Time for Grayson to go bloody awful defending snodgrass and howson non existent again time to move on enough is enough

Believable25 Unbelievable17

I totally agree, what was Howson doing !! why didnt Nunez and the 2 finns start?? give Becchio and McCormack a rest... our defence is terrible Gj

Agree0 Disagree0

I like Grayson but no defender brought in over the window and none in the pipeline as yet btw if any1says bates is to blame Grayson said the money was there so that means either he lied to please master bates e.g a puppet or he's not a great manager either way not looking good and not playing Bruce because they've fell out is the most feeble un proffesional thing I've heard for a while give him a go he might just might save u Grayson

Agree0 Disagree0

We were playing the best team in England you muppet , they put 8 past arsenal, 5 past bolton 1 player costs more than our team one player earns more than all our players put together big gulf in class but expected .

Agree0 Disagree0

:S oh come on guys Scumchester were a class above not appropriate to hit panic button when we were playing the champions 2nd string who would walk into most sides in the premiership let alone championship..they brought wellbeck on in second half who scored goals for fun for hull so ..hmmmm hey ho yes defence is absolutely atrocious and yes howson and snoddy were poor tonight but that just underlines how classy the scumchester were - sadly....

{Ed006's Note - Danny Welbeck for Hull? When was this?}

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree that we NEED to bring in atleast 2 new defenders (I wouldnt say no to a whole new back line) but getting rid of Grayson isnt going to change that. I think...... if he was given some money by bates and got abit more of a "back bone". He would be alright......

We was never expected to beat Man U as well...... even if we played well

Agree0 Disagree0

Muppet man u can still set up a defence to defend stop wearing Rose coloured spectacles u person and start watching the game if u really no what you are on about!

Agree0 Disagree0

I sort of agree Man United were brill v Arsenal, but we didn't play that team, we played a good team, but only Giggs & Berbetov are close to 1st team players in the 1st 11 today. Man U 2 players at centre back, one being a centre midfielder and a reserve full back, and we didn't challenge them at all, we froze, and seemed to be admiring their play, which is ok (not good, but ok) if your watching, but not playing against them, I expected to have a hard game, but we looked in awe of them, I can take being beaten by a better team, but can't take a team with no fight, and no heart, time for Johnny to get dropped along with Snodds, both looked way bellow par, they looked as if they expected to play every game, and didn'y need to try.
Nunez looked good when he came on.

Agree0 Disagree0

Anybody remember the last time we kept a clean sheet ?,how long has larry known we need defenders,?has he taken us as far as we can go ?i am begining to think so championship next season as well and only 7/8 games gone .hope i am wrong.

Agree0 Disagree0

GET RID OF GRAYSON AFTER LOSING TO THE PREMIER LEAGUE CHAMPIONS ARE YOU A F*****G MORON!!?? yeah we was poor but dont lay the hammer down at the manager, if wedve won you wouldve been singing his praises and you know it

Agree0 Disagree0

Have yous forgot? man u are one of best teams in europe all their players and youngsters could cope in the prem, grayson will do the business this year do not worrie

Agree0 Disagree0

Forgetting about last nights game, as it was class against muck and only to be expected, but...

Leeds started last season shipping goals in all over the place - In January, SG did nothing to rectify the defensive problems... they then continued to ship goals all over the place throughout the remainder of the season.

In the summer, SG has, in my opinion, again done nothing to rectify the problem and we are still leaking goals left, right and centre.

Leeds don't have a proper defender worthy of the name and haven't had for some time.

SG a good manager ? LMFAO !

Every man and his dog knows Leeds are woeful at the back and have been since day 1 LAST season - What has the wonderful SG done about it ?

**** all !

Please SG - Go - Go NOW !

Agree0 Disagree0

The quality of defender we need to improve our back 4 costs a lot more than we are willing to pay in wages.

Wake up - Bates is the problem by offering League 1 wages for a "promotion chasing" Championship side.

Agree0 Disagree0

Grayson decides how he spends the money. We pay higher end wages for this division, just not on defenders for some reason (O'Brien and Kisnorbo excepted I suspect)

Agree0 Disagree0

Grayson to go cos we got beaten by a team who are the best in england?? ok it wasnt full strength but that team they played last night would comfortably finish top 4 in prem league. grayson has taken us forward... and will continue to do so. doesnt hide the fact the back 4 need sorting but bromby is solid. in grayson we trust

Agree0 Disagree0

We didn't get beat by the best team in England, we got well beaten by thier 2nd reserve team.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don,t care who we were playing(albeit the poorest manu team seen here for decades)that performance was crap,the players say they know what this fixture means to the fans well THEY DIDN,T SHOW IT.

Agree0 Disagree0

Finish in the top 4? are you having a laugh? the team played last night would struggle against the teams relegated last season, they had 1 recognised first choice defender playing and knew we were that weak in defence flooded the team with pace, we looked pedestrian against them and at times did not look interested.

