Do the bookies know something we don't? The odds on Leeds to win the league are tumbling week by week. In to 4/1 from 7s with lots of firms. I hear one firm nearly 90% of bets are on Leeds. Is it because we came third last season, Bielsa being manager or even a takeover in the pipeline?
Hopefully all three!

Takeover hopefully Cork!

Your post cheered me up Corky. The bookies are rarely wrong. Superb.

Cork More likely the 4th reason you're missing. An effective transfer window this summer. We may sell Clarke and others but I believe the bookies realize we're going to use the funds very wisely. Adding say Costa, Kent, Lowe, Barbet and Travers will make us some force to be reckoned with. Even I am becoming optimistic. Wish we could get Wilson too but we'd have to sell KP to make that happen.

Bielsa is at home in South America he is heading back this week so I think there could well be more developments on the transfers . 4 names in the hat, Harrison, Kent, Costa and white from Brighton.

Is that a Costa flat white?

I know a lot people are probably going to quite sort of protective or precious over jack Clarke and he has got a great future but realistically he wasn't brilliant for us and if we bring in Costa and Kent then I'd take 20 mil for him . I think they are 2 players who can make a difference in the short term.

Agree1 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 19:03:06
Disagree mighty. Seen too many of our young guns depart. We have a manager who believes in youth so let's play him regularly. Or is it as one man famously said, You can't win nowt with kids! The big one name I have constantly heard for the past 2 years is this talent we have called Jack Clarke. The fans eventually get to see him for 1/ 2 a season and then we sell! . So Not happy!

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 19:26:21
Think Jack is already on his way out of the door lads, hope they are paying a big fee all in one go. Then we may be able to buy someone.

said not selling but looks like we are . incoming lots of misses, apart from 18yr old, same old.

Hands up whoever it is that is a ditherer. Names crop up and articles cry that they are a perfect fit. Then move on to "are interested" then all goes quiet and next we hear. He has signed for X, Y or Z. Somewhere in the chain is a ditherer. It has been going on for too long now. Please identify, negotiate, get it done. Preferably not on last day of the window!

Maybe it’s lazy journalism and we weren’t even in for them in the 1st place?

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jun 2019 17:53:14
Anyone any idea where we are with any signings?

What date are the players back for pre-season?

It all seems a little quite at the moment, plenty of grey noise from the press, but nothing actually going on, I know we do most of our business on the hush hush, but it seems just a little too quite at the moment!

We are close to signing our 3 favourite players: No-one, Nada and Naught.

Tis obvious 3 things in George opinion. 1. We're lining up our targets. 2. We must sell first to enable the buys. 3. Jack Clarke will be sold to Spurs for around £18m within the next 10 days.

Very true Georgie. Selling JC is the least damaging of the options that brings in money in terms of immediate impact. He is still going to be a few years in the making if he does make it to the very top. Interesting how Spurs want to develop him, in their own under 23 setup or out on loan somewhere. Back with us could be an option given the links between the two bosses but what will we do with him, squad and bench player?

Saiz is the other one that needs sorting to free up his wages and hopefully bring in a bit of cash.

It's classic leeds. leeds fans: radz we need a winger and a box to box midfielder.

Orta the fans want a winger and a box to box midfielder.

Im on it boss.

I've looked at costa, kent, and wilson, but all I could find is a lad in league 2, and that daft lad jack harrison still waiting outside ER for 50k a week. In terms of a midfielder I found you someone from italy.

Ok whos the lad?

Folorunsho, he's not linked with anybody else, he's 21, and he's playing in the third league.

Perfect, ones for the future.

Just about sums it up Samo. Lots of noise and speculation. Just so we can say we are chasing? But not much action. Yes I know we keep our cards close but the clock is ticking.

Agree2 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 21:33:50
The clock is ticking, Bielsa wanted players in for the beginning of pre season. Also we are off to Australia so who will be doing things then?

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 19:55:09
So who is to blame? Rad, Bielsa or the players? Is it because Rad didn't invest in January even though he was paying 11 mill for James? Bielsa because he likes a small squad and only wanted James brought in? Or did the players mess it up because they bottled it?

Lots of questions but no concrete answers to be fair. Injuries to Roofe and Bamford long term were killer blows in my book especially because they were our only two frontline strikers. It's a crying shame because imo we were the best side on any given day. Roll on next season because we are going to smash it!

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 21:25:34
Everyone was to blame! Share the responsibility, try to learn from it and move on . Radz needs to learn, Bielsa understand the league more and be open to change and the players need to step up and take responsibility for taking the chances and closing down key games.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Jun 2019 22:30:46
Really don’t think they bottled it Corky. Just that, as you say, critical injuries, at bad times cost us, and we ran out of steam. This year!

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jun 2019 00:15:21
That's the spirit Cork. No one person is wholly responsible. Collective responsibility for numerous Cock ups of varying degrees. As you say, let's focus on taking it to them next season. MOT.

Never understood why teams wait till deadline day to do a deal, if in early to mid Jan MB had identified James then go and get him, if it falls through then there's time to go for someone else.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Jun 2019 16:34:55
I always find in such situations that the blame is not easily apportioned. There are a few who should hold there hands up, including the three you have named.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Jun 2019 16:59:40
Do not think it is about laying blame but learning from it. Strikers for me were poor. Bamford showed no passion or aggression and he needs to bring that to the table next season. Roofe was adequate and worked well within the team but i reckon the way we were playing Grot would have been in double figures and a proper front man in the 20+ bracket. Still not convinced Roofes best role is lone striker. Defence at times were all over the place. Set pieces and runners from wide areas caused us problems. Not enough cover at back for injuries having to play wingers as full backs, full backs and midfielders as center backs that always causes problems. I would have liked to have kept Coyle, Pearce and Nessie at home as they were needed.
Our style of play had everyone on the backfoot but as the season wore on the teams set up to thwart us but we did not change style to counter them, although if we had taken all our chances it would not have mattered. Think we need to learn how to close a game down, Derby one a prime example. Nice to see attacking exciting football but sometimes you need Mr Ugly to get on the ball and rattle some bones, especially in important games.

Richie that the way Radz dose his work then if it don’t go through he blames the players or other chairman for pulling out of the deal, Great really make him look good.

Bright agreed, couldn’t have put it better.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2019 23:57:20
I think the problem is Radz, doesn't seem to want to spend a penny if he can avoid it. For me, that's why we missed out on James in January.
