Guess you'll all have seen the rumour that Corberan may be looking at taking Gotts on loan for the dog botherers. Obviously it goes against better instinct to help that lot too much, and doubtless their fans wouldn't be too chuffed with any suggestions that they were becoming our unofficial B team. However, it might make sense for both clubs for several of our second string to spend a season there.

On the other hand, now we have Category One status our reserves will mainly be up against players mainly from the Prem. Is it better for players like Gotts McCalmont, Miazek (? ) , Edmondson to get real competitive games or more skilful players in less meaningful games?


1.) 30 Jul 2020 11:19:06
I think one or two will end up on loan there, which would be good for them!


 

 

05 Feb 2020 22:36:45
Am I the only one that's thinking we ought to be talking to James Milner asap about coming in next season on a player/ coach basis, regardless of which division we are in. With his attendance of last night's game at Anfield, and inspirational talk in dressing room etc, it would seem obvious that he would be interested in working on the coaching side sooner or later. Clearly he's hoping to continue playing next season ND perhaps offering him the first steps in coaching too might help convince him that next season is the time to rejoin us.


1.) 05 Feb 2020 23:45:30
I would have thought that, if he is still here next season, Bielsa would welcome Milner as both player and nascent coach, and there can't be many managers out there who wouldn't see him as a great addition, with his incredible fitness levels, professionalism and versatility. Younger players would surely be inspired by playing with and learning from a recent winner of the Champions League and (probably also the Premier League) .


2.) 06 Feb 2020 09:36:55
100% agreed pal! The lad is a model pro, and as he is Leeds born, would be an amazing addition to both the playing, and coaching side of the club. Now is the time to make moves!


3.) 06 Feb 2020 10:47:38
He would love to come back. It would make sense financially. He could live back at home and nip home for lunch and let the dog out. What's not to like.


4.) 06 Feb 2020 22:11:46
Maybe the dog could get a game?


5.) 08 Feb 2020 12:55:45
Thought the dog was already under contract with the Terriers.


6.) 09 Feb 2020 11:43:56
what a bunch of weak willed individuals we have in this team, a frail and crumbling team, brentford are going to toast us on tuesday. we will soon be outside the top 6. no doubt about it.


 

 

16 Dec 2019 18:08:35
I'm guessing the rumour about Andre Ayew if guff, with someone putting two and two together and making 22.


1.) 17 Dec 2019 00:29:17
Hope so.


2.) 19 Dec 2019 17:09:11
I dismissed it as just talk because he’ll be on premiership wages.


 

 

30 Jul 2019 14:57:51
Anyone heard anything by way of confirmation on Shack's possible thigh injury, or on why Edmondson did not feature against Girona at 4th e weekend?


1.) 30 Jul 2019 18:50:31
Also some news on Ayling and Roberts?


2.) 31 Jul 2019 14:00:51
ayling + tyler out along obviously bwith kemar + the hatchet man suspended, lots of activity in BC squad this summer i think, vut hopefully we will rinse them, we need to hit ground running and build morale by winning games whilst hopefully playing attractive football.


 

 

26 Jul 2019 22:38:33
Seen some suggestion of twitter rumours that our new away kit is grey with a pink trim. This seems a little unlikely given that this season's training kit is grey. If someone has seen such a kit, it would seem possible iis the a version of the training kit designed for out ladies team.


1.) 28 Jul 2019 14:37:01
Surely if it is grey the trim would be yellow?
And don't forget it's not grey it's PLATINUM! 😂😂.

Which other Prem club has fans who will persuade the local mayor to light up Niagara Falls in their team colours, or indeed one of Brisbane's bridges.

Clueless, I've just watched the vid to that and posted a picture of it, I posted a picture of the Australian one a while back, it's still on the sightings page.


2.) 26 Aug 2020 16:14:35
Yeah I saw it on BBC news website

Absolutely Awesome Sight Bravo that Canadian Leeds United fan.

Know one of the the lads that did brought up in same village played football with him.


 

 

17 Aug 2020 12:57:15
Benrahma is a decent footballer, but having seen the holiday video he's posted, he ain't Leeds or Bielsa. Looks too high maintenance - would need to do at least a week of litter picking to sort his head out.


1.) 17 Aug 2020 18:17:06
Benrahma is a really good player with great stats .

I think Bielsa would like Leeds to sign him but predict he will not be signing for Leeds.

Never heard of any disciplinary issues with him at Brentford.


2.) 17 Aug 2020 22:56:31
Not suggesting there's any disciplinary issues, but would clearly need a serious dose of perspective and humility before kicking a ball with Leeds, even at Thorp Arch.


3.) 18 Aug 2020 00:55:43
The games I watched him play, looks a very tricky player, goes out wide gets the ball and takes on players, he did score 17 in champ.
Him out wide and quality forward like Batshuayi or Cabral would improve us in the converting department.


