Great news on MB obviously. But " meeting his demands in the transfer market " seems to be being interpreted by those in the know as Prem loanees . If so I don't see this as a strategy loaded with great chances of success . Leaving aside our terrible track record in getting these right, they are very difficult to predict anyway, as it really depends on how much loanees are prepared to give to the cause and settle . For every Villa and Derby who get some success with it there are examples where things don't work . Ben Woodburn is highly rated at Pool but was an irrelevance at Blunts . Even if they do work you can find the rug pulled under you if the parent club recalls them, like Brom who lost their best player in Harvey Barnes at Xmas which arguably cost them promotion. It's also incredibly short sighted . Even if they work and we get promotion, there's even more team rebuilding necessary for the prem after they all return to parent clubs . Ideally you want guaranteed full season loans, no right for a call back, no guaranteed number of game clauses and an option to purchase . But that ain't going to happen! I'm all for one or two loanees of the type we could never afford but these should be mixed with the right purchases .

Agreed Red but then again every addition comes as a gamble. No matter what he was like at his previous club there is no guarantee that he will crack on with you. you're right that even in a succesfull loan its back to square one at the end of the season that's why I would condone a mix of U23s, young hungry purchases and max two loans of top, top quality.


2.) 29 May 2019 10:52:25
I’d rather have the gamble of loanees backed by what we have and the U23s than

Selling assets to fund new arrivals

We don’t have parachute payments

We do have Bielsa and the hurt from last season to spur us on.


3.) 29 May 2019 12:16:34
Harry Wilson would be my number one loan pick . 18 goals for Derby not even as striker . Just think what he could do for us next year! Great with free kicks too which we were rubbish at last year .


4.) 29 May 2019 14:55:24
Think Wilson is better playing in premiership next season.

If we need the funds for incomings, Forshaw to Fulham for a decent profit on the £4.5m we paid for him would suit me just fine . Don't rate him in either of the two midfield slots where KP is far superior at 4 and MK much better at 8 . We could cover his absence with a loanee and / or Shackleton and other under 23's . If we could get £6 or £7m off Fulham and their parachute payments it's a no brainer for me and should mean we keep our prized assets, with Saiz and some of the other fringe players also adding to the transfer pot .

RedhotCurrie

1.) 15 Jun 2019 21:49:45
A loanee like Baker 😜.


2.) 16 Jun 2019 08:29:06
Can’t see us getting 6 or 7 million for Forshaw! Be lucky to get our money back! Don’t think we have seen the best of him but not a favourite of mine!


3.) 16 Jun 2019 10:37:01
Think we have seen the best of him unfortunately!


4.) 16 Jun 2019 10:49:36
Have to agree, he isn't the player for us. I would be happy if we got our money back for him, as long as Radz reinvests it in the squad.


5.) 16 Jun 2019 12:16:36
Forshaw is technically one of the best players in the squad but unfortunately he appears to be made of glass and is neither a defensive midfielder or has to ability to score. Ideally he should be used in a 3 man midfield and he does keep the ball moving forward.


6.) 16 Jun 2019 19:46:54
If I remember correctly didn't Bielsa start with Forshaw as DM and Phillips only took over once Forshaw got injured?
If so who am I to argue with MB!


7.) 17 Jun 2019 08:40:00
Canada you don’t remember correctly . Forshaw was injured beginning of season and consistently messed up the defensive midfield role thinking he had the ability to play quarter back when he doesn’t!


8.) 17 Jun 2019 14:47:12
Canada - 'fraud your memory on this point is not correct. Phillips did start at DM, and Forshaw was injured during pre-season, which was what gave Klich the chance to start, in his place. Bielsa's mistake (which he eventually admitted) was in moving KP from DM to to CB (bringing in Forshaw at DM) in the New Year to cover injuries. Should have stuck with Halme at CB. It was that run of games, with loss of defensive solidity, that unfortunately undermined our whole season.


9.) 16 Jun 2019 20:02:41
Forshaw injured in pre-season.


10.) 16 Jun 2019 20:03:08
Bang on Notts. He’s a good player and handy because he can play a few roles in midfield but he can’t seem to stay healthy. Personally I’d sell due to his injury problems.


11.) 16 Jun 2019 20:03:19
Klich took over from Forshaw.

Ryan Kent ain't coming obviously . Guys I'm starting a crowd funding page to help raise funds for Rads to buy some trousers with actual pockets in them so he can bring his wallet to the next round of transfer negotiations . Anyone interested?! NomoreIOU's###! Spanish any Euros down the back of your sofa? All denominations welcome . Beggarscan'tbechoosers###!

