Wow! Reports that Leeds turned down a last minute transfer deadline bid for Rodrigo from Barcelona!

Reports Club declined due to the “scatter gun” nature of the bid.

Fair to say Rodrigo hasn’t worked as hoped due to a number of reasons and we may have missed out on an opportunity to recoup transfer funds for a player who would most likely have jumped for a return to Spain especially to Barcelona.


1.) 16 Sep 2021 15:27:59
Saw some reports suggesting Barcelona wanted a loan deal - presumably because they’re strapped for cash at the moment. Other reports saying Bielsa wanted Rodrigo to stay here.

Either way, if it was last minute, we wouldn’t have had time to bring in a replacement, either at striker or CAM. So, despite his patchy form, accepting the deal would have weakened our squad depth further.

2.) 18 Sep 2021 07:19:19
Yes it was a loan offer by all accounts but would have left us even lighter in terms of our squad and maybe we would still have been paying a portion of his wages. Also some sources reporting at the time it was only semi serious.



31 Aug 2021 16:37:26
Confirmed at last, I’m delighted we have got James, think that will give lots of options for the CAM role.

Shame Costa move seems to have stalled, there is a player in there but truth be told we cannot rely on him, think James will be far more consistent under Bubs tutelage, happy!


1.) 31 Aug 2021 19:05:27
Me too Class! Investment not to be sneered at, and clearly MB sees something special in the lad. Our counter attacks are going to be rapid!

2.) 31 Aug 2021 22:47:01
And he is just 21. Wales international. Played in the Champions league. Scum to be fair have great players at his position. And he got quite a lot of minutes in this squad.
Ole is a piece of s**t manager. Imagine he would be in charge of our team… we would get relegated last year.
Bielsa can make any average player look more than decent. And if he has a grain of talent (and he does) he can transform into a great player.
I’ve heard that some scum supporters are really gutted that he is going as they see his high potential.

3.) 01 Sep 2021 17:59:44
One of the things DJ said after signing was that he was looking forward to learning every day. That could be seen both as reflecting positively his expectations of the coaching environment he’s joining under Bielsa, and casting a little shade on the one he’s just left.

You going away this year class?

5.) 06 Sep 2021 11:05:06
Hi Martyn, hope you’re well Pal.

Sold our place in Tenerife as red tape was becoming a nightmare, but off to Portugal in September then hopefully Tenerife in November to visit some old friends.

You got any visits planned Martyn?
Stage safe and well 👍.

6.) 07 Sep 2021 10:09:27
Arrived in las americas late Saturday, should have been in Antalya but still on red list, watching England and Leeds games including rhinos on Friday in buzz bar, small quiet friendly little bar with best breakfast I’ve found on the island, oh and it has a kebab shop next door too 😉.

7.) 07 Sep 2021 21:36:40
That’s quality Martyn
Don’t know the buzz bar from memory but there is a few of them in LA

Glad to hear they have all the essentials though, have a great time mate.

Crystal Palace’s Patrick van Aanholt, being linked to Leeds for free transfer to fill left back spot.


1.) 14 Mar 2021 13:58:43
Like him as a player but he's 30 now would prefer a younger player but on a free we can't go wrong.



01 Feb 2021 19:42:28
See Connor Shaunessey and Jay Roy Grott are leaving Leeds but do not think it’s worth staying up tonight for any incomings, but just shows with the likes of Rodrigo and Raphina what a transformation Radz has overseen at Leeds.

Wish them both well with their new teams those days players seem ten years ago now.




24 Dec 2020 07:15:14
Chelation rumoured to be selling 7 players to fund a push for Halaand

One being their left back Marcos Alonso still only 29 think he would be a great signing for us.


1.) 26 Dec 2020 21:39:10
Class Don't you just hate it when a process which aspires to remove heavy metals from the bloodstream wants to buy one of your own homegrown players?!

I’m rather disappointed that his Father hasn’t talked some sense him to him George.

We’ve had worse days! been a while but we’ve had worse.




23 Oct 2021 11:02:38
My team today is focussed on how many set piece goals Wolves can score. (Purely but feel)





Baby shacks - Forshaw
Harrison - James

More chance of Berm returning but believe this team beats Wolves.




