Picture this, christiansen becomes a hero by persuading bartley to sign, cooper steps up and says he'll play left back (as he's played there for a lot of his youth, is fairly moible, and actually left footed) and we create the strongest defence in the league, ideguchi comes in alongside vieira, saiz at number 10, a striker signs like prijovic or kuwas and gets 8/10 goals before may, leeds go up, keep all our best players, sign a new winger and wilks breaks through, let go of a few of the dead wood like sacko, klich, cibicki. shaugnessy becomes a unit at the back and we sign a solid goalkeeper like adrian from west ham. i'd say all that is required for this is 20 million? a multimillionaire who has bought us came in over the summer and just so happened to spend 17m on our church, do you really think he'd skint himself on a stadium and not sign great players who can play there? all i'm saying is wait on until the 31st before you start writing us off. He knows we've got a solid february, and christiansen will probably telling him that orta needs more money to sign bigger names, so he'll probably just dip into bank account number 2 for another 20 million, and when we win the play offs in extra time against villa we'll be laughing at the 100million he's just got back. simple right?

Samo, I like it. Have you been in Wetherspoon's for their January sales with the Mad one?

the way you put it Samo it sounds simple enough. You had me all the way to solid goalkeeper, Adrian but I applaud your sentiment; which is, we are nearly there.

Financial fair play rules mean we won't be spending that sort of cash unless we're raiding burnley's piggy bank again

In fairness, adrian may have been a long shot, interesting to see how well udders have done with their recruitment this year, that lossl looks a steal, malone, ince, mounie, and jorgensen have all been good signings, now they've signed a defender from monaco. makes you wonder doesn't it how much internationals would love to play in the premier league, says a lot about the league and the desire to get into it. In their defence it opens your eyes to why wood, cook, taylor, howson, beckford all wanted it so bad. Hoping we sign some intelligent players that see the potential in leeds and want to be a part of it. so many teams now are proving that they can compete with the big boys, and i have serious respect for the bournemouths and burnleys up there who still play their own style with the same manager and good recruitment week in week out, let's hope for something similar, but with a bit of our spanish flair thrown in the mix. i'm positive about the team. This time last year everybody said we could go up, and in fairness to the snake, we had every chance. However there wasnt as much of an eye for gems and the only real icons that he signed were jansson and bartley, and even then bartley didn't like it enough to force his way back. But now we have new ownership, scouts, media representatives, coaching staff, and a far better PR team doing all of the social media work and putting leeds back on the map. So again this year may not be our year, but my previous post suggests that we have again, every chance, in what i think is a far better position than 12 months ago to go and do the same. If you believed monk could do it, you should be believing a hell of a lot more that christiansen will. I think he will, skin of our teeth stuff, but either way, what a season were having considering such changes.

Adrian is 1st choice for Wet Sham at the moment isn't he? can't see him dropping to Championship level.

Don't think FFP will be an issue as we brought in over £23 million in fees in the summer window

Problem is with financial fair play is not all of that wood and Taylor money went straight in our account Would be paid over instalments So although we may think we have money to spend now, in actual fact we haven't Plus it includes wages and I suspect a few of these new lads and longer contracts handed out will eat into that income Seem to remember rads saying he'd spent £100m so far ( including the ground, which is outside any ffp ) Let's hope we have better accountants now
