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



22 May 2018 18:17:05
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!

These are easily the best times of recent history to be a Leeds supporter. A real exciting manager with good history and realistically being linked to players like Abel. If those are the standard of players we are looking at whilst holding on to the gems like jannson and saiz with our u23s smashing opposition I am extremely optimistic about the near future! MOT!


1.) 20 Jun 2018 22:01:21
Optimism from a poster, that’s what I like to see



16 Jun 2018 10:29:31
If you told me in the GFH era we would have a man who will buy back the stadium, sort the players contracts out and get a quality manager in in the next few years I would have laughed and told you to go drink some water and eat some bread. This year or next, top of the table.




14 Jun 2018 21:08:10
Bielsa reportedly already watched hours of tape on each one of leeds' players. I like the sound of that!


1.) 14 Jun 2018 22:38:54
Just like TC did. I like the sound of him already, just hope to god he turns out to be more of a ruthless person that TC. I liked TC but he didn't seem to have a nasty or authoritative side to him

2.) 14 Jun 2018 22:50:08
I bet he thought that he had been sent a Chuckle Brothers boxset

3.) 14 Jun 2018 22:52:00
So he's the world's best coach and a masochist

4.) 15 Jun 2018 09:53:36
Lol Canada! I think we are going to get a revolution on the same scale as Sgt Wilko delivered, and can't wait for it to get started! On, on, on!

5.) 15 Jun 2018 13:04:21
poor guy. at least he will be able to empathise with what we all went through last season.



01 Jun 2018 13:01:01
Anybody else a bit sad to see the back of the set piece coach? Got used to the excitement of wondering what was coming from a free kick when we'd line up with 10 stood over the ball and one doing backflips in front of the goal keeper.


1.) 01 Jun 2018 15:21:01
Yeah, but after that one away at Burton there didn't seem to be much else.

2.) 01 Jun 2018 16:03:54
Another one who in my opinion was pinching money.

3.) 01 Jun 2018 20:03:24
OLeary4king, not sad at all, should never been given it in the first place, and who is to blame RADZ, sacking managers to save his own boat,



16 May 2018 15:06:29
How many quality and consistent breakthroughs from the u23s would it take this season for Radz plan to look hopeful and for everybody to agree Orta has done a good job? Not at all saying he has, just interested in what's needed for the fans forgiveness!


1.) 16 May 2018 19:09:45
I'd say that if another three became regulars in the squad, occasional starters, but frequent subs, then that's a damned good return. To be fair, they are lining up already, so fingers crossed!

2.) 16 May 2018 21:06:53
Whoa Brighty. Maybe we are on the verge of saying Orta has done a good job but let's just ameliorate that by ending - for the Academy. So maybe he should be Director of Future Football and leave the grown ups alone.

3.) 17 May 2018 00:00:50
I think if we can have a settled starting 11 with 5-6 young starters. Job well done. But he will also need to buy the right class experienced 2-3 we need now.

Mike I agree, I'm carefully thinking this could be the start of something good! I also have a fair bit of faith in Radz and I think he wouldn't have sacked the heck without, at the very least, positive discussions with another target. Here's to hoping. MOT!

4PM, completely agree. Be nice to see a coach given a bit of time. Didn't ferguson get off to a pretty bad start at man utd? Imagine if they had an itchy trigger finger too. Thankfully Radz seems to be more willing than most to give a chance, heckingbottom I think was probably second best and never stood a chance when someone Radz originally wanted became a legit possibility. Hopefully mad man and hernanzdez are en route! Good bits of business that I'll be ecstatic with!

Don't bite bright, leave him to it, I for one look forward to whitemans posts, it's quite entertaining watching him trying to put a negative on absolutely everything :) .

I'd be a bit fed up if there wasn't anything else lined up/planned by the time they actually left the club! Feel like we would be taking 2 steps back again.

Rumour has it after that is announced the powers that be will announce a 40 point deduction for the top 12 teams in the championship season just ended and all the promotion prize money will go to the team that finished 1st after the deduction. Funny old world.

Completely different arguments and perspective there whiteman. The players have a contract with the club and are employees. Bielsa hasn't signed a thing and answers to nobody ATM, he's reportedly happy with the financial package (which was your main point in a previous post) but wants to make sure he has what he needs to be successful which is completely fair. If he finally agrees what he needs is there and signs on the dotted line then he has every bit of a right to call them in early and get started with them. Quite confused as to why you'd be annoyed about that and think it's a bad thing? As shutt said, I think it's a good sign and I completely agree with what he said about stagnating and instant success!
