Pearce has signed for Wigan on a permanent.




08 Aug 2019 15:51:39
Ryan Nolan and Facundo Colidio deals arte also off. Radz decides that paying for players to actually join the club is too much of a risk and announces that his aim is to sell all of our players and contest with a team entirely made up of loans in future unless we can get youngsters for free and then sell 'em for a fat profit.


1.) 08 Aug 2019 18:31:10
Alf totally agree but Kinear recons Roofe and Pontus out and two replacements in White and Nketiah is like for like except we got approx 13m for our two leavers and we got 2 players on loan who if we actually get promotion (and of course I hope we do) these two players will cost us the earth if we decide to keep them.
Personally I would rather have the Nolan kid and spend an extra 5m to get him in.



06 Aug 2019 14:24:49
Sources reporting we have put in a £7m plus-add-ons offer for Kent.


1.) 06 Aug 2019 22:25:34
theres a lot to the Kent thing now alf alright, think it has a pair of legs now . Who is going to be the winger to get moved into a more central direct role do you reckon?

2.) 07 Aug 2019 06:27:51
Could be anyone of Harrison Costa Hernandez and hopefully Kent 1 all interchangeable with bogusz I think could play number 10 and Clark and shack as wingers. More options than a McDonald’s touchscreen.

3.) 07 Aug 2019 07:24:40
I think we need to get Pablo off the wing and into the no.10 role where he will be lethal and not have to do so much running.



06 Aug 2019 08:33:21
So Kent, Ryan Nolan (CB) , a GK and Facundo Colidio (ST) on the shopping list this week. Could we go from missing out on one last minute signing to missing out on 4?


1.) 06 Aug 2019 11:35:54
I suspect there’s a few irons in several fires and most won’t come off.



02 Aug 2019 09:22:49
So come the end of next week we will be without KP or Roofe. We will either not replace at all or replace with cheap rubbish. Unless the youth do amazingly well I think the season is over already lads and lasses.


1.) 02 Aug 2019 09:50:16
Radz will bank the money.

2.) 02 Aug 2019 10:01:33
Lol, time will tell.

Could always just wait and see I suppose.

3.) 02 Aug 2019 10:05:32
Too of the morning Alf! Cheery post!

There should at least be a plan as both departures would hardly be surprising and I would hope at this stage both deals would only be concluded with transfers in at the same time.

Roofe is a shame as I thought he looked good in Australia and liked him in the new position. Let’s see if they both happen.

4.) 02 Aug 2019 10:54:08

5.) 02 Aug 2019 11:24:35
Roofe will go, in his last year and Anderlecht being champions league then why wouldn’t he go!
Philips I think will go also, again it’s a premier league move for him all be it villa.

Just need to get them done ASAP so we can replaced and yes the club will replace as they will have to.

6.) 02 Aug 2019 13:26:48
Replace? That’s a laugh. We will replace with a bunch of kids or rubbish players and Radz and Orta will pocket the cash. Unless we do buy quality players To replace Radz is proving to be as much of a leach as Bates was. Radz out.

7.) 02 Aug 2019 15:24:07
seemingly kemar is Brussels bound for a medical, 1+1 =2, so i expect an incoming pretty soon, its all about the balance of those books you see .

8.) 02 Aug 2019 16:20:33
Clarke: 9.9m
Roofe: 7m
Jansson: 5.54m
Saiz: 2.25m
Ekuban: 900k
Sacko, Dalby, Halme, Denton: let's say another 1m

= 26.5m outgoings

loans in: £5m
Debt: 5m

That leaves 16.5m profit in my book. No FFP to worry about due to clearing our debts. I really want to see the whole £16.5m invested or I will want to know why not.

9.) 02 Aug 2019 16:23:05
Forgot to add 3.5m for BPF

so 20m to reinvest.

10.) 02 Aug 2019 17:30:07
To clear 1 point up FD1 Anderlecht are in neither the Champions League or the Europa League, they finished 6th in the Belgian league, let that sink in 6th in Belgium and failed to qualify for Europe. Its Kompany that has scouted Roofe and that's the bottom line. Roofe is going for the money and the prospect of working in Europe no more than that, and i can't fault him, its a short career.
As for the outgoings and the "supposed" profit don't forget we can only lose £ 39 million in any 3 year period, no one outside the club knows the state of play for the last season re the accounts, we lost money over the lat 2 years so there is no guarantee we didn't again and given some of the wages we will have paid it could be significant, yes it hurts to see the "family jewels" being sold off (and some of the other detritus too) but let's not knock the club for running the business within the rules god knows the EFL would love us to break FFP i dread to think what our punishment would be compared to others. We may be surprised with a couple yet to come in though I doubt it until January anyway, and i still think there is mileage in the QSI link it isn't going away especially in the Arabic and French press.

11.) 02 Aug 2019 23:11:03
The accounts are available for anyone that looks for them. We do know what they are or at least those that can be bothered to look do.

12.) 03 Aug 2019 17:59:03
Roofe is going cos radz won't pay him what he's worth.

13.) 03 Aug 2019 20:49:03
You are spot on Alf there is money that can be spent but doubt if it will be. Accounts are online and i even posted them on here and to be honest that FFP excuse is just an excuse. Money probably going to pay off initial investment ready for a sale next year.

14.) 04 Aug 2019 20:11:43
I think radz gambled on promotion to give Pontius Roofe and Jack Clarke big wage rises problem we failed to go up.

