How about Mark Hughes?????

Believable10 Unbelievable20

We couldnt afford his wages and how many would want to work for Bates

Agree0 Disagree0

Good manager but we have a manager grayson hasn't been sacked or left so why talk about new managers to replace

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats a joke in itself!! but maybe billy davies or aidy boothroyd!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Cos he aint no good hes had god knows how much time to sort out the back 4 an there still s**t so there 4 he aint done his job properly lets be fair he has had more than enough time to sort them out

Agree0 Disagree0

For the past 3 seasons we have struggled to find the right blend of defensive players. If promotion is to be a realistic target then we need to sort this problem now.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think he's too old, he just wouldn't have the required pace.

Agree0 Disagree0

Davies wouldnt get on with bates at all you saw him publicly slag off forest board for no money

Agree0 Disagree0

we should try bruce and o dea in centre back what do you think?

Believable14 Unbelievable22

Bruce is better than the rest but has fallen out with grayson so i doubt it'll happen although i would also like to see him play with o'dea

Agree0 Disagree0

Play lee`s at center half with o`dea bring in another right back in with pace lee`s will be a crackin cb but if we keep playin him at right we could ruin him

Agree0 Disagree0

I totally agree would be the best partnership

Agree0 Disagree0

Have any of you ever seen Bruce play? He's not good enough and he will be on loan to a league 1 side as soon as the 93 days cover the Xmas period

Agree0 Disagree0

Getting lucas and dom matteo to play would be miles better than the current group of duff centre halves we have at the moment MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

All our CB's are uesless bar none except lees who I dont call a CB as he is not playing in that position atm. What seems to happen is a CB or two get dropped for being useless we bring in another CB he turns out to be useless and then people forget that the ones who aint in the first team are useless and say they should come back in. A good defensive coach can make average defenders look good by getting them well organised and in the right positions on the pitch and making them aware of were they need to be. We clearly dont have a good denfensive coach and so the merry-go-round continues.

Agree0 Disagree0

There are not four defenders good enough to play in the leeds back four fact. Doesnt matter what combination of personnel you have. We need four new defenders end of.

Agree0 Disagree0

Playing four traffic cones at the back would improve the team

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes I have seen Bruce play and he's as good as anyone we have on our books.

Agree0 Disagree0

O'dea is a donkey,,could'nt get in celtic team so what we doing with him at leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

If bruce plays again leeds must pay 100,000 as part of transfer fee........ thats why he does not play even when fit..

Agree0 Disagree0

all these so called rumours about signing front men, am i the only leeds fan who can see, that its a central defender we need, (an half decent keeper would not go a miss), young full backs lookm like prospects, midfield ok, very strong now upfront,

Believable13 Unbelievable12

I agree we only have one capable cb in o'dea the rest are shocking we also need another rb lees is very average and gets beaten far too often

Agree0 Disagree0

To be fair Lonegran has dome OK. If you have poor players in front of you it makes it very hard. He is by far better than Ankergran on last nights showing.

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with you but a half decent keeper? Lonergan's been fantastic! As well as either a new defensive coach or centre backs, I think we need a new right back too. Tom Lees could be a great central defender but he just aint a RB. That Lawrie Wilson Grayson was looking at could be a good buy. MOT!

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree Totally up front and midfield look strong. central defence is woeful. I have no suggestions on who to bring in but do we even have a defensive coach? if so when is he going to start the coaching part? Its not that they dont try or dont get tackles in its their positioning every time they are caught ball watching

Agree0 Disagree0

I think you may be the only Leeds fan who doesn't think our keeper is a big improvement on our last few keepers.
I do agree with your other points though

Agree0 Disagree0

You're right about the centre half, but dont talk s**t Lonergan is a good keeper and i prefer him to schmeichel

Agree0 Disagree0

Bromby cost us the three goals last night- full backs look good- if O'Brien is any way near fitness play him alongside O'Dea until we sort something!

