Yesterday at Elland Road the legends looked at each other in surprise, Billy looked at Don and both were in agreement that somebody had walked in who would split the fans on his appearance. I've never been one to question a signing but El Hadji Diouf will certainly be talked about around the message boards of our club.
Diouf certainly comes with a troubled past and even the manager has questioned his behaviour in the past but did we really need to boo him when he crossed the white line yesterday? We have had many players from a club in Manchester who although we weren't sure about we still gave them our support.
The players at Leeds now, apart from a few are new to the club and we need to show ALL that we support them in what will be a long hard season and I cannot see that turning on a player so soon will have a positive reaction in the dressing room.
We have given the boss our full support in his dealings thus far in the transfer market so let's get behind all who wear the white shirt and give them the support they need. I cannot see that negatively sounding one player will help the others settle into our great club.
All I ask is give them ALL a chance to prove their worth in our teams colours.
