Am I the only one that's thinking we ought to be talking to James Milner asap about coming in next season on a player/ coach basis, regardless of which division we are in. With his attendance of last night's game at Anfield, and inspirational talk in dressing room etc, it would seem obvious that he would be interested in working on the coaching side sooner or later. Clearly he's hoping to continue playing next season ND perhaps offering him the first steps in coaching too might help convince him that next season is the time to rejoin us.


1.) 05 Feb 2020 23:45:30
I would have thought that, if he is still here next season, Bielsa would welcome Milner as both player and nascent coach, and there can't be many managers out there who wouldn't see him as a great addition, with his incredible fitness levels, professionalism and versatility. Younger players would surely be inspired by playing with and learning from a recent winner of the Champions League and (probably also the Premier League) .

2.) 06 Feb 2020 09:36:55
100% agreed pal! The lad is a model pro, and as he is Leeds born, would be an amazing addition to both the playing, and coaching side of the club. Now is the time to make moves!

3.) 06 Feb 2020 10:47:38
He would love to come back. It would make sense financially. He could live back at home and nip home for lunch and let the dog out. What's not to like.

4.) 06 Feb 2020 22:11:46
Maybe the dog could get a game?

5.) 08 Feb 2020 12:55:45
Thought the dog was already under contract with the Terriers.

6.) 09 Feb 2020 11:43:56
what a bunch of weak willed individuals we have in this team, a frail and crumbling team, brentford are going to toast us on tuesday. we will soon be outside the top 6. no doubt about it.



16 Dec 2019 18:08:35
I'm guessing the rumour about Andre Ayew if guff, with someone putting two and two together and making 22.


1.) 17 Dec 2019 00:29:17
Hope so.

2.) 19 Dec 2019 17:09:11
I dismissed it as just talk because he’ll be on premiership wages.



30 Jul 2019 14:57:51
Anyone heard anything by way of confirmation on Shack's possible thigh injury, or on why Edmondson did not feature against Girona at 4th e weekend?


1.) 30 Jul 2019 18:50:31
Also some news on Ayling and Roberts?

2.) 31 Jul 2019 14:00:51
ayling + tyler out along obviously bwith kemar + the hatchet man suspended, lots of activity in BC squad this summer i think, vut hopefully we will rinse them, we need to hit ground running and build morale by winning games whilst hopefully playing attractive football.



26 Jul 2019 22:38:33
Seen some suggestion of twitter rumours that our new away kit is grey with a pink trim. This seems a little unlikely given that this season's training kit is grey. If someone has seen such a kit, it would seem possible iis the a version of the training kit designed for out ladies team.


1.) 28 Jul 2019 14:37:01
Surely if it is grey the trim would be yellow?
And don't forget it's not grey it's PLATINUM! 😂😂.



19 Jul 2019 10:35:50
Flint reported to be on his way to Baadiff from Smoggies for 6m. Looks like Gibson could be taking a similar approach to FFP.


1.) 19 Jul 2019 17:00:06
at least gibson spends cash, our clown is just that a clown . I suppose the fact that aidy is home grown rules him out from being 'found 'by victor the waster . Season just over 2 weeks away and we have League 1 Liam + a raw rookie at heart of defence and a striker who can't score as our main CF . Yet victor the waster feels we don't need additional improvements .
I feel another groundhog SEASON approaching . And no i not being negative just being realistic because this squad is not good enough . Radz out.

2.) 19 Jul 2019 18:40:02
Apparently linked with Chester from villa 7.5 M another injury prone short cb
Lets keep most of that money and take a chance on a free Mangala from man c only wages to pay and we've already got Harrison from them and he must have a little influence
As for flint yes last season maybe he would have been the solution.

3.) 19 Jul 2019 19:41:32
“Not negative, just realistic”. An absolute classic line! Reality, negativity, positivity, they all really depend on who you are, and what your outlook on life is. I’m positive, and realistic. But my reality and perspective is different.

4.) 20 Jul 2019 00:19:18
well you tell us all here + now bright white is this season going to be the 1? Because never once did i genuinely think we were going to go up last season because as/ were leeds currently stand that squad is going nowhere . Document your knowledge here now that I am incorrect in my prediction . Bamford + Copper + Kiko will get us nowhere.

5.) 20 Jul 2019 10:45:04
Agree with Chris. I would also add Forshaw to the list of no hopers. The spine of this team is weak, inconsistent and prone to making big errors.

