Lewie coyle sold for undisclosed fee.
Undisclosed basically means don't want the fans to moan that we've given another player away for peanuts.

Clearly way down the pecking order. No biggie.


2.) 10 Jan 2020 16:29:30
Think the asking price was around 500k somlets say half of that.


3.) 10 Jan 2020 16:36:25
Most fees are “undisclosed “ it’s often journalists that decide a fee

Good luck to the lad

Reality is his fee will cover some wages and not much more.


4.) 10 Jan 2020 18:25:06
I doubt it was any more than £100,000.probably less.

That acid test for us is the 15th of September against the in breads ( millwall)
Last year top of the league and unbeaten .
Went to milkwall got bullied, lost and it all went south from there. Just watched millwall lose at home after being 1 up and Swansea down to ten men.
There manager was fuming, they are going to be angry, physical and it's leeds.
What happens there will I think shape our season.

The Slough white

1.) 02 Sep 2018 09:03:06
Agree slough i had similar thoughts, the Millwall game and Preston game our next Two. Maybe tougher games than what we have faced so far. Teams know how we play now and don't think we are going to be a surprise with our style of play. Do think we have more than enough to get a result but these type of teams will be up for us and in our faces.


2.) 02 Sep 2018 13:39:08
We'll be fine, IF we get a decent ref.


3.) 03 Sep 2018 14:07:51
Mutley a big welcome to the mad house, I would agree with you can’t see how he will fit in the squad a team the moment, needs to prove a lot as to date he’s far a part, still we are doing great at the moment, in joy you time on this site.


4.) 03 Sep 2018 14:47:30
Think we will beat Millwall, different team from last year, more grit and commitment. Wall have not got much to offer and will be surprised if they finish with ten men. Preston play well but against our first team they will struggle. Think Bielsa may have a plan for them.


5.) 03 Sep 2018 14:49:59
Absolutely AL! That boro ref was a joker! Just watched back the Friend tackle on Harrison that wasn't a booking, and the accidental tangle of legs that got Samu booked! Shocking double standards!


6.) 04 Sep 2018 13:48:09
depends if Bermo is going to the game - he doesn't have the best of luck when watching his beloved Leeds.


7.) 04 Sep 2018 14:55:52
It's the same every game Bright, I think someone will have to drive a car onto the pitch and run one of our players over to get a penalty.

With regards Jansson, is he officially our player right now. My point is, I thought he was signing a contract at the end of the season. Which means if he moves on before signing we get nothing.

The Slough white

1.) 19 Apr 2017 23:24:32
Nobody knows.


2.) 20 Apr 2017 19:38:50
he signed in jan he is our player believe we paid 3.5 for him. If he gets sold it will be leeds desicion and leeds will get the fee. My worry is he seemed to start playing soppy stuff after signing for us and since then the 'problems' have started. his agent said today he will not keep him if we don't go up, even then he still might go, still only one player and we will get great fee on him so either way is kind of a win for us


3.) 21 Apr 2017 08:26:51
My big worry, this is from reading what media sources have said so it could be flat out wrong, is that his current contract is with Torino and he is on loan with us. To officially sign a contract with us he can't already have one i. e. the loan, This would mean that although we have agreed a fee and a contract the paperwork won't be filed till the loan expires.

If that's true, and a team makes a big offer, he could still reject the contract we have offered him before it comes into effect which would mean we get £0 for him because we never technically owned him (Torino would get the payout) . Now he could sign for us regardless (out of loyalty at that point) or it could be media sources not understanding the contract situation (not sure how it works myself) but isn't that how Cellino dodged Cameron Stewart? that's why i'm a little worried, not just that we will lose him but we won't see a penny.


4.) 21 Apr 2017 14:36:52
Did we have to pay Stewart compensation?


5.) 21 Apr 2017 14:41:37
As I believe it he signed in january for the contract to start at the end of the loan at the end of season and one payment has been made to torino and the second due at the seasons end so he's our player signed and sealed and if I remember celinio lost the Cameron Stewart case in court and had to pay players wages.

Just seen team news this weekend. Here's my prediction off what will happen. Bielsa said Rodrigo won't start.
Roberts will play, he'll be his usual s***e.
We'll be losing at half time. He'll then hook Roberts and put on Rodrigo to turn it round.

Mark my words.

The Slough white

1.) 20 Nov 2020 15:42:31
Steady Slough we cannot exceed our one Oracle limit in a calendar year, think Bielsa press conference confirmed Rodrigo will not start but it may be Geldhart over Roberts, i’ve asked Santa anyway.


2.) 20 Nov 2020 17:01:22
Class, I’ll come back Monday and use that clique I told you so.

