Shall we just put this down as an inevitability right away?
Because we all know what’s going to happen.
The January transfer window is well underway now, and although Leeds are yet to officially confirm any incomings, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t playing a big part in the proceedings. A report from Football Insider has claimed that Queens Park Rangers are close to finalising a loan move for Tottenham Hotspur winger Jack Clarke.
The report later goes on to state that QPR could have the deal wrapped up in time for their game on Saturday, which comes against… Leeds United. And it’s that news that has really got the Leeds United fans talking, because there are large swathes of them that believe it’s written in the stars that he is going to come back and haunt them.
Oh goody goody gum drops !

This could be new levels of Leeds United self-harm

Let’s hope he doesn’t come back and bite us on the bum on Saturday then , as we really need to get back to winning ways.
Where is our loan players or signings then?

Lol it’s written in the stars meanwhile will Leeds sign anyone before this game besides a goalie that isn’t for first team yawn

We just love to shoot ourselves in the foot,why oh why did Bielsa not use him?

You have got to be kidding me! Isn’t this just classic Leeds? He is going to score against us. Let me go check the odds for that.

I think we all know how this story ends.

Should We Replace Clarke Or Not?
Whilst these fans are worrying about the prospect, I wonder what Marcelo Bielsa is thinking about the whole thing, knowing that if Clarke does score, there could be some serious questions coming his way about how he handled that loan spell.
