I hope this Collins from Burnley is just paper talk . 25 million for a CB that we don't need . I'd rather play Cresswell and spend 25 on a forward.


1.) 19 Jun 2022 20:00:22
I agree mighty and a good un too.

2.) 19 Jun 2022 22:14:51
25mil seems a bit steep.

3.) 19 Jun 2022 23:04:33
Seems a lot steep for an inexperienced player currently at a relegated club. But hopefully that won’t stop the Saudis splashing out for him for their north eastern sportswashing venture.

{Ed001's Note - I hope not as he is an excellent player.}

4.) 20 Jun 2022 05:32:32
Cluey Ed001 is right. Get Uncle to bid for him. ??.

5.) 20 Jun 2022 08:33:13
George - firstly Uncle Victor would not put great store on my suggestions, and secondly buying Collins wouldn’t be a great signal to Charlie Cresswell, unless re were to sell Llorente this summer and intended moving Robin on next year

Ed1 - in that case, perhaps the Kloppmeister should go in for Collins, then loan him out to agent Gerrard, who supposedly has some interest in the lad.

{Ed001's Note - we already have too many. We really need to get rid of one rather than bring in more.}

6.) 20 Jun 2022 13:39:04
Cluey Moving on Llorente is what I had in mind but can tell JM likes him.

7.) 20 Jun 2022 19:22:12
Ed is right. Collins a real talent. Can play RB too.



13 Jun 2022 18:03:44
Apparently a Man City source has told website football insider they have Submitted a bid for KP and Guardiola is a big admirer of the player .




22 May 2022 22:40:59
Greenwood and Geldhart should be a big part of our club next season .
The post match presser A guy said to Jesse picking greenwood was a big call, Jesse laughed and said it was an easy call to make . I liked that.




19 May 2022 22:26:52
We need to get some balance back to the team and get Raph to a position he can effect the game .
Meslier Shackleton at right back not raphina strujk Lorente firpo
Phillips klich Bate in central mid with Raph and harrison on wings and if bamford if this is even possible? Or Geldhart if not.




31 Aug 2020 22:18:35
Seeing rumours about Tyler Roberts and Derby . For me NO WAY
He is 21. He has potential, Bielsa I think likes him . Keep him.


1.) 01 Sep 2020 00:33:28
Mighty Agreed. In the words of HIB, tell the Rams to fork off.

2.) 01 Sep 2020 11:56:10
George my Boy! I taught you well.

28 Jun 2022 20:41:06
So looks like Raph going to Chelsea, come on surely we can get a loan deal for Broja and or Gallagher for a season as well.


1.) 28 Jun 2022 22:08:40
Happily swap both of them for Raphinia mighty, proven at playing in the premier league.

As for De ketlaere that’s another Rodrigo de Paul in disguise, love it to be true, but we’re not in that league sad to say.

As was the case with Roca, it will probably be people we’ve never previously heard of until we sign them.

2.) 28 Jun 2022 22:51:07
I've never heard of De ketlaere tbh.



28 Jun 2022 10:40:04
De ketlaere is on 14k a week at Brugge and around 34 million value I think we could afford him but if Milan and spurs are looking at him then I think it's going to be hard to turn down CL football.


1.) 28 Jun 2022 12:31:38
Spurs would be a bad move for him, with their front 3 it would be difficult to get much game time.

Milan, we’ll they seem to after everyone we apparently are.

Still wouldn’t be sure the CDK rumours aren’t just smoke n mirrors, I mean this lad is one of the top prospects in Europe so realistically why would he seriously consider coming to us.

2.) 28 Jun 2022 13:40:30
If he did come we would likely have to pay way more than 14k per week. We may be able to offer more gane time than the others otherwise it may be a tough sell.

3.) 28 Jun 2022 13:50:23
We can offer him first team football, in a World Cup year, that’ll be important to him.

