    Good Morning. It's Wednesday 17th November, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road


    Leeds to raid Boro for versatile midfielder

    Marcus Tavernier is the latest in a long line of midfielders to be linked with a move to Elland Road. The Versatile midfielder currently applies his trade at the Riverside Stadium under new Manager Chris Wilder who replaced Neil Warnock a fortnight ago.

    Tavernier was born in Leeds, but has been part of the Boro set up since the age of 14. Victor Orta, is a big fan of the player, overseeing his progress from the youth ranks during his time there. In 15 outings this term, He has played in five different positions. He is the younger brother of former Leeds academy player James, the current Rangers Captain. Southampton, Brighton and Burnley are also credited with an interest in the 22yo.

    Raphinha stitched up

    A bloodied Raphinha had to receive 5 stitches in his face after being elbowed by Nicolas Otamendi during Brazil's encounter with Argentina earlier this morning. The incident went unnoticed by both referee and VAR. By all accounts, the Leeds No 10 had a quiet game, & was substituted 20 minutes from time. The game ended 0-0.

    James intramental in Wales draw v Belgium

    Plucky Wales held their own during a 1-1 draw with Belgium last night in Cardiff. Dan James was a constant pain in their side, often getting the better of the visitor's defence. He was also credited for an assist for Wales' equaliser. His looping cross fell to Moore who fired home a low shot from the middle of the area.

    Mark Viduka, imo just what we need, although not as mobile as possibly bielsa would like, new where the back of the net was from in and around the box, we would just need Harrison, James etc to deliver a quality cross & Mark would do the rest.
    Morning all
    :)

    From Raphinha in a Brazilian interview, is this a player looking to leave and has stopped believing in the project?:


    However, speaking to Spanish outlet AS, Raphinha has outlined his big ambitions with Leeds.

    “From my first days at the club, I already saw how special Bielsa was.

    “He is a guy who works a lot, who knows a lot about soccer. He is the typical professional who dedicates 100% of his time to the institution he represents and we are very lucky that he is our coach. Bielsa knows how to get the most out of each one of us. This makes us raise our level.”
    we hope to play in the Champions League soon, this is our goal

    TBF, a player (some gripers excepted) is unlikely to publicly state discontent with their current club. Why that elbow wasn't punished is beyond me - clearly deliberate.

    Premier League chairman Gary Hoffman will step down from his role at the end of January 2022.

    The above headline should cause an outcry in our media but it’ll go very quiet. I say an outcry but not against Hoffman but he has been forced out by Prem League owners and I include Radz in this. Hoffman did what he was legally obliged to do and accept the new owners of Newcastle, yet because these club owners have a serious problem with Saudi Arabia they lose their shyt. Yet these same owners keep quite about murders like Shinawatra, or the Qatar government who have been found guilty of mass murder, slavery, wrongful imprisonment, kidnap…. They even kept quiet when gangsters were money laundering through football clubs and how the porn kings of WHU are allowed in football I will never know. The biggest human rights abusers in the world are China and yet again our media and these same club owners keep quiet about mass murder, slavery and genocide on an industrial scale, why? Why are the Saudi’s the bad guy in a world of football where its full of very bad guys.

    How about doing your jobs and cleaning up football rather than virtue signal

    European football clubs infiltrated by Russian mafia - Europol

    How a convicted criminal can buy a famous English football club.

    FOOTBALL PROBE
    French gangster connected to mafia at centre of probe into alleged dodgy transfers involving Premier League clubs



    A SERBIAN paper has claimed that many of its most successful foreign-based players are being forced to pay protection money to the country's mafia.
    The Serbian mafia has been forced underground following the assassination of Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic in March.

    Only 6 points, plus another 6 suspended, contingent on them sticking to their plan!

    17 teams in the Championship have been relegated from the Prem and have had parachute money. 14 of those teams have gotten into financial trouble and we also know those who cheated the system like Swansea, Derby, Hull, Cardiff QPR, Birmingham add Sheff Wednesday and Villa from different leagues and more and they tried to game the system to get hold of prem riches.

    Just think how tough it is to get out of the Championship with 17 of the teams who have been in the prem, it was only half the clubs when we we were getting out
