Re: Alfie Haaland's Son

We should sign him. I'd be happy for someone who scores 9 in a season

Re: 100 Greatest LUFC Players - No.8 Allan Clarke

I started supporting Leeds in 1979. Missed Alan Clarke. Heard he was pretty good though.

Re: Sacrifice Who?

If we get anywhere near 20 million for Jack Clarke (after two decent performances and a handful of underwhelming ones) it would be an amazing piece of business. As it stands I think we'd accept just over 10 for him and, personally, I think that's a ridiculously high fee for someone with such little...

Re: Sacrifice Who?

Nice statement from Pontus today saying that he wants to stay. I think Leeds would only let him go if he makes some noise about leaving. So I'm pretty sure we can cross him off. I think with Bielsa staying, Clarke and Philips wont want to leave either. The only question remains as to whether Leeds w...

Alfie Haaland's Son

One of our favorites son was tearing it up today. 9 goals in a U20 world cup game.

Re: Keep/Sell

Keep everyone. We're going to lose a couple of players to the Premier league anyway. After that, add to the squad we have: Berardi, Forshaw, and all.

Re: AS Roma in For Bielsa

He's got nothing left to prove. I can see plenty of reasons for him to stay at Leeds. Money? Maybe. We'd better make sure we pay him enough to stay

Loanees Returning

Pretty good breakdown here on Leeds Live. Mostly disappointments. Guys like Shaugnessy, O'Connor, and Pearce that broke into first team last year seem further away. You'd think Anita would be a perfect squad player for Bielsa but seems to have regressed. Lewie Coyle was much hyped last year but does...

Re: Transfer Strategy

I really don't think Radz needs to change, because I really don't think much is needed. We'll probably lose a couple of players to the premier league at decent fees. And Harrison is the only worthwhile loanee that's leaving. Bielsa did a great job and went really close with the squad we have. We'll ...

Re: We already had the 2 players that would have sent us up...

We only missed out on auto promotion by a small margin. Agree that Saiz alone could have been that difference. But Leeds didnt make a mistake, he just didn't want to be there.

Re: Problems with Squad Size

Didnt help that the club allowed the squad to get weaker in January, Baker and Saiz going. The squad was to small and lacked quality in key areas imo. Bielsa worked wonders but how many of our players are top level Championship players? A couple maybe. Yeah. I forgot about Baker and Saiz. I guess J...

Problems with Squad Size

Does anyone think we just didn't have enough strength in depth to make it? My first complaint was about all the injuries. Seriously, we had like 6 first teamers down, and that's tough to deal with. But I also think we should have had enough depth to get past that. On top of the players missing, I th...

Re: Next season

First thing is keep Bielsa. He showed his class becasue ge really didnt have a better squad than either TC or PH. I wouldnt sell anyone by choice. Keep as many as possible and add what we can. It's inevitable that we'll lose 2 or 3, maybe more. I doubt we can keep Jansson, Phillips, and Clarke. Plus...

Re: Sometimes it's a blessing in disguise

I thought the same thing after we went up under Wilkinson. That squad was much better equipped to handle the top flight than Bremner's was. Although, after 1987, it did go bad before we got things going again. We didn't go up the next year. But, I would see much optimism to go up next year, if we fa...

Re: Goalkeeper

Kiko has been an improvement. We just don't do enough in the final third. I think our squad has been too thin in the run-in - that's the reason for the drop in form.
