Re: I'll asked the question again

I've always been a big believer in giving managers time. I've just about run out of patience now though. TC got the job because he said he'd change things when they aren't working . He doesn't. Poor Grot isn't ready, but TC keeps making him suffer. Roofe & Alioski haven't put a decent ball in the bo...

Re: January transfer rumours and squad discussion

Andrea is building us a solid core. Weidwald in place. Pontus in place. Samu and Pablo in place. Forshaw and De Bok possibly.
Kalvin and Ronaldo in place, and gaining experience ready for the step up.
Is there an emergency loan window like in the summer?

Re: January transfer rumours and squad discussion

The strategy all seems to be pinned on " buying cheaply and hoping they make it good " I know there are no guarantees with spending big bucks but one would have thought we would have gone for a little more in this window. Yes we have spent £10m but as Noel Whelan rightly said the other day, £10m fo...

Re: January signings

Agree yes we need a striker but this signing seems like yet another Orta disaster imo! Since Antenucci joined SPAL, he has scored 24 goals in 51 appearances, and they are (now) playing in Serie A. Antenucci was a good striker. We just didn't feed him the ball to feet. High balls in the area suit bi...

http://sportwitness.co.uk/second-source-confirms-e7m-leeds-united-transfer-e5m-paid-front/ If true then can someone explain how £5mill up front (forget the 2mil add ons).

Re: January transfer rumours and squad discussion

The club clearly has a stratagey, they are looking to build a solid foundation, one the club has not had for a long time, a solid youth squad is an important start, one which they are investing, wisely, who knows. But can people stop moaning about it! How many times have we seen clubs like Swansea,...

Re: January signings

Yeah, Dack went to Blackburn for 750k plus add ons, Dean cost Birmingham £1.5m, Maddison was available in the summer for about £1m before he signed a new deal on the last day of the transfer window. Oh I see. I was thinking of Marriott. He was £6m. I thought Maddison was a winger. I haven't seen th...

Im still sad about Dean, Dack and Maddison who would have cost the same combined as Saiz on his own :roll:
I thought Saiz was only £3.5m wasn't he?

Re: January signings

I am just glad we never got a fans consortium running the club and just going to splash loads of cash on proven players every time because we all know that every proven player is automatically going to be a success so definitely worth paying over the odds. No point having people at the club who can...

https://www.footballinsider247.com/sources-leeds-will-not-make-january-signings/ :( Some things never change I think that's probably bulls*it. We have Roofe and Super Lasogga, but other than that, Wilks was the closest to a place on the bench as an out and out centre-forward, and we've let him go o...

Re: January signings

Seems fairly obvious to me. We are trying to get in as many promising youngsters as we can because the success rate of promising youngsters becoming really good first team footballers is low so we are simply improving the odds that we will get some good players in future years. I just don't see why...

Re: January transfer rumours and squad discussion

He has a 5 goals in 6 games record when starting as the main striker. He is versatile which TC said early on he wanted his players to be. Can't complain at five goals in six games. I'd prefer someone experienced in our league, but he sounds worth a risk. I'm surprised we don't get many Argentinians...

Mahi is a left-winger. We need a centre-forward.

Re: January transfer rumours and squad discussion

I am underwhealmed by the deals we have done during this transfer window. We seem to be going for teens, and nobody with experience in scoring goals in this league. At the moment we have 4 suspensions, and have shipped Klich out and demoted Grot to the U23's, Without a vision the people perish... a...

Just keep going. The lion isn't catching up anyway, and they aren't known for running for very long.
