Rumour - Saeid Ezatolahi

by Sutekh » 29 May 2019 11:17

Bit of an odd one this. Whereas we can be reasonably confident JG would bring back the other 5 loanees if he could, we still don't really know if he sees Eza in the same bracket.

However Eza is attacting the interest of Leeds apparently.

Not really a rumour for us, the article doesn’t mention we’re interested.

With his injury record, I see no logic in joining a team who's style of play involves running around at a high tempo, kicking people

I thought that was Sandro Weiser.

Fair enough, he's only had 1 major injury but it was a groin injury that kept him out for nigh on 8 months.

This whole rumour shows the ridiculousness of football transfer stories.

1. FLW writer comes up with a story suggesting who Leeds might look at, to replace Kalvin Phillips if he leaves.
2. Because (him being a Reading fan), he suggests Ezatolahi, some Iranian football website picks up tht part of the piece - pretty much word for word - but gives it the title "has been linked with Leeds". Linked by a student journo, writing stuff for free, mate!
3. Then the ReadingFC news aggregator TalkReading picks the story back up again, from the Iranian website, and says Leeds "strongly linked with" Ezatolahi.
4. And thus we get the link that started this thread saying "Leeds keen to sign"

Good grief!

muirinho, I hear ya.
The ‘Swift to Leeds’ thread ran for 5 pages in here.
In part, because it was said, he was our most sale-able asset.
Last week, that was Gomes.
Week b4, it was Loader.
Stay tuned...

Funny that trail there, but yes that FL world site is going to get lots of that as there are loads of ‘players xxxx should buy’ Articles on there

At least the Loader etc rumours actually came from a journo presumably with some inside info

I don't know why we would keep him while injured for the whole season if we had no strong interest in keeping him here permenantly

I think the initial deal was a loan with a perm option. I expect we'd committed to paying his wages etc and he'd basically packed his bags at Rostov, so was worth him hanging around in case we needed him. And we came to close to playing him again.

I'm not sure I'd read too much into it. JLow reckons he was on/ would want a hefty wage, but not too sure where he is getting that info

Much as I prefer playing with a taller player sitting in the CDM role, don't think that's how Gomes operates, his preferred three of Rino, Baker and Swift are all smaller, more agile players. Therefore, didn't think there was much chance of Eza featuring anyway unless we had a major injury crisis

Would be very surprised if he came back on the basis of that. And also, we can't afford to buy injury prone players with tight finances

Yeah it was all pretty silly - I had a feeling the Iranian website had took this rumour from my article as soon as I saw Talk Reading's tweet about it. Why an Iranian website would copy parts of my (a first year uni student journalist as an intern at FLW I must reinforce, not a professional journalist) article word for word is puzzling. Won't be the last time it happens with some of these types of websites :lol:

I think Gomes cares about quality and attitude not height.

Mind you, that doesn't explain him using Swift and not Kelly. So maybe I'm wrong. :wink:
