Wow, and I thought that with Glastonbury only days away we were already into a summer of love!

It's funny to me that anyone who is seen as in any way supportive to Radz is "sycophantic" and "wheeling out frankly tiresome " and " hackneyed" quotes whereas all the anti Radz angry brigade are always the bearers of the absolute "truth that hurts" despite how many times they post the same stuff! It all sounds a bit " four legs good, two legs bad to me"!

Guess what, it's a banter site, we all have different opinions about how the club is being run, coached and resourced. I'll take any of the comments about my posts in that spirit and I hope that you'll all do the same. However "amazing" it is that not everyone shares your views, that's democracy for you! As my Nan always used to say, " If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen! And I love cooking! If that doesn't work, we could always meet behind the bike sheds after school!

I've already said in an earlier post that I think, Radz, Orta, Bielsa and the players all made mistakes in the last year that contributed to us failing to grasp the opportunity of promotion. That said, even despite that and all the criticism that RHC and Wex level at Radz, Orta and Bielsa, we played some great football at all levels, 2nd in under 18s, top under 23s and 3rd the first team! That to me means the current regime deserves another year to show us what they have learnt and what they can do. I'm prepared to give them that time, I've bought my season ticket and I'll be going to every game I can get to at first team and under 23 level to support the team and enjoy the football. That's my personal commitment to the team.

If you are not prepared to give Radz, Orta and or Bielsa, the time, And more importantly if you really believe that the club is being run negligently or fraudulently as RHC and Wex seem to imply, what are you going to do about it?

Personally, I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing some great football again with or without Clarke. I'm keen to see what plans Bielsa has in mind and I'm sure there are going to be a few surprises. We're celebrating 100 years of the club we love, let's enjoy it. If we are a family then that family also includes, Radz, Orta, Bielsa et al just as It includes fans who live all over the world. I would love us to gain promotion in our 100th year, I don't know if we will do it but I think it's achievable, with or without Clarke. But the most important thing to me is we keep on playing the kind of football that gets full houses at Elland Road for the First team and sell outs at Guiseley and Tadcaster for the Under 23s . The people who put the time and money into going to these games deserve that! I'm going to enjoy the year, I hope everyone can do as well. Peace and goodwill to all!

The youth set up in Leeds pre dates rada and porta by a generation so to give credit there is clutching at straws.

27 Jun 2019 12:16:14
Spanish I still love you as I do all on this site as fellow Leeds bros and still value your posts highly . But after all this as you say is a banter site . Whether you agree or disagree my posts are always from the heart and deliberately designed to stimulate debate with cogent argument as are yours . Yes I’m a little frustrated with the use of MB as a device to shut down debate sometimes . It’s very easy to say well I back MB’s judgement over a given poster’s, as a cheap means of leaving them with no come back . But in actual fact no one here even knows for sure what’s in the great man’s mind .

27 Jun 2019 12:18:07
And the revitalisation of the under 23s, appointment of Carlos, the purchase of under 23 level players. Radz wasn’t involved during any of that? Orta neither? Bielsa going to under 23 games! None of that made any difference at all to the philosophy of the club running through all playing levels! It must have been Bates and MC who did all of that!

27 Jun 2019 12:25:55
I think you'll find the academy pre dates those as well Spanish we were producing great players since the 70s even in the 90s when we won the youth cup.

27 Jun 2019 12:27:27
And in your blinkered vision not paying any attention to the failures of Orta and rada with some of the tripe we can't get rid of.

27 Jun 2019 12:35:45
Spanish, for God sake stop biting. Wex is one of the country's top anglers and he has 'the big pike in the pond' at the top of his fishing list. that's you by the way

I don't care who set up the Academy as long as the present keepers enable it to flourish as it has done in the past (there have been many years when not a single graduate made the first team on a regular basis) .

Hic, Happy New Year everybody. push the button. get more bubbles.

27 Jun 2019 12:46:58
Wex You is having a giraffe. Radz re-opened and reinvigorated the academy after the loon pictured in your avatar closed it down. Not giving Radz due credit because the academy existed in the previous century is nonsensical.

27 Jun 2019 12:56:06
If he's taking the credit George let's give the flak how much have the rubbish scattered around and the costs of the ideguchis and the like.

27 Jun 2019 13:14:25
Wex Money has been wasted for sure. Radz is on a learning curve. He doesn't know the game like we do. Let's see what he has in store for us over the next month. If he doesn't cut it, I'll want him to sell. However, I believe he'll buy and loan well this window. The Clarke proceeds will be used correctly in my opinion.

27 Jun 2019 13:27:44
Wex, and another glass of prosecco, thank you so much.

27 Jun 2019 13:28:44
Wasting your time George. Some on here would complain if radz spent 100 million they would say he’s tight and should of spent 10 million more. People are good at spending other people’s money.

27 Jun 2019 13:51:45
I wouldn't complain if he spent 15 million without selling Phillips.

27 Jun 2019 16:00:48
Thankyou George, that was the point I was trying to make about Radz the academy and the under 23s, much more elequently And directly put by you! Wex, never have I said that Radz, Orta And Bielsa haven’t made errors, but not withstanding those, progress has been made!

Axe, you’re right! Not good for the blood pressure!

27 Jun 2019 16:22:07
George you said you would see what Radz did in jan as and he did very little well get off the fence George.

27 Jun 2019 17:52:07
Spanishleeds, it’s a bit like your negative, you can’t be a Leeds fan, you this and that, now you see it and it’s a pain in the bum, we all can’t have the same opinion, some love Radz, some don’t, we can’t all have the love of Radz as you do, no point getting mad about, because some don’t. Opinion is all it is and no more.

27 Jun 2019 17:56:29
You see what I mean, just because you have an opinion you get crap from some on here.

27 Jun 2019 19:38:34
Wex I launched fierce criticism of Radz for his January debacle but it's gone. Why you hanging on to the past? Don't be prejudicial and single out Radz. Prof McKenzie made some errors. Do you want to bash him? Let me assure you Wex lad if Radz don't do the business in July and by that I mean Costa Kent White and I want more quality too I will be equally if not more scathing toward him. We're not at the end of July yet so I'll afford him a second chance. I don't sit on fences bro. Take my word for it.

27 Jun 2019 20:13:43
George, I agree, but still feel the same.

27 Jun 2019 21:46:27
We'll wait and see George looking forward to having you on my side of the fence. Radz will not fail disappoint.

27 Jun 2019 22:17:53
George is a fair poster, outlined his view at the start of last year, made it clear what he expected in January and was critical when it wasn’t done. He has done the same this summer, totally reasonable.

27 Jun 2019 22:21:47
Whiteman, not sure I understand your post but just to clarify. I don’t get angry about people’s views but more when they assume that they are right and everyone is wrong! You pays your money and takes your view on Radz, Orta, Bielsa, Jc and KP or whatever. Arrogance in any walk of life, I don’t like.

28 Jun 2019 07:24:50
Spanishleeds yes mate agreed.
