The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Fri 13th September) All the latest news from Elland Road

Post by Ellandback1 » Fri Sep 13, 2019 7:18 am


Good Morning. It's Friday 13th September, and here are the Leeds Utd headlines

Boro set to sue EFL over Derby FFP farce

According to The Times, Middlesbrough have sent legal documentation to the EFL, showing intentions to sue them for failing to enforce its financial rules over Derby's purchase of Pride Park.

Pride Park was listed as an asset on Derby's books with a value of £41m when their owner Mel Morris used a separate company to buy it for £80m with a deal to lease it back.

Losses of more than £13m per year over three years breach the EFL's profit and sustainability rules, and by virtue of Derby's (fraudulent imo) actions, it looks like they have escaped justice.

Why haven't Leeds been throwing their weight around? The football governing bodies are quick enough to do it, when the ball is on the other foot?



Leeds rejected 27m for Phillips in the Summer

According to the Sun, Leeds rejected an offer of 27m for Kalvin Philips from Spurs in the Summer.

Leeds were worried that had they accepted the offer, they would have to find themselves a new Manager.

Phillips has been speaking to the YEP about his joy having signed a 5 year deal (and making himself over 10m in the process).
“It’s a big moment in my career, I want to spend a lot of time at this club and to sign a new five year deal is a very proud moment for myself and my family,”

“I always talk about football, it is what I live for and my family have always supported me 100 per cent, if it wasn’t for my mum and my grandma, I don’t think I would be in this position now.

“I’ve spent countless hours on the training pitches, I’ve put a lot of hard work in and sacrificed a lot, so I think I’ve deserved what I am getting.

“This season we’ve got to get back in the Premier League and with the team and manager we have got, it would be a big opportunity wasted if we don’t get promoted.

“We’ve got to push and push for promotion, we came so close last year and I think it has done the team good because we know what it takes and how much hard work it takes to get there.

“Hopefully we can have another good season like last year, but finish it off.”
At what price would YOU sell Phillips for?

In other news

It has been revealed that Liam Cooper was instrumental is persuading Kalvin Phillips to stay at Leeds.

Hmmmmm, I wonder whether Stuart Dallas 'had a word' too?


The Matthew Murray High School in South Leeds looks favourite to become Leeds new training ground.

Facilities including high-performance sports pitches and gymnasiums, nutrition facilities, medical rooms and teaching and staff space would be created at a cost of circa 25m

The proposed training ground would be Category 1 status - a requirement of the Premier League for training and academy facilities.


Leeds are currently in talks with Klich and Hernandez about renewing their contracts. Hernandez will be 35 at the end of this current season. Thoughts?


It's Friday 13th. Anyone superstitious?

Morning Leon. So, if Spurs wrote a check now for 40m, and you were the Chairman, what would you do?

Morning Matt

Why would anyone want to disrupt our promotion challenge by selling one of our key players just to have money sitting in the bank account

Radz & co will have much more than £40m in their pockets if we reach the premiership

Evening Folks,

Re Derby, if Boro do make a case Leeds should weigh in with a claim for £4m we lost out on not getting to Wembley.

Just to make it awkward...
"We can wait for the next game with serenity"

"I am quite clear in my mind that one has to feel sincere love for those he leads, and if he doesn't feel it naturally, then he must learn how to feel it"


Marcelo Bielsa.

Joking aside I would agree, if this had been in June, giving us time to get someone else of similar skills for half or two-thirds the price AND giving Marcelo time to get the replacement up to his levels of performance in time for the season, but not now because our potential promotion season could be seriously screwed.
I haven't seen Philips play since the cup game at Cambridge in (I think) the February of Monk's season but, even then he was a wonderful prospect pre-Bielsa.

Do you like winding-up clocks too :whistle:

Thanks Leon.

No, not on holiday. Being retired, I just like to interfere with as many things as possible without actually getting into trouble ( :mrgreen:) , but I have been busy of late, which is why I've skipped the comps a bit - sorry about that.

Take care mate :tup:
