I knew that if we were patient enough and kept taking the blue pills, that something big would pop up and take the attention away from Soygate! I'm not being hard on Big Alan but I think Penisgate is bigger! Bit of a cock up posting photos of your asset on Twitter in error! Easy mistake Big Al, I've done it a few times myself with messages to Fat Frank and the Vicar! Cum on everyone now there's a new scandal to talk about!

Me too. Havnt a clue what you lot talking about.

Leo and Martyn Type in to your preferred engine of search "Alan Hardy penis".


7.) 29 Jan 2019 15:04:01
Been a bit picky George but it's not like he's bringing the game into disrepute is it? Any way the efl are too busy looking at ways to punish teams that don't break any laws. And lastly why are you typing 'alan hardy penis' into your search engine George?


8.) 29 Jan 2019 15:36:01
Martyn I didn't but you did 😆😆.

What a balls up, count himself very lucky he wasn’t wearing binoculars at the time! Still think Harvey will go on him though.

Good luck to Will Huffer, months loan to Barney, national league. Could even be involved in an FA Cup tie on Monday. Good experience for him. Imagine that means Miazak plays for the under 23s. Again good run out for him. Unless the plan is for Bailey to play at under 23s for game time.

Spanishleeds

1.) 25 Jan 2019 22:36:48
Would he be cup tied?
Not sure if he was on the bench for us and if that would even matter. Anyone know?


2.) 26 Jan 2019 09:46:18
There was an FA Cup specific rule that said that you weren’t cup tied if you were on the bench and didn’t appear. I’m assuming that’s still in place anyone know?


3.) 26 Jan 2019 11:41:28
Probably a clause saying unless it's Leeds then even the tea lady counts.


4.) 27 Jan 2019 01:32:13
The Barnet manager (only Tony Currie's nephew) reckons the England coaches think highly of him :) another one for the future.


5.) 27 Jan 2019 07:51:01
I like Huffer, he talks and shouts a lot, whoever is in front of him. Think he could grow into a very good keeper.


6.) 27 Jan 2019 13:37:41
Sounds like my missus. Talking and shouting I mean.

Said over a year ago future England player.


 

 

17 Jan 2019 11:18:50
Welcome Kiko! For me this is a world class appointment. Obviously a skilful player capable of the Bielsa way but more than that, coming from immersion in one of the worlds greatest clubs. It's a classy appointment that brings real strength and confidence to the GK group. This could be a massive benefit to us until the season end but also into the future. Well done all involved!

And to Bailey, thank you for everything you have done this year. Take up the challenge and use this as a motivation to up your game and learn with him. if you keep your place because you show you are better than him, then good for you!

Marcelo said any appointment has to be an improvement on what we have, Kiko clearly is.

Spanishleeds

1.) 17 Jan 2019 11:36:44
Good to have some positive news. Welcome aboard Kiko!


2.) 17 Jan 2019 15:10:23
We used to sarcastically remark that an Orta signing was "One for the future" meaning they were of no use now and we could just hope that they may come good some time in the never never. Now we can remark that they are "One for the future" meaning that we can use them now but they will still be up to the mark once we achieve promotion.


3.) 17 Jan 2019 15:41:21
I agree Kiwi. I’m surprised there hasn’t been more reaction to this appointment. To me it really is a very positive signing. Without being unkind, the defense will now have someone with experience that they can look up to. This guy has mixed it at the highest levels. Ok bench or third more recently, but still involved in the training sessions and training and learning with two of the best in the world.

It will raise Baileys game, like Hernadez with Clarke and Bailey will also be able to help Kiko with Championship experience.

Are people happy with this as a sign of investment in one player? Not asking about the whole window but just this one addition?


4.) 17 Jan 2019 17:07:40
To be honest, Spanish, I think, even if we get no more through the door (which I'm hoping isn't the case) , Kiko plugs the biggest gap which has been most apparent so far this season. BPF has been excellent for his years and given we're the team with a target on our backs, however, Kiko will be the loudest voice in that box and command our back line. Bailey will kick on in coming years, I have no doubt about that.

