Kal supposedly close to signing a new deal! Excellent news, I say! Most successful tackles to date in the league, and only going to get better.

I thought he couldn’t tackle?

05 Sep 2019 15:31:17
Doesn't say where he ranked on un-succesful tackles haha.

06 Sep 2019 06:42:08
That’s because there’s no such thing as a unsuccessful tackle, a tackles a tackle the others a player making a fool of them self’s a bit like most defenders trying to stop pablo.

06 Sep 2019 10:30:42
Yes there is and they get called free kicks or penalties!

06 Sep 2019 11:34:16
Its not a tackle then is it - its a foul.

06 Sep 2019 13:18:06
It's an attempted tackle that resulted in a foul.

07 Sep 2019 15:21:14
What about a missed tackle?

07 Sep 2019 15:22:28
A missed tackle isn’t always a foul just didn’t make the tackle.

07 Sep 2019 15:22:44
**** I must be bored!

07 Sep 2019 16:22:28
Me too cork. Must be bad if I'm watching test match cricket.

08 Sep 2019 13:07:10
Looks like a new 5 yr deal to be announced tomorrow!

09 Sep 2019 08:56:00
it has a clause in it though that means Philips can leave if we don't get promoted this year.

04 Sep 2019 07:46:49
With the present squad I think we fall short again this season. We are not solid enough at the back at set pieces and we don't create enough clear cut chances with all the possession we have. In addition we don't convert enough of the chances we do make. On the positive side if we don't go up we should be competing at the top of a division rather than attempting to avoid relegation or simply plugging along low mid table.

Completely disagree. Strongest squad we've had since leaving the premier league by far. Anyone who was concerned about jansson being replaced, ben white. Anyone concerned about saiz, roberts, costa, forshaw stepping up. The versatility is incredible. We've axed a lot of deadwood, which the board will appreciate come january. Anita on 15k a week, ekuban on 5, roofe on 10, de bock, jansson, all these players were on reasonably big wages. Kalvin needs a new deal which will eat up a fair portion of this, but when that deal goes through it will suggest the intentions had by all at the club. Look at every position on the pitch, one by one, and look at who could play in each position.

GK Casilla, meslier, miazek.
RB Dallas, Ayling, Hosannah, Bera, Shack.
CB White, Cooper, Bera, Phillips, Struijk, Davis.
Lb, Douglas, Alioski, Bera, Dallas, Davis
DM Phillips, Forshaw, Mccalmont, Shack
RM, Pablo, Harrison, Costa, Alioski, Gotts, Stevens, Clarke, Shack.
CM Klich, Phillips, Forshaw, Roberts, Shack, Pablo.
LM Harrison, Costa, Roberts, Pablo, Clarke, Stevens, Alioski, Dallas.
AM Costa, Pablo, Bogusz, Roberts, Harrison, Eddie, Shack, Klich, Forshaw.
ST Bamford, Eddie, Roberts, Edmondson, Kun.

So much depth, such young blood, such talented players. Every reason we should be going up this season, and who better to have in charge, I genuinely can't think of someone better to fit the bill, other than possibly pep.


We've lost 2 games from 8 in 1 month. 2 of which were in the cup. And its been a very hard start, forest, swansea, bristol, stoke, all teams with good solid players, and to beat 3/ 4 of them is brilliant IMO. Look at performances against wigan, stoke, bristol, just about swept aside. People saying they've sussed bielsa out, they haven't its obvious what we do and he doesn't hide it.

04 Sep 2019 11:44:59
Agree with both of you but only to an extent. We do have defensive frailties and I don't rate Casilla at all but the worry that I have is the failure to convert chances. Bamford may be fine against the poor teams (Stoke and Wigan) but will cost us points against better teams such as Swansea. Time will tell if Eddie really is the answer (I hope so and I hope we go 2 up front as that will get the best out of both strikers and as many on here have said is the only answer at home) but our strategy is to attack attack attack and win the war of attrition so we need goals. Sod who is in defence if we score enough we will win enough games but we desperately need to score more goals.

