It never ceases to amaze me how so many Leeds fans can continue to attempt to justify the actions of a series of lousy owners who have consistently sold off our best young talent . I don't need to name them all here as we all know who they are . Sold for peanuts by unscrupulous owners . A number of whom have then gone on and played for England and worth embarrassing multiples of the sold for price . Whilst £10 m plus blah blah might sound a lot, in the modern game it's still peanuts . This kid is barely 18, at 17 he was coming on and winning top end Champ games virtually single handed . Ok his stamina was questionable and he tailed off after his illness, but anyone with half a football brain can see this kid is pretty unique and time and continued physical development, may be just over this Summer, would have sorted the fitness issues . Gary Lineker with no bias whatsoever included him in a list of English bright young things, including Foden, Hudson - Odoi, Sancho etc . Why even say it doesn't matter, Shack is better anyway . Last time I counted there were eleven spots available in a football team .

Other tedious, predictable excuses include the following -

1 . He only played a few games . So what the kid could have made a real difference next season after a Summer's growth and physical development and another preseason . Plus what about the next few seasons, including if back in the prem .

2 . We need the money to invest in the here and now . Excuse me but look at this regime's track record in the recruitment department . It's frankly pathetic! Who have they bought or borrowed for that matter that actually had a nailed down place in the first eleven . I'll tell you shall I, two players, Klich and it's only been for a season and Alioski who is one of the most frustrating players in the team . All the regular first teamers are former academy players like KP, or already here ( Pontus, Pablo, Ayling, Roofe, Cooper, Berardi etc ) . As for the long list of absolute garbage purchased or borrowed its quite ridiculous . So why should any sensible person have any faith that things will be different this time around? Pray tell!

3 . Oh but we are a championship club, everyone knows they are loss making and what about EFL FFP rules . I don't want to sound too much like Wex here ( sorry Wex! ) but something must be seriously wrong, negligent or down right fraudulent if a club making £40 m plus in revenues ( largest in the league stripping out parachutes ) , plus no longer rents its ground and has already sold Chris Wood, Charlie Taylor, Ronaldo Viera and now JC for serious money, can't at least break even . We've all seen extracts from the accounts . Large " admin " fees! Either seriously poor and expensive recruitment on the largely garbage brought in ( transfer fees, salaries, agents etc ) or just Rads etc taking out large salaries and other forms of pilfering and milking the cow . Finally, if we really do need the money and Radz is as potless as he seems, then bloody sell to QSI or one of the other interested groups!

4 . Spanish will of course wheel out the frankly tiresome now and hackneyed, quote unquote " well if he's going, Bielsa must be ok with it as otherwise he wouldn't be here and with respect RHC, I trust his judgement over yours " . This argument is of course designed to belittle and condescend as I find many of the poster of the year's posts tend to be these days, albeit in his usual disarming matey way . Let's look at the facts shall we . Since MB came on board none of " his " signings have been a resounding success . As Spanish himself says " jury still out " on Bam and Douglas . The loanees were all an embarrassment and Casilla virtually single handedly blew our season for us . Furthermore, as we all know MB is a short term appointment and may well only be here for another season . So if he can get in some loans that might get him over the line this time around, he might well be prepared to sell a young gem . But we will all be here this time next year and hopefully if still breathing in ten years time . We needn't be such short term opportunists .

Klich from cellino era.

26 Jun 2019 21:43:14
Over too you Spanish . 😎.

26 Jun 2019 21:56:41
“Winning games single handedly”. You should’ve stopped there, and need to stop calling people out for having a different opinion to yours. You are allowed your say, others are allowed theirs. Respect that.

26 Jun 2019 21:57:31
It seems our Owner, like Owners before him just can't resist when an offer comes in. For me, the Clarke deal, in today's market, if for what ever reason we have to sell, we should have been driving a harder bargain with Spurs than what we are reportedly getting.

26 Jun 2019 22:09:26
Nobody likes the truth RHC.

26 Jun 2019 22:11:00
If we are being run so well where is the money if Leeds United funds bought ER why was it not put in the clubs ownership to many unanswered questions.

26 Jun 2019 22:12:55
And Clarke won't be the only loss. would not surprise me to see another mainstay of the team go. also pablo is not going to see out another season.

