The transfer of Lee Peltier from Leicester to Leeds for the now usual 'undisclosed fee' brought in the tenth signing Colin has signed and in total over 2 million pounds in fees for the players brought in.
The main problem in the two summers before this one is that not much left Uncle Ken's wallet but quite a few quid went into it. Has the pressure of failing to back a manager previously brought a change of heart or is the money coming from a source outside the club. Either way the quantity of players coming in has raised a few eyebrows.
It has to still be seen if Colin gets the striker he says he needs to put a little pressure on Becchio and McCormack and maybe another winger might bolster a small squad which is struggling to get to 20 without the youngsters who have had a few games pre- season.
I applaud the manager for his efforts so far this summer and am looking forward to the start of the serious games, starting with Shrewsbury next Saturday in the newly named Capital Cup.