Would love to see a winger or two, throughly underwhelmed by Harrison, but loads of potential in the kids coming through and if the past week has convinced me of anything, it's that I have 100% faith in Bielsa and his plans!

ALAW MOT!


5.) 17 Jan 2019 17:29:42
Agree behave, and have a bit of faith in Harrison, looked better over the last few weeks. Honestly think JC is giving a bit of a encouragement to the other wide men. You don’t only learn from those around you who are older. He is showing the way in the wing and perhaps encouraging the others to drop their shoulder a bit and give it a go.


6.) 17 Jan 2019 17:32:06
KC welcome to the sunshine band we will march on together.


7.) 17 Jan 2019 19:32:04
You’re right Spanish, it’s a huge signing, and rather than BPF being disappointed, he should look at it as a great opportunity to develop with someone who has been coached by, and alongside some of the best in the world. He and Huffer should both move forward in leaps and bounds over the next couple of years!


8.) 17 Jan 2019 21:55:54
I see what you did there Boston! 👏🏻.


 

 

14 Jan 2019 17:08:28
Very good under 23 performance today!

Brown just about lasted the 90, clearly tired in the last 15 but showed some classy touches and good finishes.

I mentioned the need to get 2 of Aapo, Hugo and Pascal playing together regularly. Well today the played all three with Pascal, left back ish and for the first half Pearce on the left wing.

Aapo has a great game solid in defense and pinging some great passes forward.

In the second half Robbie Gotts replaced Shackleton in midfield and Davis replaced Pearce. Those two changes made a real difference. Gotts, a real dynamo, great going forward. David more effective than Pearce.

KP played a full game, calm and assured and Jordan Stevens had one of the best games I've seen from him

Kun played up front and had a few good opportunities.

2-0 and particularly in the second half we should have had a fair few more as the post was hit a few times.

Brown looking better and getting close to being able to come off the bench, but I think he will have another 90 mins next week at least.

You can see the confidence that Aapo, Gotts and Davis have got from their time with the first team.

I turned round during the game and Pablo, Alioski and Beradi were stood right behind me. Lots of the first team drifted about watching the game at various times.

As it stands tonight Leeds too at Chanpionship, under 23 and under 18 level! Sweet!

Spanishleeds

1.) 14 Jan 2019 17:14:28
I do like Gotts

Fair play to for first team players going to watch future and present team mates. That’s class

That’s the current ethos going through this club and a massive reason for why we will succeed.


2.) 14 Jan 2019 18:43:34
Love your reports on the under 23 games Spanish. Thanks for these and please keep them coming. I'm either getting old or dead lazy because I'm finding the trip to see these myself a bit burdensome. But I really do enjoy getting the inside juice on how the players are going.


3.) 14 Jan 2019 19:09:24
Did they instantly recognise you and say "hello Spainish, we like your reports"?


4.) 14 Jan 2019 19:26:58
Kiwi, I enjoy the games. It’s interesting apart from the game, who you see and what you hear in the chat going on around.

Next Monday it’s the Premier league Cup against Southampton, tough game and it’s been moved to Tadcaster Albion. 7pm kick off, £3 entry, worth it! Possibly get to see Brown again and one or two of the other returners in addition to a whole bunch of great regulars.


5.) 14 Jan 2019 19:27:19
Thanks Spanish for the match/ player report. All your posts are considered and sensible. I can always tell they are your posts before seeing the name at the bottom. Great to find out about the youngsters/ returnees. Keep them coming mot.


6.) 14 Jan 2019 23:29:39
Tewit, it took me a few seconds to register who they were! I would have liked to practice my Spanish with Pablo, but the words didn’t come out! At the Barnsley game, I did manage to have a brief conversation with Carlos in Spanish before the game started! I don’t think he was expecting it!

