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.

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 😀👍.

IBilko

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.


 

 

21 Jan 2019 19:52:53
Desperately in need of reassurance we are not going to sell Jack Clark, and definitely not cheaply?

IBilko

1.) 21 Jan 2019 21:09:28
Ok, Jack Clarke, NOT FOR SALE.


2.) 21 Jan 2019 21:23:52
No chance this transfer window. Why would we sell the brightest talent in the league, while we are top, and pushing for promotion, unless the money offered was just stupid. That and I don’t think the lad would want to go!


3.) 22 Jan 2019 02:33:18
Just seen some proper claptrap on NewsNow, Clarke sale to fund transfer! made me chuckle.


4.) 22 Jan 2019 09:09:34
They’re embarrassing, sell JC to 'fund' the purchase of another player for the same amount?

Does no one proof read stuff anymore or are they all aged 12 writing this stuff?

JC not for sale

He’s going to be worth £50 plus as a premiership player and even then I’d not sell.


5.) 22 Jan 2019 11:14:16
Won't sell Clarke this window unless it was 50 mil+.


6.) 22 Jan 2019 11:51:56
Will not be going anywhere this window. It will be his dream to take Leeds back to Premiership and he will not want to miss that.


 

 

20 Oct 2018 20:50:09
Think we took a bit to get going today, half-time came at the wrong time as we were beginning to get the game by the scruff of the neck with a goal.

Thought Cooper played well (and I'm always usually critical of him) . Phillips, Siaz, Klich had good games.

Roberts invisible for long periods.

Here's back to winning ways on Wednesday.
MOT.

A sensible post, well done. :)

Hopefully we can move the likes of O'kane, and Anita out on loan this week, free up some wages for hopefully CB and winger/ CM coming in.
Is Ekuban still with us or has he gone already.

MB is setting out the way forward for how we train, approach games, and play. Great blueprint. Bit like Wilkinson when he came in, he knew what needed changing.

Looking forward to Peston and smoggies games hoping we can keep this momentum going.

IBilko

1.) 27 Aug 2018 11:44:31
Ekumiss still here.


2.) 28 Aug 2018 08:44:45
Oh no he isnt.


3.) 28 Aug 2018 14:00:31
Ekuban on his way apparently but not a done deal yet. Turkey.

Been following Leeds United since I was 5 years old (1968) ; if my memories serve me well about our club and football success in general.
1. Clubs who make bids for quality players do so early.
2. This says to the fans, the club, and the rest of the footballing community "we mean business to win'
3. When Leeds have followed this route we've enjoyed good times, I'm thinking of Wilkinson era especially.
The O'Leary Reign too while it lasted, but who knew the full extent at the time from the terraces what financial chaotic decisions were going on in the board room and the consequences.!
4. Leeds aren't tripping themselves up to make any significant bids on decent players so far but is that because we're skint?
5. Bielsa is on a tidy contract we're to believe, would he agree to stay if Radz had not given assurances about quality loans and transfers. I would doubt this.
6. Radz stated when he took over if he felt he could not improve the club and take it further he would sell so he must feel he has funds to continue.
7. MB has allegedly told Radz he can't improve the fortunes of the team with current squad, needs better players.
8. Radz and MB hopefully have learned small squad doesn't last distance, injuries and suspensions.

If we're not signing 3 - 4 players plus loans in the next month we'll be going backwards.

If only we could cook up some of the Don's recipe today. The Manc City, Chelski, and Liverpool, Barcelona of today would not be a patch on his Leeds team, on or off the pitch!

A sensible post, however, looking back on last years pre season neither Sheffield United nor Norwich bought big at the beginning of the transfer window.

I think we all gace to realise that financially we are not a big club anymore. The PL giants feast at the table before anyone else. Guys like us have to wait and see who is left and available. the money has to work it's way down to our level.

Personally I believe we will lose 2 first teamers to higher placed clubs this pre season. But which two I couldn't tell you. And until we know who the departures are I doubt we can go looking for replacements. So hence all the media speculation about we need wingers. That is a position we could use some extra quality anyway (Henandez, Alioski, Clarke, Roberts, Wilks don't seem to be enough cover! )

I would give Bamford till January as I think the mans got goals in him and put last season down to adjusting to our high intensity playing style. Giving him the benefit of doubt for his 'silly antics' at lack of fitness and sharpness due to injury.

I would like to see another forward loaned or purchased if MB isn't going to give Edmondson a fair run.

Definitely need to bring in better wide players who can deliver better crosses, corners, and free kicks as this was mega frustrating.

Been saying for yonks we need a Strachan, MaCallister, Speedo, or Batty type midfielder who has an engine like a Ferrari and can box to box it, chip in with goals. Barry Bannan springs to mind.

Alfie Inge Haalands son looks like a great young player, should we bring him in? He would do for me as a first teamer.

Definitely NO to Adoma, villa reject.

What do you put the 3 seasons Bamford had before last season.


2.) 31 May 2019 15:48:26
Down too.


