What does everyone think about the Chad Hurley (you tube and 49rs) tweet showing a 'de paul university ' sign and then tweeting ' it's a sign? Could be nothing, but a bit weird if it is.


1.) 31 Jan 2021 13:44:01
Well let’s hope that “weird” comes true, eh!?

2.) 31 Jan 2021 16:05:49
Was there a gap?
De Paul or DePaul?
Fairly sure there is such a university.
Havent seen the tweet though.

3.) 01 Feb 2021 02:57:39
It was captioned something like 'well that's a sign' or 'is this a sign? ' Canada. Unless he has invested pretty big though (which nothing seems to suggest) , I don't see what he would know/ have to do with a potential €40m transfer pursuit.

4.) 01 Feb 2021 10:55:59
I wonder if the guy is a joker.
Hopefully something in it but can't see it before summer.



31 Mar 2020 15:45:34
I see the QSI takeover has reared it's head again. Apparently a £120M takeover is in the offing sooner rather than later, (from a source) .
Don't know if it Heinz or HP?


1.) 31 Mar 2020 16:58:26
hopefully Heinz.

2.) 01 Apr 2020 09:00:39
Daddies for me. (Or is that a different subject!? ) 🤔😲😬.

3.) 01 Apr 2020 12:54:06
Bring out the branston.

4.) 01 Apr 2020 15:13:57
cant see anywhere near £120M though unless that is if we are promoted. £80M maybe.



06 Nov 2019 08:27:01
The QSI takeover link seems to be popping it's head up again. The thing is whenever it happens no-one seems to deny it.




08 Jul 2019 21:59:01
Pontus gone then!
Maybe we'll never know the real reason, but just been reading that Monk dropped him for the good of the team. I'd forgotten about that.
Hopefully we have someone better lined up. New kit out tomorrow, so you never know? 🙏.


1.) 09 Jul 2019 06:10:00
He’s one man and no man is bigger than lufc.

2.) 09 Jul 2019 07:37:22
Pontus has come out and said it's to balance the books for ffp, as to it this is true or not, who knows. Not like he is going to admit that it's down to his attitude and why we not held out for a better price of we need the money. How can a team like Brentford pay him upwards of £30k baffles me.

3.) 09 Jul 2019 15:23:33
Is Pontus spinning it?

He is not lying about the "FFP need" if Leeds need his transfer fee in order to pay for the new centre back they had identified prior to his sale.

It feels like Jansson's behaviour at the tail end of the season may have been the straw that broke the camel's back. The powers that be may have already looked and identified a more team orientated centre back

Looking at the management's track record they tend to sell before they buy (Viera before Bamford; Clarke before Costa) .

So I put to you, the jury, Pontus had to leave as soon as possible even if we lost a couple of million over a projected fee. We need his money in order to secure his successor. Otherwise someone else may get in before us.

As a business model I can understand it works well for businesses with limited capital, making best use of the cash flow model.

4.) 09 Jul 2019 20:27:55
Good post Axe.



18 Jun 2019 13:58:43
More talk on Clarke to Tottenham today. Looks like it could be happening. TBH I'd be happy with £20m for him. Don't get me wrong, I don't want him to go, but I don't see him being a player that is vital to getting us promoted.


1.) 18 Jun 2019 14:44:07
I tend to agree unless he features more than he did last season. He made an impact before Christmas when he was coming on but then after his mysterious illness (some kind of disagreement with the club perhaps after the Jan window? ) early Feb he barely played. Do we really have 3/ 4 years to develop him or do we need players who can make a difference right now?

2.) 18 Jun 2019 17:12:31
20MIL? Two 10mill wingers in his place. Go for it.

3.) 18 Jun 2019 18:34:55
£10m needed every year just to balance the books

£5 in reserve for fees, wages, taxes

£5m to spend on players.

4.) 18 Jun 2019 18:57:38
Sorry but I don't wanna see Clarke go. Seen too many of our youngsters go in the past and now we have a manager that believes in youth. Bad move for me! Saying that we might loan him back maybe?

