A change of Attitude!..

League One Leeds United

comment on the article

It could work wonders!!!...

The players want to get it in them thick heads if they played with the ManU attitude then no team is this league would be able to stop them, I mean is it not more or less the same players?..

Our problem is the clubs in this league are playing us with the same attitude that we played ManU, and getting the same results!..

We can all blame anyone for what has happened, but when a team go into a game with a negative attitude then they will reap the negatives, simpler it doesn't get!..

Right you lot, your playing ManU on Saturday so go out and don't let them bully you, show them you are equal to every tackle, show them that you can stop them scoring, and show them you can score, and show them that they are no better then you!..

Ok Mr Grayson, its up to you to find the players in our ranks with the right Attitude, and if the first team ain't got it then put someone in that has!..

"Owen" its a shame a certain Premier team didn't come out with the right Attitude against a little old div 3 team isn't it, then maybe the bosses would be a bit happier then they where, or at least Fergie!.winkeye

I must admit I have only been to 3 games since we beat Man U, but I live in cardiff so its a bit tougher for me to make it with the kids and all. What has been painfully obvious though is the real problem - none of the players have the passing ability that is required to play the way we want. It takes 2 to play a pass, the passer and the reciever. The passer needs to put it into space, the reciever needs to make that space. VERY consistantly one or the other is lacking, meaning when they do get the ball forward the players don't have the time they need on the ball to make that killer ball, the great run, the effort on goal, whatever it is. I know in part this is down to the other teams we have played -credit where it is due they get close and tight and don't allow the space to play. Trouble is top players or even better than average players with good fitness levels can make that room or pass regardless of the marking. And the reason we lack that quality or fitness level is ultimately the responsibility of SG.

I have played for, coached and managed enough football teams during my years in the game to see the failings, and to know just how much more important these basic skills are than most of the other things that happen on the pitch. He needs to sort it out, I think he is the right man to do it he just needs to get on it.

As a Swindon fan I hope Norwich beat Leeds this weekend and then we can go and get a result at Elland Road. It would blow the race for automatic promotion wide open.

Let this be a lesson to all teams, if you do beat us we'll always still have the last laugh.

If a 1-0 cup win against Man Utd can have such an effect on Leeds, then this club has some serious problems to solve. Didn't they have a big drop in form last season too?

the manchester united result hasnt affected us at all. the amount of couldnt care less loan players our club is riddled with has affected our form. And when outsiders stop trying to link our dip in form with the man utd game the better becuase then we can actually get to the root of the problem and fix it. although it will probably be too late for this season given our poor form.

I don't think the ManU result has anything to do with what has happened at Leeds, if they'd lost that game then people would be saying they lost confidence after that game!..

Get the same attitude going what they took into that game then they should get the confidence back to put in a real fight and hopefully find the right results to help get back to where they are aiming!..
