Leeds are looking to sign Ryan Giles (23) from Luton this window.

The left back is out of favour at the Hatters.


1.) 18 Jan 2024 22:34:10
How do you know? Serving refreshments in boardroom again?

2.) 19 Jan 2024 03:22:51

5.) 19 Jan 2024 14:04:45
You sure that’s not Ryan Kent we are trying to sign Alf?

6.) 19 Jan 2024 15:13:11
Appears so, Cleggy.

7.) 19 Jan 2024 21:47:03
I was serving fish and chips to the 9ers Enterprise.

8.) 20 Jan 2024 00:11:24
Did you deploy mushy peas as a breakwater? I Farking love fish and chips.

9.) 19 Jan 2024 22:56:50
Can my profile name be changed to Alfcuppa Eds?

10.) 20 Jan 2024 19:05:19
Welcome newly named Alfcuppa ?.

13.) 21 Jan 2024 10:46:39

14.) 21 Jan 2024 10:54:55
Indeed definitely should be Alfcuppa

Pop the kettle on Alf .

One Yorkshire tea

15.) 21 Jan 2024 14:15:57
Thought porridge would be more up your street Baz? ;)

16.) 21 Jan 2024 18:17:22
Hmm porridge if ladened with golden honey, bananas and an assortment of ripe juicy berries then ok Alf

9am tomorrow good with you ?

17.) 21 Jan 2024 21:55:55
Yep - see you there.



17 Jan 2024 13:41:52
Leeds are looking at CB Japhet Tanganga from Tottenham as well. Japhet Tanganga can also play in either full-back position as well CB. Tottenham are set to recall Japhet Tanganga from his loan at Augsburg this week.


1.) 17 Jan 2024 16:47:53
I liked him at RB for Spurs the other season. Would be happy with him.

2.) 17 Jan 2024 21:56:11
Off to Milwall apparently.

3.) 18 Jan 2024 14:59:50
Aaaaand gone.



14 Jan 2024 07:35:16
Leeds have started negotiations over deal with West Ham over the transfer of Ben Johnson. West Ham would rather Ben Johnson leave on a permanent deal. If a permanent transfer can't be agreed, it will be a loan + add-ons.


1.) 14 Jan 2024 12:15:01
Could be a good ( ish) signing . young player of year at Wet Spam.
twice .

He has played LB but is he left footed or right footed?

I notice he has had 2 serious injuries though . Could be a possible issue. tough medical needed.

2.) 15 Jan 2024 16:03:31
He’s played nearly the same number of times at both left and right back, plus a couple at CB and once in midfield think he’s versatile and a good age.



10 Jan 2024 07:50:35
Rumours rife that Bill has left the club.


1.) 10 Jan 2024 08:48:37
Boro medical done and passed allegedly.

2.) 10 Jan 2024 12:00:26
Thanks for your service, Bill. But it has been expected. Possibly later than it should've been.

3.) 10 Jan 2024 13:34:31
A great servant, and Leader, through bad times, great times, and bad times again. A top bloke too.

4.) 10 Jan 2024 17:40:09
Official now. Always a sad day when such a player and character moves on. Deserved a proper farewell, and hope there is a way to do that. The time had come tho, and hopefully he can secure a longer deal after the loan period.



09 Jan 2024 22:46:34
PSG are in Advanced talks with Leeds United over the transfer of Diego Llorente. He could be recalled from his Loan at Roma later this week.


1.) 10 Jan 2024 05:38:39
That would be great. Another dud off the wage bill!

2.) 10 Jan 2024 13:33:33
Plus I read that they are willing to pay more than the price written into the contract with Roma! Bonus!

Great to see a 'my way or the highway' approach from Farke. Echoes of the Legend Bielsa.


1.) 05 Jan 2024 18:36:04
Results are bottom line Alf
'His way' lasted one year in previous job.

2.) 05 Jan 2024 19:34:14
But two promotions with a cash strapped Norwich.

3.) 05 Jan 2024 20:22:39
Old news OP
Different time different club different circumstances

It's what happening this season with LUFC that is pertinent

But if he can obtain clones of Pukki and Buendia .

4.) 05 Jan 2024 22:23:26
Up to the club to make the signings. Manager has to work with what he has got. Not sure why so much hate for Farke Baz? I think it has far more to it than football.

5.) 05 Jan 2024 22:36:15
That’s right Baz, it was just an illusion, never happened and totally not the reason he was employed to Leeds Utd.
Forget Puki and Buendia Is Rutter and Summerville not good enough for you or even your Champion Dan James?

6.) 05 Jan 2024 23:38:09
Farke is disappointing me Alf . I had higher expectations . maybe a tad unfair higher expectations

OP can't one desire a Pukki goalscoring number 9 and a genuine CAM like Pablo or Buendia also

6 away defeats strongly indicate we need more quality.

7.) 06 Jan 2024 01:06:43
Baz, if you had higher expectations, why did you predict 6th place? We’re currently 4th, which is exceeding your apparent expectations, so how can you be disappointed? Rhetorical question.

8.) 06 Jan 2024 01:26:26
Ani your ' (rhetorical) question ' has already been answered by me below and also previously in posts so why ask YET again??

1) . Farke is making a number of crucial mistakes as a coach which is losing Leeds needless points ; he should be doing better but he isnt.

2) 6th place prediction though is primarily based on an imbalanced squad missing key positions in squad

that relies on JUST FIVE PLAYERS who score goals ( a post to which you responded to Ani )

when Leicester, Saints, Ipswich and other teams have far more players who score goals than Leeds!

9.) 06 Jan 2024 07:35:33
Baz pal, forgive me, but I shall be re quoting your line to OP of “Old News…. ”, as vary similar variations have been used towards yerself and others on here, and received short shrift due to ongoing relevance ??!
DF’s track record at The Mustards in this league is still pertinent.

10.) 06 Jan 2024 08:01:52
Baz, I keep asking the question because your statements are totally illogical. We are doing better than most here predicted, better, certainly better than you predicted and yet despite that, you claim DF is underperforming?

It’s true, despite doing well (in my opinion) , he might not be doing as well as he could be, I think is your argument. That’s fair enough, but that doesn’t explain your league prediction. You say because of the unbalanced squad and missing key positions, well that hasn’t changed at all so far, so again, no grounds to say DF is underperforming, since he is still doing better with a squad, that has always been and still is, in the state than you predicted.

11.) 06 Jan 2024 08:05:39
I recognise disappointment, your vitriol seems more akin to pure hate to me Baz. For someone who seems to pride himself on remembering details about what people have posted and therefore exploits of memory, you seem to have forgotten what a tumultuous start we had to the season and what impact that had. We also had a far from ideal transfer window where Farke was unable to fill some key positions. Don't forget new managers rarely make an impact in season 1 - Farke himself needed 2 to win the Champ with Norwich first time so yes I would say your expectations are unrealistic, bordering on loony.

12.) 06 Jan 2024 10:46:21
Ani one question for you :is DF the coach to get Leeds United promoted? .

Tumultuous start Alf? Go easy on the hyperbole fella . players come and go for every club that is relegated. loan clauses were unexpected/ odd but players leaving anyway is entirely expected

Yet first game of season when Leeds could not beat tbe mighty Cardiff we had a front four of £ 25 million Sinisterra, £30 million rated Summerville and Gnonto and £35, million Rutter . all champo sides including Leicester would be delighted with that EPL standard front 4 . Ampadu, Gray in midfield, Rodon and Struick at centre back, Byram LB . ooh how did Farke cope ?

'Unrealistic expectations ' you say . what failing to score against woeful Wendies, failing to beat woeful Rotherham losing half of your away games , 3 in last 4 . team is regressing not improving 4 months after start .

New manager at Saints Scholes DF in our match and is doing better, new manager ar Leicester 17 points ahead of Leeds . tremendous Alf

And. don't mention ze war ??.

13.) 06 Jan 2024 11:08:36
* schooled.

14.) 06 Jan 2024 11:11:18
Ah, so it's an anti-German bias? Thought as much.

15.) 06 Jan 2024 11:43:05
Actually I love his cutesy German accent ?. no Alf you be wrong again.

16.) 06 Jan 2024 12:39:36
So Baz…yes I think DF is a manager that can get us promoted.

17.) 06 Jan 2024 13:42:30
I’ve been through this before with the illogical Baz, the 6th place and not 7th is that if we do end up in the play offs and get promotion, he can yet again change his tune to "I told you we would get promoted"
7th place means impossible to get promoted!
Am I right Baz or am I right?

18.) 06 Jan 2024 14:07:27
' a manager that can ' Ani.? . not will get Leeds promoted
You don't sound convinced.

19.) 06 Jan 2024 14:43:22
Right OP? You? Seriously? . ??

Leeds need top 2 to be promoted . zero chance these chokers win a playoff.

20.) 06 Jan 2024 15:35:43
Haha Baz…you of all people accusing me of not being committed. The master of ambiguity.

Yet more illogical ramblings from you. When answering me or OP, our team is imbalanced and weak. When answering others, Farke is wasting a team the envy of the league.

21.) 06 Jan 2024 15:58:12
yes unbalanced no LB, RB, CAM. no goal scoring midfielders

In answer to Alf, yes we have a forward line which is envy of most.



05 Jan 2024 17:06:23
Struijk out for another 7 weeks ?.


1.) 05 Jan 2024 18:32:02
No transfer to PSG then.

2.) 05 Jan 2024 18:33:12
Surely this means CC stays.

3.) 05 Jan 2024 18:36:57
Unleash the Cresswell.

4.) 05 Jan 2024 20:07:54
Carlow is seven weeks . hopefully not as long for the Pirate.

5.) 05 Jan 2024 20:41:30
I going nowhere Blanco pal ?.

6.) 05 Jan 2024 22:20:25
Love it Chris.



31 Dec 2023 23:12:32
Happy New Year posters, eds and lurkers. Its been an annus horribilis for Leeds but I believe brighter, whiter, times are around the corner. Be kind to each other and March on Together, forever. Love Alf xxx.


1.) 01 Jan 2024 02:39:29
That's a tad unfair Alf . I quite like Ani, a good guy.



30 Dec 2023 08:52:51
More often than not we have a terrible Xmas run. Why? I think this is showing even more clearly that our recruitment is far from done. Need a statement of intent in Jan.


1.) 30 Dec 2023 10:12:02
Definitely need a statement of intent Jan window
. Mr Marathe and Co will know for sure it needs one.

2.) 30 Dec 2023 10:14:55
This month has highlighted further our weaknesses but it's been evident way back in Sept and Oct when we never looked like scoring against bottom of the pile Wendies, Rotherham, Stoke.

3.) 30 Dec 2023 10:24:24
And that will not happen. To have the confidence in Bamford to play for over 30 min proves they are devoid of rathionale.



25 Dec 2023 11:31:03
Happy Christmas ? to all posters, lurkers and of course the Eds. We're not quite top of the tree but at least there has been a few lovely presents this season. Of course, the most important thing is that YOU are all healthy and happy and I wish that for one and all this Christmas. Your good health brethren and MOT forever. Xxx.
