Personally, if Kalvin goes, you'd be questioning all the bold signings we are completing as its a bit misleading. In my opinion though, I think radz would have a chance to redeem himself here if kalvin was to go. 15-20 million is an awful lot, and for 5-10 million you could probably buy back ronaldo vieira. Who'd complain at that knowing how capable marcelo is at developing players?

For the record I wouldn't lose sleep over janssons departure, much rather him than phillips. Jansson always seems to rock the boat, very verbal about leeds yet if he was such a fantastic player he'd be in the premier league by now one way or another, someone comes calling for around 10 million, take it. Marcelo doesn't seem to keen on him, but he would need replacing. Ryan bennet of wolves maybe, Juan foyth, someone with a lot of composure who could fight ben white for places.

Agree on all fronts Samo!



05 Jun 2019 14:23:19
Report on Talksport this afternoon from a french media journalist saying the deal is done, over in france they seem to think it'll be announced soon, leeds playing it down and denying it until the very last minute, in an attempt to try and prevent any collapse. Not sure what i think of it all.


1.) 05 Jun 2019 16:12:53
well at least one thing is sure, these people do have money and they are reported to want to enter the English market .
I know we are all Leeds fans but stand back and look, other clubs with a fan base like ours are already owned or backed by money.
Newcastle would be a great buy but would cost a lot more .

2.) 05 Jun 2019 16:16:44
Really depends on what “The deal” is doesn’t it. Investment or takeover. We will see in time.

3.) 05 Jun 2019 18:03:42
I hope to god this is true. Dare we dream? Again?

4.) 06 Jun 2019 09:52:22
Ultimately, money talks and if they offer him enough then he will sell.

5.) 06 Jun 2019 12:17:13
I think Radz will try for an investment to buy deal, the guy seems determined to get us up, no matter what you think of him.

6.) 07 Jun 2019 19:03:37
al he is not determined to get us up, otherwise he would of done things differently he is determined to make as much money as possible nothing else.



22 May 2019 09:52:35
Transfer IN's IMO:

Barbet, Lasogga, O'dowda, Bowen, Maupay, BIELSA.


Saiz, Berardi, Bamford, Coyle, De Bock, Roofe, Anita, Ekuban.

You've then got to work with:

BPF, Casilla, Ayling, Dallas, Jansson, Cooper, Davis, Douglas, Alioski, Barbet, Bowen, O'dowda, Hernandez, Klich, Phillips, Shackleton, Clarke, Ideguchi, Stevens, Bogusz, Gotts, Maupay, Lasogga, Grot, Struijk, Edmondson, Kun, Odour, Miazek.

29 players is enough IMO, and those players are good enough.


1.) 22 May 2019 14:05:47
Maupay would be a welcome signing. Is he for sale?

2.) 22 May 2019 15:11:49
Probably not, but to be fair, brentford have been a selling club in recent years, that Thomas Frank is a good manager though and will want to keep hold of his assets. Him, Barbet, Canos, Benrahma, Mokotjo, Odubajo, are all very good players that could play for a promotion pushing leeds side, I'd happily raid them.

3.) 22 May 2019 16:39:57
Bowen and Maupay both are well out of our reach financial
Shame as good players.

4.) 22 May 2019 16:40:59
Samo for ins either, O'Dowda or Jamal Lowe. For work with I would like to see McCalmont and Diaz also for the back line I would think about O'Connor, Shaugnessy and Pearce.

5.) 23 May 2019 16:07:24
Lasogga? I don't think he would last the first training session 😁😁.



13 Aug 2018 11:31:37
An appreciation post for the board, they don't always get it right but which board does these days, very few. Think radz has done exceptionally well, bielsa has been a real test of radz backbone and we've come out of the blocks flying, saying that didn't TC last year too. I see the next 3 weeks as the biggest of the season in all honesty, if we can keep up playing like that I think we might just break records this year, or we'll be brought back down to earth by the longevity of the championship. a great start though MOT.


1.) 13 Aug 2018 12:26:12
Great post Samo, and I think you're right about the next 3 weeks. The difference between Bielsa and TC is that MB is strong and experienced, and holds respect from the players, whilst not tolerating poor attitude. If we hold it together, based on those two performances, we could break records. That said, I do expect us to lose at least one game this year! 🤔😱🤐.

2.) 13 Aug 2018 12:28:13
Still early days, you are right better idea by the end of month after Swansea and Middlesbrough. Interesting to see how teams try and cope with us. Also hard to get a feel for how derby and stoke will really do this year. They might not do quite as well as people suggest.

3.) 13 Aug 2018 15:08:09
OMG I have just finished on a job and having a quick brew before heading off. and daydreaming

Beisla as manager. O'Leary's babes as his talent pool

Talented keeper. Robinson could play with the ball at his feet

3 centre backs who could all play a bit. Woodgate, Radebe, Ferdinand

2 wingbacks that can defend but definite help in attack. Kelly and Harte (even Mills could)

Defensive midfielder to allow the centre backs the opportunity to roam. Batty

Centre forward who can play others in. Viduka

Wide midfield who can link with the centre forward. Kewell and Smith

If only.

