I thought BPF was excellent tbh, not sure I'm that happy training up a player for another team either, 1 year loan with an option to buy would be my minimum.
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"

Phil Hay saying we are in for Angus Gunn on a season loan from Man City. Good young goalkeeper. just been called up to train with the full England squad.
He'd be a great signing. Was excellent for Norwich last season.

Much prefer Gunn and BPF as my two keeping options to Felix and Lonners :tup: We would certainly have made big strides in that dept over a 12 month period, can't believe Gunn is gettiing Stockdale type money either so leave more wages in the pot for elsewhere.

Lonners is going and I don't know how much we have tied up in Felix tbh, not sure of the initial cost or what the buy out would be (4 year contract I think.) Keepers are coachable if they have the basics..and I think he has.

He clearly has some fantastic basic goalkeeping skills, shot stopping and distribution, but the he is so poor at dealing with crosses and lacks the physicality to dominate the box, he should go to a less physically sending leauge, where I hope he rediscovers his mojo, but The cahmpionship is nowhere for a keeper like him.

Who? Weidwald?

Agree but it's technique that's letting him down, his positioning is dodgy, I don't think he's that good a shot stopper..yet and his distribution is on a par with BPF imo. Send him out on loan but we're not getting our money back if we sell him and we'd probably have to pay his contract up to release him

We bought him for half a mill if I recall correctly we’ll have offers for him, I’m sure his agent has looked for him once Heck had his best moment at Leeds and dropped him for BPF

Signing Gunn would be a slap in the face to BPF, he deserves a shot at being number one. I'd rather we had experienced cover, Mark Bunn on a free maybe.

James Collins released by West Ham. I definitely think we should be looking at him, experienced leader we're missing at CB.

Newcastle apparently willing to let Adam Armstrong leave permanently.

Be a decent back up option, certainly better then Jerry.

Only just turned 21.

Over 100 career appearances already, League 1 Team of the year at Coventry few years back, scored 20 goals for them when he was on loan aged only 18 19.

9 goals last season for Blackburn.

6 goals when Heckingbottom had him at Barnsley.

Full of pace, can play right across the forward line.

Rather spend a few million on him then someone 4 years older with a worse career goalscoring average in poorer leagues.

Villa apparently will need to sell players and reduce wage bill as parachute payments are being severely lowered.

Adomah
Hogan
Kodjia
Chester
Jedinak

Would all improve us. Problem is wages would be huge, so if we could try and get a couple on loan or smaller fees and reduced wages that would be good.

Matej Vydra being considered, Bielsa is a fan.

Confirmed by Phil Hay so there is something in it.

Good to see we have a plan a, b,c etc.

We are linked with a loan move for highly rated Spurs Cb Juan Foyth.

Much as fans want Bartley, quick glance at Spurs forum, they are full of praise for Foyth.

Every Leeds fan wants a new GK apart from me, let him go for the 4 with a few x's thrown in like resale and international caps He won't be starting here next season and this way we and he gets paid.

No, I think he deserves his chance, there are 4 other positions more of a priority, the only thing I'd like to see keeper wise is a better back up.

Well, with Felix rumoured to be going to Frankfurt on a free, that leaves us with BPF and Lonergan. As the latter was almost on his way in January, we would need at least one more goalkeeper. Whether that is as first choice or backup remains to be seen. BPF looked OK, but he is without experience. If we could get a quality goalkeeper in, he isn't going to want to sit on the bench. BPF has time on his side, so I wouldn't want to see him sold.
