Anyone know the latest on Zan Bededicic? I thought he might turn out to be our best summer signing, but he seems to have gone AWOL. Is he injured?

Yh, he picked up an injury quite a while ago. Darko used to confirm the injuries on LUTV match previews and he always said Benedicic was out.
He is only 18, a lot of youngsters already :/

He got a concussion then pulled his hamstring a week later in training. Don't know how bad but can't see them trying to rush him back as we have a abundance of midfielders at the moment.

I am understood to believe he has a knee injury and need an operation. Milan have to decide what to do as he is only on loan.

hence not in any sqauds

I don't you will be shouting yippee in a few weeks time. Redders good with the academy and did well to get the results he did but he could have easily lost all those games. I don't think redders will stay the distance and we would then probably lose a good academy coach.
We could have won today. Mowatt should have made it 2-0 and Darko made a mistake putting Morison out wide. He didn't understand that Morison was danderous on the right because he was making runs from the centre. Moving him there was a basic error. I would hope, but should know better, that MC should have learnt that an experienced manager should be brought in and allowed to manage. MC should stick to being president. Some hope!

I keep saying it but NR has a dreadful record. Worse than Dave Hockaday and less experience. can't believe people are so happy to have a guy with 24% win ratio as coach. I really hope I will be eating my words but nobody seems to be thinking with their head everyone seems caught in the romance of it. He has had 9 games in charge of a championship side in total. He has only looked after 67 games in his life omfg this has car crash all over it. Really hope I am wrong.

Your right Spain and we was more than a little lucky to win the ones we did under him as the stats showed we were out played. From what I've read he's only been put in as caretaker again anyway but I really wish we would dump this coach concept and revert back to a manager and a good experienced one at that but who would come now? It saddens me but MC is quickly making it a no go zone for any manager/coach worth there salt.

Omg, give him a chance, he's been written off before he even starts, the football we played and results we got we're the best this season & without them we'd be in the brown stuff. I agree he'll do well to match the points ratio he got before, but it was correct for darko to go.

Have seen it mentioned on a couple of sites (HITC etc) that seems to be a bit of a rumour that if we lose at norwich tonight (which has to be on cards) and don't beat wolves on Sat then Milanic is out the door.

The thinking is that we have a ready made replacement in Redders. This could just be lazy rumour but if we do lose tonight then coach will have a worst record than big Dave Whackaday and that will not be good for him in MC eyes.

What do we all think? my opinion is it would be too soon to judge after 6 games, mind you if after 8 you haven't won then maybe it just ain't meant to be.

It's too early to sack Milanic. He came with some pedigree, so you give him time. Also, it's not just the results, but how the team plays. The team was clueless under Hockaday. The team has been in nearly every match under Milanic, though the results are satisfying to no one. At some point, you just have to be patient with a manager and give more than 5 matches to succeed or fail.

Josip Ilicic could be output from Fiorentina. It is estimated a transfer loan, but could be also taken into account the possibility of a sale. The Slovenian facing a good deal can go. Indirect contacts in Germany (Freiburg idea) and the satisfaction of Leeds in England, who could think only on the basis of a loan. In Italy, however, there is always the satisfaction of Sassuolo.

His wife & child just arrived. Will take them all time to adjust. If he starts playing well in first team he will feel better about whole situation & MC will make sure he is well taken care of. If he still feels the same next May so be it but he's a professional footballer who cannot stay playing in Brasil if he has ambition so knows Europe is where his future lays. How can we believe press reports as most are wrong when it comes to lufc so stop worrying. We have enough talent with or without the lad

We do not have the talent to be successful without him. Even with Redders in charge, our ability to retain possession was substandard (it's worse with the other two managers). I think his flair would eventually mesh well with Antenucci, Doukara, and Bianchi.

virginiawhites

That's a crazy response as we've not even seen him play in first team yet. That's just the ridiculous pressure he doesn't need. We've got many others coming through who have enormous potential & talent eg Dawson, Parkin, Phillips etc. Why some people are making stupid statements which imply we're not good enough without him is beyond me. It's a team game & we're imroving game on game.