4.) 16 Aug 2018 12:52:29
Imagine how good that team would have been if we'd have had 11 players!



03 Jul 2018 11:14:31
My theory is that they're going about this transfer window in the wrong way. I think leeds have said we'll put 10 mil a side for a striker, 2 mil for a keeper, 4 mil for a cb, and the rest to spend on wages. When you look at that its 16million. I think instead of trying to budget what we've got, we spend what we've got, meet asking prices, and sign players, if we stick to budgets that we have made without enquiries someone else will come in and pip us to it. Vydra needs at least 11m spent on him, I think after that youll be fine up front. Roofe, Roberts, vydra, personally should all be good enough. Ekuban and grot and cibicki can go.

People saying we need 4/ 5 players, I really don't think we do. Bamford and roofe both good enough to lead the line on their day, both proved they can get a brace or a hattrick in the championship. Costa over the line is huge, missed that last year, injuries crucified us last season. Think central midfield is ok with pablo, kalv, klich, forshaw, shack, bogusz, roberts all able to do a job. Ben white could well do the holding role if kalvin gets injured becayse he isn't leaving. White also able to play CB his more natural position. You have 2 centre halves ready who know what it takes, and 1 in the pipeline, struijk and halme also both good options. If we get costa I really do see us ready, best bit about this year is that douglas will be fit again which frees alioski. Be iteresting to see who he plays on the wings bearing in mind he likes dallas, loves alioski, but signs harrison again and costa.


1.) 01 Jul 2019 14:05:35
I think Bielsa is working on a new tactical plan KP alone in defence with 3 banks of wing backs either side of him and attacking midfielders / forwards in front! Tally Ho!

Bogusz, still a lot to prove, Aappo appears to be heading out on loan. And if the talk is right, JC coming back as another option on the wing. Lots of competition hopefully will drive performance and mean we have more in the tank late season.

2.) 01 Jul 2019 14:08:38
Bamford is not on his day. Often.

3.) 01 Jul 2019 14:34:43
Did he have a day and I missed it wex?
Funny Spanish. I defender 8 wingers and a striker.
He is introducing new formation cause last years got found out too quick. This one will fool them.

4.) 01 Jul 2019 15:09:06
Aus, sometimes it felt like we were playing that formation last year!

5.) 01 Jul 2019 15:33:41
A larger more quality squad allows for a/ injuries and we had more than our fair share last season and b/ plan b which we didn't seem to do much last season. Onwards and upwards! MOT.



26 Jun 2019 11:46:01
To anyone saying the clarke deal is bad, 10 million up front funds this transfer window. Youll have costa and harrison both on 30k per week, for 52 weeks. Rougly 3 mil there, plus 1 mil loan fee for harrison. Ben white fee believed to be 2 million, plus 10k pw, that's another 2.5 million, gives us scope for one more loan.

On top of this, look at how often lewis cook played for us and everyone said he'd be a world beater, most people suggesting he'd be an england regular by now, he may well be still, but isn't yet, clarke may go down the same path for all we know, hope not as i like him and liked cook, but we've got a good deal for the potential.

lets suppose someone comes in for 30 million in the future, we get 6 million of that too. Great business imo and all the best to the lad. Radz has listened.


1.) 26 Jun 2019 12:20:29
I agree Samo! This lad has started 4 championship games in the past year. Sell on clause and first refusal on a loan sounds a fair package to me. There are so many unpredictables with the development of young players, look at Izzy Brown. I think he is in safe hands at Spurs. I’m sure it won’t please everyone but what is most important in the first instance is that the sale and what the money permits to happen please Bielsa! Hopefully now we can move forward.

2.) 26 Jun 2019 12:42:57
Don't agree with what is being said about Cook. When he was playing regular he was on the verge of the England squad but then suffered a bad injury that has set him back.



20 Jun 2019 09:49:27
14 points in august, all wins and draws at stoke and bristol.

Grand total 95 points, up as champions. Someone save this post please.


1.) 20 Jun 2019 12:01:25
Not losing until christmas?
Good luck with that.
Hope you’re right of course.

2.) 20 Jun 2019 13:25:38
Mate you should put a bet on. That would win you a fortune if it comes in! 😂😂.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 14:08:15
LMAO Samo great post I hope your right buddy😂.

4.) 20 Jun 2019 14:46:01
Love it Samo!

5.) 20 Jun 2019 15:30:27
That was the pessimistic side of me coming out aus! A few people have said it but look at the teams we're playing, the ones that have come down are championship level, really poor. And the ones in the league we can beat all of them except boro and brum it seems.

6.) 20 Jun 2019 17:08:59
Samo How you can make predos before transfer window has closed beyond me.

7.) 20 Jun 2019 17:22:55
Copy it and print it out. Put it up on your wall. Better still get the nurse to do it for you in case your not allowed sharp objects. This, of course, is one post where I want to be so wrong but I can't se anyone surging and staying there. It's going to be so, so hard.



