“Opinions are like a***holes son, every person has one and they all think theirs smells the best.”

I remember a teacher saying that when I was at middle school to a cocky lad answering a question…cue stunned silence.

The ‘Who’s Next on the Treadmill’ rumours abound at Leeds United; the latest name put forward seems to be one grandly-named Brian Guillermo Montenegro Benitez – the club shop would make a killing putting his name on a shirt back. Benitez is a 21-year-old Paraguayan striker playing for Nacional Asuncion in Paraguay. In the past 4 seasons of football he has accrued 6785 minutes of football and scored 22 goals – an average of 1 goal per 308 minutes (or around 1 goal per 3.5 games). He was actually on West Ham United’s books for the 2011/12 Championship season but didn’t appear in the match day squad for the majority of the season, save for being on the bench for one game against Barnsley ; his only ‘game time’ coming in an F.A. Cup 3rd round game against Sheffield Wednesday when he replaced Joey O’Brien in a 1-0 loss for West Ham.

His most productive year was in 2013 whilst playing for Rubio Nu and Libertad in Paraguay’s ‘Division Profesional‘ where he made 31 appearances, scoring a combined total of 11 goals for both teams at an average strike rate of 1 goal per 174 minutes.

‘Rumour’ or ‘shred of truth’? Is the wonderfully named Brian Guillermo Montenegro Benitez what is potentially needed at Elland Road?

I refer you back to what my middle school teacher said to a stunned bunch of 12 year olds.
