Some of you may have seen that All Leeds TV claim to have an agent contact/ friend (who has apparently proved reliable for info previously) who advised a few days ago that despite the various media stories there had been no Barcelona offer to Leeds for Raphinha, and that Raphinha had most definitely not agreed a five year deal etc. Supposedly Raphinha was one of the favoured options for Barcelona to replace Ousmane Dembele, if the latter left in the summer. Dembele had previously turned down a new contract and was due to leave on a free, and had been frozen out of the first team. Xavi subsequently brought him back in from the cold and he has returned to form, linking up well with new signing Aubameyang. Reported that they may now be entering new talks over a renewed contract. It would be cheaper for them than buying Raphinha or any other replacement.

Dembele was PSGs preferred replacement for Di Maria this summer, but they are supposedly monitoring Raphinha’s situation as a possible fallback option.

Congrats to Archie Gray for his first England call-up, with the u16 squad for the four-team round-robin Val-de-Marne Tournament, which also includes France, Italy and Belgium.

We are appealing Struijk’s red card. Phil Hay reported in The Athletic this morning that the Club was expected to do so, and has now said confirmation has been received that the relevant papers have now been submitted to the FA.

Given that former referees are reported to have said the challenge didn’t merit a red, and perhaps more pertinently Harvey Elliot has said it didn’t, you’d hope the appeal would have a good chance of being successful.

One thing against us Clueless, we are Leeds.


2.) 14 Sep 2021 15:05:36
In the meantime while the appeal goes through does that mean we can play Struijk against Newcastle or will a decision have been reached by Friday?


3.) 14 Sep 2021 15:59:41
I know, AGM. I was going to say that. The Leeds element of the case would stick out like an exceedingly sore thumb if the decision stands, given the precedent would seem to have been set by a very similar case involving Heung-min Son last season.

Alf - According to Leeds Live, the decision should be known tomorrow at the latest.

This evening, the Club apparently tweeted a picture of Raphinha in training, with the message ‘R10🔥’.

That's true.

That lad Haaland looks a good prospect. 🤪

Clearly Orta didn’t know what he was doing when Leeds tried to sign him from Molde in 2019, bringing him over to see all the Club’s facilities etc. Thankfully Red Bull Leipzig were able to blow our offer out of the water.

Clu Erling would have been a slight upgrade on Jay Roy Grot.


2.) 10 Sep 2021 08:59:23
Jay-Roy Grot clearly had the physical attributes to be a real handful at Championship level, being built like the proverbial brick s#*thouse and with a decent turn of speed. He’d been capped in the Dutch age group sides and already had a season in the Eredivisie, with 17 starts and 5 goals in the regular season and another goal in a relegation playoff match - not bad for an 18 year-old who’s manager kept switching his position, principally between RW and CF, but also with a game each at LW and as a secondary striker. Fiorentina had tried to sign him before he came to us, but couldn’t agree a fee with NEC, so overall he seemed like a decent prospect. Having joined us with the season already started, he apparently really struggled to settle with the move away from Holland, and getting dogs abuse from some of the fans probably didn’t help the lad. Having not managed to put a marker down in that first season he was probably never going to be able to make the cut when Bielsa whittled down the squad. He may have developed under a different manager here, but obviously we’ll never know.

Well, we’re staying up, that was never in doubt really - joking.

Lads put a shift on - Greenwood really stepped up - why did I ever doubt his inclusion in the starting line-up. Those who doubted Raphinha’s commitment to the cause are hopefully able to admit they were wrong.

Great to see that Marsch realised that width was required to get the most out of our squad, particularly from Raphinha, Harrison and KP. It would be good if he stuck with that, though some of what he said yesterday postmatch hinted at moving fully to his preferred tactics.

Hopefully peace and love can break out on here, for a while at least - with all posters welcome. Let’s just admit that none of us actually KNEW what would happen for sure, we just had hunches/ gut feelings as to how the season would play out. So let’s go easy on any self congratulations or finger pointing.

Bottom line is we all wanted us to stay up - and we have done. On and on - MOT ALAW.

Well said, hopefully this season was a wake up call to the people running the club. Investment in the right areas is key. Manchester city and Liverpool won't stand still.

You really couldn’t make it up. Apparently both ref and VAR failed to pick up a clear elbow to Tyrone Mings head by Ashley Barnes - stonewall red card in the first half last night. The same Ashley Barnes then scores Burnley’s penalty which ended up giving them a crucial point. The same Ashley Barnes that should have been sent of for his horrendous tackle on Dallas earlier in the season. 😡🤯

Prem refs and VAR are beyond a joke.

Unbelievable that Barnes wasn't sent off. He does have a nasty streak in him. Pope, the Burnley keeper has been outstanding for them, especially over the last few games.


2.) 20 May 2022 12:46:17
Yes Barnes is a nasty horrible player. I reckon we should sign him if we're relegated on Sunday!


