Leeds fans have been screaming the need for another CB at Radz since Janson sold.

I'm trying to remain optimistic there is a twist in the remaining days of the transfer window for us to strengthen with experience to support younger players stepping up, and not rely on deadwood cloggers.

I know many may think Dallas needs replacing but let's not forget what a useful utility player he is, IMO he was our stand out player in second leg playoff last season.

Onwards and upwards.


1.) 27 Jul 2019 16:15:10
Dallas did do well in that second leg, but he has been here long enough to force his way in as a regular, but he has failed to do so despite chance after chance. Decent squad man, but that's all for me.

2.) 29 Jul 2019 18:20:41
He’s moved about that much it would be hard to be a regular in a regular position. He’s happy too play where he is put and he benefits the team. And gives 100% always.



16 Jul 2019 13:23:05
Read a news feed linking us to ongoing discussions with Gary Cahill. Probably media Trollope as usual.

Can't deny would be very happy if it was true and could forgive his chelski past should he sign for Leeds.




30 Jun 2019 15:36:12
It sounds like there are some positive moves about transfers for us this next week.
Does anyone know if there is any mileage in the Luke Freeman rumour that we are hoping to bring him in. I hope there is.

Onwards and upwards.


1.) 30 Jun 2019 23:22:47
Good player but I sense not for us.

2.) 01 Jul 2019 08:43:31
We're not currently making any moves for Freeman.

3.) 01 Jul 2019 21:10:08
Shame about that alftupper!

Something gone down with Leeds United shares as received email this afternoon from company check updates about Leeds United. It refers to shares but Doesn't allow me access to further information.


1.) 09 Jun 2019 22:49:38
Just checked company's house website for Leeds United and there is a lot of things relating to shares but I don't understand what it means, something about radz and 75%.

2.) 09 Jun 2019 22:58:13
What does that mean?

3.) 09 Jun 2019 23:43:18
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.

4.) 10 Jun 2019 07:52:27
Yeah, reading through this morning I think the relate to the 49ers buying 25% for 11million. So nothing new.

5.) 10 Jun 2019 08:25:37
This is all the paperwork related to the 49ers investment last year. Nothing in itself to be excited about, unless it has been prompted by them doing some preparations for other share issues/ sales during/ in advance of due diligence.

Bielsa signs contract for a further season, BRILL!

Well done Radz for getting this quickly dealt with 😀👍.


1.) 28 May 2019 12:35:56
I love a bit of continuity good news in my opinion mot.

2.) 28 May 2019 12:48:15
It's a decent sign, Bielsa has a history of leaving if he doesn't get what he feels he needs. Radz must have given him certain assurances. Need to get a move on though, particularly in the free agent market. Radz says loans or quality free agents. The quality free agents will be snapped up soon.

3.) 28 May 2019 14:15:43
Who are the free agents out there worth having.

4.) 28 May 2019 14:45:06
Nasri, Carzola, Cahill, Sturridge, Ribery, Wellbeck, Milner? an not see them ending up here though.

5.) 28 May 2019 15:36:33
Start off with a decent goalkeeper please.

Very happy with squad, we are stronger in depth than last season in terms of attacking. Really happy we are top of the league.

What disappoints me is we are not scoring more goals, even on today's performance we were not fully at the races but showed we can still dominate and win. If I didn't know better I would start to believe MB has the team drilled not to shoot on goal until every twenty passes have been completed!
This is my only gripe of our team and I worry it will be our undoing again if we don't quickly get into the habit of killing teams off.

Onwards and upwards.


1.) 17 Aug 2019 18:42:14
iBook yes a win is a win don’t matter about anything else .

2.) 17 Aug 2019 20:15:44
I dunno it’s hard to break teams down sometimes when they shut up shop particularly with 10 men. I’m happy enough with that result especially after what happened last season.



10 Aug 2019 14:23:06
We can play great football and dominate but Jesus Christ's we are also very frustrating 🤬.

How the hell can Derby afford Wayne Rooney and comply with FFP? .


1.) 06 Aug 2019 17:23:39
It is unbelievable Bilko, I wonder if we will hear the true cost for Derby to get him. Joins in January at the end of the MLS season, but even then will still have a year left on his contract. Last night they had more Coaches on the touchline than Wallace Arnold.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 17:28:16
They're not paying him. He only asked for an annual subscription to the local old lady brothel apparently! 😂😂.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 18:15:46
Shame we couldn’t find someone like him or may twoq.

4.) 06 Aug 2019 18:21:33
Thought they'd learn their lesson with Fat Frank. Must've been paying him a decent wage to end up finishing sixth, exactly the same position they ended up the season before!


5.) 06 Aug 2019 19:02:58
Derby use the ground to comply with ffp so can shimmy round Rooney wage however if they are footing the bill for his borthel habits they got no chance must cost a routine and be better off singing Ronaldo.

6.) 06 Aug 2019 19:04:01
Just heard 32red are “contributing” to the costs

His shirt number is .32

Well that’s that’s within the “spirit of the rules” you absolute hypocrites Direby

Imagine the uproar if Leeds tried that.



02 Aug 2019 11:10:39
If Roofe and Phillips leave this window at the fees being suggested, GK to Burnley happened already and Tom Pearce wants to leave.

My maths make that around roughly £26 million in Radz's kitty!

