Morning all

Just catching up on all things Leeds and have viewed an article about how Leeds will not spend £100m, like Billa and Fulham have done, on new players if we go up.

Not sure what everyone else's opinion is on this but I personally think we should be looking to be close to that figure.
But at this point I have to point out that we would actually need to spend £48m on just 'owning' the promoted side before we even think about improving the squad so that we can stay up in the Premiership
£5m for Meslier
£20m-ish for White
£15m for Costa
£8m for Harrison
(I am not including Augustine as I don't think he has made an impact) .

I am confident that the squad we have will be able to stand to to toe with all but probably the top 6, but I worry that the small squad system will be our downfall in the latter half if the season when fatigue is a bigger issue. A don't advocate selling anyone this year but I would be happy with a few quality additions so that we can deal with a full season

A third centre back (2 if we don't get White) would help with the yellow card issue
(Foyth of Spurs)

A No8, as Klich can't do yet another full season on the trot
(Milner of Lpool)

A third decent winger, as that and fullback are Cruz positions.
(Wilson of Lpool)

A dominant goalscorer, I like everything about Bamford except his goalscoring but I thinking he will be bullied in the Premiership
(Mitrovic of Fulham)

I reckon we will have a £100m spend but only £50m will be totally new players to bed in.

Yes Axe, I have to smile when I read that Leeds have 48mill to spend on players. That's all, just to give us the team that we already have. I would be happy with Mitrovic and Foyth but most any fresh blood endorsed by Bielsa will do me.

Generally agree but less concerned about fatigue with there being many less games in the premier league. Would need to ensure we don't play too many of 1st team in cup competitions.

I think as a prem team we could get a couple of loanees from the top six teams, free agents will be interesting as we won't know who will avaliable, lots being said transfer prices might come right down so maybe look at championship players who could step up and clubs will sell, lad at forest, any of the front 3 from brentford, won't cost a fortune, sheff utd were very shrewd last season.

What about robin koch for white.

01 Jun 2020 11:37:14
sadly mate think you can put another 50 million on white, i can't see him coming to leeds as think he will go to a bigger club for around 60 million

I think we need three Cb's as cooper can not play in the prem, bit ike mervin day back in the day fair play if he gets us there but need s to be replaced.

I personally think we need steel to move Phillips next to klich but that is contraversial

i think bamford will fair better in prem but we do need a goal scorer and someone for pablo the man is a god but one year older and one step up in class could be one step to far for the little genius

i think klich will fly in prem and dallas deserves his chance, aling i love and harrision (if we keep him) is imporiving, costa not sure about in prem but will give benifit of the doubt

the gap between champ and prem is not as big as it was and we are a good footballing team but of course we will need a few good players as every promoted team does.

I think with the virus and subsequent loss income streams valuations will be on the lower side. I haven't read anywhere of any lower league player fetching that £60m figure you mention. And with White having no international experience or top league experience I can not see any team "taking a huge punt" on him in this financial climate.

Absolute fair play to Brighton if they got that sort of figure for him, but I then think there are a fair few centre backs out there that can do a job for us for well under that price tag.

Axe, maybe it will be a wise decision by Brighton to leave White here another season, until the transfer market picks up.

01 Jun 2020 15:48:35
you know what axe I didn't consider the the virus thing which could well affect football wages and price tags (making everything a bit more reasonable and normal to some extent)

I have read Liverpool were after him and if they get him i'd expect him to of been sold for around 50 million as that what a sqaud player of liverpool with the praise white has been getting could command but maybe after the virus things will become more reasonable where a good player like white can be brought for 20 million.
