Leeds fans have been screaming the need for another CB at Radz since Janson sold.

I'm trying to remain optimistic there is a twist in the remaining days of the transfer window for us to strengthen with experience to support younger players stepping up, and not rely on deadwood cloggers.

I know many may think Dallas needs replacing but let's not forget what a useful utility player he is, IMO he was our stand out player in second leg playoff last season.

Onwards and upwards.


1.) 27 Jul 2019 16:15:10
Dallas did do well in that second leg, but he has been here long enough to force his way in as a regular, but he has failed to do so despite chance after chance. Decent squad man, but that's all for me.

2.) 29 Jul 2019 18:20:41
He’s moved about that much it would be hard to be a regular in a regular position. He’s happy too play where he is put and he benefits the team. And gives 100% always.



16 Jul 2019 13:23:05
Read a news feed linking us to ongoing discussions with Gary Cahill. Probably media Trollope as usual.

Can't deny would be very happy if it was true and could forgive his chelski past should he sign for Leeds.




30 Jun 2019 15:36:12
It sounds like there are some positive moves about transfers for us this next week.
Does anyone know if there is any mileage in the Luke Freeman rumour that we are hoping to bring him in. I hope there is.

Onwards and upwards.


1.) 30 Jun 2019 23:22:47
Good player but I sense not for us.

2.) 01 Jul 2019 08:43:31
We're not currently making any moves for Freeman.

3.) 01 Jul 2019 21:10:08
Shame about that alftupper!

Something gone down with Leeds United shares as received email this afternoon from company check updates about Leeds United. It refers to shares but Doesn't allow me access to further information.


1.) 09 Jun 2019 22:49:38
Just checked company's house website for Leeds United and there is a lot of things relating to shares but I don't understand what it means, something about radz and 75%.

2.) 09 Jun 2019 22:58:13
What does that mean?

3.) 09 Jun 2019 23:43:18
Looking at the docs you seem to be referring to, while they were apparently filed with companies house, or uploaded to its website recently, they seem to date from last year, so possibly nothing to be excited about.

4.) 10 Jun 2019 07:52:27
Yeah, reading through this morning I think the relate to the 49ers buying 25% for 11million. So nothing new.

5.) 10 Jun 2019 08:25:37
This is all the paperwork related to the 49ers investment last year. Nothing in itself to be excited about, unless it has been prompted by them doing some preparations for other share issues/ sales during/ in advance of due diligence.

Bielsa signs contract for a further season, BRILL!

Well done Radz for getting this quickly dealt with 😀👍.


1.) 28 May 2019 12:35:56
I love a bit of continuity good news in my opinion mot.

2.) 28 May 2019 12:48:15
It's a decent sign, Bielsa has a history of leaving if he doesn't get what he feels he needs. Radz must have given him certain assurances. Need to get a move on though, particularly in the free agent market. Radz says loans or quality free agents. The quality free agents will be snapped up soon.

3.) 28 May 2019 14:15:43
Who are the free agents out there worth having.

4.) 28 May 2019 14:45:06
Nasri, Carzola, Cahill, Sturridge, Ribery, Wellbeck, Milner? an not see them ending up here though.

5.) 28 May 2019 15:36:33
Start off with a decent goalkeeper please.

I take no pleasure in stating my opinion, as much as I love Leeds United and keep thinking this is our season after season. Well not after today, we are f#cked. This is plain, simple. This is not our season, our style of attacking play is great to watch, however we do no have the quality in players to deliver the end product over the full season.

I'm totally lost for words at another implosion two seasons running. Brentford seem to have recruitment analysis staff of a high standard. They sell players on for good profit and recruit very well.
What is going on at Leeds that we can't do the same.



1.) 09 Feb 2020 06:41:03
Good post IBilko . yeah kind of envy Brentford on and off the pitch this season.

2.) 09 Feb 2020 06:57:53
2 reasons Bilko - Orta and Radz. Orta wouldn’t know talent if it slapped him in the face and isn’t capable of signing anyone without overpaying and throwing ridiculous wages at them and Radz allows talented players to leave for a fraction of their price and then wastes the money generated on loan players who don’t play.

3.) 09 Feb 2020 07:00:16
Which bit is great to watch? I watch all the time and find it boring and frustrating. I prefer watching goals than sideways passing followed by an ineffective lump forward or a cross to nobody.



08 Feb 2020 14:02:47
Be shouting and cheering the mighty Leeds United on today, c'mon lads you can do this today and start an unbeaten run.

I've had my gripes on here recently but it's frustration because I want what all LEEDS fans want - Promotion, to be be the best.
And I will moan and gripe again no doubt!

But today I have good feeling Pablo and Harrison are going to work some of their genius today.


1.) 08 Feb 2020 14:53:34
Yes indeed we all crave promotion.

For Leeds to actually win today they
will need the same level of performance they managed against Millwall second half.

. hope the players come out almost angry with a steely and cool determination get their shots on target.

2.) 08 Feb 2020 15:07:48
Hopefully we will do the simple basic thing in football when in front of their goal area, see the goal, steady yourself and shoot. We don’t need twenty passes.

3.) 08 Feb 2020 15:20:07
You’re preaching to the choir there pal - let’s hope it is a thumping win.

4.) 08 Feb 2020 15:45:22
Exactly boys. Anger, channelled. Aggression, tenacity and passion! Come on Leeds!

