Hello, lads! Was reading for few years, but decided to write smth myself as this post is about one of my favourite players and probably the most talented youngster in Russian football - Khvicha Kvaratskhelia Sorry if it’s too long to read…

He came to Locomotive Moscow (the team I’m a fan of since I was a kid) on a trial loan. Our management failed to sign him on a permanent contract, so he went to Rubin Kazan. Our manager (Semin) was so pissed that we lost such a gem, that he resigned cause he can’t work with such a morons. Khvicha was like a son to him (Khvicha was half a season in the squad) . And Semin is a bigger legend for Loko than Revie for Leeds. That led to serious problems with fans as we rated Khvicha very highly.

His current manager known in England as Slut Sky (Slutsky) rates him highly as well and it was him who told Khvicha that he should go to a better league as his potential is too high for Russian PL. According to our papers Slutsky is personally in talks with Leeds, as he thinks our team (Leeds I mean) suits him better and Bielsa can make Khvicha a top player. So Rubin wants him to move to Leeds, I guess it’s now down to fee.

On Khvicha himself. He is highly technical, can beat few players easily, and our league is very defensive. He does it for fun. Can play left right and Center, just don’t care. All the highlights are more than true. On the other hand he is very selfish, sometimes it seams that he can’t see any teammates, but he is young and we all know Bielsa can fix anything. The other drawback he is not falling back. That might be a problem, but again, we got Bielsa.

My biggest concern is his adaptation. He is extremely shy. Still lives with his parents. He still can’t speak Russian, although he was laying in Russia for 3 years.

So I guess he will be a great purchase but may be not for now but for the future. Nearest future. He will need season or so I think. And we will get proper exciting players, with proper training he can be on the same level as Raphinha, but for now is a bit raw. His work rate is phenomenal every manager say.

Hope it was helpful. Cheers from Russia! MOT!

Schastlivogo Rozhdestva I veselogo Novogo goda!
Let's hope we bounce back and please Andrea make us few Christmas gifts.
Wish you all and your loved ones to stay safe and healthy.

We now have quite tough games ahead. We should get as much points as possible because in December we going to face all the title contenders. So we should get as far as possible from the relegation bunch. Otherwise it's going to be psychologically hard for the players.
So, I don't think that Bielsa should start any of the youngsters unless it's due to injuries. Especially in defence. Any mistake that will lead to points drop can effect their confidence. Actually I can see Drameh or Cresswell substituting Ayling and Coops only in case of injury. Bielsa would rather move Phillips and Dallas into back 4.
Although Gelhard and Summerville might come for last 15-20 min to get a sniff.


1.) 20 Sep 2021 13:01:34
White Ruski.

Right now I would play Drameh ( or Baby Shack) over Ayling or Dallas at RB.

We also really need to start scoring more goals in order to try and win matches;

therefore for starters we need game changers coming on from the bench give me Geldhardt over Roberts any day of the week.

2.) 20 Sep 2021 15:07:56
Much as I love Bielsa his stubbornness at playing people in alternative positions rather than bring in a young specialist is starting to drive me bonkers! I would love to see Drameh, Cresswell, Gelhard and Summerville get debuts against Fulham.

3.) 20 Sep 2021 16:28:10
spot on Cambridge; would not surprise me that Bielsa stubborness on this is most frustrating for many Leeds supporters
really hope those 4 young men play against Fulham and are properly involved in first team thereafter.

4.) 20 Sep 2021 20:42:59
Bizarrely that same stubbornness got us promoted to the the Premiership and in finishing in 9th place first season up.
I highly suspect there will be a number of U23’s playing tomorrow due to our very heavy injury list.
Also worth noting that Fulham will be missing some key players due injuries.

5.) 20 Sep 2021 21:20:58
Im sure Bielsa will play the Younglings when they are ready. Have we forgotten about what happened at Crawley already?



29 Aug 2021 15:52:00
Shack looks not bad.




18 Aug 2021 21:04:26
Andrea Pirlo on the comparison to Yorkshire Pirlo: "It's true. In England, there's never been this kind of player. There have been great midfielders over the years with different skills. There's the boy at Leeds, who's a bit of a regista.
But we're a bit different. He doesn't have the same characteristics I had. You've always had box-to-box midfielders, like Frank Lampard. ".




14 Aug 2021 13:24:14
We need Phillips ASAP. And I would like Ayling off, Dallas on the right, Firpo in.


1.) 14 Aug 2021 14:07:07
Man u bring on sancho we bring on Roberts, says it all really. million miles off a top premiership squad.