Grayson has known for long enopugh that we need to defend better and done nothing about it, the last 2 seasons we have bottled it at the end of the season - the man has no idea of how to motivate the team, if he can not motivate them against the current champions what hope does he have against Brighton on Friday?

Agree0 Disagree0

Please stop blaming grayson and players nothing will change until bates fu*ks off or snuffs it 31 000 fan and 3 000 of them summers vote with ur feet let bates know us morons done have to put up with him or are stuck with him i wont be going again until bates as gone as much as it pains me and it seems like many more are doing the same

Agree0 Disagree0

The way SG looked last night he looked like he is resigned to getting the sake. Didnt look bothered like the rest of the team. Look at his defensive signings ove rteh last 2 years and you coudl sack him on just that. His persistence in plaing Howson week in week out is alos really annoying. Howson is best in a five man midfield but when we play 4 in midfield he is better on the bench.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Sep 2011 22:40:30
Iain Hume or Adam Hammill anyone?

Believable8 Unbelievable13

20 Sep 2011 22:29:49
Thought Vayranen deserves a place in the midfield, however he needs to replace Howson...............! missing in action (again)
Snodgrass - The January transfer is looming

Believable26 Unbelievable6

Your right there mate both have bin shocking for a wile

Agree0 Disagree0

100 % agree snodgrass will go in Jan he just doesnt seem to care. Gj

Agree0 Disagree0

My great gran deserves a place in midfield, completely and utterly non existent. Before we start worrying my grans wage demands or bringing any other midfielders in please can we buy a left back, right back and two centre backs first, preferably ones that can run quite quickly.
Dont know what was more depressing, being comprehensively outclassed from start to finish or Gormless's pathetic comments afterwards. This squad and manager are a million miles away from being good enough to challenge for a top six spot this season, in fact we're not even that close.

Agree0 Disagree0

Drop them both, give one or two reserve teamers a chance. Shame we havent got an Owen or Berbatov to call on !

Agree0 Disagree0

Vayranen seems to have a bit more can tackle pass and looks up for it. Snodgrass poor in every game up to now a shadow of himself last season

Agree0 Disagree0

Wish a certain ex no17 wasnt so expensive whatever you say about him he wouldve had the experience and a bit of extra edge to kick their arse a bit since there's an axe to grind with fergie.....would've loved that but never mind......heyho
On a serious note, Jonny does appear to lack a bit of bottle when needed, the likes of Kisnorbo are much harder, stronger characters and we are missing a Batty type player

Agree0 Disagree0

Clayton wasnt at the races last night either... u gona be calling to axe him aswel? leeds were out played all over the pitch so if you MIA on howson applies... then it applies to all 11 players!! get behind the team not on their backs! why are our 'fans' turning fickle?

Agree0 Disagree0

Clayton not at the races....? He was our best player by none, and not the first time we have said this

Agree0 Disagree0

Howson should be stripped of the captaincy and he should be played at centre back as i feel he would be better for us there! and i agree clayton was by far and away our best player for the last few games he has played!! i would like to see nunez and clayton together in the centre of the park fro the start!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree Howson was not up to it in first half, but genuinely thought he chased and pressed well after the break, particularly in tracking back to disposess Owen, when Snodgrass had lost him! However, Varynen deserves a chance, looked good.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well done Leeds another brilliant defensive display ,looked awful against manchester united reserve reserves.

Believable18 Unbelievable7

Reserves my foot. Berbatov alone is worth more than our entire squad. Any one of there players would quite easily be in the first team of any premier league team. I do agree our defence is s**te.

Agree0 Disagree0

Get a grip what do you expect against man u they had an awsome squad out tonight which was all midfielders and attakers so 3.0 was good. Yeah we should have put more effort towards goal.

Agree0 Disagree0

I expect a lot better than we showed TERRIBLE !!

Agree0 Disagree0

I expect a team and tactics that allows Leeds to at least make a game of it, we had neither. Not bothered who we are playing, expect so much better than what i saw tonight. Still, at least the new executive boxes were all full, shame about the awful defence and lightweight midfield, cant have everything i suppose.

Agree0 Disagree0

Get a grip ? Apart from 4 or 5 of their team that started nobody had heard of the rest. ffs they played with 10 men for the last ten minutes. We are so away from being premiership quality.Two many players living on past reputations and disapearing for large parts of the game i.e Howson and bloody moping sh#te Snodgrass. Clayton is the only class player in the team and he will bugger off as he'll get p@ssed off running himself ragged in a one man midfield. Take the jam jar bottomed rose tinted glasses off and realise we are mid table championship quality at present. If they dont want to bleed for this club then get rid

Agree0 Disagree0

Get a grip is spot on Howson very poor and Snod has thrown in the towel. We need a complete back four and two midfielders to compete with Brighton let alone scum reserves. KB is bleeding us dry

Agree0 Disagree0

No passion no commitment no skill no interest no defence need i go on

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought Bromby did ok last night, unfortunately he'll get dropped anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

As much as I hate to say it but Man u played us off the pitch ,so far away from the prem it's scary I'm just glad they played some juniors and not the first team what score would it have been then ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Howson to centre back and nunez and clayton to play in the centre of the park for me,snodgrass needs to be dropped! and white is too gung ho and liabitlity!!

