Jebbison supposedly on his way North for a medical.
Club expectation is that Piroe will be leaving.

Brightwhite

1.) 21 Jul 2024 20:55:39
Brighty North to Leeds?


2.) 21 Jul 2024 21:26:32
Love this.


3.) 21 Jul 2024 21:37:01
Hope not. Jebbison is young but has zero stats to support a buy.
Piroe on the other hand scores goals.
14 last season I believe and only started 65% of games.


4.) 21 Jul 2024 22:46:03
Corky,

Piroe scored goals that had little impact. A third or fourth goal here and there, with exceptions, of course.
He's a skilled player and is great at putting the ball in the back of the net. He is not good at creating chances or keeping the ball.

He lost the ball to Harrogate, five out of six times. The man, and his career, are better suited elsewhere where no doubt he will knock them in for fun.

It's time to cut our losses and move on.

Real Betis currently in conversations with us over Junior Firpo. He wants to go.

Brightwhite

1.) 16 Jul 2024 21:02:39
It'll be a shame if we lose Firpo, he done good this season.
All the best to him if he moves on.


2.) 17 Jul 2024 00:36:27
Agree mot. I wouldn’t want him to go.


3.) 17 Jul 2024 07:18:22
Agreed MoT…….


4.) 17 Jul 2024 09:21:08
Firpo probably had his best season for us last year, there were still defensive errors but going forward and assists were excellent.

If we sold Cree and we played a 442 you could easily see Firpo as an effective wing back in front of the full back.


5.) 17 Jul 2024 17:17:31
Beuno news ?

El Taxi por Signor Firpo por favor

Muchos gracias.


6.) 17 Jul 2024 17:30:16
wouldnt be upset if Firpo leaves - we can easily replace him imo and his wages will be through the roof.


 

 

15 Jul 2024 18:24:04
It's being reported that both Wober and Rasmus have chosen to stay at Leeds after chats with the gaffer!
Let's hope Rasmus is on a "Warhurst crash course" asap!

Brightwhite

1.) 15 Jul 2024 21:26:57
Television ? dinners!


2.) 15 Jul 2024 23:59:23
As much as I don’t want them back they will both be good experienced squad additions who can do a job at this level.


3.) 16 Jul 2024 05:21:40
Imagine if Rasmus turns into Champo Cafu ?.


 

 

11 Jul 2024 18:11:47
Joe Rothwell signed on loan from Bournemouth! Another midfielder, which must mean outgoings too. ?.

Brightwhite

1.) 11 Jul 2024 20:02:09
I like that signing. Experienced, scores goals from midfield. Offers us the opportunity to be able to interchange players and positions within our midfield. Astute signing.


2.) 11 Jul 2024 20:06:51
I hope it's not Gruev. He made a big impact on the team and helped us secure a long run of games without conceding a goal.


3.) 11 Jul 2024 20:39:46
It doesn't necessarily follow that we'll sell Gruev or Kamara (or even Amps) just because we have Rothwell now. Thickening out the bench with quality at this level and we have Crew too.


4.) 11 Jul 2024 20:43:13
Kamara can go for me.
For all his good, I also saw plenty of bad.


5.) 11 Jul 2024 21:10:45
Hope Kamara stays. He really helps us tick.


6.) 11 Jul 2024 22:53:52
Also only the second player in our history and the first since 1922 to share a name with part of Leeds.


7.) 11 Jul 2024 23:10:29
Proper pub quiz ammo, Alf!


8.) 11 Jul 2024 23:48:54
I would be happy if Meslier went just to shut Baz up from going on about him every bloody day! Are we going to get this all season Baz? ??.


9.) 12 Jul 2024 02:52:19
Woody its 4 years now of Gash and everyone except OP, Berma and possibly Farke know he is pony

Even you Woody lad acknowledge Mes is pony.

Good efficient competent gks can be acquired without breaking the bank . £2 million and less

Pop Mes on bench as number 2 back up gk . please!


10.) 12 Jul 2024 08:17:39
Add me to that list Baz. He is inconsistent, for sure. He makes mistakes, defo. definitely pony with crosses, but so are many others. Even Pickford punched a shot away the other night. But he does also make some worldies too. He’s a 7/ 10 GK imo. How much would it cost us to get a 9 or 8 in today’s market?