Quite right Slough. And I'm still thinking Benedicic might be the best of the lot. No way are we reliant on Adryan, that's a ridiculous thing to say

Adryan definitely brings something to the table. He has that Brazilian inherited flair we all know and love. Makes Very aggressive runs through defenders with the ball seemingly stuck to his feet.

I'd certainly want him a Leeds United player next year. I imagine he'll be amazing next season, if not late this one.

Redders will do a job on him.

there is a petition out at the moment requesting the FL to act in the best interests of LUFC and hounding MC is not.

Doesnt matter if your for or against MC only if you recognise that he is doing a better job for us than previous owners and if he was to be forced out we would be in a really bad place.

Mail just raking over the coals, rules state Cellino has to tell them of any changes to his circumstances that affect his standing.

The FL would be entering new ground here so in some ways bring it on I say. I say that cause I do believe in our commercial justice and I can't see the FL rules being tight enough here to force a sale of Leeds which would mean a loss to MC.

As our laws always favour rich people who own stuff then FL would have its work cut out, also their motivation on this must be called into question f it put the club in danger, any legal eagle will have a field day on this you would think

Was not saying I don't believe it but the only person who has access to the report is Massimos Italian lawyer and I doubt if he would leak what it says to the mail. I think the mail is speculating what it says to stir up trouble. I believe the FL want it but their rules state he only needs to inform them if something has changed to his circumstances that affect his fit and proper status. At the moment no one knows it has. If the lawyers are appealing the decision then it still has not. The judgement has been released for ages and if the FL thought they were on solid ground they would have been all over Massimo by now

Andy you're wrong, Mr 9300 miles knows who owns ER now & it is Jacob Adler & fiends, names unknown atm. I think we all thought it was Bates & Co & maybe wanted it to be but for once Birdseye is not guilty.
No Cellino has a few weeks to do the deal or look even worse than he already does atm. Brining Bates back into Lufc & then not buying ER are going to create a backlash with manysupporters. I truly hope he knows what he's doing & is not playing us

Shouldn't need to go on loan imo. How long are lufc going to overlook, bypass this exciting talent before finally giving him a run of games. We need a No10 & he should be given a go. Could play almost any attacking mf role so why send him out on loan. Just the first of many academy lads becomming despondant at not being given the chance they've earned.

Mitchell as you're aware by now your post was a wrong un, as for Dawson going out on loan elsewhere, same argument applies, Why? Probably yet another fan who wants Adryan in the team although right at this moment Dawson is the better option & there isof course room for both in matchday squad. This lad Dawson is clearly Leeds thru n thru, offers us dynamic pace for 90 mins in a midfield struggling to create at times and in my opinion is better than Sloth right now so I reiterate why should he be overlooked. It's ridiculous

Fair point, I just genuinely feel if he is being overlooked which he has being for the last 2 seasons then why let him get better experience than playing under 21s for another 6-12 month. Oh and no I'm not bothered about Adryan as I haven't seen him play, however he flopped in Italy by the sound of it but making waves in under 21s so can see him being another bit part inconsistent player if I'm being brutally honest

Some of the players seem to think if they get to er on a Saturday they will be in team.

It's just massivego showing his true colours - an arrogant little * who thinks that because he's in control then he must always be right. He will find out what fancy-dan Italian players are like once the cold, ice & snow arrives - he will no doubt be back in the Med on his yacht (always assuming that the judge has not confiscated it!

Warnock has been one of our best players this season who always gives 100% -he would not have turned his back on Saturday like Berardi and allowed Maguire space for the shot resulting in the goal.

He just loves to be popular - it's a pity he did not learn more about football during his 18years as Cagliari owner, who sacked his 36th manager in 22 years. Actions speak louder than words, the facts are there to be seen and noted.

