Odds on an announcement on Monday about the manager?


1.) 10 Jun 2018 07:49:43
Which monday?, The one before the season starts! Becoming a bit of a joke now.

2.) 10 Jun 2018 10:21:52
Unfortunately Mezzer that's how our recruitment has been for several years now. The only time in recent seasons when it was better was after Monk's appointment, we made a few decent signings and it didn't seem to take forever to get the deals done.

3.) 10 Jun 2018 11:07:59
Agree Mezzer.

4.) 10 Jun 2018 14:08:51
What about Alex sabella for manager

5.) 12 Jun 2018 21:37:10
Mezzer and his crystal ball

Getting a bit bored of trawling through click bait on news now for an article that could potentially be true. Are there any solid rumours? I've seen the same names thrown about below but is there anything to them? On a side note anybody have a better site than news now?


1.) 22 May 2018 20:27:49
Prob only Jerry rumour true

2.) 22 May 2018 21:19:28
Newsnow good source of information even if it's just developing rumours. No-one of any note will complete a transfer prior to the CL final. Last couple of days in May should see something happen like Abel joining along with Whyte.

3.) 23 May 2018 08:38:49
Not believing any of the rumours yet. Only Jerry looks possible at the moment and that looks down to us if we want him. The rest are just speculation. Would not believe any unless we put a bid in for them. Happens every year linked with good players only to fing we can't afford them or they are not for sale then noone else is available and we end up with a couple of loanees from Fleetwood.



22 Apr 2018 23:35:02
Why did Radz and Orta actually sign Roberts? They might see hell of a potential in him to spend a fair bit on a youngster who wouldn't be able to play for a season? Maybe the genuinely knew nothing of the injury, but for some reason I have a feeling they did. Be interesting when he comes in to the team next season!


1.) 23 Apr 2018 07:39:59
He is supposed to have some pedigree and class.

2.) 23 Apr 2018 08:09:22
So has my Irish staffy George but he's crap at football

3.) 23 Apr 2018 14:51:43
Have we sunk to slagging players off before they've even kicked a ball in anger now? the mind boggles

{Ed033's Note - Somebody has to take the blame

4.) 23 Apr 2018 18:16:19
No all but he was bought to play so bought to lay on the physio table so someone in the management team is to blame

5.) 23 Apr 2018 21:10:39
Yep. won't slag the player. Surely he had a medical before being signed? Somats gone very wrong in processing the signing, only for him to not play for the first half season of his contract? That's a joke really.

6.) 24 Apr 2018 20:49:57
He did have a medical then cracked a shin in training



14 Feb 2018 19:42:12
Don't get why so many people are opposed to radz '5 year plan'. I'm sure a lot of people will be eating humble pie when we're a strong side in the prem in 5 years, I know I'd much rather have a 5 year plan than a one hit season in the champ and get annihilated week in week out next year in the prem and end up in league 1 two years later


1.) 14 Feb 2018 20:45:44
So good to read a sensible post, totally agree O’Leary just posted something similar saying we are in a good a position as we’ve been for many a year.

2.) 14 Feb 2018 21:46:29
Totally agree. Too many people want instant success which sometimes is acheivable but rarely sustainable. I have so much admiration for Radz plan and his strength of will to persevere. The more it goes on the more I feel that when we do go up it will have longevity.

3.) 14 Feb 2018 23:10:11
In all honesty Leodis I think some people on here including me are fed up of waiting, we build up for a new season and then it’s a no show again, It’s been a tough few years, we had MasterBates who nearly wiped us off the map, then that other lot who just used us for gain and who I believe have held us back! MC came in and although he got us on a stable footing he was a mad head and then Radz who has done a fantastic job, the only bad thing is he brought Orta in! It’s hard to remember that Radz has only been with us for just over half a season so in terms of club progression he’s doing wonders but impatient fans like me forget that! I love the fact that Radz owns us and I know he wants to succeed and he knows he will make mistakes, that’s in reality but myself and many others crave that success we had with O’Leary, this time though we want to have it properly and not recklessly, but and again we want it yesterday and not tomorrow! Negative or positive we all want the same thing! Good post O’Leary, 92 and Leodis.

4.) 15 Feb 2018 11:35:24
Instant success? We didn't get relegated last year we been out of premier league for over 12 yrs so to say people want instant success is potty.

5.) 15 Feb 2018 13:49:41
Class - couldn't agree with the essay you wrote on the banter page more, wish I could give it two thumbs up!

Leodis - Completely correct on the longevity angle. Build the foundations first.

Mike - Completely appreciate where you're coming from, I know you've come under a bit of fire recently but it's nice to see you're still able to see it from other people's perspectives too!

Martyn - Sticking with theme of perspective, you could say it's been X amount of years since the old glory days and people are getting impatient but bare in mind we were in league 1 more recently than the premier league. Without Radz and even MC stepping in we could still be a tax write off for GFH today with absolutely no chance of major improvement, that is why I think Radz deserves at least a chance with his 5 year plan. Sorry for delayed responses. Living in china ATM, the time difference and firewall does not help! MOT.

