Now we are back in the Premier League, we need to replace Victor with someone who has a proven track record in recruiting quality players who are not journey men and have the attitude of side before self every time - without breaking the bank.

Bring back Peter Ridsdale.

Agree2 Disagree0

Indeed 😉 and in all seriousness Pete always got his man
Viduka an absolute bargain at £6 million . what a player.

22 Aug 2020 15:57:50
When you said bargain I thought you meant Seth Johnson!

22 Aug 2020 16:46:01
Ha yes Canada
The Seth Johnson signing, but the only really bad value for money Ridsdale signing at £7.2 million was about 6.5 million too much

However one has to admit that Pistol Pete Ridsdale and co identified players efficiently and made these signings smoothly and quickly

In contrast to tne increasingly numerous transfer sagas of DJ, CA, JKA, BW that we have with the current regime of Orta, Radz and Kinnear with the JKA loan to buy signing sadly potentially up there with the biggest wastes of money far worse than Seth Johnson.

Get Bates! Him and Ridsdale could form the Dream team!

Bazooka, nothing could ever top the horrendous Seth Johnson signing! Possibly the worst in top flight football, he cost £7m back in 2001, only got in the pitch 54 times in 4 years and took £40k a week for the privilege, which was about £25k a week more than he went into negotiations to get! That’s how bad Risdale is at negotiating! He should never be allowed to be involved in football.

Lol MG I agree Pistol Pete got the Seth Johnson one badly wrong with transfer fee and salary, but the JKA one is potentially an even far greater loss.

But Ridsdale's signings were nearly all value for money transfer fees on quality players : Viduka, Batty, Bridges, Dacourt, Bakke Matteo, £14 million Leeds profit on Ferdinand, robbie Keane was worth the £12 million we paid for him class player who went on to score loads and loads of goals for spurs

Ridsdale'signings were good value for money quality players ( except Johnson) but he bought too many players in the end and gambled on champions league qualifications.

Success in football can be fine margins Leeds 1 point from Liverpool in.3rd to qualify for champions league again in 2001 etc.

Lol Brighty. Ken Bates best thing since sliced bread 🥴🥴🥴.

Could also mention some less than quality signings like:-
Huckerby, Duberry and Wilcox.
Yes he got deals done quickly but put us into liquidation as a result.
I'd much rather we were cautious as the bad old days are still a recent memory!

Let’s not forget Peter Ridsdale’s gamble did not work, result 16years in exile. We all loved that period with O’Leary but sadly it was a false dawn. Lesson learnt hopefully, don’t spend money that you don’t have.

True enough OP.