‘Take Us Home’ the Amazon LeedsUtd documentary is scheduled to start this Friday (16th) .

Super excited.


1.) 14 Aug 2019 14:42:41
Spoiler alert Alf! You may want to skip the final episode.

2.) 14 Aug 2019 16:28:29
Do we get promoted in the TV show, class? 🤔🤔🤔.

3.) 14 Aug 2019 19:26:22
they asked me to re-write the ending so we beat villa in the play offs due to a kp hat trick.

4.) 14 Aug 2019 23:00:04
Don’t wanna spoil it Bright but if you need to wash your hair or wash ya smalls do it on the last episode 😂.

5.) 15 Aug 2019 14:41:02
I’m a shaved head fella, and certainly most of my match day small, at least, go straight in the bin! 😳🤪😢.



13 Aug 2019 13:08:36
Bielsa has said Eddie will get his debut tonight but not sure for how many minutes. i really hope we play a load of younger players plus a full game for Costa. i really don't care if we win or lose but I would like to see game time for playrs that haven't featured yet. New keeps, Clarke, Eddie, Edmundson, Babyshacks. c'mon Bielsa you know you want to!


1.) 13 Aug 2019 14:28:05
Don’t forget Pascal!

2.) 13 Aug 2019 14:51:09
He did this when we played QPR last year so I imagine he will, especially with the quality of our back up this year.



12 Aug 2019 17:50:39
here's a glass half full for you then:

we did really well in the first game and 78% of the game looked great. With last season's team apart from White.

We played well against Notts Forest and were unlucky, also with last season's team plus White. Plus Harrison had to go off injured and he was a miss.

When we start to be able to play Costa and Eddie a bit we should create more and score more. So if we are doing ok now and can get better we should be alright. Right?


1.) 12 Aug 2019 18:14:40

2.) 12 Aug 2019 18:44:18
Are you sure it wasn't 78.5% Alf.

3.) 12 Aug 2019 18:46:28

4.) 12 Aug 2019 19:39:06
Right from Me but Berm may say get rid of Phillips lol.

5.) 12 Aug 2019 19:46:19
Double right!

6.) 12 Aug 2019 20:14:44
Absolutely right.

7.) 12 Aug 2019 20:30:24
what you mean doug that is slanderous I love Phillips nearly as much as i love my wife (cant stand her either)

8.) 12 Aug 2019 21:12:01
Me too old chum they only missed when you need them lol.

9.) 13 Aug 2019 09:16:33



09 Aug 2019 13:21:55
Eddie cost us £4million including £2mill loan fee plus 100% of his wages.


1.) 09 Aug 2019 13:53:02
Thus Radz and Orta have splashed the cash? I think currently loan deals cost about 25%+ of the value of the player. Therefore, whilst it is a cheap opt-in in the short term, it us also shrewd / prudent. Also, if you have say £8m from selling, say Roof, you can buy one £8m player or loan four £8m players, thus strengthening the squad and allowing a year to decide which of the £8m players are worth buying and who needs binning. The wages of the four £8m players will be more than the wage of the one £8m player that you sold, so loaning a player is NOT the club scrimping. It's management using their judgement the game at they can.

2.) 09 Aug 2019 16:16:02
Good deal. 2 million loan fee is good value these days. Hopefully he can live up to expectations.

Leeds Away kit for the season has been released and it is grey with pink trim, name, number and sponsor.

I quite like it tbh.


1.) 31 Jul 2019 18:28:49
i really like the shirt but dislike the fact it has nothing to do with leeds and is not very traditional for our 100 year season. but i'm definatly buying it for the kids.

2.) 31 Jul 2019 18:55:32
I don’t mind it, it really doesn’t matter, just hope they bloody play well in.

3.) 31 Jul 2019 21:00:22
For the kids Bermo? I thought they were Milwall supporters!

4.) 31 Jul 2019 22:04:11
Alf I like it too and must also agree with Berm. Colours little to do with Leeds but who cares because it's a one-off.

5.) 31 Jul 2019 22:50:29
yeah they are proper wall but i make them wear leeds kits as it builds character and toughens them up to getting bullied plus it teaches them a lesson for not being boys and making me have to raise daughters

I will get one as well as the blue of the wall kit brings out the veins in my legs.

6.) 31 Jul 2019 23:36:01
Berm I bet Swiss Army Knife could also bring out those veins if you ask him nicely and especially if you wear Millwall paraphernalia.

7.) 01 Aug 2019 01:23:00
Hilarious bermo 🤣🤣🤣.

Cant see Wolves paying £30m for Philips. Shall I get some petrol in the car just in case?

You can't have it both ways - either he does well and we will benefit as a team and attracts attention or he plays badly and the team suffer and he goes unnoticed. In this league anyone that does well is likely to be targeted.

If he signs a new contract it is less likely but if he doesn't then we will need to cash in come January or lose money which I cannot see Radz doing.

Great signing provided he finds his feet quickly. A real talent who knows where the onion bag is.

What’s the point of loaning a young keeper when we already have around 4 in the youth ranks? Is he really that good and will he even get any game time?

No. Kent was keen but then Radz realized it would cost actual money and got cold feet.

I dunno it’s hard to break teams down sometimes when they shut up shop particularly with 10 men. I’m happy enough with that result especially after what happened last season.

If you don’t know what tattoo you want I would probably suggest not getting one. Find out what you want, try to make it a unique piece of art and then get it when you are sure you want it on your body for the next 50 years.

Tory he looks ill even when not playing. Needs to fatten up a bit.
