Homecoming for Keogh! Meanwhile, fans must improve

Leeds have signed Andy Keogh on loan until January. The Wolves marksman started his professional career at Elland Road as a product of the youth academy. Keogh joins up with his new team-mates in a current state of 'madness'. With the Whites without a point from the opening two league games and the fans divided over opinions of Ken Bates ownership it's fair to say the club is in disarray.

Keogh only made the one solitary appearance for Leeds during his first spell at the club and he is expected to go straight into the squad for the Tuesday night clash with Hull. This signing is to aid the injury void left by Davide Somma, Luciano Becchio and Billy Paynter who all find themselves on the treatment table.

This signing worries me a little, we were linked with a 'big name' striker from the Premier League last week and I feel this may have been a 'panic' signing from Grayson. It is public knowledge that we missed out on a forward last week and there has been a demand for squad improvement. Have we settled for Keogh? His scoring record isn't the best but hopefully he can find a new lease of life at Elland Road to pull us out of the growing pit we find ourselves in.

I will note the need for the fans to get behind the team on Tuesday instead of falling into a mob mentality against owner Ken Bates. He is doing the best for our club and at this present time it's the majority of fans that are the ones letting the club down. We've been unlucky in the market and things haven't gone our way but us as fans have one job, to support the team, let's stick to our job, set the example and hope the players and management follow suit!
