This time, COS reader Jack isn’t sure what Dennis Wise is up to.

Leeds are unbeaten in eight league games. Star men Tresor Kandol and Jermaine Beckford are suspended for the next two fixtures . With Tore Andre Flo injured , Leeds only have young striker Tomi Ameobi brother to Shola Ameobi of Newcastle United in the squad who is fit . So Dennis Wise looks to the loan market for cover ,  He announces that Leeds have captured Wayne Andrews and Mark De Vries both on one month loan deals . So Leeds now have cover for the missing Kandol and Beckford but probably now no place for young Tomi Ameobi. So young players like Ameobi have to wait even longer to get their chance . This decision by Wise seems somewhat harsh and not exactly in the interests of the club. These players are at the club for a month, they will most probably only end up playing a game or two, they themsleves most likely know that . These players are not going to be fully committed to the club in their one month spell .

So why doesnt Dennis Wise use Ameobi, he would be eager and wanting to take his chance . Surely that is better than a 29 year old striker who is out of favour at Coventry?