Do you think it would all go on transfers replacements or do you think it would be banked.?

Who would you buy to replace BPF, Roofe and Phillips plus CB if the choice was yours?

I wouldn't replace BPF, I disagree with MB about V. Anita and would use him in Phillips position as he can play there. I would sign Gayle to replace Roofe, other striker links aren't any good IMO. CB would be Ashley Williams.

Maybe bring in Andy King and Wes Hoolahan on freebies, both versatile players.

Personally I would take £15 mill for KP now.


1.) 02 Aug 2019 11:25:19
No way re Anita.
He is the only defender I have ever seen scared to tackle. The bloke is absolutely wuss!

2.) 02 Aug 2019 11:34:39
IBilko Ever heard of a LUFC player called McCalmont? Think you'll find he is significantly better than Anita.

3.) 02 Aug 2019 12:18:43
Agree 100% with original post also agree mcclamont and the other young fella we got who looks like could play defensive mid

If we sold Roofe and Phillips and brought in one good centre back and striker I’d be over the moon and think value and Williams would do very good job.

4.) 02 Aug 2019 12:51:37
Aus, a great DM doesn't need to tackle!
A major part of that role (IMO the part that KP has improved the most on) is delaying and hustling a player rather than trying to tackle.
Delay them and make them try to beat you more often than not results in them losing the ball through a poor pass or bad ball control.
Patience is the key along with positioning in that role.



01 Aug 2019 12:17:26
Dont agree we've gone backwards!

Our problem last season and I could still see it happening in our pre-season friendlies was we lost our way in front of the opposition goal. We at times don't play the obvious simple passing option in front of goal, or we are overly patient in build up play to open up defences. I lose count The amount of times I'm yelling SHOOT when that's the obvious option, we don't and pass it around and the attack breaks down. This is what frustrates me most about our play.

But I believe we have a versatile squad who are capable of another great season. Yes another CB would be nice, let's see how we are fairing at Xmas when we'll know if need to buy.


1.) 01 Aug 2019 12:49:06
Sorry mate but got to say we don’t need to wait till Christmas I agree with everything you say but defence is far bigger problem it was not only over passing and having al of the balk but not shooting it was also them having one attack one long ball or one set piece and scoring we are so weak in defence and have gone backwards there

I fear if we wait till Xmas it may already be too late.

2.) 01 Aug 2019 13:09:24
It’s becoming apparent that we ain’t gunna sign anymore.
Shame but it’s looking that way.

3.) 01 Aug 2019 14:11:50
Bermo, one question for you:

'If it is so obvious that without a new CB we will fail why haven't we signed one? '

4.) 01 Aug 2019 14:24:08
Shutt Because Bielsa lives in cloud cuckoo land. He ain't called El Loco for nowt. Looks like we will play more 3-1-3-3 formation so Bielsa's need in his mind for another central defender is reduced plus he clearly doesn't get along with the big intimidating burly alpha male type but that's the kind of player we need at the back.

Agree Ox, no complaints about how Radz is running the club. I would rather we are promoted without over spending above what we can afford.
We’re making progress and last season showed what happens when fine tuning is done sensibly.

Onwards and Upwards.

Hey, no doubt would be a great acquisition, only concern is if the rumour of Burnley interest in klitch has momentum who do we have to mix it up in the midfield? Teams are going to route one us attacking through centre while we are plan A - get the ball and attack out wide with no plan B of having good attacking options in the middle.

Just a concern, hope it makes sense. I’m sure MB will have this in mind.

Onwards and upwards.

We need to keep Klich IMO .

If true and the club entertain these rumours they really do need their heads looking at and a large foot up the backside. Klitch is IMO a must not sell player. If I was Radz and co I’d be slapping £20 million price tag on Klitch.
Bearing in mind he’s my favourite player.

We had our chances to maintain our great season start Swansea weren’t better than us but they grew in confidence the longer he game went on without us scoring. A scruffy win for them.

Not Bamford’s day at all yesterday. If I could ask MB to change one thing it would be to tell players if they have a opportunity to shoot then go for it. When teams set up against us defensively like Swansea did yesterday like running into a brick wall, MB surely realises we have stop trying to score the perfect goal.

It’s one loss, plenty of football to be played yet.

Onwards and upwards.

Pontus sealed his fate with MB in that last game against the Villians, he clearly demonstrated he was unhappy about giving them free walk in goal. It’s MB way or the highway.

Wish Pontus well but Ben White is an upgrade by far who I hope can stay fit.

Can’t disagree with that Spanish, as you say a win against Swansea will top season start of nicely.

Really enjoyed the game yesterday, that Dallas goal and the build up was something else. Great to see the lads having a few more punts at goal from outside the area rather than trying to walk the ball into the net.

Pablo more involved in the central role yesterday and great he had captains armband.

Onwards on upwards 👍.

We have it in us to beat anyone in this league, home or away, that includes Brentford. We’re definitely stronger as a team than last year and I don’t think we have barely got out of third gear yet. For me the more games we win from season start and continue to win then winning becomes a habit we need to create.

It’s making the possession count and opportunities need to become goals. If it’s not working for Patrick tomorrow I’d like to see Eddie unleashed for the last 20 - 30 minutes.

I thought Bamford had a good game today, getting into better goal scoring opportunities. He’ll be hitting back of the net regular before long.
