Several times a loss in the 3rd round of the cup has determined our season. Cardiff, Sutton and now I have a depressing feeling that the Newport will see the wheels come off and a terrible 4 months eventuate. Hope I am wrong but I've seen it before and have a gut feeling. PS I am not an optimist.

I'm not convinced the FA cup results were the 'cause' of the wheels coming off in those seasons - rather, i suspect they were a symptom of the true cause which was that we weren't good enough.

Not used to all these positives since early 2000's. But can't help thinking if a club like Palace or West Ham or one of them sack their manager and have millions to spend to keep them safe from relegation, they will just look at the poor relations in the Championship and take who they want. because they can. I know TC is contracted but these Prem clubs have money to buy out contracts. Just being cautious as being kicked in the guts is how us Leeds fans live.

Octo I get where you're coming from, but for
Me TC is a different breed and so is Rads. I think they're both in it for the long haul and share the vision and dream.

2.) 29 Aug 2017 17:51:03
Thing is, you can't just take TC, you have to take the whole backroom staff including Bravo and Orta. I don't see him leaving, he doesn't seem like the type to walk away and he was really keen to come here.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 17:59:08
I'm with you on that one Curahee, Radz is to smart and TC seems very committed and like I said in a previous post he celebrates when we score so his heart is with us, for the first time in a long time we are building for the future and anyone who comes in Radz will make sure they buy into it. MOT

4.) 29 Aug 2017 18:02:43
Think you're right Octo, but am in agreement with Cura on this one. Reckon there will be all sorts of clauses in TC's contract too for loyalty, and like Cura says, I think we are onto something different with these guys.

5.) 29 Aug 2017 18:46:21
Despite his European pedigree, both playing and managing, TC was a bit of a punt (but, I guess all Championship managers are, to a degree - what with the nature of the league) so, I don't really see a solid Premier League team coming calling just yet. Potentially next season (provided we have a fairly good one) could see some top flight oppo come calling. That said, I do trust him and the board to make the right decisions.

6.) 29 Aug 2017 18:58:09
I think Palace would be more likely to get Colin or Fat Sam back.

7.) 29 Aug 2017 19:08:16
Apparently West Ham want Benitez and Newcastle would never go for TC. theyd go for someone they have to pay much more money to for poorer results than TC. So maybe even very terribles for them then! 😂

According to NZ media, chris wood is on 55K (pounds) per week at burnley. Surely this can't be right? If it is, then can't blame him for going. I was never a fan of wood. always thought he was a donkey. Eeeee-haaaawwww

Wow that's . £3666 a minute of game time ;-)

2.) 22 Aug 2017 10:39:38
From what I read it's likely to be much lower with Burnley's top earner coming in at 35k. He'll still be on a massive pay increase no doubt. Careful this doesn't turn into another Seth Johnson like myth.

3.) 22 Aug 2017 13:40:20
its certainly possible - premiership wages and Burnley's record signing.

4.) 22 Aug 2017 14:07:05
Man. U got to question the sanity of burnley decision makers. Woods their highest buy? Good move boys.

5.) 22 Aug 2017 21:01:53

I know this sounds crazy but my friend emailed me saying that he has heard that van Persie is a possibility. We don't get many Dutch playing for Leeds. Yes please!

Got me thinking now about our Dutch players. Terminator Bob is the only one I can think of. Got a mental block and struggling to think of anymore. Call myself a Leeds fan 😱

William Korsten, who defected to Spurs.

6.) 25 Jan 2017 08:30:24
What about the icon that was Robert Molenaar?

7.) 26 Jan 2017 15:38:05
not sure if he was dutch but pretty sure Jody Von Morris was part dutch as he was so skillful



25 Aug 2015 10:29:59
albert adomah is allegedly ready to walk out on middlesbro. we were after him a few years ago. would be a great addition to the Leeds team. yes please!

Never saw that coming. not in a thousand years. So. I will admit that maybe, just maybe, MB knows more than me about football.

Doubt it octopus- he just got lucky.

Octo I don't believe that for a second given your Correct Score competition berth.