 

 

05 Aug 2020 23:42:55
Anyone else think that Loris Karius could be worth considering. I really feel he was hung out to dry over the 'mistakes ' in the CL final. These keep on being brought up and no-one seems to consider that that thug Ramos had elbowed him in the head (completely missed by the officials) . Seems deeply unfair that Karius' career continues to blighted by that game while Ramos continues to be lauded almost universally - despite his assaults on both Karius and Salah in that game - and numerous similar incidents throughout his career. Yes here were early concerns over Karius' focus during games, but he seemed to have got over that issue prior to that game, and the two 'mistakes' were entirely consistent with the concussion he was later shown to have suffered due to the deliberate elbow from Ramos - so should be seen as such, crather than a return to issue of concentration. What the guy needs is a manager who believes in him and will enable him to show his undoubted abilities.


1.) 06 Aug 2020 00:50:29
Agree that no one should be written off for one bad game particularly if there were reasonable excuses but the mistakes have continued at Besiktas and mixed reports as to why he/ they terminated his loan with them.
Whilst he's back at Liverpool it's no secret they don't want him. We already have a keeper in Meslier who looks far more consistent and reliable, I'd rather an experienced competitor for him such as Romero from you know where.


2.) 06 Aug 2020 10:24:55
Put the cra-ck pipe down clueless, he should have retired immediately after that game .

It would be a Insult to meslier to even have karius in a matchday squad

Karius was at it again in turkey last season conceding howlers, terrible keeper.


 

 

04 Aug 2020 16:18:46
It's quite sad seeing Roofe retiring from professional football at such a relatively young age.


1.) 04 Aug 2020 16:57:48
I think he will score a lot of goals in Scotland.


2.) 04 Aug 2020 17:23:18
verygood post really made me chuckle

and of course he will score a lot of goals in scotland my nan could score a lot of goals in scotland.


3.) 04 Aug 2020 18:28:00
Ignorance is bliss, he's coming to a club who are playing in the last 16 of the europa this week, in fairness, the scottish league isn't the greatest, but both Rangers and Celtic are far bigger clubs than Leeds. Anyway good luck in the premiership, always had a soft spot for Leeds, hopefully get back to the team you should be.


4.) 04 Aug 2020 19:46:06
How the eff are rangers bigger than Leeds?


5.) 04 Aug 2020 19:59:59
Negri absolute deluded bs nonsense 🤣😉with your deluded comment that Glasgow Rangers is a 'FAR' bigger club than Leeds . Rangers are arguably not even bigger than Leeds let alone far bigger . perhaps now you can toddle off back to your Land of Delusion 😁😉🤣.


6.) 04 Aug 2020 20:06:26
Oh yeah Negri your other laughable bs deluded nonsense comment ' in fairness the Scottish league isn't tne greatest 😁🤣😉'

No kidding MCSherlock! Too right it isn't. it's actually Mickey mouse garbage standard tbe worst in Europe 👍🤣.


7.) 04 Aug 2020 20:37:11
hahaha, you've been in the championship for over 15 years playing teams like Rotherham! absolute ignorance. Rangers and Celtic are a bigger club than Leeds, that's a fact, have a word with yourself.


8.) 04 Aug 2020 20:58:14
Ha o McDeluded Negri not at all
And the problem even for ' Champion 'Celtic's credibility is the really piss poor standard of the Scottish leagues for decades

Apart from Celtic the vast majority of Championship clubs are of a better standard than all other Scottish clubs . including your beloved third rate Glasgow Rangers 😉😁.


9.) 04 Aug 2020 21:18:22
Negri, we may have been playing teams like Rotherham for the last 15 years or so, but Rangers have been playing teams like Hamilton Academicals forever! 😂😂.


10.) 04 Aug 2020 21:18:34
I agree, Rangers still need to catch celtic, but its closer than ever, we suffered a financial issue the same as leeds, didn't take us 16 years to get back to where we belong though! If Rangers and celtic played in England and gained from the finances that go through the EPL we would be top 6 every year, you have no chance of even staying up without a great deal of investment. I think you are on another planet to think that Leeds, after playing in the championship for so long are even on par with any of the old firm. the delusion is on your side viduka. at least Roofe will get a chance to play in Europe. pretty sure he was one of, if not, the best player in your team, 2 seasons ago?


11.) 04 Aug 2020 21:44:01
It's a laugh sparring with you O Deluded McNegri I think deep down you know that Scottish football is laughably bad 😉😁🤣

And as Danum says the 'mighty' Rangers have been playing tbe likes of Hamilton Accies for ever . that is your and Celtic's level of competition and standard . enough said 😉👍.


12.) 04 Aug 2020 22:25:50
Wasnt Roofe playing in Europe last season, and he wasnt mich kop 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣.


13.) 04 Aug 2020 22:41:37
Negri Celtic and Rangers are bigger but not far bigger. That's a ridiculously untrue statement.


14.) 04 Aug 2020 22:51:49
Agree,

He will be playing for the second best team in a two-club league. You cannot fault his ambition. What's more, when he is injured, all his prescriptions will be free of charge!


15.) 05 Aug 2020 16:16:13
sorry, just realised i was wrong,
said you had been in the championship for 15 years, just remembered you were actually in league 1 for 2 or 3 of them!

that aside, I will admit, maybe not far bigger, but definitely bigger.


