Leeds United's Émigrés Put Current Crop Into Context

Much has been said about how Leeds have cut their own throat in recent years by selling their best players, but when you look at how the "best" have performed since shipping out of Elland Road, it's no wonder the "rest" have struggled.

Where are Norwich, who use the once great Leeds as a feeder club, in the Premiership table? Seventh from bottom and just four points above the bottom three. Snodgrass has looked half decent but nothing more and Becchio is getting splinters in his arse from sitting on the bench.

Delph cost Villa two crucial points with an own goal against Fulham and has an appalling disciplinary record. He was supposed to be a star; but he's at very best ordinary, and Villa, of course are only just above the bottom three.

Have I forgotten anybody? Beckford? He's on loan at Huddersfield and isn't pulling up any trees.

You could bring home the lot of them and Leeds would still be ordinary.

  6. Totally agree,they are no big deal.As a leeds fan I wasn´t too upset when they left, apart from Snake in the grass, but who wants a player that doesn´t want to play for you.The grass isn´t always greener on the other side.Hope we play them in the Championship next year.

  7. What a fucking mug you are ... Oh, btw, you might want to check what big words mean before you write them as none of the players you mention left the country due to political, economic or religious reasons which is what the French word "Émigrés" means ... Douchebag!!

  8. No defenders on your list and that's why Leeds are ordinary. 5s, 6s and a 7 conceded at ER tells the tale. If the defence is a sieve it doesn't matter who's in midfield or up front - or if the manager is changed. That's what cost them - two years running - and will again if not rectified.

  10. Did you just... draw 1-1 against Southampton? Did we beat them 3-0? Amazing what a bunch of 'ordinary' players can do. Name me one player spammers have got who is better than ordinary? And don't even say Carroll hahahaha what a joke!

  11. So with all this in mind perhaps you should apologise for accusing Leeds of selling the family Jewels, as you have done many times and now praise them for some astute sales.

  14. our best players were great for us but crap for other teams. with the exception of beckford who went for free, i'd say it was good business selling them lol

  15. It's actually unreal how much time and effort you put into knowing things about Leeds. It really is. It's becoming an obsession I think. Ask yourself why. Do you like the reaction from fans? Or are you just lonely? I think it's time to take your meds

  16. I wonder how the England Internationals Milner and Lennon are doing?

  17. Lol big Sam the gerbil man......your team is shit your manager is shit.....fucking hell even your millwall rivals are shit. mediocrity is all you will ever know. Your neighbors chelsea hate us more than your insignificant club and although we are in the championship we are still the team everybody wants to turn over. your club are just another 3 points for the other teams. our history and rivalries are solid...yours are just some vain dream about winning the world cup and going 'goin dahn the den and blowing bubbles at dem millwall cants'. When your tin pot club goes under cos they can't pay for the stadium they won't fill ill be laughing my bollox off hommer fan.....i won't write a response to your drivel cos it will only inspire you to spam more mockney wanker shit so id rather post about your doomed club that you've probably never watched......beee lackey geezah

  18. Who appointed you an historian of Leeds United or its ex players? Who the do you think you really are? You are a nobody with a blog that is designed to incite other clubs fans, with headings and shit posts linked to said clubs! Move on WANKER, you have out lived you welcome!!! MOT MOT MOT

  19. I do see your point Hammersfan, but its how those players gel as a team that really matters. If all those players had stayed at Leeds we would not be in the state we're in. Hopefully now we have Brian McD at the helm that's all going to change and other clubs will have to go on their hands and knees to get our best players.

  20. What is that!? Presumably the result of too much Romanian wine and lost Leu at the casino.

    The point is my friend if we had retained the midfield quartet of Snodgrass, Johnson, Howson & Gradel, kept Beckford/Becchio and maybe added a decent centre half we would now be in the premiership. If this is still 'ordinary' then I couldn't give a toss quite frankly. In fact it's completely irrelevant!

    As for Delph point taken. However, dont you think it would have been nice of Bates to maybe use at least a fraction of the £6m transfer fee on the team rather than line his own pockets?

    Seriously mate not one of your best but worth a chuckle I suppose.

  21. That goes to prove cockney boy,that its all down hill,when they leave the mighty whites.

  22. Contrary to a lot of your previous comments it would appear that Leeds are capable of doing a bit of shrewd business from time to time even if the income was thrown away by Bates on his pet projects!

  24. Really depends how far your looking back. I think I understand that yes many haven't gone on to be the world-beaters they thought they would be.

    Players like Gradel, Snodgrass, Beckford, Becchio, Howson, Delph and Johnson showed their signs of brilliance in league 1, so they have come a long way in their careers.

    For me its quite surprising to see how far some of these players have developed especially when I remember Bradley Johnson struggling in league 1.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Delph hasn't developed as well as expected due to a near career ending injury that cost several months of rehabilitation. The players that left were very good championship players, so no wonder some struggle in the premiership.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Lampard,defoe,ferdinand,ferdinand,terry. Etc. The difference is that losing top players at a pisspot club like w,ham is expected. That's the only way to survive due to an aversion to european football. Haven't you got anything to say on your amateur blog about the disgraceful scenes at wembley yesterday or are you too cowardly ,what with them being just over the river?

  29. check out his report on the saints game yesterday against westhamutdonceproudclub...he pretends to be at the game....he never once gives the impression he is sat on a sofa watching it on t.v...for someone that keeps the world and his wife informed of his whereabouts why not mention the fact that he is not actually at the game.

  30. 23;935 for a local derby...yes could have been better....but at least the 23.935 were actually at the game not sat in their armchair pretending to be at the game.

  31. 12.18 and 12.21,spot on and have you noticed that he actually rates the players too? Also count the number of comments from his fellow west ham fans. It's no wonder he gets up before the larks to blog about Leeds. His west ham blog is not so much a "cottage industry" more of an "under the bed next to the bedpan in a cottage industry". That would also explain why they're piss poor too.
