I think it's pretty obvious to everyone how much money we have to spend.

Chip and a chair and youve got a chance ;).

BTW Clarkes gone to Spurs for a undisclosed fee so i guess no one at all has any idea Leeds got a decent wedge for him.

I know it only counts as part of the budget but don't the fans deserve to know where their money is being spent?

Thing with any fee is, even if you know what the fee is, you don't know how it's structured.
It depends what is the core fee, over how long, what is appearance related, England caps related, so it is really unknown.
The minimum (up front) fee and the maximum (with international appearances) and sell ons would tend to be miles apart.

McCarron had his first run out yesterday. Came on for last half hour, as part of 11 changes.
Must admit to being pleasantly surprised to him. Keen to take his man on, and was lively and very positive once he settled in.
He will probably play again tonight, as he other half of the first team play.

Your lad txt me Last night to tell me he got a run out, he said he looked alright. Honestly CW, i really do think he's going places. I've watched him since he was about 12ish. Good player with plenty of confidence. Good bit of business imo by us.

Yeah, looked promising. Great to have that level of confidence and not to be fazed by the step up.
Still can't get my head round why he wasn't playing every week for Carlisle, albeit based on 30 mins of action. Does look about 12 mind, but that's probably me!
The game is free on LUTV again (comments awaited about curtains and back gardens etc) if anyone wants to see him have a run out, assuming its the same as yesterday with the kids on for the second half.

He seems to have been doing really well. Played quite a bit for the u-23s and scored a couple of goals.

He might get a game tomorrow judging by the videos of the players last night.

Hopefully more cash from a Debut clause if he does!

A mate who’s in the game watched Burnley v Leeds in the U23 League this afternoon. Said McCarron looked very comfortable in a good performance...

He played well (I watched it to try and get over the Crawley farce(, but he's nowhere near the first team yet. Has a real Eddie Gray dropped shoulder style.
The other winger scored a hat trick for one thing.

He's been there 18 months now and has appeared in one checkatrade game, is it not time they were looking to loan him out somewhere?

ORFC - yes, you'd think so.
I think it could maybe taken as a compliment to him, as they prefer the in-house training for the more junior of players. The way it was explained to me was they see training with Bielsa as more valuable than training with lesser developed coaching set ups. Also bare in mind Bielsa's teams unique playing style.
Those who are at the age that they need be playing, and those that are not going to make it, are the ones who are leaving on loan.
Edmundson won't make it at Leeds, rumoured to be going to Bradford. McAlmont highly thought of but needs games and doing well at Oldham. Gotts probably in the middle of the two. Sephens probably on his way out.

Yes, I bet he was in awe at the weekend. "Ah, Senor Bielsa, this is magnificent. Mr Sheridan could not lose 3-0 to league 2 cloggers like this" :D

Nah, sorry, I suppose U-23 football reduces the risk of injury as well, he seemed to pick up tweaks and stuff quite a bit - looking at the dev squad page, what is the point of a keeper going on loan to haverfordwest - that's really not a signal a premier league team think you have it is it? You might as well play down the park for that level of football.

In my opinion we currently have 3 19 year olds at the club who will play regularly at a higher level in time than McCarron.

This u23 football is bollox.

He has missed quite a few games at Leeds as well.
I still think he will make it, buy maybe at championship level. Worst thing for the youngsters was Leeds getting promoted.

Two different things Redders, so not really a true comparison. Never been a bigger gap in terms of the type of football as now. Tackling is almost outlawed in the Prem and physicality is the staple diet of L2, and that is why the players are groomed to be technical players at the prem clubs.
Also why the players coming out from the Prem and Championship on loan struggle on the whole, or teams get mullered in the Paint Pot trophy (with some exceptions).
Way too early to say whether any of the current youngsters will play at a higher level, but none were receiving the reviews McCarron was.

Good points but I think you will find they aren't getting the same coverage because other players in the club are doing really well hence where we are in the league.

McCarron was a bright spark in a poor team. Wingers catch the eye.
