I'm sorry that TC didn't work out. He may have let himself down but he has also been let down by the players and the recruitment. But he has gone and Radz has taken action, let's hope he also puts the performance pressure on the others as well. The next appointment is an important one, so possibly recruit on a temporary basis, if the guy delivers the play offs in the time left he stays on, if not there is more time to evaluate him or other options. If we are going with someone with success and knowledge of our league, not sure any of Strachan, O'Leary or SG meet all of that now. Definitely not Maclaren!




07 Jan 2018 21:26:53
Not bothered about losing today but disappointed that many of the fringe players or returning players didn't take the opportunity they were given. OK, TC can take the blame for picking them but these are players who should be fighting to establish themselves as regulars. The other real damage is Saiz getting himself sent off when we really need him. The only good thing is that it highlights the need to strengthen both to improve the first 11 and the squad.




23 Dec 2017 22:57:53
The Middlesborough decision on Monk is interesting. You can criticise him for his style but then again, the board should have known what they were buying. A dodgy start but then won 6out of 10,wins today and gets sacked! 9th in the league. Clubs should take note if Birmingham City, not much more than a year ago on the fringes of playoffs with Gary Rowett, fire him, appoint Zola, disaster, spent loads of money on Harry to stay alive, sacked him and now bottom of the table and where is there x manager, guiding Derby County into the playoffs! I Hope that our chairman's support and praise for TC works. I think we are really building something that is going in the right direction, always need to keep fine tuning and I would like to see at least two quality additions in Jan, but sometimes patience and time works!


1.) 24 Dec 2017 08:38:39
Spanishleeds, I hope and pray ever game and hope that works, patience is Leeds fans second name.

2.) 24 Dec 2017 09:34:03
Spanish great post, I think it was more the way Middlesbrough were playing and not to mention the cash they spent . I do think it's Wolves and Derby for the top two, but we do have a window so my views could change . For us play-offs more than possible .

3.) 24 Dec 2017 12:14:55
Middlesbrough want an instant return to the prem and thought Monk was the answer. Just shows even with a large spending spree on players, Monk isn't the Great Manager he Thought He Was. He Left Leeds As We didn't Match His Ambitions. Never Nice to See Anyone Lose Their Job, But A Little Smile Today, He Will Pick Up A New Club As This sport rewards failure of you are a manager of coach. As to our club, quietly putting some points on the board. One game at a time, definately need to strengthen for the play off push. Happy Christmas fellow whites, m. o. t

4.) 24 Dec 2017 12:15:25
I feel our team are a good, top of middle, team. Not quite challenging for top two but of the nearly rans we are top of the pile. Of course 2/3 quality additions could change all that. Whether that comes in January or even next summer I do not care (I do actually but will rely on TCs good judgement) . PS However I will be more than happy with a long string of 1-0s to the end of the season!

5.) 24 Dec 2017 12:57:53
At the moment I would say Wolves are destined for the top 2 but, looking at our next half a dozen games, they are all winnable. Following those we are down to the nitty-gritty, Cardiff, Blunts, Bristol, Derby, Brentford, boro, Wolves. I reckon 15 or more points from that 7 games and we're in with a shout :) as ever . the eternal optimist MOT . ALAW

6.) 24 Dec 2017 17:06:29
Spanish No more complicated than Boro wants Pulls now he's available. They're upgrading so Monk had to go.

7.) 26 Dec 2017 12:42:16
George the oracle does it again ! :)

8.) 26 Dec 2017 14:04:16
Spot on George, when you gaze into your magic ball can you still see David Oleary on the M62 in his taxi or has he parked up for crumb? Merry Christmas.

9.) 26 Dec 2017 18:00:35
It’s a results business most of the time and any new job is a risk really. Didn’t work out for Monkey at the ‘Boro but it’s a tough place. Best of luck to him in his next job as long as he doesn’t do as well as the Mighty Leeds Utd



23 Dec 2017 12:41:48
Another tough game today, one of those that could easily trip us up. Hoping the great crowd and the show of scarves will see us through, another tough 1-0!But that will take us to the half year point and I think a fair reflection of where we are. The key period for me during the second half of the year will be Feb! We need to show that we can take more points of the top sides and that should be our focus for the Jan window. Been an interesting year for our great club and let's hope we can really show that in the second half. Merry Christmas everyone!


1.) 23 Dec 2017 12:59:19
I disagree. I think we are lucky to be still 7th. I don't see any real quality in this league other than wolves. But don't see us showing anymore consistency than the average and don't beat the teams that matter. We shall see how 2nd half pans out.

2.) 23 Dec 2017 16:33:37
What Aus, you don't wish your fellow fans a Merry Christmas, you don't think it is Christmas or you don't think we will win 1_0?Merry Christmas Fella enjoy the shiraz!