Leeds' interest in CB Ben White at Brighton is notable for one reason . It's that MB has finally accepted he boobed big time not listening to us fans and indeed, the board who implored him to sign an extra CB last Summer . Not only did he refuse to, he failed to correct this error by neglecting to do so again in Jan . So better late than never, but I can't help wondering if had we done so we would now be planning for prem football, instead of the assault course of another promotion campaign. I know we failed to convert too many chances but had we kept it a little tighter at the back, that may not have mattered . It's good he's finally fessed up to this inexcusable error, but please fellow posters let's not see next season anymore moronic in " Bielsa I trust " hashtags or sarcastic criticisms of posters that have the temerity to question " God's " judgement, with comments like : " so you think you can do a better job than MB " . Please leave that to the fools on twitter and elsewhere . This site is too good for that! I love the guy, but he's human and makes mistakes like the rest of us which need to be highlighted and discussed .

1.) 10 Jun 2019 14:27:59
Well put for a bloke red hot, hindsight is wonderful. Too many fifa players on here think they know better than lord bielsa. All joking aside it was a great post and makes total sense.
ALAW.


2.) 10 Jun 2019 14:46:56
I think it's bold to use the word "Moronic" in the context of your fellow posters, your fellow Leeds fans. Some might take that as you calling your fellow Leeds fans Morons. Those people won't take kindly to it. But what would I know? I'm just a moron 😉.


3.) 10 Jun 2019 15:02:40
So you think you can do a better job than MB? I don't think we should be questioning god's judgement.

#inbielsawetrust.


4.) 10 Jun 2019 15:42:38
So we criticize him when he doesn’t change his mind and we criticize him when he does! What I think is funny is that after we appoint someone who is famed for being self confident, self opinionated or stubborn depending on your take, we seem surprised when he is all or one of those things! He is what he is and that is definitely very human, but I like him for all of that! Let’s just remember that all of us are human as well and we all make mistakes!

Let’s see how he responds to having a year in the championship!


5.) 10 Jun 2019 15:50:46
We've been called morons before Southern.


6.) 10 Jun 2019 16:03:50
Spanish may be re - read my post . No criticism of MB for changing his mind “ better late than never “, just criticism of the original error and delay in correcting it . As for the hashtag “ in Bielsa we trust “, I love it in its general sense of trusting the man to take us forward . But when it’s used as a stick to beat any fan who questions his decisions, then in that context, I have an issue . Southern all Leeds fans are my “ brothers “ . But I have been known to call out my own brothers for doing something “ moronic “ . Doesn’t mean I don’t love them .

{Ed001's Note - I think people need to understand the distinction between doing something moronic and being a moron. We all do stupid things, but it does not mean we are stupid.}


7.) 10 Jun 2019 17:45:21
RHC It's like looking into my own mind.

Not popular but if I was running the place I'd look to spread and distribute the strength evenly across the back 4 especially central defenders. I'd sell Pontus for £11m probably to Benfica and wish Bera bye then get Barbet and Elphick on frees. If I could I'd also try land Michael Hector on loan or permanent.
Coyle would back up Ayling at right back and Douglas would back up Alioski at left back with Davis. Cooper, Barbet, Elphick, Halme, Struick and Diaz sufficient strength in depth centrally and at that point we've not really spent too mucb having profited from the Swede. Simples.


8.) 10 Jun 2019 17:51:42
Alf! LOL! 👍🏻🍻.


9.) 10 Jun 2019 18:36:47
It's funny how God isn't able to address the problem of his teams fading in later stages of the season. Look a run of 6 or 7 losses and these worshipers will be the first to turn.


10.) 10 Jun 2019 18:56:08
The only words that grate George are " Alioski at left back"


11.) 10 Jun 2019 20:37:45
RHC you are making the assumption we are actually looking at White and it’s not just paper talk.

#inbielsawetrust.


12.) 10 Jun 2019 20:56:24
leodis, I have to agree 👏.


13.) 10 Jun 2019 21:37:05
Red hot, just lots of criticism for how long he took to change his mind when he should have changed it as soon as you decided! The first three sentences are all critical, “ finally accepted” “boobed” “ he refused to” “ he failed to correct this error” “ neglected to correct the error” “ better late than never”! People always want to appoint a manager and tell him how to manage, of course he makes mistakes like all of us but he took the team to 3rd in the table and yet we all on here could have done better with the same resources! If it was that easy and Radz was that tight don’t you think he’d pay you 250 k a year to manage the team and save 2.25 million.


