Da var ny manager i boks og vi har også fått en ny sportsdirektør. Nå mangler bare resten av støtteapparatet og 4-6 nye spillere. Jeg er spent på hvilken formasjon Monk blir å velge, men hvis han velger en 4-2-3-1 formasjon, mener jeg vi trenger 4 kvalitetsspillere inn i førsteelleveren:

Silvestri - Berardi, Ny spiller, Cooper/Bamba/Bellusci, Taylor - Ny spiller, Cook/Diagouraga - Dallas, Ny spiller, Ny spiller - Wood

Vi trenger kreativitet og fart på topp. Jeg vil ha en ving som er lynrask og som kan true bakrommet. Vi trenger en ny nr. 10 som har en silkefot men som samtidig også har en del mål i seg (vi skulle fått tilslag på Forestieri i fjor sommer!). I tillegg må vi ha en ny midtbanesjef og dirigent samt en kvalitetsstopper. Jeg ønsker også et par tre nye squad-players som er på høyde med de vi allerede har i førsteelleveren. En utfordrer til Dallas og en annen type spiss .Gjerne en kjapp fyr og/eller en diger target man som man kan sette inn for å endre kampbildet (alla Matt Smith).

Vi ryktes allerede til en 19-årig italiensk kant-spiller med en prislapp på vel 3 millioner pund. Aner ikke kvaliteten, men det er nå kjekt å bli ryktet med spillere av en viss verdi i stedet for freebies som vi ble vant til under Bates og GFH.

Jeg som ALLE andre Leedsfans er selvfølgelig veldig utålmodig og vil ha eventuelle nye spillere inn så fort som mulig. Men nå har pre season akkurat startet for de fleste klubber som har en oppstart i august. Dette betyr at flere klubber venter med å selge før de har fått inn noen erstatter og ser hvem de kan unnvære. Det er og mange klubber (som Leeds ) som har fått nye trenere og de vil nok og kartlegge hva de har i stallen før de bestemmer seg om hvem som kan selges. Everton, Southampton, Chelsea, Man U, Man C har jo store staller som det skal ryddes i framover og det kan være muligheter for å hente noen unggutter i alle fall. Det skal nok også handles mye mer av Sunderland, Swansea, Bournemouth, Watford, WBA og Palace som var nære nedrykk i fjor og helt sikkert vil forsterke for å unngå det samme i år. 
Men vi har noe tunge konkurrenter i vår egen divisjon når det gjelder å få tak i disse overflødige spillerne.  Selv om noen av de har brukt mye penger og misslykkes de siste sesongene så har vi jo disse fallskjermklubbene i tillegg... men de og har et vannvittig lønnsbudsjett de skal betale og med mye mindre inntekter er det ikke gitt at det blir brukt så mye av feks Norwich.
Newcastle, Villa, Wednesday og Brighton kommer muligens til å bruke en del, men det er store økonomiske utfordringer i de fleste andre.
Det store spørsmålet er om VI har noe å bruke. Har vi en 6-8 mill£ å bruke pluss et lønnsbudsjett deretter, er det håp om et play off plass... hvis ikke så trur jeg dette blir en ca 8-12 plass sesong. Jeg er helt sikker på at Monk er en mye bedre trener enn Evans og bare med samme stall vil han gjøre det bedre.

Under en måned til seriestart.

Snart må vi begynne å tenke på hvem som er de store favorittene kommende sesong.

For min del skiller Aston Villa og Newcastle seg klart ut. De  er store klubber, begge har en  CL-vinnende manager (di Matto og  Benitez) og de har  allerede kjøpt flere gode spillere. I tillegg har de en god stall  fra før. Begge rykker opp,  enten direkte eller via play off.

Ellers ser jeg for meg  flere av de samme lagene i toppen som ifjor: Sheff W, Derby, Brighton. I tillegg har vi Norwich som rykket ned, som kan dette med opprykk.

Min outsider er Nottingham Forest som kan blande seg inn. Leeds skal få mer enn nok med å klare en 6. plass. Med noe mer skyts fremover og stabilt forsvarsspill (unngå tabber) så er det mulig, mener jeg. Men vi rykker ikke opp selv om vi når play off. Minst ett lag i tillegg til de to store vil være  bedre enn Leeds. Leeds blir nr 6 og stopper der.

