A number of Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to demand their club to make some signings this summer. So far the fans have only been able to welcome Lewis Baker to the club on a season-long loan from Chelsea, other than that, it’s been a bleak window for The Whites.
| Another change to the diary, as our away game against Hull City has been brought forward 24 hours and will now be played on Tuesday 2nd October

It’s got to the point where the fans have been latching onto every social media post from their club to demand some action in the transfer market, to the dismay of Leeds United’s Twitter admin. The club tweeted that their game against Hull City in October had been moved from the Wednesday to the Tuesday with a link to the Leeds website, although they only received sarcastic responses from the fans who questioned whether they’d have enough players.
The fans have watched on with dismay as moves for Abel Hernandez, Matej Vydra, Kyle Bartley, Angus Gunn and David Stockdale all either fell through or failed to materialise. The fans will be hoping that Marcelo Bielsa has something up his sleeve to keep the all happy otherwise his stay could be short and not-so-sweet. The aspirations among the fans is that they can achieve promotion in the coming campaign, but that’s looking unlikely right now.
Here’s what the Whites have been saying on Twitter:
Stop tweeting unless its a signing

Becoming a joke now

Stop it now and just sign some players!

The Leeds fans are all in agreement that they need to get to work on some signings, although as things stand that’s looking very unlikely.
