Emi Buendia

Post by Cjay » Thu Mar 14, 2019 5:25 pm

We were linked with him for ages.

How the hell did we not get him?

The one good player that crappy Spanish team had (on loan) and we missed out.

How?

Wouldn't swap him for Pablo, wouldn't swap anyone for Pablo but he is a talented young man.

From HITC: According to the Sun (17 September 2017), Leeds were keen to bring Buendia to England A YEAR AGO with the little schemer shining on loan at The Whites’ Spanish sister club Cultural Leonesa.

How did we not get him?

Cellino either didn't rate him or didn't want to cough up.

Always tricky to know if we were really after him or not - we were linked with so many players where there was no real evidence that we wanted them. If Saiz had been sold in the summer he may have been on the list of replacements but with Saiz not going we didn't really need that type of player. Obviously in hindsight it would have been a good signing but equally if circumstances with Saiz's personal life had been different we may well have seen the Saiz of early 2017-2018 and seen him getting double figures for goals and assists.

When we go up with Sheff U and Norwich lose in the play offs we can probably buy him from them quite cheaply.