5.) 08 Feb 2020 16:59:59
Need a positive result now, for sure!



05 Feb 2020 16:21:48
Reading some good posts, really enjoyed the jokes yesterday 👍.

Just on Roofey's comments from his interview with that wooden ars*hole Jim ' I know nowt about football' White. Roofey reckons we're doing alright and has a good feeling LEEDS will get promoted.

Getting to my point I agree with comments on where Radz has failed to improve the squad where it's weak. ST, MF, CB, and GK. These were so smack in your face obvious need to sort before season began and in January. Nothing has changed.

Other teams below are gaining on us at a gallop thankfully Brom have also been in poor form.

If we don't go up again from having a good first half of the season and kicking on Radz has to explain this truthfully. Not through smoke and mirror excuses and an Amazon prime series season review of how it all went wrong again. Made me feel depressed 🤬.


1.) 05 Feb 2020 16:44:53
IBilko it is the same deja vu mistakes as last season

It will be the same deja vu smoke and mirror excuses from Radz

Only a very slim chance of Leeds finishing in the top 2 now, but I will be praying for good fortune in the likely play off games. we must go up.



04 Feb 2020 09:42:05
If 'big Kev' gets injured or is struggling to get going in this league what are our options?
Do we terminate the loan? Can we? Do we have the option for emergency loan of ST?
Who would we get? Vydra from Burnley, Gray of Watford?

Just sharing thoughts, don't think we would terminate lan IMO!


1.) 04 Feb 2020 12:07:53
Emergency loans for outfield players no longer exist.



03 Feb 2020 00:38:57
As much as I love all things LEEDS United I am now convinced we're not getting promoted AGAIN this season despite our current league position.

Thank you Radz and Orta for not learning anything from last season. Too much dithering in this transfer window. Some very good players snapped up by our nearest promotion rivals that would not have broke the bank.

Even the pundits were repeating warnings not to mess up in January window this season.

We didn't just need a striker, we needed a MF, CB, and decent GK.

If the opposition put ten men between us in their 25 yard area then we're not going to get through. How about having a few more shots from distance if the chance is there.
We just kept being so predictable for Wigan by feeding the ball out wide all the time, they knew how to stop us.

This is heartbreaking to watch promotion drifting away yet again!

I've followed LEEDS for over 50 years and it doesn't get easier watching the team get close to achieving but trip up.

Having said all this I am LEEDS United till I die and they'll always have my support (with some cursing at times) .



1.) 03 Feb 2020 07:15:34
One man chiefly to blame for all that’s good and all that’s bad with Leeds United and he’s the guy sitting on the bucket . Don’t go blaming others as he certainly wouldn’t .

2.) 03 Feb 2020 09:10:14
Nice post Bilko. Think we are all hurting after Saturday! My guts were twisted for hours, and that feeling of inevitable failure creeps into the mind. Awful.

3.) 03 Feb 2020 11:52:37
Awful feeling i agree. We have hard games this month but bright side is we should get a lot of points in March which is the ideal time.

Hess, if the board had done any scouting like they would have us believe the we would have had a couple of decent signings done and dusted by now. I fear we will have the best efforts of the current squad and MB for the remainder of the season.
A win at QPR is only one win, 3 pts towards the magic 37 - 40 pts IMO we need for promotion. Me feels no signings and no promotion again is on the cards.

Here we go again, like shopping for presents five minutes to midnight on Christmas Eve. If Radz and co are serious about promotion and remembering their comment “we’ve learnt from last seasons mistakes” they need to stop dicking around and bring in a quality ST not someone never heard of.
Kodija is out of contract in June, sign him or show some real ballocks and go get Gayle!
And sing a decent MF to create and open up defences.
Sell Kiko and bring in one of the Newcastle GK we were linked with in the summer. They’re contracts are also finished in June.

C’mon Radz finger out mate 😡.

Agree Ox, no complaints about how Radz is running the club. I would rather we are promoted without over spending above what we can afford.
We’re making progress and last season showed what happens when fine tuning is done sensibly.

Onwards and Upwards.

Just read same on News Now media link - I’m not getting too excited until it’s announced as a done deal.

Hey, no doubt would be a great acquisition, only concern is if the rumour of Burnley interest in klitch has momentum who do we have to mix it up in the midfield? Teams are going to route one us attacking through centre while we are plan A - get the ball and attack out wide with no plan B of having good attacking options in the middle.

Just a concern, hope it makes sense. I’m sure MB will have this in mind.

Onwards and upwards.

Leeds were completely different last night compared to Saturday, we were much more confident and it wasn’t just one or two players it was the whole team. Great to have Phillips back MOM last night easy. Bam Bam played well too.
Need to get 100% behind the team as usual next two home games.

I know it’s difficult for JKA to rock into a game as important as last night but what I’ve seen of him so far he is off the pace and does need to improve fitness levels. Once he’s up to speed we’ll get a better idea of what he can or can’t do.

Brilliant response tonight, very good performance from the Team. No comment about Kiko.

It’s all about confidence and that’s what Leeds were tonight, best team by a country mile.

As much as my frustration is at our recent downturn in form, I still believe this Leeds team has what is needed to turn things around. We’re not done yet, I trust MB and the players.

I certainly can’t get it some want MB sacked, madness. Sam f**king Allerdyce, REALLY!
