Happy with the two Inter names bandied about. Both come highly recommended but both are young enough to not demand a starting berth every week. If we are to start playing three at the back then Struijk and Nolan should complement White and Cooper perfectly. If Nolan has the same ice cool attributes as White he will be a capture indeed.


1.) 04 Aug 2019 22:44:15
Yep, totally agree Leodis. White looks so confident with the ball at his feet, reminded me of Norman Hunter! Too soon tho, but just my first impression.

2.) 05 Aug 2019 16:20:06
More like a little Paul Madeley Bright.

3.) 05 Aug 2019 21:41:25
That’s the highest accolade there is Bige!



01 Aug 2019 18:31:29
Please, please, please, let this Nolan* rumour be true.
*PS or pretty much any other decent CB.




23 Jul 2019 22:13:53
We, supposedly, are interested in Striker Caicedo in Italy. 15goals in 2 seasons kind off says it all. What we have is way better than that. End of.


1.) 23 Jul 2019 23:11:23
Leo This is why it's not easy to improve on what you have unless you spend big which we simply can't do. It's always about value, at least at this level. I believe Edmondson will contribute this season but the spine of the defence is a concern.

2.) 24 Jul 2019 00:33:50
Not many decent strikers available to be fair, maybe Hugill. I have faith that Edmo will do the job if he gets the chance.

3.) 24 Jul 2019 10:31:57
What’s going on here!? This is the 3rd time I’ve agreed with you George!

4.) 24 Jul 2019 16:03:00
Yes George the only panic point I am creeping up on is Centre Back.



18 Jul 2019 14:54:39
Samu gone to Girona. Do we not play them 29 July?


1.) 18 Jul 2019 15:33:02
Indeed. Well, actually 27th isn't it. And Girona also play Derby two days previously, so it will be interesting which of those matches features the greater proportion of Girona's first team - of course there could be a mixture for both, and I guess Said could play in either.

Likewise, it will be very interesting to see which of our players are there and which in Sardinia. Presumably Bielsa will want his likely starters for Brizzle playing together, but we can only guess whether he will choose to take them to Sardinia or Tad.



09 Jul 2019 22:30:30
Of the half dozen names being bandied about for CB I have no preference I do however prefer that any move is swift and decisive. Too much have we shilly-shallied allowing the enemy to jump in and beat us. Let us quietly decide our target (s) and quietly negotiate and loudly anounce our new signing.


1.) 10 Jul 2019 08:13:51
Really think white is his replacement, we were short on cover even with pontus . Doesn't seem much rush to bring someone in for bielsa's pre-season. Would not be surprised with no one coming in, but using what players we have. Not learnt much from last season!

2.) 10 Jul 2019 10:38:47
Mezzer I am sadly afraid you may be only too right. Surely MB can see we need a Rock at the back an old head to bring on the kids and mop up Coopers mistakes. Williams, Cahill, etc. There are a few out there. Just hoping right now that White is the real deal from day One.

3.) 10 Jul 2019 15:05:12
I could see White talking over from Phillips. In effect White is an upgrade/ replacement on Diaz.

4.) 10 Jul 2019 17:40:37
I really can only see us getting some more players in as replacements for Phillips and Roofe, don't think despite all the rumours that we will sign another centre half. Bielsa likes his small squad of players so we were told, so can't believe anything will be different. The rush of players we got in last week was done with the Knowledge that Bielsa was letting Pontus to (IMO) . Can't wait for the season to start now, was expecting good things this season after coming so close last time, but as usual we operate like it's pantomime season. We always seem to go two steps forward then call in a big hole.

5.) 10 Jul 2019 18:18:37
Or even fall in a big hole.

Is Sunjic to Birmingham another evidence of Leeds amatuer dilly dally approach to transfers?


1.) 25 Jul 2019 14:28:18
Maybe, but other than the papers and online media did anyone from the club confirm our apparent interest?
My issue is how can Birmingham be spending such cash when they’ve just been done for ffp irregularity? Surely spending decent cash this year will impact them again with the last 2 years taken into it as well!

2.) 25 Jul 2019 15:24:36
maybe we ain't interested but if not why not. we will see next year this guy is class above who we have. phillips for him plus a few million to get a defender and maybe even a forward would of been great business. not doing this will be the biggest mistake of the window mark my words the oricle has spoken!

3.) 25 Jul 2019 15:40:22
Another probable piece of dilly dally evidence is the Birmingham capture of another figure we were "interested in", Jake Clarke Salter.

4.) 25 Jul 2019 15:49:20
Sunjic is a class player will be wasted at Birmingham. Another who could have improved us. I think we jut up their profile in the media so some one else can buy them.

5.) 25 Jul 2019 16:22:53
Maybe they are going to take a gamble like Villa did and pray they get promoted thus avoiding any punishment!

