All the talk of Vydra deal already having been done, does that give the impression he might be training, if not with the squad, but to Balsa's guidance, fitness levels etc, so as to hit the ground running in January. get him up to speed in November and December
He scored 22 goals for rams in this league so knows what its about, he has also been well rested.
Is he coming as part of the final payment due on the Woods deal?
There appears to be yardage in this rumour.

Bit of wishfull thinking in there 70 but I do wish it was true. Get him and play him straight away.


2.) 01 Dec 2019 00:32:20
In a word, no.


3.) 04 Dec 2019 10:28:17
Apparently he’s not even on our list.


4.) 04 Dec 2019 13:46:36
Phil Hay quoted he definitely won't be coming!


5.) 07 Dec 2019 16:55:05
I wouldn't want him, don't think he is a premier league striker. Would rather we trusted Nketiah and Edmondson than spend heavily on Vydra, unless someone truly proven in the prem or much younger wit more potential than Vydra. His attitude when we tried to sign him initially doesn't endear him to me either.


6.) 08 Dec 2019 19:40:32
Much of the talk now is for Cenk Tosun and/ or Brewster.

On the possible sale of the club to QSI, bearing in mind to take most of these stories with a pinch of salt. Saying that the story is not going away and at the end of the most recent article from L@Equipe the most telling line for me was.

"L'Equipe reached out to Radrizzani for an update, but they were told the Italian would not be able to comment on the ongoing discussions. "

If this is the case and while a sale might never happen, stating that Radrizzani would not be able to comment makes me think negotiations are currently taking place and he is bound by a confidentiality agreement, which is normal in these circumstances.

Leeds1970

1.) 08 Nov 2019 13:33:40
Or he is just busy doing other things and a Journo wants to make a story out of nothing.


 

 

06 Nov 2019 12:10:36
On the ongoing negotiations, the entourage added: "There are real discussions, but it's a slow-moving file. But it can go faster tomorrow. "
L'Equipe are of the belief Leeds are estimated to cost QSI around €60-80m and responding to it, QSI source stated: "That's not wrong. "

If the deal to take over Leeds materialises, it will give QSI a potential future headache as UEFA rules don't allow two clubs involved in a European competition to be owned by a single entity.

"The right people will ask themselves the right questions to know how to do it, but we are very far from it, " the entourage said.

Meanwhile, L'Equipe reached out to Radrizzani for an update, but they were told the Italian would not be able to comment on the ongoing discussions.

Leeds1970

1.) 07 Nov 2019 20:48:36
I imagine that if QSI are looking to purchase Leeds United Football Club for approx £75m then they must be taking on all the incumbent debt too. By which I mean the remaining payments on all the recent outgoing transfer fees etc.
To my mind the low-ish transfer fees that have come in (Viera, Taylor etc) , in recent times, seem to hint at most of the money has been paid up front and there will be little if any further payments coming in. Nothing for QSI to offset against those that need paying in the future.

Also, at that price, i hope they are buying Elland Road, which isn't actually owned by LUFC.

Otherwise that is a lot of money for a EFL team that only manages to break even despite the largest share of TV revenue and a global fanbase.


2.) 08 Nov 2019 13:35:12
I doubt we got transfer fees up front. Didn’t usually work that way these days.

All I can think is Rads appears to be doing a Bates at the moment. This is not good.
Starting to rapidly lose faith in Rads.

Leeds player sales: 9m Clarke, 3.5m BPF, Pontus 5.5m, 7m Roofe, Saiz 2.5m. Plus a few million for Wilkes, Halme etc. We've got a bjt of a war chest!

Call me an optimist, though if we end the transfer window by signing Gayle 12m, Kent 10m and a CB then that would be a great window and we'd be stronger than last season.


2.) 02 Aug 2019 22:14:47
thats ok 70, i started that process about 18 months ago 😂😂, Eventually everyone will see he ain't the answer .


3.) 03 Aug 2019 01:51:44
So who would you be happy with Chris? Prob no one is the real answer.


4.) 03 Aug 2019 08:18:36
Gayle.


5.) 03 Aug 2019 09:44:04
I would be very happy if we could break this run of chairmen we have had now for over a decade and a half . The definition of madness is repeating same process repetitively and expecting a DIFFERENT outcome . Seriously do you feel radz is any diff to GFH or Mass? . Is been 15 year now since we crashed are you not feeling we deserve better? . That's almost 2 generation of kids who haven't seen a Premiership home game that for me is real bad .


