Although I can see Leeds wanting to sort the Saiz situation quickly, I'm sure they won't be happy at the way in which this has been handled on the Spanish side. All of the leaks and information appear to be coming from Spain, possibly in a way to force the issue.

We are about to go into a crucial period of games for the club this year and ones where Samu would definitely have featured in some way. I also would like to see Samu getting an Elland Road send off rather than disappearing overnight! Glad we have Bielsa at the helm to handle this calmly, but it needs to be dealt with quickly!

Don't underestimate his loss, either starting or from the bench Samu is a skillful player who occupies the minds and bodies of opposing teams. Perhaps the Izzy Brown deal makes a lot more sense now!

I just hope that if he does go then Radz is going to sell rather than loan to sell.

If he doesn't want to be here let him go. Only want people committed to the badge.

It will def put Izzy before Saiz on the teamsheet I think.

Looks like Saiz is on his way back to Spain.

I wonder how much we will get for him.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Dec 2018 17:43:35
Tory I'm sure with a transfer of this nature, the fee shall be "undisclosed" but I believe it won't exceed £3.5m.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Dec 2018 18:02:01
It’s bad news, but if the lad is unhappy over here, then he should be allowed to go. Let’s just get as much as we can for him, and get a suitable replacement. Was nice while we had him.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Dec 2018 19:35:45
It’s a shame, I like Samu, but Not sure Bielsas regime Matches his approach to the game or his temperament! It’s a good move for him, they are 8th in the league and he came to us from a second division club. The timings not good! Can’t believe that some people at the club haven’t known for a bit, so hope that we have been planning for a life without him! I’d make the most of him in the December games and hope he puts on a farewell show for us.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Dec 2018 19:49:34
Explains his dip in form, let's hope we don't sell on the cheap.

Let him go, send all the cash to Leicester for Harvey Barnes :)

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Dec 2018 22:15:04
leavng for Spain will reduce the options. Less demand means a lower price. Family should slways come first. Sad to see him go but we will survive.

Would of thought bit more than that George $7 mill I reckon. English.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Dec 2018 00:33:52
Yes please to Harvey Barnes, but he would cost us much more than £3.5 million Staffordshire!

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Dec 2018 07:26:13
£5-6m at a guess. Hopefully more

He’s not playing

Funds the additional winger we need

We have cover

It’s take the money for me if he’s not going to give 100%.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Dec 2018 11:09:16
Mezzer, we should be going for at least £6M, maybe even 9! ! Test them out, and see how badly they want him.

Phil hay saying Bielsa happy with squad and doesn't want to sign anybody. I get jan window can be over priced and an act of desperation but we def need a goalie and striker. Izzy will fit in and supply the assists but roofe needs a genuine striker to push him.

Not sure how we have no money for transfers either. We did waste 10 mill of it but we have sold a lot more than that and have additional investors and sponsors.

We spent a fair bit on youth but not that much.
We are doing well and I honestly believe Izzy will prob be enough to see us promoted.

But radz and Bielsa give me the jitters a bit. More from their business understanding than management skills. Bielsa is a brilliant coach but not sure he gets how tough promotion is yet.

We will get a goalie and if Saiz goes, I think it’ll be more likely we bring someone else in. I think in Bielsa we have somone who deals with each obstacle in a very calm and professional way. Aus, I think he has made a lot of comments about how important and difficult the December period is. Given how well he has coped with what has been thrown at him so far, he deserves a bit of trust. Let’s see how he does, up until now it’s been good!

Detect a hint of sarcasm there AL? He has a lot of contacts at leeds and seems to get it right more often than not.

11 Dec 2018 20:25:20
I must admit Hay knows his stuff. Unfortunately he’s probably right on this one.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Dec 2018 14:22:04
It was a bit sarcastic yes, but he seems, a lot of the time, to go with what he thinks people want to hear but in the main he's not far off with what he says.

Kieren Westwood set to join on a free from Sheff Wed and ease the goalie situation.

Well we need one, decent goalie on his day. He is not getting any game time so good move all round.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Dec 2018 10:58:20
I'll have some of that. Always rated him so to get him on a freebie would be good. Only stumbling block is his wages. Apparently one of the highest paid at the wendies.

