Alfie Cuppa

stats of a relegated EPL club against mediocre Champo fodder yet still crucially dropped points against all bottom 8 clubs bar Plymouth .

Alfie would you like to present DF with one of your ' 90 point mugs" ? congratulating him on finishing behind "96 points ( League 1 ) Ipswich"?

28 May 2024 16:18:33
Alf All the more reasons we should have gone up. Farke is limited tactically. He's overly risk averse, his in game management questionable, his lack of rotation costly and his treatment of a couple of squad players very suspect. He's still a keep for me but with the advisory that if he isn't top early on next season his time is up.

Worryingly, do you realize we only truly have like a dozen first team and squad players right now in total in light of the inevitable departures?

28 May 2024 16:40:35
George - we only had a dozen first team payers last season - that's what got us in the end and in a way it was sadly inevitable regardless of what DF did.

We simply didn't have time and/ or finances at the beginning of the year to build a proper, balanced squad.

That can be addressed this close season and hopefully will be.

28 May 2024 17:37:43
What a cracking post Alf! Tekka bow fella! ??????.

28 May 2024 17:39:53
Alf Don't quite share your optimism about the rebuild. Looking at the inevitable departures, the accounting numbers and likely outcomes in respect of the loan players, I think the recruitment team face a very challenging 7 week period to achieve the necessary quality in through the door.

I previously posted we need 15 players. Prepared to accept a reduction by 4 so 11. 11 quality over 7 weeks a tall order. However, I know Miles and Hammond are very capable.

28 May 2024 18:13:46
Thanks Brighty.

There are a lot of moving parts in the coming months George so difficult to make absolutes like that but time will tell. I thought our recruitment was good last summer so I am optimistic and there are bargains to be had out there as Dil's scouting articles prove.

28 May 2024 19:02:01
Good posts Alf, people are drawn into thinking there’s going to be another mass exodus of players like with our relegation. I’m not convinced there’ll be so many players departing. None of us know the financial implications and I think whatever you read is probably just speculation. Having said that there will I’m sure be one or two assets sold.
It’s going to be a very busy summer in trying to sell all the loan clause players, there are agreements already in place for some of them, maybe if all goes well the need to sell our better players becomes unnecessary? presuming they want to stay.
None of us will know that if couse.

28 May 2024 19:20:02
This close season only slightly less "chaotic" than last season, esp with the ffp hammer hanging over us. Quite a lot of juggling to do, but, it wouldn't be Leeds without.
I must say. Hats off to yor post and the homework behind it. The most telling for everyone to remember is the perilous state we were in come first game kick off to where we ended up is nothing short of miraculous and for anyone to call for Daniels head just beggars belief.
Lets just pray that the powers that be have already begun to action Plan B and positive anouncements are already being rehearsed. Good Luck with, for once, a steady ship and a staedy Captain.

28 May 2024 20:32:42
OP So YEP has it all wrong then with their headline the 20 LUFC players set to depart next month? Bad journalism obviously.

28 May 2024 20:55:01
Bloody hell Alf.
You've done some research there bud
Plus kept Baz moderately quiet too.

28 May 2024 21:21:40
Lmao Leeroy.

28 May 2024 22:32:35
@lufcdata was the excellent source, I didn't have to do much.

I think the club hv said there is a likelihood of selling to fund moves so although I agree it may not be as many as some think there will almost certainly be outgoings.

28 May 2024 22:39:34
George, whenever is their good reporting from journalists?
Most of those players out of what you have already posted who are destined to leave are the loan clause players and good riddence to them all.
In our current squad I would say there’s only one player who is very likely to leave and that is Summerville.

I believe Joseph will stay and will have more playing time next season, as for Cresswell I’m not sure.
Loan players, difficult to say, I don’t think Spuds have any plans for Rodon so a good chance he’ll be staying at Leeds, could be another loan or buy.

With twenty players leaving as you say, there’s no football team left and that would only equate administration.
Journo’s love to whip up a dramatic story, it’s what they do, yes and that includes YEP.

28 May 2024 23:12:59
Majestic post Alf ?.

29 May 2024 08:56:13
The YEP has been nowt more than hot air since the legendary reporter who preceded Phil Hay left. (Was it Bill Waterstone or something) ? …. I have loads of cuttings from the Wilko era in U. K. storage, so not to hand to jog my memory.

29 May 2024 11:18:16
Bill Fotherby.

29 May 2024 12:36:22
Hmm. That would’ve been our Managing Director who appointed Wilko, not the YEP sports reporter.

29 May 2024 13:07:40
Yep lol.
