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.

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!

Please, please, please, let this Nolan* rumour be true.
*PS or pretty much any other decent CB.

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.

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.

Samu gone to Girona. Do we not play them 29 July?

leodis

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.

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.

leodis

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.

Next year we can get a couple of River Plate players. They know how to press, just like Leeds. Could be a Bielsa team.

Does anyone else get so annoyed with Noel Whelan's repeated use of "y'know"?

leodis

1.) 23 Nov 2019 17:36:45
"Y'know" it gets on my t*ts.


2.) 23 Nov 2019 18:40:00
Not a fan at all of Noel Whelan as a pundit ( or player) as previously stated on this site . so no surprise others find him irritating.


3.) 23 Nov 2019 19:55:33
“Y’Know leodis I havnt noticed him saying it.


4.) 23 Nov 2019 20:21:24
Keep up Mart!


5.) 23 Nov 2019 20:23:15
King Eddie Gray uses it too.


6.) 23 Nov 2019 20:50:56
Y’Know I could keep it up all night cork, well maybe that’s a bit of wishful thinking 🤔.


7.) 23 Nov 2019 23:23:29
Yeah it’s not his best feature. Prefer the’Get in’s’.


8.) 24 Nov 2019 02:56:46
Could do with one of them too 😜.

Didn't see the U23s first half but did McKinstry, McCalmont or Bogusz get a run out?

leodis

1.) 18 Nov 2019 18:27:57
None of the above were playing. Pablo got 45 minutes, moved well enough but was not all out, playing within himself. Mcarron had a good game and Gotts livened things up when he came on. Thought Stevens did well and my MOM. Edmo back on the goal trail as well. Looks like Berardi will be CB next game. Lads controlled the game and deserved win.


 

 

18 Nov 2019 14:08:12
A good win for U23s. Never really troubled. Again impressed with Struijk but also watched Cresswell and Casey go about their business with growing confidence. Even saw a new one on me, Huggins put in a very promising display. Whilst none of them is the finished article I am quietly confident. I have seen the future, and it's White!

leodis

1.) 18 Nov 2019 14:40:01
Cheers Leodis. Ain’t been able to watch for a while, so always interesting to hear a review!


 

 

14 Nov 2019 16:48:23
Could the slow movement of QSI talks have anything to do with the greatly differing valuations?

leodis

1.) 15 Nov 2019 14:13:36
Valuations according to whom?

Sign Vydra on a goal bonus AND everytime he gets a duck he pays us. That should show how loyal he is?

Between the Bielsa out and Bielsa can do no wrong camps lies the middle ground which 99% of supporters follow. I know coz I asked all of them. Apart from one having his piles done so did not like disturbing him in his time of pain. He is a great manager who plays attractive attacking football but his latin, macho, stubborn streak makes him vulnerable, and open to criticism.

The boring win versus the flamboyant defeat has exercised my mind for many a day and altho there is no definitive answer, today I am leaning towards the boring. Another flamboyant year in the Championship is too much to take. Rather the "one nil to the Arsenal" approach and win trophies and titles galore. Of course all that goes out the window when Qatar Billions come in and we buy who we like, but in the meantime.

For all Bielsa is criticised, he is our manager. For all he makes wrong? decisions, he is our manager and until that changes he has my support (tho I do question him. Often) and all of you here on this forum, wherever you live, however many games you see, does not matter. You all, in your own way, feel for Leeds, live and die for Leeds.

We can all see the light at the end of the tunnel. We are moving the right way (tho not quick enough for some) . We are all revelling in the football offered and, I think you will agree, that with a few tweaks the glory days will return. Today is for enjoying, made sweeter by some of the darker days, not that long ago.

I can only think that the predatory style of Eddie does not suit Bielsa. Somewhat shortsighted I would agree. Where would some of the great teams be without their "fox in the box" and after all what is this game all about. So maybe he doesn't track back. Maybe he doesn't defend but he may get you the 20/ 30 goals that will change your season. I just cannot see the logic in not trying him. We are not getting many goals now from a striker so what's to lose?

I would rather not Alf. It seems unnecessary to disrupt a solid back four when there are a few already on the payroll who can fill the holding MF role. Still the big man must know what he is doing.

Ayling and Dallas sounds like a plan cluey but the old man is set in his ways.

OMG No. With the plethora of talent we have why spoil a solid back four and play "a red card waiting to happen"? McCalmont, Bogusz, Dallas, even Shacks could play that role and leave a settled back four; settled. If I was going to introduce Struijk I would not pick a Derby game so, sad to say, I think the great man will introduce Berardi!

Sadly, I believe that MB has indicated, Eddie is not ready for Saturday.