2.) 14 Aug 2021 14:28:40
Spot on mezz… Different lvl.

3.) 14 Aug 2021 14:28:59
And what if he gets injured again? We need cover for him not a centre half trying to be a midfielder.

4.) 14 Aug 2021 14:54:45
Exactly Mezz, whilst we will never have a scenario like Man u transfer cash, at least have the best cover we can possibly have,

Radz larging it up talk of ER seems very premature when on the field we lack decent quality in critical areas. Hopefully with a few weeks left this window, today might be an eye opener to the powers that be that we need to strengthen.

5.) 14 Aug 2021 15:03:28
Roberts did as much as Sancho!

6.) 14 Aug 2021 16:17:46
Agree Canada Sancho didn't do any better than Robert's our battle was lost an cm.

Is he one for the future?

If Grealish is a 100 mil player and didn’t play as much Euro, KP who was one of the most important players to this side can’t be a 60 mil player.
Maybe the release clause is switched on if we go down or something… Clearly it’s better to have higher buy out clause (80 is more like it) and a gentleman agreement that if a good offer comes we going to let you go for say 70 or even lower if you would be really keen on the move.

And he is just 21. Wales international. Played in the Champions league. Scum to be fair have great players at his position. And he got quite a lot of minutes in this squad.
Ole is a piece of s**t manager. Imagine he would be in charge of our team… we would get relegated last year.
Bielsa can make any average player look more than decent. And if he has a grain of talent (and he does) he can transform into a great player.
I’ve heard that some scum supporters are really gutted that he is going as they see his high potential.

Oh, he is utterly useless. CSKA strikers are not performing still he can’t get into the squad. Don’t think even Bielsa can teach this guy anything.

Well, I don’t mind Asensio if he agrees to a pay cut. He used to be quality player.
Will increase status of the club as well. Such deals shows other players that we are building a serious project.

I would prefer few loans. We have to strength too many positions and I don’t think we have funds to buy quality players as they would cost stupid money. Every team can see that we are in desperate situation. Like Newcastle. They going to be robbed. They need players and obviously have a lot of money to spend. So any player going to cost twice more.
So loans with option to buy would be ideal. I would even be ok with some average or ageing players to have some quality on the bench when everyone will be back.
And for our young lads, they going to have their chance, cause I don’t think all those injuries will end this season. We were waiting all our main players to be back whole season and yet the situation is getting only worse.

And let’s not forget only Rapha hit the ground running. So none of the new signings will make immediate impact. Unless they are world class. And this means we going to pay stupid money and/ or wages.

But if we don’t get at least couple players in it would be absolute madness. We can’t compete with only youngsters on the bench. I would prefer if we had someone more experienced ready to go.

If Bielsa really wants to leave at the end of the season, I think it would be wise to decide on a new manager in advance. So we don’t end up like Spurs. They might even try to get some players for a new manager in Jan to give them time to adapt and blend in…

I don’t want Bielsa to leave right now, but also I’d like to see some dead wood out. No disrespect, but I’m a bit tired of Coops mistakes and Tyler even near the bench.

I’m a bit worried.
First: the players, who were the key to our successful run last season are not showing anything this year. The only highlight are the form of Rapha, KP and Meslier. Others are bang average. Bamford is not that clinical anymore, Dallas is a shadow of himself. Harrison as well. Maybe I judge them based on the 2nd part of the last season, but still.
Second: injuries can as well be the result of training or lack of rest due to Euros (in case of KP) or smth wrong with the medical stuff…
Third: new signings are not bringing anything at the moment. Well we are all aware that there is some time to adapt to Bielsaball. But right now we don’t have that time.
Forth: Bielsaball itself is not new to the EPL. Leeds won some hearts of neutral football lovers and became 2nd favourite team for a lot of supporters. But also every manager of EPL team knows what going to happen. And it seams that it’s not that hard to think of counter tactics. Well Bielsa changed few things, but is it enough?

So I’m a tad worried.

On the flip side:
I have great faith in our youngsters, especially Gelhard! I still think that Firpo can come good (maybe a bit delusional…) and DJ even more (much better than Costa at very least) .
And the most absurd thought: can we sent Roberts on loan and bring back Bogusz. Might be to many brew inside) ) )
Other teams will be struggling through the season as well. So I’m not panicking yet. But if we won’t win tomorrow I might start.

I think Meslier was amazing this season. Can’t blame him much. Distribution might be not perfect, but he made a lot of saves. Mistakes? Nat that much….