6.) 20 Jul 2019 12:08:41
Never at one point did I say you were wrong, just questioned the statement of your negativity being the reality. My knowledge of the game, through 20 years of coaching, is irrelevant. I just choose positivity. Simple really. My positivity, is my reality. Your negativity, is yours! Peace out!

7.) 20 Jul 2019 12:27:16
For me you can add Beradi, total liability, and Dallas, average at best.

8.) 20 Jul 2019 15:32:56
ah yes the classic swerve the question by avoiding the question brightwhite. Then I scroll down the page and read that you rate cooper, ha ha ha ha, all your 20 years of coaching and this is where your powers of coaching have gotten you . Cooper is hopeless, he has very poor reading of the game, very poor judgement, poor positioning, and his Achilles heel, his propensity for fouling in and around the box. I, ll leave it there with you because your coaching knowledge is far greater than. my understanding of the beautiful game .

9.) 21 Jul 2019 08:27:56
Chris Chris

Haven't read much from you so when you say that last season you never once thought we were going to be promoted. funny that you never came up with that statement in December when we were sitting top of the league.

Credit to Bermo, he consistently said he didn't think we would go up because of his concerns over Phillips. Never heard a peep from you

"Radz a clown"
"Orta is a waster"
"Cooper is league 1 standard"
You aren't a negative poster at all, just rude one.

Radz is a multi millionaire, if he is a clown, I would love to be one too

Orta is a waster, and yet we all love the fact that our U23 and U18s were so successful last year. And the first team gave us the best value for money for decades

Cooper is league 1, and yet he is captain of the team you support. What were you dreams when you were younger. I would love to be "league 1". And btw, neither his peers nor journalists who see him week in/ week out don't agree with you. go figure.

Bermo, RHC and George make objective and reasoned comments, not name calling.

10.) 21 Jul 2019 11:24:09
Chris, Chris, Chris.
I’m not even going to bite. So calm down pal.

11.) 21 Jul 2019 19:18:20
axe on tour! My assertions of the people mentioned are ENTIRELY based on the performance ON field for LUFC, i do not know these people personally so i do not comment from that perspective . Yes Andrea is a very wealthy man, but my comment about him being a clown is based on his. refusal to strengthen last year at such a pivotal time in our recent. His refusal again this year whilst trousering £37million ink costs, which was brushed under carpet double speed . The Danny James incident still rankles .
Victor the waster comment is based on his previous escapades in Boro + now here, how many of his finds would you brand as class + how many would you brand dross? The latter weighs a lot heavier i need not tell you .
Coopers lot is that regardless of him probably being a popular dude at the club, popularity is not going to get us up or improve his football ability which we all have seen time + time again is very average, yet we are again told he is the right man for the coming season . let's watch how he performs this season . I intend no rudeness whatsoever to any 1 on here, yes my passion for LUFC is direct and maybe viewed abrasive, but my intentions are always honourable not vindictive .
Lastly September 1 last after our Boro home game i turned to my pals and said the words no way with that squad, yes i was ridiculed all season saying that i was wrong by my pals, but to a man they all admitted i got. it. right when we crumbled . Same thing is going to happen WITHOUT quality additions to squad.
Love + Peace to all.

12.) 22 Jul 2019 07:06:42
Got to agree with a lot of what Chris Chris is saying. Plenty of players leaving but very few incomings so far. Where is the money going? Nothing from Jansson has been reinvested, nothing from Saiz, nothing from all the younger players who have left. We should have 8-10 mill unaccounted for so where is our strengthening to replace the two quality players mentioned above?

13.) 22 Jul 2019 23:07:14
Chris Chris, if you really turned to your mates and send no way with this squad, you were well off the pace because clearly there was a way and we almost did it. To pretend you knew in September that we would only be good enough to come third and miss out of the play offs!

Bogusz was bought on January at a good price and will be a good addition for this year, White and Struick will also make an impact this year.

The easy prediction every year is to say that we won’t go up, the odds are for it. The sensible view is to say, let’s Wait and see. If you want to go every week having given up and in the hope that you will be proved right, fair enough.!

14.) 23 Jul 2019 07:59:43
Spanish White, i never once claimed to have said what position Leeds would finish in table or miss out in play offs . If you read my post correctly then you will see what i said that the squad would not. go up last season due to the number of average players in it . Remember the small issue of. our relegation form the previous season under Higgy?
Secondly you say the bookies odds are against Leeds, well go look at the odds for this season, you might get a little surprise.
Thirdly please don't call me a liar because i am not a liar, i actually did say that we wouldn't go up, and the same is going to be true this season, white is totally untested at this level, yet because he's cheap enough he's good enough by Andreas reckoning . At this stage 15 years on i think WE ALL can agree that LUFC deserve better than skin flint owners.

