Us and Everton looking at bringing in Marcelo from Madrid? Not sure how seriously to take this one, can't believe it has any legs but £5m and a 2yr contract will supposedly get it done. Reports did say we where after a LB that hadn't been mentioned.

Gummie

1.) 12 Jun 2021 17:03:43
Can't imagine his wages would align with our pay structure.
Don't want something like that affecting team cohesion.


2.) 12 Jun 2021 17:24:18
He would def need to take a huge pay cut or Madrid pay a heft percentage towards. If we got him and got him playing like we all know he can he would be a fantastic signing, just don't see it.


3.) 12 Jun 2021 22:24:49
33 yrs old as well which seems outside the age of our usual recruits.


4.) 13 Jun 2021 00:31:53
Was the best LWB in the world a couple of years ago. 33 or not if we can get him playing again he would be a huge improvement on what we have.


5.) 13 Jun 2021 10:24:40
Yes but can a 33 Yr old cope with Bielsaball?


6.) 13 Jun 2021 12:25:13
Pabs did for two seasons quite well!? And actually showed in his final game that he was still capable (in fact more than capable) . Even MB conceded that he should’ve perhaps had more game time?


 

 

08 Jun 2021 14:27:25
Casey looks to be on his way out. Wanted by Blackpool on a perm and we are ok with him leaving, seems Cresswell is preferred long term.

Gummie

 

 

03 Jun 2021 02:04:22
Just a little update on Nandez, read something earlier today suggesting that that signing is potentially all but done (thats contract and fee) with us just oking the fee and sorting the finances before completing the signing. Story from an Italian tabloid, don't know how reliable it is.

Gummie

1.) 03 Jun 2021 13:57:56
Well the player has a release fee so that would be easy enough but of course we are after a discount.


2.) 03 Jun 2021 17:21:30
I think the release is £31m and we are looking around the £25m mark though some reports have said £18m (think there is too much interest for him to go that cheap) .


 

 

11 May 2021 18:08:41
Reports out of Germany that we have made a £17m offer for Stuttgarts Croatian LB Borna Sosa (23) . Attack minded, 10 assists in 24 this year.

Gummie

1.) 12 May 2021 10:00:55
Again.


2.) 12 May 2021 19:40:51
Martyn The offer if we truly made one is probably not again. Looks like the lad can play.


3.) 13 May 2021 01:06:19
It's supposedly come straight from his agent, could just be drumming up interest for his player though.


 

 

11 Apr 2021 03:05:40
Reports out of Argentina that Bielsa is considering signing a new 2 year deal. First great news, second if true, if he is willing to sign for 2 years rather than his normal 1, it suggests that whatever the plan is behind the scenes it has him really excited.

Gummie

1.) 11 Apr 2021 07:21:58
Incredible news 👏😍😍.


2.) 12 Apr 2021 08:40:21
Not going to say it 🤭.


3.) 18 Apr 2021 11:16:35
Bielsa himself has quoted its fake news.

Arsenal have offered Nketia around to us and a few others for £20m. If we've the money to spare after key signings it could be a great pickup. Quick, young, can finish but most importantly he knows the squad, knows the manager and knows what's expected in training.

Gummie

1.) 05 Jun 2021 22:30:03
But why don't Arsenal want him?


2.) 05 Jun 2021 22:37:03
Would take him but for half that amount. I'm sure for 20 mill we could do bettet.


3.) 06 Jun 2021 00:15:03
Gummie Was hoping for this and posted about it a few weeks ago. Perfect substitute and cover player. Price needs to come down to £15m then it's a good deal all round.


4.) 06 Jun 2021 00:25:12
Seen some big names linked to them Alf, think they are trying to clear out some fringe players to fill the coffers.
Dunno Canada, u23 international, the fact he counts towards that British quota, already scoring in the prem and he offers something different to Paddy and Rodrigo. It's a luxury signing but I don't think he's massively overvalued at that.


5.) 06 Jun 2021 01:16:45
And injury prone.


