Ordet er fritt / Pre season 2024/25
« på: I dag kl. 10:10:56 »
Kan være greit å samle pre seasonstoffet i en egen tråd. :)

YEP med en grei oversikt over hvem vi kan vente inn allerede om en drøy uke, og når de andre er ventet...

https://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/sport/football/leeds-united/when-every-leeds-united-player-will-begin-pre-season-as-tournaments-complicate-thorp-arch-return-and-defender-faces-awkward-reunion-4672599

A number of Leeds United players will report back for pre-season testing and training provisionally during the first week of July as Daniel Farke and his squad prepare for the upcoming 2024/25 Championship campaign.

The Whites' training ground plans are unlikely to be affected by loan exits and takeover uncertainty as was the case last summer, with Farke and his staff ready to take training on day one of pre-season this time around.

Leeds will contest friendlies against LaLiga side Valencia, League Two Harrogate Town and as yet unnamed opponents, believed to be in Germany, during the club's unconfirmed pre-season tour before the Championship opener on the weekend of August 10.

Several members of Farke's squad are currently away on international duty, representing their nations at tournaments such as Copa America and the European Championships, while some have only just gone on their summer breaks due to end-of-season commitments with their countries. Here is a breakdown of when each Leeds player can be expected to return to Thorp Arch ahead of the new campaign.

👋 Max Wöber has said his goodbyes to Borussia Mönchengladbach teammates and says fresh talks over his #LUFC future will take place after #EURO2024. In the meantime, 26 y/o would like to become European champion, followed by a 2-3 week holiday.

Det ser ut som vi får solgt Roca uten at det blir minus på FFP-kontoen :)
Leeds-Live-Cross rapporterer:

Progress this morning between Leeds and Real Betis. Marc Roca expected to seal permanent switch in coming days.

United pleased to get wages off the books and will not mark up a loss on PSR with fee secured. Two years left on his deal after arriving for around £10m. #lufc

With Roca's incoming transfer fee amortised over his four-year contract, Leeds would need to see around £5m at a minimum from Betis to prevent a PSR loss. #lufc

All the things that make Leeds attractive as a football entity for prospective signings — big fanbase, historic club, Premier League ambition — make them a commercial success. They benefit each other symbiotically, as football finance expert Kieran Maguire explains.

The €34million (£28.8m; $36.5m) made from kit and merchandising sales put Leeds level with Scottish giants Celtic, ahead of Fenerbahce (€31m) of Turkey and Inter from Serie A (€26m). The gap to the world’s biggest clubs is vast. Barcelona lead with €179m and Liverpool are the top English club at €132m. But Leeds are consistently the biggest second-tier club in Europe.

All the things that make Leeds attractive as a football entity for prospective signings — big fanbase, historic club, Premier League ambition — make them a commercial success. They benefit each other symbiotically, as football finance expert Kieran Maguire explains.

“If you go back to the last season Leeds played in the Championship before parachute payments (2019-20), their commercial income was around 60 per cent of the total revenue,” he says. “That is unheard of among Championship clubs.

Jeg så ingen kamper med Wöber i Bundesliga i fjor. Men han spilte det meste (25 kamper) på et helt all right Bundesliga-lag. Han gjorde et godt inntrykk i starten av Leeds-oppholdet. Han spiller fast på et knallsterkt Østerrike-landslag.
Jeg er ikke med på dissingen av hans kvaliteter.

Om han kommer tilbake til Leeds nå vetvel ingen ennå. Men at han vil ha kvaliteter Leedslaget trenger i Championship mener jeg er hevet over enhver tvil.

Men det er jo bare min mening. 🙂
Kvallsterkt sammenlignet med Norge regner jeg med du mener da?
I en sånn normal fotballverden ligger de vel ca rundt Ungarn, Ukraina, Polen ish i kvalitet?
Kvaliteten på Woeber er vel nedre del av den coren av spillere som det nivået representerer overall rent kvalitetsmessig.
Så at CC kan være en destinasjon er vi ihvertfall enig om.

