Pontus gone then!
Maybe we'll never know the real reason, but just been reading that Monk dropped him for the good of the team. I'd forgotten about that.
Hopefully we have someone better lined up. New kit out tomorrow, so you never know? 🙏.

He’s one man and no man is bigger than lufc.


2.) 09 Jul 2019 07:37:22
Pontus has come out and said it's to balance the books for ffp, as to it this is true or not, who knows. Not like he is going to admit that it's down to his attitude and why we not held out for a better price of we need the money. How can a team like Brentford pay him upwards of £30k baffles me.


3.) 09 Jul 2019 15:23:33
Is Pontus spinning it?

He is not lying about the "FFP need" if Leeds need his transfer fee in order to pay for the new centre back they had identified prior to his sale.

It feels like Jansson's behaviour at the tail end of the season may have been the straw that broke the camel's back. The powers that be may have already looked and identified a more team orientated centre back

Looking at the management's track record they tend to sell before they buy (Viera before Bamford; Clarke before Costa) .

So I put to you, the jury, Pontus had to leave as soon as possible even if we lost a couple of million over a projected fee. We need his money in order to secure his successor. Otherwise someone else may get in before us.


As a business model I can understand it works well for businesses with limited capital, making best use of the cash flow model.

More talk on Clarke to Tottenham today. Looks like it could be happening. TBH I'd be happy with £20m for him. Don't get me wrong, I don't want him to go, but I don't see him being a player that is vital to getting us promoted.

danumwhite

1.) 18 Jun 2019 14:44:07
I tend to agree unless he features more than he did last season. He made an impact before Christmas when he was coming on but then after his mysterious illness (some kind of disagreement with the club perhaps after the Jan window? ) early Feb he barely played. Do we really have 3/ 4 years to develop him or do we need players who can make a difference right now?


2.) 18 Jun 2019 17:12:31
20MIL? Two 10mill wingers in his place. Go for it.


3.) 18 Jun 2019 18:34:55
£10m needed every year just to balance the books

£5 in reserve for fees, wages, taxes

£5m to spend on players.


4.) 18 Jun 2019 18:57:38
Sorry but I don't wanna see Clarke go. Seen too many of our youngsters go in the past and now we have a manager that believes in youth. Bad move for me! Saying that we might loan him back maybe?


5.) 18 Jun 2019 20:37:55
£20m for a young player with flashes of talent but not proven consistently is good business. Indeed, in games when he came back late in the season looked ineffective at times.

If it happens tho, Radz needs to notably adapt his 'loans and free agents only' mantra. That won't fly following (if this goes through) the club's second biggest transfer fee after Rio. Don't expect or want to break the bank, however especially don't want to see 1 yr loans bust this hopeful investment on a 1 yr promotion folly if we don't make it.

CB possibly Ben White (buy now not loan) Costa (buy) a second winger maybe Harrison given how much Bielsa seems to rate him (buy) and a central attacking playmaker with a killer pass to replace what we lost from Saiz leaving.

Sell, loan or in must desperate mutually terminate those doing nothing for the club (Ideguichi - looks nearly done - Saiz, Sacko, Cibicki, O'Kane, Anita, De Bock) . Jury out on if Casilla is leaving or not.

Use that to give new contracts to those deserving of them Roofe springs to mind (and purchase a new keeper if we do indeed sell Casilla) = fair.

IMO there are 3 people to blame for us not being in the top 2 at this stage. (Samu Saiz) , (whoever allowed him to leave) and (whoever cocked up the Daniel James transfer) .
I believe a fit, on form, committed Saiz would have gained us the few extra points needed. Someone should have told him to man up, remind his wife/ girlfriend he was a professional footballer when she met him and this is how it is.
Failing this I believe the signing of James would have gained us the extra points and impetus needed. 😠😠😠.

danumwhite

1.) 23 Apr 2019 09:56:45
Not sure on the Samu comment Dan but totally with you on the James situation.


2.) 23 Apr 2019 10:33:52
How often was Saiz fit and on form though? we should have binned him when he spat at the Newport lad. As for James, seems to me that it was Swansea's fault, I don't claim to know the ins and outs of it but if the lad was at ER and ready to sign but Swansea changed their mind what can you do?


3.) 23 Apr 2019 10:51:57
Saiz didn’t fit! He was lucky to be around after the spitting incident and never repaid us for sticking by him. Look at what has happened to him at Getafe, hardly taken the opportunity he had so desperately wanted has he! On his day, talented player but too few days and I suspect always on his terms. When you compare Hernadez, the man with Saiz, you see the difference!

James ultimately didn’t come because the Swansea Chairman ignored his owners instructions and then resigned before he was sacked. Not sure what we could have done to revive it as he wasn’t taking calls and would probably still have ignored instructions! I think on deadline day everybody closely involved bar the Swansea chairman thought it was all sorted!


