    Good Morning. It's Friday 8th May, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road.


    Izzy Brown resentful towards Bielsa

    Izzy Brown opened up to Phil Hay recently over his season long loan at Elland Road. The England U21 International was sent to LS11 during the 18/19 season on the proviso that he was recovering from an anterior cruciate ligament injury, and would not be fit until the second half of the season.

    Unfortunately for the (then) 22yo, he felt angry and bitter about being frozen out by Bielsa!

    “Leeds was the hardest time because after coming back from a year out with the ACL, I was ready to play, I was fit but I wasn’t getting picked,”

    “I was getting angry. It was affecting me on the training pitch. It felt like I was working hard for no reason.

    “There wasn’t much Chelsea could do. You’re on your own then, really. Chelsea don’t pick the team.

    “If the manager (Marcelo Bielsa) isn’t selecting you, it’s on you. It’s not Chelsea’s problem. It’s only you that can get out of the problem.”

    I honestly believe during the second half of the 2018/19 season, Leeds desperately needed fresh legs, and although Brown was declared fit towards the end of January, Bielsa cost Leeds points by not including Brown.

    Leeds handed boost for German International

    According to Portuguese media outlet A Bola, Leeds have been handed a massive boost in their pursuit of Freiberg defender Robin Koch.

    It has been confirmed that the 23yo will not sign a new contract with the Bundesliga outfit and with a year left on his contract, Freiberg will be looking to offload the centre back at a knock down price around 10m, probably half what he is worth.

    Koch is 6ft 3in, right footed and very comfortable on the ball. He can also play as a defensive midfielder.

    We know that Leeds have been scouting Koch since January, but will they be able to beat off competition from West Ham and Spurs for the newly appointed German International?

    Leeds closing in on 16yo wonderkid

    The Yorkshire Evening Post are reporting that Leeds are closing in on wonderkid Charlie Allen.

    The 16yo forward has already made multiple senior outings for current side Linfield who are managed by ex Leeds striker David Healy.

    The Northern Ireland International School boy has been on Leeds Utds wish list for some time, and feel confident they can beat a host of Premier League clubs to his signature.

    Morning all. If Izzy is as good as he thinks he is, maybe he should be in Chelsea first team or whatever club he’s camped with at present. Signing him was a joke on our part. Why do we need any more wonder kids. We’ve signed tons of those

    Morning all. Robin Koch is the type of player we should be looking to sign. If we could get this lad it would be a great signing.

    Morning all. I’m getting itchy for a decision to be made on the season ending now. Declare it the end, award Leeds the Championship trophy, promote us and relegate whoever and the lock down won’t seem so bad.

    Morning.

    I heard that the rumours about Koch came from a list of players Orta had scouted but actually Koch was from the reject list.

    So you could say the koch story is bo**cks.
