Not bothered about losing today but disappointed that many of the fringe players or returning players didn't take the opportunity they were given. OK, TC can take the blame for picking them but these are players who should be fighting to establish themselves as regulars. The other real damage is Saiz getting himself sent off when we really need him. The only good thing is that it highlights the need to strengthen both to improve the first 11 and the squad.

The Middlesborough decision on Monk is interesting. You can criticise him for his style but then again, the board should have known what they were buying. A dodgy start but then won 6out of 10,wins today and gets sacked! 9th in the league. Clubs should take note if Birmingham City, not much more than a year ago on the fringes of playoffs with Gary Rowett, fire him, appoint Zola, disaster, spent loads of money on Harry to stay alive, sacked him and now bottom of the table and where is there x manager, guiding Derby County into the playoffs! I Hope that our chairman's support and praise for TC works. I think we are really building something that is going in the right direction, always need to keep fine tuning and I would like to see at least two quality additions in Jan, but sometimes patience and time works!

Spanishleeds, I hope and pray ever game and hope that works, patience is Leeds fans second name.

Spanish great post, I think it was more the way Middlesbrough were playing and not to mention the cash they spent . I do think it's Wolves and Derby for the top two, but we do have a window so my views could change . For us play-offs more than possible .


3.) 24 Dec 2017 12:14:55
Middlesbrough want an instant return to the prem and thought Monk was the answer. Just shows even with a large spending spree on players, Monk isn't the Great Manager he Thought He Was. He Left Leeds As We didn't Match His Ambitions. Never Nice to See Anyone Lose Their Job, But A Little Smile Today, He Will Pick Up A New Club As This sport rewards failure of you are a manager of coach. As to our club, quietly putting some points on the board. One game at a time, definately need to strengthen for the play off push. Happy Christmas fellow whites, m. o. t


4.) 24 Dec 2017 12:15:25
I feel our team are a good, top of middle, team. Not quite challenging for top two but of the nearly rans we are top of the pile. Of course 2/3 quality additions could change all that. Whether that comes in January or even next summer I do not care (I do actually but will rely on TCs good judgement) . PS However I will be more than happy with a long string of 1-0s to the end of the season!


5.) 24 Dec 2017 12:57:53
At the moment I would say Wolves are destined for the top 2 but, looking at our next half a dozen games, they are all winnable. Following those we are down to the nitty-gritty, Cardiff, Blunts, Bristol, Derby, Brentford, boro, Wolves. I reckon 15 or more points from that 7 games and we're in with a shout :) as ever . the eternal optimist MOT . ALAW


6.) 24 Dec 2017 17:06:29
Spanish No more complicated than Boro wants Pulls now he's available. They're upgrading so Monk had to go.

George the oracle does it again ! :)


8.) 26 Dec 2017 14:04:16
Spot on George, when you gaze into your magic ball can you still see David Oleary on the M62 in his taxi or has he parked up for crumb? Merry Christmas.


9.) 26 Dec 2017 18:00:35
It’s a results business most of the time and any new job is a risk really. Didn’t work out for Monkey at the ‘Boro but it’s a tough place. Best of luck to him in his next job as long as he doesn’t do as well as the Mighty Leeds Utd


 

 

23 Dec 2017 12:41:48
Another tough game today, one of those that could easily trip us up. Hoping the great crowd and the show of scarves will see us through, another tough 1-0!But that will take us to the half year point and I think a fair reflection of where we are. The key period for me during the second half of the year will be Feb! We need to show that we can take more points of the top sides and that should be our focus for the Jan window. Been an interesting year for our great club and let's hope we can really show that in the second half. Merry Christmas everyone!

Spanishleeds

1.) 23 Dec 2017 12:59:19
I disagree. I think we are lucky to be still 7th. I don't see any real quality in this league other than wolves. But don't see us showing anymore consistency than the average and don't beat the teams that matter. We shall see how 2nd half pans out.


2.) 23 Dec 2017 16:33:37
What Aus, you don't wish your fellow fans a Merry Christmas, you don't think it is Christmas or you don't think we will win 1_0?Merry Christmas Fella enjoy the shiraz!


3.) 24 Dec 2017 08:41:53
Spanishleeds you got that spot on can you do the scores to end of season so I can do my bets, have a happy Christmas 🎄

Just arrived back in the UK after a long and rough ferry journey from Spain so haven't seen the highlights yet. But 4-1 against the league leaders away, after 2-1 and then a red card, doesn't seem like the end of the world to me. I'm surprised that people think Radz will call time on that evidence. He wants TC to succeed, that means top six this year, his target and still not one that should be given up! I think the next two games are the important tests, we should be expecting to beat Barnsley and Villa are the type of team we need to be competing with for the playoffs. If we lose both those games, it could be a different story. But sooner or later we need to stick with a manager and let him build and i haven't given up on TC yet and i don't think the chairman has either.

Spanishleeds

1.) 24 Nov 2017 04:21:10
I think its good to be patient. But there are not too many chairmans of football clubs that would accept 7 losses 1 win. i'm hoping he carries on and turns it around but in my opinion, he is lucky to still be there. I haven't seen any evidence that he has the ability to turn it around. I think he is too light weight for this league. I think the team are capable of play offs. Think he lacks though. let's hope he proves me wrong.


2.) 24 Nov 2017 10:57:57
Agreed. let's preach patience, and hopefully, the ages of the 2 (new) signings underline the long term strategy of AR. Players maybe not ready now (altho if the situation demands? ) but can slot in next year or even the year after. My only question is, with all this young talent, why aren't we sitting on top of the academy league? I too think we should try everything to stick with the manager but Aussie as you say he doesn't seem to be capable of turning it around which is strange as the very reason he got the job was on impressing AR on how he would have turned around some of our previous losses. MOT.


