Looking like Mario and Llorente could be deals.
Maybe one more to come after that?


1.) 22 Sep 2020 21:50:30
With 2 players possibly joining in quick succession, could be a case of Super Mario bros 😂🚗.



02 Sep 2020 14:57:46
Looks like De Paul deal is taking a while to get sorted, not good.


1.) 02 Sep 2020 16:39:12
Media reports that he prefers a move to Juventus.

2.) 02 Sep 2020 16:48:45
There are no real indications anything is wrong in the press, apparently a 35million Euro deal has been agreed and terms have already been agreed with De Paul himself so sounds like we could see something happen before the end of the week.

3.) 02 Sep 2020 18:17:40
Wouldn't we all George but other media indicating Juve aren't interested.

4.) 03 Sep 2020 15:16:02
Seen reports that he has agreed terms with Leeds and another he is holding out for juventus to come in and bid for him. If we are second choice then rather we look elsewhere, guy doesn't think we are worthy. Still think we need a decent back up keeper and another centre half. Would rather take Wilson from Liverpool for £20 million than spend £30+ on De Paul!

5.) 03 Sep 2020 19:34:57
Left out of unidese friendly tonight things may still work out for us you never know I hope he does sign MOT.

6.) 04 Sep 2020 06:50:57
Football doesn't work that way any more though Mezzer. He is Italian, Juve are their top club and currently dwarf us in terms of finances, trophy winning potential and Champs league football. Lad would be daft not to fancy a move to them but that doesn't mean it will happen or that he won't give his all if the 'dream' move doesn't materialise.

7.) 04 Sep 2020 06:56:50
Sorry meant he is in Italian football - De Paul is of course Argentinian.



29 Nov 2019 13:36:56
All the talk of Vydra deal already having been done, does that give the impression he might be training, if not with the squad, but to Balsa's guidance, fitness levels etc, so as to hit the ground running in January. get him up to speed in November and December
He scored 22 goals for rams in this league so knows what its about, he has also been well rested.
Is he coming as part of the final payment due on the Woods deal?
There appears to be yardage in this rumour.


1.) 29 Nov 2019 17:46:04
Bit of wishfull thinking in there 70 but I do wish it was true. Get him and play him straight away.

2.) 01 Dec 2019 00:32:20
In a word, no.

3.) 04 Dec 2019 10:28:17
Apparently he’s not even on our list.

4.) 04 Dec 2019 13:46:36
Phil Hay quoted he definitely won't be coming!

5.) 07 Dec 2019 16:55:05
I wouldn't want him, don't think he is a premier league striker. Would rather we trusted Nketiah and Edmondson than spend heavily on Vydra, unless someone truly proven in the prem or much younger wit more potential than Vydra. His attitude when we tried to sign him initially doesn't endear him to me either.

6.) 08 Dec 2019 19:40:32
Much of the talk now is for Cenk Tosun and/ or Brewster.



06 Nov 2019 13:21:38
On the possible sale of the club to QSI, bearing in mind to take most of these stories with a pinch of salt. Saying that the story is not going away and at the end of the most recent article from L@Equipe the most telling line for me was.

"L'Equipe reached out to Radrizzani for an update, but they were told the Italian would not be able to comment on the ongoing discussions. "

If this is the case and while a sale might never happen, stating that Radrizzani would not be able to comment makes me think negotiations are currently taking place and he is bound by a confidentiality agreement, which is normal in these circumstances.


1.) 08 Nov 2019 13:33:40
Or he is just busy doing other things and a Journo wants to make a story out of nothing.



06 Nov 2019 12:10:36
On the ongoing negotiations, the entourage added: "There are real discussions, but it's a slow-moving file. But it can go faster tomorrow. "
L'Equipe are of the belief Leeds are estimated to cost QSI around €60-80m and responding to it, QSI source stated: "That's not wrong. "

If the deal to take over Leeds materialises, it will give QSI a potential future headache as UEFA rules don't allow two clubs involved in a European competition to be owned by a single entity.

"The right people will ask themselves the right questions to know how to do it, but we are very far from it, " the entourage said.

Meanwhile, L'Equipe reached out to Radrizzani for an update, but they were told the Italian would not be able to comment on the ongoing discussions.


1.) 07 Nov 2019 20:48:36
I imagine that if QSI are looking to purchase Leeds United Football Club for approx £75m then they must be taking on all the incumbent debt too. By which I mean the remaining payments on all the recent outgoing transfer fees etc.
To my mind the low-ish transfer fees that have come in (Viera, Taylor etc) , in recent times, seem to hint at most of the money has been paid up front and there will be little if any further payments coming in. Nothing for QSI to offset against those that need paying in the future.

Also, at that price, i hope they are buying Elland Road, which isn't actually owned by LUFC.

Otherwise that is a lot of money for a EFL team that only manages to break even despite the largest share of TV revenue and a global fanbase.

2.) 08 Nov 2019 13:35:12
I doubt we got transfer fees up front. Didn’t usually work that way these days.

Davies at Left Back, Gotts at Right Back and Stevens on Left wing.
Has anyone any insight as to how close these players are to being good enough.
How far away are they from being up to Shacks standard or level.