3.) 24 Dec 2017 08:41:53
Spanishleeds you got that spot on can you do the scores to end of season so I can do my bets, have a happy Christmas 🎄



24 Nov 2017 00:35:10
Just arrived back in the UK after a long and rough ferry journey from Spain so haven't seen the highlights yet. But 4-1 against the league leaders away, after 2-1 and then a red card, doesn't seem like the end of the world to me. I'm surprised that people think Radz will call time on that evidence. He wants TC to succeed, that means top six this year, his target and still not one that should be given up! I think the next two games are the important tests, we should be expecting to beat Barnsley and Villa are the type of team we need to be competing with for the playoffs. If we lose both those games, it could be a different story. But sooner or later we need to stick with a manager and let him build and i haven't given up on TC yet and i don't think the chairman has either.


1.) 24 Nov 2017 04:21:10
I think its good to be patient. But there are not too many chairmans of football clubs that would accept 7 losses 1 win. i'm hoping he carries on and turns it around but in my opinion, he is lucky to still be there. I haven't seen any evidence that he has the ability to turn it around. I think he is too light weight for this league. I think the team are capable of play offs. Think he lacks though. let's hope he proves me wrong.

2.) 24 Nov 2017 10:57:57
Agreed. let's preach patience, and hopefully, the ages of the 2 (new) signings underline the long term strategy of AR. Players maybe not ready now (altho if the situation demands? ) but can slot in next year or even the year after. My only question is, with all this young talent, why aren't we sitting on top of the academy league? I too think we should try everything to stick with the manager but Aussie as you say he doesn't seem to be capable of turning it around which is strange as the very reason he got the job was on impressing AR on how he would have turned around some of our previous losses. MOT.

3.) 24 Nov 2017 11:45:49
TC will not be leaving until the end of the season, the goal is play offs, but monk didn't make play offs and was allowed to continue, it wouldn't be financially sensible to sack a good manager. TC will stay, more good players will come, and Leeds will go up, one day.

4.) 24 Nov 2017 13:45:54
I disagree. I bet tc is gone by xmas.

5.) 25 Nov 2017 15:58:37
I'll take that bet, Aus? How much we talking? £100 say TC is our manager post Christmas. Would be confident in saying by end of Jan we will be top 4

Amidst all the doom and gloom, worth celebrating that under 23 win a bit! 5-1 against a side unbeaten since September. Pearce, quite rightly getting plaudits but signs of a team coming together there.


1.) 10 Feb 2018 10:45:50
Let's hope so.



09 Feb 2018 14:06:07
Development squad or under 23s leading 4-1 at half time. Perhaps some of that investment paying off? Sarkic, Rey, Balboa and Paudie with the goals, looks like good service from Pearce and some nice play from Clarke. Would be great to see some of these players making the jump and coming through.


1.) 09 Feb 2018 14:11:55
Wow. Thinking! .

2.) 09 Feb 2018 14:45:34
5-1 Pearce goal after a good run, he seems to have had a cracker.

3.) 09 Feb 2018 14:49:14
Sarkic off with a ankle injury on 23 mins

4.) 10 Feb 2018 00:20:27
Hmm. Technically Martyn is just stating a fact there, as Sarkic did go off before the end of the first half, so the thumbs down bemuses me?



09 Feb 2018 13:30:06
A lot of potential first team defensive cover being used in the development squad game today, strujik, Diaz, Rey and Paudie all in the team as is Pearce! That's 4 players listed as centre backs! Alpo Halme is not included, will he be on the bench tomorrow. Have I missed anyone? Who is our defensive cover going to be?


1.) 09 Feb 2018 18:36:12
We're playing a back 2 this week, 2 midfielders, a number 10 and 5 up front :)



06 Feb 2018 14:30:35
A positive view for the weekend and beyond. We're going to have a manager like a kid in a toy superstore. Each week, for the next few weeks he's going to get a new toy to unwrap from suspension or injury and get the chance to play with them with all the rest of his new toys! More than that, first game up is against Sheffield, another team he must have hated a bit growing up! And we are in front of the tv cameras . What an opportunity to mark a mark. Seriously we are going to have a boss, pleased to be where he is and seeing everything around him and every player as a positive. A fresh start, let's get up for it!


1.) 06 Feb 2018 15:00:53
Hmmm, Spanish. the odd analogy there that made me uncomfortable, but agree in principle. 😳😱😂

2.) 06 Feb 2018 16:11:23
And crap when the novelty wears off which won't be long with a Leeds hater



06 Feb 2018 12:47:28
Just to be clear, this is what what the new boss actually said when talking about Leeds. "It was Leeds against Barnsley and the Leeds lads were always older than us and always used to kick smoke out of us. We hated Leeds and they hated us and that is how it was. You understand the support they have got and the size of the club and the tradition as it was always rammed down your throat with them bragging about it. "It is a team everyone loves to hate, but a big club with a big tradition. It is a big derby for us. " Now personally I don't have any problem with any if that . He loves football, he has been incredibly loyal to the club he supported as a kid, played for and managed but he has been prepared to leave all that behind to further his career, like any ambitious football manager would. Also he has talked honestly and passionately about how he felt as a kid and a manager. Lots of managers try to sit on the fence and be all things to all people, he doesn't . Give him a chance!


