Leeds fans have been in meltdown over the last few weeks. Their club has made just two signings this summer, with Lewis Baker and Jamal Blackman both coming in on loan from Chelsea. A piece in The Yorkshire Evening Post claims that patience may pay off the club, although the fans aren’t buying it and are keen for their owner to show some ambition.

Leeds United is a club that is often hard for even the most die-hard of supporters to get behind. The club won promotion from League One back in 2010 and since then they’ve made little progress, becoming a mid-table Championship side. They’ve now appointed Marcelo Bielsa and the fans have finally got faith that maybe Andrea Radrizzani can come good for the club and push the Whites towards Premier League promotion.
Unfortunately, though, this transfer window came about and the belief has been sucked right out of the fans. The club has made two loan signings and let a whole host of players leave in the other direction. Bielsa did claim when he came into the club that he wanted to bring in around five players and let around 15 leave and whilst they’re close to this, the fans really aren’t sure how things will turn out with such a thin squad.
You can see what the Leeds fans on Twitter have been calling for here:
Any chance of Kinnear leaving soon? He looks like he should be on tv selling UPVC windows

It won’t pay off we will end up with 2 or 3 loan players who have no loyalty to the club @andrearadri

Next 2 weeks will be massive & show true ambition of Andrea. Only consolation is that few other clubs have done any business #lufc

Loads of areas need reinforcing at Leeds, but i think we desperately need wingers with pace and trickery. Pointless having a top class striker if you don't have the players who can provide him with the service.

Just from the tweets above, you can see the frustration among the fans as they continue to demand some new signings.
