Leeds manager Simon Grayson will keep his job regardless of the result against Barnsley. Grayson has been told he's got until mid January to turn the clubs results around before he's shown the door.

Why does he it was him who saved us in the game

why does grayson play pugh on the wing? he is clueless going forward! we should switch white and pugh round or play sam or nunez

Believable19 Unbelievable6

White has played on the wing for the last few games, and although he has pace, he has no tricks in his locker at all. another winger is a must in jan. (but we won't)

Agree0 Disagree0

White is wasted on the wing, he's a far better Left Back, Pugh is just a waste in general not better than Andy Hughes

Agree0 Disagree0

The problem with Sam and Nunez is they have a tendancy to drift infield and leave us exposed on our left, Pugh offers that extra protection and fills in behind White when he goes forward. If we weren't going through this bad patch we wouldn't be too bothered about the left side, it does work.

Agree0 Disagree0

When White and Pugh first started playing together with White at left back it seemed to work well; as White went on the attack Pugh would fill in at left back and the 2 of them seemed to have a decent understanding. This then went belly up when White started at left midfield as a winger since to me he is a better left back than winger and Pugh isn't quick enough to play as an attacking left-back

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed pugh should play at left back as white is clumsy and should play on the wing

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe I've been watching different games to everyone else but i'm sure i've seen both white and pugh swapping positions and against derby even snodgrass and white swapped wings a few times, I don't see a major problem down the flanks, they provide good crosses and stop pleanty coming in, it's through the centre were the problems are, we're exposed by poor centre backs, toothless centre midfields, and misfiring strikers, M.O.T

Believable6 Unbelievable14

Yeh, this page is transfer rumours, and also Bruce is on loan, so good one

Agree0 Disagree0

Obviously you don't keep up to date with the going's on at ER. bruce has been recalled do your home work before commenting.

Agree0 Disagree0

I would still be surprised if Bruce got a game and either he's fallen out with Forssel or he is unfit as he doesn't get a look in and will be gone in Jan

Agree0 Disagree0

Lonergan, connolly, o dea, kisnorbo, pugh. midfield of snodgrass, clayton, brown. McCormack and Becchio

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed forrsell should defo get given a chance

simon grayson was given 4 games from the watford match to keep us in play offs or glen roeder and ian dowie will take over with dowie asssitant , roeder manager

Believable3 Unbelievable33

Heard a strong rumour Ruud Hullit is in the frame {Ed025's Note - now that would be a mistake..

Agree0 Disagree0

Can I have some of whatever you've been on glen roeder please,everybody knows Simon has been given the season so stop speculating

Agree0 Disagree0

I know gllyn snodins nephew and he has been told this by ian aka his dad whose been told by gllyn

Agree0 Disagree0

In the run up to the Watford game we were 5th and on a good run! He might have been given 4 games from now...

But to think that the current manager would be told who would replace him?? Get real

Agree0 Disagree0

bruce recalled for the weekend from huddersfield, shows you how clueless grayson is. get him out now bates!!!!!!!!!

Believable15 Unbelievable20

Yeah clueless, loan market closed, transfer market closed, injuries to key defenders, 2 games in 48 hours and a player playing at another club, get back to whatever world you live in

Agree0 Disagree0

He's not clueless, you are! Who would you rather play, o'brien or Bruce if we get another injury.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ur mad we need to give Grayson time and why was Bruce ever sent out on loan in the first place

Agree0 Disagree0

Bruce had a clause inserted in the loan deal so we could do what we have done in calling him back. Decent player but never given a run in side, like everything time is important, clearly some of the people who post comments on here must be the best in what they do, i think not ! Give us a break please and go and glory hunt over "The Hill!" Have you ever heard of working with what you have got it's Bates who controls the purse strings and obviuosly either cant or wont spend money on the team preferring to spend it on the ground that he doesn't own !

Agree0 Disagree0

Let's hope SG learns from his mistake send him out on loan in the first place.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would never of sent bruce out in the first place, he's better than o'dea, kissy in my opinion, and even if obrien was available bruce in front any day. 100% is what you get with bruce.

Agree0 Disagree0

Guessing Steve Bruce has time on his hands now he's unemployed by sending the last 3 replys. Fact is, Alex Bruce has had 1 brilliant,a few half decent and loads of sh*te games 4 us. He cudnt get on the bench when O dea was out or paddy missing so why now? Throw Gimpel in and see what he's made of and if he's no better than Bruce we can stop raving about him and let him develop in his own time. It's like this,if Bruce is the answer then the question is too diffficult this season !

Agree0 Disagree0

Fact is eh! please put this is your opinion it is not fact at all.

Agree0 Disagree0

Forget sg is manager of leeds he is manager of a club that pays average wages and pays average 1st division fees he has done well with budget buys and lonees he has stuck by us give him credit

Agree0 Disagree0

To the poster of the ' fact is eh,its just your opinion'. Is that all you could manage as reply? No comment on owt else other than I shouldve made it clear it was my opinion not actual fact . D#ckhead. Could probably have researched match stats to prove Bruce was M.O.M against Arsenal and average to sh*te in all the others but I couldn't b arsed. Missing the point sunshine.In my opinion (is that ok 4 ya Mr Picky?) ,we shouldn't have to b in a position where we have to bring in a player that the manager doesn't rate and rightly so( in my opinion)

Agree0 Disagree0

Skysports.com understands Leeds United are hoping to land Tottenham midfielder Andros Townsend in January

Believable32 Unbelievable5

And this man will save Leeds and get us promoted too. Him and father christmas.

Agree0 Disagree0

And I'm hoping to wake up next to Keeley Hazell tomorrow morning! Unfortunately, neither will happen - Townsend, if he does go on loan, is staying in London with QPR.
