Gonna make a prediction. Leeds will buy back Lewis Cook in the not to distant future.
Ok I've had a few but it will happen!


1.) 02 Oct 2018 10:54:01
I'm going to make a prediction too cork. I'm going to get ruined tonight in Las Americas.

2.) 02 Oct 2018 15:17:43
I’m going to make a prediction, Martyn is right! Have a good one!

3.) 02 Oct 2018 17:37:11
Oh you made it Martyn 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Great to hear mate, watch the game in Linekers then hit Veronica’s for a late night boogie?

4.) 02 Oct 2018 17:37:12
Think spurs will outbid us on cook

Milner will sign on a free.

5.) 02 Oct 2018 18:51:30
Don't do veronica, s class. Too many whipper snappers their to push me patience if ya dig me drift 😉 I'll stick to Buzz bar and bulls head it keeps me out of bother.

6.) 02 Oct 2018 21:13:08
Me too Martyn that was tongue firmly in cheek!
Have a great time mate 👍.



25 Sep 2018 21:26:50
Just had a bit of a ding dong with a fellow Leeds fan. He says we under achieved under O'Leary. I say the opposite.
My point was how many of that team would of got in to the Man United team?
Woodgate Ferdinand and Viduka were my opinion. Maybe Gary Kelly.
That team done well imo just a shame things went tits up.


1.) 25 Sep 2018 23:37:50
I personally love that thing, getting to the champions league semi finals is great with the team we had. Tremendous heart. But we underachieved in the fact we didn't win anything, which we probably could've.

2.) 26 Sep 2018 00:26:39
What about dacourt.

3.) 26 Sep 2018 00:29:13
Oh yea and Alan Smith. Oh yea he did get on the man u team. Then there's paul Robinson and radebe who man u tried to buy.

4.) 26 Sep 2018 08:26:28
Dacourt wouldn’t of gotten in above Keane or Scholes and Smith was only a bit part player there. Can’t believe I forgot about Radebe though!

5.) 26 Sep 2018 10:27:04
Sorry Cork ya mate was correct!

6.) 26 Sep 2018 12:35:21
I think we overachieved in the European Cup, but definitely underachieved in all the other competitions, even the League Cup woulda been nice :)

7.) 26 Sep 2018 13:28:56
Ok it would of been nice to win a domestic cup competition but in all honesty we weren’t quite at the level needed for the big trophies although only two or three signings short.
They were great times and I reckon we’re going to see em again soon enough!

8.) 27 Sep 2018 22:31:11
Bowyer was immense in Europe the shining light in that team. Also viduka.

9.) 28 Sep 2018 00:30:42
Don't forget Dom Matteo who scored that goal at the San Siro.

10.) 28 Sep 2018 19:17:10
Harry Kewell.

11.) 29 Sep 2018 14:48:05
Corky We certainly didn't overachieve. If anything, we more underachieved because at the peak of our powers we were a game for anyone. Looking back, one of the errors I believe O'leary made was the underuse of Robbie Keane who was a greater goal threat than Smith.

12.) 01 Oct 2018 11:45:40
Grayson, don't mention the Kboy ;)

13.) 01 Oct 2018 17:40:13
I now he left under a cloud but he was a bit special.



06 Aug 2018 21:30:32
Woods from Brentford is arriving apparently.
Great but if the word is true.


1.) 06 Aug 2018 22:46:57
Would be sensational if true. We'd have some team and bench. I'm still hoping Maddison as well and Kalas but trying not to be greedy.

2.) 06 Aug 2018 23:23:51
Hope you are right, if so we are set for central midfield with Woods, Forshaw, Klich, Baker and Phillips. As I see it it would be Woods and Forshaw first choice if the deal happens and when Forshaw is back from injury. Klich has a massive chance to make midfield his own tho after that performance.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 11:29:17
With Forshaw out for 6 weeks who's to say he will get back in the team? :)



30 Jul 2018 21:58:05
Vydra is a proper footballer imo and a proper loss for Leeds.
Bamford the same, a good player but can he get the 20 odd plus goals we need? A few years back for Boro he was superb so its definitely in him but i'm still not sure.
The 2 Pboro lads. Marriot for me is a big risk after one good season so let fat Frank have him but Madison looks like an assist machine. Stats can be deceptive especially in lower leagues.
We really need one if not two CBs though and i'm pretty sure the boss knows the same.


1.) 31 Jul 2018 09:36:56
The club were not happy with his attitude or wage demands and apparently his fitness was also suspect. If he was all that why wouldn't Frank want to keep him but Derby are keen to sell. Do we really want that kind of player at ER?

2.) 31 Jul 2018 12:55:14
Not sure he was a loss. Think he was above himself, how many have we seen have a prolific season sold for ten mill plus then bomb the next 3 years. Plus not sure what he would have added to team moral or if he would have gotten that head through the dressing room door.

3.) 31 Jul 2018 17:55:31
Having subsequently read of the reasons the deal fell through i have to agree Alf and BIGE. Good player though.



30 Jul 2018 21:45:48
Viera cash is a good deal. The lad showed promise but his poor passing skills would never work under Bielsa. Rather cash in now then get maybe 2 mill after him sitting on bench for a season.


1.) 31 Jul 2018 11:57:28
i agree but the deal still isn't great, his reputation at the moment is at least worth 15 mil, even though he isn't as good as people think.

2.) 31 Jul 2018 19:25:20
#CORKWHITE1.If you believe that is a good deal for Viera, I have a bridge I would like to sell you. You mention in the post above this that you think that signing Marriott and/ or Maddison would be a mistake and tbh you have a fair point. Then you seem happy to write off an England U20 international after a fairly average season by the standard he set himself in his first season, worse than that you probably don't even see the contradiction.

