Radz now talking about adopting a similar model to Wolves using his contacts with super agents. Loans of top upcoming talent with mandatory purchase if/when we get promoted. He is said to be seeking approval from someone (possibly the FA or FL) before going for it.


1.) 14 Mar 2018 14:37:48
Yes please, works for wolves. But if his contacts are of the same quality to Orta then don't bother!

2.) 14 Mar 2018 15:42:34
Why do you need permission? Wolves did it and didn't get punished so what's the problem.

3.) 14 Mar 2018 17:25:47
Thier not Leeds. Leodis

4.) 14 Mar 2018 17:41:30
He isn't after permission as such, he just wants to make sure he doesn't break any rules of the FL, FA or PL

5.) 14 Mar 2018 18:05:04
Slaggs em off then copy em? Mmmmmm

6.) 15 Mar 2018 04:39:17
Absofrickingexactly Martyn! I've lost all respect for Radz. Sad thing is he's still our best owner in 14 years!

7.) 15 Mar 2018 09:55:40
Yeah. I got to be honest. He was better when he shut up and got on with business. He has now got orta and has made some naive decisions expecting it to be easy to get out this league. Now seems to slag everyone else off to detract from his own inadequacies. Losing faith.

8.) 16 Mar 2018 07:15:08
and how is he going to fund bringing in all these players? There's no way on earth he will be able to get rid of all our dross, they are all on long contracts, there agents will advise them to stay at leeds, hardly any will command a fee, which leaves us with sending them out on loan options (luke Murphy scenarios all through our squad) . I can see the club moving sideways at best next seaaon



12 Feb 2018 14:52:09
Bit disappointed with the game on Saturday but didn't really expect much from it tbh - we shot ourselves in the foot conceding so early and then it was always an uphill struggle. at least we kept 11 men on the pitch for once but it underlined the amount of work that still needs to be done to make us competitive in this league.


1.) 13 Feb 2018 10:18:51
I think we would have been better off with 10 if O'Kane had decided just to sit on the side of the pitch instead of playing. He had a hand in both of their goals and offered nought going forward.



06 Feb 2018 11:31:03
Hecky has arrived at ER ahead of his imminent move.


1.) 06 Feb 2018 14:46:00
Signed him up till the end of next season . good move I say :)



04 Feb 2018 21:55:02
Apparently we have opened talks to get an ex manager back - Hockaday!


1.) 04 Feb 2018 22:28:20
I remember the Hockaday watermelons comment 😉



30 Jan 2018 22:28:26
Tyler Roberts done deal tomorrow from West Brom. 19 year old forward.


1.) 30 Jan 2018 22:51:03
This lad will be thrown straight into the first team, too. good signing!

2.) 30 Jan 2018 23:48:06
One for the.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 06:51:46
Wow. Bet cultural are peeved he's not going there or is there no more room on the team bus

4.) 31 Jan 2018 09:50:28
They can't pronounce his name martyn!

another win for the u23s last night this time against high flying Ipswich. Maybe there is something in this 'one for the future' business after all?


1.) 20 Mar 2018 15:18:14
If the future's tomorrow Alf, I am with you.

2.) 20 Mar 2018 15:30:51
Are we adding the "future is now " name of Dalby to the list.

3.) 20 Mar 2018 17:19:17
There were a lot of positives from the lads last night, but there is a massive gulf between that level, and the championship. The game was very open, and free flowing, which was entertaining, but not like the mayhem and hustle of the league. I'd bring Dalby into the training squad for experience, but not yet into the matchday squad.



17 Mar 2018 19:20:03
Disappointing today but we need to learn to take our chances and tighten up defensively. Once again paying the price for not having adequate defensive cover.


1.) 17 Mar 2018 19:26:29
More like adequate defence full stop. The cover is garbage but so is the front line Pontus aside.

2.) 17 Mar 2018 20:47:22
Agree to both there. I've pointed to Pontus a few times when he's been playing poorly, but think that a one man centre back pairing makes it difficult for him. He showed last season, that alongside someone else solid, he will perform. He is prone to mistakes himself, but we seem to be making them every single game for the last 18 matches now!



15 Mar 2018 21:27:37
Sounds like Roofe could be out for a while. We have had rotten luck with injuries this season.


1.) 15 Mar 2018 22:32:53
Such a shame as he was playing so well. he's garbage, we need to get rid of him and a load of other players who are at his level, trouble is they are all on long contracts, be impossible to shift them all

2.) 16 Mar 2018 01:05:53
I think garbage is a bit harsh. He may not be a starter but has a few goals and works hard.

