Orta teasing 'We are near to signing a big surprise from Asia'. Now under the last few regimes I would have got all worked up and it would turn out that we where opening a Panda Express in the food court. Under current management however I feel like a kid at Christmas with the excitement. Player or sponsor? what do people think?

Gummie

1.) 05 Sep 2017 10:45:15
Free agent for the U23 side I think. Or it's a new sponsor. Orrr, we have sold a player for 75m to a Chinese team


2.) 05 Sep 2017 12:00:12
Can we even sign players outside of the transfer window or would this only apply to free agents? MM


3.) 05 Sep 2017 12:18:14
Free curries for all west stand season ticket holders, fact


4.) 05 Sep 2017 12:42:48
Only free agents MM (Dont know if anyone follows the Chinese Lg and knows if any big name is recently out of contract? ) , that said we could "sign" someone in the sense of putting a deal in place for January rather than a player for straight away. A youngster could be right EG especially since we just hired a head of development, or whatever it was, for Asia. Maybe set to sign the next big player from Japan or some such. All that said I wouldn't mind a big fat sponsorship out of China, would be great to bring in all these players and still turn a decent profit for the season, get the club back on the financial footing it once had.


5.) 05 Sep 2017 13:43:54
Can't sign players till January but can agree to sign players. I think it'll be the 'next big thing' from China or Japan. As much as I would love a big sponsorship deal from the wealth of China it could also be a agreement with another club in Asia, like what we have with the second division Spanish team.


6.) 05 Sep 2017 14:07:45
Jackson Martinez is a free agent and was just playing in China 😅


7.) 05 Sep 2017 15:03:22
Is tevez a free agent?


8.) 05 Sep 2017 15:27:08
I would suspect a sponsorship deal. Hate it when clubs announce sponsorship deals as 'signings'.

Second bid of £16m put in for Wood from a different Prem team (unnamed) , also knocked back. I mean if we do accept £20m for him Sheff are looking to offload Rhodes. £7m-8m for him with £13m in change might not be the worst bit of business ever as much as I'd like him to stay.

Gummie

1.) 12 Aug 2017 02:18:11
I'd 100% rather 16 mil change and Lasogga!


2.) 12 Aug 2017 04:22:48
No to rhodes.


3.) 12 Aug 2017 10:57:55
It's a no for Rhodes from me as well. If he isn't cutting it at Weds, then why would we expect him to do what we know Wood can do ! . He wouldn't get 20+ goals a season. If we do sell Wood for £18m, then I suggest we spend all of it on another sure fire goal scorer from somewhere, and not necessarily British as they are all over priced!


4.) 12 Aug 2017 11:04:43
Lasogga worries me a bit, he has averaged a goal every 3.35 games throughout his whole career, especially with his reported wage too! However his fifa 17 rating is alright ;) .


5.) 12 Aug 2017 12:02:30
That's good, Fifa never lie so he must be a good un


6.) 12 Aug 2017 13:43:13
Rhodes won't score 20 a season? He is one of the most consistent scorers at this level. hasn't worked out for him at Weds but he had been sat on a bench for 6 months at Middlesbrough. 19, 16, 37, 28, 25, 21, 16 are his goal tallies for the 7 seasons before, the ones with less than 20 goals he missed a handful of games. If we can get him for less that £10m when teams are paying £15m for 15 goal a season players its a no brainer.


7.) 12 Aug 2017 14:15:23
Rhodes for 2mil. Worth a gamble


8.) 12 Aug 2017 19:39:46
yes to Rhodes but also keep Wood.


9.) 12 Aug 2017 22:07:02
No sale Woods is in for the long haul From now on, we are not a selling club unless it's fringe players


10.) 12 Aug 2017 23:02:48
Every club apart from the 2 clubs wrong side of Pennines, those 2 minnow clubs from Spain and PSG who appear to have more money than the richest man in the world are selling clubs. Even if you sell at right price you're a selling club.


11.) 12 Aug 2017 23:08:34
Where we're going, we don't need Rhodes 😄

Loan bid put in for Juve CB Quasim Bouy (24) supposedly.

Gummie

1.) 31 Jul 2017 20:56:11
Hes a free agent. Supposed to be signing him on a free and loaning him out


2.) 31 Jul 2017 21:05:03
Signed on a free, and loaned to Spanish 2nd div for a year to develop.


3.) 01 Aug 2017 08:31:38
Small for a CB. At 5.11"


4.) 01 Aug 2017 11:12:38
Just been reading up on him, seems he's a midfielder. Was once expected to become one of Europe's best but lost his a way a bit. Leeds hope to help him get back the promise he showed as a youth at ajax by loaning him out for a season. Maybe with some hard work and good coaching he will be one for next season as he's 24 already.


5.) 02 Aug 2017 10:11:33
He is DF but can play CB. Talented player who has lost his way a bit. Hopefully we can straighten his head out.


 

 

27 Jul 2017 14:13:49
Story coming out of Ireland that we are chasing Marc Wilson (CB/LB) from Bournemouth. hasn't played an awful lot the last 2 seasons so available on the cheap (£1m quoted) . No mention if we would want him at LB or CB, has played a similar amount in both, but with 200 ish games in the top flight he could be a shrewd bit of business.

Gummie

1.) 27 Jul 2017 23:31:59
Would make an adroit signing Gumster especially at that price. My only concern is contacting lowly placed PL clubs about their players may result in them enquiring about Wood.


