Weidwald signs. Hopefully he's a good signing! Thoughts?

His stats are nothing to get excited about but that was in a top league with a bad defence in front of him so time will tell. We must of seen something in him and if he is as good as they say it's an amazing signing for the fee!

Top league with a bad defence? I think your find they had a much much better defence than what we have at Leeds.

Our new gk conceded 114 goals in 59 games onwards and upwards guys think we are on to a winner with this signing lmao. His club had a 36 year old replace him in the end lol

They finished 8th in the Bundasliga and he played 30 odd games. He did concede a fair few, but I don't know what the rest of the team was like. Read some of their fans posts and some say he is good and some say he can have a nightmare. Haven't seen him so can't call it, but I get the feeling from what I have read we already have a keeper like him already in Silvestri 🤔

Swad. i'm a pretty neg guy but you! ? Ed, can i be the first to officially tell swad to; become a scholar and a gentleman.

Swad Jordan Pickford conceded 56 in 30 appearances, Everton paid £30 million for him, does that mean we got a bargain ?

Swad it's also a better league with better attacking players so it doesn't mean much

The bundesliga has better attackers I mean

Ofc it does lol he averages 2 goals per game in his last 2 seasons. They replaced him quickly for a reason.

Yeah but they also have better defenders than at Leeds else they wouldn't be in the top league in germany

Really swad? The stats say Werder Bremen allowed the most shots on goal per game of any team in the bundasliga. And that Weidwald made the most saves per game of any keeper in the league. Remember when we sold Kaspar to Leicester and signed Lonergan instead because we leaked too many goals? schmeichel had won the PL before we stopped haemorrhaging goals. Was Kaspar the problem? Evidently not. Likewise Weidwald cannot necessarily be blamed for werder bremens lack of defensive solidarity.

14.) 02 Jul 2017
02 Jul 2017 14:54:34
Yes we will

15.) 02 Jul 2017
02 Jul 2017 15:08:43
Why's that? Ask any fan of his last club and they will tell you he was awful, he didn't make the most saves in the league at all he conceded the most goals yes, they eventually used drobny as his replacement who is 36.

I think so doesn't say much about him does it? Kasper won the league with Leicester because they had players like kante, huth and Morgan protecting his goal, if Kasper was playing for West ham then you would see he's not worth the 50 mill he's being talked about.

At Leeds he didn't look great in any way so it's all to do with the team around him and I'm sorry but our defence in the championship is not going to be better than a defence for a team in the German league is it.

I wonder if you've like any player in the history of Leeds. I can imagine you sat on the coach, Leeds 2-0 up and you would still be picking holes out of leeds. Pull your head in swad

Stop whinging now. Whinge 10 games in. see if you can show a bit of restraint

Obviously I do like some of the players, but most of the players at Leeds are not good enough, players like ayling, berardi, Taylor, bridcutt, doukara and wood I like because they all show effort, the rest no I don't rate.

maybe Ronaldo but he shouldn't be starting as often neither, if you want promotion you need goals from midfield and our midfield was one of the lowest goal scoring midfields last season. this is why ive said I like klitch because he's got more about him than say Kelvin Philips so that's an improvement but the gk move if we are to sell green is a step backwards.

You might be happy watching Leeds struggle to get out of the championship aussielufc but I'm not. I want Leeds to show some vision and actually be in with a chance of promotion. as others have said, Leeds won a lot last season which they didn't deserve so 7th placed flattered Leeds.

it was embarrassing watching sometimes at how boring Leeds were and yes that's down to the manager monk but I can't remember when we were last an exciting team under any manager. Leeds have always been predictable for along time now. I want more from Leeds united than most of you seem too.

At what point did I say I like seeing them struggle? The fact of the matter is I know the squad isn't good enough, I 100% agree with it. But I'm also optimistic and I like to see movement in the right direction for once. In the last 7-8 years I can't remember any decent movement or atleast attempts to better this squad. This is why I'm sick of all the negativity, just get behind the squad and just hope they perform. The lad won't stand a chance if he is slated before he even signs a contract. That's all I'm saying. I also agree with most of the players showing effort that you listed except Taylor, I can honestly say I have never thought highly of Taylor, and while I never thought he was terrible, I also never thought he was fantastic

There's wanting more for Leeds and then there's expecting miracles. Like I said pull your head in and support, don't moan because we aren't signing top quality talent because like you said, we haven't been a great team for a long time, so when bigger clubs come sniffing around they aren't even taking a second look at Leeds, that's why I don't expect more. So from now on don't just assume nobody else wants more for Leeds. There is nothing more in the whole world I want more than to see Leeds host top teams at elland road again

22.) 03 Jul 2017
03 Jul 2017 14:01:54
And I will agree we played boring football and didn't deserve even 7th. Don't just assume people are against you swad, just be more open minded

23.) 03 Jul 2017
03 Jul 2017 14:50:41
When listing players who show effort. you think of taylor? the childhood leeds supporter who refused to play last season? real effort there swad

24.) 03 Jul 2017
03 Jul 2017 22:18:25
Yeah when Taylor played for Leeds united he was a player who never lacked effort, he gave what he had when he was picked, and he wants out now to better himself at another team and the only way to make that happen fast is by rufusing to play which is fair enough.

I wouldn't want him to play if he didn't want to be here so don't get why people now don't like him, let him go, thank him for his time here and move on, he's not unreplaceable because I thought berardi did just as good last season.

I do think Leeds need to improve quite abit to challenge for the top 6. Especially the midfield.

Midfield was the weakest area by far and I think with klich and saiz we add depth. I have a good feeling about klich, hopefully saiz is a decent player to and they can give wood better service. Adding midfielders to this squad is never a bad thing. Just need a centre half now, a winger and a left back to either start or cover berardi

26.) 04 Jul 2017
04 Jul 2017 09:24:04
Fair enough, I just really don't want to see Hernandez starting as many games as he did last season, he's a ok player but for me he's the one who irritates me the most with his lack of a killer pass or shot. Only time will tell I suppose.

27.) 04 Jul 2017
04 Jul 2017 12:49:16
I think if we do sign saiz that will push Hernandez to the bench as an impact player. I really hope Roofe continues to improve this year, lads got the ability and heart, his problem is inconsistency
