Today saw many Leeds fans jaws hit the ground quicker than Ashley Young after a tap on the shoulder.
Although Leeds have been heavily linked with a sudden galvanise of our squad after a handful of poor performances that I was very unwilling to watch. It seems that MacDaddy McDermott has stuck his foot in the ground and told the board that unless they want a back lash of boos that hit the squad after a dismal performance not just against Rochdale, we needed signings.
Today saw Leeds United, the team that did not seem to grasp the idea of wingers, sign not only one but potentially two! Cameron Stewart which I see as a very good piece of business on an emergency 93 day loan (as he has played for two teams already this season) with him eventually signing in summer when his contract runs out, on a 3 year deal. A player known in the Championship for his pace and his ability to score a screamer or three and at 22 year old can only mean good business.
Following the signing of Stewart, a very short interview with Palace boss Tony Pulis gave is the information we'd hoped for. Jimmy Kebe could well be on his way to LS11. A very strong Championship winger with bags of pace, height and a strong technical head on him. With a view to a permanent I for one will not complain with Brian bringing in a few of his old Reading favourites *cough* Le Fondre *cough*.
With these two signings in one day can only mean we mean business this window. I would still not complain with a back up keeper and a striker that could take the goal scoring pressure off Rossco. Kevin Phillips has just been released and has proven pedigree getting clubs up.
My new team sheet would include:
Byram. Zaliukas. Pearce. Pugh
Kebe. Murphy. Stewart
