I don't what they have got to do with it but the Jamaican football federation say they do not know the full extent of the injure but he hasn't fractured his leg. Happy for him!

Such a shame just about the whole heart of our team at the moment.

Why oh why does warnock take off ehd bring brown on when we are one nil down. Yes swap hall for white( who by the way is useless and has the footballing brain of a four year old, not too mention how someone who is so quick can't even beat man down the line!) the only thing I can think of is if they've had a big barny at half time about taking Green off, who in my option along with Norris were our best players. Also why didn't Hall start from the off, not fit enough your having a laugh. He was probably our best player second half and looks quick and lively, something we've been missing all season. Desperately need a couple of loan players in now with Rudy breaking his leg ( hope you get well soon rasta mouse.... We all love ya!

Rudolph Austin's leg is not broken according to twitter

Warnock to walk,realised the job is too big the fans are fast losing patience with same excuses of funds for players.Well Mr Warnock 9 of the starting 11 today are your signings which in my opinion have taken us backwards.again adding to my other opinion that Grayson was unfairly treated and should have been trusted with further funding.(chris B)

i think people are getting abit ahead of themselves we are only in november plenty of the season left. what happened to leeds fans having sticking with there team and manager and cheering them on.

Agree0 Disagree1

It took NW a season to sort QPR out,so dont expet miracles,with the right funding hell do the job,stick with the guy and the team,its all weve got at the mo.

Agree2 Disagree0

League 1 here we come!!
never thought NW was right for us, I for one didint think thing looked so good when jonny howson was sold. That lad is leeds though and though. questions should have been asked back in jan, Grayson is God to leeds, not in 20 years have we had manger that loved our club like him, had he been given the money like Nw has we would been doing top , also if anyone remembers Bates said we were offered beckford twice in jan but he said NO. Lee Peltier 600,00 , luke fanny 200,00 wast on money!! most money grayson spent was 250,00 on pugh a player that should be playing at LB, why in hell sell adam clayton? NW keeps saying leeds are missing that CM class, them why sell him? forget the loans... get the youth players, that way we know they are playing for the shirt...

Agree2 Disagree0

I disagree. I think we are short 2 or 3 players away from being contenders. We were the better team today 11 on 11. Just rubbishty luck with Austin. If Warnock isnt our manager it's because he will have walked. He hhasn't been given the money he was promised and new team or not you cant seriously contend in this league without serious investment.

Agree2 Disagree0

10 Nov 2012 23:57:56
I agree, i would love to see Lenighan, Gimple, Poleon, Payne, Dawson, the Turner twins given a real chance, they are some of our own!

Agree2 Disagree0

Not just are they his signings, I am questioning his tactics. We go away and sit back and try to catch teams on the break, this is hard to do with a team with no pace

Agree0 Disagree0

At least everyone will know that NW not right man for the job and its time for him to go. His type of players style of football not working time for a radical change in direction before we are back in league one.

Agree0 Disagree0

The budget he has his more than twice that of Millwall and where are they compared to us? A good manager would make us competitive not relegtion fodder

Agree0 Disagree0

Sack warnock before he religates us he dont give a rubbish about leeds or it supporters get grayson back

Agree0 Disagree0

Wrong tactics, strange and ineffective team selection, poor(if any substitutions result - Bates + Warnock =Championship middle order at best. Fans haven't made it any easier. Constant attacks on the chairman has just made him more stubborn and bitter. Disgraceful exhibition at Hillsborough (Not just the pitch invasion) alienated the players manager and chairman even more. Result no real positives since and it was generally average at best before then.Dont know what the answer is but this is the worst I have seen it in forty+years. We have been down before butwe still we pulling together now there is so much' in fighting'and disillusionment it is difficult to see a way forward. I dont think a couple of wins will change the underlying problem. Possibly a clean sweep of management and a few new players if the money is to do it. Don't know.

Agree0 Disagree0

I was a big fan of NW and delighted when he joined. Have to say that despite the lack of funds, he doesn't appear to be motivating or getting the most from our current set of players. time to put up or shut up Mr Warnock. MOT White4Life.

Agree0 Disagree0

Accusing warnock of using same excuses as grayson. keeping grayson was not the answer regardless of what's currently happening at ht. he had us in the same position and what happened?

Agree1 Disagree0

Don't agree at all. Warnock is a class manager full of experience. Fact is it's the players that can't handle the pressure. You don't beat Southampton and Everton comprehensively then fail dismally against mediocraty. The dragged on takeover has got to have had an affect on squad building, morale and cetainly the support. GFH! Now is the time! Put up or jog on! You are destroying our club more than Bates (who I dislike). Time to add the class to the backbone!

Agree1 Disagree0

Dont know how you can say warnock is class, grayson's team out played man united, got robbed by the ref at arsenal, robbed at liverpool. grayson was fired with leeds in the top ten! i dont remember QPR beating us when they went up either. Austin is the best thing about warnock coming to Leeds. sam byram could have been giving the go ahead sooner under grayson maybe? i dont believe for once if warnock had 10m he wouldnt do any good with it.. look at the rubbish he brought to QPR when they went up? Kieron Dyer, i think it say it all. mick McCarthy should have been the manger.

