Whao... Nohan Kenneh har en egen side på nettet der han presenterer seg - til fulle.
Undrer på hvor lenge den siden er oppe og går om han slår gjennom såpass som mange av oss mener han er kapabel til...

Vel, over til Nohan:

About Me

 Nohan Kenneh autobiography
I was born in Zwedru City( Grand Gedeh County) Liberia. Born onto the union of Mr & Mrs Daud and Aminata Kenneh. Before leaving Liberia, I used to live with my uncle and auntie. They were so good to me and treated me like I was their son. I have never forgotten the favors they did for me in my early childhood.
I came to the United Kingdom at the age of 7 in December 2010, which meant it was really cold for me to adjust and also very dangerous as I was not use to that kind extreme weather . Immediately after the Christmas break, I attended a primary school called Shakespeare primary in Leeds.  I really loved school and I cherished the opportunity to be admitted to this school to achieve a quality education. In addition to my love for education, I was very much interested in football from an early age. Every single child in the part of the world that I am from dream is to become a professional  footballer. I have always been fascinated by this beautiful game called football and always wanted to be a footballer. Living in Liberia in my early ages, I used to play on the streets with my friends. We would miss lunches and dinners to play for the love of it! In the process, we would come home late and fall in a lot of trouble for breaking house rules.
I  later became interested in Sunday leagues and started playing for a club called Shadwell UTD football club. I played for this club for about 2 years. During my second year with Shadwell UTD , we became champion in our year group, I was the top goals scorer in the year 2013 - 2014. In the immediate aftermath of this achievement, Bradford Academy became interested in me. I started training with  them and played for about 3 weeks. I found that it was very difficult for me to continue playing for Bradford due to the constraints it puts on me and my schooling. I couldn’t cope well with having to catch the bus every time after school. This hampered my chances of continuing to play for Bradford academy.
In 2014, I started playing with York development center in Leeds. While playing for them, we traveled around for many games some were occasioned by various tournaments. My performances in these tournaments captured the attentions of so many clubs. That was when my manager realized my potential and promised me that he will try very hard to get me on a trial for Leeds. My performance at the trial secured a spot for me with Leeds. I eventually signed for Leeds in August 2014. One year into my contract with Leeds, I was given a Preschooler at the age of 13.
One of my most memorable time was when we went to the Republic of Ireland in 2015 for a tournament called Galway Cup. We won the cup!!  I was one of the outstanding players of the tournament. I received the most valuable player award (MVP).
I have now had the privilege to be called Up for England which I believe is another achievement in my life. This will further enhance my chances of becoming a professional football. My first cap for England came in a game against Holland at St George's Park and we won 3:1!! I hope I go on to play for the senior team of England and  win a lot of trophies together with them.
In April 2018, I was called back for England U15s for a tournament in Italy.It was a proud moment for me and family and it showed that we were going in the right direction. It was my first tournament with England and I was desperate to impress the manager. during the tournament  we lost our first game which meant it was difficult for us to go through even though we then went on to win all our matches but we were unable to win the tournament which was very disappointing.
In August 2018, I had another tournament with England but it was my first under 16s involvement so I wanted to impress even more than previous. There were 3 teams involved including England. we won our First match against Scotland 1:0 and had  Turkey in the last match who previously also beat Scotland 2:0!! So it was a must win game for that day and luckily we managed to come back and won 2:1!!! That wining feeling was unreal and it was my first International trophy and hopefully many more was to come.....

My interests
Outside of playing football, I love other physical activities such as going to the gym to keep fit like running in the mornings. I am involved with some school and community voluntary  activities. I regularly watch football matches, mainly in the Premier League and Championships. I have an eye for few professional players but none could compared themselves to the legend Patrick Vieira. He happens to be the man that have captured my admiration with his electrifying displays on the football pitch. The way he plays and the precision at which he passes the ball is absolutely spectacular. I love the way he handle the ball and I have tried to model my style of play after him and emulate his character. My favourite team Leeds  United!!

