“I'm smiling down the phone and saying 'Okay, but I don't think Middlesbrough will let me go'.”

I though pulis forced bamford out.

Bamford was obviously very happy to leave. Getting 10 million for him was good business imho.

I just don't understand how it could be the case. If they'd got so wankered on a Thursday that they had to call off a game on the Saturday I think Gibson would've sacked Robson on the spot. Gibson/Lamb first contacted the FA at 10am on the Friday before the game was due to be played on the Saturday, I don't see why with this amount of notice the club doctors/medical team couldn't have had any hung over players on saline drips to re-hydrate them long before kick off.

Fair enough, probably rubbish then.

Pretty funny that they fed him the line about wanting him to be their main striker. Also laughing at the fact they thought they'd taken away our best player.

But, no sour grapes from me. I'm indifferent towards Orta anyway.

Orta who. I liked Bamford and better used would have made a bigger difference but as in football players come and go and the club moves on.

What else is interesting is Leeds decided bamford was there number target so Orta called bamford to see if he would be interested in a move.

Isn’t that tapping a player up?

Just thinking about the amount of players we’ve had in last couple of seasons deemed not good enough by either the manager or the fans who are now regulars in teams doing much much better than us. Besic playing for Sheff Utd tonight, Harrison, Foreshaw, Bamford all in the starting 11 for Leeds most weeks. Fredericks a regular for West Ham. How do we keep getting it so wrong? 

Even Orta who many supporters blamed for our PL failure is an integral part of the Leeds set up.

Sometimes players can suit one team, style or manager and not another. Sometimes players gel well with other players better. 

Saying that though, I can't think of too many players who have come here and made their previous clubs scratch their heads. Maybe Besic the first time, Gaston and Bamford in his last couple of months with us?

You know when we signed Harrison on loan I thought we had him on a 18 months loan deal so understood why Pulis never played him as was allowing him to settle but then summer came around and he was off what a waste of a half season wage and probable loan fee

Apparantly there are only 12 people living in Benin and the former player/coach is now just coach, so they have called upon Big Rudy!

    • Apart from some unfounded speculation on here I have seen nothing to suggest he hasn’t been paid. Do you know that he hasn’t been paid? If he hasn’t, then I’m surprised he hasn’t just said so, instead of saying he can understand if people think he is a money grabbing player with no loyalty, but hopes that people will forgive him for only thinking about himself.  There is nothing to suggest he hasn’t been happy taking his pay during the last few months without lifting a finger and now he can only think about himself. 
    • Report on Moukoudi which can be filed in the section 'complete bullshit' https://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2020/06/04/report-woodgate-signing-already-facing-middlesbrough-exit-pl-clubs-will-bid-9m/
    • Where is the evidence to prove he has or hasn't getting paid? I haven't personally seen it yet.
    • Aye, it does put it all into perspective when you say it like that 😰
    • I'm aware of the current situation at Charlton but he has been getting paid.  I don't understand why you two keep suggesting he hasn't been?  I know the club is a shambles but the players have still been getting their wages.  His decision not to play is solely based on fear that an injury might impact a potentially lucrative contract offer somewhere else.