Det er fem  lag fra Yorkshire  i ch.ship denne sesongen, så det blir åtte vanskelige  lokaloppgjør for Leeds' del.

Har det ikke vist seg at det bare er omtrent en av de som rykket ned som går rett opp igjen? Selvsagt ingen regler for det men... Jeg tror også Newcastle blir uhyggelig sterke, men Aston Villa var så svake i fjor at jeg blir ikke overrasket om de sliter på nedre halvdel. Norwich er mer vant med situasjonen og vil sikkert bli gode.

Murphy var jo kaptein så vidt jeg vet forrige match, ikke sikkert han er tiltenkt den rollen, men tror nok Monk, ser på han som en viktig spiller, når han ga han muligheten. Men vi får håpe at vi har en ny mann på plass før første seriekamp. Håper det skjer noe denne uken.

Phil Hay med en foreløpig konklusjon på sommerens overganger: "Tja, bedre enn 13.plass men ikke 6.plass as it stands"


Leeds United: Monk’s recruiting rationale has merit


By   Phil Hay

Published:  00:00  Updated:  07:31 Thursday 21 July 2016 

Huddersfield Town might have won the race to complete their summer signings, but West Yorkshire rivals Leeds United have been no slouches so far in that department. Phil Hay reports.

The most active Championship club this summer have been Huddersfield Town by some distance.

A 12th signing last week, that of young Chelsea striker Kasey Palmer, allowed head coach David Wagner to openly declare that “our business is done.”

Wagner is alone in that respect and among 23 other managers, Leeds United’s included, the hunt for players goes on.

Leeds have more deals completed than most, as many as any other side in the league except Preston North End, but the Championship relies on quality over quantity, except for clubs who have the money to enjoy both.

Garry Monk is mindful of both, which is why Leeds’ approach for Fleetwood Town defender Conor McLaughlin fizzled out on Tuesday.

United contacted Fleetwood about McLaughlin’s availability over the weekend and were told that a bid of around £300,000 would go close to the right-back’s valuation but Monk considered the opportunity and ruled against it.

His rationale was simple: that rather than bringing in basic cover, Leeds should be signing a player at least as good as Gaetano Berardi.




Leeds were linked yesterday with free agent Reece Wabara, the former Manchester City trainee who won the League One title with Wigan Athletic last season before leaving the DW Stadium at the end of his contract, and it remains to be seen if he is more in line with Monk’s requirements.

It was not necessarily a cliche when United’s head coach said last week: “When we sign players, we have to be signing them because we think they’re better.

“We have to be signing them because they’re an improvement.

“I’m very clear about that.”




A large portion of Leeds’ season ticket income, potentially 50 per cent of it, has been risked on the club’s improving from 13th place to sixth in the Championship this season.

The question with the first league game at Queens Park Rangers coming round quickly is whether Monk’s strongest line-up as it stands is better or more adequately suited to the competition than Steve Evans’ was in May.

Minus the injured Liam Bridcutt and Berardi – currently a concern again, albeit with a different problem – the line-up chosen by Evans for United’s last Championship fixture was essentially full strength.

Evans went out at Preston that day with a warning that around six signings would be the minimum needed to bridge the gap from mid-table to the play-offs.

The addition of Rob Green and the return from injury of Ross Turnbull, who played 90 minutes in Ireland last week without any problem with the ankle he broke in October, has given Monk a markedly different choice of goalkeepers.




Marco Silvestri was Evans’ pick at Deepdale, with Bailey Peacock-Farrell in reserve, but Silvestri is out of the picture and has not even featured in the club’s recent Under-21 friendlies.

Peacock-Farrell took part in a 2-0 win at Tadcaster Albion on Tuesday night.

Green is a former England international, 11 years older than Silvestri, but the key difference highlighted by Monk was the 36-year-old’s experience of English football and the fact that he has grown up in its culture.

Silvestri drew acclaim for his short-stopping but after two seasons at Elland Road United came to the conclusion that his continental game was not developing quickly enough.

