I friend I know works with the marketing team at Elland Road. Apparently new owners possible as links with a " locally based" major airline and holiday group grow by the hour. A Sticking point is around changing the shirt colour to match the colours of the planes described as " ruby" by the Chief Executive. As is common these days, a name change for the stadium would be likely, " the low fare finder fun bowl " is the early favourite.

Press conference called for 11.30 am this morning. fellas.

The Newell's Old Boys English Twitter feed caught a few people out as well, saying Bub was returning as DoF for next season, follow the link to GOTCHA 😁😁😁😁.

9.) 02 Apr 2019 09:14:20
Good one Spanish.



02 Mar 2019 01:19:34
I think Tuesday hurt the players! The response was fantastic. Third game in less than a week, that's not a team tiring or fading away. Can anyone not believe after that set of answers!

To me it shows how much the players want it and how much they want it for Bielsa!


1.) 02 Mar 2019 07:09:27
Great shout Spanish think that sums it up what a night at Elland road.

2.) 03 Mar 2019 11:38:05
They were hurting

He put the same team out with the message

I believe in you, put it right

& they did

Here endeth the lesson.



28 Jan 2019 19:56:44
I knew that if we were patient enough and kept taking the blue pills, that something big would pop up and take the attention away from Soygate! I'm not being hard on Big Alan but I think Penisgate is bigger! Bit of a cock up posting photos of your asset on Twitter in error! Easy mistake Big Al, I've done it a few times myself with messages to Fat Frank and the Vicar! Cum on everyone now there's a new scandal to talk about!

Me too. Havnt a clue what you lot talking about.

Leo and Martyn Type in to your preferred engine of search "Alan Hardy penis".

7.) 29 Jan 2019 15:04:01
Been a bit picky George but it's not like he's bringing the game into disrepute is it? Any way the efl are too busy looking at ways to punish teams that don't break any laws. And lastly why are you typing 'alan hardy penis' into your search engine George?

8.) 29 Jan 2019 15:36:01
Martyn I didn't but you did 😆😆.

9.) 29 Jan 2019 15:49:05
Actually George I didn't need to as I only got as far as Alan har and it came up. No punt ment.

12.) 29 Jan 2019 17:39:18
He would have turned round for the piccy to Harvey 😉.

13.) 29 Jan 2019 18:47:20
What a balls up, count himself very lucky he wasn’t wearing binoculars at the time! Still think Harvey will go on him though.



25 Jan 2019 21:18:51
Good luck to Will Huffer, months loan to Barney, national league. Could even be involved in an FA Cup tie on Monday. Good experience for him. Imagine that means Miazak plays for the under 23s. Again good run out for him. Unless the plan is for Bailey to play at under 23s for game time.


1.) 25 Jan 2019 22:36:48
Would he be cup tied?
Not sure if he was on the bench for us and if that would even matter. Anyone know?

2.) 26 Jan 2019 09:46:18
There was an FA Cup specific rule that said that you weren’t cup tied if you were on the bench and didn’t appear. I’m assuming that’s still in place anyone know?

3.) 26 Jan 2019 11:41:28
Probably a clause saying unless it's Leeds then even the tea lady counts.

4.) 27 Jan 2019 01:32:13
The Barnet manager (only Tony Currie's nephew) reckons the England coaches think highly of him :) another one for the future.

5.) 27 Jan 2019 07:51:01
I like Huffer, he talks and shouts a lot, whoever is in front of him. Think he could grow into a very good keeper.

6.) 27 Jan 2019 13:37:41
Sounds like my missus. Talking and shouting I mean.

7.) 28 Jan 2019 01:19:19
Is she not a keeper then Corky? Best for you she doesn't read this :)

8.) 28 Jan 2019 20:29:29
Said over a year ago future England player.



17 Jan 2019 11:18:50
Welcome Kiko! For me this is a world class appointment. Obviously a skilful player capable of the Bielsa way but more than that, coming from immersion in one of the worlds greatest clubs. It's a classy appointment that brings real strength and confidence to the GK group. This could be a massive benefit to us until the season end but also into the future. Well done all involved!

And to Bailey, thank you for everything you have done this year. Take up the challenge and use this as a motivation to up your game and learn with him. if you keep your place because you show you are better than him, then good for you!

Marcelo said any appointment has to be an improvement on what we have, Kiko clearly is.