11.) 12 Jul 2024 09:10:48
Remember without Rothwell we only have 3 midfielders since Gray has left. Rothwell is the Gray replacement I imagine.


12.) 12 Jul 2024 11:08:10
I'm with Brighty, think he has flaws and has plateaud. We can do worse, but we can do better, too. ANTHONY PATTERSON!


13.) 12 Jul 2024 12:44:21
Dill we have somehow got worse than Gashlier 5/ 10 at best . Darlow

Stoke shrewdly signed a far better more reliable gk for £1 million.


14.) 12 Jul 2024 21:08:53
So my boss is a Blackburn fan and said this

Unusual midfielder, has a goal in him and a good dribbler. Hasn't done much with his career in recent years (putting his words politely) . Maybe his loan spell at Southampton is him turning a corner.

Sounds like a slightly better version of Alex Mowatt, in the sense he scores eye catching goals.


 

 

05 Jul 2024 16:14:17
Sam Greenwood joined Preston on loan for the season!

Brightwhite

1.) 05 Jul 2024 17:42:57
I wish him all the best. He must have rubbed farke up the wrong way because the last match he played for us, farke said "get him off the effing pitch" because he made a few mistakes. Unlike Piroe the donkey who is kept on the pitch no matter what.


2.) 05 Jul 2024 18:52:07
Amazing at dead balls but who are you dropping so Sam plays?


3.) 06 Jul 2024 03:10:07
MOTagain . Farke the great man manager . NOT.


4.) 06 Jul 2024 07:31:44
Man managed Gnonto through a lot of turbulence perfectly.

I get Farke has his faults, I see a few myself, but getting on his back about him having a go at Greenwood is laughable. As Alf says, he's a dead ball specialist and not much after that. We should be getting rid in all honesty. I mean, Greenwood still can't figure out what position he even plays ?.


5.) 06 Jul 2024 08:32:40
He was in my fear we don’t still have him post from yesterday. Not good enough.


6.) 06 Jul 2024 09:38:04
Totally agree Dill. Another one who didn’t really deliver on the hype, and on good wages. Getting shot is the right thing.


7.) 06 Jul 2024 10:49:01
Good point on Farke 's handling of a difficult Gnonto situation. fair dos.


8.) 06 Jul 2024 22:03:12
What about his handling of Archie and your boy DJ Baz, DF didn’t do too bad there either did he? He really can’t be all that bad then can he mate!


9.) 07 Jul 2024 03:51:19
IDJWT

In DJ We Trust . that's all on DJ

Its not a Farke thing.


10.) 07 Jul 2024 14:29:14
Brought the best out of him, Baz. He's not had that since Potter managed him.

Tyler Adams out until approx October after more surgery! Good business getting shot of him when, and how, we did!

Brightwhite

1.) 20 Jul 2024 12:13:42
Oh dear what a shame.


2.) 20 Jul 2024 12:46:57
Made of rizla papers.


3.) 20 Jul 2024 13:34:33
Bournemouth very miffed and I’m not surprised hasn’t played for them then insists on playing Copa America including a friendly. Good business for us for a change!


4.) 20 Jul 2024 14:44:04
Its all about me Tyler Adams. never rated him whilst at Leeds

Along with McKennie bizarrely very overated by USA fans plus injury prone now

Both Orta signings that were " self before side"

Good riddance.


5.) 20 Jul 2024 15:37:09
No arguments here guys:)

Always felt that Adams had 'something' but no more than an average player should have.

As for McKennie - don't get me started! Up there with the great Roque Junior as far as Leeds United are concerned!


6.) 20 Jul 2024 18:05:02
You’re not wrong Cleggy! Absolutely terrible signings ??.


7.) 20 Jul 2024 20:53:05
As far as Orta, self before anyone else and self was Orta.


8.) 20 Jul 2024 23:40:38
Decent, but overrated. They are welcome to him.

Cresswell signs new contract. Alfie, that is.

Brightwhite

1.) 17 Jul 2024 16:57:57
Can we resign Charlie too please.


2.) 17 Jul 2024 20:29:19
Why resign him when we can buy him back for £40 million once he has had his breakout season?


