Happy with the two Inter names bandied about. Both come highly recommended but both are young enough to not demand a starting berth every week. If we are to start playing three at the back then Struijk and Nolan should complement White and Cooper perfectly. If Nolan has the same ice cool attributes as White he will be a capture indeed.

Yep, totally agree Leodis. White looks so confident with the ball at his feet, reminded me of Norman Hunter! Too soon tho, but just my first impression.


2.) 05 Aug 2019 16:20:06
More like a little Paul Madeley Bright.


3.) 05 Aug 2019 21:41:25
That’s the highest accolade there is Bige!

Please, please, please, let this Nolan* rumour be true.
*PS or pretty much any other decent CB.

We, supposedly, are interested in Striker Caicedo in Italy. 15goals in 2 seasons kind off says it all. What we have is way better than that. End of.

leodis

1.) 23 Jul 2019 23:11:23
Leo This is why it's not easy to improve on what you have unless you spend big which we simply can't do. It's always about value, at least at this level. I believe Edmondson will contribute this season but the spine of the defence is a concern.


2.) 24 Jul 2019 00:33:50
Not many decent strikers available to be fair, maybe Hugill. I have faith that Edmo will do the job if he gets the chance.


3.) 24 Jul 2019 10:31:57
What’s going on here!? This is the 3rd time I’ve agreed with you George!


4.) 24 Jul 2019 16:03:00
Yes George the only panic point I am creeping up on is Centre Back.

Samu gone to Girona. Do we not play them 29 July?

leodis

1.) 18 Jul 2019 15:33:02
Indeed. Well, actually 27th isn't it. And Girona also play Derby two days previously, so it will be interesting which of those matches features the greater proportion of Girona's first team - of course there could be a mixture for both, and I guess Said could play in either.

Likewise, it will be very interesting to see which of our players are there and which in Sardinia. Presumably Bielsa will want his likely starters for Brizzle playing together, but we can only guess whether he will choose to take them to Sardinia or Tad.

Of the half dozen names being bandied about for CB I have no preference I do however prefer that any move is swift and decisive. Too much have we shilly-shallied allowing the enemy to jump in and beat us. Let us quietly decide our target (s) and quietly negotiate and loudly anounce our new signing.

leodis

1.) 10 Jul 2019 08:13:51
Really think white is his replacement, we were short on cover even with pontus . Doesn't seem much rush to bring someone in for bielsa's pre-season. Would not be surprised with no one coming in, but using what players we have. Not learnt much from last season!


2.) 10 Jul 2019 10:38:47
Mezzer I am sadly afraid you may be only too right. Surely MB can see we need a Rock at the back an old head to bring on the kids and mop up Coopers mistakes. Williams, Cahill, etc. There are a few out there. Just hoping right now that White is the real deal from day One.


3.) 10 Jul 2019 15:05:12
I could see White talking over from Phillips. In effect White is an upgrade/ replacement on Diaz.


4.) 10 Jul 2019 17:40:37
I really can only see us getting some more players in as replacements for Phillips and Roofe, don't think despite all the rumours that we will sign another centre half. Bielsa likes his small squad of players so we were told, so can't believe anything will be different. The rush of players we got in last week was done with the Knowledge that Bielsa was letting Pontus to (IMO) . Can't wait for the season to start now, was expecting good things this season after coming so close last time, but as usual we operate like it's pantomime season. We always seem to go two steps forward then call in a big hole.


5.) 10 Jul 2019 18:18:37
Or even fall in a big hole.

You must know it hurts me to agree with Noel Whelan but I too would have closed this game out and gone to a back 3 and by defensive definition a back 5 at times. I feel sorry for Pascal, cold, young, never started a game. Where are his "friends", protecting him?

Question - Am I a real football supporter?

I tried watching the Champions League last night, but got fed up. I am not that bothered if I watch or miss MOTD.

Unless one team plays in White/ Grey with a man sitting on a bucket I just cannot get excited. (I have however found that I am strangely interested in the Fulham and Baggies games recently, for some unknown reason) In fact I would rather watch an U23s Leeds game than a Prem fixture.
As for la liga, Serie A, then an U18 Leeds Cup game wins .

Should I be worried or is this year so exciting I am developing a one track mind? Help me Please. Is there a cure?

leodis

1.) 12 Dec 2019 14:25:03
Leodis I am similar. It's called love and there is no cure.


2.) 12 Dec 2019 14:41:38
Yes I am the same . Its very hard to watch other games because there is so much football on the TV now. Apart from the Mighty Whites, I find myself watching to see if some other teams get beat!


