Leicester Step In Where Leeds Fear To Tread


Whilst Leeds have agreed to buy Ryan Hall for the princely sum of £150,000, Leicester City may be about to pull off a major coup by landing young West Brom and Millwall striker Chris Wood.
 
Wood, who has been pulling up trees this season in the Championship for Millwall, proved his worth to Old Big Gob Warnock when he netted the Lions' winner against Leeds. He would appear to fit the bill perfectly for Leeds, being strong, mobile, young and an ideal alternative to Bechio. And at £2m, he shouldn't break even the GFH Capital bank.
 
Wood has netted 11 times in 19 appearances this season, credentials which should encourage all ambitious teams in the Championship to run the rule over him. Frankly, I'm surprised West Brom are entertaining a sale because the lad looks to have genuine potential.
 
It's a doubly clever move by Leicester as Pearson's squad is strengthened at the expense of play off rivals Millwall. The weakening of the Lions is good news for Warnock but Leeds fans might be wondering why this prime opportunity has been missed. Perhaps the new owners are trying to do it on the cheap after all.

    1. Read what Warnock wrote. He can't compete financially with Leicester and hopes to tie up hiis loan signings. So that's Tinge who has the makings of another Danny.Pugh and gasn't plated for.Stoke in 4 years; Hall who isn't good enough to get in rhe team; Tate who is slow and past it and can't play in rhe same side as Pearce and Thomas who is ineffectual and looks like he does.'t want to play when its cold. Goodbye promotion for this season.

  2. Wait... Are you a West Ham fan? I'm confused. Every single one of your posts seems to be passively based on Leeds.

    1. You may not have noticed but this is a new site, unconstrained by my personal affiliation. There will be threads on all clubs in the news on here. For West Ham news, follow the link to the West Ham site which is now exclusively about West Ham.

    2. Leeds have a number of key targets. Do West Ham? Leeds are not perfect but West Ham are a disaster in the near future!

  4. I'm not sure this is a good idea having both a Leeds site and a West Ham site, hf. People will constantly compare the 2 sites for number of hits and articles etc.

    In addition I'm sure you noticed that a large proportion of comments left on your West Ham articles were actually from Leeds fans. This could leave you open to ridicule if no one comments on these articles anymore (Appyammer and Dagenham Dave don't count btw).

    1. This is not a Leeds site, it is a football site. Leeds feature for that reason. I may break my own rules and write about cricket sometimes too.

  5. Erm, £2m on a player who wouldn't make the starting line up? Becchio will remain number 1, 14 goals in 23 league matches says so.

    Woods looks a good prospect alright, but if Warnock is spending £2m on 1 player, he needs to be a first team starter and match winner, it might not be a large sum to many clubs but its still big money for us in recent years.

    1. Will Warnock play two up top? If not, this forward he is looking for will either replace Bechio or understudy him. Couldn't Wood play alongside Bechio anyway?

    1. Same old impotent, bitter, twisted hatred I see. Didn't Wood impress you when he netted that winner against Leeds? Don't you think he would improve your squad? Are you happy to see him join Leicester instead. The trouble is, I touch raw nerves.