4.) 28 Jun 2022 15:07:27
Well yeah I’m saying he is on 14k, my point is if we sign him then based on what he is on now he is affordable . We could probably tripe
Or quadruple his salary .

5.) 28 Jun 2022 16:29:07
Reports in Italy suggest that an attacking midfielder is AC Milan’s no. 1 priority this summer, with CDK supposedly their sole target for that position - with Hakim Ziyech said to be a target as a winger, though he’s actually played more often AM to date. It is suggested that Club Brugge’s asking price is higher than AC Milan can afford at the moment.

It will certainly be a hard sell to convince the lad to come here, and may slightly depend on the position he sees himself developing within. If he wants to play primarily as a striker, we may just have a faint chance, as Orta and Marsch apparently envisage him in a second striker or false 9 role - and would probably pitch that to him if given the chance - whereas AC want him as an AM.

CDK has previously suggested that he sees the Prem as the best league in terms of challenge and development, but of course Leicester continue to have an interest in him too, though thankfully they can’t offer European football either next season.

Apparently CDK is very keen that wherever he goes his girlfriend will be able to continue her dental studies ‘in a good way’. Of course Leeds Uni has a very good dental school - apparently ranked 91 in the world this year. Unfortunately, Milan ranks 26th - though that Uni sucks comparatively overall - and I’m guessing both CDK and his girlfriend will both have reasonable English but maybe not so strong on Italian.

Apparently his current teammate Simon Mignolet may have put him off going to the Saudi humbugs, having advised him there’s not much to do in Newcastle.

6.) 28 Jun 2022 17:07:29
Clu analysis also even on Leeds and Milan dental schools! ?

. no stone ever left unturned in your in depth analysis

The good news is that
I have had a wotd with your Uncle Victor that he definitely needs your thoroughness and indepth research on his recruiting team Clu . pronto.



27 Jun 2022 09:46:54
I mentioned this the other day and it's looking more likely, with arsenal pulling out of the race and nobody prepared to meet the asking fee I think Raphinia will down tools and either stay and be a waste of space or force a cut price move to Barcelona . We aren't getting 65 for him it just isn't happening.


1.) 27 Jun 2022 10:11:12
What's the story with Gooners pulling out Mights?

Haven't seen or heard that anywheres yet!

2.) 27 Jun 2022 10:38:25
I doubt he would down tools his ego and love of playing would surpass not playing/ downing tools.

It depends on the fee offer but if its ridiculously low. losers to accept it . Levy wouldn't accept less than £80,million . it will set a dangerous precedent for Leeds Radz Orta being very soft touches to all clubs.

3.) 27 Jun 2022 11:04:43
Has Raphinha put in a transfer request?, We know he is looking to leave with Barcelona as his preferred choice. Not sure he would down tools if his move doesn't come off, but he can be a bit of a sulker at times. His agent Deco appears to be the driving force for the Barcelona move, but maybe they have other players they prefer. Personally I would prefer to see him move abroad and except £40+ million than see him playing for another English premiership club and holding out for another 5 or so million more, I don't believe we will get £65million for him from any of the British teams.

4.) 27 Jun 2022 11:40:55
If Raph stays don’t worry about his attitude or his performance. With a World Cup on the way he will be busting his balls to get in the Brazilian team. So expect plenty of goals n assists next season!

5.) 27 Jun 2022 11:46:36
Mighty - the story of Arsenal pulling out of the race originated once AGAIN from a ‘report’ Barcelona fanzine SPORT. A work of fiction AGAIN.

6.) 27 Jun 2022 11:49:38
With Barcelona being strapped for cash, they need to add value to their offer through the addition of players. We need to be looking closely at who they have who would be solutions to the gaps in our first team, and pressing hard to get them included. We are still in the driving seat here, not Raph, not Dickhedo, and certainly not Barca.

