New Players

Post by MalRich »

Disappointing no new senior players added, we will have a great u23 team though, when will we learn get the players we need, White, Eze and Edouard to start, must have had a fair bank balance before promotion payment, especially with the loans we had, come on Leeds get your you fingers out, and no panic buys!

You're disappointed that we’ve no new senior players and end by saying “No panic buys” So what do you want? We’ve never been in such a good state for decades, sensible people running the club and the best manager we could wish for, stay calm and let’s see in a few weeks who’s been brought in.

Oh good this again ...
I wanted to flash this watch, I flash it all the time. It's my antique pocket watch and it makes me look British...and I need that for my analysis. It is a gorgeous gold pocket watch however and I'm very proud of it. You see my grandfather, on his death bed, ..sold me this watch!

Pre season starts today, no new senior players added, except Costa and Meslier, desperate for a cb all other areas we could just about get by with, White good not worth £30m + and a risk, apparently Stones available £20m Biesla links with Man City be a steal, always seem too late for the players we desperately need, come on Leeds get the quality we need please 🙏🏼

We need players brought in soon or they'll be playing u23s until December. I really thought we'd have someone in by now, but if we spend all summer chasing Ben White and sign no one else, it genuinely would not surprise me.
I promise to be positive only for 20/21 :)

Really ..? I didn't, except adding to the academy. Always saw this as a difficult process for us this season. Not expecting too much before September tbh..

We'll be mad if we don't make a couple of big signings. We'll end up doing a Norwich otherwise.

Need a new centre back and a backup centre back.

New centre mid to go with Klich and KP as Hernandez clearly can't play full games atm anyway.

Need probably anly a third winger ideally to challenge Harrison and Costa.

Need a striker to replace PB as first choose (hopefully!) or at the very least as backup.

3 essential signings there and two realistically "needs"

Because we always need them in early, otherwise they're playing catch up fitness wise and will be playing u23s. We need at least two starters in before the first game imo.

Right now we haven't got the dependable Berardi to stand in at CB after his serious injury at Derby

Desperately short on experienced CB's atm

Was always going to be the way in this corona hit very short off season. I think this year of all years we'll have to play a waiting game. Buy early and you buy more expensively. I think we could still get White in Oct for 20 odd mil plus add ons

MB does nothing quickly anyway, if we're moving targets he may want a week or two to access
