If it is true that when Roofe leaves we are going for Kent my opinion is that is an excellent upgrade. Much as i liked Roofe Kent has a lot more potential and is a class act waiting to happen. Lot of competition for those wing berths unless Bubs has got other ideas for him.


1.) 05 Aug 2019 20:17:58
Doesn’t make sense. Loads of wingers with 1 striker in the squad.

2.) 05 Aug 2019 20:48:55
Kent can play central.

3.) 05 Aug 2019 21:31:26
So can Costa and Harrison.


4.) 05 Aug 2019 21:37:11
Think MB has ideas about a few playing up front, including Roberts, Harrison and costa. The ability to switch players from the wing to the striker role during a match can cause chaos for opposition defences, and is something I think we will see during the course of this season. Add Kent to the equation, and we can really mix it up, and in attack, we have real strength!

5.) 05 Aug 2019 21:45:20
He's no way a striker.

6.) 06 Aug 2019 06:18:33
We’ve all? ( me included) forgotten we’ve got a fella called Tyler. Hope the lad has an injury free run.

7.) 06 Aug 2019 06:53:55
While Kent is a winger, we all remember what Wenger did with that winger Henry?

8.) 06 Aug 2019 12:20:49
Yes, I do. Since when did an octopus eat a crocodile l?



03 Aug 2019 21:20:16
Rumoured we are after Colidio and Nolan from Inter. Def need some more in, not sure how long it would take to get them Bielsa fit.


1.) 03 Aug 2019 22:03:10
I read that to, don't know much about either of them so hope there upto it. I would of preferred experienced guys.



09 Jul 2019 20:03:08
Read Danny Mills reason for Pontus leaving. Its what club told him. Pontus wanted more time off for holiday Bielsa said no. If the boss says i want you back at work you go back to work. Not sure what position is with Unions and players holidays but we know Bub has a strict code he adheres to and so did Pontus. All a bit childish in my eyes but in any job there is a pecking order.


1.) 09 Jul 2019 21:40:12
It's all been badly handled in George opinion. If he wanted more time off, why was he training at all with Malmo? Why not fine the player for employee breach? Was it lucky timing then that the 🐝 came in with an offer? This has been a dispute brewing for some time.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 23:13:43
Agree George think this just helped him on his way. Could have been settled with a fine. Down to Bub this one i think.



06 Jul 2019 23:05:34
Lot of posters turning against Pontus who was a god two weeks ago. Sad to lose him but if he is out of favour and happy to go so be it. What does make me mad is we are selling him to one of our rivals for peanuts. Captained his country and one of the best CBs in the championship and he is only worth 5mill, total joke. Who are we going to replace him with. White may have been able to play alongside Pontus but not with Coops would stand no chance against crosses. Sorry but if we do not get a quality CB in this is a really bad bit of business.

Agree also Wilks going cheap if 1mill is the price. Young talented and if Lowe is worth 2-3 mill he is worth nearer 2mill whatever problems he has in his personal life, they can be sorted, i suppose no one on here got in with the wrong crowd when you were young. Said on an earlier post i was expecting one of Roofe, Pontus or KP to be sold so not too surprised but was expecting Halme to be with us if only for his height
Thing is if we had put a proper valuation on Pontus of at least 10mill it would have made sense but looks like he has gone cheap to get him out of the door.


1.) 07 Jul 2019 02:52:29
Another good post. I believe Pontus was critical of management from the January transfer window and it eventually showed in his attitude. Big boots to fill. Believe we are considering Bielik from the Gooners.

2.) 07 Jul 2019 04:48:41
I agree the price seems cheap (although that will be a profit for us) but it there is bad blood best to get rid rather than upset the depressing room. Rubbish but that’s the modern game. Mate bumped into Orta yesterday and he says we are looking at maybe bringing in 1 more. Didn’t say what position but I can believe a CB.

3.) 07 Jul 2019 04:57:32
Does the magic hat go with the sale? If so that alone has to be worth another 3 mil?

4.) 07 Jul 2019 09:17:36
I actually feel sorry for Pontus and feel some of the criticism on here and elsewhere is undue. The guy obviously got Leeds and fully bought into the fervour of the fans. He obviously also drank in the love for him from the fans and gained energy from this - presumably partly because he had been such a peripheral figure in the latter part of his last season at his beloved Malmo and during his one and a half seasons at Torino.