6.) 06 Jun 2021 01:17:57
Gummie and Canada -

Eddie didn't impress or really fit in and adapt playing for Leeds in the Championship, what on earth makes you think he would impress playing at an even higher level in the EPL for Leeds!

He simply wouldn't, and as Alf alludes why do Arsenal want rid of Eddie? : looking at his stats would be a first reason he has managed to play only 55 league games in 5 seasons since 2017 scoring just 8 goals! Mediocre.

Big NO THANKS. Need much better.


7.) 06 Jun 2021 02:39:26
Pick up for about $16 mill. Good for last 20 min sub. Worth a punt.


8.) 06 Jun 2021 06:41:36
Baz He requires significant nurturing but could be a highly effective sub coming on late in matches. He offers a different skillset than Paddy and offers a genuine goal threat as poacher. Would you really put it past Bub not to be able to advance him? He's still young.


9.) 06 Jun 2021 07:36:53
Good player but I don’t think Bielsa could see his potential as a Leeds forward. Think that’s where the conversation ends.


10.) 06 Jun 2021 09:19:39
Georgey is spending near £20 million on someone to ' come on late in matches ' as you put it good use of transfer funds. In a word NO.

Is he really a genuine goal threat? . His stats don't suggest he is. Leeds appearances 17 league games 3 league goals in the Championship with Leeds dominating matches.

Arsenal fans and Arteta simply don't rate Eddie and he has been overlooked throughout the second half of the season and contributed just 2 goals all season.

He generally doesn't have the technical ability nor strength to hold the ball up well, he certainly isn't that good at pressing, his goalscoring prowess remains negligible certainly at this EPL level. We need much better and certainly much better for the money the gooners want.

My prediction Eddie will join newly promoted Watford but really is a top half Championship level standard player.


11.) 06 Jun 2021 10:44:23
He proved it while he was with us, that he is a great option for a slight tweak in tactics. Changes the front line immediately, and causes head aches for an already tired back four. I’d take him at 20mill. He will be worth twice that in two years.


12.) 06 Jun 2021 10:44:39
How manybof those Leeds appearances were 10 min substitute ones?


13.) 06 Jun 2021 13:46:11
Canada - that's the point!

Never felt that Bielsa trusted Eddie to be more than a 10 minute sub :

at £20 million we need so much more from a striker!

one that can play and effect the entire 90 minutes if needs be, if Bamford was injured etc.


14.) 06 Jun 2021 14:41:38
Why did Bielsa treat him as a 10 min sub Baz?
Because Bamford was scoring that's why. Plus Eddie never got 100% Leeds fit due to where he started from and injuries.
So if you are looking to replace Bam with better then yes, we need someone special (would cost a lot more than 20 mill) . If we want someone to come on and use their guile and pace on a defence that Bamford has run ragged all game them the 10 mill I suggest is OK and Nketiah could be the answer.
Just look at how much he improved at Leeds. Enough to recall him and put him in their first team. He's young enough to become a great striker.


15.) 06 Jun 2021 17:22:25
A Bub fit Eddie, would be a massive bonus to us. Just as he got up to speed, they took him back!


16.) 06 Jun 2021 19:56:42
What 🇨🇦 said.
Baz This is why I'd only want us to spend in between £13m and £15m for him. I accept £20m for a substitute is prohibitive. Eddie has potential.


 

 

09 May 2021 00:51:39
After the players that came back today, correct me if I'm wrong, but is this the first time this season we have had our full strength starting 11 available? I know a few didn't start but it would mean we could see our best 11 next game. Puts into perspective how good a season we have had when it's last 3 games before we might get to see our strongest line up.

Gummie

1.) 09 May 2021 08:02:02
Was that the first time this season that the big four summer signings have actually been on the pitch at the same time?
Will certainly be interesting to see what Bielsa considers our strongest lineup to be!
Still no Forshaw though!


2.) 09 May 2021 16:57:25
I’m pretty sure it was against Everton and palace we had all 4 available.


 

 

08 Apr 2021 23:16:21
We are looking at bringing in Aguero?!?! Surely that's a wind up right?
32, injury prone but regardless that would be a literal game changer.

