All football clubs like to trot out the same announcements in advance of every transfer window. ”we will only be adding to the squad if the players available are better than what we have” That may be true for the likes of Man City but for a lot of fans that’s code for we’re skint, or has been the case in recent seasons there isn’t the value for money in the English market anymore. So we’re looking abroad. Enter Victor Orta and many other talent gurus ! The only observation I make for THIS league (personally I think we need 5-6 players) is that everyone can beat anyone every single week. Following the initial few weeks ALL the other leagues find their natural equilibrium so that mini leagues are created. Bristol won at the blades last night to go third, both of those teams have spent very little money in comparison to Villa, Boro it even ourselves. BUT Bristol won with almost the exact same team that we beat 3-0 at their place? Probably more questions than answers here, but just maybe it’s about more than always buying, it’s also about the Manager, Team Spirit, Confidence and I believe our biggest need just now Leaders on the pitch. I still want my 5-6 players but that’s not the whole solution, Leaders, enforcers is the clear priority I would give to any player bought in this window irrespective of the position they play.

Agree class. There isn't a team in this league that would have made play offs last year. They are all crap. Buying non established english or euros is a risk. Better to spend big buck on proven players or good scout or management. Monk was useless but we are not a team like last year! We are lots of individuals having good games randomly!

We got 16 at the start of the season surely someone should know what they doing clearly not, now we need 5 or 6,we had a good side at the end of last season add 3 or 4 tothat would have cost less than the 20 or so we bought in and the cost is another season in this league, sound business.

Good point Class, think Aus has been at the Fosters again! Wolves and Cardiff don't look crap to me and come to think of it neither do we. I have seen 5 games at Elland Road this year and honestly, the team spirit is there. This is a good team, better than last year, learning but good. Play offs are still there for the taking and we have the chance to build a bit of stability. Reasons to be cheerful!

Thanks Spanish that was the point I’m trying to convey, as a Leeds fan I’d like 5-6 ( areas for improvement for me are goalie, left back, centre half, goal scoring winger and another forward) BUT my point was, this team with TC on point, team spirit and togetherness which confidence follows can make the playoffs and can beat anyone on their day. Sorry Whiteman lost me with the 4-0?
