I’m not sure if James is worth £1m or £12m however this deal fell through as a result of us being unable to put cash on the table immediately rather than in the summer. Likewise Viera a player Bielsa wished to retain said he could double in value was sacrificed to shore up a short term cash flow issue.

If we fail to go up I’m afraid Clarke will be sold cheaply like Saiz and Viera was.

Radz has been a good owner and is light years ahead of many of his predessors, however his failure to find £750k immediately rather than in June could cost him £250m!


Said it in January and will repeat unless Radz gets his money out we will end up bridesmaids again. We have a genius of a manager who in the grand scheme of things has had sod all support.

As usual, I and a couple of mates were the last to leave the stadium last night, (with the exception of the Derby fans), and just as we were about to leave, Pontus went strolling across the pitch in flip flops and plonked himself down in front of the advertising hoardings in the East stand. It’ll be interesting to see why he left the dressing room, was it an argument, unable to listen to the Derby players celebrating or just sheer frustration.

He would be the one who I could see leaving (other than the ones we are not to bothered about).

I hope he had more than just the flip flops on :D

Pontus obviously cares a lot, maybe too much sometimes. I would think he was gutted at the outcome, gutted he couldn't play his part and needed to get away from the fallout and clear his head.
I noted in the immediate aftermath of the game he was out there shaking hands with the Derby players, he is a class act and I can't believe some are saying they wouldn't be too bothered if he left for decent money. He should be one of the first we make sure is staying around.

One of Roofe, Jansson or Phillips will be sold. Probably Roofe as he has one year left, but Jansson deserves a move to a higher league.

What we need is a clinical finisher, a creative midfielder, a CB and a couple of wingers who score. I think the u23s can step up in some situations, like Gotts, Bogusz, Kun, Rey and Struijk.

Mentioning the under 23s stepping up, what about the goalkeeper? I thought he was brilliant in their final - was it against Birmingham? Miercek or something like that he is called. He impressed me.

LEEDS target Jamal Lowe is one step closer to a Championship move after Portsmouth’s play-off exit.

With James destined for th PL, is Lowe the new target for the Winger role?

Ekuban sold for £2m and Saiz wanted by Valencia for £5.5m. We could probably get fees for Sacko, Cibicki, Anita, Pearce, Coyle, Denton, De Bock, Grot, Ideguchi too. We could be looking at £10-12m before even selling a key player.
