What the heck is happening at Barcelona? I've heard that they can't register Raphinia or lewendowski unless they reduce their wage bill and we have yet to get a penny from them for him . Is this right?

Mightywrighty

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona have to make space in their wage budget before they can register players..


1.) 08 Aug 2022 13:36:59
Mighty I believe they were already made to pay around 90% of the transfer up front.


2.) 08 Aug 2022 14:14:23
I’m not sure but I think that payment has to be made by the 2nd of September, hence Radz making a threat that if they don’t, legal action against Barcelona will be announced forthwith.


3.) 08 Aug 2022 14:35:51
If they pay it won't be until legally due date, they'd be stupid to do so when the money could be in their account.


4.) 09 Aug 2022 07:30:26
I think we should help them out of this mess, and buy Rapha back from them for £1.4million, a new piggy bank, plus a Nat West Savers card.


5.) 09 Aug 2022 13:43:04
Barca will very likely find a way to register these players ; however I said from the off that Radz and Co should not deal with Barca:; it asnt a good deal and receiving the funds feels like an unnecessary risk.


6.) 10 Aug 2022 12:01:09
Getting a fee in for Raph the only way we were going to spend any money this summer. All the rest of the money the club generates magically disappears into the board's back pockets.

Kalimendou deal seems to be closer . I don't really know what to make of him but the fact he is 20 means there is at least scope
For development . I'm a little annoyed we have started the season with the lack of a LB
I am delighted with the win and I think the players on the bench and the players we have coming back from injury or suspension gives me hope.

Mightywrighty

1.) 08 Aug 2022 07:52:32
Kalimuendo is a real quality player and would be a brilliant investment.

Top scout Jacek Kulig described him as "One of the most prolific U20s in Europe's top 5 leagues. "

I also have a friend who supports RC Lens who rates him very highly. Called him "a serious prospect. "

He definitely has a similar playing style to Luis Suarez, with his slick dribbling, tenacity and finishing ability being some of his best traits. The link up play between him and our current attacking players would be a thing of beauty.

Really hope we can get his signature over the line after these protracted negotiations. Would be an amazing buy.


2.) 08 Aug 2022 13:38:08
Dilli If we get him, hope you're right about him but I prefer Terrier.


3.) 08 Aug 2022 14:24:55
Dill, I’ve also a French mate who’s a RC Lens fan and likewise rates Kalimeundo very highly as a prospect.
That same French mate also told me about Raphinha before he left Rennes that he was going to be a great player for Leeds if we bought him.


4.) 08 Aug 2022 15:02:15
Good to hear OP.

I think he could be a really good signing for us, George.

I crunched some of his stats and as a 19/ 20 year old he's already had 24 goal involvements in Ligue 1, at a rate of one every 144mins.

Very promising and his style would really suit us.


 

 

27 Jul 2022 19:43:03
Seeing a rumour that we have put in an offer for left back Philip max from PSV .

Mightywrighty

1.) 27 Jul 2022 21:11:47
Old news.


 

 

04 Jul 2022 18:01:25
Italian sky sports reporter Fabrizio Romano seems to be calling Tyler Adams a done deal .
I'm sure I'll be corrected but he seems to have called a lot of deals correctly before being made official .

Mightywrighty

1.) 04 Jul 2022 21:10:03
Should fly over this week for a medical by all accounts. £20m deal.


2.) 05 Jul 2022 16:57:08
Supposedly completed his medical today I’ve read. I still want us in for Camara tho!


3.) 06 Jul 2022 18:30:33
done deal .


 

 

19 Jun 2022 17:24:52
I hope this Collins from Burnley is just paper talk . 25 million for a CB that we don't need . I'd rather play Cresswell and spend 25 on a forward.

Mightywrighty

1.) 19 Jun 2022 20:00:22
I agree mighty and a good un too.


2.) 19 Jun 2022 22:14:51
25mil seems a bit steep.


3.) 19 Jun 2022 23:04:33
Seems a lot steep for an inexperienced player currently at a relegated club. But hopefully that won’t stop the Saudis splashing out for him for their north eastern sportswashing venture.

{Ed001's Note - I hope not as he is an excellent player.}


4.) 20 Jun 2022 05:32:32
Cluey Ed001 is right. Get Uncle to bid for him. ??.


5.) 20 Jun 2022 08:33:13
George - firstly Uncle Victor would not put great store on my suggestions, and secondly buying Collins wouldn’t be a great signal to Charlie Cresswell, unless re were to sell Llorente this summer and intended moving Robin on next year

Ed1 - in that case, perhaps the Kloppmeister should go in for Collins, then loan him out to agent Gerrard, who supposedly has some interest in the lad.

{Ed001's Note - we already have too many. We really need to get rid of one rather than bring in more.}


6.) 20 Jun 2022 13:39:04
Cluey Moving on Llorente is what I had in mind but can tell JM likes him.


7.) 20 Jun 2022 19:22:12
Ed is right. Collins a real talent. Can play RB too.

So Cooper, Foreshaw, sinisterra and James should be available for selection on the weekend . Looking a the bench v wolves who stays who goes? I.

