Apparently Leeds are rushing to buy Ballo-Toure should be done by 1st sept then, oh and have you read all the shite about Firpo transfer if it is even half true tell em to shove it and keep him.

Rumour regarding max Aarons again we looked at him last year apparently 10 million been put on him thoughts boys and girls?

Oldbri

1.) 12 Jul 2024 13:11:43
A big NO.


2.) 12 Jul 2024 14:25:15
Prefer Wober or even Verstappen.


3.) 12 Jul 2024 21:07:03
Think it says a lot that they're looking to move on so quickly after signing him, possibly injury and/ or attitude problem. Yes working with Farke might help his undoubted talent resurface but no guarantee. Would be interested at £5m or a loan with option to buy at £7.5m but not for £10m. Worth revisiting if expectations are lowered.


4.) 12 Jul 2024 21:57:32
Good post Ealing.

Rumour kamara to rennes personally hope it's not true.

Oldbri

1.) 04 Jul 2024 11:27:50
Hope not. But depends on the coin I suppose.


2.) 04 Jul 2024 11:32:34
I don't know I think almost every player has a price in this squad. If we paid around £5m for him and were offered around £10m then I would take it. We have Rodon, Struijk and probably one of Wober or Cresswell for CB, Amps will play in CDM and be cb backup, Aaronson will be involved in mid/ CAM, and I rate Gruev higher than Kamara myself. Someone or even two from Gruev, Ampadu, Kamara and Aaronson are likely to be the odd ones out on the bench given (for now) we likely accommodate three from Rutter, Summerville, Gnonto and James. I'd sell Kamara for a good profit (and only a good profit) and look to maybe use Charlie Crew as the second mid option from the bench.


3.) 04 Jul 2024 11:50:24
Would allow more opportunities for Charlie Crew, and maybe a more offensively minded signing? Nice guy, great value signing and a good player 95% of the time, but won’t be unduly disturbed if he leaves. If he stays, then also good with that.


4.) 04 Jul 2024 11:52:34
Spot on Ealing.
Take a profit for Kam, Gruev is the better MF option.


5.) 04 Jul 2024 16:15:16
Gruev and Kamara aren't exactly like for like tho, so don't think it's either or. Gruev is a deep lying, ball winner who can pass fairly well and Kamara is more of a metronome, in that passes mostly go to him to get somewhere else and he plays a bit further up the pitch. Better press resistance too as he can play both ways, back to goal or pitch in front of him. But he can also disrupt play defensively. Gruev easier to replace imo. Kamara is good for shifting through the phases of play.


6.) 04 Jul 2024 17:27:42
What Dill said.


7.) 05 Jul 2024 08:18:23
Not disagreeing Dill, but that’s where I think Kamara falls short, in that being further up the pitch but not getting direct assists and goals let's him down. He has been in shooting positions so many times, with clear shots at goal, and opted not to. I would prefer someone to pull the trigger when the opportunity arises. It needs to be Gruev OR Kamara, not both imo, for us to go that one step further this season. We’ve turned down big offers for Gruev, so clearly he is the one we would prefer to keep.


 

 

02 Jul 2024 15:32:34
Summerville an interest for PSG rumors hmm.

Oldbri

1.) 02 Jul 2024 22:47:55
Please ? no. I love ? the young man.


2.) 03 Jul 2024 01:58:01
He’s gone already. Get used to it. Just hope we get mega dosh for him. Specially if it’s psg.
Think Leicester let hall go on the cheap too.


3.) 03 Jul 2024 08:03:02
I agree Aus. I think if we can get another 35-40 in the bag from him, then we are set. AG + Cree fees will enable some very effective strengthening across the board.


 

 

24 Jun 2024 19:14:54
Any news on mes has there been any Interest or is he ours for another season.

2.) 25 Jun 2024 20:59:33
Good news

Marseille are allegedly in for Gashlier.


3.) 26 Jun 2024 08:22:38
It’s only good news if they’re willing to pay top dollar for him, allowing us to buy a top quality replacement, which I doubt Marseilles will be offering.


4.) 26 Jun 2024 13:16:16
Brighty
The Rotherham keeper who went to.
Stoke for £1 million is far better than Gashlier

Leeds need a highly competent reliable gk and with savvy recruitment it won't cost much.

For Leeds United to progress. Meslier needs replacing.


5.) 26 Jun 2024 14:16:00
Believe we missed the boat with Johansson.


6.) 27 Jun 2024 07:32:22
Deffo missed out there, Bri.

