Yorkshire Pirlo is staying. Best bit of non transfer news yet. Huge sigh of relief and optimistic that our beloved club are showing some real ambition.

Aus agrees.

And starting talks over a new contract! Bonus!

Ross McCormack has reportedly been suspended by Melbourne City. The fly tipping, badge kissing sweaty sock, who is currently on loan at the Australian A-League side, was a surprise exclusion from Melbourne's squad for their match against Brisbane Roar last week. McCormack is alleged to have arrived late to training ahead of the match and was subsequently left out of the squad. Trouble with his electronic gates again I wonder? MM

What do you mean we haven't managed to replace Sawd? there are loads of overweight fly-tippers in Leeds. Not as many as in North London granted, but still plenty to fill McBadgekisser's shoes.

Hey Lucas, don't be bitter, just because you bet on about fifty different managers lol! On my holibobs tomorrow, so when I'm back I hope we've signed 10 more midfielders on four year contracts and NO more friggin defenders! See you all soon losers x DTP UTW MM

Enjoy mick I'll keep your sister in law warm for you ;)



11 Jul 2017 21:36:00
Caleb Ekuban signed for an undisclosed fee. I hate undisclosed fees, why can't they tell us. Anyhoo, I phoned my old mate Jeff and he assures me the fee was £18m with add-ons and if Jeff says it, you got to believe it! Must say I'm liking these four year deals, much better than one year loan with a view to a permanent. Shows faith in the player and the fact we're building for the future. Alioski almost done too - hope he can play centre half! Down The Pints, Up The Whites. MM

Mad Mick

1.) 11 Jul 2017 21:52:51
Couldn't agree more on many fronts, Mick. Hate undisclosed, means people can bitch about him being cheap. Love a 4 yr contract for a 23 yr old, because it means that there's been some serious scouting, and a few have seen some serious potential! Pints downing.

2.) 11 Jul 2017 23:40:28
Was touted as a low risk punt of about £450k when first linked, obviously don't know what we actually paid but it might not be far off after spending 7 years at Verona without a Lg game. Low price big sell on clause maybe.

3.) 12 Jul 2017 09:52:39
Howson to the smoggies was "undisclosed" and I bet he didn't come cheap!

4.) 12 Jul 2017 10:58:25
Ekuban seems to be Christiansen's choice, what with him being on APOEL radar. Christiansen was a striker and sees something in him. Could work out. Might not but, the same is true of all the new signings.

I was thinking yesterday whilst we were all anxiously waiting for 5pm and Yorkshire Pirlo to be sold, "why hasn't anyone bid for Pablo Escobaar? " After all, age beside, he is undoubtedly our best player and up there as one of the most gifted players in the Championship. Then the very same day Radz reveals that bids totalling £35m have been rejected for key players including Pablo. I just wonder which team bid for him and what sort of fee he would attract. One one hand, he's the best player in the league, a total top bins scoring megs machine, on the other hand he's realistically only got a couple of seasons in him at this level (more I hope) so not exactly one for the future. Can't imaging he's a Neil Warlock kind of player so I just wonder where the bid came from?

Any ideas?

MM Barnsleeds? They seem to have cash. Wouldn't surprise me if it was Canaries or Blades.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 11:07:40
Defo a bottom half PL club. He wouldn’t go to another club in the division for sure. Bids for Pirlo and Ayling also rejected, so from a perspective, you could say it’s been an excellent window!

I know you are still bitter and twisted about losing me, who wouldn't be, you're only human, but please change to Bitterexwivesbanter.com instead of taking out your bitterness towards me out on the superb hierarchy at my beloved LUFC.

Eddie Nketiah to Leeds move suffers breakdown!

Eddie Nketiah has been stuck in traffic on the A1 due to an accident at junction whatever. Police are on the scene and traffic is now flowing again. Nketiah is due in Leeds any time soon in what might go down in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest ever journey recorded from North London to Leeds. F**k me, we've been waiting all day for this!

Talking about farting, sharting and following through. I nearly did just that when I read on NN that Pablo Hernandez was going to be out for up to six months after knee surgery! WTF, where did this come from? No need to fear though it was simply those naughty NN minxes putting a story of the lesser known Pablo Hernandez who plies his trade in Chile up on the Leeds pages!

Just off to change my kecks.

Radz and Bielsa were taking a lot of flack from supporters before the season started letting certain players go - Pontus, Wilks and Peacock amongst others but Bielsa's stance has always been we will only sign players if they are better than what we already have. I know it's only one game and Pontus was everyone's favourite (not mine) but White looks like a great acquisition. If we replace Roofe (who is very injury prone) and add a couple more (Kent, the two lads from Inter) and don't sell Phillips, I think we will definitely be stronger than we were before Pontus was sold. Even if Harrison, Costa or Kent (if we sign him) play up top, either of those three would be a better option than Wilks and we still have players like Tyler Roberts, Jamie Shack and Jack Clarke to come back into the mix, so the doubters will have a bit of humble pie to eat after Thursday I reckon (and hope) . In Bielsa and Radz we trust!

