Supporters of Leeds United have been reacting to a transfer claim from Marcelo Bielsa on possible January incomings that was relayed by Phil Hay.
During the summer transfer window, the Whites sunk £96.1m on incomings and signed seven players permanently and one on loan (as per Transfermarkt).
So far this month, though, no money has been spent by the Yorkshire club and no players have come in.
Following a recent press conference by Bielsa, Hay relayed the claim that the Argentine manager is not expecting any incomings at Elland Road this month (per Phil Hay).
Supposedly, the Whites’ gaffer is ‘happy‘ with his squad as it is.
After the transfer claim was relayed to supporters on Twitter, lots of Leeds fans flocked to it to air their reactions.
So, what did these Leeds fans have to say about the transfer claim relayed by Phil Hay?
“No signings is a huge huge gamble and a huge mistake. Will cost us come the end of the season”
“right then we are going down”
During the summer transfer window, the Whites’ most expensive arrival was Rodrigo, with the Spanish attacker signing from Valencia for a whopping £27m.
Are Leeds in danger of relegation if they don't sign anyone this month?
No, it's not an issue
Yes, it is essential
“No signings we go down simple”
“Surely we need another forward and an option orher than Roberts who doesn’t score.”
So far this season, Bielsa’s Leeds have managed to win seven and draw two of their opening 18 matches in the top flight, while they have lost nine (per BBC).
The 23 points which they have accumulated over the outings have left the Whites in 12th, 11 points above the Premier League’s relegation zone.
“disappointing. too confident for an epl team that lost 0-3 from the lower division”
“This is mental”
“My word what on earth”
As can be seen in these responses from Leeds fans, many of them were frustrated that Bielsa had admitted that signings during the current transfer window were unlikely.