Bit of a gap and 4 in a row which is very impressive.
Nice to get a penalty but feel roofe should have had 4, missed 2 sitters.

I agree Shadwell, I think that is why Roofe almost fought Hernadez to take the penalty! He was keen to make his figures look better.

When you look at this group of payers, only one key area to improve on that would make an enormous difference to our ability to close out games. Strike rate of goals from opportunities. We should have got 1/ 2 goals early in that game yesterday. If we can score more, the dynamic of the game changes and we don’t have so many scary moments in the last 10 minutes. Our fitness, hard work and team spirit is still pulling us through, but find a way of scoring more and we will be the finished product.

Agree1 0Disagree

09 Dec 2018 12:28:12
Agree Spanish. We look unstoppable in the first two thirds but as soon as we get near goal it starts to unravel. It's not that we play badly. It's just that we do not seem to have a killer touch. Our decision making seems to fail us. Pass when we should shoot etc. I feel maybe a little greedy. We are second and playing with a patched up team (maybe were getting spoiled) but I look at some of the draws and think "if only".

Agree2 0Disagree

09 Dec 2018 23:23:49
You’re right, all of you. But if we had that clinical edge in the final third, we’d be winning the champions league. But we are still fighting our way out of the second tier of English football, on a budget. It’s not going to all click at once, but we are getting there! Plus grinding out a result below par like yesterday is a massive positive.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Dec 2018 02:35:32
I'll take a striker that converts 2 chances from 4 any day of the week.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Dec 2018 08:43:01
Bright, honestly not looking beyond the Championship, I think we might need a few more tweaks before the champions league beckons. Just looking at what we need to do to improve this year and ease the worrying! Doesn’t even need to be a new player, because we have brown and Bamford to play with as well. I want us to nail promotion this year, the opportunity is there and we have worked so hard to get it. I’m sure the comments about scoring more are probably what bielsa would say himself.

Agree0 0Disagree

10 Dec 2018 14:11:26
This is why we need a fit Bamford, he will be much more clinical I feel.

Agree1 0Disagree

10 Dec 2018 15:41:29
Alf, certainly good to have him fit and breathing down Roofes neck, particularly if what Wex is saying is true and he is earning double what Roofe is earning!

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Dec 2018 09:18:26
Yes think Roofe should score more but the way we play the attacking midfielders should be as well. Saiz Alioski should have more to their name as well. I am sure the goals will come and no doubt Bielsa will be working on that every training session. The ability is there but we need some one to flip the switch.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Dec 2018 02:28:47
Just watched Brom v villa and I wonder if Rodriguez will get stick for hand using like roofe. Great draw result for us though and if can win tonight be a nice gap opening.

I really think villa getting Smith in is impressive, he seems a very good manager and I think villa will be top 2, they do concede a few goals but very impressive forward line with bollasi, Abraham, el hadsi? Their wide men just run at defenses and can go past players, cross and hit the target. Unfortunately alioski can't do any of that, but he try's hard.

I hope bielsa just saying the right things re Jan investing and players not needed, hope rads/ Orta have a small list as we do need 2-3 players. Think roofe done well with 8 goals, but most strikers in this team would hit a few, top scorers in this league now on 14 and feel we still need a forward, hope Bamford can, but not convinced with him. Will Izzy make the bench.

Robbie Gotts and Callum Nicell promoted to first team training. Good move by Bielsa.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

06 Dec 2018 14:51:48
Robbie was a good bet, great little player, real battler, full of energy. Not the tallest but goes like the Duracell bunny!

Callum, is a more interesting move. When you go to the under 23d and watch and listen, you can pick up a fair idea of who is on the up and who isn’t quite impressing. Callum is definitely in the former group and as such has leapfrogged a few others . Although midfield, he has been used across the back, so is another versatile pick.

These moves are the flip sides of the bad injury news, opportunities for lads to shine and prosper. If you were a young kid and Leeds wanted you, it’s these kind of moves that make the club an attractive prospect.
