grayson will stay in his job until monday. if leeds don't win he's gone, which considering the fatigue after 1 day's rest and the morale and current form, you have to say is very likely. worrying times indeed

Believable8 Unbelievable10

I hope Simon Grayson keeps his job, what our fans need to realise is that though we are going through a bad patch Grayson has lost two key players in Howson and Snodgrass. Give him the transfer window and stay in charge until the end of the season to prove some fans wrong. Grayson has LEEDS UTD at heart, more than some mangers in recent times and Bates is the one should be getting the stick until he puts his money were his mouth is. Come on lets pull together we can still do it. Support Grayson and sing the LEEDS forward and upwards.

Agree1 Disagree1

They should have a like button just for the 2n comment get bates out not Grayson.

Agree0 Disagree1

If only the players had the passion of the fan's!

Agree1 Disagree0

Larry your time is up. His signings have been terrible and thats why we are going nowhere that and his strange tactics.

Agree1 Disagree0

Gary mac didnot get the chances grayson has had look at the sinings gm brought in ie snodgrass bechio etc Who has grayson ot taht has been any good for more than 5mins

Agree1 Disagree0

Try Gradel, Somma, Pugh, Lonerghan, Schmeichel, Clayton.......

Agree1 Disagree1

To the person who thinks grayson should keep his job as we're going through a bad patch-we go through a bad patch every year under him and the blip lasts 4 months each season. This blip is ongoing since Jan 11

Agree1 Disagree1

But then you have McCartney x2 which cancels out all the other good signings. Bessone, Bruce Collins, rahubka, to name but a few. Grayson is also tactically inept. But the point is I've been a Leeds fan all my life i would die for Leeds united but it's getting to the point where I can't stand to be there every week because of graysons tactics and bates. Somethings got to give and people need to open there eyes to it.

Agree1 Disagree0

I just hope this is true...i was impressed with grayson last season; we exceeded expectations but every team needs to go forward every single season and make improvements...no one can say that leeds are better than they were this time last season, the table doesn't lie (2nd last season, 10th this) its time for change!

Agree1 Disagree0

Simon Grayson is going to make four changes
to the side in jan
Beckford
Gradel
rb/cb
Smith

Believable12 Unbelievable48

Take gradel out and add another winger than it is quite likely

Agree0 Disagree0

Why dont you f--- off with the Smith crap,how the hell would he improve even our team,hes well past it,may as well get Radebe and Batty back as well eh,get a grip.

Agree1 Disagree0

Funny we can only dream about players we had in league 1!

Agree1 Disagree0

I disagree with the previous comment I think that smith will Improve our squad a fair bit and play either mid or up front

Agree1 Disagree1

I agree with the previous comment that disagrees with the comment before that. Except for putting Smudger up front.

Agree0 Disagree1

Smith cannot play upfront and people who think he can haven't seen him play since Manchester so you can't no how good he is

Agree1 Disagree0

Smith might happen.he would walk into the starting line up at moment.beckford cost 4m for leicester so no chance.gradel was sold coz he was homesick.no chance of returning so soon.

Agree1 Disagree0

At least Alan Smith played his heart out for Leeds,not like the current load of s**te we've got at the mo.Time to give the boy a chance to redeem himself to the leeds faithful

Agree1 Disagree0

Why do people keep talking about smith 1st thing if he wanted to come to us he would've come in summer when the talk was rife about us signing him he wanted too much money(before you all say everybody needs to earn a living ye we do but what he has earnt since leaving us hasn't exactly been peanuts now has it?)2nd why can't he get a game with Newcastle or anyone else interested ? Ye he was fantastic in his time with us. But we now need someone who scores goals maybe add 10-15 per season to wade in when strikers are lean! Like a Keith Andrews type player nostalgia is great but it remains in the past!!come on Simon/ bates get some class in for a change and push us forward for rest of season MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

He was a big part of getting Newcastle out of the championship.

Roberto De Matteo odds on becoming Leeds Manager have shortened to 5/2 following defeat to Barnsley

Zola - Curbishley - O'Driscoll - and Mark Hughes make up the next best bet

Believable22 Unbelievable9

My personal feelings on this... Di Matteo, Curbishley and O'Driscoll? Good choices. Zola and Hughes, not so good. In any case, we're likely to end up with a virtual nobody anyway. The tried and tested managers would have to be desperate to consider coming to Leeds at the moment.

Agree1 Disagree0

I say stick with Grayson.he deserves some loyalty from us after what he's achieved over the past three seasons.new managers don't mean success,just ask forest fans! I think he deserves a chance to put it right,let's judge him at the end of the season,when he's had the chance to spend some money on decent players.as for today it was embarrassing to be there.if Varynen and Connolly play for Leeds again I'd be amazed.

Agree0 Disagree1

You could also as Norwich, Southampton and Palace fans the same question

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes to de Matteo or Gus poyet with Ray Wilkins as assistant.no to Billy Davis as he always falls out with the board then the players.I would like George Graham back,don't think we ever would have had the problems we had if he had stayed.not against sparky as manager as long as he brings Bowen as his assistant

Agree0 Disagree0

Keep the faith on a bad run but will come good only 10 points of 2nd still long long way to go !! MOT

Agree0 Disagree1

Grayson should go, he is a crap manger bring on someone new,who can win games

Agree1 Disagree0

What about oleary always said he had unfinished business

Agree0 Disagree1

Bring back o leary at least he knew how to win games not loose to a crap team like barnsley with no names wtf get rid of this goose

Agree1 Disagree0

I have seen a gradual decline in our performances really since Obrien walked out. I think team morale is low and we appear to have lost the confidence and swagger we had in the early part of the season. This seems to be nothing to do with signings or money but to do with a small time manager trying to manage the expectations of us as Leeds fans. The results and performances since November has let us slip to 10th and we are in danger of being in free fall. I think this is resultant of Larry losing the dressing room as the many rumours about why obrien left seem to involve him and his personal life. Its time for a big time manager who can re instate fortress elland road and some re investment in the football and not just the infrastructure Mr Bates ! Grayson out for me

Agree1 Disagree0

You are on the verge of the playoffs a few points behind 6th but what ever you do don't steal Ian holloway from us like you stole Simon Grayson

Agree0 Disagree1

Grayson to get sacked!

