You know that whole ‘definition of insanity’ thing?
Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results?
Well, I don’t think Leeds fans have quite got the message. Or perhaps it’s the Leeds board that are the insane ones for doing nothing and expecting things to change?
Either way, someone at Leeds is insane, and for legal reasons, I’m not going to put it on anyone in particular.
Having spent the past few weeks of pre-season demanding that the board sign a new centre-back, Leeds supporters doubled down on their sentiments after the club’s latest game saw them draw 1-1 away to Cagliari Calcio.
Ever since the departure of Pontus Jansson, the fans have been fixated with the board making a big signing in that department, and although many expect loan signing Ben White to fill the hole left by the big Swede, they think that not enough has been done this summer. It’s not just the defence that’s bothering them though, it seems as though there’s concern about what’s going on at the other end of the pitch too.
So pre season tells us we need an experienced centre back to replace Jansson, because we will leak goal after goal at the back.
And we need a 20 goal a season striker as it looks like we will try and walk the ball into the back of the net.

A centre back is all we need and then we are sorted, after seeing this match last night and how we played our attack and midfield is great just another CB and we will look even more strong ????

Looks like it’s going to be the same scenario as last year. 10 chances to 1 goal. Rubbish defending concede every time. If the fans can see it why doesn’t orta or radrizzani. We need a top goal scorer and an established centre half.

I suppose the real concern from these friendlies, is once again chance-to-goal conversion rate. I will not judge Bamford till the season is underway as I still believe in his abilities. Bogusz just keeps getting better and better!

Bamford as per usual failed to score Cooper was shocking but atleast Berardi played well and didn’t get sent off so some things are looking up hopefully we will win penalty’s all season

Dominated all the stats again. Seriously someone tell me where the goals are going to come from.

So everyone saying we need a cb fans seeing the pre season games are saying it so how come the owners can’t and another striker edmonson should play but bielsa does not put him in the team.

Dominating possession yet, not killing teams off. It’s not rocket science, in what is desperately needed, before next weekend. Over to you Mr Radrizzani, let’s see how serious you are, about automatic promotion ?

I wonder if this is going to carry on through the season if things don’t go right? Do you reckon Leeds fans will get tired of complaining eventually?
