16 year old Motherwell winger Stuart McKinstry set to join on a 3 year deal. Another OFF.

Looks like another good prospect. This is a way of investing in players that should be applauded. Gets them into the club, schooled in our ways and we get to have a good look at them and how they conduct themselves.


2.) 12 Apr 2019 11:08:21
Shame we didn't pick João Felix up from Portugal, he's apparently the next big thing. £120M pricetag on him already, he's 19! !


3.) 12 Apr 2019 15:54:12
A 19 year old kid valued at more than double our entire club. Crazy world.


4.) 12 Apr 2019 17:01:07
crazy money. clark must be worth 50 million at least.


5.) 12 Apr 2019 18:15:45
I just hope McKinstry isn't taking the place of one of our youngsters that has been at the club since the age of 9

That was a bit tongue in cheek, but It does ring alarm bells with me that we are buying young men from other clubs and packaging them as home grown just because they played U23s before they made their debuts
Kun
Edmondson
Dalby
Stevens

I am not naive, I realise it's the nature of the business. Would just prefer us to be known for a good scouting policy that a good academy.


6.) 12 Apr 2019 20:19:40
See what you’re saying Axe, and agree to a level. The thing we don’t see is that talent we sign up lower down the age groups. Some kids are just natural talents, and some can be nurtured. I think, from what I’ve seen, we have a good blend and balance.


7.) 12 Apr 2019 23:25:41
Bright

I hope I haven't come across as being at all negative. It wasn't meant that way.

I 100% love our Academy but I do get a little bored with the media rubbish about churning out home grown stars. Half of them are home grown, as in come thro lots of age groups. Half are young men who are identified and bought in. It doesn't make me support those players any less I just get exasperated by the media myth.


8.) 13 Apr 2019 14:43:19
Not at all Axe! Valid concerns mate!


9.) 14 Apr 2019 11:00:02
It's always happened. Kewell for one, Australian, so hardly "home-grown" Gary Kelly, Ian Harte etc Edmonson, Dalby, they're not home-grown but they come through the academy.


10.) 14 Apr 2019 12:08:02
I’m not sure it bothers me really. The aim is to try and secure good prospects when we can, if that’s 10 great but if not, 14, 17, or 29 still better than having to pay full price for established first team players and they still have time to learn the house style.

Mateusz Bogusz has completed his move to Leeds. Two-and-a-half year deal and will start with the u-23s.

alftupper

1.) 30 Jan 2019 14:19:32
Couple of weeks in the U-23s and he'll be on the bench 😀.


2.) 30 Jan 2019 14:24:22
I’m looking forward to seeing him score a few of his worldy pile drivers for the 23’s!


3.) 30 Jan 2019 14:31:49
Subject to international clearence.


4.) 31 Jan 2019 19:09:27
Is there a fee?


 

 

30 Jan 2019 12:50:13
lots of fringe academy lads to leave over the next few days. essentially those who are not good enough.

alftupper

1.) 30 Jan 2019 13:49:28
Makes sense.

Dallas is going to be out for another 6 weeks sources have indicated after a setback with an ankle injury.

alftupper

1.) 28 Jan 2019 13:48:42
Not a quick heeler.


2.) 28 Jan 2019 16:30:05
sole destroying.


3.) 28 Jan 2019 17:08:49
Oooooooof, he should toe the line.


4.) 28 Jan 2019 22:44:14
When he returns to fitness getting back in the team will be no mean feet.


5.) 29 Jan 2019 09:20:49
Dallas should go to my local Timpsons. he has a sign in the window. "Heeling While You Wait"


6.) 29 Jan 2019 11:34:05
You guys have no SOLE, it will be no mean FEET to come back from that injury and we should all pull TOEgether to help him so hope this is the LAST of the LEG pulling as it rANKLES me.


