Marsch said after the game tonight that he and Orta etc will be having a further discussion with Radz to nail down exactly who they still want to bring in, with the intention that those 2 or 3 will be brought in very quickly - hopefully this week.

3Ms. McAtee, Max, Martin Merrier.


2.) 01 Aug 2022 07:43:38
3. A very specific number, and a clear sign of intent. Should be sufficient to keep everyone happy!
And those 3 would be perfect George!

Missing a keeper.

?? Meslier begins with M.


5.) 01 Aug 2022 12:56:58
The young lad as #2 to Meslier did very well the other day when he played. Maybe they’ve decided that those two youngsters are good enough to fill the GK spots?


6.) 01 Aug 2022 19:27:20
The more 'M's the Merrier eh George?

LUFC Fanzone have poured cold water on Quinone rumour, having being informed by a ‘source close to the player’ that Leeds haven’t been in touch, and definitely no deal agreed.

Cluey Was it tonic water they poured?


2.) 30 Jul 2022 20:06:59
Funny you should say that George…. but it may have been a tonic to Strasbourg in their alleged pursuit of the lad, though should they actually be celebrating the ‘news’, it’d be more likely with a long cold Kronenbourg ?.


3.) 31 Jul 2022 08:10:00
Guess it could be said this rumour looks a spirited effort, but it may just have hit the rocks.

CDK played the first half of Brugge’s friendly v Utrecht tonight. Previously he was kept out of training because a transfer could have been imminent. He’s also expected to play in the Belgian Super Cup at the weekend, which suggests Brugge do not feel AC Milan’s offer is close to acceptable. It therefore, perhaps, gives a little renewed hope that he could yet come to Leeds.

He was replaced at halftime by Ferran Jutgla, who they signed from Barcelona last month - and who perhaps might have been the only one of that club’s players I’d have felt happy with us taking as a makeweight in the Raphinha deal. Young Jutgla scored a brace in the second half.

Nice said to be taking an interest in Meslier, having sold their first choice keeper, Walter Benitez to PSV. Nice already have a promising young Polish keeper in their squad - 6ft 6 22-year old Marcin Bulka. They’ve just signed him permanently from PSG following a loan from. them last season, during which he played 1 league game and in their 5-game run the the final of the Coupe de France - having been the hero for them in the Round of 16, saving 2 penalties in a shootout against parent club PSG.

No chance of us letting him go.

With the signing of Citeh’s Romeo Lavia by Southampton now confirmed, do we perhaps have an answer to the question as to why the £42m rising to £45m fee agreed for KP was said by the Club to be worth between £50-55m to us?

Southampton are reported to have agreed a fee of £10.5m (rising to £14m with add-ons) for Lavia. Rumours are that Bayer Leverkusen are expected to shell out a similar fee to sign young Citeh winger Sam Edozie.

Could it be that Citeh would have wanted a similar fee for Darko Gyabi but it was agreed that he could come to us for just £5m, given the KP transfer?

Obviously just idle speculation as although the figures would ‘add up’, that doesn’t necessarily mean the facts tally.

Clueless

1.) 06 Jul 2022 16:10:34
Is Gyabi considered as a first team squad player or under 23’s?
Just asking as I’ve no idea.


2.) 06 Jul 2022 16:42:39
Suggestions are that he may get first team opportunities this season. Expected to be in the squad for Oz, so it’ll be interesting to see how many minutes he gets in those friendlies, and how he performs. Would seem likely that initially this season he’ll get more game time with the u21s, as they’re now called.

It is possible that Citeh had intended to keep him for another season at least (as last season was his first with their u23) , then review progress and potentially let him move on for £10m+, but let him go for £5m to us this summer as KP was going the other way.


3.) 06 Jul 2022 17:18:39
Primarily a youth player for this season. Sweatz pal ?.

Apparently Jamie Redknapp has told 90 Minutes that young Archie Gray is his Prem ‘player to watch’ this season - saying he’s the best young midfielder he’s seen in years.

1.) 10 Aug 2022 21:03:54
Love this. Seems Marschbis a big fan, too, so he's likely going to get first team minutes off the bench this season.

For those saying everything had gone quiet on the stadium plans, the square ball interview with Angus Kinnear provided an update.

They’ve been busy last season working with architects etc to draw up plans and this year will be finalising work on financing the project and commencing the planning process with Leeds City Council. Currently he expects building work to commence in 2024/ 25 and to take around 2 years to complete.

Clueless

1.) 08 Aug 2022 05:57:01
Radz actually mentioned it in his last interview too.
£100mill investment confirmed, expanding capacity to 55k, generating an annual stadium revenue of £255million, which will put us in the top 8 in the U. K. with regard to revenue creation. A smart move, which will set our stall out for continued future growth!


2.) 08 Aug 2022 07:01:17
Let's hope that stadium revenue isn't based on just ticket prices as for 55000 fans that would mean it will be £244 per ticket. Whatever Kinnear has been sprinkling on his cornflakes, I want some!


3.) 08 Aug 2022 11:33:51
Brighty - I think Radz meant that the rise in stadium revenue due to an increase in capacity to 55,000 would help bring TOTAL annual revenue above £250m.

Alf - hopefully that clarification helps re your point on ticket prices. Kinnear said later in his interview that the intention was that ticket prices would remain around the same level for normal fans, assisted by an increase in corporate hospitality facilities made available within the new West Stand.


4.) 08 Aug 2022 14:54:50
Indeed Clu. either that or the Leeds board doing their usual trick of blowing smoke up our backsides with some nonsense propaganda.


