I see young Haaland has just scored nine goals (yes 9!) in a game against Honduras in the U20 World Cup. Unfortunately, I think we've. we'll and truly mIssed the boat on him for now.

Think yer right clueless. Should’ve snapped him up last closed season. But, it was only Honduras.


2.) 31 May 2019 10:42:42
Against anyone 9 is impressive. I think Alfie might be his agent so surely he could help to swing it?

I see FIFA has banned Mino Raiola for three months. Pity, might delay our signing of Pogba - but, on a more serious note, I guess it might delay our off-loading of Ouasim Bouy.

I see captain fantastic is already in training, with Lewie Coyle at a gym in Hull run by Lewie's older brother Tommy, who unbeknown to all of us, lost a world title bout in Madison Square Garden at the beginning of this month.

Good spot clueless, interesting one that, obviously the hull link, but the connection with Cooper might help him?


2.) 14 Jun 2019 06:51:17
. or maybe they are getting themselves fit for a medical.

Cooper and Coyle for Jarrod Bowen

Get in there.

Following on from the thread started below by Spanish, it would seem be the
time to start some hash tags along the lines of #PleaseStayCarlos, #HandsOffCorberan and #IvanBravoOut. If I did social media I'd do it myself - but as an IT dinosaur, I'm afraid I'll need to leave it to someone else - if you're willing to do so.

I know you mean, but like yourself I am a Luddite / techno-retard, so can offer no practical assistance.

Hope you don't mind me returning to a topic from yesterday, and a question I hoped Spanish and other U23 veterans in particular might respond to. If BPF was with either sold or sent out on loan and if either Huffer or Miazek were to be promoted to no2, which would you prefer and why?

Clueless

1.) 10 Jun 2019 23:54:20
Clueless, not sure I like the word “veteran”! 😉

I’ve seen more of Huffer and. I like him, seems very calm and collected and with a lot of presence for his age. Also seems to shout and command his area, whoever is in front of him. But both are promising.

The difficulty for the young goalkeepers is that they need to play to get real experience and the number 2 is hopefully going to be bench sitting for a lot of the first team season. However it’s also useful to be training and warming up with the first team goalkeeper and coach.

Could a number 2 goalie travel and train with the first team and then train and play with the under 23s or Huffer goes to number 2 and Miazek and Male act as the under 23 keepers.


2.) 11 Jun 2019 08:35:33
Miazek Is my choice, great with penalty’s too which would come in handy with Oliver and coops in our team.


3.) 11 Jun 2019 11:08:42
Good that we have these good young goalkeepers, if Carlos and Bielsa are equally convinced, it will make it easier to call BPF´s bluff!


4.) 11 Jun 2019 12:49:51
Thanks for your replies. As I said in my post in the earlier discussion of this topic, I saw a number of U23 games last season but never actually saw Huffer - just Miazek and Male. I'd thought Miazek was MoM in the National final - despite our superior possession he actually kept us in the game with some fine saves - followed by his heroic in the penalty shootout. I guess Huffer has a natural advantage in terms of command of his back line due to ease of communication, while Miazek improves his English language skills. That might also currently give Huffer greater confidence in command of the area.

In light of this, would it be best for either BPF or Huffer to go out on loan (with the other as no2 to Kiko or whoever replaces him) and also keep Miazek in-house as the primary keeper in the U23s to build his communication skills and continue learning the Bielsaball ways?

On Harrison Male, as I also said previously, I was surprised how small he looked. While he is certainly spring-heeled and perfomed very well, do the longer established U23 watchers (apologies for the use of Veterans earlier) feel that his height might unfortunately possibly hinder his chances of progress at the top level of the game?


5.) 11 Jun 2019 14:31:48
I had my resignations about Male due to his stature. i think ultimately that will be a huge barrier to overcome although De Gea is only 6'2" and he does ok.

Not much mention of Mallik Will's in the last few discussions on next season's squad. Guess this may be due to his impending court case - due to start 1 July (? ) . I guess we all hope thecase is over quickly and he's found not guilty - but either way, not great timing for pre-season. Also given Bub's line on discipline, I wonder what if any bearing it might have on his thinking really Wilks'possible place in the squad. Bub seems a decent guy and I'd hope he'd make some allowance for the impact of his brother's murder. If given the opportunity, I believe Will's would have quite slot to offer.

Clueless

1.) 31 May 2019 19:56:50
I think he could do a job, 14 goals and 8 assists and looks like he played on the right wing/ forward If bielsa doesn't want him them sell for decent money.


2.) 31 May 2019 22:45:21
One of my sons is a Donny fan, apologies for that, so I have taken some interest in their televised matches and especially in the Performance of Malik Wilks. My summary is that he is tricky and skillful but incredibly lazy and so wouldn't get within a mile of a Bielsa team. Don'the pin any hopes on him.


3.) 01 Jun 2019 06:42:14
Big mart

Its interesting you say Wilks is a bit lazy

I can think of a few players, that during the Christenson and Heckingbottom era, were also very lazy in their defensive duties

My take on that is that Biesla has demonstrated his ability to create very good players from raw talent, so hopefully Wilks will have viewed that and seen that he has a golden opportunity to work with a world class coach.