20 Jul 2024 10:04:01
After a performance like that against lower league opponents, Piroe was awful, I know first game and all that but even so he was slow, ponderous and anonymous for the majority of his time on the pitch, I think it's time for him to knuckle down and show us why we bought him. He has scored quite a few goals in the past and to be fair he scored 14 I think last season (feel free to correct me if I am wrong) so it's obvious he can do the business but something is amiss.

Oldbri

1.) 20 Jul 2024 10:34:18
Watching the game it seems clear that he’s not a happy lad, it’s been well documented about his lack of pace and movement, but nobody can deny the lads goals to games ratio is excellent.

It’s a weird one, but just maybe it was a panic buy for last season promotion and certainly playing him behind Gio was a disaster as he’s just not mobile enough.

Saying all that if we sold him to one of our rivals nobody would be surprised if he bagged twenty plus goals in any team.

It may be case of cutting our losses (Joseph looked excellent, but can he score at the same ratio? ) or waiting to see the finished team, formation which be without both Cree and Gnoto and Piroe gets the right sort of service he clearly got at Swansea

Think I would hold onto him at least until Christmas (if we can afford the budget, which doesn’t stop us getting a top target)

Despite his £35k a week whatever it is I actually feel a little sorry for him as we’re not giving him those goalscoring opportunities.


2.) 20 Jul 2024 11:25:04
Definitely a panic buy without proper research performed by the scouting team. He scored a lot so they pegged him as a number 9, which he is not. Same stuff happened with Iliman Ndiaye and Chuba Akpom. Scored plenty of EFL goals from 10 or SS and then teams buy them and play them as a 9 and it doesn't really work out or prove to be anywhere near as fruitful as when they play in a system that compliments them.

Piroe can score goals, but he's system specific and to put it plainly, we don't suit him and he doesn't suit us at all. Furthermore, we shouldn't change to accommodate him over the likes of Cry, Rutter, etc, who play well in our current system.


3.) 20 Jul 2024 11:49:59
Unfortunately on this proformance Baz looking right again team won but a long way off .


4.) 20 Jul 2024 11:52:45
Agree Dil.

Piroe is a great goal scorer but he doesn't fit in our team. Farke keeps trying to force that square peg in a round hole but it doesn't work.

Not only that, the team play better when Bamford or Joseph are on the pitch.


5.) 20 Jul 2024 11:56:56
In which case Dill

that's a significant indictment on the competency of our scouting and recruitment team.

I recall YouTubers system analysts Lockie and Andrea BOTH stating

in previous summer window before Piroe was even signed that he simply did NOT fit a Daniel Farke system.


6.) 20 Jul 2024 12:52:49
With everything that was going on last summer it's not a shock tbh, Baz. We needed some firepower and I guess Hammond and team thought "this lad scores goals".

Saving grace is we've got two new guys in the recruitment hot seat now, in Steinsson and Miles, so fresh slate this summer.


7.) 20 Jul 2024 13:36:18
Excellent posts guys but I also think we bought him because there was no-one else available we could get in as a number 9 who was Championship quality. Panic buy for a significant part but more of a damage mitigation purchase to offset the problem.


8.) 20 Jul 2024 14:01:45
Yep, agree George.


9.) 20 Jul 2024 20:56:47
Piroe, like Kamara, was only bought because our preferred targets were unavailable to us. This is why we waited so long to make the signings.


10.) 20 Jul 2024 23:13:40
Seems so Alf. At least Kamara worked out well.


 

 

20 Jul 2024 09:50:37
Wober, do we keep him or not, I can't see anyone buying him so it would be another loan, however he is left sided and we do need cover on that side especially if Firpo leaves. Personally I would keep them both as we would spend more on less experienced players and as for Wober he is after all an international player and Austrian* (might keep red bull happy) but if either or both do leave who would we like for left back position.

Oldbri

1.) 20 Jul 2024 10:26:14
For me definitely keep Wober. He can play LB and CB win win.


2.) 20 Jul 2024 11:30:13
Keep him. He'll be more than useful this season.


3.) 20 Jul 2024 12:01:40
Wober is 100 % needed . a very good player at this level certainly

And can play

LCB and LB

No more frikking loaning him . its stupid.


4.) 20 Jul 2024 13:38:27
Isn't the choice his though if someone comes in for him on a loan basis?


5.) 20 Jul 2024 14:13:06
So George if someone wanted to loan DJ or amps and they wanted to go we would have no say in it?


6.) 20 Jul 2024 14:28:24
Regardless of his abilities he won’t be giving 100% because he doesn’t want to be at Leeds Utd.
If they can loan him out again I’m sure that’s what will happen to him. He has mentioned nothing about wanting to stay at Leeds so I can’t for one minute think that’s what will happen.
Aaronson as much as I don’t rate him at least has publicly announced that he wants to prove himself for Leeds this season.
Any player who wants to wear the white shirt, give 100% and is selected, regardless of their abilities I am supporting them in the team.