George - I'm wondering what your gut feeling is really promotion, halfway through this current round of fixtures.

It will be interesting to see how tonight's results will affect the 'supercomputer ' prediction. Following last night's instalment, it currently has us unchanged on 83, with Florists on 81 and the Bees down to fourth on 79. Guess tonight's refresh could have us anywhere between 2nd and 4th t.




25 Feb 2020 16:35:36
How pathetic is Wilder's ring-walk costume excuse. - just over 18kg. An actual suit of armour typically weighs 20 -25 kg. And being so tall, he's be expected to be wearing something at the top end of that or higher. For a more up to date comparison, consider that unmounted ground combat troops would typically carry at least say twice (and up to four times) the weight he carried for a walk of a few yards. And if he truly was concerned about the weight, having tried it on the previous evening, surely his camp could easily have modified it to remove a few pounds.


1.) 26 Feb 2020 00:55:19
He could have done with leaving it on with the fury was hitting him 😂.



17 Feb 2020 11:31:05
It would be typical of we had card-happy officials in 3 of our next 4 games, and KP ended up sitting out the Cardiff and Fulham game.


1.) 17 Feb 2020 11:52:40
Hopefully not . but it's in KP hands to avoid making any heavy fouls for starters.

2.) 17 Feb 2020 15:46:30
yes the last one was completely avoidable KP lost his head due to frustration. Its all part of his development though and he will know that he needs to work on that aspect in the future.

3.) 18 Feb 2020 08:31:46
Agreed that KP needs to learn to be more careful he not to give the officials an excuse to pull the cards out.

Conversely it would be equally typical of this season if Mitrovic, who's on eight yellows, picks up his tenth against Preston and so misses Bristol away and Brentford at home (with the Bees having previously filled their boots when playing Hull just after they'd sold Grosicki and Bowen) and so came back against us, refreshed and determined to make amends.



17 Feb 2020 11:25:15
4.more games before the cut off for 10 yellow cards. We currently have 2 players on 7. Alioski is unlikely to see enough game time to accrue another 3, an I guess we could afford to see him sit outside couple of games anyway. Of course the other is KP. It would be typical of this rollercoaster season for us to get card -happy officials in.


1.) 17 Feb 2020 11:42:10
Crucial that KP avoids heavy fouls ( in the next 2 games) . no yellows. no 2 game ban.

2.) 17 Feb 2020 12:09:12
Of course our last three games before the cut off are local derbies - Smoggies, stripy moggies and doggies - and got yellows in the reverse fixtures v the first two, probably only avoiding one against the other due to suspension. So, he'll certainly need to be on his best behaviour.

If he gets to 9 at Hull, might is be sensible to rest him for 'Udders at home?



15 Feb 2020 23:55:45
Good to see the goalkeepers' union doing their best to take the pressure off Kiko ahead of his hearing. - with Raya gifting us our goal on Tuesday and Rodak being to blame for all three Barnsley goals today!


1.) 16 Feb 2020 07:46:35
Clueless pressure? What’s is charged with, whatever he get won’t be life changing so No pressure get real.

2.) 16 Feb 2020 08:50:20
Whiteman - my comment was more about the other keepers cocking up than anything else - maybe it's YOU that need to lighten up!

3.) 16 Feb 2020 09:48:48
I get your point Clue.
And whitey bud, think there might be some pressure on him with the prospect of being eternally labelled a racist, with potential to affect not just his career, but the well-being of his family, and all associated with him. It might have an impact? 🤔.

4.) 16 Feb 2020 10:08:09
Unfortunately, Brighty, labels do stick! Of course its something to worry about!

5.) 16 Feb 2020 13:48:21
Worry about, lighten up, think about poor Caroline that pressure, something to really worry about, she lost everything, not just a 3 game ban and a small fine which he can pay out of his pocket. And to you out there that the bloody point being made he has nothing to worry about he will still play football not matter what happen how the hell it can pity him if his game is way over my head,

6.) 16 Feb 2020 15:06:32
Don’t know how you can compare Caroline Flack with the Kiko situation? Not remotely connected! Have no idea why this has been left hanging over him for so long! Of course it will affect him!

