Abrahams any good? . Not seen much of him.
They reckon $40 m. Just wondering.
Just hoping we choose maxim rather than Traore.
Maxim 20. Abraham 40 and DePaul. Make do with defence we have.

Agree0 Disagree0

If chelski accepted 40 for abraham I think radz should snap him up
Imo quality player, add Bielsa into the equation, say no more.

I watched a podcast today from Phil Hay on the Athletic that Leeds are looking for 3 ( up to 5) players the 3 main priorities were

a LB,

a CDM cover for KP

and a Rodrigo de Paul type.

Disappointingly Phil Hay indicated that Leeds weren't looking to sign another striker it certainly wasnt a priority

I don't actually rate Ambrahams in any event certainly not a £40 million player.

28 Apr 2021 15:53:58
Baz Like Richiem, I rate Abraham as well. His stats support this. However, I agree with your sentiment about him not being a £40m player. If LUFC can pick him up for around £30m, that would be good business. I think he'd do well for us.

28 Apr 2021 16:26:14
Baz I think our efforts should certainly go towards LB and RdP type but with Koch and Llorente (plus others) we have sufficient cover at DM.
I know what you are saying about Abrahams but with each of these question mark players you have to factor in the Bielsa effect.

I’m my opinion we should be looking to acquire the following -

KEEPER ( experienced back up / competition for IM, Johnstone would fit the bill )
LB
TWO MIDS ( De Paul type plus more defensive as none of our centre backs could adequately cover a long term KP injury and we can’t rely on Forshaw )
WINGER ( if we can off load HC )
STRIKER ( reckless in the extreme to go into another season hoping Bam doesn’t get a serious injury, the others are just not proven as up to covering say a three month absence ) NOT CONVINCED ABOUT ABRAHAM .

I feel we have a great opportunity in a depressed market to get the above ( may be with one or two loans to buy ) at reasonable prices and seriously challenge the top six . Even more important to kick on before either a new super league or champions league format comes in which will serve to benefit the current elite .

28 Apr 2021 18:10:43
Think Johnstone would be expensive to buy especially if he is going to sit on the bench, plus can't see us shifting Casilla either.

28 Apr 2021 18:30:15
Johnstone wouldn’t sign as a back up.

28 Apr 2021 19:37:06
Good, interesting comments from the chaps above George, Leo, Martyn but for me the key sentence comes from RHC to which I wholeheartedly agree:

' Reckless in the extreme hoping Bambam doesn't get another serious injury '

Therefore recruiting another goalscoring striker this summer is an absolute MUST, far more important than any other signing!

Spot on also RHC that Leeds really need to push on before the new champions league format

( which should also be challenged vigorously from any anti merit proposed new rule favouring the so called elite)

28 Apr 2021 20:58:19
We have backup for Bamford - 4oberts and Rodrigo.

28 Apr 2021 21:28:25
Neither are arguably good back up forcany length of time in terms of goals, assists and injury record

Roberts 7 goals in his career approaching 100 games

Rodrigo possibly so, but just 3 Leeds goals and he is not prolific in his career and is becoming ( increasingly) injury prone

We need better Alfie!

28 Apr 2021 22:35:33
I would like to see us bring in better but can't see it. If Bielsa is happy then we won't.

28 Apr 2021 23:20:00
Yes Alf that is tbe bottom line, and Phil Hay did say we aren't looking at bringing in a cf

We still have not replaced Roofe and his goals though.
