Douglas on his way out?

https://the72.co.uk/158552/leeds-united-said-to-be-readying-douglas-for-elland-road-summer-exit/

Have to say he hasn't really lived up to expectations. Behind Dallas, Alioski and Davis.

In years to come will forget he played for us.

Yes Bielsa is the best signing this club has made in recent times and yes Radz et al brought him in but based on the historic inconsistent approach from the said executive team - Was this a stroke of luck, last throw of the dice or was it by design?

I have thought about it stand by 100% by the comments . The appointment of Bielsa was indeed a masterstroke but it does not give a free pass for every decision thereafter, especially on recruitment. Don is usually well informed by his sources so to hear those sorts of numbers even if we were paying some of that is going to attract comments.

Feel free to check my history.I will give credit where it is due and frequently do and criticise when it is warranted and will continue to do so.have a nice day.

Poveda just created a very nice assist in the U23’s. He does look lively but unless Costa or Harrison get injured I can’t see him starting this season.

Holy cow - even if we're only paying half, that's a lot of money for Augustin being unfit to play when signed. Orta got carried away again then?

I worry we have a lot of obligations already if we are promoted - 15 m for Costa, plus Harrison 8m and White will be silly money, plus now 17 or 21 for Augustin and 5 for Meslier.

Strewth, the promotion bonus disappears in an instant, and we've not really been out shopping.

So the question will, be, if we go up this year, and if Bielsa stays on (big ifs), will this squad stay together and keep us up next season. Couldn't handle coming straight back down again after the past 15 years!

Unless Radrizzani sells up and someone with serious money takes over.

If we go up Bielsa has to stay. He would probably be the difference.

I think the current squad with a few extras would survive a season in the PL. Bielsa has to stay though.