Agree0 Disagree0

The team should be Clayton, Becchio, McCormack er...........................Looks like 8 signings needed, make that 13!

Agree0 Disagree0

Howson not fit to wear the shirt never mind Captain. How can you have a leader that disappears for 90 minutes

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Sep 2011 19:12:09
Anyone going to Brighton Friday...!
Will be setting off at 10am to make sure - anyone know of any boozers we can all meet up maybe outside the town before kick off

Believable3 Unbelievable5

Lansdowne outside the station in Lewes; ten minutes down the line from Falmer. Might come down to drink with the Leeds as I live there

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Sep 2011 13:30:16
anyone know how many is expected at the match tonight?? COME ON THE LEEDS! 50 quid a ticket i hear wtf??

Believable2 Unbelievable6

I would guess at around 34,000 and whoever told you that tickets are 50 must have serious issues.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't think it'l be that many, the tickets weren't selling very well. Think there'll be around the 28,000 mark. Not sure about kop but I was told that the west stand is 36, Top of east stand is 38 and bottom of east stand is 36

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry im in ireland was thinking euro's lol still 38 pound is expensive!

Agree0 Disagree0

Its almost a sell out every were in the ground barring the west stand. north south and east lower are sold out. a few tickets remaining in whats open of the east upper. and west never sells out lol. attendance around 30,000 id say. tickets cost 36 in east lower. think 38 in upper tier is most?

Agree0 Disagree0

Expect about 32/33000. A few restricted view remain in the West stand and quite a few available under scoreboard in the south/west corner. Most tickets remain in the upper East.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tickets are 46 in the Bremner suite wherever/whatever that is

Agree0 Disagree0

38 is expensive but you know mr bates, he should wear a mask and a striped jumper. Il be watching at home, would of liked to be there tho. Come on leeds!

Agree0 Disagree0

Worst of all are the kids prices - if your kids are not members it is 36 plus booking fee. Me plus 2 kids = 111. I'm gutted but won't be giving kb the money.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope the atmosphere will be that of old boo the scum off the pitch lol never know what will happen chelsea had 25 shots v scum just had no luck 3-1 scoreline flattered man u i think!

Agree0 Disagree0

Anyone know what it is that's so special about the new east stand upper (so far) for him to charge extra? Then again... I suppose he doesn't really need a reason.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Sep 2011 10:24:38
O'brian to start against man u tonight

Believable3 Unbelievable27

Hope he does and puts berbatov in his pocket, no as bag as everyone says he was unfit at start of the season

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope not, why not go with Bromby at RB, and Lees to CH alongside O'Dea. Or just straight swap Bromby for Paddy. What has Bruce done wrong?

Agree0 Disagree0

Im with u on that some of brucey games last year were quilty

Agree0 Disagree0

No no no do we want to let in 8 goals like arsanal no keep bruce off the pitch hes just not got it this session

Agree0 Disagree0

Alex Bruce has been injured, according to official site he was one of five making their way back from injury along with Becchio, Paynter, Bromby and someone else (Parker maybe?)

Agree0 Disagree0

Remember when bruce played against arsenal, he was brilliant! start him alongside o'dea or paddy

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah, i think he should start, put a second string side out.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bruce was prone to the odd mistake but then again name a Leeds defender who wasnt last season!?

get bruce back in for Paddy - Bruce will go through berba in the first 5 minutes. great tackler!

Agree0 Disagree0

Bruce and SG had a bust up last season. An academy player who I know did a training session with them and heard Watt and Snoddy talking about it. They were then quickly told to keep quiet by Glyn...

Agree0 Disagree0

Play o'brian he is best we hav give another go

Agree0 Disagree0

If o'brien is the best weve got i fear for us

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd try Bruce or Bromby in front of our defence or try 5 at the back with White and Connolly playing as wing backs. Cant be any worse and we aint signing anyone.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Sep 2011 09:44:35
out of favour leeds striker billy paynter is of to derby on a 3 month loan deal with a view to a permeant move in jan

Believable18 Unbelievable9

Why would SG loan him to a Chamopionship team? Surely a L1 side?

Agree0 Disagree0

Probably so they have less chance of scoring against us when we play them

Agree0 Disagree0

Simon wants to loan him out to see if he regains confidence and scores a couple. see Davide Somma.

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Sep 2011 08:45:37
Pugh loan deal done, just waiting till the end near to end of month so that his deal (94 days) doen't run out over the xmas period.
This will be made permanent in Jan.

Believable18 Unbelievable9

Sounds a good move, you have then got the option of playing him at lb and moving Aidy White to LM. or the other way round, is a good option to have

Agree0 Disagree0

Always liked pugh, thought he was versatile and efficient.

Agree0 Disagree0

Its a 93 day rule and i think that means signing him friday would see him through to jan 1st?

Agree0 Disagree0