Agree0 Disagree0

Grayson will neva leave hudds to come to leeds with a chairman they have its onwards and upwards for thm while we still suffer with one of the worst teams in this division!

Agree0 Disagree0

Lee Peltier would not get in Towns first eleven

Agree0 Disagree0

Managers fault, players fault, chairmans fault, takeovers fault, referees fault.Sick of hearing it. Ever thought, just maybe, the fans at the game aren't helping?

Agree0 Disagree0

Job too big for warnock?! Stop deluding yourselves guys, you have been a very average championship side for a couple of years and unless the purse strings are loosened you will remain so. Being a club with a big fanbase doesnt guarantee success - ask the geordies what they have won in t last half century and they get 30k pw more than you do!

Agree0 Disagree0

Wasn't at the game today. I appreciate your comments as you were there, Would be good if more people who were at match posted some views of what game was like. Obviously the result says we scored 1 and conceded 6. Looking at timing of goals scored by Watford we must have being doing okay even with two men down as we conceded 4 goals in last fifteen minutes.

Looking at match commentary (not OS) we were still looking to score until final whistle.

Why were Diouf taken off at half time was he playing badly?. I don't rate Varney, White is not living upto expectations of good things, Brown - I don't know what to say!

NW, I like our manager but he needs to get real and admit he is not happy with our form. His tactics and selection are really baffling, the way we play hoof and chase is awful. I want to watch slick, passing, attacking, entertaining football, as Leeds United supporters we deserve better.

Can't wait to see the squad for Millwall ! Feeling pretty low at the moment, but still Leeds United bonkers obsessed.

LUFC always.

Believable32 Unbelievable2

Diouf took a knock from what I saw he was getting knocked all over. Pearce was a yellow card at best and austin was just purely unlucky but we played fantastic just unlucky again.
Luke ls11 {Ed013's Note - I wouldn't say fantastic mate!}

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't think we played that bad either. Four of their goals against our 9 men were counter attacks after we were throwing players into attack and got caught short at the back- which is to be expected with only 9. Today was a freak result. Pearce decision was a bit of a shocker and certainly a game changer. Who wouldn't ship 5 goals playing 9 against 11. Lets forget it and move on.

Agree2 Disagree0

Unlucky with decisions and Austin. White shouldn't be in the squad let alone the team. Diouf had a bad game and Kenny was average. Byram was great as normal, green really suited right back and should have been left on (white should have gone off). Varney really impressed with hall when down to 9 men. Really put in 100% but playing against 2 extra players is a forgone conclusion.

Agree1 Disagree0

Played fantastic? the persons [ushed toomany men forward leaving a terrible defence exposed more than normal. We ship more goals under colin and score less and as for the hoofball tactics. Open your eyes and give ya head a shake we are serious relegation fodder. kenny and pearce areonly two i'd keep asfor the rest, journeymen at best ls10 miggy white ps why are alleged men taking "man" bags in the geldered end?

Agree0 Disagree1

I was at the game and agree with the first 3 posts. I would add that Norris also had a good game and deserved a goal.

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree with previous posters. 9v11 is never going to be a tight game. The football league show on BBC were praising Watford for playing well, even with 11 men we were carving them open quite easily with hall and varney. rookie mistake making 3 subs by half time, especially with a man off already. not worth the 6 hour round trip from bristol.

LS

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2012 20:18:17
i really hope luke varney gets some incentive from all you so called fans slating and blaming him for everything. yes i agree he has not had the greatest start to his leeds career, however if there are any attacking players who have not suffered the lack of confidence this lad has at the moment then id love to hear them. his work rate is excelent and he will come good after a goal or 2. on another note i hope we will see austin again this season. love the guy and gutted for him..

Believable24 Unbelievable9

10 Nov 2012 20:55:53
i agree at first i didnt really rate varney but his work rate is great and i think he is the sort of player who needs another attacking player who is fast paced and a good goalscorer to team up with.

Agree1 Disagree0

Lets NOT do to Luke Varney, what we did to Billy Paynter! this just doesnt help the player or the team end of LEEDS LEEDS LEEDS
LtKK

Agree1 Disagree1

Varney never stopped running today even at 9 players and won almost every header he went for. Won the penalty due to his pressure on centre back who in my view was last player and should've walked.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Nov 2012 14:10:53
Hmmm! I wonder if this is true or just another false trail like all the others? MOT! White4Life.

Believable14 Unbelievable9

To be honest they have been saying for months that the takeover is imminent - personally i cant see it happening. I'm starting to get a bit bored with the whole saga and wont believe its happened until i see Bates drive away form the club for the final time

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2012 14:59:54
Just seen the team to play watford today and becchio is on the bench and varney is playing!! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!! the only thing i really feel is a great choice is austin in central defence! but becchio left out again and varney in!!,i dont see it in him at all! we need mc cormack back asap in my opinion,without him we are toothless!!

Believable6 Unbelievable6

Recall Poleon from loan also. No pace in the team, pointless him being at Bury when we are so thin in attack.