7.) 27 Jun 2022 13:09:54
Brighty, the problem is the players of decent quality in positions we need to fill would seem to be either older than we’d be wanting to buy and/ or on too high a wage. There’s some good B team midfielders (Jandro Orellana, Alvaro Sanz and Nico Gonzalez) on the cusp of breaking into the first team, but we would really need more experienced players, to both constitute adequate value make-weights in the deal and help us kick on next season. The same would apply to promising forward Angel Alarcon, plus he’s still coming back from an injury which prevented his possible first team breakthrough last season. Had he not just gone to Club Brugge, striker Ferran Jutkla might have been worth some consideration.

8.) 27 Jun 2022 13:29:23
It’s all clickbait and paper talk. Believe whatever happens as and when it’s happened.

9.) 27 Jun 2022 13:44:12
Agreed Clu. At a push you could get me to take Dest for his versatility, but would rather take the money and but someone we actually want and not offered.

10.) 27 Jun 2022 16:28:45
Cluey Barcelona paper ?️ fake news.

11.) 27 Jun 2022 17:45:03
At the end of the day, the bottom line will be that if they can’t bring a deal to the table, in whatever form it comes, they will be told to eff off. Orta doesn’t easily tolerate bull****. (Competition on number of clichés per post. ???) .

12.) 27 Jun 2022 19:08:33
The good news is that it looks evident that Radz and Orta are digging their heels in on Ralph’s price.
I have a feeling that this transfer is only now starting to ramp up and there could be some interest coming in from the elite clubs, when I mean elite I don’t mean Arsenal!

13.) 27 Jun 2022 22:22:08
I know George, tell me something I don’t know - see my first reply on this post - and several in same vein over the last two weeks.

14.) 28 Jun 2022 04:10:26
OK Cluey. Chillax bro. I was merely providing an apt label.

15.) 28 Jun 2022 08:52:56
No probs George - talking of chillax, what’s with the night-shift (4.10?)

16.) 28 Jun 2022 09:04:27
Newcastle now enquiring. ffs.



26 Jun 2022 08:54:12
Unless we get a massive improvement in goals from Rodrigo, Dan James and Harrison next season and a return to fitness for Bamford then I can't see where the goals will come from .


1.) 26 Jun 2022 09:51:34
Mighty - You don’t see it ‘cos they’ve not yet been signed - another striker and replacement for Raphinha (if he goes as expected) will be incoming. What’s with all the doom predictions when the transfer window’s only been open a couple of weeks and doesn’t close until 1 September.

2.) 26 Jun 2022 10:11:16
As you say where are the chances coming form and then who can convert them into goals One out and three in so far. Don't see enough improvement in the squad as yet. With Raph going as well think we will another 5 or 6 players in to have properly strengthened the squad this window.

3.) 26 Jun 2022 10:28:55
Harrison's goals kept Leeds up ( just ) but yes you are right.

Unless we sign 3 or 4 playrrs who are going to contribute significant goals then Leeds will really struggle.

4.) 26 Jun 2022 10:43:55
Agree baz for once.
Harrison is number one keep.

5.) 26 Jun 2022 11:12:12
I kind of agree with the above post and what Baz says, but it’s still early days in the window lads. Have a little patience I am actually confident that we will get in reinforcements, not too sure they will be of the calibre of CDK or otavio as I think they will want Champions league.
I still think we need to sign 5 plus’s use the loans.

I wouldn’t be opposed to raph going to Chelsea for say £40m + Gallagher.

Sign Charlie T for £3-5m

CDK/ Otavio/ Gakpo 1 or maybe 2 of this lot

Camara £25m

Gabigoal. Loan with option to buy

Castellanos £10-12m

Foster free

I recon we had a kitty of around £100m + funds from the 2 big sales.

The next 2 weeks I feel are key to our window.

Try off load
Roberts, Rodrigo, Klich, and the other fringe players.

Loan out
Jimmy, joffy, Greenwood
For experience and game time.

6.) 26 Jun 2022 11:18:43
Aaronson and Roca both have goals in the locker too.
(Bring on the google stattos. ???)

