Abel Hernandez

Post by Cjay » Mon Jun 04, 2018 5:18 pm

Another if thread.

Gotta keep things ticking over in the quiet months :lol:

Will look a right prune if Bielsa doesnt arrive and now Hernandez, BUT.

Sources say a signing that seemed very unlikely originally is pretty close now.

Radz leading the charge here, he met with Hernandez face to face, so this is Radz pushing this, love to know what he said.

Apparently Super Agent Mino Raiola may have played a part, apparently he is close to Abel Hernandez's representatives and may have played a part in convincing them and him (all speculation of course)

Would we be happy?
Do we need another striker to? Given Abel's very dodgy injury record.

I think he would be a good striker as long as we get another one in as well.

Whether on loan or permanent I would mind if any of our current strikers left

Big step up from what we had last season but agree with R88, we need another striker as it's all our eggs in one basket otherwise.

Not going to get excited until I see him holding up the shirt. From when I've seen his goals for Hull, he runs off through balls, so Pablo and Saiz will be licking their lips. Not sure what Roberts is like, Grot should be loaned out, Ekuban sold. I think we'll need an aerial threat too, when we face the hoofball teams.
Hernandez, Roofe, Roberts, New. Then Dalby, Kun and Edmondson in the u23.

He has a twitter that he has good news soon, wearing white too!! Lol, looks like we’ll know either way soon.
What a statement of intent we’re making if it does happen! Radz is showing his hand after being pi$$ed at wolves last year, here’s hoping...

Big move if it happens, he's much better than what we have. But he IS injury prone, that's a worry for me.

If negotiations with Abel are very close then does anyone else think Bielsa must be very close to?

Bielsa doesnt seem like the sort of guy who would accept a club spending a huge amount (wages wise) on a striker he hasnt approved, if he is being asked for his opinion on transfers then things must be well advanced.

I think whoever we appoint, Bielsa or otherwise, Radz has had a re-think about the sort of player that we need to get us out of this league and has understood that what he thought was enough before wasn't both in terms of quality, experience of playing here and in no small part costs.

I think we have zero chance of Hernandez the board know it but are clinging on to a hope so that the fans remain positive.

Imagine the scenes.

& as it turns out neither the A Team of Bielsa & Hernández were introduced, nor the b team mentioned above.

I suspect, on both A team counts, the longer it goes without being confirmed the less likely it's going to happen. Tonight would've been perfect to parade a new messiah, even worth agreeing to one or two expensive contract clause addons just to take advantage of the added publicity of the occasion, but alas, we're still waiting - maybe it's a contractual thing with ITV that w couldn't hijack the event - but it would've made for great TV for Bielsa to have been confirmed so can't see ITV objecting.

Keeping my fingers crossed, but the cynic in me says it's not gonna happen.

It wasn't the Leeds team playing tonight. Technically, Elland Road was in the hands of the FA. Still not given up hope - the players are not back in until 25th June.

Inclined to agree, longer it drags on the less likely it is on both counts.

Cant parade a new messiah who is in Mexico and has to be in Mexico apparently until the 10th. Just hope the club have good backup options.

Bruce and Mbakogu was tongue in cheek . . . .but given our track record its a real possibility :(

If he listens to the twitterverse it wont be Bruce and Jerry . . . . . .I'll be McCarthy and McCormack :oops: :verysad:

Slightly more optimistic about this now we have Bielsa although I have a feeling he will be calling in favours and hitting the loan market hard.

I never think of loan players as Leeds players and fortunately there's a limit..One of the reasons I never took to Lassoga was he was loan . Don't mind loan with the option to buy quite so much.
