I am concerned that we still have no news on the Manger decision to stay or go, I know that he wants a big war chest and Radz needs to find the money to fund it, if MB decided to stay while funds are arranged but then they don't we could see him start the season but then walk out mid season and I believe that will be or down fall again.


1.) 27 May 2019 10:09:32
Whiteman, how do you know that “ he wants a big war chest”? Just because that is what you want doesn’t mean it is what Bielsa wants or expects. With Bielsa, it could be about very specific details of what he wants and reassurances about who stays and possibly goes. I’m not sure the Bielsa shopping list will be huge, more about leavers, staters and replacements. He could also just be winding down the period of time in which Leeds can secure his services whilst he keeps an ear to what else is out there!

2.) 27 May 2019 10:30:50
Spanish i think your last sentence sort of reaffirmed Whitemans point. Radz should be giving Bubs what he needs and let's move on with the summer transfers. We should not be giving him a reason to keep an ear out. His contract should have been ready at the end of April and assurances agreed.

3.) 27 May 2019 11:55:35
If Radz doesn't give him what he needs, he will be off, then we will all know what the situation is.

4.) 27 May 2019 14:04:53
It depends what he wants! So far the only leak has been a list of all the hotels that the team is going to use for away games next season! I wouldn’t prepared to give him everything that he wants without understanding exactly why we couldn’t beat Wigan with 10 men or Derby when we had a 2-0 lead. If he goes he goes, he’ll want to say that it was The clubs fault and the club will say his heart wasn’t in it or his demands were unreasonable, we’ll have another debate on here and life will go on!

5.) 27 May 2019 16:20:16
B won’t got, not after the Villa debacle where he urged the players to allow Villa to score, he had to much self esteem to loose if he does inmo.

6.) 28 May 2019 08:43:25
I don't think the Villa game will have any bearing whatsoever on whether MB stays or goes.

Well done to Lee, one day you may manage Leeds all the best my friend.




17 May 2019 09:58:45
Look like MB is thinking about leaving Leeds Utd, if this is the case who will be next, ?


1.) 17 May 2019 10:04:43
Says who?
Phil jay said last night that bielsa, s family and friends in Argentina said he was going to give it another go next season.

2.) 17 May 2019 10:08:14
Read down a bit Whiteman, we were talking about this yesterday, Bermondsey wants Chris Hughton because he’s spoken to his advisers and he won’t play KP! There’s a group building for Carlos and the year of the yuff!

3.) 17 May 2019 10:38:52
Bielsa 2 needs a plan, worth finding out what the plan is first and whether Radz can give him what he needs to do it. Listen to all the Bielsa criticisms on here, doing Bielsa 1 again won't work either, will doing Bielsa 2 with a few more players mean we beat the Hulls, QPR, Wigan and Brentford’s or indeed the Derby’s when we most need to? I love the idea of Bielsa 2 but it needs and deserves a bit of thought on all sides. Look at all the effort and research that went in to getting him to agree to come, need to do a bit of that before deciding if it is the best for everyone for him to stay. That’s why the contract is set up like that.

4.) 17 May 2019 10:53:18
if chris agrees not to play KP he will be my fav manager since the hock and everyone knows I loved the Hock.

5.) 17 May 2019 12:30:34
Spanishleeds just asking who mate, happy with MB, but again as he said to the team he can do no more with them, so dose that mean he’s going or want Radz to buy a new team, he is Lo after all.

6.) 17 May 2019 13:11:08
Again in English please?

7.) 17 May 2019 17:26:56
Martyn in plan English MAD.



30 Apr 2019 12:42:55
Spanishleeds he said and that is Radz he was going to buy back ER for the Club, that didn’t happen he bought it as an investment for him self, In my book that’s untrue, there is an old saying you can trust thief but you can’t trust a liar. Because you can always move things from a thief but you never no a liar, one of many, he will make money all the way even when he sells up by hold the knife to our throats, on interest in LEEDS UTD. And AL can like it or not.


1.) 30 Apr 2019 13:22:33
As ER belongs to the Leeds United parent company what's the problem? There's no doubt some tax dodge involved but that's what good businessmen do.

2.) 30 Apr 2019 14:12:56
I struggle to understand the point. The ground is in the name of the parent company of Leeds United. It would be a benevolent person who would pay for an asset and then release it to the club for nothing, particularly as the club is not 100% owned by himself. As long as when he sells on the club, the purchase of the ground is included. Also I could not care less if he makes a profit on it as he risked his money in the first place to buy it.

3.) 30 Apr 2019 15:38:04
AL it’s owned by a company, it’s not owned by Leeds Utd, which is what he said, it untrue, You May be happy with that, I am not why Should we pay 2 million every year to his investment mob, might as well left where it was, you may think is no big deal I do and I don’t like someone con trying to put the wool over my eyes.

