Phillips wage demands reach a crucial stage

Good Morning. It's Monday 26th August, and here are the Leeds Utd headlines...


Leeds destroy sorry Stoke

Leeds breathtaking form continued as they tore apart Stoke City at the weekend. Goals from Dallas, Alioski and Bamford secured the three points and kept Bielsa's men top of the Championship. Only fine saves from Potters shot stopper Federici kept Costa, Forshaw and Shackleton from piling on more misery!

When Douglas returns from injury, who would you prefer to see at left back? Douglas or Alioski?

Same question when Ayling finally resurfaces! What happens with Dallas?

Does Nketiah deserve more game time?

Same question regarding Costa?





Phillips wage demands reach a crucial stage

It has become clear over the weekend that contract talks between Kalvin Phillips and the club have reached a crucial stage. If paper talk is to be believed, Phillips is asking for £40,000 a week. If the club agree, our Talisman will sign a new contract! Thoughts?

Its obscene money whatever way you look at it but better to pay it than buy some overrated import who's just come for the money. Phillips knows what Leeds is about and is as desperate as the rest of us to get Leeds in the PL.

Phillips is just as important as Pablo, Bamford & Kiko to us.

God knows what the value of all our players are since Bielsa inherited the squad
Maybe so but i find it ridiculous that a player in this day and age can earn that sort of money in the 2nd tier.

Based on 1 season.

No issue with him getting a new deal, deserved it for the improvement.

But if its true he demanded to be a high earner then thats poor from someone who is apparently desperate to stay.

Could be but i doubt it, been widely reported for ages KP (and Roofe) wanted parity with Bamford and Casilla.

Ive no idea, just think £40k a week or even £30k is a heck of a lot of money for 1 good season in the 2nd tier.

Lewis Cook earns between £30-40k at Bournemouth.

Firstly Cjay this 40k a week being bounded about could be pure media speculation.

Enlighten me, who could play his role effectively if we waved Kalvin bye bye ?

I don't think I will ever get tired of watching that goal.

The pass from Pablo was weighted so perfectly, any more pace on it and it Dallas would not have got there and any less and the defender would have been able to clear it.

Amazing first touch from Hernandez
