McGurk transfer done. Also James Debayo, England U-15 international defender from Watford joins our academy. Rumours that Kiko will be joining a La Liga club on season long loan next week. That'll make room for Emi as Meslier understudy 😆.

One can always dream George 😂😂.


2.) 09 Jul 2021 16:51:10
Yes Whack, it’s probably what Emi dreams about every night - the chance of working with Bielsa at Leeds.


3.) 09 Jul 2021 21:37:18
If they love him so much why do u not have a bunch of Argentinian’s in your squad? I don’t buy into the thinking that MB could make him a better keeper, Mellier is naturally talented, kiko is not and that’s why he got the chop. however there is no doubting that MB could make outfield players better and his system/ style is very good.


4.) 10 Jul 2021 09:01:37
Whack - the reason there aren’t lots of Argentinians in our squad is because we haven’t gone in for them. We only go for those players who fill a current squad requirement, with the attributes Bielsa requires wants and are felt to be good value in the current market. A few examples might help your understanding here. We could have gone for Buendia, but didn't as we don’t need anyone in that position, and he was overpriced, particularly for a player who would only have been a backup. We could have gone for Martinez but he was seeking a move from the Gunners to become first choice keeper, and we were backing Meslier for that position. We may or may not have enquired about Rodrigo De Paul, he was rumoured to want the move, but the asking price would have been too high.


5.) 10 Jul 2021 13:09:10
I see where your coming from mate I do and it’s a good business plan, I guess the point I’m making is that if the most important thing for these players would be getting the chance to play under someone like MB so in theory they would accept smaller wages making the deals more sustainable and suiting your structure, but in reality all these players care about is money at the end of the day (with a small number of exceptions) hence why 99% of players will choose the club offering the most money and the only time the manager will affect the players decision between 2 clubs is if both packages are pretty similar. It’s my thinking that they work off a list in their head kind of thing…
1. Money
2. Chance of winning trophies
3. Regular starts
4. League/ location
5. Possibly the manager/ playing style
I think maybe 2 and 3 could swap places in some instances as some players happy to play bit part roles, I’m interested to see your thinking on that list, or add in a couple more things to the equation but I don’t think money will not be on anyone’s number 1, I’m not talking about the likes of Philips for example staying loyal to the club he grew up at, the scenario is 2 clubs attempting to buy a certain player, what do u guys think?


6.) 10 Jul 2021 23:25:15
I agree with 1 and 2 but if there is a decent manager like Pep, Klopp or Bielsa I think manager would be third. If its a run of the mill manager then yes I agree very low priority.


 

 

04 Jul 2021 15:11:11
Junior Firpo reportedly now in Leeds ahead of his forthcoming medical but quarantining. Bielsa has probably ordered him to watch every game of last 3 seasons as preparation. May as well use time profitably.

1.) 04 Jul 2021 20:42:18
That or spend the next 6 days in the gym.


2.) 04 Jul 2021 23:27:14
Alf He's quarantining. It would have to be an inbuilt gym in his hotel room.


3.) 05 Jul 2021 00:28:04
What is the quarantine situation for him?
Is he coming from Spain or the DR?


4.) 05 Jul 2021 06:34:45
I'm sure the club could get him a place with a gym if they wanted to George.


5.) 05 Jul 2021 09:36:08
The quarantine situation is a joke, it’s 10 days but if you pay for a pcr test on day 5 and it’s clear your free to leave the quarantine! Basically if you pay matt Hancock’s mates company your free to go corruption at its finest.


6.) 05 Jul 2021 14:26:47
I'm at day 3 of my quarantine.


 

 

03 Jul 2021 15:14:19
Sean McGurk, midfielder and free agent formerly of Wigan Athletic, close to joining us allegedly. Fee likely to be settled by tribunal. Under 24 compensation owed to development club. Will link up with old pal Gelhardt.

GeorgeIntegrityWhitebread

1.) 03 Jul 2021 23:24:31
How much did we offer to buy him for last year?


2.) 04 Jul 2021 11:50:24
Probably about £25.


3.) 04 Jul 2021 14:39:47
🇨🇦 Half a mill as I recall.


4.) 04 Jul 2021 15:08:37
I thought it was around there. Our patience could save a few hundred thousand then.

Liverpool reportedly interested in signing Paddy Van Bamigoal.

05 May 2021 05:36:41
LUFC reportedly interested in signing Dutch U-21 winger Noa Lang from Ajax currently on loan at Club Brugge. Could be a tough signing for Orta to seal as there's bound to be a flood 🤣💦 of interest in him.

GeorgeIntegrityWhitebread

1.) 05 May 2021 12:52:15
Not again.


2.) 05 May 2021 13:10:21
14 goals and 8 assists in 24, can play ST, LW and RW, still only 21. Ticks a lot of boxes. £20m valuation that puts me off a bit because the Belgian league isn't a top league so he could flatter to deceive.

Yup it was very naughty George.


 

 

31 Jul 2021 11:52:19
Interesting to read the Villa banter meltdown as Baz would describe it over the imminent loss of Jackie G. Sure we'd be the same if next summer it happens to us with KP. I'm actually expecting such next summer. Difficult to turn down £100m.