3.) 17 Jul 2024 21:09:21
Lol MOT again. that would happen under Victor Orta and Co.


4.) 17 Jul 2024 22:51:33
It’s funny how many see Charlie C as one that got away. Personally I never saw him play at a high level at Leeds or Milwall although I could see potential. A bit like Geldhart but Joe did have a number of very good performances for us.
With Charlie it seems like he’s a victim of the way we play out from the back and maybe he’s not as comfortable on the ball as others?
He’s an ole school defender which Farke obviously doesn’t like. There’s definitely a place in modern day football for a nuts n bolts defender but unfortunately not playing for Farke.


5.) 17 Jul 2024 23:59:04
That's absolutely bang on, Corky mate.


6.) 18 Jul 2024 01:44:09
Corkster. yeah but how much longer will DF be at Leeds United
. odds on this season is his last.
He has to get promotion. nothing less will be acceptable

Cressy should have been given a 1 year loan. as Farke could be gone within the year.


7.) 18 Jul 2024 07:24:33
You are totally correct with that Cork, I can’t see them breaking through with our style of football and it has to be said even at Millwall young Charlie was not always first choice as CB. They’ve both got careers in professional football, but it won’t be where we want to go sadly for them.
Even if Farke doesn’t make it and I’m sure some want him to fail!? and is sacked we will not be changing our style of football at this club, reverting to old style defensive, non pressing formations that nobody wants to watch anymore, like at West Ham with Moyes.


8.) 18 Jul 2024 07:46:51
Some having issues understanding the game has changed, OP. Defenders need to defend, but also be ball players. That's what most if not all top youth systems are teaching nowadays. The days of just being a knuckler are gone with how footy is now. Like it or not.


9.) 18 Jul 2024 10:15:00
There may be better passers of a ball than Charlie but bottom line higher League 1 Toulouse signed him and he plays for England U21.

Perhaps Charlie has outgrown and too good for little ole Champo LUFC under choker DF.


10.) 18 Jul 2024 12:21:25
Good to read that you are fully behind and backing our coach to guide the team to promotion this season Baz.
We haven’t even kicked a ball yet and you decide, against the majority who think Farke will win promotion, to give him no chance because he’s a choker!
It’s of no surprise yet again you’ll be slagging off owners, coach, players and anyone involved with the club as per usual.
Have a great day Baz and we’ll all be looking forward to your posts to brighten up our forthcoming season.


11.) 18 Jul 2024 12:49:01
Hi OP .
Sorry fella but as you know only too well DF and yes the players also of couese choked with 8 games remaining AND again in play off final

Dress it up with your rose tinted feeble excuses . there's no denying it.


12.) 18 Jul 2024 13:34:57
He's gone from being fourth choice CB at Leeds to third or fourth choice CB at Toulouse. Doubt he starts over Costa and Nicolaisen, then you have Mawissa there too.

Congrats Cressy on the big step up ?.


13.) 18 Jul 2024 14:16:20
Time will tell Dill re Charlie Cresswell and his career progression.

I am 100 % confident he will develop increasingly into a very good player that actually is superb at DEFENDING . keeping ball out of net is useful Dill ?

. his ball passing improvements we shall see.


14.) 18 Jul 2024 15:13:20
He will be on loan at Barnsley come January.


15.) 18 Jul 2024 16:24:23
Baz I agreed mate can’t see us getting up . but always live in hope?.


16.) 18 Jul 2024 16:31:53
No way Bright.

More chance of you getting a game Bright in reserves at 3rd division Bulgar side Tryavna ?.


17.) 18 Jul 2024 17:36:51
It certainly will.

Fwiw he's a good enough defender, just not a good player. As I mentioned previously, the game has changed. Being good at one aspect will only get him so far. He needs to adapt and get better at other aspects which are vital in today's football.


18.) 18 Jul 2024 17:37:10
Quality Brighty ?.


19.) 18 Jul 2024 18:17:39
Dill . this from Bright just who stated on here last week he rated Cressy and was very disappointed to see Cressy leave Leeds United

A tad contradictory is Bright.


20.) 18 Jul 2024 18:29:09
It's a tongue in cheek comment mate. Pretty funny as well because it may happen ?.


