I see Brian Montenegro is getting interest from PL clubs, Norwich and Brighton. Big mistake by Mcdermott not playing him when we needed goals. He has not stopped scoring since he left us. Pleased for the lad always liked watching him play for U23s.


1.) 08 Dec 2019 19:39:02
I remember seeing him and posting he'd become a big player for us soon.

2.) 09 Dec 2019 11:08:06
Brainless Brian Mc put paid to that George. We were struggling to score and i think Monte had scored about 13 in as many games for U23s playing on wing. I posted regularly he should be in first team but did mad Mac listen no he did not.



05 Aug 2019 19:55:27
If it is true that when Roofe leaves we are going for Kent my opinion is that is an excellent upgrade. Much as i liked Roofe Kent has a lot more potential and is a class act waiting to happen. Lot of competition for those wing berths unless Bubs has got other ideas for him.


1.) 05 Aug 2019 20:17:58
Doesn’t make sense. Loads of wingers with 1 striker in the squad.

2.) 05 Aug 2019 20:48:55
Kent can play central.

3.) 05 Aug 2019 21:31:26
So can Costa and Harrison.


4.) 05 Aug 2019 21:37:11
Think MB has ideas about a few playing up front, including Roberts, Harrison and costa. The ability to switch players from the wing to the striker role during a match can cause chaos for opposition defences, and is something I think we will see during the course of this season. Add Kent to the equation, and we can really mix it up, and in attack, we have real strength!

5.) 05 Aug 2019 21:45:20
He's no way a striker.

6.) 06 Aug 2019 06:18:33
We’ve all? ( me included) forgotten we’ve got a fella called Tyler. Hope the lad has an injury free run.

7.) 06 Aug 2019 06:53:55
While Kent is a winger, we all remember what Wenger did with that winger Henry?

8.) 06 Aug 2019 12:20:49
Yes, I do. Since when did an octopus eat a crocodile l?



03 Aug 2019 21:20:16
Rumoured we are after Colidio and Nolan from Inter. Def need some more in, not sure how long it would take to get them Bielsa fit.


1.) 03 Aug 2019 22:03:10
I read that to, don't know much about either of them so hope there upto it. I would of preferred experienced guys.



09 Jul 2019 20:03:08
Read Danny Mills reason for Pontus leaving. Its what club told him. Pontus wanted more time off for holiday Bielsa said no. If the boss says i want you back at work you go back to work. Not sure what position is with Unions and players holidays but we know Bub has a strict code he adheres to and so did Pontus. All a bit childish in my eyes but in any job there is a pecking order.


1.) 09 Jul 2019 21:40:12
It's all been badly handled in George opinion. If he wanted more time off, why was he training at all with Malmo? Why not fine the player for employee breach? Was it lucky timing then that the 🐝 came in with an offer? This has been a dispute brewing for some time.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 23:13:43
Agree George think this just helped him on his way. Could have been settled with a fine. Down to Bub this one i think.



06 Jul 2019 23:05:34
Lot of posters turning against Pontus who was a god two weeks ago. Sad to lose him but if he is out of favour and happy to go so be it. What does make me mad is we are selling him to one of our rivals for peanuts. Captained his country and one of the best CBs in the championship and he is only worth 5mill, total joke. Who are we going to replace him with. White may have been able to play alongside Pontus but not with Coops would stand no chance against crosses. Sorry but if we do not get a quality CB in this is a really bad bit of business.

Agree also Wilks going cheap if 1mill is the price. Young talented and if Lowe is worth 2-3 mill he is worth nearer 2mill whatever problems he has in his personal life, they can be sorted, i suppose no one on here got in with the wrong crowd when you were young. Said on an earlier post i was expecting one of Roofe, Pontus or KP to be sold so not too surprised but was expecting Halme to be with us if only for his height
Thing is if we had put a proper valuation on Pontus of at least 10mill it would have made sense but looks like he has gone cheap to get him out of the door.


1.) 07 Jul 2019 02:52:29
Another good post. I believe Pontus was critical of management from the January transfer window and it eventually showed in his attitude. Big boots to fill. Believe we are considering Bielik from the Gooners.

2.) 07 Jul 2019 04:48:41
I agree the price seems cheap (although that will be a profit for us) but it there is bad blood best to get rid rather than upset the depressing room. Rubbish but that’s the modern game. Mate bumped into Orta yesterday and he says we are looking at maybe bringing in 1 more. Didn’t say what position but I can believe a CB.

3.) 07 Jul 2019 04:57:32
Does the magic hat go with the sale? If so that alone has to be worth another 3 mil?

4.) 07 Jul 2019 09:17:36
I actually feel sorry for Pontus and feel some of the criticism on here and elsewhere is undue. The guy obviously got Leeds and fully bought into the fervour of the fans. He obviously also drank in the love for him from the fans and gained energy from this - presumably partly because he had been such a peripheral figure in the latter part of his last season at his beloved Malmo and during his one and a half seasons at Torino.

