Not directly connected to Leeds but there is a tenious link. Can I ask (poss Eds) if Derby are wound up, is it immediate or will they complete the season. If it is immediate what happens to the players if it is in Feb. Can they go anywhere as "unattached"?
His name seems to have gone quite lately but are we still interested in Louie Sibley?
By the way when is the decision due?

leodis

{Ed002's Note - They would not be Free Agents without the Football League agreeing the cancellation of contracts and clubs cannot take players on who were contracted during the whole of the previous window. Further complication is squad size.}

Interesting questions Leodis, and I would add another question; what would happen to points gained from Derby? Would everyone’s points just be zeroed? And how can the league ensure that it’s fair, given some sides have beaten them, some have lost, and others (obviously) drawn. It could have a big impact on promotion, play offs, and relegation alike!? #verycomplicated.

Is Erickson a viable option? Just asking.

leodis

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Leeds showing any interest. I would think it unlikely, but he is being offered around.}


1.) 19 Jan 2022 15:46:39
Leo Can you seriously see Rob Price approving his medical? Can you seriously see Ericsson committing to murderball?


2.) 19 Jan 2022 15:59:36
He’s a great player, that’s for sure, but George has hit the nail on the head. No chance would we take a risk on his long term health just for murderball. Under any other training regime, I would have him at Leeds at the drop of a hat!

Journos are resurrecting the Lewis O'Brien deal? If this has legs then it looks like we are building for life without Kalvin. The lad looks a decent DM with his forte being his tackling skills. What he does not seem to posess is an abundace of creativity still if he is a straight replacement then, maybe, okay but I feel we have that already in Adam forshaw. I was a little dubious of him but since his return the lad has been a revelation . Putting out fires where ha can and setting up moves where he can. He has been doing two roles in one and at times been overwhelmed however with help in there and a settled team I beleive he will come good.
As for midfield my want is the old creative Pablo role. Come on Santa!

Corshaw has been magnificent, however, already 30 so not the future of Leeds U.


2.) 21 Dec 2021 09:21:57
It troubles me when we are linked with championship players!
We had a squad of the best championship players from 2 seasons ago and it’s clear they are struggling.

Call it 2nd season syndrome or what ever.
But if we have ambitions to push on up the table to establish ourselves as a premier league club and move away from these relegation fights becoming a season in season out thing then surely we need to be looking at a better level of player.
Don’t get me wrong there’s always a hidden gem out there all Rapha but not many.
I’ve spoken to town fans who say he’s no where near the level we need in the prem and to be fair I’ve watched them a few times on sky and not been impressed.
I know we’ve been linked with better in the passed all over the pitch and never managed to sign any of them but the likes of Torrera, Guendouzi, Nandez or Alex Kral, yes a suspect character in there but those are surely better than a bang average championship player for basically the same cash.
Why not try loan Felix from athletico? Can’t get a game but has undoubted quality.


3.) 21 Dec 2021 19:13:19
I wouldn't mind a few pick of the Champ. O Brien, the Reading lad, Blackburn forward. All in good form and can grow with the club. Wet Sham did that with a few players over the last few years and it worked alright for them. What do we reckon? 60 70mil for the 3 of them. I'd take that.


4.) 22 Dec 2021 08:50:54
I don’t think the club was totally committed in bringing O’Brien in, I believe the amount was agreed on but not the payment structure. Had Leeds really wanted him they would have met their demands. They took a gamble that Forshaw would come good in his return and he did. O’Brien is a decent player but should we be looking at better quality? Most certainly.


5.) 23 Dec 2021 10:10:24
I would like us to but that definitely isn't the board's plan. They want want buy cheap, develop the players and sell expensive.


 

 

03 Nov 2021 16:46:21
I see we are now after a lad from Espanyol (paper talk? ) . I keep reading we are after this or that phenomenon just wish he was an AM phenomenon. Or are we just waiting for Lewis Bate?

IF ronaldo Viera has been playing DM at Sampdoria and IF he has been gaining good reviews what are the chances of bringing him home in January?

leodis

{Ed002's Note - Zip - he has only just joined them.}


1.) 31 Oct 2021 16:26:48
Ed002 Hardly think 39 months equates to "just".

{Ed002's Note - He spent a year at Hellas Verona.}


2.) 31 Oct 2021 19:50:33
Ed002 Nevertheless he's been on Sampdoria books for that length of time plus the loan out shows they probably don't want him anymore.

If you are racist at a football game, you risk getting a criminal record and banned from stadiums, if you are homophobic at a football then the consequences should be the same, it’s 2022 and as much as I’m your typical old school white male it’s ridiculous to think that people in this day and age can’t do and be what they want without all this “I need to come out”. It’s silly really that’s he’s had to do an interview about it. He’s gay move on, who cares!?!? But the media bring it to everyone’s attention and hype it up and that’s where the abuse will stem from because now everyone in England now knows there is only 1 gay professional footballer.

