Believable31 Unbelievable24

Absolute crap. and yes leeds are a bigger club than huddersfield

Agree0 Disagree0

Its true on official site now. season over. grason out

Agree0 Disagree0

Forgive me, i checked all sites and found nothing, its finally on yep

Agree0 Disagree0

Grayson out because snodgrass had his appendix out? are you off your head?? its an injury. were 8th in the table 1 point from 6th... lets see where we are come may. if we dont make playoffs then ye i agree get a new man in. but grayson deserves the season..

Agree0 Disagree0

Even Jose couldn't get us promoted on this budget give it a rest.

If people seriously think Graysons doing a bad job then you must be in a dream world, yes some of his transfers/loans have been awful but what do you expect when your fishing at the bottom for freebies or not wanted players who don't demand a high wage?

All Graysons targets went to bigger clubs who offered more money, which always leaves him buying last minute losers that nobody wants and then the chairman etc makes you idiots believe we deserve promotion...

Grayson got us promoted unlike the previous managers and has made us into a stable championship team on no budget at all, I'd like to see any other manager come in and work under the pressure of Leeds fans when he's working with a L1/lower champ budget and is expected to work miracles and get us promoted instantly.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why does grayson deserve the season he's had 3 seasons as leeds fans its us that desrves something we desrve better than a man in charge that cant get players to sign with the same excusses we nearly had a couple of playes in but it just didnt happen and we now settle for second rate loan signings GRAYSON OUT SOON I HOPE

Agree1 Disagree0

Shut up crank, Grayson took us from nothing to where we are now, with nothing from Bates but threats, he's the best manager we've had since we were in Champions League
Who else would seriously want to come in and have no transfer money at all, only you cranks who play Football Manager

Agree0 Disagree1

Grayson is tactically inept, however he has done well despite this and with a show string budget, give him the season

Agree0 Disagree0

What's the point in changing managers mid season. Grayson has got us to 8th with half a season left. A slight improvement on the first half of the season will at least give us a play-off place so get behind the manager and the team instead of trying to dishearten the lads! if Snodgrass is out for a while, then look on it as an opportunity for other players to step up and not a nail in the coffin!

Agree0 Disagree0

U lot are cranks that dont know the facts grayson has had money to spend bates has gone on record and said that he has the gradel money to go with what he didnt spend in the summer he hasnt spent it coz he cant attract decent players coz he's the dullist manager we ever had

Agree0 Disagree0

What are you talking about. We have only received a portion of the money for gradel. The rest will come over time.

Agree0 Disagree0

Obviously know what i'm talking about more than u as the bates interview said a percentage goes to the fa the 1.6 million that was left goes into graysons transfer kitty with what he had left from the summer that he didnt spend i'd read up on ur facts before posting crank

Agree0 Disagree0

But if we dont have him we whant have nobody to take hes space

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh if Bates has said Grayson is sat on millions then it must be true. I mean why buy decent players when you can trial people and scrap around for bargains.

People are idiots if you believe Grayson is sat on millions and is just refusing to spend it.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just a question for all those who want Grayson out. Which was the last team who were on the verge of the play offs who changed their manager and got promoted that season? I can't think of any. But I give you nottingham forest as an example of what can happen!

Agree0 Disagree0

Crystal Palce were 19th when Dowie took over and got up via the Play Offs so its not impossible. I think the problem for Grayson at Leeds is the expectancy level, most clubs would be happy to be where we are and so don't sack their managers.

Agree0 Disagree0

A few questions? 1. Who could come in and replace Larry? 2. Who would want to come in and replace Larry? 3. Given the budget we've got no matter who did come in what the he'll could they do? If we got rid of Larry wouldn't it cost us to get rid of him and wouldn't that money come out of the funds we have available for any potential transfers derrrrrrrrrr? 8. How many teams in the championship would swap positions with us I'm guessing all the ones underneath us? 9. I think ever one is forgetting that there are 11 players on the pitch whose responsibility it is to do what they've been instructed in training and let's not forget get paid a fortune for 10. Isn't it about time we all got behind Larry and stopped slagging him off that's what we used to be famous for, we'd sing our hearts out back the team and the manager even when we were getting beat........finally I go to every home match cos I can't afford to go to away games. Our average crowd was 27,000 that's now dropped to 22,500 what the hell happened to you lot wether Bates is there or not we still have a team to support and right now I think they need us more than ever MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Most clubs arnt leeds who deserve better than a manager thats been in the job 3 years and dont know how to sort his defence or his best starting 11 and has deffinatley lost the dressing room he has to go the sooner the better for the sake of the club

Agree0 Disagree0

The severance package for Grayson will be about a 1 million to get rid of him i say keep him and give him that mil to spend

Agree0 Disagree0

What give him that mill to spend on more second rate players that no1 elsa wants

Agree0 Disagree0

It seems to me that a lot of you so called 'fans' want Grayson to fail just so you get to say 'I told you so'. Just get behind him and the team or go and support Bradford.

Agree0 Disagree0

Grayson has had 2 seasons to sort out the defence and we are still no further forward. Attacking wise, we are as good as anyone in this division but his time is coming to an end and KB will need to bring in someone more high profile to tempt better players to join us to move us to the next level!

Agree0 Disagree0

People who believe that its graysons fault for not signing players need to stop playing football manager. in the real world, grayson goes to bates and harvey with a player or list of players he wants, and it is then there job to agree a transfer fee, and also personal terms with the player/s. Grayson has nothing to do with this, and is clearly as frustrated with bates as the rest of us, due to his inability to agree terms with players.

You have to question what the board is doing when they cant sell a club like Leeds to a player, and they go off somewhere else, eg. ipswich (bowyer and andrews)

grayson has done a great job with the resources hes been given, so get behind him

Agree1 Disagree0

I'm more than happy to give Grayson the rest of the season as it is very unlikely we will get relegated and if he signs the likes of Clingan in January it is not detrimental to the team and it would be minimal fees as he only has 6 months left on his contract. Then if we finish mid table this season, sack him and give a new manager funds and the summer to rebuild, a new manager could get rid of the deadwood Grayson loves to leave lying around in a bigger transfer market

Agree0 Disagree0

Are all you Grayson fans conveniently forgetting about that the alleged rumours surrounding Obrien leaving the club. At a recent function at the club I have it from several ex players that the reasons for his departure will shake the club to its roots when he is sold this month. Its well documented Graysons personal life is in turmoil and you think that has no bearings on the performances on the pitch and in the dressing room? Do you think he has the drive and determination to get us out of the championship. We have one of the lowest valued teams in the Championship with probably the most loan signings. Its an intrinsic part of the job being able to attract and sign or re sign the best players we can and for me it hasnt happened. We are very good at losing all our best players and it isnt just money that determines this outcome. I feel we have gone backwards since we blew it last year when we ran close to the top of the table all season then dropped away at the end to finish outside the playoffs not good enough ! This season we have at times been abject and yesterdays game against Barnsley was the worst i have seen us play for many seasons. I and several pals who are season tickets holders for many years are very worried about the future and i am certain we will have to make significant defensive signings to even make the play offs this year.