4.) 30 Apr 2019 15:54:35
Notts, 2 million each year is not nothing yes he paid 20mill for it but once we have paid that back it should belong to the club never to be sold again, you may like it that’s ok it’s your opinion it’s not mine simple and If I choose not to like it then that’s my right, if someone thinks the SUN shines for this man it bloody don’t with me, it’s all good now but that will change, ( my opinion) . I have been a life long supporter traveling many miles, through all the chairman’s up and downs but this tell me he’s not what you think he is, and most important he Lied why would he say it’s owned by Leeds Utd, did he say it’s own by a parent company NO, he said it’s owned by Leeds Utd to make him look good,

5.) 30 Apr 2019 16:31:40
100% agree white.

6.) 30 Apr 2019 18:25:50
It would be a benevolent person who would pay for an asset and release it to the club for nothing. Please understand what I am saying Whiteman. Radz payed for the club and then for the ground separately. 49ers payed £10m for 25% stake in the club. Why should they be entitled to 25% of the ground without paying for it? Do I think Radz is a saint? Certainly not as he has made mistakes and if he owned 100% of the club I would agree with you. But he doesn't therefore I don't agree with you however don't let it bother you.

7.) 30 Apr 2019 19:17:38
It was bought at a reduced rate as part of a deal done with leeds united when it was sold. Or do you imagine you can buy a football stadium for under 20 million.

8.) 30 Apr 2019 19:37:53
No I don't Wex, but £20m or £20 he paid for it. Under Cellino's tenure, he claimed he was going to buy back the ground and never did. Double standards Wexy, particularly as you were very pro Cellini when he was in charge.

9.) 30 Apr 2019 19:41:53
Notts, it won't 😁😁😁.

10.) 30 Apr 2019 20:04:24
Still am pro cellino saviour of leeds united from the hands of ghf but radz is so economical with his money and the truth.

11.) 30 Apr 2019 20:17:27
Double standards.

12.) 30 Apr 2019 20:07:07
Very well explained Notts. Not sure why certain people can’t or won’t understand?!

13.) 30 Apr 2019 22:34:36
Mebbe it's because Radz is Johnny Foreigner?

14.) 01 May 2019 11:32:32
He lied, it’s not about the money, can’t or won’t understand, man😶 on Cellini Wex is totally right saviour of our club, and for that I thank him.

15.) 01 May 2019 18:52:56
Ok, I agree that Massimo saved the club, however, he let the infrastructure go to 🐕 🐕. Now we have, once again, an academy that is the envy of a lot of other clubs. Since Radz took over the first team is 3rd in their league, U-23s top of theirs and in the playoff final, U-18s second in their league, what more do you want?



29 Apr 2019 19:06:12
George, it's very interesting that you didn't get any 💩 from someone on here for you post / comments about Radz say's it all really,
And yes great post mate, hope all your problems are sorted.


1.) 29 Apr 2019 21:02:09
Wtf are you on about now? Radz is the best owner we've had in decades, or would you like uncle Ken, Krasner, or anyone since Ridsdale dismantled the club?

2.) 29 Apr 2019 21:54:48
Al, to be fair to Whiteman, he has been a consistent anti Radz campaigner since pre season. I believe he didn’t renew his season ticket as a protest. That’s some commitment to the cause, which I can respect even though I don’t agree with it. My view is that in a world where Football is a business and therefore people want to see profits and returns, there are a lot worse out there than Radz.

I understand Georges posts about him as well and I’m sure he’s right that he has made mistakes and is still learning about football. I’ve seen Radz at the last few games involving his son and other family members in the pre match activities and my gut is that he would like to stay involved and continue the work he sees that he has started. But like anything, it will depend on what kind of offers might be around.

I think the club is in a a fair better state of health in all levels on the pitch than it has been for years, he must take some credit for helping that happen.

3.) 29 Apr 2019 21:26:07
Al, don’t you ever read other post on here, if you did you would probably learn something, or is it you don’t have the ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️ To Reply to others on here.

4.) 29 Apr 2019 22:00:49
Krasner! Now that’s the muppet I forgot! Cheers AL.

5.) 29 Apr 2019 23:09:03
Whiteman, don’t know which of George’s posts about Radz you are referring to. Unless I missed one. I think George has been fairly balanced about Radz with most of his criticism about the non purchase of James and his view of the state of Radz’s finances. They are opinions but ones very difficult to prove on here. From what I remember about your postings, you don’t feel he has invested enough money on players and more recently you don’t like the way in which has he has structured the purchase of Elland Road and the wAy one company he is involved with will be paying rent to another of the companies he is involved in. Have I missed any of your other criticisms of him?

6.) 29 Apr 2019 23:32:16
Bright Krasner not great but he helped save us and I believe successfully sued Papa Smurf. Anyone who does that can't be all bad.

7.) 29 Apr 2019 23:50:00
I reply to anybody if they make any sense.

8.) 30 Apr 2019 07:48:46
i think rads has done well getting mb was great and he has shown commitment without over reaching which if my mates dad good old steve gibson can prove that villa, sheff wed and derby have done they might be decducted points and miss the playoffs (well leeds would anyway)

rads might of gambled and got in the extra two players needed to get us over the line but that is hindsight

also i think many on here are harsh on cellino, he was mad but did some great things for the club and brought it massively forward, he invested and made the club stable and strong for rads to be able to move forward.

i know many didn't like cellino and i understand why, but i always liked him and now he has left think his era was a good one and brought us forward, although he did bring us the hock which took five years off my life

arghhhhh the hock.

