I'm not having a pop at anyone who slaughtered certain Leeds players in the last year or two. But name me any player now who hasn't earned is salt. MB imo has improved every single player. Some might mention Beradi as a liability but to me he's always done a good job when called upon. Bamford Klich Hernandez Harrison Alioski Cooper Ayling and the always injured Foreshaw have all improved massively working for Bielsa.
Can't wait for next season.

Eunan O'Kane.


2.) 11 Dec 2019 23:24:17
Eunan started really well when he first joined.
Yes, he became really poor due to a confidence slump and was subsequently loaned out, where he suffered an utterly atrocious, career threatening injury, from which he has still not recovered.
I feel for the lad. He may have lost his livelihood.


3.) 12 Dec 2019 00:39:39
To qualify as a Leeds player surely he has to play :)


4.) 12 Dec 2019 02:08:03
Brighty No sympathy from George. He was more interested by his humanist wife and bizarrely headbutting the opposition. Lack of focus cost him. Meanwhile, I must confess since Bielsa made the modifications to our play, I absolutely insist his contract of employment is extended. He's great.


5.) 12 Dec 2019 11:08:58
Talk about being fickle😜.


6.) 12 Dec 2019 11:51:17
Individual performances have improved. My own personal issue has been about the persistent injuries that have blighted our squad. It is difficult to wax lyrical about Forshaw and Roberts, who bring quality to the team, when they struggle to kick a ball for a third of the season. A couple more players need to be brought in during the window to help the group.


7.) 12 Dec 2019 14:27:42
Notts It is no coincidence that individual performances improved exact same time as Bielsa made modifications to our play. He finally gets it and he's even utilizing the squad a bit more.


8.) 12 Dec 2019 16:32:01
Fair points both of those George. He is showing flexibility around team selection, and tactics, and it’s working a treat!

Bamford reminds me in a way of Alan Smith. And I'm pretty sure some will mention his goal record as the similarity. But to me it's his overall team play. Works extremely hard, runs the channels, links up the play and seems to love putting on the White shirt.
When my phone beeped on Saturday that a goal was scored for Leeds I literally waited and hoped it was Paddy.

Corky. I had great confidence in bam bam to score on Saturday. I was at the game and put £20 on pat to score 1st goal and us to be winning half time full time. So win £120 on my trip over. Saying that, I spent a great deal
More in the city eating out and drinking a fare share off pints. Had a great week end and hoping too get over again for the Huddersfield game. Would take another 4-0 win. ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️👍👍.


2.) 03 Dec 2019 11:28:33
Nice to click a bet when at a match as it is expensive traveling over taking everything in to account. A win makes it all worth while🍺.


 

 

01 Dec 2019 20:11:41
Just wondering. Come Christmas will MB still play an unchanged team? 4 games in probably 9 or 10 days. I'm not one to question Bielsa but surely he can't do it? Or can he?

Corkwhite2

1.) 01 Dec 2019 20:44:19
Cork The pragmatic modifications he's made to our game especially discernible at home means I think he's learned a thing or two. Hopefully, he'll squad rotate. There's still Davis, Struick and Douglas to use in defence along with Gotts, Alfie, Bogusz and Stevens in midfield. Don't think any of those players would let side down. Squad rotation is a good thing because it allows the regulars a breather and if someone comes in and plays a Peaky then there's a very useful selection dilemma for the next match. I see all 4 of the midfielders mentioned as being able to create such a dilemma. Future is bright, about to get brighter.

Anyone see Forest as a dark horse? Right up there and well organised even though they were average at best against us early season:.

Corkwhite2

1.) 27 Nov 2019 21:06:14
PNE are the darkies.


2.) 27 Nov 2019 21:54:34
The Hull they are George! 😂😂.


3.) 27 Nov 2019 21:58:11
I disagree George. As has been shown tonight, Hull are dark horses and PNE flatter to deceive. That there Bowen kid is bloody good.


4.) 27 Nov 2019 22:07:14
Danum LOL 😂
Tory Now they're just very dark.


5.) 27 Nov 2019 22:08:12
Tory Bowen is the player for us. Knew it ages ago. I want him.