1.) 23 Sep 2020 18:06:59
Here we go injuries already, just has be our luck,

2.) 23 Sep 2020 18:14:09
Gotts and Stevens will go out on loan probably for a year, so not close to the first team squad now. Davis has been given a bit more of a shout, he might be kept around depending on who else comes in.

3.) 23 Sep 2020 21:42:59
Stevens loaned to Swindon already agreed. Gotts will follow. I agree Spanish re Davis, but would rather he too goes out on loan, to build match experience. It’s vital that these lads keep developing in match situations.

4.) 23 Sep 2020 22:13:34
Can't see any of them featuring this year.

5.) 23 Sep 2020 22:22:11
Tend to agree Berm, every season since he has been at the club I’ve said time to let cooper go time to let cooper go but He has improved hugely under Bielsa but I genuinely don’t think he is good enough for the prem . I’ve also been impressed with Strujk, he can also cover midfield so is very valuable as Bielsa certainly likes versatile players.



13 Sep 2020 12:21:24
Some very good posts, after a performance that showed what we are all about.
Liverpool needed the benefit of a poor decision to get something out of that game.
All the pundits that said Liverpool were below par, not for me they were trying their best and were only allowed to play as well as Leeds let them play.
Souness said after the game its the first time he has seen an away team have more possession at Anfield than Liverpool.
Thought we were a little rusty and the new faces meant we were not as comfortable with in possession, added to the fact Liverpool are the hardest working and pressing team in the Prem, we didn't have as much time with the ball, our players will need to get up to the tempo of this league.


1.) 13 Sep 2020 14:46:58
1970 They were at their best but so we were so it induced errors in their play.



05 Sep 2020 17:41:01
Brace yourself Bermo, brace yourself!


1.) 05 Sep 2020 22:23:33
A cheeky albeit ephemeral reprieve.



30 Aug 2020 16:43:32
Think below is the full squad as it stands.
Maybe Douglas and Foreshaw will make way for a D Mid and CH. We could also do with another attacker like Pablo or Saiz .
Word is it might be Rodrigo de Paul?

1. Illan Meslier
25. Elia Caprile
13. Kiko Casilla

2. Luke Ayling
3. Barry Douglas
6. Liam Cooper
21. Pascal Struijk
15. Stuart Dallas
24. Leif Davis
10. Elgjan Alioski
36. Robbie Gotts
00. Oliver Casey
00. Koch

4. Adam Forshaw
23. Kalvin Phillips
43. Mateusz Klich
46.Jamie Shackleton

7. Ian Poveda
48 Jordan Stevens
17. Helder Costa
22. Jack Harrison

30. Joe Gelhardt
19. Pablo Hernandez
44. Mateusz Bogusz

11. Tyler Roberts
9. Patrick Bamford
00.Rodrigo Moreno.


1.) 30 Aug 2020 16:54:43
Imagine we might have the 2 Roddys come pool game 😂😂😂

What a line up.

2.) 30 Aug 2020 18:11:14
I like the look of that squad.

3.) 31 Aug 2020 07:14:39
Thanks for putting down the squad 1970.
Made me think that Foreshaw may have an important role to play this season as he can cover a few midfield positions. But can he stay fit?!
Still think we need an experienced keeper and possibly another CB but looking at the list of defenders we have SIX players who can/ have played that role!



25 Aug 2020 17:25:02
Remember that chant " what's that coming over the hill Enoch Showumni . Enoch Showumni"

Think we can change that now to

" what's that on Bermos @rse. Kalvin Philips .
its Kalvin Philips".


1.) 25 Aug 2020 17:42:48

2.) 25 Aug 2020 18:24:03
Someone needs to tell Sky. Stage an event like Rodney Marsh haircut with Bradford City. Berm could end up with the most famous bottom in the world.

Chris have you a decent source for this, rather than just journos rehashing headlines from other sites.

Think JC's advisers were trying to play one off against the other to get as much out of any deal as possible. Don't know if Clarke actually wanted to go, so they had to start a blame game to sell the move to JC, running Leeds down to sell the idea of the move to a reluctant JC might be one way of looking at it. Who knows? One thing that must be remembered is no one is bigger than the Club.

George, for the benefit of dating of contracts the 1st of July maybe important as a date, it might have a bearing on financial fair play years. The season/ year running from 1st July 19 to 30th June 20.

George think you have to use both systems firstly by coaching young players with potential up to the level required, opposite this is the need to bring in the finished article with the quality and ability to hit the ground running, who can play Bielsa's system and maybe still have room for improvement.

Add Gelhardt, Shacks, Stevens and Poveda who will all be challenging them for game time. All a season older.

Hope we can get Koch and another two new faces .

Manutd won't want a penalty for this one. Could be the 24th penalty of the season.

Stones from City could be a player Bielsa might like at the right price. Looked like he was the real deal a couple of seasons back. Loan with option to buy.

Also Kinnear states today there will be additional investment over the next 12 months, with Leeds being viewed as the biggest opportunity in world football.

Think they plan to consolidate, attract new investment and they try and kick on with top six and regular European football as the target.

All any of us should want is solid foundations, competing for top six every season, without the risk of going broke. If we can get that level of consistency, you evolve into a team that has a chance of winning trophies.