Whether his exclusion from the team in the playoff semi-final games was down to his reaction to the Villa goal or not who knows, but he was clearly wounded by this, particularly for the game at Elland Road, and especially following what transpired. He had probably dreamed (literally) of scoring the winning goal against Villa in the final - and why not, 'cos he almost always scored against Villa. He would probably have sweated blood in that game to have endured we got to Wembley. But yet he didn't even get on the pitch, and had to watch on with the fans as most of those picked fell apart and surrendered meekly to the loathed Fat Frank and his (former) team - including that wan**er Keogh who played a key role - being allowed to dominate in both boxes.

It's fairly easy to imagine how upset Pontus felt at all this - not just for himself, but for the fans - without seeing the pictures of him slumped alone at the side of the pitch. People criticise him for not being with the rest of the squad to console them etc. But having seen his and our dreams lost in such pathetic fashion, particularly with such mistakes made by the player specifically picked ahead of him, I can understand why he felt the need to be alone with his thoughts.

I can also imagine that there may be concerns over whether with such hurt and disappoinment he can fully reconcile himself with the management and some of his teammates at Leeds, and that is felt best for there to be a parting of the ways.

I don't for one moment think he actually wants to go to a Brentford, but that may currently be his only choice. As for the magic hat - of course it shouldn't be included in the sale, but rather be an exhibit in the Leeds United Museum. Thanks for the memories Pontus.

5.) 07 Jul 2019 10:33:05
The question is has he asked to leave is MB had enough, don't know what's gone on behind closed doors, sorry but 5.5 mill won't get us a dive 1 defender good enough, personally club should of tried to work it out, think he is no more than a lower level premier player at best, but will be a big loss if not replaced,

6.) 07 Jul 2019 11:56:03
IF the situation has broken down irretrevably the so be it. My one thought on this is that the bosses word is final however if you cannot harvest such passion (which often comes with a hot head and a fiery tongue) you are in danger in fielding a team with no passion. A team with no (controlled) aggression and ultimately a team with no stand up and be counted leaders. A team of yes men. Quite rightly if he is a cancer in the dressing room then he should be removed however a, good, manager should not let it get to that. If the situation had been simmering for some while then it beggars belief why we let Halme go? Surely his height would have been invaluable in times of need if we were to go 5 across the back. Still there is time, out there somewhere must be a Pontus clone to instill grit in the back line.

7.) 07 Jul 2019 13:28:03
Tellingly after the direby he said he’d only leave if Leeds sold him

So I suspect things were brewing

Our new style left him exposed at time but he’s better than the current level we play at

In that mad 20 mins vs the sheep we needed a leader or two. I don’t think it’s in his character to be that

Nor do we seem able to sign one

Good technical players only get to play if someone is getting their nose dirty

Which leads me on to Vinne. So sorry for his loss.

8.) 07 Jul 2019 17:32:52
He’s a character, not a leader. Love him, but you can’t have a disruptive influence in the squad.

Well two points dropped but it was bound to happen at some point. Still do not know how to shut a game down. Bit strange to bring Pascal on when he did. But hey ho we are ten clear of third and i think a win at Fulham will make a statement. Disappointing to lose that lead but we move on and maybe its what we needed to remind us nothings easy in this division.


1.) 15 Dec 2019 08:36:11
Yep it’s never easy and you cannot relax for a moment.

{Ed001's Note - are you still talking about us editors alf?}



09 Dec 2019 10:36:59
December games look interesting. Think next three games are crucial for Fulham to push on. Away to PNE and Brentford not easy. If we can widen gap before we play them think they will be feeling the pressure. Would settle for the draw against them but would fancy us to beat them. Think we will extend our unbeaten run into new year then its onwards and upwards. Can some one slip Bowen some laxatives before the match please.


1.) 09 Dec 2019 13:08:44
Just hope that we are sitting a comfortable second come January. Let the Baggies take the pressure of top spot. So long as we have a 15 point gap to third I will be happy.



08 Dec 2019 15:46:39
Terrific win, keeps the momentum going. Another clean sheet and two goals away from home. No we did not have it all our own way but we never looked troubled and lads looked confident from the start. Not going to nitpick at performances as it was a team win and good to see Pablo back in the groove. Nice gap opened up to third and with two home games coming up could maybe widen that gap. Not bothered what Brom do we can't do anything about their performances only our own. Got to say whole team look to be up for it this time, and nice to see Casey on show. He has come on a lot as he only got in U23s this season I was not expecting him to be around first team so early but Bubs must have spotted some thing he likes. let's remember guys Berardi does not ask to play at CB but gives his all when he does. Onwards and upwards.