05 Sep 2019 20:15:20
problem is Alf, you get the vibe that Marcelo is a dude who just cannot be told
We don't score enough, so you would think its logical to double ypur chances, by playing 2 up front .
Sadly i feel there's about an equal chance of Diane Abbot starting as CB as MB playing 2 up front from start of a league game.

Reading we made 27 million in player sales this summer.

Nessy joins League Two club Mansfield Town on loan until end of season.

You stags!

Callum Nicell leaves LUFC.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2019 12:29:03
Shame for the lad but he needs to play games

Hopefully he’ll pick up a decent club and progress

Once a white, always a white

Unless you’re a t*at about leaving.

Black 🐱 set to acquire De Bock on season long loan.

Was a good player in there somewhere, though not cut out for Bielsaball. Will be interesting to see if he can get his head sorted and rescue a career in England. If he can, he might make it into a bottom half Prem team, hopefully with us looking down on his exploits from the top half.

03 Sep 2019 20:04:59
What drugs are you on this week clueless 😜.

21 Aug 2019 00:46:01
Days of losing to our so called bogey teams and ex players coming back to haunt us are over.
This Leeds United team is the best I’ve seen for a long time, and I don’t think they are in 2nd gear yet.

Agree4 Disagree0

21 Aug 2019 07:23:08
Let's hope that these words don't come back to haunt us. Seems we are struggling with the typical injuries 4 games in. The fact that we never brought another centre half still worries me. Brentford never an easy team to play so expect a tough game.

21 Aug 2019 21:05:13
Please Marcelo don't leave the subs till 13 minutes from time,

22 Aug 2019 11:09:39
Yeah its a bit early to declare we have that monkey of our back - that's probably the optimistic side of you speaking!

24 Aug 2019 15:33:51
How is Stuart Dallas playing over shackleton! WAY TOO SLOW. A good squad player. that's IT! Bamford hasn't touched the ball in 30 Mins!

24 Aug 2019 15:36:56
You know He is Going to score now!

24 Aug 2019 15:45:13
Stuart Dallas my FORKING HERO! YOU BEAUTY!

26 Aug 2019 21:23:21
Ha Ha ha ha hooksie Classic mate! 😎.

14 Aug 2019 09:33:31
Is anyone else worried Phillips will be sold in January?

Apparently wolves readying a £30m bid.

Someone fill me with confidence that he won't leave please. I'm worried he's attracting too much attention not to attract several different, large, testing January bids.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2019 11:02:48
Nope, we have raised enough to cover FFP this season

He doesn’t want to leave

He wants Bermo to get that tattoo.

14 Aug 2019 11:26:01
If we get offered 30 million and he wants to go, I suspect he will go! We have time to be preparing and scouting other options. Might depend a lot on our league position, how likely promotion is and the size of the new contract offer.

14 Aug 2019 12:21:28
Cant see Wolves paying £30m for Philips. Shall I get some petrol in the car just in case?

You can't have it both ways - either he does well and we will benefit as a team and attracts attention or he plays badly and the team suffer and he goes unnoticed. In this league anyone that does well is likely to be targeted.

If he signs a new contract it is less likely but if he doesn't then we will need to cash in come January or lose money which I cannot see Radz doing.

14 Aug 2019 15:25:08
If we have a bad start to the season and are not in the mix at Christmas, we will see what Phillips wants to do.

15 Aug 2019 12:43:39
yes 6points clear why go . the team that plays will be hero's.

15 Aug 2019 15:35:43
If a contract is not agreed before Jan you know he is going, how else will we pay for Costa. Not down to KP this, Radz raised the bar as far as wages go so he should be one of the top earners. Think if we are in the top two in Jan he will probably get what he wants, he wants to be at Leeds when we get promoted so give him the contract.

16 Aug 2019 10:00:17
I've already told you guys his sale in January is inevitable. Radz won't turn down that kind of wonga especially if there's no signature from KP.

24 Aug 2019 15:39:04
No Championship Club would turn down 30 million!
