I'd say that NW does have the heart of a lion, and as such will probably end up with MFC going down to L1 - fulfilling his prophecy of not staying in the Championship!Seriously tho' we need to husband the squad we have, add a wee bit of flair, add a couple of solid defenders and then inspire them to play out of their skins. Oh - and make them understand they will the core squad in the PL!
Bet you Warnock blames his successor fir not getting promotion!
@Enigma Zai "Im fed up of NW excuses and him continually praising himself he has been average".The results have been average and he's explained why. I am so bored now of football fans and pundits who can't see beyond the end of their nose when it comes to football matters. Team wins = manager good. Team loses = manager bad. Genius thinking.
...and further, Leeds United seem to be going down the same route as Arsenal, where they strive to promote young players through the ranks...only to have them 'bought', by bigger teams, in order to solve financial problems. Where would Manchester United be without Leeds United........?
It's no surprise that this 'great' club is underachieving now. Since the departure of David O'leary...when they almost regained some supremacy in major competitions, they have lacked any cohesion or consistency. With the arrival of Mr Warnock...and his self-proclaimed temporary post of manager, the team seems to lack any enthusiasm, culminating in the departure of Becchio,to NORWICH of all places!
This is just the reason I gave up going to watch football at Leeds United. Its all about getting as much money as possible. Warnock clearly has no allegiance to Leeds United whatsoever. How can they sell their top players and expect to get promotion. They can't even beat Huddersfield Town (who also sold their top player). They need investment in a team and a Manager who really cares, like Sir Alex
I really hope Warnock is retiring at the end of the season. I've got nothing against the guy, I just really hope that for his own mental state, he isn't leaving because he thinks he deserves to be in the Premier League.
LEEDS WILL ROCK U
...And by 'invest' I mean long term, long-sighted investment; bringing on the youth and retaining key players. The likes of Swansea, Norwich etc. do not have a fraction of the size of core support of Leeds United, or legacy, yet look at them compared to us. If that sounds like sour grapes it isn't, good luck to them, but for me it just goes to show what Leeds COULD have been, and still could be.
I've supported Leeds for nearly 40 years now (ever since some kid in my class had a Leeds sportsbag... I've never changed allegiance in all those years lol, despite being from Essex!)Strikes me that a great club, in a great city, with great supporters, has been let down time and again by lousy management. If only someone would invest in the club, it could be one of the true greats once more.
Lets be serious - its very very hard to get out of the championship by playing entertaining football.... so, play percentages to get promoted. Once in the PL, get ready to invest wisely - defend home and away and grind the results, after a season or two, then you can play the beautiful game... NW could, with backing at the right time that he did not get, do part one - no way could he do part 2
Can't you Leeds fans see the wood for the trees? all your problems lay with Mr Bates. What has he done for the club? absolutely nothing except sell all the half decent players for a couple of million quid and put nothing back into the club. No top managers will come to Leeds as they have to work on a shoestring budget so forget about premiership football it will never happen.
Get out of our club and get out now !!! We need a manager who's prepared to let the players play with freedom, get the ball on the deck and knock it around a bit not just hoof it up to a duck flinging striker and hope for the best. The new man needs to be his own man and not influenced by the powers at be and most of all he needs to bring through the talent coming through our production line.
Leeds United in the Premier League give me a break.
