In this piece, Joe Morgan takes a look at Liverpool’s setup at corners and wonders if Leeds could generate dangerous chances from the corner flag in Sunday’s fixture…

In the first three games of this season, Liverpool have faced only 10 corners in total. But in the last game, Chelsea were able to find some joy from the corner and were the first team to score from one against Liverpool this season, courtesy of a Kai Havertz header.

In that game, Liverpool faced only three corners likely due to the fact Chelsea had to change their playstyle after Reece James’…


This article from Ryan Quinn discusses the attributes of Leeds’ record signing, and poses the question of how he fits in with Bielsaball…

More than two years on from the well-documented fiasco, Leeds United finally have their man. Signed from Manchester United for a fee worth £24m — after being made possible by the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford — Daniel James has been admired by Marcelo Bielsa for some time. …


This latest scouting report from Stephen Russell gives us the lowdown on Leeds’ latest signing — Norwegian defender Leo Hjelde.

Traditionally, centre backs are not the most exciting signings. They’re not the players that shift shirts nor are they the players that fans turn up in droves to see. Additionally, it’s very rare that a signing only just turned 18 could be someone that draws attention. However, exciting is exactly the word I would use to describe Leeds United’s latest acquisition, Leo Hjelde.

The Norwegian 18-year-old comes from Celtic who, despite the occasional misdemeanour like Shane Duffy, need to recruit…


In this piece, Josh Hobbs looks at Leeds United’s transfer window so far…

At the time of writing, there are only 12 days remaining in the transfer window.

The Leeds United first-team signings currently consist of Junior Firpo — who joined from Barcelona in a £13m deal — and young Norwegian goalkeeper, Kristoffer Klaesson. These two players came in to replace the departing Ezgjan Alioski and Kiko Casilla. On top of this, Jack Harrison finally signed permanently for the club after three seasons on loan.

There has been talk of further signings with a midfielder a priority. Conor Gallagher was…


In this scouting report, Josh Hobbs tells us all there is to know about Huddersfield midfielder Lewis O’Brien, the latest player on Leeds’ radar. You can watch a full video scouting report on O’Brien over on our Patreon channel.

If it feels like Leeds United’s search for a midfielder has been rumbling on all summer, it’s because it has. In fact, it’s really been two summers.

When Leeds were first promoted to the Premier League, Twitter exploded with the news that Leeds had an interest in Rodrigo De Paul, who has since moved to Atletico Madrid. Whilst Leeds’ interest in…


In this piece, Tom Alderson investigates the numbers behind Leeds United’s set pieces from the 20/21 Premier League season.

Marcelo Bielsa may have turned Leeds’ fortunes around in his three seasons at the club, but one thing that he has never seemingly managed to sort out during his tenure is Leeds’ set pieces.

There were times this season when the team looked extremely vulnerable from set pieces. During December whenever the team conceded a corner or free kick, Sky Sports would present the graphic showing how poor Leeds are from set pieces, and it felt like a goal was coming…


In this scouting report, James Mayley gives us the lowdown on Leeds’ newest signing, Norwegian goalkeeper Kristoffer Klaesson…

For a long time, big things have been expected of now-20-year-old keeper Kristoffer Klaesson in his native Norway. Klaesson has been capped internationally from under 15 to under 21 level and he received his first senior call-up in March of this year, although he was forced to drop out after testing positive for Covid-19.

Domestically, Klaesson made his senior debut in 2018 for his current side Valerenga. He had his first sustained first run of games due to injury to Valerenga’s usual…


In this piece, Elle Barker takes a look at the numbers behind Leeds United’s number one who excelled in the Premier League last season.

(Note: all data in this article is from StatsBomb via fbref.com)

At just 21 years of age, Illan Meslier has already played 76 games of first-team football — 35 of which came last season, his first in the top flight. …


Josh Hobbs takes a look at Junior Firpo, the Barcelona left back who is set to be the first Leeds United signing this summer…

All being well, Leeds United could confirm their first major signing of the summer in the next few days, bringing in 24-year-old Junior Firpo from Barcelona. There are varying reports regarding the deal — which should become clear soon — but the expectation is that it will be a four year deal and the fee will be around €12–15m.

Junior came to Spain — the country he has represented at under-21 level — from the Dominican…


In this piece, Josh Hobbs looks at Dutch youngster Noa Lang who has been linked with Leeds United this window…

Before the end of the season, it seemed like we might have a fairly decent handle on who Leeds’ main transfer targets were. Stade Brest’s Romain Perraud and Romain Faivre had both been mentioned by The Athletic’s Phil Hay. Ryan Kent is a long-term favourite of Marcelo Bielsa. Since then, all those names have been mentioned less and less with Perraud looking likely to move to Southampton and Leeds playing their cards very close to the chest on their dealings.