7.) 26 Jun 2022 11:58:28
Sweaty depends who we sign but regardless would not be loaning out Gelhardt. the squad isn't good enough to do so in goals created/ scored

I understand that Orta is trying to get Summerville to sign a new contract. he only has one year left. but have a feeling Summerville will sadly resist and be leaving after being woefully underused previously in first team.

8.) 26 Jun 2022 11:59:21
Some good points Sweaty, but I would keep Joffy as I would like to see him alongside a fully fit Bamford.

9.) 26 Jun 2022 12:04:40
The new winger and striker.

10.) 26 Jun 2022 12:49:29
Agree with Clu, early days still
Question, have Soton, Brentford, Fulham, Bournemouth, strengthen as much as us yet. These teams are relegation fodder.
Next tier Wolves, Palace, Brighton, Everton, no standout signings.

11.) 26 Jun 2022 15:47:49
Mighty Feet ? and heads ?️. ??.



25 Jun 2022 12:46:47
I hope we don't get railroaded in to selling Raph at a cut price deal because he wants to join Barcelona and he ends up forcing a move for a lot less than what we could get.


1.) 25 Jun 2022 14:47:02
The Leeds, (underRadz, Orta) model sell cheap ; buy/ pay too much.

It certainly isn't the Leicester or Brighton model.

Radz and co must get top dollar for Raph to reinvest in squad for Raph or otherwise keep him

Leeds are 4th favourites at 13/ 5 with the bookies to be R .

. a bottom 6 R battle looks more than likely UNLESS there are some major quality goalscoring players recruitment this window

. sorry Woody pal.

2.) 25 Jun 2022 15:26:15
I don’t often agree baz but right now our transfers in of

Aaronson, is he going to be better in the premiership over foreshaw or klich

Rasmus, is he going to be better than ayling

Roca is he going to be better than Phillips

So possibly right now on paper is it possible we are weaker than we was than last season

Any new players like any new players for everyone is going to be a gamble

Manager said he’s playing his way this season and not the way he played to keep us up. So basically new manager and new ideas, another gamble

Are we gambling on the 3 teams coming up on being worse than us or that other teams in the league are going to get weaker?

A lot of ifs and butts however until the season kicks off we don’t really have no idea ?‍♂️.

3.) 25 Jun 2022 15:33:04
Spot on LAD
. and if/ when we lose Raph
. well.

4.) 25 Jun 2022 17:01:50
Baz my mate, don’t you ever apologise for your posts. I know by now that you say it as it is and we all have our own opinions, I’m always the optimist but that doesn’t mean I’m right! I’m of the opinion that why would Radz say the right things about not going through the relegation mire again and set us up to fail? I think there are some more good quality signings to come through yet so fingers crossed and maybe we will achieve beyond all expectations eh! Stranger things have happened ??✊??.

5.) 25 Jun 2022 17:42:46
Don't agree Baz.

It must take a massive conscious effort to be in your state of perpetual negativity, mate. Doesn't help anyone and I just don't get it.
What does it achieve you bemoaning everything the club does on a daily basis?

Personally, I'm feeling optimistic about this upcoming season tbh and I think we have a right to be.

6.) 25 Jun 2022 17:46:56
Cheers Woody.

7.) 25 Jun 2022 18:03:16
Baz Since when is £42M plus add ons less than zero which is what we acquired KP for?

8.) 25 Jun 2022 18:07:56
LAD Rasmus will probably prove to be around Ayling quality. Aaronson will be an upgrade on Klich, no doubt. Roca is not a replacement for Kal. Hopefully, Mo or Sander is. Prefer the former.

9.) 25 Jun 2022 18:14:13
Baz Why not just wait to see what Victor serves up? Why panic and lament when window ? is only just underway? Seems we're shopping ?️ in much superior department store ?. We're not done yet. George thinks 5 more signings should follow.