21.) 18 Jul 2024 20:35:05
I shall remind you Dill next Jan 31st when it of course hasn't happened.


22.) 18 Jul 2024 21:57:55
It probably won't, but it might. Still funny ?.

Charlie Crew has signed a new contract up to 2028. Good news, and hopefully his breakthrough season on the back of it.

Brightwhite

1.) 13 Jul 2024 10:18:45
Wish Charlie Crew well but unsure about him. as not seen that much U21 football last season

When I did there was. no one who really stood out : Charlie Allen lively though

The last player who so obviously really stood out in U21s was Max Dean who I had been championing.


2.) 13 Jul 2024 10:40:47
And me Baz.


3.) 13 Jul 2024 10:53:19
Baz Crew is highly rated. Think he'll do well this season.


4.) 13 Jul 2024 12:51:47

Official kit launch on Friday!

Brightwhite

Lookimg forward to the away kit.


2.) 04 Jul 2024 08:17:04
Hoping for some classic looking 1st and 2nd strips, and something distinct but not vomit inducing for the keeper. Intrigued by what the 3rd kit may be this season, but that’s usually released later I think?


3.) 04 Jul 2024 13:06:42
Brighty. its more than enough that our keepers' performances are vomit inducing .

So please gawd not their kits also??.


 

 

19 Jun 2024 16:03:27
Retro badges being considered for re-use in the new kit, smiley badge included! Let's hope for a belter, and nowt with puke on it!

Brightwhite

1.) 19 Jun 2024 17:10:25
Hopefully not just the smiley face retro badge but a retro kit too.

. something similar to the beautiful Leeds United home kit of 77/ 78, 78/ 79.


2.) 19 Jun 2024 17:15:40
Would love the smiley badge back!


3.) 19 Jun 2024 21:23:19
I’d like to see the return of the numbers in the socks:)


4.) 19 Jun 2024 22:08:33
I’d love to see the return of sniffer too!


5.) 19 Jun 2024 22:19:29
I liked the smiley but it was worn during some depressing times for Leeds United.


6.) 20 Jun 2024 01:45:07
Corkster you be very much mistaken again ?

the iconic smiley face badge had a SEVEN season era 1973 to 1980 none of which was " depressing '.

On the contrary, the very first season the smiley face badge was used by Leeds United was in 1973/ 74 which was a flipping blooming marvellous fantastic League Champions season. our BEST EVER season i'm my opinion ?

Leeds United then had some very near misses of trophies European Cup finalists, three times domestic cup semi finalists. finished a between 5th and 10th each season.

So overall the smiley face badge had a fairly good SUCCESSFUL era . depressing? . nah.


7.) 20 Jun 2024 09:41:50
Didn’t realise it was worn when we won the league? But it was down hill after that Baz as the mid to late 70s was the beginning of our demise ?.


8.) 20 Jun 2024 11:50:49
I would say Corkster it waa more specifically the 1981/ 82 season which was a one off very bad season . we had finished a comfortable 10th previous season .

Love Sniffer as a player but he got if badly wrong with signings esp the needless disaster signing of Peter Barnes and formations without a decent midfield and no goalscorers that season as coach

Should have kept the smiley ☺️ face badge . eh.

That isn’t Gruev’s natural approach. He does, and initially did, prefer to lift his head in space from deep, and play more reaching passes, similar to Kal, to the wings, and through the middle. When Farke clearly told him to keep it simple, was when the brakes were put on our faster, more flowing and varied football.
The lateral element of his play is more through managerial design than natural ability or desire.

Probably proper wazz Baz off with this statement, but “he has been a great servant to the club”! Or is it someone else who despises that phrase?
Would’ve preferred to keep him for a later coaching role with us tho.

Also had a run out in the behind closed doors game the other day, so I believe he will have a bit part to play on and off, and it’s about building his experience, and exposure gradually. But hey, DF doesn’t blood youth does he!? ???.

Playing more of “devil’s advocate” here. Are we in need of a proven CF who can score at this level, or someone who can push on when we are promoted, or again, someone already capable at PL level, and whatever the choice, what does this mean for MJ? I, as do many here, fully advocate Matteo getting the 9 shirt, but would be concerned if he was usurped by a new signing?