If not they can Rack Off.


7.) 20 Jul 2024 14:34:12
Not anymore George . his R loan clause agreement does not exist anymore for this season and beyond ( from what I hear from numerous sources )


8.) 20 Jul 2024 14:53:10
OP you contradict yourself yet AGAIN . your critique of Wober is nowt to what Gnonto did last season

Yet you openly welcomed the rebellious transfer requesting AWOL refusing to play be AVAILABLE Gnonto back into team.

Plus you even wanted 70 % effort Gnonto to play instead of uber loyal forever 120% er DJ . who was our 2nd top scorer fgs

Weird. very ?.


9.) 20 Jul 2024 15:16:52
OB No, it's only applicable to those players with the loan clause in their contracts upon R from the EPL. I see Baz claims in Wober case it's been extinguished. Not so sure. Wober ought to knuckle down and force his way into the side via good form.


10.) 20 Jul 2024 15:31:03
Apparently he's spoke to DF and wants to stay, OP. Also heard unverified rumours that he had issues with Cooper, which won't be a problem anymore.


11.) 20 Jul 2024 16:36:21
George I know they have to have a loan clause but if they did as I said and wanted to go would we have to let them leave.


12.) 20 Jul 2024 17:01:40
No contradiction Baz as Willy requested to leave but didn’t or couldn’t.
Wöber left!
The rest of what you are waffling on about is just you making things up again.

However if what Dill says is true and Wöber gives 110% and proves to the fans he is fighting for his team and the club then in my mind there is a way back for the player.
Only I’ll believe that when I see it as it only rumours for now.


13.) 20 Jul 2024 17:26:49
100% facts OP.


14.) 20 Jul 2024 20:32:57
100% Garbage Baz.


 

 

19 Jul 2024 08:42:55
According to sky we have now had 18 players leave, sold, loan, released.
That is some turnover and a shedload of savings on wages.
We have had 3 come to us and 2 should be 1st team regulars maybe just maybe there are a couple more in the pipeline to come, Bogle for one I hope, fingers crossed ?.

Oldbri

1.) 19 Jul 2024 09:07:31
At first glance 18 sounds like a shocking number, however, the majority were dead wood or players who clearly had no passion to play for the mighty Leeds. I'm more than happy to get rid of those 18 (and maybe a few more) and then bring in a handful of decent players who strengthen the squad, but more importantly want to be part of the journey.

I still think it shows good business sense by the 49ners but I'll hold my final judgement until the end of the transfer window.


2.) 19 Jul 2024 09:30:07
If crew and gnonto go we will need to splash some serious cash to replace them otherwise we will not be as competitive as last year.
It is imperative we get some creativity and goals in.


3.) 19 Jul 2024 11:19:18
I fully agree danny.


4.) 19 Jul 2024 12:19:12
The big problem/ fear is that CS stuff will rumble onto last week / last day even. it must not!

SF49ers need to show some balls and inform CS and hjs agent . that any sale needs to happen in next 3 weeks or there will be no sale agreement by Leeds United for this
season.


5.) 19 Jul 2024 13:15:01
2 weeks baz. After that No one at all leaving. Regardless of dosh.


6.) 19 Jul 2024 13:26:00
The Leeds hierarchy, Cree and his agent probably already have agreements and assurances that he doesn’t want to leave and they don’t won’t to sell him.
If that’s true they have no obligation to announce that and can leave all the speculation and blah blah to the journalists and fans like you Baz.


7.) 19 Jul 2024 13:50:34
Agreed Aus .2 weeks max

Something on the lines of a Mr Bloom at Brighton . minimum price. then NO SALE

A tad naive OP. I would not trust any verbal ' assurances " from Cre agent . SF549ers hold the power on this.


8.) 19 Jul 2024 14:34:46
If you look at it logically there are no signs that Summerville will be leaving. Cree himself has stated recently he’s very happy at the club. Likewise the owners selling Archie Gray was a very bitter pill to swallow for the fans, they would not do that twice and make themselves a hate target from the fans. Unless they bring in someone better than Summerville which is very unlikely with the amount they would have to spend.


9.) 19 Jul 2024 15:02:49
It would be intriguing if you get this one right OP.

15% chance.


10.) 19 Jul 2024 15:50:40
It’s getting close Baz for you to make one of your famous constantly changing predictions of, where Leeds will finish this season and don’t be shy to make a relegation prediction……. again! or was it 12th or maybe 6th or god knows what.


11.) 19 Jul 2024 16:54:08
It was definitively 6th at end of window OP as you well know

which unsurprisingly was still far closer in accuracy than your Champions Elect 1st ?