1.) 17 Jan 2019 11:36:44
Good to have some positive news. Welcome aboard Kiko!

2.) 17 Jan 2019 15:10:23
We used to sarcastically remark that an Orta signing was "One for the future" meaning they were of no use now and we could just hope that they may come good some time in the never never. Now we can remark that they are "One for the future" meaning that we can use them now but they will still be up to the mark once we achieve promotion.

3.) 17 Jan 2019 15:41:21
I agree Kiwi. I’m surprised there hasn’t been more reaction to this appointment. To me it really is a very positive signing. Without being unkind, the defense will now have someone with experience that they can look up to. This guy has mixed it at the highest levels. Ok bench or third more recently, but still involved in the training sessions and training and learning with two of the best in the world.

It will raise Baileys game, like Hernadez with Clarke and Bailey will also be able to help Kiko with Championship experience.

Are people happy with this as a sign of investment in one player? Not asking about the whole window but just this one addition?

4.) 17 Jan 2019 17:07:40
To be honest, Spanish, I think, even if we get no more through the door (which I'm hoping isn't the case) , Kiko plugs the biggest gap which has been most apparent so far this season. BPF has been excellent for his years and given we're the team with a target on our backs, however, Kiko will be the loudest voice in that box and command our back line. Bailey will kick on in coming years, I have no doubt about that.

Would love to see a winger or two, throughly underwhelmed by Harrison, but loads of potential in the kids coming through and if the past week has convinced me of anything, it's that I have 100% faith in Bielsa and his plans!


5.) 17 Jan 2019 17:29:42
Agree behave, and have a bit of faith in Harrison, looked better over the last few weeks. Honestly think JC is giving a bit of a encouragement to the other wide men. You don’t only learn from those around you who are older. He is showing the way in the wing and perhaps encouraging the others to drop their shoulder a bit and give it a go.

6.) 17 Jan 2019 17:32:06
KC welcome to the sunshine band we will march on together.

7.) 17 Jan 2019 19:32:04
You’re right Spanish, it’s a huge signing, and rather than BPF being disappointed, he should look at it as a great opportunity to develop with someone who has been coached by, and alongside some of the best in the world. He and Huffer should both move forward in leaps and bounds over the next couple of years!

8.) 17 Jan 2019 21:55:54
I see what you did there Boston! 👏🏻.

Interesting story in the press about Liverpool having an interest in Leif Davis and a quoted value of 4 million pounds. We signed him from Morecambe for an undisclosed fee but I'm sure I heard a figure of 400k mentioned, with add on clauses I'm sure.

Clubs like Liverpool will have lots of scouting lists and possible names and I'm sure he is just one that they have had a look at. It does say a lot about the way in which the transfer market is working. Talent picked up and passed on up the leagues.

Interesting dilema if we do get a proper offer. Realistically, will he get much game time next year for us? Our share of 4 million pays a few bills!


1.) 24 May 2019 10:33:46
I say sell for 4 mill. He has potential but so have quite a few of our U23s. He is unproven and needs to fulfill that potential yet.

2.) 24 May 2019 10:47:49
My mate says they have got some talent in their Academy so he doesn't understand this story

Personally I would definitely accept an offer, as like you, I don't think he will get much game time and has a whole host of left backs in front of him
and reading Spanish's texts this season Odour is there or there about too
And coming back from loans are Denton and de Bock

I saw we are linked with a £2m move for Lowe of Portsmouth. "A goalscoring winger in League One". I do t understand why we would be forking out that sort of money when we have Wilks coming back from Doncaster and he is "A goalscoring winger in League One"

" We will have to run a difficult summer in terms of the transfer market"

Is there really anyone on here who didn't think it was going to be a difficult summer after missing out on promotion?

We can all snipe from the sidelines with absolutely no responsibility for anything that happens, he and his staff can't!

We have a manager who really we shouldn't have who is effectively on a one year rolling contract and who is wanted by other clubs.

We have 3/ 4 players wanted by premiership clubs and who could all, not unreasonably welcome the opportunity to play in the premier league and earn good money.

We have a shed load of loanees returning to Elland Road needing to be paid by us unless we can find them other clubs!

Which part of all that wasn't going to be difficult?

Please find this " all Leeds" fan with billions of pounds that they can afford to throw at running a football club at a loss and within the fair play rules! There really seems to be a shortage of them coming forward so far.

