My patience is beginning to fray at the edges with how this window is being handled by the regime . Our season effectively finished on 17/ 7 when Hudders defeated Brom . Our targets should all have been in place, negotiated, lined up and signed by now getting Bielsa fit . I understand the short turnaround and the the virus affected market making things tougher . But there are no excuses . Everything I see and read tells me that the regime has learnt very little from past failings in previous windows . Over negotiating, trying to be too damned clever and naive about how realistic certain targets are . DJ and Che Adams revisited . I don't care that few other teams have strengthened so far . I only care about Leeds Utd . Most of those other teams already have deep premier league squads . As it stands we start our first season back in the prem with one recognised striker and one recognised centre back . Now I know MB works miracles but that's ridiculous by any standards .

Think the chase for White has been a distraction, time we got on a strengthened the team for the challenge ahead. We have money in the transfer pot supposedly? . Yes we had a good team spirit and did well to win the championship, but we need to strengthen or we will be back down like Huddersfield. We will lose heavily will this team at Liverpool, hate saying it but our squad isn't strong enough yet! Cut the BS, sign some quality players.

I am surprised that you are surprised!
Love it or hate it this is the way Leeds United do things. Yes I know it beggars belief and it defies logical thinking but if history has taught us anything - Leeds are Last Minute. com. I too am frustrated but the one thing in their favour is that every week a new name is released who is well worth looking at. I am also of the opinion that we have spent far too long on the distraction of Ben White. Enough is enough, accept defeat and move on. I love the man but STOP throwing money at Brighton. Use it constructively elsewhere.

Is it really 'the Leeds United way' though or the 'Victor Orta / Andrea Rasz / Angus Kinnear Way '? THE LATTER .

. seem to recall that Leeds United made their signings quickly abd efficiently under previous Leeds United ownerships of Leslie Silver, Manny Cussins, Peter Ridsdale etc

The ridiculosnous of the DJ. and CA ( JKA) . transfer fiasco is being repeated by the BW transfer fiasco.

Move on abd sign some available players.

Offer them good salaries so that actually do. sign Radz. If and when. QSI take over you. will not see this bs ineptitude in signing. quality players.

Much as I love him
I also don't think it has helped to make signings that Bielsa has/ had still not signed his contract also.

Ridsdale as a good example? It’s quick to sign if you give ridiculous prices and salaries!

Our problem is the window is much longer this year . Clubs
with deeper squads than ours can afford to take their time and wait for selling clubs to get more realistic on their valuations especially given the virus . Brentford for example with no fans at games until at least October are going to have to sell two or three players to comply with FFP rules and will have to come down from their combined £55m for Watkins and Benrahma . But can we afford to wait especially given how long it takes players to get Bielsa ready?!

Brockley completely wrong there were no ' ridiculous prices ' under tbe Ridsdale era maybe slightly too much for certain players

But most of the transfer fees paid under theRidsdale era were very reasonable £6 million for Viduka, £5 million for Bridges £4.5 million for Batty even £18 million for Ferdinand was good business with a £14 million profit . only Seth Johnson and his wages was a complete waste of money

. Ridsdale signed TOO MANY players that was the issue.

We are trying. That’s better than nothing. Negotiations takes time. First big, unexpected signing, next week!
