gessa wrote:Probably never been great at the sweeper system because we've never had the right manager or players to play it, this is a new dawn let's embrace it, the last 13 years have hardly been thrilling. Last season we finished 7th and whatever the reason was for that it wasn't good enough, if the owners/manager look at last season and think only 4/5 of the team were good enough then so be it. Radz is being portrayed as a god presently but his ultimate goal is to get us to the premier league ASAP,he's not doing it for the love of Leeds United, he's doing it to make money so I trust what he's doing to get us there, I feel we're in safe hands now.

Spot on!

I know all of our players should get a fresh start with the new manager, but i hope someone warns TC to watch him. Bad attitude destroying team spirit, is the last thing we need.

Definitely. Needs a full season of development playing full strength competitive football. Ideally should have happened couple of years ago but better late than never.

They must be confident of getting at least one more fb in as all we have is Ayling and Berardi. Denton looks like he may be going on loan too, Swindon looking likely.

Yes I can see several new players arriving, we were short of quality in all positions last season, one of the reasons we blew a top-six place.

Makes sense as both Coyle & Denton are nowhere near ready for the first team on a regular basis yet !

apparently you have to lose more than an average of 13 million a year for three years to fall foul of FPP

Looking around it appears there is some confusion on his position, RB, LB and central midfield all been mentioned, he apparently prefers the midfield role.

From the leeds subreddit....

"As a Newcastle fan, that's a great signing to be honest.

I would have taken him at Newcastle this season and was sad when we let him go.

He's performed well 90% of the time. He's a great passer of the ball and has great ball control. Similar sort of player to Lahm (but obviously nowhere near that level). He can make the midfield tick if you have a destroyer next to him. Especially at championship level.

I still think he's better in midfield than full back, purely because he's 5 ft 4 and can get bullied there at times even when his positional sense is great."