Always going to be a hard game with the way wolves play. First goal was so important.
Never mind lads we played decent and I have every confidence we'll get even better and pick up three points Friday.


1.) 20 Oct 2020 10:25:06
I think that’s it in a nutshell.
If we get the first goal it will cause our opponents to be more attack minded leaving us more space.
If they park the bus or grab the first goal then generally we struggle.
We have to make our chance count. There were three that really were down to poor finishing in the first half and that’s why we lost. Not unlucky. Just failed to take our chances to win the gave when they appeared.



18 Oct 2020 21:51:40
I really wish we were playing villa tomorrow.


1.) 18 Oct 2020 23:13:46
Only a week to wait Cork!

2.) 19 Oct 2020 10:43:34
No team talk needed!



18 Oct 2020 15:15:36
Brighton are no mugs. They know what Ben White is worth. Watching him play now and he's a fabulous player as we already new. Class act and I wish we'd gone the extra to get him in. Pure Bielsa/ Leeds player. At least Koch looking the business.,


1.) 18 Oct 2020 16:02:19
'Going the extra' would not have made any difference to the outcome.

I don't think Brighton ever had any intention of selling BW (this season at least ) their manager Graham Potter said as much several times.

Would have loved BW back but not to be.

2.) 18 Oct 2020 21:25:01
There’s always an extra in business Baz it’s just how far you are willing to go. Personally I’d have gone as far as the end of the ocean.

3.) 18 Oct 2020 23:21:37
Sorry Cork, I think Leeds went far enough chasing Ben White. Top player, but it wasn't meant to be him joining us on a permanent basis.

4.) 19 Oct 2020 05:07:11
White was fantastic for us but they kept putting the price up till it made no sense. £20m would have been great business, £30m a stretch but ok, doable, £40m a gamble because he isn't worth that currently and £50m (because some media touted it) would have been madness, we got 2 Spanish internationals for less. Was fantastic but I'd rather have Koch and Llorente for what we spent tbf.



11 Oct 2020 19:23:34
I'm amazed of all the teams mentioned Strachan has hardly been put in best Bielsa side. I'd of thought he'd be a shoe in with his talents and work rate? Suppose we all see things different.


1.) 11 Oct 2020 20:06:05
Agree cork one of my first names on the team sheet in a belisa (or any) side.

2.) 11 Oct 2020 22:30:26
I put the original post up, my bench would consist of,
Harvey, madeley, Matteo, Batty, Sheridan, Strachan, Charles.
A lot of these players could play multiple positions, however, I think Batts lack of effort for training may end him on bench, for me, if between him or Phillips contending for the number 4 role with billy.

3.) 12 Oct 2020 00:08:37
Strachan is one of the best ever Leeds players. end of.

4.) 12 Oct 2020 07:52:20
He is indeed but I went for Lorimer, who could also do a bit.

5.) 12 Oct 2020 09:10:13
Very valid point Cork however, when I went for my own team they were not necessarily the best players by ability on a FIFA ratings perspective.

For myself, it was the memories they invoke and the excitement they brought to me at the time. I’m 57 so the 92 Wilko times were just magical for me. Also we weren’t always successful and I nearly went for Ian Baird as he always appeared like he would sooner die than lose a game. Which is why I went for Sniffer I thought he was just magical and cool too with the one are salute after scoring. (no Shearer you were not first! )

In midfield I JUST went for Mcallister over Strachan as I loved his ability to create, he certainly never had the all action performance like Strach’s but to me he always seemed like a thoroughbred race horse against many of the guys and thunder midfielder’s of the time.

So the best for me certainly not the best ever, hence no John Charles my dad still raves about him as being one of the best ever period! I just don’t remember him hence my Leeds team which takes me most to my happy place when Nurse says.

6.) 12 Oct 2020 10:57:27
Strachan a complete Bielsa type player as with Pablo.

Both Strachan and Pablo both have been absolutely VITAL players, catalysts for Leeds United success as without them Leeds United would respectively NOT have been promoted in seasons 1989-1990 and 2019-2020.

7.) 12 Oct 2020 10:59:04
For me it’s easy to put Strachan on the wing as I never saw Lorimer but if post was all time I think I’d have to go for Lorimer over Strachan (just)

I know most have Bremner down as our greatest ever player and I can see why but for me Lorimer beats billy as greatest ever player. He made his debut for Leeds at 15 and played till he was 124. Hardest shot in football top scorer and could play as well . I never was lucky enough to see them play but looking over the fottage which I have done for many an hour gray and lorminer are the two that make me smile the most.



28 Sep 2020 19:41:53
Watching the Fulham game and my god the defending is absolutely awful. I can't remember for sure who said it but have an idea it was either George or george who claimed that if Leeds signed Michael Hector last season all our defensive problems would be sorted! Maybe he's just having a bad time of late? Hector I mean.


1.) 28 Sep 2020 22:30:48
Cork Twas I and Welching Berm. Everyone entitled to a bad game but this is the PL, no easy games.

To be fair to James he probably would fair better with better coaching. I believe at Leeds he would get just that!

Hold on Bermo! I’m pretty sure you said on many occasions that Dallas is no way a premier league player and should be in championship with his mate Cooper?
Are you admitting you were wrong on this as well as being wrong on Bielsa, Rad, Harrison and probably many more? MOT.
I won’t mention you know who and would be most grateful if you were to refrain from doing so as well.
