New rumour from a few different sources (French Football News/ Goal) saying we are trying to convince Julian Draxler to join from PSG.
Highly, highly unlikely, but wouldn’t that be epic!

1.) 08 Sep 2020 18:08:11
Epic effort but looks like he prefers living in Paris to living in Leeds

Strange lad.

2.) 08 Sep 2020 18:49:22
Yes apparently he is not interested.


3.) 09 Sep 2020 00:38:30
Other woody 😂.

4.) 09 Sep 2020 12:43:40
He is on £120,000.a week. Never happening.

5.) 09 Sep 2020 13:16:20
Draxler, Really? let's just park him on the list between Messi and Bale. Just above Ronaldo (Christiano that is) .
Maybe he does prefer Paris to Leeds but he could live in Batley and get the train in.

6.) 10 Sep 2020 11:10:37
Why not Beeston, and just walk to the ground?



26 Aug 2020 13:01:05
Apparently Greenwood from Arsenal is also having a medical today! This lad could be good signing, he chose Leeds over Man U! The lad is obviously bright as well!



25 Aug 2020 18:32:42
Phil Hay saying that the Rodrigo deal is all but done, and that he will having a medical, and Phil don’t lie
Very happy if this lands, big statement of intent, just need Koch, Holding, Messi and Wilson and it’s sorted!

1.) 26 Aug 2020 20:17:13
Rodrigo all done. Listed on Leeds website as 2nd striker :)
It's also on the Premier league website under Leeds squad.



26 Jun 2020 09:49:11
Orta being touted by Red Bull for their Technical Director of Football role! WOW

He said he is surprised by the interest, and so am I

He also said he does not expect to leave Leeds! Why would do that to us Orta, Why, Why?



05 Aug 2019 22:23:42
Reports from Belgium are that Roofe has completed a switch to Anderlecht on a 3 year deal.
Hopefully we will see some more transfer action with a couple coming in tomorrow. Reports from Inter Milan are that a deal is close for their young CB and Striker, could be very promising!

England should bring on Kane and Mount for the second half!

{Ed014's Note - 😂😂

The Athletic reporting a deal done for Dan James. I know a few have reservations but I think he could be perfect for Leeds and with Bielsa coaching him, will very quickly become a superstar (I hope) . James down the left and Harrison brought into the middle to act as a No 10, will work very well me thinks! The way we break away on the counter, having the speed that James delivers will certainly give us more options to score, just like Troare gives Wolves. Just my opinion though.

1.) 30 Aug 2021 19:54:37
Hold your horses MG, toffees trying to hijack now seemingly, but you would think bins would win the manager allure.

2.) 30 Aug 2021 20:05:49
Who said Leeds and Rad wouldn’t spend any cash?
Apologies below lads 😉.

3.) 30 Aug 2021 20:21:13
Seems very expensive for a player in a position we are already well covered. Bielsa keen on him though so would be interesting to see what happens. Is it last minute desperation though as opposed to a well thought out strategy?

4.) 30 Aug 2021 20:25:26
Let Everton have him not worth £25 mil.

5.) 30 Aug 2021 20:25:46
"Last minute"!

The lads taken years to get to us (if he does)

Personally I see Raphinha as the No10.

6.) 30 Aug 2021 20:31:53
Angus always said if the right deal was available we would do it so not desperation just taking opportunities.

7.) 30 Aug 2021 20:36:06
I’ll be happy if this goes through. Bielsa clearly rated the lad back in 2018/ 19 and had apparently done his homework in coming to that conclusion, recalling the Dan James folder evident on his desktop when bringing up his Spygate presentation. Since then he’s had significant experience in the Prem, in European club competitions and with Wales, and doubtless Bielsa will have reviewed his performance in all those games.

If he’s agreed to join us, Orta must have been able to present a fairly compelling case in respect of the role and development Bielsa envisioned for him, as the lad will evidently have needed convincing over his likely playing time.

He is prepared to put a shift in out of possession, is technically sound, is virtually two footed, can play either left or right and even as a striker. His pace can make us an even greater threat on the break, and help prevent teams committing too many on the press against us. And all that is before Bielsa gets to work on his game…….

8.) 30 Aug 2021 20:37:52
Exactly Ox. Leeds have their targets and no point buying a player for the sake of it.

9.) 30 Aug 2021 20:45:43
Clueless exactly what I wanted to say but couldn’t be arsed! Well said mate.