1.) 06 Feb 2018 13:00:27
Good post Spaniard

2.) 06 Feb 2018 13:01:09
Good lad Spanish. I know I bloody hate Man Utd as a kid a teenager and an adult. But given half the chance I’d manage or work for them at any level to enchance my career on a higher level . one thing for sure. He will know what it means for fans being a Yorkshire lad. Only positive. Give him a chance. 😂👍⚽️

3.) 06 Feb 2018 13:02:32
Spanish In on quick answer NO

4.) 06 Feb 2018 13:23:00
No to what Whiteman? No you are not going to give him a chance? What do you mean? You’ll stop going to Elland Road, tear up your season ticket? Give him a chance, judge him on what he does. I’m sure you’ll be prepared to criticism him on here if he doesn’t do well. He is the boss, english and from Yorkshire!

5.) 06 Feb 2018 13:45:01
Spanish I have bought in to the Radz 5 year plan will not be going again until, this crap have gone for good yes I say what I mean unlike some on this site, and yes I put my ticket in the bin, I-can not support this management any more Iam done with it. Happy now I suppose you and I may be wrong you don’t go and only support Leeds on a site like it put your money in like true fan who have gone to every match for the last 50 year who have spent there hard earned cash the you mite see where I am coming from

6.) 06 Feb 2018 13:58:29
Whiteman no one can deny your a true fan, and passionate which is good, personally i think you are wrong on all sorts of levels but respect what you say. I can't believe you are not giving him a chance but as a fan who pays money you have the right to do so (I did with hockaday and would of with McClown) however do not throw ticket in bin, i will buy it off you for a tenner (good money for rubbish) and if I am right and Paul gets us playing better and winning we will both of had a right result, you money for nothing and me ticket to see leeds win which i haven't done since 2002!

7.) 06 Feb 2018 15:37:24
Bermondsey I would have sent you my ticket had I not already shedded it which I did some weeks ago when I posted that I was done with traveling all day to watch no fight from our team and that I had bought in to Radz 5 year plan, as long as he’s and his managers are thereI will not buy another one or travel as I have done for 50 years . I will now become a armchair supporter. I am very unhappy in the way our club is being run and won’t give it to this bunch of crooks,

8.) 06 Feb 2018 16:16:40
Sad to hear that whiteman.

9.) 06 Feb 2018 17:26:27
do understand Whiteman, I have spent many a 500 mile round trip and 1000's seeing us lose and worse not even try or turn up. I feel your pain and understand. I do think you will be buying a ticket again soon as think heck will be the fella to turn us around

Cultural are just outside the relegation zone and there is concern that they could fall into the Spanish third, not what their investors want. It will be really interesting to see what impact he has as he will probably get a lot if game time, perhaps we have a recall option?

Perhaps that's the secret Aus, don't watch the games! Better for your blood pressure. I think earlier in the season when you weren't able to see the games we went on a good winning spell! Yesterday was a typical leeds nailbiter, 1-0 lead and six minutes extra time! Stay away from the tele next saturday!

16 Dec 2017 15:28:51
Just a difference of opinion Aus! don't think we are losing games or points because of the goalkeeper. Our problem is that we have not been able to beat the teams leading the way at the top of the table and lack consistency, not the goalies vault. If he is as bad as you claim, he willl be replaces so we shall see. But he's a Leeds player wearing the shirt and I wish him all the best and hope he can prove you wrong!

Bright you’re right, good pressing play and some really confident creative football. Martyn, it’s good fun football and better for my mental health at the moment than watching the first team! I wonder if any championship team has ever dropped its entire first team and fielded the under 23 team instead! We would probably win the game and then get fined a fortune and docked points for fielding a weakened team! They are playing again on Friday vs Cardiff, 7pm I think, worth watching if you have the chance.

Because I’ve been at a loss about what to say about the first team, I have been watching more of the under 23s. Firstly tonight’s game was a great watch, good carefree attacking football and secondly you can really see how this squad of players is developing. Some good quality play, good build up, don’t know the stats but we could have had a lot more goals. Still a bit hung ho, but I can see some more of these players coming through. I think the strategy might be working more with the development squad than with the first team!

Well said PA, great result for the under 23s, let’s hope that strategy is coming good. I wonder if the new boss saw the game, might have given them a bit of encouragement. I can understand how people fell, it’s been a year of change and a roller coaster ride of optimism and failure. Let’s move on, fresh start, new opportunities. Still lots to be excited and hopeful about.