4.) 23 Apr 2019 12:45:35
Danum Agree totally but the person solely responsible for both failures is Radz. Regarding Saiz, very difficult to resolve, a bit like Brexit but I would've only permitted him to go at the end of the season. As for James, Radz knew all along the proposed transfer was dubious because of the Chairman at the time. Had Radz offered the money up front, the Chairman would've relented. I think you'll find what actually cost us this season ultimately is Radz's money problems (this caused the poor structure of the failed James acquisition) from his tv rights debacle. Radz naive. If we don't get promoted via the playoffs, wouldn't surprise me to see Radz' true colours. Him selling up and Bub leaving. We've paid the consequences this season for Radz' mistakes when it all should've been so different.


5.) 23 Apr 2019 12:55:32
Spaniard Saiz did fit albeit only just. What he did at Newport wrong but he became a highly effective ball carrier which aided our overall play. He did need resting more frequently, as did other players but letting him leave was dumb and has cost us an automatic promotion and a diminution in his transfer value. As for James, you are right but miss the point. Radz knew this dynamic but failed to react and take decisive action. His tv rights debacle meant he couldn't restructure the deal to Jenkins liking so Jenkins put his foot down. If we fail in the playoffs (likely) I won't be surprised to see Radz sell.


6.) 23 Apr 2019 13:27:07
Guess we will never know. Not sure I follow your logic with James, Radz and everyone else thought the deal was done, why need to renegotiate anything. By the time it became apparent, too late. In my opinion Saiz is only good if he wants to play and even then when he has been given the opportunity he wanted in Spain, he hasn’t delivered. But it’s all in the past, we could have had both of them and still ended up where we are, who knows.

I think you might be more right about Bielsa going on then Radz in the short term, depends who is willing to buy and not buy. Not sure Bielsa will have the energy to go again or the players to go with him unless he can show how he has learned and that he really has the resources he wants.

Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. How was your Easter you were very quiet on here!


7.) 23 Apr 2019 13:53:08
Spanish Not good! Very depressed about losing to Wigan. There's other personal carp I'm going through right now. An Easter to forget!


8.) 23 Apr 2019 13:58:52
Spanish Radz and American counterparts at Swans thought, no hoped deal was done. They knew all along about Jenkins. Jenkins was the one who told McBurnie he's going nowhere. There was however a chink of light with Jenkins. He was passionate about protecting financial interests of Swans so informed everyone he'll only sanction deal if virtually all money paid up front. You know the outcome.


9.) 23 Apr 2019 14:32:59
That’s interesting stuff George. Hopefully Radz will learn from it! Sorry to hear your news. The personal stuff can help keep the football in perspective but the football can also provide some much needed relief at time. When both are bad, it’s not good! Feeling for you!


10.) 23 Apr 2019 17:01:17
Spaniard Thanks. Please bear in mind Radz economic with the truth. He said afterward "we did everything they asked". Yes, in a way he's right. Problem is he didn't do everything that EVERYONE asked, ie Jenkins.


11.) 23 Apr 2019 19:17:06
James was supposed to be Bielsa's number 1 target, so why did we not try to get the deal done early in the Window? Radz and his sidekick Kinnear have always been economical with the truth. Remember last close season when Kinnear was on a Season Ticket Sales Drive and he was telling us how many millions we had to spend as well as the 10 million from the 49rs. What happened to all that?


12.) 23 Apr 2019 22:34:39
Swansea were always trying to hold on to their key players and only sell as much as they needed. I suspect that James was the last one that they wanted to go and from memory he wasn’t the only deal that fell through on the final day once they had what they needed. In the end it worked out for them, they have benefited from his play and they should get a much better fee for him, so you can see why they did it.


13.) 23 Apr 2019 22:57:04
Spanish The "they" you refer to was Jenkins on his own. He left the following day. James' increase in value via goalscoring displays prove he was right. The benefactors, Swansea, are merely lucky as "they" intended quite the reverse, his sale.

08 Jul 2019 12:55:50
There's only one reason Pontus is going to Brentford. Bielsa told him to find a club. Pontus got off the plane at Heathrow and then he found the nearest club. ie Brentford. He was just trying to show his boss how clever he is! 🤣🤣.

danumwhite

On that basis he's lucky his flight didn't get diverted to Luton.


2.) 08 Jul 2019 13:49:04
Stansted FC.


3.) 08 Jul 2019 17:06:17
If those were Bub instructions and minus the word "new", Pontus had an opportunity to remain with us by flying in to Yeadon.


 

 

06 Jul 2019 18:27:50
Surely if Pontus is as good as some think he is, and Brentford have had a bid of £5.5m accepted, that means no one else has put in a higher one. Therefore no Premier League or top European leauge teams think he's worth paying more than that.
I've got a feeling we will be better off without him, mardy bar steward (imo) .