4.) 01 Jun 2019 14:02:59
Agree with Mart Wilks is a bit lazy but he got 16 goals and 12 assists in all competitions so imagine if Bubs could correct that fault, maybe some player then.

Just to get away from our collective depression and soul searching for a few seconds. Given that one or other of Fat Frank or Angry Deano and their respective bands of cheating, whining. $#! +$ now unfortunately must get promoted, which would we rather did so? It may be a slightly unpopular view here, given Spygate etc (and I can't believe I'm even thinking it let alone putting in writing) but I would rather it was the Fat one. Reason being that I feel that of the two Derby are most likely to come straight back down and I really want to see Villa dragged over the coals over financial fair play and their side dismantled - making them no threat next season. That way when we're promoted as Champions we'll leave Villa behind and pass both Derby and Blades on the way back down.

Clueless

1.) 16 May 2019 08:09:47
Clueless I suppose I agree with your reasoning in your post, perhaps as Leeds fans the two teams in the play-off final none of us are happy to see there. Also agree I begrudgingly would rather have Derby promoted out of the two. Villa losing the final would do more damage to that club than Derby, and would love to see Villa lose Grealish to a bigger club should they not get up. We certainly know how to pull a defeat out of the jaws of victory at Leeds, maybe people will call it karma, our fans song about crying your eyes out Frank Lampard. Me personally and with the help of hindsight, do now wonder to the merit of Bielsa's so called masterclass presentation on his spying has impacted on our season and how much it raised Derbys game last night.


2.) 16 May 2019 08:29:41
Not sure I care which one goes up - both have played their part in attempting to derail us this season - what we do know is that the one that doesn’t go up has serious financial issues to deal with. Issues that we thankfully don’t have now. Of the two, I think I’d prefer Derby. First because they’re the team that beat us and second because they are the least equipped to stay up. They already, as it seems have a £100m deficit and they would need to strengthen everywhere, especially defence. I doubt they’ll have a massive transfer budget - unless their owner is prepared to write the £100m off - and remember, Fulham spent nearly £120m and it wasn’t enough.
And Derby are no where near as tough as Cardiff - and that wasn't enough.


3.) 16 May 2019 08:35:11
Derby! I have a good mate who I worked with for nearly 20 years and who I have shared many footballing rollercoasters with. Also begrudgingly you have to give some credit to fat frank, his coaching team, possibly including advice from his family, they came and made it hard for us. Finally, I hate Terry and Grealish more!


4.) 16 May 2019 08:53:23
FFP punishments are ineffective and therefore do not act as a deterrent to teams who want to break the rules. I think that Villa will still be benefiting from parachute payments next year so will still have more to spend than the 17p, bit of string and some pocket fluff that Radz will contribute to our 'strengthening'.


5.) 16 May 2019 11:23:55
Alfie, tut tut, you given your sign on to Radz?


6.) 16 May 2019 11:24:17
Meant to say Wex!

Looking at the docs you seem to be referring to, while they were apparently filed with companies house, or uploaded to its website recently, they seem to date from last year, so possibly nothing to be excited about.

Spanish, it quite possible that there is something in this. As we all know, Radz usually attempts to keep his cards close to his chest - and, as you intimate, it would be madness to confirm investment (particularly if a proposed investor is known to be minted) while you're in the market for new players.

Canada - 'fraud your memory on this point is not correct. Phillips did start at DM, and Forshaw was injured during pre-season, which was what gave Klich the chance to start, in his place. Bielsa's mistake (which he eventually admitted) was in moving KP from DM to to CB (bringing in Forshaw at DM) in the New Year to cover injuries. Should have stuck with Halme at CB. It was that run of games, with loss of defensive solidity, that unfortunately undermined our whole season.

Didn't Radz's problems with Eleven Sports really start to kick in in January. While he maintained that it would have no direct impact on his ownership of Leeds, it must have made him feel much more exposed financially. And given these problems emerged in an area in which he had much experience and supposed expertise, it may also have caused him to question his own judgement more generally. It may therefore be that he had fully intended to splash some cash in January but that, given the wider circumstances, he felt limited to the apparent attempt to secure Dan James with minimal initial outlay. 49ers may also have had pause for thought on whether Radz and Leeds were quite so worthy of their backing as first thought, and therefore also been reluctant to fund reinforcements. Of course we may never know exactly why the necessary money was not forthcoming.

I seem to remember the last time those two got together for a scrap it did not go well. Some might say in some ways that incident and the following court case started the decline of our great club.

If the intention is to move Corberan to Leonesa as a pawn within Aspire's expansion plans, all the more reason for Leeds to cut the ties with this blood-sucking leach of an organisation. Since when has the need of our club been secondary to those of some tin-pot self-aggrandising power-freaks. Definitely time to tell Ivan Bravo to do one - we should not allow anyone on our Board who is willing to damage our club to further the success of their other footballing interests.
