Man City, Villa, Forest and Bristol City fans to.

Most think its hilarious.

Whatever the EFL do they will be critical comments.

Frank and some pundits should have just let this go.

Dont question the mans integrity :oops:
Well that's got the many club forums buzzing

They love Bielsa :love:

Interesting comment:

"I have zero inside info & no real/fake WhatsApp screen shots but from a number of years experience of negotiating financial deals (not in football) if either party gets a feel that the other is a tad desperate then lastminute.com changes to the original "agreed but not yet signed" deal is not unusual - particularly around fees, timing of payments, conditions etc.

So FWIW my take is the Lids starting smelling blood in the water once DJ was up with them & starting to push on the terms believing we'd cave, at the same time we were progressing on the exits for Bony/Montero/Carroll + a couple of the kids plus I suspect some of the online social media 'noise' was being picked up those changes/developments created some concerns & we decided to pull the plug & take the flak & hope that DJ can be placated by GP.

Risky approach but if Leeds were pushing the loan fee to June & accepting DJ's wages saving would be pretty small probably the right call as long as DJ can be reabsorbed into the Group effectively - the fact GP had little/no involvement in what went on will help, as will the fan support he will get over the next 4 months."

The trouble is that Swansea did the same shafting trick with Fer so that would seem to blow that argument out of the water. My take was that Swansea kept moving the goalposts, knowing we were really keen to sign, in the hope that they could get the other deals done as they would much rather keep James than the others. They knew we were keen and that they would still be able to do a deal with us if the other deals fell through. This is why they simply ignored us late on as once the medical was passed they would have had to have a) accepted the deal or b) rejected the deal. By simply not answering the phone they could keep both options open.

Fair comments this time I think.
They won't make the play offs though. Too many better sides above them
