What a shocker in more ways than one. Cannot wait for the close season. Today scores out of 10. Alioski 3 Harrison 3 Everyone else not a great deal better but we kept going down the left and that's where it fizzled out.


1.) 19 Apr 2019 19:53:23
Unfortunately leo, these performances always seem to happen at the worst time. Reminds me of the Wolves game under Monk. At least we have the lifeline of the playoffs this time, but if they can't perform when the pressure's on, they won't be winning them either.

2.) 22 Apr 2019 19:18:26
Tactics and selection were poor, the players were useless. This behing the scenes documentary isn't going to sell well. Last 2 games are pointless now, need to make 7 or 8 changes either way.

3.) 22 Apr 2019 20:58:55
New manager. Vinny84.

4.) 27 Apr 2019 20:47:39
All this resting players though we do need to tread carefully and make sure we do finish 3rd.



04 Mar 2019 16:46:01
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.

If all else fails how about this for a 2019/ 20 lineup?

Hosanna Halme Struijk Pearce
Stevens McCalmont Boghusz Odour
Edmundson (Kun)

At least it shows that any of the so called first choices had better be on top form, or else.


1.) 24 May 2019 13:44:02
Leo You omitted Gotts.

2.) 24 May 2019 14:14:15
It would be interesting to see how that team could cope wouldn’t it, no space for Gotts or Davis?



24 May 2019 11:42:20
In some of the reports we are actively looking to re-sign Harrison? Please God no. He put in one good cross for a goal and he becomes undroppable. Surely, at best his time with us has been, disappointing. As for his price and wages, City have more money than brains. Surely there are more skillfull. more direct, more lethal (Wilkes, O'Dowda, Lowe. ) wingers out there.


1.) 24 May 2019 14:01:41
It’s a resounding no from me re Harrison .

2.) 24 May 2019 14:15:17
A good squad player if the wages were reasonable, otherwise can’t see it happening.



21 May 2019 15:04:21
On the whole I do not mind our sweeper keeper but along with many other continental keepers I do wish they would catch more balls. Their propensity to punch does worry me at times. Should they chose that then either reach Row Z or the halfway line. Don't drop it to the boot of an attacker, to come right back at us.




19 May 2019 15:59:30
The rumours surface again but if Janssen does want to go, is it just me who thinks it must be unsettling for others. Let him go/ get rid and let's concentrate on getting a solid settled defensive back two. Hopefully that's all it is, newspaper, scaremongering for I do like Pontus even though, at times, he can be a bit of a Prima Donna.


1.) 19 May 2019 16:11:52
If we can get 10 mill and he is happy to go let him go. Its how the money is spent that matters.

2.) 19 May 2019 16:29:11
I suspect that Whelan wouldn’t have written about him in the way he did without some kind of an understanding of at least some views from the club. He is one of the natural leaders when on form but not sure if he connects as well with the coaches as he does with the fans. For me GK and centre back base needs attention. We have options at left and right back.

3.) 19 May 2019 17:35:40
Bristol just sold a left back 19 year old for £13 million. That’s the benchmark now for me, for the kind of money we should expect for any of our players!

4.) 19 May 2019 19:59:08
got to let him go, great player and great servant but he deserves his shot in the prem. anything less than 15 million is robbery.

5.) 19 May 2019 19:56:28
Not really Bright. The lad from Bristol has been bigged up for a while now.

6.) 19 May 2019 20:15:19
I'd retain Pontus and make him captain. Ayling would be my vice (captain) . Syonara to Cooper and Berardi who can ply their trade in League One or Two.

7.) 19 May 2019 20:56:21
Pontus, thinks he's better than he is. Let him go for the right money. For all his badge kissing, I'm Leeds through and through he is no different to any other player who will move on for a better deal. Not forgotten how he went missing with his so called injuries when needed during the TC period.