For me Radz, Orta and Bielsa have done a lot right but made some key mistakes and although that has produced the best football for ages, a team chasing automatic promotion for all of the season and a play off place, we missed out on the big prize. But it's been a hell of a lot better than most before it for 15 years!

Clarke will go if Clarke, his parents and Harte want him to go and it's going to be very hard to stop him if that is the case. Just as happens to virtually every other club in the land! And if we are going to sell him why would we not want to get as much money for him as we can?


1.) 23 May 2019 09:56:56
Surely if you were Clarke you'd rather stay at a championship club, than move to a club that's in the champions league final (possibly champions) earn 6 times as much money and live in that there London. Also be able to punch well above his weight in the girlfriend stakes. Ooh, it would be a tough decision to make! 😂😂.

2.) 23 May 2019 10:40:31
Norwich sold the Murphy brothers and Maddison in recent season

They just got promoted!

Although I like Clarke he is far from the finished product and not nearly as effective in games as others have been.
I would be fine with his sale (although £10 seems a low price when the above transfers are looked at, and a Bristol city fullback has just gone for £13m) if I saw it re-invested in the out and out goalscorer that we obviously need.

I would rather Clarke sold than Roofe or Phillip's

I think Jansson's actions in the last Villa game mark him out as a possible SELL too. Loved what he did, but the manager saw 10 other players working to his plan. Pity, but we need 11 working to the plan to have any chance.

3.) 23 May 2019 11:50:50
Well said Spanish - too many neg heads on here who seem to want to go back to the Bates days. They should be careful what they wish for.

4.) 23 May 2019 12:59:36
What evidence is there of Bielsa wanted by other clubs. Just asking.

5.) 23 May 2019 13:42:56
I agree Spanish and it is not a given that a massive amount of spend means promotion. Both Norwich and Sheff Utd had a net spend less than £6m whilst Forest probably spent 5 times that. Although you don't have to spend loads, it is important that you get quality for what you do spend (not easy to achieve) . Our net spend was circa £2.5m which is not a lot and we also did not utilise the loan market sufficiently. Whilst it is not necessary to spend loads this has to be tempered with the point that it is also difficult to achieve promotion on the cheap. On this point I feel that we fell between two stools.

6.) 23 May 2019 14:37:35
If his heart not in it, forget it we only want those who want to be at Leeds no matter how good they think they are.

7.) 23 May 2019 14:43:20
Danum, of course if I was in his position I’d stay at Leeds, buy a detached in hanging heaton and marry a local girl!

8.) 23 May 2019 14:48:10
Agree Notts and Axe. Wex “ evidence” always difficult to find but the Spanish press here are linking him with two clubs possibly interested. Always difficult to know until something concrete happens. I think this year Bielsa has shown both what he can do and can’t do! But it did keep us in contention for promotion until the last but one game of the season. That might appeal to some.

9.) 23 May 2019 15:00:35
Sounds just right and be happy.

10.) 23 May 2019 15:14:33
I'm afraid you're in a market now where you either spend big and get the right or wrong players or you twiddle your thumbs and definitely get the wrong players.

Pukki was a one-off, that was THE season of his distinctly average career. Unfortunately for us, Norwich had the inner belief to ride the wave.

Norwich and Sheff Utd have both spent more than Leeds in the past three seasons combined, that is a fact. As have the rest of the top 6.

11.) 23 May 2019 15:23:26
Whiteman, it’s always healthier to be happy! Happy that we were in contention for so long, happy we made the playoffs, happy about the under 23s and under 18s but critical of the failure to make the most of the opportunity we had and wanting to really understand why. It’s not impossible to feel both!

12.) 23 May 2019 15:24:36
Wex just to add to the Spanish stories they are saying that a number of clubs are waiting to see what happens with Bielsas discussions with Leeds but that there is some interest.

13.) 23 May 2019 16:29:20
RE Your reply to Danum.

I did exactly what you said!

Except I married a girl from Pudsey, and it was a semi!

Born and bred there. Hence my moniker. Knew you had a connection there from an earlier post (long time ago) .

Not there now, gone to warmer climes, but normally visit at Christmas and get my yearly visit to ER. Not this year though as No.2 son couldn't get tickets.


14.) 23 May 2019 16:34:54
Nice one Tewitiander.

15.) 23 May 2019 16:40:07
Tewit. You only got a semi? I'm surprised you married her!
Oh, you're talking about a house. Sorry! 😉.

