Some Spanish outlets reporting jr firpo from Barcelona as a possibility for our left back and can play left sided centre back.

I see Cunha has liked a comment on his Instagram stating Leeds Bound!
Might be absolutely nowt like De Paul last summer but he’d be a great asset if we got him. Following him on socials he seems a likeable guy, not vain and flashy like benrahma etc. Could be a great fit.

Let's hope. He looks like a good signing.


2.) 08 Jun 2021 17:20:21
Absolutely Alf, can play anywhere across the front 4 and Brazilian to help keep Rapha happy.

Transfermarkt reporting we are in for Hertha Berlin’s Brazilian striker Cunha.

We've still got a Kun on the books.

What about a punt on iliax Moriba from Barca? 18yr old has played for their first team and I’m sure agent Firpo could have a word!
RB Lipstick or whatever their called have had a bid of €6m rejected, he’s quality and we could prob get him for £12-15m as he’s out of contract next year. Can play anywhere in centre mid positions. Highly rated and would have a big sell on value.

Me

1.) 25 Aug 2021 17:21:20
I thought of him a week or so ago and wondered if he'd be good. Sure seems like a talent and as you say should only get better.


2.) 25 Aug 2021 17:27:28
Unless he cost £800k that speculation goes on forever, Cunha gone for 26mill to Athletic seems a worthwhile punt.


3.) 26 Aug 2021 11:05:06
Apparently the lad was in London last weekend to talk to Chelsea. Maybe Agent Firpo should broker a chat with Agent Bate, to talk some sense into young Moriba.

Am I alone in thinking that we are clearly not spending as the board clearly see expanding Elland Rd as the priority?
Personally I’d be more concerned in the first 3 seasons in the prem in building a SQUAD that has depth and quality competition for places to push toward the top half of the table first. Then worry about expanding the stadium once we have consolidated ourselves as a premier league side.
It seems everyone around us is strengthening and adding to their squads and yet we are not.
Yes maybe I am a glass half empty after the last 2 decades we’ve had to endure ( except the last 2) but Jesus we’ve apparently missed out on, Draxler, De Paul, Cunha, Lang, Traore, Gallagher, Nandez, Koopmeiners the list goes on and on and seems we can’t even get the kid from the dog bummers!
An underwhelming summer to say the very very least. I mean we haven’t even utilised our loan allowance.
Forgive the rant lads I’m just so bloody disappointed when we could be kicking on, the lads out played themselves last season and we need depth in numbers.

Me

1.) 23 Aug 2021 20:14:37
pretty much spot on post Me
we seriously overachieved last season so not to improve the squad, in fact weaken the squad, with the loss of Pablo, Berra and Alioski only replacement Firpo ( with the jury out on him) is dangerously complacent by Radz and Co

financing stadium rebuild should not take precedence over financing team strengthening recruitment in just season 2 of being back in epl not yet (firmly) established.


2.) 23 Aug 2021 20:30:03
Time will indeed tell what impact the lack of activity in this window will have.

If we slide into a losing run or develop serious injuries to key players, we all know the narrative that nothing of worth happens in the January window .

It seems a very dangerous game to play to not strengthen now and continue the upward trajectory from last season.

The Leeds name is currently attractive to players but a losing run will have a detrimental impact to that come late December when only a few journeymen are available .

Obvs I hope it won't come to that and that I am completely wrong again 😂.


3.) 23 Aug 2021 21:09:01
Glad it’s not just me fellas, I don’t really understand why have all these billionaires o brought onto the board yet not adding funds to invest in the playing staff. I’m not talking spending 100’s of millions just a few to add the depth we need. Time will tell and I hope to hell we go injury free all year.


4.) 23 Aug 2021 22:43:19
If we do not add obvious quality now, what message does this send to the likes of Raphina.


5.) 24 Aug 2021 00:42:32
Exactly Leo.


6.) 24 Aug 2021 06:45:40
Wow, this is a negative post.

Come on guys, there are another 36 games to watch this season. 36 Premier League games. Involving Leeds. How can you be so down?

I keep reading post about how disappointed people are that we haven't spent millions and millions of pounds on every clickbait that gets put out there!

The majority wanted Casilla gone. Hey, guess what, he's gone.

The majority wanted a better left back. Guess what, we have the upgrade.

The majority wanted more central midfield numbers. So what do you want to do, buy some one in and thus limit the chances of our young players? because the majority also like how our U23s are progressing!

The majority want cover for Phillips. Yep, like anyone who is of that standard the the "majority" want will be delighted to sign up as an understudy. I think that "majority" think we are a top 6 team were players will play understudy on £100k/ w.


7.) 24 Aug 2021 07:36:43
Axe it's just a few us are concerned about the lack of depth in the squad . We just don't have have enough quality replacements and for whatever reason bielsa does not seem to use the U23,s you speak of .

Seriously if Kal or say Raph +paddy were to get injured do you genuinely believe Jack / Helder / Rodi et Al will be as good and win us games weak in weak out?


8.) 24 Aug 2021 07:44:46
Doesn't one of Radzs companies own the Elland road ground and not the club? If he was to sell his shares in the football club, I take it he will still legally own the ground.


9.) 24 Aug 2021 10:11:33
Week in week out, predictive text type error.


10.) 24 Aug 2021 16:31:56
Chris Chris. I like it. weak in, weak out. Weak, as in the loss of the better players. genius.

1.) 23 Aug 2021 03:48:24
wow why does he not ever learn not to come charging out.


2.) 23 Aug 2021 04:07:01
Baz On this occasion he was correct to charge out. It was simpler and correct simply to gather the ball with his hands 🙌. Instead he chose the wild hot air kick. Perhaps Berm is his goalkeeping coach? 🤣.