26 Jun 2019 22:30:01
Wex I ❤ truth.

26 Jun 2019 22:43:33
Love you RHC 💛💙💛💙
Simple registry office do or full church wedding? Wex can be the best man.

26 Jun 2019 22:52:19
That’s put me in depressed state rhc. Remind me not to invite you to any of my parties! Hopefully Spanish will uplift us with a more measured realistic response! Think I’ve lost the will to live! Roll on another relegation battle this season!
By the way I think we had to sell Clarke, fair price in my opinion after only 4 starts, to enable investment in other players whilst keeping within FFP rules and I’m sure Bielsa would have okayed it! 😂go on then, just one more pint!

26 Jun 2019 23:41:34
Changed the villa games that’s it! And wex u say we will see another mainstay go, Clarke wasn’t a mainstay . Clarke made a name himself because he took villa apart . What about all the other games he didn’t make a difference. Think a lot of people are looking thru rose tinted specs because he is a young Leeds academy player . He can and will be replaced.

Never a positive, a commend your consistent approach to life

However, one small chink of positivity did creep through. you are looking at being a supporter in 10 years time. love it, I knew you were starting to turn that big old oil tanker of negativity around and become your inner Percy Positive

Oh, and just so you know,
I hate the fact we sold Woodgate,
I hate the fact we sold Lennon,
I hate the fact we sold Milner,
I hate the fact we sold Delph,
I hate the fact we Gradel,
I hate the fact we sold Snodgrass,
I hate the fact we let Beckford go,
I hate the fact we sold Becchio
I hate the fact we sold McCormack,
I hate the fact we sold Byram,
I hate the fact we sold Cook,
I hate the fact we sold Wood,
I hate the fact we sold Taylor,
I hate the fact we sold Viera,


Should I list this section in every future post, as you seem to do with your chairman-hating mantra?

Do you have anything else to contribute, other the same chairman-bashing paragraph, with different punctuation?
(Most other poster have other topics they discuss)

Every chairman has sold the fans favourite. Which pre-Risedale chairman are you thinking of that was so much better than post-Risedale chairmen?

27 Jun 2019 06:06:23
Axe Don't think we actually sold Taylor. He left on a "Bosman" I believe and his fee of around £7m was set by tribunal. You'll recall he refused to play the final game of the season to ensure an injury wouldn't scupper his medical.

27 Jun 2019 07:31:11
Good morning.

27 Jun 2019 08:13:04
Wow, we really need the sunshine today. Or better still, come on Rads get an actual new signing over the line. Our guys are internalizing their anger/ frustration! See what you do to us! Can we please have a counselling section on the posts please.

27 Jun 2019 08:37:45
Axe think you are suffering with selective memory syndrome . If you have some time take a look at my recent posts on my profile . Only “ negative ״ on lack of investment in first team and sale of JC . Placed Radz above a number of other owners in a recent analysis and praised him for a number of things . But don’t act like selling our best players has to be a fact of life because it needn’t be .

27 Jun 2019 08:45:08
Pmsl axe
Wonder if he’s got his season ticket yet.

27 Jun 2019 09:21:19
That’s an absolute belter Axe! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻.

27 Jun 2019 09:24:49
axe Chellino

he was great when he sold he sold so high no one could complain he got more for Moccorack (who did nothing once he left and only had one good season) and Chris wood than Rads has for two of englands britghtest talents in veria and clarke. and the market has inflated in last few years. Cellino would of got 30 million plus for both.

Of course i agree with all the negitivity on here but the signs can only been seen as worrying

i called the clarke transfer in november after speaking to spurs scout who admitted souting leeds loved clarke and hated phillips. he said clarke the most exciting british talent he has seen since giggs. with that in mind from the expert 10 mil ain't great is it?

27 Jun 2019 09:42:17
Berm think it was Radz who sold CW last days or so of his first Summer window with TC .

27 Jun 2019 10:40:36
Don't mention radz stealing Elland Road.

27 Jun 2019 12:48:00

There we go with chairman-hating mantra again

I have decided to play the "Withnail and I" game with your posts.

A prosecco for every post you mention our chairmans deficits.
A cup of tea (hate the stuff) for every post that says a positive about ANYTHING

Just off down to Bargain Booze (other off licences are available) to stock up for this weekends reading.

27 Jun 2019 13:17:00
Changing history to suit your argument Statler? Klich was an Orta signing and was made under Radz.

27 Jun 2019 13:27:16
Oh my god! Now Waldorf is changing history. Wood was sold under Radz tenure for £15m.