At mangel på fart, timing og spilleforståelse i et tankesett (ralph ragnick) som er ganske likt Jesse Marsch er dissing var vel litt drøyt hvis det var meg du ble provosert av. Med hans mangler mener jeg: For Østerrike - modig opp mot Frankrike kollektivt sett, men desverre for Woeber og med hans store mangler når spillere trekker han ut og bruker korridorene bak han, veldig synlig mot bedre motstand. Vi så  det for Leeds da vi møtte de sammen problemene i et ganske likt tankesett og vi så det i går igjen. Han så fryktelig usikker ut.
Vil faktisk påstå at han var heldig som ikke ble sendt av banen. Uten tvil såpass synlige individuelle svakheter som Frankrike hadde sett seg ut på forhånd og som de vant kampen på.
Et veldig smart trekk av Ragnick og bytte han ut.

De fleste som kommenterer her ønsker jo ham ikke tilbake, så innlegget var generelt og ikke rettet mot noen spesiell. Østerrike hadde inntil igår bare ett tap siste 16 kamper og ble av ‘ekspertene’ i studio sett på som et vanskelig lag å spille mot - noe mesterskapsfavoritt Frankrike fikk erfare. De er nr 25 på FIFA-rankingen.
Ellers er mannsmarkeringen til Rangnick ikke noe vi driver med lenger (heldigvis). At en spiller med gult kort ble byttet ut etter hvert så intens som kampen ble var smart av treneren, ja.

Men ja, det er innafor å ikke ønske tilbake en spiller som ‘flyktet’ til Bundesliga heller enn å bli med ned i Championship. Men at Wöber har kvaliteter å spille både på midten, i midtforsvaret og som venstreback i Championship for oss mener jeg altså er hevet over enhver tvil.

Meg om det. 🙂

Phil Hay endrer arbeidsforholdene sine hos The Athletic. Han kommer nok fortsatt innimellom å skrive om Leeds United, men:
From today, I’m moving into a new position at The Athletic, producing our global football newsletter full-time. It doesn’t mean I won’t ever write about Leeds again, and the scale of our coverage won’t change either, but the baton is passing on after 18 years home and away.

Nancy Froston har allerede en tid dekket Leeds, men at det var en gradvis overgang ante jeg ikke før i dag tidlig. :o
(Det vil ikke bli det samme, det vil ikke det...)

Anyways, i dag beskrev Hay sine 18 år som Leeds-korrespondent.
https://www.nytimes.com/athletic/5542160/2024/06/12/what-ive-learnt-covering-leeds-for-18-years-grudges-greatness-toilet-selfies/

I was 25 when I started covering Leeds United. I also had hair.
...
The first thing Leeds teach you: they’re everywhere.
....

Because the play-offs are something Leeds don’t do. Leeds to the play-offs are Napoleon to invasions of Russia. Enter with troops massed behind you and die in the snow. They don’t do simple, they don’t take the clearly-marked path when there’s a minefield to explore but they don’t throw the towel in either. I saw capacity crowds in League One. I saw full away ends at Hereford United, Yeovil Town and Hartlepool United. Leeds rarely get their ticket allocation system right because there’s no way of getting it exactly right; too much demand, too few seats, forever a battle to go to Millwall (again).

....

There’s a marvellous talent around here for holding grudges. Take Michel Kitabdjian, for transgressions in 1975. Or failing that, Ray Tinkler for transgressions in 1971. Or Alan Smith. Or any of the owners, coaches or players who contributed to their post-2001 demise. It might sound petty but the closer you get to Leeds, the more you appreciate the way in which their supporters have been asked to stomach incompetence, ineptitude and promises written on cheques which had zero chance of being cashed. Leeds are an example of only being as good as whoever’s letting you down next.

...

Og om presset:
For players and coaches coming through the door, the thought of pleasing a starved fanbase fanned their egos but the pressure caused by a 21st-century timeline of emotional trauma was usually too heavy to bear. You don’t get a free pass at Elland Road and Leeds people don’t suffer fools, but the way in which Marcelo Bielsa will be feted forever and a day here tells anyone that tangible achievements which touch the soul turn you into royalty.

...
The boys from the Don Revie era are deities too.
I’ll tell you this for nothing: Eddie Gray needs a statue, if not two.

...
Eg kunne tatt med mer, men det går jo ikke, men slutten:

On my way out of the YEP, as it’s known, I wrote something which has followed me around since: “An astonishing number of people despise Leeds United, or what Leeds United stand for. But this club was never made for them.”

