Mornin siblings, I hope you are all well and enjoying the ride as much as I am, smashing. I am a little bemused by all the transfer talk in the media, firstly it was KP, now Raphinha. The true genius of Radz and Bielsa is that they have built not just a club and team but a family. The unity of both is key to our success. Bielsa has instilled an environment of doing the right thing in the right way, not just in football but in living life, the last 3 years are littered with examples (did you see what I did there) . let's not forget 2 summers ago KP turned down a lucrative deal with Villa to sign a 5 year deal with us. Why would Raphinha want to leave and why would we want to sell, this is a long term project that could take us anywhere and Leeds are growing massively. well, that's what I think anyway :)

Not sure raph has same loyalty as kp. As biesla keeps saying. Raph is ambitious.
I’m not saying if he stayed with us trophies and Europe won’t come. I’m just saying that there is a quicker route.
Think if we got offer over 50 mill and had replacement lined up we would have to consider it.
I think he is an awesome player but if his head turned. As wreckless Eric used to say.
Take the kash!

Agreed Aussie, would love him to stay and add to his talent but the lad knows that at the present time there is more chance of European stardom with one of the bif four. As we know a footballing life can be short so I cannot blame the lad for ambition, so agreed, if we can get BIG money and find a spare, let him go.
PS It would have to be some spare to match.

When any player doesn't want to be where he is, it is usually best to get shut.

Vid, you know me, always strapped in and always enjoying the ride.
Let you in to a secret, I even enjoyed the 6-2 defeat by Man utd. No, not because I had been turned by the bandwagonning pseudo supporters round here where I am but because we were actually playing a LEAGUE game at Old Trafford. After years of visiting small grounds around the country we were now legitimately a PL club. yessssss, get in. And what made it better was they smashed us, fair enough, with a few goals but we never stopped taking it to them.

On the subject of Raph, I totally agree with the idea that it depends on the motivation of the player. Personally I would be looking at how players have improved under the coaches that they might join. has Ole improved any of the guys he has signed. has James improved since Swansea? A more relevant one maybe. has Ole improved Raph's countryman, Fred? Surely Raph must have designs on a Brazil shirt. Will he get to that level at Manutd?

Does Kopp improve players? (I am sure we will get an Ed001 reaction to that question) . Personally I think he doesn't, he improves teams. Shaquri is no better now than he was at Stoke, their are Salah or Mane much improved over their previous clubs form. But I will say Klopp has created an environment where they are so much more effective than they were at other clubs.

Only my ideas, I am not looking to be voted Prime Minister and implement anything in my manifesto.

Radz should try and tie Raph down with a new improved longer contract, if he says no, then u kinda guess were his head is at.

25 Feb 2021 10:39:09
Good words axe. Concerning Raph it would be absolute madness to let him go this summer for ”ANY” price. He is a very special player for Leeds United at this moment in time. Whatever money you get for him now you would not replace this player like for like or better. I would even go as far to say there is no player in the world who can replace him for how he slots in seamlessly into Bielsa’s play.
Our Chairman is an extremely ambitious man in what he wants to create for his club, I think Ralph’s ambitions meets the club he plays for. It’s my estimation he’s not going to leave anytime soon.

25 Feb 2021 10:40:40
Axe for PM!

25 Feb 2021 11:10:43
It dosent matter if klopp ole or Guardia improve players. They play in Europe. And win titles.
We will get there but in Ralph’s contract timeframe I’m not sure.
Simple economics.
We signed him for $17 and could sell for over $50.
He is brilliant I agree. But ambitious
It’s a shame but if they come calling. He will go.

Spot on OP
Radz, Marathe and Leeds must hold firm this summer : No sale of Raphinia this summer.

And certainly if/ when Raphinia is eventually sold Leeds, Radz and Marathe must be savvy and ONLY do so if they get top dollar for Raph.

Man U paid £80 million for a very ordinary Harry Maguire so media valuation of £60 million for Raphinia is considerably less than his huge talent and potential.

He is just as good if not better than £110 million rated Sancho and so Leeds and Radz should not even consider any offer unless it were £100 million plus this summer. Clubs like Leicester Brighton Brentford, Bournemouth never sell their players for less than top dollar, Leeds must do likewise

Next summer 2022 is the earliest Leeds should consider offers for Raph.

25 Feb 2021 12:07:11
Aus I wouldn't want you as Leeds Chairman with your considerable under valuation of Raphinia . £50 million is nothing near his talent.

Forget that Leeds got Raph for an absolute steal at £17 million.

Leeds need to be savvy and tough they clearly have a HUGE asset in Raphinia who is as good or better than Sancho valued at £110 million. by his club.

Hey guys hope your all well, haven’t being over to torment ye in a while😀 looking forward to the weekend? Reading the above post I have to agree about raph, class player and well worth 100 million if that’s what sancho is worth raph is a much better player in my opinion, have watched him quiet a bit since Xmas you have a gem on your hands and all us smaller clubs need to stick to our guns and get top dollar if big guns come calling for our best players. looks like we have no jack this weekend I’m gutted it’s going to be a tough slog without our best player.

25 Feb 2021 15:52:06
Hi Whack possibly a very obvious question how do you guys feel when Grealish doesn’t play? You will know from reading on here how we feel when Phillips doesn’t play for us and we genuinely don’t have a like for like replacement, so we do best we can and hope other areas of our team counter the loss.

Is the miss as significant for you?

From recollection Grealish doesn’t actually miss that many games and what is your prediction for the game?

I think there will be goals from both teams but actually think there’s only going to be one game in it, oh and pack climbing boots for our pitch.

25 Feb 2021 16:16:43
Hi Whacky Backy yes definitely looking forward to it.

As ever first goal is crucial
my score prediction the mighty Leeds United 2 vs ye Aston Vile 1.

25 Feb 2021 16:18:55
Villa will defend, a lot. But seriously Villa have some very good weapons in their squad, Ollie Watkins will always be a concern for me when they try to catch us on a break. Think Cash is injured as well but Elmohamady replaces who is a tough defender. They’ll be difficult to break down, but without Grealish, I can only see a win for us, even without our talisman KP.

25 Feb 2021 16:28:59
We beat billia without Phillips last time right? And saints game went well didn’t it

It ain’t down to Phillips but belisa if he goes mental and plays everyone in wrong positions we will lose but if bubs gets it right I’ll be very confident

As for raph he is a game changer and proving it in a middle of the table leauge and in top flight anything less than 80 millio is cheap in today’s market. Gone are our days of selling for cheap to pay for bates flat in Monico.

25 Feb 2021 19:16:27
Berm just be quiet now please about Phillips, it’s absolutely nonsense.

25 Feb 2021 20:16:14
Hey whack - we need to win just so you can't come on and give us abuse for the rest of the season! Think it will be close but without Grealish think we will edge it.