Mightywrighty

1.) 11 Aug 2022 14:21:17
Excellent bench selection dilemma illustrating the much improved QUALITY of DEPTH.


2.) 11 Aug 2022 15:44:38
Ah yes, Adam sorted it all out last season when he came back,

Imagine if we had to go to last day of season to stay up!

Scary thoughts indeed.


3.) 11 Aug 2022 15:47:11
Real competition now to get on the bench, can see Jimmy losing his spot, Helde could be ok because he covers 2 positions at the moment, but there needs to be space for Coopet.


4.) 11 Aug 2022 16:22:48
Weird because I could have sworn we bought Gyabi who looks promising. Our substitutes haven't looked this strong in 2 decades. Remarking negatively about depth at this point is an epic howler which just keeps on giving. Immediate proof was the excellent contribution made by Klich last Saturday from the bench.


5.) 11 Aug 2022 16:56:21
Well said George!


6.) 11 Aug 2022 17:17:43
Come back to me at end of season and tell me how both he + other now fringe players will have performed .

Silly comment, your basing a full season of would be performances on 20mims against wolves, when he was bang average all last season

But now once again to suit your condescending narrative, anyone who doesn't agree with you is just foolish.


7.) 11 Aug 2022 17:19:38
" proof " after 20 mins ???


8.) 11 Aug 2022 18:07:45
What Chris said.


 

 

07 Aug 2022 16:06:02
Out of the team yesterday who is likely to be replaced once everyone is back in contention to play? Or is that our current strongest team. ? Maybe Firpo at LB and Strujk back to CB?

Mightywrighty

1.) 07 Aug 2022 17:23:12
Rodrigo, I expect Aaronson to be central once Sinisterra is fit with Harrison and James fighting it out for the right midfield role.


2.) 07 Aug 2022 18:54:49
Interesting thoughts, I think Rodrigo maybe done enough to keep his place but yes with sinisterra and James coming back there is competition for places . Dallas, Ayling and foreshaw will add depth to the squad.


3.) 07 Aug 2022 19:17:57
Canada I think I be a plagiarist! Just posted same above .


4.) 07 Aug 2022 21:33:12
Or just like minded Cork!


 

 

06 Aug 2022 15:10:43
Well my enthusiasm for the season last about 6 mins.

Mightywrighty

1.) 06 Aug 2022 15:53:57
Not a true fan then. It was a freak goal. Meslier dived too soon.


 

 

05 Aug 2022 01:13:43
I'm thinking Rodrigo and James could have breakthrough seasons under Marsch, and I'm excited to see summerville, greenwood and Geldhart Archie grey this season. Genuinely think that's 6 players that were already at the squad that could be like new signings for us.

Mightywrighty

1.) 05 Aug 2022 06:24:28
Totally agree Mighty! Those young lads coming through, plus Gyabi, should be looking to cement their long term futures with us this season, and I also believe they will have an impact on where we finish! Contrary to a few, there is an excitement around this season, and the undoubted potential that these guys bring to the mix!
With Cressy back next season, we have a ready made “spine” for many years to come!


2.) 05 Aug 2022 06:42:11
I am cautiously optimistic about the upcoming season. Don’t want to get too excited in case it implodes again.
I am just frustrated that we can’t just add two more pieces of the puzzle.


3.) 05 Aug 2022 07:21:56
That’s the spirit Mighty, I like to read posts like this one, thought has to be given to the possibilities that some players will play much better under a different coach and a system which is a little different.
Those two players as you mention Rodrigo and James vastly underperformed under Bielsa, probably because they were not in their favored positions, they could surprise a lot of fans this season.
Im sure there will be some surprises and I’m very excited for it too.


 

 

04 Aug 2022 20:52:05
Looking at the team I actually think we are stronger than last season . I think Adams, Roca, Aaronson is a better midfield combo than what we put out a lot of last season, koch, foreshaw and Klich or Tyler roberts and Rasmus better than Ayling and bamford is back and Rodrigo looks like he could be revitalised . So i personally have a lot of hope.

I wouldn’t say there is an urge to replace him but he hasn’t signed a new contract and has been linked with a move away . So it’s only natural we would be looking for a replacement at this stage .

Some reports saying Javier Galan from Huesca in Spain is a done deal but I’ve seen that before, so not holding my breath till he is a Leeds shirt.

Yeah we do need another CB but you know Bielsa will likely play Ayling Strujk or Phillips at CB if needed . He has before . However in this league we can afford to put square pegs in round holes so a another CB is a must in my eyes .

I think if we get Henry then Douglas will be sold and Davis loaned out . Not sure where that leaves Dallas or alioski though but just seems a signing we don’t need .

Koch
Cabral
Rodrigo

Probably right now.

Well at 31 he probably won’t, but Bielsa got the best out of him in that first premier league season and I think he will be a useful player for us this year .

I think James could actually thrive under Marsch, i am thinking we will see more for Rodrigo and James this season than we did last season.

Based on pre season it’ll be Strujk . Recall clauses I think are quite rare so I don’t think we have one for creswell, I never read that at the time there was one.