Down south, Thanks, I’d encourage anyone to get to the games if you can. You get a really interesting perspective on the club and you are so much closer to the action. And to be honest now, the quality of the teams we are putting out and the football were playing is great.


7.) 15 Jan 2019 10:06:27
Spanish. Think we all love your reports, long may you keep posting them.

Two thoughts. 1.Do you fancy being Marcelo's new interpreter? I have heard some people think that he does not get the nuances of what Marcelo really says, particularly in the "Spygate" interview. Do you agree.

2. You say at the U23's games, "who you see and what you hear in the chat going on around" is interesting. Wouldn't that interest "spys" from another club? Actually your not a "spy" from another club are you?


8.) 15 Jan 2019 10:09:42
Love reading your reviews on U23's Spanish, think it was yourself who mentioned Clarke some time ago if so you have a good eye.


 

 

07 Jan 2019 22:49:15
One more thought after seeing Bielsa at the under 23s tonight. I imagine that his feelings about recruitment for the first team are also effected by what he sees at under 23 and to a lesser extent under 18s. Because his emphasis is on training in and drilling patterns, playing style and fitness.

He can oversee that in all three teams. He can try out different ideas and formations. We have already seen what he has been able to do with largely last years first team, imagine how he feels when he sees two more full squads of young players keen to learn and impress. Given his work ethic, I'm sure he is constantly thinking about how he makes the most of that developing talent.

So the small first team squad, is a little bit of a myth as he draws on the other talent available that is constantly being prepared in the same way. Keep buying good young players with the right attitude and you build up the conveyer belt.

Top that up then with additional first team ready players when there is a clear gap. Possibly the speed of our success has caught everyone a bit by surprise, but if we keep this going each year for the next few years we are going to be able to harvest from a crop of fine young players, playing in the right way.

Spanishleeds

1.) 08 Jan 2019 00:36:32
Good points well made Mr Spanish, I hope also that coaches and backroom staff are being "shown the way" for when the inevitable happens and Bub decides his project is finished. Would be good to have continuity in that department as well, recruitment from within.


2.) 08 Jan 2019 13:03:47
completely agree Spanish - this is what i believe the long term plan is.


3.) 08 Jan 2019 13:55:09
Great posts, all. 👍🏻.


4.) 08 Jan 2019 21:34:47
Very happy that everyone agrees!


5.) 09 Jan 2019 06:23:21
Totally agree Spanish, he’s building a whole club

Sadly the idea is to develop players to sell on as more come through as we do not have the money to buy the completed article

So new players coming in will be “ ones for the future” with a resale value

On the plus side, talented kids will want to go to Leeds because they know they will work under MB and unlike certain clubs, yes I mean you Chelsea, will get a chance to play.

Under 23s tonight, not in Nottingham, watching on the App. Douglas and Beradi in defense so Oduor pushed up the wing with Bobby Kamwa in the other side and Kun leading the line! Bogusz debuts in midfield with another newbie at this level Haugland on the bench. Edmondson on the bench so looks like not in the squad for tomorrow.

Spanishleeds

1.) 22 Feb 2019 19:52:04
Bit of a Leeds story in the first half, some good play, nice passing moves, a number of chances and we are losing 2-0 at half time. They have scored from their two chances. To be fair Harrison Male is in goal, the under 18 goalie I think, and certainly the first goal caught him out a bit. He’s getting used to this level. Bogusz looks good, fights for the ball, creative, good support for Macalmont in the centre. Oduor looking good as well. Should at least be drawing this one!


2.) 22 Feb 2019 20:59:58
Good second half comeback, Douglas goes off and then Beradi, Edmondson comes and we change shape at the back and the front. Some really good play second half, Kamwa scored and an own goal got us back into it. After that both sides had chances to win it with Edmundson having a cracking drive just tipped over by the goalie. 2-2. Lots of positives. Edmundson looking sharper and is offering something different . Bogusz looks very good. His first appearance in the team and playing where he has to get used to those around him. Strong in the ball but creates and moves well. Looks like he can definitely be a fixture in the under 23s and versatile in the middle. Not much time to rest, back on in the cup on Monday night at Guisley. Wonder if we might see Jack Clarke getting a run out.


