Re: Nicolas Gonzalez

Personally id rather spend £15-20mil on someone like Gonzalez then £20-30mil on someone like Ollie Watkins. I would argue that its as hard to get a cap for Argentina as it is for England if not harder. The list of attacking players Argentina have compared to England is probably better on paper and G...

Nicolas Gonzalez

Seems to be a link that isnt going away. Even reports that he has visited Leeds and seen around the training ground. 22 year old Argentinian international playing in Stuttgart. 14 goals in 20.7 games (minutes played taken into account) 3 assists. German 2nd division. Able to play on either wing or a...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Just thinking out loud. Could MB be a hinderence when signing players? Obviously he is a well respected coach but he also is very specific. If you dont fit his style, fitness etc absolutely perfectly then you wont play at all (JKA) or will only make the bench (Eddie) Only when he feels you do will y...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

No idea why Jansson is being mentioned. Dont know why PJ has been ridiculed by a section of our fanbase since leaving. He was brilliant for us, our best defender since being relegated, the best pure defender we have had imo (including White). White is better on the ball but purely defensively PJ was...

Re: Ben White

Something just doesn’t seem right to me. It’s as though Bielsa is willing to sacrifice spending on other areas in order to get White. I’m slightly concerned for the first time since we guaranteed ourselves promotion, okay Brighton are playing hardball over White but what about other targets and are...

Re: Ben White

Leeds fail to sign Daniel James The reaction; We have no ambition, we are cheap, why didn't we offer more more, if you want quality you have to pay for it Leeds chase Ben White hard upping their offers The reaction: Why do we keep upping our offer, we should move onto someone else, we should spread...

Re: Ben White

The sensible thing to do is move on. Go get highly rated Argentina International Lucas Martinez Quarta. Go get Juan Foyth. Go get Malang Sarr. Yes it would be nice to get White as he knows the system and did very well in the Championship but he isnt Maldini. We arent talking about the best of the be...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

The Mirror and BBC reporting that the £30mil offer being rejected is false. Hopefully it doesnt exist. Also the BBC repeating that Brighton have reiterated that Ben White is not for sale. Aside from the price the other issue is Brighton can wait. Deadline closes in October, season starts in Septembe...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Calciomercato reporting Valencia are set to sign Thiago Almada for 13.5m euros, that is £12.2m. Surely we can't ignore that? He's openly stated he wants to play for us! Ive given up on my Argentinian dream :( A LUFC team managed by an Argentinian legend full of the best young talents Argentina has ...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Tony Bloom made a lot of money playing poker. That is what he is doing now. At the end of the day Ben White is a massive risk for both clubs. £20mil+ is a huge risk for us to pay for an untested kid who could easily find playing Salah, Aguero, Vardy etc a step above him. On the other hand for Bright...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

David Anderson, Northern journalist for The Mirror reporting that we are keen on Eze but wont meet his £20mil valuation. West Ham still keen. £20mil for Eze isnt to much in the domestic market now imo, but it is overpriced like all of them. Also (not a rumour ) but rather then vastly overpaying for ...

Re: Player Profile : Jack Harrison

Ideally bench for me. Great 1st touch, works hard, but after Paddy he is the most wasteful player we have in the final 3rd. Vast vast improvement needed in the final 3rd to be Premier league class. Still wouldn't be shocked if he ended up at Left back like Dallas, thats what generally happens to ene...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Not much more than we paid for Rio and White is a more complete player than Rio was at that time and that was what 20 years ago. ? And again it depends on how the transfer fee is made up. It won't be cash on the nose. Same age i think as Rio when we signed him. Difference is Rio was a proven Premie...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Belgian media saying we made a £31mil bid for Jonathan David but he turned us down for Lille.

I find it hard to believe we offered £31mil for anybody, then again i find it hard to believe we would go over £20mil for Ben White.

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Would Bielsa have said “Get me White no matter the cost”, and Leeds want keep him happy? From reading about Marseille and Lille and Lazio. He is more likely to have a list of players he wants and he expects the club to try to get them. Properly try up to the point its unreasonable. He doesnt make d...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Apparently we are now going to bid £27mil for Ben White? If that happens with Meslier and Costa thats £50mil to have the same players as last season before we even start improving. As much as we love Ben White, £27mil is marquee wow signing money, Ben isnt that. Surely we can find someone for half t...

Breakout Star

If any of our young players are going to nail down a starting role next season who will it be? Lots of contenders. New boy Joe Gelhardt, fringe flyer Jamie Shackleton, silky dutch boy Pascal Struijk, left footed dynamo Leif Davis. Personally i think fleet footed winger Ian Poveda is the most likely....

Re: Player Profile : Adam Forshaw

Sell.

Did ok earlier this season but a midfielder who doesnt score, doesnt create and slows our play down is no use.

A slightly better Eunan O'Kane, nice guy but nothing special about Forshaw.

Apart from that, he is never fit and has never justified his £4.5mil price or £20k wages.
