Read somewhere the other day about bielsa waiting to sign a new contract come end of the season. If I’m a possible new player I’m waiting to see if he signs or not and if he doesn’t who takes his place. I think it’s hampering our transfers with any potential new signings right now.


1.) 10 May 2021 07:15:43
Haven’t even finished the season and you’re complaining about no signings already? Haha.

2.) 10 May 2021 07:52:18
Please read again what I actually put. Thank you.

3.) 10 May 2021 09:09:12
“hampering our transfers with any potential new signings right now. ” Window isn’t open, so there isn’t a right now surely?

4.) 10 May 2021 10:46:45
We can't make any signings yet so how is this hampering them?

5.) 10 May 2021 11:14:50
This has always been Mr Bielsa's way, he is a man of morals and principle and does not believe he should be rewarded until the job is done. Also he negotiates the salaries for his staff within his own package so it is always more complicated. The situation was identical last season and the transfer window was huge for us as we were promoted to the Premier League, I would suggest that was as good a transfer window as we have ever had, not just for the first team but also the youth so to suggest Bielsa is in some way hampering any signings this summer is, in my humble opinion, utter piffle. Up the Whites, down the pints siblings.

6.) 10 May 2021 11:47:18
If you agree that one of the reasons a player signs for us is the chance to work for Marcelo Bielsa then any grain of doubt over the big mans destination next year may affect certain targets.

7.) 10 May 2021 12:13:21
So if for example we really are after de Paul, would de Paul agree to sign for us knowing we might end up with heckinbottom as our next manager if bielsa chooses to leave.

It’s the uncertainty and last window was brilliant but how many of our 1st choices did we get? I don’t know the answer.

I personally wouldn’t sign for a club and in particular a club in mid table if I thought bielsa wouldn’t be the manager. Mid table clubs attract mid table players. BIESLA attracts quality players but as above if he hasn’t committed how many players will.

That’s all I was trying to say. It seems it came
Across incorrectly as everyone’s response seems irrelevant to what I was trying to get across. Apologies.

8.) 10 May 2021 12:15:50
I don’t imagine on day 1 of the windows teams start bidding on players. They’ve usually lined their targets and know who’s coming.

9.) 10 May 2021 14:52:53
I think the point is more that Bielsa will give Radz and co his word he will stay way before he actually puts pen to paper. The board will already know if he is staying or not and the paperwork is a formality. Thus meaning I’d guess the none transfer window signings and negotiations for summer moves can take place with that in mind.
Unfortunately the papers have a habit of adding 2+2 and getting 37.5 and print fabrication to fill pages. Thankfully most fans don’t buy in to the media bull doo doo and see it for what it is.

10.) 10 May 2021 16:19:34
Loveawaydays Your post overbrimming with illogic. Bielsa won't take long to consider an extension due to the very notion you refer to. Why do you think a man of his intellect and integrity would do otherwise? Due to his highly principled albeit slight eccentric character, there'll be a gentleman agreement for him to decide once and for all by a particular deadline. My guess is that shall be by mid June. Plenty of time for inward transfers of quality.

11.) 10 May 2021 17:46:07
Any agent worth their salt would know how Bielsa operates, and should be able to read the mood music around the club - which most sensible pundits appear to believe indicates Bielsa is far more likely to sign than not, barring any totally left-field disagreement between him and the club’s owners and directors.

As I’ve said previously, what might make a difference for some players attracted to working with Bielsa would be if he were to commit for more than one year, though we all know that unfortunately that’s not very likely.

12.) 10 May 2021 19:54:50
The mood music around the hot-tub perhaps? Where's DJ?



11 Apr 2021 23:30:26
Obviously not all of them and possibly even none of them but of the 3 teams who will go down plus the 2 teams who may go down I’d look at bringing

Sheff Utd
Enda stevens

West Brom
Sam Johnstone

Harrison Reed

Callum Wilson


I don’t think it’s a good idea to buy many players from a relegated team as they have that losing mentality that needs breaking and if you had a team full of them it’s tough, so I’d only look to pick one or two up at the right price.


1.) 12 Apr 2021 00:10:30
Good post, Sam Johnstone, Maxim Possibly Harrison Reed (Aguissa Fulham) don’t think Brighton need to sell nor would sell to us much as we would love to see Ben return.

2.) 12 Apr 2021 00:49:25
Honestly, with some of the linked players we have had the last 12 months, if we are seriously looking at bringing in players like Aguero, Draxler, De Paul, etc. I'm not really bothered for anyone in those teams, not at the same standard.
That said if I had to pick any then we could do a lot worse than St Maxim and one of the keepers as a no 2 to replace Casilla, only at the right price though.

3.) 12 Apr 2021 05:30:27
Ampadu is on loan at Sheffield United from Chelsea and only likely as a loan.

4.) 12 Apr 2021 07:11:58
Think bottom 3 now are doomed so brighton and newcastle won't need to sell but, can't see Brighton selling lampety
Ben White would now be too much money, we have 3 good cd
Wilson injury prone
Maxim will go to a champions league team
Areola wages massive to sit on the bench
But yes to Reed and pierra.