I'm certainly not racist and entitled to comment on a man who I believe (and i'm supported by the FA) should not be the owner OF LUFC. He does not hold back on others including ex managers and players currently playing for the club who cannot speak out for themselves for obvious reasons.
We do still live in a democratic country please rember that before threating censorship!

Any one who runs a business in this country will look at how to pay less tax, this is whether you are good enough to do your own accounts or not.
Those with lots of money tend to hire people who will advise them in investment or placing money in other countries.
So many high profile big names have been found out in tax avoidance to some degrees, although exposed these have not been constantly maligned by the media, tax on a yacht, come on. Would be interesting to investigate all persons involved with the FA and Fl and ensure ALL there fiancés were legal and above board .

Richard, I could not give a monkeys as to what colour, nationality or sexual preference a player has .
For years we have sold are young talent and signed players either ex-premier if free, rarely has there been money spent .
I hope like others this year is the start of our club becoming promotion prospect for next year .
Still work and players to move on, some of the players yes may not work, but that's why they are at Leeds on loan with an option to buy .
Yes I think most of us would have liked Steve Clarke, but it has not happened so I will support however is coach until I feel it's time for them to go .
Personally I would love to see some fancy football, quick note to GB, love the shirt gesture .

MC like or loave him has saved this club, he has put money into the club made it stable and brought some good clubs to it. the future is looking brighter since he has taken over. I think warnock should be in first team and don't always agree with MC and what he does but get a grip. Maybe MC brought in itialians as he knows them and know they are good just as redknapp might bring in englishmen if he went to italy as he would know them and what they can do. go join EDL with the other knuckle draggers

if anyone wants a bit of insight to DH and his case you should read this.

http://www.sportingintelligence.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/GFH-Haigh-Sep-14.pdf

It is court transcript of him asking for more money. He would like his money upped from 500per week to 5500 per week living expenses while in jail.

lists include 500pw on phone calls
250 pw to pay for other inmates calls
500pw food and clothing. while in jail
the list goes on and the judge has none of it.

Also what comes to light is more details of the case against him and what his defence will be.

In short someone hacked his email account sent various emails and invoices plus requests asking companies to amend invoices all to be paid into his bank account and then use that money from his bank account all without his knowledge.

I know we have a legal type on this forum maybe they could look at it with better eyes than I and give their opinion

Very interesting and imo he is in trouble

LUFC Spain I think he already is in trouble being locked up in Dubai!

In my experience and my opinion Dubai is a false place and a bit odd, the normal people in hotels etc are great very helpful but you kinda get the feeling you don't want to do anything that may offend (even if by accident) or that would be it, you could be sent away for ages for not much, would not trust their justice system methinks.

As for DH if that is his defense then oh dear, mails/banks can be hacked but will be evidence of this sooooooo David not looking good.

Also how does anyone spend all that money in a month in jail!

I would not wish to be in his place no matter how much money he has, still he might lose a bit of weight now ha ha

DG the voice of reason

Having worked in Dubai and Abu Dhabi the rules are quite clear. They are to a certain extent 'liberal' countries, Dubai moreso than Abu Dhabi but God help you if you fall foul of the law. It is a very safe place to live (apart from their driving!) crime is practically non existant and if you obey the rules its a good a place as any.
However, flout the rules, break the law and bang, you're in prison. Guilty, innocent is irrelavent. You will be thrown in prison without a second glance and for how long is anyones guess. Could be a day, a week, a month or a year. They will let you go whenever they see fit.
Haigh will be going through hell over there and to be honest he could still be in there in five years time. Unless the Chief of Police has a change of heart!

DG in the trascript his lawyer does claim he has lost 4 stone. However the judge did say this is not a bad thing as he was quite portly before he went inside, and another reason his request of needing 500 per week for food was seen as excessive and ludicrous

So Redders is being linked to Barnsley. Probably for a managers role, didn't see that coming when he didn't get the head coachs role.

