Thanks.

 

I'm not disputing what you've written btw just highlighting that those saying we aren't a long ball team aren't necessarily bashing the club but instead taken into account a larger viewpoint. 

 

Equally they might just be bashing the club. Personally, I don't think long ba is our issue, I think we try to pass it around but lack of movement and speed of thought are what prevent it working 

 

Agree with you completely. Look at how differently we play with Naismith in the team as he can coordinate that movement and link the play. 

 

Hopefully recruiting a winger and striker, as well as retaining Naismith and Djoum will see us have the ability to play that style of football more effectively this season coming.

I think you may have to start a separate thread although I've no doubt the CL haters will divert and pollute that as well/

Never seen the guy in my puff, but I would probably start from a level of low expectation.

 

As I say with any name, and quite a few replies I got on Djoum were bang on, its how much of your budget you spend versus payback.

Never seen him but sure someone linked him with us a few months ago.

The guy that told me about it described him as a winger. But could be a striker as well, I had never heard of him until last week.

Don’t know much about him either mate. Looked him up after your posts. MDV must have been on the blower to his old gaffer. ?

Reports on his performance are not good. 

 

Still maybe SPL is his level.

Think he is still young and must have done something to get a fee and a 4 year deal at Leeds.

Would be interesting to see which position he has predominantly played in. Might try and look up Leeds forum later when have time, to see what they think of him.

How do you play counter attack football if you have the ball in defence and all the outfield players are in front of you?

From the Wiki blurb, it sounds like he's had a rough time at Leeds but a decent loan spell last year back in Holland.

Big athletic lad who can play through the middle or out wide.

Dare I say " would be a bit of a punt "

If we were to sign him, the financial drop in 2020 calendar sales would need to be factored in...wonder what his burd looks like compared to Mrs Lafferty?

Grot looks fine to me. A handful and a physically imposing striker

Spoke to a Leeds fan at work. Says Grot wasn't mentally ready for Leeds/move to England so was loaned back to Holland. Also says he is an absolute unit and got a decent bit of pace.

 

Definitely a striker/right winger.

Sounds interesting and one that would be potentially exciting. Sounds like it would be a loan if anything.

He’s valued at £1,000,000 so I’d imagine he’d be more than a punt! Having said that the kickback way (or my way at least) is to get too excited about players and then they under perform...

 

however this lad looks a unit, a unit with pace. What we need out wide

He is certainly a unit going by this pic

Noel Whelan saying that Leeds should just get rid of Jay-Roy Got as they need someone who will make an impact now. Also says Bielsa is going to give him a chance over the summer to prove himself. 

 

Leeds are trying to get Ryan Kent in on loan which could be a double boost, increases our chances of getting Grot and massively weakens der hun!

Yeah I doubt Leeds will be giving up on him. Although a loan with a view to a permanent transfer may not be out of the question.

 

Uche up top with Grot right, Mulraney left and Naismith in behind looks like it could be a really decent prospect.

Not sure the loan market is a particularly good way to go unless its proven quality coming in like Naismith.

 

Dunne was a good acquisition but our defence never really recovered from him leaving and Mitchell/Shaughnessy were a waste of time last season.  

 

Would much rather we developed our own players.
