Pedro Mendes

No, not that one..

Reading are looking to bring Sporting Lisbon's striker on a loan, with option to buy.

He has scored 15 goals in 20 games for their U-23s and has played 6 times for the first team, including 4 in the Europa League.

Know nothing about him but looks like he scored against PSV in the Europa League.

Know nothing about him. Wouldn't read into any U23 scoring record too much, but a young player on the fringes of a side like Sporting is probably quite a good player for a club like us.

Is the hair a major stumbling block for you? I find it hard to trust anyone with hair like that.

half your Leeds team seem to sport them, so thought you'd be all for it

I wouldn't say its a major stumbling block, but its not something I'd encourage either.

The imperious Luke Ayling has one, he has proven he can be trusted though.

Stranded does (Germany IIRC), I however took a bit of poetic license as I saw the goal on Twitter earlier.

Tbf to Carriço, he did go on and win the Europa League with Sevilla. harsh to judge him on 3 performances for us.

I also didn't think Illori was that bad for us. Certainly seen worse defenders.

Carrico was an odd one, against Liverpool in the 0-0 draw, he was superb but he was very rarely seen again after that, if not at all

Ilori was an abomination of a defender, simply wasn't a Championship player, suits the foreign leagues more IMO, not sure how he's done since he's gone though

He was a perfectly adequate championship defender. Who we made our money back on :|
