Summer Transfer Window 2018.

It’s alright going lolol but he’s better than shotton, roofe fair enough I thought he was a wide player not a striker, you’d choose nobody over alioski? And you honestly believe Bamford isn’t good enough to be in our team? You’d chose howson over Hernandez really?

The issue isn't what the fans think of Leeds but what potential signings think of them. If it's a straight choice for besic and he chooses them then he believes they have a better chance of promotion. If we simply aren't in for him then I find it strange that we aren't bothered about our best central midfielder last year while playing the two that weren't as good.

Pulis was brought to help us get promoted. If we’re not going to back him, what was the point? Gibson worried about Brexit smashing his haulage firm, so raising funds now?

I suspect we are in for him in some manner.

And I will eat my Boro cap if we sign 29 year old crock Bolasie for £15m. Gibson won't sanction that.

 

He sanctioned a deal for a 31 year old Downing for a transfer fee of up to 7m (5.5m but rising to 7m if we achieved promotion) and wages of 70k a week for 4 years, total outlay of close to 21.56m+ not including promotion bonus etc...

 

As others have said, Downing wasn't/isn't on those kind of wages...

 

Gibson made an exception for a local lad (his favourite) and there were no injury concerns.

 

I can't see Bolasie happening on loan either, as he would be an good option for mid/lower Premier League teams on those terms.

Howson doesn't play the same position as Hernandez, so its not really a choice to make. I didn't say Bamford wasn't good enough, you stated he'd walk into our team less than a week after we sold him due to him not getting into our team. Ayling is decent but given we seem to be looking for a RB comparing him to Shotton doesnt seem fair. Alioski is a bog standard championship winger, i'd hope he we get with the money we have to spend but I guess right this moment he'd get in our team.

It depends what kind of deal him and Everton are open to I’d guess

And possibly what deal Besic is open to, maybe he wants a loan with obligation to buy if promoted, so that he doesn't get stuck in the Championship etc. Whereas Everton would prefer money upfront.

That’s my point though, of course I want us to get better players than that here, but comparing to what we have right now is why I think they will finish above us. Let’s just move on anyway no need de railing this thread any more.

I really don't see any truth in bolasie rumour, I see it as a bluff to get Burnley or who ever to stump up the cash for him

At the Derby end, they seem pretty convinced he's there. Doesn't seem to be any hiccups.

 

He's probably all done but they'll be going through all the social media pizzazz to announce him.

    • The issue with Round being asked to be DoF then when he got up here for talks, being offered Assistant Manager, anyone know what happened? Was the DoF role never on the table, mixed communication or what?! Seems so odd but gives a glimmer of hope than we might try and fill that role in the summer. 
    • give your head a shake man FFS.....
    • Bielsa is employing undercover spies again!, I did wonder why derby started crumbling again. 
    • Have to start the same team surely, even thought Johnson looked slightly better than the last 2 games in that last one. In terms of a prediction, Warnocks got 2 victory's and 2 losses so far....time for his first draw with us I think, ill go 1-1 Spence power driver late on rescuing a point for us. 
    • I don't think Warnock will have any effect on our scouting or recruitment. Pulis certainly didn't and yet he was publicly declaring himself as tasked with not wasting Gibson's money, it was just as shoddy under his tenureship as it's ever been in recent years. Warnock will recruit players for his style of play and we'll be left with them when he goes. If we're going to play the way he wants us to play, we should go for that in the long-term, not for just some short-term 'rebuild' that we have to rebuild again in a year's time.