5.) 18 Jun 2019 20:37:55
£20m for a young player with flashes of talent but not proven consistently is good business. Indeed, in games when he came back late in the season looked ineffective at times.

If it happens tho, Radz needs to notably adapt his 'loans and free agents only' mantra. That won't fly following (if this goes through) the club's second biggest transfer fee after Rio. Don't expect or want to break the bank, however especially don't want to see 1 yr loans bust this hopeful investment on a 1 yr promotion folly if we don't make it.

CB possibly Ben White (buy now not loan) Costa (buy) a second winger maybe Harrison given how much Bielsa seems to rate him (buy) and a central attacking playmaker with a killer pass to replace what we lost from Saiz leaving.

Sell, loan or in must desperate mutually terminate those doing nothing for the club (Ideguichi - looks nearly done - Saiz, Sacko, Cibicki, O'Kane, Anita, De Bock) . Jury out on if Casilla is leaving or not.

Use that to give new contracts to those deserving of them Roofe springs to mind (and purchase a new keeper if we do indeed sell Casilla) = fair.

6.) 18 Jun 2019 22:17:18
Mysterious illness? Stop talking nonsense.

7.) 19 Jun 2019 08:55:25
What was it then Cork?

8.) 19 Jun 2019 09:24:02
Ealing, spot on.

9.) 19 Jun 2019 22:00:17
Sorry I thought you were saying he was pretending to be ill! My mistake and I apologize.

If Costa and Roberts were the answer, what was the question?


1.) 14 Feb 2021 18:02:49
Costa has talent and has scored.

2.) 14 Feb 2021 18:16:58
Rate costa I’d play him a lot more.

3.) 14 Feb 2021 18:27:41
Hes skilled but too weak for me.
Impact sub at this level.



31 Jan 2021 16:06:19
Please, no more talk of the 'R' word. Played most of the game with 10 of our championship players and finished the game with eleven! Brilliant! For the very last time. 'WE AIN'T GOING DOWN! 😂😂.


1.) 31 Jan 2021 16:24:30
Bloody hell, this hottub is getting overcrowded. Going to have to get new supplies for the prosecco tap and the Remy Martin fountain at this rate

Hats off to Bamford. 1 goal and 2 assists against a defence that is no mugs. Not my fantasy forward but totally honest and he is getting better season by season.

Also winning from a goal down, we are really starting to show character.

And if Alioski is off at the end of the season he is definitely not going out on a whimper. Committed to the cause.

Well done Leeds you make me proud.

2.) 31 Jan 2021 16:36:01
Danum mate very happily ( and 100% finally ) agree. 👍💜

Axe, amending slightly a famous line from the movie Jaws : ' You are going to need a bigger ( boat) hot tub '

3.) 31 Jan 2021 16:36:32
First time Leicester have lost when scoring first this season I believe.

4.) 31 Jan 2021 16:37:54
Axe I was totally guilty of a complete inaccuracy on Paddy, the lad is a complete workhorse and such a nice person thrown in for. good measure, Patrick is a model pro and I am a silly clown for not seeing what was clearly always there!
Leeds utd you make me so proud ALAW 💪.

5.) 31 Jan 2021 16:52:35
Definitely looking UP tonight! Best performance against one of the top teams this season! Many good performances today! Well pleased for Paddy!
4pts off 6th place! Can’t work out why Costa is so sloppy when he comes on? I would think he would be busting a gut to impress! Very happy tonight! MOT.

6.) 31 Jan 2021 17:26:48
BamBam, is on fire,! What a performance, as others have said, against a defence that are no slouches. His work ethic is second to none. Mark my words, if he carries on like this, he will at least be the Players player of the season. Didn’t like the way he was holding his thigh tho at full time; hopefully just a knock.

7.) 31 Jan 2021 18:57:59
He said in post match interview, it was just a dead leg and that he felt it would be fine Brights, Paddy is integral to Leeds utd 💪.



