Leeds are interested in moving for 19-year-old Citeh attacking midfielder James McAtee. Could be a loan or permanent which suggests he would be in our 1st team plans.

Agree4 Disagree0

18 Jun 2022 21:10:04
That would be a great signing very good player.

19 Jun 2022 12:27:01
A loan initially with no recall would do nicely.

Better still an EPL. table with 38 matches played for those two teams in 19th and 20th . one can hope.

18 Jun 2022 15:37:10
Who do we think will be our captain in the coming season?

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2022 16:23:48
Alf It will be LOL again.

18 Jun 2022 16:57:23
Liam may often be derided on here, but he’s a proper club captain and a great ambassador for our club.

And just maybe it was a whopping great big coincidence but goals conceded and points gained magically coincided with Liams return to the side.

Appreciate there’s more talented players out there but few play with his level of commitment.

18 Jun 2022 17:43:46
What George said. But just because Coops will (in all probability) be captain, it shouldn’t mean he has to play whenever fit.

It’ll be more interesting to see whether Bill remains as VC. It wouldn’t seem sensible, given he’s not exactly guaranteed to come on even as a sub when fit, so long as Kristensen is fully firing. With KP likely to be leaving, and Cafu out ‘til the new year, and Forshaw and Rodrigo possibly out of here or on the bench, that may just leave Bamford of the current leadership group to deputise for Coops, and I’m not sure even he would see himself in that role. Kristensen has been said to have strong leadership characteristics, so maybe if he settles in within the squad group quickly, he could be a candidate for VC. If not, Llorente might get the nod, due to seniority, which is slightly scary prospect. Of course, we may yet sign other players with strong captaincy credentials.

For all this, whoever actually wears the armband, we need far more players to show leadership qualities across the pitch, in all phases of play, than was the case last season.

18 Jun 2022 17:51:49
I don’t like to knock Cooper to much, I just wish that he could be the type of player that could back up his leadership with quality. Leading by example.
In all fairness, I can’t see anyone else except Kal but it’s looking more and more likely that he won’t be with us much longer.

18 Jun 2022 18:36:06
Problem is there are probably no obvious leaders in the squad to replace Cooper as Captain

It needs an inspirational leader new signing to replace him as Captain.

18 Jun 2022 18:42:34
Class He has improved slightly but I did not enjoy him accidentally stopping Joffy goal 🥅 bound effort against Seagulls toward end of season.

18 Jun 2022 19:21:45
Cooper a total liability. The fact he was getting picked toward the end of the season only served to underline how poorly the possible replacements were doing. If we are to make a push for the top half of the table next season we need better than Coops.

18 Jun 2022 20:14:18
Alf So when are you putting your hand 👏 in pocket to purchase Marquinhos and Militao? Go on there's a good lad. What a central pairing they'd make!

18 Jun 2022 20:58:34
There is no coincidence that we shipped more goals when Coops was out. Yes he makes mistakes sometimes, as does every player, but he is a great leader and organiser on the park, and does not deserve some of the carp thrown at him. In my eyes, he will go down as a great Captain of our club, onfield, and off field.

19 Jun 2022 07:11:56
Just as soon as I get controlling shares in the club George. How about you?

19 Jun 2022 13:56:58
Alf I'm saving up to help for Dusan Vlahovic. I might be awhile.

18 Jun 2022 14:43:09
Beginning to truly despise former goalkeeper Paul Robinson whom in George opinion talks considerable nonsense. Atrocious pundit lacking in class.

Agree3 Disagree0

18 Jun 2022 14:52:14
Same here George, he has gone right down in my estimation 👎👎.

18 Jun 2022 14:58:08
Fully concur George, he’s an odious man, take it you’re referring to another one of his insightful ghost written articles in which he decries our recent signings as nothing for Leeds fans to get excited about?

Based upon his previous managerial…. err coaching history or the players he’s bought…. oh I know…based upon nothing other than . time spent in goal!

18 Jun 2022 15:01:42
Robinson was a competent gk, nowhere near Nigel Martyn ( Leeds best ever keeper) class though.

Did Robbo leave Leeds on bad terms or something? because he has little positive ' punditry ' to say about LUFC

Danny Mills is another.

18 Jun 2022 15:09:58
Baz Yes he did. Him and Publicity Pete didn't see eye 👁️ to eye 👁️.

18 Jun 2022 15:11:32
Shouldn't surprise people, he's always said more negatives than positives, can't stand the tool 🍆.

18 Jun 2022 15:23:47
It's just nonsense to fill column inches isn't it. Suppose people have to earn money doing something. I never bother reading those articles personally as they are just made up rubbish.

18 Jun 2022 16:39:00
There all jealous its simple as that mot wigan whites.

18 Jun 2022 18:37:13
Correct Alf.

18 Jun 2022 19:25:42
Robinson needs to remember that opinions are like a holes. Everybody's got one but it doesn't mean you should air it in public.

19 Jun 2022 12:31:32
Very disappointing to hear Robinson be so negative about the Club. He has been doing it for a while now.

18 Jun 2022 09:35:30
Does anyone know if Bamford will actually be fit to start the season? Either way we still need a forward.
Also I assume Dallas and Ayling will also miss the start of season?

