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.

Me

1.) 08 Jun 2021 16:52:49
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.


2.) 13 May 2021 10:53:00
Cun kun, tomato tomatoe again.

Maybe just me slightly panicked but we’ve got to get these transfers moving and get the required positions covered so the new lads may have a chance of being available before October/ November as we all know Bielsa likes them to be fully interstates before considering for selection.

Me

1.) 26 Jul 2021 09:57:59
Me, relax.

Even if we don't get anymore first team players in before near the end of the transfer window it won't be a travesty.

We have the same squad as last year bar a couple of the older lads moving on, and they were only coming on off the bench. Fripo is an obvious upgrade on Alioski (only in the sense LB is his role and he is not being asked to fill in)

As I see it we have a lovely settled first team squad with certain individuals such as Llorente, Rodrigo and Koch desperate to prove themselves from the off this time.
Radz, Orta and Bielsa have the luxury this year of only buying exactly what they want and giving such players time to integrate before they are expected to produce the goods

BTW, I don't see the young keeper they are looking to buy as the backup to Meslier. I think he is an upgrade on Caprile. I think we will loan an older head. There is no rush for that, no need to pay the backup until we actually need him. Let his current club get him fit and pay his wage (I read that Peacock-Farrell may be loaned out! at least he knows the drive to work)


2.) 26 Jul 2021 11:05:44
Ye I get that axe, I’m not so much worried I just hoped we would have had more than just Jr Firpo in already. I’m sure there will be a surprise name or 2 yet to come.


3.) 26 Jul 2021 12:28:34
Me, I think we all would love to see a few new faces at pre-season too, but I guess all these buying and selling clubs do the "who blinks first" approach to transfers

Last year we definitely needed more quality to keep us up. This time we can be a bit pickier. We don't need to pay top dollar. Or may be we are looking at even higher value additions this time?

Glass half full, hot tub bar fully stocked.


4.) 26 Jul 2021 12:50:56
The question I ask myself is, if we do not buy another player am I satisfied with what we have, and the answer must be yes. In midfield where we seem to be concentrating our efforts I feel we have Dallas, Klich and Forshaw (an unknown quantity) as candidates. Until we capture our perfect choice, I would be more than happy for one of them to fill the void.


5.) 26 Jul 2021 14:59:35
Klich burned out badly last season and isn't getting any younger. I wouldn't count on much from Forshaw either. I personally think we desperately need reinforcements in midfield (as we have for the last 2 years now) and the sooner the better.


6.) 26 Jul 2021 15:07:25
I think more creative midfielder is needed. Don’t really believe that Forshow will play much. Klich lacks consistency.
And if smth happens to Firpo or Ayling Dallas will be moved there to cover.
Maybe young lads can fill the gaps… But I would be much happier if we get someone proven, but only if it would be an upgrade. Don’t want players to be brought just for quantity.


 

 

16 Jul 2021 07:33:30
Some reports this fine morning that Valencia are wanting to pick up a costa! Maybe it’s time for us to use him as part ex for either Soler or Guedes?

Me

1.) 16 Jul 2021 09:48:17
Not a bad shout, Me. Wolves strongly rumoured to be after Guedes - unsurprisingly 🇵🇹. Out of those two, I’d take Soler, as can play left, right or central midfield and seems to be able and willing to put a shift in defensively too.


2.) 16 Jul 2021 11:11:02
Agreed Clue, soler does look a more Bielsa type player and would certainly fill a few gaps.


3.) 16 Jul 2021 14:16:44
Just let them have him and get him off the wage bill. Waste of money.


4.) 16 Jul 2021 15:57:00
To be fair Alf, he actually started last season quite well - with an assist at Anfield and a brace of goals v Fulham. Unfortunately, Costa seems to have significant confidence issue. It looks like as soon as it became clear how good Raphinha was, and that Bielsa maybe saw him and Harrison as preferred starters, Costa’s form seemed to drop.

It did look like his form was perhaps picking up towards the end of the season, in what was our supposedly our most difficult run of fixtures - don’t forget, he played 90 minutes in our 10-man win at Citeh. It was very unfortunate for him that Wan-Bissaka pulled that back-breaker wrestling move on him which ruled him out for the rest of the season.


5.) 16 Jul 2021 19:09:48
He plays ok when it's sunny Clu but can't be bothered any other time.


6.) 16 Jul 2021 23:22:48
I’m sorry, but that’s a very simplistic way of looking at things Alf. Yes, he hasn’t delivered consistently to the level required, and it probably would be best if he had a fresh start in a league in which he might flourish, like La Liga. However, I feel it is unfair to say he can’t be bothered.


7.) 17 Jul 2021 06:15:43
Costa is a fine player attacking wise but is similar to Cooper at this level. He's error prone and those errors normally result in danger for our defence. He doesn't track back like the rest of the team but he is a decent footballer. For a top 10 budding top 6 PL side like us, he's either a squad member or you sell him to a newly promoted PL side or abroad. There's no need to berate him since his contribution was still reasonable. I can see us selling him in the next few weeks to balance the books.


8.) 17 Jul 2021 07:32:31
I agree with George. We cannot understate how important Costa was for us getting promoted. Personally I don’t like him for Bielsa’s system; it doesn’t play to his strengths. He runs back to help defend but often doesn’t get tight enough to stop the cross. He would suit a team that has a solid disciplined back 7 and a more free attacking 4. He would then be able to use his pace on the break to exploit space. There would be lots of championship clubs that would love to have him.