8.) 19 May 2019 21:16:39
I think Jansson needs to leave. He needs to pit himself against better quality forwards whilst he still has age on his side. but I also think he isn't on the same wavelength as Biesla so it could be a good piece of business for both parties

As was quoted previously, the £13m for a young left back does kind of set a precedent for what the market is doing

I hope Cooper is kept but, as club captain, not as a guaranteed starter.

I would love to see one of the good young centre backs given a decent run of games.

And as a throw out there comment. how about a bid for Bartley. A true, proven leader. Good communicator. And also proven to not wilt when he puts on a white shirt.

9.) 19 May 2019 21:36:13
think we could do worse than look at millwall

cooper is not great but brill at set peices in both boxes and tom pearce is very good defender.

10.) 19 May 2019 21:52:54
Georgie, I’ve mentioned the idea about Pontus, captaincy could be a way of motivating and reigning him it a bit, if he wants to stay and try and take us up. Pearce had a bad year, possibly due to injury and has gone backwards, doesn’t seem to have set the world alight on loan either. Not sure he ticks Bielsas boxes!

11.) 19 May 2019 22:20:39
sorry not tom pearce alex pearce at millwall the lad is very good defender.

12.) 20 May 2019 07:14:12
Need to do better than players from Millwall. Candidates for relegation next season.



18 May 2019 18:47:54
I was going to say we need a tweak not a clear out but when I look at the players who are out on loan I am not too sure. mid season we had 20 players out at other clubs plus the U23 squad. That's a hell of a pile to sort out. Personally I would like to take a closer look at the likes of Wilkes, Pearce, Shaugnessy, O'Connor, Coyle, Denton etc. Surely some of these are worth a try pre season. In fact if the had been available during this season they would have solved some of our injury/ form problems. I hope the powers that be have been keeping a close eye on these outsiders as any one of them could save us millions in the transfer market. Whatever happened to the Sarkic, Rey, Balboa and Machucas of this world. For goodness sake do not keep 45 names on the payroll, make some decisions.


1.) 18 May 2019 19:18:21
You are right about all the loanees, good to check them out again preseason, we will have a lot of faces at Thorp Arch. Hope we do like last year and effectively have two squads playing games. I’m assuming the B team will have some U. K. gigs whilst the First team goes to Australia which to be honest is seeming a bit of a distraction now!

Last year Bielsa used these games to test a few players out and Klich emerged big time from that. We could if we could unearth 1/ 2 more.

2.) 19 May 2019 10:29:31
Kind of agree with what you guys are saying, in that we should be having a look at all our loanees that are coming back from their loan clubs

However, I would like us to be ruthless this time around.

If Biesla doesn't see anything in one of then do one of 2 things.

Sell him for as much as we can. Take a loss if necessary.

Or if we get no takers then pay off the contract

I know a lot of people on here are bemoaning Biesla's use of a very small squad but in reality it feels like he has a hundred players to choose from.
Get rid of all the deadwood and allow breathing space for the little shootings to grow strong

I still agree with the idea of a smaller tight-knit squad, but I think that in the coming season that squad will be bigger as many youngsters have started to really step up, and more will in the coming months. Although we are not at the Man City level of two players for every position I do think we are getting close.

Samo for ins either, O'Dowda or Jamal Lowe. For work with I would like to see McCalmont and Diaz also for the back line I would think about O'Connor, Shaugnessy and Pearce.

I dread the "same team again" statement but I think he is not a man for change. Personally I would like to see Odour for Harrison and, if necessary, Edmundson up front.

Sorry, have to disagree his failings to me do not outweigh his energy. To call him a lrft back is a misnomer. As a left back he is a big liability. That's why everytime he is picked at left back he plays left wing. Even then his final ball delivery is woefull. I would much rather see a dedicated LB (dOUGLAS OR Pearce) behind O'Dowda, Lowe or Odour.

Alf generally agree but you cannot say Ideguchi is awful. As yet we have not seen him kick a ball in anger. I would also put a big? against Douglas. He played well early doors but before his injury, his form tailed off. Harrison, to me was one who flattered to deceive with his form never living up to his billing.