6.) 03 Aug 2019 10:10:51
Chris Insinuating that Radz is possibly like GFH is beyond ridiculousness and outrageous. Radz is the best Chairman we've had since Leslie Silver.


7.) 03 Aug 2019 10:41:32
best of a bad lot, we are where we are and that ain't changing, Good will at beginning of season amounts to nothing come end of it . When here we are again stuck in Limbo, obviously you must be happy with the current status quo, but myself and a good few others on here would hope for better from the man who controls the money.


8.) 03 Aug 2019 10:57:11
Chris

Great rant. Totally followed your logic. And every poster on here deserves to be read at least

However. I am with George. Your fixation on the chairman is mildly uncomfortable and as he hasn't been with the club all those 15 years you speak of I can't see how he is to blame for the lack of premiership football

Last pre-season he was chastised for bringing in a foreign coach who "knows nothing of how to get out of the Championship". Can I remind you that we have had our best finish in those 15 years you mentioned.

Also last pre-season he was howled at as he sold our best young midfielder to a foreign giant and kept Klich. Now we have the best midfield in the division with every member of it worth more than Viera.


9.) 03 Aug 2019 11:16:42
axe_on_tour Are you seriously trying to tell us that there is some logic in selling your best central defender, seemingly our best forward Roofe (both unlikely to be replaced) for fairly poor money in the case of Pontus having a similarly small squad then last season and expecting better results.


10.) 03 Aug 2019 16:54:19
Chris x2, Not sure what you are talking about. I am with George and Axe, Radz is bar far the best Chairman we have had in years. Yes I would like a chairman to bring in Neymar and Bale, but it ain’t going to happen, but last year was the best year we have had in terms of performances and results for a long time, and that starts at the top.
Selling Pontus had to happen if he was a bad apple, no matter how good, club comes first! If we land Gayle, Kent and perhaps another CB, will Radz then become a legend?
Cockerney, I would say, if Roofe goes and Gayle comes in, that’s a result!


11.) 03 Aug 2019 18:04:50
cheers axe and great to read your post also pal in which your points are clearly made, on radz, my. fixation on him is two fold, firstly as we all know on here he's the boss, so as we all know how it works ultimately its the boss who controls the cash . Radz is the man who could have changed all this last January axe, had he just released the cash to buy some additions to squad chances are we wouldn't be talking about the championship season now.
Leeds were i think the first team that were top xmas day that didn't go up in 12 seasons i think .

We had the. top scorer in the championship in our hands (Vydra ) and we let him go to buy Bamford . The mind boggles .
Secondly indeed Radz has not been here throughout all our rubbish last 15 but that fact don't change, the fact we have been here and really a lot of us feel like its time enough to move on, and as i said that only happens, by buying players like Vydra and not Jay Roy + Caleb (no disrespect ) but their not good enough as we have seen time + again.

Anyways i on the del boys here in spain currently and am looking forward to game tomorrow
After all fundamentally we all want same thing LUFC back in big time, cheers pal.


12.) 03 Aug 2019 20:41:36
With GEORGE on this one Radz probably the best we have had for a long time, but does not mean he much good. Bubs is the one doing the business Cellino for all his faults would have put his money in last Jan and gone for it.


13.) 03 Aug 2019 22:55:44
Cockney he wasn’t our best defender as stats prove, look at his behaviour today? I have a 5 yr old who acts better than janson.


14.) 04 Aug 2019 09:00:05
Cockney

I agree that Pontus was our best defender last year. Being the tallest, with the most weight, and actually quite fast, he played well for us. However I think Cooper wasnt far behind. And I thought I watched centre backs from other less prominent teams play equally as well as Pontus.
I wished we had received more money for him, but life is what it is

As for Roofe, I have always admired his football. He works hard. He thinks about the game. He is versatile. But.

I sincerely believe that any Championship level striker would have scored the same number of goals from the number of chances Leeds created last year. In a nutshell, he can be replaced, and £7m is a good amount for a Championship level player in his final year.