 He made his debut for Leeds against Colchester United, playing left back for Leeds

Lowry didn't overly impress the Leeds fans in his loan spell at Leeds, with him being mostly played out of position at Left back for the entire spell, he was substituted for Jonathan Howson in the final game of the season against Bristol Rovers with 1–0 down at the time, but his loan spell ended on a high as Leeds were promoted in 2nd place after  scoring two goals to go on and beat Bristol Rovers and secure promotion to The Championship

« på: Oktober 11, 2019, 09:48:39 »
Nok en fin artikkel om Ben.
Denne gang fra YEP.

La det være klart:
Ben White blir ikke permanent Leedsspiller... uten at:
1) Leeds rykker opp
2) Brighton rykker ned
3) Leeds 'slår' en host av andre klubber som også da vil kjøpe ham - en del av de vil være pengesterke...

Men Ben White vil gjerne ønske å signe for Leeds - denne høstferien har han vært på Island sammen med sin nye bestekompis, Kalvin P, og deres respektive kjærester

Former Whites defender says Leeds United have upgraded on Pontus Jansson with Brighton's Ben White
Leeds United haven’t just replaced Pontus Jansson with Ben White they’ve got themselves an upgrade.
By Graham Smyth  Friday, 11th October 2019, 06:58 am
Ben White has impressed in his early Leeds appearances (Pic: Getty)
And a former Leeds United defender reckons the 22-year-old could wear a Whites shirt for years and years, if the chips fall right and Marcelo Bielsa takes them to the promised land.
Former White Ben Parker says the man Leeds have borrowed from Brighton for the season has been “first class” in his first taste of Championship football.

His performances in the first 10 weeks of the season have not only soothed the concerns that arose when Jansson was sold to Brentford in July, but allowed talk to turn to the youngster’s long-term future.

“Going back to when Pontus left the club, I think everyone associated with the club barring Bielsa, his staff and players, was maybe panicking,” said Parker, who made 55 appearances for Leeds and now works for the club’s in-house broadcast operation.

“Pontus is a good player, he was a big character, fans liked him. So when we were looking around at the options, we just had Ben White coming to the club, a young player who had been out on loan a couple of times.

“For him to step up and be an upgrade on Pontus speaks volumes for him personally.”
White’s blossoming friendship with new team-mate Kalvin Phillips is a good sign in Parker’s eyes that the defender is making himself at home at Elland Road.

The pair took a trip to Iceland with their respective partners this week during the international break and are seen together on the pitch before each game playing keepy-uppy with chewing gum.
But it’s White’s ice-cool displays next to Liam Cooper in Marcelo Bielsa’s backline that have endeared him to Parker and everyone else at Leeds United.

His decision making on the ball and his reading of the game – White has made more interceptions per game than any other Championship player – make him an ideal defensive team-mate and a kitman’s dream.
“The fact that he’s gone away with Kalvin with the two girlfriends shows how well he has actually settled,” said Parker.

“In terms of what he does out on a pitch, where he gets judged ultimately, different class, superb. The kitmen must love him because I don’t think they have to wash his kit, he doesn’t seem to sweat, doesn’t get it dirty, never slides in, never caught out of position.
“Kiko must love playing with him because he can just roll him the ball, he might glide past someone, do a simple pass, but whatever he does is the right thing at that moment and that’s what you want from a centre-half.”

White’s ability to pick out a team-mate from long range has been a key feature of Bielsa’s team’s style of play this season.

It allows Leeds to beat a press, stretch opponents, introduce width to their play or put men in behind the opposition defence.
Parker says it’s as much about vision and confidence with White as it is technical ability.
“In possession [it’s about] the way he sees the picture in front of him.

“He hits those diagonal passes we’ve seen him hit, he doesn’t mind hitting those from a deep position and that says something to the players in front of him, they have to work hard off the ball to create that little bit of space for the man on it.

“The option is there for the 50, 60-yard diag’ because it’s a no-risk pass in Ben White’s opinion, it’s something he feels comfortable doing.

“When you speak to a lot of centre-halves up and down the league they’ll be winding their leg up trying to smash it as far as they can, but to him it’s second nature.”
White, also comfortable running the ball from deep, is rarely dribbled past and until Cooper’s injury, had been forming a solid-looking partnership.

