  1. Yep, google agrees, unused sub, my bad. The reddit thread on the match didn't list him but not a particularly reliable source. Where are you seeing this? Not sure about the credibility of Lonjon, wasn't he the one that reported Lemina was going to wolves last year?
  2. Dropped from the squad for the game today, get the feeling he is imminently going somewhere but I doubt it is us. Would love to be wrong though.
  3. Getting the feeling we won't sign him. There are a lot of richer clubs interested and we aren't as appealing. Need to get it done fast!
  4. A good point, but Adams may have done a lot better in the championship than Augustin based off his excellent season down there with Birmingham. Also sounds like Augustin has major injury problems.
  5. We are likely bartering to pay in instalments (potentially more money to do so) rather than paying the full sum up front. This isn't that uncommon, most teams pay for players over 3-4 years or so, this means the upfront cost of a 10m player you get through a release cause is the same as the upfront cost for a ~40m player.
  6. I remember the Coutinho rumour, was never sure how much truth was in it. Seemed like agent talk.
  7. With the recent revelation that Leeds are going to be in a legal battle with RB Leipzig in order to get out of signing Augustin: I thought it might be interesting to have a look at some of the big transfers which didn't quite make it across the line in the last couple of years and see what they are up to nowadays. The ones that come to mind for me are: Quincy Promes: Was very poor at Seville with 2 goals and 3 assists in 33 games but seems to be turning things around at Ajax with much more impressive numbers, however, obviously at a significantly lower quality league Ademola Lookman: Has been dreadful for Leipzig with 0 goals in 12 games and all reports indicate that they are desperate to offload Theo Walcott: Everton fans seem to absolutely hate the guy, and to be honest he has looked pretty dreadful every time I have seen him play. 9 goals and 7 assists in 72 games isn't great either to be honest. James Maddison: A bit of a stretch this one as we were not linked at all until the week he signed for Leicester, so likely the link was just to hurry Leicester up with the signing, still great player Ryan Sessegnon: Signed for tottenham, has barely played, held out the team by Lamela and Lucas Moura who, while are alright players, one would expect him to be competing with given his 40m price tag. The message from all this I suppose is to the fans that think "oh just chuck another few million at them, get it over the line", the ability to know a players value and not spend over it is as important as the ability to spot a bargain. We have learned this lesson the hard way in the past! Remember this when some signings this summer inevitably don't come off.
  8. Looks like we dodged a bullet with Jean-Kevin Augustin, Leeds may be entering a legal battle NOT to sign him:

    Obafemi or Adams?

    When Adams gets one I expect him to get a few. I hope he will start now until the end of the season as I expect he would score 2/3 goals. That last burst through against watford was superb.

    Yeah the UK did horrible things preWW2 as well.

    Yep. So winning world war 2 doesnt mean you should be automatically grateful if the country then goes on to kill people. My point exactly.

    You have everything to do with him. If Russia, and by extension him, didn't support us how they did, then you would be speaking German right now. How is that any different to what British soldiers did for you? Stalin personally improved your life by allowing you to live in a free country, are you going to thank him?

    Well all economic ideologies control power through governmental force. So really you should throw capitalism into that same result too. Expecially when you consider the countless that have died in wars for commodities, those left to starve while others live in excess, those who live and die in slave-like conditions in third world countries just to facilitate cheaper trainers. The thing is, ideologies in general have causal links to murder in one sense or another. Marxism can be done without mass-murder, as can capitalism. Fascism is, by definition, mass murder.

    Weird that Marxism is seen as the other end of the spectrum to Fascism when one is an economic ideology about the ownership of the means of production and the distribution of power and the other is the act of racial purification through genocide. Seems a pretty shitty equivocation.

    Without a lot of things you undoubtedly disagree with we wouldn't be a free country either. The USSR had more troops die fighting Nazi Germany than the US and the UK put together and almost quadruple what the UK sent. Does that mean you are a hypocrite if you don't celebrate Stalin?