16.) 05 Aug 2020 17:11:35
he's came to a club where he has the chance to play against bayer leverkusen in the last 16 tomorrow, not quite hamilton or rotherham are they? sure he'll enjoy a good run in europe.

{Ed007's Note - Roofe isn't allowed to play tomorrow night, only players previously registered are eligible.}


 

 

03 Aug 2020 00:33:37
I see Fat Frank is trying to get some excuses in early. But presumably Chelsea agreed to the Prem start date, so a bit late to be bellyaching now, and it's not like Chelsea are going to be overturning a 3-0 defecit against Bayern anyway.

If we can manage to win the next four AND KP is able to avoid a further 3 yellow cards in those fixtures, we could go into the tough games v Baadiff and Fulham quite handily placed for the final straight.

Fulham have an incredibly tough run-in. 8 of their last 12 games are against teams ranked above the 12th placed Tups, with whom they've drawn tonight - and only 1 is against a team in the bottom 8.

After QPR tomorrow, the florists remaining fixtures include 4 of the bottom 8, but the rest are in the top 13.

Brentford have 5 of the bottom 8 to face but also 6 in the top half of the table.

We are yet to face 7 of the bottom 8 and 5 in the top half.

For his effrontery of speaking truth to power in that way, I'm surprised the FA didn't ban Victor from all football related activities 'til the end of the season. Surely we should be grateful for even being allowed to play football anymore and realise it's not our place to be ask to be treated in the same way as other clubs.

Chris - Bielsa didn't say who would fill in for White. But Berardi missed the last game through injury and Bielsa said two had returned from injury and we're now available - Shack and Tyro.
May mean Ayling will be shifted inside with the Cookstown Cafu slotting in at RB. As that solution would involve players Bielsa fully trusts, it might be more likely than bringing in Olly Casey (or even less likely Struijk) at CB, which he would presumably see as a bigger risk. Though of course Casey did play for the last 18 minutes of the game with t'dog botherers, when White previously covered for KP.

He would seem to be 1.77m in height - only 1cm shorter than Roofe. So we'd be not much different to last year's set-up for strikers if he comes in. Incidentally Eddie was around the same height too - though of course J-KA has a much higher level of experience than either of the previous two.

Berm - you often make persuasive verbal arguments, as befits a wordsmith of your calibre. However, sorry to say, numbers and number-based facts are not among your strongest suits.

Two of the ‘facts’ you present are indeed correct. We are the worst (by a significant margin) in terms of goals conceded at set plays, and yes we have a negative goal difference. Generally speaking, it is likely that around half of the teams in any league will have a negative goal difference. However your other ‘facts’ are not supported by reality.

I think we would all agree that we have conceded more goals than we should, and that that needs to be addressed, but four other teams (Newcastle, Southampton, Baggies and Blades) have actually conceded more, and Palace, managed by defensively minded Roy, have conceded the same as us.

Fulham have actually lost the same number of games as we have - 14 each.

We are actually joint 4th best in the league (with Liverpool and in terms of points gained from a losing position - having gained 10 points from three wins and 1 draw. Only Man Utd and Leicester have gained more wins from a losing position.

OP - as I said in a reply further down, yet to be posted by Eds I think, coaching/ management is the next logical step for Sharp, as he already owns and runs a football academy locally. And wher better than the team he supported as a kid. As I also said lower down, it’s quite possible that Colin might fancy a last hurrah at his own boyhood team, have previously got then promoted to the Premier in 2006, and taking Sharp into his coaching/ management team with a view to mentoring him to take on the top job in due course. Sharp played under Colin from 2004, so there may already be quite a bond there.

Berm - to look at it another way, despite our lack of a settled back 4, injuries, very young and inexperienced keeper etc, we have kept 8 cleans sheets so far this season. That puts us joint 11th. Teams we have managed to shut out on one occasion include, Blunts, Baggies, Burnley, Villa, Palace and Everton, all of which are a threat at set pieces. Only 5 teams have kept 10 or more cleanies: Citeh, Scum, Dean Smith’s lot, Chelski and Hammers.

Then perhaps we could look at Allardyce, who is apparently a defensive genius who some, including yourself possibly, have previously said would be able to sort out our frailties at the back. In the 15 matches since he took the managerial reins at the Baggies, they have had 3 cleanies. Surely even the most ardent Allardyce disciple would admit that their man is a deeply inferior managerial fit for Leeds than Bielsa is.

Berm, and fellow pessimists, surely you must concede that Bielsa has not been able to select a settled back four and DM all season, and he probably has not been able to pick his preferred line up at all so far.

Bielsa does of course have his faults, so do all managers, including the likes of Klopp and Pep, but he has stated that he recognises there is a problem with set pieces and will continue to work on identifying solutions, be that in personnel or tactics.

Llorente and Koch are new to the club and have had injuries, and are obviously going to take a while to bed into Bielsaball etc and this is Struijk’s first season as a member of the first team squad. Have patience for f@cks sake, and don’t try to draw conclusions before you even have any solid facts to work with.
