we are mathematically safe thanks to TC but where on earth do we go from here. Radz has got to see that his abysmal decisions in trying to follow Cellino's footballing model have backfired spectacularly. I am sick of mediocre, players and managers. One decent striker could have made a big difference although not enough. I am sure a half decent manager could have got more out of this lot. Cibicki, Grot, Sacko and Ekuban are just pathetic but the rest are capable. Why is Dallas at right back, he is a half decent left wing back for NI but right back! Anita, why has he never been played in his natural position? i really don't know but square pegs never did fit round holes. We are totally inept although i don't completely blame the players. We need a good manager. Monk was the best of recent times but we need better than him however unless we change strategy we will be severely restricted. Nigel Pearson has got to be a decent shout although my ultimate choice remains Flores. dream on as they say.

Agreeing with a lot of points there scoops! I'm just baffled how such a promising first half of play translated into that utter shambles of a second half!

Brightwhite shambles from day one not just second half,

how many times do we have to start again before they realise you actually need a certain degree of quality to get out of this division

I could well be in the minority but i'm not unhappy with this so far. 5 points from 9 could be better but TC is still finding his feet and his best formation. We are unbeaten even though it's 4 points dropped. I would personally not be picking Hernandez, he can be brilliant but too inconsistent. I would put Anita in midfield for Phillips. 2 clean sheets on the trot is excellent despite the enforced changes in defense and while we are not playing particularly well every point is a positive. To get out of this division you need the 3 c's, consistency, consistency and consistency. Clean sheets is a good place to start.

Isnt that 4 cs?


2.) 16 Aug 2017 13:23:04
or 6?


3.) 16 Aug 2017 19:42:18
Technically it could be 6 but then it could also be 7

How is it that Phil Hay has been given Stam's name from the alleged list of 4 but no others? and if the club have been interviewing all week how can Stam be a contender as we can't interview him without Reading's permission and he is on holiday anyway. The names we have heard so far have only come from the bookies and media spin doctors.

I don't believe JFH is on the list although i do think he will have applied. For the moment i am sticking with the theory that Radz is very astute and is seriously looking to move the club forward (which rules out JFH and most of the names speculated on) I hope we are looking at the level of Flores, i definitely think foreign as we seem to be going with the continental style of football director and head coach.

Victor Sanchez has now been mentioned, he has coached Deportivo, Olympiakos, Real Betis. I can see this with the influence of Orta and a Spanish coach may be more likely to get on with Pep. Also i feel the longer this goes on the more likely it will be someone we were never expecting.

If it's true Radz was interested in Wagner it suggests he will be targeting proven managers in the Championship and luring them to ER rather than their current clubs. That would work with the Stam runout also. Who else? The Wendies manager maybe?


2.) 12 Jun 2017 09:08:21
Scoops jfh is not even been considered according to rads it's all speculation, what will be will be so chill my friend and have faith and stop listening to the garbage.

The manager/coach is talking about a need to change the mentality of the players. In the time he has been here the football the attitude and the mentality has gone backwards. He has not improved one player and now has 3 wins in 15 games. In light of this, how exactly is he going to change anything in the future when he hasn't so far. I am as much at a loss as he seems to be.

scoops

1.) 29 Apr 2018 16:12:56
Attitude of players a reflection of him. Insiders say he has the personality of a yes man and conman who deflects responsibility onto others. You won't succeed with such a person. This is what you get when Orta is in charge. We were doing better with TC and he was even more clueless.


2.) 29 Apr 2018 17:05:19
Sounds to me as though Radz/the Board need to be crystal clear as to why the team's results and their attitude has imploded. Is it Radz/the Board's own attention in the media making them look like monkeys which embarrasses and demotivates the players? Is Hecky a fundamentally weak coach/manager causing the players not to respect him and become very demotivated (many have said how the likes of Saiz seem to have gone backwards) ? Are some of the players simply just not good enough and need upgrading? Or, of course, it could quite easily be all three factors. in which case LUFC is well and truly fk'd. Virtually every club in the Premiership are now light years ahead of us. It is hard to believe that we WERE on a par with the Top6, certainly Top10, of the Premiership for a very long time and now this is a pipe dream.


