I keep reading that the Leeds fans should be excited about all the new signings that the club is making. I am sure that it may be beneficial in the future, either for the 1st Team or financially but not now. The signings are either for loaning out or for the development squad. This not helping the team now. We have brought in a left back who might not do much better than Berardi. De Bok is a good defender but is not renowned for going forward and creating things further up the pitch. Berardi can do that. I think the Belgian was coming here before Ayling was injured - so nothing much to be excited about there. He could have just been an understudy for Berardi. Or, alternatively Berardi would have nowhere else to play except by displacing Ayling. He won't, therefore, make the team that much better in the short term at least. We still need other players to make us progress. It may be that top 6 this year will be just seen as a bonus by the management - who knows but there are at least 6 or 7 teams that are at least as good, or better, than us at the moment. As it stands without any more additions I think we are looking at finishing between 8th and 12th.

According to the league table, there are 5 teams better than us. And how do you think that signing a left back won't improve the team, by the fact that we don't currently have one then the team must be improved

Agree with most of what you say Hess, but sure am glad we have someone to put in at left back leaving us free to play Beradi on the right now that Ayling is out.

Because I don't think he will be much better than Beradi. He is a very good defender but doesn't give us enough going forward. DE Bok appears to be the same. League table does not show everything. Apart from the 5 above us Fulham, Middlesborough, Sheffield Utd and maybe even Brentford could do better than us. Not forgetting Ipswich. The way we are playing we could struggle against any on of those teams.

And they can all struggle against us too. Or Burton, or Brum etc. that's the thing with this league! An off day against any team will see you beaten, and every team has off days.
