If the rumours are right and we are after Harry Wilson (winger) what does that do to Daniel James (winger) plus the wingers we already have?


1.) 04 Mar 2019 18:16:32
Bub will teach them how to play in other positions 😉.

2.) 04 Mar 2019 19:56:18
Harrison goes back, Alioski isn’t necessarily best as a winger, Hernandez isn’t necessarily best as a winger and next year might benefit from rotation even more, Dallas more a squad player, Clarke should be a regular next year but depending on the league! Think we could cope with a couple!

3.) 05 Mar 2019 18:10:46
It was written in the currant bun. Don’t believe a word of it personally. Fishing.

4.) 06 Mar 2019 12:43:47
Leo I see Wilson more as a striker. Bub probably shares that view.



13 Feb 2019 22:06:03
Why are we chasing Daniel James. He was very ordinary tonight.


1.) 14 Feb 2019 00:14:56
Bielsa can turn ordinary looking players into great ones if they have the attributes he is looking for. James is ridiculously quick, Bielsa can work with the technical bits. Just need to make sure we don’t overpay for him.

2.) 14 Feb 2019 05:07:12
Good post Ali. He'll be worth just half the £12m in the summer due to his contract being closer to termination. Swans need the money, Jenks is out the way and James probably won't renew.

3.) 14 Feb 2019 08:18:06
He needs to get Sacko back and work his magic on him then ;-)

4.) 14 Feb 2019 08:59:15
Poor lad probably wanted to be in a white shirt

Imagine you’re offered a night with angelina jolie then at the last minute brad says no.

The bbq you’re all at two weeks later is going to be awkward

Same thing.

{Ed001's Note - erm he does play in a white shirt at Swansea mate. Just thought I should point that out....}

5.) 14 Feb 2019 11:49:23
Dammit Ed, you beat me to it 😊.

{Ed001's Note - sorry AL, I had a George moment of pedantry!}

6.) 14 Feb 2019 12:51:07
Ed001 Nowt wrong with that! I adore pedantry. Can anyone tell? 😆 Enjoy your day Ed001 and Staffy.

{Ed001's Note - I had not noticed mate....}

7.) 14 Feb 2019 15:38:04
I was going to say that pedants rule but George would get all pedantic and find issue with it 😁.



04 Feb 2019 21:59:27
In view of recent disappointments I hope MB, Orta and the team are taking time to identify as many game changers/ winners from the Championship as they can in the next few weeks. As he is so meticulous in his deliberations I hope he spends time poring over DVDs so that come the summer we can (depending on our situation) we can go after two or three top targets.


1.) 05 Feb 2019 10:52:02
Should have been done in January.

2.) 06 Feb 2019 18:54:23
Done in January we are up.



21 Jan 2019 11:50:09
How I hope I am wrong but I see the end of the season as a top six finish (would have taken that at the start of the season) and that we are 95% of a top two. It will take a good, final 10 days to change my opinion. Right now I am a little concerned (not panicking) about the recent number of losses we have incurred. It's down to MB to earn his corn and revitalise the team. The talent is there it's just been a little flat lately. Luckily (no disrespect) we have Rotherham coming up but all eyes are on the biggy/ 6 pointer on the second but that's just the start of a season defining month.


1.) 21 Jan 2019 14:27:43
Talent is their leodis and considering the injury ee have and suspensions of have expected this am out of losses. Talent doesn't keen experience and experience is as valuable as talent. Or something like that.

2.) 21 Jan 2019 18:10:27
We’re going up as champions

Keep the faith.

3.) 21 Jan 2019 21:09:56

4.) 22 Jan 2019 11:54:06
Wait till we beat Norwich then it might all be a bit clearer for you Leodis.



16 Jan 2019 13:51:47
Looks like Daniel James bid has hit the rocks. Not that upset really if the alternative is O'Dowda. The boy is the real deal. Would love to see hime on the wing in white. The lad has a fine touch, a sweet left foot and pace to burn. Go get him.


1.) 16 Jan 2019 16:09:47
Thanks for that Leodis, don’t know a lot about him. What I like is Bielsa clearly going for young talent that he can clearly develop on the pitch. Obviously alongside much needed experience for the gk position.