1.) 08 Dec 2019 16:28:57
agree 100% but not sure about never being troubled for me our keeper was motm and made a few good saves at 0-0 and a wonder save which was world class at 1-0

think it was more a case of got away with rather than played well. i think a few teams would of punsihed that line up

as for beradi i agree and fair play to the lad but he just ain't good enough. I respect him but in a perfect world he never plays for us again and in jan is sold to team at his level like Barnsley where he can play right back

I just still have a fear of us being in the playoffs and him playing and against the better teams in the play offs he won't cope. just like last year

we need a cb and for me I'd rather see one of our young guns play mid feild as i honestly think we have maybe 4 really great prospects in this position.

2.) 08 Dec 2019 17:13:11
Disagree with never troubled, keeper made some good saves and Huddersfield missed some good chances.

3.) 08 Dec 2019 17:57:55
I see your point about the chances they had but to be honest i felt confident they would not score which is a big plus from how we finished last season. Agree would rather have had Ben at CB and some one else tried at DM but we kept a clean sheet so all good on the day. Thought Diaz would have stepped up into KP role and was surprised to see him go. Kennah will be knocking on the door soon.

4.) 08 Dec 2019 19:32:45
Bermo I like most of what you have to say but why do you always feel the need to pick on a player? Phillips Beradi are the obvious two. Yet for some reason you never slag off the keeper no matter. Going back to that dodgy Italian keeper and peacock Farrell you never put them down even after multiple mistakes. I realize you’re a keeper but you take the union too far!

5.) 08 Dec 2019 21:38:31
good point cork i do tend to back the keepers

i did say BPF had to go, i felt most of the goals we conceeded first half of last season were down to him, think he had some wonderful moments and great games but had a big mistake in him as well

with kiko i hate the fact he sometimes plays as an attacking midfeidler but i think that is down to the gaffer, i did feel he had a quality which he has shown this season even if the odd walkabout does happen

to even it up here is a few leeds keepers who i will throw under the bus

kasper anker gankran. aka the hunter. how was he our keeper for so long

andy i played for liverpool even though my wrists are made of jelly londergan

paul if he can play for leeds so can i ruhapka.

6.) 09 Dec 2019 14:13:21
I'd add shane Higgs to that list. Lonergan actually was fairly decent in his first spell.

7.) 10 Dec 2019 09:45:10
i quite liked higgs. made of glass but when he played i thought he did decent job for that level. we also had a little fella david something i think. he was an amazing keeper but too short so couldn't get to much, if he was three inches taller he would of played in prem.



05 Dec 2019 21:09:50
U18s 3-1 Hull in Youth Cup
Belter from Shergill and two for Cresswell.
Creswell MOM, captains performance. Haugland not far behind. Good performance all round from Kumwenda up front, Gibbon, Burlace. Fully deserved. Couple dropped back to their age group for this one from U23s. MKinstry being one who put in a great shift. Into the fourth round let's see who we get.




04 Dec 2019 10:54:58
Leeds United U16s 13- Mansfield U17s 0. What a result for the lads. Now let's see the first team emulate that scoreline. Lot of young talent coming through lads. that's after beating Burnley 6-2.


1.) 04 Dec 2019 13:06:07
Great scoreline.

It was a confidence boost for the lad. Doubt if he will be a first team regular any time soon. Bubs must rate him and put him in to motivate him. He has done it with Gotts and Leif in previous games. Good management for me its how young ones should progress. Bubs has overlooked the youth and played it safe most of the time so i am happy he is introducing more of them to the matchday atmosphere and pressure. Folks been saying we need CB cover so why not him if he is good enough. Personally thought he would need more time but will trust Bubs judgement.

Rate Casey but did not expect him in the first team so soon, just moved up to U23s, Bubs must have seen something. Cresswell one for the future as well. Pascal a bit like Coops in that he can really impress one minute then next game make silly mistakes. Consistency not there yet.

Vydra goes where he can get a payday Cork. Has no loyalty to any club he plays for, guess that's why they are happy to get rid of him.

I rate Vydra but he turned us down so no time for him now. Seems to be a bit of a mercenary with no loyalties except to money. there's a young lad called Edmonson who is as good as him and a lot younger.

Think we have the money to buy one player in Jan and would love it to be Eze or Bowen as Pablo can not last forever. Can see us getting two more loans in if Eddie and JC go back. Depends on Radz and if he is willing to gamble a bit. e sold 30mill worth of players and not used a lot of that money yet. Will he hang on to it to pay for Costa or go all out for promotion. Know which i would do.

Shows how the fitness regime pays off for not just one but three players to sprint the whole pitch in the final minutes of a game.

Yes we have had a young bench for last couple of games. Nice to see him having a good look at the young ones as you say might need one or two later in season. Good to give them a few minutes out there if possible. Think he may have realised 18 players will not get you through the season.
