Phil Hay posted the James deal is off. I think Swansea may have been waiting to get Bony and Fer off their books to keep him.
Some interesting signings from teams around us notably Mikel to Boro and King to Derby.

I must say I thought we needed 2 extra players before Saiz and Baker left but hey ho we don't know what's going on inside all these clubs.
All we can do now is believe in what we have got to take us back where we belong. In MB we trust. He has taken us top for 2/ 3 of the season only 1/ 3 to go.
Come on Leeds. We can do it. Wins against Norwich and Boro and nobody will be even thinking about this transfer window.
Come on Leeds. MOT.

Brilliantly summed up Phil, spilt milk. Personally feel very sorry for young James, but pretty sure he will still enjoy a fantastic career and let’s hope it’s with us in the premiership.

2.) 01 Feb 2019 01:17:16
Methinks Swansea were playing games. I don't believe they were negotiating in good faith. They may have mucked us about but their reputation in the transfer market has taken a beating. This will come back to bite them in the bum. Goodness knows what this mess will have done to James' head.

3.) 01 Feb 2019 05:09:12
I don't think the reputation of Swansea will change after today as no one else really cares other than us and swansea. They obviously had a target to get in from transfers and once that was met they could hang on to their best assets hence Fer and James staying. I hope James does what Taylor did with us. stops playing, faking injury etc. There is nothing worse than making a player play when he doesn't want to play for you. Hopefully James steps into that category. They might rue the day. Never the less we will go Marching on. WE ARE LEEDS.

Spot on Kiwi Leeds. I didn’t understand their reasoning in letting him go to a rival during the season. Maybe at the end of season depending on who finishes where. I think they just wanted to distract us from concentrating on promotion.

Fingers crossed that our squad holds out and we go up. Big gamble not strengthening the squad, but if we do go up, then Bielsa is truly a genius.



26 Dec 2018 21:21:28
Amazing victory today but I think some of the guys looked tired after the villa victory. Their will to keep going was phenomenal. But the Question is will we strengthen in January and by how many?
Does anyone know what the situation is with Edmonsen and Dalby at the mo regarding having a striker on the bench?


1.) 26 Dec 2018 22:37:28
If Bielsa thinks they’d be best on the bench, they’d be there
He clearly thinks they’re better with u23s right now.

2.) 27 Dec 2018 13:36:17
They are going to be tired after this period, for me I’d put the whole of the u23’s out for the cup game if they pull off a win great, if not don’t give a toss get out of that cup this season the quicker the better!

3.) 27 Dec 2018 16:42:16
Totally with you on that Ket, but I reckon the FA would punish us for doing that. We need a cup run like a hole in the head right now!

4.) 28 Dec 2018 03:16:33
Yep agreed Ket. I would rest as many 1st teamers as poss to for the fa cup game. Still don't know what's the situation with Dalby and Edmonsen tho. Are they fit?



06 Feb 2018 01:08:30
By Heck looks like we have hit bottom! We are getting that Paul lad as manager apparently. Can't remember his surname . but it's him that hated Leeds growing up as a kid playing football behind his house! Go on Paul and take us back to the promised land and you too can bragg about being a part of Leeds United! Lol. In truth we welcome you Paul and we will give you 100% support. We keep the faith and wish you the best of luck. We all MOT as we are Leeds United. Go on my son!


1.) 06 Feb 2018 12:37:15
Someone with an open mind. And open arms. 😂😂 MOT. 👍👍⚽️⚽️😃



21 Aug 2017 17:55:46
Thoughts Guys? Do you think we have won both away games because of the 4-2-3-1 systems allows us to break quickly whilst the home team is coming on to us whereas at home the away team sits back more? Maybe 4-4-2 at Elland Road or at least for the last 30 mins if it's not going our way?


1.) 21 Aug 2017 19:15:23
PP, I've posted a few times that away from home our set up works well and we have more time and space on the wings. I have seen both home games and it's a lot tougher. But against Fulham TC responded with both Saiz and Hernandez and we looked better. Who we have in the Centre at home is key as well to getting control. The good thing is that TC is a thinker and you can see him trying to work situations out. a good start, a thinking manager and 15 Mill in the back pocket to spend!

2.) 22 Aug 2017 10:59:17
The reason we are so threatening is because in saiz alioski and Hernandez we have 3 naturally central players, so because they look to play centrally they can swap about on the pitch, and they can all push on to help the striker. For me this is the reason that we are seeing more from Hernandez, saiz roofe etc because they are pushing on and getting their shots in and following up in a diamond around the striker, while they can feed him in whoever it may be. Think Shane long fits the bill perfectly here, similarly nahki wells as a cheaper alternative, I don't think we should be looking to cross the ball as much and more focus on our on the ground play.