Whether his exclusion from the team in the playoff semi-final games was down to his reaction to the Villa goal or not who knows, but he was clearly wounded by this, particularly for the game at Elland Road, and especially following what transpired. He had probably dreamed (literally) of scoring the winning goal against Villa in the final - and why not, 'cos he almost always scored against Villa. He would probably have sweated blood in that game to have endured we got to Wembley. But yet he didn't even get on the pitch, and had to watch on with the fans as most of those picked fell apart and surrendered meekly to the loathed Fat Frank and his (former) team - including that wan**er Keogh who played a key role - being allowed to dominate in both boxes.

It's fairly easy to imagine how upset Pontus felt at all this - not just for himself, but for the fans - without seeing the pictures of him slumped alone at the side of the pitch. People criticise him for not being with the rest of the squad to console them etc. But having seen his and our dreams lost in such pathetic fashion, particularly with such mistakes made by the player specifically picked ahead of him, I can understand why he felt the need to be alone with his thoughts.

I can also imagine that there may be concerns over whether with such hurt and disappoinment he can fully reconcile himself with the management and some of his teammates at Leeds, and that is felt best for there to be a parting of the ways.

I don't for one moment think he actually wants to go to a Brentford, but that may currently be his only choice. As for the magic hat - of course it shouldn't be included in the sale, but rather be an exhibit in the Leeds United Museum. Thanks for the memories Pontus.

5.) 07 Jul 2019 10:33:05
The question is has he asked to leave is MB had enough, don't know what's gone on behind closed doors, sorry but 5.5 mill won't get us a dive 1 defender good enough, personally club should of tried to work it out, think he is no more than a lower level premier player at best, but will be a big loss if not replaced,

6.) 07 Jul 2019 11:56:03
IF the situation has broken down irretrevably the so be it. My one thought on this is that the bosses word is final however if you cannot harvest such passion (which often comes with a hot head and a fiery tongue) you are in danger in fielding a team with no passion. A team with no (controlled) aggression and ultimately a team with no stand up and be counted leaders. A team of yes men. Quite rightly if he is a cancer in the dressing room then he should be removed however a, good, manager should not let it get to that. If the situation had been simmering for some while then it beggars belief why we let Halme go? Surely his height would have been invaluable in times of need if we were to go 5 across the back. Still there is time, out there somewhere must be a Pontus clone to instill grit in the back line.

7.) 07 Jul 2019 13:28:03
Tellingly after the direby he said he’d only leave if Leeds sold him

So I suspect things were brewing

Our new style left him exposed at time but he’s better than the current level we play at

In that mad 20 mins vs the sheep we needed a leader or two. I don’t think it’s in his character to be that

Nor do we seem able to sign one

Good technical players only get to play if someone is getting their nose dirty

Which leads me on to Vinne. So sorry for his loss.

8.) 07 Jul 2019 17:32:52
He’s a character, not a leader. Love him, but you can’t have a disruptive influence in the squad.



01 Jul 2019 11:12:01
Papers still talking about QSI investment in Leeds. They want minor investment with option to buy for 75mill. Would be profit for Radz but think he may want more if we get in PL. One that will drag on.


1.) 01 Jul 2019 12:27:24
Interesting that that report mentioned that they thought that Leeds are a well run club on and off the pitch!

2.) 01 Jul 2019 13:00:18
Well we all know it it is financially sound and interacts well with the community. Getting there with playing staff and coaches top class. Think that part of it is evident for all to see.

U18s 3-1 Hull in Youth Cup
Belter from Shergill and two for Cresswell.
Creswell MOM, captains performance. Haugland not far behind. Good performance all round from Kumwenda up front, Gibbon, Burlace. Fully deserved. Couple dropped back to their age group for this one from U23s. MKinstry being one who put in a great shift. Into the fourth round let's see who we get.




04 Dec 2019 10:54:58
Leeds United U16s 13- Mansfield U17s 0. What a result for the lads. Now let's see the first team emulate that scoreline. Lot of young talent coming through lads. that's after beating Burnley 6-2.


1.) 04 Dec 2019 13:06:07
Great scoreline.



01 Dec 2019 14:58:19
Five out of five, knew we could do it. Now that is a statement of intent and to round it off with a good old thrashing what more do we need. Nice to finally bang some goals in but would be happy winning every game 1-0. Happy for Bam and Costa and good to have Klich back among the goals. KP misses a game but not the end of the world. onwards and upwards.


