Medical underway for £1.5m polish international . This is a very good signing, rumour has it the transfer budget is circa £20m . If this is correct we could see 8 or 10 more good quality players in the £1m to £3m price range come in . If this proves to be the case, think Monk had his head turned, as with this level of investment he should have been confident enough to stay on and do the job, thereby proving he was worthy of the longer contract he wanted and thought he was worth.

I think bridcutt will go now keep okane I just think we may go to another level next year. A big name manager doesn't mean success. Get another striker or push Rolfe upfront and I think we could be there abouts


2.) 22 Jun 2017 18:56:22
Brid won't leave, Phillips loaned out More likely, perhaps Sheffield united or burton? I wouldn't mind that.


3.) 22 Jun 2017 20:15:25
Monk apparently wants too take brid too boro. ? And has told downing he can leave. 32 years old but still a decent winger. Can cross and score. Cud do a deal maybe. Not sure if downing has a few or can go free. ? ⚽️😃👍


4.) 22 Jun 2017 21:04:50
Steve Evans is the source for the £20m figure so dismiss that immediately. He knows nowt. He just likes to think he does. Probably gets a few quid per quote. I doubt any of the regulars will be sent out on loan until TC has had a good look in pre season. He'll have an idea of what he wants from then and what he needs to add "to the group" as GM was so fond of calling them. Hernandez I really liked but if he didn't play neither did we. I can see him staying but not being the main man. Roofe I can see improving. I think there's better value than the rumoured £7m for barts even though he was a rock for us last year. Looking at some of the names being quoted, it's the second summer of optimism for over 15 years. That said there's few teams that look an easy 3 points and the ones that do, we lost away to last year. It'll be a dog fight every week. On, on, on


5.) 22 Jun 2017 22:10:08
A budget of £20m is probably not enough, unless we get lucky. I mean Hull and Sunderland have already received £17m and £25m respectively for players they've sold, plus parachute payments. I wonder how big their budgets will be?


6.) 22 Jun 2017 23:10:54
20 million is not enough to keep up with the rest. People talk this klich player up like he's a good player lol sorry but other than he's cheap his record is pretty lame. if you want to keep up you need players like bakary sako or someone who has played in this league and has been brilliant.


7.) 23 Jun 2017 01:18:47
Swadlad the lad hasn't even kicked a ball yet TCmightnhave ideas for him to play a different role or position? Personally don't see brid as captain this year, could we'll be jansson, green or wood for me? Who knows eh gents


8.) 23 Jun 2017 01:49:04
Not sure how you come to that Swadlad, Klich scored 6 with 4 assists in 29 games last season, scale that up to a champ campaign of 46 games and that's 10 goals 6 assists, more than the rest of our midfield put together. Also you can't compare him to Sako, he plays in a different position, we are looking at Alioski on the wing who scored more last season, in fewer games than Sako in his best season. No guarantee he would do it in the English Lg, but since Sako has scored 2 in 2 seasons no guarantee he could do it again either. Bringing players from overseas is a risk but they come in a lot cheaper and with lower wages. Do you think Jansson would be £3.5m now he's tested? Add loans and frees and I think we could easily challenge with a £20m spend if we recruit right.


9.) 23 Jun 2017 06:14:43
I agree gum and samo. Buy 6-8 cheaper players and you can afford a misfire or two. But 3-4 $4mill plus players and they all got to bear fruit. don't want brid this year let monk have him. And not realky wanting sacko or herna to be a starter. Think janson the obvious captain if he stays and can keep ego in!


10.) 23 Jun 2017 08:38:32
So what look at his overall record, ok he had a decent record last season but 1 season is no good to judge a player on. Bridcutt was our best cdm by far last season so if we get rid of him then we will need a good cdm and that's not klich, I agree with Hernandez shouldn't be a starter because he lacks effort imo. Sako is proven winger in this league n seems as we have Dallas and doukara who play in his position it's mad that we ain't even looking at him to join. We need to sell rubbish like Hernandez, Phillips, Dallas, antonsson and replace with much better players.