I think that holds true, even if the reasons are slightly intangible. Those who follow Leeds would probably sum it up like this: if you know, you know. And if you don’t get it, you don’t matter.

Stick to that mantra. And keep living the dream.

Lurer på om Jack Clarke mener han er klar for Premier League nå eller om han vil gjøre det med Farke og Leeds. Med Summerville og kanskje Gnonto også ut mååå vi ha inn nye på kantene.

Det er sikkert en del å velge i men Clarke er en vi veit er god i Championship.

 Det er vel snakk om 3.keeper-rollen her. Antar at Klaesson også forsvinner. Hadde tenkt meg at Heuvel hadde passet inn her. De satser gjerne mer på Christy - og han trenger en kamparena…

Cody Drameh



The club is in talks with the following players about extending their contracts:

Liam Cooper

Jamie Shackleton

Syns det er trist mht Morten Spencer men overraskende er det ikke.
Rart om Cody Drameh er villig til ny kontrakt nå men jeg mener jo at han har vist nok kvalitet i Championship når han har fått spille over tid. Men tror Cody han vil bli satset på nå?
Mht Cooper ser eg nytten av å ha ham i troppen, vi har ikke sååmange ‘stemmer’ i garderoben. Og Shackleton har klubbens DNA det er det ikke tvil om…



Vi trenger også nr 18 og 19 i troppen, liksom..

"Alle" lag har tilsvarende kvaliteter i sine akademi. Veien til førstelaget er dog veldig lang. Gelhardt og Greenwood er gode eksempler på dette.

Ikke enig i din første setning, vi er nok over snittet der (men ikke alene i klassen). Men ja du verden, å slå gjennom er en helt annen verden. G & G er greie eksempler der. De to sto ut minst like mye som Summerville en gang, men har ikke tatt steget på samme måte - yet (tror tiden er ute for Joffy, mens Greenwood kan nok ta en Alex Mowatt og være en late bloomer)

17
Klubben hadde vel ikke noen stolt historie mht trofeer i den gule drakt, så man visket ikke ut en viktig historie (selv om farge også er historie).


Det ble smått med trofèer i klubbens første 40 år (35 sesonger - krigen stoppet ligaspill 39-46). Men klubben tilbrakte 18 av disse 35 sesongene i toppdivisjonen, seks ganger havnet de på øvre halvdel. Femteplass som det beste, åttende to ganger og niendeplass to ganger. Ellevte èn gang. Bra respektabelt det.

I mellomkrigstiden rykket vi ned to ganger men kom opp igjen på første forsøk.
Såå var vi rimelig medtatt etter 2.verdenskrig (negativ poengrekord i toppdivisjonen (18 poeng på 42 kamper) og brukte ni sesonger på å komme oss opp igjen.

Og hva er suksess, tror nok Manchester U syntes de har hatt mange nitriste sesonger nå inntil de endelig vant et trofè igjen i år. Luton derimot er nok bra fornøyd med siste to sesonger, opprykk i fjor og tilværelse som PL-lag denne seongen....

Jeg ser for meg motviljen på dette forumet på tidlig sekstitall da den nye manageren insisterte på  å bytte ut klubbens identitet, de blågule draktene, med dette nymotens hvite - bare fordi favorittklubben hans  Real Madrid spilte i hvitt.  :o

Leeds United Supporters Trust har i brevs form vært tydelige på hvor man har fansen mht Red Bull og hva som evt kan skje på sikt.

De er gledelig tydelige. :)

Leeds United Supporters Trust have today issued a strongly-worded statement following the news that Red Bull have bought a minority stake in the club. It emerged yesterday that the global energy drink brand have agreed a "multi-year agreement" with the Championship club.

United say the Red Bull partnership, which includes a front-of-shirt sponsorship deal, will "bring in new commercial revenues as well as additional capital investment". In an interview with The Athletic, Paraag Marathe, the head of the 49ers Enterprises ownership group, stressed the club's name and logo will remain unchanged following Red Bull's arrival.

A Trust statement said: “Leeds United have announced that Red Bull has taken a minority ownership stake in the club, as well as becoming our front-of-shirt sponsor. There was a mixed response from the fan base with some welcoming the financial investment, which of course is becoming more important to delivering on-field success, while others expressed their concerns strongly on what Red Bull’s future intentions could be, given their history with other sports clubs.


