Good Morning. It's Tuesday 27th July, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...
Leeds fans growing anxious
With just over two weeks until Leeds kick off their new season, and rivalry at Old Trafford, many Leeds fans are becoming anxious that the club have not been more active in the transfer market.
Mark Jackson will have no complaints though. Victor Orta have been busy selecting 'the cream of the crop' as they face the elite within their respective age groups. First team activity has been slow though. Whilst they have fulfilled their main objective by bringing in a quality left back to replace Alioski, (and nobody is going to whinge about Firpo) activity remains low, even though speculation continuous to be rife
Whilst the club are excited about landing Norwegian U21 shot stopper Kristoffer Klaesson, he is unlikely to have any impact on the forthcoming season, with Meslier in the form he is in! Conor Gallagher would be another underwhelming signing according to most Whites on social media. Parent club Chelsea have made it clear that they have no intention of a permanent switch, leaving fans wondering why bother develop another Ben White?
Roberts - We've got to push for some European spaces
In a recent interview on LUTV, Tyler Roberts has revealed that he and his fellow team mates have ambitions about pushing on this forthcoming season, for European places.
All of the boys will agree we've got to push for some European spaces. I don't think we're ever going to be a type of team that looks back and says 'we did well to get where we were, but will this season be a bit different?' "We just look up and push for better than we're doing.”
It was good to get that experience of the Euros and to be in the environment, but I am back now and ready to go again. The magnitude of the tournament, you know how big the Euros are and the World Cup, but until you go and you’re part of it, it’s a whole different level.
I realised when I was there the whole talk around Wales, England, everything was the Euros and I was actually there. It was a crazy experience and one I was blessed to be a part of.
Do Leeds have the squad to push for a European place?
