I see we are chasing Palasic. I hope he is a midfielder, with only 12 on the books we look to be a bit short in the middle of the park? Methinks a MASS clearout looms.

Midfield last year was nowhere near good enough.


2.) 28 Jun 2017 21:43:05
Alot of our midfielders need to move on imo. Dallas, Phillips, Hernandez would be the main 3 I'd sell, good players but none of them 3 will get you promoted.


3.) 28 Jun 2017 23:17:15
Murphy and Dave may be seen to go over phillips


 

 

20 Jun 2017 11:47:02
Can anybody tell me what is happening to the 2 players we were chasing not so long ago. Buegelsdijk and Avenatti. It all seems to have gone quiet with them?

leodis

1.) 20 Jun 2017 13:11:57
Heard absolutely nothing on these two of late. Perhaps with the new management team now on board, its a case of different strokes for different folks.


2.) 20 Jun 2017 16:44:49
If memory serves it was Cellino keen on Avenatti and Monk keen on Buegelsdijk so I doubt with a new board and staff they are still on the radar, that said a move for Buegelsdijk could be a shrewd bit of business.

It seems Empoli have pulled out of the Bellusci deal but now Bologna are interested with figures of 2 to 3 Million quoted. My advice to Radz, whatever the figure, just pay it! Let's get rid.

leodis

1.) 06 Jun 2017 14:09:37
too right. 2-3 mill is a right rip off!

Rumour has it that Chelsea are willing to let Kurt Zouma go on loan to get experience and build him up after injury. Worth a punt?

leodis

1.) 04 May 2017 17:39:32
Doubt he would join

Certainly time for a little TLC with Kalvin Phillips. Recent games have shown a dip in form. We all know what he is capable of when on song but at his tender age consistency and confidence are very brittle. Maybe it's time for Garry to throw an arm round young Kalvin and say that he is young, he will come again but for now he needs taking out of the firing line.

A few games in the reserves or even just on the training pitch will make him refocus on just what he is good at followed by a good long rest. A fit and hungry Kalvin Phillips is an asset to Leeds United and with the right coaching could become a fixture in games to come?

leodis

1.) 23 Apr 2017 19:54:46
Another player that would benefit from a loan move, get him somewhere that he can be a star man, somewhere a couple of bad performances won't hurt their season. You want youngsters coming through but calmer, senior heads tend to send you up when the pressure builds. One young midfielder is all we need in the squad right now and vieira is the better of the two.

IF our scouting team are good and IF we have hired wisely Andrea will save many millions in a couple of years with the potential quality of our youth team. Hopefully it will be celebrating at the top end of the league next season. I am just as excited for them as I am for the first team.

leodis

1.) 23 Jul 2017 10:51:00
Agree leodis. Georgie boy commented on this in another thread about people saying that these unknowns for the U23 were a waste of money when they are youth players signed from the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid. Could be potential stars when they develop. Who knows we could have the next Messi or Iniesta on the books! I think Radz and co are using their contacts in the Spanish etc markets to bring some potential stars to Leeds and we possibly have an advantage over a lot of clubs. Together with our own crop of talent, the conveyor belt of yoof is as strong as it's ever been. Could save us a fortune in the transfer market and also provide some sell on revenue if needed. MM

Just looked at a few videos of Ekuban. Now I say that even I could mash up 30 secs of film to make me look like Messi but must say this lad did not set the world alight in his Skills and Tricks promo. 2 good goals and the rest defenders blunders. Hopefully TC can see something I can't if not we have paid a lot of money to improve the reserves.

leodis

1.) 14 Jul 2017 12:54:10
How about becchio, beckford, snodgrass and gradel before they came to Leeds?


2.) 14 Jul 2017 17:28:24
Don't know but I bet they looked devastating on their promo videos.


3.) 14 Jul 2017 17:38:31
U know who they are right? 😂


4.) 14 Jul 2017 21:11:22
I haven't seen the video, but surely it's not his jo to score good goals, it's his job to punish the defensive mistakes! Good goals surely need to be Hernandez and siaz's job


5.) 15 Jul 2017 05:33:57
Gotta be in it to win it. Score goals. Get played.


6.) 15 Jul 2017 16:13:11
I'd much rather see a great goalscorer than a scorer of great goals :) (work that one out)


 

 

12 Jul 2017 11:29:04
Does anyone think that with the number of forwards here (or who will be here) we are building for life without Wood?

leodis

1.) 12 Jul 2017 12:02:17
Yes, unfortunately, it is a fear I have


2.) 12 Jul 2017 12:02:58
I doubt it very much


3.) 12 Jul 2017 12:07:59
I'm sure if we were selling Chris Wood, his replacement wouldn't be a cheap punt from Albania.


