Leeds agree loan deal for Aiden McGeady

Steve evan

According to multiple sources, Leeds have agreed a deal with Everton for Aiden McGeady on loan, now it’s up to the player to choose between us and Sheffield Wednesday. I’m sure he’d be a certain starter for both clubs so it’ll be interesting to see who he chooses.


Leeds linked with Tomlin, Mariappa. But wait, there’s a twist.

Lewis-Cook-v-Burnley




With Byram about to exit the building the least that we wanted was to see Cook, Taylor and Mowatt stay. However it seems Bournemouth are very interested in signing Lewis Cook, their offer would be cash + a player who appears to be Lee Tomlin. Now, Lee Tomlin signed outright would probably be a good signing, but when Cook goes the other way all of that goes out of the window. I know Cook isn’t going to be here forever because we’re not going up any-time soon and he’s destined for big things, but I’d like to at least think he could stay till the end of the season. It’s been rumoured that Cook doesn’t want to go to Bournemouth but he may not have too much of a choice. I really wouldn’t take any amount of money for Cook in January, he’s a joy to watch and I want to see as much of him as I can before he has to leave.

Leeds targeting Celtic midfielder

Leeds United are targeting Celtic midfielder, Tom Rogic, on a permanent deal according to the YEP’s Phil Hay. Rogic is a 23-year-old Australian international, and has made 13 appearances for the national side.

Rogic moved to Scotland from Australian A-League side, Central Coast Mariners in a deal worth £400,000. After finding opportunities at Celtic Park hard to come by he joined Melbourne Victory on loan for six-months from January 2014 to June 2014.

This season however Rogic has been a regular starter for Celtic, appearing in 26 games and scoring 6 goals. He is regarded as an attacking midfielder and for me although we could do with a natural number 10, it wouldn’t be my number 1 area to fill. There’s definitely weaker areas in the squad for me.

Do you think Rogic would be a good signing for Leeds? Let us know…

A 0-0 draw, Berardi injured for months, who should start against Wolves?

The news today is that Gaetano Berardi, who’s been one of our best players this season, is out injured for up to two months. This is a massive blow for us, especially with Sam Byram’s future up in the air, it seems as though we’re going to have to put up with Scott Wootton for quite some time. Anyway, who should start for Leeds on Thursday night?




In goal will be Marco Silvestri, fair play to him, he’s been good recently. He made at least two outstanding saves against Charlton, lets hope he keeps it up.

After Saturday’s win and performance, should Evans stick with the same line-up?

After a great win for Leeds last weekend against Hull at Elland Road, we now turn our attention to an away trip to The Valley. Leeds suffered a 2-1 defeat the last time the two teams played each other last season in the famous “sicknote 6”.

I can’t see there being many changes for one season or another but here is the team I think should start against Charlton on Saturday.

Goalkeeper – Marco Silvestri
Marco made a couple of fantastic saves last weekend and due to not having a back-up ‘keeper I think it’s fairly certain he’ll start.

Onto the defence…

5 things to take from the Hull victory

Tom adeyemi fires in Leeds second goal





Well what a fantastic result for Leeds on Saturday. I don’t think you can take anything away from that performance and it’s an important three points that were thoroughly deserved. Here are five things to take from the game…

4-5-1 works with the right people
Looking at the team when it was revealed, you could tell we were going to play with a three-man midfield, it was just a question of Mowatt or Cook out left. I wanted to see Botaka out there but the result proved Steve Evans made the right decision. Our midfield bossed it at the weekend. Liam Bridcutt was fantastic in the holding role, a player who brought attributes we’ve needed for so long. Tom Adeyemi put in his best performance in a Leeds shirt and Lewis Cook’s just Lewis Cook. His through ball to Dallas for Leeds’ opener was Premier League class.

VOTE: Who was your man of the match against Hull?

We’ve decided on four names and it’s up to you to vote for you think was the MOTM. It was genuinely hard to decide on the four, that’s how good we were yesterday. Read through the options and then vote on the final page.



Liam Cooper – Cooper was solid at the back and gave a proper captains performance, he seems to be getting better every week and I’m delighted to say I never gave him stick (Yeah, I’m cocky)

Leeds United player ratings v Hull

lufcp

What a game, I still can’t believe that first half performance from Leeds, it was like nothing I’ve seen for a very long time. Every player put in 100% and that’s all we ask for at Leeds, the atmosphere was brilliant too. For the ratings;



Marco Silvestri – 8 – Had a good game by his standards, he still needs to improve his catching, or lack of, but made some good saves today and even recovered from a bad error to save a goal, although it turned out to be offside.