Agree0 Disagree0

Its nothing less than absolute joke, varney has done nothing to get the shirt, he put green in as 3rd centre back why not austin ? Although greens done nothing wrong to be fair to him, ryan hall on bench again after scoring 4 in week and no loan signing what a load of b******s

Agree0 Disagree0

Becchio wont be playing at all 2day used all 3 subs by start of 2nd half, lees for green after red card and at half time ryan hall and michael brown on 4 aidy white and diouf

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree poleon get back take over not going to fix it . we going down sorry to say.

Agree0 Disagree1

Good choice Austin in central defence? Leed 1 Watford 6!! An dyes I know we were down to 10 men, but still WTF

Agree0 Disagree0

Varney played well, especially the last 20 minutes. He was playing in his favoured position and held his own. White is the issue with our team. Dont think he should be in he squad let alone the first team. Shame about Austin (who didn't play in defence btw).

Agree0 Disagree0

We was down to 9 men actually not 10..

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2012 14:47:35
What is it with Warnock varney,I can't believe he prefers him to becchip,how can you leave your top scorer on bench for someone who hasn't scored in league this season.

Believable12 Unbelievable3

Not only that - What is it with Warnock and White? Did the manager promise to play him every game in whatever position was available as an inducement to sign a contract. Varney is bad with some good points White I give up on. He has been worse than poor this season. One goal against everton doesn't change anything when it comes to the league.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2012 14:13:04
Warnock described Faurlin as the best midfielder he has ever managed. He can play the ball, is composed when on it and offers something different to what Rudy Austin delivers. I would be very happy if we get him on loan!

Believable9 Unbelievable3

We might have to. Considering that Austin is out for ages.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2012 09:13:42
Takeover is going to go through, it's just Leeds are messing around and taking ages but it is definitely going through. Source David Haighs brother in law.

Believable15 Unbelievable20

It might be but how do you know his brother in law?!?! haha B.S

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2012 08:27:13
dawson on bench for todays game
My boss knows his dad and he told
Him Last night Warnock phoned him
yesterday to say he wants him to
Be on the bench and get a feel for
1st team and the atmosphere
but he will prob not get on unless
We are a few up towards the end

Believable17 Unbelievable7

Completely true i know is dad aswell chris been given squad number 33

Agree0 Disagree0

He won't get on then unless there is a major switch in player mentality. This Leeds team at the moment is 50% more negative than it was towards the tailend of last season with only 1 or 2 players wanting the shirt.
The occasional spark is simply not good enough. With the exception of the Everton and Southampton (bottom of the premier and fielded a much weaker side) games there was absolutely no shape against Barnsley, Birmingham, Burnley and Brighton. Perhaps we should request a handicap against teams beginning with B.
I know it's a negative post but this needs to be addressed NOW and not when and if the takeover is done otherwise come Christmas we could be the strongest team in the championship.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

Is he that midfielder who just signed a new contract? Looks pretty good for the future if he is!

Agree0 Disagree0

He going to change our season round isnt he. Not. We need someone like Michael Dawson to shore our defence up

Agree0 Disagree0

No hes not but hall on bench again.

Agree0 Disagree0

So he works for aquainteriors then ?
southleeds

Agree0 Disagree0

I think u will find he is

Agree0 Disagree0

No but he knows Lindsey and other directors at aqua

Agree0 Disagree0

We need the yorkshire light infantry to shore up our defence. JD

Agree0 Disagree0

We need Warnock out - totally wrong manager for LUFC, we play football not hoof it up the field. I watched us against the Owls and Brighton, we were crap! time for a change in manager (I said all along he was the wrong choice).

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Nov 2012 07:25:41
David haigh tweeted this morning that all parties are working flat out to get this deal done ASAP

Believable11 Unbelievable9

Flat out this has been dragging on for months,are they trying to get the longest record for taking over a football team

Agree0 Disagree0

All the time this takeover is taking has started to cause unrest among the squad

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Nov 2012 23:25:05
In the yep Warnock said I know the loan player very very well. That leads to Ali Faurlin, But I'd be amazed if Qpr let him go. IMO we need pace in the side. But for a long time we have been crying out for a C A midd.But if it is him as good as he his he can't pass to him self, as most off our team seem in capable off stringing 2 passes together

Believable12 Unbelievable2

100% agree,i couldnt be more in agreeance,we need pace dearly,non of our front men have true pace only mc cormack and when he returns he will need assistance,everytime i have watched leeds this season the opposition have been far quicker and in my eyes 15th is amazing considering how bad we are,green should be playing asap,before he was injured he was bossing things and for me would make a good captain,peltier is useless! MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Its the usual bull we get fed before every home game re takeover and possible loan signings, still be stuck with usual team today

Agree0 Disagree0

Well Done the lufc PR machine - before every home game its the same. Take over nearly there & loan signing coming in. Just a ploy to sell tickets I'm afraid

Agree0 Disagree0

Faurlin starts for qpr today in place of mackie, so maybe its mackie or more likely a load of s**t AGAIN!! to try and fill elland rd up

Agree0 Disagree0