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jun 2022 11:02:40
Unconfirmed reports Bamford picked up a knee injury after kneeling to propose to his long term partner! But on a serious note, last I read, troublesome heel problem is now resolved and expected to be fit for next season.

Dallas not expected to return to New Year at earliest however, think both Dallas and Luke must be considered as excellent squad players for next season onwards if we are to become established in this league.

Phil Hay reports Leif Davis will get the opportunity to impress Jesse in pre-season still think there’s a player in there, left back, left side, quick but another lad with a history of nightly injuries.

Still need four five players (two cf’s) given that it’s almost certain (I believe) both KP and Raphinia will be gone.

18 Jun 2022 08:24:09
So now Barcelona apparently have lots of money to spend, with their fans’ reps having agreed to the club selling off half of the merchandising arm and TV rights (surely a case of “jam today and f@ck tomorrow”) .

If they want to buy Raphinha now, can we please require a premium price from them, for dicking around and having their fanzine SPORT write utter tripe about the lad and our Club in an attempt to finesse some kind of cut price deal.

Agree1 Disagree0

18 Jun 2022 10:15:34
Absolutely spot on Clu

It's a a toss up right now as to which club in world football I dislike more :Man. U, Galatasary, Bayern or Barcelona

The latter possibly.

18 Jun 2022 10:57:54
And no dead wood part exchange deal .

18 Jun 2022 12:37:44
Baz Why did you omit Chelsea?

18 Jun 2022 13:25:14
Yes George you are correct Chelsea too.

18 Jun 2022 13:35:57

18 Jun 2022 14:20:16
I keep hearing Arsenal in for Raph, which would disappoint me the most him going to that bunch of muppets with a manager I cannot abide. I would rather him go for £40m to Bayern that £55m to Arsenal.

18 Jun 2022 15:05:26
Ugh MG!
Err so you would rather Leeds receive £15 million less in revenue

from Bayern ( who I am surprised you would not dislike more ( 1975 European Cup Final cheats bent bribed ref ) than the gooners

Makes sense MG ( not)

18 Jun 2022 15:25:20
Quicker to list the teams you like isn't it Baz?

18 Jun 2022 15:28:55
No Baz, because it’s now 2022 and I dislike Arsenal and Arteta more than Bayern. Time to stop living in the past so much! There is a reason to dislike every other team in the world who you played, lost against, had a war with, etc etc etc.

18 Jun 2022 18:48:22
Lol MG yeah I suppose, kind of . on second thoughts . nope. never! 😉

So MG just curious in 2022 why do you particularly dislike Arteta and the Gooners? ( enough to forgo an extra £15 million? )

Alf yes Indeed it's a long list of disliked clubs :

but for now I do kind of like/ grateful to the Saudi Barcodes for not rolling over last day of season against Burnley.

18 Jun 2022 19:10:57
Never liked Wenger, whinging arse who got too many decisions because of his moaning, and Arteta is exactly the same, believing they should get more decisions because they are Arsenal. Still prefer £15m less than see Raph at Arsenal.

19 Jun 2022 09:50:52
I personally don’t want to see him play against us, so, unless a miracle happens and we qualify for the CL, it’s got to be Paris or Barcelona for me.

18 Jun 2022 08:08:23
This is merely expressing a point rather than a judgment. Although on the surface each one of our new signings looks pretty decent and most of us have seen their you tube highlights etc.
However, none of these players so far signed are proven in the Premiership, as much as Koch, Llorente and Rodrigo all looked pretty decent signings from their respective leagues.
Non of these three players have really shined so far for us and they were internationals when they arrived, not any more.
I really do hope our new signings adapt quickly and prove to be great recruitments, I also hope that our players recruited previously begin to prove their talents in the very demanding Premiership league, as I do believe it can be a difficult transition for some players.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2022 08:22:59
I agree opt. Promising but not proven.
I was expecting so me transfer activity this window.
So if we do sell both the boys I would also expect two to three top class 30 to 40 mill replacement starters.

18 Jun 2022 09:42:59
It’s not Orta’s way to go out and make a marquee signing, he prefers to look the lesser known diamond in the rough which is a gamble.
If Raph and KP do both depart this summer then maybe the funds will be substantial enough to bring in at least one top quality player, preferably a goal scorer.

18 Jun 2022 10:27:05
Good posts OP
I am feeling underwhelmed by 3 of our signings of 2020 and likewise 2022 although I have a feeling tne Danish right back will be a good signing.

Have doubts about sicknote Bamford so absolutely imperative signing quality goalscoring players it will define how good our season will be.

18 Jun 2022 10:47:15
We will only pay over 20m for a platter from one of the top leagues but we are now following the RB model of trying to sign players under 24, develop them and then sell for profit. If KP and / or Raph goes I can certainly seeing us spending 30m on a player but we haven't ever spent more than that. I share your concerns OP its great to see us bringing players in I just worry about the quality. Let's hope they turn out to be Raphs and not casillas.

18 Jun 2022 12:39:28
Alf Plata should only cost £9M, not £20M. 😂😉.

18 Jun 2022 15:14:12
Baz, likewise I have feeling the "Rasmus the Dane"🪓🩸can act out his Viking heritage and scare the hell out of our opponents next season.

18 Jun 2022 17:18:08
I think the RB lad will be awesome, as will Brendan. The Bayern lad I know very little about! Fingers crossed on all fronts!
