    Flint, Hellander, Baath, Elphick mentioned. Who would you realistically want?
    Get your criticism in early.

    Flint, yes. Bath, yes. Helander, hmm mm. Elphick, no thanks. Probability of any coming to Leeds? Nil

    Would be helander first choice with Flint as back up

  7. #7
    Linked tonight to Harold Voyer from PSG. So are Barcodes.

    Mathew Pennington or Michael Dawson.

    Dawson is injury prone, Pennington is unproven, batth is average, voyer no idea but young from what I've heard, elphick is average.

    Now helander is a Sweden international with experience of having played with Jansson so they could form a good partnership

    And Flint is a big strong fella at 6'5, can score goals from set pieces, and has some championship experience, he would do as backup for jansson and helander

    Looks like it's Pennington, season loan.

    Done some good stuff in the lower leagues on loan, thoughts on how he might shape up if he does indeed come to ER?

  11. #11
    think he might be alright, after all Bartley was a loaner too. What worries me about losing Bartley though wasnt just his steadying influence at the back, but also his goals, think he got 4 or 5, which was more than our entire midfield combined last season [lets hope the new signings know where the net is].

    Another one due in a couple of days. Apparently a new name not mentioned before.

    Exactly, Pennington we weren't linked with till the last minute, and all the others mentioned according to Lee Sobot haven't been mentioned by anyone, God knows who these new signings will be

    Lucas Radebe. A mate told me he overheard it in Red Hot Buffet, deal as good as done as long as they can glue his knees back together

    No no. Never go back.
    On second thoughts, he'd still be better than Cooper.

    Cooper isn't that bad lol, people keep saying he was terrible in the friendly but we conceded 3 with Pontus and Pennington on the pitch and only 1 with him lol

    Pontus wasn't fully fit, Pennington was quite new, ayling was on the wrong side, and Anita is a central midfielder, the defence has been makeshift all preseason, we desperately need to sort out centreback and left back, there's no better right back pair in the division than ayling and berardi, and Jansson when fully fit is one of the best centrebacks, Pennington is highly thought of at Everton but if we sell Cooper, then it's 2 new centre backs and 2 new left backs required, Denton should join Coyle out on loan. Ideally our defence options should look like this.

    RB berardi, ayling
    LB new player, new player
    CB jansson, new player, Pennington, new player

    Clive, Much as cooper is decidedly a poor third or fourth choice from my perspective [And others on here too] I doubt that the club are looking to move him on - he will be in the squad come Bolton away - trust me.

    If we can get ONE decent center half and a quality left back before then season starts i'll be happy

    Don't you find it annoying though that most fans know he's a defensive weak link but all the professionals think he's great

    To be honest a lot of us were all having doubting thoughts about Wood this time last year and look how that turned out.