21 Jan 2021 12:02:03
I really, really don't get it now? Two Vanilla fans (it's ok I meant to spell it like that) coming onto our site moaning that we're having a go at them! What the flip do you expect. If it offends you don't read or post on our site.


1.) 21 Jan 2021 12:25:08
Yes 100% agree Danum.

2.) 21 Jan 2021 12:51:29

{Ed047's Note - posters are ok to go between sites as long as it is banter and not abuse.

If someone is abusive the post should not go up, if we miss it then tag one of us into a reply to the post by our Ed numbers and we can then do something about it.

3.) 21 Jan 2021 13:17:24
Ed, I don't mind them coming on and having a go at Leeds, but then to get upset when we have a go back, I really don't understand that at all. 😲.

4.) 21 Jan 2021 13:32:08
I thought their meltdowns were priceless! I'd welcome that kind of entertainment on the site any day!

5.) 21 Jan 2021 14:26:57
Agree Alf
Vile Dave's many meltdowns in particular have been priceless.

6.) 21 Jan 2021 14:52:58
I hope they continue to pop in from time to time, harmless rival banter as far as I’m concerned. But not too often!



19 Jan 2021 07:28:08
Berm. Could you please explain why, as you say our team doesn't have championship players? Half of our starting 11 are the same players that couldn't get us out of the championship before Bielsa came.
I just don't get your reasoning. Or am I missing something? 😕.


1.) 19 Jan 2021 08:27:47
At the same time Berm could you also explain why we can’t beat teams that play 4-4-2 when we just soundly won against WBA, Newcastle and Burnley, your not making any sense?!

2.) 19 Jan 2021 09:37:31
Dont forget too Danum and OP, that Berm also believes Leeds, a newly promoted team, with all but 2 of its available squad so far being Championship players, should finish top 4 🤪, or the very least top 8 as he previously claimed.
# underachievers😉.

3.) 19 Jan 2021 11:14:27
Everyone needs to get over the fact we played in the championship. vardy played non-leauge that don’t make him a non-leauge player does it

Our players are not championship players because when offered a like for like swap with other prem team players we are not taking the swap so how are them prem players

As for 4-4-2 I never in a million years said that stop putting words in my mouth to twist things.

I said we can’t beat teams who sit back and defend deep. We can’t if you disagree with that your an idiot who don’t know the first thing about football

Also soundly beating Burnley they were the better team and had a perfectly good goal dissalpllowed that is hardly sound is it.

I know some don’t like what I say because it is not positive and because I dare to question god but I’m getting fed up with people twisting what I say to try and make them right or make me look stupid

I’m far from stupid and I got belisa spot on

Our players ain’t championship players how do o know because we are prem and when offered the swap we wouldn’t take it (with half of the teams) I also know because we wouldn’t swap with championship players name one championship squad you would swap with . exactly

Belisa style can be great but just as often it can be useless this is not a new thing or a couple of games it is a three great pattern

You may chose to accept the good over the bad that is a judgement call but to say I haven’t got a valid point or I’m not siring logic is blindness from the rose tinted glasses.

4.) 19 Jan 2021 11:16:45
And yes bv it is possible

Lesciter were a championship squad newly promoted to prem, they did the great escape one year then become prem champs the next.

We got some good players we spent a lot of money we apparently have a good manager why should we not be aiming for top 8 (top four was a joke and you know it but makes you feel better to think I was serious then knock yourself out and enjoy)

5.) 19 Jan 2021 11:32:04
Some good points
We have struggled to beat teams that sit back - Memorably last year was the Luton game!
I thought when promoted we needed to strengthen as too many Championship players - A few have proved me wrong but IMO only Alioski, Cooper, Costa and Roberts are not Premiership that there are also only Koch and Philipps have shown that they are quality top 6 Premiership players.
My main concern is that we have a lack of depth in three main areas Goalkeeper, Defensive Midfield and Centre Forward. This together with MB failing to rest out of form players cause us issues.

