Leif Davis

Post by 1964white » Thu Aug 29, 2019 10:11 am

Deserves his own thread

This young lad could quite easily become a regular in our First XI ahead of all the kids touted on here.

I'll stick with my initial comment after the Bristol City game, 'Davis defensively is better than Douglas & Alioski'

And I stated it after seeing him in one of the pre-season games.
Our best left back defensively no question.

Does MB want a defensive left back though?

If that's right, he has a good leap on him.
Looked a 5'10 to me.

One site has Leif as 5'4" :shock:

Maybe that was his height as a 12yo kid

I was close to the pitch when I saw the U23's at Colchester and when he was on our side of the pitch he looked about the same height as me - 5'9"

Leeds were dealt an injury blow as defender Leif Davis had to be withdrawn in the 23rd minute in the U23's game v Bristol City

Fully backing this deal, Davis is only 19yo & arguably our best kid out of the U23's

Told you he was decent, our best LB imo!

Delighted, great signing to go along with Klich. LB is there for him to take if he can. If he does does do we see Douglas move on in January? Replace him with a CB