3.) 31 May 2019 16:30:05
Sorry to say but bam bam not what he was, can’t see him getting 10, was a poor replacement for wood, had we had him we would have gone up,


4.) 31 May 2019 16:36:15
Haaland under contract and a sizeable deal until 2023 with Salzburg Red Bull. Apparently though he may come to ER when Red Bull buy us on the 4th of Never.


5.) 31 May 2019 21:00:41
Wood was not mobile enough to play under Bielsa. We wouldn’t have gone up with him in the side either.


 

 

15 May 2019 22:34:09
Some players let us down big style and some players stood up to the challenge tonight. So so disappointed and feeling angry at same time.

I know we are trying to build through investing in solid grass roots in youth teams but we're not going to get out this league for a while if we don't spend on two or three quality additions.

Really hurt watching Derby fans and team celebrating as they did in our ground. Take note Radz.

Bamford was a waste of space and money. Hernandez is feeling the effects of a tough campaign and been off the boil post Millwall game.

I'm calming down now and more accepting of result, though I can't help feel we shot ourselves in the foot and gave this to Derby on a plate when it was easier to go on and wrap the game up.

Here's to getting ready for the Leeds United roller coaster next season and what it brings.

Despite tonight's result it's been a fantastic season and we have graced this league and the football world with some brilliant football.

Hope Kiko is getting blasted for F'ing about outside the box. Communicate with defenders, this is going to give me a heart attack.

Roofe should start before Bamford. Bamford s goals have been welcome, but for me he goes down too easy, gives stupid free kicks away which breaks up our play and momentum and gets caught offside too often.
I'm hoping Bamford will come right next season and we benefit more from his eye for goal which he has shown at other clubs. It's possible he is still adjusting to MB style of play and in fairness I think his injuries haven't helped his overall fitness levels.

Chris Wood had a poor first season for us but after that he really got into his stride and was leagues top scorer before going to Burnley. Pleased to see it's working alright for him there.

I have been a massive critic of Cooper over the past couple of seasons, mainly for his Rugby style approach to defending. I have to applaud him this season under MB he has been Very good this season.

He’s a great player and hopefully this is not just another pie in sky rumour. His dad Dougie had only positive things to say about us after his brief playing spell with us. Maybe he can influence Luke.

Axe if that’s your assessment and opinion of Cooper then fair enough. Personally I think his idea of keeping the opposition quiet is a combination of wrestling and rugby.
Liability is ‘red card’ Cooper, he will cost us with his poor football discipline.

When we tappy lappy around with the ball around our defence, I’m having kittens, it’s a disaster waiting to happen and 2nd leg play off showed our frailties. Cooper always gets in a panic and is exposed for the poor defender he is but he’s not alone there.

We could have and should have signed Tommy Elphick who was a free agent but we’ve let Huddersfield get in before us. Elphick is much better than what we have and would’ve been ideal alongside Pontus. We need to sign a decent decent CB.
Instead we’re still chasing youth for small change.
Missed out on Reece Brown (Fleetwood) .

Just feeling really annoyed about Huddersfield get Elphick, so so seriously should have been a Leeds player now.

Think our GKs are good enough, CB in is a must and they need to be better than Cooper who should be relegated to the bench. I appreciate he had a much improved last season but he’s not a leader and he has an irrational impulsive rabbit in the head lights streak just like Berardi.

Denton and Appo, Diaz, Wilks, Edmondson, bring into first team set-up more.

Be interesting to see who we offload, De Brock, Berardi, Anita, Sako, O’kane.

Hopeful Incomings for me, Luke Freeman (QPR) , O’Dowda (Bristol C) , Costa (Wolves - No dithering) , Barry Bannan or Forrestieri (Sheffield Wed) - both would be great!
Che Adams (Brum) , Alfie Haaland’s son,

Possible FREEBIES to consider - Tommy Elphick, Daniel Sturrige, Craig Noone, Lee Gregory, Charlie Adam, James Collins, Ashleigh Williams (free agents) .

Just food for thought and would hope, MB, Radz, and Orta are already on the case 😜⚽️👍.

Villa and other clubs should be penalised for being villa and so on and so on.
If it was Leeds the amount of protests would be astronomical and we would be playing Gateshead next season.
What are villa alleged to have done?
😂🤣.

Radz is either very niaive, arrogant, or totally ignorant about football if he does believe he can steer us back to the prem on a shoestring.

I thought Bielsa is alleged to have informed Radz he has gotten the best he can out of current squad and no room for improvement without moving some players out and bringing in better replacements.

Radz himself has stated several times he is keen to bring investment to the club.

Hopefully the Manager situation can be res9lved ASAP, my view is if MB decides he’s not staying it will be because club can’t match/ fund his transfer ambitions at this time.

It would be reassuring to know the club are concentrating on an already identified wanted list now and learning lessons from January’s farce.

Dallas, Shackleton, Harrison, Ayling, and Klich turned up, rest stayed in the dressing room. Bamford has never turned up.
