Re: Yosuke Ideguchi

Played for U-23's yesterday but not even on bench today (Shaugnessy and DeBock were). Does he have a future? Will he play for U-23s all year, or will they send him on loan before the deadline?

USA Viewers

Are you finding anywhere to watch the games. All I'm getting is goal clips on facebook. I did listen to the first game on Radio Leeds for about 55 minutes before it shut me off.

Hopes for Carabao Cup

Hoping that this won't be a priority, even though I know our fans can be a little impatient. It's a 46 game season which is tough, all the more so given Bielsa's high tempo. Not hoping we get knocked, but hoping we don't sacrifice anything in the ultimate goal of promotion. That said would like to s...

Re: LUFC Squad 2018-19

O'Kane, Ekuban, Anita, Ideguchi ? Ideguchi provides cover if we don't get another midfielder and can't complain about making a name in U-23s Anita - will have to stay until Xmas due to injury O'Kane - obviously not in plans and can't see him in U23s - move to happen? Ekuban - could play in U23s - su...

Re: LUFC Squad 2018-19

I think Cooper is still there because of our inability so far to sign a CB. Right now Jansson is the only one and Bielsa likes to play 3. I'm guessing Forshaw, Ayling, and Berardi are all candidates to play CB. But even so, we still need at least one quality signing before we can think about letting...

Looks a nasty and easy to beat formation to me, is it a glorified 541?
I'm assuming it's wing backs. That could translate to 5-2-3

3-3-1-3 Squad Needs

I have to admit that I don't know much about this formation, but I'm assuming the middle 3 is actually RWB, DM, LWB - the other roles being fairly obvious. That said I think it brings a new hope for guys like Anita and Dallas as WB's. On the other hand, it looks like bad news for our overload of mid...

Re: Marcelo Bielsa

It's a great coup. Glad it finally happened. I'm sure a big part of the negotiations would have been over player wage and salary budget and hopefully that's going to mean some good quality signings coming in. I' sure quite a few will be on their way out too as several don't seem to fit his formation...

Re: The LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thur 24 May)

Kristian Pedersen Looks like another Laurens De Bock signing. Assuming De Bock is on his way out because they didn't offer Pearce a contract to make him third in line. Personally I'd have used DeB and Pearce as my 2 LB's next year. Hopefully this guy is an upgrade on DeB. I don't think there's a pl...

Re: San Francisco Forty Niners buy 10% of LUFC

This can only be a good thing. First of all we got cash in the bank that Radz said will be spent on the first team. Longer term the 49ers are an excellent organization. They're not the Montana/Rice/Young team of the 80's and 90's but they did go to the super bowl a couple of years ago and they have ...

Re: England World Cup Squad 2018

Welbeck is a surprise and completely undeserved. I hear the comments about guys like Jones and Cahill but we need some experience in defence. I probably would have considered Smalling for the same reason. Only other issue I have is the lack of depth in center midfield. Dier and Henderson have to pla...

He's alright, but along way away from being a regular next season. I'd have preferred to see Sam Dalby start ahead of Ekuban instead, to see if he's ready yet.
My thoughts exactly. I have high optimism for Edmo. But you'd think Clarke and Dalby were closer to making an impact.

Not on the plane?

We knew ahead of time that several of the players wouldn't be going to Myanmar for personal or injury reasons. I wonder if we can read anything into some of the fringe players not going: Wiedwald - obviously Berardi - just missed the last 5 games Sacko - Cbicki - O'Kane - Benefit of doubt, I think h...

Re: Kemar Roofe

He's got great pace. I just don't think he fills any one position 100%. I think he's a great squad player, he just needs to find his place. He could be a Troy Deeney playing off a main striker. Or he should be a great fit on the left flank. He just needs to mature and find his best position. In the ...

Re: Ronaldo Vieira

Back to Ronaldo Vieira .... It seems everyone thinks he's a class player except Leeds fans (the majority at least). Holloway said after the game that he was a class above everyone else. Still I remember going to Leeds games and hearing Gary Speed constantly get slaughtered by the fans. How can a pla...