When Roofe comes back would you play him instead of, or with, Bamford. If its with, who would you drop?


1.) 17 Mar 2019 17:00:28

2.) 17 Mar 2019 18:41:43
Drop Harrison.

3.) 17 Mar 2019 18:42:15
I wouldn't but I think he'll drop Roberts.

4.) 17 Mar 2019 18:57:57
i think playing with ten wouldn't be much worse than playing with harrision, no idea how he is in the team.

5.) 17 Mar 2019 20:17:50
Harrison, not a prayer of getting in Citeh u23 never mind 1st string!

6.) 17 Mar 2019 20:18:42
Let's go for it if he his fit, him and Bamford upfront.

7.) 18 Mar 2019 17:27:31
Bub's not going to play 2 up front, Roofe on the wing instead of Harrison for me, having said that Harrison and Alioski have been pairing up together quite well (apart from Saturday)



17 Mar 2019 14:06:52
Thinking long term here.
With Bielsas track record I am beginning to feel a bit nervous about the future. There appears to be no commitment from him to stay but I think everyone will agree, that for us to progress, we need continuity. I also believe that at his age he should be looking to build a dynasty to be proud of. That route seems to be happening at the moment with all the young bucks firing away at the top of their league but we need the Captain to stay on and steer the vessel through dangerous waters. My fear is that no positive noises are coming out of Elland Road at the moment which worries me. Just as a precaution I would implore the board to find a Bielsa clone. A Bielsa Mark2 who can take the reins with little, if any, disruption in case the worse scenario happens. The alternative and obvious first choice is to nail down the man who has brought joy back to Elland Road. With one season under his belt his team will be a much stronger proposition next year and to the management, do not do a Wenger. In every close season he could make a long list of all the quality players that he nearly got! If Marcelo wants him, unless its silly money, go get him. Don't hide behind minutiae. Trust the man.


1.) 17 Mar 2019 14:25:15
The thing that worries me more, is that if we don't go up this season, will this group of players have the will/ desire/ fitness to play the Bielsa way next season (in the championship) . I've no doubt they would in the Premier league because he'd only keep players who he thought good enough and hopefully buy better ones than the players that unfortunately will be deemed not good enough for the top flight.

2.) 17 Mar 2019 14:45:57
leodis, great post but sorry to say where is the money coming from we couldn’t find it in January, MB will hopefully stay and build on what he has,

3.) 17 Mar 2019 16:19:43
Hopefully the experience and knowledge gained in this season will stand him in good stead to identify targets that will enhance our tilt next season. The likes of James, O'Dowda, Freeman etc and, without being silly, the financial backing of Radz. Failing the cash being forthcoming with preseason and early games we have the ability to blood some of the U23s who maybe cannot be thrown into the pressure cooker environment of a promotion charge.

4.) 17 Mar 2019 17:00:47
Think James is now out of our price range.

5.) 17 Mar 2019 20:24:16
New wealthy Owners might want to get involved if we go up, the potential in Leeds is sky high. Not sure if Radz has the dough for the big time, but we have to get there first.

6.) 18 Mar 2019 10:50:43
Yeah Feath, go get me a Red Bull!



16 Mar 2019 15:15:43
We do not have any bad players but we certainly have players who are not consistently good. We certainly have positions that can be strengthened come summer. It was that lack of quality and composure that did for us today. We had all the stats in our favour, we had all the posession, we had all the chances, but not the scoreline and, after all, that's the only one that matters.




16 Mar 2019 14:59:03
Go on, hands up who predicted 0-1? Still it's a loss but that's all it is. There are still a lot of points to play for.


1.) 16 Mar 2019 15:02:10
I feared it, but didn’t predict it. The longer the game went on, and the more chances we squandered, the more likely it was that they would nick it. Like you say though Leodis, we move on. Everything left to play for!

2.) 16 Mar 2019 15:11:33
Didn't predict it, but feared it. Gutted like most if not all on here but still in with a chance. Our weekend to take the flak, lots of haters outside our club will be relishing this result but would still rather be where we are than the chasing pack. Let's hope that's the last poor day at the office and get on with chasing the top two.

