Well this very much looks like deal done for DJ, and I for one am extremely happy with this deal.
Price is about right for the player all considering and i'm absolutely sure that with with his mind spinning acceleration along with the speed of Raph, Harrison and Bamford, the opposition dare not blink.
I think for the doom monger neg heads nothing will please you because you will want to prove your point that Bielsa doesn’t know what he’s doing, Radz is tight fisted and has no ambition for the club and finally someone like Dan James is too expensive and doesn’t fit in the team.
Shake yer heads fellas, your in a coma!
This for me potentially can give us that 7th or 6th spot at the end of season.
Barring any last minute shenanigans, which I don’t see this time, Radz and Orta should be congratulated and the signing Of DJ to Leeds should be celebrated.
Fantastic news.

Dan James was that club’s player of the month for August 2019, with 3 goals, then their coaching staff set about their work….

Bielsa can help him rediscover what he had when they signed him from Swansea, then make him better….

31 Aug 2021 08:28:21
I think most of us were saying that we need to strengthen in key areas, notably CM and we should be adding players to show we have ambition and hopefully keep hold of our better players. James signing shows some ambition at least but I would have preferred us to spend the pittance we have on an area where we need strengthening rather than panic buying a round peg for a square hole because results are proving that the squad isn't actually strong enough as it is (which we have been saying for the last 4 months) . That said, IF Raph or Harrison can effectively move inside, IF Foreshaw can regain his fitness and prove effective in the PL therefore adding strength and IF Klich and crucially Phillips can stay fit we could do ok. Even with James, however, I very much doubt 6th or 7th is achievable but what say you to a £50 charity bet on the subject OP? Winner chooses the charity.

31 Aug 2021 08:42:30
Is Dan James really better than Harrison or Ralphina? Another player expected to play out of position? Seems madness that we haven't brought another cm player.

31 Aug 2021 09:00:23
It looks fairly obvious that Raph will take a more central role which he tends to do from time to time. It does look like Rodrigo will be more confined to the bench, in all fairness he hasn’t really adapted to the number 10 position but will be a great weapon to have on the bench.

Mezzer - I’m pretty sure you will have been among the many rightly saying that we needed more strength in depth on the wings, as Costa and Poveda were, for whatever reason just not performing to the required level. Poveda has been loaned out and while many of us are hopeful that Summerville will have an impact during this season, Costa’s form has not improved to date. Are you seriously suggesting we do not need a better additional option on the wings.

Alf - it’s hardly panic buying, Bielsa has wanted DJ signed for the last three years.

31 Aug 2021 10:00:38
notice Alf that OP very quiet on the £50 charity bet and how OP has slipped in the word ' potentially' for his top 6 finish prediction, earlier this window he was far more definitive : not really convinced is he.

31 Aug 2021 10:13:58
Baz, don't go backwards, keep to the programme, I know it's baby steps but those positive posts show that your making so much progress.

31 Aug 2021 10:49:48
Our counter attacks are going to set the pitch on fire! SPEEEEEED!

31 Aug 2021 10:49:57
Baz, I have faith in Bielsa and his charges to make that European spot, I don’t sit on the fence with where I am on Bielsa’s Leeds United, my good money is on us finishing 6th this season already. I don’t like to say it but fans do moan a lot, perhaps for some clubs fans it’s for a good reason. Seriously what do we have to moan about ?
just look back at where we’ve been!

31 Aug 2021 11:16:20
Clue, I have said we need more strength in depth in the past but never about wingers. I've been more than happy with Raph and Harrison, LB, and CM and even Striker over the past season I have called for. I would have rather Bielsa blood some of the promising players like summerville than go for James.

31 Aug 2021 11:19:36
OK OP fair comment.

31 Aug 2021 11:55:37
Mezz Good post.

31 Aug 2021 12:22:50
So are we on then OP? Don't get me wrong, I would be overjoyed making my £50 payment to a charity of your choosing so its a win win for me.

{Ed001's Note - have any of you thought that maybe he doesn't have £50 to spend right now? It is disgraceful to try and bully someone into making a bet like this, especially at this kind of time when so many people have no money. I know I couldn't afford to bet £50 right now and if I did I wouldn't be wasting it on a bet like this, I would just give it to a charity instead of being an arse.}

31 Aug 2021 12:25:41
£27m seems a lot to pay for someone to sit on the bench, doesn't it? Especially as the majority of our team aren't even worth half of that figure.

31 Aug 2021 13:12:47
Not trying to be an arse or a bully Ed just wanting OP to have the courage in his convictions. Take your point not everyone has £50 to spare so fair enough I can accept a lower amount or just a sportsman's bet but gambling is part and parcel of the sport we follow so didn't really see offering a friendly bet where a charity benefits as being particularly bullying.

{Ed001's Note - offering is one thing, but to have you and Baz continually push him to make it is another.}

31 Aug 2021 13:47:59
Fair enough Ed my apologies. I meant no disrespect or to try and bully anyone.

{Ed001's Note - sorry I may be a bit sensitive about this on here because there is a guy on the Forest site who has been very open about his gambling problems and I would hate to see anyone else go down that route.}

31 Aug 2021 14:20:25
I too take your point Ed001 on finances . Sportsman bet for a £1 is fine

I merely posted once that he had not responded. Is that ' continually' pushing someone?

{Ed001's Note - like I said, I was probably being over sensitive.}

31 Aug 2021 15:25:55
I am a huge hater of gambling firms and the way they destroy lives and it actually embarrasses me that our main sponsor is one such blood sucking corporate monster so completely understand that Ed. Hence a charity bet so nobody profits but a good cause, however, I can see that anyone being goaded to gamble what they don't have is an unacceptable situation so you were right to jump on it Ed. Apologies to OP as well for my thoughtlessness.

{Ed001's Note - no problem alf, it is something that shouldn't really cause any harm but sadly sometimes it can. But thank you for apologising mate, though I do apologise too for being so ott.}