2.) 28 Jul 2017 13:20:54
Your all being really silly now! I will put you all out of your misery. it's Finger Rita! Now stop all the funnies, it's getting tiresome. 😂😂


 

 

19 Jul 2017 21:57:13
Another youngster on his way in for the U23s, the fantastically named Adrian Balboa (ST) , let's hope he makes it, he doesn't even need a song, you just shout Adrian in your best Rocky impersonation every time he scores, or do the Rocky theme.

Gummie

1.) 20 Jul 2017 09:59:08
Boxing clever with that signing
Punching above our weight


2.) 20 Jul 2017 14:06:07
will be good to have Balboa in our corner.


3.) 20 Jul 2017 23:35:50
could even be our RINGER! ha ha ha er sorry Alf Lad mot

First one of the day, how many more? Lassogga should be next, but will there be any surprises?


2.) 31 Aug 2017 12:11:22
Lasogga should be done soon as long as we can sort the remaining paperwork. Would like to see another CB just in case the mistakes start to creep back into Coopers game but not essential.


 

 

30 Aug 2017 21:11:48
Leaked pics of Cibicki signing the contract and with a Leeds shirt doing the rounds, Guessing an official announcement tomorrow.

Gummie

1.) 30 Aug 2017 21:32:22
Yep sure looks like he's signed! MOT


 

 

23 Aug 2017 13:32:57
Kun Temenuzhkov not to be upstaged by Roofe with a hat trick on his U23 debut.

Gummie

1.) 23 Aug 2017 14:09:59
Beat me to it Gummie - soz bud i didn't see this. I hoped to see a bit of Kun last night but it was not to be.


2.) 23 Aug 2017 18:54:52
Hopefully the Kun T will be massive in years to come with a few more performances like last night. Seen the highlights, good penetration, excellent ball play with some superb dribbling


3.) 23 Aug 2017 20:33:17
what took you so long, put it on hours ago.


 

 

23 Aug 2017 13:15:29
Fun fact: after the cup matches last night we are the only unbeaten Championship team left.

Gummie

1.) 23 Aug 2017 13:19:28
Great fact, I love it. MOT


2.) 23 Aug 2017 13:26:07
And soon maybe to be the only one unbeaten in championship matches?


3.) 23 Aug 2017 14:38:03
Interesting fact. Long may it continue.


4.) 23 Aug 2017 14:59:11
If we can make it through the Forrest game it very well might carry on for a while, couple of games against teams at the bottom end after that one.


5.) 23 Aug 2017 19:37:14
Might gummie, but don't get hit in the face when they throw in the towel! Also I can see bridcutt score the only goal of his career on Saturday


 

 

20 Aug 2017 20:43:49
Just had a gander in the out of contract section on Transfermarkt to see if we can sort out our striker problem quickly and for the hefty price tag of £0. Cheick Diabate (29) Mali international 94 goals in 216 games, Raul Rusescu (29) Romanian international 107 goals in 325 games and oft linked Felipe Avenatti (24) , slightly less impressive 45 in 175, all up for grabs. Now wages might be an issue, not sure what sort of pay packets these guys are used to, but if we could get one on an acceptable contract might be worth a look before we shell out £10m+ for a Wood replacement.

They can also make allowances if the player is considered of wonderkid potential, rules are a more negotiable at tribunal for any player under 20 supposedly.

Cibicki looked at by a number of big European clubs, must have been a reason for the interest so i'm optimistic. Did see something with a coach commenting that he was more likely to be a success than Antonsson has been due to a higher level of technical ability.

Interesting one this, doesn't seem a world beater but tracked by Man U, Ajax, Napoli, Celta Vigo and Real Betis up till very recently (£7.5m price tag at that point) which suggests that maybe he could be a shrewd signing for £1.5m. Only 14 goals and 10 assists in his last 46 (ie a champ season) but if you take away last season (wonder if he had a couple of injuries because he didn't play the whole season, maybe unfit as a result too) he hit 18 with 18 assists in 46 which is a bit more impressive. Before everyone panics about an unknown striker leading the line, are we sure this isn't another signing to be instantly loaned to Cultural rather than the starter for us?

If Green isn't going to start games then its only fair to let him go, Longergen is a decent backup.

Struggling to see the problem TC has - Ekuban injured for a while, Grot U23's to start with (could see him going out to Lg1 in Jan when Ekuban is back) , Cibicki starts on the bench because he is versatile and can replace anywhere in the attacking line. Roofe will probably keep his place until Lasogga is match fit then the one doing better starts with the other as back up (as it should be) . It just looks like squad depth not too many to handle. As for defence Martyn LB - Anita CBJ CB - Cooper Shaugnessy Jansson Pennington RB - Berardi Ayling. don't get me wrong I would like us to bring in another senior CB but we do have 2 in each.

Top player but would fit the way TC wants us to play so a waste of wages.

For me Roofe and Doukara aren't natural strikers, always look a little lost when they play up top. Said last cup game that I would have liked to have seen one of the new youngsters given a run out and I still think it would be a good idea to blood a couple of them if we think they have a long term future at the club. Temenuzhkov maybe still a little young but Siddiki and Balboa are both 19, would expect them to be pushing to get on the bench. With Wood on his way, Ekuban injured, Ant out on loan and a cup match against a lower Lg side I can't think of a better time to find out if they can step up, the rest of the squad should be good enough to see us through regardless.