14.) 10 Jun 2019 23:13:53
So Spanish you are basically saying football fans shouldn’t question or criticise a manager’s decisions because we could not do the job ourselves . Isn’t that a bit like saying we can’t criticise a prime minister or a Doctor who makes an error because we could not do their jobs?


15.) 10 Jun 2019 23:42:46
This is assuming that we keep Jansson or replace him if he is sold.


16.) 10 Jun 2019 23:44:53
Elphick and Coyle not good enough George. Sell Jansson and replace him with an inferior player not a good idea.


17.) 10 Jun 2019 23:45:24
Bloody hell Wex you used to be a positive geezer!
For a man that used to and I believe still does laud Cellino you do have me scratching my head. I’m an optimist fair enough but I amazed you are so negative towards our chairman and now manager it seems. Just enjoy imo all the good stuff happening at ER! MOT.


18.) 10 Jun 2019 23:46:01
Couldn’t have put it better myself Spaniard!


19.) 10 Jun 2019 23:47:31
Just like to add a point. What centre back should we have signed. Any ideas? Because January is a tough time to bring players in.


20.) 11 Jun 2019 00:01:49
Wex and I come back to the same point, do we really understand what happened in the run in and for me particularly Wigan and Derby. I’m really interested to see how Bielsa 2 develops, don’t think he’s God, the Messiah or a naughty boy, but I love the way he plays and the passion he brings to the job. First challenge for me is to get us to the New year in contention again and playing good football. Why I thought he might go, is I thought he might not think he was able to do it again and I feared a bad start and people calling for change and him walking. The fact he has stayed is a think there is a feeling it can be done, let’s see!


21.) 11 Jun 2019 01:21:58
Love you all, always as my LUFC brothers n sisters, but a bit shocked and disheartened at some of the anti Radz and Bielsa crap I have read on here tonight. Rhey have done cracking job. Credit where credit is due guys. Slating them whilst slating anyone who slates you for slating them? Perplexed. Utterly butterly perplexed. Haven't been in such a good spot for years, but let's wimper n wimper about how bad it all is and point fingers. Nah, I will back em. MOT.


22.) 11 Jun 2019 09:37:04
Red Hot, I was answering your statement that you weren’t being critical of Bielsa for changing his mind, I think you were, look at the words you used. Everyone has the right to be critical of everything, it’s massively important to have critical people around. Some errors are factual others are much more about subjective opinion, whether Harrison is good enough, whether you should pick Beradi etc. If you paid an architect a fortune, I guess you’d really hope you could trust his ideas rather than switching to what a financial advisor suggested on the back of a fag packet! Criticise away but then always be prepared to be criticised for your criticism!


23.) 11 Jun 2019 09:38:52
Great post Toryscum. Club going massively in the right direction, Radz, Orta, Bielsa and Carlos have to have played a big part in it!


24.) 11 Jun 2019 10:49:29
Good morning fellow posters

Wow, loving this particular thread.

And do you know what I can see all sides
RHC. I can understand your frustrations. We were so very very close and yes, a few tweeks during the latter end of the season may well have got us over the line and to the Promised Land (P. L. Premier League) . I know whenever I make a mistake I try to make sure I do it better next time. I think we all hope Biesla is similar. He will reflect on the past season and be more capable for the next one.

George. I think your being totally rational in speculating that Jansson may be sold. He is a bl00dy good player and deserves to be playing at the highest standard he can, and be rewarded properly. He is no spring chicken. And Barbet and Elphick are good shouts. Both have experience in thus division and possibly Elphick is a good leader too


Spanish, Alf, Brighty. as always love the positivity, and don't worry I don't think Radz or Biesla make decisions based on reading "leedsrumours. co. ". This is just us fans discussing all things Leeds

So, anybody want a cocktail and 10 minutes in the "hot tub of hope" now Mr Biesla has vacated?


25.) 11 Jun 2019 11:01:43
Here what your saying Spanish . But on the whole think you and others of your persuasion visa vis the club have been drinking just a little too much Kool Aid for my taste . Corkwhite re CB’s in Jan and their unavailability, a certain Mr Tyrone Mings happened to be pretty instrumental in Villa’s promotion.