4.) 12 Jul 2017 12:52:16
There could be one or two lower level PL teams thinking about buying him, but wondering if last year was a flash in the pan. We will have played six games before the transfer window closes. If Wood scores 4/5 goals in those games then someone might just take a chance on him. Leaving us no time to get anyone in. 😱


5.) 12 Jul 2017 14:31:36
I doubt we will sell
if we do we will def make sure we have time to replace him
We not stupid anymore. We being run right.


6.) 12 Jul 2017 14:56:41
Very much doubt it. Rad would be shooting himself in the foot after all the good work so far. That said, if a stupid offer came in. ?


7.) 12 Jul 2017 16:07:00
Every player at every club is for sale when stupid offers come in. It's what you do with the money if you accept the stupid offer that matters


8.) 12 Jul 2017 18:47:17
No don't think so


9.) 12 Jul 2017 18:38:36
Not just what speedyg but when. Sometimes big money offers come in and there's no time to find a replacement. If a PL club offer us 15m+ on deadline day think we'd take it and just struggle on for a few months using what we have.


10.) 12 Jul 2017 19:15:37
Might not be a struggle Georgy boy. Might be easy peasy. Who knows? Don't think TC is planning to play 1 up front somehow


11.) 12 Jul 2017 19:59:14
If the deal completes I can see TC playing Saiz in the Hernandez position alongside Wood and again if the deal completes I can see Alioski being given a free roving role to support as and when. Could be the new Kewell.


12.) 12 Jul 2017 20:15:01
Well it's going to make much better watching than us planning for 0-0 and hoping we get lucky 😁😁


13.) 12 Jul 2017 21:39:32
Personally think Roofe, Erwin and Antonsson are fighting for 1 place right now, maybe Douk too. At least 2 or 3 of those 4 will go up for sale when we get back from training camp after TC has had time to assess them I have to think.


14.) 13 Jul 2017 10:53:21
Gummie Made similar post up top in reply to LIG. Ant is gone in my opinion. You've also got to factor in Ekuban, Stokes and Wilks too. I'd keep Douk. I like him as an impact sub for last 20 odd minutes. I think Roofe will stay but he'll be told he must produce more end product. The real conundrum is what you do with Irwin because he's apparently looking sharpest ever been. It's a nice headache for TC to have but Ant must go now. There's simply no room.


 

 

09 Jul 2017 19:39:46
Never seen him play but from everyones comments the signing of BPF may well prove just as important as Janssen or Saiz in years to come. Just hope he finds a happy home next season and returns with his education well enhanced ready to challenge for the first team slot.

I have to say I view some of the Gung ho comments with a little smile. The truth is that all of these previously unknown foreign targets are, as I have said, unknown and the only "scouting" most people have done is via Youtube and as we know most people can look good over a 30sec clip. Having said all that I (without proof to the contrary) put my faith in the recruitment team, although even they have certain question marks over some areas.

Until the season starts (or even 3 months after) I will reserve my judgement on some of these "good buys" and just see if they can replicate there foreign form in the UK Championship.

If we have just paid 3m and half must go to his previous club have we just bought a 1.5m footballer?

The only things missing were man management and common sense. I can see both sides yes, if asked he should have played, but was it worthwhile picking a man who clearly does not want to be there in a nothing game. Surely better to have a look at a youngster and save the recriminations. I would suggest that anyone clearly fully employed by a company but working their notice, before moving a far higher paid sunshine job, would find some way to wriggle out of a shi**y assignement on his last day. Especially if it carried a possibility of injury. I would either cop a sickie or do the job half hearted and when the firm had to send someone to complete it I would be long gone. My employers however would know this and, I would hope, send someone else in the first place. Maybe another way out would be to play and "pull a hamstring" after 10 mins. Who is to say which is the more ethical. Yes you are right he is a Leeds player but common sense must prevail.

If M&S did transfers? Maybe we could buy a whole new team play them in 5 or 6 games then send back the ones we don't want. Sounds like like a future plan to me.

Got to say thanks Bermo. Apart from someone talking in Turkish the video was very good.

Just finished watching our 3-0 defeat to Bursaspor I saw Anita, Alioski and I think Saiz playing. Silvestri appeared to play in goal both halves. We were just about okay for a pre season friendly but easily beaten by a better team. Still a lot of work to do.

just read that I could possibly see this on Bursaspor website. Does anyone know if I have to set something up in advance?