3.) 24 Nov 2017 11:45:49
TC will not be leaving until the end of the season, the goal is play offs, but monk didn't make play offs and was allowed to continue, it wouldn't be financially sensible to sack a good manager. TC will stay, more good players will come, and Leeds will go up, one day.


4.) 24 Nov 2017 13:45:54
I disagree. I bet tc is gone by xmas.


5.) 25 Nov 2017 15:58:37
I'll take that bet, Aus? How much we talking? £100 say TC is our manager post Christmas. Would be confident in saying by end of Jan we will be top 4


 

 

26 Aug 2017 20:22:15
It's hard not to get too carried away with this! We still have players to come back to strengthen defensive options, we have options in attack and we have money to spend! Really pleased for Alioski today to get a goal, great for his confidence as well. Profession leadership at the club and a quietly confident coach and an international break to settle everyone in!

Spanishleeds

1.) 27 Aug 2017 08:59:25
And we are getting players in for the future, young talent not only in first team but youth squads as well. It is our time i think.

Great debate, shame all the posters can't all club together, buy the club, have whiteman as Chairman, Mike woody as Head of recruitment and George as the money man. MM can do food and beverages, AUs can do the radio and TV commentaries alongside eddie. Promotion in one season guaranteed followed by champions league qualification. Can't be that difficult running a successful promotion chasing championship club can it. No foreign rubbish, including the food, ban gloves and leggings and only let the fans in who are prepared to take their tops off during the winter games. Oh well we can only dream!

Spanishleeds

1.) 16 Jan 2018 09:05:19
Its not that hard. It shouldn't be. We got about 22 average teams in this league 3 good signings and we will walk it.


2.) 16 Jan 2018 09:16:47
Spanishleeds, Great post mate and true, we would have the best be reassured on that, Mikewoody and Ausman1 would be fantastic to, shame because we would be for the club not for a group of investors who at the end of the day want to make money and as much as they can remember that my friend, that why he went and asked KD who would be the best investment it’s all money money money, we are the fans which means we care about the CLUB.


3.) 16 Jan 2018 10:19:15
if all of the above is happening can I be player manager, I am a bit shakey in goal but at least I'm not foreign


4.) 16 Jan 2018 11:00:04
Bermondsey, bearing in mind your writing skills, I had you down for the programme and press office!


5.) 16 Jan 2018 11:07:51

Lol. How about getting Jeff back in as "club psychic"? "I predict the signing of a player, who's name will begin with a letter from the alphabet. I can't say which letter right now, but it will begin. with. a. letter. ! "


 

 

12 Jan 2018 23:23:08
I know that it's easy to say all games are crucial but got a feeling that this one against Ipswich really is. Saiz out Ayling out Viera out, new recruits not yet appearing, Sheffield United nudging us out of the play offs, 3 points would be a great boost. Think it's going to be tough but 2-1 to us. Come on Leeds show us some fight!

Spanishleeds

1.) 12 Jan 2018 23:52:04
Not a happy hunting ground for us, we have only won once in our last 10 visits to Portman Road and failed to keep a clean sheet in the last 13 visits. Will be a tricky game, will be lucky to get a draw. Hope I am wrong but can see us on the wrong side of a narrow defeat. But hoping for more and be very happy to be wrong!


2.) 13 Jan 2018 09:06:43
Mezzer agree not an easy place to go could be 0*0 for me


3.) 13 Jan 2018 13:42:34
Sorry mate to be negative, but when teams that we play are on losing runs, it usually ends when they play Leeds! I know it’s totally crappy negative, but that’s what usually happens! I think I need therapy! 😂😂

Cultural are just outside the relegation zone and there is concern that they could fall into the Spanish third, not what their investors want. It will be really interesting to see what impact he has as he will probably get a lot if game time, perhaps we have a recall option?

Perhaps that's the secret Aus, don't watch the games! Better for your blood pressure. I think earlier in the season when you weren't able to see the games we went on a good winning spell! Yesterday was a typical leeds nailbiter, 1-0 lead and six minutes extra time! Stay away from the tele next saturday!

Just a difference of opinion Aus! don't think we are losing games or points because of the goalkeeper. Our problem is that we have not been able to beat the teams leading the way at the top of the table and lack consistency, not the goalies vault. If he is as bad as you claim, he willl be replaces so we shall see. But he's a Leeds player wearing the shirt and I wish him all the best and hope he can prove you wrong!

I'm with you Wex, lots of criticism on here about TC whatever he does. Yesterday was always going to be tough without Saiz, Ayling and viera and very tough after Okane and we lost by one goal! Let's get behind the manager and the players and hold off on criticising what we have done in the window until it has closed and we really know how it has gone. I'm enjoying the season, I'm seeing positive changes at the club and I think we are better run than under bates or cellino. Still mistakes, still things to improve on, but going in the right direction. Remember winning and losing together!

I can see a team that has regrouped, is winning difficult matches with a young coach who is learning quickly and a team that plays for each other, that looks like a good Christmas present to me, Care to borrow my specs?

Because you never sound very happy! Lots of examples of money spent and success not produced, goodbye Mr Monk and well Done Leicester City for winning the premiership. The real skill is spending less and still achieving success and the way to do that is developing good young players, improving the players we have, using the squad and motivating the players. I think we are doing all those things and with a few key additions in Jan we can go up. Once we are up, it becomes a very different ball game but easier to deal with if the foundations are right. We are all allowed to have different opinions, Merry Christmas!