A potential backline of Berardi, Kyle Bartley, Liam Cooper and Charlie Taylor is not far removed from the defence of Lewie Coyle, Sol Bamba, Cooper and Taylor which Evans fielded against Preston.

But the transfer of Bartley in and Giuseppe Bellusci out was an essential move by the Elland Road club.

Bartley is a tall, imposing centre-back whose vocal performances in Ireland might stand him out as a possible captain in Monk’s eyes, despite the fact he joined Leeds on loan.

He also comes without the baggage or reputation of Bellusci who said last month that a temporary move to Empoli was in his best interests after a fractious spell in England.

“It took me 48 hours,” said Bellusci when asked how long he had given himself to weigh up the move.

Without him, Leeds still want another central defender.

The centre of midfield is where the club’s resources have taken the biggest hit since the end of last season.

Tom Adeyemi had a few moments of note but his return to Cardiff City in May was the end of an underwhelming loan.

Bridcutt, in contrast, was a mainstay in Evans’ team and it was no coincidence that Leeds dealt quickly with the threat of relegation after his loan from Sunderland was finalised.

Leeds’ attempt to sign Bridcutt permanently is at an impasse, however, and unlikely to progress while Leeds and Sunderland remain at odds over the finances involved.

But while Bridcutt’s return was never certain, there was no apparent sign of Lewis Cook leaving until Leeds took a £10m offer from Bournemouth in the second week of pre-season.

Monk rated Cook so highly that he asked the teenager to forego a trip to the European Under-19 Championship with England to complete a full pre-season at Leeds.

“That was down to me and only me,” Monk said. “I felt it would be best for me, the team and for him to have him here.

“Then the rumours about interest him became more real and the club decided that in the circumstances the deal was one they should take.

“As I’ve said before, that’s how it goes at almost every club.

“Lewis was great, never a problem, and in the short time I worked with him I got to know him personally too.

“I liked him a lot and of course I thought a lot of his talent.”

Monk signed Matt Grimes, an England Under-21 international, from Swansea City prior to Cook’s exit, but there is a gap in his resources for a marquee midfielder.

Up front, though, he has a wider choice than Evans; a wider choice than the attacking options of Wood, Stuart Dallas, Mirco Antenucci, Jordan Botaka and Souleymane Doukara which Evans took to Deepdale.

Antenucci left Leeds in May but the club have signed Kemar Roofe, Marcus Antonsson and Hadi Sacko since his exit.

United would take NEC Nijmegen’s Anthony Limbombe if the asking price and Limbombe’s on-going dispute with NEC were to ease in the next few weeks.

It would seem, then, that Leeds’ current head coach will have stronger hand than his predecessor – but not deep enough yet to turn 13th place into sixth or water into wine.

Leeds United’s line-up on the last day of the 2015-16 season: Silvestri, Coyle, Bamba, Cooper, Taylor, Murphy, Mowatt, Cook, Diagouraga, Dallas, Wood. Subs: Wootton, Vieira, Phillips, Botaka, Antenucci, Doukara, Peacock-Farrell.

Garry Monk’s possible Leeds United line-up (asthe current squad stands): Green, Berardi, Bartley, Cooper, Taylor, Dallas, Grimes, Diagouraga, Roofe, Wood, Antonsson. Subs: Turnbull, Bamba, Sacko, Mowatt, Murphy, Botaka, Vieira.

Grei oppdatering fra Hay.

Denne stallen kan godt komme blandt topp 6.
Men det kommer an på om Monk klarer å organisere laget på en skikkelig måte og få inn en god lagmoral. Kommer langt med det.

Leeds United Season Preview: the circus upstairs
Thursday, 21 July 2016 Gabriel

Leeds United is a grand football club that has been chronically mismanaged over the years. From Peter Ridsdale to Ken Bates and now Massimo Cellino, they have never had the stability at boardroom level to fulfil potential. The appointment of Garry Monk, a reasonably successful manager in the Premier League with Swansea City, shows they do retain a certain allure. The question is whether he can quieten the circus upstairs – supporter Russ Vernon shares his views.

