Leeds United have only signed one player since Marcelo Bielsa took charge in the form of Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker on loan, and lots of Whites fans on Twitter are visibly frustrated by the lack of transfer business.
The Yorkshire outfit would have been hoping to hit the ground running in the market following the huge appointment of the high-profile Argentine, but instead they have made no further progress on potential transfers as they look to ensure they are promotion contenders this season.
Strengthening between the sticks, in defence and up front look to be particular priorities with the new campaign just over a month away, and Victor Orta and Andrea Radrizzani will hope to get those deals over the line sooner rather than later.
Lots of Leeds supporters, who are expecting a big 2018/19 season from one of their 19-year-old stars, have been quick to have their say on the lack of action via social media, and while one said they “wonder why people get fed up”, another simply said “sign someone”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Sign some players instead of dicking round with YouTube

#lufc This is my opinion on signings. Don’t think we will get muted targets. When we do sign anyone ,they are going to be at least 2 weeks behind present squad . Late signings rarely have an impact 1st 2 months of the season . Can’t see us hitting the ground running.

I’m glad we had 3-4 signings in the bag a week before we announced Bielsa. N people wonder why people get fed up. Really need to show some intent. Just over 4 weeks to the league starting. Friendlies starting soon. Get your finger out #Lufc