"We would be naïve as fans to assume there isn’t a larger, long-term plan for Red Bull’s initial foot in the door at Leeds United. The global energy drink brand owns RB Leipzig in Germany's Bundesliga, Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg, MLS side New York Red Bulls, as well as Red Bull Bragantino and RB Brasil in Brazil. In the past, they have made significant changes to club names, badges and kits, placing their brand front and centre, overshadowing and in some cases erasing the history of the clubs they have purchased. This has been met with large protests from fans, and league-wide protests from fans of other clubs.

"To be clear from the outset, any fundamental changes to Leeds United club's identity and heritage will receive maximum resistance from our fans, and we will be working closely with football authorities over the coming years in preparation for any such move by Red Bull.


“While the club have been open and proactive in stating that no one from Red Bull will sit on the board and there will be no change to the name or logo, this is only a promise while the 49ers maintain complete control of the club. Nobody can predict what will happen after the 49ers’ custodianship, so we are taking the opportunity at an early stage to let Red Bull, or any other potential custodians of our club, know that we will not allow any of these fundamental heritage or identity changes to happen to our club.”




"One of the many reasons we are backing the introduction of an independent football regulator is their ability to install protections around football club identity and heritage," the statement continued. "Although on hold until after the general election, the government white paper which was published after a fan-led review in 2022 proposes that clubs in the Premier League and English Football League will be held to account on specific heritage elements.

"Among these recommendations are a ‘duty to not relocate without approval’ and a ‘duty not to change crest, home shirt colours or name without approval’. That approval will not come without consultation with supporters, a move which the government says will ‘put fans back at the heart of how football is run.’ Leeds United Supporters’ Trust is proud to have been a part of this consultation process with the government and wholeheartedly support the recommendations. It’s important that we (and fans of other football clubs) have these types of protections in place sooner rather than later. We continue to work closely with the FSA on this to ensure its effective and meaningful implementation."


As well as the statement, the Trust have published a question and answer exchange between themselves and the club surrounding concerns raised by fans, including the lack of option for Red Bull to increase their stake. You can read this here.

Slik ting har blitt presentert så langt (og hva kommentarene har vært fra såkalte eksperter) så har eg ingen problemer med denne investeringen/draktsponsorshipet. Så er det klart, bildet blir klarere etter hvert osv, men så langt so good.

YEP har fått 'football finance expert, Kieran Maguire i tale....

Leeds United Red Bull Investment: Whites reassurance, Man United example and 'smarter' club view

By Lee Sobot Published 31st May 2024, 11:43 BST

Global energy drinks giant Red Bull have bought a minority share in Leeds and will feature as the club’s front of shirt sponsor.
Football finance expert Kieran Maguire has issued a reassuring Leeds United and Red Bull verdict, explaining how the new set-up can also create a “smarter” Whites.

Leeds announced on Thursday morning that they had sealed a ‘multi-year agreement with Red Bull for a deal which would bring in new commercial revenues as well as additional capital investment for a minority ownership stake.’

The news, though, was met with caution by some sections of the Whites fan base who fear the club losing elements of its identity amid worries that the team would become ‘Red Bull Leeds’.

United, though, were quick to point out in Thursday morning’s release that the name and logo of Leeds United Football Club would remain unchanged, a point reiterated by chairman Paraag Marathe in an interview with The Athletic.
 
Football finance expert Maguire also said he had no such concerns, insisting there was “no way” that would happen, and explaining how Leeds might end up with an arrangement that even Manchester United don’t have.

"I think there's far more positives than negatives,” Maguire told the YEP. "There's no way that it can become RB Leeds in the same way that we have seen at Salzburg and Leipzig and so on.

"Red Bull are part of a multi-club ownership model. I would imagine that the initial investment is going to be quite low if there is a percentage issue so that will work in Leeds' favour because if they return to the Premier League and then they qualify for Europe, there won't be the same problems that are currently facing Jim Radcliffe at Manchester United and Nice. 

“He has now got two clubs in the same competition and if you look at the small print of UEFA's handbook, that could cause one or two problems there. I think that the positives far outweigh any negatives."

