Hope we are looking in South America where the pull of Bielsa may really mean something.

Needing players who know the league is a myth, just need to get the best players we can who suite the system.

South America could be a goldmine.

His wages would be a stumbling block to most Championship clubs, but no fee and £25k per week should be within our remit. 30 years old - we should get Klich in his ear "Bielsa got me back in the Polish national team, he can do the same for you."
Any more Poles and the Brexit Party will be after us ;-)

If he's improved from the statue that we had last time then maybe as a second striker, not sure he's better than Bamford though.

Yeah I've said before we need to do this. Not accepting mediocre loans that are mid table Championship at best. We should be looking to RM, Barca, Benfica, Porto etc clubs that always have young South American talent.

Franchu at Real Madrid is at the top of my list as a replacement for Saiz. He reminds me of Hazard in his style of play.

Hull fans reckon Grosicki & Bowen are on there way out this summer

I read somewhere that Lasogga had the best shots to goals ratio in the Championship last season. With him in the team this season, we'd have gone up comfortably. Sign him up :tup:

Just hope we have learned lessons.

We seem really crap at wrapping up deals for whatever reason.

Buendia, Barnes, James, those 3 players and we'd have been up.

Identifying players doesnt seem our problem, signing them does.

I'd love 1 or 2 talented young south american wingers with flair and pace.

Id even accept they may be inconsistent but it would be exciting.

weasel wrote: Tue May 21, 2019 7:24 pm Yeah wouldn't like someone who scored 10 goals in 21 starts (11 times subbed off, 10 times subbed on so that sort of cancels itself out). 10 goals in 21 matches at a completely new team, in a league you haven't played in, in a country you haven't played in and being short of match fitness.

Yeah definitely not worth considering on a free.
This is a team that once scored 3 goals from 112 efforts, but some fans still think we don't need reinforcements up top. :lol:

This link makes sense given we have shopped in Switzerland before and he seems a Bielsa type player.

Kosovo international winger/defender Benjamin Kolloli.

14 goals 8 assists including 2 goals and 2 assists in the Europa League.

We. Completed. The. James. Deal.
Stop fixating on that - their (now resigned) chairman refused to sign off on it despite all of the terms being negotiated.

I'd be interested to see Lasogga train with Bielsa, but I definitely wouldn't commit to anything until we've seen that he's willing and able to get to the acceptable fat levels/fitness required.

Looks good to me, left sided as well. Are the links from Swiss media? I can't find anything atm.

Pete O'Rourke is where the link is from.

Tbf to him he has got quite a bit right, seem to remember he broke Dan James interest in about November.

They're pretty good tbf, especially compared to some other sites. If Brentford are interested too, then he must be a good player. Benrahma, Canos, Maupay all players I'd have loved us to sign and all on the cheap.

Another one, been linked to this one for a while.

Portsmouth winger Jamal Lowe.

24 years old.
Bit of a late developer maybe.

17 goals this season in league 1, Pompey want £2mil.

A gamble?

My thinking to although Brentford do seem to sign them younger, 21, 22, 23.

Come on Leeds 😍 Bring him back!



Hard to believe that goal against Derby was his last goal for the club.