1.) 01 Dec 2019 15:33:17
Will be interesting to see who drops into the Kal role. Lots of different options, just depends on who is most up to speed with Bielsa’s game style. Think he will opt for Berra in as CB alongside cooper, with White moving slightly forward. Honestly believe that BW can excel in that DM role!

2.) 01 Dec 2019 17:23:03
Yes reckon White will play in KP role and Berardi CB. Saying that Leif has been on the bench a bit and can do cb.

3.) 01 Dec 2019 17:37:11
Not sure Bermondsey is up to the challenge Brighty.

4.) 01 Dec 2019 19:15:32
Maybe he is up to it George, if he has a blinder then KP may get a tattoo of Bermo on his backside.

5.) 01 Dec 2019 20:19:17
So what your saying is replace KP with BW or GB or maybe JS or Af and maybe MK or LD or RG or even PS might get a start on yea and not forgetting MB although he would be better in the AM role.

6.) 01 Dec 2019 22:27:50
george ill have you know on wednesday such was my performance in goal that we went 12 goals up and i had to play on pitch, we ended up winning by 15 as it turns out KP may be the yorkshire pirlo but I am the cockney beckenbauer.

7.) 01 Dec 2019 23:42:39
So you're a cheat are you Berm?
I can't stand him after that final. Whatever he said or offered to the ref. Aaagh, now I'm grumpy haha.



23 Nov 2019 22:30:21
3 down 2 to go. Knew November would be a good month. Other results went our way as well so bonus. Glad Bam got one hope he keeps it up. Onwards and upwards.




10 Nov 2019 18:34:28
Interesting that we would not give permission for Nessy to play in FA Cup. Maybe keeping an eye on our CB shortage, could he be back in Jan?


1.) 10 Nov 2019 20:03:14
It just makes sense if there’s an injury crisis I’d say.

2.) 10 Nov 2019 22:03:00
Daniel Ayala could be joining us.

3.) 11 Nov 2019 10:28:32
Probably true will need him to replace White, if we can not keep him when he is sold. Think Nessy probably on his way back as cover as well.

4.) 11 Nov 2019 12:02:14
We need to move heaven and earth to retain Ben White at least until May but preferably sign him permanently on an initial 8 year deal. Wondering if QSI could help? This is such a good club ripe for aggressive expansion. Eventually I want to see our stadium capacity increased.

5.) 11 Nov 2019 22:53:00
Would love to keep White, he has made a massive difference for us. Agree about stadium as well think Radz has plans approved to make it into a 50,000+ but i think you probably need more than that for the top of the PL.

Vydra goes where he can get a payday Cork. Has no loyalty to any club he plays for, guess that's why they are happy to get rid of him.

I rate Vydra but he turned us down so no time for him now. Seems to be a bit of a mercenary with no loyalties except to money. there's a young lad called Edmonson who is as good as him and a lot younger.

Agree i usually look forward to the Jan speculation but dreading the chance we may lose White and Eddie as think we will find White hard to replace. Wish we could take the chance and buy him in Jan, pay later lol.

Will give you that one George you did put a january deadline on it but you are not right yet. You also told us Kent was joining us but that did not happen either.

Think Radz has a dilema on his hands gere. As i said when this rumour surfaced the Qataris will not invest without a clause to buy majority shares. So its not about the 11% he is willing to sell now but about the clubs future value. If we miss out on promotion again i think some major investment will be needed to get a couple more quality players in. Radz and Aser will not want to do that. Would Bubs sign another contract extension without it, not so sure. We would lose players as well who would have to be replaced. However if we do go up it would add 30mill to asking price so is it a gamble worth taking for Radz knowing that he does not have the funds to compete at the top of the PL. I think a deal will be done and Qataris will be major shareholders next summer depending on how many shares Radz wants to hold onto as i can not see him selling all if there is a chance we will be in PL.

That was a scorcher from Shergill don't you think. Thought Haugland shwed a lot of class and strong on ball as well. They were lucky to finish the game with a full team.

Its Fulham we need to drop points. Brom did not deserve the pen but that's how it goes, poor ref as did not even book goalie. Will the dive be looked at, doubt it.

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.

My opinion Chris. There are obviously players who will need replacing when we go up so why buy another. He may get a couple of goals but doubt he will get in team straight away with his lack of action. Would rather be buying some one who ia actively contributing to their present clubs. Not saying Vydra is no good silly boy just saying is it the right time to buy him. Would be an ideal buy if we stay in the championship if that's your expectations.