4.) 20 Nov 2020 17:33:29
Be delighted to read it Slough especially if Rodrigo turns it around and we win mate.


5.) 20 Nov 2020 22:55:47
However it happens I’ll take a win

And let’s be honest you don’t need to be the orical to predict belisa you just need to of watched any one Leeds game over last three years.

Watching Spain v Germany. Koch having a torrid time in Germany defence i'm afraid 😟.

The Slough white

1.) 18 Nov 2020 06:08:35
Torrid or Torres?


2.) 18 Nov 2020 06:48:28
Yes, watching that horror show too. Our lad has a mistake in him every game it seems, but I don't think there are many centre backs out there that would have done any better considering the numbers of waves of attack Spain were allowed to construct.

Germany, spookily like Leeds, looked to be missing a defensive midfielder who could break up those waves of attack prior to them getting as far as the defensive line AND instigate incisive counter attacks.

As I watched it I was cringing for our lad, he has now been in teams that have conceded 4 goals, 4 goals and 6 goals but in all honesty he is not "the problem".
Leicester, they are bloody good these days. They have spent wistly and grown over a number of seasons. They will do that to many more sides.
Palace, could have been different if Bamford's goal had been allowed. We wouldn't have had to chase the game. But may be we needed a reality check that we have to be 100% against all teams not just the top 6.
Spain, he was in a new look defence with no outstanding leader and they got beaten by one of the most impressive attacking sides in world football. Freak results happen, remember Brazil against Germany a few years back.

Hopefully out of the baptism of fire we gain a battle hardened warrior. I will not write this young man off just yet.


3.) 18 Nov 2020 10:27:22
Koch does have a mistake in him, but as axe said most do now days proper defenders seem to be a thing of the past.

he also has pace and can defend so for the time being i'm backing him.

I think it is clear leeds will always be weak in defence due to belisa style (said this last year and got laughed at because we kept clean sheets but this was down to keeping ball not being able to defend) . Belisa style also means we will hurt a lot of teams and scare most if not all.

I also agree with Axe we need a dm who can break up play and set up attacks but they are also few and far between and city spent millions on Rodri and I don't think he is great (not seen much of him though) .

I do think the obvious problem with leeds is due to our style our defenders need to be good and Cooper is bottom of the championship standard. He only got promoted due to how good leeds were because he is not a top championship defender let alone prem.

I am not one for stats as I think they can be misleading however results are not. Look at our results with Cooper compared to without Cooper and it speaks for itself.

we are a newly promoted team and doing very well but we don't have much depth but I think once lorrente and koch both get use to the prem and each other they will be as good a defence as the prem has. because let's be honest no one in the prem has a good defence even city and Liverpool are suspect at the back.


4.) 18 Nov 2020 11:19:27
Coops must be happy he has upgraded from the hyperbole of some posters ' League One Liam' atandardc' to now 'bottom of the championship standard'

In reality Coops is neither, yes he looks not to be EPL standard ( yet) but he has more than proved he is a decent to good Championship defenderstandard ( yes but still with a few mistakes in him ) but good enough getting into the EFL Championship team of the season I seem to recall.

Even the best defenders make mistakes, but it is the frequency of
Koch mistakes that are the concern and he definitely needs to make much better matchplay defensive decisions and concentrate at all times fully for the entire duration of each match.

Maybe CDM will turn out to be Koch's best position after all.


5.) 18 Nov 2020 12:10:41
Agree baz re coops and Koch.
Unless leeds stop giving the ball away in high press system our defenders will always be under pressure.
Defenders are now supposed to distribute the ball not just kick it out of play. This means they have to think more which allows time for errors. I think Koch. Coops. White all make or made errors.
I’m hoping loriente solids us up.
Can’t see Koch moving forward while we have Kalvin.


6.) 18 Nov 2020 12:49:51
Indeed Aus

As for Llorente I am praying that he will be available soon.


7.) 18 Nov 2020 14:19:05
not sure about Liam Cooper being in the championship team of the season. So was Pontus and most rubbished him once he left.

Truth is Liam is bottom of the championship standard but was protected and made to look good by playing in the best team that played great football and kept the ball well.

As I said before there is a difference between a boxer who can take a punch and one that doesn't get hit, same with teams being good at defending and not having to as they keep the ball most of the game

Liam is error prone and the worst Cb ever at winning headers, has he ever scored from a header or even won a header? I honestly don't remember seeing him win many if any headers. Also at some points he looks like he has no idea what the game is. The second goal against leister (the diving header followed by tap in) Liam was in no mans land, marking no one and left koch with two men. things like this is what makes my assessment of him being bottom five champ standard. over being in a team picked by people that think keeping a clean sheet means we can defend (it doesn't)


8.) 18 Nov 2020 15:33:58
Berm .
Cooper was in the PFA Championship team of the season in 2018- 19 and 2019-2020 so the players that played against him clearly rate him.

