Ask anyone around Leeds United, and they will tell you that the club is in a tough place. The loss of club legend Marcelo Bielsa was tough, and the bedding in period for American coach Jesse Marsch has been troubling to say the least. However, the season has started decently, with four points from two games – games that, last year, might have produced zero points. A vulnerability still exists in the team, and many fans put that down to the lack of experience in some key areas – especially goalkeeper.

Go back a few short years, and the idea of Leeds United signing a Portuguese international began and ended with Helder Costa. The cornrowed winger was a flop at Elland Road, and was quickly moved on to La Liga to start again. This summer, though, Leeds are set for a third year in the Premier League – and with several squad holes still to fill in their team. This means that player who were once out of reach are now interested in coming to the club – and this includes the arrival of Matheus Nunes.

As a rather young squad, one of the major requests by fans this summer was experience. Last year was a chastening one, mainly due to the youth of the squad getting wrapped up in the negativity engulfing the club. The problem for Leeds, then, is that many of their signings are of the same mould. Young and exciting with room to develop, yes; but also very little experience of the Premier League. Another name that could soon be added to this list would be Josh Tymon.

When chasing a player, the one thing that fans want to hear is that the player is desperate to arrive at the club. Therefore, the news that RB Salzburg midfielder Mohamed Camara is being excused from training is very good news for Leeds United. While most fans are not happy at all to see local hero Kalvin Phillips depart for Manchester, the arrival of a energetic and technically outstanding midfielder in Camara would help to soften the blow.

Few players of the modern era of Leeds United have gotten the club quite like Kalvin Phillips. A local lad who grew up supporting the club, Phillips has developed from a rangy box to box midfielder to a world class orchestrator. He played a massive role in setting the tone and tempo for the Marcelo Bielsa era. His playmaking was a key part of making sure Leeds could dominate games. His physicality and height also made sure he could throw it around a bit – a classic Leeds midfielder of yesteryear. However, it would be fair to say that things have been less impressive since Jesse Marsch took over.

While no fans wants to see their best players move on, from the moment Raphinha took to the Elland Road pitch this always felt like a temporary agreement. The Brazilian has been utterly sensational for the club, and his arrival from Rennes was immediately viewed as a big coup. The playmaking style and the right left foot shooting of Raphinha has given Leeds fans something to enjoy even during the tough times of last season and this. However, it looks like the agreement between player and club ends this summer.

While he might have nothing to do with Leeds United, Ian Wright has always been happy to pass comment. The former Arsenal and Crystal Palace man was a hero as a player for the clubs he played for. As a pundit, he has been noted for his bubbly and effervescent personality. However, Wright also is regarded as someone with good insight into the game. While his emotional style of punditry can be a little grating to some, he is an easy person to listen to.

Ask any Leeds fan how they feel right now, and the likely response will be negative. This is a city that is, in the words of Daniel Taylor in The Athletic, living on its nerves. Everyone worries that the two-year return to the Premier League is set to end. The sacking of Marcelo Bielsa and the hiring of Jesse Marsch has done little to appease the support. If anything, anger is more palpable than ever before.

It is not often that a coach makes any kind of meaningful commitment to a club amid relegation worries. For one, if you are in a relegation fight most fans probably want a new coach in the first place. Also, most top-flight coaches aren’t really keen on going down a division. In the case of Jesse Marsch, though, the American seems keen to stick around at Leeds United regardless of what happens. With the club seemingly committed to him regardless, the former RB Leipzig coach has been speaking about his plans.
