20 years on from the Ridsdale era but wonder if anyone has softened on him. Krasner, McKenzie then Bates, Cellino, GFH and Haigh and then much happier time thanks to Radz and him buying back ER. But 20 years is a long long time of crap thanks to the mismanagement back then If O’Leary had managed to finish 3rd that fateful season the club may well have been saved and not had to go through the years of hurt. The Coca Cola stadium build would have got under way, so a free stadium just off the M1 at Temple Newsam would mean Ridsdale selling ER and making a fortune for the club which would have staved off the wolf from the door and obviously Champions League cash flowing in too. Firpo seems to have stopped all talk of us needing a LB Do we offer Ayling another year? Do we keep Cresswell, Hjelde and Bate or loan them out/sell? Fulham and Brentford are 9th and 8th respectively and my view is that these clubs are there because of their coach’s. I believe we are good enough to be in that region of the table but for a wasted year of having the wrong coach. We played Fulham off the park in the FA Cup and would have been 0-1 up at their place as Georginio scored a good goal. They won due to a couple of worldies. So hoping that Javi Gracia is sorting out a couple of issues over this couple of weeks and then able to show another improvement. Yeah I know nobody is too good to go down but I’m betting this squad is close to it and only wish we had sorted out the coaching issue whilst the World Cup break was on. Tuchel will be taking over at FC Bayern shortly as the club are on the verge of sacking Julian Nagelsman, keep your eyes peeled for where JN ends up. I write this at 8am Friday and I hear Tuchel has accepted the gig and Nagelsman has already been sacked. One to watch as he may end up at Spurs even though fans want Pochetino. Arsenal have joined Leeds, AC Milan and Sevilla in the race for Barcelona's Spain Under-19 winger Ilias Akhomach, 18. I heard this deal had already been agreed and signed? I looked at some clips of this kid and he looks phenomenal but plenty of kids do. He is a ball magnate and his teammates seek him out constantly, he is always double teamed by opposition but he usually leaves them for dead or has his legs kicked from underneath him. One to watch this kid. Speaking of so called wonder kids, what happened to Amari Miller. Some will remember we bought this kid from Birmingham City at the same time we bought Lewis Bate from Chelsea. Miller is Jude Bellingham’s best mate and they went through the BCFC Academy together. We all know what happed to Jude but Miller who is the same age as Jude has struggled at Leeds. There is a story that he has been ripping it up in training and Gracia is now taking an interest in him. He had a few games for the 23s last season where he got goals and assists and stood out. But the 23s were blighted last season due to first team injuries and they were relegated. If Miller fulfils his potential then who knows because at this stage Miller seems to have been the only waste of money Orta has made on kids over the last 3 seasons. However we all know kids develop at different speeds so hoping young Amari has got his head around what he needs to do now.