9.) 30 Apr 2019 10:31:29
Spanishleeds excellent post mate, we all have our own opinions, but when someone only has a go when I post is 🥜 then doesn’t when someone else has posted the same, well I won’t say it because it won’t get passed, .

10.) 30 Apr 2019 10:35:49
Whiteman Thanks! Without wanting to sound inadvertently romantic toward you, you were right about Radz. You called it first. I needed more proof so waited until January. I actually thought Radz was going to serve us a treat. Unfortunately, Radz proved you correct and I wish it was different. I said frequently to Wex only a failure to twist in January was inexcusable. Radz is actually still the best owner we've had in a long time but that's not hard! His personality problems are insufficient care for fans, greed and being naive when it comes to the game. As for my problems, they won't go away any time soon. I just hope Leeds cheers me up. Thank you for your good wishes. Also, quick shout out to RHC (Redhotcurrie) , thank you for your support and contributions. Top bloke.



25 Apr 2019 05:01:23
So we have five games to win to make it the the PL let's hope MB has a master plan . Let's get right behind our team the believers and nonbelievers we are Leeds standing together,


1.) 25 Apr 2019 06:07:33
Whitey If we're lucky enough to make it to Wembley, it had better not go to pens otherwise we're screwed. Mass exodus of players on cards should we not make it to the PL.

2.) 25 Apr 2019 07:04:10
George, very true, lest hope we do it in 90 minutes, as for players this is very much on the cards, The only thing is dose Radz have the investment needed, who would you like to see come in to the team.

3.) 25 Apr 2019 08:30:02
I agree, 100% support for the team till the end. We can still do it, what would we give for 3 performances in the Play Offs like we produced against WBA. I hope Bielsa can get the players physically and mentally right for the challenge, he deserves success after what he has achieved with the players he has had to work with.

4.) 25 Apr 2019 10:55:35
Mass exodus to where George? Why wouldn't the players wish to stay and play for promotion next season?
Is this prediction based on Radz finances or you think the players will all want more money and have the ability to get it elsewhere?
Who do you think would be off because IMO without Bielsa our current crop are average at best and most certainly wouldn't be able to hack it in the Premier League just yet.

5.) 25 Apr 2019 13:11:15
Radz hasn't a bob for investment that was plain for all of us to see in January.

6.) 25 Apr 2019 13:32:52
We only actually need 2 wins 😊 one (big win in a semifinal) and the final.

7.) 25 Apr 2019 13:54:44
alfupper if the current crop are only average then no matter who the manager is they will get no more then they have, there is a saying you can’t make a silk stocking out of a scarf, so looks like you agree with George completely new team. But has Radz got the funds?

8.) 25 Apr 2019 14:10:17
Alf Exodus of players based on money opportunity for likes of KP and Clarke and with Pontus based on mental drain, need for fresh challenge. There'll also be a fringe clear-out so bye to Dallas and Berardi and forgotten man Okannot. There'll also be a clear-out of loaned out players because they're carp so bye to Ekuban Grot and co. There could also be a cumulative effect of players leaving which may see others leave who we'd want to stay such as Roofe.

9.) 25 Apr 2019 14:23:04
Whitey Most of Radz funds down Tv rights toilet then he still has the three quarters billion pound law suit to defend. I see him selling.

10.) 25 Apr 2019 14:11:43
I think the clamor for Clarke might have died down a bit with people waiting to see how he recovers from his illness! If we don’t go up and someone offers 20 million for KP, I might be tempted if we were actually going to spend the money on other players, although I think KP will stay another season if he really thinks he can do it. Who else? Pablo will stay here and go to Castellón after another year. Pontus, again depending on the size of the offer, not irreplaceable!

11.) 25 Apr 2019 17:23:55
George yes right again mate, my hope is someone comes in buys the club and ground if Radz will let the ground go, but I See this as he investment made get 2 million each year for doing nothing, can’t see many buying it without the ground, and yes to alI I am not a FAN of Radz and Never will be, I see straight through him.

12.) 25 Apr 2019 17:58:50
Whiteman, I think the days of white knight, benefactor Chairman, ploughing millions of their personal money into clubs has pretty much gone for the bigger clubs. Jack walker died believing his beloved Blackburn would be financially secure and look how long that lasted. It’s a business and in business people want to make money! Would you rather have a”Middle eastern money with a poor human rights record or dodgy Russian money? Be careful what you wish for!

13.) 25 Apr 2019 20:28:58
Spanishleeds, isn’t that what we have now, a man who was only interested in making money, not interested in Leeds Utd, told lies in a round about way I have bought back ED, only to make money out of us later, when he sold up and gone, he won’t care who it’s sold to, Russian money, eastern money, there all in the PL now, look at the top 7 clubs do you believe that Radz can match that investment, no way, he couldn’t find a million in January, if we go we are going to need major investment to complete or we become a yo-yo club, it that what you wish for,