{Ed001's Note - I feel like that post deserves a round of applause.}

Yep, yes, and Aye. Life has moved forward. Great posts.

I read with interest the for and against camps re the board. I can see all sides to the argument fellas but don't forget what/ who went before. Radz has done most things wisely for the club (and yes I know, for him also but) he put his money in the club (he didn't have to) and as anyone will know if you own or run a company there are times when decisions have to be made. Not always black and white. Not always right or wrong and as with Life no one will give you a Crystal Ball. You have to make a decision and live with it.
I am sure if a seer had told him "if you do not spend you will be relegated" then his hand may well have gone straight to his pocket however he (and thousands of us) never foresaw the twists and turns this season has thrown at us, so as I still love MB for all he did for this club so should I also respect Radz for all he has done. Keep the faith, pull together and let's see what the weekend (or even Thursday) brings.

leodis

1.) 16 May 2022 13:21:05
Sorry but by beginning of January window no one especially Radz should have needed a Crystal ball to see the great risk to LUFC premier league status.

Radz and co took an enormous risk not strengthening in Jan and its backfired big time.


2.) 16 May 2022 13:29:38
Bookies have Leeds as odds on favourites for R and this was always on the cards imo

2 of the most pivotal games

Leeds 2 vs Brentford 2
( 3 Leeds players injured during the game then missing for most of the rest of the season)

Leeds 0 vs Newcastle 1
( Newcastle dreadful at the time, hadn't won away from home all season

Bielsa failed tactic of DJ up front, brought on ridiculously as usual Roberts before Gelhardt, gave Joffy just 10 minutes)


3.) 16 May 2022 13:29:42
Great post Leodis!


4.) 16 May 2022 15:28:11
It was pretty obvious we would struggle the moment the transfer window closed at the start of the season.


5.) 16 May 2022 16:52:50
I think the protest chanting should not have been done in the ground, I doesn’t do well for moral.
If fans want to protest against Radz they should do it outside our ground.
If we are relegated I imagine there will be a certain amount of condemnation heading Radz way.
I think there has been some bad decision making, regards to recruitment and also in my estimation, bad timing of Bielsa’s sacking, if they wanted to get rid they should have waited to the end of this season.
Of course mistakes can be made, Radz is only human but what he does next whether we are relegated or stay up, will be very important in the direction the club will take.
I don’t think he needs to guess as to whether the fans are happy, it would be pretty obvious when you’re fighting a relegation battle. Having so many injuries is difficult to forecast, but there was a opportunity to bring in one or two players during the January transfer window. Maybe he regrets that now who knows.


6.) 16 May 2022 17:01:44
Transfers have been abysmally poor, 1 or 2 loans would of helped IMO.


7.) 16 May 2022 17:12:12
Rads has, without doubt, done a great job for Leeds United. He has been a breath of fresh air versus previous owners. Unfortunately, in a similar way to Bielsa, the memories of him will be slightly tarnished by experiences, and lack of definite action this season.
I’m happy to give him another shot, but would much rather it was done, with Bielsa, and a big spoonful of hindsight! And a bigger bag of cash too!
It’s very easy to be distracted with current volatile passion and disappointment, and forget the bandits, crooks and criminals who came before over the last 25years!


8.) 16 May 2022 17:30:17
On the contrary OP I believe it was the ideal place for it to be done

The 9'ers had a big contingent there Sunday, so if this was a joint decision (lack of transfers ) then they also now know what us fans think . And for the future it let's owners know we will only take it for so long


The support was very good yesterday for the team, so it cannot be said that the chants negated the teams efforts .

I not saying anything derogatory about Bubs here, but you think that bubs should not have been sacked as it was too late in season

Well look at burnley, they have gotten the bounce and they went later than us .

Obviously Radz thought he could get a bounce also seeing as his earlier decision has now totally backfired.


9.) 16 May 2022 17:59:35
Unless you are Inside Elland Road. Unless you are inside the Boardroom, you do not know the full truth, the twists and turns. Who said what to who and why?
Maybe the reason we did not get who we wanted in Jan was all Radz fault, then again; was it Bielsas?


10.) 16 May 2022 18:02:57
Maybe we should have bought in Dele Ali and Van de Beek?
Ok I’m being sarcastic but it’s notoriously difficult to get in the right players in January.