And especially for you OP

September 1st end of window is when I shall give it again.


 

 

18 Jul 2024 14:04:15
I do wish these journalists would piss off reporting who Leeds are interested in soon as one is mentioned every other team and there grandmas jump in and as we always seem to take an age to agree terms we inevitably miss out the latest is Bogle he would be an excellent signing but I only hope we actually get him and not miss out to save a couple of quid.

18 Jul 2024 11:38:37
Why are we considering another loan for raz stick out for a sale we need the cash as well as saving wages discuss a suitable amount and get shut of the k###head someone will buy him at the right price we might not get full money but get what we can and invest in players that want to be at Leeds.

Oldbri

1.) 18 Jul 2024 12:57:30
Agreed Oldbri . said as much yesterday.


2.) 18 Jul 2024 13:47:41
Christenson, IMO. worst RB we ever had, just get shot.


3.) 18 Jul 2024 14:10:07
Christopher. worst ever hmm?
This guy is a Danish international playing in Seria A for Roma last season

Not sure the likes of Jason Crowe, Neil Aspin etc etc reached those heights ?

Dont forget Chris beginning of last season you were lambasting as pony / carp ny main man DJ . and then he went onto be our 2nd top goalscorer and assist maker?




last season.


4.) 18 Jul 2024 19:43:20
Don't forget last season I was also trumping a certain Mr Smozducs who made Roadrunner look like a flop again Bazinald .

Granted razzy is am international, but last season in Roma wasn't good neither, He's had issues with José also .

James fell off a cliff when it was needed most Baz last season, and Farke felt same by dropping him

Smozdics uruined all over your luv child Baz ?.


5.) 18 Jul 2024 20:33:04
Sammi had a great season ?. as did Dan James . Great stats both of them

DJ picked up couple of injuries rather than " dropped " in 2024 Chrissy . for example he was injured not in squad of the infamous QPR 4 vs Leeds 0 where Leeds " fell off a cliff "

And DJ was just about the only good Leeds United player in play off final Chrissy.

Nice try Chrissy in bluffing ?.


6.) 18 Jul 2024 20:47:17
Chalk and cheese comparison Baz let's be honest
Smozdics probably player of season in champo

I will agree that when Dan came on in final he did give it a proper go unlike a few of his teammates,

No bluffing Baz, Farke dropped him, as in final, he didn't make starting.11, so nice try Baz ( back at yourself ?)


7.) 18 Jul 2024 21:29:12
DJ is better than Gnonto and shouldn't have been placed behind him in the pecking order.

DJ also did one of the goals of the season Vs Hull and the open goal. Not to mention his speed is what breaks past their defenders, something sorely lacking up front.
Doubly so because we went from shooting to trying to dribble the goal into the net.


8.) 18 Jul 2024 21:53:31
Absolutely MOTagain . DJ ahead of Gnonto all day long.

Gnonto, CS and a few others checked out when it really mattered

Chrissy . an unwise decision made by choker Farke to not start DJ in play off final ( so nice try . but that dear Chrissie be check mate )


9.) 18 Jul 2024 21:56:32
Interestingly enough, when Dan James started the game (28) he had 12 goals and 5 assists. When he was used as a sub (12) he only had 1 goal and 2 assists.

Seems to be better when he starts, which is a little bit counterintuitive as you'd think his pace would cause more problems later in games with tired opposition legs.

Found that interesting.


10.) 18 Jul 2024 22:27:17
Not really Dill because he likely only came on as a 80th minute substitute. Not long to impress.


11.) 18 Jul 2024 23:20:38
What Corkster said.


12.) 19 Jul 2024 00:18:49
He had a goal involvement every 134 mins as a starter.

As a sub he had a GI every 87 mins.

I stand corrected. He averaged better returns as a sub.


13.) 19 Jul 2024 00:30:52
With the sheer volume of 1970s Leeds references, I'd hazard a guess at anywhere between 64 and 74.

Am I close, Baz?


14.) 19 Jul 2024 01:25:49
Well deduced Sherlock Dill .


15.) 19 Jul 2024 02:47:13
That’s a 10 yr gap Sherlock dill. Even Porgie could have got that close. Try a 3 yr gap.


16.) 19 Jul 2024 05:26:13
Hmmm ? 66, 67 or 68 would be my guess.


17.) 19 Jul 2024 07:55:39
I’d go 69,70, 71.


18.) 19 Jul 2024 11:29:25
62.or 63, like me.


19.) 19 Jul 2024 11:34:28
Baz been quiet since these comments dropped ?.


20.) 19 Jul 2024 12:03:58
I was just going to say same Dill?.


21.) 19 Jul 2024 12:23:45
All good Dill.
