Heard from my mate Trev, who it should be pointed out supports that Devon lot. Trev drinks with Pete who owns the removal Company that moved Ben White from his Sussex home in Worthing to London.

Rather worryingly Ben Whites Dad assures Pete, through Trev back to me onto you guys (you see it’s solid) that KP assures Ben White he plans to rekindle their bromance at Arsenal.

Hey don’t shoot the four messengers just from Mr White senior.

We should have paid the 50 mil, Arsenal did after all we paid 30 mil for sad James . Rads should pull all the stops out to get him to sign.

Wow! Reports that Leeds turned down a last minute transfer deadline bid for Rodrigo from Barcelona!

Reports Club declined due to the “scatter gun” nature of the bid.

Fair to say Rodrigo hasn’t worked as hoped due to a number of reasons and we may have missed out on an opportunity to recoup transfer funds for a player who would most likely have jumped for a return to Spain especially to Barcelona.

Classof92

1.) 16 Sep 2021 15:27:59
Saw some reports suggesting Barcelona wanted a loan deal - presumably because they’re strapped for cash at the moment. Other reports saying Bielsa wanted Rodrigo to stay here.

Either way, if it was last minute, we wouldn’t have had time to bring in a replacement, either at striker or CAM. So, despite his patchy form, accepting the deal would have weakened our squad depth further.


2.) 18 Sep 2021 07:19:19
Yes it was a loan offer by all accounts but would have left us even lighter in terms of our squad and maybe we would still have been paying a portion of his wages. Also some sources reporting at the time it was only semi serious.


 

 

31 Aug 2021 16:37:26
Confirmed at last, I’m delighted we have got James, think that will give lots of options for the CAM role.

Shame Costa move seems to have stalled, there is a player in there but truth be told we cannot rely on him, think James will be far more consistent under Bubs tutelage, happy!

Me too Class! Investment not to be sneered at, and clearly MB sees something special in the lad. Our counter attacks are going to be rapid!


2.) 31 Aug 2021 22:47:01
And he is just 21. Wales international. Played in the Champions league. Scum to be fair have great players at his position. And he got quite a lot of minutes in this squad.
Ole is a piece of s**t manager. Imagine he would be in charge of our team… we would get relegated last year.
Bielsa can make any average player look more than decent. And if he has a grain of talent (and he does) he can transform into a great player.
I’ve heard that some scum supporters are really gutted that he is going as they see his high potential.


3.) 01 Sep 2021 17:59:44
One of the things DJ said after signing was that he was looking forward to learning every day. That could be seen both as reflecting positively his expectations of the coaching environment he’s joining under Bielsa, and casting a little shade on the one he’s just left.

Hi Martyn, hope you’re well Pal.

Sold our place in Tenerife as red tape was becoming a nightmare, but off to Portugal in September then hopefully Tenerife in November to visit some old friends.

You got any visits planned Martyn?
Stage safe and well 👍.

Arrived in las americas late Saturday, should have been in Antalya but still on red list, watching England and Leeds games including rhinos on Friday in buzz bar, small quiet friendly little bar with best breakfast I’ve found on the island, oh and it has a kebab shop next door too 😉.


7.) 07 Sep 2021 21:36:40
That’s quality Martyn
Don’t know the buzz bar from memory but there is a few of them in LA

Glad to hear they have all the essentials though, have a great time mate.

Not a time to mourn KP leaving, but a time to rejoice what fabulous service he has given to his beloved Leeds United.

Such fine margins in professional football, as juniors Ryan Edmonson was on an equal footing as Kal, but was it Steve Evans believing in the young KP then Bielsa saying he could make him the best CDM in the league England (and centre half, really! ) before he even joined us.

Sliding doors, but spilt milk, yesterdays chip paper etc…etc…. we move forwards and hopefully don’t skimp gambling on an unknown, but sign genuine quality like Camara or even Gallagher as a replacement.

And remember a KP like for like replacement may not be even applicable under Jesse’s new way of playing.

Post of the night to date was Cork who highlighted that as incredible a player Kalvin is he’s an even better man a credit to his mum and beloved Nan.

Classof92, am afraid they will not happen to attract quality they need to see that the team has quality we seen to build players then let them go, just like Phillips he’s seen quality in the team that’s why he’s moved on. Sign of out times.

Games lost now isn’t it?

Paul Pogba has completed his own fly on the wall docu series to be shown called the ‘Pogementary’

In which he discusses on the telephone his obvious disgust at Devon United derisory contractual offer to have him stay longer at Torquay with his agent. (Sadly now departed Mino Raiola)

Fair enough though, it was only £290,000 a week!

Pogba says it was an ‘insult a bluffs a nothing offer, wonder what the legend that was the great John Charles, earnt by comparison?

Whilst I happen to think Barcelona are an abhorrent football club in all their football dealings,

I don’t have a problem with their rep coming over, irrespective of this being true or not, it may help mobilise other interested parties keen on Raphinia’s signature, which in turn generates a potential bidding war.