Pressed on how Red Bull’s multi-club ownership could maybe impact Leeds, Maguire reasoned: "I think the operational things are completely independent. But there are benefits from having a multi club ownership model because you have greater consistency and continuity so you can have sometimes what we refer to as a knowledge exchange.

"If coaches at the other RB clubs are using this system which seems to be working then the chances are they will be having meetings and Zoom conversations and mini conferences with people at Elland Road to say this is what we have found works, this is what doesn't work. The more that you talk to people who are smart, the smarter you become as a result."

Speaking to The Athletic, Marathe said: “This club is and will forever be Leeds United Football Club. It’s not going to be the Leeds Red Bulls. They appreciate that. They respect that. They know the legacy of this club, so it’s not something they wanted either. But for me, that was table stakes (a minimum requirement for a business arrangement). That’s not going to happen.”

Mange gode spørsmål fra Hay - og Marathe svarer de riktige tingene. Man vil jo lure på om det er løgn og halvsannheter, men hittil har han ikke blitt tatt i sånt...

Jeg tar nå med dette i alle fall:

So, for example, this club is and will forever be Leeds United Football Club. It’s not going to be the Leeds Red Bulls. To be fair, they understand that. They appreciate that. They respect that. They know the legacy of this club, so it’s not something they wanted either. But for me, that was table stakes (a minimum requirement for a business arrangement). That’s not going to happen.

https://www.nytimes.com/athletic/football/team/leeds-united/

Hay: What are we actually talking about in terms of stake size? And how much is this worth to the club in terms of shirt sponsorship? What are the figures?

What influence will Red Bull have in the running of the club, then? And will it be represented on the Leeds board?

Hay: Will you interlink with their other clubs? One of the big issues has been the trade of players between Salzburg and Leipzig, which hasn’t gone down well with Salzburg’s fans. Will there be interaction, or will they be kept as separate entities?

Hay: You’ll be aware of the criticism of Red Bull, and some of its history in football. Did that potentially dissuade you from partnering with the company? Did it come up in discussion?

Hay: Do those same red lines apply to shirt colour, stadium naming rights, and so on — the things Red Bull has changed elsewhere?

Hay: Does Red Bull understand that, though — that it’s all non-negotiable from your perspective?

Hay: Your own takeover started with minority investment and proceeded towards a full buy-out. How can you reassure people who wonder whether that’s ultimately where this is going to lead — Red Bull starting at minority level but taking a majority stake?

Hay: What do you anticipate to be the fans’ reaction to this? From a financial point of view, they’ll understand the level of sponsorship. But the identity of the investors themselves could be a problem.

Hay: A last question that people would probably appreciate having answered. There are lots of parties and individuals involved in the 49ers Enterprises group. Who now has tangible control over the policies and direction of the club? Who actually has a say in where the club are going?

There is no way they will change the brand, identity or anything of @LUFC. So for once Leeds fans, stop being dramatic & enjoy a decent investment #LUFC

Eirik Aase blir ofte referert til. Fordi han har kunnskap om Championship, og fordi han (Blackburn-supporter) er nøytral i de aller fleste sammenhenger.

Denne serverte han etter playoff-finalen:
Vil tro at det er vanskelig for Leeds United-fansen å være optimistiske etter dagens nederlag. Likevel vil jeg prøve med noen trøstende ord. Jeg tror neste sesong blir fantastisk for Leeds. Jeg blir overrasket dersom de ikke er favoritt før sesongstart. Best av alt? Ingen VAR.

Drameh, Ayling, Poveda, Cooper, Koch, Byram, Shackleton contracts expire. Would you extend any?

Harrison, Greenwood, Gyabi, Perkins, Wober, Aaronson, Kristensen, Roca to return to Leeds. Who would you keep?

Ikke godt å si hvor dette bør postes, uansett er det like ille...

Leicester & one of Leeds/Southampton being promoted back to the Premier League will save £103m in parachute payments to 2 of those clubs.

That £103m will be split between PL Clubs rather than the EFL, after a vote by the PL clubs.

[Kieran Maguire]

£1m for a L2 club would be massive... this really needs to change for the good of English football.

Pt frykter jeg det nok en gang ender med tap, da Soton har slått oss begge kampene i år og har en mer rutinert ellever.

Both League 2 and League 1
play off finals have been won by teams that failed to beat their opponents during the regular season… 🤔