10.) 30 Aug 2021 21:05:55
I think we were all hoping we may do some late business, I will be delighted if we get James over the line, it will give everyone involved with the Club a lift. Could there be another surprise tomorrow?

11.) 30 Aug 2021 21:50:34
I’m delighted with the James transfer too but there’s a few numpties who believe he’s shite. Time will tell I suppose?

{Ed014's Note - goodbye

12.) 31 Aug 2021 03:41:49
MG Raph no number 10. James will be used in league games as a supersub much like Eddie was.

13.) 31 Aug 2021 05:43:11
How and why are we all assuming Raph can play at no10? Has he played there before? Rodrigo has been playing out of position there and making a hash of it so who is to say Raph will fare any better? Or do we just lose his ability on the wing also and still not have a no10? I pray that this is the plan and it's one that will be effective.

14.) 31 Aug 2021 03:47:54
Ed14bc Is that goodbye from you or goodbye from the Shepherds Bush Irishman?



02 Jun 2021 20:26:32
Just missed the last 3 minutes of the England game, how many time did Grealish fall over?

{Ed014's Note - 7

1.) 02 Jun 2021 21:05:14
I made it 8 times that Jerkish 'fell over' in the past 3 minutes Ed014 😃

On a side note I give it 80 % chance this will be the last tournament as England manager for the inept Southgate.



23 May 2021 21:18:25
The Guardian and other sites are saying Bielsa has agreed another one year deal and will be announced in the next few days.

Marvellous news and done so early, so hopefully get the summer recruitment completed quickly to get a full pre season!

Epic season and very much looking forward to achieving more next season!

1.) 23 May 2021 21:49:09
I'm just going to enjoy this one for a bit, after the Euros I can start worrying about 21/ 22.

2.) 24 May 2021 10:01:28
If it is true I wonder what he asked for in his new contract?

3.) 24 May 2021 10:26:04
He’s asked for a new coat Leodis. Sammy Lee has got his old one!
Well done to everyone at the club a marvellous achievement and a very enjoyable season.



20 Apr 2021 13:19:09
I generally support English teams in Europe (within reason) , but I have never wanted more for PSG to win the Champions League and Roma to win the Europa so none of the R-Sole teams in the new Super League win anything. I have had to switch from Sky Sports to put Loose Women on the TV as I am getting increasingly angry about this new league proposition. I even want Brighton to smash Chelski tonight.

1.) 20 Apr 2021 14:46:47
PSG should be given the trophy, how can those 3 teams walk out to the champions league music
Joke, same as Sundays cup final, Joke, FA cup joke
How many times last night the the commentators say Liverpool need to push for top 4, Joke

2.) 20 Apr 2021 15:33:41
It's the fans and players I feel sorry for though. By all accounts they didn't have a clue about any of this. They should sue the owners if they get kicked out of any competitions.

3.) 20 Apr 2021 19:02:50
Richie, it’s a joke that teams settle and see 4th place as a successful season really. Shouldn’t the aspiration be to finish top out right not just 4th.
Whether this cobblers goes ahead or not, something has to be done about the grotesque amounts of money involved in the game. It’s getting ridiculous now, players and agents demanding £500k a week + 20% signing on fees for them both and their dad is just plain crazy. Championship players like Toney and Buendia being touted around at circa £25-30m is just nuts.
It’s crazy and it needs winding back in now, Real bank of Spain madrid and Barcelona being £2billion in debt! £2billion how have they been allowed to carry on with debt like that.

I don’t know why we don’t go for Zincenko from City. He is rapid and would be perfect for the left back spot and struggles to get time at Man City. I think MB would turn him into a worldly. Even if we get him on loan for the rest of the season, a better alternative to Alioski.

I was impressed with him last season, and he was playing in a parp team and stood out! I think he will be a good addition.

We all know your feelings towards the past, and fully respect your opinion, but please please, let’s move on. Nobody disagrees we didn’t strengthen enough in the areas we hoped for in the summer window, but moaning about it on a daily basis is draining, and it’s in the past!

Awful awful awful. Can’t pick out one player who played well in the first half, continued into the second, Roberts just gave it away, they attack and score, and guess who is still in their box, Roberts. How he gets a wage for playing football is beyond me.

Still think we will win!

Bit different! The breakaway league was simply about money, not human rights atrocities, whereas the Newcastle owners ………….
