    The guy looks over the moon to sign - perhaps he watched the game on Monday

    The next Jonathan Woodgate or the next Monty Gimpel? Either way agree with the Rev we need the Viduka and the Radebe of today please!

    And you call me a cracked record, look in the mirror sometime.

    Don't give a f00k about Eastleighs signings, I DO about Leeds ( so do you if your post on the Notts game thread are genuine, you think!)

    He's not, and he isn't. He'll go either to Development of Leonora, and we will never hear of see him again, (like most of Ortas genius signings!)

    Past performance Clive. How many of the newcomers introduced since Orta arrived have actually delivered? We have Sais, Alisoki (?) and errr..............

    Look at Halmes record, he's a 19-year old who has only ever played in Finland, went to Helsinki from an even lower level club, is this supposed to be the way we strengthen our 1st team, or yet more speculation (using our money) by Orta, on the off chance that sooner or later he will get lucky?

    If the club is investing for the future fine, but don't come out with stupidity regarding playoffs (or sheer lunacy regarding automatic promotion), if thats the strategy. Punts on guys like Halme won't get us promoted, not this season, if ever.

    Please tell me how my criticisms and predictions for our newcomers have been any less accurate than those deliberations by our DoF and owner that have resulted in millions being spent on duds??

    I may have been wrong on a couple, right on a few more, better performance than Orta and I do it for free!

    Look at Saiz record, came from the Spanish second division, currently our best attacking player, not la liga, not the bundesliga, not the premier league, not serie A, but a foreign second division weaker than our own English second division that we currently play in, plus his in his prime age wise so probably won't get much better than his current ability

    Just saying ya know

    OK WTF, with you knowing all you need to know about what goes into getting a player, the finances, the scouting, the paperwork, the contacts etc, who would you be signing for Leeds right now

    Yes Clive, I agree with you, now please tell me of any other signing brought in since Ortas arrival, that has contributed one tenth of what we have seen from Saiz (and I include Alioski in that (who I rate), in that question despite his "variable" performances)?

    FFS if we keep signing nobodies on nothing values, we are bound to end up with the occasional diamond in the rough, and you're suggesting that's a sound strategy for building a squad that can compete for, and deliver, at least the possibility of consistent playoff place?

    Never said I had all the answers, and I don't have the network of our esteemed DoF, I just look at what we have achieved with the chancers and the punts, and conclude that the strategy isn't working. Like many others, I believe that a larger budget, for a smaller number of more experienced (as in UK leagues) and therefore more expensive players would be more likely to deliver long-term and consistent results, whilst allowing the younger players to be "protected" while they develop.

    If that makes me a xenophobe in some peoples eyes, so be it, but at least I don't have one eye on my bank balance when I make my comments, which is more than can be said about Ortas decisions on transfers in.
