Believable5 Unbelievable37

No he's not you idiot. He said that it's his fault he missed the start of the season, take anything you want from that but he isn't saying that it's his fault.

Agree0 Disagree0

You need to learn to read the small print he blamed him for not been fit and not having the operation which he was advised

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes i believe bridge wants to come to leeds despite arsenal showing interest...stop being riduclous and use one of the three brain cells god gave you

Although this is highly unlikely, man city have loaned a few players out without the recipient club paying anything towards the players wages.

bristol city to transfer list Maynard... worth a punt?

Believable22 Unbelievable22

Only if Bates has suddenly decided that he'll spend 5-6million on one player.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah it worth a punt but that will cost money and bates doesn't like spending money

Agree0 Disagree0

Out of contract at end of season bates will only talk to him in January to get him for free

Grayson will be sacked at the end of the season you heard it here first.

Only wish is that it was now! it's time to go well we can write this season off and wait for next.

Believable20 Unbelievable50

Where are we in the league you muppet? Why would we "write this season off?"

Agree0 Disagree0

What a tool. keep ya negativity to yourself. we are sixth and simon grayson has had a very tight budget.! MOT - up the leeds!

Agree0 Disagree0

It's nice to see there are some sensible fans on here! Write off the season?!. Every club has at least one blip during the season, if a draw away and defeat at home to a very well organised Reading side is our blip then that's acceptable! 6th place after only spending a couple of hundred grand, brilliant job by Grayson. Could be worse, we could be Leicester! (I live in Leicester, 5 mins from the stadium, you should hear their fans moaning!)

Agree0 Disagree0

You are an absolute idiot, go shout at Steve Kean or something will you!

Agree0 Disagree0

I dont see why he should be sacked and our season isn't really over as we are still in the play-offs but the way bates has been putting pressure on him in the press this week, it wouldn't surprise me if he is gone by January

Agree0 Disagree0

To all the replies so you believe that Leeds will get promoted this season then because that is what he needs to deliver. I know that he will not be able deliver that and Ken Bates comments today and yesterday state that Grayson needs to deliver premiership football for next year or he and his team will be replaced now thats a fact.

Agree0 Disagree0

How do you know that he won't be able to deliver promotion then? Are you related to Mystic Meg? For as long as Grayson is in charge and doing a good job (which he is) then just get behind him and the team.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'll remind you all at the end of season leeds will fin 8th

Agree0 Disagree0

Ive got Leeds to finish 10th at 12.1 with William Hills, I hope i am wrong and correct in some way

Agree0 Disagree0

The pressure being applied to Grayson and the players by Bates is purely down to the fact that over the past few years we fall away after Christmas and he clearly does not want that to happen again.
In regards to promotion this year, that is unachievable with the squad we have put together on a shoe string and I believe that Grayson has worked well to get us where we are. I personally think we are in an unrealistic position and see us finishing about 10th based on the quality of players we have.
If Bates puts his hand in his pocket in January then maybe there could be hope.
However I feel that is unlikely.

Agree0 Disagree0

There is no way we will go up this year. We are a poor side and in an unrealistic position, we were awful on Saturday. Snodgrass is our only player with any level of quality.

Agree0 Disagree0

Correct. Very poor side! And to the people who keep mentioning money, take a look at Leicester and Ipswich(2 biggest spenders)our squad is bigger then their's! We have too much crap on our books(Bates not to blame for that)Grayson has brought em in, so would you let Grayson loose with money??

Agree0 Disagree0

Anybody who says someone will be sacked at the end of the season may as well make up what jumper grayson will be wearing at the time - to$$er

Agree0 Disagree0

People like you should stick to playing Xbox games, you really are a discrace to this site, idiots like you should do your homework on the people and club you disrespect.... your shooting your mouth off about a man who is Leeds through to the bone, turned down prem clubs to finish what he started at Leeds, won promotion from the duldrums of league 1, just missed out on a second succesive promotion in 2 seasons by only 3 points! not spent silly money getting us into debt again, oh and we still sit in the play-offs now and all with a VERY VERY TIGHT BUDGET!
