Geldhart finally signs.
Pretty pleased with this one, was impressed with him this season and think once he gets Bielsa fit he could become a decent player for us.


1.) 10 Aug 2020 21:13:01
Agreed and good to get him in for pre season training. Until anyone else arrives he has a real opportunity to impress, hope he takes it.

2.) 10 Aug 2020 22:11:04
Not sure he will be a first team we this season but good to see us snapping up a promising player. Makes a change from when it was always us on the end of such transfers.

3.) 10 Aug 2020 23:07:56
Aiming high as usual.

I think this lad is a bit different than some of the youngsters we’ve brought in before. He was being talked about in the 5 million class before their financial troubles. It’s not about age with these kids it’s about how good they really are, if they have the potential to do really really well then they can do start to do it at a young age. Ditto Charlie Allen from Linfield only 16. If we can start to see some home nurtured strikers coming through it will be great.

It was interesting during the lockdown when there was no under 23 football, the focus of the under 23s was only on supporting the first team with training, squad and bench if required. That period brought Shackleton, Poveda and Struick back firmly into the reckoning. If you read Bamford on Struick, during lockdown Struick was tried as defensive midfield during murder ball and absolutely nailed it. After that the thought of using him and not White grew.

With a premier league 2 programme that level of youth involvement in the first team is harder, but I’m sure that the kids Bielsa really rates and would call on if needed will be the ones filling out the squad numbers, helping out in training sessions and balancing those duties with the under 23s. In that respect who gets the link job between under 23s and first team is important.

Top post Spaniard. Glad you’re back full time pal!

6.) 11 Aug 2020 12:37:53
What Spanish said

We’ve a coach and staff committed to identifying and developing our own players to play in our own style

Players develop differently and at different rates so it’s a numbers game and not all make it to the first team

Those that don’t will still be very good players and will generate income when sold

This is a “ go to “ club again

No more journeymen winding down careers.

7.) 11 Aug 2020 14:06:03
Agree Woody and being very professional about how we are bringing people in and signing new contracts for those we want to keep. We are still not getting all the new signings right but then not sure anyone does that all the time. Look at Chelsea and the worlds most expensive goalie and now tipped to buy a goalie!

8.) 11 Aug 2020 14:16:31
Bogusz signs 3 year deal

Looks like we are progressing nicely.



05 Oct 2019 22:50:45
What is Bielsa talking about when he mentions the 3 big parts of the game? Something about Harrison.


{Ed033's Note - Meat and potatoes?

1.) 06 Oct 2019 10:53:55
Canada Venture it's possession, creating chances and sticking them away. Personally, I think he's lost the plot, anxiety has crept in and he's a ripe candidate to enter Martyn's Bexley wing once the Big Fella returns from Lanzagrotty with new Spanish girlfriend in tow.

2.) 06 Oct 2019 11:50:35
Doesn't seem to fit with him talking about red card and penalty. I was assuming it was some refereeing error or something controversial.
I think he's been a breath of fresh air to Leeds but my lord he can't seem to see the wood for the trees can he!
For such a studier of the game I'm shocked he can't understand our repeated failures. Maybe he should watch all of our games from last year again and then it may sink in.

3.) 06 Oct 2019 16:04:51
He turned down a blatant penalty when Harrison had his ankles swept away for him, and waved it away. Just another shocking decision.
So, the 3 big parts were their penalty, Berra’s Red, and the refusal to award our penalty. That’s my take on it anyway.

4.) 06 Oct 2019 17:19:53
Sounds about right.
Really sick of being screwed by refs.
We are more than capable of messing it up on our own!

5.) 07 Oct 2019 06:25:16
No one wants us out of this league we generate too much revenue for the greedy corrupt fatherless children.

6.) 07 Oct 2019 17:09:19
I don't think Bielsa has lost the plot at all. He is a genius and getting 50% more out of the current squad than any other manager would be able to. Problem is most of our players are not up to it.

7.) 09 Oct 2019 16:01:14
You legend alftupper! Post of the month!



12 Jul 2017 01:03:47
Have I missed something? Saiz flew in yesterday and was having a medical this morning and no announcement on him signing. Ekuban can fly in, have a medical and sign in a matter of hours. Is Saiz signed up or is there a delay due to a medical issue?


1.) 12 Jul 2017 07:51:06
If alioski signs, surely the 1.6 we spent on sacko would have been better spent elsewhere (towards a cb ? ) . Which players are going to be surplus now, will Dallas, o Kane
Bridcutt, Phillips all still be in the new managers plans, I presume viera will be and the new pole. if siaz signs and Proves to be a success then Pablo could be a great sub to have at times for last 20 in games. anyone actually seen this alioski play (other than u tube clips? )

2.) 12 Jul 2017 09:51:26
I guess these players won't be surplus but having competition for places should certainly make last years players up their game. Which is surely a good thing right?

