With Leeds United experiencing one of their most effective transfer windows in a long time, Thomas Christiansen is going to be spoilt for choice when it comes to August.
The new head coach at Leeds has been given full support as Leeds confirmed their 7th and 8th signings of the summer yesterday.
The signings of both Ezgjan Alioski and Samuel Saiz are real eye openers. Not only for the fact the club has reportedly paid over £5million for the pair, but the fact they are both respected as high quality players prior to joining for Leeds.
There's no doubt Leeds needed to strengthen this summer in all areas. Our attacking force while potent because of Chris Wood's stellar season, didn't have the goals between them to support the Kiwi captain.
Leeds lost out on the playoffs because they didn't have the type of players who can go and contribute to our goals tally, now that's not an issue.
Victor Orta and co have been likes kids in a candy shop while the club have already outlawed over £11million on transfers so far this summer, with another 6/7 weeks before the window slams shut.
The job now is for Christiansen to pay attention while Leeds train in Austria and try and find a settled XI in the three friendlies that will be played while abroad.
One thing that Garry Monk couldn't do is find the players in his squad to fill his formation and consistently pick them, a major issue. While Monk had less quality at his disposal that TC now has was irrelevant. If anything, TC may now struggler more due to the squads size inflating.
Leeds now have five wingers; Sacko, Dallas Alioski and then if you are to count Roofe and Doukara as this position. Although, I highly believe Doukara could be a casualty of Leeds' current spending spree. This means they not only have players to start but impact players from the bench, suddenly a lack of Plan B doesn't seem an issue.
We also have an astounding amount of central midfielders with the likes of Bridcutt, Vieira, O'Kane, Klich, Phillips, Hernandez and others now fighting to start for Leeds this season, all offering different options and styles.
Leeds have also brought in Caleb Ekuban to finally give some support to Chris Wood along with the rejuvenated Marcus Antonsson, giving Leeds a fresh pair of legs when their hitman isn't fit.
The last thing we need is defence and that issue is said to be sorted within the coming days with Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Wolves skipper Danny Batth heavily linked with moves to Elland Road.
Leeds are looking stronger and actually have a squad that isn't fully comprised of youngsters just for the sake of numbers. We're prepared, we'll have had a full preseason and we are going up.
