bielsa refused to sign anyone. turned money down. turned signings down.
that comes from someone on the first team coaching staff.

however I agree that we need a striker and left back and given weve spent next to nothing I cant see why we havent


Oh i've no doubt he did, but, on the other hand, did they provide him with good players as options to sign or more like Firpo and JKA ? either way suppose we'll never truly know but the owners for me are showing consistent signs of questionable transfer strategy here...

perhaps players are lined up?
let's give it till the end of the window. for me a left back is more vital than a striker


Possibly so Tad, but for me they missed a trick (Rasz admitted so) in not signing CDK early while AC were sleeping. Also, they should have been looking at others similar players well before now.. i think lack of options up front cost us the win on Saturday, we lost control, we stopped pressing from the front, Struyik out of position several times (dread to think what Reece James and Cucarella will do to us Saturday). Valuable points dropped.

Not a bad start by any means don't get me wrong, but it serves as a warning sign of what's to come if they don't act.

I thought it was not subbing players earlier in the heat.
however we look yo have good shape, tactically look far better than last year, and I am encouraged by the 2 games.
Chelsea will be a big test though

I think it was a mixture of the two.
Subbing players far too late when anyone could see how difficult it was for some players to keep up with the pace.
Southampton got it right admittedly as they were chasing the game and had nothing to lose, we didn`t.
And our lack of strike power on the bench didn`t help either.
I have no idea why our current and previous managers think James is the answer up front.

bielsa was meant to be the font of all knowledge. massive staff who watched virtually every league.
marsch gave the board a list of targets and they got them. bielsa said in press conferences in january the squad was fine, he saw james as a future leeds manager striker and he wouldnt be signing anyone.
as for firpo he was one bielsa wanted. and hot.
I fail to see what he or marsch see in him myself

Bielsa chased James for almost 2 years paying over the odds for a player who did nothing at MU in the Premiership.
His level is Championship probably like Firpo although I think even in the Championship Firpo would struggle.
