  1. I think he was at fault for the Blackburn goal (Bell?!) parrying the free-kick straight back into a dangerous area - may have moved a bit in the air, but anyway that's been ultra critical. Overall he's been absolutely fine. I'd personally feel more confident with Butland between the sticks though.
  2. Another quiet day on the transfer front, so as it stands I could see our line up v's Spurs something like; Steer Guilbert Chester Hause Targett Hourihane Elmo Grealish McGinn El Ghazi Wesley Subs; Nyland, Bree, Taylor, Lansbury, Jota, Green, Kodjia. Full on Steve Bruce mode with Elmo RM, but looks to be having a great summer with Egypt, but even if you change him for Jota/Green, we still look very short of quality at this stage. Any signings from here on in I hope are ones that will improve the first eleven or it will be a long season.
  3. Fair point. But not for me. If anything the inflated price is the only down side to this potential transfer. Before April, it was a lot more likely that Leeds would be playing a league higher than us and this would be a non-starter, I actually think that Leeds would have been sniffing around a few of our star players. Really hope it happens but if not we definitely need a player with the same traits.
  4. This is the exact conversation I had with two Leeds supporting mates yesterday, whom both thought the fee being banded about was on the high side for someone that has had one good season (albeit a very good one), they feel he his integral to their team and are worried that even with the money they would receive it wouldn't necessarily be used to strengthen their squad. It does feel a lot like the Grealish scenario where they want one more season to help them gain promotion. My first reaction when I saw the 25 million figure was it was way too high, it probably is, but I suppose that's football today. I'd probably be worth 100k* myself. *10p
  5. I've mentioned a few times on here that I'm a big, big fan of Philips and think he would fit in perfectly with our team but... I think 25 million is a LOT of money and although I get why Leeds would want that (we as a club know that more than most), we should look elsewhere for sure!
  6. Exciting signing and totally out of the blue (which makes you think all the names we are linked with won't come to fruition)! As others have mentioned, the comparisons to Benteke stand out a mile, albeit from limited viewings. Like the fact that he's young, tall, looks to have a physical presence and one that's been courted by some decent clubs by all accounts bodes well. I do think that we as fans do get more excited by fancy foreign names but I can understand why. Really hope this ones a success
  7. I agree to an extent, but players are generally going to be purchased on the back off having a good season(s) rather than a poor one. Kodjia has suffered two bad ankle injuries whilst at Villa and that definitely (for me) impacted his performances from his first season here, but injuries can and will happen. Hogan, I agree, this has been a signing that's completely failed and hopefully we have learned from that. Swings and roundabouts I suppose. I just think with this one, a young strong defensive quick midfielder is crucial to us next season.
  8. I think every signing comes with an element of risk though. Worst case scenario (barring a Luc Nilis type injury, God forbid) is we buy him say for arguments sake £15M, he doesn't perform and we sell him at a bit of a loss - Providing he isn't on ridiculous wages, which I doubt he would be, then I don't think it will hurt us too much.
  9. If McGinn had played for Leeds last season and played as well as he did for us, would you not sign him based on him having one good season in the championship? He was class last season and is capable of the step up IMO, he has scope for improvement too.

  12. Really, really hope we get Phillips, would be a cracking signing - he's youthful, energetic, tenacious, potential to improve, strong in the tackle, can play centre half or centre mid and can play a bit on the ball
  13. I think it's fair to say Butland would make us stronger in the goalkeeping department therefore I would be pleased if we did get him, but not for 20 million.
  14. I think you're being a tad harsh to be honest. There were times last season that he didn't influence games like he should, but I feel that he is a good player, a confidence player, even in is quieter periods his stats were decent and I thought he finished the season very well for us, arguably changed the game in the semi final home leg and played a key part at Wembley. He has got ability no doubt, just needs to keep the aggression to his game which he showed post the controversial Leeds goal really.
