It was the perfect start to the perfect evening for Leeds United. Ahead of last night’s friendly with Tavistock, Leeds United fans were eagerly anticipating the much talked about possibly of transfer news before and after the game.
Neil Warnock’s white army ran out 6-0 winners against the minnows of Tavistock, with the likes of Robert Snodgrass, Adam Drury and Luciano Becchio all featuring.
After it was professed that Neil Warnock wanted eight more faces before the start of the season, nobody would have expected that four signings would be announced yesterday evening, with the arrival of Andy Gray and Jamie Ashdown completed and Luke Varney and Rodolph Austin simply waiting on the formalities of their own circumstances before they are officially shown off to the world’s media.
Andy Gray and Jamie Ashdown by no means set the heart alight, but they provide much needed depth to a squad hampered with unwanted faces.
Luke Varney is a player that can impress well but has been blighted with injury and an unhappy spell with crisis club Portsmouth, so Leeds United is his prime opportunity to show his worth.
Now this next guy, needs little introduction to Leeds United fans and YouTube for that matter. Fans have spent weeks keeping tabs on Rodolph Austin, with many having a cheeky peek on live streams of Norwegian Football, where Rodolph Austin has shown off his tenacious nature and his ability to score goals and assist.
With the club now paying for the services of new players, fans are now more than ever convinced that the new owners cannot be far off their drawn out attempt to outwit Ken Bates off his self proclaimed throne.
With an official approach for Lee Peltier also publicised, Neil Warnock is showing fans just how seriously he takes Leeds United and how much he wants to bring back the zest and spirit that Elland Road has lacked under the courtship of Santa Clause’s evil twin.
