I'll be amazed if Monk does not sign.

Apparently photographed with loads of Leeds fans at the Warrington fight last weekend, mingling in about it all, having his name sung around the arena.

Radrizzani's not gonna rock the boat so soon.

Surely our chances of Bartley joining Leeds on a permanent basis is imminent after Swansea avoided relegation from the premiership

Just hope we had a fee agreed if he was to sign, otherwise they'll be looking for more than they wanted last season, after the season he's just had.

I've seen the name Victor Alvarez(no not Power Man!) mentioned on twitter, 24 year old left back who worked with Clotet at Espanyol, out of contract this summer too

I would quite like Joe Bryan from Bristol City as Taylor's replacement.

Can't recall seeing him play although he's made nearly 100 appearances in the championship for Bristol City

Like Ayling we could pick him up quite cheaply I guess

Think we need 3 marquee signings in the summer:
2 wingers and a midfielder who is brilliant all round and can play in any of the central midfield positions.
Would also like to see us add some good squad players as well:
Alex Cairns (specifically Alex Cairns as well have been so impressed with him at Fleetwood brilliant back up option to Green)
1 defender who can fill in at centre back or full back like a Charlie Mulgrew when the others get injured.
1 striker

Cooper, Diagouraga, Dallas, Silvestri and Antonsson should all be sold imo. I think we could get at least £2-3 million from selling all 5. Would possibly add a few more players in but I guess that depends on who we bring in but either way those 5 should be sold imo.
Also a keen Barcelona supporter since 2004-2005 (when they were average.)

I really wonder about some people, we only just missed out on the Play offs mainly due to squad size, what should we do in the summer??

Sell half the squad.


WTF??

If we fail to get Bartley,

Aden Flint seems to be highly regarded and the type of player we would want, anyone seen him play?

Mav, the bulk of the squad isn't good enough outside a core of around 15 (including the loanees). We need better in the team and on the bench. I'd retain Cooper and Dallas but the rest of those suggested as surplus can go as far as I'm concerned

Wow this would be incredible, £4 million for Howson is a great deal.

Should never been sold in the first place by Bates. Jonny didn't want to leave his boyhood club but Ken had other ideas on his future !

Would love it if Jonny came back home :-D
