    If Leeds got their finger out & signed the player I am in my dreams, then we'd win everything we played for! :D

    John Giles cost £33000, and that’s the only one that comes to mind. So, no.

    He did make a redemption,by refusing to score against us, and his being distraught when his team Leicester, scored against us.

    Bobby Collins was £25k. No idea what that would equate to today but it was a bargain

    Indeed, and more equivalent to a Pablo in being near the end of his career. Giles was only 23 when we bought him for that princely sum.

    Not a like for like because not a free... but We got strachan for £200k when his career was supposedly tailing off. Similar effect of a guy who gelled a team and led by example.

    Snodgrass was £35k and Beckford £45k absolute steals. Kisnorbo was a free, we actually need that scout here now

    I thought Beckford was a free from Wealdstone?

    Grateful for the goal from Pablo last night, I may just have forgiven him for last years penalty miss against Wigan.

    Morning all. It was a lot of money at the time considering his age, but I thought he was still one of the best inside forwards in the country. It turned out to be the best investment Leeds could have made. He was the leader that the young Leeds team wanted he made them into a real team.
