New rumour from a few different sources (French Football News/ Goal) saying we are trying to convince Julian Draxler to join from PSG.
Highly, highly unlikely, but wouldn’t that be epic!

1.) 08 Sep 2020 18:08:11
Epic effort but looks like he prefers living in Paris to living in Leeds

Strange lad.

2.) 08 Sep 2020 18:49:22
Yes apparently he is not interested.


3.) 09 Sep 2020 00:38:30
Other woody 😂.

4.) 09 Sep 2020 12:43:40
He is on £120,000.a week. Never happening.

5.) 09 Sep 2020 13:16:20
Draxler, Really? let's just park him on the list between Messi and Bale. Just above Ronaldo (Christiano that is) .
Maybe he does prefer Paris to Leeds but he could live in Batley and get the train in.

6.) 10 Sep 2020 11:10:37
Why not Beeston, and just walk to the ground?



26 Aug 2020 13:01:05
Apparently Greenwood from Arsenal is also having a medical today! This lad could be good signing, he chose Leeds over Man U! The lad is obviously bright as well!



25 Aug 2020 18:32:42
Phil Hay saying that the Rodrigo deal is all but done, and that he will having a medical, and Phil don’t lie
Very happy if this lands, big statement of intent, just need Koch, Holding, Messi and Wilson and it’s sorted!

1.) 26 Aug 2020 20:17:13
Rodrigo all done. Listed on Leeds website as 2nd striker :)
It's also on the Premier league website under Leeds squad.



26 Jun 2020 09:49:11
Orta being touted by Red Bull for their Technical Director of Football role! WOW

He said he is surprised by the interest, and so am I

He also said he does not expect to leave Leeds! Why would do that to us Orta, Why, Why?



05 Aug 2019 22:23:42
Reports from Belgium are that Roofe has completed a switch to Anderlecht on a 3 year deal.
Hopefully we will see some more transfer action with a couple coming in tomorrow. Reports from Inter Milan are that a deal is close for their young CB and Striker, could be very promising!

I was correct, Roberts is not good enough for the Premiership, he is an absolute passenger in the first half, and I thought he was supposed to have pace! He is being outstripped by every City player.
Apart from the first 20 mins (and Roberts) , we have reason to be hopeful, and the Alioski and Ailing chances, we could have been well and truly in it!

1.) 03 Oct 2020 19:50:04
Disagree. Roberts got better, more involved and more creative as the game wore on.
Don’t forget the fact that he cost 3million, versus players who cost 90million!
Don’t know what you expect?

2.) 03 Oct 2020 22:23:21
I expect a player in the Premiership to be good enough to be there, the fact he cost £3m has nothing to do with anything! Foden cost £0!

3.) 04 Oct 2020 10:30:20
So did Shacks, McCalmont, Davies, Kalvin, Poveda. so I don’t see your point.



03 Oct 2020 16:59:51
Not overly impressed that Roberts has been given another start in the number 10 position. He hasn’t delivered this season and isn’t good enough at the moment for the Premiership, and we are up against a fairly decent team!
Hope I am wrong and he has a stormer of a game, but I won’t hold my breathe!
Come on boys, let’s turn over City so I can send a sarcastic tweet to Noel ‘Muppet’ Gallagher.



19 Sep 2020 16:57:26
My ticker can’t take this!
Good result but credit to both teams, but we should have been out of sight before Fulham got a quick couple.
Happy Saturday everyone!



17 Sep 2020 19:37:54
Can’t help but feel sorry for Augustin, think he is being treated poorly by Red Bull and us, don’t think we are covering ourselves in glory on this one, a deal is a deal.
As no one is paying his wages, we should try and agree to take him for free or for a few million, but then it gets him off their wage bill, there is a good striker there if he stays fit and could be good for us?

1.) 17 Sep 2020 19:46:28
Much rather swiss army knife got something from club, he coming to end, JKA only a youth, he will get another club, but I do agree with your sentiment about us not covering ourselves in glory , you would have to presume its Leeds trying to swerve this 1, if club had a get out of jail card then surely it would be in the public domain you would have thought.

2.) 17 Sep 2020 19:54:55
The problem is Bubs doesn't want him so he wouldn't get a game. I also feel bad for him and completely blame Orta for bringing in players that aren't right and making terrible deals.

