Delph, Cook and Veira have been the best academy players sold from our club in last 5 years. Byram and Taylor just behind them.
I hope they go for massive money. Especially Veira.
I saw Delph for the first time at Chester. I thought they'd signed some experienced top professional unknown to me as he looked so good. I couldn't believe it when it turned out to be some young lad from the reserves.
I thought he left too early though and it's good to see him get back on track . Same goes for Cook who also as a kid looked a class above his team mates. Somewhat surprising really as he played in the same team as David Norrissey if my memory serves.
Byram and Taylor have still got it to do and dicking about in the reserves ain't going to help them that much bank balance aside.
Hopefully Viera's move to Italy will go well as like all young players he's a bit inconsistant at the moment.
I'm sad he's gone and it's possible he has gone too early but if you're going to be inconsistant as you develop Leeds is not the place to do it given our huge internet/social media bipolar fanbase.
And Sampdoria have a fuckin class kit.
