Re: Rival Watch

Funniest thing I've seen connected to Leeds screwing it up. Been viral all over the web so apologies if you've seen it (we get a mention but sadly not for a good reason) https://youtu.be/wnmseY6ibj0 Lovely stuff. :lol: Stopped watching 20 seconds in. Maybe I’m being pedantic but long subtitles at a...

Re: Championship free agents... who would you have?

After the experience of the past few years, I'm anxious of experiencing journeymen looking for their next pay check. I hope Howe and Gomes grill the character of any potential signings to ensure they have the hunger and fight; why were they released from previous clubs? There can be good reasons and...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Couple of great goals in 16/17, but hasn't offered enough in 3 years. Leaves space for Olise/Barrett to take up a squad role (assuming we have very little money and higher priorities to spend it on). Good decision that won't surprise anyone.

Re: Next season

To be honest I wasn`t overly impressed with JGs press conference today, when asked about the summer transfer window and the loanees he kept referring to the FFP rules, I don`t expect him to give us false hope but it was pretty depressing reading. I'd rather a dose of honesty than false promises per...

Re: The League of 4

If you look at Gomes' opening games, we got 1 point from 3 games which distorts things. If you really want to see how good we are recently, I'd look from the start of February when we got our loanees in. I don't know the stats but I'd expect we're top half.

Re: The Danny Loader conundrum

Maddison was truly exceptional last season; probably the stand out player in the league. I agree that a new contract is a good idea like we've done with Rinho and Meite this season but I'd be surprised to see him scale those heights so soon. Remember Maddison was 2 years older last year than Loader ...

Re: The Danny Loader conundrum

Think Loader would end up being a deep striker under Gomes next season. He sees the front 3 as interchangeable during a game so Loader I guess should just be labelled as an attacker. We are probably losing 3 potential attackers so Loader could well end up being first choice. I'd sincerely hope our ...

Re: The Danny Loader conundrum

Lets face it, with Baldock, Bodvarsson and Oliveira not being here next season I would imagine we will need Danny Loader so as much as I think he isn't the answer he might be our only hope so theres no point in doing anything other than backing him to the hilt. This is where I'm slightly confused, ...

Re: Rival Watch

We're doing well on that front at the moment. Norwich, Sheffield United, Bolton, Ipswich, Rotherham gone Fulham, Brighton/Cardiff confirmed replacing them Then maybe Luton, Portsmouth, Charlton to come up as well As a man relocated in the North I'm hoping for Barnsley and Sunderland. Leeds bottling...

Re: Which of the loanees would you prioritise?

The really frustrating thing is if we hadn't pissed money away on players like Aluko and Edwards in 2017 we'd have a decent chance in bringing them all back and we'd quite possibly be looking at a top 6 push next season

The Danny Loader conundrum

Looking to next season, there are a lot of split views on Danny Loader. Clearly he has talent. He tears up the U23s; he is an England U17 world cup winner and capped for U19s too, in a talented generation. On FM19 he's immense (a game I know) Yet he hasn't quite looked ready for the first team this ...

Medium/long term prospects

Now we are basically safe, I feel there's a contrast with 12 months ago. When we stayed up last season, we limped over the line in uninspiring fashion and there was a real sense that we would be relegated sooner or later. Years of ownership changes, mismanagement at Board level and poor recruitment ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I think our defence requires the least work. We need to bring back Miazga (unlikely) or bring in AN other as first choice partner for Moore. But we have depth in the full back positions, while I think 2 of Holmes, McIntyre and Osho can provide cover (send one of them on loan). In midfield I think we...