17 Jun 2019 13:00:21
It's classic leeds. leeds fans: radz we need a winger and a box to box midfielder.

Orta the fans want a winger and a box to box midfielder.

Im on it boss.

I've looked at costa, kent, and wilson, but all I could find is a lad in league 2, and that daft lad jack harrison still waiting outside ER for 50k a week. In terms of a midfielder I found you someone from italy.

Ok whos the lad?

Folorunsho, he's not linked with anybody else, he's 21, and he's playing in the third league.

Perfect, ones for the future.


1.) 18 Jun 2019 14:07:19
Just about sums it up Samo. Lots of noise and speculation. Just so we can say we are chasing? But not much action. Yes I know we keep our cards close but the clock is ticking.

2.) 18 Jun 2019 21:33:50
The clock is ticking, Bielsa wanted players in for the beginning of pre season. Also we are off to Australia so who will be doing things then?

3.) 19 Jun 2019 09:52:02
Lufc I wonder what he will do if he doesn’t get them,



14 Jun 2019 13:29:04
Seeing that pearce wants to stay and play and fight for his place is good. Pearce, Douglas, alioski, and davis all for the LB spot. Anyone else thinking douglas could do a job as a left winger? Great delivery, fairly quick, good distribution and ball control, not the most clinical but 17 assists and 3 goals 2 years ago when wolves played him as a wing back is still very impressive. Thoughts or am I going mad?


1.) 14 Jun 2019 14:05:25
He needs to get fit first so we can even judge. His season was blighted by injury last year so difficult to tell really. I thought he did well at first before the injury and was a key part of the team but I wonder if Bielsa really fancies him in the team.

2.) 14 Jun 2019 14:33:48
Pearce really needs a strong preseason or hard to see him not going out on loan again. Another one who wasn’t really Bielsa fit for last season.

3.) 14 Jun 2019 14:39:39
No madder than the rest of us Samo.

4.) 14 Jun 2019 15:48:57
With Pearce, Douglas and Davis; Alioski should get nowhere near a start.

5.) 14 Jun 2019 17:32:56
Bielsabud one on would say what proof you got. Think this would of been a good investment, but thank for the information mate. Keep it coming.

6.) 14 Jun 2019 22:09:51
Alioski is the heart we’ve all wanted from Leeds players for years! He’s a young, more talented Michael Brown. 11 of him would get us promoted, simple.

7.) 15 Jun 2019 08:29:36
agree bright alioski can be bit frustrating and hit and miss but his energy, pace and effort counts for so much and on his day he is top class in this league

11 of him and we would be doing well, aling is the other one bit of a patchy season for form but effort makes him invalubable to the team.

8.) 15 Jun 2019 20:20:57
Totally Bermo. Maybe five and a half of each!?

It's a big one this, if he goes it hurts on a personal level, but as its been said 25 million is a lot. If iturraspe is a free then bring him in, and maybe 1 more of his calibur, with 25 million you could even tempt delph back. I think though marcelo will be the one who sets the price at 30 million and if kp goes i'd imagine marcelo goes, and that's the last thing AR will want, he will have to put his faith in bielsa.

Makes sense that they want them for the new kit, starting to get my excitement back, if white is a permanent that's an excellent signing, makes sense bearing in mind clarke going to brighton. o'dowda over lowe for me, don't rate kent personally. don't think we need a striker, keep roofe and bamford both fit and firing and you're ready for the season. hernandez must be playing as a 10 this year.

We signed him for 4.5m in 2018 January. Been a good squad player, but 5 million for a squad player bearing i mind john egan was 5 million last year, john mcginn 2 million, money could be better spent elewhere.

I've heard that its 8 rising to 13, I'd imagine leeds will want a sell on clause, though this lad could be the future of english football and with spurs on the rise he may not even go anywhere. Who knows but in my mind he's gone, just hope this spring boards us to a happy and busy summer, its needed.

George I'd seen this link too, don't know a great deal about him though. Also seen thiago mendes, a player bielsa developed massively into this same role at lille, valued at around 12 million though so very expensive.

Not going to lose sleep over kent, personally harrison needs his wage dropping to about 20k a week, there's a player there, its just getting it out. With davis, douglas, and pearce all as options at LB now, alioski and dallas are freed as wingers again, 2 wingers, mujica, and white, I'd say that's good business. as long as costa and harrison are the wingers.

27 Jun 2019 16:14:59
1970, I think your 3 behind the front man options would most likely be hernandez, roberts, bogusz. Roofe has played there, shacks could. In addition, I'd say on their day alioski and dallas are quality wingers, their versatility is useful. Two more forward thinking wingers, i.e costa and kent, would solve the issue imo. Harrison a good squad player like dallas, good for legs and energy. White i like the look of, hope that's a permanent move. I'd say struijk, bogusz, halme, wilks, stevens, odour, edmondson, and kun are all worth looking at and will probably all go on preseason.