6.) 15 Feb 2018 15:12:29
Leodis - the most frustrating thing is to be in the dark. I've always said if the chairman shares the plan with us so tat we can see how we are doing against a goal people will be more patient and happier. if we don't know where we are going or how long it takes the journey is much more difficult.



18 Aug 2017 13:45:51
Two bits of positive news doing the rounds today, Leeds are in talks with lassogo but refusing to pay anything near his ridiculous wages and Wood has been offered a 3 year extension, whether you want him to stay or not, this will put it all to bed finally, either he signs and stays or refuses and leeds cash in.


1.) 18 Aug 2017 14:51:39
Ok ol

2.) 18 Aug 2017 17:36:16
Definitely good management to start talking about new terms for Wood, puts the ball in his court!

Clarke > allioski. Unbelievable energy when he came on, and choice making is 10x that of allioski. How long till he's ready for the full 90?


1.) 01 Dec 2018 16:50:25
So far he has shown he struggles with fitness to last 40 mins.

2.) 01 Dec 2018 17:17:29
If he plays 30-40 minutes and decides the game that’s enough at his age.

3.) 01 Dec 2018 17:35:27
He "decided" this one!

4.) 01 Dec 2018 18:09:10
If we can win with Clarke for 45mins fine, better use of the players available. Particularly in the role he plays, come on for 45 mins and give your all. Alioski and Harrison can do a shift and that’s before brown is ready. When Ayling is back, Dallas fits into that as well.

The Christmas and New year period is coming and with the table so tight, this could be the period where somone starts to break away.

Not bad that we have a few underused players available and possibly Brown and Bamford to play a little sooner rather than later.

5.) 01 Dec 2018 19:22:57
There keeper decided it for us.

6.) 01 Dec 2018 20:52:49
He gave us a chance but there was still a fair bit for Jack to do and he did it really well, calm and composed. I’ve seen a fair few people make a hash of it in that position. He took it and made it easier for Hernadez. We have created loads of stylish opportunities that we haven’t taken, need to be able to take the easier ones as well. And in a season you need to be able to win a few games like that. Well done fellas!



24 Oct 2018 21:38:27
Some of the football I just watched was an absolute pleasure! The bielsa era.




30 Sep 2018 00:31:56
Allioski is without doubt one of the weirdest players I've seen recently. Looks a world beater one week, then just a sprinting disaster with hair the next. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if this time next week Leeds fans were back to raving about his performance. Crazy ol' game.


1.) 30 Sep 2018 08:21:21
He’s never looked a world beater. he’s the weakest player in our team, decision making is shocking, can’t beat a man, gets caught offside all the time. I can’t fault his work rate, but that’s the minimum you expect.

2.) 30 Sep 2018 08:59:48
he has looked a world beater, leeds v millwall last season he and lassosga were a different class. Alisko has pace and gets goals and assist, he scares other teams. he also loves to be offside and can be very inconsistent, that said so is harrision on the other wing, but then harrision is a kid so we should be more forgiving.

I think aloski is the fall guy by most fans and the media, yes he is frustrating but he is also the differece this season (go back watch early games which he won for us) . Until the others take him over in terms of goals and assist I think we have to accept he is the best we have got.

3.) 30 Sep 2018 10:13:22
There's something about Alioski and offsides. They are an element of the game that existed for him years ago. It's not just the English Championship that plays offsides so I believe by now this part of his game should be, if not eradicated, then certainly minimized. Why was he not pulled up in his U18s and U23s teams. Unfortunately this, coupled with his decision making, will, if not stamped out, greatly curtail his future. I, like some on here think that somewhere in there is a v good player trying to get out.

4.) 30 Sep 2018 13:17:27
i do think the others let him down a bit, MB has a style which suits Aloiksi but some times pass doesn't come. Lots of players have the offside problem. i do think in a man city team alosiki would be class and off side less due to the balls coming in. however play to the team you are in and wait a bit as he has pace and don't need to go early.



21 Sep 2018 13:26:37
Loving the positivity! What a time to be a Leeds fan. Witnessing the start of the bielsa era!




18 Sep 2018 20:27:11
Harrison stand out performer so far. Saiz and Phillips doing well too. Klichs movement is fantastic but missed two 1 on 1s. Nothing to worry the defence so far, a bit of constant pressure early on but nothing worrying for me. MOT.

I did find it extremely strange that he was captain (according to FlashScores) for the last two games and then I was au revoir!

Fast forward 4 years. Florian Jozefjoon signs for Derby, singlehandedly gets them promoted, moves to Barcelona, wins ballon d'or and I'm reading a newsnow article about how he almost signed for Leeds 4 years ago.

It's alright feeling bad for him but if he played Pearce and he had a shocker/ got slated you'd feel worse for him.

Come on Spanish be realistic, I agree with whiteman, not long until we're playing non league football at this rate, right whiteman?
