    When and if he signs we will all know, there will be that much hullabaloo all over the TV and press.
    For me to be convinced I would like his flight No so at least we would know he is on his way.<grr>

    I read the next 48 hours is crucial a week ago last Sunday, five days passed then it was an important weekend and a decision by Monday then on Monday the next 48 hours again, every single report is a shot in the dark or a rehash. NewsNow really is a waste of time, full of B/S

    Reports from different sources say he’s signed, doesn’t mean they are going to announce it yet. I would expect there is a lot to sort out with moving so far for both him and his coaching staff. I thought they would wait until he’s over here and call a press conference but with our impatient fans who knows. Probably why pre season has been left as normal,to give time for everyone to get over here.

    I understand Leeds United are considering a draft of a contract sent by ex Argentina & Chile boss Marcelo Bielsa who is in talks to become the #lufc new head coach. The draft was sent in the early hours of this morning. Bielsa’s camp say “the ball is in Leeds United’s court.”

    Latest is Leeds are looking over a draft contract from Bielsa! Looks like he’s only coming on his terms. I’ll piss myself if he doesn’t come now. Damn Elland beat me to it!!

    Let's be honest, there is a stumbling block, he either wants more control than Orta is willing to relinquish or he wants funds or promises that the club cannot deliver. I'm not knocking him or the club in regards to the demands/requests, if he is being unrealistic in transfer budget expectations let's move on, if Rads and Orta are unwilling to let him have "X" amount of control again lets move on.

    Someone doesn't want it bad enough or someone is having a problem delivering what the other person wants, this is just starting to smell like a disaster waiting to happen, an early departure (if he ever makes it here) with a "He said, She Said" / "They Promised" scenario just waiting to happen.

    Afternoon all, Im not getting all excited unlike those on Twitter regarding the announcement. I think it is a done deal and the official announcement is a formality.

    I am more curious now as to player comings and goings, this will be what really shows our chances next season. Be very interesting to see the sort of players we attract, have heard an in the know Man city supporter say that we are already linked with 3-4 of their youngsters.

    The optimistic feeling is filling my bones slowly and I hope the next few weeks will only raise it more. It is always nice going into a season with hope optimism.

    If this really is the case then I have my doubts we will see him, if they are only now looking at a contract
    What the **** have they been doing all this time. :headbang:<steam>

    I don't read it at that,sounds to me,that they've done all the talking,he's agreed and signed,then sent it back to Leeds to do the same,he may have added the odd provision to it.

    Just read that it looks like a 12 month contract with options to extend. Sounds like a lack of conviction to me.

    Yes, unless hopefully this is the final draft that has been signed and is waiting on the counter signature from Leeds.

    I read it that we (Leeds United) haven't sent the draft, it sounds like Bielsa and his advisors have drawn up a draft of "what he wants" and the ball is in Leeds court. I'd imagine the draft is along the lines of what budget he expects, what say he has, transfer targets etc.

    In my opinion it isn't going to happen...

    Not convinced I want it to happen anymore.
    How much is it going to cost the club I would like to know.
    Fat salary fat budget all goes t*ts up where does that leave the club, back to Ridsdale and Co?.
