@mrsentah I haven't heard much about Forsell but you are spot on. I think/hope that bates isn't looking to make strides this year to avoid wasting money. i think he's biding his time and waiting for next year when a few of the stronger clubs can move up meaning less competition, thats the only form of logic I can put behind they way we've been operating this summer. Liverpool look very strong though this year, very impressed so far.

I have to say with the potential signing of has been Mikel Forsell i would definately be worried this year @nickdent1990. Surely they should be looking for better class if they wish to make strides this season?

@Marvyn Yeah mate, I think this year the division is too strong. I am kinda hoping that bates is trying to generate more money in other areas (the hotel) to ensure we can invest stronger next season when hopefully there wont be as many teams challenging for honours. With the division as strong and competitive as it is this year we would need to invest heavily in players if we would want to challenge for the title, and if we do invest and fail it would be wasted money, which is what bates hates, so I hope he is saving the money to see if the division gets weaker next season making the investment in players a little bit safer.

We need a couple of loan signings, we got Andy Keogh in but maybe 2 more to score and create. I like Clayton

@OzzyQPR Yeah we definitely need to sign new players. Snodgrass is good but only scored 7 goals last season and i think he is a tad overrated but still easily one of our top 3 best players, Gradel is our stand out player by far but our strength in depth is appalling, we have only put out 6 subs in our last few games, none of those benches had strikers on them. we just have no plan B and no alternative options. It's a frustrating time as a Leeds fan! we definitely need more reinvestment.

Although Leeds arent signing many players, do they need to? I feel that the team played very well together and they have alot of stand out players such as Gradel, Snodgrass and Becchio. I think they can easily get play off if they have the same spirit they had last season.

@ateeq Yeah he's been brilliant for us these past 2 seasons and we really need to make sure we keep him and Snodgrass both at Leeds and fit this year if we have any chance for promotion or the play offs. because we Don't look like we're signing anybody significant!

Is Max Gradel a good player?

We've signed no big players apart from lonegran, which seems like a decent signing, and Michael Brown, who has never been more than a fringe player and is now 34. Pretty gutted we've shown no real ambition this summer.
