Somma never quite fulfilled his early potential in an injury ragged career
Yeah such a shame for him and the club.

Somma was a class act, such a shame his career was derailed due to injury. A proper natural finisher, had he stayed fit we may have struggled to hold onto him

Have to say even though this transfer window has been low-key so far, signing Chelsea young players on loan that usually end up at the likes of Brentford is impressive

Can we have Hazard as our marquee loan signing please ;-) :) my god I would wet myself at the prospect of watching him play for Leeds. A visit to Boots for the essential attire would be a must :lol:

and Antonsson departure.
I knew Antonsson wasn't good enough for the championship, far too lightweight.

Three managers obviously didn't fancy him. Now he is back in the average Swedish league

I was never really happy with that signing either Leon tbh, only really seemed to be signed based on a good run of form 10 goals in 12 games before signing for us, his goalscoring record has never really been very impressive.
Also a keen Barcelona supporter since 2004-2005 (when they were average.)

We have a habit of bringing in players who are not enough for the championship :(

Blackman will be a huge boost to our defence, a commanding keeper to gobble up crosses will help our defence settle, Douglas too, I really hope he will instill some fight and confidence in players around him.
Just hope we are looking for a cb to at least replace Pennington.

A CB & two strikers must be a priority now

Thought his positioning was suspect, and seemed a little slow to react once or twice. Maybe early day jitters but something to keep an eye on. Should be an upgrade on Weidwald, not sure he's an upgrade on BPF

Agree here. Also wasn't great coming for crosses tbh. Hopefully it was just unfamiliarity with his defence and it'll improve with game time.

Shaughnessy back in training. If he can improve on last season he'd definitely be a good option for the defensive mid role. 6'3" as well.

Updated to include arrival of Patrick Bamford, and (I might be getting ahead of myself here, as not yet announced on official site) departures of Ronaldo Vieira and Hadi Sacko.

O'Kane, Ekuban, Anita, Ideguchi ?

Ideguchi provides cover if we don't get another midfielder and can't complain about making a name in U-23s
Anita - will have to stay until Xmas due to injury
O'Kane - obviously not in plans and can't see him in U23s - move to happen?
Ekuban - could play in U23s - surprised he hasn't gone out on loan already
I was there when Batty scored

Bielsa spoke about u23 keeper Will Huffer in his presser today, so I presume he's above Miazek in the order?

Blackman
BPF
Will Huffer
Kamil Miazek,
Dimitar Sheytanov
Harrison Male

I'd imagine, we're not short of young keepers..Thought Male did well recently and I'd have also thought once acclimatized Sheytanov will be the number 3 choice..
