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.

Ok George just saw the rumours page!




11 Dec 2018 20:39:53
Anyone back Leeds for the title or promotion? I backed us a few times ranging from 7s to 14/ 1. Obviously it would be nice to collect but the cash return would be just a bonus. It's been too long.


1.) 11 Dec 2018 21:16:20
I normally do, but didn't get around to it this year. which means we're going up.

2.) 12 Dec 2018 07:48:31
Always have a tenner on automatic and playoffs. Also had Bamford for top scorer so he needs to get his boots on.

3.) 12 Dec 2018 10:17:18
Got a treble
Leeds promotion
Portsmouth promotion
Southampton relegated.

4.) 12 Dec 2018 10:48:10
i got roofe as top scorer but first year in ages (apart from year hock was manager) i ain't done us to go up so think we will go up this year!

i have won money on wood and moccormack in past but not collected on the big one!

5.) 12 Dec 2018 11:46:26
Looking good yebo.

6.) 12 Dec 2018 13:45:48
Is that the sound of Bermondsey finally changing his mind!

7.) 12 Dec 2018 16:38:04
Spanish - I assume Bermo means KP will be dropped, THEN we will go up.

8.) 12 Dec 2018 22:46:11
Thanks for the translation Alf!

Jack, a handsome man, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 pm. He sat down next to this blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV as the 10:00 news came on. The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building preparing to jump.

The blonde looked at Jack and said, "Do you think he'll jump? "

Jack says, "You know what, I bet he will. " The blonde replied, "Well, I bet he won't. " Jack placed $30 on the bar and said, "You're on! "

Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building, falling to his death. The blonde was very upset and handed her $30 to Jack, saying, "Fair's fair. Here's your money. "

Jack replied, "I can't take your money, I saw this earlier on the 5 o'clock news and knew he would jump. "

The blonde replies, "I did too; but I didn't think he'd do it again. "

Jack took the money.

A Scottish couple took in an 18-year-old girl as a lodger.
She asked if she could have a bath, but the woman of the house told her they didn't have a bath, although if she wanted to, she could use a tin bath in front of the fire.
"Monday's the best night, when my husband goes out to darts, " she said.
The girl agreed to have a bath the following Monday.
After her husband had gone to the pub for his darts match, the woman filled the bath and watched the girl get undressed.
She was surprised to see that the lass didn't have any pubic hair.
She mentioned this to her husband when he came home.
He didn't believe her, so she said: "Next Monday, when you go to darts, leave a little early and wait in the back garden.
I'll leave a gap in the curtains so you can see for yourself. "
So the following Monday, while the girl again got undressed, the wife asked: "Do you shave? " "No, " replied the girl. "I've just never grown any hair down there. Do you have hair? "
"Oh, yes, " said the woman, and she pulled up her nightdress and showed the girl that she was really generously endowed in the hair department.
The girl finished her bath and went to bed.
Later that night, when the husband came in, the wife asked him, "Did you see it? " "Yes, " he said, "but why the hell did you have to show her yours. "
"Why ever are you worried about that? " she said. "You've seen it often enough before. "
"I know, " he said. "but the f*ckin darts team hadn't!

Sol Bamba. Anyone surprised by how well his career has kicked on since leaving Leeds? He looked unbelievable when he first joined us but soon after the errors crept in.


1.) 04 Dec 2018 21:15:05
he did dip in form but not in the strongest team in his defence. he was a god at first i am pleased for him same with warnock i like him, he never had a chance at leeds with way the squad and money was. he did amazing to keep us up.

2.) 05 Dec 2018 09:23:34
Good championship player. Did play in a poor Leeds defense but do not rate him as anything special.

3.) 05 Dec 2018 11:11:21
It’s only my opinion bw but how anybody can use the words warnock and like in the same century let alone sentence is beyond me. I’m not going to justify the animal with anymore of my time.
It seems we differ on Bamford too!

4.) 05 Dec 2018 12:39:56
I like Warnock also - he would have got us up if he wasn't shafted by Bates who just broke all of his promises. You don't get a record number of promotions by being terrible. So he rubbed a few people up the wrong way (mainly when his team were beaten by a Warnock side) - even Jesus Christ wasn't liked by everybody.

5.) 05 Dec 2018 13:16:37
That disappoints me Alf. Was considering you for my 3rd place poster this season until that post.
George. your now in 3rd mate. Keep up the good work Georgy.

6.) 05 Dec 2018 16:37:37
agree alf you don't have warnock's cv by being poor, even in prem league he was unlucky, getting cardiff to prem was nothing short of amazing and up there with lesticer winning prem league

aus anyone who backs george as a good poster says it all for me, seems your judgement is questionable from posting to managers. while on it how about bamford. best in league for me!

Good player he is I've never really trusted the man.
He’s always banged on about how much he loves Leeds but I reckon he’d be gone in a shot if offered higher level football and pay rise. Then again I might be wrong?

Ignore the “what” post mate. Welcome to this thing. You might just be the the messiah from down under and give us all some sensible and insightful posts. Unlike any bald.

Bige we had no scouting system when cellino was here. At least now we are looking to snap up young players who are hungry to join Leeds and do well.
