He's playing in the front 3 in a team that has been scoring scoring goals for fun and he is still yet to register a goal or even an assist this season. The only reason people think that he is doing well is because he has been so bad that expectations for him couldn't be lower.

Did he not assist Dolan's goal against Derby?

He has played a crucial role in many of our goals this season and has played well.It is nonsense to suggest otherwise.Not blinded at all

I think the end product needs to come to get that monkey off his back, just chipping in now and then even 

Yeah, I can see that. I think he's had to change the way he approached the game before COVID so hopefully that side will come as time passes. He has been a completely different animal post-lockdown. A goal would do him the world of good because we did buy him as a striker but playing where he is now, we don't need 15-20 out of him. 5-10 would be nice!

Bolasie would be incredible! Think he wants to join up with warnock though.

Pete O'Rourke reckons us and Millwall trying to challenge Middlesbrough for Yannick Bolasie but he prefers Middlesbrough 

I actually wrote something about Bolasie a few weeks ago, but deleted it before posting as it sounded far too fetched.

So whilst I believe it to be genuine, I believe this is our token deadline day "we bid (X-75%) and other team bid (X)" deal... a la Freeman, Reed etc.

My Leeds supporting mate reckons we have just signed the best left back in the Championship. High praise indeed, but then he does support Leeds so hard to trust his judgement!

Even though I've known it's been coming for the past few days, it feels great that it's official now. Hats off to Tony and his team for an incredible transfer window.

Take a look at the Leeds Twitter, to say they are complimentary of him is an understatement.

Don't really know much about him but fair play to Mowbray it sounds like we've got ourselves a corker.

Some good business being done across the board today. Knockaert to Forest, Flint/Marriott to Sheff Wed, Wilson to Cardiff. Silly having two deadlines but doesn't half make it interesting!

Wolves fans really rated him when he got promoted with them, there was a lot of restless voices when they replaced him with Jonny and sold him to Leeds (Look how that turned out, Nuno knows what he's doing!) FYI - 5 goals and 14!! assists from left back when Wolves won the league.

Has been a bit injury prone recently but it's without a doubt a big upgrade, and I thought out of our budget. Well done all involved, the squad is really shaping up here. A win tomorrow and this place will be bouncing.

Don't see how Douglas gets in ahead of the "exceptional" Bell tbh 😜

What a signing. Nice one Tony!

Maybe at his age he's not at his peak anymore, but he is basically as good as we could hope for at LB in the Championship. Better than Cunningham IMO. 

I think our team looks so good right now, and would be even better if we were to bring in Pears and Trybull as well. My only worry is the injury-proneness of a lot of our players and the impact that could have on our season. Other than that, we are promotion contenders and I am gearing up for an exciting season!

For me Douglas is a win win. Either he pushes Bell to improve or he takes his spot and is a big improvement.

All round I'm happy with this window as it stands, Kaminski looks decent, Ayala is a much needed presence, Douglas upgrades LB significantly and Dolan is the cherry on top