3.) 16 Mar 2019 15:52:22
very true mezzer I've had 7 phone calls and about 20 messages all from wall fans. but rather be where we are than where they are MOT.



13 Mar 2019 11:42:23
I think the type of player we are now sorely missing is a hardworking, consistent No 10 who is, most importantly, fully tuned in to Pablos wavelength. Samu was like that (at times) but just not enough. He set up play with his tricks and flicks but just not enough and he chipped in with the odd goal, but just not enough. Maybe this new rumoured name iturraspe is just such a player. If he is then grab him now!


1.) 13 Mar 2019 11:56:12
for me it is a batty paul ince type.

We are great when things are good (last night and west brom) but when things ain't coming off we need some legs in the engine room, some one who can play ugly, break up play and protect the back four to stop games like QPR happening.

2.) 13 Mar 2019 12:01:16
That's what the Yorkshire Pirlo does 😁.

3.) 13 Mar 2019 12:09:53
The only thing Leeds are missing is Dan James and the only thing Berm is missing is a tattoo. Actually, not so sure about the accuracy of the second "only" but you get the gist.

4.) 13 Mar 2019 12:26:41
Can’t even accept Batty and Mince in the same sentence. As AL says, Yorkshire Pirlo does that job already. I think Tyler will grow into the 10 role, and has done great there for the last 2 games.

5.) 13 Mar 2019 12:31:37
Iturraspe is more of a defensive mid so probably more of a backup to Phillips if we go up.

Reckon Foden on loan for a season could do wonders with Bielsa.

6.) 13 Mar 2019 14:04:18
Agree George.
Love batty. Hate ince. But nothing wrong with our players or their ability.
Bielsa relies on attack being the best line of defence. If we sacrifice an attack minding player for a batty type.
Then whole team structure and tactics have to change.

7.) 13 Mar 2019 14:52:49
we all know my thoughts on the yorkshire pirlo. If leeds had a prilo last night it was our maruding left back with his great diagaonals. Can't be sure but would put money on KP having the fewest touches of the ball yesterday although he didn't play badly at all.

For me the most important role is a midfeild enforcer like Batty who wins ball then gives to others to play. I know leeds fans can't like man u players but i thought ince was a great player. I would say same for Roy keane but hate the man so much i can not acknoledge him as a footballer as he was just a scum bag

that would be my first protirty. that said Bub plays a different way and who am I to knock the footballing god that is bub? who if he gets us up and keeps us up would have to be considered one of our best managers ever surely?

8.) 13 Mar 2019 15:08:00
I think he top 3 now.

9.) 13 Mar 2019 15:43:37
It is no coincidence that our upturn in form has been linked to Phillips being played in the DM role. I am not saying he is the sole reason but he has certainly helped provide protection to the back four that Forshaw was not providing. KP continues to run close to player of the year for me, along with Jansson and Hernandez (Cooper has also greatly improved this season) .

10.) 13 Mar 2019 16:55:56
Sheriff Pablo player of year no question but from what I'm seeing Bamford will run the runners-up to that award close. His movement best I've seen in a Leeds shirt in years. He's creating space for midfielders to flourish which plays into the hands of our style perfectly. Bamford drags defenders away. He's class. If he stays fit, we're up in George opinion.

11.) 13 Mar 2019 17:19:48
George! ! Steady on old chap, you're starting to sound as optimistic as my good self 😁.

12.) 13 Mar 2019 17:58:29
Agree George but basing it upon the amount of games in the season played.

13.) 13 Mar 2019 18:15:35
Kemar has been a giant this season his goals early in the season have us where we are now.

14.) 13 Mar 2019 20:12:00
Agreed Wex. I was never a Roofe fan but he won us many points this season with great finishing and tireless running. Bamford has carried it on and really looked the business. I’m loving the roses in my garden.

Just a case of Swansea playing hardball. They held all the Aces and as soon as the Bony deal went thro all bets were off. Not very gentlemanly but that's business.

From what I see of him he looks okay, nothing special. I did note that he was very right footed?