Agree0 Disagree0

Tom Lees is a centre half mate, and will be a bloody good one at that. Larry missed the boat with Clint Hill good player and can play left back or centre half gone to forest. Whatever your taking can I have some please because Lonergan is brilliant but he is only as good as the defence in front of him and we all know there s**t

Agree0 Disagree0

If we brought in a right back our problems would be sorted. I'd like to see Conolly given another shot because Lees is a great player but not so much going forward. Yes Conolly had a poor start to the season but last season he was very steady!

Conolly Lees O'Dea Pugh

Agree0 Disagree0

Fully agree with you mate. Goal scoring seems to come freely but defending seems like a bad word. Lets get the defence sorted and the keeper and maybe we have a chance for promotion.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lonagan is 1 of best keepers in that league if not the best. its full backs we need,and move lees to cb with o'dea

Agree0 Disagree0

What lonergan a great keeper the only reason we are conseding goals is because of are defence

Agree0 Disagree0

SG should have played lees as CB and bromby as RB....would have solved all the problems on the night me thinks

we do need another CB and a RB (as cover for lees) but most importantly we need to sort out defending from set pieces (we have no clue?!?) a new defensive coach is essential...radebe maybe hopefully??

Agree0 Disagree0

No you're not. you're the only Leeds fan that thanks we need only one central defender! we need three plus left and right back. 3 cleansheets since march, cracking job grayson. time for simple Simon to go. cannot believe bates has suffered this person for so long. LS10 white

Agree0 Disagree0

Centre backs are all poor get shut of Bruce O Brien and Kisnorbo, we need to bring back Kilgallon and spend some decent money on another, and and I would swap Pugh and White round, Aidy would be quicker on the wing and Pugh would show more experienced at the back.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't know how people can press unbelievable on here Of course we need a CB

Agree0 Disagree0

Defenders need improving, but Lonnergan has been one our best players along with Clayton and McCormack

Agree0 Disagree0

None of our defenders are good enough. Killer might help but we should have broken the bank for Woody. Lichai would help too.

Agree0 Disagree0

We were after Lichaj until he got injured and is now out for three months....you tit!

i would be inclined to swap white and pugh around to se how that goes and put lees at centre back and try connolly again or brobmy at rb

Agree0 Disagree0

A decent keeper?? Are you crazy? Lonergan has been our best player so far this season! Made 2 top saves against palace which helped us win the game. A penalty save at 1-1 vs bristol which helped us win the game... He is better than schimechel and we got him cheap. Lees needs to be dropped and white needs movin into midfield. Were too easy to get at. Bromby to rb paddy (or try lees at cb) with odea with pugh at lb....

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds have sign Danny Pugh on loan. He was sign to strenghten the LB position and the LM. With this signing White have a chance to use his pace to move forward to support the midfield and forwards.
Hopefully Simon will bring in RB and 2 CB and a CM.
It looks like Simon is bringing back former Leeds players that have left the club.First it was Keogh,then now it's Pugh and the latest rumours I've heard its going to be Kigallon. Why sell them and then bring them back.Also heard Delph will be
coming back on loan. The defense still looks weak.
Priorty must be given to the RB and 2 CB. Our 2 CB
IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH.Always leaking goals. Need
to bring in somone who is commanding,pacy and able to organise the backline. Simon needs to address this issue fast before the situation gets out
of hand if not we can never get to the PREMIER LEAGUE. Leeds Fan.

heard around leeds that Radebe is coming in as a defensive coach only a rumour but surely he will teach how to defend set pieces and no nonsense defending also i think you cant blame an the defence, the back 4 has got to have experience playing together give bruce a chance and o'dea could work, and as you should of seen tonight it would work alot better with ugh LB and white LM.. thoughts?

Believable5 Unbelievable17

I hope and pray this rumour is true but alas i feel its a fantasy again!! bates is the problem with his tupney aipney wage structure!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont blame bates GRAYSON does not want lucas at leeds he is too popular with fans maybe they want him as new manager when results go wrong?

Agree0 Disagree0
