Do the bookies know something we don't? The odds on Leeds to win the league are tumbling week by week. In to 4/1 from 7s with lots of firms. I hear one firm nearly 90% of bets are on Leeds. Is it because we came third last season, Bielsa being manager or even a takeover in the pipeline?
Hopefully all three!

Takeover hopefully Cork!

Your post cheered me up Corky. The bookies are rarely wrong. Superb.

19 Jun 2019 05:10:23
Cork More likely the 4th reason you're missing. An effective transfer window this summer. We may sell Clarke and others but I believe the bookies realize we're going to use the funds very wisely. Adding say Costa, Kent, Lowe, Barbet and Travers will make us some force to be reckoned with. Even I am becoming optimistic. Wish we could get Wilson too but we'd have to sell KP to make that happen.

Georgie I rarely question you bud but why such optimism re the window? No incomings as yet and Barbet already gone to QPR .

19 Jun 2019 07:11:58
Barbet to qpr is done, I'd love to see travers and costa, kent too. Lowe looks good but is a risk and may be no better than clarke currently. IMO diame, costa, new goalkeeper, and ben white should be priorities.

Wow, Georgie, welcome back! We are making space for you in the hot tub of hope! Tell Emma she can come as well! I like your thinking and hope you are spot on!

19 Jun 2019 08:52:40
hope we avoid Pogba. haha.

19 Jun 2019 08:55:36
I must admit even I’m feeling a flicker of hope and excitement.
Better get myself off to the Drs!

Bookies react to the market so if they are taking lots of bets on Leeds the odds will be reduced. It doesn't necessarily mean anything at all. I'm fairly sure we were odds on for promotion last season as well and look what happened there.

Bookies often create a false gamble.

19 Jun 2019 10:12:01
Barbet gone to QPR.

19 Jun 2019 11:48:15
RHC What I'm seeing right now is a realization from management of the pressing need to add a tailored goal threat to the side. They're doing the right thing by selling assets so we can strengthen correctly. I see Barbet has gone but there's other targets such as Costa Kent Lowe Travers and White to go for. If you can't be optimistic in a transfer window which is a chance to rectify previous errors, when can you?

George, just remember, no wearing the Leeds Utd 1972 FA Cup Final commemorative mankini in the hot tub this time

Plays havoc with my plumbing.

19 Jun 2019 13:08:49
Let’s see if we succeed with these targets . Costa is looking hopeful ( following us on Instagram ) although I think he’s out of form and low in confidence so will need some MB loving if he’s to do what he did for Wolves in champ . Personally I don’t think we will land Kent but hope we do . If we have to sell Clarke I would want a minimum 1 season loan back .

19 Jun 2019 14:56:22
RHC Not sure it's in any of the parties' interests for a Clarke loan back to us. Might confuse the boy. I prefer a clean break and the cash.

19 Jun 2019 15:08:44
Samo In my opinion, Diame too old, wouldn't fit in with the team.

19 Jun 2019 21:58:58
I hope you’re right George however that’s not the reason the odds have been cut. Lots of fairly large bets from punters the reason and as always there’s always some in the know. It’s not unknown for the odd journalist with info to lump on!

19 Jun 2019 23:57:08
I’m sure Al would say, that there’s only one reason the odds have narrowed so much. we are going up as champions! Turn on the hot tub jets and let’s get some more bubbly in!