5.) 08 Aug 2022 16:54:02
Ah, ok Clue, must have misread it, but that makes miles more sense!


6.) 08 Aug 2022 18:22:20
Absolutely Alf, Kinnear is a Yes man and a professional blower of smoke up the areshole. I believe little in what he says.

Been confirmed Lewis Bate is being loaned out to Oxford Utd for the season, to get first team minutes. That club is expected to really push for promotion this season, so hopefully it should be a positive experience for the lad. It’ll be interesting to see whether he’s pitched straight into the action with a start this weekend v Cambridge Utd, as the Us seek to bounce back from narrow defeat in their season opener at Derby. May be more likely to be eased in from the bench.

Clueless

1.) 04 Aug 2022 12:36:09
Obviously no option for Oxford to buy, and there is a recall clause, should that be deemed appropriate in January.


2.) 04 Aug 2022 13:10:29
A question for Clu and anyone else who might know

Is there a January recall clause available on Cresswell?
because a diehard Millwall supporter ( not Berm this time ?) is saying 100% there is no recall clause on Cresswell ??

P. S. Who is playing LB against Wolves?
Struick? Hjelde? Uncle Victor himself? ?.


3.) 04 Aug 2022 14:02:07
Recall
And struik

4.) 04 Aug 2022 14:11:12
Based on pre season it’ll be Strujk . Recall clauses I think are quite rare so I don’t think we have one for creswell, I never read that at the time there was one.


5.) 04 Aug 2022 14:30:34
Hope he has a good season and gets plenty of minutes. Good luck to him.

According to the YEP, rehab for Mateusz Bogusz is progressing well, with him expected to be training normally from around the beginning of next month. He’s been fully involved in team briefings etc, just been training separately in line with rehab requirements. Seems he will be around when the window closes, so Marsch will be able to have a good look at how he fits with his tactics etc before deciding making any decisions on his future. Bogusz said the decision is up to the Club, so it seems he’s open to staying. Apparently there’s been quite a bit of interest in him, from Spain and elsewhere.

Orta clearly rated Bogusz highly when he was brought in (and I remember Klich absolutely raved about his ability in training) but I kind of suspect the lad may have had a slight misunderstanding with Bielsa over an early ‘discussion’ of whether Bielsa felt he could use him in his squad - leading to his remaining away on loan periods until now.

From what I saw of the lad in the u23s, I believe Bogusz has the attributes to do well in Marsch’s system if he is fully recovered from his injury. He likes to get stuck in, is technically adept and has an absolutely cracking shot on him. However, time will tell.

Clueless

1.) 01 Aug 2022 20:13:33
Cluey Can see Bogusz making the bench before WC break. Time to say thank you ? to the other Mateusz as he searches for first team football.


2.) 02 Aug 2022 07:05:17
Pleased that it looks as tho the lad is going to get a chance, as he did look like there was something special there!

It’s perhaps not surprising that Joao Pedro hasn’t lived up to whatever hype there was about him. He moved to Watford from Fluminese in Brazil only a few months after turning 18, having been signed by Nigel Pearson, and just before CV19 caused the suspension of football, and lockdown in a totally new country can’t have been easy for a young lad. Pearson was sacked just before the end of the recommenced season and in the following 2 seasons he’s been managed/ coached by Vladimir Ivic, Xisco Munoz, Claudio Ranieri and Roy Hodgson. So overall his living/ training/ playing environment since moving from Brazil has probably not helped to develop his game.

George - not sure on what basis you’d conclude that AM would be Sarr’s best position, as according to Transfermarkt he’s only started at AM once.

As Dillinger says, he is inconsistent, but to be fair to the lad, as the start of his fourth season at Watford, he’s now under his 8th ‘permanent’ manager at that club, and there were also two short periods of caretaker management. He was only 21 when he joined them, and such constant change of management/ coaching won’t have helped his development and certainly isn’t conducive to consistent performance. The rumours of us signing him way be completely baseless, but wherever he ends up next, under the right guidance he could develop into really decent player.

Dillinger - while the itk local journos seem to be feeling there is very little in the offing at the moment, with GK likely next one in, it is always possible that Orta is keeping his cards so close to his chest on the CF and LB front that even these journos are being kept in the dark as to what he’s currently up to - things may or may not be closer than Beren Cross and others currently believe.

OP - Archie’s only just turned 16. He and his family will know that, if all goes to plan, by the time he’s 21 we’ll be playing at a 55/ 60,000-seater Elland Road stadium and in a very good position financially to challenge for Europe - and promising players at currently so-called elite clubs may be queuing up to sign for us, so they too can savour the support from our white, blue and yellow wall of sound.

The lad’s certainly a good prospect - good on the ball and has decent pace. With him, Cressy, Pascal and Hjelde, we would seem to be well stocked with promising young centre backs.

George - there are many folk, Wolves fans in particular, who would question whether Coady would be a genuine upgrade for us. The lad moved to Wolves as a CDM, and was subsequently converted into a CB within their long-standing three at the back formation. In the middle of the 2020/ 21 season when they tried to change to a back 4, Coady was apparently found to struggle in 1v1 situations so they ended up playing their full backs narrower to help support the CBs, before reverting to 3 at the back again.

It is apparently enduring concerns about him playing in a back 4 (which Lage wants to use this season) that mean Wolves are content to sell him. With Marsch usually playing 4 at the back and with full back used to provide width up the pitch, we don’t seem to be set up in a way to get the best out of Coady as a CB.