3.) 17 Sep 2020 20:06:45
Midfield, I have said it before and I will stick to the mantra

JKA has been involved with Bielsa training (including murderball) . If the geezer is still willing to come to Leeds then I think the guy has got something we could use. If, instead, he didn't like the training then i doubt any transfer would be do-able anyway. It's ok for RB to want rid, it's ok for Leeds to 'have to take him, contractually". But the guy can just say poke it, that sort of work ain't for me.

If he still wants to come, get him signed. £18m in the PL is equivalent to £5m in the Championship (using TV revenue as a rough guide) . We could afford £5m there for Forshaw. This kid is potentially way better than that.

4.) 17 Sep 2020 20:13:46
Indeed MG one other poster on here referred to him as a coup to sign him so he must have some talent.

5.) 17 Sep 2020 21:21:56
Don't know about him ever being a coup, bazooks, I always felt why there was 2 clubs who couldn't wait to get shot of 1 player? Just another dud from Victor imo.

6.) 18 Sep 2020 09:29:22
He was one of the stars of an international youth tournament not a lad in the Chesham Sunday league.

Or Luke Varney

MB was well aware of him and sanctioned the move

Had it come off we had signed a player whilst in the championship, that was very highly regarded not that long ago

He wanted to play for Leeds

The kid can play, something was seen whilst in Leeds that cooled that relationship

He’ll be back at a top European club.

7.) 18 Sep 2020 10:34:41
Other woody, Alex Mowatt was very highly rated once upon a time also! Not being over critical, but words are just that, words, Too often young promising players regress to below an average level for whatever reason .

Jka was nowhere near good enough that's why bubs has made it clear he not wanted here.

8.) 18 Sep 2020 12:01:30

The thing is if JKA was' nowhere near good enough' for Bielsa due to talent, attitude, fitness or whatever. why on earth did Orta and co agree to spend £21 million on him . sheer lunacy.

9.) 18 Sep 2020 13:30:27
Bazooks, I thoroughly agree with you, you know my stance on Victor pulling donkeys out of the hat,
The very day we signed JKA I said it was a poor poor choice, I base this on my assertion that both Leipzig + more importantly in the middle of a loan Monaco wanted shot of him,

For me that was way too much of a red flag altogether.



23 Aug 2020 14:33:44
John Stones rumour still around, personally would love to see him at Leeds, he would be a class act under BW. If we get Koch as well, boom, solid at the back.
If we can get one of these strikers from Stuggart or Valencia then I would be much more confident going into the new season.
Come on Victor, pull your finger out of your @rse and sign some quality players.

1.) 23 Aug 2020 15:26:57
MG. I'd love to see Stonesat Leeds, as I think he'd suit Bielsa's style, but he'd have to take a massive drop in wages so I can't see it myself.

2.) 23 Aug 2020 16:29:59
Agreed Danum
Stones is on a £100k a week.

3.) 23 Aug 2020 16:48:27
Well if you believe the rumours then stones rob holding and Koch all promising links and Rodrigo from Valencia . I’d seriously opt out of Kent, if we could get him at 10 then maybe but if they are asking 15 to 20 plus then I’d rather look at Harry Wilson . I think Poveda Harrison costa will all have good seasons I back them Along with Phillips to have standout seasons.

I was impressed with him last season, and he was playing in a parp team and stood out! I think he will be a good addition.

Things are definitely looking up George. Good signing for sure.

Slough, sorry mate but this is a great signing if it happens. With the way we play and the chances we will create, he will bag a boat load. He’s a great finisher, but to get goals you need chances, and that’s what Leeds create and Bamford can’t capitalise on!

That’s the best joke I’ve heard all year! I’m perplexed that even a Rangers fan thinks Rangers is a big club!
They are a decent team in a a Sunday League.
I hope we don’t waste £10m on Kent, far better players are out there for less money. Rangers a big club! hahaha.

To be fair, he did throw himself on the floor at the start when someone breathed on him, but the ref gave him no joy, so he stayed on his feet thereafter!

I think the only ones who have found their feet are Fulham and Sheffield Utd, they just can’t use them properly!

Hopefully those two will keep losing and be joined by Villa, Brighton, Burnley, West Brom and Man U, all propping up the league!

But harsh CW, at least he has been honoured for going above and beyond what he does on a day to day basis, he hasn’t done this for PR, I think he genuinely cares and wants to make a difference and has used his status to do so.

Completely agree, he has done tremendous work and fully deserves the honour
It’s just a shame, as Cyno mentioned, they are devoid of value and have been proved again by awarding one to Lorraine Kelly, who adds zero value in this world and is basically an oxygen thief.
