It will be a big mistake by Radz if a big offer comes in for KP and he sells him.
We will not be able to replace Phillips with the same caliber, he is in my estimation our most important player.
Radz should have the same steadfastness as Spurs with Kane and West Ham with Rice.
I don’t want to see Raphinha leave also but rather him than KP if funds are needed.
It is worthy to note that we can not replace these two like for like, Leeds will not be able to afford it. We have to replace them with a lesser player or one that shows potential for the future.
As an example, Villa sold Grealish for a100 Mil, i think they were better with him than without.

Think Phillips may stay one more year if we buy the right players. He will need to see quality come in to stay.
Unless club get a big enough offer and choose to sell him.
Don’t think we need another winger. If we sell raph spend it all on one creative midfielder. Or striker.

Dont want to see Leeds sell KP, Raph or Harrison for that matter

But is KP really our ' most important player' OP?

KP has had a lousy season even when playing under MB and doesn't seem to fit that well with JM

Crucially he is out injured for long stretches every season.

KP is a ball winner not really a match winner, he doesn't score doesn't assist, he doesn't influence the outcome of the match more than an inform Raphinha nor a Pablo when Leeds were in Championship.

If Citeh were to offer £80 plus million that would be quite a bit more than I think he is worth and would be ok with that.

The huge most important issue for Leeds will be scoring enough goals next season if both Raph and very unwisely Harrison is sold and quality goalscorers not brought in.

Leeds need to recruit as many effective goalscoring players as possible up front, CAM, other midfield, full backs etc or its going to be another very tough R battle season.

KP has peaked. I think Bielsa has got him to as high a standard as he will ever attain.
Very happy for him to stay but if 60 mill plus is offered I'd take it.

It’s so easy to say a player is not important when he’s not charging upfield, assisting and scoring goals.
That’s why it always goes unnoticed, KP is the engine in that defensive midfield role, it’s a thankless job but he does it so well. That’s why he’s an England international player and is potentially sought after by several elite clubs.
Make no mistake, we lose KP for good we are worse off than we were, which I think we all know what that means!

We need mids who score regularly, our midfield goal tally is shockingly poor .

The modern day game demands goals from more then 9,s or 10,s nowadays . I agree that if mad lolly was to 🫴 me in for Kal we should be weighing up the merits of it

IF +ONLY IF, it's reinvested in the 1st team squad .

Baz do yo think our defense is not a problem anymore? One of the worst ever in the Prem, KP was injured for that period we were losing by cricket scores to nil.
I can’t believe that anyone would think we would be better off without him!

KP is important of course to the team ; it's just that you stated he was the 'most important '.

this season he certainly wasnt nor any season for that matter

Chris; yep we definitely need goalscoring midfielders and players who score whatever their position; Bremner, Giles, Lorimer, Charlton, Paul Hart, Frank and Eddie Gray Strachan, McAllister, Speed, Hodge, Fairclough, Sterland, Bowyer, Bakke, Harte, Pablo Etc types.

OP yes KP was injured ( yet again! ) an injury prone player is not the greatest of use.

Was that not a cause of Bielsa’s very heavy training sessions? Murderball etc.

Statistically we lost more games when KP wasn’t playing than any other player in our championship winning season and our 1st season up. I haven’t seen this season and him and bamford missed huge parts so I think bamford missing this season hasn’t helped either but as above statistically he’s our most important player to get results.

LAD2 not having a specialist CDM in KP absence a big reason for those ' stats'
