.) 17 Jun 2018 01:23:32
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.



13 Jun 2018 22:55:57
Very excited about bielsa, think it could be a great work by rads and hopefully great for our club. I know he doesn't know this league but it could be an exciting ride watching the future leeds team, like the sound of his attacking formation. Also feel he has a big name in football and will have a pull on some big name players. Hope rads gives him the cash to buy them, he has to if he wants us to be like wolves and get promoted with flair, the rewards are huge. He also has respect of pep and poch and may have pull to snag a couple of their fringe players? Get in CB, fancy GK Gunn, pacey winger and one or 2 of the mentioned forwards.


1.) 14 Jun 2018 07:46:25
Agreed Shadwell, radz needs to make funds available to him.

Agree, bring him back and give him next season, there was a lot of hype about him. He got injured and never got a chance, maybe a new manager will get beat out of him.

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?

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.
