By George Overhill 25th Feb, 2023 | 3:47pmSky Sports pundit delighted by Junior Firpo quality vs Southampton as Leeds United misfit looks reborn under Javi GraciaJunior Firpo proved to be a key attacking outlet for Leeds United in the first half vs Southampton including one “lovely” ball in that impressed Michael Bridges. That showed in the way that neither side could take any of the chances that came to them in the first 45-minutes, but Leeds United were certainly on top. Firpo and Gnonto combined so many times that it seems like that is the avenue to find the break through for the Whites. In other Leeds United news, the Whites are positioning themselves to make a major attacking signing for free at the end of the season.

By Sam Stone 8th Jan, 2023 | 3:59pmLeeds United player ratings v Cardiff: Diego Llorente dismal, Willy Gnonto shines18-year-old Sonny Perkins scored his first goal for Leeds United to earn Jesse Marsch’s side a replay against Championship side Cardiff City. Missed a sitter in the second half to get Leeds back into the game. He was completely lost for Cardiff’s second goal. With Leeds United looking to add another striker in January, Gelhardt moving on could be an option. Was particularly impressive in the second half.2 months ago MOT Leeds News
Here, MOT Leeds News rates the Leeds United players out of 10 for their performances at Elland Road. Leeds United certainly need that defensively but in a game like this one might have benefited from more incisiveness going forward. Tyler Adams – 5One of his weaker outings in a Leeds United shirt. Jack Harrison – 6Heavily involved and improved as the game went on but lacking the quality that we all know he has at times. Still always a threat and drew a strong save with the best Leeds United chance midway through the second half.2 months ago MOT Leeds News
By George Overhill 22nd Oct, 2022 | 8:10pmPhil Hay: Victor Orta credibility on shaky ground at Leeds United as Jesse Marsch strugglesVictor Orta’s credibility has taken a major hit at Leeds United because he is closely tied to the decision to appoint Jesse Marsch as Marcelo Bielsa’s replacement. From what we’re told about Marsch, Orta had looked at around 40 coaches in Europe… Marsch was one of the people that Orta focused in on. “And then the recruitment through the summer was done to fit this system and this style of play. But that only heightens the need to get that decision right, because now all the Raphinha and Kalvin Phillips money has been spent on players to suit the man in charge. In other Leeds United news, one Whites player is “lost” in the team and it is therefore “100%” that a surprise package will return to the line up vs Fulham.5 months ago MOT Leeds News
By Craig Scott 26th Oct, 2022 | 8:09pmSean Dyche move to Leeds United on the cards as Sky Sports pundit shares vibe he got from Monday nightWith each passing day, it’s making more and more sense that Sean Dyche would replace Jesse Marsch as manager of Leeds United Football Club. However, Leeds’ Premier League status is under threat with them losing and failing to beat teams who’ll be in and around them in the relegation battle this season. Paul Robinson exclusively told MOT Leeds News this week that someone of Dyche’s ilk would be better suited for Leeds. I think he will get some more time but there is the specter of a certain Sean Dyche hanging over as well. In other Leeds United news, Marsch has been told to enter quiet talks with the PGMOL after Jeff Stelling made an accusation.5 months ago MOT Leeds News
Here is how MOT Leeds News rated the performance of each Leeds player on the night. Luke Ayling – 5/10An average performance from someone who really needed the minutes in his legs going into the second half of the season. Liam Cooper – 5/10The skipper did good work in a busy first half for Leeds where they were under pressure a lot. He struggled in possession and was often forced to go long, but encouraging considering how little he’s played this season. Mateo Joseph – 5/10Didn’t have a lot of time on the pitch but made a really big impact on how Leeds were attacking.3 months ago MOT Leeds News
By George Overhill 28th Jan, 2023 | 7:10pmWeston McKennie set for Leeds United move amid reports of late hijack possibilityWeston McKennie is one hundred per cent due to sign for Leeds United despite reports of clubs looking to mount a late hijack attempt, according to Fabrizio Romano. See more 🚨 Nottingham Forest among clubs considering move to hijack proposed signing of Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie by Leeds. However, Romano has now seemingly confirmed that there is no prospect of late drama here, as he responded to reference to both his and Ornstein’s reports on Twitter, writing: “Leeds 100%”. The next 24-hours will go by at a glacial pace for some Leeds United fans, but Romano seems pretty confident in this one, and given the player has been on board for a few days it surely is just a matter of time.

By George Overhill 18th Feb, 2023 | 4:52pmThe wheels came off the Michael Skubala reign at Leeds United with a worrying 1-0 defeat against fellow strugglers Everton at Goodison Park. Here, MOT Leeds News rates the Leeds United players out of 10 for their performances at Goodison Park. Junior Firpo – 6Often the scapegoat in his time with Leeds United, he didn’t stand out as a weakness on a day where everybody struggled. Patrick Bamford – 7Went closest of all the Leeds United players in the first half with a low shot that went narrowly wide and battled up front as the lone striker but looked isolated.