Leeds finished 13th last season, having been 18th when Steve Evans took over. Is he the club’s first manager in a while that won’t necessarily be remembered as a failure?

I don’t think that will be necessarily remembered as a failure I think it will be remembered as a positive.

Garry Monk had a successful 2014/15 season in charge of Swansea, before a disappointing couple of months last season. Are you pleased that he was happy to take the Leeds job?

Yes after a number of managers/coaches rejected us I was beginning to wonder that no one would take the job, but Monk knows this division and played in it and played/managed in the EPL, it’s a great appointment.

Leeds seemed to play a lot of long balls under Steve Evans while Mirco Antenucci claimed there was a lack of tactical work. Are those assertions fair and do you expect change under Monk?

I think it will change under Monk, he likes to play 4-4-2 passing football so it will probably change.

Pep Clotet has 15 years of coaching experience at just 39 and has coached with Monk at Swansea for two years. Are you pleased he has joined as an assistant manager?

I’m pleased with Pep coming in. He and Monk know each other so it can only be a positive.

Charlie Taylor has attracted interest this summer. Does this concern you, given the shortage of cover at left-back?

Having seen Tyler Denton (a regular for the U21s) last season I think he could be a good replacement, but I do feel Taylor will stay at Elland Road.

An impressive eight academy graduates featured last season. Which of those stood out for you? Right-back Lewie Coyle looks a talent…

For me a couple impressed me from our academy last year, Coyle who you mentioned is a really talented RB, BPF (Bailey Peacock-Farrell) is a good keeper and although he played one game Ronaldo Vieira looks a good prospect.

The performances of Sol Bamba and Giuseppe Belluschi have been questioned. Was it important to bring in another centre-back in Kyle Bartley?

Yes we needed another CB in and was pleased with Bartley coming in and now Bellusci has left for Empoli, we need another and it looks like ex Watford Joel Ekstrand will be coming in next.

Kalvin Phillips has signed a three-year contract this summer. Does this suggest he is part of Monk’s plans?

I believe we could see a bit more of Phillips this season he has really impressed me with the performances for the U21s.

Leeds have a lot of central midfielders but few wide men. Is this a problem? Could Evans’ tendency to field players out of position be explained by the imbalanced nature of the squad?

Yes I think it could, we all know we should use the players in their correct positions to get the best out of them that’s why I feel Lewis Cook (who has now joined Bournemouth) and Alex Mowatt didn’t play as well as they could have last season.

You scored just 50 goals last season, perhaps lacking pace in forward areas. To what extent will the signings of Kemar Roofe, Marcus Antonsson and loanee Hadi Sacko solve that problem?

I think they could solve the problem and I believe if Wood keeps fit he could add more goals and help the team but Roofe, Antonsson and Sacko could also help us add more goals as they are all really talented players.

What are your thoughts ahead of the Championship season as a whole? Any potential dark horses for you?

I think Newcastle and Villa will be up there and I believe with the transfer business Rotherham are doing they could be up there too. My top 6 prediction:- 1 Newcastle, 2 Villa, 3 Sheff.Wed, 4 Norwich, 5 Cardiff, 6 Brighton. Rotherham to miss out on the top 6 on GD.

Where will you finish? I have to remind you that you predicted 3rd last summer…

I believe if we keep Monk for the whole season we could have a real go and I personally will have to say we along with Rotherham will miss out of the top 6 on GD. I’ll go 7th for Leeds.

The Football Lab’s Verdict

Any Leeds United boss would struggle under Cellino, so the appointment of a good manager in Monk is rendered insignificant. A lack of experience on the field and stability off it makes for another fruitless campaign. 17th

Defence is a shambles 

the midfield looks weak 

attack is untested

the bench fully bleak 

the sale of our youngsters 

our starlets, our hope 

invested in law suits 

transfer policy, a joke

yet still we stand by them 

through thick and through thin 

a continuing circus 

with no chance of a win 

regardless of money

or success, we shall fight 

oh Cellino please leave 

but don't turn out the lights

sinn/waccoe
Tell me - I've got to know
Tell me - Tell me before I go
Does that flame still burn, does that fire still glow
Or has it died out and melted like the snow
Tell me  Tell me

Dylan