15.) 04 Aug 2019 09:02:58
Chris Chris

I also would have liked to have seen Vydra at Leeds, but it wasnt to be

I think Leeds are hoping to spend less, on a few players, and find a Vydra in the making

That's were we sit in the financial status.


16.) 05 Aug 2019 03:48:28
Re: Vydra.

It was Bielsa who pulled pin. Vydra was in Leeds and Radz was reading to 'splash the cash' but when asked in an interview about his football Vydra said staying in the Championship was 'ok', but he believed he should be playing for a Premier League team. Bielsa decided he wasn't commited enough so pulled pin.


17.) 05 Aug 2019 03:54:16
Also. Radz may not be the richest (personally I think he's done a good job) but he did buy Elland Road back, has brought in El Loco and has invested in Youth. way better than anyone in recent years. ALAW MOT.


18.) 05 Aug 2019 10:15:27
Correct he did buy E. R back but LUFC still don't own it, Radz does privately albeit some holding company prob based in a attic on the Cayman Islands.


 

 

24 Jul 2019 08:05:46
Ed2. The debate is about the money we are not spending and whether the squad is good enough at present. Spending £5m to £10m on 4 or 5 players who have room to develop further, young Gradel, Bechio or Snodgrass types, who will strengthen the squad, would give us a better chance at promotion, would not just be spending money to placate fans. Those 3 players would have gotten us promoted last season . This would not be gung-ho spending either in would be sensible investment in players.

Leeds1970

1.) 24 Jul 2019 10:29:34
That’s not unreasonable 70. Tho I think for those players now, you’d be looking at £30 million, so far toward madness that the market has gone. I believe this is where the idea of investing in youth has come from, so that we create those players.


2.) 24 Jul 2019 12:15:34
Yes BRIGHT create then give away, Halme, Diaz, Wilks, Rey, Nicell and who goes next year Edmo, Bogus, Stevens?


3.) 24 Jul 2019 13:03:36
Apologies to Word-count Aus in advance.

Some on here seem pretty convinced that we will not be buying any more new players this window, and I think someone referred to twitter comments from Phil Hay to back this up. Not sure I've seen the original comments but reports suggest he merely advised we would not be buying anyone at CB, CF or in midfield.

Granted most on here (including me) are keen to see CB addition, but I've seen him rule out any additions to the squad. We know Bielsa took in the Bradford v Liverpool game and that we trialed Max Johnstone in goal v Tad, and that BPF has not got any recent pre-season minutes.

This suggests we may be on the lookout for a no2 goalkeeper and it would seem Bielsa was scouting at Bradford (presumed to be for another advanced wide player) . So we would seem to be in the market, possibly for other positions too.

It could be that Bielsa is thinking that Costa or another winger would be able to play as a Roofe-style striker or perhaps that three wingers could interchange positions throughout a match - causing mayhem to any defence set up to contain our attacking threat - which could explain the supposed interest in another winger. I guess he probably feels Bambam and Edmondson can fill the target-man role when required.

Not saying I'm necessarily happy or if that proves to be the case. Just that we may not be done in the transfer market just yet.


4.) 24 Jul 2019 13:59:15
Love the positive spin, really interesting way to look at the situation.


5.) 24 Jul 2019 16:20:53
As all were ready to move up BIGE, I can only guess a certain MB didn’t think they were going to cut the mustard? And maybe taking up match places of others that he rates as having greater potential? Doubt we gave them away either, all will have commanded a fee. Of course, I’m only speculating here, as no one knows for sure who has been making the calls on these lads.
Of those who have or are going, Nicell is the biggest surprise to me.

The season must be finished, it would cause too many legal cases if not allowed to finish.
You cannot just write of the efforts of clubs and teams who have played 37 of 46 fixtures.
There are various solutions, one being if there are no matches played in March and we then extend the normal season to 16th May playing Wednesday and Saturday that gives you 7 Weds and 7 Sats, 14 dates in total to play 9 fixtures. After the players have rested up for over two weeks it should not be too big a problem. Play 4 games over a fortnight, allow a weeks rest another 4 games over a fortnight with another weeks rest before the final fixture. No play offs top 3 go up, bottom 3 relegated.

Leeds1970

1.) 15 Mar 2020 14:48:49
Leeds can’t see that it will, we have no assurance that even after 3 April that any games will be played, I think Liverpool will be awarded the PL and Leeds with WB will be promoted to PL. This will move down to the other leagues.


