Good Morning. Its Thursday 28th November, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...

If Nketiah stays, don't expect any transfer activity in January

Phil Hay has been talking about potential Leeds signings during the January transfer window, and unfortunately its not good news. The usual suspects of Dwight Gayle, Matěj Vydra and Jarrod Bowen were quickly struck off the Leeds fans wish list for the following reasons:-

Almost certainly, Dwight Gayle will be going to Nottingham Forest in January.

Matej Vydra messed Leeds about last Summer (and due to the lack of game time he has had in the last 18 months, wouldn't be able to keep up with Bielsaball).

Hull forward Jarrod Bowen would be an amazing signing, but with a lack of cash and financial fair play getting in the way, the deal would seem extremely unlikely.

The Ex Yorkshire Evening Post Chief football writer went on to say that if Nketiah stays in January, he doesn't think Leeds will make any signing in January.

Nketiah resumes training today

Eddie Nketiah is set to return to training today following his lower abdominal injury. The on loan Gooner has a ratio of a goal a game for the England U21's and was set to start his first league match of the season when injury struck!

Due to his age and overall fitness, it is believed that the 20 year old will be fit for selection next week against Huddersfield! Should Bielsa change the tactics so to involve Nketiah from the start? Will Bielsa give Nketiah the start he was promised, if so, will he drop Bamford?

There are only seven games to go until the New Year! How many starts between now and the New Year would you imagine Nketiah will start?

Boro win for the first time since mid September

Saturdays opponents Middlesbrough won their first match since mid September in what can /only be described as a dire game.

The only goal of the game came on 54 minutes when Ashley 'thank god Leeds didn't sign him' Fletcher capitalised on a glaring mistake and rolled the ball into an empty net. This led to a frenzy of activity on social media including 'the club had turned a corner' and 'bring on Leeds'.

Whilst I'm not saying Boro are in trouble, I did hear that Gazza has just arrived at the Riverside Stadium with a fishing rod, and a bucket of chicken!!!