Of course I’d much rather have Raphinia leave for next to nothing at the end of his contract, as two more years tv money from the bottomless epl trough would surpass any likely transfer fee.

But it does feel a case of ‘when’ not if for the Raphinia saga, so why not ‘drum up’ as much noise, interest, money as possible and buy two three quality replacements.

Remind ourselves that none of us really knew of Raphinia prior to joining and many decried 17 million spent on this unknown player.

Even VO gets it right once in a while, sure overall we would not suffer especially as Raphinia struggled more with added defensive duties as season went on.

Just for you Baz, it was clearly very emotional for Pablo, I realise he wanted to retire to where it had all begun for him, but think he would be a brilliant addition to the Leeds coaching staff of youth manager.


4.) 03 Jun 2022 08:45:26
Pablo was the type of player we need now but a younger version that we had of him and my regrets are also that I wished we had him in his younger prime.
Pablo was still a great player for us but at the twilight of his career I think MB could likely tell the pace in the Prem would have been too much for him and Pab’s was too proud to play a bit part for Leeds.

Saw similar article Cork, but added the double than expected figure included salary and all transfer fees

He’s played wingback as well as full back but attacker is stretching it too far.

On a side note how can Everton be linked with players this transfer window? EPL are a joke, gawd knows what Burnley fans think of them getting away with grossly exaggerated FFP accounts.

His stats look incredible Clu!

This is a litmus test for VO in that he’s supposed to cost very little money but there is already the Brentford connection, however, he also played a couple of seasons under Jesse.

Come on Victor let’s show real intent with action over words this year.

Clu are you really telling me some of these player agents invent stories to further inflate their already scandalous fees?

Not sure I’ll ever to be able to think about the noble football agent ever again.

God forbid FIFA would do anything meaningful but banning agents would be a good start or significantly capping fees would be a start.

Genius agai……. err I mean repeated Martyn

Usually we don’t have two Bob to spend, and are linked with multiple players, with the KP money burning a hole, gossip press having the time of their lives.

Whilst I think it’s the right call OP, still believe Raphinia will go, not a sensible decision, but I think the disappointment of the Barcelona transfer not happening will make him (eventually) take the next best option.

Wrong thing to do, but think he’s an emotional guy that acts on impulse, remember when he first joined us he was furious that his transfer fee was less than his original buyout clause……but he still joined us.

As to criticism of KP fee and Radz ( I still thought it was a little low, £50 mill minimum) but circumstances were against us with KP wanting the move and contract situation, plus this talk of West Sham and Villa prepared to pay higher than Citeh, Kalvin wouldn’t have joined them over Citeh.

So Radz (remember for him it’s not just a view or an opinion but his OWN money) I believe he took a pragmatic business decision.

Had KP been forced to stay I think we could have expected 100% effort until his last game.

Sadly I differ with peoples views that Raphinia will perform for us (due to the impending World Cup) he’s going to get picked by Brazil irrespective based on previous performances and I fear he will do the bare minimum and that’s not someone you want sulking around this relatively new team to kickstart our season, again take away his penalties he’s not a natural goalscorer. But accept me made some critical assists in our run in.

So purely based on Raphinia’s personality I’d prefer a fully committed Greenwood or Summerville than half arsed Raphinia.

So to that end, I actually hope he’s sold and a quality replacement is bought in his place asap. Clearly the guy doesn’t want to stay.

As a legend who changed everything for us used to say… Side before self!

Seems a low price even with add ons but clearly Kal wanted the move and best of luck to him, hadn’t heard mention of the young Citeh midfielder before though, Dario Gyabi who scored 9 goals in 18 games from midfield last season, althletic announcement

City will pay £42m up front with potential bonuses worth £3m. 18-year-old midfielder Darko Gyabi will move to Elland Road in a separate £5m deal.

Sure Mr Kinnear has it all in hand Baz, this is where he always excels. (Not! )

But I do agree with you, that we’re the only team that haven’t said anything (expected values) for either Raphinia or Phillips to the press, the loyal supporters. Rather than gossip of whispers to other agents.

Rumours about JWP straight away Southampton said we want £75million minimum.

Many things Radz has got right in his relatively short tenure to date, but supporter engagement, specifically meaningful communication has not been one of them actually it’s been woeful.

But Kinnear is an embarrassment and tends to block his mouth with his foot, whenever he actually bothers to communicate something.

Thought exactly the same Clu, although was heartened to read Leeds still part of the civil case with Burnley which calls for independent auditors to review and hopefully overturn Everton’s obvious overspend.

Didn’t have much hope in the hierarchy of the EPL allowing the sports washing with the Newcastle take over, but once again money is not the key objective for those at the top of the EPL, it’s the ONLY objective.

Roles reversed you think EPL would have permitted such flagrant breaches if it was Burnley or ourselves overspending and Everton relegated?

The saddest part is, it’s become so systemic of the EPL ways of working that we’ve all become so used to these things continually happening.
