a centre back like James Collins would be great for this league, imo. Doesn't get much game time with west ham either. And a striker like Maupay from brentford who seems to be back up to Vibe. (Also scored against us recently)

Great to see that the club have announced the £220k for Toby Nye's treatment has been raised and will commence next week. The Chairman, staff and fans have all contributed to raise £175k and the final £25,000 was donated by Sammy Saiz (may have been a club fine for gobbing on a Newport player but who cares) . Fantastic gesture, which shows we are one big family. I can't remember the last time this club felt so together. Ffs I'm welling up now! #ALAW. MM

Stop it Mick, you'll set me off (sniff)

18 Jan 2018 12:37:56
Welling up again MM? Are there any occasions when haven't you had to be consoled by the SIL or at least wipe a little bodily secretion on a pair of her lacy numbers?

18 Jan 2018 13:21:33
Pure filth Lucas, as it should be! MM

18 Jan 2018 13:48:11
Shouldnt okane do same as saiz? Cough up tight irsish git.

18 Jan 2018 14:35:27
Absolute class act by Saiz!

I hope Forshaw does well but there is always a doubt when players drop down pecking orders. Lasogga was top once, Bridcutt was great but he slipped down as hasn't reached his former heights. There are lots of players who have a good few seasons then fade never to return. That's the danger of getting players who lose favour. They are exceptions - like Ayling of course but there are not too many. Forshaw had got out of favour before Pulis arrived. The new manager has done his assessment and agreed with his predecessor and has got rid. One would assume that if we were to play against Middlesborough or teams with equally good midfields Forshaw wouldn't be as good as his opposite number. I believe Pulis is a better judge than Orta or Christianson. As always I hope I and Pulis are proved wrong.

Agree3 Disagree2

Sanchez was out of favour at his time at Barcelona, was used very little by Pep and sold on to Arsenal. He came to England and has looked world class, even Pep wanted to resign him. Forshaw seems like he has a lot to prove, can we at least give him that chance. We have for the last few seasons taken chances on complete unknowns from various leagues with the majority being poor or out of their depth in this league. At least Forshaw has experienced this and a higher league with some success.

{Ed001's Note - Sanchez wasn't so much out of favour as he was disliked by Messi. That was why he was out of the team and sold.}

18 Jan 2018 12:17:27
If that were true Hesslian we would not have signed Wood as he was a Leicester cast off. Didn't do too bad out of that deal. Sometimes it does not work for a player at one club but can be a good player at another club.

18 Jan 2018 15:55:31
As I said it's a 'doubt' it can happen and players can turn it around. Wood wasn't that great when he arrived and aspects of his play remained poor -goals scored obviously improved a lot. He has had one very good season that might be just about it. With reference to the likes of Sanchez et al that's a completely different situation. It's about money and style of play. There is no doubt that they have quality. At our level some of the players just lose it for whatever reason. The secret appears to be identifying those players that can make it back and do a good job. The others just look poor and we've had lots of them.

18 Jan 2018 09:24:11
Why o why is there so much negativity- we needed a left back, got one we needed a CM, got one - now we are looking at strikers, i hope we get Messi or Kane or there will be more dissatisfaction

Agree6 Disagree1

18 Jan 2018 09:48:36
Don't fancy Messi or Kane 😎

18 Jan 2018 11:23:28
Agree. Messi is too old now. We need youngsters for the future. And Kane he's a flash in the pan.

18 Jan 2018 11:54:10
Isnt kane a southerner? Want english please. No kane or messi. And you can forget ronaldo or augero. Bloody foreigners. Plus they've never played chamionship football. Wont adapt to this league.

18 Jan 2018 12:18:30
Would be handy if you had a replica shirt with O'Kane written on it. just rub off the O'

18 Jan 2018 12:40:11
Kane's is not proven at this level. Ronaldo and Meesi are the wrong ide of 30 and Aguero is too injury prone. All a massive gamble and one I don't think we orta take!

18 Jan 2018 12:45:26
Does anyone actually have a shirt with O Kane on it?

18 Jan 2018 13:16:00
O'Kane has a few Brightwhite.

18 Jan 2018 13:49:48
Are they not the same player. Thought he was pulling a double shift.

18 Jan 2018 07:38:17
Latest guess from the press for our new striker seems to be David McGoldrick of Ipswich. Thoughts?

Agree0 Disagree2

18 Jan 2018 11:46:48
Must be in the Daily Sport that one? ! At least I hope it was, because I would not like to see that one cross the line!

18 Jan 2018 13:18:42
I wish it was the Daily Sport, at least there would be something interesting in it. Sadly just a carp website who are likely to just make up rumours rather than have any actual facts. 1. work out that Leeds need a striker
2. find striker at another club that could conceivably play for Leeds
3. write report linking Leeds to said striker
4. column inches filled
5. repeat with another striker
6. if any of the strikers linked actually move - claim the 'you heard it here first' credit

17 Jan 2018 20:54:59
Amazing how some on here want players with championship and premiership experience and when we get them they become " cast offs " and other clubs rubbish. You can't win sometimes

Agree12 Disagree2

17 Jan 2018 21:04:44
Well said wex, total agree.

17 Jan 2018 23:15:42
Gotta give boro guy a chance. I wanted someone who can run a midfield. Get stuck in and pass the ball. Seems this guy can do that. Form a bit sketchy but he has the experience in champ and prem! $2m a bit steep though. A bang em in striker and i reckon we could be in with a fighting chance of top 6.

