Leeds United should make these three signings (1)

Published 2 Comments

The main picture of this article must be somewhat haunting for Leeds United fans - that was their team 11-years-ago as they lined-up with the likes of Alan Smith, Mark Viduka and James Miler for a crucial Premier League fixture away at Bolton Wanderers.

90 minutes after that picture was taken, the Whites were as good as consigned to the Football League after blowing a 1-0 lead to lose 4-1. They have never been back since...

The wait for a return to the top tier goes on and on, it seems like the Yorkshire club stagnated in the Championship and look likely more likely to drop than elevate at this point.

It doesn't always work-out for some clubs, but Leeds really do need to invest in their playing staff - in the right areas too. Their team at the moment, bar a few talented individuals, look disjointed and without a clear sense of direction.

They have something to build around though; those talented individuals I mentioned, the ones like Alex Mowatt, Lewis Cook and Sam Byram, can all hold dreams of playing Premier League football for their boyhood clubs, but they need the right players around them. They don't need teammates who refuse to play.

The fact is that Leeds United are a great club but are run in farcical circumstances. 

Will they get the funds? 

As a result, it is unclear as to how much current owner Massimo Cellino can/will put into the club this summer for player transfers - it's very difficult to mark out a good signing, but I have attempted to do so when you merely take into account the revenue that the club must make every week from high attendances and sponsorship. 

One player across defence, midfield and up-front would be enough to turn Leeds into challengers once more.

Take a look at my suggestions and let me know what you think...
