We got Vieira don't need delph

We currently have arguably the most skilled player in the championship (Hernandez) and arguably the best DM (Bridcutt) . If we brought in a player of Delphs quality with those two I think we would hands down have the best midfield by a decent way.

Add that to the best CB pairing and that 6-7 point gap to the top two doesn't look far away at all, especially with Gayle and Mitrovic both out injured for Newcastle. As for Vieira, Martyn, the more quality we surround him with now, the better he will become, won't do the lad any harm to work alongside a player of that calibre.

Have to agree with MartynG . we've got young Kalvin and Ronaldo, Delph would be benchwarming :) how nice to say that ;)

Think you are correct Gummie as we look with one eye on promotion we would need to have players with premiership experience and quality certainly to help us stay there and not bounce straight back down and Delph certainly has that injury permitting.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Jan 2017 16:52:42
Hernandez and Bridcutt would improve every team in the league, the fact that we did so well without them is a testament to how well the boys are playing and the job Monk and Clotet are doing. Delph would be a quality signing, but it seems too big a jump from Man City to Championship. PL clubs would be interested if he's available.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jan 2017 17:59:47
You can't keep everyone happy gumming, delph won't want to be on bench as won't bridcut or Vieira so at some point someone's going to say I wanna leave. Now who would you like that to be? Our captain? Or the best young player in the league by a country mile or a great player who spends a lot of time injured on silly wages that would probably split the dressing room because he won't come cheap.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jan 2017 20:26:58
Sorry but there is no room for delph, he wanted to join city knowing he wouldn't play much so for me he can stay there n get paid for doing nothing, we probably do need a back up but no need for 1 on so much money, we have Ronny and Liam and no one is going to push them out of the team any time soon

Agree2 1Disagree

Don't agree with the above comment about Kalvin. Very overrated player who struggles with the pace of the Championship. Delphi would do us no harm in there instead😏

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jan 2017 22:33:05
Not talking a perm transfer Martyn, Pep wants to keep him, just loan him out to get match fit again (similar to Wiltshere this season) , just doesn't want to loan him to a rival in the prem. I think Vieira will be a big player in the future but he will become stunted if he doesn't train with other players of a higher level. We could probably get Delph on a short term and not have to pay a penny, if he gets injured he goes back, no harm no foul. Can also play at AM so gives us cover for Hernandez in that position. Hernandez, Bridcutt, Delph in the league - Philips, O'Kane, Vieira in the cup, looks good to me.

Monk looking at signing 30 year old Celtic left back Emilio Izaguirre. Out of contract in the summer and possible replacement for Taylor.

{Ed007's Note - Celtic would like Izaguirre to sign a contract extension (probably on reduced terms) and be back up to Kieran Tierney but Izaguirre wants to be playing regular first team football which Celtic can't give him. If he is leaving Celtic there will be plenty of interested teams from all over Europe and the MLS.}

Izaguirre is the proverbial headless chicken. He would not add anything to our team- think Aidy White only slower.

{Ed007's Note - He's anything but slow and even at 30 is one of the quickest players in Scotland.}

Looks like Sunderland and West ham are sniffing around Chris Wood. We have put a £15 million price tag on lumpa so it might scare them off. Get the feeling West ham think we're a feeder club for them. Well my shandy drinking friends he's going no where because he knows were going places under monkey boy and his trusty sidekick pep

Don't believe it. We are on the up, daily rags making up transfers to unsettle, 1 the player and 2 the team. Wouldn't surprise me if that Shaun Harvey wants to keep us in the FL as he knows how much money we generate for him and his other fat cats. The FL is nothing without LU.

Is it just me, or do I sense that for the first time in at least 20 years, lots and lots of people in football - mainly ex players and pundits are genuinely wanting us to get promoted back to where we belong. Even talk of Kenny Dalgleish recommending us to AR. Shaun Harvey must be turning in his grave . oh what, isn't he?

Believable3 0Unbelievable

15 Jan 2017 21:49:07
Been out all day and just catching up with the LU gossip and read some of the best news. AR's going to open talks with GM over an extended contract. This will be the most important signing of January and an absolute must.

Derby match proved that we can cope without Pontus (although our defence wasn't really put under serious pressure) but Monk has performed miracles. This would also prove to the players and any thinking about coming to Leeds that this time we are serious about getting back to where we belong.

Whilst he's at it, he may as well get Pep and Beattie to sign on the dotted line.

I know what you mean lucas, it's like things have changed at Leeds but nothings changed in terms of transfers. It feels like we're been left behind again. I can't understand why we won't stump up for winnal as it would hardly break the bank but give us a different option and he knows were the onion bag is.

16 Jan 2017 17:02:44
I found that crazy too Martyn G. We offered upwards of 500k this time last year and then again in the summer and there's talk he went to Wednesday for 200k. But what can ya do, maybe we have other targets. I've not heard a lot of us signing players so maybe it's a case of keeping cards close to our chest. Winnall was a target but maybe our aims have changed or someone else is available.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jan 2017 21:04:03
Winnall to Wednesday, nugent to derby. 15 days in is anyone getting worried that we ain't gunna what we need. Signin pablo is excellent business and hopefully all the other loanees will follow.

But everyone knows we need another proven goal scored just to really help us for hopefully automatic promotion and we need some cover for our back 4. I tweeted in during the derby game to see if recalling bellusci would b an option an noel whelan wasnt keen.

But if we ain't gunna get what we need surely he is still an option. Is anyone else getting to the stage of thinking we ain't gunna add what we need?

Bellusci? seriously? not for me! if monk wanted that kind of cover he would have kept bamba. Trust in monkey man, I'm sure there are things going on in the background. Don't worry.

