What about these rumours coming out of Metz? Farid Boulaya. First I have heard of it/ him. Having to scrabble round Google to find him. Nobody has mentioned the name ever before.
So, must be true, what do you think?

Career blighted by injury but q bit of a baller by all accounts. Would be good if stays fit but I worry about his injury record. However we do need a creative mid and at around £5m may be worth a punt depending on wages.


 

 

13 Jul 2021 16:19:49
good news/ bad news. Read somewhere that Casilla is definitely gone BUT we are still paying a "significant" amount of his wages?

leodis

1.) 13 Jul 2021 17:11:48
Oh, no, not THAT scenario again! Are we still paying Robbie Fowler too?


2.) 13 Jul 2021 22:23:38
Better than all his wages I suppose.


 

 

01 Mar 2021 17:48:38
Now chasing Nkoulo, a CB. Do we need another CB or is he replacing Kalvin?

leodis

1.) 01 Mar 2021 23:10:56
Hopefully so Struik can go out on loan (though I know peeps disagree) . That or to replace Cooper hopefully.


 

 

23 Feb 2021 17:39:43
29 year old right sided Lucas Vazquez. His pedigree is solid but I have to ask where does he play? RB Ayling/ Drameh. RW Raph/ Poveda/ Sumerville. Someone would have to be greatly disappointed. Oh hang on he's on a free!

leodis

1.) 24 Feb 2021 02:26:29
Good player and tracks back really well but let's be honest he only comes in if Raphinha leaves. Rather have Rapha.
Also he is on £115k a week, we could get 2 prem level players for that a week.


2.) 27 Feb 2021 13:46:15
i read somewhere he is on 50K a week, not sure how much i trust the source admittedly. His age for me isn't such a problem. He strikes me as someone who maybe his pace has or will go a little but will bust a gut and has experience playing for big teams in a high-pressure environment. Not like the last guy we signed from Madrid who basically sat on their bench for ages, this guy actually plays and if he gets a solid 3-4 yr deal to take him to 33 yrs good stuff. Free agent too means i'm not so annoyed about signing him with decreasing sell-on value based on age.


3.) 27 Feb 2021 13:48:40
would also say, Poveda looks promising yet still needs to take a big step to be truly useful. Drameh and Summerville have earned the chance to have a go in the first team I hope before the end of the season but have proved nothing yet i sincerely hope they do in some (hopefully) dead rubbers.


4.) 28 Feb 2021 03:41:35
That could be after tax maybe Ealing. Doubt any Madrid first team player (none youngster at least) is on less than 100k a week though, would have to have a terrible agent.


5.) 01 Mar 2021 23:05:44
Reports out of Spain that he wants £160k a week, surely ends any interest.


 

 

17 Feb 2021 13:02:55
With two doing a good job. With two "first choices" awaited and two young guns waitng in the wings why am I reading that we are still chasing Ben White. Surely that ship has sailed?

leodis

1.) 18 Feb 2021 06:39:46
Lazy journalism is my guess.


2.) 18 Feb 2021 17:28:11
Bielsa supposedly doesn't like to give up on a player that fits what he wants and has had a lot of effort put into so I do think we will keep an eye on him and maybe bid again. That said even if they do decide to sell I don't feel like we will match what the bigger boys will offer, fee or wage.
As to whether we need him, Cooper will be the wrong side of 30 next season and has struggled to keep up with prem attackers in terms of pace and aerial ability in many games. White, Koch, Llorente and Struik (+youngsters) could give us a stable CB rotation for the next 6 or 7 years.


3.) 18 Feb 2021 17:59:55
Leo Because he's class and can play DM plus last time I checked we can sell defenders or loan them out. Can't see Cooper playing many games for us next season.


4.) 19 Feb 2021 17:11:11
White and Draxler are the only two I would break the bank for.

Sadly 😥.

Overall, probably the best team of the tournament actually won but a big shout out to the England team. They did so well to reach the final. Let's all day that they lacked experience and it just came a little too soon. A ctually we did well to beat what even the Germans consider a poor team. Were lucky to get a soft pen against Denmark and bottom line couldn't even beat the Jocks. No, all in all we overcharged but with a few tweaks we could be again a major force in World Football. Most of our players are good, but not great, and even the great up front was firing blanks. If it wasn't for Sterling we would have been lucky to survive the Quarters.

leodis

1.) 12 Jul 2021 03:47:07
Disagree. Italy second best team but with the best manager. Our players are great, if not great they're certainly better than just good. We have excellent players just with an inadequate coach from the vile.


2.) 12 Jul 2021 00:10:22
From a neutral supporter!
2 subs that went sideways. I’m almost sure that the lads on the pitch would’ve scored. They fought for that 120 mins.

My best wishes for this team. We supported you, Really disappointing it went that way.

KP - congrats for the lad. Stay in this great club and you’ll get only better.