16.) 23 May 2019 17:11:36

It was bow fronted!

Before you ask. both! 🤣🤣🤣🤣😁.

17.) 23 May 2019 17:59:27

18.) 24 May 2019 06:49:34
There once was a girl from pudsey who always wondered should she
But Tewit said yes and you know the rest
As she was such a lovely!

Good one Tewit! Where are you based now, is it Spain from memory?

Born in a house on consiston road, Hanging Heaton, Dewsbury, Batley, if anyone knows the area. My parents moved away when I was one but my grandparents lived and died there so always went back and went to Elland Road. Still have a very big soft spot for the area.

19.) 24 May 2019 13:03:17

Born on Coniston Road! I was born on Common Side.

When I married my Pudsey lass (not Diana Rigg) we moved to just off Bennett Lane, the other side to Coniston. Had all our kids there and still have our house there.

After having a very hectic working life, that entailed travelling world wide, I retired early. Not living in Spain, but in the next country north. Very very happy, content and enjoying the very quiet rural life. Drinking lots of wine, eating good food and watching Leeds electronically.

When I get over happy and need depressing I just try reading all the doom, gloom and totally negative posters on here, but found that it doesn't really work. So don't even bother with them anymore. Why do they do it? Maybe they are only happy when they are miserable (one of my Mum's favourite sayings) 😁

Maybe one day our paths will cross and we can have a pint or two, or three? The Peacock would be good before a Leeds game. Or maybe even in Hanging Heaton Cricket Club or the Fox and Hounds. 🍻🍻🍻

Enjoy your life mate, take care and stay happy.

MOT 💙💛 🍷🍷🍷.



22 May 2019 15:10:56
Whilst it's easy to criticise Radz for things he hasn't done or won't do in the future, let's look at two things we did do that cost money, buy Kiko and Bamford. I'm assuming we can agree that the responsibility for those recruitment decisions were Orta and at least approval from Bielsa. You could easily argue the the uncertainty caused by Kiko and the failure to produce when called on by Bamford, hit us very hard at key moments of the season. Pukki was a free transfer bought at the beginning of the transfer window, Bamford bought towards the end at a fee rumoured to start at 7 million and rise to 10. I agree with Alf, lots of fingers pointing at Radz and Bielsa this year but not so many at Orta who really gets to spend whatever money is available. If you have less money to spend its even more important that you spend it wisely!


1.) 22 May 2019 16:06:52
Ultimately all stops with Radz.

2.) 22 May 2019 16:09:25
But . the signing of a keeper from Real Madrid was considered quite a coup

hindsight and all that

Bamford can score goals. We’ve not seen what him at anything like his best

Knowing our luck we could sign messi and he’d hit a rough patch

Orta has picked up some gems ( see u23s) you won’t get them all

Signings are always a gamble, even old red nose signed some duffers.

3.) 22 May 2019 17:39:44
Casilly was considered a coup because he was on the books at Real Madrid - not for any other reason. he was third choice there though and barely made the bench. Just because you happen to be at a decent club does not mean you are a good player particularly when never played. He couldn't break into the Arsenal team either when he had very little competition leading me to think he is actually not a very good keeper at all. He has conceded some real shockers in the short time he has been with us and is a very weak link imo.

4.) 22 May 2019 17:48:28
Everyone on here knows I’m not a finger pointer, and I certainly won’t point at any of the 3, Bielsa, Rad, or Orta. For me, in my head anyway, I just look at the fact that we’ve had our best season for many, many years, watching some fantastic, progressive football, not just at senior level, but academy sides too. Plus we are also on the best financial footing we have been on for many years too. Totally get frustrations having got so close, and feel the same, but still feel we are moving in the right direction to get where we belong, and soon.

5.) 22 May 2019 18:04:56
Bamford has scored about 20 odd goals over the last 3 years.

6.) 22 May 2019 18:20:12
no player gets on real madrid books without being good and of quality

yes he made some mistakes, so did de gea and he is best in the world.

yes he comes off line like MB tells him too.

im not saying i ain't moaned at him, just saying he might come good

as for bamford he is not the best in league but far from the worst give him another year.

bamfords first season was better than woods and roofes so maybe he is not the scape goat some make him out to be

if we keep shacks and clarke, sell pontus, roofe and phillips we will have money to invest, spend it wisely and using sqaud we have and youth we will be champs next year

money don't get you out of this league, being stable, gritty and having a hard team does, ask cardiff.

