Leeds Fans Angry And Frustrated

Leeds United fans were left angry and frustrated as the transfer window slammed shut last night.Leeds had sold their star player Max Gradel and had not invested a single penny into any replacements.Leeds were thought to be in the market for a left-back, midfielder and striker to bolster their squad.
Leeds were thwarted in their pursuit of central midfield target Sammy Clingan, after making enquiries about the Coventry City captain, out of contract next summer, in the run-up to the deadline.Rumours abounded that cash-strapped City may be forced to let the Northern Ireland international leave.But the departure of central defender Ben Turner to Cardiff City and a sell-on clause following the big-money £8m transfer of Birmingham City and ex-Sky Blues centre-half Scott Dann to Blackburn Rovers is believed to have eased the pressure to sell, with boss Andy Thorn receiving reassurances that Clingan would stay.
And United’s hopes of a beat-the-deadline move for ex-loan full-back Eric Lichaj were scuppered after it was revealed the US international tore a thigh muscle playing for Aston Villa in their Carling Cup clash with Hereford United.However many fans will feel Leeds should have identified more targets and had a plan B for a club of this size it is simply not good enough.