3.) 12 Jul 2021 01:55:37
At the end of the day I'm not too upset with how everything panned out. I predicted Italy to win the tourney before it started and I predicted the result tonight. It always felt a tournament too soon for this squad for me, not because of quality but inexperience and a lot of new partnerships. Most of this squad will play the next 2 or 3 major tournaments (walker maybe the only exception and i wouldn't rule him out of next summer at the least) , the world cup we will be better, euros after potentially better again. Rice, Philips and Mount will be scary if they stay together for the next few years.


 

 

11 Jul 2021 09:53:48
So many names bandied about for a new winger (we need centre mid first) . The one that won't go away, Noa Lang but my particular favourite seems to have gone ice cold. Kvetchi K. The Georgian laD, pace and skill combined. Was it just paper talk?

leodis

1.) 11 Jul 2021 13:22:07
Noa rumour still kicking about although apparently AC Milan want him as well now so we may be put of luck.


2.) 11 Jul 2021 14:17:42
We convinced Firpo to turn down some big clubs (including Milan) so I wouldn't think it's improbable we do it again Alf. Offer of Prem football and a good chance at game time works in our favour compared to some of the bigger clubs.


3.) 11 Jul 2021 15:34:40
Not sure why AC Milan would be in for Noa Lang, as they signed 2 left wingers last season, Ante Rebic, a quality experienced player, and Jens Petter Hauge, a good young player. They’re also rumoured to be one of the teams keenest on Damsgaard.


4.) 11 Jul 2021 16:19:38
Gumbo What happened to your Romain Perraud prediction? 😂😂 Told ya we'd avoid him. Friend of mine close to the Barcelona hierarchy says Firpo is some player.


5.) 11 Jul 2021 16:34:42
Bloody hell george you sounding like Bermo! My mate is friendly with the Barcelona CEO 🤣.


6.) 11 Jul 2021 16:56:45
Tbf George I wanted Perraud over Galan and whoever the other one we got linked with at the time (and he is coming to the prem so i wasn't far out) he wanted to come to the prem so it made sense as a move, was a prediction, we don't all have insider knowledge bud, Firpo wasn't even mentioned back then. Firpo v Perraud is a very different kettle of fish though (still would have been happy with Perraud though, think Southampton have got a really good player) .


7.) 11 Jul 2021 17:07:59
George hehe your predictions track record by your own admission is pretty bad so it was about time you got something correct. 🤣.


8.) 11 Jul 2021 17:16:42
Memories of survivor Jeff and his club contacts! 🤣🤣🤣.


9.) 11 Jul 2021 18:22:31
Baz That case we should all be concerned. You'll recall I predicted a Euro 2020 success for England and Northdoor to be knighted.


10.) 11 Jul 2021 18:23:48
Cork Should be a fun evening for you tonight as a neutral with your Babychams 🍾.


11.) 11 Jul 2021 19:11:25
🤣Go on Georgetown boy. BTW I was born and raised in Shepherds Bush.,
2-0 England.


12.) 12 Jul 2021 00:14:43
Good prediction George.


 

 

05 Jul 2021 16:43:11
But who would Cornetto replace. Harrison? or Firpo?

leodis

1.) 05 Jul 2021 16:58:30
Maybe fill in for either.


2.) 05 Jul 2021 22:41:41
Cornet would be a utility sub and squad player.


3.) 06 Jul 2021 01:55:31
So I speculated last season that Harrison might transition quite well to a more central role and I wondered if that could explain us still looking at Cornet. However after watching some Vids of the lad he doent half remind me of a younger Zaha, pace, great touch, bombing runs cutting inside and likes a shot from range. A bit of retraining and I could see him being really dangerous in behind Paddy as well as covering the wide positions.


4.) 06 Jul 2021 09:52:59
And I thought pretty much the same for Dallas, Gummie. Same attributes.


 

 

29 Jun 2021 19:40:16
Enjoyed the game. Great result. KP played well BUT does anyone wish he would throw off the shackles and start pinging some 30 yard forward balls?
So far he seems to be only playing at 75% of his abilities.

leodis

1.) 29 Jun 2021 19:55:53
Spot on.


2.) 29 Jun 2021 21:38:41
The run comes before the pass.
He can't ping 30 yrd passes with the lack of movement from England.
Think about how much Bamford runs and how much Kane does.
Bamford creates so much space in the channels for others to run into which allows those passes.


3.) 29 Jun 2021 21:52:56
yes definitely.

Draxler, Really? let's just park him on the list between Messi and Bale. Just above Ronaldo (Christiano that is) .
Maybe he does prefer Paris to Leeds but he could live in Batley and get the train in.

The first big signing is the man himself. The rest will follow.

He would love to come back. It would make sense financially. He could live back at home and nip home for lunch and let the dog out. What's not to like.

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.

I, for a long while thought the Boguszh (and McCalmont) were the future of Leeds. Maybe I still do and maybe they will.

Over the last few years we have had some real (unpolished) diamonds shine through the U23s but as with many/ all others we try to buy instant success and of course I see why.

I just hope that in some way these young kids find there dreams fulfilled somewhere. Hopefully at Leeds.
