Been a Leeds Fan man and boy 40 years seen it all, do a 600 mile round trip even when we were 3rd division but how many times have I seen us falter at the last!

We need leaders on the pitch and a general/ tactician who can read the game off it. We have neither of these, as we are doing things on the cheap. Hence where we are.

A club our size with our history deserves better and although Bates has stabilized the club it is not in our nature to be also rans, ever. The defence is shocking (has been from day1)and the strike quality to thin, if Larry is still with us next year (will give him 10-15 games) he needs to take a good look at himself to see if he and his management team are really up to the task. Once again this season we have been sublime and ridiculous, but disappointment is a bitter pill and these last 5 matches for me have been an insight into our teams metal strength and serious questions have to be asked.

To all you grayson haters, he has spent nothing, we are way above our projected place in the league, if he had spent millions and failed bates would sack him in a breath, see my comment about close season and transfers, will be a different team next year.the only way to get out of this league and survive in the premiership is to win the championship by a mile.

I have been posting on this site for several weeks now suggesting that Grayson has lost it OR Bates hasn't budgeted to go up yet due to the debt arrangements. Bringing in, as predicted, Bannon and Livermore was a huge mistake. Playing the other players out of position where they has regularly shown they cannot cope; persisting with Payntor who was never a good signing (as I also pointed out). Not bringing in a defensive midfielder and a CH to help shore up the defence and allow Somma to play up front with Becchio. (Note: if there were no holding players available he should have stuck with what he had and not made matters worse by bringing in the players we did not need). All these problems were entirely predictable to anyone who knows anything at all about football. I did say on this site, after the Notts. F. game we wouldn't win another one this season. I think I will be right unless top six is out of the question before the last two games in which case we might win if it doesn't really matter. Grayson is either not that good (see the bad blip last year or its a strategy that is aimed at keeping Leeds in the Championship until the club(Bates) really wants to get promotion. Still have my season ticket for next year. Hope its not as frustrating as this year. I don't mind the fact we have given away a good position, that happens in football, its just the way it has been handled.

Leeds r almost certain set to miss out on the play off and it all down to simon grayson and the defence which hasnt been any good all season lets sack grayson and bring in a top qaulity manger who can kick the team into shape and get us promoted next season and bates needs to get his money out and buy to qaulity players instead of these rejects that don't do any good

I do know which players will be coming to the club over the summer but i do know Larry will be out the door, the way the team has slumped over the last 10 games is a disgrace and the buck stops with the manager - good riddance and hang your head in shame Simon Grayson.

To ed, which players do you think will be leaving us in the summer?? surely we will not let kasper, snodds or max go??? what do you think?? {Ed007's Note - Again, I think a lot depends on your league status, and money talks in the modern game, so I am not risking the wrath of Leeds by predicting anything lol}

In reply to ed 007 - where's he buggering off to, Stoke?! Bolton??? Or even worse, staying at Chavcastle United. . . . ;) {Ed007's Note - I have no idea to be honest, but I think he will want to stay in the EPL, so unless you can make the play offs and go up, I don't think he will drop down a league}

To Ed - As a Smith fanatic I would love him to come back but I know the majority on here would not be too pleased (UNDERSTATEMENT!) however. . . how likely is it??? {Ed007's Note - Not very likely, IMO, sorry}

Not a rumour, was just wondering does anyone know how much money leeds will have for transfers if we do not get play offs? im pretty sure bates will make sure its limited, but its clear we need an improved defence to get promoted and you don't pick up quality defenders for nothing these days. what do you think ed? any names??