2.) 06 Jul 2019 19:54:08
Funnily I was just pondering the same

If Maguire is going from Leicester to Man Utd, followed by Tadoski (sp) from Burnley to Leicester. Why wouldn't 'just-down-the-road Burnley' fancy him as an option. The fee would be nothing to them

Obvious they don't share my opinion that he is PL standard.


 

 

02 Jul 2019 22:07:53
I'd take £25m for KP all day long.
We'd be mad not to!
Don't get me wrong he's decent, but not a patch on Lewis Cook, and what did we get for him?
£25m for KP is not peanuts! 😂😂.

danumwhite

1.) 02 Jul 2019 22:34:41
Yeah, but how much of that needs to be spent to get a replacement in? Furthermore, it's Villa that want him 🙄🙄🙄 get closer to £40M as it's that miserable eejit that wants him 😂🤣😂.


2.) 02 Jul 2019 22:56:57
I've said it before but we already have a replacement if needed for KP so it would cost nothing and we could spend the 25 million elsewhere!
Shackleton is IMO much better equipped for that role.


3.) 03 Jul 2019 03:30:14
Croatian U-21 international captain Ivan Sunjic has been earmarked for transfer to Leeds. He's a holding midfielder. Would cost around £4m. Birmingham City also interested. £25m too much money to turn down. Would be our 2nd highest sale ever.


4.) 03 Jul 2019 07:06:15
George I'd seen this link too, don't know a great deal about him though. Also seen thiago mendes, a player bielsa developed massively into this same role at lille, valued at around 12 million though so very expensive.


5.) 03 Jul 2019 07:21:13
I'd probably take the 25m, with the proviso that Bielsa is content to let him go at that price. No point taking the money to strengthen the side if we consequently loose Bielsa.

I'd also insist on a clause giving us first refusal if they decide to sell, letting him know that we would be in for him when promoted. Given it's Villa and that miserabilist Deano, perhaps on the qt we could suggest he do a professional job for them but maybe not pull up any trees - don't want them any higher than mid-table, and the lower the better. Maybe he could make the occasional error against teams at the lower end of the table, to keep it interesting, and ensure he was affordable when we came calling.


6.) 03 Jul 2019 08:19:50
If we were to accept the 25m, perhaps he could be encouraged to get into a training altercation with Hourihane and Grealish towards the end of the season and plant one on each of them for his mate Klich. Might also make it easier for us to buy him back. If Grealish has been sold, KP could surreptitiously wind him up each time Villa played against him, so he would lose his cool and get sent off.


7.) 03 Jul 2019 08:31:53
Can not agree more I know over the top in my dislike of kp but few could argue he is better than Delph, viera and cook who all played for England reason kp ain’t. 25 million is great price and for me kp ain’t fit to lace shack boots. Sell and bring in on tough tackling no nonsense ball winner andlwt shacks be the engine room and Klich be the class then with Costa Clarke on wings with roof up front Jansson and white alin and a stronger Douglas that ain’t a bad team with money to spend as well.


8.) 03 Jul 2019 10:17:27
One thing bringing in a player but this is Leeds you know we will sell then spend a month haggling on a player only to miss out on deadline day.


9.) 03 Jul 2019 10:35:54
Canada Shackleton is not right for the KP role . Has not played there before and too light weight . Better further forward where Klich plays or on flanks . If we could sell KP for £25 m ( think it would be less ) and actually spend all the money ( I doubt it ) on a decent replacement and competition up top for Roofe and Bamford then I could bear Kal’s loss . My other concern is where are our “ leaders “ on the pitch . All promotion teams have “ leaders “ and I’m not sure we really have any . Pablo very quiet . LC too damn nice . There’s Pontus but he’s too much of an individual and it looks like he could be off too!


10.) 03 Jul 2019 11:24:25
Sunjic would be an excellent buy but IMO not as good as KP. Shacks would be wasted as a DM and the only lad who looked capable, Diaz, of stepping up into that role has gone. Would rather keep KP and get Sunjic as well. 25mill is a lot of money though and everyone has his price. Its spending the money wisely that matters. If we are looking to strengthen for a promotion push then we should be keeping KP and adding cover for him not replacing him.


11.) 03 Jul 2019 14:25:21
Let's not get fixated on 25mill. Like we were with Clarke and his 20mill.


12.) 03 Jul 2019 14:26:51
Shacks definitely not for the KP role. Too slightly built at the moment imo. We would definitely need to buy a replacement.


13.) 03 Jul 2019 14:59:54
I agree shacks not right for kp role we need a jones type but Bielsa don’t like them, let’s remember kp ain’t right for the kp role he can’t tackle gets booked easy to bypass is targeted by teams as weak point and offers no defensive cover but mb still plays him their.


 

 

27 Jun 2019 12:47:55
Right. Now Clarke has just about gone, we need to get our new signings in asap. We know what Bielsa is like. He wants players to have six games in the U23s to get them up to speed. We really need all our players on the plane to Aus, if we are to hit the ground running next season.