GeorgeIntegrityWhitebread

1.) 31 Jul 2021 12:20:54
You can’t expect the top players to not want to play for top team and Europe. If we don’t qualify next season. You can see Phillips opting to go and don’t blame him. As long as not to the s manc. Don’t think he’d do that.
But if diver worth 100. that's put kal at about 125 minutes reckon.


2.) 31 Jul 2021 13:29:32
Actually George there have been two recent meltdowns on the Vile banter site :
1) the Jerkish going to Citeh speculation
2) VD, Whacky and a few others also having a meltdown for VD being labelled every synonyms of dim by the ED.


3.) 31 Jul 2021 14:58:42
Sounds about right.
I know lots of brummies.
Bless.


4.) 31 Jul 2021 15:41:46
Dim for asking if JWP being left out of Southampton preseason friendly had anything to do with impending transfer? Sounds a bit drastic to me mate, players always get left out if there are deals on the table in case they get injured.


5.) 31 Jul 2021 16:10:42
yes Whack lad and it was the meltdown after that initial point which were particularly amusing lol.


 

 

30 Jul 2021 23:31:16
Seems we may already have our upgrade on Helder with Summertime who played well again today. Means we save money too. Time to sell HC and use proceeds toward central midfielder.

Fleetwood hardly Man Utd tho George. Let's not get too carried away.

Shades of Brendan with Cressy firm header against the Mac today.

Baz You must be quaking at the prospect of your public nudity in the summer of 2022. Erling was recently spotted wearing LUFC 💛💙 training gear. Furthermore, given our spending restraint in the window thus far, I'd say our strategy is to conserve resources until we can bid realistically for him next year.

GeorgeIntegrityWhitebread

1.) 30 Jul 2021 00:33:07
We would have to be champ league qualifiers for us to get him and unless 2-3 more quality additions now. That’s a bridge too far I think.


2.) 30 Jul 2021 00:35:40
So Erling has a soft spot for Leeds United after all :

- Erling being born in Super City of Leeds,

- his dad Alfie doing Super Leeds United proud as a player,

- Erling wanting to play with the best midfielder in the world KP ( close your eyes on that one Bermondsey )

That said the chances of it happening next summer are fat and zero

BUT if you want a sure thing bet Georgie put your mortgage and the wife's jewellery on Whiteman having secured his season ticket for his beloved Aston Villa this season ( guaranteed sure thing )


3.) 30 Jul 2021 06:08:30
Aus is right. A prerequisite to landing Erling shall be CL qualification. Gives us something to aim for. It's only an improvement of 5 league positions. Don't know what I'd relish more. Erling's unveiling as a Leeds player or Baz's unveiling in Leeds.


4.) 30 Jul 2021 07:09:42
Phone a friend George.
I know what fence I’m sitting on.


5.) 30 Jul 2021 08:48:16
I think we’d alllove Haaland at Leeds, and no harm in dreaming big (so long as you stay within budget whilst you’re getting there - don’t want to be stocking up the goldfish bowl again) .

A slightly more realistic prospect could be our continued rise up the table and European football by the time Erling’s little cousin becomes a regular with Molde and gets on the fringes of the senior Norway squad - enabling us to get him through the post-Brexit regs like Klaesson.


6.) 30 Jul 2021 13:18:39
As much as I’d love Haaland to join us next season, his wage demands of a reported £500k per week will never come from us! Unfortunately there’s more chance platting poo than signing Erling next summer.


7.) 30 Jul 2021 18:02:20
Never happening. Simple.


8.) 30 Jul 2021 23:26:55
Me I've read he only wants £295k a week so maybe it's doable. 😆.

Alf Your post a touch disrespectful methinks. Orta's budget is decided by Radz and Paraag. They're probably being financially prudent with the upcoming redevelopment of ER obviously not being done for free or on the cheap. Don't think there's been many second season since promotion PL clubs who can or have just flashed £30m odd on a player. I welcome this approach and the last I checked Kent will undoubtedly cost around £20m so unsure about the legitimacy of your gripe.

Baz Why the alarm? He's meant to be the cream of the crop youth wise and there's seemingly a bidding war for him. Hope we get him.

Cluey Gotts and Huggins season long loans and offer to pay their wages plus £7m cash probably the offer to make.

Alf Would be a very shrewd signing and will surely cost us in the £7m region.

Loveaway This is why I've argued for years footballers of this status aren't really employees, they're more like assets. In a normal work environment, you'd be taken through a formal disciplinary procedure and probably sacked once things went too far. It's all ridiculous because we know Spurs are soon going to take the money. You can't force a person to work or work for you even if it's in their contract. If the player won't play, you may as well sell because the alternative is no player and no money.

🇨🇦 and Clueless good replies. The player I really want to see come in is Koopmeiners. My remaining targets would be:
Nkolou
Galan
O'Brien
Koopmeiners

Think Lang would upset the dressing room. I believe Summertime is almost ready and can step up.

Ealing I think there may be a slight question mark over Huggins' attitude. He may feel he warrants more first team minutes than he's been getting or promised.

As Baz will testify, I like him a lot as a player but he may get loaned out for the season. Said all along but for some reason Gummie disagreed with me, we need 2 LBs. Maybe Galan? Btw who is Raphael? Does he play for us? Wasn't he a painter? Not Billy. 😂.