Both Rosenior and Hendrie admitted Gayle shouldn't have been sent off and Brom should have had a penalty.
I am not getting drawn into this other match but when are the refs going to get these decisions right when there is so much at stake? Time for Var?
Crikey I hope we av a good ref today 🥴.


1.) 11 May 2019 15:27:39
PP They did get them right. Know what I mean?

2.) 11 May 2019 16:44:19
The ref got it wrong unfortunately but when we beat them in the final they can cry back to crossroads land.

3.) 11 May 2019 17:20:21
I do George!



11 May 2019 14:27:21
Ref totally biased towards Villa. Some awful reffing, one rule for them and another for the Brom. As a leeds fan we are used to seeing that!
On another note Leeds fans are everywhere 👍.
Came out of my apartment today here in the Algarve only to see a Leeds towel draped over the balcony 2 floors above me. 😎. MOT.
Getting nervous excitement now. Really hope we can put on a great show.


1.) 11 May 2019 14:39:13
Anyone noticed how Villa carried on attacking when Gayle was on floor clutching his face i know Gayle was acting a bit but I'd love someone to ask Dean Smith why they didn't kick the ball out.

2.) 11 May 2019 14:39:55
Ironic a player who shouldn't be playing scores
Should of done my bet.

3.) 11 May 2019 14:56:32
Dislike villa, Grealish wearing roller blades again!



11 May 2019 12:52:14
Have you all seen the video posted by LUFC about this season.
I have just seen on Twitter.
Good idea - Getting everyone fired up. Some great clips.
Ps. Brom 1-0 v villa. Gayle again!


1.) 11 May 2019 14:12:06
Mr Puncher strikes back!

2.) 11 May 2019 14:28:06
Tom Daley wins a pen to lead 2-1.



11 May 2019 04:08:26
Lets look the future boys, at least the next week or so and forget the past for the time being be it good or bad.
It all starts again today. We MOT.
Score predictions anyone? I am going 2-2 today.


1.) 11 May 2019 08:09:53
Not got a score prediction phil, just hope we can at least match derby today. I think to go to their ground and not get beat would give us the psychological advantage going into the home leg. Most neutrals think or want us to get beat, so time for some siege mentality from us. Would love us to stick it to fat Frank's team again.

2.) 11 May 2019 08:10:01
Nervous and excited in equal measures this morning! Didn’t sleep well last night! Hoping for good performance tonight. Think we need to gain advantage in first leg so that the game is more open at Elland Road! I think Izzy may have a part to play even at this late stage, not sure! Can only watch on the box but will be cheering, shouting, swearing, possibly crying (happy tears) and generally going through the ringer with the rest of you! Come on Leeds, Let’s have it! MOT.

3.) 11 May 2019 09:09:01
Been reading but not posting last few months as fed up with the negativity and arguing. Phil has it right, we start today with everyone behind the team. 3 big games and we will support them to the end whatever happens and go again next season in whatever league we are in. MOT.

4.) 11 May 2019 09:16:10
I'm not sure where we'll get 2 goals from, so I'm going 1-1.

5.) 11 May 2019 09:45:56
Most neutrals over here in sunny Ireland are actually rooting for Leeds to get promoted. I haven’t done a survey though!

6.) 11 May 2019 10:00:55
A 1 0 win Cooper header.

7.) 11 May 2019 12:47:21
Great reply posts guys.
🤞 MOT.

8.) 11 May 2019 12:55:06
Can you please find the time this afternoon to go and do a proper survey please! 😂😂.



07 May 2019 22:12:49
Congrats to Liverpool. They some how always pull it off the hard way. Absolutely magnificent.
Lets follow that on Saturday Leeds⚽️👍.


1.) 07 May 2019 22:38:45
Totally agree PP. Can only dream we can do something like this.

2.) 08 May 2019 08:21:45

I hope you don't mean lose 3-0 away (imagine the posts on here if we do that) then win 4-0 at home.

My dicky ticker couldn't take it.

MOT 💛💙.

The media asked him to say something. He replied "I am Grot" (lol for anyone that's seen the movie Guardians of the Galaxy).


{Ed033's Note - Pity he didn't say, "I am Grot bags" 😋

Hi Guys Not posted for a while but glad to be back. Loved mad Micks comment about alphabet spaghetti to the spurs fan! The positivity I see is great so keep it going everyone. Radz prooving awesome too. In reply to your post I think you can add Hugill from Preston into the mix and today this 6ft 4in u19 Dutch international Jay Roy Grot. It says on his wiki page that Dutch media have confirmed Leeds agreed a fee today. I think this lad with a more proven striker like Rhodes will be great business replacing Wood. Exciting happy days! MOT.

Totally agree MP. And i don't think harrison even touchef him. Read the bbc report on the website. So predictably biased.
Great win whatever.
