I thought Stoke were boring nil-nil merchants last season, Butland most have kept his fair share of clean sheets.

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.

My feelings exactly.

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

My mate is a Leeds fan and reckons Bielsa only agreed to stay on if assurances were given that certain players would not be sold - Phillips was the main one apparently. So I don't think he'll be coming here.

Ads, the same reasons for Jack to leave last summer for Spuds (apart from a bigger club bit), and he stayed. Just something to consider

As I said, Jack never had to make a decision, as Spurs thought they could box clever and got it wrong.if they'd have bid something sensible, like 35m, then Jack would have gone.

Yes I know, just making point that they are similar reasons

I see Motherwell have accepted Norwich's bid for David Turnbull. surely worth Villa bidding as well?

Yeah second half of season after Nathan Jones came in they seemed to morph into a new version of Pulis ball. Endless 0-0s and 1-1s.

First half of the season they were a bit of a mess: Were conceding 2s and 3s against likes of Wigan, Rotherham and Blackburn which takes some doing.

At that price, it's worth the risk. He looks a talent.

Anyone take Reiss Nelson on season long loan from Arsenal?

Wide attacking player. Was on bench for England under 21s tonight (so was Tammy) but he had a decent loan spell at Hoffenheim last season, scored 7 goals in Bundesliga up to xmas. Was more off the bench second half of the year but still 18 year old getting regular minutes in German league is pretty promising.

Seems Arsenal might want him in their first team squad next season but he'd get more starts here so one I'd be enquiring about.

Unless there is a clause to buy were not taking any more loans to help other teams out.

Still need a kick arse holding/sweeper midfielder.   The most crucial of the summer signings.

George Boateng was the best player we have had in that role for years

I agree. I remember being at Anfield when Gerrard made his leg bend the wrong way but it didn't break. Boating was hard as nails and totally reliable.

Agree 100% Mike  George was very undervalued.  IMO.

And a very nice bloke too.  We met him in the club shop buying a club shirt for his girlfriend.

Why were you buying a shirt for his girlfriend? 😀
