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.

I have only seen 45mins of England U21s but am even more perplexed/ frustrated/ angry why Bamford gets picked before Nketiah?


1.) 15 Oct 2019 20:42:18
What more does the boy have to do?

2.) 15 Oct 2019 20:44:11
Agree leodis, Eddie looks a natural goalscorer that will score more of his chances than he misses, same cannot be said for bamford.

3.) 15 Oct 2019 21:01:25
Leo Persuade Bub to go 4-4-2.

4.) 15 Oct 2019 22:46:34
4-4-2 agreed . Eddie must start. especially at home.

5.) 15 Oct 2019 23:03:25
Not great goals, not skilful goals, but three of em. got to get a chance soon.



15 Oct 2019 10:41:17
Basically, a question. One of the positions that appears not to be clicking is the Bielsa preferred "Enganche"
Love him or loathe him the only one who performed there (some would say not often enough) was Samu Saiz. So, does anyone out there have any names for a No. 10 with nimble feet and a brain to match, who can see a chink of light, enough for a through ball, before anyone else. Personally I think I don't know him but he is currently plying his trade abroad?


1.) 15 Oct 2019 11:26:32
roberts might be one given time, but agree saiz was a real talent. sadly until we find another one we need to find a different way. Saiz often took 2-3 defenders out of the game giving our other players more space.

2.) 15 Oct 2019 11:59:43
No one we can afford. Honestly believe KP could play better there than DM but would have to be given time and we do not have cover at DM, hence big mistake to let Diaz move on.

3.) 15 Oct 2019 23:06:29
We miss Saiz, defo. But the rest of the lads carried him for some games, and we can’t be tarred with gobbing incidents. Need to find another like him, but really think that Tyler can step up, too.



14 Oct 2019 16:23:36
I believe the way Radz is thinking is that he cannot hit the jackpot alone and he is quite prepared to dilute his share to get there. If/ when he does get there then everything is on the table up to and including a full takeover. It will be very interesting if he goes with (his pal) the mega bucks QSI. A little bit now to give us a push then an avalanche next season in the big time.


1.) 14 Oct 2019 17:43:28
Hope it's sincerely true . but. heard this all before from
Radz before earlier this year c. hope its not pr spin and bullshit from Radz. he definitely needs to seek seeious investment urgently as he has very little to no intention to spennd his own wealth . so in all honesty betters still Radz sells up

2.) 14 Oct 2019 22:40:46
I think AR is looking for money to spend in January. May leave him more vulnerable to takeover later but he knows he needs to get the club up for the big money. He knows what Aston Villa did in the second half of last season and he knows we are stuttering - though not far off. Just need that extra bit of quality in the final third. Enganche!

3.) 15 Oct 2019 10:03:16
With you the Bazooka - we aren’t going to progress with Radz short arms and deep pockets.

4.) 15 Oct 2019 11:27:54
agree my biggest worry is we seem to of had investment before yet not really seen that transfer to the pitch.



06 Oct 2019 15:53:59
Anyone who has done it will tell you that refereeing is a thankless task I defer from criticising, except I must say that the gentlemanly thing to do would be for an apology to be made and a red card rescinded. Even the dive was comical. I am sorry Mr Ref but you have been conned. Spoiled the game. It would have been a different outcome without that travesty. By the way there has to be some way/ incentive to get ex pros into refereeing school. Surely it's poacher turned gamekeeper to stop all this.


1.) 06 Oct 2019 16:21:36
I reffed a load of games in my 20s and 30s, and you’re right, it is a thankless task, and depending at what level, it’s horrendous, even threatening.
There are always going to be mistakes, even with VAR as we’ve seen.
There needs to be a better solution, and fast, even if it means two refs with one in each half of the pitch, and four assistants. There’s too much at stake in every division these days, certainly in the PL, and EFL divisions.

2.) 06 Oct 2019 17:23:40
Quite true but it's a team of three or more!
Even then they will make mistakes that happens and I think all fair people will accept it. Am happy with a consistent ref whether consistently good or bad I'll take it.
What I won't take is bias. Didn't see yesterday's game so only know of the one really bad set of decisions.
Wasn't a foul firstly and then even if given wasn't a straight red as there was cover. Very poor.

3.) 06 Oct 2019 19:07:02
You could have six and mistakes will still be made. It was a bad decision alright but it was still a poor performance and the only bad showing of the season imo.

4.) 07 Oct 2019 06:33:00
In the NRL in aus they have a ref in each half of the pitch to keep up with play, I’d be satisfied with a ref with 2 eyes that worked.



05 Oct 2019 17:49:34
I am the first to berate Berardi but today I feel the ref has been conned, and in the worst way possible. The slightest, if at all, touch. If I were to be critical of Berardi I would remind him that he is an experienced player and he should Never give the ref any opportunity to cock it up. My major worry now is what is Bielsa going to do. Is he going to play the only trained, obvious Centre Back or will he stick with his pets and cobble together a back line. Anyone you can think of loses something somewhere else apart from bringing in Struijk. C'mon Marcelo show that you do give the kids chances and pick the lad.


1.) 05 Oct 2019 18:30:58
Dallas will be RB and Ayling CB.

2.) 05 Oct 2019 19:13:41
And when the moon is the seventh house and Venus aligns with Mars.

3.) 05 Oct 2019 20:27:46
Bielsa will continue to play square pegs in round holes rather than bringing in a centre half from the u23s in struijk. Does he not trust the player? Just do not get bielsa's insistence on flogging the same old horse.

Is Bamford auditioning for the Mick Jones role then bring on Eddie for the Alan Clarke role.
Just a thought, if Bamford is doing so well holding the ball and bringing others into play how we are still not scoring goals? From anyone.

Sorry Martyn, I take your point and worship the man for everything he has done for Leeds United. I (and many others) cannot help feeling that he does have a flaw in him (dont we all) that is his strong reluctance to change, or even to try a change. His perseverance with players who for whatever reason are not performing. By the way, never played FIFA so have no claims in that realm either. I fully accept the he is the manager, getting the big bucks and if his "intransigence" keeps us at number one then long may he reign. It will not stop me pointing out differences of opinion however. No doubt you will do the very same as and when the occasion arises.

Double whammy. Bamford is not very good and very unlucky.

If it's true, hope it's the Qataris, maybe the American but hope the Italian club is not Brescia!

Division between supporters, Malta? Why of course there is. Everyone of us thinks we could manage the Mighty Whites, better than the incumbents. You, like me, like everyone else have their favourites and knows exactly what is wrong with the others, and, cannot understand why they are being picked week in, week out. That is the lot of a supporter. For any team, in any division. And thanks to the medium of this venerable website we get to vent our anger night and day. As a matter of interest I too agree that Costa is a left winger, end of and Harrison is a significant cause of lack of goals. Don't get me started on Alioski! As for Radz I truly believe his heart is in the right place I only wish he had a few more bob in his pocket. Vive la Division! It's what keep the whole world turning.

That's not the beautiful game Bermo? don't think it's quite time for me to dust off my "Hecky out" posters just yet. Besides I think I have run out of space for another name. We carry possession, we usually carry chances it's just that we cannot finish. Possibly a Gayle or a Maupay or even a Nketiah would have found the net on a more regular basis. I only hope now that either stubborn Marcelo sees the light or suddenly BamBam finds his form. Either way, it is what it is til January.