10.) 25 Jun 2022 18:27:11
What Dilli said.

11.) 25 Jun 2022 18:45:33
LAD2 - Aaronson will probably be better than Klich and is a very different player to Forshaw so can’t compare. The more accurate comparison for Forshaw is with Roca, who will probably be better than Adam. The replacement for KP is being worked on now - so pointless to compare Roca with him. Finally, Kristensen will almost certainly be better than Ayling. So in terms of actual like for comparisons for a probable starting line-up, our new additions put us ahead of last season - and, very importantly, our bench is stronger too. But, hey, if finding yourself agreeing with some of the more negative folk on here and joining in for a good moan makes anyone feel better, don’t let logical reasoning get in the way.

12.) 25 Jun 2022 19:15:21
Optimistic with you on that Clue think all 3 are a grade better than the ones mentioned.

13.) 25 Jun 2022 19:18:36
Dillinger, Clu and George good that you are feeling optimistic, and George is correct of course that there is a long way to go in window

Bookies are very rarely wrong though and without seriously impressive recruitment from here in in Inwould be amazed aif Leeds. wete to finish above 16th at best this season; we were pants last season and creating and scoring goals will be the main issue again this season especially without Raph. addedn to a serious Achilles heel LB issue.

14.) 25 Jun 2022 19:36:28
As with all signings they are a gamble and I was pointing out until they kick a ball in the premiership it’s difficult to gauge whether they are better than there designated replacements.

I’m not disagreeing clu that roca is a replacement for Phillips however his position is a defensive midfielder and correct me if I am wrong but Jesse said he had a different role for Phillips as he didn’t want him playing the way he did for bielsa, so in theory until an actual replacement comes in then who’s to say we are replacing him? And roca isn’t the replacement albeit slightly less deep.

Rasmus may be an upgrade on ayling and I’d probably agree with you but a few season in an Austrian league will not convince me that he is better on paper than ayling until I see him as I’d of been convinced firpo was going to be a great signing until I watched him.

Same rules apply for Aaroson so I’m not sure how you’ve confused my negativity with logic.

Foreshaw and klich usually played one or the other when bielsa played the 3 man midfield one deep, one box to box and the other more attacking. Usually Koch/ Phillips, foreshaw / klich, Rodrigo/ roberts so I believe that forshaw and klich were similar players.

15.) 25 Jun 2022 19:46:50
And to re iterate the my above comment

A lot of ifs and butts however until the season kicks off we don’t really have no idea ?‍♂️.

16.) 25 Jun 2022 20:01:02
LAD - there is a absolutely no way that the Club will not recruit another DM to replace KP. When Marsch talked about a different DM role, he was referring to his preference for a double pivot in front of the defense rather than just the Bielsa’s preference for just 1 DM in there - which KP’s attributes were particularly well suited to. So we are fully expected to bring in a quality experienced ball-winning DM to complement Roca’s deep-lying playmaker attributes.

17.) 25 Jun 2022 21:19:22
Baz, last season was last season, why dwell on it. We had a load of injuries which decimated our first team squad. We're recruiting smartly atm and I'm very happy with who we've signed so far.

For me, Aaronsen, Kristensen and Roca are better players than what we have currently in their respective positions. Obviously we need a striker, and interest in Charles de Ketelaere is extremely promising. Cody Gakpo, Arnaud Kalimuendo. These names we're being linked with are exactly the type of players we need to help improve our squad, not only in the first team but also depth, which we sorely missed last season.

Fair enough, you can start being negative if we play poorly and don't pick up points, but until then you're just being negative for the sake of it. How about getting some enjoyment out of supporting Leeds and be positive for once. Negativity is just a terrible default mindset to have.

Let's see how we get on first before the constant moaning starts. Or is it just that you feel fulfilled moaning about Leeds daily? I just don't get the need to feed constant negatives onto this forum all the time. I don't get it at all.