11.) 16 May 2022 18:24:49
Chris I understand the manager bounce but I think fans and players alike were a little shocked by the timing. Not only that we were always likely to score with Bielsa against certain teams and I think it was a big call for JM, are we that much better defensively? We also haven’t created many goal opportunities, although it did appear to be a little more like Bielsa ball the way we played against Brighton in the second half. JM will be wise to adopt the same against Brentford.
I do believe we would have won those games against Palace, Southampton and Brighton.

That would of put us comfortably in the clear.
It makes me very sad that we never got the chance to see what Bielsa could have done with better quality of players.
We will never know now.


12.) 16 May 2022 18:42:32
Chris Chris great post how many managers would still be in a job after so many losses he is to blame for not doing it sooner Club comes before manager no matter what they did in the past . MB did it his way would not change anything would not change the players or use others that he had as you say look at others and if he had got in 3,4 players like Newcastle did then probably he would have still been in job.


13.) 16 May 2022 19:11:52

15.) 16 May 2022 19:20:02
Panic set in OP, and maybe, just maybe Radz was told by the 9"ers that bubs time was up

I totally agree with you, in respects of bubs and what might have been with a better calibre of player .
Christ we can never forget some of the football we played under him was incredible .


16.) 16 May 2022 19:39:34
Good post Chris Chris especially the last paragraph, nice one mate 👍👍.


17.) 16 May 2022 19:59:09
That’s just it lads, as you say. People make assumptions based on media tripe, and talk in the stands, but the facts never come out. At the end of the day, we will never know who really is to blame for this season. Simple facts. Sad, but true.


18.) 16 May 2022 21:35:07
We all have got to ask could Mr bie lsa handle really top top players iam not sure but I loved the Mr bielsa but we will never know if could handle the quality quality players it's a shame how it all ended with no proper send of pabs should have been made assistant manager mot roll on Thursday.


19.) 16 May 2022 22:28:52
Leo Inside story on Dele is that he's a serial party 🥳 boy.


20.) 16 May 2022 22:36:39
Baz Radz simply listened to Bub who didn't want anyone in. Bub will have thought Orta would only get him another expensive dud. We should have recruited in the summer of last year but Radz sensing a sale to the 49ers chose not to invest to maximize his money and relying on Bub for league stability. Yet most on here know in the EPL you want to stand still, you must spend. All members of management played their role in our demise and forthcoming relegation.


21.) 17 May 2022 08:47:16
George - apparently 49ers Enterprises also contributed financially towards last summer’s limited investment, so the decision not to make further investment in the squad was not just made by Radz - so the narrative that he kept his hands in his pockets to maximise his money ahead of a sale is a false one.


22.) 17 May 2022 16:27:59
Cluey Hardly. You've just indicated there was an agreement going forward! Everyone knew their role. 49ers relied on Radz who relied on Bub. Bub got it wrong. Simples.


23.) 17 May 2022 22:40:25

12 May 2022 12:55:14
I have studdied my runes carefully, for the past couple of minutes, and they clearly show that next year there will be 10ish faces missing
Firpo, Koch, Raphina, Philips, Klich, Rodrigo, Roberts, Costa, (Then possibly) Llorente and James. That's the hardest job, getting them all off the payroll.

12 May 2022 10:00:20
If, there was only one, almighty problem, then we it would be easy to identify and we could solve it when you have, as we do, several medium problems it is far, far harder to solve.
Whether we stay up or get relegated major surgery is required and if there is money, recruitment needs to be far more stringent. Due diligence far mor. effective. Minimise the purchase of flops. If no money, then all help must be given to the young guns although I feel that some are overhyped and not yet quite ready, two or three must be given a chance to show if they can hack it with the big boys.
It was a thankless task to follow Bielsa so jury is out on Jesse, next season he will definitely be under many a magnifying glass, as for his system, given a full squad of his players, it may work but as of now I have my doubts far too narrow and does not allow for forward thinking attacking style we are used to. On the form shown over these last few games I, like many others, struggle to see where the points/ goals are coming from still, that is the lot of a LUFC supporter, we have been thro worse so we are used to it?
On the Bright Side at least the season tickets will be cheaper next year.

leodis

1.) 12 May 2022 11:47:06
What was worrying last night was seeing us come out and do exactly the same as we had done at Arsenal on Sunday. Four Centre Backs and three Wingers in a starting eleven doesn't work. Despite the Sending Off, to me it felt like we were beaten as soon as they scored, you could see it in the players Body Language. It really is a big ask to get four points from these two games, but it is still possible. Wherever we are next season, a major overall is required.


2.) 12 May 2022 12:04:42
Season tickets went up mate!


3.) 12 May 2022 13:45:50
In true Radz fashion Farsley🤣, he only likes the lolly coming in. He will probably blame Brexit for the increase to watch most prob inferior football next season 🤣.
