You have more faith in him then me :(

Anyone who touts Brighton as a Successful example of how to run a club and get promoted needs to do more research.

They were successful yes, but not an example of a club run cheaply.

They made a £20mil loss in the 2 seasons leading up to there promtion through transfers alone.

£75.2 million loss total from 14-15 to 16-17 season.

They were not profitable and selling there u21 stars for £6mil!!!!!!

Anyways i hope your right, i feel better now :)
Phil Hay has said they are working on a keeper this week, I would imagine it’s close if he’s mentioning it, he seems to get info as we are close, hopefully he’ll have a name for us soon and announced Monday? Can’t see them announcing a keeper the day of a big game, wouldn’t be good for BPF all the excitement over Hart coming in :shock: :)

Swansea fans views on Jack

Good read, shows how lucky we are to have him, as for going to a top 4 club, I really hope Ian Harte isn’t like all the other agents, being a ex-pro May allow for some actual advice that will help Jack improve as a player rather than solely focus on the money.
He has the world at his feet, but physically he’s a long way to go, which is scary, when you think how good he could become.

I saw a lot of non Leeds fans on Twitter saying we should sell him to a top 6 team and get him back on loan for the rest of the season. Why on earth would we be stupid enough to do that? If we go up, his value will sky rocket and he'll actually get game time, not 5 mins off the bench or Carabao Cup games.

I hope AR sees it this way as well. There must be thoughts in his head about being in the PL next season and Jack can save him multi millions .

We need to be keeping our assets not selling them

Unfortunately it's not up to us. :cry: I just hope Radz sees sense rather than £ signs.

Indeed it would BG, we could be talking a £30m to £50m player playing in the prem for Leeds who cost us nothing.

Would be ludicrous to sell Clarke

He'll not go this window, as Radz ambition is to get us to the Prem then sell up, if we don't get there then a sale could well go ahead come the summer.

Ian Harte said how excited he was to see his old mate Michael Bridges at the Norwich game.

Fan asked about whether Jack would still be with us.
That cheered me up :)

Not great from Jack today.

But he only touched the ball 17 times, if he doesnt have the ball kind of hard to make a difference.

Lot of credit in the bank for Jack, he will need a lot more poor games for me to start really criticising him.

Made a much bigger impact from the bench, much tougher starting every week, but the lad has a lot of talent.

i agree.
the kid still learning his trade.
however id start him against norwich just think he might have that extra more room to deliver at elland road than he has recently in our away games. .

I really want Clarke to stay with for at least 2- 3 years. I think this boy is pretty good.As far as i was watching on TV, i can tell that he has really nice agillity,technique and finishing.And really want to see him in PL playing for us and then he can do whatever he like

So thats the end of that, good lad Ian, if Jack goes now Harte looks like a twit, so the only way Jack leaves is if the club push him out the door.

Good man Ian :)

2 ways of looking at that. 1) he isn't going anywhere and not being sold 2) He is being sold but will be staying here till the end of the season to try to help us get promoted.

Would seriously hope though that he isn't being sold as it would be incredibly stupid short termism.

Safe to say secrets out of the bag.

Got to start vs Norwich.

Open game they wont sit back and defend, give him the chance to be the hero again.

Leeds' greatest teams have always had a lot of homegrown, young talent in them... (Revie, Wilkinson, O'Leary...) Im really hoping that this is the dawn of another great team and for me, its imperative that Leeds keep players like Clarke and Shackleton and continue to develop them. Wouldnt it be nice to hear "Clarke! 1-0" again at Wembley in 2022? 50 years on from that famous cup final ... okay im dreaming a bit now and getting ahead of myself, but really, to keep our best players.. Leeds MUST earn promotion this season! Im almost certain Clarke will leave if promotion isnt achieved, but with that said, I truly believe this team is the real deal and this is the season! MOT
