What happened to Emmanuel Dennis interest.


1.) 02 Aug 2023 12:08:08
Probably never even existed?

2.) 02 Aug 2023 14:21:49
What Brighty said.

It used to be paper talk but now anybody can spout their rubbish. Leeds Live for one seem to make up more stories than Emmerdale.



25 Jul 2023 17:13:48
Lot of talk about Kamara decent signing, along with Hamer.


1.) 26 Jul 2023 14:14:04
Talk talk talk zzzzzz.

2.) 26 Jul 2023 15:26:27
I agree seems to be a lot of verbal and no actual outcome hey ho.

3.) 26 Jul 2023 19:34:40

Pre season a lot on here was writing Rutter off, bad season overrated etc and when JP was signed it all oh great we have a proven goalscorer at this level blah blah blah. Now the same people are saying GR is a god and JP isn't doing it. Swap them around for goodness sake, JP has scored goals and he's out of position, GR has the better ability as a cam at this level so it makes sense to me. Oh and look how many are praising DJ now, I on the other hand am still not convinced.


1.) 26 Nov 2023 16:51:08
Piroe 1 of zee top scores last 2 seasons as a 9, never got i to idea of changing him

The road runner, no no from me always.

2.) 26 Nov 2023 18:19:03
Hmmm would that be 4 goals 6 assists ( 2 for Wales) Dan James?

Players that score and assist yet bizarrely aren't rated/ valued by some Leeds supporters ?. Jack Harrison, Rodrigo etc, even Pablo bizarrely underrated by some.

3.) 26 Nov 2023 19:02:18
When Daniel Farke initially took the helm he was asked about Rutter's poor form etc
Correct me if i missed undstood his reply, but I'm sure he stated that he felt Rutter should be playing on the wing and allowed to cut inside
Well stick him out there, play Summerville or Gnonto inside, push Piroe upfront and see how that goes.

4.) 26 Nov 2023 22:26:46
Indeed he did Leeroy.

5.) 26 Nov 2023 23:38:23
Agree leeroy.

6.) 27 Nov 2023 08:27:12
GR finishing is a huge weakness in his armoury. Until that gets addressed certainly not God status for me.



24 Oct 2023 11:47:15
Read a report about piroe not having enough pace to play as a striker according to DF not that I believe everything that is wrote however with his proven goalscoring record at this level why is he playing cam. Just wondered why, I know we are very good in the attacking area but would we be even better, just one more thing what's the problem with gruev is he unfit or is it a case of he just doesn't fit in.


1.) 24 Oct 2023 12:29:22
You really do sleep a lot eh old.
It’s ok to play him in mid mate. Well sort of.
Seee. If he dosent score you can bring on prolific bam bam.
Sorted. Right lads?

2.) 24 Oct 2023 17:30:14
Piroe can't do much about his pace or the lack of

But he definitely needs to work on his first touch and finishing . considerable room for improvement on the former.

3.) 24 Oct 2023 17:41:07
Yep Baz. His first touch was dire at the weekend.



13 Sep 2023 09:14:45
So apparently Paul Robinson thinks Angus has run out club perfectly, is it just me seeing things differently to PR hey ho what the hell.


1.) 13 Sep 2023 10:05:26
Paul Robinson is renowned for talking ????.

2.) 13 Sep 2023 11:22:44
Paul Robinson is actually quite thick. You can easily recognise thick people, it’s in the eyes! ?.

3.) 13 Sep 2023 13:41:57
U actually can dannum.

4.) 13 Sep 2023 15:46:59
He’s thick as mince. He just chats ? for an income.

5.) 13 Sep 2023 15:47:24
No surprise, Robinson is always making controversial comments about LUFC.



06 Sep 2023 17:14:31
So we virtually all agree firpo has been shall I say less than productive, but is it worth seeing if he can cut it in the EFL, he cost a lot of dosh and continues to do so as it is unlikely we will be offloading him, so do we give him the benefit of the doubt and see if he can regain some of the hype he brought with him. Just a query wondered what everyone thinks.


1.) 06 Sep 2023 17:52:42
Hi oldbri. Firpo In my opinion was a wrong buy. He is good player but not suited for English football and he did not fit the style of play. I don't know if anything will change when he gets back. Needs to be a wingback with someone covering his defensive position.

2.) 06 Sep 2023 18:32:12
Junior Firpo can't defend . so. even at Championship level and even at wing back I would be very reticent to pick him

Suggestions 4th choice LW or better still a Jan window move to Sevilla ??.

3.) 06 Sep 2023 19:03:18
Baz. I would be surprised if anyone would be interested in taking him. Just for the injuries alone.
Cancel contract by mutual consent.

4.) 06 Sep 2023 19:07:22
We bought a defender from Barcelona.
Let's be honest how much defensive practice did he get - next to none.
Then he comes to a Leeds team that played every game like it was a school playground, next goal wins!
He actually didn't seem bad in the attacking third but isn't a very good defender. Could actually do OK for us in EFL.

5.) 06 Sep 2023 19:34:37
Junior Firpo was originally a striker, then dropped back into wing/ wing back position
Yes, he isn't a great defender but maybe Daniel Farke will push him further forward
Don't forget, Bielsa signed him and therefore he saw something in him that we haven't just yet
So for me, I'd give him a chance to see how he fairsat Championship level.

6.) 06 Sep 2023 20:08:05
Ben ; just a tad curious but how on earthis Firpo a ' good player' in your opinion? ?
Feel free to list and analyse in detail his attributes and also his deficiencies to get your favoured thesis style pros and cons debate. ?.

7.) 06 Sep 2023 20:19:42
Canada I thought you had higher standards you almost convinced yourself you ( somehow) half rate Firpo

But when it came to a League winning Leeds United legend in Rod Wallace you inexplicably don't rate him ?. the same Rod Wallace who won goal of season in 94 beating 7 Spurs players from his own hallf

The same Rod Wallace who scored 14 crucial goals in our league Champions win campaign season ; great goals with both feet and his head

( my gawd he is even better at tackling than Firpo too! )

8.) 06 Sep 2023 22:01:22
Baz ???. Perhaps more pertinent question for B-W would've been is it Junior OP or Senior OP?

9.) 06 Sep 2023 22:21:10
Baz. I know firpo is decent player because he was playing with Barcelona and has played for a Spanish youth team. So yes there is a good player in there. And I think if he was in a system that suited him and maybe in a slower league we would see that.
But injuries have stopped him having a run of games. Never had the chance to get match fit or to gel in the team. I'm not saying that he should have that run with us but let him go to play at his level.

10.) 07 Sep 2023 00:17:06
Everyone's a good player at their level.

11.) 07 Sep 2023 01:27:58
OK Ben thank you for your reply
I am hopeful Firpo get his move in Jan 2024.



31 Aug 2023 09:16:04
So does anyone think we will get a LB which is the one position we all said needed filling if so leaving it a bit late, then again we have firpo to rely on and must other injured players who all seem to be LB, s.

Even if I would take him it wouldn't be sorted out until 2025 at the rate we are going.

OP do you really think JP would say oh I believe I am being played out of position and I don't gel with GR come on he is talking the talk.

BV your comment about Joel not being the striker we all hoped for, I agree he is not scoring but I still feel he is being played in the wrong position, he is a striker and not a cam, this is DF fault, I still feel DF is the man for the job but he bought JP for his finishing and is not playing him in his natural position. Give him a few games up front let's see I may be proven wrong but let's see.