17 Jan 2018 23:19:54
All transfers except free ones are cast offs. Even Neymar. He was a Barcelona cast off.

18 Jan 2018 07:31:59
Yes Forshaw hasn't been playing much under the current gaffer but sometimes certain players aren't for a certain manager and it works out better at a different club with a different philosophy and a slightly different role. Just because he isn't for Pulis doesn't automatically mean he won't do a job for us. Everton just paid £20m for Walcott who wasn't getting in the Arsenal team - does that mean he is hopeless, a 'cast-off' and won't do well?

18 Jan 2018 10:05:05
js walcott means we can go get aaron lennon

17 Jan 2018 20:01:00
Not good enough for Middlesborough. Enough said. He is probably another one who has had his best days,

Agree1 Disagree11

17 Jan 2018 20:23:18
Boro just got a new manager who prob is trying different things with the players snake bought. And Forshaw had an injury earlier in season too. Hadn’t played in about 5 weeks but is fit and ready to play again. A good solid experience midfielder in this league was what we needed so let’s wrlcime him as in my opinion it’s not a bad signing. MOT . just a good goal scoring experienced striker that will get 20 goals by end off season. Should do the trick. ⚽️⚽️⚽️👍😃

17 Jan 2018 20:49:53
Had his days at 26 yrs old ? That's me screwed then

17 Jan 2018 21:36:24
I'd be crap at boro as well Some players grow when they wear white My lad likes them scouse folk. His reaction when they signed the Ox wasn't repeatable I said at the time, maybe he needs a manager that believes in him, maybe Klopp sees something in the Ox. Currently my lads favourite player Now. Maybe TC can get this lad back to his previous form If so £2m is a good punt

17 Jan 2018 23:21:09
I think Forshaw will turn out good for us for sure! 😂

18 Jan 2018 00:17:15
We will see!

18 Jan 2018 02:50:31
You know how Pulis plays his teams. Unless he's a 'break yer legs' sit on defence player - he won't make the grade. Forshaw can pass the ball -no good for Pulis, could be good for us.

18 Jan 2018 03:11:22
Gave you a thumb up george!

18 Jan 2018 06:44:20
We needed cover in midfield now we have it - nuff said - can't argue with that.

18 Jan 2018 10:13:54
I see what you did there George, very good.

17 Jan 2018 18:19:15
deal agreed with Boro for Forshaw. Good signing imo. He was excellent at Brentford and in Boro promotion season.

Agree4 Disagree1

17 Jan 2018 18:51:00
Slightly better than what we've got in midfield interesting to note Orta signed him for Boro from Brentford know surprise there then his goal return is poor for a midfielder, but like I say slightly better than O'kane and Phillips.

17 Jan 2018 19:56:13
Exactly type of player urgently required in midfield. His old pal Dallas ought to or is that Orta help him settle in.

17 Jan 2018 17:10:18
Tenuous link to Leeds. Apparently Massimo sacked the manager of his new club in October, but has now sacked his replacement and replaced him with the guy who he replaced. For all of his faults, Massimo was never going to be accused of being boring.

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Jan 2018 18:46:54
Never a dull moment with the man Massimo! 😂😂😂

17 Jan 2018 20:09:31
Respect to the great man

17 Jan 2018 21:01:25
Please tell me it's hockaday.

17 Jan 2018 23:18:09
Good old mass! Leeds saviour!

17 Jan 2018 23:23:48
Wex Neither incoming or outgoing manager is great so who you talking about? It's not Daddy, is it? He's a mad march hare watermelon.

18 Jan 2018 02:54:18
Mass's times were exciting times. Sometimes for all the wrong reasons but exciting nevertheless.

17 Jan 2018 15:10:26
2 goals and 3 assists in his time at boro. another holding centre midfielder, would he be any better than Phillips, o'kane or viera? . appreciate we need cover short term for viera and o'kane who are both out, time to give klich another go, or do people think he's going?

Agree0 Disagree1

17 Jan 2018 16:07:29
Klich has burned his bridge. He was badly treated by the club though imo. Best for all parties he is moved on. Expect him to be loaned out to another club right before the deadline.

17 Jan 2018 16:44:16
Agree re his treatment, maybe he will start Saturday if viera is def out.

17 Jan 2018 18:34:07
Forshaw better than Phillips? Yes

17 Jan 2018 18:47:10
We all need to see him play a few games before we say he's better than anyone, I hope your right.

17 Jan 2018 18:49:15
Klich has spouted and whined too much on social gubbins, and needs to go. I know very little about Forshaw, but guess we will find out very soon.

17 Jan 2018 20:51:17
I have seen Phillips play Leeeeeds

17 Jan 2018 21:03:06
Phillips. Despite 53 managers in his at Leeds. Seems to be an ever present . Gets his nose dirty in the trenches. Every team needs one

18 Jan 2018 10:18:22
Talking nonsense Other Woody. This season is the most he has ever played. By your logic the same would have been said for Aidee White when he was a Leeds player