3.) 12 Jul 2017 10:53:03
Ongoing complications with Athletico rights I'd assume. Saiz isn't being signed from one club, he's being signed from two.

4.) 12 Jul 2017 12:19:40
Can't be that as the deal is done subject to a medical. Hopefully it all goes through as we need the creativity this guy can bring.

5.) 12 Jul 2017 12:45:41
Terms agreed subject to medical but you still have to get all three sets of lawyers to sign paperwork and money to move around.

6.) 12 Jul 2017 13:00:39
I heard he started his medical yesterday evening, probably to be completed this morning. Expect an announcement later today, at a guess.

7.) 12 Jul 2017 13:15:17
Good news Bright. Hope this one goes through.

8.) 13 Jul 2017 14:15:45
Radz has signed the targets so far that we have been trying to get. Gone about it with a patient methodical approach. Time for the doubters to start believing that we are trying to build a good solid squad that will be capable of challenging for promotion. Still think there will be more to come. Reply optimistic for the coming season. MOT.

Damn Brentford, don't they realise a good number of us can't drink 2 days running anymore. Way too old for that, but I guess I'll just have to suffer.


1.) 18 Jul 2020 17:53:10
Don't think the drinking will stop now until prem restarts.



18 Jul 2020 12:45:08
Had a couple last night like many here.
Now up and ready for more football.
Interested how Stoke Bees game goes, wonder how mental dynamic will have changed for Brentford as really no longer chasing.
If they do slip up today could be the one.


1.) 18 Jul 2020 13:24:38
Said a couple of weeks ago, it's easier to chase. Once you need to win, the pressure turns up.



09 Jul 2020 17:46:26
Shocker, look what happens you take a player on in the box.
Was sick of saying it Haha.


1.) 09 Jul 2020 18:01:51
Stoke going to have to attack now rather than sit back. Hopefully open the game up in our favour fingers crossed. Have us playing silly balls across our own box though. Not many finger nails left!



27 Jun 2020 16:00:21
I am getting so sick of Klich jumping into people and giving away stupid free kicks.
Also he never tries to win a header just barges into players.
Have a go at winning the ball then I don't if you mess it up and give away a free kick.


1.) 27 Jun 2020 16:32:40
Got no finger nails left, why can’t they hold the all up not give it way we are making it hard work.

2.) 27 Jun 2020 19:35:05
Ah but Canada, his little push into knockaert that meant he nudged the Ref. That got him booked and saw him off as a threat

Small margins
He’s a street fighter is klich.

3.) 27 Jun 2020 21:17:59
Klich is the king of sh1thousery! Although Coops head butting mitrovic in his armpit was class too!



21 Jun 2020 15:49:40
Despite today's result being disappointing we are actually in a better position than we were a week ago.

The gap hasn't changed and there's 1 game less now for teams to catch us up with.
It does make next weeks game more important. Let's all hope Pablo is back for then as we do so much better when he plays.

Robert's to me was one of the better players but I'd want to have him available to replace Bamford with 30 to go as it seems JKA won't be doing!


1.) 21 Jun 2020 16:52:45
Roberts had plenty of the ball but was wasteful in possession.

2.) 21 Jun 2020 17:15:21
Yes I agree Notts of all the opportunities he has had to cement a place he hasn't impressed and certainly did not today.

3.) 21 Jun 2020 17:21:32
Roberts did nowt today. He will come good tho, I’m sure of that.

4.) 21 Jun 2020 18:53:09
good point one less game to be caught. that has cheered me up

funny roberts seems to devide. I rate him and thought he was our best player today. that said I can see why people think the other way about him.

5.) 21 Jun 2020 20:44:08
Nobody stood out today which was the issue but to me he was better than most.
Need Pablo back ASAP.

Same gamble as we took before he'd played a championship game.
Could easily say there's a good chance he'll be brilliant. Only time will tell.

Not ideal, but if get three years out of him at the standard of 35yr old Pablo I'd be happy.

Thought that kid looked good against us. Certainly one for the future, wonder if he can even do a job now?

Reserve team premier league player Vs someone whose highest level was league 1 before Bielsa coached him.
What worries me is this, is Bielsa signature dependent on us securing White?

I must have missed that one, not surprising with 5 new linked players a day!

Totally agreed, should be able to get a prem standard defender and have 10 mill to put towards a striker or #10.
Yes Ben knows Bielsas ways but he did from the start of last season with just a pre-season (he was just about the only one who hasn't had 2 seasons now) so Bielsa can get a new person up to speed if we buy the right person this week.

Would they need to quarantine with all the testing they do?
Would assume all would get tested and then just wait for result.

Could also see Geld developing into a 10.