 

 

18 Feb 2019 19:24:37
200 k fine, scandal, that's 8 weeks of Izzy Brown or a good under 23 player!

Spanishleeds

 

 

18 Feb 2019 12:28:54
So Roofe is out for a period, looks like Roofe and Bamford just not destined to play together much! Good opportunity for Bamford. Interesting to see if we push Izzy a bit more now to increase the options at 10!

Spanishleeds

1.) 18 Feb 2019 12:43:46
Beradi, Brown and Dallas all starting today for the under 23s, looks like Roberts rested from the squad perhaps in response to Roofe news. Edmondson starts up front with Kun on the bench and looks like Brown in the 10, we shall see. Healthy little crowd building in the west stand with a fair few kids. Looks like the news has spread!


2.) 18 Feb 2019 13:21:25
Brown could now be crucial at 10, depending how long Roofe is out, which is tbc.


3.) 18 Feb 2019 13:36:55
Don’t rule out baby shack coming at 10

He’s nippy and direct

Would scare tiring defenders to death.


4.) 18 Feb 2019 15:07:09
Aye, good point Woody!


5.) 18 Feb 2019 16:58:39
Big fan of the Shack. He has performed every time he has taken the field.


6.) 18 Feb 2019 18:21:42
Might be a bit of a silver lining. No one has played against Brown and Bamford so may surprise a few of them. Shacks is worth a second half in any game.


 

 

18 Feb 2019 09:00:31
According to the fixtures list, we do have an under 23 game at Elland Road today 1pm. No mention of it at all on the official site. I'm assuming it hasn't been moved to Thorp Arch as has happened before.

Not sure why we don't publicize it a bit more. We've taken over 3000 to watch the under 23s at Tadcaster and we have a great team, up at the top of the table, needing support and a few first teamers playing. And I believe it's school half term this week!

Spanishleeds

1.) 18 Feb 2019 09:58:09
Flashscores. co. uk still has it listed for Elland Rd 1.00pm.


2.) 18 Feb 2019 11:02:15
I’m here, the games on! Tickets available, feels a bit like we are keeping it a secret.


3.) 18 Feb 2019 18:15:50
Thought Dallas had a good half, playing with passion and getting forward. Gotts again had a top game. Brown looks ready to me at just the right time. Diaz defended well, stood in the way of a point blank rocket, that must have hurt, some good passing from him as well. Mcalmont improved as the game went on. Stevens for me is a great talent. A lot of his work goes unnoticed and he showed great composure for his goal. BPF not too impressed with him, positioning and use of the ball erratic needs to improve if he wants his first team spot back, hope he is not sulking.


 

 

17 Feb 2019 14:14:27
Congratulations Clarke Oduor and Robbie Gotts. Deserved contracts to two good youngsters! Both fit the Nielsa model, fit and very versatile . Good luck fellas.

They fit the Bielsa model as well ;) well done boys.


2.) 17 Feb 2019 16:56:04
Spanish.

As our U23's expert are they, in your opinion, Premiership material?


3.) 17 Feb 2019 20:12:36
Tewit, very difficult to predict who could make that jump from under 23s to premiership! It’s hard enough from under 23s to championship. Also we would probably have a healthy debate on here about how many of the first team squad can make the jump!

A lot of doubt about this sighting, might well be an old photo from a previous injury posted to cause mischief. Would appear a bit weird for news of a serious injury to be broken first by a player walking through the city with an obvious injury!

Don’t mind being a 2 bit outfit, as long as we stay in the top two and get promoted! The most important bit of business we did this year is Bielsa and his crew! We spent serious money there and it’s being rewarded! We are bringing on under 23 players and showing that we are a club where good young players can shine, develop and get real opportunities. If that’s 2 bit, wonderful!
