they won't take Hogan back.

They would want £30m without Hogan and he aint worth that much.

Awesome.

Yep. Steve Bruce - like a few of our managers before him - simultaneously made some average footballers rich men, and at the same time ruined their careers.

Bit like a compensation package then.

Rumour is also £15m plus a player. Hogan going back?

Sheffield United did well to refuse a obligation to buy if promoted clause.

Would imagine by now he's only got a year left on his deal so hopefully we'll unload him this summer.

4.5 year deal from Jan 2017

Blimey two more years. O.k perhaps it will have to be a season long loan then? At least 4 years for guy who was about 25 when he signed for us makes more logical sense than giving McCormack 4 year deal when he was about to hit 30.

I know itís early day, but are we going for mostly Championship players? Should we be aiming higher?

No - we've signed Guilbert from France, Hause from Wolves, El Ghazi from a French team and Big Wes from Belgium. 0 Championship players signed so far.

In any case, I have no problem with doing an early-Spurs approach of buying the best youngish Championship players with a smattering of foreign signings - Butland and Phillips would fall into that category for sure, Maupay probably. The winger from Brentford whose name I can't spell, no idea as I haven't seen him play.

Just perusing some other football stuff. Came across these predictions for next season. Difficult to argue against any of the predictions, although my gut feeling is Wolves will struggle a bit next year. Could just be wishful thinking.

I will settle for 14th for Villa. And I hope Sheffield United do better.

1 - Manchester City
2 - Liverpool
3 - Tottenham
4 - Arsenal
5 - Manchester United
6 - Wolves
7 - Chelsea
8 - Leicester City
9 - Everton
10 - West Ham
11 - Watford
12 - Newcastle
13 - Bournemouth
14 - Aston Villa
15 - Crystal Palace
16 - Burnley
17 - Norwich City
18 - Southampton
19 - Brighton
20 - Sheffield United

Understand Kalvin Phillips is doing a Jack Grealish with Leeds - giving them one more chance to go up with him....

That would be great business for us. Hogan has been a disaster, and Maupy looks like he can step up a league.
they won't take Hogan back.

Kodja?
Although he may want to go back to France

Yep, disappointing for us but entirely understandable.  The question remains will Leeds be able to resist the money?  Also, if he did come would his heart be in it?

Surely better options on the continent than Phillips. Smith has a track record of finding gems.

From what I can make out lots of Leeds fans were upset that they sold one of their best players last summer, doing it 2 years in a row might be a bit much for the fans given this is a fairly new owner.

Fair play to him, I'm fine with players showing a bit of loyalty. I wonder who the next target is. Given we've shown we're willing to look in the Belgian league there's a young Norwegian playing at Genk called Sander Berge that I'd like us to look at. He was linked with Roma and Spurs in January, he's exactly the sort of midfielder we could do with, big, strong, work his tits off and has good passing and touch. A couple of the guys at my main office reckon he's the best player Norway have had for years.

The Phillips is staying at Leeds comes from one of those Jackanory TeamTalk Twitter accounts, ran by a Leeds fan.

If we make an acceptable bid, he'll leave. Jack never had a choice to make as Spurs made a bid of £3m plus Onomah and then £25m post take over, both of which were obviously rejected.

Phillips has a chance to;

Play for a bigger club
Premier League football
Significantly increase his wages
Push for an England spot in a tournament year in a position England are weak in

Make a bid that Leeds accept and he will come.

There's also the incentive of not having to play for a bunch of snarling Neanderthals in a tin pot shack of a stadium.