3.) 12 Dec 2019 14:49:05
I like watching prem football. Liverpool or man city or Leicester. U cannot miss Barcelona v Madrid.
But apart from that.
It is getting exciting.
We are playing well. Others aren’t.
I don’t watch other champ games because I don’t care. We are top and better than them. I’d rather watch the heights we will need to achieve rather than what we are about to leave behind. B.


4.) 12 Dec 2019 14:54:36
Will also watch Liverpool or Man City games but apart from that can't be bothered about any other games.


5.) 12 Dec 2019 15:04:58
Very much the same leodis, but I've been told that a good dose of promotion will change this.


6.) 12 Dec 2019 16:27:40
Really can’t be bothered with any other Footie games. Leeds only. Even internationals are overlooked regularly! There was a time when I would watch everything I could, but after years of coaching, think it’s just boring now, again, unless it’s Leeds!


7.) 12 Dec 2019 16:44:09
I joined that bored with prem. club football many moons ago. Fully committed member now. The interest will be reignited soon.


8.) 12 Dec 2019 17:55:13
Absolutely agree. I do secretly enjoy watching Leicester best the moneybags though. 2017 or whenever it was was thoroughly enjoyable, but would have preferred watching Leeds U23s.


9.) 12 Dec 2019 21:04:02
Totally agree I have even cancelled my BT Sport, bored with watching European football. Hope we can shake up the Premier league next season and make it more interesting.


 

 

10 Dec 2019 17:09:12
Is it the time of year to resurrect the Michael Hector rumours or have we found our CB in our own ranks?

leodis

1.) 10 Dec 2019 18:19:31
not sure but i saw alan smith outside thorpe arch, maybe the replacement for eddie?


 

 

07 Dec 2019 16:35:15
Will Bielsa give Eddie a run of games now, in an attempt tp keep him?

leodis

1.) 07 Dec 2019 18:59:24
Probably not

If you looked when Eddie came on he wasn’t doing the job Bielsa wants from a lone striker

He’s not that type of player

He will, however, be great as an impact sub.


2.) 07 Dec 2019 20:44:46
Two entirely different styles. For a team looking to mainly play fast, counter attacking football, he’s a gem, but for us, he’s really a fantastic second half sub. Whether he, or Arsenal are happy with that, who knows. Other factor tho, is his fitness levels after injury. He won’t be starting for a while.


 

 

07 Dec 2019 15:54:24
A game just to celebrate the three points. As a football match it was not a classic but we did enough. Slightly concerned that (first half especially) we were out muscled by a team riven with injuries? Still think that although he did not let us down, playing White out of position was a mistake and should have been rethought especially with the Cooper injury. Still, let's now wait for West Brom to drop some points.

Sign Vydra on a goal bonus AND everytime he gets a duck he pays us. That should show how loyal he is?

Between the Bielsa out and Bielsa can do no wrong camps lies the middle ground which 99% of supporters follow. I know coz I asked all of them. Apart from one having his piles done so did not like disturbing him in his time of pain. He is a great manager who plays attractive attacking football but his latin, macho, stubborn streak makes him vulnerable, and open to criticism.

The boring win versus the flamboyant defeat has exercised my mind for many a day and altho there is no definitive answer, today I am leaning towards the boring. Another flamboyant year in the Championship is too much to take. Rather the "one nil to the Arsenal" approach and win trophies and titles galore. Of course all that goes out the window when Qatar Billions come in and we buy who we like, but in the meantime.

For all Bielsa is criticised, he is our manager. For all he makes wrong? decisions, he is our manager and until that changes he has my support (tho I do question him. Often) and all of you here on this forum, wherever you live, however many games you see, does not matter. You all, in your own way, feel for Leeds, live and die for Leeds.

We can all see the light at the end of the tunnel. We are moving the right way (tho not quick enough for some) . We are all revelling in the football offered and, I think you will agree, that with a few tweaks the glory days will return. Today is for enjoying, made sweeter by some of the darker days, not that long ago.

A decision of mixwd reasons maybe, including, just in case White leaves in Jan and the need for a CB replacement during a heavy Christmas schedule. At the same time it sends a message to the U23s that you are not being overlooked.

Dreaming is all we have had recently Brighty. But it hasn't stopped us believing. To paraphrase Saint Liza - "Maybe this time, We'll be lucky. Maybe this time, we'll Go. Everybody loves a winner, so nobody loves us" (until this May! )

I don't dispute he could do a job '70 but it is all too easy to wind him up, then we may be playing with 10 men for the rest of the game. I feel that the answer lies in the U23 ranks if Philips goes (hope not) Shackleton, Bogusz, McCalmont?

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.

Was thinking the same George. With what we have and those knocking on the door; plus those out there much younger and cheaper, I cannot see a place for Milner. Much as I regret to say it.