6.) 19 Jan 2021 12:43:19
of course Cambridge I agree,

Cooper is definitely not prem quality and alioski is very hit and miss, costa I think played well and just is not used properly and Roberts I don't think will make the cut

but so many on here say we have championship players like that is the reason when we lose and it is not we lost last year for same reasons as this belisa tactics don't work against certain types of teams (or counter tactics)

over all our squad is not championship and no worse than ten other teams in the prem

when we lose blaming the players for me is not right (not when losing to teams like brighton who we have better players than and when it is tactical defeat)

meliser, dallas, harrision, bamford, klich, phillips have shown they can do a job (so as aliokski to a lesser degree)

so it is not players letting us down. it is tactics. it is belisa making the same old mistakes time and time again. I don't know why some leeds fans can't just see and admit that most of leeds failings are his fault (granted so are the great results as well, credit where it is due like against villa and everton but also blame where it is due as well)

7.) 19 Jan 2021 13:56:32
So if our players are as good as 10 other teams, why is our squad value significantly less? aren't players valued on their ability? In like for like positions the majority of our team is also valued less. Why is that if they are the same quality?

8.) 19 Jan 2021 14:59:00
Meslier - Good shot stopper and will be a great Prem keeper but right now struggle to think many teams he would start
Costa - Good Championship player but didn't make the grade at Wolves in Prem
Klich - Good start but I think he was playing above himself now found his level
Harrison - Wonderkid on his day and can't cross a bridge other days
Dallas - Works his ar5e off and would probably get in most lower table sides

Overall if we are looking top 8 then IMO we have only one player who could get in to any of the below sides

MAn Utd, Liverpool, Spurs, Man City, Everton, Arsenal, Leicester, Chelsea - Could even add Villa and West Ham to that list.

9.) 19 Jan 2021 18:16:49
alf you know me

I hold no value in players values

harry Maguire got sold for 80 million, Lucas radebe was 175k.

market value don't always add up otherwise no player would be a waste of money or a bargin

what they are doing on the pitch is the only way I value them. to value them any other way to me seems silly.



16 Jan 2021 18:19:31
I think, the trouble is most of our team are championship level, who most of the time play above themselves, but when they play to their real level can look pretty average. I
In reality we maybe have 4 or 5 half decent Prem level players. Harrison, Raph, Messlier possibly Ayling, Koch and hopefully Lorente. This season Bielsa should be using it as way of finding out exactly what he needs for next season to make us more competitive.


1.) 16 Jan 2021 19:08:42
If that’s the case and trouble is the players then belisa has to be sacked

Why is belisa trying to play champagne football with championship players, . if players are that bad we do need a sam aka dive type don’t we someone whose game plan fits the quailty of our players?

2.) 16 Jan 2021 21:50:40
BW. No. In answer to your question. If we played in a different way, we'd not have as many points as we have now. Bielsa is actually getting the best out of what he has to work with, which will be enough to see us safe this season. Then he can add to the team next season.
Rome wasn't built in a day.

3.) 16 Jan 2021 23:19:37
wrong Danum you are just wrong

I am not saying play another way. I am saying when it don't work adapt

everton. play the way we play

today mix it up. I can't give us fewer points because it don't work. we have nothing to lose

if only we could play like the wonderful big sam when needed. it won't affect the great games when it suits us but might help us beat wolves

I am not saying change everything about leeds. I am saying mix it up a bit.

Don't forget we haven't even had our supposedly best back four together yet. Plus we don't need to change anything straight away as WE'RE NOT GOING DOWN! Next season is all that matters from this point on. The rest of this season should be all about preparing for the next one.

Looks like you're right Cambridge. Pablo has been our stand out, most important player since he came to us. However, I think he is, I'm afraid to say past it. Thanks for all that you've done for us Pablo, and I just hope they let fans back in to ER before you leave, so you can get a proper send off.