26.) 11 Jun 2019 12:00:30
RHC, good call regarding Mings, but I believe that Villa disregarded the FFP in their quest to reach the Promised Land and possibly the signing of Mings was amongst that carefree attitude

It looks like LUFC are taking the said FFP a lot more seriously and so our budget is not going to be as high as those around. Its unfortunate, but I can live with a more prudent stance given the plummeting we did after Risdale.


 

 

06 Jun 2019 09:45:11
If Brandon Barker is the answer then the question must be : How can Leeds Utd continue to sign rubbish loan signings that will not help the cause season after bloody season!?

RedhotCurrie

1.) 06 Jun 2019 12:27:49
Barker was distinctively average at Preston last season.


2.) 06 Jun 2019 14:25:01
Wasn’t that guy who scored loads of goals for Norwich distinctly average and rubbish for a number of years? What about James, off just about everyone’s radar before Christmas, except us! Don’t forget we have the Kipling of football, “ he makes exceedingly good footballers out of flour, water, eggs and sugar!


3.) 06 Jun 2019 15:14:41
What like he did with Baker, Brown and Harrison .


4.) 06 Jun 2019 16:38:46
A fair point red hot although I wonder if he chose them! Harrison he wants back so he obviously thinks he will benefit from more time in the oven! Brown was probably just a half baked idea and you obviously can’t show a baker how to bake!


5.) 06 Jun 2019 19:01:27
I remember Issy Brown playing for Huddersfield against us a couple of years back

In that game I thought he was playing better than Phillips and Cooper
By general consensus, Biesla has improved those two. If Brown recovers, isn't it just possible he can do something with Brown?


6.) 06 Jun 2019 20:25:44
Totally Axe. The lad just didn’t recover sufficiently from a nasty injury to integrate to Bielsaball. I hope we bring him back, as after a full pre season, he could be excellent.


7.) 06 Jun 2019 20:05:06
Maybe he will improve under Bielsa however I have only stated that he was average last season and only achieved 12 appearances for a struggling team. 5 senior goals, in 65 appearances might suggest that we could do better elsewhere, particularly when Man City reserves are on high wages (which I suspect we are not fully paying)


8.) 06 Jun 2019 20:43:10
Would need him to agree to come back on loan first.


9.) 07 Jun 2019 14:32:43
We won't get Brown back with Bielsa in charge. The lad is an immense talent but does not work hard enough for Bielsa's liking. MB is a stickler for hard running and Izzy floats about too much in games not doing a great deal. For Bielsaball to work all 11 have to be pulling in the same direction we can't have a passenger in the hope he will pop up and do something special. Its not about fitness IB would have to fundamentally change the way he plays and I'm not sure that will ever happen.

RedhotCurrie

1.) 29 May 2019 12:23:29
RHC, point being we don’t have the funds needed to buy in players, so we have very little to play with, unless Radz goes and that not going to happen, so come what may we will have to deal with it.


2.) 29 May 2019 13:15:46
Good posts by RHC and Whitey. Loans better than nothing RHC. Plus, regarding loanees coming from the PL, where else are they meant to come from? Derby are hardly going to loan us Marriott and if we're interested in lower league players we'd just buy them as the cost small and there's nothing in it for a lower league parent club other than to cash in.


3.) 29 May 2019 13:16:35
I trust and back the judgement of our management team. Done good so far.


4.) 29 May 2019 14:35:14
Would love Harry Wilson .


5.) 29 May 2019 15:58:27
Liverpool selling him for £25m.
Not be coming too us. ⚽️⚽️.


6.) 29 May 2019 21:33:56
Nice one George. You’re clearly buying into a long term business strategy that works. FFP is going to straight bat some clubs this year, but not us, as we luckily have some one shrewd and not a Ridsdale clone. Centenary year champions! It fits!

If KP goes it’s just another nail in Rads coffin as far as I’m concerned as well as many others . That goes for Clarke too, who has every chance of being a £50 m to £ 100 m player one day .

Are you guys serious?! Do you want promotion next year or not?! KP is essential for a promotion campaign! Doesn’t matter if we even get £20 m as it won’t all be invested back in the team anyway . Spanish, Forshaw is not fit to lace KP’s boots in that defensive shield position . Have you forgotten about the careless play from him that led to a number of goals last season already?!

They think it’s all over, get real! And while your at it take your head out of Rads’ backside . He either hasn’t got a pot or isn’t prepared to invest in the first team and tried to buy DJ on the never never, hence it fell through and as a result probably cost us promotion .