2.) 15 Mar 2020 15:02:40
1970 - couple of issues there. Firstly, it's highly unlikely football will actually return at the beginning of April. The number of cases of Covid-19 aren't expected to peak until June at the earliest. It would seem fairly likely that footballers and other club staff will continue to become infected, so even behind doors would not be possible. Secondly, you say the season must be completed so as to avoid possible legal cases, then go on to suggest the play-offs be scrapped - with top three going up. so this wouldn't prompt legal cases from the teams placed 4-6?


3.) 15 Mar 2020 18:15:28
It's the frikin flu.


4.) 15 Mar 2020 19:11:25
Vinny without being dramatic if all 67 million in the UK get it at the current fatality rate of 3%, 2.1 million could die from it. so i massively disagree, more to life than football, this my friend is a world war until it get nipped in the bud. MOT more than ever.


5.) 15 Mar 2020 19:24:23
Personally I believe if it came it I don’t see why 9 games can’t be played in three weeks. At least everyone be in the same boat so to speak. However I’m confident that the remaining games will be played June July.


6.) 15 Mar 2020 20:04:12
Well said Dougie mate. I’ve been informed over here in Ireland that come Tuesday it’s a total lockdown. Army and cops on patrol and everything closed apart from chemists and supermarkets will have a limit on people. I find it strange Boris’ decision schools etc.


7.) 15 Mar 2020 21:18:51
Death rate will become lower once it averages out but still life and death is a big thing. Legally cases will happen all over the place leeds wang up villa won’t come down

Answer has to be season played out at later date and summer break don’t happen or everyone is happy meaning teams go up but don’t come down

I think they will do us with one off play offs so top play bottom second play second bottom and we will choke and get beat by Norwich and Wong go up think that is how they use to do it and think it did is a m in the day


Even when things go well leeds go wrong the don was right it’s a gysy curse . I blame the wife’s family.


8.) 15 Mar 2020 21:19:46
Cork, isolating everyone at home in a lockdown now is madness as the virus has not peaked in Britain yet. We are weeks behind the rest of mainland Europe. If people were to stay home for a few weeks now and then come out thinking all is well then the level of the virus is likely to spike and the nhs is unlikely to cope. As a support worker who has to support vaunerable people, a lockdown won't work. Healthcare workers will be needed to continue regardless of the virus. So keeping kids at school for now is the right call in Mainland britain, try keeping school age teens in home if they were off school.


9.) 15 Mar 2020 21:40:46
Should say keep kids in school for now.


10.) 15 Mar 2020 21:45:48
You maybe right Mez. But you may be wrong. I think if you asked the Italians they’d say you were probably wrong. Then again the UK is a totally different case to Ireland.


11.) 16 Mar 2020 00:07:27
Dougie those numbers are less than the regular flu. Any mild illness can be fatal when you're above a certain age or have a weak immune system. IMO it's a complete joke that football has been suspended.


12.) 16 Mar 2020 06:29:12
Vinney i get your point but just looking at current UK deaths to confirmed cases so far, that is the maths.

I came back from benidorm on Saturday and it was carnage at airport, jet2 cancelled fights in mid air and to top it off i am now showing symptoms of the virus, hopefully just a cold though. 🤞.

Our Thoughts are with you.
Sincerest Sympathies

Tributes have been pouring in for an Irish Leeds United supporter who died suddenly at Dublin Airport after flying home from a game at the weekend.
Patrick 'Gouch' Kinsella is believed to have suffered a heart attack in the airport on Sunday after just watching his beloved team beat Huddersfield 2-0 the day before.
The Wicklow man, who was in his 60s, was a well-known member of the LUFC fan club
The South of Ireland Leeds United supporters group said: "With the sad news of the sudden passing of Pat Kinsella, also a stalwart of the Wexford Whites.

That is all we can do Easter fixtures looks challenging but one step at a time you can not get any higher than top so I think we may as well stay there but i think Fulham will drop a lot ofpoints.

On paper at least Fulham's next four games are a nightmare compared to ours. On a less positive note, Bams stats are the worst in the Championship. Overall though, whilst I wish we had an out n out striker, I feel generally optimistic.