18.) 25 Jun 2022 22:15:59
Dillinger. feel free to label tbe slant of the majority of my posts as you like

For me it is the REALITY of Leeds United current position.

See a great example of this above in OPs post to which I completely concur as I have made these same points in past few days on this forum.

Do I trust our board.?
. well no . after last three windows. but I hope to be pleasantly surprised

Lets see how things go . cheers.

19.) 25 Jun 2022 22:40:51
LAD - Sure, Kristensen’s performances in the Austrian Bundesliga are little indication as to how he’ll get on in the Prem. However, his performances in European competitions and for Denmark are a decent marker, and were presumably what made Dortmund keen to sign him.

Baz - bookies often are wrong, but more importantly, their current odds will be based on last year’s form - as there’s little else for them to go on. They will take very little if any account of activity to date in the summer transfer market and can clearly not take account of what else will happen before the window ‘slams shut’. In other words bookies current odds have little relevance to anything.

20.) 25 Jun 2022 23:38:21
but it will not surprise me at all that at the end of the window those bookie odds and positions of all 20 teams have not changed much at all, probably very similar indeed such is the predictability of the EPL.

21.) 26 Jun 2022 09:26:30
Baz, I will label negative posts as negative, as that's what they are. Pretty obvious they are and are intended to be as such.

Your perpetual negative thoughts are not reality.

We've recruited well thus far and for good fees. KP has gone for a fair price, all things considered. JM has a fresh slate to implement his favoured playing style. We're not going to be completely decimated by injuries like last season. We currently have a stronger first team than last season. We also have better depth and we're still bringing in more players to compliment our first team squad.

That's the reality. The moaning really is getting boring now. You don't even enjoy being a Leeds fan by the sounds of your posts. I'd honestly hate to be like that. Takes far too much energy to constantly find negatives in everything than it does to actually just sit back and enjoy what's unfolding with an optimistic mind. Should give it a go, mate.

New season, new Baz ?.

22.) 26 Jun 2022 10:48:09
Dill last season at the end of tne transfer window my predictions that Leeds would be in a relegation battle was indeed proved correct and reality.

There was very little that most same Leeds fans could have ' enjoyed ' in an absolutely horrible dreadful ' boring ' season . one of the very worst in results goals conceded of my 55 years . of supporting LUFC

Yes through thick and a lot of thin I will. always nsupprt . but get a trip pal if that season floated your boat

We shall see re this season.

23.) 26 Jun 2022 12:54:21
Baz - who will be within the top 8 or 9 is perhaps fairly predictable (though not necessarily in what order) . All three promoted clubs can possibly be predicted to be in the relegation scrap, depending on their summer business. But who else is likely to be drawn into that battle and who will be comfortably in mid table is not so clear cut, particularly when there’s so long to go in the summer window.

24.) 26 Jun 2022 12:59:47
As mentioned above, last season was last season. No need to dwell on it when things have and are still clearly changing for the better. I mentioned a number of positive things in my previous post, all of which seem to have been ignored just so you can harp on last season ?‍♂️.

25.) 26 Jun 2022 14:10:41
As I said we shall see about this season Dill . KP has gone, Raph is going, and signed players. so far . so. so.

I wouldn’t say there is an urge to replace him but he hasn’t signed a new contract and has been linked with a move away . So it’s only natural we would be looking for a replacement at this stage .

Yeah we do need another CB but you know Bielsa will likely play Ayling Strujk or Phillips at CB if needed . He has before . However in this league we can afford to put square pegs in round holes so a another CB is a must in my eyes .

Transfer value for defensive mids who don’t score goals isn’t that high . If you look at transfers for his position I think it’s about market value to be honest .




Click To View This Thread

25 Jun 2022 08:07:47
I was thinking that also but how many defensive mids with no goal scoring capabilities sell for more? If you score Or create goals or you sell for more
If your a centre back or keeper who stop goals you sell for more, I think for the position he plays it’s market value.
