 The Squad
Casper Ankergren - Best goalkeeper in squad, although that really doesn't say much. Does the job in League One just, but once You get promoted, You will need to look for a much better one.
Shane Higgs - If there's a chance, you should look for better back-up keeper as higgs is not of a high enough standard even for this league.
Alan Martin - He could be one for the future, although the chances are slim, I would say look to offload as soon as possible.
Damien Ross - Never going to make it in this league get rid of him as soon as you can.
Alan Sheehan(LB) - Good left back. Does well in League One.
Ben Parker(LB) - Decent back-up for Sheehan.
Rui Marques(CB) - 4th best centre half in team.
Matt Heath(CB) - Great back-up and could even make the first team, if either Michalik or Huntington are sold.
Lubomir Michalik(CB) - One of the best players in team, wins most headers.
Paul Huntington(CB) - Great partner for Michalik.
Frazer Richardson(RB) - Does the job well, if there is no better player to take.
Darren Kenton(RB) - Under average player in Leeds squad.
Alan Thompson(LM) -
Peter Sweeney(LM) - Slow, but has great technical stats.
Bradley Johnson(LM) - Good left winger, pacey and technical.
Jonathan Douglas(CM) - Good back-up for first team.
David Prutton(CM) - He has good great defensive stats, should be retrained as defensive midfielder, if needed.
Ian Westlake(CM) - Another midfielder, who should be back-up.
Jonathan Howson(CM) - This guy is one for future I'd say.
Andy Hughes(CM) - I recommend to sell him.
Neil Kilkenny(CM) - Decent midfielder, could make the first team.
Sebastien Carole(RM) - Not good enough for Leeds.
Curtis Weston(RM) -
Sebastian Sorsa(RM) -
Jermaine Beckford - Quick, pacey striker who can easily score 20 goals or more a season.
Tresor Kandol - A good striker when partnered with Beckford.
Tore-Andre Flo - The oldest player in the squad.A good impact player coming of the bench.Aim ball to his head as he has good heading stats.
Leon Constantine - Not up to standard.Backup at best.
Anthony Elding - Despite his stats, he cam and does score plenty when given a chance.Don't overlook this.
 Hot Prospects
 Recommended Signings
James Henry-AML-Reading-Loan - The 18 year old can do a very good job on the wing, helping with plenty of assists.
Kieron Westwood-GK-Carisle-£450k - Gives Ankergren good competition for the Goalkeeping place.Good player for the future.
Rok Kronaveter - He is only in game with Large DB, but You could get him for less than £200k and he is great from League One to Premier League. A must buy.
Stephan Appiah - With latest update, he is a free agent. Does great job as CM.
 Recommended Formations
Right Back Centre Back Centre Back Left Back
Centre Mid Centre Mid Centre Mid
Attacking Mid Attacking Mid
In my opinion this is the best formation to use with Leeds as it allows them to use a lot of width as well as providing enough people further up the pitch to allow the striker a lot of chances. As there are three central midfielders it will mean the back four will be a lot better backed up than with the simple four-four-two.
All in all I would say that Leeds United can be a very fun game, that would suit someone just getting to grips with the game as first season is quite easy to win the title and that is what is expected.