2.) 27 Feb 2020 19:42:50
Can't and won't agree to this. I do not consider such to be in the interests of the club and fans. I'm more than content with our goalkeepers, defence and midfield. It's up to you know who to sort out his flagging fortunes in front of goal. It's not encouragement he needs nor motivation, it's practice. I expect and demand he practices until he gets it right. Much rides on it. I want promotion in 2 months. It's not just us fans but the city and all of football who want us back where we belong. Time to step up and take what's ours. 💙💛.

Post of the year so far George.


7.) 27 Feb 2020 23:21:17
George - 7do you honestly believe that BamBam doesn't practice shooting from all angles/ distances, left, right, headed etc etc. Of course he does, and I'd hazard a guess that a good proportion of them fly into the net - with a few 'worldies' like the volley that led Bielsa to run across to give him a hug.

It's the pressure of the match situation which probably makes the difference - particularly with the additional expectations placed upon him as the main man up front - despite his protestations that he relishes the prospect. I also dare say that if everyone else was regularly weighing in with goals and we were scoring the three or four goals a match which our approach play and chance creation merit, BamBam would be scoring much more regularly, as he would feel far less pressure specifically on him to score.


8.) 28 Feb 2020 06:39:33
Whilst I certainly empathise with Georgie's sentiments and frustrations in his post . Clueless your post. and points are the ones that are bang on.


9.) 28 Feb 2020 09:01:11
BamBam just needs to relax

Scoring is a reflex action when you get to this stage. The hard work is done.

He’s too tense

This is in his head. Someone get him to yoga.


10.) 28 Feb 2020 09:58:49
Not sure how you could replicate the matchday pressure in practice.

Perhaps try could have system of weekly bonuses. So perhaps for example all outfield players in the first team squad except BamBam and JKA could be eligible for a bonus of maybe 2% if say 50% of their shots in practice were successful, but they would only receive the bonus if the two strikers were equally successful. For the goalkeepers, rather nd the goalkeepers would receive a bonus if they saved say 70% of those shots on target. It would probably be possible to game such a system, but I guess it could be made clear that if the coaches believed gaming was going on, all bonuses paid to date would be recouped.

I'm sure someone in Bielsa's staff could come up with a more refined system, but whatever was used could be used in the various age groups too, to promote greater efficiency generally, while ensuring that even in practice additional pressure would be on the strikers to deliver the reward their teammates' endeavours merited.


11.) 28 Feb 2020 10:19:29
Guess 2% each week would not be a huge amount of money therefore not so much pressure, so perhaps the pressure could be increased slightly by not paying out each week but rather putting any money due to each player into a pot to be paid to them at the end of the season, but any week one or more of the strikers failed to get the required percentage success, all pots would return to zero.


12.) 28 Feb 2020 10:47:45
clueless not sure about football but in theatre we have similar in that rehearsals like training matches can't replicate shows with an audience in them.

Professionals just have to deal with it, practice and praictie and have confidence in themselves.

I just did a show where the director who is like the manager distoryed an actors condifence, I had to build him back up to make sure he got through the show (and he did really well)

i have slated belisa and I think like our director he distroys players confidence and don't build them up like a venrbles, redknapp or mourino does.

Bamford when he took that pen looked deviod of confidence and that for me is part down to the gaffer, let's be honest all of our players look jittery

then look over belisa whole career, putting the ball in the net has been a long term problem depsite creating chances

maybe the problem lies not in the practice but in the mentallity?


13.) 28 Feb 2020 11:00:44
Of course, as Other Woody suggests, the alternative approach is some kind of therapy to enable Bambam to develop an inner calm and tune out matchday pressures.

Berm - how exactly do you believe Bielsa is destroying Bambam's confidence. Do you feel that by standing by him and continuing to pick him to start he is exposing him to a possible downward spiral of further pressure and consequent failure?


15.) 28 Feb 2020 12:41:13
Berm - if you look back over Bielsa's career you read and hear a lot of football journalists etc talking about how he has developed and improved players, with quite a number players also coming out saying the same about their own positive experiences with him as a coach. Yes there are a some desenting voices, but these seem few and far between. This hardly suggests a track record of destroying player confidence.

BW . you state Mourinho is a manager who builds up players confidence . really ?

Lads time is we forget all our differences, likes, dislikes and now let's get behind the team for the run in. 12 big games to go, we all need to be fully United and let's get it done.