17 Oct 2021 09:10:53
Really disappointing performance, and cannot defend the indefensible that the team we put out yesterday were outfought and outrun (for the first time in 44 games under Bielsa)

Our magnificent travelling support have a right to expect whatever team we are forced to put out, to play for the shirt and in watching highlights, reading match reports that didn’t happen yesterday, and needs correcting to make sure that never happens again.

Never understand criticism of the non playing staff, as when we win we always laud the players who secure victory, but when we lose it’s most often MB and VO fault?

Bielsa is always first to criticise himself, and it’s his demonic obsessive passion and drive for excellence, which will turn our season around, of that I still believe.

And I actually don’t believe I’m wrong for (what some might say are overly positive views) , really doesn’t upset me in the lack of spending in that if you ain’t got it you cannot spend it, however, I think Radz statement re Forshaw was a little embarrassing, ridiculous, but slightly more palatable than admitting to shareholders the financial situation isn’t good.

But then I don’t believe other posters are in the wrong to criticise woeful performances like yesterday or to criticise the obvious lack of the right player recruitment in the off season, it’s factually correct and that’s your own opinion, it’s just different view from mine that’s all.

Like Bright said, real shame when that tips over into division though, Mad Mick (for me) was our greatest ever poster and he was pretty much in the middle on his views, but left due to infighting and the site is poorer as a result.

We will never know what this years she’ll suit collection is, or whether he actually cracked it with the sister in law.

I believe we’re pretty strapped cash wise, and for all our talk of ground development what are we, have we, actually spent?

So this is pretty much it for the season players wise me thinks, like many others I would much rather have bought a proven £25m pound midfielder than DJ, but we never, so I’m really hoping the lad comes good.

And for any premier league team to have to ask to structure the payments of circa 13 million for Obrien shows how bad financially things must be.

The irony is many of our players are now full internationals and you can see their respective countries gain, was clearly our loss for this weekend.

But it’s a very long season and whilst we are expected to beat the likes of Southampton and Wolves these are (when all fit) the same players that beat Citeh at their place with 10 men last year.

So doesn’t matter who we’re playing objective is the same getting enough points but unlike Burnley doing so, playing (normally) high intensity attractive attacking football.

Could go to the very last game of the season or be decided on goal difference but with our best team on the pitch from whom we have to pick from to date, I firmly believe we will have enough.

But totally agree with everyone that yesterdays inept performance cannot be repeated being outfought on the pitch for any Leeds side is inexcusable!


1.) 17 Oct 2021 09:53:25
Excellent post class.



11 Oct 2021 08:50:33
Watching Summerville goal it’s uncanny how much he moves like a young Raheem Sterling, hoping this can be the lads breakthrough season to the first team.

I think Raphinia will go if not this season certainly next for (they’ll say CL football and the chance to win trophies) but also quadrupling his salary and a hefty signing on fee.

Certainly don’t blame Raphinia if he does, the money talks scenario is fully entrenched in the EPL now and Newcastle takeover will only go to strengthen this being the norm, for what we have to be realistic the smaller clubs (financially) such as ours.

Possibly the reason behind Leeds clear intent to grow a very strong youth policy, challenge there is still to be in premier when enough are ready, and hanging on to your new found gems, as they emerge.

Not meant as a criticism of the club if you haven’t got billions behind you then you have to devise a different strategy.

Only time will tell if it worked.


1.) 11 Oct 2021 10:52:24
Indeed. I can see both Raph and Philips eating this summer. Philips new contract will open the door for a move but also guarantee we get value whrn it happens a la Grealish. We are relying on the youth to come through for sure- can see Dhacks becoming tge replacement for Philips.

2.) 11 Oct 2021 10:55:56
BTW Sterling is still young! Only 26 I think.

3.) 11 Oct 2021 11:03:38
Hope they eat before that Alf.
But agree with your thoughts.
If they go. I think we will get 80 mill plus for both of them.

4.) 11 Oct 2021 11:48:23
I’d expect more in the region of £120m for both of them. Dunno what kind of contract Raph signed for, but I would also be looking to tie him to a new one!

