Good Morning. It's Thursday 16th January, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...
Leeds joint favourites to land Newcastle Ace
The bookies have Leeds as joint favourites to land Dwight Gayle from St James Park. The Toon forward 29, is get to get off the mark after nine appearances, and with time running out in the transfer window, Leeds have to replace Nketiah.
Che Adams No
Billy Sharp No
Andre Grey No
Rhian Brewster No
Yet another potential target has signed with one of our competitors. Seagulls veteran Glenn Murray is heading for the City ground.
A troubled Leeds fan tweeted Phil Hay yesterday asking him “How confident are Leeds of securing all three deals,
Never one to mix his words, the former Chief Football writer for the YEP candidly replied "You have to say that if they drop the ball again this window they’re truly screwed.”
Is this Leeds last chance if they realistically want automatic promotion?
Eddie Nketiah is staying at Arsenal
Having impressed Mikel Arteta in training over the last fortnight, the 19 year old has been asked to stay at the Emirates and is set for more game time than he got at Leeds! How does that make sense?
This will come as a bitter blow to Bristol City. I'm sure we all send our condolences.
Do Leeds miss Jansson
Six months after his transfer, Pontus Jansson's Brentford sit one place and six points below the Whites, and are the only Club in the Championship to have a better goal difference than Leeds!
Do Leeds miss Jansson?
Is he better than Cooper?
Did Bielsa have to get rid of Jansson, so he could bring Ben White in?
We need to remember that nobody expected White to come of age the way he did, especially as his previous loan spells were confined to the lower leagues. I'm sure even Bielsa is gobsmacked the way the young seagull has settled in. My point is, gaining White's fee would have been negligible!
Did Bielsa get rid of Jansson as the two did not get on?
It was obvious after the Villa game when Bielsa instructed Leeds to let the Villans walk the ball into the net that there was tension between the two. That was confirmed when Jansson was omitted from the play off second leg when Leeds defence fell apart and Derby scored four. Looking back at the Derby game, was it the right decision to leave Jansson benched?
Do you think that the other 91 league Managers get on with all their players? I can tell you for a fact they don't, but for the good of the club they put up with the moaning prima donna's!
Did Leeds need the money? Let's have a look to see what Leeds got out of the deal....
Would the negligible amount Leeds received have any impact whatsoever on FFP or to boost their kitty baring in mind the size of the club?
