Olly Casey . real option for central defense as season goes on. looks very assured and confident.


1.) 08 Dec 2019 10:08:08
That’s what Bielsa thinks too 😉.

2.) 08 Dec 2019 11:39:58
And what about Pascal?

3.) 08 Dec 2019 13:17:01
Not getting a look in for some reason.

4.) 08 Dec 2019 19:06:20
Rate Casey but did not expect him in the first team so soon, just moved up to U23s, Bubs must have seen something. Cresswell one for the future as well. Pascal a bit like Coops in that he can really impress one minute then next game make silly mistakes. Consistency not there yet.

5.) 08 Dec 2019 20:04:14
All this from 5 mins of 1st team football? Wonder what will happen when he makes his first mistake.

6.) 09 Dec 2019 09:33:40
To be fair🤔, with extra time it was closer to 10 minutes 😀😉.

7.) 09 Dec 2019 11:02:24
It was a confidence boost for the lad. Doubt if he will be a first team regular any time soon. Bubs must rate him and put him in to motivate him. He has done it with Gotts and Leif in previous games. Good management for me its how young ones should progress. Bubs has overlooked the youth and played it safe most of the time so i am happy he is introducing more of them to the matchday atmosphere and pressure. Folks been saying we need CB cover so why not him if he is good enough. Personally thought he would need more time but will trust Bubs judgement.

8.) 10 Dec 2019 22:53:05
And Pascal got his stripes tonight for a few mins. Right way to do it IMO.

9.) 13 Dec 2019 14:04:35
Good to see the young ones getting a taste. Casey is a tasty looking prospect and a proper unit as well which we have been missing of late. let's hope he continues to flourish.

10.) 14 Dec 2019 10:06:08
We really are seeing the fruits of investing in the academy now, and there is a glut of top talent coming through. The only slight concern I have, and it sounds daft, is that we will have too much, and see a raft of youngsters, who will make it, allowed to leave at the end of the season, like last year!?
On a separate note, anyone know how Jay Roy Grot is doing? Still think he might have a future.

11.) 14 Dec 2019 23:27:13
Dropped to the bench bright.



06 Jul 2019 13:57:11
So Jannson off for a paltry 4 million . Bielsa proving he can be very stubborn. cooper Beradi . White, Struik. will not get Leeds up.


1.) 06 Jul 2019 14:06:47
Where did you read that?

2.) 06 Jul 2019 14:15:48
Phil Hay tweet.

3.) 06 Jul 2019 14:24:45
Phil Hay saying on twitter Pontus fallen out with the club and some guy on Waccoe saying fee will be £4m . A while back I would have been up in arms about this, but if MB really thinks Pontus is a bad apple he must go . However, surely he’s worth £10 m plus in this market . Furthermore, if MB really plans to go with Cooper and White and thinks they are a first choice CB pairing in a promotion team, then he’s in for a rude awakening . I’m worried he was happy with his number of CB’s last year and he may see White as a replacement for Pontus . If so just watch the avalanche of set piece goals we will concede! We need a top quality replacement!

4.) 06 Jul 2019 14:25:34
He's signing for premiership bound Barnsley.

5.) 06 Jul 2019 15:05:10
Rumour is £5.5m, according to Phil Hay. Definitely would need replacing with a quality experienced CB, as what we will have without him does not look good enough. I hope they have got a replacement lined up.

6.) 06 Jul 2019 17:38:18
Micheal hector anyone.

7.) 06 Jul 2019 19:11:16
If we are selling Pontus for such a small amount of money, it's official we have a chairman who either don't give a rubbish about the club or is clueless, Pontus is worth way more then the £5 or 6 mill that we seemingly are giving him away for.



20 Jan 2019 16:02:34
The link with Daniel James from Swansea is growing . hope he's a step up from other signings from Swansea. Alan Curtis Andy Robinson Matt Grimes and Fredrico Bassone are a few that come to mind.


1.) 21 Jan 2019 12:21:59
Still prefer O'Dowda.

2.) 22 Jan 2019 16:59:17
Fee agreed for James today, by all accounts.

3.) 22 Jan 2019 18:08:19
Tell me more brightwhite.



28 Jul 2018 23:21:08
No. 5 jersey still available so don't believe BuB is fully happy with central defence.


1.) 29 Jul 2018 09:17:13
Agree whitelight,



14 Jul 2018 21:13:13
Two Peterborough boys on the way in. Bartley not signed because package was deemed not value for a player of his age and of his injury problems.