Best post of the week, onwards and upwards.


2.) 24 Feb 2020 15:40:07
Fully agree Leeds1970.


3.) 24 Feb 2020 16:52:13
It's not about fan cohesion. That's buying into the mantra of Snake Nag Ruin. It's about goal scoring, conversion of chances. Bamford is not up to the task but the guy who is needs to lose a stone and get fit which probably will only occur late March. Everyone on here knows I love Leeds 💛💙 but it's a two way street. You want the complaining to stop the only way is Bamford taking his chances.

Moan all you like George, think its the sniping 1970 is on about. All in it together.


5.) 24 Feb 2020 18:14:09
Bb I defended Bam Bam for a season against Wex criticism mainly but he lost my support when he fluffed that PK. I won't snipe though. I'm happy with the rest of the team especially Dallasy but Bam Bam needs to start sticking them away.


6.) 24 Feb 2020 20:17:34
I’m with my long lost twin Georgie . Ever hopeful but with the inability to take our chances by Bam and others far from confident . This team is more than capable of screwing it up from here . 🤞.


7.) 24 Feb 2020 21:38:14
Agree about Bam as i have posted many times. Thing is we will not know if JKA is any better unless he starts games and we are running out of them so just need to get behind the lads and hope others start getting their share of goals.


8.) 24 Feb 2020 22:12:27
Lol maybe you are indeed getting tooo old and sensitive Corky . I can make you a hot cocoa to calm your irritability 😂😂.


9.) 25 Feb 2020 00:13:13
George - the 🐝🐝 have scored the second highest number of goals, and 7 more than us. However, did you know that they have actually blanked more often than we have in the league - 11 times (home to Brum, Stoke, Udders and Forest and away to us, Charlton, Preston, Forest, Blackburn, Millwall and Udders) compared with our 7 (home to Swans, Wendies and Wigan and away to Charlton, Wendies, QPR and Forest) ?


10.) 25 Feb 2020 14:35:46
Cluey Did not appreciate that but recently which is what concerns me they've been on fire. In George opinion they're a bigger threat than Fulham and I posted as much beginning of the season. 🐝 will finish top 3 guaranteed. Just hope it ain't no higher than 3rd.


11.) 25 Feb 2020 15:55:18
George - You seem to have written Your Own bit of gibberish in the last sentence. Guessing you meant either 'ain't higher 3rd' or 'is no higher than 3rd'.


12.) 25 Feb 2020 17:52:57
Clueless Hardly. Gibberish would mean everyone would be unable to decipher what was being said. Since you guessed correctly and immediately it instantly rules out gibberish as an effective description rendering the requisite portion of my post merely grammatically incorrect. Suggest you acquire a better grasp of our native tongue.


13.) 25 Feb 2020 22:13:06
I know what gibberish means George - drafting and proof reading are part of my job. It was a jokey imprecise throw away comment on my part.

Chris have you a decent source for this, rather than just journos rehashing headlines from other sites.

Think JC's advisers were trying to play one off against the other to get as much out of any deal as possible. Don't know if Clarke actually wanted to go, so they had to start a blame game to sell the move to JC, running Leeds down to sell the idea of the move to a reluctant JC might be one way of looking at it. Who knows? One thing that must be remembered is no one is bigger than the Club.

George, for the benefit of dating of contracts the 1st of July maybe important as a date, it might have a bearing on financial fair play years. The season/ year running from 1st July 19 to 30th June 20.

Think MB said he was happy with the players, because he did not want to undermine the current players confidence by saying some of them might be replaced . You offer any manager the option of better players and they will want them, it goes without saying. You just don't want to undermine the good players you want to keep.

Had a look at their fixtures and read the super computer predictions that you may have also seen, giving this outcome.
If we have learnt from last season and Pablo has saved himself for the run in we can do it. As we are :

The Might Whites and the best in this league.

85 points
9 wins
2 draws
Thats another 29 points or just over two points a game
means most of the others have to win 10 of their games.

Attacking four of Costa and Harrison on flanks, Bam Bam in middle and Augustin up front.
Then have Shacks or another defensive mid fielder sitting as a two in front of back four .

Bring on Alioski, Klich and Pablo later in the game if players get tired

We are too gung ho away from home against the better teams.
Lets not give anything away, keep it tight, keep the ball when we can.