3.) 20 May 2022 13:37:33
Thing is Mac lad, if Barnes had been wearing the white of Leeds last night you can guarantee he’d have been sent off. He’s a thug, plain and simple, and would be a liability to us - and we’ve got enough problems without him.


4.) 20 May 2022 17:27:27
True Class if Barnes was a Leeds player he'd be sent off after about 20 minutes but he didn't used to be such a thug of a player and I remember it may have been when Larry was manager we seriously tried to get him when he was in his early 20s. All those years coached by Dyche seems to have changed him.

No on second thoughts Joffy can lead us back to the promised land if we do go down or hopefully he will make himself an instant legend on Sunday and help rescue us from the clutches of the Championship.


5.) 20 May 2022 18:03:47
Pope has single handedly, or both handedly, saved Burnley. Quality performances over the last few months.


6.) 20 May 2022 21:05:05
And who says joffy will still be here next season?

I see Chelsea are playing a couple of first team CBs, Trevor Chalobah and Malang Sarr - plus a young forward signed from League 1 Charlton in January then loaned back - in their U23s starting shortly v Spurs, in a desperate move to stave off relegation and condemn our lads to the drop instead.

Clueless

1.) 08 May 2022 14:26:43
Doesn’t really matter what anyone else does clu, fact is Radz and Orta have simply undone all the good work put in to get both sides promoted by neglect and arrogance.

It’s time they shipped out. He doesn’t have the money needed to rebuild in the championship let alone the premier league. We pretty much need a new look back 4 new look midfield and new attack!


2.) 08 May 2022 15:21:03
Both good posts! Imo, of course.


 

 

29 Apr 2022 22:53:47
Will be just typical, andannoying, if Chelsea U23s manage to win one of their last 2 games, and our lads end up relegated to div 2 courtesy of an incorrectly disallowed winner at Arsenal this evening.

As Chelsea are under no real pressure for third spot, what are the chances that they do club legend Lampard a favour by contriving to lose at Goodison at the weekend? Apologies if I’ve missed someone else raising that prospect on here previously.

Clueless

1.) 26 Apr 2022 05:11:32
Clue It's for this perceived reason and fact that 3rd place not yet assured for Chelsea that I can't see that happening. Can only see a draw or away win. Lot of spotlight on Chelsea right now. They don't need extra attention in that way. Tuchel will surely have them professionally prepared for maximum Funtime suffering.


2.) 26 Apr 2022 06:48:35
I was wondering about that as well Clu. I can't see Chelski doing the same for us, however.


3.) 26 Apr 2022 07:31:43
Tunchel owes frank nothing and needs to make sure his job is safe too with the new owners by securing 3rd to show other than the two best teams in the world right now he can compete.

I’d be surprised if we were interested in any of their clients, including Ampadu. Hasn’t exactly set he world alight at Venezia on loan.

Leeds are now alleged to have poured cold water on that supposed link, and to have suggested an agent was using Leeds’ name to hike up the asking price for his client.

Reports today that the Club is reluctant to let any further players go this month, despite earlier stories suggesting Summerville was likely to be leaving on loan.

Is in his second full first team season at Liege as a CM. Standard Liege play a multitude of formations, requiring him to be versatile in role, including CDM, though generally in a double pivot when doing so. Played in Europa League last season. Has played 67 games for them, with 3 goals and 7 assists.

Brighty, that’d be a no. Unfortunately he seems to have become very injury prone.

Sweatynutz - don’t even think that again, let alone say/ write it. I’d hate Raphinha, who has given us so much pure joy, to stain our memories of him by going to that bunch of sportswashing Saudi human rights deniers.

Indeed George. Many pundits, and indeed Leeds United content creators seem fixated on Marsch’s preference for RB style 4222 and keeping play narrow, but even at RB Salzburg he would use other formations, particularly when up against tougher opponents in European competition and, let’s face it, most of the teams faced in the Prem are stronger than the teams he was up against in the Austrian Bundesliga.

Hopefully his 12 match stint this season has shown him that you need to use width to create chances in this league. The only non-negotiable for Marsch would appear to be a high press, counter-pressing style, to turn the ball over quickly - and Liverpool under Klopp (who credits Rangnick for opening his eyes to the power of the high press, but has not adopted the so-called ‘Red Bull’ 4222) show that is very achievable while maintaining width.

Baz - I think you’ll find Victor Orta and Co are more than aware of those players.

Dillinger - I’d be happy with any/ all of those. We were linked with both Ola Aina (supposedly fell through due to injury to Torino’s new RB signing) and Seko Fofana in January, and were first linked with Nmecha in 2018. Orta is hopefully still tracking all three, but I guess other clubs will be too, so I hope that if we are working on any of them it’ll be under the radar until they turn up for a medical, ready to sign on the dotted line.

With Aaronson now signed, Orta is said to be hoping to tie up one or two further deals in the next couple of weeks, to get our plans for the summer off to a decent start.