1.) 14 Jul 2018 22:07:11
I heard maddison in but not Marriott

2.) 15 Jul 2018 00:07:19
Peterborough boys wouldn't be called championship players so maybe someone else, hopefully in addition to them.

3.) 15 Jul 2018 17:26:22
I don't know much about the Peterborough lads but they're highly thought of and the right age. Far prefer the idea of them to Mbakogu.

Missed a trick not getting Ryan Woods in on loan. ideal replacement for Foreshaw. linked with him when he joined Stoke for five million. now at Millwall.


1.) 12 Feb 2020 13:08:05
Unfortunately we weren't linked with Woods during Bieslas reign so I am not sure if he is the right kind of player for the system that is being employed. But I have always thought him to be a good midfielder. Norwood was another that always impressed me but alas he is not on the radar either.

2.) 12 Feb 2020 14:41:05
Welcome back Axe!

3.) 12 Feb 2020 14:46:28
If you want a replacement for Foreshaw I’m happy to sit in the medical room for £25k a week.

4.) 12 Feb 2020 16:23:52
Alf Are you unhappy with your hips?

5.) 12 Feb 2020 19:23:10
Alf, be careful. "Hips don't lie"



25 Jan 2020 19:55:55
QPR fans slating Clarke after his full debut last night . very poor and hooked after 65mins . good business 10milion from Spurs.


1.) 25 Jan 2020 20:07:48
Said it at the time and got slated for it, overated and lazy one season wonder, we’ll sorry got that wrong 6 game wonder. Thanks spurs we dodged one there.

2.) 25 Jan 2020 20:12:52
To be fair Martyn you did indeed and it's looking a correct call . The lad is regressing, very strange going ons.

3.) 25 Jan 2020 20:20:20
Great business! Even the club Twitter was slagging him off for being lazy!

4.) 25 Jan 2020 23:30:29
I just couldn’t see what others could in him Chris, he did his little step over one trick that people sussed in no time. Good bit of buissines.

5.) 26 Jan 2020 08:43:19
Bit harsh on the lad, he’s gone from u23s into a fairly potent QPR attack in a very hard league

He is still young and no telling yet what sort of player he will be yet

Still better as an impact sub at rhs minute

Don’t forget there are folk that said KP won’t play for England a few years ago ;-)

Young players need time

Now, mckinstry. he could be special and he also may not

You’ll know in a few years.

6.) 26 Jan 2020 10:24:23
Agree I’m being a bit harsh after just one came . Clarke was superb last year v Aston Villa and Forest both as a substitute. he really never recovered after the incident v Borough . hope he has a good career ahead . maybe even one day return to Leeds.



23 Jan 2020 19:33:09
18 games left to play . currently on 52 points so need another 38 to guarantee promotion. so really can only afford to drop another 16 points . five more defeats . really need to go on a winning run.


1.) 23 Jan 2020 21:19:05
easy. right?



19 Dec 2019 16:35:32
Those advocating spend spend policy to get promotion. look at situation at Stoke . loss of 34million. even with parachute payments. they're in the mire.


1.) 19 Dec 2019 16:54:53
Agreed Whitelight, but I don't think the club are of the spend spend spend mentality.

Everything they have done so far under Radz has been prudent and well costed.

2.) 20 Dec 2019 14:27:45
Yep and prudence is why we missed out on promotion last season . Villa showed us how promotion is achieved.

3.) 20 Dec 2019 20:20:06
We tried, in vain, to sign Dan James last January, and were stiffed by a Wock Comble. IMO, that signing would have seen us thro. And what has poor old Prudence got to do with this, the poor old gal!



02 Dec 2019 20:34:16
RHC. so negative, the performance on Saturday was top class. all positive.


1.) 02 Dec 2019 20:59:56
Have we really come that far, are we better then last season, we still can’t put games to bed, can’t seen to score many goals, yes we got 4 from a bottom team, when others are putting away 7, against team we find hard to beat, yes we are top but then so we’re we last season.

2.) 03 Dec 2019 11:31:42
Think we can say we are better than last season, performance and results point to that. Defensively better, still hold possession well, and now the midfield are scoring as well takes pressure of Bam who will score maybe not loads but works hard every where else. Yes would like a prolific goal scorer but think we miss a big CB as well. was not too bothered when Janson went and Ben arrived as i rated Ben from the start. However at set pieces, corners and free kicks we miss his height in there so a lot are wasted. So overall would say we are better and Bubs is managing better but always room for improvement.

Leeds should score a hatful against Luton defence . could be a 5-4 game.