Roberto Di Matteo favourite for job

Believable19 Unbelievable13

I would have him any-day did well at MK Dons and West Brom

Agree1 Disagree0

I think today was the final nail in the coffin for grayson but i really hope it isnt Di Matteo who gets the job but who could we get of any note ? we need a motivater and a manager with experience of managing a team who havnt a pot to pee in could billy davies be the man ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Larry has gone stale I'm afraid.

Agree0 Disagree0

Grayson has created his own downfall. His antics has lost him the respect of the players and it shows on the field for all to see. Just hope the next man isnt another lapdog to Ken

Agree1 Disagree0

Can anyone tell us the source of the Di Matteo rumour? I haven't seen any mention anywhere else, but it's well-known he would like a return to management. Can't see him wanting to come here really; we're a bit un-glamourous without Snodgrass and Howson. A lot of arduous re-building to be done. Too late for this season, I fear.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just seen goals on local news, i had to leave the room before my blood boiled over! The players looked like they dont want to play for him, they stood and watched as the Barnsley forwards just walked through and scored. Please sort this mess out and put Grayson out of his misery before it is too late Bates. But please replace him with someone who can motivate people to perform above their ability and make sure that Snodin gets bullet too because he has no idea either.

Agree0 Disagree0

Roberto's odds now at 5/2 with leading bookmakers slashed in half in the last 2hrs

Agree0 Disagree0

Give larry january to try and sort things out
if we have money to spend then it will be,a also have to remember that we have 2 key players out in howson and snoddy and they are the backbone of the leeds team we cant play well without at least one of them in the team

Agree0 Disagree1

Larry has done amazing job with no money, look at the team today who was free who's on loan and only 2 players we payed money for.

Agree0 Disagree1

Grayson is not at fault . It is Bates who has not allowed enough funds to be invested in the team. Grayson has had to operate with no money for players and he has had to recruit players who are not up to the standard required. I hope Bates does not sell our better players.How can he fill the corporate places with a poor product? I am coming up to 50 years as a Leeds supporter and I want to be following Leeds in the Premier so they have two years to do it.
Promotion is still a possibility if we get some good players in.

Agree0 Disagree1

To the above post give larry til jan we are Leeds we should have gd players in reserve who can cover and do a job for the team. At the mo players look out of ideas and lack motivation and the players coming in look the same and short on confidence none coming in look capable of winning a place in the starting 11. All us fans know what the problems have been for a while yet the club havnt addressed the problems. I fear Larry has lost the dressing room and if this is the case he has to go

Agree1 Disagree0

I think you are all forgetting that we started the season with a very poor defence. No investment in that area has caused this issue. Unless we have an overhaul of our defence we can forget the playoffs because that is the best we can expect to achieve this season. Also Di Mattaeo is at Chelski and they are not setting the world alight at present. Also do we want another old boy connection look what the outcome was like when Dennis Wise was in charge.

Agree0 Disagree0

Get the chelsea out of leeds!! or at least dont get any more in!!

Agree0 Disagree0

It has to be said that Grayson is passionate about Leeds. It's a shame if he has to go because a number of gutless individuals obviously are not. Maybe a serious cull of those not pulling their weight and and some serious recruitment of proper talent (now's the time, Ken!) would enable SG to turn it around. I'd love to know the identities of the "one or two who may not play for this club again" (SG on Sky page); anyone have any idea?

Agree0 Disagree0

If i am honest i have never been confident in larry myself,i hope he goes this next few days but my worry is who we will get in and if bates will invest any money which to be honest i feel is a non starter! its no good getting a new manager and expecting him to work with two bob! i mean most free signings are free for a reason!! lets face it! MOT for life!

andros townsend is joining on loan from spurs

If we lost at barnsley Unclekenflying in to axe him monday
Hate to say it but after the last month and what i have had to watch - it is torture
Better performances in Roundhay park

Believable21 Unbelievable6

The plot has well n truly been lost, no team unity/spirit, no desire, no f***g clue, no wonder...time for Grayson to go.

Agree1 Disagree0

Lets hope he does get sack monday this has been dreadfull to watch

Agree1 Disagree0

If we lose at barnsley, how about humiliated, shocking absolutley shocking, on this site 2 months ago i slagged our keeper and people argued he is one of the best ihe league
really

Agree1 Disagree0

After today's debacle we have managed 1 point off Barnsley in 2 seasons and conceded more goals than I dare count The team is in free fall - we must get rid before the season is lost. We are Leeds united And mid isn't good enough

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Dec 2011 12:00:22
Pugh to join for a fee of upto 500k. Keogh to return to wolves. Expect 2/3 loan deals to be done, andros townsend, keith andrews and keogh again at the end of jan when no-one buys him. Bates will say the wages cost a bomb and this is them spending up. you know it's true.

Believable14 Unbelievable9

Forget promotion for next 5 years because Bates living in seventies with his take on wages fees etc. Only just discarded his Deidre Barlow specs coz he couldnt get spare parts anymore. Lets face it unless you are prepared to speculate you wont accumalate !

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

I actually know him, he was in Spain for 3 months and has now returned to the UK, he is not at Accrington as he has signed a pre contractual deal with Atletico Madrid.

Agree0 Disagree0