I agree though about his heading, but many defenders these days aren't. so good in the air. and the ball is on the floor so much more than in the air in the EPL.

The thing is 🤔 Berm your top 4 prediction ( later changed by you to 5th to 9th ) Leeds league position final placing seems illogical if you genuinely consider both KP and Captain Coops ( in vital positions CD and cdm ) ' pony' 🤔 when you know that it is likely both will be picked to play under Bielsa.


9.) 18 Nov 2020 18:37:28
god BV you seem to be very selective over my posts that you read. I have said many times on here my top 4 prediction was tongue in cheek

I do think we could finish around 5-9th as this season is mental. If Lorrent comes good and Cooper don't play we are as good as anyone on there day because no team is reliable or in form. it is a mental season

I don't think we will get champs league that was a joke, trying to be positive for a change. but get shot down for that as well

the way you ignore and remember selective bits of information makes you eligible for parliament


10.) 18 Nov 2020 19:49:10
Lol Berm
fair enough

tongue in cheek or not it would be fabulous if Leeds did finish 9th

. hopefully Llorente cam start for Leeds soon.


11.) 18 Nov 2020 20:19:47
Bermo

Your definitely in the Happy Place. Love the posts. You have loads of good points to raise once the old subject is put to rest.
I have not seen Llorente play at all so I am hoping you observations are going to be spot on. Can only imagine how roasted Koch is going to get by Llorente, Rodrigo and Henandez when he gets back to ER

Just think on, soon your happy place could be Axe's Hottub.

Contacting draxler from PSG. It feels to me we're now starting to panic and are just going for names with no reasoning behind it.

The Slough white

Swapping Paris for Leeds about as likely as BW posting before the end of the year.


 

 

02 Sep 2020 10:56:40
I know your all going to rip me to shreds on this post, but I don't think Rodrigo was the right way to go.
He's 29, so no chance of recouping anything in the future.
But mainly, was it 4 goals last season. I personally would of preferred for probably the same outlay. pukki from Norwich and Watkins from Brentford.
Just my opinion, time will tell. Obviously hope I'm wrong and he gets 15-20 goals next season.

The Slough white

1.) 02 Sep 2020 11:24:11
Slough

No ripping to shreds from me. I totally understand your issue over Rodrigo's age, 29.
If we were liverpool, with their particular business model in which they tend to buy younger so they mainly look to an increase value of the player, then 29yo is not a decent return for them

I would think Leeds are on a different business model. Thetes is about staying in the Premier League. There's is about TV money, and Sponsorship money, not so much player transfer fees
We need top quality now. We can't afford to play the long game

Watkins is a good measure of this. He is young and shown plenty of all round talent. But as yet he hasn't played Premier League, Champions League or International football. For the same overall cost as Rodrigo, I think at the moment we need players who can hit the ground running. Rodrigo will not be overawed by places like Manchester, liverpool and london teams. His value will be he could keep us up and thus another £150m season. To help with his resale value at this stage.


2.) 02 Sep 2020 11:27:53
Well when palace have reject 20 million for Sorloth who can’t hit a barn door it puts in to perspective. You maybe right but if he scores enough to keep us up over next 3 seasons he will of recouped his transfer fee anyway .


3.) 02 Sep 2020 11:45:20
I slightly agree with you Slough or at least have a small doubt. I seem to have read somewhere that the word prolific could not be aimed at Rodrigo. I can only believe that the great man has seen something in him that he can work on and we will have on our hands a regular 20+ a season striker or a 20+ a season assister. The deal is done, he is a Mighty White now so onwards and upwards.


4.) 02 Sep 2020 13:12:25
Last few seasons he hasn't been playing as an out and out striker so you would expect a lower return. Conversion rate much higher than Bamfords which is potentially what we need and high work rate.


5.) 02 Sep 2020 13:36:00
I think he will respond to the opportunity and the manager. Last season not a good year to play for Valencia, club falling apart a bit and he was injured. Don’t forget he plays for Spain and has scored 5 plus international goals in a year.


6.) 02 Sep 2020 14:06:20
Yes a few negatives there Slough, but he is a spanish international and if Bielsa wanted him he must have seen something
Batshuayi was my own 1st pick, wilson from bmouth or watkins also fancied by me
Time will tell,
Still have a loan up our sleeve, so who knows.


7.) 02 Sep 2020 18:18:40
I think if our style of play can create chances he will finish and To be fair if we can get more goals from Harrison costa and midfield then that’ll help . Costa and Harrison really need to step up for us to have a good season.

Package of 30 million euros for a 29 year old with a one in four/ five strike rate .
