You don't think if Bielsa had contacts we could use we wouldn't be using them?
We know that we have scouted abroad, Orta is abroad right now.

But Orta is focused on domestic, he has been since his 1st season c**k up.

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Im still waiting for the downturn in prices caused by Covid 19 . . . . . Thought it was going to be a buyers market. Nathan Ake cost £40mil. . . .Lewis Dunk, Brighton want £40-50mil, we just had a £22mil bid rejected for a 2nd division cb!!!!! Man City signed a very highly rated Spanish winger for £...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

I would love to see Eze at Leeds. He's got great skill, but is he a Bielsa type of player? I would take a gamble on the kid and let Marcelo work is magic. Is Benrahma, is Wilson? The only player who seems to be a certain Bielsa player is Almada given he has worked only ever with Bielsa disciples bu...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Taylor Harwood-Bellis. I'd be surprised if they sold him since Garcia will be leaving. Plus he wouldn't cost £20m, so I'd imagine that'd be alongside someone else. Only buying 1cb sadly so if it was him for some ridiculous reason that would be it. may as well slap down a 20mil bid for Garcia while ...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Palace refusing to up their £12mil bid for Eze.

If we are willing to pay £18-22mil for White surely Eze is worth that to?

Forget Benrahma

Hopefully we arent desperate enough to up the bid for White.

Just go get Foyth and Eze.

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

This is an absolutely excellent point. Doesnt seem we are chasing either though. Phil Hay said if we dont get White he has heard we are looking at some 18 year old from Man City who is barely on nodding terms with Pep. Benrahma and White would cost £50mil, utter madness to pay that for 2 2nd divisi...

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Over £20mil for any 2nd division player is madness. You could probably get Foyth and Quarta for £25mil. Ben was class for us last season but we seem to be doing what we always do, focusing on 1 player. Personally id be interested to see what MB can do with Foyth whose already a full international wi...

Re: Latest News

Thanks Fridge and Ell.

Be a bit underwhelmed by Wilson, not a bad player but if you go for someone who played for Bournemouth last season then you go David Brooks.

Re: Marcelo Bielsa

No other manager wins the title by 10 points playing attacking football yet keeping the defence tight with this squad. Firmly believe that. MB worked a miracle last season and will forever be remembered for it. Can it work in the Prem? Will the style over the individual be enough? Maybe, maybe not. ...

Amadou Diawara another name to add to the vast linked list.

23 year old cm/dm plays for Roma.

If Stuijk replaces Berardi who is dm cover? Aside from not being good enough Forshaw is unreliable, could stub his toe and be out for 5 months. Think we just need to hope something happens soon. Ideally id like gk, cb (x2) cm, Am, Rw/lw and st. That wont happen. Did Phil mention Harry Wilson? He see...

Re: Said Benrahma

Phil making it sound like Benrahma is the main target with Ben White.

Fair enough.

Would be interesting to see what MB can do with Benrahma but dont want to see us paying over £20mil for any Championship player including Ben White.

Re: VAR for 2020/21

Coops at set pieces will concede a penalty a game!!!!

VAR will destroy him.

Struijk probably better suited to being Forshaw's replacement.
I agree but according to Graham and Phil we do seem to be looking at midfielders.

Swift, Longstaff etc

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Wonder if maybe we need to prioritise full backs? Both sides. City have spent an absolute fortune on full backs since Pep arrived. They are crucial to the style they play and us and if your fb isnt upto it, a real all rounder, then you pay the price (as City did in Pep's 1st season). None of our ful...

Phil and Graham both say MB wants 4 or 5 1st team signings. He usnt going to change the squad of 18 rule (wish he would much prefer a 22 main squad) but he wont 4 or 5 so Kiko out new goalie in Ben White and Berardi so either 1 new cb plus White or two cbs.

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Harry Wilson back in the frame (remember MB was at Bournemouth vs Everton) not to many players that day he could be looking at. £15mil bid going in apparently. We know Bielsa is a fan. Be a bit underwhelming imo, not a bad signing and done well for Bournemouth. But its not one that makes people go "...

I think the hope is that they'll be the next batch of Smith, Kewell, Harte, Woodgate, Robinson
That would be a happy bonus imo but i think the primary motivation is business and finance related.

Re: The "Summer" Transfer Window 20/21 season

Personally not a huge fan of this stockpiling of u23s in the hope 1 makes it so we can flog them for a profit. Individually they cost not to much but as a collective we have probably spent £10s of millions over all for very little return. From a business perspective it makes sense, can make a lot of...
