Chris Wood again we all have to rethink our opinions on our striker at this rate 20 goals plus no bother to this guy.
24 Sep 2016 16:10:40
I don't have to rethink my opinion Wex old boy. Have always had him down as a 20 goal a season striker and have defended him countless times this season. With 7 in 11 (so far at HT) , he is a certain starter in my opinion. Good sub? Are people on here real? The trouble is with a lot on here and I'm not having a go go overboard after one or two results. We lose and Monk should be sacked, Wood doesn't score and he should be a sub. On the flip side we win a couple and we're going up, Wood scores (again) and everyone loves him again. Said it countless times, we will have our ups and downs (it's written in the song) but judge the team and the man over a season!
Up the whites, down the pints!

Very accurate MM, I'm guilty of having posted, thought, and said every point you make above.
Got to try and stay grounded I will.

There are plenty out there that cannot see the Wood for the trees. Look in the mirror and then criticise.
24 Sep 2016 20:40:50
I don't think a lot of people understand that he is still a young striker and that he feeds off confidence MM. Once he scores a couple of times in a row he tends to go on and have a run of getting 5 or 6, sadly, as you said, he fails to score in one match then everyone jumps on him and his confidence plummets.
When he gets his tail up he has the ability to put in some very smart and powerful finishes (he nearly got one today but for the timely intervention of the post) , saw him hit more than a couple of screamers before joining us, its why we had to fend off so many clubs to get him.
Now, at 7 in 11, I would love to see just what he could do if people got behind him wholeheartedly for a change and tried to build him back up when he makes a mistake. We haven't seen him at his best yet, if we can get him there I honestly think he will fire us to a top six place this year.
Ps Also for all the people saying, well yes but he misses 5 for every 1 he scores, so what? used to take Beckford 10 attempts. As long as he produces 6 a game then he's golden.

Big Frank going to Southport. If he returns as accomplished as Charlie Taylor following his loan at Fleetwood I for one would be very happy.

Scott hogan people! Would suit lufc. Just the type of striker we need 😀.
18 Sep 2016 17:35:12
spoke about him about 6 months ago struggled to keep a regular place in squad then they started to play him and goal after goal, had leg break just before end of season .
I had read that Newcastle were in the mix, think he will be between 6-8mil .
18 Sep 2016 23:45:31
Has a good goal to game ratio but has missed a lot of football due to injury (over 2 seasons worth of games already at 24yrs, that's pretty worriying) . If he is going for around the £8m mark and we have the cash to spend then why wouldn't we go for Rhodes?
Middlesbrough have brought in Negredo, Rhodes can't get a game, pretty sure they would sell for £8m. Has scored 20+ in 3 of his 4 full seasons at this level.
Personally I would take Matej Vydra as a cheaper option. Did really well then hit a bit of a wall. Now he would be available for a steal which is pretty much what happened when we brought Rosco in from Cardiff.
19 Sep 2016 07:24:28
Vydra went to Derby for £8m.
19 Sep 2016 23:52:07
Fair point SG, knew he was at Derby but had it in my head it was only on loan, stupid brain lying to me.
Wow £8m, that's a ridiculous overspend on an out of form player, honestly thought he would be (and should be) valued around the £3-4m mark after a couple of sub standard seasons and might be worth a punt. Think Derby might live to regret that one.

Nigel Reo Coker being watched by Leeds as badly needed midfield cover.
12 Sep 2016 17:14:48
If you're being sarcastic that is very funny.
13 Sep 2016 13:31:00
the first bit wasn't but the second bit was.
12 sep 2016 13:21:03
have heard that fl are doing final checks on new owners (meant to be andrea radrizanni and chinese or singapore investors) beayong purchased mp and silva sports media company - now they want to buy lufc from massimo - where mc will keep 16.68% shares (not a controlling amount/ minimum amount the fl will allow you to have without doing the usual checks (fit and proper) mc will be found guilty over the cagliari new stadium scandle for fraud/ misappropriation of funds, bribary/ corruption charges - main reason for selling up/ getting rid of gfh, who have a £17m debt owed to them by lufc, which is to be paid on the sale of lufc or promotion to the premiership - let's hope it happens sooner or later? mot.

If Cellino sees a trainwreck ahead as regards Cagliari stadium of course he's going to take evading action featuring not getting it in the neck as regards fit and proper person test. Damage limitation time. Similarly, GFH will want their money back before the ordure hits the fan. More damage limitation otherwise why have they already done what they have done? I'm not saying rumour is true but it makes perfectly good sense .
10 Sep 2016 21:16:00
I heard a Rumour today that Cellino has bought GFH's 25% share.
10 Sep 2016 14:06:47
There are rumours galore flying around that z takeover had been done and is awaiting FL approval.
12 sep 2016 13:31:23
yes, very true
new owners awaiting final approval from fl
should be complete in next 10-15 days.

Leeds looking at Kieran Richardson.

Omg it just gets worse we are only after Federico Macheda he hasn't played for ages. I've lost all faith now. Marching down together.
04 Sep 2016 09:24:46
We're have you heard that ebo?
04 Sep 2016 06:34:08
I think you should have faith ebo. If he is sh1t he won't get a game. If you have lost faith this year you must have been in a coma for the preceding 10 years. This is the best manager and best squad we have had since we were in the 1st division IMO. Don't give up on our team

Well it's all unravelling this morning, Bamba gone, Romario Viera Ronaldos Brother has joined, I didn't even know he has a twin! 😂 how exciting is that! and we did try to sign a Striker the kid from arsenal but was blocked at the last minute by Wenger! Awesome, come on GM and the boys, let's beat the dog botherers, I will be there see you in the peacock fellow leeds optimists MOT 😎.
01 Sep 2016 14:01:10
i remember reading a report when viera was first signed about his brother and we had the chance to sign both (i think they were both on a trial at the time) but chose not to sign Romario cause he wasnt as good. Maybe he has improved or Ronaldo has turned out so good we changed our mind.
02 Sep 2016 18:45:15
"sign my brother or I won't sign the contract" was probably what ronaldo said.
03 Sep 2016 11:40:46
Well that's how we signed Rod Wallace. His twin Ray was possibly the worst ever player l have seen in a Leeds shirt.