Having excelled in League Two with Newport County and handled League One life at Peterborough, White has made his next step up look easy, so far.

That makes it hard to envisage parent club Brighton letting him go without a fight, or at least an enormous wad of cash – they themselves had to shell out £25m for Bristol City defender Adam Webster – and it’s nigh on impossible to picture Leeds keeping him unless they go up.
But Parker can see White in a white shirt for years to come.

“It’ll be interesting to see what happens with his future because you could see him playing at this club for 10-plus years the way he’s going.”

Ingen egen tråd for Michael Bridges? :o

Her forteller han om hvordan laget falt sammen etter nyttår 2000

As 1999, the century, the millennium, ended the Whites were the best team in England, top of the Premiership with 14 wins, two draws, four losses and 44 points from their opening 20 matches.

Eighteen matches later and the Whites were third, 22 points behind Manchester United. Seven wins, four draws and seven losses came from those last 18 outings. It was a capitulation.

“The reason we fell short, we were top at Christmas and there's only to teams that have failed to win the Premier League when they're top at Christmas, Liverpool twice by one point and three points, we lost by 22 points to Man United,” said Bridges.

“For me there's two things that affected us that season. One, we didn't know how to win it. We hadn't been there before. It was untouched territory and we lost sight.”

Much of that O’Leary side were young, finding their feet and surpassing all expectations. Lee Bowyer (22), Bridges (21), Ian Harte (22), Harry Kewell (21) and Jonathan Woodgate (19) all made more than 30 league starts in that season.

Tragedy off the field inevitably played its part on the pitch as football took a backseat in the players’ minds.

Even before events in Turkey in April 2000, United had their first wobble with only two wins from seven matches between December 28 and February 26.
Another five matches went by without a win either side of the UEFA Cup semi-final first leg.

“It didn't sit well and I think a lot of the lads were petrified. That was the decline of our season and the naivety of not winning it before.

“I know Fergie (Sir Alex Ferguson) won it with a young team and they went on to win it again. They knew how to get there, we lost sight and think that came from having a young team at the time and an inexperienced manager that didn't know how to get there in O'Leary.

“He was untouched. We were living on the crest of this thing and something came and just blindsided us completely.

“It was a tragedy that affected everybody. Everybody related to the football club, not just the players. Everybody.”

« på: Oktober 10, 2019, 18:37:55 »
Leeds-Live's søsterorganisasjon, wolves-live, blir bedt om å bedømme Costa:

Noen utdrag:

Costa had endured his most difficult season at the club before he departed. After arguably being the best player in the division in 2016/17, he became a key cog on the club's promotion the season after.

He, along with a number of others, were expected to make the step up to the Premier League, but he was one of the few that ultimately, failed to do so

It would be unfair to say he had a bad season in 17/18. He played a vital role in one of the best sides to every ply their trade at level.
In truth those performances at the start of his Wolves career set a precedent few players would be able to live up to, he was THAT good.

Have Leeds United evolved under Marcelo Bielsa in year two?

How do Leeds compare to last season beneath the surface?

By Josh Williams  21:00, 9 OCT 2019

How has Bielsa's side changed?

Marcelo Bielsa made quite the impact in England last year, having arrived at Leeds United almost as a mythical figure amongst football fans.

The Argentine took charge at Elland Road and quickly transformed the fortunes of the first-team squad and the club as a whole.

Promotion wasn't secured despite Leeds being in the top two positions for the large majority of the campaign, but the team did show up as arguably the best in the division statistically.
This season, Leeds are again positioned near the top of the table but their start to the season has been less flawless in terms of results. Bielsa's side have played eleven matches and lost three, and are currently placed in 5th.

The question then, is whether Leeds have evolved under Bielsa in year two, and if they have, then how?

Football is very much a results-orientated industry, but often, spectators fail to consider the factors that have an impact on results. Arguably the most prominent, is performance. More often than not, if a team gets the performance right, the result will follow.