Lets just see if his invaluability to the club and the academy keeps him here (if the rumours are true of course)

Could all be paper talk though

Bermondsey White

To lose Redders is a travesty imo. Can you imagine what Cellino will do to our academy & who will run it.
Neil Redfern should have been given job of 1st team coach & brought back Paul hunt, Bromby etc to run academy with Redders overseeing. Now a demoralised Redfern will listen to offers & if there's 1 job he'd take it's Barnsley as it has great memories for him there. Redders deserved his chance & knew the consequences if it went pear shaped. Now Cellino thinks he's doing us & Redders a favour by keeping him at academy. Well he's wrong as all he's done is demoralised the bloke.
Our academy is the last remaining good thing at lufc which is giving us future hope & it's possible MC will ruin it. I only hope he gave Redders a bigger better & worthwhile contract for his work here. To top it off if any of you have seen our U16s you will know we have some very special talent in there which is far better thancurrent U21s potentially speaking. The whole academy know it & are so excited about them after 3 U16s played in U18s other day.
We stand to lose so much if Redders goes as all our juniors will start looking around for better clubs & maybe even end up with Redders at Barnsley if reports are true. Cellino is such an idiot at times. Yea dona a lot of good but structure & morale at lufc is at an all time low & a complete mess. He's his & our own worst enemy right now.

sloughwhites

(1)

That had to be the worst possible scenario. You forgot to mention the part about Cellino wanting to eat our children.

We have to accept that Redders is going to be linked to other clubs. Most of those other clubs will be dissuaded by the compensation that Leeds will ask for in return. If Reading can ask for 400k for Eamonn Dolan, we can ask for at least 1m for Redders. If we learned anything from the Ross transfer, MC & co can negotiate a transfer.

Also, I don't think Redders will take just any job to be the lead guy. He acknowledges that he needs resources.

Anyhow, I hope he stays long term and that we don't lose him. He's a tremendous asset to the club.

I don't recall anywhere Redfearn suggesting he wanted the top job full time. In fact, it's been the opposite. He seems to enjoy his academy (will likely have won himself a nice bonus with his first team brief) and is back to his day job. Far less pressure and more time doing what he ultimately loves which is coaching, minus a lot of the politics.
Hope I'm not wrong but, I said before the summer that Redfearn shouldn't be given the manager's job as he's too valuable to the academy.

Redfearn has said he would like to be a manager, BUT in time! Not now he has business to finish at Leeds and from the interviews I have seen and read he is happy doing what he is doing. Where has it been said he is demoralised?

Already posted my reply on here but didn't make print for some reason. You're commenting on Redders but know nothing about it other than the odd picture.
Quite clear, started off uncertain of taking the job, within a week he knew he wanted it, by the end he desperately wanted the job & thought he'd done enough to get it. Was & stillis demoralised & if you are uncertain about this check out Lucy Ward posts on twtr.
Those closest to Redders know what he felt about it & if we don't lose him to another club I'll be very shocked.
Right that out of the way I think Darko is a good choice provided he gets the time needed. He's a class act who I believe will really get us charging up this league. Top 6 by xmas, top 4 finish MOT

Graham Bean (consultant to the club) has been sacked. Something to do with the re-scheduling of the Reading Match on Wednesday.

The fact that we play Sheff Wed on Saturday at 12.15 and Mr Cellino is not happy. He wasnt around when it was done.

He moved the game and only gives us 2 days to rest before Sheffield so I can see why he is unhappy. Reading asked for the game to be moved as they would only have 2 days rest before they played us!

Also if you believe we are going to get a transfer embargo in the Jan window do we need to be paying a contracts guys wages when there are no contracts to draw up?