 

 

25 Jan 2019 13:19:56
nothing much happening with regards to Leeds transfer news today other than the report that we are no loger interested in Callum O’Dowda. If we ever were.

alftupper

1.) 25 Jan 2019 13:48:12
Made them spend money by putting his wages up and extending his contract. Strategic games me thinks.


2.) 25 Jan 2019 13:48:42
Alf mate. Party on the other side👍.


3.) 25 Jan 2019 18:27:15
Ooh, now we're after Carvalho? from Wolves on loan! ! ! as if 😂🤣😂.


4.) 25 Jan 2019 19:07:32
Papers need filling Alf and it's silly season as well.

Ah well. Playoffs then.

15 Apr 2019 13:27:29
We need to win the next 2 - if we do that it will be a huge leap forward to automatic.

alftupper

1.) 15 Apr 2019 14:11:24
Lets start on Friday. Wigan will not be a pushover but one we should win at home. Forest may be starting to lose their way, but what a bonus if they can hold the blunts.


2.) 15 Apr 2019 15:24:37
We will have to take every opportunity we make now not the time to let this slip, bam bam get that foot right it the net.


3.) 15 Apr 2019 16:37:50
I'm preying we can win both this weekend and blunts loose both. Job done for promotion, then go for what AL gas been saying this season! 🤞.


4.) 15 Apr 2019 18:20:07
Going for 4 points to leeds and 2 for Sheffield this Easter time.


 

 

14 Apr 2019 18:00:13
Are Norwich starting to bottle it? 4 pts the gap they have to be looking over their shoulder now surely?

alftupper

1.) 14 Apr 2019 19:32:45
Hi Alf, do you think Norwich will need Binoculars to see someone so close behind them? On another note, do you think that Fat Frank will need Binoculars to see someone so far ahead of of him? Sorry for the mischevious nature of my post, but I am that way out today. I think it was one of you miscreants on here who said that if we wished to spy on Fat Frankie, we could have merely loitered outside Greggs, superb, you bad mankeees! Bad mankees! Anyhow, drunken ramblings aside, MOT!


2.) 14 Apr 2019 20:30:14
A massive ask, but 4 more wins might get the title, but I will be more than happy with second.


 

 

11 Apr 2019 08:45:53
Nobody wants it do they? Both of us conspiring to throw it away.

alftupper

1.) 11 Apr 2019 11:45:46
The nerves kick in at this stage of the season, impossible not to think about how close you are. Every possible error is magnified in its importance. Even Norwich were effected.


 

 

10 Apr 2019 09:04:16
U23s play Newcastle at Guiseley on the 23rd April - anyone up for it?

alftupper

1.) 10 Apr 2019 11:05:54
Hope so Alf! I’ve been in the wars since the Millwall game, bronchial infection and bad back! Might said the Elland Road Under 23 game but in the mend now!


2.) 10 Apr 2019 14:58:14
Spaniard Bad virus going around Leeds. Get better soon.


3.) 10 Apr 2019 19:18:30
Thanks George, the infection effected my typing! Missed the Elland Road under 23 game but on the mend!

8 games is loads - if we win all of ours we will be up almost guaranteed but can we win all of ours?

3 games like the ones against Derby, West Brom or Sheff Weds are possible - ER bouncing for the semi final, Wembley bouncing and WHITE for the final? Come on - its do-able.

We have a great opportunity to prepare for the playoffs now unlike other teams who are still fighting for a place. Let's focus on that and make sure we are 100% right mentally and physically fit ready for the final push.

I love the playoffs. Don't really like losing in them but the idea is brilliant and its a great showpiece. Why not give the team in 6th the opportunity to go up? It keeps it interesting for all those teams below 3rd or 4th for much longer and keeps the league much more competitive. The team in 3rd will always complain about it but what if you are the team in 6th?

Btw we are not guaranteed 3rd yet so that wouldn't necessarily be us anyway.

There are 3 games left. Any professional footballer who needs a kick up the backside at this stage when we were in 2nd with 4 left should be sacked.