Luck and fortune will always play a part in football, but ultimately, performance is a crucial and accurate gauge of a team's level.

In Bielsa's debut year at the helm, Leeds become the masters of performance beneath the Premier League in many areas.

First of all, let's focus on attack.
Expected Goals (xG) is a very commonly used performance indicator. The metric offers an insight into the likelihood of a shot being scored by considering aspects such as difficulty and location, and it tends to provide an accurate summary of whether a team deserved fewer or more goals based on their chances.
Last season, only Villa posted a better xG total than Leeds with 81.2 goals compared to 79.7. The team's xG per shot, though, which offers an insight into how clear-cut a team's chances tend to be on average, placed Leeds as only the 19th-best.

Bielsa's team commanded possession more so than any other, with their average share of 62.9% bettering second-placed Brentford by 4.2%. Moreover, they also shot more than any other side, with their total of 767 dwarfing Villa in second with 671 shots taken.

Have any of those numbers changed this season?
In terms of xG, Leeds are now top rather than being positioned behind Villa as was the case last season. Bielsa's side have an xG of 23.2 so far, which is considerably more than second-placed Fulham on 17.3 xG.
Also, Leeds' xG per shot appears notable better this season. Last year, the metric placed them 19th, but they are second this season behind only Preston North End who's numbers have benefited significantly from penalties. This means that this season, Leeds are creating clear-cut chances more consistently.
Leeds United's xG per shot ranking

2018/19        2019/20
 19th             2nd


Correct as of 09/10/2019
The team are averaging around the same amount of possession with 63% this time around, and they are still shooting more frequently than any other team, with 176 so far compared to second-placed Fulham's 162.

So in attack, Leeds are still shooting frequently, they are still dominating the ball as much, but they have improved regarding how clear-cut their shots tend to be.

What about the defensive side of the game?
Expected Goals Against (xGA) applies the same logic of xG but in a defensive sense, with only Sheffield United posting a lower xGA figure last season than Leeds, meaning that they had a pretty solid defence.

Bielsa's team also faced fewer shots throughout the course of the last campaign than any other team.

In terms of pressing, Passes Per Defensive Action (PPDA) offers an insight into how frequently a team presses, by measuring how many opposing passes are allowed before a defensive action is made to regain the ball. The lower the figure, the fewer passes a team allow before pressing.
Leeds posted the most aggressive PPDA figure in the division last season with 6.3.

Have any of those changed this season?
The answer again is mostly no, as Leeds are currently second for xGA behind only Brentford, as well as facing the fewest shots in the division so far. The team's pressing is also largely the same, with the PPDA this season being 7.01 which is slightly less aggressive than last season but is still enough to suggest a high press is present.

Leeds United's Passes Per Defensive Action (PPDA)

2018/19   2019/20
6.3           7.01
 Correct as of 09/10/2019

Ultimately, based on the numbers at least, Leeds are still very much the same side. The only real difference is that this season, their average shot seems to be significantly more clear-cut compared to last year.
If Bielsa can ensure that his team continue to post these performance figures, it's highly likely that they will attain promotion in May.

Også Graham Smyth i YEP tar opp Berardi-utvisningen i sin ukentlige dybdeartikkel.

Han skriver, som alle ser, de hittil tilgjengelige bildene påviser ingen kontakt fra Berardi, tvert imot viser de en spiller som faller to steg etter den evt kantakten…

Yet, having reviewed the footage, apparently from an angle as yet not made public, they did not see enough in Bradshaw’s tumble to warrant passing it on to another panel.
When there is a suspicion that a player has successfully deceived a match official, the case is referred to an official ‘successful deception of a match official’ panel.

It can only be the case, therefore, that they watched Bradshaw pass by Berardi, take a step and then go down, and saw something the rest of us are not yet privy to.

They decided it was either indeed a foul and a penalty or a mere slip, perhaps.
A theatrical slip.

If the extra footage the commission has seen is strong enough evidence to clear Bradshaw of any suspicion, why not make it public and clear the situation up once and for all?