5.) 11 Oct 2021 12:04:40
Lol Aus. I too feel that not eating ’til summer would be taking Bielsa’s weight loss instructions a little too far.

However, having had a grammar pedant as a boss, I can’t help also feeling £80m or so for both of them would be rather on the cheap side. I’m guessing you meant £80m plus for each of them.

6.) 11 Oct 2021 14:11:52
Bright - I’d agree we should be looking at a new contract for Raphinha, and am guessing the Club will have this under active consideration. This may possibly have been the case before his Brazil call-ups, but the latter presumably make it a necessity. The talk is of Phillips’ new contract reflecting his England status, and the same should apply with regards to Raphinha and Brazil, both in terms of his wage and any release clause.

7.) 11 Oct 2021 17:00:36
Even more haste to get deadwood (you know who you are) off the wage bill.



03 Oct 2021 13:21:29
Just back from Faro, surprised to see we won having now checked bbc sport (reading on here it looks like we lost) , still what do I know being totally illogical.

Actually believe Shacks (Drameh) are an upgrade on Luke (who remains one of our best ever bargains ) hopefully, the remaining injured players recover over international break.

Incredible atmosphere in Elland Road 36,000 plus supporters who managed to get tickets must all own their own hot tubs or don’t share the belief that we remain a few steps from Armageddon still I’ve been illogical before I’m sure I’ll manage it again, but I’m having a fab weekend after a Leeds win.


1.) 03 Oct 2021 14:05:55
The fans inside ER did indeed create a vitally important raucous supportive atmosphere for the match and long may that continue.

Giving 120% support to the team during the match is vital as I posted last week this would be vital.

Yet besides that vital 120 % matchday support it is entirely logical/ feasible for many of those 37000 and many other Leeds supporters to remain unsatisfied, have reservations about the summer recruitment and the past 15 Leeds matches ( friendlies, cups and EPL games) performances and results this season indicate there is an issue.

Anyway as my mucka Hottub Axe correctly states we are ALL Leeds, but differ in opinions at various times.

2.) 03 Oct 2021 15:26:35
That’s right Baz, it’s all about opinions. I wonder what those opinions of a certain belief will be like if we win the next three games?!
Pause for thought.

3.) 03 Oct 2021 15:51:52
I will be absolutely delighted OP if we win our next 3 games.

( before some of the posters on here were even born) 50 years plus of supporting Leeds brought up in the golden Revie trophy era I yearn for more top level success ;

its about seizing the moment, not standing still, this season needs to be about progression for our beloved Leeds United;
I 120% yearn and hope for your top 6 prediction this season to come true OP.

Not sure if you watched last night or this morning MP but they did show it and actually included the freeze frame with contact on Raphinia’s ankle.

Keown said it was a red and all agreed the tackle was out of control.

Great cameos from both brightly especially Joffy will do them the world of good to have that many minutes.
Take that with so many out, just hope Raphinia not too serious definitely intended by the Wolves player, once again VAR doesn’t operate for Leeds.

Have to agree here Alf, I actually saw Luke’s injury as not a major issue at the time, however, clearly for the team he’s been a big miss either on the pitch or the dressing room.

Hoped Drameh would have been given a chance but sadly not as yet, and fully agree baby shacks better option in midfield than Pascal.

It ACTUALLY states his guile and creativity from his championship days is missed. Age and a higher competition prevented Pablo from playing at a higher level, some may argue like for like (international stage included) VO Raphinia replacement is an upgrade.

As to our midfield it’s the exact same midfield that took us to the giddy heights of last yer, which incidentally all our struggles centred around injuries mainly to CB’s.

But when we got everyone back and fit we were flying.

I also recall Baz spending the first quarter of last season demanding posters name six teams worse than Leeds culminating in his support of Bielsa being sacked.

Then when we flew past Villa you rode that victory wave (something the Villa boys called you out on) then proceed to take a charity bet with the Manger at the helm you wanted dismissed.

Groundhog Day!

What’s that Alf because someone’s view matches that of your own that’s kudos, respect is it, if only life were so simple.

What happened to ALAW irrespective of an individuals opinion?