6.) 27 Nov 2019 22:09:23
Agree with you about Forest.


7.) 27 Nov 2019 22:11:17
i hope not, i am mates with their ex chairmans daughter and couldn't cope with them getting promoted i wouldn't hear the end of it, think i'd be better off with millwall going up.


8.) 27 Nov 2019 22:20:46
When I called forest one of the better teams Chris chris shot me down saying his sides were splitting with that comment.


9.) 27 Nov 2019 22:21:54
Tonights result is why they are dark horses. Nobody expects them to be up there now.


10.) 27 Nov 2019 22:33:33
I see forest. Not Preston.
Gonna be a tight top 4. Cannot slip up on the should wins.


11.) 27 Nov 2019 22:44:17
Georgie, I have been with you all along on Bowen. Sadly, this is now so late in the day that we could not afford him. His conversion rate mocks ours.


12.) 27 Nov 2019 23:58:23
Yeah right Georgey . your 'darkies' PNE are getting thrashed 4 nil by the mighty Hull.


13.) 28 Nov 2019 08:15:17
Forest have spent a lot of money last two seasons, using the same agent wolves use

Not surprised they are up there this year.


 

 

24 Nov 2019 19:38:35
Anyone else thinking that maybe the 15 mill soon to be spent on Costa should of been used on Ben White?
I'm pretty sure the 15 could of got him at the time or fairly close. In fact I'm dead certain Brighton would have snapped our hands off!

Corkwhite2

1.) 24 Nov 2019 20:55:36
Ahhhhh the benefit of hindsight corky
I’m not sure we knew how good he was going to be this season! Also don’t think Brighton wanted to sell him last summer! Would be great if we could find a way to keep him! I think he is going to be some player!


2.) 25 Nov 2019 01:44:04
Cork You friends with the Seagulls Board of directors? Think you're wrong. FFP means we couldn't buy until the summer anyway. I think we can get White in the summer but will take £35m to £40m cash up front to do so. QSI and promotion means it's possible.


3.) 25 Nov 2019 07:30:37
Only way we will buy him is as George says we get promoted. Can not see him in the championship next season, think Brighton may try and hang on to him for next season then sell. promotion would give us a chance.


4.) 25 Nov 2019 08:38:38
I said soon to be spent George. Loan to buy mate it’s not that complicated.


5.) 25 Nov 2019 09:32:48
They wouldn’t put the loan to buy agreement in place cork, it was one of the stipulations Brighton set.


6.) 25 Nov 2019 10:51:01
Cork incredibly unlikely Brighton would let White go, if they did it would take a Harry Maguire like bid.

Whilst Brighton have more centre backs than we’ve missed chances this year, they have zero debt a billionaire owner in Tony Bloom so it would take a ridiculous offer. The minimum being what George previously quoted. The one thing that may change the situation is if we were to be promoted and Brighton relegated. Talking to season ticket holders, they’re not that keen on Potter as Manager and despite buying Maupay struggle to score enough goals 60/ 40 them being dragged into relegation this year.

That being said Nathan Jones who brought White through at Brighton said he was the best prospect they had ever had at the club, so still wishful thinking I fear.


7.) 25 Nov 2019 10:53:27
Didn’t realize they Martyn. So Leeds did actually try and buy Ben White? It’s a shame we couldn’t get a deal done as I’d imagine his value has at least tripled with his performances for Leeds.


8.) 25 Nov 2019 13:39:21
Cork we tried to agree a loan to buy but Brighton weren’t having it.

Bielsa the lad has no loyalty to Leeds so I don’t get what you’re saying.
As for Edmonson you know your stuff so I hope you are right.

He looks like he could be the best of a good bunch coming through. Tidy on the ball, fast and knows how to defend.

I see where you’re coming from Axe but do these kind of players exist anymore? Likes of John Charles and Hunter are like the dinosaurs mate.,

Notts why do you blame the coach? Personally I believe it was defensive mistakes which cost us and not MB.

I have a feeling MB did prepare for Cardiff and their style of play. Is he not known for meticulous planning? Oh well we have to blame someone so Marcelo today it’s your turn!