Too true MM, still got to push a few over the line this week, but I think most people are going to look back and think we have had a very shrewd window!

5.) 06 Aug 2019 19:36:34
After just one game it’s to early to call, just look at last season, ring any bells.

6.) 06 Aug 2019 19:48:17
Think we'll have a better squad this time round Whiteman


7.) 06 Aug 2019 20:16:16
Not following your logic MM. When posters were questioning if we were strong enough it was before all these players were signed, sorry they are not signed yet are they. If we do make 3 or 4 additions obviously the squad will be stronger and that's what most were asking for.
Have we only just sold Peacock, top striker, hope we got good money for him.

8.) 06 Aug 2019 20:42:30
Got a feeling Kun will break through this season too. We have loads of younger ones chomping at the bit, waiting for their chance.

9.) 06 Aug 2019 23:19:13
The point I'm making bielsabud is whilst a lot of people were questioning what Radz was doing with some even suggesting he was making a few quid before selling up for a PSG takeover, this may have been the plan all along. Trim the squad of players Bielsa won't need and those who aren't disciplined (Pontus and BPF) , freeing up wages and leaving the nucleus of players who Bielsa trusts and only adding to them if players were better than he already has, which I have already said! I know we haven't signed those players yet but it looks like at least three will be incoming and we will have a stronger squad but the moaners were righting our owners and manager off before the transfer window had shut! Why didn't we sign so and so blah blah. we will be lucky to finish mid-table blah blah.

Typical Leeds fickle supporters. Lose a game - we're poor, win a game - we're going to win the league, sell Jannson - we show no ambition etc etc. Let's give those who run the club until the end of the transfer window before we call for their heads eh?


10.) 06 Aug 2019 23:52:43
You're right MM. Bielsa himself said on Sunday that we should judge the window when it closes.

I agree with you're thoughts that the plan for incomings this window was probably always a two stage process. Firstly to get in as many of Bielsa's top targets asap, then once the deadwood and any 'challenging' squad members had been moved on, assess which other targets were feasible both financially and in terms of their current clubs' readiness to sell/ loan. Looking hopeful for further decent additions, but I guess we'd best not count those chickens 'til they've hatched.

IF we do get in another forward and GK, I hope we let Edmondson and Huffer go out on loan to get some decent senior experience, with Miazek as main U23 keeper.

11.) 07 Aug 2019 00:01:41
Correct MM. 100 % agree. ⚽️⚽️⚽️MOT.

12.) 07 Aug 2019 00:23:04

13.) 07 Aug 2019 07:34:27
Well let’s see who and if we get any more in shall we? We still have the awful Casilla and the liability Cooper and the not good enough Berardi. We should have been replacing those three at the first opportunity.

14.) 07 Aug 2019 07:46:02

Me, Clueless, Spanish and a few others have been manning the Ramparts of Positivity (Aus, another cliche to snort at) all summer. Attempting to beat back the Negative Neils with their doom and gloom at Radz, Orta, et all.

Were the hell have you been?

A couple of paragraphs from the fabled MM and dissent in the ranks is back to a low hum.

Completely agree Ox. Add Pablo to that mix of players. Surely if Radz was milking the club at least one of these would've gone. I think they've achieved in this window exactly what they set out to achieve. Trouble makers gone, squad trimmed of players who weren't going to be involved (with FFP in mind) , only quality added and money in the bank. Can't for the life of me agree with the negativity although everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but I'd suggest that we all look at the bigger picture. We have a better squad and are well equipped for promotion with money in the bank if we have to buy a couple of new players in January for the run in.

Last I remember he was talking some clap trap about being a personal advisor to Massimo Cellino and drinking Chivas Regal on his yacht whilst smoking Cuban cigars. Too much wacky baccy I reckon!

Wex, I used to share the same opinion of loan players, but I do believe that we have strengthened this transfer window and if we go up with this squad, I don't give a rats ass who the players belong to. Villa did it with Abraham, Sheffield Utd had a lot of loanees as they're better players so if we go up, we'll have plenty of money to buy decent replacements for these loaned players.

On another point, I though we had an option to buy Harrison? I hope so as i think he'll have a better season this season and don't want to see his value price us out of a move.

Totally agree ToryScum. All good players who could make the difference this year. Credit to Orta, Radz and the main man Bielsa. We'd never attract this calibre of player with some of the managers we've had over the last few years.

1970, I'd be delighted if we signed the keeper from France and the Gooner. Providing we keep Yorkshire Pirlo, I think that would be a result and we'll be a stronger team. However, I'm greedy and also want the two lads from Inter, Kent and Cameron whatshisface from Spurs. Then we can officially announce promotion!
