Scraping the coppers together?

It seems that the biggest concern of the Leeds United faithful this summer is whether or not Simon Grayson has any money to spend. So far, we’ve brought in three new players, all of whom have joined on a free transfer.

It’s been said and repeated numerous times across the various Leeds United sites and forums, but free doesn’t necessarily mean the incoming players will be of a poor quality. Patrick Kisnorbo for example came, he saw and he conquered, finishing last season as the Player of the Year.

Furthermore, the three signings Leeds have made so far seem to have gone down well with the fans. Kasper Schmeichel almost had a  clean sweep of happy Leeds fans, with 96% saying they were happy with his signing in our poll (the other four percent were indifferent). Billy Paynter and Paul Connolly also received a majority verdict of happiness with 73% and 67% of fans respectively, saying they were happy with the signings.

However, even with a fanbase happy at the signings so far, we still have grumbles of discontent. Few feel Grayson will be able to find an adequate replacement for Jermaine Beckford unless Kenneth digs deep. Gary Hooper remains a firm favourite amongst the fans, but with a price tag on his head which is reported to be around £2.5m, the fans are questioning our chances.

It’s with all the above in mind that I’ve opened the new TSS poll to see whether the fans of Leeds United believe Larry has any money to spend this summer.

Do you think Leeds will make the play-offs this season?