7.) 16 Feb 2020 15:07:44
Whiteman - I realise that the pressure facing Casilla at the momentbis likely to be as nothing compared to the strife that poor Caroline Flack must have been facing before her tragic death - likewise Gary Speed. I hope those responsible for the decision to proceed with prosecution against her have the book thrown at them.

We also do not know most of what goes on in each others lives, and some on here might have faced or be facing very difficult times - I remember George alluded to some stuff going on a while back. I will certainly not bore you with all the s#:+ I have been dealing with, and continue to do so, but suffice to say I've been close to breaking point more than once and may be again shortly - and I really do not need you or anyone else to tell me become acquainted with reality. Reality and I are pretty close acquaintances just now! When you face deep s#:+ in your life, you can either become blinkered to other folk's problems or become more empathetic towards others, even if the stuff that they're dealing with may seem as nothing compared to your own situation. It may be that you are facing problems at the moment, and it's they that have prompted your annoyance at my initial comments. If so, apologies, and I wish you best.

8.) 16 Feb 2020 18:05:53
Clueless I agree, I just don’t see that the keeper can have anything that would account for his poor keeping and just don’t see how anyone and say that he has nothing, absolute nothing to worry about even if he lose this case, if I am wrong please tell what he will lose, and as you stated your self are in a situation or may be, but you still doing your job, and posting on this site in the best way you can, all I say he should be doing the same going out to prove he’s the best, but no makes mistake, after mistake and we put it down to his case, and as I said has nothing to lose one way or another. I do wish you the very best in your plight, my post was not intended to point a finger at you it’s in general.

9.) 16 Feb 2020 18:10:09
Down south again you miss the point, she had everything and made one mistake lost it all, our keeper made a mistake and has / will not lose anything for it or because of it that the point, so what the hell has he to worry about to be on his mind during a game for him to make mistake.

If we can manage to win the next four AND KP is able to avoid a further 3 yellow cards in those fixtures, we could go into the tough games v Baadiff and Fulham quite handily placed for the final straight.

Fulham have an incredibly tough run-in. 8 of their last 12 games are against teams ranked above the 12th placed Tups, with whom they've drawn tonight - and only 1 is against a team in the bottom 8.

After QPR tomorrow, the florists remaining fixtures include 4 of the bottom 8, but the rest are in the top 13.

Brentford have 5 of the bottom 8 to face but also 6 in the top half of the table.

We are yet to face 7 of the bottom 8 and 5 in the top half.

For his effrontery of speaking truth to power in that way, I'm surprised the FA didn't ban Victor from all football related activities 'til the end of the season. Surely we should be grateful for even being allowed to play football anymore and realise it's not our place to be ask to be treated in the same way as other clubs.

Chris - Bielsa didn't say who would fill in for White. But Berardi missed the last game through injury and Bielsa said two had returned from injury and we're now available - Shack and Tyro.
May mean Ayling will be shifted inside with the Cookstown Cafu slotting in at RB. As that solution would involve players Bielsa fully trusts, it might be more likely than bringing in Olly Casey (or even less likely Struijk) at CB, which he would presumably see as a bigger risk. Though of course Casey did play for the last 18 minutes of the game with t'dog botherers, when White previously covered for KP.

He would seem to be 1.77m in height - only 1cm shorter than Roofe. So we'd be not much different to last year's set-up for strikers if he comes in. Incidentally Eddie was around the same height too - though of course J-KA has a much higher level of experience than either of the previous two.

Danum - most Baggies fans would not thank you for calling them Brummies, being good old. Black Country boys and girls. One of my mates at Keele Uni was a Baggies fan, and he decked someone for calling him a Brummie, having had a fair few pints mind, usually wouldn't say boo to a goose.

If, as Woodgate has said, Ayala is still out, that may help us. Hopefully their next game (home v Florists) being not 'til Monday, will give him time to be back by then, to maybe help put a brake on the trees' renewed momentum.

Agreed Bazooka.

Really felt Baadiff might do us a favour tonight against the Florists. However, having failed to do so, Harris has said they'll be doubly determined to get a result against Brentford on Saturday, following the defeat tonight. Hopefully they can manage to keep the Bee's BMW misfiring.

Let's hope George's prediction that the tricky trees would be too inconsistent to pose a promotion threat will be the one to come true.

George - You seem to have written Your Own bit of gibberish in the last sentence. Guessing you meant either 'ain't higher 3rd' or 'is no higher than 3rd'.