11.) 23 Jun 2017 09:05:00
Rubbish like Hernandez Phillips Dallas. ? Hernandez playing welll won us more games last season, Phillips is a good young prospect and will come good. Dallas when played ran his socks off and put effort in just final ball was lacking at times. But is a full international player who started at euros last season and is in the brink off World Cup qualifying with his country. So to say these guys are rubbish is a bit harsh. Also monk had them ( team ) playing defensive so I think you might see a different team and style from these 3 and team this season. In my opinion. MOT ONWARDS N UPWARDS. ⚽️⚽️👍🍺🍺 AND DOWN THE PINTS 🍺🍺


12.) 23 Jun 2017 09:19:12
Im not sure sacko is any more proven than douk or dallas. None of the really good enough.


13.) 23 Jun 2017 18:39:45
You keep your beer bottles on then, it's simple a team like Leeds should be in the premiership not struggling to get out of the championship, Hernandez is terrible, yes he got a few goals but he's a cam that's what he gets paid to do, and far to often last season he went missing. That was 1 of the biggest problems we had imo that lack of effort behind Chris wood. This samu saiz who we seem to be after is very similar which is disappointing. Phillips has effort definitely but he isn't great at defending or attacking so I'd rather sell and buy someone who is good at defending or attacking because Phillips is not niether. And as for dallas, he's just not going to get Leeds promoted, he will score 2 or 3 that's it, I didn't say our sacko I said sako from crystal palace is the type of proven player we need not the pathetic midfield we have at the minute. Where is our Tom cairney? I know he's well out of our price range but come on where is anyone similar to him in our team? That's what we need not Hernandez or samu saiz who will get you 5 to 10 goals a season if that.


14.) 24 Jun 2017 21:44:31
Dont really understand Saiz and I think Hernandez will be dropped if we play 433 this season Swad, also agree Philips isn't good enough right now but young enough to send out on loan, time to improve. don't see Dallas as a starter but like Douk his versatility makes him a good squad player, and we lacked depth last year.

Our mid is far from trash though, we played a certain way under Monk, with a 3 man of Bridcutt (or O'Kane) , Vieria and Klich we have a good balance of bite and forward movement (1 DM, 2 CM) .

I think your looking for us to bring in 20+ a goal player though, they cost stupid money, adding 2 or 3 goals in a couple of positions adds up quickly, is much more frugal and has the same outcome.


15.) 25 Jun 2017 20:07:53
Fair enough I actually agree with most of that. Just angry with the lack of goals from midfield last season it was pathetic imo. With the defence and gk and Chris wood we have some really good players but it's that midfield I have issues with, bridcutt I like but the rest just don't add up with the quality of the rest of the team. Phillips shouldn't be starting games if we are seriously trying to get promoted, ofc he's good to have as he's not the worst iv seen but he's not good enough right now. Viera is good but not good enough going forward. But the worst for me was Pablo Hernandez, as a cam you need far more assists from someone in that position.

The appointment of Bravo maybe a major indication of where the club is planning to go . As don't see him signing up just for the club to remain the same. Recruitment over the period before pre season will be the best sign yet of where we are going ?

PA

 

 

27 Apr 2017 18:47:47
With the appointment of Bravo we might see a real change in our fortunes as he would not be coming to us unless there was going to be a concerted effort and investment in the club .

His CV with Real Madrid on it does not need to pitch up at a club playing second tier football. Would love to know what has been discussed, promised and the plans going forward for next season. The players we recruit before preseason will be a good indication.

Leeds Utd staying Italian? Businessman and MP and Silva founder Andrea Radrizzani in talks to buy major stake in the club, according to sources

Word of warning: Radrizzani talks not yet complete, and I'm told it doesn't necessarily mean the end of Cellino at Leeds Utd. But deal close.

FYI
Leeds United have been linked with a move for Ternana's forward Felipe Avenatti according to Italian publication Ternana News.

It appears that there could be a feeling of déjà vu at Elland Road this summer as the West Yorkshire club have been linked with Uruguayan forward Avenatti once again.

The Whites failed in a bid to bring the Ternana forward to the club last summer and it appears that despite the arrival of Garry Monk, the club remains interested in signing the forward, with Massimo Cellino reportedly keen.

The 23-year old centre forward managed to score five times and provide four assists in 35 Serie B appearances helping his side finish in 12th place, comfortably in mid-table.

Following the arrival of Christian Panucci and as Avenatti is entering the final year of his contract, it appears that the Serie B may be more inclined to allow the Uruguayan to leave if a transfer fee can be agreed.

