Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to voice their concerns after a Phil Hay update left supporters reeling.
The journalist hinted that Leeds’ transfer business could be done, saying that it wouldn’t surprise him if they didn’t add a centre-back, whilst also saying they’d be unlikely to sign a striker unless Kemar Roofe departs.
wouldn’t surprise me if Bielsa sticks with what he’s got at CB. He’s a big fan of White

Roofe has been linked with a move to both Brighton and Crystal Palace but their lack of further transfer activity has got fans worried.
The Elland Road faithful seem to be frustrated at their squad depth, bemoaning the fact that they could suffer from injury problems again next season.
Last term, Roofe and Patrick Bamford both suffered spells out which clearly had a negative impact on their forward line.
One fan said they were concerned that Liam Cooper could suffer a long-term injury whilst one commented that a lack of depth and cover may prevent them from securing a top-two finish.
A further individual mentioned that it would be a struggle if they suffered from similar setbacks next term, claiming they were expecting the worst.
Here’s the best of the reaction.
I think everybody needs to stop a minute and think what would happen if Cooper got a season ending injury. I mean seriously, knowing our luck, is it even unlikely?

Agree I think injuries ultimately cost us last season & could do again unless Marcelo thinks there are U23s ready to step up. #lufc

I imagine this is Bielsa’s doing rather than Radz. He likes a small squad but this is far too risky surely

I get more and more upset by the day

Its gunna be last season all over again.. hopefully a second year of Bielsa means we dont get as many out with torn muscles and strains like last season.

11 injuries so far most minor. But we are way to short on needed quality

It’s also the training regime that causes the injuries, very few of them were picked up in games last year, they were mainly in training which suggests the same will happen this year

We are too light on the ground, and it will cost us a top-two finish. We do not want the same place as last season the playoff root.

Cooper and Berardi ?
Bamford, hoping for better but expecting the worse.
He likes a small squad but if we get the same injuries as last season, it’s going to be a struggle.
