A lot of Leeds fans on Twitter would have you believe that they’re about to go through another financial implosion with the doom and gloom coming out of the fan base at their lack of summer signings. A story in The Yorkshire Evening Post has helped them to see that lots of other Championship clubs are yet to make any real signings and that things aren’t that bad.

Most football fans have a way of making themselves feel like their club is in an awful position, none more so than the Whites who pack into Elland Road twice a week during the Championship season. However, this summer the club has secured possibly the best manager in their history in Marcelo Bielsa and wrapped up the loan-signing of Lewis Baker, the Chelsea star who’s been touted to go on and do big things at Stamford Bridge.
It’s true that the club has struggled to get a goalkeeper over the line but they’re now getting closer to completing another loan signing from Chelsea in the form of Jamal Blackman. All the fans need to do now is have a little bit more faith in their Argentine gaffer and let Bielsa and Andrea Radrizzani go about their business in the transfer market. The club will undoubtedly make some more moves for players, it’s just up to the fans to keep their patience.
Here are some of the Leeds fans comments on their situation:
Ha!!!! So hardly any one has signed anyone of any significance and yet ITKers woyl d have it that #LUFC are being left behind AND the club is a circus AND Bielsa is about to leave AND Radrizzani is a fraud etc etc. Anyone else bored with them all yet?

It’s starting to hit home with the Leeds fans that things aren’t that bad and it’s just a matter of time until the club make some progress with signings.