9.) 17 Jul 2021 09:40:21
George and Ali - you’re absolutely right on Costa. Glad that others have noted that he does actually put a shift in, though unfortunately not best suited for Bielsa’s team setup.

With his lighter build he is probably better suited to the Spanish game. In the Championship, particularly with Wolves, he was able to get away with this with his pace and abilities on the ball, but in the Prem where the physicality remains and teams defensive abilities are higher, he is perhaps less able to have a consistent impact. So for his sake I hope he gets a move to Spain, and that his fairly recent declaration for Angola, his country of birth, helps him get opportunities on the international front too.

Transfer front has gone very quiet considering we were apparently hoping to get all our deals done early! Still need a midfielder, winger and keeper.

Me

1.) 13 Jul 2021 12:29:23
Tbf Me, with the way Orta works that could mean we have no one lined up or we've got 3 sorted and lined up for medicals by friday. How many have we only found out about a day or two before? Also euros + copa then players wanting some time off at least will hold a lot of transfers up.


2.) 13 Jul 2021 16:17:38
Chase them down Victor. Track and Trace. It should be easy Benidorm is only a couple of hours away.


3.) 13 Jul 2021 19:08:47
Ye Gummie, victor like to pull the rabbit out the hat that’s for sure. I’d love to see Damsgaard as an option for the wings and #8 I’d offer Costa as part ex, I actually think costa would be decent in Italian footy. Then a decent keeper and maybe a loan for someone like florentino luiz as cover for Kalvin or Maxence Caqueret from Lyon.


4.) 13 Jul 2021 23:46:56
Think it seems teams still asking top dollar so could have to find new targets or wait until the last week see if prices drop.


5.) 14 Jul 2021 06:32:41
Allegedly we are in talks with keepers currently.


 

 

08 Jul 2021 15:45:38
And here we go again with the junkyard journos giving it the big Ryan Kent one again!

If we were to sign him which I highly doubt then he’d be nothing but a simple squad player. He ain’t ginna challenge Harrison or Raphinha in any lifetime.

Leave him playing Sunday league in Scotland.

As that extra wing option either Cornet or Kent! Come on journo’s there’s no competition there.

Me

1.) 08 Jul 2021 22:22:09
If we do get Cornet, I hope they give him shirt number 99. 😉.


2.) 09 Jul 2021 04:01:52
Definitely a joke about replacing a screwball with 99 cornet, something something hope he doesn't turn out to be a flake. I'll work on it.


3.) 09 Jul 2021 08:17:45
If he does come and cops one in the the knackers, does that mean Cornet will have crushed nuts.


4.) 09 Jul 2021 08:46:00
He’s got hundreds and thousands of fans.


5.) 09 Jul 2021 17:46:10
Well played boys!

Fabrizio Romano reports Junior Firpo is all but done for an initial £12.9m + add ons.
Fingers crossed it’s signed and delivered in the next few days, not a bad start to the window in my opinion. MOT.

Me

1.) 28 Jun 2021 19:17:32
I believe it when I see it on the Leeds site. Many things seem to go wrong for Leeds regarding transfers.


2.) 28 Jun 2021 19:57:18
Hmm
Is this the same " reliable " Fabrizio Romano previously linking Leeds for over a year ( 3 transfer windows) with a certain Rodrigo de Paul

Just like last season Leeds will
eventually end up signing 4 very good players just need to wait it out: it will happen.


3.) 28 Jun 2021 20:25:22
Baz, could be worse mate he might have said we were close to signing Matt Target! 💩💩💩.


4.) 28 Jun 2021 21:05:39
Hope he will be as good as our latest Junior - Roque Junior!


5.) 28 Jun 2021 23:10:19
My dead cat would be as good as Roque Junior was.


6.) 29 Jun 2021 09:32:52
The Leeds way. Of all the names bandied about, at the eleventh hour, Firpo pops up.
PS sorry to hear about your cat Cana.


7.) 29 Jun 2021 12:22:14
Journos have been saying for a while that we were after another left back that had not been named. Maybe Firpo was he.


8.) 29 Jun 2021 12:25:12
Looking good to sign.
Anybody seen him play a game?
I know he at Barcelona but would he be a starter in the prem? Good enough?


9.) 29 Jun 2021 13:20:38
He will be if he comes to us - we don't have any other options!

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.

Alf, so many conflicting reports/ rumours regarding all our supposed targets each day. It’s hard to try second guess who we actually are after and who are just media speculation.
There’s reports today as you’ve posted above and then others saying we aren’t and never have been interested in Nandez.
Same with Cunha, I’d personally be very happy to get Nandez, Cunha and Firpo alongside Jack on a permanent deal and a good back up keeper.

Way I read it was that someone at fenerbahce was claiming that Bielsa has demanded szalai . Not too sure how they can claim that as surely Bielsa would have spoken privately to victor not someone at the Turkish club.
Hey ho got to love a rumour.

Couldn’t agree more axe, rumours circling again this afternoon that we have made a fresh approach to sampdoria for Damsgaard. Now that would be a huge step up from Frank Gallagher. Like I said previously I do get the feeling Orta has a big one waiting to happen.

Not bothered about Gallagher if I’m honest. I don’t think he improves the 11, just the squad.
Don’t see the value in a loan unless there’s an option to buy at the end.
Would definitely like to see some incomings sooner rather than later though.
Maybe try take advantage of Barcelona’s desperate need to offload so they can register the free transfers they’ve made.
How about a cheeky 2yr loan for dembele we pay 50% of wages with the option to buy at the conclusion of loan?
I still recon orta has a big one up his sleeves.