3.) 16 Mar 2018 07:10:46
He's rubbish Aus, just saying it as I see it, only missed 2 away games all season and what I see of him and others are players who are way short of championship standard, o'kane, Pennington, cooper, Phillips, sacko, cibiski, Grot, felix, still unsure on lassoga and alioski as they flatter to deceive more often than not. doesn't leave us much does it? . that's just an honest opinion of what I have seen this season. and what's happened to Viera? . he seems to get knocked off they ball easily now, gets caught wrong side of his man all the time but more worryingly is he doesn't seem to be able to pass the ball over 5 yards without giving it away

4.) 16 Mar 2018 08:11:44
Roofe only works hard to hide in games

5.) 16 Mar 2018 08:44:55
Get rid leeeeeeds? And who do you think we can afford to replace him and the others

6.) 16 Mar 2018 09:39:38
Fair dos leeds. U see them more than me! Not a lot left at all mate. If i were to be honest. i'd keep goalie in next year. Ayling berahdi. Poss janson. Forshaw saiz and hernandez and aloiski as sub. Nobody else would def be worth it.

7.) 16 Mar 2018 11:34:27
This is one of the pressures of being a manager, to weigh up, in the remaining games and on the training pitch the merits of every player on the payroll. Then decide who he wants. There will be straight yes to some but it seems there will be many others that he will have to decide if he can turn them around. If he thinks that there is more in there to come out. That's the hard list and the big gamble. Then there's the waste of space list, easy, get rid. We can offer him our lists (and we will) but the point is, only he and his team know the whole picture. Only he and his team live or die by those lists. So we have to, again, put our faith in the Manger of our team and back his judgement. We have to, again, live in hope and again; March On Together.

8.) 16 Mar 2018 18:38:12
Nobody martyn, we won't be able to offload any as they are all on decent contracts, and that's why I believe we will be in big trouble moving forward. if we need to sell to buy how many genuine saleable assets do we have 4-5?. if we sell them do we then start from scratch? . and if so who decides what players to buy with the money raised from them? . like I say, it's worrying, hiw people can disagree all them players I listed are below average beggars belief. we are 13th and lucky to be there if we are honest

9.) 16 Mar 2018 21:08:14
I seem to recall Roofer being in our top 3 combined scorers / assisters. obviously that stat doesn't make him great, but he's performed for us this season.

10.) 16 Mar 2018 21:24:17
All you Roofe fans, tell me what I am missing ?

11.) 16 Mar 2018 23:21:21
He's performed bright? . give your head a shake lad, performed my arse, he has got on the end of a few things, we bought him from league 1,and that's his standard, tell me how many in the top 6 he would get in there team, and for that matter any of the other players we have. maybe 2?



13 Mar 2018 22:00:33
Radz isn’t covering himself with glory with his recent comments - starting to look a bit foolish


1.) 13 Mar 2018 22:28:13
I think it's just his Latin brain not engaging with his Latin mouth. A more level headed version of Cellino. And the common Denominator - Italian! I think owners as a race should keep their heads down and their mouths shut.



12 Mar 2018 13:49:54
Really paying the price now for our lack of vision when it came to finding defensive cover. the loss of Ayling a massive blow but all season we have struggled at CB because we never bought a partner for Jansson. Injuries have compounded the problem a bit but really we have been too light in that position because we haven't got enough depth in the squad there.


1.) 12 Mar 2018 14:15:38
No s#@t sherlock

2.) 12 Mar 2018 15:01:10
Several names were mentioned Alf, I wonder what happened to them. There was even one, a fellow Swede I believe. There is even a newbie called Struijk who is supposed to be handy maybe we will see him before season end.

3.) 13 Mar 2018 02:32:44
I think it's Heland, the Swedish guy, and he's out of contract in the summer so you never know

Warnock did the best he could with no funds provided by our useless chairman. He wouldn't have chosen half of those players himself if he had any choice.

Roberts was fit when we bought him and then picked up a knock - he wasn’t intended to not play I don’t think

Ive thought the same about Sacko - all managers seem to start out with him really enthusiastic and believe he can do a great job (which he probably could if he had an end product) but then slowly realise he is about as much use as a condom to a eunuch.

Dalby bagged another 2 last night as well Martyn so why not? Grot and Dalby to lead the line?

He has been out for a long time and has low confidence but he is getting into the positions and snatching at his shots a bit. I reckon if he takes his time and gets his first league goal for us it will reduce his nerves and he will come good. he had 2 clear chances on Saturday to score and wasted them but if he had been more composed they would have been in the onion bag. I think he just needs to score to get the monkey off his back.

the info above does not tell the full story - it is just about one of his companies but there is far more info than that we would need before people start drawing conclusions. For example, he sold his company, MP and Silva for $1billion. I doubt he has fritted all of that away already.

So just the 10 new additions to the first team eh Leodis? when you put it like that we’re practically promoted already!
