And as for a list of over 30s why don't you do a full list of every player bought by Blackwell along with their age at the time.

May I also point out that under Blackwell in his first 2 seasons, we played better football than we do under Wise. We play dire football with many wins scraped on the back of penalties. We rarely ventured into the opposition penalty box. It was awful football. We got to the play offs because of Hul...

Do you not pay any attention. FOOTBALL DEBTS ARE PAID IN FULL. If l=Leeds went out of business 2 years salary paid up in full.

Blackwell had a summer to assemble the side rather than inheriting a sh*te one or assembling one in a few days after all the decent players had been bought by other clubs. Pugh played regularly for about a dozen games then found himself frozen out of the team. By the time Preston came in for him he ...

Don't forget that the 2 mentioned were part of an unfit squad that conceded late goals in near enough every match. This summer Wise was able to address the fitness issue (or sorry Wise sat on a beach somewhere while El Saviour Poyet address the fitness issue and signed great players, and put an end ...

Fecking hell if this keeps up they'll erect a fecking statue to Poyet. So everything good about Leeds was Poyet and everything bad about Leeds is Wise's and Bates's fault. Get a fecking grip :roll:

Same old, same old. Blackwell initially bought older players to stabilise a club in freefall, then switched to younger players once that had been achieved. Please feel free to look at his list of transfers and you will see this is exactly what happened. Bates buying players? If that's the case why ...

Suggesting that we kept Gregan is bizarre as he was being slagged off left right and centre by fans along with Butler for their lack of pace. Don't forget that these were the players that had taken the club to the bottom of the division. Anyone watching the play off final could see that we needed a ...

Whether it is bad management is hard to judge. Obviously at the time he was loaned out he was unlikely to feature in the side that was winning matches as to be honest when Derry was first loaned out the team was doing pretty well without him. Admittedly his loan has coincided with us having a bad ru...

Unfortunately Wise seems intent on quantity over quality- I would have preferred to see just 1 or 2 signings with real levels of ability rather than the players we are getting, who are frankly journeymen and will need shipping out after promotion. I think with any signing at our level it is a bit o...

Any manager that spends the amount of money he did on Robbie Savage should not be allowed anywhere near Leeds. As long as Bates is in charge I think Wise is the best manager as he is the only one likely to have Bates working with him rather than against him.

Are you seriously suggesting you'd like to have seen Leeds pay the sort of money Derby did for Savage? I think our signings are a good indicator that the club is looking for players that are hungry to improve and have youth on their side. Players have signed because they know Leeds have the potentia...

I always felt it was a Bates signing rather than a Blackwell signing. Blackwell always wanted to go for the experienced player with little resale value whereas Bates knows that buying them young with raw potential gives the possibility of great returns on minimal investments (a bit like buying the c...

Never rated him anyway, in fact never even heard of him until yesterday so good riddance. I believe we are still after Puncheon anyway which would be a better signing in my eyes (although I'd never heard of Puncheon either until recently).

Weasel, I genuinely think you often talk a lot of sense, although I often disagree with you. However this is the biggest pile of tosh I have read in a while. It shows an almost Twiggs like ability to ignore the facts. :lol: So Derry was fit all last season was he? Answer No - so the fact is Derry n...

Just look at Healy. Played on the wing for us and scoring feck all goals. Playing for Northern Ireland where the team revolved round him and he was amazing. It is very easy for a player to have a bad couple of seasons at club level (Healy wouldn't have been worth much based on just his Leeds record)...

It's ridiculous. Who do they reckon supplies the various supermarkets with petrol? The likes of BP & Esso do. Same as in how Sainsburys insurance is Esures, Tesco's is Direct Line just branded differently.

Esso supplies Tesco petrol.
