    League doesn't finish until May mate, might want to hold back given Leeds' history and Bielsa's methods

    Im not sure if we will make top six, as we are a feeder club for Birmingham in January, but if we do keep our best players we could go very close this time.

    I'd currently fancy us to finish higher than our 10th last season.

    This will probably be my one and only post in here. No chance of us getting promoted as things are right now :cry::cry:

    You need to learn from our mistake and cut your losses on Rowett, much like Monk he just isn't good enough. The longer he stays the longer it'll take to fix for someone else.

    Every Leeds fan is expecting the wheels to come off. History dictates it's a matter of 'when' and not 'if'

    Funny you should say that as there are calls already on our forum for him to go. He is making some really strange team selections. I mean I love Crouchie but starting him over Afobe? Makes no sense. I also think that he should be finding a role for Bojan but he is leaving him on the bench and just throwing him on for the last 10 minutes. Problem I have in calling for him to go is just who the hell do you replace him with?

    I reckon you'll have a poor run of form over Christmas and during April and May... Whether that'll cost you I'm not sure.

    I think you made the wrong choice in the summer and the person you should've gone for is now at Swansea, Potter was the outstanding manager available during the summer.

    In hindsight I agree with your point, but I understand why Stoke didn't go for him. He was a bit of an unknown quantity really, yes he had success at Ostersunds but the Championship is wildly different to the Swedish leagues. He has a lot more egos to control than he would've done in Sweden.

    Doubt it. We won the league after we beat Norwich
    Shhhhhh

    We want to keep the pretence up that we’re going to win the league!

    I can see this point but even with that it’s clear to see that he is undoubtedly talented and would’ve been well worth the gamble

    It’s not really with hindsight, he would’ve been my stand out first choice if Pulis had left us over the summer. He had essentially worked miracles at Ostersunds.

    We've well and truly gone back to the Mowbray days. Good at attacking but an absolute shit fest at the back.

    Certainly exciting again. Currently 3rd so hopefully can maintain out form and we can Be around for the season..

    Special shout out to Moore, doing fantastic for his first permanent job considering he spent a total of 10m and having to lose numerous players and players staying who didn't want to stay.

    Definitely trying to play It quick on the floor out from the back but simply have clodders who can't pass.

    Our promotion hopes are simply down to Gayle/Rodriguez/Barnes/Phillips. If either get injured we will struggle.
    Back Line simply not good enough for top 2:...

    Having seen you on Saturday, I think you will be around the playoffs.
    Look great going forward, defence looks a bit jittery but I'm guessing that's just because they're low on confidence at the moment.
    Look a good side to me.

    To be fair i called it a while back before you lot got relegated from the Premier league. You were simply that awful as a team. Something like that isn't easy to repair. Had a feeling you would struggle again in this league..