25 Aug 2018 22:37:32
Had the TV on with sound down and they were showing Real Madrid ( also playing in white) on one of the Bein channels. I was not concentrating and thought that it was Leeds. An easy mistake to make. although slightly flattering for Real Madrid.

Imagine how we would all be feeling if Steve McLaren was our manager now?! Thank you Mr Radrizzani for not employing him!

octopus eats crocodile

1.) 22 Aug 2018 07:39:35
agree Mcclown and Hollyoway, who keeps employing them.

2.) 22 Aug 2018 09:46:32
Octo Ultimate nightmare. You must be surprised at how well we've started the season.

3.) 22 Aug 2018 10:03:19
Totally Octopus! I'd rather have Heck than McClown!



18 Jul 2018 21:28:30
Here we go again. History repeats itself. New manager before xmas, lower mid table finish, outplayed by the quality teams making us think of the same old cliches about "what if" and by new year we will be thinking (again) maybe management will get it right next season. and the cycle continues.

octopus eats crocodile

1.) 19 Jul 2018 00:09:02
At least we're being financially prudent. I still feel we will end the window strongly. Jozefzoon Foyth Maddison Marriott Gayle Bryan still possibilities in my opinion.

2.) 19 Jul 2018 03:23:47
Surely they wouldn’t have splashed the cash on a manager and no players.
I would presume he is selecting who he wants. He will also no doubt get more out of current squad than prev 2 managers. But. He may also walk any day if he doesn’t get his way.

3.) 19 Jul 2018 07:44:53
George there is going to be a smell of desperation about us now and any chairman worth his salt will know that and hold us over a barrel. While radz has been off doing TV deals we have been put on the back burner. The early bird catches the worm and we have been asleep. Everyone can see this.

4.) 19 Jul 2018 08:17:26
Sadly not everyone Wex!, It's a case of the emperors new clothes over at the Elland road board room with all those stooges and yes men. They may be able to see what s going on but no one prepared to deviate from the party line, hence the tripe from Kinnears mouth.

5.) 19 Jul 2018 09:59:33
I like your thinking, George, and I'm also staying positive til the bitter end of both windows. There's still a lot of wheeling and dealing to be done in the PL, until which point, certain players will be made available.

6.) 19 Jul 2018 10:14:51
Wex Disagree. I don't see there being desperation. What I do see people picking up on is us being last minute. Things have become urgent and we haven't actually "signed" anyone yet. You're only desperate when there's no cash. I think it's there, just Radz is being over prudent. I'm not overly concerned just yet. There's still time.



02 May 2018 02:47:22
Sven Ulreich could be free soon. We like signing keepers with flaws.

1.) 02 May 2018 06:13:12
Wont matter who we sign if we keep Heck - relegation fight next year if he is the coach

2.) 02 May 2018 10:43:39
That’s the spirit.

Let’s all have a sing song, altogether now; ‘always look on the bright side of life. ’

We are not signing anyone who knows how to score. Probably "own goal" will be our top scorer this season.

Every morning I check the Leeds rumours. All sorts of potential and actual good players linked. But slowly the names fade away as they are replaced by other names, and then those names fade and replaced by more names etc etc. Lower mid table and a lot of "what ifs" . again, and a new manager by xmas. I'd take this at the bookies but the odds are probably only about evens.

Norwich are choking and Leeds can sense it. That's why we are not looking backwards with fear at Sheff Utd, but forwards, with lip licking anticipation, at the Canaries. Leeds have the right mentality to be champions if you see what I mean. Norwich have the scared mindset and we are hunting them down.

I can see all wins except the Ipswich match when we field the reserves because the 1st teamers are on holiday with Bielsa after comfortably winning the league. and Ipswich hoping to go to L1 on a high.

As most said, the lack of activity in the transfer market WILL and IS coming back to bite us. Our only hope is Top 6. Look at our recent form, struggling to win, but usually draw or lose. Can't score a goal so what do we do. buy a goalkeeper!
We are in a decline and WBA up next.
It will not be happening this season. And next season, most of our decent players will have moved on.
I am so angry that this golden opportunity has been WASTED. Just a few signings would have freshened it up a bit and we'd be 8 points clear. IF ONLY. maybe those two words should be on the next club badge.
