Much of the frustration among Leeds fans has been with the lack of activity in the transfer market in regards to signing a new striker. But will a combination of Lasogga and Roofe be good enough?
Both Roofe and Lasogga have been pretty decent at times, and at other times completely anonymous. Against Millwall, especially during the second half when the Leeds charged back from a 2-0 deficit, Roofe and Lasogga acted as an impressive partnership up top in a two striker formation. Could switching to using both of them up top bring out the best in each one of them?
Roofe can track back and help win possession and/or provide outlets near midfield when possession is won in the middle of pitch, but he doesn’t have the natural finishing ability that Lasogga possesses. Lasogga, on the other hand, lumbers around the pitch like he’s run a marathon before the match. So while each one of them is incomplete as a striker, perhaps the two of them together will provide the “striker” that Leeds seem to be missing.
Or they won’t and we’ll be cursing out the Director of Football Victor Orta in a couple days for not bringing in a new striker.