I see that as an excuse & not reason to sack him. More to it. Just wish MC would stop the drama's every week. None of this helps with FL on our backs, press reporting badly about him. Players need no distractions now ffs. So we got 3 games in a week, big squad, playing well & a break after it. Stop with the drama's when we're doing well. MC sometimes his own worst enemy.
I can only assume this is to do with FPP & Bean may have spoken to Harvey or along those lines. If so deserved to go but really poor unbelieveable excuse to sack him. Enough nonsense now. Concentrate on football now

He should have been sacked, no football players can recover from a game in 2 days.
Let alone from a game against Reading leading into a derby.

MC employed him before summer he's helped with transfers but if he should have spoken to Massimo and hasn't why is he trying to make such important decisions.

Points are hard to come by in the Championship and there are close margins at the end of the season.

There is another way of looking at this

what the hell has it to do with us?

if a person is sacked in any other company it is nothing to do with anyone other than the company sacking and the ex employee.

Why we see people jumping up and down and going on about unity and stability and making waves blah blah blah blah blah when we know absolutely nothing of what went on.

Why should MC explain every move he makes within lufc. Last time I looked it was his company not a publicly shared company, although it has public interest.

In any other club this would have barley got a mention but here mischievous twitter trolls and cheap journalists make it a sh*t storm.

Massive amount of conjecture, there, Slough.
A consultant can be got rid of whenever you want. Not a full time employee and it is a perfctly good reason to get rid of him. Only giving us two days prep so that another team have an extra day rest before playing us doesn't do us any favours at all so, Bean's actions weren't in the best interests of the team. On top of that, it's Reading who were pretty loud about telling Cellino to do one when he was after their academy boss. This is a non-story. Won't materially affect anything and plenty of people could be brought in to do a similar job on short term contract basis.

We are in one of the best periods I can remember in a long, long time. Don Cellino is doing such great work for us. Why do you feel the need to be so critical? I agree with Spain that this is a minor internal matter. It has nothing to do with the football. For the second time this week I am disgusted with Phil Hay and Adam Pope. Why on earth have they given this so much air time but to cause trouble. If I were Don Cellino I would stop talking to them and then they'd be out of jobs.

Judge in Italy has made the decisions known re her ruling, FL may well now start again against MC even though MC is appealing the ruling so they should wait as I believe in Italian Law this is still early stages and MC not judged guilty yet (unlike our law system).

Of course the FL do appear over eager on this as we know so I'm pretty sure they will be jumping on this asap.

Yes, it would seem it's one law for us and another for the rest of football and I think the FL will be still smarting at their defeat to Cellino's original appeal.

FL on very dodgy ground - Can you imagine the fallout from the media, FL having found MC "improper", he appeals AND wins, runs Leeds, like he has for the last 6 months, then found "dishonest", FL try and get him out of Leeds. How "improper" of the FA is that!!

In my opinion, neither the FL or MC have a strong case, rules are rules but the spirit of enforcing those rules on someone who has and is investing in a club as MC is doing needs to be questioned. The case could be drawn out have numerous iterations and cost FL and Leeds a lot of money. My suspicion is it could also undermine the whole system. Therefore if MC is convicted of dishonesty in Italy, but considering his current good work for Leeds United and it's impact on the FL, would a suspended sentence not server a better purpose? It would be a victory for both parties and keep MC in check should his actions become less than go honourable or dishonest?

R081e

(0)
(0)

It's a tricky one for FL. The wording of the rule basically says that an owner fails the fit and proper persons test if they have 'unspent convictions for dishonesty'.
In other words; having a conviction for dishonesty is not enough. That person would have to have been found guilty and currently be serving the sentence handed down to be deemed 'unfit'.
If Cellino gets a suspended custodial sentence, FL will try and block him.
If Cellino gets a fine and pays it with no commuted sentence, I can't see that FL would have any reason to reapply the test.
That Cellino's lawyer has lodged a formal appeal citing a great many problems with the latest ruling in his fraud case just prolongs the waiting. Personally, I think he should just pay a big fine and be done with it. Must have cost a fortune in lawyers, already but it's probably not the money that's driving his actions in this, more a point of honour. Italians, eh?

