Meh, I hate drawing teams from the same division in the cup, there's just no point to it, especially at this stage.

I think I said as much in another thread but it could well have been on Twitter - The question with players like these two and several others in the squad isn't can they do it on any given day (we know they can, we've all seen it), it's whether they can they do it over the course of a season. Based on prior experience, you'd say probably not, which is why it does still make sense to have replaced them if the opportunity arose. As things stand I'm glad it didn't but it's a long old season.

It is a fact that you can virtually always find a better player if you have the money but that's the sort of redundant statement certain people traffic in, ignoring the reality of our financial situation etc.

Yep, bielsa obviously believed the main problem in the squad was the lack of goalscorer at this level. How much wasted on lassoga last season? Loan fee plus wages anywhere between 2-5m given he was apparently on 50k a week.

Now it's a situation where the coach has to prioritise hence viera had to pay for bamford.

That doesn't mean a player is rated despite what some will tell you sometimes needs must.

Leeds didn’t cover PML’s £50k.

We're also a few million quid better off by not needing to pay the ground rent anymore.

Please don't quote me out of context. I was suggesting Bielsa rates the players & went on to say that maybe I was wrong & we didn't sign replacements due to a lack of cash.

Appreciate your view is different & I may be being a bit touchy about selective quoting but I can't help it.