5.) 12 Apr 2021 11:09:15
Got to agree with Richie. I too like Reid (both Harrison and Bobby) but mostly Perrera altho I hope you're wrong with Maxim. Would love him to come to Leeds.

6.) 12 Apr 2021 13:34:56
Agree with Richie there - the bottom 3 are looking doomed. Fulham's insurrection seems to have died a death recently and the Ne2castke win at the weekend has done them no favours. not sure we would even be interested in White now as we have cover for those positions now.

7.) 12 Apr 2021 17:26:59
I think the money can be spent far better elsewhere than a CB but now we ain’t “relegation competition” with Brighton maybe they will sell to us now 😂.

8.) 12 Apr 2021 19:07:11
Pereira at WBA looks a good player. Might be a boob signing Areola though!

9.) 13 Apr 2021 00:34:46
None of the Blades you name are good enough. Only one in their squad I would consider is Berge - already their best player, and Bielsa could take him to next level. Pity is that some of top six may be in for him, which may price us out of the market and/ or mean better value can be found elsewhere.



28 Jan 2021 23:33:24
None of us really know the whole finance situation at clubs and I wouldn’t want us to go for it or go broke but a few good signings and we genuinely could make a Europe dash.

Currently 6-9 points away from the spot but with a game in hand over Chelsea and Arsenal.

Our 2 centre backs yet to be full fitness and a few new faces could really push us up.

Having said that if we have no money due to c.v., I’d play it safe and be happy avoiding relegation.


1.) 29 Jan 2021 03:07:23
During the interview of the recent announcement of the SF49ers further investment in Leeds United.

Radz alongside new Vice President Paraag Marathe clearly stated in the interview there would be no player. recruitment in this January window.

In the interview Paraag Marathe impressed greatly and his list of achievements in his 20 years at SF49ers even more impressive.

2.) 29 Jan 2021 07:55:12
Still have a loan place available, Gilmour at Chelsea or Naitland Myles from Arsenal, both want regular footy, either would be good additions and wouldn't imagine massive wages
Or buy Harrison and loan both

3.) 29 Jan 2021 11:02:42
It just feels a shame they said no investment in January, again I don’t know the financial implications this is all having, but as a supporter I know bielsa isn’t around forever and now would be as good of a chance as we are going to have possibly for a long time if he leaves at the end of the season. If he stays next season I have faith but if he leaves, he’s basically leaving championship players playing premiership football.

4.) 29 Jan 2021 14:15:47
I think he won’t leave.
He will want another big summer transfer and a tilt at Europe.
He is only really going to retire after this so as long as he gets his own way. This is as good as it gets for him.
As long as he keeps us up and inching up the table we should Keep him.
He has his faults but win or lose against defend and maybe get a draw or sneak a win. No comparison. The prem league as in any league. Dosent lie.

5.) 29 Jan 2021 16:10:38
I think Bielsa now will want at least another year coaching Leeds and he craves the Leeds fans back in the stadium.

Radz and Marathe have also reventky been talking up Bielsa and the Leeds future together.

So fairly confident Bielsa will continue as Leeds coach next season

6.) 29 Jan 2021 17:20:27
I personally applaud Radz’s stance, and the fact that he has been open about it!
That said, I’d love us to go for Draxler before his contract expires!

7.) 29 Jan 2021 17:54:53
Yeah I agree with Radz, I think he is a wonderful chairman. Never really lies and commercial aspect has done wonders for us. As I was saying above purely as a fans point of view.



21 Jan 2021 22:04:20
Leeds are 12th, on 23 points and one game shy of the halfway point in the season. And we have yet to field our strongest team at any point. Injuries and disruption might affect every team the same, but then not every team is judged like Leeds United. So the only expectation that is worth worrying about is our own, the club and the fans, and against that context, we’re doing just fine.

The last paragraph from our very own famous website.

Well worth a look at regarding our situation and the expectations Leeds fans put on ourselves.




16 Jan 2021 09:39:02
Next few games we have a real chance to move well away from any chance of being dragged into and relegation battles (obviously other losing the rest of our games this season) with Brighton and Newcastle to play next could move us up, leaving the likes of Fulham, Sheffield and West Brom, Burnley all playing top teams in Man Utd, Liverpool, Man City and Spurs. It could be a real good couple of weeks for us.


1.) 16 Jan 2021 10:01:04
Yeah we need to beat the teams around us. Philips out is worrying me somewhat.

We could of yes George, but think bielsa knows roughly where he is at now and it makes me think and injury to bamford and he is our best option to put on the bench.

I can’t believe how far bamford has come to have even people being disappointed he didn’t make the England squad.

Unless I misinterpreted I think casilla will be playing against Brom too.

Casilla distribution is awful and was even worse than that yesterday.

His defenders don’t trust him so didn’t pass it much to him like they do meslier and he made me panic every time the ball came near our net

I’m glad he kept a clean sheet because I don’t mind the guy and was happy to see him make a few saves.

If it’s not just paper talk like it usually is then maybe he has being given a heads up the club is going out to sign an AM and his role will be limited next season therefore he is wanting first team football.