CityWhite

Oh and on the 'can buy any company' argument. Think of FL as a private members club. They can't stop anyone owning a football club, that would be a restriction of trade but, they can apply their own rules to determine whether that football club gets it's 'share ticket' allowing the team to compete.
If the club's owner is banned, FL can't force them to sell but, owner would have to have very deep pockets to keep a football club running without the revenue of actually playing football.

That's quite right LUFC Spain, but it won't get into the 12 months until fine is paid, not as you seem to suggest at commencement of proceedings. And of course if it turns out to be a custodial sentence, even a "Suspended" one that's a whole new ball game.

Elland Road to be purchased early November. Stadium purchase is excluded from FFP (purchase of fixed, depreciable assets are not counted).
Oh and on the FFP transfer embargo rubbish; an embargo would begin 1st Jan 2015 and last until club can demonstrate it is fiscally sound. So, presumably if Harvey is determined, he can stop us buying and selling players for a whole day. However, it is still possible Leeds may get fined, although, given where the business is now, compared with 12 months ago, it could be argued that such a fine is unnecessarily punitive. So says a chap I know at t'FA - we were both drunk, mind.

Just thought, I know we are being hit for ffp as GFH ran the club with such large debts. Currently David Haigh is sat in a prison for false invoicing and the auditors at Leeds resigned a week or so back. If Leeds united are a victim of fraudulent crime would this amount (not sure if its big or small) be taken into consideration. If not I can imagine possible legal action from the club. Its been a while since we had a court case.

Translated from Sturm Graz O/S
Co-coach NOVICA Nikcevic also coming

Darko Milanic left Sturm Graz will today in Leeds to clarify the final details with the club head. General Manager Gerhard Goldbrich says: "He gets a huge opportunity in England, we don't spank him."

20.09.2014 ¦ 13:09 ' (DiePresse.com)

Leeds/Ried.The farewell by Darko Milanic as coach of the Austrian Bundesliga Sturm Graz is imminent. As the newspaper "Yorkshire Evening Post" reported on Saturday that the Slovene should on Sunday after England travel, sign a contract with Leeds United and take the training with the second division as early as next week.


Mazhar is an offer of the Club. Did coach Mazhar and his (still) employer Sturm Graz confirmed on Saturday evening before the staunch of the Styrians against SV Ried. "I got an offer from them (Leeds, NB) get", Mazhar said. Storm victory 90 minutes later happy with 1-0. A parting gift?

Leeds is already waiting

Storm announced via Twitter and Facebook: "Darko Milanic there is an offer from Leeds, England. Also the SK storm must reach a request from England." The three times English champions of Leeds has a 3-0 on Saturday afternoon in the second power stage (Championship)-celebrated a home win against Huddersfield Town and eleven improved the table in place.

It probably is: Mazhar flies on Sunday, as already reported by many English media, Leeds.

The earlier storm Defender Mazhar won four times the Slovenian Championship and three times the Cup victory as a coach with NK Maribor from 2008 to 2013. In the summer of the previous year, he received a contract with the "blacky 's" by 2016, it since then but failed, to get the Club on the road to success. Last season, it passed five, making an international launch site was missed after a lamentable early Europacup-Out against the Icelandic representative Breidablik Go ahead place. Currently, the Styrians are at the seventh place. Storm League record with Mazhar stands at 15 WINS, 11 draws and 18 defeats.

"'S is probably the way to the island probably will", said storm General Manager Gerhard Goldbrich during the Bundesliga game in Ried. "Mazhar Gets a huge opportunity in England, we do not To want to beat him." Leeds wants to poach also whose co-coach NOVICA Nikcevic therefore in addition to Mazhar.

According to Goldbrich, storm has already begun the search for a successor to Mazhar. "The requirement profile is clearly defined. We look around us after these types of coach."