Liam Lindsey is apparently close to joining as cover. I know nothing of the guy to be honest. Anyone has to be better than Cooper though. Agree that Bellusci had his chance and as decent as he could be on his day, those days towards the end were few and far between. I just think there's probably a lot going on behind the scenes we aren't privy to at the minute. I don't reckon we'll be let down and Monk has openly stated he needs 2 or 3 to sustain a push and I don't think Pontus or Hernandez are included in the list.

Liking the sound bites coming out of ER. Clever move by Cellino to bring AR on board. Think he will bring security and confidence back to the club. Cellino struggled with this due to bad media coverage, poor man management and the fact his past keeps coming back to bite him in the ass.

AR seems to have same vision for Leeds. Premiership, buy back ER, develop it into a bigger stadium, and he is on the ball with new contracts. Think we might see a hotel at side of the ground soon so all the distant fans can have a weekend in the best city in England.

Serious question here. Is it not cheaper and easier to buy new land And build a new purpose built modern stadium ready for the next chapter in our history?

Agree3 2Disagree

15 Jan 2017 00:44:24
Not Really Curahee, and it would be a damned sight more expensive. When Cellino joined I think it got thrown around that it would cost £12m to buy back ER (happy to be corrected on that if someone knows the exact figure) . Brightons Amex stadium (30,000 cap) cost them north of £100m and it cost Man City around £250m (55,000 cap) . If we just replaced with similar to what we have its going to be £175m ish. If we buy back the stadium it would be more cost effective to knock down a stand every off season and rebuild something more modern I would wager.

Agree7 0Disagree

15 Jan 2017 09:23:35
That was the original plan to rebuild ER. The plan was replicate the then new east stand around the ground. Which would leave the capacity around the 65,000 to 70,000 mark!

Agree3 0Disagree

15 Jan 2017 11:52:51
Good post Gummie, think ER was sold for 8 Mil during our financial meltdown, I believe the new owner Teak commercial Ltd based off shore in the British Virgin Islands has a buy back clause for 15 Mil, there is lots of speculation as to who is behind it, a certain Smurf is rumoured to be involved (allegedly) 😀 we would probably be better off following Liverpools example and redeveloping Elland Road, stand by stand. Certainly enough space to build 50-60,000 seater like you say would be more cost effective

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Jan 2017 12:10:03
Thanks, that's fair enough. Didn't realise that stadiums were that expensive to be fair! As soon as I the work needs to start in Ernest though, as they will soon be handing out hard hats at the turnstiles for some of the stands!

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jan 2017 12:12:46
And m, I thought the original plan (post melt down days) was to build a new massive stadium nearer the motorway! Just think how may tropical fish we could have fit it that! 🐠🐠🐠

15 Jan 2017 16:03:05
Curahee the original plan also included a basket ball and ice hockey stadium built in the old training pitches. hence the building of TA well that was the reasoning behind it if I remember rightly? And regarding nearer the motorway hiw close do you want it?

Cura, the new stadium was going to be built near the sewage works in cross green industrial estateand it was nick named smelland road. I used to work down their at the time and on a warm day it absolutely stunk of 💩

15 Jan 2017 17:58:54
Fair enough Lucas, thanks. I'm not from Leeds, so don't know the area particularly well, but I knew there was old plan for moving away from elland road.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Jan 2017 19:06:53
Sadly its not as simple as buying back ER and starting again there are planning constraints in place on the current ground (after all it is in a residential area) which would restrict us to if I remember rightly only knocking down the West Stand and copying the East increasing our capacity i think to about 42k. There was a suggestion that both the North and South stands were originally built to take another level but changes in building laws means that can't happen now. that's why in the dim and distant past there was talk of moving to the Cross Green/ Knostrop area so we could maintain great motorway links and build a new stadium with a 60k capacity, and assist the council in regenerating that area for industrial use. The other one was to build on the old training ground but that got thrown out at the very early stages due to the same planning issues as the original ground. So in short who knows what will happen

A R has done not a lot for the club yet. The improvement is down to Cellino. He eventually found the right coach and backroom staff and has learnt about English football in ownership terms. He salvaged the club when it was on its knees, endured the abuse from the idiots in LUST (IMO) , has bought out GFH and sold 50% to someone who appears to have cash and who says he wants stability. After the last month or so who wouldn't want to give Cellino credit. We could have been playing Exeter (no disrespect to Exeter) not near the top of the Championship

MC was rubbish with regard to on field management but settled the club and put the books right. Second year he had learnt a bit, stepped back somewhat from the spotlight and started to let the managers manage and select their own players. Third year he has learnt some more. Stopped playing musical chairs with backroom and management. Hired a good 'un and trusted him to do the job without interference. When he came on board he said we wouldn't be ready for promotion in the first two years and here we are in year three going as strong as we ever have been for the last 13. I don't know whether MC's evaluation of the time frame required was a reflection of the task at hand or more of his ability to grow into and understand his own role. Either way, hats off to him. I am glad to say I have always been a supporter. We owe him an awful lot. Well done MC.

Credit were its due, but MC got lucky with Monk. And let's be honest if he had read some stuff on here 7 or 8 games into the season then GM would have followed all the others out the door.

One or two more losses around that time and Monk was gone imo, and we would probably be fighting relegation once more. Fine lines i'd say. The feel good factor is down to one person and his name is Garry Monk.

Agree3 1Disagree

16 Jan 2017 18:19:34
MC eventually got it right. He got rid of a lot of the waste, gradually put the ship on the right course and endured the abuse. Without the owner we wouldn't have had Monk. Credit where credit is due. It's not just Monk. Without Cellino we would have been up a creek without a paddle.
