Re: Derby players Tom Lawrence & Mason Bennett charged with drink-driving

Absolute nonsense of a sentence - it is but by the grace of god that they didn't kill anyone (Lee Hughes, ex-footballer, did the same thing driving recklessly when over the limit but his crash resulted in someone losing their life rather than just injuries, and got a 6 year sentence). 180 hours unpa...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 11th October) Nketiah shows why he should start for Leeds

Managers. I was in the Corberan camp but ive changed my mind, in terms of success as a head coach he is a step down on TC. Personally when MB goes we need to go younger, similar tactical views but experienced. Corberan has worked with some pretty decent Managers and seems to be well thought of. He ...

Re: QSI investment could take Leeds United to 'Manchester City' levels

It's a tricky one as romantically you would want to achieve success bringing the young players through so you have more affinity with them. For me City have done well, they bought the best of the 2nd tier players so that they could get into the big time and then could attract even better players. Ho...

Re: QSI investment could take Leeds United to Manchester City levels

The trouble is the FFP rules have made it harder for clubs to do what Man City did. We could get all the investment we wanted but couldn't actually spend much mor ethan we already have, barring being very creative such as selling our ground to ourselves. I think AR is doing it right in that he is ge...

Re: Leeds will struggle to keep hold of Ben White next summer amidst Liverpool interest

Regardless of whether we go up or not the ball is not in our court. He has a long contract at Brighton and they don't need to sell. Obviously promotion will help us in trying to get him, especially with him playing every match and presumably developing under Bielsa, so you would presume he would be ...

Don't think BPF had much chance with any of the goals - although still just doesn't look like a keeper to me.

Bielsa had Clarke training in a central role in the summer. Presumably he didn't impress.

Re: Enganche

Saying £4m as the loan fee isn't really accurate as it is £2m loan fee, £2m wages and if we'd signed a player we'd have still had to pay wages. I do think we targetted players who were used to the English game this summer rather than the cheaper but riskier foreign signings. I also think they were i...

Re: Enganche

I think Kent was maybe on the original wishlist but as we saw with White, Costa and Harrison we were able to get them in early and that is the key point for me as Bielsa needs time to work with players. Even then it appears he feels he hasn't quite got Costa to the levels he wants as barring the inj...

Quite possible weasel. The lad is blossoming under Bielsa though. One thing for sure, he'll go back a better player than when he joined us
Definitely. I feel he is probably worth more than £20m now given how much english defenders go for.

Re: Ben White

Theres talk that The Seagulls have slapped a £20m price tag on his head. Apparently they are gobsmacked at the improvement of him under Bielsa in such a short space of time. Wonder if the story has been written by the same journalism who suggested City had slapped a £20m price tag on Harrison with ...

Re: Enganche

I agree we need an enganche and like you say Saiz fitted the role. I don't think it is coincidental that Klich's best run of scoring came whilst Saiz was in the team as despite Saiz's end product at times being lacking he drew opposition players towards him and that meant more space for Klich who co...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 10th October) Leeds look like living on the edge again this season!

I am not moaning about players leaving to go to other clubs , that is their prerogative, neither was I suggesting that leeds would miss their talent . What I am saying is that if a player feels that his career is being wasted away in the reserves without even a sniff of appearing for the first team...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Thursday 10th October) Leeds look like living on the edge again this season!

The flip side is having too many players creates discontent no matter at what level as players want to play. All this nonsense about players not being able to play in 2 positions is ridiculous, yes they might have a preferred position but that doesn't mean they can't play other positions to a reason...

I see it is the usual type of story - sources, club insiders etc - no names, no credibility just some gimp making something up likely a Celtic fan trying to unsettle Rangers.