7.) 22 May 2019 18:48:02
But if those key players are sold, do you honestly believe Radz will spend all the money on the squad?



16 May 2019 22:12:10
Just one final thought today on our status and fame as a club getting back to where we belong. We have to earn it. Since we were relegated from the premiership we have been in the championship play offs once before this year. Derby have been there 5 times, Ipswich 3 times and Blackpool twice! I know clubs have been in and out of other leagues but the list tells a story of the clubs competing at the very top of the league and we don't really feature. That's the size of the task after 15 years away. This year needs to be the start of a revival and not the end of really a one off attempt. We might knew our history and believe we should be back in the premiership but for many looking at the lists we are an also ran championship club. You need to keep knocking at the door before someone usually let's you in. Hopefully we have now set a standard that the club can work to. Automatic promotion or in the playoffs until it happens.




16 May 2019 12:39:41
Just to say, great discussions today but got to disappear soon and do some other things in my life! Bright, Al and Tewit, hope you are all alright guys and have recovered. We need you all back on here.

Bermondsey, if you write plays as prolifically as you post, you'll be the new James Patterson!

And one missing poster today, Georgie, hope you are ok. I'm sure you have been reflecting reading and you are about to unleash something!

Keep smiling everyone, enjoy and remember the good bits, there have been lots of them!


1.) 16 May 2019 13:26:04

Have a brilliant time, whatever you are getting up to. And thank you for your amazing contribution this season

And to every other poster, even those that I have stupidly had snipes with, I want to thank you all for every single post.
Due to work commitments, I am unable to get to more than a few games each season but the passion that oozes from each posting gives me goosebumps for my team and keeps me going

And my point if view.

If MB can do that with a Evans/ Christianson/ Heckingbottom created squad I can't wait to see what he does now that he can earmark the next incoming transfers

He identified James before Christmas, when no one was talking about him, and look how he has blossomed. Can't tell me that he was the only one MB has identified.

And James's improvements must show Radz that MB's judgment is worth backing
(I doubt MB had any say on the incoming transfers of Baker, Brown, Harrison or Bamford as they were too early in his reign)

I am sure a couple of our 1st team will be poached by PL outfits in 5he summer but if we can replace them and add 3 higher quality extras I can see it being another excellent season ahead.

2.) 16 May 2019 13:34:26
Just wait until you realise there is only one meaningful thing in your life (around August) . Enjoy you short hiatus Spanish.

3.) 16 May 2019 14:16:21
Take care Spanish - hope to see you next season.

4.) 16 May 2019 15:15:41
All the best Spaniard!
Trying to explain to my Bulgarian wife why I’m in such a mood is proving difficult.
This is going to take some serious time, and alcohol, to recover from.
Back next season as Champions! On, on, on fellas! 🍻🍻🍻.

5.) 16 May 2019 18:03:36

Good luck in whatever you are taking on. With your spirit I am sure you will succeed.

Though who will step up to the mark with your missing U23's reports? There are one or two promising understudies I think who might.

Enjoy life and take care.

MOT 💛💙 😁.

Chris CC, all businessmen will want to come to the club and make money and the money comes from being successful and having a team doing well that people want to watch. Most successful year since we returned to the championship. It’s a start not a finish. I think we could be in a lot worse hands than Radz and we have been.

Good post, the manager needs to decide if he wants to be here next year, if he can try to do it all again and what he will need to do it. Then the club needs to decide if it can give him what he needs. Some big decisions that shouldn’t be rushed but that also need to be made quickly in order to move on.

Swansea were always trying to hold on to their key players and only sell as much as they needed. I suspect that James was the last one that they wanted to go and from memory he wasn’t the only deal that fell through on the final day once they had what they needed. In the end it worked out for them, they have benefited from his play and they should get a much better fee for him, so you can see why they did it.

I love it when people say “ everyone could see what was needed” when obviously everyone couldn’t possibly Orta and Bielsa included! To me his biggest mistake is seemingly not managing Orta effectively or not ensuring he was managed effectively! At some stage the Director of football has to accept and take some responsibility.

Whiteman look at the positive side, whilst you are boycotting the club and refusing to go to the games or spend any money in the shop you must be saving loads of money! You can have some cracking nights! Radz being Chairman is your 5 year savings plan, better than an isa!
