Eunan O’Kane sounded optimistic about Leeds United’s chances for promotion, with or without any more signings in January.
In regards to the question if the squad is good enough as it is now to go up, O’Kane was quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post:
I think so. I think we have a very good squad.
Obviously everyone has good and bad days and people will fire some days and other days have an off day.
But I think we have got a very good squad here and we have the tools to be successful in this league and to move higher up than that sixth position. I don’t think we have anything to be afraid of from any of the teams that we have played. We have given a good go to everyone and if people come in then they come in, that’s great to help us forward. If they don’t then we will pick ourselves up and go on with what we have.
On the one hand, it’s great so see that the Republic of Ireland international thinks that the club has enough to go up. On the other hand, of course he’s gonna say that. This is one of the reasons I don’t get too excited about athlete interviews, because they all basically trot out the company line no matter what, and try not to say anything that could get them, the manager, or the club in trouble.
So carry on then. O’Kane thinks the squad can go up, unless the board brings in a new player or two, and then those players will be welcomed with open arms and they will be exactly what the club needs.