Gummie

 

 

30 Mar 2021 10:19:36
Just seen that Brazilian wonderkid Gabriel Menino is potentially available this summer for £15m. Lots of top clubs tracking him but at 20 the offer of first team football might give us a chance if we went in. Described as the Brazilian Yaya Toure he can play as a specialist DM (Would make George happy) but also RB and CB, so nice and versatile.

Gummie

1.) 30 Mar 2021 18:32:55
I’m not even gonner say it gummie.


2.) 30 Mar 2021 18:33:32

4.) 30 Mar 2021 19:43:38
I have that problem sometimes Martyn.


5.) 30 Mar 2021 23:11:36
Age related alf.


 

 

11 Mar 2021 02:29:24
Raphael Varane has told Real he want to leave in the summer and move to the prem. Obviously would want champ league football and will have a big wage and price tag but could be cut price due to the c.v. and would go a huge way to sorting our back line (can also play RB and DM which would make Marcelo happy) . If we really do have another £100m to spend in the summer and we want to push for Europe it could be the perfect first signing (even if it sets us back £50m or so)

Gummie

{Ed077's Note - you aren't serious right?


1.) 11 Mar 2021 04:20:03
Gumbo The last Raphael we tried to sign didn't work out too well. I'm sure he'll end up wrong side of Pennines.

Ed077 Ask Gumbo if Kylie fancies Leeds instead of Paris. No contest.


2.) 11 Mar 2021 19:40:42
Minogue?


3.) 12 Mar 2021 02:39:46
I am Ed. 12 months ago it would have been a ridiculous suggestion but now with everything going on? Look at the facts, he wants to leave, they are (allegedly) hard up for cash. He wants to play prem (only 20 teams to choose from) , how many can afford him right now? 7-8 teams? With our recent investment we are in a better position than most. Of those teams how many are willing to spend that much on a CB? United are chasing a GK, CM and RW. City finally have have a settled back 4 and our looking more for their next Aguero. Chelsea are looking at forwards too. Only really Pool in need of a CB but will they need one once Virgil et al are back from injury?
Outside of those I genuinely believe we can compete with anyone in the league over signings. The fact that Rodriguez joined Everton shows that right manager, right project, it can be done.
Also the rumours of Douglas Costa and Vazquez suggest we are willing to pay big wages to bring in elite players.

{Ed077's Note - Douglas Costa and Vazquez are levels behind Varane and his pay packet/wage demands as well as transfer fee. James Rodriguez joined Ancelloti's team more so than Everton FC. I dont see that kind of relation between Varane and Bielsa.

Frankly you guys seem to be deluded about Leeds and where they stand right now. And FFP does exist you know.}

Sounds like it's done, 1 year scholarship until he's 17 then a 3 year development contract. Surprised, thought we had some real depth already with highly rated young keepers, wonder if it's a sign one of them is going out on loan.

Would be worth it as we could probably still sell him at a profit even if it didn't work out but if we aren't looking then hopefully it's because we have our budget tied up with other targets that Orta/ Bielsa feel will improve the squad more. That or Bielsa has seen something he doesn't like after looking at his stats/ vids of him, just because someone is good it doesn't mean they fit what you need.

Awake and sat up in hospital so great news. Really hope it's not a Muamba situation and that he can make it back on a football pitch some time soon. Most important thing is that he's pulled through for now and that he gets his health back.

More positions on the pitch than you can have on the bench Leo so you need to have a couple of versatile guys in the squad. Not many of them are top players in any one position. These guys are only cover for specialist players when you're in a bind and don't have anyone fit in a position available, we can't afford to pay £150k a week for a utility player like a Pool or a City can so competent isn't that bad (better than playing a specialist player out of position anyway) .
Also yes he had some bad games, in his first top flight season, but also had some very good ones.

Alioski shouldn't be our starting LB next year, we need better, however I would 100% keep Alioski. His versatility makes him a great squad player from the bench and if someone new comes in you know he can come on and play competently if they pick up an injury.
