Just had a message from a mate this morning. He has had a Leeds scout/ employee into his workplace and they got talking.
He confirmed LUFC have been talking to Gary Cahills agent recently.
He also said he expected either Phillips or Roofe to go as we need the money!
Sounds drastic. WTF 🤪.

Not saying you haven't met a scout

Not saying you didn't get chatting

But how does a scout know the finances of Leeds United Football Club?

I just don't understand all the seemingly "known information" regarding a multi million pound business.
Why does a guy who can create a multi million pound business, and fortune, suddenly need to tell everyone his financial status. LUFC are not a plc so he doesn't need to tell anyone but HMRC squat

If Roofe goes, so be it. His conversion rate wasn't brilliant last year. Billy Sharp scored more, from less chances. Bamford's isn't much better but it's no worse so I can't say we will be any different there.

If Phillips goes, so be it. He was made by Biesla, from a very average Championship attacking midfielder. I can't believe that he can't find another one. From the videos I have seen I can see White in that position

Pontus went, fair enough. He is nearly 30 so he should be looking to play at the highest standard he can before it's too late. Not sure why he went to Brentford tho

O'Connor and Halme have been sold, fair enough. If they were going to get first team with us then they deserve to find it elsewhere

the same can be said for Wilks. Do I really want him coming back and hindering the progress of Kun and Edmondson? NO
Could he really compete with Henandez, Harrison, Clarke, Costa and Roberts for a wing spot? NO

So far we have only sold one player that was a guaranteed starter last year.

Back to the hot tub for me.

Hi Axe.
I am not saying this guy knows all the financials of a multi million pound business and I am sure he doesn’t but I am sure people around Elland rd will know roughly whether the club they work for has money to spend or not.
Anyway all I am doing is trying to help by sharing a little snippet of info mainly about Cahill to all of you on this site. Enjoy your day and the hot tub! MOT.

Cheers for the snippets.

I re-read my post, it wasnt supposed to sound accusatory as I wrote it so sorry if that's how you read it. I just get perplexed with all the finance talk. I understand that an employee might get a vibe of a business not doing as well as it has. Perks like free coffee and fruit go missing etc etc. I just find others on here label owners as thieves because they are prudent.
You have definitely not said that your post is a more reasonable look at the situation

Regarding Cahill, I could see him do a brilliant job for any lower premiership side, let alone a Championship one. He is definitely a leader, quite easily captain material.