6.) 25 Jul 2019 17:00:33
like derby and sheff wed also avioded punishment by getting promotion. oh no wait. you can bend the FFP rules if you want to be ambitious.

7.) 25 Jul 2019 17:04:01
Another slant on our recruitment drive. Do we offer derisory amounts to selling teams just to appease us fans with the "well we are trying". This was a ploy adopted by Wenger when he never really had any money to spend and the fans were restless.

8.) 25 Jul 2019 16:59:51
Just a sign that after 30 odd million in player sales we are broke.

9.) 25 Jul 2019 18:49:42
Apparently the powers that be have stayed on in Australia this week, so I wouldn't have thought incoming signings will have been at the top of their Agenda. I think we have to accept that the regime running the Club at present are seemingly happy with the squad we have got and are not interested in any major investment.

10.) 25 Jul 2019 18:52:04
I think that is a good point Leodis. How many players have we been chasing and ended up with the Silver Medal? James springs to mind to back your theory.

11.) 25 Jul 2019 19:15:04
Not interested in investment full stop.

12.) 25 Jul 2019 20:08:25
We have to understand that our chairman has no money, and we must believe in what he is doing, MB will walk if he see his the team doing badly, but as for now that not how he see it. As long as we are play great football it really doesn’t matter if we stay in this league for another few years.

13.) 25 Jul 2019 20:20:52
whiteman one thing honestly because i do respect your opinion

why must we believe in what he is doing?

I believe my eyes and my judgement

poor defence made weaker by losing its best defender is something i can not believe in

i have hope in the fact we are after gibson but if we don't sign a defender soon we are up the creek and i can't believe in that.

14.) 25 Jul 2019 20:56:54
No money? I for one wish I was a tenner behind him.

15.) 25 Jul 2019 22:13:10
Bermondsey, I am with you mate, but unfortunately some don’t get it, read the post others have posted. We can’t do much about the situation so we have to go with it, for peace of mind it nothing else.

16.) 25 Jul 2019 22:23:02
Some just don’t understand that Radz has no money that’s why we didn’t do business in January, and for no other reason. We are now selling to buy or exchanging players to get players, what have you got to do for some to get it? unbelievable naive simple.

17.) 25 Jul 2019 22:26:14
Bermondsey I don’t believe in Radz, never have and never will, but as I said can’t do much about it, no point getting arse about it, let just hope we get some good football, and ✔️ another year off.

18.) 26 Jul 2019 07:07:08
Whiteman. I respect your view and I love that you put a positive spin on it. You put the 'support' back in 'supporter'.

Que the next 20 posts accusing me of saying any negative posters aren't supporters.

19.) 26 Jul 2019 09:42:39
Hold on a second, people saying AR has no money? He clearly does have money but it's Leeds United that don't, they are a seperate thing altogether.
He can't just send money from his other businesses or his personal fortune into the Leeds United bank account because that would be against the FFP rules.
Why do you think other clubs sell their ground to their owners?
Yes, to get money into the club! That is all!

20.) 26 Jul 2019 11:08:40
Then don’t but a club that needs major investment, because he didn’t have a million to buy a player in January, he could have had 177 million to spend had in invested then, and now we could have been paying in a bigger league.



23 Jul 2019 22:10:59
I worry about additions. Surely Bielsas idea was to get work done early. One of the hardest jobs is drilling newbies into his high press style. That, obviously is done pre season, in friendlies. How many friendlies do we have left? Is anybody nailed on to join?


1.) 23 Jul 2019 23:27:05
For me it doesn’t really matter what we feel about whether the squad has improved it’s about whether Bielsa feels it has and that he has the right resources . I feel that he feels he has. Harrison 2 will be better than Harrison one, Costa will be miles better than brown or Baker, Clarke will have a full year of First team action, He believes White is ready to add more as CB.

He clearly felt that Pontus was a problem in the squad and he has gone. Shackleton has graduated to a bigger role. Bogusz wasn’t even around this time last year. On top of that Stevens, Gotts, Davis, etc have one more years experience in a league winning and penalty winning team. Oh yes and Casilla has had a few months to get used to championship football. My question mark is still over CB, but I think it’s clear Bielsa thinks we are stronger this year than we were last year.

We are paying the man a lot of cash to manage, he did well last year and he is clearly not stupid! I think we might be in for a few surprises and I think we might do rather well. Let’s enjoy it!

2.) 24 Jul 2019 00:36:51
Clearly not stupid? Look at last seasons run in. Good case for saying/ alleging stupidity or too stubborn and close minded. Let's see if the 'emperor's new clothes' scenario doesn't repeat itself next season.

3.) 24 Jul 2019 07:26:01
Can’t see any additional players coming in now, what we have is what we got, not sure it’s going to go the way some see it, for me play offs at best. Just hope that I see it wrong.