Jeg håper og tror vi kommer til å rykke opp i år, men når jeg ser i kamp etter kamp att vi har dommerene imot oss så begynner jeg å lure. Hvis det stemmer att dommeren har gitt Leeds 4.røde på 10.kamper så må han bli fratatt muligheten å få dømme Leeds.

Tenker det er greit å se og vite hvilke situasjoner som har gitt rødt da. Det kan jo være at de tre andre var soleklare.  :)

Vicptr Orta intervjues igjen - ikke såå mye nytt for de som har lest tidligere intervju.

Men en interessant sak med norske øyne, trukket frem for å vise hvor fort 'hele Europa' oppdager nye talent:

There are now few undiscovered gems in football now because of the plethora of scouting data and videos, Orta said.
“We were going to watch a winger in Bodo Glimt, Hakon Evjen (who signed for AZ Alkmaar in September), and it was the third time he was in the line-up, at 16 years old.
“We watched and said, ‘Wow, he’s good.’ We travelled to watch his third start and all the scouts were there, from around the world. There were 15 scouts, all the big clubs. Then he is going to Holland.”

Vel, merk dere hva Hay nylig svarte i en Q&A-session:

Hi Phil. Loving your work at the Athletic. I know Bielsa is notoriously difficult to read but, do you think the Leeds job has got under his skin?

oh yes. That isn't difficult to read. I reckon this is probably as close a job as he's had to Newell's Old Boys in terms of his feelings for the place (although nothing will touch NOB for him).

Det røde kortet er nå omgjort og Berardi slipper karantene, står på den offisielle sida vår!

Det er den uthevede biten som er utrolig!!!

Millwall's Tom Bradshaw will not be cited for deceiving a match official. FA says that footage of the incident was reviewed and showed contact was made by Berardi. On that basis it wasn't referred to a three-man panel of ex match officials. #lufc

Daniel Chapman tar Bielsa på ordet og ser på Berardis åtte... ehh kanskje snart 7 røde kort i Leedskarrieren...

Daniel Chapman: Taking Marcelo Bielsa’s suggestion and analysing Gaetano Berardi’s eight Leeds United red cards
Published: 07:07   Updated: 07:20  Tuesday 08 October 2019

“We should analyse if those red cards were fair,” Marcelo Bielsa replied, to a question after the weekend’s defeat to Millwall about Gaetano Berardi’s eighth sending off for Leeds United.

I like a challenge, especially one that involves uncovering conspiracies against Leeds. Even if they’re imaginary. So I rewound to Berardi’s debut against Accrington Stanley in August 2014, and – and yeah, he’s tried two-footing the lad round the neck there, actually. You’ve seen them given.

After that the picture is less clear cut. There are the double yellows against Huddersfield – that one a month after his debut – and Cardiff in February 2018, accumulated through mistimed lunges as attackers zip by. Bielsa had a phrase for those, and the similar straight red against Sunderland in April 2018: “When you give everything on the pitch, the player with those features can arrive late.”

Bad tackles happen, but none of these reached the levels of Roy Keane at his most sinister.

Then there are the injustices. Does Berardi make that frustrated lunge against Derby in the play-offs if one of the two fouls on him is given seconds before? Maybe. But against Rotherham in November 2015 the bloody evidence that Berardi was sinned against was pouring from his nose, when he replied to Leon Best’s elbow with a two-handed push in his chest.

It was a restrained reaction in the circumstances; Berardi’s reward was a red card on the day, and another nose-smashing elbow from a Rotherham striker in the return game. This time Matt Derbyshire was sent off, and Berardi settled for punching the grass. The ref’ must have thought about that but kept his card in his pocket.

Bristol City manager Lee Johnson claimed Matty Taylor’s nose was somehow broken when he dived theatrically backwards from Berardi’s face in October 2017; once the suspension was confirmed, Taylor emerged from beneath his bandages to smirk that, actually, he was fine.

Which brings us to Saturday, and referee James Linington’s fourth red to Leeds in 10 games, after previously sending off Bellusci, Byram and Bridcutt. How tempted he must have been to show a red to Bielsa.

