Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 23rd January) Leeds throw everything but the kitchen sink at Adams deal

Remember how pissed off Bristol were when we stole Nketiah from under their noses, and it seems that it set their season right back, and they have never recovered from it. I have come up with a novel idea that what we need to do is poach the transfer targets of our promotion rivals, and in particul...

Re: January Transfer Window And Squad Discussion-3rd Adams bid rejected.

Which position are we trying to bankrupt the club to fill in our push for promotion? If you're talking about Nketiah, then correct me if I'm wrong by all means but weren't we going to start him and then he got injured? Not much Bielsa can really do about that and at the time we were winning games w...

More discussion to be had in controversy. I myself will read and enjoy interesting information but if I've nothing to add then I won't.

I think MB owes us another season as he has to accept his inability to keep a talent at the club has put us in this position.
Which talent was this?

Re: January Transfer Window And Squad Discussion-3rd Adams bid rejected.

Its time to bring Super Mario in to sort us out :) "BALOTELLIIIIIII SCORES THE WINNER AND LEEDS ARE CHAMPIONS" :) Failing that. Karlan Grant? Scoring goals for Huddersfield. Only 21 Seems similar to Adams and can play on the wing. Potential to improve (like Adams, unlike Gray). Seems ideal, wave a ...

Yeah, no. At least they tried. 20m isn't peanuts even if we're promoted and I don't he's worth it.

Re: Ian Poveda

Definitely, though DM is going to be the weak area over the next 3 games. Be interesting to see who steps into that gap. I stand by White. We kept a clean sheet the last time he was in Kalvin's shoes, he's got the natural abilities for it, yes he was a bit iffy positionally at times but he learned ...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 22nd Jan) Could stubbornness not lack of a striker destroy Leeds United's seas

"adjective: stubborn having or showing dogged determination not to change one's attitude or position on something, especially in spite of good arguments or reasons to do so." I point your attention to the second half of that sentence. Were Bielsa to entertain fans calling him stubborn he will make l...

Re: Ian Poveda

Conflicting reports. Daily Mail say Poveda is close to joining us (know we mock them but they weren't far wrong with the article Radz said was nonsense) An Italian media source thinks Torino are going to get him. Bielsa really likes Poveda and Adams apparently. Surely we can at least get one of the...

Re: January Transfer Window And Squad Discussion

Despite being a pessimist wpuld you not say that its encouraging Adams is on the bench? Andre Gray is definitely the backup to Troy Deeney. Today The Hoff drops Ings, plays a teenage winger/striker instead. He has now just taken off 1 half of his 1st choice front 2, Long off and Ings on. Adams is 4...

Re: Bamford cannot start another game for LUFC

Seeing Brom go through the same struggles as us last night did make me feel much better, I'll certainly admit that. It does indeed show how random this league can be, how little you can take for granted and how even the poorer teams are capable of taking points off the better teams. A Reading suppor...

Re: January Transfer Window And Squad Discussion

We definitely need to give Edmondson a proper chance, not sure what more the lad has to do tbh. He's been consistent for the under 23s, he's a real grafter, quick footed and there is an intelligence to his game. Indeed, he's got natural attacking instincts, that's clear to see. Worth a shot in any ...

Re: Andre Gray

I think, assuming we don't get Adams or Gayle (who I reckon would tear it up as a Bielsa player - IF he stays fit), the real question is would Gray be an upgrade on Bamford?

Re: Your Team V Millwall

From what I saw earlier in the seaon McCalmont looks a great prospect but is a long way off ready for first team action, especially with a game of this magnitude. I think he struggled with the physicality of Stoke, this will be no easier. Indeed, and Millwall of all teams will try and traumatise th...

Totally agree MB . We're in grave danger here of repeating almost exactly what we did last season , so far no improvement.

Re: January Transfer Window And Squad Discussion

Phil Hay says we are talking to Watford again about Andre Grey. Not keen myself, massive flop at Watford. Very much like Dwight Gayle, class in the Championship but not prem class. So if Watford insist on an obligation to buy if we get promoted we would be stuck with him. And unlike Che Adams, Grey...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Monday 20th January) - Gap narrows as worries of burnout reignited

I've been very forgiving of Bamford up until now but the fact of the matter is a better striker would've sent us home 1-2. It's easy to sing Paddy's praises when the rest of the team are scoring but we needed him to come through on Saturday and he didn't. If he tucked away the 1v1 and the penalty Ka...