 

 

19 Aug 2021 13:40:48
So AZ apparently only want €18m for Koopmeiners . This reported by Fabrizio Romano. Come on Victor that’s a no-brainer fella.

Me

1.) 19 Aug 2021 15:07:20
If bielsa is saying that it is unlikely that Leeds will be bringing in any more players during this transfer window then we got to believe that is the case. Seems he is more than happy with the squad he's got.


2.) 19 Aug 2021 15:29:10
According to some reports including Bielsa there will be no more incomings, an attacking goal scoring midfielder of quality should've
been a priority with the left back we got.


3.) 19 Aug 2021 16:03:20
How can you watch a 5-1 mauling with a fragile midfield and say you are happy?


4.) 19 Aug 2021 16:04:56
Ye I saw that Mezzer, let’s hope that doesn’t come back and bite us in the ass.


5.) 19 Aug 2021 18:46:26
Not one of our players could stand up and said they played well last week. That was not the Leeds of the last three seasons. We will be reet.


 

 

16 Aug 2021 09:12:54
Well here’s to a better week than how the last 1 ended hey lads!
Here’s an idea and a cheaper on than Kent or James ( and it’s less than 3 year old rumours)
Maxwell Cornet in at left wing, Firpo in behind him at LB. Push Harrison across into the #10 ( yes I do believe Jack has the ability and the work rate to play there) Dallas at #8. Bamford/ Rodrigo @9. Yangel Herrera as cover/ comp for Kalv and Dallas
Cornet cover for Firpo
Harrison cover for Cornet
Herrera as comp/ cover for Kal and Dallas
Roberts/ Rodrigo cover for Harrison.
Summerville/ Jack/ Poveda cover Rapha

Means spending less than 35m solves our issues and sell costa circa £10m so an out lay of 25m = roughly 50m total spend that’s half last summers spend and adds strength where it’s needed.
Thoughts?

Me

1.) 16 Aug 2021 10:57:14
Question is does bielsa have faith in the likes of summerville, or any of the under23 squad to use them.


2.) 16 Aug 2021 10:57:21
Me, all good thoughts. Personally I have no idea how good Cornet is and is he really better than Harrison?

My thoughts have always been that we should spend on the first team only on players that are an improvement on what we already have. I don't see we have the luxury of moving a very good left winger in to the No10 position to "see" if he can do it, if we are replacing him on the left wing with someone inferior.

At the moment I still think we are experimenting with Rodrigo learning the nuances of that role and how it differs from a deep lying 9. (With Qatar on the horizon, and his failure to land a spot in the Spanish Euro squad, I am hoping for good things from Rodrigo this season. )

For me the next signing needs to be in the engine room. We have been linked with many box-to-box midfielders and defensive midfielders. I want that area improved so we are not having to disrupt the central defensive units to fill in when Phillips is out. I would love to see if Drameh could do the CDM cover and leave centre back to be centre back. The young lad defends really well in the U23 and probably has enough speed to make up for not always reading the play well.


3.) 16 Aug 2021 11:02:05
I think Harrison could play at no10 too but he's not as creative as Hernandez was fot example so would prefer a creative midfielder there.

Would be nice to move Costa on but he's pants so nobody wants him.


4.) 16 Aug 2021 11:04:42
Let Bamford go to Spurs, play Rodrigo up front and then buy a decent midfielder who can actually play no.10 and some cover for Philips at DM would be an even better plan.


5.) 16 Aug 2021 12:25:21
trouble is Alf there is only 15 days left of the window to do all that ;

I am starting to feel there will NOT be any more incomings or outgoings with the Leeds first team squad this window.


6.) 16 Aug 2021 13:38:44
If BamBam goes, I fear that Bielsa will too. how’s that for pessimism from a hot tubber.


7.) 16 Aug 2021 14:50:48
Relaxx o pessimistic Brighty

there is more chance of a team signing Costa than Leeds ever agreeing to sell Bambam or any of our better players this window ; AK alluded to such in previous podcast

also very much doubt that Bambam is actually wanted by Spuds just clickbait bs

they would need a marquis £70 million plus striker signing if Kane left.


8.) 16 Aug 2021 15:02:53
Axe, just used cornet as an example mate. He’s affordable and versatile is more the key point really.

Couldn’t care less about him. Still think cornet would be decent as he offers cover/ competition all the way down the left.
Apparently we’ve bid for Adolfo Gaich AGAIN! Maybe the cdm am be a loan if we can’t get a priority target in permanently this summer.

Asensio is a very decent player, but like a fair few at madrid we’re stifled by Zidanes reign. Bielsa would definitely get him back to his best and even convert him into an 8 or 10.

The quarantine situation is a joke, it’s 10 days but if you pay for a pcr test on day 5 and it’s clear your free to leave the quarantine! Basically if you pay matt Hancock’s mates company your free to go corruption at its finest.

Agreed 1 good game doesn’t make a good season. What Forshaw does offer us is more help for Kalvin defensively in the centre of the park. In my opinion we need another good CB ( unless Koch eventually gets to that level)
A quality finisher and a creative spark midfielder.

Can’t see a loan happening unless it’s a loan to buy like Harrison. I’m still surprised Radz has never used his friendship with Mr Moneybags at PSG to take anyone on loan from them! They’ve got quality in depth and players on the fringes that could come and really help our squad.
I can’t see us bringing anyone in now but feel we’ve massively missed a trick this transfer window. Still think Moriba from Barcelona should be looked at or even Mauro Icardi or Julian Draxler from PSG get the loans used.

Bamfords been ace last season but has to be self motivated as he has no genuine competition for his starting role. Bamford can easily know he can go 8 games without a goal and he will start.

He may be club captain but he’s a liability at this level but hey in Bielsa we all must trust.