1.) 07 Jul 2016 13:49:15
sounds like lazy journalism to me. putting 2 and 2 together to make 5 potentially.


2.) 07 Jul 2016 14:13:15
To be fair I wouldn't want them let's move away from all the Italian links. They may be good players but we've all see this league and some can't handle it I'm very happy with our business and glad Cellino is putting up maybe people will come round a little with him now and all come together this season I personally can't wait for the season to start and be stood with my son cheering our club on this season with all my fellow lufc family.


3.) 07 Jul 2016 15:04:11
Aston Villa are also interested in him. We were also linked with in in June 2015, when we supposedly offered £3m.


4.) 07 Jul 2016 17:45:47
Think we are sorted in regards to forwards and gk, another c/ b would be good and let's hope we keep Taylor .

Saw CBJ's face when he was on he bench in an earlier fixture this season and thought then that there was an attitude problem . He needs to learn the old motto " Side Before Self" or he will find his career going down hill quite fast . Its all about attitude and how hard you work, if you cannot prove it at our current level you sure as hell can't prove it at a higher level . Someone needs to have a kind word in his ear, he then needs to take that on board very quickly or he won't get to many more opportunities .

PA

1.) 20 Sep 2017 19:58:37
Yes, I saw his face, on the bench, and hoped that he was pissed off with himself because if he thought he was too good to be here or too good to be subbed then the lad is in deep trouble and needs a counsellor before a trainer.

We have got to play our bigger more physical players like Grot, for the more physical away games especially . We can bring in the flair players later in the game

PA

1.) 17 Sep 2017 14:22:10
We need to mix silk with steel not abandon what we have started because we have lost one game. The issue with yesterday was that players are tired as we play a high pressing game therefore TC needs to make better use of the squad which has infinitely more quality than in previous seasons.


2.) 17 Sep 2017 16:27:59
Good posts. I'd have certainly played Swiss Army Knife, RV and Grot but this still a curve of education for Top Cat. Lesson learned when playing physical teams match them at least for first hour, 70 minutes. We all knew that but now so does TC. The reaction is what's important now and I'd set up for another physical encounter with Burnley.


3.) 17 Sep 2017 17:07:51
Have been trying to write similar for the last ten minutes, but keep getting clotched! We are Leeds, and should be able to front up any team in this league when it comes to mentality, and physicality, whilst also been able to play good quality football, as we have been up to yesterday. I do reckon that the squad we have allows us to do so, and it's just about mixing it up for the right games, or at the right time n each match! MOT!


4.) 17 Sep 2017 18:47:39
Saturday a good reality check for some of our newbies. At least they now know that some British teams do not give an inch of the park. Unlike on the Continent where a lot of teams give up the middle of the park. Hopefully they will learn and TC will drill into them how to combat the more physical teams.

Think the may have had their mind on Tuesday, instead of focussing on the game they were playing

PA

1.) 17 Sep 2017 21:32:24
Don't see why the players would have their minds on Tuesdays game, personally apart from the Taylor/Wood factor it's just another cup game. I would rather lose this one then any league game. We need to except that we lost a match against a team that raised their game against the team at the top of the league. Time will tell if TC has learnt anything from this game. Yesterday's chip paper, move on.

Alf thought it was slightly less around 16m and that is not adding in any wages. Rads also pledged circa £15m to the transfer kitty. Would like to think we could have £7m from transfer trading surplus plus the pledged £15m. Giving us a kitty of £22m. Think we will plug any perceived weak areas in January window and then reassess at the end of the season. From a business perspective even if you allowed for the purchase of the ground from these funds at £17m we still have £5m in the kitty to strengthen. Think Rads was also quoted as saying the cost of ground repurchase was costed separately and not part of any transfer kitty funds. Further to this and reading between the lines in one of his most recent interviews he was trying to say that with the large scale resources that he had to put in, if he could not get us promoted within 5 years of trying, he would move aside. More like saying if he couldn't achieve it with his funding there would be something wrong and he would let somebody else takeover

Dleedsm, think it might be more to do with contributions by us to his wages and his club waiting to see if anybody else was willing to buy him or pay more to his wages . The fact that he came over demonstrates he is keen to come here . Just the clubs wrangling over money
