Bamford’s current striking accuracy makes this less of an issue for me, give Edmondson a try against Ipswich.

Trabzonspor have announced that they have exercised the option to make Ekuban's move there permanent.

Looks like Dan James May be off to Scum. One way or another Radz penny pinching will cost us / him dearly ... either in the transfer fee should we go up or £200m if we don’t.

Nope.
I'm not having that.
You're out of order saying that.

He's spent plenty of money since he took over and in all the right places : buying back ER, getting Thorp Arch in shape and hiring Bielsa and his amazing team of professionals. We've won the U23s league and are still in the race to be promoted.

I think he's done a fine job, period.

Compared to our last few owners he's been a saint.

It had nothing to do with Radz penny pinching it was all down to Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins renaging on the deal.

'Penny pinching' isn't a fair term to use in the James fiasco but that said, Leeds did leave it til very late whereas if they had done all the negotiating earlier in the month Swansea wouldn't have been able to shaft us or their player. As to why Radrizzani left it so late is anyone's guess but plenty of fans like to blame him for the deal collapsing.

Some things just don't work out. I don't understand the need to always have someone to blame.

The Swansea chairman is definitely to blame though.