3.) 29 Apr 2018 20:25:18
I agree George but not sure if Orta is responsible for the bad appointment. In fact I believe Orta is working with in his remit of buying young future talent and good value for money first teamers. Has he failed? Probably but maybe not on all accounts. I like to give a man a chance to prove his worth but Heck like Hock I knew unfortunately things would not work out. I’ve known for a long time now that it’s never easy being a Leeds fan!


4.) 30 Apr 2018 00:23:23
Cork Job requirement number 1 is to bow to a higher authority and be submissive. That's not a good start for a manager and in truth he ain't really "managing". I do believe Orta role has diminished somewhat but he still retains too much power when all he is is a scout, perhaps chief foreign scout but that's it.

The manager and assistant manager ought to wield more power but they do not. As for Orta acquisitions, real mixed bag. He shouldn't be permitted to recruit anyone older than 21. Leave the senior guts and spine to someone else.


5.) 30 Apr 2018 00:41:06
Said it from the beginning cork things would not work out.

Quique Sanchez Flores is now available. He has been my personal choice for some time now and should be part of the five year plan which is now four years.

What about a 1 year plan and spend £30m on quality players we can dream 😁


2.) 21 Apr 2018 13:15:00
Is Radz serious or just a time waster? Good choice. and could it be much worse as we're 3rd worst in the table since Rockbottom took over. 13 matches ago with 10 points. only Birmingham below us on goal different and Sunderland below on 9.
SAYS IT ALL!


3.) 21 Apr 2018 13:42:18
Metissekit said that last week, but think your right he’s a time waster looking to make money by tiding things up then he move on hopefully, no matter what we may think Leeds need money put in to it everyone has tried to run it on the cheap and failed.


4.) 21 Apr 2018 15:07:47
Spot on Whiteman01.
Breaks the heart to see repeated failure, poor choices over and over again, . TC gets the job on a powerpoint presentation and Rockbottom has a crap history. check out how many games he's lost with Barnsley and us! Always shocked what these clueless owners pick without recourse. remember HOCKADAY fiasco. I will NEVER get over that one!

Just a parting word to Thomas Christiansen. Thanks for all your efforts and we wanted it to work out as much as you did but it wasn't to be. Good luck TC you are one of the good guys.

Agree Scoops, good guy, just wasn’t to be for Thomas. Fair to say he worked a good deal harder at his job than a number of so called star players did! Classy guy went and said his goodbyes to players, this morning. Probably let a few tyres down, kipper down the back of changing room radiator! Good luck Thomas 👍


2.) 07 Feb 2018 01:18:08
Yep. Nice guy. Genuinely tried his best. But was lacking. Good luck in future tc!

nice guy but clueless for me the worst manager we have had in years maybe ever (if you don't include the hock who is a league of his own)


7.) 07 Feb 2018 19:18:09
I still believe he will go on to be a big success thro his career. I wish him well.

I get the injuries and suspensions but there is no excuse for not matching a team for effort. This is a very poor Hull side this season and we are doing nothing and TC has no response. We seem to be starting to invest a bit more in players, we now need to look for a better quality of manager/coach. Personally i would like Sanchez-Flores

deal agreed with Boro for Forshaw. Good signing imo. He was excellent at Brentford and in Boro promotion season.

scoops

1.) 17 Jan 2018 18:51:00
Slightly better than what we've got in midfield interesting to note Orta signed him for Boro from Brentford know surprise there then his goal return is poor for a midfielder, but like I say slightly better than O'kane and Phillips.


2.) 17 Jan 2018 19:56:13
Exactly type of player urgently required in midfield. His old pal Dallas ought to or is that Orta help him settle in.

Whats to panic about? we have 9 goals in three games without Wood. Do we really need a big target man? we are playing better, the goals are more spread out. Ekuban, Grot look useful, Roofe is scoring and what's to stop us confusing everyone and playing a false 9? we have so many options now we don't need to rely on one dimensional football. The Swedish guy may not have a prolific record but that doesn't mean he can't do a job. Roofe could get 15, Saiz 10 to 15, Alioski 10 and Grot and Ekuban a few each. At this point i'm really not concerned about not having a Chris Wood double