Eight red cards to one player is a club record for Leeds, just in time for the centenary celebration of the club’s history. So Berardi will, at least, be remembered, raising his head above the parapet of anonymity where too many Leeds players have hidden in recent years. Really, who were they all? It’s a shame it can’t be for his excellent performances in the first leg of the play-offs against Derby, or last Tuesday night against West Bromwich Albion, because those get forgotten as soon as he’s shown red in his next game.

But none of us get to choose how we’re remembered. This seems a good moment to remember Bill Poyntz who, in 1922, scored on his debut then, in the next match, became the first Leeds United player to be sent off, for trying to kick a Bury player.

He got married in the morning of United’s next game, against Leicester City, then scored a hat-trick in the afternoon as Leeds won 3-0. Poyntz’s Leeds career fizzled out after 29 games and seven goals, but here we are talking about him. History isn’t always about glory.

Berardi might not have the record for long, anyway, as the club are appealing. That’s a welcome move after spending last season on the receiving end of the authorities’ capricious – ie in the case of ‘spygate’, made up – punishments. For a club that built its identity upon injustice, Leeds have always been slow to make their case. After the riots in Paris in 1975, the board accepted a four-year ban from European competition with barely a murmur; manager Jimmy Armfield, knowing it was unfair and knowing it would hinder him from signing top-class players, flew to Switzerland to fight UEFA alone. The ban was halved, and the Leeds board, eventually, refunded his travel expenses.

Overturning Berardi’s red card will only remove a one-match suspension. But at least it will put that unwelcome record eighth red back in the pocket, until another referee finds another reason to bring it out. Television pundits blithely agreed that, even if the rules say Berardi’s red at Millwall was unfair, his past record means the rules of fairness no longer apply to him. That is, funnily enough, how Leeds have often been judged as a club over the years.

Gaetano Berardi belongs in our record books, whatever the reason. “Berardi is a loyal player and he gives everything on the pitch,” says Bielsa. Leeds United was always the club for him.

Well done to #lufc u14s on a 7-0 win against Hull City this morning while the U13s grabbed a 2-0 win and the U12s won 7-3

“There is no denying it. Everybody in the stadium saw it. It wasn’t a penalty, has never been a penalty. Now he is sitting in his little room over there and thinks it’s acceptable to make a decision and then he’ll go home and he’ll sleep alright. But I know I won’t, my players won’t and most of my fans won’t.

“Is it acceptable? No. Am I probably going to get into trouble? Yeah. But should he get in trouble? Yeah. He shouldn’t be reffing. He shouldn’t be able to ref the next game…

“…It’s an absolute disgrace how he can make that decision.”

Ja.. hva skal man si
Korrekt :)

Du fant den selv, ja :)

Dette var altså Bowyer om samme dommer...


Nei? Men merker jeg ble nysgjerrig på å få servert en link? ;D

“He shouldn’t be reffing. He shouldn’t be able to ref the next game. A disgrace. And if I’m getting in trouble, he should get in trouble. It’s as simple as that.” - Lee Bowyer on James Linington last season, who was the referee for Millwall v Leeds today.


Dommeren der bør jo bli utestengt noen kamper og degradert 2 div ned.
Det er jo det aller viktigste her. Dømming på slikt nivå ødelegger fotballkamper
Dommeren har jo perfekt 'side-innblikk' - eneste at det kanskje gikk litt fort though...

Jo, men de kan ikke bruke den unnskyldningen på alt de ikke ser eller alt de dømmer feil.
Forståelse for spillet, at man er godt trent og at konsentrasjonen er tilstede etter 5 minutt bør være et absolutt minimum for å dømme i en av de beste ligaene.
Vi ser jo tydelig at nivået og rammen rundt er for mye for denne dommeren og takle.

En spiller hadde blitt benket etter en slik horribel blunder, en trener hadde fått sparken.
Han her får vel lov å tusle rundt å levere langt under pari hver helg sesongen ut regner jeg med.
Du fikk med deg Bowyers slakting av samme dommer etter en Charltonkamp i L1 i forrige sesong?