4.) 24 Jul 2019 08:49:57
It’s funny how we always like the things that make Bielsa what he is and enabled him to do what he did, but then we want him to change and do it differently! Really isn’t going to happen, he will try to do it his way again and if it doesn’t work we’ll all move on! Let’s see!

5.) 24 Jul 2019 10:00:43
Nobody else will be joining. We will play the hand that we have.

6.) 24 Jul 2019 10:15:59
Agree Spanish. The thing that baffles me, is, in the eventuality that we don’t go up, and he does move on, how on earth are we going to get someone better? Will we ever get to see the exciting football he brings with him? I for one don’t want to go back to some dross English style lump it rubbish. In fact, the word should not be baffled, but worried.

7.) 24 Jul 2019 11:53:24
for the record with MB I am never a fan of a manager like that in this league, I much prefer a sam alydice, neil warnock type. Look at villa and sheff utd managers both play a way that gets the best out of their team. getting sheff utd promoted shows their manager is a class above ours who failed with a better team

great football has it's place, that place is champs league and interantional football, the championship is about scrapping, nasty football and getting the best out of second rate players and nicking results. somthing MB didn't do last season. so yes he is silly, last year he was wrong and this year it doesn't seem like he has learnt his lesson. my predcitiosome great football, some awful results and ulitmatly failiure with a following summer with our best players leaving.

so I do moan but i am consistant with it.

8.) 24 Jul 2019 12:03:21
Bielsaball is no doubt one of the most exciting and entertaining ways to play football and if you have the right players you will do well. Pep and Poch have adapted that brand to suit the English game, let's hope Bubs can as well, he has had a season under his belt so will know more about this division and its pitfalls. It boils down to if the squad is good enough and Bubs look at teams like Millwall and come up with a plan.

9.) 24 Jul 2019 12:32:13
Brightwhite the answer is Radz had the opportunity and let it slide away, if MB moves on and we are still in this position there is only one person to blame and that the one you support.

10.) 24 Jul 2019 13:27:35
Berno, I can see you as a Sam Allardyce or Harry sort of Man, meat and two veg, none of this foreign nonsense!

11.) 24 Jul 2019 16:33:52
Whiteman. I support Leeds United. I don’t go to watch, cheer, and support Radz!?

12.) 24 Jul 2019 17:26:29
Brightwhite then you can’t complain if MB moves on and we are left with 💩.

13.) 24 Jul 2019 20:24:44
Bielsa has stayed, because Radz has agreed to deliver what Bielsa wanted, nothing less. Quite simple. I think the only reason now that MB will walk, is at the end of the season if HE doesn’t deliver promotion. He’s a perfectionist, and doesn’t like failure.



20 Jul 2019 17:49:55
Letter to Leeds United IT team. Player Profiles? How long does it take to get a body in a phot booth and then upload a picure? Obviously to you guys the answer is months.
Leif Davis, Ben White, Helder Costa. It's not as if White and Costa are half a world away and Lord knows how long Davis has been on the payroll. Come on lads fingers out get some work done. I remember pointing out a very similar lax approach a year ago and getting some lame excuse. Please, when you/ if you (if you can) read this get up to speed. A schoolboy with with w97 could have done this by now.




20 Jul 2019 17:37:46
Kwame Yeboah. Any relation?


1.) 21 Jul 2019 10:05:28
Don’t think so

Tony has a son called kelvin that plays.



17 Jul 2019 16:19:15
We let James slip thro our fingers now it looks like we are doing the same with O'Dowda. Not only is he a skillfull winger with a peach of a left foot he is also desperate to join.


1.) 17 Jul 2019 17:37:47
No James was rads lack of funds or caring he wants to make money on the cheap like Bates needs to speculate to accumulate.

2.) 17 Jul 2019 18:06:07
Leodis, I agree on O'Dowda, why Bielsa/ Orta keep chasing Kent/ Wilson, who obviously do not want to be here, when he is available and apparently very keen to come here is totally beyond me.

Given that Clarke will not be with usnext season and it would seem unlikely that Harrison will be, it's not like bringing in another winger on a permanent contract would blocking McCarron's progression, however big their hopes are for the lad. I'd also have thought that even (in time) if Odour and Hosanna prove to be good enough for the first team, they seem more likely to be decent wing-backs, rather than pure wingers, though Spanish and others may have better knowledge on this.

Good idea Alf and surely the obvious answer.
However as a fan of factory gates United all my life and so was my dad and so was his dad, etc. etc. My life would end if you took it away. I just could not bring myself to cheer the players or wear any colour from that little team down the road.
It will happen and it should happen but the sort of clubs in enough trouble to even consider it is where the true dyed in the wool supporters reside. It is those I will feel sorry for (as I will for all Bury supporters if the worse happens) . let's hope a generous buyer comes along and turns it around.

A lot of it influenced by the scattergun approach to signings a couple of years ago.
