That's all Folks!
The first Transfer Window of the 2016/17 season closed on Wednesday the 31st August and with no emergency loan window this season, what you have is who you play.
There are still out of contract players available to sign but the next window opens in January 2017.
An incredible amount of money was spent by Premier League clubs this window. Over one 1billion pounds was spent on new recruits and there's also been a few surprises on Deadline Day; David Luis returning to Chelsea for £30million and Sissoko rejecting a move to Everton and then ending up at Spurs for a bloated £30million as well.
The biggest surprise of the day was Jack Wilshere, he turned down Milan for the delights of AFC Bournemouth. The team that nearly went bust a decade ago have spent a tremendous amount of money and broke their transfer record buying Jordan Ibe for £15million from Liverpool, not long after completing the deal that took Lewis Cook from us.
Leeds compared with others spent within a budget, the eleven players brought in wont have seriously 'dented' the money that Cellino received from the transfers of Sam and Lewis and whatever happened to the McContract money is anybody's guess.
Yes we buy players but we do so on the cheap and how he can expect us to challenge for the top six with what we have is beyond me. The refund he promised for not reaching the playoffs looks a certainty.
I really wanted a statement of intent, not stupidity. The lack of options, especially in the forward area of the team is worrying. An injury to Wood or Antonsson leaves us with Doukara and the kids in the under 23 squad as our options. We could play Roofe up top, as he played there last season with great success at his last club but Monk see's him as a wide player and recently only a option from the subs bench.
We've a multitude of midfielders and it will be interesting to see who he picks for the next game. The latest recruit in this area is Eunan O'Kane, the player Lewis Cook replaced in the Bournemouth squad. He's a Republic of Ireland full international and has played four times for his country. He signed for an 'undisclosed fee' and is contracted for two years.
Eddie Gray, ex-Leeds legend always used to say it's more about the quality of your signings not just the numbers that make a team stronger and more importantly better. He's right and Cellino's so, so wrong.
I hope that the lack of ambition shown in this window doesn't come back and bite the team in the a*** because if it does there is only one person to blame.
